Glenn Hauser logs September 6-7, 2015

** COLOMBIA. 6010.1, Sept 7 at 0550, Spanish gospel music segué to bluegrass hymn in English. So La Voz de tu Conciencia is back! First log known since May 23. 0552 ID by YL, plus “música para —-“ algo. Respectable signal next to much stronger 6000 RHC music; and way better at the moment than propagationally degraded Tennesseans on 5890, 5830. See my recent report about why LVC was off, Russell Stendal arrested on false pretenses which even the FARC denied were justified. Nothing back on 5910 yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ITALY. 1368, Sept 6 at 2111, I can hear me during WORLD OF RADIO 1789 via IRRS via Challenger Radio (on the UTwente SDR, of course). I had been trying since 2104, but the SDR keeps dropping out rapidly; guess it taxes my RAM? Also I think on 846, but not on 1566 or 567 kHz. 2104-2115 is the filler-span during which WOR has been reported the last few Sundays by Stefano Valianti in Bologna and Tobias squared somewhere in Germany. At 2115, cut to definite IRRS Shortwave [sic] ID and on to some gospel huxter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 770, Sept 7 at 0612, Spanish music dominant, Fórmula ID, i.e. XEACH, 25/1 kW, Monterrey NL; nulling it, something weak in English, probably KKOB or KKOB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 1060v, Sept 7 at 0621, “La Raza AM 1060 y 93.9“ ID with usual LAH, from off-frequency XERDO Reynosa etc., Tamaulipas, the FM being XHRAW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6953v-AM, Sept 7 at 0212, pirate music with the frequency varying downward as I listen: from 6953.1 to 6953.05, to 6953.0 at 0213; 6952.95 at 0214. S9 signal but lots of noise from the Iowa storms. Logs here,23335.0.html
say it was Rock and Roll Radio, at *0141-0222*, also noting the drift, down to 6952.8 at the end (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6949.96-AM, Sept 7 at 0248, very poor signal vs Iowa storm noise; 0250 mentioning barometric pressure, which smax of the weather break during CKUT`s `International Radio Report` playback; that seems to be a regular thing here on Sunday evenings. Sheldon Harvey tells me, “I don’t know anything official about this relay. I have seen reports of it on the pirate boards but I have no idea who is behind it. It is certainly not anyone associated with the program. It may be just someone having some fun“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7269.0, Sept 7 at 0212, a net of hams on USB, not LSB. If it has a name, I have yet to hear it, and the exact frequency changes around here from night to night. KJ5GT, who is CHAVEZ, ALFRED A, in Albuquerque on his S9+25 signal says he went on a 50-mile bike ride today east of the mountains where the temp was a comfortable 77 degrees; also yesterday went “200“ miles south (presumably by auto) to Alamogordo for a hamfest, but not much of interest in overpriced gear. At 0218 over to W9RAN portable 0 who is in Columbus NE about to fold up as a storm approaches. At 0220 I find another USB ham but weak on 7290.0 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7425, Sept 7 at 0222, JBA signal, leapfrog mixing product of Greenville 7305 Vatican Radio over 7365 Radio Martí another 60 kHz higher — but the audio barely matchable is that of RM this time, not VR (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 10100, Sept 7 at 0225, S2 signal, no problem recognizing as Brother Scare, on 2 x 5050 WWRB which is // at S9+30. As I am watching the NRD-545 S-meter, I can see it varying slightly with modulation, which reveals this fundamental is not a pure AM signal tho it sounds like one (Glenn Hauser, OKI, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1789 monitoring: confirmed Sunday Sept 6 at 2300 on WRMI 11580, good. Also at 0330 UT Monday Sept 7 on WRMI 9955, fair. But the intervening airing on Area 51 via WBCQ 5109.7-CUSB is a no-show. Jean (correct spelling for this male) Shepherd oldie show was running after 0200, which is only half a sesquihour, requiring some filler at 0245, i.e. at 0253 check, neat banjo music with a brief vocal at 0255, hitting S9+25, better than usual for this transmitter. 0259 to montage of WBCQ program clips, ID, then more music, until 0304 succinct WBCQ ID is cut off the air before it can finish, just as WOR is probably about to play! I am monitoring on SW, not webcast. Still off at 0331, and then I fire up the computer, but by when I get to the A51 webcast at 0337, Hobart Radio International has started. Presumably WOR still ran there in the meantime. See also ITALY. Next:
Tue 1100   WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 0630   HLR  7265-CUSB to SW
Wed 1315   WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 1430   HLR  7265-CUSB to SW
Wed 2100   WBCQ 7490v to WSW

Full WOR schedule:

** U S A. 5850, Sept 7 at 0555, TruNews [sic] via WRMI, is playing back exactly the same announcement I heard 24 hours earlier, about expanding the ministry. Except I have happened to tune in a minute earlier, when Wiles is talking about having purchased at a discount a 40-foot ship container in Minnesota with a ready-to-go radio studio in it, which will go on to St. Kitts (Radio Paradise 820; so what happened to its studio?? Still occupied by the former owner`s caretaker?). Also starts Sept 14 evenings on a SiriusXM Channel. Salem Radio has approved T.N. as eligible programming on all its stations, to start with 50 kW Word-FM, 100.7, Dallas-Fort Worth [really KWRD-FM Highland Village, 98/98 kW] from Sept 14 at 9:30-10:30 pm CDT; hope later Minneapolis, San Diego, Colorado Springs, even Washington DC. Own FM station in Vero Beach FL is ready to go on air shortly, just awaiting arrival of morning show host; he calls it “WVRO-FM“ while the real call is
less impressive, WVRO-LP. Immodest Rick Wiles thinx he knows all the “tru“ info about religion and politix, and must build yet another evangelical empire (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 950, Sept 7 at 0240 UT, ranchera music from E/W, tentative KDCE ID in English. That`s the hybrid station in Española NM, 4600/80 watts U1, “Que Dice“, and this would be after sunset (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 950, Sept 7 at 0617 UT, ad for Oktoberfest in Fredericksburg, Okt 2-4, so obviously one of the two Texans; partial ID then for “AM 950 — Mix 102 — sports“. According to the NRC AM Log and the WTFDA FM Database, the FM of KJTV 950 Lubbock is 100.7, K264AN, and there is no “Mix 102“ known in Lubbock. But KJTV is news/talk/sports, while KPRC 950 Houston lacks the sports. No FM listed for it, but how can a major AM station do without one any more? KPRC website shows nothing but AM 950! No Mix 102 in WTFDA for anystation in Texas. The Mix monicker normally refers to music styles, not talk. Both KPRC and KJTV are supposedly direxional SW at night, not good for us, KPRC with 5 kW, KJTV with 500 watts. It`s hard to DF this as I have to keep local 960 KGWA nulled (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1070, Sept 7 at 0622 UT, promo for `Red Eye Radio` on WAPI 1070 and Nulling off-frequency 1 kW KFTI Wichita is not hard at night, and I was expecting KNX; WAPI, 50/5 kW, Birmingham AL is certainly unusual here. Night pattern is slightly CCW from southward; day pattern non-direxional which I suspect, on 5 if not 50 kW. Not only am I nulling KFTI but conveniently the IBOC from KRLD 1067 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 17485, Sept 7 at 0234, JBA carrier where nothing is scheduled now, adjacent 17490 poor in Chinese. 17490 is often the only signal barely making it on 16m at this hour, i.e. CRI Amoy southward from Beijing site. 17485 is used at other dayparts by Vatican DRM, CRI, VOA and jammers (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
