Glenn Hauser logs September 10-17, 2015

** BRAZIL. 4845.0, Sept 17 at 0116, sounds like futebol in Brazuguese, with splash from WWCR 4840. Daniel Wyllyans reported as of Sept 9 that R. Meteorologia Paulista had reactivated, clashing with R. Cultura in Manaus. More likely the former with the game, and BTW, weather monicker appears to be outdated/legacy (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11780, Sept 15 at 0600, RNA/RNB is splattering out to 20/25 kHz each side, but no spurs heard at 35v kHz intervals. The splatter is also unacceptable (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1791, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** COLOMBIA. 6010.1, Sept 11 at 0611, Elvis-like gospel song in English; 0620 canned YL ID “5910, Alcaraván Radio y 6010, La Voz de tu Conciencia“ — but still no reactivation of 5910. 6010.1 anyhow doing pretty well to make it on the PL-880 with reel-out antenna inside a motel in Santa Rosa NM.

6010.1, Sept 15 at 0606, lo-key preaching in Spanish, music; also with LAH probably Brasil, and splash from 6000 RHC.

6010.1, Sept 16 at 0058 and 0532, Spanish signal from LVC; seems to be reliably on now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1791, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11670, Sept 15 at 0023, RHC Spanish is very strong but undermodulated (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CYPRUS [non]. 9955, Wed Sept 16 at 1304, Chopin piano music, 1310 ID as FG Radio, more music, orchestral; via WRMI. I really don`t understand what the point of Famagusta Gazette SW radio is. It started out as a weekly summary of news about Cyprus and all of Europe, but its paltry 15 minutes a week has lately been filled by music, literature readings, etc., which is nice but seemingly off-topic and evergreen (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 9710, Sept 17 at 0126, music // stronger and clear 9590 is atop RHC, the latter // 6060 in Spanish. These are CRI Spanish service, both via Kashgar. A few minutes later, RHC is overtaking 9710 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EGYPT. 9965.0, Sept 16 at 0100, R. Cairo, suptorted Arabic, and news theme music

9315.0, Sept 16 at 0103, R. Cairo “Spanish“ is dead air at ~S7

12070, Sept 16 at 0106, R. Cairo, JBA carrier at S2

11935, Sept 16 at 0106, R. Cairo, JBM music at S3. All these are generally weaker on Sept 17 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9935, Sept 17 at 0125, VOG is on tonight with usual whine atop the Greek music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA. 4750-, Sept 16 at 1200 music past hourtop, but 1201 sounds like Indonesian, variety of M&W voices, maybe woman is anchor in newscasts; 1209 mentions Indonesia; 1213 “Informasi“, 4-note jingle; past 1216. So RRI Makassar is reactivated as reported by Ron Howard a few days ago.

Problem with 4750 is that China and Bangladesh are also on it; however, I`m getting only one station now, and during previous activity, Makassar would typically be the best or only signal. And this one is slightly on lo side, as measured by Thomas Nilsson on 4749.95; 4749.947 by Wolfgang Büschel. Atsunori Ishida says it was last heard on May 15, 2014, except for some rare unID signals. Also a much weaker JBA carrier on 4870-, presumably Wamena; and even weaker JBACs on 3905, 3325, 9526-, possibly the rest of the RRIs (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1791, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 720, Sept 17 at 0144, string of federal PSAs: Senado; 20 Setiembre is día nacional de donación de órganos, the theme of coming Sunday`s `La Hora Nacional` at 10 pm; and one for Conagua; 0145 to music, all over WGN Chicago. Either XEDE Saltillo or XEJCC Juárez — more about the latter in my NM trip log upcoming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEWFOUNDLAND. 2598-USB, Sept 17 at 0118, YL robot with weather in English, very poor. Per starting at 0107 is VCM in St. Anthony, at the northern tip (which I really enjoyed visiting many summers ago); 2598 is time-shared with five other N&L and one nearby QC marine weather station. Nothing heard from closer NS net 2749-USB at the moment (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA [non]. 9690- & 7255-, Sept 15 at 0603, no signals audible from V of Nigeria Hausa service; it`s irregular but may also have been propped out, as nothing on 31m except 9395 & 9955 WRMI, 9885 VOA French, which is Greenville at 0600-0630 M-F (but Botswana at 0530-0600) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6850.43-AM, Sept 17 at 0101 something here; 0109 playing “You`re 16, you`re beautiful and you`re mine“, S7; gone at 0120 recheck. This was the tipped 70s music show from The Crystal Ship relay. More logs here:,23467.0.html

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950.00-USB, Sept 17 at 0134, rock song at S8-9, heavy guitar, 0135 segué. At 0151 more hard rock and a bit stronger at S9+. It`s XLR8 per this thread:,23470.0.html

** NORTH AMERICA. 6873.42-AM, weak S4 signal at 0136 Sept 17, “shortwave“ something with music like Looney Tunes; by 0152 drifted up to 6873.52, very poor music, but 0153 make out a “Shortwave Ghost“ ID, this time accompanied by “Ghost Riders in the Sky“, one of my favorite tunes, at S4-5. More logs of it:,23474.0.html

** NORTH AMERICA. 6770, Sept 17 at 0154, oldtimeradio pirate is as usual very poor but detectable, while three other stronger pirates have just been logged further up (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OMAN. 9740.0, Sept 16 at 0102, S8 carrier, JBM? Presumably RSO, not on 9500 as supposed to be during this bihour.

9540, Sept 17 at 0128, Qur`an with humming (does Allah allow that?), S7-S9, better than 9535 RHC which is not audibly spurring tonight; 0130 announcement in Arabic. Presumed RSO on the frequency not scheduled until 0200; not on 9500 or 9740, the other alternates during this bihour, let alone 15140 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, Sept 16 at 0056, JBA carrier from R. Chaski but missed its cutoff, no longer there by 0105. I`m tracking it again Sept 17 at 0057, JBA carrier, with sharp cutoff at 0104:36*; from which I will no doubt compute further autotimer slippages of ~6 seconds per 24 hours (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 1521.0, Sept 16 at 0120, JBA carrier no doubt from 2 megawatt BSKSA Duba, making 1.0 kHz het with KOKC OKC; also weaker but still detectable Sept 17 at 0142 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SRI LANKA. 11905, Sept 16 at 0114, SLBC JBA carrier has just come on; same theme prélude as always starts at 0114:45.5; 2+1 mis-timesignal ends at 0115:16 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 2660.0-AM, Sept 16 at 0117, music at very poor level, presumed 2 x 1330 KGLD Tyler TX; also 24 hours later Sept 17. If only the noise level would abate (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17895, Sept 14 at 1707, VOA news in like a local from Greenville off the back from Africa beam, `International Edition` to 1730 (Glenn Hauser, caradio west of Clayton NM on US 56, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1790 monitoring: confirmed Thursday Sept 10 after 2100 on WRMI 7570; still on the WBCQ 7490 online schedule at the same time, but AFAIK was canceled months ago, and now only a JBA carrier from it (Glenn Hauser, TX Panhandle, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

WBCQ confirmed the new WOR airing to be UT Fridays at 0100 on 9330v-CUSB. However, on Sept 11, that transmitter was off the air before and after 0100. WOR remains on the schedule at this new time, so from Sept 18, we hope with WOR 1791 (Glenn Hauser, I-40 between Tucumcari & Santa Rosa NM, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 9330 back on the air UT Tue Sept 15 at 0000 going from WBCQ IS to Blalock in progress (Glenn Hauser, west of Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

WOR 1790 confirmed Friday Sept 11 at 2130 on WRMI 7570 & 15770; also at 2330 on 5850 (Glenn Hauser, I-40 east of Albuquerque NM, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

WOR barely audible on WAORCR, 1860-AM UT Sunday Sept 13 at 0320 (Glenn Hauser, Taos NM, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

WOR 1790 confirmed, Sunday Sept 13 after 2300 on WRMI 11580 (Glenn Hauser, between Santa Fe & Pecos NM on I-25, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

WOR not confirmed on Area 51 via WBCQ 5110v-CUSB; barely audible between 0300 and 0400 UT Monday Sept 14, but sounds like Johnny Lightning ran at least an hour overtime; confirmed as such by Larry Will; and we were also missed last week. Let`s keep trying.

WOR 1790 confirmed UT Mon Sept 14 at 0330 on WRMI 9955 (Glenn Hauser, Las Vegas NM, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

WOR 1790 confirmed Wed Sept 16 at 1315 on WRMI 9955, sufficient, no jamming. Also confirmed on WBCQ 7490 webcast, Wed Sept 16 at 2100 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Full WOR schedule:

** U S A. 7490, UT Tue Sept 15 at 0037, an `Allan Weiner Worldwide` playback from Sept 5 (not 12, I think), when it was 4 days before WBCQ`s 17th anniversary. Instead of the `Rabbi Yaakov Spivak` hour as on schedule (Glenn Hauser, west of Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12105, Sept 10 at 2025, open carrier/dead air and still so at 2117; and 0003 UT Sept 11 from WTWW-3 (Glenn Hauser, TX panhandle, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 12105, Sept 11 at 1701 check, open carrier/dead air from WTWW-3 (Glenn Hauser, NM, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5090.2, Sept 16 at 0052, spur carrier in the sideband of fundamental bigsig on 5085 from WTWW-3, which is dead air; 0053 starts rockmusic (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 6220.0, Sept 16 at 0104, JBA carrier at S5 with music, while 8820 carrier is only S2; i.e. the plus/minus 1300 kHz WNQM parasites to 7520 WWCR, while WNQM is relaying WMDB 880 Nashville, as previously discovered. Also audible about the same 24 hours later, Sept 17 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 11635, Sept 15 at 0559 check, WHRI is still here with ID, not moved to anticipated 9825 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9975, Sept 16 at 0100, still at 0125, no signal from KVOH! Nor at 0124 check Sept 17. Meanwhile, Ray Robinson told me why, Sept 16 at 2056 UT, but for how long?

“KVOH Maintenance — Hi, Glenn. Just letting you know that KVOH’s evening English language programming on 9975 kHz is currently off-air for transmitter maintenance. We are waiting for parts that have to be shipped across country. Our daytime Spanish-language transmissions on 17775 kHz are not impacted, and are continuing as normal. Our English programming will also continue, 0000-0800 UTC on our webstream at (plays in WinAmp and other webstream players), on TuneIn, vTuner, and various Internet Radio platforms. We expect the transmitter repairs to be completed by early next week.
Ray Robinson, Vice President, Operations, Strategic Communications Group – Voice of Hope, Los Angeles and Lusaka, “ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Final, Final for Global 24 Radio? I had kept Jeff Demers on my notification list for World of Radios, but it just bounced on UT Sept 17, as their website has finally expired,
“NOTICE: This domain name expired on 9/6/2015 and is pending renewal or deletion“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 750, Sept 15 at 0614 UT, Spanish music, 0616 UT “Univisión América, 750 AM“ ID, hardly any WSB at the moment. KAMA El Paso TX, but no longer dominating WSB routinely at night, so maybe adjusted pattern/power some time ago (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 810, Sept 16 at 0122* UT tune-in to “Tequila“ song and abruptly cut off; was good signal. Strongly suspect KSWV Santa Fé NM, dropping from 5000 to 10 watts U1 a bit later than official September sundown of 0115 UT. More about KSWV in my trip log pending (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 830, Sept 16 at 0122 UT, “830 AM, La Fabulosa“, with ad in dólares for an evento. Dominant signal; forget WCCO. Presumably WFNO, Norco LA, which in 2015 NRC AM Log is still listed as “La Caliente“. Wikipedia explica:

“As of May 2015, WFNO, formerly known as “La Caliente 830am,” was acquired from Sunburst Media by Crocodile Broadcasting, owners of KGLA La Tropical 1540AM-105.7FM, and rebranded it with its original name “La Fabulosa 830”. It is a Spanish speaking formatted radio station serving the New Orleans, Louisiana area. The station is now owned by Crocodile Broadcasting, of Louisiana, and broadcasts at 830 kHz with 5000 watts of daytime and 750 watts of nighttime power from Norco, Louisiana.“

Also at 0058 UT September 17 with Telemundo ad, phone numbers, upbeat music, no ToH ID heard, and hard to get any local New Orleans references; 0106 UT “Éxito tras éxito — la Fabulosa 8-30“; 0142 UT still owning 830 on the NRD-545 with either antenna; finally at 0150 UT, WCCO starts to show with baseball talk in English. Maybe by then WFNO had finally cut from 5000 watts day power to 750 watts night, long after official Sept sunset of 0000 UT; address in Metairie (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1080, Sept 15 at 0621 UT, KRLD`s `Texas Overnight` far-right talk show with considerable CCI and fast SAH from music station, presumed still KYMN Northfield MN, with 1 kW day power ND instead of 11 watts night (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

CPs fully licensed and on the air:
1480 KBXD TX Dallas – CP for U4 50000/1900 is now fully licensed and
“on the air,” although the station is still listed by the FCC as silent (David Yocis, AM Switch, NRC DX News Sept 21 via DXLD)

I don`t think so: when previously active, caused big CCI and SAH to KQAM Wichita, but I am getting none of that from KBXD direxion Sept 16 at 0028 UT check, which is just before official sunset 0030 in Sept (after which it should still be audible). Just KQAM heard now with Savage diatribe, local Wichita ads at 0031 UT. However, with KQAM nulled (not suitable for KBXD) I am getting a LAH from something.

Almost 24 hours later, at 0021 UT Sept 17, same situation, KQAM dominant, no sign of KBXD. But must also check earlier, and around official KBXD sunrise 1215 UT too. Maybe it will really be on soon, with what format? (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1520, Sept 16 at 0549 UT, sports talk causing heavy CCI and SAH to poor KOKC, from NNE/SSW, i.e. KOLM Rochester MN, 10000/800 watts U8, as often out of whack (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 3333-USB, Sept 16 at 0545, “puta madre“ 2-way in colloquial Spanish, barely far enough from CHU (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6165, Sept 16 at 1220, Asian song, fast SAH, 1227 announcement, 1230 no timesignal, change music; still at 1254 with more CCI. Would like to think it`s Thazin Radio, Myanmar, but CNR6 is also here from Beijing site, China. Probably these two; if I could hear enough talk, Burmese has a very distinctive sound. However, Aoki reminds us that two other Asians are also on 6165 evenings: Vietnam and India! But neither of them allegedly starts until 1230 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1791, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

NEW MEXICO TRIP LOG. Sept 10-15, I made a whirlwind tour of north/eastern NM, my old stomping grounds which I had not visited for about 4 years. Lots to report about AM and FM radio in NM and some neighboring states/estados, as soon as I can get it all compiled. This time off has also delayed completion of DX Listening Digest 15-37 and probably 15-38 (gh)

This report despatched at 0440 UT September 17
