Glenn Hauser logs September 20-21, 2015

** BRAZIL. 9645+, Sept 21 at 0545, just as I tune in R. Bandeirantes, an accurate 5(?)-pip timesignal fires mixed with talk –- do they always mark the quarter-hours?; poor-fair and as usual off to the hi side, compared e.g. to 11645 Vatican Dabanga (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11935-, Sept 21 at 0553, poor signal in Brazuguese, slightly on lo side compared to 5935 WWCR. This RB2 frequency not logged in a long time, even circa 01 UT, so was inactive? RB2 also running on weaker 9725-, which is even more off-frequency to its lo side, compared to 11725 RNZI. Both relaying R. Aparecida as usual, with Catholic liturgy since furthermore // 11855+ which has a stronger signal on 25m. The 11815 & 11765 Brazilians are also audible in this  nightmiddle (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11780, Sept 21 at 0554, RNA/RNB modulation is quite distorted, even suptorted, during `Madrugada Nacional`; wide signal but still no 35-kHz spurs audible (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EAST TURKISTAN [and non?]. 13855, Sept 21 at 1347, Chinese with repeated hets-downward, 16 times per minute at exactly same pitch range — some new kind of jamming? Victim is not a USG station, but CRI Chinese via Kashgar, during this hour only. The sweeps are fading independently of the CRI, so apparently not same transmitter at fault. With BFO the falling-pitch hets seem to be coming from the lo side, i.e. sweeping upward if the frequency is actually VFO, rather than just modulated tones on a co-channel carrier; too weak to be sure which (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. Re KWPN log: the correct website for Capitol Hill district of south OKC is:
(Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOMALILAND. 7120-, Sept 21 at 1355, JBA carrier, slightly on the lo side as characteristic for R. Hargeisa, compared to 1120 KETU at least; CW QRhaM. Usual trace of long-path propagation, which ought to have quit circa 1400 for its one-hour break (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 9370, Sept 21 at 0546, WWRB day frequency is on again on in the nightmiddle with Brother Scare, but poor with fadeouts. 3185 is *not* on; nor is 5050 which normally closes earlier anyway. Even the 50m Tennesseans are poor to very poor now: 5830, 5890, 5935. 3185 WWRBS also missing the next morning circa 1200 when it normally still propagates (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1791 monitoring: confirmed Sunday September 20 at 2300 on WRMI 11580, good. Also confirmed UT Monday Sept 21 from 0300 sharp on Area 51 via WBCQ 5109.7-CUSB (no Johnny Lightning to run over this week); also confirmed UT Monday Sept 21 at 0330 on WRMI 9955, sufficient but with pulse jamming: tnx a lot, Arnie! Next:
Tue 1100   WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 1315   WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 2100   WBCQ 7490v to WSW

** U S A. 1060.0, Sept 21 at 1209 UT, continuous ranchera music segués, no announcements to 1222 UT, unless one occurred during 1213 UT fade. Loops WSW/ENE, no QRM. We know it`s not KIJN Farwell TX, which was religion, off-frequency, and confirmed last week as silent while close by in NM and TX.

That leaves KXPL El Paso TX, 10 kW daytimer, 500-watt PSRA, per NRC AM Log 2015, as “SS:NWS/TLK — 0800 ET-LSS — `Radio El Paso-Juárez, con su música“`, rather contradicting the initial format info (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
