Glenn Hauser logs March 11-12, 2016

** BOLIVIA. 6105.33, March 12 at 0121, not even a carrier from R. Panamericana, which I ought to be able to detect if on, despite the splash from 6115 WWCR. Other CPs are there, 5952.48 and 6134.82. Ralph Perry in IL says he hears it coming on around 1030 on 6105.34 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11925.22, March 12 at 0140, JBA carrier hetting something equally weak closer to 11925.0. Presumably the off-frequency one is reactivated R. Bandeirantes. Art Delibert in Maryland IDed it 23 hours earlier on 11925.19, parallel to 9645.40. As for the otherstation, before 0200 that would be CNR1, 100 kW, 286 degrees from Lingshi 725 site, per Aoki (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6165, March 12 at 0120, RHC English is instead dead air at S9+35; and so is 6000, DA at S9+40; the SS frequencies 6075 & 6060 are OK. By 0148 next check, 6000 & 6165 have resumed (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 7300, March 12 at 0131, music and Chinese announcement, poor at S9. It`s 100 kW southward from Kashi-Saibagh = Kashgar for CRI during this hour only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EGYPT. 9965.30, March 12 at 0135, R. Cairo is S9+5 with lite whine and JBM, but NO panoply of spur carriers. One can never assume any problem they have is permanently repaired (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KUWAIT [non]. 5960, March 12 at 0200, no signal; checking out a Pennsylvanian report that Arabic was here, presumed R. Kuwait — as still listed by HFCC as of last November, despite having quit SW a few years ago (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 90.1, March 12 about 0557 UT, KUCO Edmond goes to dead air amid overnight classical from WCPE, and still dead past 0626 UT. Fortunately it`s back by 1400 UT for `Performance Oklahoma` featuring the Oklahoma City Philharmonic — little known outside OK, no major recording contract? But achieving very high performance standards. This week: Mozart`s overture “Abduction from the Seraglio“; “The Butterfly Lovers Violin Concerto“ from China; and Berlioz` “Symphonie Fantastique“, interspersed with performer interviews by Kimberly Powell. Details:

PerfOkla features the Phil and other smaller classical groups, and I highly recommend it, proving this is not a cultural wasteland. During DST the times on KUCO are UT Thu 01-03, and Sat 13-15. Also on 88.7 KWTU Tulsa (with a mono webcast), UT Sun 01-03 after one more Standard repeat of this episode, 02-04 UT Sun March 13 (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU [and non]. 5980, March 12 at 0107, two very weak carriers beating from slightly different frequencies. I expect R. Chaski to cut off, somewhat after 0109, and it seems this happen circa 0109:11.5, but it`s not sharp, as there is also propagational/Doppler fading. If that is the time, it`s 41 seconds later than last check eight nights ago, March 4 until 0108:30.5*, which would average 5.125 later per. Later before 0130 March 12, it`s clear there is only one carrier left, BBC/UAE. We`re looking forward to the new schedules in a biweek, when BBC as usual moves somewhere else in the A-seasons, leaving 5980 at this time only to Chaski (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7425, March 12 at 0131, intermodulation leapfrog at Greenville is already on, S8 with // R. Martí audio weak from 7365 transmitter; since the other carrier, 7305 at S9+40 is already on prior to Vatican Radio relay from 0145. RM audio can also be detected bleeding into 7305 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1816 monitoring: confirmed on BST-1 caradio, Friday March 11 at 2130, good on WRMI 15770; from 2130.5, very good on WRMI 13695. Also confirmed on the R75 UT Saturday March 12 at 0030 fair S4 via WBCQ, 9329.955-CUSB. Next:

** U S A. 7489.87, UT Sat March 12 after 0111, I`m listening to `Allan Weiner Worldwide` on WBCQ and 30 seconds later on 5129.74. He`s back with a live show from “Studio 9 in Florida“, after a week off. AW allows phone calls to interrupt his main subject this week, reminiscing about TV and radio stations he visited as a young man, e.g. NBC in Rockefeller Center, WHOU in Houlton. Admits show is supposed to be one hour, but always runs over and Brother Scare doesn`t mind.

At 0112, J. P. (Ferraro near NYC) says 7490 must be off the air as he can`t hear it. Allan says it is on, must be skipping over J. P. At 0117, George (Thurman) in Houston calls about the Trump riot in Chicago, so AW turns on Fox `News` and sees it too, shortly issues prayer that everyone will be OK. Recheck at 0234, still going on 7489.900 and 5129.734, reading texts as AW promises to respond to all mail during the program; 0235 one from Dr Elliott enjoying his narrative about early color TV. Eventually closes, and 5130v stays on with fill music until 0300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, March 12 at 0616, surprised to hear Art Bell hosting `Midnight [sic] in the Desert`, indicating he likes Trump. Not clear whether this is an oldie or a newie, but where`s Heather Wade? Main topic on website for March 11 is Can you outrun a supervolcano? Also takes call from someone listening on WTWW with an SDR rather than a C Crane radio, oops (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6900-LSB, March 12 at 0116, 2-way in Spanish mentions Ciudad del Carmen, Campeche more than once, probably location of one of the Mexican communicators. Nothing much now from N American pirates, except a weak unID AM signal just above 6925 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
