Glenn Hauser logs May 7, 2016

** ALBANIA. 9854.983 approx., May 7 at 0124, R. Tirana IS at S6, but as often, it`s a strain to make out the lower modulation programming after 0130 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ARGENTINA. 11710.63, May 7 at 0119, RAE is S4 and JBM, unlike 24 hours ago, and .12 kHz higher. Today`s Aoki might have changed it but still shows 11710.5 as of May 6. It does vary from day to day (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 6180.04, May 7 at 0125, RNA is S9+30 and hasn`t disappeared again yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11635-11705, May 7 at 0121, this 11670 RHC transmitter is again splattering over a 70 kHz range; the others are not so bad. Audible listed victims are on 11640, IBB in Uighur via UAE; and on 11700, IBB in Pashto via Sri Lanka. Oh well, just yanquis. But anythings closer to 11670 are so blasted as to be undetectable (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9805, May 7 at 0151, multiple pulse jamming amounting to S4, way out of synch since R. Martí is on 9805 only at 10-13 UT — but you can`t be too careful if you`re totally paranoid about any contrary views getting into Cubrains (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EGYPT. 9315, May 7 at 0148, horrible motorboating roar, S9+10, during R. Cairo “Spanish“ service.

9965.15, May 7 at 0153, R. Cairo strong but JBM in Arabic, lite whine

12085.02, May 7 at 0205, R. Cairo with another big motorboat roar, but not as bad as 9315, during other Arabic service which just started, to last 5 hours (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9935, May 7 at 0152, ERA/VOG Greek music is still OK with no whine, so must be the new normal! Let`s hope so. // stronger 9420 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR [non]. 9665-, May 7 at 0123, nothing but Brazuguese audible, MWV still AWOL. This time I also check for the next broadcast, 6190 from 0200 in Spanish, and it too is totally absent. Is anyone hearing any of the scheduled MWV transmissions? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6876.02-AM, May 7 at 0110, pirate music; 0132, it`s S9, instrumental music, pause and “You are listening to The Crystal Ship“, then faux-commercial for a dating website, with lots of farm-animalistic SFX, hee hee. At least I hope it`s faux. 0135 another plug for (during which my streetlite ignites with an RF noise burst at *0135:44, clear sky after sunset). 0137 another TCS ID. Still going at 0211 with music at S9, vs noise level (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1470, May 7 at 0202 UT, ad for Best Western Kirkwood Inn (St Louis suburb) whence you may visit the St Louis Zoo and other attraxions. There are no 1470s near St Louis, but a hotel would not be advertising locally anyway, rather not too close but not too far, then something in Ferguson. It soon fades, but I deduce this could be the St Louis Cardinals network, on which the only 1470 listed state by state at
is KGND, Vinita, which is now one of OK`s Sports Animals, 500/88 watts U1, and this is after sunset. There is a broadcast game tonight from 0015 UT vs Pittsburgh (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1520, May 7 at 0201 UT, KOKC with CBS News, huge signal as if they are finally back on 50 kW maybe even ND if not direxional westward, instead of longtime STA of paltry 12 kW ND, which they had even before a tornado broke one of their towers a year or two ago. Can it be??? (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, May 7 at 0104, no signal from R. Chaski, so have they reset the timer earlier already, or is it just off tonight? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SRI LANKA. 11905, May 7 at 0114:20, carrier is on from SLBC but JBA; yet enough to detect the mis-timesignal ending at 0115:17.5 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7425, May 7 at 0207, no leapfrog mixing product from Greenville, tho its co-conspirators, 7305 Vatican relay, and 7365 Radio Martí are on at usual strength. This anomaly has been observed before, perhaps attributable to some temporary change in parameters, like a substitute transmitter and/or antenna for one of them, incapable of providing the usual intermodulation. I bet it come back henceforth (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3250.08-AM, UT Sat May 7 at 0103, WBCQ`s new transmitter is on again, during `Allan Weiner Worldwide` (as he announced earlier, tnx to tip from John Carver). It`s very poor here in summer noise level, exactly the wrong season to initiate it, but it should be all set for winter. Allan had said he would get it operational once he returned to Maine, which he now has, but not feeling well with the flu; GWQ.

I find 3250+ to be // and almost synched with 7489.95-AM. Also check 5129.91-AM but it`s playing music instead (and 9330 is as usual off after 0100). In this third semihour of show, he`s responding to real-time e-mail including reception reports, and someone said 5130 had been on 30 second delay behind the others, which was due to running thru Larry Will`s Area 51 server.

Allan fiddles with computers and at 0108:15, gets “5110“ back in // and synchronized with him on “7490“. An hour earlier I had tried both WBCQ video feeds but neither would connect, just displaying the WBCQ logo, and now he confirms he`s not doing any video this week. Says he is endorsing Trump since “we need a change“, altho there are a few things he likes about Hillary.

By next check 0136, 7490, 3250 and 5130 are all running TOM but unsounding like BS himself. At 0142 I am getting a het from 3251.6, like a previous occasion, and suspect it`s coming out of the same transmitter, rather than something local here or external. Anyhow, by 0210, 3250.08 and 3251.6 are both off as is 5130, leaving nothing but BS on 7490 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, May 7 at 0152, WRMI with AWR Wavescan ending JSWC log report with one as recent as March 30, so must be current show, then plugging for its own QSL (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5050, May 7 at 0130 check, WWRB is off, no Pirates` Cove. All other possible WWRB frequencies registered by FCC with HFCC are also off: 3185, 3195, 3215 [rather: WWCR], 9370 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9975, May 7 at 0153, KVOH still AWOL (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1550, May 7 at 0159 UT, KUAZ Tucson ID, and ad, er, underwriting announcement for the Arizona Inn from 50 kW ND public radio daytimer. Its SR/SS for May are: 1230 UT/0215 UT; June: 1215 UT/0230 UT. Soon losing out to KDCC, and feared it was sign-off time already (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1550, May 7 at 0159 UT, just after hearing KUAZ, twist the DX-398 a bit and get a Fox Sports Radio personality promo for local station, and ID as 1550 AM, KDCC, Dodge City, Kansas, 0200 UT into Fox News. KDCC is 1000/90 watts U3, same westward pattern day and night, supposedly protecting the other KS and OK 1550s, but sure doesn`t sound like it now, and BTW, official sunset in May was 0145 UT (June & July: 0200 UT) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1700, May 7 at 0157 UT, horrible roar QRMing KKLF, but I do make out an English ID for it underneath from Dallas-Fort Worth amid Tejana music (music is feminine, so can`t be “tejano“, unless your Spanish is really illiterate). I also noted this a few nights ago; first feared it was from some local device, but this is no weaker or stronger when I take the PL-880 out into the yard and street, and to boot, it nulls at the same direxion as KKLF. Totally out-of-whack transmitter? Is anyone else hearing this? Not a KKLF CE, apparently (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** YEMEN [non]. 11860, May 7 at 0113, very poor S3 signal, but I do believe it`s in Arabic, i.e. Republic of Yemen Radio clandestine, not a time I usually hear it tho I can often detect a carrier.

Latest ROYR sked from Ivo Ivanov as of April 30:
0600-0900 on 11860 JED 050 kW / non-dir to N/ME Arabic
0900-1800 on 11860 unknown tx / unknown to N/ME Arabic
1800-2300 on 11860 JED 050 kW / non-dir to N/ME Arabic
2300-0600 on 11860 unknown tx / unknown to N/ME Arabic

HFCC shows the only competition for 11860 in A16 are: 0130-0230 CRI Nepali via Kunming; 0300-0900 CNR Chinese via Lhasa; and, clearly imaginary: RRI Jakarta at 17-18 in English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6131, May 7 at 0126, very hi speed RTTY at S9, INTRUDING (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7448-USB, May 7 at 0208, 2-way in Spanish including whistling, engine noise, something about “don`t chew the bone“, a coded message? I hesitate to label these intruders, since it`s really all the US broadcasters which are intruding into the 7300+ kHz fixed band (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 0509 UT May 7
