Glenn Hauser logs August 4-5, 2016

** AUSTRALIA. 17840, Aug 5 at 0018, and weaker 15240, RA is back on the air after missing yesterday; discussion of Romeo & Juliet (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** AUSTRALIA [non]. 9265, UT Fri Aug 5 at 0300 sharp, WINB starts new weekly program from Unique Radio. Aussie Tim Gaynor spends the hour talking about his own 3210 station (80 watts PEP), acknowledging reception reports for that going back to March, many of them using web SDRs as close as Brisbane. Including: David Martin, Mauno Ritola, Ian Baxter, Bryan Clark, Bruce Churchill, Ian Wells. Alternates with pop tunes from the 60s and 70s, frequent IDs for WINB. Started listening on 9265, fair with deep fades, so I confess to switching to the steady WINB webcast for the rest of it after a few minutes.

Over at 0400, WINB signs off 9265, talking over our National Anthem, the “Star Spangled Banner“, which is equivalent to flag desecration; treating it like a station themesong (why not talk over: “Advance, Australia Fair“?) The webcast however continues with music, “Old Ruggèd Cross“, not to be confused with WJHR (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 1620, Aug 5 at 0050, Latin music into 8:50 TC, “La FM de Rebelde“ ID in passing, so not // 5025, 1180 which are in sports talk (during béisbol?). What is it about this AM X-band Rebelde outlet which would rather relay the FM network? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6060, Aug 5 at 0614: RHC English is S9 of open carrier/dead air here; 6165 is S9 and undermodulated; 6000 is S9+10 and this time undermodulated at about same % as 6165; but 6100 is VG S9+30 and well-modulated (and 5040 is off as usual after 0600). So RHC succeeds with ONE usable frequency out of five.

17730, Aug 5 at 1404, RHC music is distorted and splattering much like on most of its Spanish frequencies thruout the day, but this one is S9+30; // 15370 marginally better. So the two bigsigs on 16m are both defective: see USA: KVOH (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 9480, Aug 5 at 0454, checked just before sign-off, MWV is on tonight, after AWOL last night, and in correct language, too, English! With “Be Happy“ song, a theme of its, and a pleasant respite from the fire-and-brimstone so many gospel huxters vomit. S9 with deep fades (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7254.921, Aug 5 at 0609, VON with usual strong off-frequency carrier, S9+10, but now it`s unmodulated instead of Hausa hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OMAN. 15140, Aug 5 at 0021, very poor S1 signal with ME? music, presumed RSO on alternate frequency, as it`s not on 11650, neither supposed to be on air at this time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 7570, Aug 5 at 0037, I pause to force myself to listen to Brother Scare for a while via WRMI, since he is talking about an expedition to Boston, New York and Washington, asking for volunteers to book venues holding up to 500 psycophants. God has told him to visit those doomed cities, for long daytime meetings 3-7 hours. Other possible tour destinations mentioned: Detroit, New Orleans, Nashville, Atlanta, Philadelphia; probably not Los Angeles. “This nation and these cities are gonna die!!“ Of course, this could be an old playback as no dates mentioned, but I hadn`t heard of him ever venturing outside Walterboro, except possibly to jail for sexual misconduct; where was that? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7302-USB, Friday Aug 5 at 1328, USAF MARS net judging from some AF- callsigns, some good, some of them JBA, and shortly into digital blaaps, so enough of that. It seems I log this about once a year, the last being Nov 29, 2015 as in DXLD 15-48, with more detail.

Which do I say Friday? Because it could be significant, if not a daily net frequency. I wish others would specify day of week in logs when that could matter. In the near and far future, who`s going to know the day of week for a date without having to research it? However, Nov 29, 2015 was a Sunday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7455, Aug 5 at 0042, fast RTTY at S9, as usual here. Looking thru a compilation of July logs in the UDXF yg I find its identity thanks to Eduard Waters in South Australia: “07455: MAINE. CUTTLER NAVAL BASE ENCRYPTION STANAG 4481 RTTY (04Jul16) 705 (EW)“

Presumably means Cutler, station NAA. You won`t find Cutler indexed in a standard Rand McNally road atlas, but it`s in the SE corner, just down the coast from Eastport, population 200. I remain amazed that WYFR/WRMI was allowed to broadcast on 7455 all night for years while this RTTY clattered merrily away. Is RTTY still readable with a big AM signal in the middle of it? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1837 monitoring: confirmed Thursday August 4 at 2100 on WRMI, 13695, S9+20. Also confirmed Thu Aug 4 after 2330 on WBCQ, 9329.87-CUSB, poor. Next:

** U S A. 9930, Thu Aug 4 at 1907 on BST-1 caradio, DEAD AIR from WTWW-2 instead of Dave Ramsey talk show; still same at 1937 on R75, when I also check 12105, WTWW-3 and find it Bibling in Spanish, while 9475, WTWW-1 is nominal with SFAW in English. 9930 still DA at 2059-2100+, the normal sign-off time. IF any $$ are flowing for airtime, it must be a nightmare to sort out the refunds for failing to modulate a transmitter, or even turn it on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, Aug 5 at 1402, KVOH is already propagating at sign-on, S9+20 music, but distorted/overmodulated, and with BFO the carrier is shaking. Seems they need to warm it up for a while; by 1447 recheck, it`s cleared up (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1330.23, Aug 5 at 0053, carrier hetting 1330.0 stations; but no match around 1350 so can`t assume this is a spur from some 1340 outlet; maybe merely a 1330 off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
