Glenn Hauser logs September 24-25, 2016

** BOTSWANA. 15620, Sept 24 at 1640, S2 with heavy Doppler flutter, on listed VOA Somali via Botswana during this hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11530, Sept 24 at 1655, S9+25 silent carrier, WRMI testing? NO, frequency is shared with Cuban spy numbers, which are underway at 1658 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GERMANY [and non]. 17570, Sept 24 at 1645, unID language with tone/carrier jammer from about 17572.5, so likely Amharic? No, Somali from AWR via Nauen is scheduled now, Amharic not until 1700. Clear by tuning LSB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 6145, Sept 25 at 0025, The Mighty KBC via Nauen, GERMANY, is only one hour this week, but Kraig Krist`s Forgotten Song is still included now during The Giant Jukebox, “Where`s the Love“ from 1972. S9+25 on the meter but not enough to overcome the nearby storm noise. 0030 also included is Kim Elliott`s beepy MFSK32 item for 1:27 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6935-USB, Sept 25 at 0011, torch song at S9+15, typical bigsig of Wolverine Radio, I bet this is, mightier than the Farty KBC on 6145; 0032 “Born to Be Wild“; 0046 “Take a Walk on the Wild Side“, so “Wild“ must be tonight`s theme, and finally Wolverine Radio ID caught at 0052. No other pirates audible tonight (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 13710.02, Sept 24 at 1648, dead air at S9, soon undead after pregnant pause during Qur`an, then into other talk, from BSKSA. Slight Doppler flutter on this, less than 15620 Botswana (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UGANDA [non]. 15240, Sat Sept 24 at 1635, JBA carrier vs noise level of S3, presumed still WWRB carrying R. Munansi. Neighbor WWCR 15825 also JBA in poor propagation (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also USA: WWRB

** U K [non]. 17640, Sat Sept 24 at 1643, BBCWS is S6 with coverage of some silly ballgame involving “goals“ and “Manchester United“, squandering its resources on totally useless nonsense. Also on 17830 around S4; both ASCENSION, 114 and 85 degrees respectively (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1844 monitoring: For the Saturday Sept 24 at 1430 airing on Hamburger Lokalradio, 7265-CUSB, I tune in UTwente early at 1426 and hear myself giving the propagation outlook at the end of Media Network Plus, completely readable reception. Some music, and 1429 HLR outro MN+, but then cuts off the air! Before WOR can begin. Recheck 1445, still off. What`s going on? This is hardly the first time WOR has not aired properly on HLR: Ivo Ivanov reports on the previous Saturday, Sept 17:
“World of Radio, later started and cut off the program at 0700 UTC
0638-0700 on 6190 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg to CeEu English Sat CUSB“

WOR 1844 confirmed on WBCQ, 9330.092, Sat Sept 24 after 2230, S9.
Also confirmed on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO, UT Sun Sept 25 at 0329 midpoint recognizably vs nearby storm noise, so started on time circa 0315. Next:

** U S A. (7490), Sat Sept 24 at 2200 it`s convenient for me to bring up the WBCQ webcast to hear what J. P. Ferraro on `Shortwave Saturday Night` has to say about his new schedule. Converted to UT, it`s 22-23 on 7490, 23-24 on 7490 & 3250, 00-01 on 3250 only (at 0007 Sept 25 here, 3250 is but a JBA carrier in storm noise level.) Makes way for:

7490.05, UT Sunday Sept 25 at 0007, new WBCQ program `Mike & Cathy` is underway, talking about Tiger Woods, not of interest to me. Has lots of embedded commercials. Recheck at 0041, now with Freeway Auto Center ad for a car meet coming up Saturday September 12 (?? This year, Sept 12 was a Monday; leaping back to 2015, it was Sat). Other ads, then promotion for originating station, KCAA 1050 AM, “Inland Empire“, superlatives such as “unique, interesting, quirky“, “with FM sound quality on AM“, “The station that leaves no listener behind, Loma Linda“. Call-in phone is 888-909-1050. Next topic: the 40 pastors. They say this is their very first show, so dug out of the archives, or just now starting on KCAA too? This 00-01 UT Sunday show has bumped J. P. off his three-hour span on WBCQ; see separate log (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5050, Sept 25 at 0034, WWRB with gospel huxter, and somewhat softer crosstalk underneath, which seems to be about airplanes, perhaps a pilot-training session Dave would have on hand. Crosstalk stops at 0036. Wolfgang Büschel was hearing it again an hour later:

“5049.993, WWRB faulty feed line? Heard mixture of two English language programs here in southern Germany. 0137 UT Sept 25 (wb df5sx, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews Sept 25)“

Hey, it`s been a long time since we heard a protracted, or any Dave-rant; has anyone? Seems to have settled in to only two broadcast periods, roughly 00-02 UT Sun/Mon/Tue on 5050 with various gospel huxters, and Munansi 16-19 Sat & Sun on 15240 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13818.0-USB, Sept 24 at 1651, Spanish 2-way INTRUDERS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 0346 UT September 25
