Glenn Hauser logs December 24-25, 2017

** ALASKA. 7560, Dec 24 at 1403, KNLS fair in Chinese, except for an Anglic “Merry Christmas“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BIAFRA [non]. 11530, Dec 24 at 1903, WRMI not on today for R. Biafra; unchecked whether R. Herwa materialized at 1930 like yesterday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ARGENTINA [non]. 11580, Dec 24 at 1425, WRMI with gospel huxter in English. Mon-Sat this is now off at 1400*, no more RAE relay in Spanish, so evidently that was an unpaid bonus broadcast no longer affordable, and RAE was always reluctant even to acknowledge its existence. Make do with 5950 at 22-23 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11854.9, Dec 25 at 0052, R. Aparecida is missing. Normally it`s quite stronger than 25m ZY companions 11815 and 11934.9 which are still JB audible (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15508, 15439, 15300, 15231, 15161, 15092 approx., Dec 24 at 1433, extremely distorted filthy spurblobs out of 15370 RHC transmitter at about 69 kHz intervals, including one almost upon another real RHC frequency, 15230! And woe betide any innocent bystations. `En Contacto` starts about 1435; if Arnie were listening to his own broadcast at local range, he might notice these; why depend on me for technical monitoring?? Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GERMANY [and non]. None of the Gruss an Bord, NDR Xmas special frequencies after 1900 Dec 24 were more than JBA carriers here. Checking the second set after 2100, at 2134: 5930 poor, 6155 JBAC, 9590 poor, 9650 very poor, 9765 JBA carrier, and 9830 would have been best if it were not buried by the RTTY! At 2135, “Stille Nacht“ was being performed by choir and organ. Not the only poor frequency choice. Broadcasters simply don`t know or care about the RTTY on 9800, not doing their homework (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH. 11572-11573, Dec 24 at 1425, noise/buzz peaking about here, inexplicable other than as jamming vs VOA Korean 11570 via Saipan at 14-15 (also via Philippines 12-14); and the other day there was different jamming noise on the low side of 11570. Nothing at all is on 11575 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. Enid`s two Part 15 FM stations for Xmas sound and light shows are on again this year, visited around 0130 UT Dec 24: 89.5 for Singing Xmas Trees on the oil patch at the NE corner of Oak and Oakwood, including Chipmunx tune (Alvin!!); the residence on Pheasant Run on the west edge of Enid was dark last year, but on again now causing traffic jams on suburban streets, 97.7 also with familiar tunes including Mannheim Steamroller (who appear in persons in Enid almost every year, it seems). Both these are extremely limited range, with the lights carrying further, if unobstructed (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 9690, Dec 24 at 2136, REE with some holiday celebration, songs and chatter, VG here, while 15390 & 15500 are gone, if they were better earlier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1909 monitoring: At first not confirmed, UT Monday Dec 25 at 0030 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB: no signal while neighbors are: 9265 WINB S9+20; 9370 WWRB S9+5; 9395 WRMI S9+25; 7490 WBCQ S9+30; but at 0044 recheck, now I am there, JBA S4. Next:
Mon 0400v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0430 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Tue 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030 WRMI 11580 to NE, 9455 to WNW [or #1910?] Tue 2130 WRMI 9455 to WNW [or #1910?]

Full WOR schedule via all media, and podcast access:

** U S A. 9395, Sunday Dec 24 at 2139, surprised to encounter this WRMI carrying `Voice of the Report of the Week`, as host who never (?) names himself opines that goose meat is too fatty, and plays music request from some Soundcloud listener. The VORW hour shows up more and more, so expenses must not be a problem. WRMI skedgrid at
just shows Oldies during this hour. Maybe it`s considered a filler for a frequency-hour occupied weekdays by `The Power Hour` — but that change still does not show on the sked either. Yet I do spot something new:

9395, after RAE, at 0300-0400: R. Prague, R. Slovakia.

Jeff`s icon is often logged in to this googledocs spreadsheet but that doesn`t mean he is axually actively editing it; *still* has lots of green C blox for disgraced Brother Scare, even totally silenced frequencies 7570, 7780, 11825. Docs also displays animal icons for anonymous viewers, now llama, lemur and camel. Which one am I? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12105, Dec 24 at 0633, WTWW-3 is on again with Xmasmx at S7—S8, and repeated in less than a minute on very strong 5085 flanked by silent parasites; greeting from a canned ham in Oklahoma.

5085, Dec 24 at 1352, still on at odd hour, Ted with Xmas promo. At 1429, 12105 is off, 5085 still on and 5830 with SFAW still on.

12105, Dec 24 at 2138 is JBA, while 9930 is VG with Xmasmx

12105, Dec 25 at 0051, JBA carrier, while 5085 is blasting Xmasmx (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3215, Dec 25 at 0047, WWRB is S9+40 of dead air, maybe going to modulate its non-BS huxters? BS channel 3185 is not on, nor is 9370 which had been a few minutes earlier; in process of QSY? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VATICAN. 11625, Dec 24 at 2018, Bach at S9-S7 from Vatican News (ex-Radio) about to diffuse live Xmas eve mass, but 2021 starts in Italian before switching to scheduled Portuguese on this channel; still going at 2132 check.. Other three frequencies on lower bands JBA to JBA carriers, 9700, 7365, 5910 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VIETNAM [non!]. 7315, Dec 25 at 0039, WHRI is playing praise music in English, NOT VOV in Spanish. Holiday anomaly default, or relay canceled? VOV was 0000-0030 & 0100-0130 English, 0030-0100 & 0130-0200 Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9690, Dec 25 at 0041 past 0100, huge S9+35 open carrier, slight fades, in fact the SSOB, exceeding similar bigsigs from 9395 WRMI S9+30, 9455 S9+25. Seems must be intracontinental, VOA, WRMI or WHRI. At 0050, 9720 RHC is S9+25 but more fading. Surprisingly, CRI Albania 9570 is S9+25/10, while often it`s very weak, so could 9690 be European? Spain maybe left transmitter on after 2300? WRMI has used 9690 in the past too, and now plenty of spare transmitters (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
