WORLD OF RADIO SCHEDULES
ALAN ROE`S HITLIST of Station websites
B17 frequency/transmission schedules
many different formats and sources
linked from WOR homepage, look for B17:
** CUBA. 6100, UT Thu Jan 4 at 0630, RHC English with mailbag, good modulation for a change, and almost as good on 6000, 6060, better than 6165. Something`s almost right at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 15508, 15439 approx., Jan 4 at 1552, RHC filthy distorted spurblobs out of 15370; I try listening in FM mode on R75, and modulation becomes more readable, in fact talk not distorted, but still accompanied by whine and crackle. But 15370 itself must be heard in AM mode only. Modulation stops on all at 1553 and all cut off air in mid-word at 1554*; much weaker // 15230-AM is still on at 1555 with JBM talk. But I`m too late today to log the rest of the spurs. Nominal close down for these is 1600. Why not let 15370 and its satellites continue until then? Somethings`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KOREA SOUTH. 4885, Jan 4 at 1500, Echo of Hope still S9-S7 with music, 1503 three widely-spaced gongs, signifying what? Then Korean YL talk (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1911 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday January 3 at 2200 on WBCQ, 7489.907v-CUSB, VG S9+10/20. Barely confirmed UT Thu Jan 4 at 0030 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB.
Also heard by chance starting at 1510 Thu Jan 4 on WBCQ 9330.127v-CUSB, good; one of random(?) airings during the 24/7 9330 test(?). Next:

** U S A. 9330.13-CUSB approx., Jan 3 at 2201, WBCQ 24/7 tests now here with music. Dips to JBA at 0030 Jan 4 during WOR.
9330.127-CUSB, Jan 4 at 1508, rock music from WBCQ, and just as I finish measuring frequency, WORLD OF RADIO 1911 playback starts at 1510! As if they knew I had just tuned in. Followed at 1543 by an `Allan Weiner Worldwide` playback with William Tell Overture theme, initial interjexion “oh, shit“; and opening one I have heard before, about “nothing working, transmitters or mikes“; Scott et al. are in the background as only one mike is available, the old mixer having failed. I wonder if there is any scheduling to these shows on 9330 or just played at random? Assume not all the music is from WBCQ-FM which is country, since some of it is rock (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9395 & 9455, Jan 4 at 1558, these WRMI`s are // in Oldies music, not `The Power Hour`. Yes, now the WRMI skedgrid shows the morning playbacks of the 2-hour Power “Hour“ take only two hours instead of three, at 13-15, and on 9395 & 7780; while 9455 now duplicates 9955 at 11-15. Latest sked also shows 9455//9955 with System B at 02-03, 0430-05 and 22-23 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5890, Jan 4 at 1506, surprised to find the BS disservice of WWCR still on night frequency, not 9980. And 5890 is holding up well at S9+20/30 altho 9980 would be even stronger. Recheck 1557 still on 5890 past 1600 with no ID, but 1601 Overcomer interrupts for its standard robot announcement about no more radio broadcasts as of January 1, just this webcast. Well, somestations just won`t let go of the OverMoleStair! (meanwhile, WWCR 7490 is QSYing to 12160 by 1600). Next check at 1738, 5890 *still* on, not 9980. Current schedule shows 5890 WWCR-4 is supposed to change to 9980 at 1300. Oversight, or experimenting with how well 50m will hold up past winter noon? So far, well enough at this 1-megameter distance, S9+10/20.
9370, WWRB is also still carrying TOM, slightly out of sync with WWCR, at 1506 January 4. And I have just received this Jan 4 message from Dave Frantz, not mentioning Overcomer:
“Hi Glen[n], Just to let you Know that WWRB is being operated as a hobby shortwave station. In the near future, we will cut our airtime rates to $25.00 per hour, 100 kW power. This is the dead cost to operate WWRB shortwave. ONLY one hour time slots sold, no half hours!
The programming will be religious in nature, plus music programming in most any form. No gold dealers or save-America patriot programming. Political programming must have a religious content bringing our listeners to Christ. NO commercial programming!
Our main focus is Aviation and in the process of building another
aircraft runway. We have removed some towers to make room for the new runway. The runway is laid out and under construction.
We will keep 3.215 and & 3.185 and 9.370 MHz as these frequencies are prime well established listeners base.
These frequencies plus the 100,000 watt power full AM will make sure that broadcasters will be heard and not waste money trying to be heard under the static/fading. They will booom out with 100,000 watts! plus the prime frequencies!
Our web site will be revised at http://www.wwrb.org in the next few weeks as I am very busy with the runway and one of our airplanes is having a new engine installed. Regards to you“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 17774.888, Jan 4 at 1549, KVOH is S9 but JBM with music; yet amounts to the SSOB by far (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
