Glenn Hauser logs January 7, 2018

** BRAZIL. 9665.011, Jan 7 at 0616, Voz Missionária with music is almost on-frequency, while most of the other 31m ZYs remain offset as much as 1 kHz, from 9565, 9675, 9725, 9820 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15580, 15510, 15440, 15300, 15230 and weaker 15160, 15090, 15020, 15650, Jan 7 at 1540, filthy distorted spurblobs out of 15370 RHC are now at close to 70 kHz intervals, which mean they land more directly upon channels occupied by real stations, including RHC`s own other 19m frequency, 15230! And 15580 VOA. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 6150, UT Sun Jan 7 at 0149, The Mighty KBC via GERMANY is S9+15, no het or other QRM, which Kraig Krist had complained of. Song “Never Know What You`re Missing“; then 0151, Kraig`s own Forgotten Song segment, about Dave Matthews who moved from RSA to Charlottesville VA, formed a band in April 1995, and had a #16 hit in May 2005, title missed due to fade, plays it, and no back-announce (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 15390, Jan 7 at 1540, REE is still distorted on this frequency, altho the carrier is stable; weaker but clearer on // 15500. BTW, 15390 for B-17 was announced as for S America, altho in A-17 it had been for Mideast. In fact, current HFCC claims both are on 110 degrees, surely not really (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1860-AM, Jan 7 at 0215, WA0RCR is S9+20 with a hamified version of `Twas the Night Before Xmas` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3245-USB, Jan 7 at 0210, MARS net, poor signal with abbr`d calls 5R7 and 5XF in contact, discussing 126 vs 127 formats, whatever that mean. Another call mentioned is AA5OAO (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1911 monitoring: UT Sunday January 7 at 0200, I strain to hear me on WRMI 11580, which for weeks has been fading out by this hour: opening theme is barely recognizable, S3 at band noise level. At 0223 slightly better, I can recognize my voice with ECSS help, but still unreadable. From next week, all 11580 programming replaced by 7780, which will certainly be an improvement at this hour, altho not the best for us, as aimed NE toward Europe rather than NW across this continent. Also confirmed UT Sun Jan 7 at 0428 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO, at the item about XEPPM, 14 minutes into show, so started circa 0414.

Manuel Méndez, Friol, Spain reports: “9485, Hamburger LokalRadio, Göhren, 1055-1159, 07-01 [Sunday], German, comments, ID “Hamburger LokalRadio”, at 1100 English, “This is Hamburger LokalRadio”, comments, at 1130 Glenn Hauser’s program “World of Radio”. 25432“

** U S A. 7489.931v, UT Sun Jan 7 at 0117, WBCQ playing back an `Allan Weiner Worldwide`, always a handy choice to fill an hour. Seems like the one right after the transmitter fire, familiar comments, about how Angela cleaned up the building, Terry vacuumed for three solid days. AW had also, on an AWW, publicly shamed `Mitch & Kathy` for being six months behind in paying their bills, may not be on much longer, and this was their slot, UT Sun 01-02 as still shown on the schedule (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sun Jan 7 at 0204, WTWW-2 with Ted`s ad block including for Heil products, ID as “9930“, 0205 finally starts `Theater Organ in the Ozarx“, with Bob Heil. Says his voice is ailing, so more music, less talk, until 0237. Normally a huge blasting signal, now it`s *only* S9+10 fading to S8, and decreasing during the semi-hour. For once, this is not enough to audiblize the parasite carriers near 5072 and 5098.

5830, Jan 7 at 0611, WTWW-1 is off, while neighbor WWCR is strong on 5890 & 5935. Could be stuck on day frequency 9475, but if so, not propagating. 9475 is ops normal at 1644 check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3185, Jan 7 at 0605, WWRB is off as it has been all evening, close to the end of BS on this station? Irregular operation, so one can never be sure: it could even be stuck on day frequency 9370 but if so, not propagating at all. 9370 is also off at 1644 Jan 7, when it would certainly be heard if on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1067 & 1093 peaks, Jan 7 at 0232 UT, IBOC noise is back out of 1080 KRLD. Mark Sills in Dallas had welcomed its absence during December. DXers hope that CBS disposing of stations to Entercom would also lead to the end of IBOC upon them (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1120, Jan 7 at 0227 UT, KMOX interviewing conductor Leonard Slatkin about the classical music world, surprisingly. Show is `KMOX Profiles` at 01-03 UT Sundays, followed by the classic rock show deviating from news/talk, `Route 66 on KMOX with Johnny Rabbitt`, UT Sundays 03-07 per sked:
KMOX Programming Schedule

UNIDENTIFIED. 6935-LSB, Jan 7 at 0140, good signal 2-way talk in Brazuguese, with a much weaker contact, I encounter instead of any N American pirates on this band (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
