Glenn Hauser logs February 18-19, 2018

** CANADA. 382 kHz, Feb 19 at 0704 UT, beacon YPL and dash, 1000 watts from Pickle Lake, Ont. Spring is nigh, and some lightning crashes are starting, worse on lower frequencies, which may curtail such DXing before long (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6165, UT Mon Feb 19 at 0246, RHC is undermodulated — and in Spanish instead of English! In fact it`s `En Contacto` wrapping up early from nominal 0235 start, just the same as I had it 12 hours earlier. Only 6000 is on now in English, the others Spanish: 5040, 9535, 9640; 11760 VP dead air or something else?

Recheck at 0508, 6165 is still Spanish, not // 6000 music in English service. 6165 still Spanish, hum and undermodulated, at 0644. At 0646, 6060 is also Spanish with big hum, instead of English after 0600. Something`s always wrong at RHC. At least 6000 now has good modulation and lite hum during music in presumed solo English hours (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, UT Mon Feb 19 at 0512-0521, Arnie Coro confirmed reactivated `DXers Unlimited`, only 9 minutes long, mostly about propagation, citing WWV info without credit, and OK1HH, the propagation info from PIG I would quote on MN+. Except for canned open & close, he`s lo fi via phone as usual from home; deep fades impede 100% copy. Content is about the same as he uttered on Spanish DX program; convergence of the two to be expected with the same guy in charge (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15370-AM, Feb 19 at 1425, no FM spurs detected today; something`s not wrong at RHC. Seems modulation has been decreased, maybe reducing the spewage (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ETHIOPIA [and non]. 7236.280, Feb 19 at 1410, substantial carrier no doubt from R. Ethiopia long-path; keeps drifting upward as I try to measure it, but nailed here at 1416. Also weaker JBA carriers from the Eritreans not remeasured precisely, 7181.55, 7140.0+ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH AFRICA [and non]. 6155, Feb 19 at 0253, African music S9-S7, 0300 Channel Africa ID. I was not expecting to hear this before scheduled *0300, so a prélude? Or was it the otherstation scheduled 0200-0300, BBCWS in English via Oman? Did not notice any transmission transition (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGESTE)

** U S A. 347 kHz, Feb 19 at 0704 UT, beacon AFK, which is Nebraska City, NE. Classaxe says power unknown and notes the ID is fast (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1917 monitoring: Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria confirms:

“GERMANY, Reception of World of Radio via HLR on 9485 CUSB, Feb 18
http://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.bg/2018/02/reception-of-world-of-radio-via-hlr-on_18.html
1131-1200 9485 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg CeEu English Sun, weak/fair“

I confirmed UT Monday February 19 at 0030 on WBCQ, 9330.30v-CUSB, fair. Also confirmed from 0400 UT Mon Feb 19 on Area 51 webcast, and via WBCQ, 5129.83, fair-good at 0414. Also confirmed UT Mon Feb 19 at 0436 the 0430 on WRMI 9455 S9+10/20 and weaker // 9955 (just a semihour earlier both were JBA). Next:
Tue 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030 WRMI 7780 to NE, 9455 to WNW [or #1918?] Tue 2130 WRMI 9455 to WNW [or #1918?]

** U S A. 9330.241v-CUSB, Feb 19 at 1553, WBCQ BS is poor; had been rather stable around 9330.3 the last few days (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9475 & 5830, Feb 19 at 1552, WTWW-1 is missing from both day and night frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1130, Feb 18 at 1911 UT and 2048 UT chex, KLEY Wellington KS is still totally SNAFU as described before, since first discovered Feb 14, but may have been that way much earlier; now I intend to reconfirm at least once a day: likewise Feb 19 at 1515 UT. Incredible that anystation would let this go on and on and on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1260, Feb 19 at 1521 UT, YL in Spanish is atop, presumably the one I have heard before, KDLF, Boone IA (Des Moines market = De Los Monjes).. NRC AM Log shows the other SS 1260s are in: AR-silent, FL, ID, SC, TX, some of them religious. Now rather than Spanish from 1250 KS, 1270 TX which are more common (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Feb 19 at 0648: conditions not as good as have been, but detect: 531, 558, 567, 585, 603, 693, 747, 837, 855, 882, 999, 1089, 1098, 1125(2), 1215 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1806 UT February 19
