Glenn Hauser logs February 21-22, 2018

** BRAZIL. 11780, Feb 21 at 1457, Portuguese song, 1459 R. Nacional ID, S9 fading to S5; but gone by 1532 recheck. At least there was no ACI from 11775 Anguilla, off more than on. I wonder what the schedule of 11780 is, or is supposed to be? More or less daytime-only, and no use of 6180 at night (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 413 kHz, Feb 22 at 0728 UT, beacon YHD and dash, from Dryden, Ontario.
382 kHz, Feb 22 at 0731, beacon YPL and dash, from Pickle Lake, Ont

** CANADA. 1610, Feb 22 at 1338 UT, strumming chords from NE/SW, 1340 UT Spanish and fading. There are no 1610 Americans except HAR/TIS. I have no luck with the Mexicans, but seems rather late for Toronto; yet CHHA ID in Spanish at 1401 UT, almost a bihour after its sunrise at 1205 UT, and almost a unihour after Enid`s at 1311 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ETHIOPIA. 7170-7190 and 7130-7150, Feb 22 at 0355, very heavy DRM jamming spreading 20 rather than 10 kHz, centered about the Eritrean frequencies where not even carriers can be detected amid the noise. Jam peaks at S9 around 7140 and 7180 but the lower one unsounds quite as loud. All intruding messing up a lot of the worldwide exclusive “40m“ hamband (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ETHIOPIA. 7235.554, Feb 22 at 1408, JBA carrier, no doubt the widely variant R. Ethiopia by longpath; no jamming or Eritreans audible now below 7200 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GERMANY [non]. 15215, Feb 21 at 1600, JBA carrier as I am checking for the yearly broadcast of Radio Öömrang via FRANCE. Yet S9+ signals from 15620 dead air listed as VOA Somali via Woofferton; 15435 Saudi.

By 1607 I`m on UTwente, and there it is, rather off-mike conversations in Frisian? with background noise. Reminiscing presumably. Not a solid signal as UTwente is too close to Issoudun. Perhaps they are doing better into New York City target? 1615 switches to English, “didn`t know anything about pregnancy…“ and back to (high?) German. Something about “4 pm“, etc. Did not cut off until about 1702*.

Tnx to our reminder several hours earlier on the WOR iog, several others were tuning it, including John A Figliozzi in FL:

“Booming into southwest Florida with a rather relaxed program as if speakers are moving around a room (kitchen?) with people coming and going (doors opening and closing?). Radio Oomrang and its strictly once a year idiosyncratic program, mostly in German with a little English heard now and then and also presumably the Frisian dialect. Program is either a play of some sort or a very relaxed informal conversation among friends. Numerous sounds of boots walking, doors closing and chairs moving. Excellent signal heard from 1628 tune in – SIO 545. WRTH ‘18 says using Issoudun transmitter in France. (21 Feb.)
John Figliozzi, Sarasota, FL, Sony ICF-2010 (off whip)“

And also better into California, from Ron Howard:

“15215, Radio Öömrang via Issoudun (France). Thanks to Glenn for the timely alert! Carrier on-off and on again at 1559; briefly on at 1600, then cut off, but came back on again; seemed to be in German, local language and English; “Hello. This is Radio Öömrang, the freedom voice of Öömrang,” “this hour for New York Öömrang inhabitants”; interview with a couple married 52 years.

Glenn – your “4 pm” was “4 o’clock pm. It’s very cold. We are interviewing the young landlord”; several spots with just the sound of seagulls or with announcers talking over the sound of seagulls; some audio hum. My audio of mostly English posted at
Ron Howard, Asilomar State Beach, CA, Etón E1, 100′ long wire“

** KURDISTAN [non]. 7520, Feb 22 at 0354, poor S4-S6, presumed Kurdish music from Denge Welat via ARMENIA; if also on 7320, can`t hear vs 7315 WHRI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1210, Feb 22 at 1327 UT, KGYN Guymon now with VG signal during M-F poetry spot by Jim Thompson; then about an app for market info; ad for grocery in Northridge Mall, Top Value with the “add 10 percent“ gimmick; Enid now has one of these, different name. Official Feb FCC sunrise for KGYN is not until 1330 UT, but don`t let that stop them already running ND 10 kW; March: 1300 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 7780, Feb 22 at 0353, TOM via WRMI is poor S4-S6, // much stronger 7730. I haven`t heard unscheduled 7780 much later at night like Ivo once noted. WRMI skedgrid continues to unshow anything on #1, 7780 between 0300 and 1700 (except other religionism Sundays only 13-16) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also USA: WRMI

** U S A. 410 kHz, Feb 22 at 0729, beacon EGQ, from Emmetsburg, Iowa.
392 kHz, Feb 22 at 0731 UT, beacon FMZ, from Fairmont – Beklof, Nebraska (note that Beklof spelt backwards is Folkeb), 25 watts (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 15620, Feb 21 at 1601, S9+10 of dead air; I can only assume it is as scheduled in HFCC: VOA Somali, 250 kW, 126 degrees from Woofferton UK at 1600-1800 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1918 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday February 21 at 2200 on WBCQ 7490.05v, very good S9+10/20, and not #1917 which was not aired last week. Enjoy such reception while we can, as latening sunsets progressively degrade this propagation, and a drastic retiming to 2100 in three weeks due to the imposition of daylight shifting will worsen it even more. (BTW, add OK to the list of states with pending legislation to keep DST going all year!) Also confirmed UT Thu Feb 22 at 0030 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB. Next:

Full WOR schedule via all media, podcast access:

** U S A. 9330.320v-CUSB, Feb 22 at 1415, WBCQ fair with TOM, lately staying on the hi side in the .2s or .3s (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also SOUTH CAROLINA [non]

** U S A. 9395, Feb 21 at 1457, WRMI Oldies with VOA News in progress; before turning it Over to the Comer at 1500.

7780, Feb 22 at 1413, WRMI Oldies is on this Thursday, // much stronger 9395. Yet sked grid shows 7780 supposed to be off; see also SOUTH CAROLINA [non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9455, Feb 21 at 1418, WRMI, speaking Spanish with a Brazilian accent, too-quick SW sked info about Spain, Taiwan, Korea, Egypt, various Brazilians as on air 00 a 24; audio is also condensed with certain syllables skipped; via Skype?? Outro as someone from the DX Clube sem Fronteiras em Pernambuco, on `Frecuencia al Día` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5830, Feb 21 at 0704, WTWW-1 is S3-S5 of dead air; no loss (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1190, Feb 22 at 1325 UT, 1190 Fort Wayne “Wo-wo“ ID with FM 107..5, which is a mere translator W298BJ. 50000/9800 U2. I haven`t heard this one in ages. There are two MO stations in between and many others. Must now be on ND full day power since 1230 UT in Feb, 1200 UT in March. Night pattern is tight N/S in deference to WLIB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1290, Feb 22 at 1329 UT, outro `Focus on Agriculture` from CSP? radio network, Wichita Falls closings due to icy weather, Cinemark Theatres` new size restrixions on carry-in bags, (evidently to discourage dismantled rifles or large bombs) from News Channel 6 (KAUZ RF 22). (I also heard same story on 1330 KCKM Monahans, about Mid/Essa. Enid`s only movie theatre is no longer Cinemark, but AMC under ChiCom control, so guns OK?) KWFS is licensed 5000/73 U1, but noticeably weaker in daytime lately with STA renewed of reduced power to 60%, i.e. about 3 kW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Feb 21 at 0309-0315: 531, 621, 711, 747, 855(2), 882, 909, 936*, 1116, 1152, 1215, 1431, 1575. *936 often has a bigger signal; what`s likely? Morocco 100 kW, tho there are equal or higher powers in Syria, Saudi, Iran; while in Europe nothing more than 3 x 20 kW in Spain (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13564.316-CW, Feb 22 at 1444, HIFER beacon called RF, vs CODAR, but no K6FRC audible nearby yet. Probably east of here rather than west. LWCA roster has it on 13564.330, location still unknown more precisely than grid EM96 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15630.039, Feb 21 at 1534, weak wobbling carrier. If not a local device, HFCC shows imaginary wooden entry for RSOman at 1400-1730; even more likely Cairo which supposedly uses 15630 via Abis only at 1300-1400 in Persian (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 88.1 MHz approx., Feb 21 at 1750, 1757, 1804, 1811 UT, very fast CW ID ending with R is firing like clockwork every 7 minutes. I notice this since I am trying to listen to my Part 15 FM feeder on 88.1 with input from some TV station I want to hear on a remote radio in the house. Presumably from a local ham repeater on 2 meters, or maybe 6? This has happened before, and I am not sure whether my feeder is involved in this or not, but I haven`t figured out how an IF mix or anything would wind up on this frequency. I haven`t heard it on any other radio tuned to 88.1. Maybe sometime I will be able to copy the ID (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
