Glenn Hauser logs April 1-2-3, 2018

** ALBANIA [non]. 9395, UT Tue April 3 at 0202, WRMI still with Radio Tirana in Italian instead of English. No reply yet from shortwaveservice about fixing this, maybe on holiday, but BRIAN POWELL, VK2FBAJ, Sydney, Australia, says, “I think the issue lies with their feed of Radio Tirana, which I suspect is The podcasts I am subscribed to (R. Tirana and R. Havana) have been in the incorrect language since the shift to summer time a couple of weeks ago, so I would suspect that timed recordings at Radio360 have not been adjusted appropriately. R. Havana via Radio360 podcasts has been corrected in the last week or so.“ Another good reason for dispensing with “daylight time“ (Glenn Hauser, WORLD OF RADIO 1924, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ARGENTINA [non]. 9395, April 2 circa 1930, RAE in German via WRMI; but 2003 check on caradio, in VOA News, so must still be Oldies this hour instead of RAE Italian (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CONGO. 6115, April 3 at 0555, checking for Brazzaville, but no signal; recheck at 0604, now there is a carrier. Maybe signed on in the interim, missed by my itchy finger tuners. On March 30, Ron Howard said he “just missed sign-on at 0555“ as CCI from R. Nikkei 2, Japan was growing. As we get further into spring and summer, RN2 should be propagating less and less, by Congo about the same insofar as relation to sunrise/sunsets (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15439 & 15301, April 2 at 1343, these RHC spurs are equally audible in FM and AM tuning, unusual. Fundamental 15370 must be heard in AM only. The second pair out also have some AM, but more FM, 15508 & 15233 [vs 15230]. More at ~69 kHz multiples are blobby: 15577, 15646, 15715? 15163, 15095? Something`s always wrong at RHC.

15370, April 3 at 1337, not on yet so no spurs either. By 1415 is on with all these approx. FM blobs: 15439, 15507, 15575, 15643; 15302, 15234, 15166, 15098, 15040, 14962 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUAM. 12140.010, UT Sunday April 1 at 2208, KSDA, AWR with preaching in English, praise music, seems some IADs – intermittent audio dropouts, good S9+10; NOT `Wavescan`. There had been some contradictory info about whether WS was on this transmission, which is not in English every day, such as UT Saturday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRELAND [non]. 5820, April 3 at 1931 via UTwente SDR, a JBA carrier. Checking for RTÉ via Madagascar, as reported from Italy as if it had been reactivated after a couple years. I suspect it`s more likely a Europirate; Wolfgang Büschel replies:

“Glenn, I asked the pirate group guys now to identify the pirate pop station from Netherlands, many adverts of Holland firms, like Subaru cars in Rotterdam. And “Frank H. Schuettig” replied to that:

Subject: Re: 5820.001 hollandse Käse-K Sender — Auf 5820 kHz ist sehr häufig der belgische Pirat “Radio 319” zu hören (ist sozusagen seine “Stammfrequenz”). Er bringt überwiegend alte Mitschnitte von Offshore-Stationen. Eigene Ansagen sind eher selten. Frank“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9460, April 2 at 2013, poor S5-S8, music mix, hints of German? Must be those umlauts, since by 2057* I can tell it`s Türkish (why so many Turx find Deutschland a heimat?) Yes, TRT scheduled here until 2100 per EiBi, but missing from HFCC. Did not notice it being off-frequency-plus as usual from Emirler.

11615.032, April 3 at 2011, music at S2-S4; 2019 talk but can`t tell language; 2023 recognizable TRT IS. So VOT in scheduled French from 1930 to West Africa (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1923 monitoring: confirmed Sunday April 1 after 2330 on WBCQ, 9330v-CUSB, good and stronger than 9265 WINB & 9395 WRMI. Also confirmed UT Monday April 2 from 0303 on Area 51 webcast; and good S9 at 0326 check on WBCQ 5129.81. Not confirmed at 0330 on WRMI 9955, JBA carrier but confirmed on webcast at 0344.

Will have to check other nights what happen: UT Wed April 4 at 0425, entrevista in Spanish. 0431 music; 0530 Slovakia in Spanish!

Full WOR sked on all outlets, podcast access:

** U S A. 7490+, UT Tue April 3 at 0100, WBCQ with a recent `Allan Weiner Worldwide` repeat, and still at 0153 recheck, instead of Blalock the Blaster, who had been showing more than once in this hour; neither on the schedule alleging that 7490 close at 0100* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395 // 9455, April 3 at 0556, VOA News is good at S9 on both, so WRMI `Oldies` streams (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9475, April 2 at 2014, WTWW-1 is OFF, and so are all the other four possible frequencies. 5830 also off at 0559 April 3 (while neighbor 5935 WWCR is VG) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
