Glenn Hauser logs July 24-25, 2018

** BRAZIL. 11780, July 25 at 0141, RNA is still on with Brazuguese conversation at S9+20. I`ve yet to catch when they turn it off, but apparently not (yet?) all-night (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11700, July 25 at 0142, RHC is JBM here unlike much louder 11760, 11840, 12000. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUAM. 12040, UT Tuesday July 24 at 2201, “Jesus Walked on H2O“ song at S2-S4, 2205 talk about fish courtship dances (?), 2205 Adventist World Radio ID in passing. Such is the diverse programming presented by the Adv. sect of Christianity. In Aoki/NDXC, KSDA is scheduled 2200-2230 in English on days 2/4/7 = Mon/Wed/Sat, and Sundanese the other days! Someone is mixed up, probably displaying *local* days in the FE, rather than UT days properly to match the times. If English is really on UT Sun/Tue/Fri, that could make it possible for `Wavescan` to be on this transmission Sundays, but I doubt it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1940 monitoring: first airing confirmed Tuesday July 24 from 2330:15 on WBCQ, 9330v, fair-good. I was a bit concerned when BS was still running past 2329 when WBCQ normally cuts to own ID and giving promo, but came on a few seconds late. This could be the only instance WBCQ will air WOR at 2330; you never know, following Allan`s initial decision to run it every day.

Also confirmed Wednesday July 25 at 1030 on WRMI 5950, when unfortunately I am awake after a nightmare knocking the bedside YB-400 off its easel; only poor pre-sunrise despite aimed thisaway.

Also confirmed Wednesday July 25 from *2103, WRMI cutting 9955 on late so JIP WOR: it`s fair S8-S9, but loud & clear on webcast, an improvement over last week`s SNAFUs. Simultaneously probably started on time 2100 via WBCQ 7490v but a JBA carrier. It too is L&C on webcast checked at 2110, just a few words ahead of WRMI. Next:
Thu 2330 WBCQ 9930v to WSW [maybe] Fri 2330 WBCQ 9330v to WSW [maybe] Sat 0631 HLR 6190-CUSB to WSW
Sat 1431 HLR 6190-CUSB to WSW
Sat 1930v WA0RCR 1860-AM ND
Sat 2130 WBCQ 9330v to WSW [maybe, or 2330?] Sun 0310v WA0RCR 1860-AM ND
Sun 1030 HLR 9485-CUSB to WSW
Sun 2330 WBCQ 9330v to WSW [maybe] Mon 0130.5 WRMI 5850 to NW, 7780 to NE
Mon 0300v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW

** U S A. 9395, July 25 at 1925 for at least three minutes, dead air from WRMI at S5-S7; while BS proceeds on WBCQ 9330+ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5935, July 25 at 0150, WWCR-2 is OFF. Supposed to start daily at *0000 with DGS, succeeding 13845 DGS until 2400* on different transmitter WWCR-3 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7615-USB, July 25 at 0153, weak transmission of fonetik alfanumerix: “TRPL3 N6VPN N6VPN W7RKQ W7RKQ — how copy?“ at 0154. Can`t hear a reply and neither can transmitter; says will try to pass traffic again tomorrow morning. Civil Air Patrol net is ordinarily here, as in my last previous log over a year ago:

“7615-USB, July 13 [2017] at 0106, Civil Air Patrol net starting with contact between Triblade 20 and 19; one announces that Alert Level 3 is in effect (OMG!), and cites traffic list. Much weaker Beaver Fox 8 replies as willing to accept traffic. Cloak & dagger stuff from these para-militarists (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)“

N6VPN and W7RKQ look like ordinary ham calls, of course, but perhaps coincidental? Maybe Louis A. Correa of La Habra CA would be interested to know his call was cited here; but there is no W7RKQ at ARRL lookup (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
