Glenn Hauser logs January 12-13, 2019

** CUBA. 9720, Jan 12 at 2210, RHC in Kriyol, not English! Which supposedly had settled into the 22-23 UT slot. 2253 recheck, song in Spanish, 2255 French announcement; a smidgin before 2300, RHC English theme and opening by “Ed Newman“, cut off the air after about 6 words! So the studio playout had their language tapes mixed up, and the transmitter site wasn`t about to compensate for that. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000 // 6165, Jan 13 at 0137, RHC is S9+10/20 just barely modulated with soul music, 0140 English announcement, also somewhat suptorted. Meanwhile 6060 Spanish blasts in. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 5975-5980-5985, Jan 12 at 2313, DRM noise, not strong but plenty to wipe out any carrier from R. Chaski, Perú, supposedly still on air until 2400v*. Got to be RRI Galbeni, English to W Europe, registered as analog, but has flipped to DRM before (or maybe is really always DRM).

More evidence that failing DRM should *never* have been allowed to pollute the analog SWBC bands. There are scads of open areas in the nearby fixed utility bands (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 5960, Jan 12 at 2310, no signal from VOT English to N America, again. Is anyone hearing this any more? A couple times before, I figured it were more of their frequent screwups. OTOH, propagation is pitiful, hardly anything else on 49m from Eurasia, the best being 6175 CRI Spanish, 280 degrees from Cërrik, Albania — should be close enough to Emirler for both to propagate if on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1964 monitoring: confirmed Saturday January 12 at 2200 on WRMI 9955, fair-good. Next:

** U S A. 7489.980v, Jan 12 at 2300, WBCQ starts with “Welcome to the second Good Time Oldies; who am I? West Virginia Paul“. Good S9+10, then plays at least three songs segué; editing seems a bit rough. Not sure what he means by “second“ as the show has been running for many more weeks than that — and it`s the one scheduled for an even one hundred minutes. Beyond that nothing known about him or it. No sign of the 7490.00 ChiCom CCI, but propagation is pitiful and we`re lucky to get anything intra-continental, let alone extra-, but WBCQ unusually so close to frequency on the low rather than high side would make a heterodyne almost subaudible (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5950, Sat Jan 12 at 2313, WRMI with VORW, // stronger 9395. The System G program grid claims it`s on 9395 only, just another example of reality not matching the schedule (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9265, UT Sun Jan 13 at 0130, I`m all set to hear the `International Radio Report` via Unique Radio via WINB — but it`s only a JBA carrier! Little besides WRMI and Cuba are propagating on 31m. By 0153 I`ve brought up the WINB webcast at http://winb.mntts.com:82/broadwave.mp3 and what do I hear? The song “Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald“, which is semi-Canadian, but not what I would expect to be played on IRR. Finally at 0159 we hear Aussie Tim ID as Unique Radio, a bit more music before cut off for WINB ID and 0200 “FKB Radio Sermon Time“ — he`s looking forward to worldwide coverage on 500 kW WBCQ 7490.

UT Fri Jan 11 at 0130 I was also all set to hear Unique`s other primetime spot on 9265, till I realized it had been an hour earlier at 0030. But I expect what I heard this time was the ending of that show, not the IRR (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 4980, Jan 12 at 2315, Supreme Master TV on WRMI has QRM from weak RTTY about 4981.15, separate from the much stronger RTTY on 4985; yet evitable by LSB tuning (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VIETNAM [non]. 7315, Jan 13 at 0136, via WHRI, VOV in stilted English, something about the Mekong Delta, S9+20/30 — they`ve done it again, mixed up languages as Spanish is supposed to air on the half-hours. Also Larry Zamora received a colorful New Year card from them, but accompanying schedule is slightly outdated, claiming VOV are also on 6175 to North America. That was the relay via defunct RCI! And 6175 had replaced BBCWS relay which gave up on us even before that (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search earlier than I usually try it, after not detecting any LWBC, Jan 12 from 2323 UT on the R75 and E-W longwire: 531, 549, 558, 585, 603, 612, 621(2), 639, 684, 711, 729, 747, 774, 837, 855, 864, 882, 909*, 936, 954, 999, 1026(2), 1044(2), 1053, 1089*, 1107, 1152(2), 1179(2), 1215*, 1296, 1305(2), 1341, 1422, 1458(2), 1485, 1503, 1539. *the three strongest ones all correlate with UK; (2) = at least two carriers beating; again the most pronounced being 1305 likely Spain synchros (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9000, Jan 12 at 2212, S5-S9 of open carrier, still at 2250 and 2309 chex. Not a local device or receiver birdie since it`s propagationally fading. Maybe some broadcast transmitter supposed to be higher in the 9 MHz band, or utility lower in the 8 MHz band, but slipped a finger or defaulted to even MHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 0405 UT January 13
