Glenn Hauser logs February 5, 2019

** CUBA. 12300, Feb 5 at 1349, JBA second harmonic of RHC 6150; I don`t usually scan this area, but seek it since Wolfgang Bueschel recently heard it remotely with a strong signal; not today, but nearby fundamentals are very strong: 11950 S9+40 and 11760 S9+10/20. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13634, 13767, 13833, 13900 approx., Feb 5 at 1450, FMish spurs out of 13700-AM RHC, but extremely distorted and unreadable in any mode; standard intervals of about 67 kHz above and below. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13779.24, Feb 5 at 1453, this RHC fundamental at S9+20 has again been knocked way off-frequency from 13780.00. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15370, Feb 5 at 2152, RHC is VP S5, JBM in Arabic? As supposed to be per EiBi until 2200, then a bihour of Spanish; so no constellation of FM spurs audible today; might have been if a regular bigsig and modulation. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 9515, Feb 5 at 2027, S4-S6 of lo-key music, seems like a repeating loop, so IS? Listed as AWR French via Talata from 2000, 125 kW at 320 degrees also USward. Off at 2028* without announcement (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Feb 5 at 0725, one more day with no VON, nor on 9690-; no LAH to 9690 Spain either around 2000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9785, Feb 5 at 1429, JBA carrier, 1430 JBA timesignal, presumed VOT starting Kazakh. Checking here after finding 12035.7 preceding English was already off by 1429 today; to fathom whether I can hear the next frequency, the next time sloppyrators fail to turn off 12035V in time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1968 monitoring: confirmed first SWBC this week, Tuesday February 5 at 2030 on WRMI 7780, S9-S5, after 2029.5 Rudy Espinal ID and a second of music intruding. Next:

** U S A. 7490.17v, Tue Feb 5 at 2032, WBCQ S9-S6 with mixture of blues and country music, then “Pirate Joe Extravaganzo“ as J. P. Ferraro`s show earlifies WBCQ sign-on Tuesdays only to *2000 (from DST season even earlier *1900 despite increasing daytime absorption); 2046 “WHVW“ singing ID for his own originating station in Hyde Park NY (Poughkeepsie address), which on 950 is only 500/57 watts U1 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9475-, Feb 5 at 2028, no signal from WTWW-1 — oh oh, has Ted done it again, left the night frequency on allday? Evidently, as 5830 is indeed on at S9+10/20 with PPPP. But 5085, WTWW-2 is not on now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 750, Feb 5 at 1404 UT, `Newstalk 750 KBNN and 104.3“, i.e. 5 kW ND daytimer in Lebanon MO, overcoming KMMJ. Seldom heard other than at sunrise; last logged April 25. NRC AM Log has no FM. WTFDA DB shows no 104.3 corresponding either, but per both, KMMJ Nebraska *does* have a 104.3 translator. Sure did not sound like it at the time, but the ID I heard must have been a mixture of the two. KBNN website is the least important part of cluster, showing little about it except a low-res logo and link to public file. The logo does say Talk, if not News-Talk, while KMMJ is religious (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 405 kHz, Feb 5 at 1340 UT just after sunrise, NDB HRU, which is 25 watts from Herington, Kansas, south of Junxion City on US 77 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 420 kHz, Feb 5 at 0730 UT, two JBA NDBs clashing at same pitch, very hard to unravel; no dash, not Canadian. shows only four Americans, all 25 watts: CFY, Lake City-Evans SC; FQ, Fairmont MN; PK, Olathe-Herbb KS; TU, Tupelo-Verona MS.

I`ve heard FQ before, and PK would be the closest. shows additional details such as frequency offset (meaning A2 pitch?), and length in seconds of each ID sending. From that, the closet pitch matches would be CFY and PK, both 1018 USB, periods 5.7 and 5.5, which means that very slowly their overlap will be shifting. FQ is not close enough, at 1035 Hz; rules out TU at only 383 USB. All four have been logged this year (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5055-USB, Feb 5 at 1358, weak 2-way in Spanish rather than 4KZ; various numbers but seems weather info, also verbalizing máxima, nublado, fresco, evaporación (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15345.069, Feb 5 at 1524, JBA carrier I have often noticed before but not measured precisely. Look it up: Nothing on 15345 ever in HFCC, EiBi and Aoki! Could it be another Cuban spur I have overlooked? It is 205.069 kHz above 15140, but not a multiple of 28.6. Maybe a spur of something else or a local device? Try for it again three sesquihours later at 1954: yes, JBAC still there but slightly shifted to 15345.053.

Unless anyone else hear it, I shall conclude it`s local, inaudible beyond my radio room. (Computer produces many more stronger birdies on SW which I always ignore.) Remember when 15345 had two variable off-frequency stations het-clashing, Argentina and Morocco? Now both gone from SW as if they knocked each other out (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
