Glenn Hauser logs March 5-6, 2019

** CUBA. 5040, March 6 at 0123, RHC Kriyol is S9+30 but distorted. 5040 at 0650 recheck, S9+20 suppressed and very distorted English, Something`s always wrong at RHC. Other English at 0650: 6100 S9+40 and suptorted with hum; 6165 = 6000 undermodulated but sufficient; 6060 VG S9+30 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 101.5-WBFM, March 5 at 1942 UT, I notice Spanish cutting off and on the air regularly. At first seemed it might have been due to Vance aircraft scatter, but no. Later I monitor it closely:

It`s the new full FM station, KOCD in Okeene, which is a satellite of an LPFM in OKC, as first reported in DXLD 19-06, KWDW-LP, 93.9, Radio Salvación. I monitor continuously 2300-2313 UT March 5, and after a partial ToH ID as Okeene, it`s absolutely regular: on for 7 seconds, off for 25 seconds. The cut-offs are abrupt, while the cut-ons are a gradual fadeup lasting a second or two. This is still going on the next day March 6 at 1527 check. Is no one paying attention? Makes it rather frustrating to follow the programming, mostly praise music. Perhaps someone familiar with FM transmitters can explain this peculiar behaviour? (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. RF 27, March 6 at 1540 UT, one of my two outside antennas fails to decode KFOR, OKC; must be due to DX QRM as Hepburn tropo map shows level-1 minor enhancement in a small blob between here and Tulsa. Tulsa does have a 27, per as a CP for the 3ABN satellator, K40KC-D, i.e. in process of QSY after which it will certainly get a K27## callsign, but it`s only 2 kW. More likely the culprit is KFTA-TV, 600 kW in Fort Smith AR. But I am not seeing any other signs of DTVDX, such as Bad signals on open channels (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 4020-USB, March 5 at 1335, net discussing whether a new frequency will be necessary come DST. Hush-hush, no kHz mentioned, only secret designators such as R71 or R73. After all, the Enemy might overhear! A new frequency matrix came out in January, which one of them has not received. How I`d love to see that; what level of classification is upon it? Only abbr`d calls such as 5PL, 5PQ, 5DT; poor signals. Presumably Air Force MARS. My last 4020 log had calls starting with 7:

“4020-USB, March 30 [2018] at 1241, MARS net, contact between 7DP and 7DT, then AFA7DT formal “closedown, out“. Hard to search out any recent info on AFA7DT QTH“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1972 monitoring: confirmed first SW broadcast Tuesday March 5 at 2048 the 2030 on WRMI 7780, fair.

Or maybe there was an earlier one, as Aussie Tim informed us at 0936 UT Tuesday: “Listeners can hear a double episode of World of Radio on Unique Radio 5045 kHz Tuesdays 0900 to 1000 UT. Great reception normally on these SDR’s : –
Best regards, Tim Gaynor, Unique Radio, Gunnedah NSW, Australia“.

** U S A. 7505.035, March 5 at 1350, WRNO is still on with music, Chinese announcement, S9+10/20 and slightly suptorted. Frequency accuracy is improved but still far from spot-on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, March 5 at 2232, JBA carrier and the OSOB; apparently KVOH on extended schedule despite pitiful propagation. March 6 at 1525, no signal nor any whatsoever on 16m — NSOB — no signals on band (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1480, March 6 at 0119 UT, Vietnamese still in the mix, at times atop, from KBXD Dallas. Is it 100% VV or at least SE Asian? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1716 UT March 6
