Glenn Hauser logs March 12-13, 2019

** BRAZIL. 11780, March 13 at 0137, RNA mentioning stations relaying this program in Pernambuco, TC for 22:38. S9/S9+20 good and hardly anything else on 25m except stronger RHC on 11840, 11760, 11700, 11670. Meanwhile, RNA is not on 6180, leaving it clear for CRI English via Cuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6165 & 6100 & 6060 & 6000, Tue March 12 at 0631, all four RHC English, at a variety of modulation levels, remain on this hour (but not 5040), unlike last night, when due to EDT(?) only one of them did.

So here we go, utter confusion at RHC about how to cope with clock time changes. Not checked morning or afternoon of Monday March 11 as I was busy preparing and recording WORLD OF RADIO 1973, but by Tuesday March 12 I find things quite different than they were on Sunday, first day of EDT. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

9720, March 12 at 2145, is NOT on the air, despite Sunday having moved English-allegedly-to-Africa into the 21-22 hour instead of 22-23. But today at *2154 the RHC IS starts playing, until 2201 morphing into theme and opening — French! Then at 2245 check the second half of this hour is back in — Brazuguese! i.e. where they had been until March 10. 9720 at 2317 check is in — English! Where it was before, but now // 5040 which has shifted an hour earlier. So now English again starts at 1 am in RSA where it is supposedly aimed, 23-24 UT. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

15370, March 12 at 2144, RHC is in Spanish along with 9640 and very poor 11760; and still at 2211 check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5990, March 13 at 0101, CRI English relay starting news, but cut to dead air at 0101.5, and cut carrier at 0102.4*. Supposed to be turned off before 0100. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also BRAZIL

** CUBA. 11670, March 13 at 0139, RHC Spanish is suptorted < 11700 < 11840 < 11760 in strength and modulation. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6165 // 6000, UT Wed March 13 at 0143, RHC English with Arnie Coro, must be `DXers Unlimited Mitweek Edition`, but undermodulated on the upper and suptorted unusable on the lower. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MALI. 17630 // 13685, March 12 at 1439, two JBA signals, matching for the two CRI English relay frequencies both active today. Nothing much else audible on 16m except JBA carriers on 17705 & 17615+ Saudis (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1230, March 12 at 1351 UT, WBBZ Ponca City on groundwave ID in passing as “Sunny 104.7“, so still branding as defunct FM format; I can also get 104.7 which IDs as “New 104-7, The Bull“, NOT // and playing different music. 1230 does run a legal WBBZ ID at 1401 UT.

Another check around 1830 UT finds the same situation, but also with “WBBZ Sunny 12-30“ IDs. I already dealt at length with this strange situation in my log almost 5 months ago, Oct 17, as also in DXLD 18-43 So one of our rare W-call legacy stations is still confused about identity (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 6130 // 7325, March 13 at 0104, RRI English here, rather than 7375 as I logged last night; and nothing now on 7375; too much storm noise to detect any jamming around either (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7295-AM, March 12 at 2215, `CQ 40 AM from K3IAM in New Mexico“. Gave callsign only once, during a fade and seemingly unfonetikaly, so not positive of it, but lookup entering K3IAM puts him in Arizona, close, maybe needs updating:

alias for: K3IAM
John C Smith
4697 W Cholla Bluff Dr
Marana, AZ 85658-4262 USA“

ARRL lookup gets no results for K3IAM, but agrees on AA7ST. He made one more CQ and then gave up. Sorry, no transmitter here or I might have answered. What exactly do we mean by “alias“, legally in this context? No mention of AA7ST (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

5130.47, UT Wed March 13 at 0053, WBCQ with something about pathways at Valley Forge. `Amateur Radio Roundtable` would not be starting until 0100, and *still* nothing shown on the schedule for 00-01 UT weekdays (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1480, March 13 at 0155, YL in Vietnamese more or less atop the jumble, into music; presumed KBXD Dallas. I ask again, is it partly-, or all-Vietnamese now? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4980-USB, March 12 at 0634, 2-way in Spanish, weak but nothing from Venezuela or Okeechobee to block it; and if this is a fixed band, then not an intruder. Mentions “Italia 28“ a couple of times, but doubt that`s a flight (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6903-USB, March 13 at 0054, secret alfanumeric message tuned in as “I say again: ZMCUZOEUGVHWIDPQ2AKJ6J3NIPGOWL — this message consists of 30 characters — this is C3Q — out“

Quite clearly enunciated, and double-checked for copy accuracy, but –Guess what, entered into yahoo and google searches, NO documents found. Could have been a pirate pretending to be military/security agency, but sounded quite serious and constrained (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9985.033, March 12 at 1510, Korean at S3-S5, i.e. Radio Free Asia, which QSL Dept. claims to be active from SAIPAN again (originally scheduled as neighboring Tinian), but Ivo Ivanov and I are not so sure. Anyhow it`s from a site with imprecise frequency accuracy (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 0415 UT March 13
