Glenn Hauser logs March 16-17, 2019

** CANADA. Our prime beacon reference for North America, http://dxinfocentre.com/ndb.htm now is headed by this note in red:

“Beacons are being decommissioned at such a rapid rate that many listed here may already be off the air. By 2026, most of these beacons will be gone with only a few left, __mainly in remote areas.“More about this in WORLD OF RADIO 1973 and DXLD 19-11

401, March 16 at 0627, dash and YPO, NDBeacon of 500 watts at Peawanuck, Ontario. I was tuned to 400.

366, March 16 at 0632, dash and YMW, NDB of 500 watts at Maniwaki, Quebec

355, March 16 at 0634, dash and YWP, NDB of 200 watts at Webequie, Ontario; a new one here

346, March 16 at 0636, dash and YXL, NDB of 500 watts at Sioux Lookout, Ontario

341, March 16 at 0648, dash and YYU, NDB of 500 watts at Kapuskasing, Ontario, mixed with but unblocked by local 25 watt EI in Enid (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, March 16 at 0620, RHC English this time is overmodulated and splattering out to 15 kHz above and below. 6165 & 6060 are OK; 6000 & 5040 are off. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13700, March 16 at 1348, RHC is S9+20 here, but no spurs detectable, shux, with WINB silent Saturday from DRM 13755-13760. Other RHC, 13780, is only S8-S9 and JBM at 1349. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15370, March 16 at 2029, RHC starting Arabic; 15140, March 16 at 2030, RHC starting Brazuguese. Unknown if both were in French during 2000 semihour today, like they were yesterday; then splitting. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9720, March 16 at 2039, just caught an open carrier and then off, probably a pre-check by RHC. My next check at 2157 finds S9+30 OC, 2159.5 IS and theme, opening French (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MALI. 13630 // 11640, March 16 at 2033, CRI English, YL narration about “John Smith in China“ part of a literary series, fair-poor (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 6185, March 16 at 2210, undermodulated Spanish? S5-S8, announcement and music; presumed XEPPM as always on much earlier than scheduled, but from when?? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925-USB, March 16 at 2201, Irish music at S9, VG, then announcement as “Whiskey in the Jerk“(?), 2204 DJ says he`s just testing in preparation for his St. Patrick`s Day broadcast tomorrow. No proper ID, but he is “The old Irishman, from the land of the leprechaun“ — an old man needs to go to bed, stayed up later than he should; a bit more music and off at 2206*. Many logs here as Irish Rose Radio, and it`s a jar the whiskey is in:

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-USB, March 17 at 0032, VP music at S3-S4, not 5 X 1390 KCRC-AM local as I was hearing earlier at 2202 on the other receiver. Many logs here say it was Moonlight Radio:

And Wolverine came on same frequency a few minutes later (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also UNIDENTIFIED 6919-LSB

** TURKEY. 12035.713, Sat March 16 at 1350, VOT English is S5-S7 with `Letterbox` but too poor to copy, also with weaker het from 12035.0 KSDA and stray Cuban pulse jamming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, Sat March 16 at 1805, no signal from KVOH if it`s on for weekly English broadcast (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6917-LSB, March 17 at 0034, mixture of musix, crowd sounds, song not in English, Brazilian talk, 0038 seems like QSOs. I`m rather sure of the language; could this be all the way from Brasil? But several logs here guess Spanish and others, no Portuguese:
