** CUBA. 6100, July 9 at 0606, RHC English with VG modulation, and signal S9+20; while only // left, 6165, is incomparably worse, S8-S3 and undermodulated, unreadable. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NIGERIA. 7254.9, July 9 at 0602, VON is back here and big S9+10/20 in Hausa. Wolfgang Bueschel says this rotatable antenna is stuck aimed toward North America, lucky us.
11769.9, July 9 at 2041, JBA carrier, signature off-frequency of VON, presumably running until about 2100 (Glenn Hauser, OK,, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. RF 13-2, July 9 at 1616 UT, PBS World via KETA, during Christiane Amanpour & Co., blasting interruption for EAS test “as required“, but before program audio resumes, we hear a minute of a horribly modulated commercial for Capital One! The system is relaying some station which is *not* doing the test, or maybe already finished it (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9330.00, I have left a receiver on here most of the day July 8, the target date for World`s Last Chance to take over WBCQ-6, but nothing heard except occasional traces of Brother Scare on the old 9330.1v transmitter.
Finally #6 cuts on abruptly at *2322 with AW`s quick canned ID, and into praise? music in Spanish; more music with ID at 2335. Is this WLC yet? Not quite.
WLC just started at 0000 UT July 9, British accents, not Egyptian.
It should not be necessary to cut the transmitter while the antenna is being rotated (unlike other antenna switching), but there was a break at 0355:20 to 0356:55 during their music span.
It`s pretty clearly not multilingual changing every hour as originally planned and on the WLC website; yet, another group just posted that schedule as if it were correct.
So far since 0000 it`s all been English, right? I did hear a minute or two of openings and wonder if they are playing the same English hour over and over? I have paid very little attention to their nonsense, but they want to be sure we are prepared, for “the end is near“! They also make a big deal of the “correct“ names for their god and offspring.
Observer has this which must have been about WLC, but did anyone ever hear 9330 in Arabic any time in June? Maybe now we will find them going from English to Arabic at 0800 and all the way to 2300? This came out of HFCC.
“WBCQ-6 The Planet, Monticello, TEST in June 2019
0300-0700 on 9330 BCQ 500 kW / 280 deg to WNAm English
0700-0800 on 9330 BCQ 500 kW / 047 deg to WeEu English
0800-1500 on 9330 BCQ 500 kW / 060 deg to N/ME Arabic
1500-2300 on 9330 BCQ 500 kW / 090 deg to NoAf Arabic
2300-0300 on 9330 BCQ 500 kW / 255 deg to MEXI English“
Also, is 7490 now running 24 hours with BS at “all unsold time“ as AW promised? I really meant “all-night“ except for the WWCR hours. I would not expect any change there. Anyhow, 7490 WBCQ was not on late at night with BS or anything, as of 0600, nor during the daytime when it`s JBA if at all.
Assuming now 9330.00 be always 500 kW as WLC requires, signal weakens greatly — super-power cannot overcome propagation! By 0600 July 9, I can tell it`s still 9300.00 but JBA! At 0625 up a little at S1-S5 to tell it`s WLC English.
Probably did switch to Arabic at 0800; my next check at 1232 finds it now in Arabic, S8-S3, nowhere near the signal we used to get during tests aimed thisaway, so the rotating direxional antenna must be very effective, i.e. not wasting signal off the back. After 1440 and various daytime chex, it remains VP here in Arabic; at 2034, rating only S3-S5, while nearest neighbor SW station 9265 WINB is slightly better S4-S6, and no comparison to WWCR blasting on 9350 and 9980. Maybe WBCQ-6 will blast again itself changing back to English thisaway at 2300?
Meanwhile, Kai Ludwig in the WOR iog has found more interesting background about World`s Last Chance and its founder:
“It appears that Galal Doss remained in Egypt not so completely unnoticed as elsewhere:
And he not just calls the pope an antichrist, in 2005 he made a really cute prophecy:
Someone with a bit more time to spend could also check if a first impression is correct: That Doss could be a bad Antisemite. By the way, it seems that Doss is a mere three years younger than Stair. Kai Ludwig“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 7570, July 9 at 2043, JBA carrier vs S9 local line noise level, and no signals on 7730 or 7780. Must be WRMI: yes, websked revised to show it with APS Radio, 14-23 UT Tuesday and Thursday only! How odd. Aimed right at us 315 degrees, but useless in summer daytime. Maybe makes it to Mississippi? 9455 is also on with VP signal and that too is sked as APS, in this case M-F 2000-2200 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5830 & 5935, July 9 at 0608, both Nashvillians WTWW and WWCR are inaudible, so both off the air? How about lower? 4840 WWCR is still S9+20/30 with BS and so is // 3215. Maybe a very sharp MUF cutoff around 5 MHz? (Glenn Hauser, OK, D LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. 9470, July 9 at 1355, WEWN into “Salve Regina“ with heavy CCI in Chinese, soon uncovered completely as WEWN is finished with English until the afternoon. CNR1 jamming/RTI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1210, July 9 at 0559 UT, tune in just in time to hear ToH break, from “Reality Radio“ to multi-AM/FM station ID including WJNL and mention of Mackinaw City, as the 50 kW daytimer in Kingsley MI continues its all-night cheating since first heard here June 24. At first dominant, must have been during a KGYN fade which soon comes back up during sportstalk (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 9379.577, July 9 at 1235, open carrier fading S4-S2, so not a local device. Probably the same one Rick Barton, AZ reported as 9380, July 1 at 0815-0915 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 2212 UT July 9
