Glenn Hauser logs November 9-10, 2019

** CUBA. 9630-9650, Nov 9 at 2301, RHC ID amid its 22-24 UT Spanish newsmagazine, buzzfield over this range surrounding and out of 9640. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6165, Nov 10 at 0733, only RHC left, Spanish song but presumably English service; so what will become of Esperanto now rescheduled to 0800 UT Sundays on one 49mb frequency? Unfortunately, I am still awake at 0801, when 6165 and all others are off. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

However, wide-awake in Germany, Wolfgang Bueschel also monitored: “Something’s always wrong at RHC, on Sunday Nov 10th. In 0750-0800 UT slot only a single RHC English transmission noted on 6165even, not 6000 6060, nor 6100 kHz outlet on air – 0750 UT S=9+10dB in remote SDR at Edmonton, Alb-CAN. 6165 kHz was on duty til 0800:10 final piano music theme, 0800:56 UT Bauta TX OFF switch.

When traced the 49 mb then, noted a short appearance on air, and an empty carrier on 6100even little stronger S=9+20dB – than 6165, seemingly RHC Bauta as empty carrier on air at single minute duration, the technician at Bauta were real 0801:42 to 0802.43 ON AIR on 6100 kHz in 49 mb positively; BOT NOT ON AIR RHC Bauta in Esperanto special – nothing today on a single fq 6100 kHz“

Note: gh has removed redundant “kHz“ after every frequency and “UT“ after every time, just as wb inserts them into my reports to make them explicit yet redundant (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRELAND. 4651-USB, Nov 10 at 0718, Shanwick Radio with notice to some flight about severe turbulence; some CODAR swish QRM. This is a long-standing joint venture with Prestwick AP, Scotland near Glasgow, the one scandalized by connexions with Trump`s failing golf course. EiBi shows the transmitter site is Shannon (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 11725, Nov 10 at 0740, RNZI the SSOB and virtually the OSOB during Sunday evening classic rock show, playing `Nights in White Satin` by Moody Blues, with `I Love You“ refrain over and over, a great tune keeping me awake a little longer; DJ announcement, and 0745, I don`t know, another love-song from `J.C. Super-Star` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6933-USB, Sunday Nov 10 at 1414, finally a pirate outside early evening prime-time. Hard rock music with screams at S7-S8. 1418 DJ ID as “Energy Radio, ERG“, offers QSL cards; fragment of song with intelligible lyric, “You`re gonna die“; 1419 a bit of the screamsong again and cutoff 1420*. More detailed logs here: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,60116.0.html and on same board recently more logs of it on 6950, 6790, even 9417, Please QSL (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 930, Nov 10 at 1329 UT, WKY, OKC, with double audio! Closing pubaffs show `Sunday Morning Magazine` about elexions in OK, when to register for primary, etc.; and ID for WWLS 98.1 The Sports Animal which is its normal programming source. No one paying attention at station to suppress TSA at least during this breakaway! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 13, Nov 10 at 0128 UT, closing credits of excellent OETA program `Gallery` flash “Copywrite XXXX“, too quick to catch the year let alone tape or photo it, but I am sure of how the Oklahoma *Educational* TV Authority spelt Copyright. N.B., Sagebrush Bob! There will be plenty more chances to see it about 27-28 minutes after these Central start times = UT minus 6; and maybe even on demand:

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 5850, Nov 10 at 0722, Brother Scare via WRMI remarking that He is “confined to the house“, but is allowed to talk on the radio and is wearing a wireless mike so He can walk around. Not the first time I have run across this. So is He “confined“ as in house-arrest, maybe with an ankle monitor to keep Him away from the girls? Or confined due to disability? Allan Weiner must know, having visited Him recently. There has got to be a public document about His legal status somewhere, if anyone could uncover it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U K [non]. 6150, Nov 9 at 2241, S4-S8 news magazine in American English, mentions Bloomberg, dangers of robots taking over jobs even in the Press, 2244 another topic; 2254 about the Theremin. What`s this, CRI? Before hourtop, Marco Werman closing `The World` joint produxion of WBUR, PRI, and BBCWS, and indeed this is BBCWS on a previously unknown transmission, from where? Unusual to get a readable signal from them since they blew away their intentional North American SW audience years ago. HFCC shows it is via USAGM Tinang, PHILIPPINES! I would never have guessed this were the site. 250 kW at 200 degrees away from here for CIRAF 51W and 54, i.e. Indonesia and Malaysia, at 2200-2300 only. Something new? There is one more English hour at 2300-2400 on 11825 and three other Tinang relays in Burmese, Korean.

We get `The World` on KOSU M-F at 20-21 UT; also heard it on CBW 990 in the 06-07 hour. I once tried to convince WRMI to pick it up in penance for all crap from Walterboro paying the bills. But we`ll have to do with BBCWS.

When all is it scheduled there? I`ve avoided trying to pin down any programming on BBCWS since there have been so many different SW streams, zero for us. But I try, for Monday Nov 11 — no such program in the 22-23 hour or anywhen by that title! The specific time I heard it, does lead to `Boston Calling` with the robot topic for Nov 9, so that`s how it`s repackaged on BBCWS: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/w3csy5vb. Clearly it`s only once a week for 27 minutes at 2232 UT Saturdays, one earlier airing at 0432, and repeated at 0432 UT Sunday. Despite its original title, BBCWS diminishes it as an American POV de Boston.

But there are a lot of clips, podcasts, a look at Marco and his bio: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p00y7fqz So the entire hour 5X a week would still be needed via WRMI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7457-USB, Nov 10 at 1427, AF MARS net, two stations saying “no traffic; net is now free; out“. Does free mean open for random QSOs, or finished? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 9619.9 approx., Nov 9 at 2256, het with weaker 9620.0, one at least in Chinese; 2300 timesignal and one goes off, the other by 2301*. VOA Chinese via Tinang, PHILIPPINES scheduled in the 22 hour only, so the CNR1 jammer presumably a bit off-frequency to boot (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7545, Nov 10 at 1424, non-Standard Chinese translating brief items in English mentioning Baltic States, Gorbachov, atop weaker audio, i.e. VOA Cantonese via Tinang, PHILIPPINES and jammed at 1300-1500 (Glenn Hauser, OK,, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2007 monitoring: confirmed UT Sunday November 11 at 0426, 11 minutes into on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, so started circa nominal 0415. Readable but marred by local high noise level between 1.7 and 2.4 MHz, and another narrow peak at 2.68 MHz, but fortunately no problem higher. (I dread the Holiday Season with Xmas lighting all over, altho 2 or 3 neighbors run Xmassy lighting yearound.) Next:

** U S A. 5950, Nov 10 at 0727, SMTV via WRMI, and 4 seconds later the same SMTV via WRMI, i.e. double audio feed, one of them slightly softer than the other, ruining their own programming, partly in English.

15770, Nov 10 at 1431 & 1548 chex, SMTV now on this WRMI, *still* with double audio. Clearly nohuman at SMTV HQ nor WRMI is paying attention to what is going out, so why should we? I wonder how this happen, Bob? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3215, Nov 9 at 2312, WWRB is already on this early for Saturday evening, S9+20 and OK modulation! with what else, a gospel huxter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sunday Nov 10, I`ve had WTWW-2 on a receiver in the background for an hour or more of hamtalk, when finally at 0119 I first detect some organ music, so `Theater Organ in the Ozarx` has started after 7 pm local, not 8 pm as on the website. I bring up $tereo webcast of familiar tunes, finally `White Xmas`, abruptly ending at 0143, no show outro, cut to ID and immediately back to rock music, `The Wanderer`, which would have been neat to hear on the organ too (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 720, Nov 10 at 1335 UT, TexMexmx, break for super-hype voice actor to proclaim, “— 104.1 y 720 AM, la estación de la raza“. Null/separable from WGN, but soon outfading, is KSAH Universal City (San Antonio) TX. NRC AM Log says the slogan is “Norteña 104.1“ which is not a mere translator (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1480, Sunday Nov 10 at 1339 UT, surprised to hear the tones of Jim Bohannon in the light of day, guest author who is a “Bible-believing Christian“. This is certainly my semi-local KQAM Wichita KS, atop remnant of Vietnamese KNGO The Metroplex making a slow SAH. But KQAM is not a JIMBO affiliate per: http://www.jimbohannonshow.com/station-finder/ rather 3 other 1480s all at normal nighttimes or later repeats pre-sunrise. But what do they know? Jimbo is among the Big Talkers at: http://stecklinecommunications.com/kqam/ Sundays at 12-14 UT; and weeknights live at 03-06 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1550, Nov 10 at 1352 UT, “Cape Radio 100.3 News-Talk“, 1359 local PSAs for Cape Girardeau, caperadionews.com; rapid legal ID I think fits in a 1550 mention, 1400 Fox “news“. Is KAPE now on 5 kW direxional day power. Lucky MO has two others 1550s. From ENE, I`m really trying to null it and hear wanted KMAD, Madill on the south side of OK, often silent but lately reported active (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Date for this omitted by mistake: it was November 4: TA conditions must be VG, as earlier Mark Connelly in MA reported Syria “inbooming“ (where did he get that?) on 783 kHz. Too late for that now, but at 0550-0600 I decide to perform a JBA MW carrier search on the R-75 with E/W longwire, and find plenty of them: 531, 549, 558(2), 567, 585(2), 595.9, 621, 639, 684, 693(2), 711, 729, 738, 747, 756, 774(2: See SPAIN), 801, 837, 882, 909, 936(2), 954, 963 (both sides of my 960 local), 999, 1053, 1062, 1089, 1125(2), 1134, 1215, 1305, 1566 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1110, Nov 10 at 0753 UT, KFAB Omaha in C2CAM normally owns this clear channel at night, but now has some musical QRM with SAH, hard to DF with KFAB nulled. Of course, the only other 50 kW at night 1110 station is WBT Charlotte NC, but it`s news/talk too; with deep nulls toward each other. Suspect it`s one of the numerous daytimers in between running at night. Or maybe KRDC Pasadena CA, all 20 kW supposedly WSW into the Pacific but C&W/Disney format (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6780-CW, Nov 10 at 1410, beeps like timesignals exactly one second apart, except a prolonged one every 23 seconds, pause and resuming 4 seconds later, over and over; not matching any real timesignal. Very strange (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7850-USB, Nov 10 at 1422, VP 2-way in Spanish. CHU better hurry up and reclaim its frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report despatched at 1914 UT November 10
