Glenn Hauser logs December 27-28, 2019

** ALGERIA [non]. 6105, Dec 27 at 0656, ME music with reverb, heavy splash from 6100 CUBA, but off at 0659, and 6100 off by 0700. It`s RTA via FRANCE, the 0600 hour supposed to be Qur`an, but evidently not entirely (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ANGUILLA. 6090, Fri Dec 27 at 0658, S9+20 of dead air, 0700 comes to life with music, Dead Gene Scott with hum. Convoluted “schedule“, we found on TUN/PMS website months ago and quoted, not the merely full registered span of 2200-1000 as in Aoki or HFCC;

EiBi now has it showing I tuned in before official sign on Fridays only: 0700-1000; also UT Tue/Wed/Fri 0100-0400, Wed 0400-0505, and Fri 0000-0100.

Also shows fraxured sked for day frequency 11775 within 1000-2200 possible block: 1000-1300 Wed, 1200-1600 Thu, 1600-2200 Sun, 1700-2000 Sat.

Note: WRTH 2020, ANGUILLA refers us to USA: University Network for sked, mixed in with WWCR — but the times are wrong, for 11775 five hours later than above! Must have been confused, misconverting EST. But the WWCR times could be correct, not breaking the day 13845/night 5935 barrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [and non]. 6075, Dec 27 at 1612, 2.5 hours after sunrise here, two stations mixing, music and Chinese. Aoki shows one of countless spots for RTI vs CNR1 jamming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 7665, Dec 27 at 1540, Chinese, S7-S9 with flutter. Strikes me as something new, and indeed no listings in latest Aoki, EiBi or of course HFCC. Most likely a CNR1 jammer against a new Sound of Hope frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13560, 13630, 13770, and weaker 13840 approx., Dec 27 at 1510, today`s spurblobs from 13700 RHC at 70 kHz intervals, the lower one clashing with constant local part 15 RF ID or ISM noises; wonder if Cuba could cause them malfunxion? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 88.0v, Dec 27 at 1440 and later, big carrier cuts on and off irregularly, blotting out bits of 88.1 KWOU we are trying to listen to. Surely it`s that damn Family Radio translator in Enid, K202BY supposed to be on 88.3 but no real transmissions for months, a legacy of Harold Camping (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 1521.0, Dec 27 at 2226, tell-tale 1-kHz het upon 1520 KOKC, from the 2 megawatts in Duba. I keep listening carefully for its expected cutoff around 2230-2231. Not heard after 2230:54, altho at first seemed off some 20 seconds earlier, but hard to tell with musiQRM from KOKC commercial, and/or some fading. Het was the same pitch as from 891 upon 890 KTLR/WLS. So this time it is certainly not the nearby 1520.7 station (Glenn Hauser, OK,, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 5980, Dec 27 at 2221, VOT in Turkish is still on beyond scheduled 2200*, S8 to S9+10; off at 2243 check. Something`s always wrong at Emirler. This is the one aimed USward and heard as early as 1900. 5960 English is successful from 2300 today (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7615-USB, Fri Dec 27 at 1541, Civil Air Patrol net, fonetik maybe encrypted message slowly read out by Red Bear 4, S9+20; much weaker contact reads it back, and Red Bear 4 makes a correxion. Autobeep at end of each transmission saving them from having to utter over, or talkover if overlooked. Other one ID as Triblade 327, out. I think Triblade is the net callsign. A CAP tactical call roster shows several Reds, but no Bears, so maybe I misheard: Dragon NJ, Fire IN, Fox IL, Robin MI, Rock AZ, Cloud NE (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2014 monitoring: confirmed first USSW broadcast, Friday December 27 from about 2300:10 vs Cuban jamming against us on WRMI 9955. This week the jamming does not gradually diminish to nothing but continues the entire semihour; during much of it, WOR is atop and readable, but WRMI fades at 2318, and out at 2323, back up at 2326.

Distracted by WBCQ and other programming, I miss checking my own trimulcast, 0130 UT Sat on WRMIs 5050, 5810 and 7780. Did anyone hear them? Also need to confirm whether Sat 1300 on 15770 be canceled, as Ivo has reported, even if it takes waking up and bringing up UTwente.

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:

** U S A. 7490.08v, Fri Dec 27 at 2245 caught WBCQ, last quarter of `Behaviour Night` with “Glowworm“ playing first; poor S9-S6.

UT Sat Dec 28 from 0100, I`m on 7490 webcast instead despite distortion/overmodulation problem on Winamp which has been going on since last weekend; at least it is here? Is it that way for others? `Allan and Angela Worldwide,` mostly ranting about Free Speech. No significant news concerning S-S or programming. At 0151 says simulcasting on 7490 and 5130, so I check SW for those at 0157: 7490 is JBA; 5130 S9 but already cut to the IS & ID loop before AAAWWW is finished, as John Carver has been noting for weeks. Why do they do that? Over to John for a lot more detail:

“Tonight’s show started on time on a very poor 7490. No signal on 5130 as of yet. Opening talk about the upcoming new year and how lucky Allan is to have Angela. Allan stated that the superstation was working just fine and he was proud of the work his crew was doing up there to keep things running smoothly. Allan also says he doesn’t want to get political this evening, but he questions whether or not the economy is doing as well as Washington says it is, and he also wonders if the unemployment rate is as low as they say it is, as it doesn’t seem like that to him. Angela forcefully argues that the economy is doing really well and the unemployment rate is down. She posits that the new people working are working for lower wages so seem to be struggling.

While maintaining that he still backs Trump Allan questions our relationships with North Korea and Russia implying that they are not to be trusted. He also takes a shot at Trump’s proposed space force as he believes it will just lead to more unwinnable wars. He also takes exception to the size of the country’s defense budget.

The discussion quickly changes to an overview of the regulations governing OTA radio and TV programs as opposed to the regulations of cable, satellite and private radio and TV. Allan maintains that there should just be one set of regulations for all and that there should be no censorship. Phone call at 0139 concerning censorship. The regulations concerning social media were also mentioned.

Phone call at 0149 from Canada concerning the superstaion and also questioning the alleged ten second delay the caller was hearing during his phone call. Allan explained that it was the lag that sending the signal to the station over the internet caused {and emphasizes that his stations never insert delays for censorship — gh}.

He then announced that they were broadcasting on 7490 and 5130 this evening and a quick check confirmed that 5130 was finally working. I stayed on 5130 as the signal was better. The talk then immediately turned to a discussion of snakes, of all things. Reading of the Free Radio Weekly began at 0154 and immediately the nonstop station IDs for the last six minutes of the hour started on 5130 so I moved back to 7490. Phone call at 0157 from Pirate Joe stating that 5130 was running nonstop station IDs. Closing prayer at 0159 interrupted by the start of the next program. John, Mid-North Indiana“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 620, Dec 27 at 1415 UT, 8:15 timecheck and Fond du Lac ad, other Wisconsin references. No doubt WTMJ Milwaukee, U4 50/10 kW one semihour after sunrise here. Nice to hear without really trying, something besides KTAR AZ sports or the predominant KTNO TX gospel huxtering in Spanish. E-W longwire helps, minimising KTNO.

O, both day and night patterns are supposed to shoot tight slightly east of north, virtually nothing to south or side direxions. Something must be wrong there, which explains why I seldom hear it. In fact, a quick search of my logs does not find WTMJ in the past sesquidecade! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 820, Dec 27 at 1423 UT right into ID for “WCPT, 820, Chicago`s Progressive Talk“, atop WBAP TX. Lucky city to have one progressive station among all the regressive outlets! Like WBAP, flagship of `Red Eye Radio`. E-W longwire helps to minimise WBAP to the south. Is U2, 5.8/1.5 kW, so day pattern N-D; CoL Willow Springs which is just south of the I-55/294 junxion, SW of The Loop, but that does not mean its transmitter site has to be there. WAIT, is that its correct callsign? I guess so, matching the slogan. Here still exist on the radio, Stephanie Miller, Thom Hartmann, Amy Goodman, et al. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 870, Dec 27 at 1425 UT, report on Indian affairs from KUER in Utah — it`s NPR Morning Edition, soon matched to KWOU and to KOSU delayed by IBOC. Hearing any public radio on AM is extremely rare here altho I did have WSUI 910 IA the other morning, but what`s on 870? 1430 UT ID for “105.1 and 870 AM, WKAR News Talk“. Of course, East Lansing MI, but have I ever heard it before? Steady past 1440 with no sign of XETAR, WWL, KFJZ or any other 870. WKAR is 10 kW direxional daytimer, but not very, emphasizing northwest but no sharp nulls. Official Dec and Jan sunrise is 1300 UT. I had this before on the morning of Oct 29, 2015, at first as unID.

And you guessed it, 105.1 FM is a puny translator! Yet top billing. Kenneth Vito Zichi in Williamston has complained in MARE that he can only get them on AM which they are now downplaying. (Of course there is also a full-power 85/85 kW on 90.5, WKAR-FM with different format, classical/jazz/news) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7475, Dec 27 at 1544, S9+10 open carrier, vs splatter from 7490 WWCR; also with JBA clix once a second. This has been around for some time, day or night. Rather like 10550 where the clix are louder. What? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15151.5-USB, Dec 27 at 1514, 2-way in Spanish, with engine noise, INTRUDERS. This is a longtime channel for such, I first reported on Oct 23, 2006; also in 2010, 2011, 2012; and in November 2019. Do DEA and USFWS know of it? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
