Glenn Hauser logs January 11-12, 2020

** ALGERIA. 531 kHz, Jan 12 at 0218 check, some audio from RTA Jil FM is separable from 530 stations; first noted at 0006 as the strongest of the TA carriers (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 223-MCW kHz, Jan 12 at 0727 UT, dash and YYW, 1000 watt NDB at Armstrong, Ontario (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [and non]. This from Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria explains why I was reporting Chinese on new 7665 as early as Dec 27 at 1540: “TAJIKISTAN, Frequency change of Radio Free Asia, January 10, 1500-1700 NF 7665 DB 250 kW / 110 deg to EaAs Chinese, ex 5820“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13630 & 13769 approx., Jan 12 at 1514, FM/AM spurblob out of 13700; also 13839, but no match on the minus side which would be circa 13561, rather our local ISM RF ID? noises. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, Sunday January 12 at 1518, RHC overmodulated and distorted here but OK on // 15230. Recheck at 1631, 15140 the same just concluding slightly overtime Esperanto // 11760. Recheckk at 1857, 15140 still OM/distorted during multi-lingual ID. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. 1300, Jan 12 at 0708, corrida song solo by OM dominates, from WSW, XEP Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua; 0711 “Radio Mexicana, Nuestras Noticias“ ID but NO news now! and another solo song by YL. This has a better signal than most Mexicans, even 800 XEROK. IRCA Log says “Fiesta Mexicana“ frequently announces 40 kW, but night power unknown. Had been and still is listed as 0.2 kW night in WRTH 2020, and agrees on the slogan I heard (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 1530, Jan 12 at 0718 UT, Spanish ID mentions Tulsa and FM. So Spanish at night isn`t necessarily KGBT. KXTD Wagoner OK is a 5 kW direxional DAYTIMER. NRC AM Log shows its FMs are on 104.9 and 100.3. Could this explain it? Should not; Paul Walker reported last Nov 7:

“OK, this has to be one of the oddest explanations I’ve ever read for requesting Special Temporary Authority. KXTD-AM 1530 Wagoner, OK is requesting permission to operate at lower than its licensed 5000 watts and to do it Non directional after a trampoline flying through the air during a tornado toppled one of their towers“ (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** PERU. 5980, Jan 11 at 2353, JBA carrier from R. Chaski vs heavier jamming than usual, so I can`t pinpoint the instant of autocutoff, but approx. 2353:55.5*. That would be 9.5 seconds earlier than 2354:05* on Jan 6, 5 days ago, right near the 1.9 second average slippage per noctem (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAO TOME E PRINCIPE. 13590.057, Jan 11 at 1942, discussion in American English, like CRI. No, only some VOA sites would be so far off frequency, Pinheira as listed for 19-20, 100 kW at 138 degrees (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960, Sat Jan 11 at 2354, VOT IS is still running after English — prospects good for the collision I have been predicting: 2356 starts inserting German IDs zweimal per minute. The Mighty KBC via Nauen, GERMANY is not quite on yet for its weekly broadcast also to N America. *2359, there it is, carrier on, atop TRT still going, making SAH of about 96/minute = 1.6 Hz. TRT sesqui-second-late ToH timesignal fires just as KBC starts modulating. Next few minutes I can`t be sure VOT still be on; but at 0028 UT Sun Jan 12 I bring up 5960 at UTwente SDR, to find TRT German way on top! of KBC, and still at 0051 toward end of extraneous German hour. So it`s a big mess inside Europe, and probably worse clash than here, eastward in N America. BTW on this occasion, not hearing any sign of off-frequency-minus East Turkistan, which could QRM KBC even without TRT. By choosing 5960 repeatedly of all possible frequencies, despite my warnings, KBC must deserve what it gets, tsk2 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 329 kHz, Jan 12 at 0226 UT, ND beacon PMV, which is 25 watts
from Plattsmouth, Nebraska,

365 kHz, Jan 12 at 0222 UT, ND beacon HQG, which is 25 watts from Hugoton, Kansas; I was tuned to 363-USB.

420 kHz, Jan 12 at 0219 UT, ND beacon PK, which is 25 watts from Olathe – Herbb, Kansas (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 980, Jan 12 at 0009 UT amid my JBA TA carrier bandscan, I notice an open carrier upon this TA/NA frequency, still so at 0014. DFing makes it NE/SW, and surely my nearest KMBZ Kansas City MO which normally dominates at night here, and of which there is no other sign. Main QRM is Spanish music NNW/SSE, making SAH of 204/minute = 3.4 Hz, very likely KQUE Houston market TX. Can it be that no one is paying attention at one of KC`s major(?) radio stations? Transmitter site is east of Stateline (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1090, what in the world is going on at KAAY Little Rock? Even more strangeness than heard last night: Jan 12 at 0655 UT, W&M discussing: pizza! But audio is continuously breaking up severely like internet buffering. Then mentions “see it“, a smokeless grill, so this is audio of a TV infomercial (taking a cue from co-channel XEAU Monterrey which does the same thing in Spanish at these hours). Sound is horrible. “Exclusive TV offer“ runs past ToH 0700 UT, 0702 ending disclaimer and NO ID, but from DF and usual dominance, I am sure it`s KAAY. At 0704 UT, still breaking up, starts `Judge Judy` TV show! (Yesterday it was NBC-TV Today Hoda Kotb hour.). 0724 UT recheck, still J.J. breaking up (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search Jan 12 at 0006-0013 UT: 531* strongest; 558(2), 576, 585, 639, 657, 693(2), 711, 729, 738, 774(2), 801, 819, 837, 855, 882, 891, 909, 936(2), 999, 1008, 1017, 1044, 1089, 1098, 1107(2), 1125(2), 1152, 1179, 1215(2), 1296, 1305(2), 1422, 1485, 1539 kHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1060, Jan 12 at 1445 UT, two notes looping over and over, accompanied by a constant bassier note. Loops WSW/ENE, suspected KIJN Farwell TX (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
