Glenn Hauser logs August 28-29, 2016


** EGYPT. 9315.0, Aug 29 at 0111, S9 R. Cairo amazingly is JBM without any motorboating or spurs! 9964.90, Aug 29 at 0117, S9+10 R. Cairo is JBM with music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 7570, UT Mon Aug 29 from 0100 on WRMI 7570, PCJ Radio International`s `From the Archives of Radio Netherlands, pt 2` starts as scheduled, preëmpting Brother Scare, VG across North America. First docu item dates back to 1950, interviewing Dutch allied soldiers about to go to war in Korea. At 0113, `The Challenge`, from 1996, Eric Beauchemin docu about poverty. 0144, `Earthbeat` interviews Keith in Taiwan about how a crematory there is using the 1000-degree heat all day from its busy ovens to generate electricity, dissatisfying some traditional Taiwanese, tho the corpses being burnt up aren`t directly involved. On to commercials and some music before hourtop, but instead of a second hour of this, WRMI cuts back to Brother Scare at 0200 UT. So now I can watch BrainDead on CBS-TV without recording something (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 105.1, UT Monday August 29 at 0055 UT on KOSB 105.1, Perry, yes, Triple Play Sports Radio is still doing an oldies music show Sunday evenings, about to wrap up 2-hour program, and presumably also on 1020 KOKP Perry, 1580 KOKB Blackwell (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, Aug 29 at 0106, JBA carrier from R. Chaski until autocutoff at 0105:40.5*, which is 19.5 second later than last timing one trinite ago, Aug 26 until 0105:21*, still averaging 6.5 seconds later per 24 hours (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UGANDA [non]. 15240-, Sunday August 28 at 1611, R. Munansi via WWRB is already in continuous Luganda(?) lo-fi talk, no nice African music today. Listening on the PL-880 portable with whip antenna only, it is adequate at first, but 1623 fades out completely, 1629 up a bit, 1632 better briefly. Really too close to WWRB for solid F2 daytime reception, but some unreliable sporadic E in between can improve it; of no use to Ugandans (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1840 monitoring: confirmed Sunday August 28 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9329.957v-CUSB, fair. Also confirmed UT Monday Aug 29 at 0030 on WRMI, 7730, S9+20. Also confirmed UT Monday Aug 29 from 0301 on Area 51 webcast, and until 0330:30 on WBCQ 5129.860-AM, S9+20. Also confirmed UT Monday Aug 29 at 0330 on WRMI, 9955, S9+10 over pulse jamming: tnx a lot, Arnie! Next:
Mon 2330   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW

Wed 2330   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12105, Aug 29 at 0119, WTWW-3 must be source of JBA carrier, unknown if modulated or not, while 9475, WTWW-1 is still inbooming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1030, Aug 29 at 0132 UT, dominant signal plugs a Sept 13 event at the Botanical Garden of the Ozarx, but never says where it is. We`re supposed to know this has to be Fayetteville AR, or rather CoL Farmington`s KFAY, 6/1 kW U4. Maybe still on day power? Official FCC sunset in August is 0115 UT (September: 0030 UT). Major lobe both day and night goes southwest, but maybe enough to the west on day pattern. S9+20 before it fades; next PSA from CDC about mosquitoes (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Glenn Hauser logs August 27-28, 2016


** GUINEA. 9650, Aug 27 at 2337, very poor S6 signal and seems undermodulated, in French? presumed still R. Guinée, until carrier cut about 2401:20*. I`ve yet to hear it signing on as early as 0600 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MALAYSIA. Correxion: wrong date was on this log. Should be Aug 25, not Aug 24, fixed:

6050.003 to 6050.008, Aug 25 at 1247, two separate measurements of S3-S5 signal here presumed to be Asyik FM. Can`t get it up to 6050.011 where Wolfy put it the other day. Margin of error, or varies slightly? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1157-1170-1183, Aug 27 at 1859 UT, I notice the IBOC from 50/50 kW KFAQ Tulsa is OFF! Come to think of it, may have been off for a while. Used to be a fight at night with KSL 1147-1160-1173 IBOC. Who knows if this be permanent or temporary; new NRC AM Log, deadline early August, still shows KFAQ as ``I``. This reference last updated 27 July 2016: 
says ``Reported off Feb 2011, but on again as of Oct 2014`` (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 1580, Aug 28 at 0006 UT, KOKB Blackwell must be off. No big signal as there should be this long before sunset, but a mix of weakies, including one with sports talk, but not // 1020 KOKP or 105.1 KOSB. Also in the pileup a musical station. We should check whether Triple Play Sports radio resume a musical sidetrack Sunday at 2300 UT-0100 UT Monday (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 91.7, Sat Aug 27 at 1841 UT on caradio, I find dead air from KOSU, which continues past hourtop until 1905 UT finally reviving for last minute of NPR news and into `The Dinner Party`. But some or all of the excellent 1 pm CT Sat program `RadioLab` was withheld from KOSU listeners! Unknown whether still on KOSN, KOSR, translators, or HD channels. This happens all too frequently at KOSU, over-relying on fallible automation. It`s too much to ask for a genuine human operator to be overhearing it 24/7, preferably in the studio for quick axion rather than remotely (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UGANDA [non]. 15240, Sat Aug 27 circa 1750, signal detected here on R-75, presumed WWRB with Radio Munansi, but in next hour on caradio, despite a memory frequency, no hits, so must be quite weak. What about Sunday 1600-1900? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1840 monitoring: confirmed Sat Aug 27 at 2230 on WBCQ, 9330.049v-CUSB, poor. Also confirmed UT Sunday Aug 28 at 0327 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, good S9+20 but mixing with storm noise level, about 4 minutes into show so started circa 0324 (minus the theme opening nixed). Next:
Sun 2330   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Mon 0030   WRMI 7730 to WNW
Mon 0300v  WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW

Wed 2100   WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Wed 2330   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330-CUSB, Sat Aug 27 at 2344, WBCQ with an `Allan Weiner Worldwide` playback I recognize from a few weeks ago as he is talking about being into photography as a child, developing his 127 film, etc. This repeat is now officially on the schedule at
But the Sat 23-24 hour on 9330 was originally some paid program, forget what, but didn`t last long, accounting for earlying the daily WOR playbacks from 2330 to 2230 on Saturdays only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 13695, Aug 27 at 1757 on BST-1 caradio, memory scan stops on some steel band music, and Morse code frequency ID says 13695, so WRMI. But where`s Brother Scare who is supposed to be on here all day until 2100? Not until 1800 sharp (without any ID), does this switch to the Overcomer theme (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12105, Aug 27 at 2353 check, WTWW-3 is OFF; 9475 WTWW-1 is still on, and WTWW-2 is not on either frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9899-9922, Aug 27 at 2338, approx. range of pulsing, seems like OTH radar rather than usual ute in this area; peaks circa 9913 at S2 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Glenn Hauser logs August 25-26-27, 2016


** EGYPT. 9290-9300-9306-9312, Aug 27 at 0257, approx. range of motorboating spurs from 9315.0 R. Cairo transmitter, which is S7 , but the spurs are more like S1, the peak being at 9306, but constantly shifting. This time there is nothing on the hi side of 9315. Some poor SSB station is trying to communicate amid this mess on 9300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9420, Aug 27 at 0256, S8 dead air from VOG, maybe pausing before re-sign-on for 0300 morning broadcast? Not on 9935. Did not get around to rechecking after 0300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7254.923, Aug 27 at 0557, VON is back on today, but just barely audible drumming (talking drums? What are they saying?) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 7489.964 approx., Thu Aug 25 at 2333, WBCQ with `Broad Spectrum Radio`. James Branum had tipped us that this week he would be airing one of his sporadic KG5JST DX Radio Reports:

``Hi Glenn, Passing this on...

15 minute program, with extended written notes online - Airing tonight on WBCQ at 2330 UT [Aug 25, 7490] and in Oklahoma on KTLR 890 am at 11 am CDT/1600 UT [Friday Aug 26].

Also a few BSR programming notes for September and onward:

KTLR - 15 minute Shalom in OKC show (which is magazine format) on Fridays 11-11 am [sic] CDT, then 30 minutes Mennonite radio followed by 30 minutes BSR Magazine on Sundays 8-9 am CDT (1300-1400 UT) [890]

WBCQ - Most weeks will be 30 minute BSR Magazine show at 2330 UT Thursdays [7490]

WINB - Most weeks will be 30 minute Mennonite Radio 0330 UT on Saturdays. [not this week: see my WINB log][9265]

Channel 292 - Right now it is 30 minute BSR Magazine show/30 minute Mennonite Radio, airing at several time slots, but this will probably change soon as I have some longer length programs that are needing to be aired. Times may change soon. [6070, Germany]

Unique Radio 3210 - Starting in September it will be likely be 30 minutes BSR Magazine, 30 Minutes Mennonite Radio, and 2 hours of either music and/or longer-length shows [NSW 3210]

Sonador Radio - 24/7 Micro/Part 15 AM station will start in September airing to Sonador neighborhood of far west Northwest OKC. It possibly will be streaming online as well if I can work out cost of music licensing. The plan is to air a mix of old BSR Programs, music and other content. On Sonador Radio, I haven't picked a frequency yet, as I need to check day and night for ideal frequencies. I'll let you know in the next few days what I end up with. James

Wearer of many hats . . .``

Sonador is in ZIP 73013, really Edmond; some part of it axually in OKC, it seems, ZIP 73012.

On 7490 from 2330 Thu Aug 25, he was going thru his DX logs, mostly but not exclusively SW, as in the script. Some other topic about 2345 so I thought that was over, but before 2400 he was reading some more logs (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15120, Fri Aug 26 at 1650, VOA in Luso-Portuguese for weekly 1630 call-in about ANGOLA. 15120 is Greenville, 250 kW, 94 degrees, same parameters as for 2130-2200 M-F Bambara on 15120. Modulation rather distorted and splattering, S9+20 to 30, off at 1700*, why? HFCC shows there is another half-hour of this on Fridays only via GB on 17700. Also the first semihour via VATICAN, violating Separation of Church & State, on 17655. Also on 13630 via SAO TOME on Fri only, but 13630 continues daily 1700-1800 in Portuguese via BOTSWANA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7489.95, UT Sat Aug 27 at 0035, WBCQ with `Allan Weiner Worldwide` in progress about a new campaign to raise $500,000 in the next 6 months with 7 goals, going into quite a bit of detail including ``more Glenn Hauser`` mentioned a couple of times (hmmm), and fortunately now summarized on the website wbcq.com – make that eight:

``WBCQ $500,000 fund drive

WBCQ needs to raise $500,000 to keep going to provide the world`s only truly free speech radio service. Our goals for the funding are:

1. Repair, replace, and upgrade our transmitting equipment
2. Upgrade all our antenna systems for higher power
3. Upgrade studios and computer systems
4. Finish our backup generator system
5. Create a fund to pay for more free speech alternative programming
6. Providing airtime for persons who cannot afford to purchase airtime
7. Create a free radio news service for true, unbiased news for the world
8. Improve the website, streaming, and video services

Much more needs to be done. Shortwave radio is the only true worldwide open voice with no infrastructure required.

Fees for airtime do not cover operation costs at present. We need your help through donations to progress further, survive into the future, and get more voices on the air. Please contribute whatever you can. Thank you and God bless, Allan H. Weiner``

Said was also on 5130 and 3250 --- nothing audible here around 3250, but 5129.87 or so detectable. Later on thru 0100 hourtop, girlfriend Pam ukuleled and sang some songs live (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sat Aug 27 at 0313, WTWW-3 is on with rock music at S9+30, plus the inevitable JBA spur carriers on 5072.1 and 5097.9. You never know when Ted will decide to turn on the transmitter and play DJ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9605, Aug 27 at 0254 check, WHRI is still on here with gospel-huxtering in English, rather than on 7315 where Angel 1 is supposed to be after the 01-02 Korea relay, per WHRI`s own schedule. After 0300 same transmitter does come up on 6175 for Vietnam relays, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** U S A. 9265, UT Sat Aug 27 at 0330, WINB ID and into a rock music show, only S8 and not enough to overcome noise level. This is when Broad Spectrum Radio was supposed to appear according to James Branum (see OKLAHOMA [and non]). WINB online schedule is relatively recently updated, Aug 14, but still out of date. Instead shows Mennonite Radio from BSR on Saturday nights = UT Sunday at 0230 (and BTW, DigiDX UT Sat at 0230). Furthermore, still shows Unique Radio from Aussie Tim at 0300 UT Friday, rather than 1100 UT Saturday, a change Tim has already publicized, starting today, but I snoozed as usual that early. Also shows The Overcomer at 17-19 UT Mon/Tue/Wed only, why? Not on until *1900 Thu & Fri with other programming. Here despite being close to azimuth from Red Lion, WINB is never a bigsig at any hour, third-rate at best, unlike WRMI, WBCQ, WWCR, WTWW, WWRB, WHRI. I guess they must have fitting lowest rates attracting non-religious clients (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 880-USB plus carrier, Aug 27 at 0325 UT, ads for Window Rock, Tse Bonito, football talk in English, i.e. KHAC AZ/NM. Altho KRVN NE can be minimized by nulling, KHAC`s lack of any LSB makes monitoring on USB essential. If one wanted to hear KRVN or anything else on 880, LSB is the way to go, as long as KHAC is obviously running 10 kW ND day power at night instead of 430 watts. Think of how we could double occupancy of the MW band if everystation had to be USB or LSB only! Oh, that would also require switchable receivers, not in common usage (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 920, UT Sat Aug 27 at 0323 UT, football talk show seems to be called ``The Binge``, or is it station slogan? Anyhow, it`s surely KARN Little Rock AR again, not on its licensed night pattern, circle tangent to southwest, but putting dominant signal here to the WNW. New NRC AM Log says slogan is ``The Sports Animal``. It seems the ``HSFB`` = high-school football season is underway, predominantly on Friday nights encouraging many stations to violate their night power and/or  patterns, to the delight of DX station-counters --- but KARN seems to be doing this all the time, suspected on 5 kW ND. It was once a major LR station, KARK, flagship of the Arkansas Radio Network, and progenitor of channel 4 TV (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1290, Aug 27 at 0602 UT, immediately upon tune-in, ID as ``Oldies 1290 and 102.7, WIRL`` --- the slogan given in the new NRC AM Log, starting ``Good Time Oldies ---`` for this Peoria IL station. 102.7 is really translator W274BM. I was looking for WOMP Bellaire OH, off frequency at 1289.71, as KAZ in IL had reported a few hours earlier, but not traced here: that`s listed in NRC AM Log as 1000/33 watts ND (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VIETNAM [non]. 12005, Aug 27 at 0247, VOV in English but now VP signal via Woofferton. Same 250 kW, 282 azimuth as at 0100 when it`s usually better, but reception varies widely from night to night. Still not on 6175 as they think in Hanoi. But

6175, Aug 27 at 0309, VOV in Spanish now here via WHRI, having switched from 12005 Woofferton at 0300. ACI splash from 6180 Brasil. English to follow at 0330 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6946.60, Aug 27 at 0251, the mostly open carrier with occasional RTTY bursts is now running a continuous loud tone (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7692.0-USB, Aug 27 at 0300, colloquial Spanish 2-way discussing vuelos (flights), airports mentioned including Harlingen, Houston, Xalapa; also refers to ``el negrito`` and ``el negro``, casual Mexican racism? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

TOMORROW, SPECIAL BROADCAST TO CELEBRATE THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE BBC’S ATLANTIC RELAY STATION ON ASCENSION ISLAND

The BBC’s Atlantic Relay Station on Ascension Island celebrates its 50th anniversary this July. Operated by Babcock since 1997, the station’s unique location in the South Atlantic Ocean, 1,600 km from Africa and 2,250 km from South America, makes it an essential link in the overseas relay network operated by Babcock on behalf of the BBC.

Since its launch, the Atlantic Relay Station has been crucial in broadcasting BBC World Service programmes to Africa and South America. The station made its first short wave transmission of BBC programmes on July 3rd, 1966, just days before England won the World Cup football final.

Originally a BBC presenter was based at the site to make live announcements before playing pre-recorded programmes shipped from London. Later the station relayed short wave transmissions fed from the Daventry transmitter in the UK using unadvertised side-band frequencies. In the early 1980s, these were replaced by satellite feeds which provided listeners with studio quality audio for the first time.

The station remains as important as ever, broadcasting over 250 hours of programmes every week, in English, French, Hausa and Somali. Africa currently provides one of the BBC’s largest radio audiences in the world with nearly 66 million listeners every week—many tuning in to transmissions made from this 88 km2 island in the South Atlantic.

To celebrate the station’s 50th anniversary, at midday on Sunday, August 28th, 2016 there will be a special short wave digital broadcast using Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM). DRM is an international digital radio standard designed by broadcasters in co-operation with transmitter and receiver manufacturers. Both Babcock and the BBC are founding members of the DRM Consortium that is promoting this high quality digital technology to replace analogue radio transmission in the AM and FM bands.

The station remains as important as ever, broadcasting over 250 hours of programmes every week, in English, French, Hausa and Somali.

Glenn Hauser logs August 24-25-26, 2016

** BANGLADESH. 15505, Aug 26 at 1400:05.5, 5+1 mis-timesignal ending is pretty close from BB, after theme IS, before opening Urdu service. Has been a long time since I had enough very poor signal to perceive this (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MALAYSIA. 6050.003 to 6050.008, Aug 24 at 1247, two separate measurements of S3-S5 signal here presumed to be Asyik FM. Can`t get it up to 6050.011 where Wolfy put it the other day. Margin of error, or varies slightly? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA [and non]. 7255-, Aug 25 at 0602, no signal from VON, AWOL; 7285 South Africa is still audible very poorly (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, Aug 26 at 0104, JBA carrier from R. Chaski until autocutoff at 0105:21*, which is 32.5 seconds later than last clocking 5 days earlier, Aug 21 until 0104:48.5, slippage averaging 6.5 seconds later per noctem (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 9545, Aug 25 at 0550, S4 signal with some music and talk, presumed only known occupant, SIBC, again on later than usual 0500*. Someone said the normal schedule is until 0800 before switching to 5020, but I think not, as usually no signal audible after 0500. No doubt they are flexible as to QSY time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1839 monitoring: confirmed Wed Aug 24 at 2100 on WBCQ webcast, and then very poor on 7490. Wed Aug 24 at 2330, not audible at first from WBCQ 9330, off or not propagating; but detectable at 2357 on 9330.02, poor.

WORLD OF RADIO 1840: ready for first broadcasts Thu Aug 25: 1130 on WRMI 9955 should have been first but zzz here. Confirmed Thu Aug 25 at 2100 on WRMI 13695, VG.

** U S A. 11580, Aug 26 at 1325, WRMI `World Music` in a string of hymns/praise music, some with Xmas theme. Not so eclectic; but by 1346 something South-Asian, and more past 1359 ID pause (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, Wednesday Aug 24 at 1900, KVOH quits Spanish and signs off in English, then plays guitar IS alternating with IDs until 1905*. Not checked every day, but some Fridays, Spanish praising has stayed on way later than 1900 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5830, Aug 26 at 0518, no signal from WTWW-1, nor on day frequency 9475. Propagation is degraded, but WWCRs are still audible poorly on 5890 & 5935 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Glenn Hauser logs August 23-24, 2016

** ALBANIA. 9855-, Aug 24 at 0132, no signal from R. Tirana here (nor on 7475, but testing that is on the European service earlier instead). A few minutes later I do detect a JBA carrier on 9855-, so it must be on. K index at 0000 was 5 after G1 storms (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15700, Aug 23 at 1402, CRI relay in English starts off at S9 level but just barely modulated, ho hum (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 17640, Aug 24 at 1815 check, APR via MWV is on today, good signal but deep fading, story of a snit between Jesus and John who got rebuked (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MALAYSIA. 6050, Aug 24 at 1250, poor signal, low modulation? At 1305 it`s S5. Presumably Asyik FM, reactivated Aug 22 as reported by Ron Howard, he suggests leading up to Aug 31 independence day. Wolfgang Büschel measured this one 11 Hz high while Tibet was on 6050.000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 870, Aug 23 at 1203, XETAR in sign-on procedure with slogan ``Cuatro pueblos unidos en una sola voz, La Voz de la Sierra Tarahumara`` and immediately into one of those languages. Slightly after sunrise here now, we`ll be able to hear more and more of it in weeks to come (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7254.924, Aug 24 at 0554, VON is already on with a song at S9+30, enough to overcome the S9 computer noise I haven`t turned off yet. 0556 goes to dead air, presumably about to start its cacophonous tuning signal prior to Hausa (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9770 // 9870, Aug 24 at 0134, VOT Spanish is back on correct frequencies this time, instead of 9830 replacing 9770; but very poor. K index at 0000 was 5 after G1 storms (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. 7245-LSB, Wed Aug 24 at 1256, I find an LSB ham net QRMing RNZI which started using this AM frequency at the beginning of this month. NCS making ``last call`` for check-ins, apparently started at 1200. RNZI conveniently goes off at 1258 after QSY announcement to 6170. Most of the signals are weak here from the 9th and 4th call areas, but K9YX has a good signal [Lorenzen, Thomas D, K9YX, Gurnee, IL 60031]; others copied or called include KM4TX and WI4R. Mostly giving local weather conditions, but also praising military service, something-club net, and one mentions ``Tin Can Sailors``. That leads me to search out the net, and the organisation behind it, veterans of destroyer ships starting with WWII (and ever since?)

http://www.destroyers.org/communication%20center/tin_can_sailors_radio_net.htm

``THE TIN CAN SAILORS RADIO NET --- History

In April 1992, a member of Tin Can Sailors wrote an article in the TCS newspaper suggesting that it might be an idea to organize amateur radio operators who were Tin Can Sailors. Bill Plage (W4DQT) in Atlanta, GA responded to the call and contacted some known TCS hams and organized a net. The first session was held August 9, 1992 on its current operating frequency of 14.255 MHz. at 2100Z with Bill as its first Net Control Station (NCS).

The net has gained popularity over the years with a current roster of over 400 TCS hams, although the net is not made up of only USN types. We have as members a former USAF pilot who was shot down over Korea and was pulled from the drink by a destroyer (USS STORMES). "It was the most welcome sight I had ever seen coming towards me and I spent 5 of the most wonderful days of my life on that destroyer. The clean dry sheets were great and the chow was even better," he commented. We also have a former Marine, former Army missile control officer, as well as active duty destroyermen and retired Tin Can Sailors.

Net Schedule

The primary net meets every Sunday at 2000Z on 14.255 MHz.

There are also three Wednesday morning nets. On the East Coast it is on 7.2455 MHz immediately following the Navy Club Net at 0900 Eastern, and on the West Coast on 7.258 (+/- as conditions permit) at 0900 Pacific time. There is a CW net on 7.117 MHz at 1000 Eastern Time.

Any inquiries or requests to have a net number assigned can be addressed to me along with a SASE (Business size Number 10 and two units of postage). We would like a little bio info from the applicant such as destroyers served on and when. There are no dues of the radio net but donations are accepted for stamps, paper, etc., to provide the members with a net roster and ships served on list as well as periodic notifications of ships reunions of members on the net.

These requests can be made to Tom Ryan, N6NPG,
300 N. Peg St., Ridgecrest, CA 93555-3615
e-mail: t.ryan15@verizon.net``

So it appears I was hearing the transition from the Navy Club Net to the Tin Can Sailors at 1300 UT. These were not on 7245.5-LSB, but exactly on 7245.0, probably encouraged to zero-beat the intrusive AM signal from NZ, which of course has every right to be there as long as the ITU and IARU cannot agree to segregate ham from broadcast bands worldwide (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1839 monitoring: NOT confirmed Tue Aug 23 at 2130 on WRMI 15770, instead replaced like last week by WRMI`s radiobeeps test for HFCC. We uncovered advance notice of the special broadcast for last week, but not this week. Maybe *next* week we`ll be back on this only WOR/WRMI broadcast toward Europe. Confirmed Tue Aug 23 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9330.076-CUSB. Also confirmed Wed Aug 24 at 1315.5 (after gh WRMI ID and a few notes of intrusive music fill), on WRMI 9955, S9 with no jamming. Next: 
Wed 2100   WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Wed 2330   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12105, Aug 24 at 0135, WTWW-3 is S9+20 of dead air except for some hum. 9475, WTWW-1 with SFAW is S9+40, and so is 5085, WTWW-2 with QSO show repeat. Despite earlier G1 storm and K-index of 5, attenuating Eurosigs, these three are now much stronger than they were 24 hours ago (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 750, Aug 24 at 0558 UT, dominating signal is in Spanish looping E/W, rather than WSB in English. Ads with several 1-800 numbers mentioned, and other clues it`s American, not Mexican, clinched at 0559 UT by Univisión América in ID whose call letters I can`t copy, but it is surely Ua affiliate KAMA El Paso TX. Then WSB starts to fade up. Both day and night patterns of 10/1 kW U4 KAMA are supposed to go ONLY due west, so must be out of whack again. See DXLD 15-49 for more about this and a possible STA for 250 watts and U5 = non-direxional at night; I had not logged since December, but several times earlier last year (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VATICAN. UNIDENTIFIED. 17505-17510-17515, Aug 23 at 1959, DRM noise at S9+20 but off at 2000*. No doubt same source as heard a few minutes earlier on Aug 13, but what? On a hunch, I e-mail Jeff White with a cc to Fibber:

Jeff, No doubt you are very busy with HFCC, but would appreciate a quick reply to this if you know the answer. Have been hearing DRM on 17510, today until off at 2000 UT. Also heard August 13 at 1933. Pretty strong. Not in HFCC or any other reference I can find, including DRM`s own schedule {very outdated}. Is this by chance some unpublicized test for HFCC, and if so from where, full schedule details, please? Tnx, (Glenn to Jeff White, 2025 UT Aug 23, via DXLD)

Glenn: It's a special test from Vatican Radio for the HFCC Miami Conference. In fact it was publicized in some places, such as
http://www.facebook.com/nasbshortwave
We were just listening to it here at the hotel in Miami with excellent reception on the new Titus II DRM radio and the Newstar DR111 (Jeff White, 2035 UT Aug 23, via DXLD) Viz.:

I would like to inform you about a special broadcast on occasion of the next HFCC International Broadcasting Delivery coordination conference in Miami, 22-26 August 2016.

The broadcast is from Santa Maria di Galeria, Vatican Radio transmitting site, at 19:30 – 20:00 UTC on 17510 kHz, 250 kW digital, AHR 4/4/.5 at 292°, 16QAM-ModeB-Protection level 0.62 – Bit rate 14560 – SDR On. The broadcast is already on air even if officially it would start on 22 August till 25 August 2016; the content currently broadcast is in French and English but during the "official" period it would be an ad-hoc program with announcement and music.

Best regards. Sergio Salvatori, Vatican Radio`` (via DXLD)

I have been posting about it lately on DRMNA.
http://drmnainfo.blogspot.co.id/2016/08/hfcc-2016-drm-special-from-vatican-radio.html?m=1
Regards, (Christopher for DRMNA ``Fibber,`` Rumbaugh, 2048 UT Aug 23, ibid.)

Repeating my Aug 13 report of this as unID:
UNIDENTIFIED. 17505-17510-17515-DRM, Aug 13 at 1933, DRM noise at S5. 
Nothing in any of the schedules to explain this, and no hits ever on 
17510 in the virtually dormant drmna yg or the DRM Software Forum. Nor 
is anything even on the DRM Consortium`s own sked:
http://www.drm.org/?page_id=151
when configured to show all entries, and sorted by frequency: but many 
of the entries (e.g. NZ) are obviously outdated. Nor is any other 
broadcast mode scheduled on these frequencies at this hour.

Perhaps some secret test leading up to HFCC B-16 conference in Zika-
threatened Miami, Aug 22-26; details:
http://hfcc.org/B16/
and partly restricted to members only:

PCJ - Radio Netherlands special now 28-29 August


There was a technical problem with the transmission of our special program From The Radio Netherlands Archives Program 2. It has been rescheduled to August 28 & 29. Times and frequencies remain the same. (PCJ - Media related topics on Facebook) [originally announced as 21/22 August]

Europe - 0600 to 0800UTC Date: August 28, 2016 Frequency: 7780kHz

North America - 0100 to 0300UTC Date: August 29, 2016 Frequency: 7570kHz

PCJ Radio International will present part 2 of From The Radio Netherlands Archives.  In the first program we played a mix bag of stuff. But in program two the focus will be on news and documentaries. You will hear Ginger Da Silva, Eric Beauchemin, Pete Myers and more.

There will be a special E-QSL issued for this program. PCJ Radio  International's partner stations will receive this program in two  parts. The program will be presented by Paulette MacQuarrie. (PCJ - Media)

Marconi Radio International's schedule on 24 August 2016

Just a short reminder of our regular weekly brodcasts on Wednesdays. Marconi Radio International will once again be on air tomorrow  24 August 2016, as follows: 

16.00-18.00 on 7700 kHz (USB Mode), 1830-1930 UTC on 15070 kHz (USB mode), and 2000-2200 UTC on 7700 kHz (USB Mode).
 
Our broadcasts include some kind of programmes now sadly missing from most shortwave radio stations:  an old style DX show in English “Italian Short Wave Panorama”  and Italian "Panorama Onde Corte", both with lot of recent logs, as well as  a mailbag programme in Italian. Our  station identification announcements are not only in English and Italian but also in French, German, Japanese, Romanian, Spanish and Catalan.

For the first time in our history a Facebook page about our station has been introduced. It is called "MRI World" and can be found at this 
web address: https://www.facebook.com/mriworld - Although it is still  far from being completed  you can leave your comments and suggestions.

 
MRI encourages reception reports from listeners. Audio clips (mp3-file) of our broadcasts are welcome! We QSL 100%. Our electronic mail address is: marconiradiointernational@gmail.com - Please don’t forget to include your postal address as some lucky listeners will also receive a printed QSL card.
 
Last but not least,  we need your help! Please, share this announcement on your walls and in your facebook groups or on your email lists with those who might be interested. This should help increase our  potential audience.
 
We hope to hear from a lot of shortwave listeners about our transmissions.

** ALBANIA. 7475, Aug 23 at 0119, no signal from R. Tirana, where Shijak site was planning to test a night or two, to be sure it would work for the B-16 schedule: still on 9855-, with IS already on in humroar at S5 level. Maybe tomorrow, or whenever they get around to it: if 9855 be missing, try 7475. Also checked at 0230, in case they test at that hour, but neither on then. And during other N American broadcast, Albanian hour Aug 22 was still on 9855 at 2334 check. I`m afraid the same humroar will be heard on 7475; besides that, the single 100 kW Shijak transmitter is running no more than 50% power.

Or maybe the 7475 test won`t be during NAm broadcasts at all. Christian Milling of Shortwave Service in Germany says:

``7475 was on the air yesterday during the German programming at 19h30 UTC. The transmission had the same buzz-noise problem as before. As I already wrote to Mr. Mema, Eng. of the transmission centre in Shijak, I suspect the modulator to be the culprit.

"I've made some soundanalysis and came to the conclusion that the humming doensn't come from the AC power supply as it is not sinus-formed or from the Studio. It's more triangular or sawtooth-like. As far as I know you are using the Chinese BBEF transmitters at Shijak. They have a PDM-Modulator. The humming is typical when the modulator or the filter has a defect`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** AUSTRALIA. 17839.96, Aug 23 at 0153, RA is good, and off-frequency have noticed before but not bothered to measure. // 15240 is very poor, and // 15415 a JBA carrier, both much less than 15720 NZ as well (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9530, Aug 23 at 0127, R. Progreso is S7 and quite readable here on 2 x 4765 with matching ``Reportero R-P`` programming; best heard yet on 9530, and no jamming either, but need LSB tuning to avoid RHC 9535: such frequency planning, Arnie! Also a good time to look for third harmonic of 4765, and there it is! On 14295 intruding into 20m hamband, at S2-S3 also with // audio. But not audible on 19060 = 4 x 4765. I bet some fraxion of signal is radiating there too, but not enough MUF (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)  

** EAST TURKISTAN. 9470, Aug 23 at 0122, CRI English is S5, stronger than attenuated 9475 WTWW; IDed by // 9570 Albania relay which is slightly ahead of 9470; but 9470 is considerably ahead of 9580 Cuba. 9470 is one of countless 500 kW, 308 degree transmissions from Kashgar for Europeans, who can`t get enough of CRI even at 2, 3 in the morning (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EGYPT. 9343, Aug 23 at 0120, S5 motorboating pulses, seems same rate tho much weaker than on S9 9315, with no program modulation whatsoever.

12085, Aug 23 at 0149, R. Cairo is already on in Qur`an, S6, some hum but not bad; 9745 is also on with wobbling carrier at S2, no program modulation audible. After 0200 both are scheduled as Abis, 250 kW at 315 degrees, so I figured they were alternates from same transmitter; before 0200, 9745 is on 241 degrees, and I thought went off to 12085 at 0200. But obviously two transmitters are involved now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1640, KZLS heard in Argentina: See USA: WTNI log

** SPAIN. 15500, Sun Aug 21 at 2251, S9+10 open carrier/dead air - surely it`s REE on late past normal 2200*, yet failing to modulate. 17855 is also still on and modulating Olympic coverage, much stronger than // 17715 S9, and >> // 15390 S8. 2259 announcement about closing ceremony, 2301 sign-off saying we should stay tuned for the closing but on internet and TDT (DTV), not SW. Then playing IS on all four frequencies until 2305 open carriers; 2312, 17855 is still dead air along with 15500; 2326 check all are off (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9770, Aug 22 at 0132 as I am tuning up the 9 MHz band, NO signal from VOT in Spanish, so I bet it`s on the wrong frequency again, 9830 which was last used in English before 2300. Yes! There it is, 9830, S7-S8 at 0132 in Spanish // S5 9870 undermodulated. 

9836 at 0134 has a noise blob, and another one around 9824, so I suspect those are parasites from 9830, but which sounds OK on fundamental. However, at 0156 after 9830 is off, still a blob on 9836 but not 9824. Another suspect source is 9855- Albania which I think has put out such spurs audible in Europe, but normally too weak to carry them on to here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UGANDA [non]. 15240-, Sunday August 21 at 1720 tune-in, no signal from R. Munansi via WWRB. But no signal either from 15825 neighbor WWCR, so could it be bad propagation? Its other 3 frequencies, 13845, 12160, 9980 are at normal loud levels. But 1724 recheck, now WWRB is on 15240- in presumed Luganda at VG level, so a momentary break, or totally late coming on today past 1600 or 1700? That means 15825 WWCR must really be AWOL (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 6080, Aug 22 at 0609, VOA news in English, VP S5. HFCC shows SAO TOME at 04-07; we hear it much better at 03-04 via Botswana, but at least there`s no stray Cuban pulse jamming audible now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1839 monitoring: confirmed Sunday August 21 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9330.021-CUSB. Also confirmed UT Monday August 22 at 0030 on WRMI, 7730, VG. Also confirmed UT Monday Aug 22 at 0301 on Area 51 webcast, and on WBCQ 5129.861-AM at 0307 check, S9+10. Also confirmed UT Mon Aug 22 at 0330 on WRMI 9955, S9+20, over pulse jamming; tnx a lot, Arnie! Also confirmed Monday Aug 22 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9330.094-CUSB. Next:

** U S A. 7570, UT Monday August 22 at 0100 on WRMI, no show from part 2 of PCJ Radio International`s `From the Archives of Radio Netherlands` as scheduled now per publicity 2-3 weeks ago. Not on 7780 either, the original frequency mixup; nothing but BS. The two-hour special was also missing from its first scheduled airing, Sunday Aug 21 at 0600 UT, to Europe on 7780 nor on 7570, per Alan Gale, UK, also occupied by non-preëmpted Brother HyStairical. Later, Keith Perron says there was a technical problem and both are rescheduled for exactly one week later, Aug 28-29 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12105, Aug 23 at 0126, WTWW-3 is S3-S4 of dead air. 9475, Aug 23 at 0122, WTWW-1 with SFAW is VP only S4, as post-sunset propagation is really dropping out, but will stay on day frequency until 0200 QSY to 5830 (maybe). Or are they both running way underpowered? 9475 weaker than S5 9470 CRI; see EAST TURKISTAN (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9605, Aug 23 at 0200, tnx to tip from Claudio Galaz, Chile, condiglista, who heard WHRI here in English until 0300 Aug 21, I keep listening after the KBS World Radio relay in Spanish, and sure enough, it keeps going on 9605, with Onward Christian Soldiers crusading/warmongering theme, and 0202 ID ``now broadcasting on 7315 kHz``, into USA net news. No, you`re not! If I were the staff announcer at WHR, would be PO`d that someone is making me sound like a fool, way out of touch with reality. O, that is the entire mission of WHR, so never mind. Nothing on 7315. 0208 recheck, a promo in Spanish for some gospel huxter promising milagros, then WHR English ID and praise music. WHR`s own schedule indeed shows Angel 1 on 9605 with KBS daily at 01-02, and on 7315 before and after, the 0200-0300 period being own Harvest Show. (But on (UT?) Sunday only, Angel 2 appears on 7315 at 01-02, instead of 5920 before and after). Anyhow, their automation/scheduling for Angel 1 must be screwed up unless this is a late change not yet entered (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. 570, Aug 22 at 0531 UT, WNAX news of South Dakota atop KLIF Dallas, unusual; daytime on ND day pattern, groundwave WNAX Yankton is always there under KLIF; night goes NNE with minor lobe SW. Rock music on the side probably from KWML New Mexico, its new ex-sports format. Also in the mix some RRs from Radio Reloj, CUBA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 820, Aug 22 at 0603 UT after network news, WBAP with local news from Dave Alpert, as I`m still on 820 after trying to ID the Mexican. Would that be the DXer and former ABC newsman Dave Alpert, last known to be in Studio City, California? Or another one (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** U S A. 1010, Aug 23 at 0206 UT, areacodeless phone 751-9360 by some gospel huxter, loops about NNW/SSE, or best with ESPN from Amarillo WSW nulled, with which it makes a fast SAH. Promo for `Turning Point` on KBBW AM 1010 and ##5.7 FM, with two times, one AM, one PM. NRC AM Log 2015 shows the FM is K289BU 105.7, ``Life Changing Radio``. Then talk radio with a lifestyle coach. KBBW is Waco TX, believe a new one here, which should not be that rare with 10/2.5 kW U4. But let`s look at the NRC Pattern Book: day has major lobe south, minor lobes north. Night has two tight little lobes to WNW and SSE, which makes the minor day lobe better for us. Official FCC sunset in August was 0115 UT (Sept: 0030 UT). Apparently BBW here does not mean what we and Google might think it means (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1640, Aug 23 at 0158 UT, with local KZLS nulled, I have no problem hearing ESPN promos, and fast SAH from WTNI Biloxi MS with a TOH ID preceded by one for some FM station --- I thought, but none are listed, not even a translator; rather, its simulcasted sibling is WXBD 1490, also in Biloxi, why? Address for both ``The Champ`` is really Gulfport. Anyhow, such reception thru my local reinforces my suspicion that WTNI is running 10 kW day power at night. 

BTW, KZLS made it all the way to Patagonia, per this DX-pedition:
https://lagalenadelsur.wordpress.com/2016/08/19/pescando-radioemisoras-distantes-desde-la-patagonia-pantanito-dx-camp-2016/
including a 4-second clip of the KZLS ID, with misunderstood calls:
https://youtu.be/4p8dsn3TGLw
Altho seldom reported down there beyond WTNI, it`s not too surprising as KZLS has a tight beam SSE toward OKC and beyond, even with only 1 kW at night (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** VIETNAM [non]. 12005, Aug 23 at 0149, VOV is still here via UK, not 6175, Vietnamese at S6, so also for English at 0100 & 0230 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

UNIDENTIFIED. 774, Aug 22 at 1156 UT, JBA carrier again, seems from Australia rather than Japan. No other splits audible at sunrise (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 820, Aug 22 from 0533 UT, Spanish music, mostly romantic vocal, with WBAP nulled as much as possible, making slow SAH like last time. Listened past 0600 UT and never caught any announcement, let alone an ID or slogan, but maybe some appeared in fades, from per John Wilkins, XEABCA in Mexicali, ``Canal 820 ABC Radio``. Not hearing much from it after 0600 UT, off then? There`s the music again at 1158 UT but losing to WBAP by 1200 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
