Glenn Hauser logs November 30, 2013

** CUBA. RHC anomalies Nov 30: 11860 and 11690 are off at 1353 UT, both supposed to start at 1200; 11760, if on, is buried in QRM. Confirmed on are 11750, 15230, 17580. By 1402, 11860 and the other three 25m channels are all on, including 11760 which is now atop QRM. 15340 doesn`t come on until 1402, modulation on and off and back on at 1403 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6935.2-AM, Nov 30 at 0152, ``Wabash Cannonball``, 0155 ``Beverly Hillbillies``, 0157 ID as ``Radio Appalachia, the free voice of the Ohio Valley, broadcasting from --- in West Virginia; this is Radio Appalachia``, then another bluegrass song. Fair signal; QRM de Spanish 2-way on 6940-LSB required narrow bandwidth or LSB tuning from 6935-. Here are some other reports of it:,14131.0.html

** SPAIN. 21640, Sat Nov 30 at 1356, REE with poor signal here instead of 21630 where it stays on weekdays despite collision with BBC Hausa Ascension at 1400-1430; at least this avoids collisions with WHRI later on weekends (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1697 monitoring: confirmed on Area 51 webcast starting at 0306 UT Saturday Nov 30 --- but first an audio clip of a ``Hogan`s Heroes`` TV sitcom episode with phony-sounding laugh track until it ends abruptly. Then WOR also confirmed on WBCQ 5110v-CUSB at 0310.

One more reminder that the Saturday Nov 30 1600-1630 broadcast of WOR on WRMI 9955 will be the last one, both at that timing and on the old transmitter, as Brother Scare and Okeechobee take over from next week. Jeff White will endorse the WRMI/WOR QSL for final day on air if correct reports are sent directly to WRMI (and no fudging, please). Normally I can barely hear it if at all.

Remember, Okeechobee officially starts as WRMI at 0500 UT Sunday December 1, presumably on several frequencies, mainly Brother Scare.

Next WORs: UT Sunday 0030 on WTWW-2 5085; UT Sunday 0501 on WTWW-1 5830 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. TP carrier search Nov 30 at 1323: JBA on 594, but no others found at sunrise by 1053 where I stop (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 3009, Nov 30 at 0045, CW here, slow enough for me to copy but it doesn`t make sense. Also the pitch/frequency keeps changing slightly. Thought it might be a HIFER beacon, but no repetitive ID. At one point it says SK (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
