Glenn Hauser logs December 21, 2014

** BRAZIL. 11747 & 11813, Dec 21 at 0612, distorted music spurs from 11780.1 RNA/RNB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11920, Dec 21 at 0223, surprised to hear RHC Spanish here, fading in and out --- it`s a mixing product of very strong 11760 over 11840 another 80 kHz higher, but in this case probably produced in the FRG-7 due to receiver overload (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9420, Dec 21 at 0610, Greek music, F-G so ERTOpen is on, which is far from always the case (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INTERNATIONAL VACUUM [non]. Robert Conrad, ``Sagegrush Bob`` host of `Weekend Radio` from WCLV and widely syndicated including on KUCO OK, mentioned Dec 22 that he is thinking of re-running one of the best radio serials ever, `Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy` within his one-hour weekly show. There would be 12 x 30 minute episodes, starting in March or April. Listener input requested on this idea. See

** MEXICO. 960, Dec 21 at 0600-0605 UT, Fox-hole dead-air of KGWA Enid checked with tight null: tonight it`s inhabited by Spanish romantic song, 0601 choral NA, 0602.5 XEK Nuevo Laredo ID, more romx past 0605 when KGWA modulation cuts back on. Making fast SAH with the KGWA carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 6185, Dec 21 at 0615, fair open carrier, must be XEPPM residual from nominal 0600*, and this goes off by 0616* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 12030, Dec 21 at 1545, Castilian conversation, confirming that revived REE does start at early as 1500 on Sundays. 11940, 11685, 9620 inaudible now; 12030 is for the ME and the Indican Ocean (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1752 monitoring: confirmed UT Sunday Dec 21 at 0231 on KVOH, 9975; following usual opening procedure: 0225 praise music prélude, 0230 sign-on and program previews until 0500. VG signal, somewhat undermodulated but sufficient. Next:
Sun 2300 on WRMI 11580
Mon 0400v on Area 51 via WBCQ 5110v-CUSB
Mon 2201 on Global 24 via WRMI 9395
Tue 1200 on WRMI 9955
Wed 0401 on Global 24 via WRMI 9395
Wed 0730 & 1530 on Hamburger Lokalradio 7265-CUSB
Wed 1415 on WRMI 9955
Wed 2200 on WBCQ 7490v
Wed 2201 on Global 24 via WRMI 9395

** U S A. 9330-CUSB, UT Sun Dec 21 at 0226, WBCQ is unusually on the air, seldom-used frequency any more, VG signal with conversation. This schedule would have us believe that 9330 is not on air weekends at all, just M-F 23-24 with `Money Talks`, and UT Sat 01-02 only `AWWW`.

Axually, this program is probably duplicating 7490:
Sa 7490 06:00PM 09:00PM ET 2300 0200 UTC Pirate Pizza Night
Sa 7490 09:00PM 12:00AM ET 0200 0500 UTC Shortwave Saturday Night -
                                         The Other Pirate Joe Show
or 5110, unchecked:
Sa 5110 07:00PM 09:00PM ET 0000 0200 UTC Radio Timtron Worldwide
Sa 5110 09:00PM 10:00PM ET 0200 0300 UTC The Lumpy Gravy Radio Show
Sa 5110 10:00PM 11:00PM ET 0300 0400 UTC The Lost Discs Radio Show
Sa 5110 10:00PM 11:00PM ET 0300 0400 UTC The Eric Dolphy Mystery Hour
Sa 5110 11:00PM 12:00AM ET 0400 0500 UTC Listener's Choice

** U S A. 5935, Dec 21 at 0614, WWCR-2 is very strong with DGS, not unusual, but off-tuning slightly to either sideband I am hearing higher-pitched musical crosstalk! And I can immediately match it on a second receiver to the programming on 3215, WWCR-1! After all these years, WWCR is unable to totally isolate the adjacent transmitters and antennas from each other (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1010, UT Sun Dec 21 at 0625 UT, gospel huxter preaching in English, loops WSW/ENE, strong and steady, just like 24 hours earlier when Spanish here was from KXXT Tolleson AZ. Its Spanish hours are allegedly only on weeknites, so is this KXXT too, back to English?

Program schedule at
shows this is what ought to be on now in MST:
Sat 8:00 PM - 12:00 AM Arizona Sports Network

while 24 hours later it would be more like what we hear:
Sun The Bible Doctrine Hour, 11 pm - midnight
So maybe this is KXEN or something else tonight.

KXXT sked does show its Spanish hours in MST as generically:
M-F 8:00 PM - 6:00 AM Tue-Sat Conexion Cristiana
Not from 6 pm as I thought they announced.

Also has a link to Foreign Language [Christian] Broadcasts:
not on this station but many others, mostly webcasts

** U S A. 1010, Dec 21 at 0629 UT, ESPN Radio mentioned as QRM to gospel huxter dominant. If we were to believe the Wikipedia list of ESPN affils, it could only be WJXL Jacksonville Beach FL, 50/30 kW. However, the 2015 NRC AM Log has a much closer if weaker 1010 possibility, KTNZ Amarillo TX which is 5000/500 watts. Wiki shows the 1440 station in AMA as ESPN but admittedly incomplete and out of date:
While ESPN itself now lists 1010 KTNZ:
BTW, in sorting out IDs by sports networks, keep in mind that not all stations are exclusive with one network or another (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1050, Dec 21 at 0627 UT, something in English is easily heard with XEG in fade and easily nullable: ``Giving you the music you want and the truth you need, 10-50, KJBN``. Axually I copied the call as KJVN?? But the slogan matches what`s on in Little Rock AR. It`s non-direxional day and night, 1000/19 watts. What do you bet it was day power?
