Glenn Hauser logs September 11-17, 2015

** CHINA [and non]. 15565, Sept 17 at 1327, CNR1 jammer is very poor, but making het with 15567 carrier, no doubt V of Tibet via Tajikistan, as per Aoki at 1315-1340, after shifting from 15568 at 1306-1315. With extremely poor propagation from E Asia, have not heard any of these for weeks, and still no CNR1 OOB jammers in scan of 12-18 MHz; but one other is surely the CCI on 15115 under VOA Thailand. Next up on 15575 is an even weaker JBA carrier from the so-called N American service of KBS World Radio (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 720, Sept 15 at 1200, XE NA, 1202 full ID for XEJCC, Ciudad Juárez, 10 kW, Grupo Radio México, Extremo 7-20 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 900, Sept 15 at 1206, Chihuahua anthem ends, ``el número uno``, Ciudad Cuauhtémoc, full ID for XEDT 900-AM, XHDT 98.3 FM, 25 mil watts, address in Colonia Centro, ``una estación de Cadena Hits``, into country rock in English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 9690- // 7255-, Sept 17 after 0600, VON Hausa is on again and propagating well enough; not heard 48 hours earlier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Full WOR schedule:

** U S A. 1480, Sept 17 at 1213-1220 UT, I am monitoring for the allegedly reactivated KBXD Dallas TX --- no sign of it despite official FCC September sunrise for 50 kW day power at 1215 UT --- just KQAM Wichita with unID talkhost dissecting the latest Republican debate. This source also thinx it`s off the air, and even refuses to display any coverage patterns:
Mark Sills in Denton/Dallas confirms NO signal on 1480 around 1650 UT Sept 17 (he also says R. Disney, KMKI 620 Plano has been off for at least two days --- sale to Salem; and KKLF 1700 is irregular, sometimes extremely distorted overmodulation) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1510, Sept 13 at 0240 UT, ``When the music has to be the best, 93.7 The Rock``, after Elvis, Smoky Robinson, Rolling Stones, very good, dominating. To be expected with 10/25 kW, higher power at night, from KCKK Littleton CO, address in Lakewood, both Denver suburbs; while the 93.7 is merely K229BS. Both day and night patterns on 1510 shoot tightly NNE/SSW, right at us in northern NM. This must blow away 25-watt-night KOAZ Isleta/Albuquerque! But which of course has its own FM duplicate. Nevertheless, I logged KCKK last March and April in Enid, as in DXLD 15-09 and 15-14 (Glenn Hauser, caradio near Questa NM, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1530, Sept 11 at 0547 UT, in Spanish mentions Luz Radio, ##5.1 FM, but this must be red herring. Constantly cuts out audio for 2 or 3 seconds, but good signal; ``por primera vez en la radio de Austin``, música tropical. It`s certainly KZNZ, CoL Creedmoor TX, with address in El Paso per NRC AM Log, also rather misleading: radio-locator shows an address really in Austin. 

Creedmoor is too small to appear in my Rand McNally but presumably somewhere around Austin, not El Paso. Loops approx. east/west from here. 0550 UT tabloid news, still cutting out; family advice for madres, mentions La Bella Durmiente, Blanca de Nieve, quite dominant signal past 0600 UT no ID, plug `Dentro` algo program ``a las 12, hora del Centro``; 0601 UT confusing IDs copied as KLVE HD4 95.5 FM Bastrop, KLVE HD4 95.1 FM, ``Radio Mujer, el sexto sentido de la radio``; still cutting out. Radio Mujer is the listed name for KZNZ, but I can`t find a correlation in Texas with either FM frequency and KLVE is not a correct call. Bastrop is another suburb of Austin. Radio Mujer apparently originates in Mexico, per link from Radio-locator, but no affiliate list for either country found at
(Glenn Hauser, Santa Rosa NM, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

1530, Sept 13 at 0222 UT, KZNZ, Spanish with 512-area code ad, mentions 95.1 FM, audio again cutting out during break, but on to football game coverage, no cutting out from that remote program source (Glenn Hauser, caradio near Questa NM, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1550, Sept 17 at 0619 UT, something new dominating frequency, immediate ID as ``The songs you love, and it`s all gospel, WPFC 1550``, on to ad apparently from Louisiana. Yes, it`s listed as 5000/42 watts U1, ``Winning People For Christ`` in Bâton Rouge``. Must be on day power. With a W-call, I assume it`s on the left bank of the Mississippi, like the bulk of the capital city. No, per
site is definitely west of the Miss, NW of center city in a crook of the River (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

NOTE: all skywave MW logs from my NM trip have now been published; full trip log will concern FM and groundwave MW only (gh)
