Glenn Hauser logs January 31, 2015

** AUSTRALIA [and non]. 11945, Jan 31 at 0647, RA logged on this frequency for one last time, pop music, fair.

9580, Jan 31 at 1339, RA is OFF this frequency, one which was supposed to continue after the major cutbacks at 1300 Jan 31! Instead, 9475 is still on with a countdown on `Saturday Night Country` but with a poor signal, obviously not on the 70 degree antenna.

So I check out all the other frequencies. These are also gone: 5940, 5995, 6080, 6150. These two are still on: 12065 with VG signal, and 12085 with VP and fluttery signal. Therefore from relative signals I conclude that contrary to latest `official` sked from RA, assuming the only three planned azimuths remain correct, instead we have:

12065 at 70 degrees
12085 at 355 degrees
 9475 at 30 degrees (could be less)

This online sked is still the old one expiring Jan 31, geez!
http://www.radioaustralia.net.au/international/radio/waystolisten/abc-radio-shortwave-frequency-guide.pdf
Maybe by the time you click on it, will have been updated?

Absence of 9580 removes ACI to Iran`s Japanese service on 9585, in well at 1340 and 1410 chex. 9475 is bad news, as WTWW-1 will come on there any minute now; but not promptly at 1400 as I hear beginning of ABC news, about Queensland premier ousted in an elexion (the one who was suing a 4BC shock-jock for defamation). Recheck at 1409, WTWW is now on, totally blocking RA.

Assuming RA stix to these three frequencies until 2100, we`ll have to see how well 12065 holds up toward North America thru the day. It could do well enough, better than 9580 would have.

Oh, oh, at 1645 check, NO signal on 12065 or 9580. Something weak on 12085, not sure if still RA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, Jan 31 at 1343, RHC is just barely modulated: wiggle that patchcord [JBM: WTP] (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** FRANCE. 17510, Jan 31 at 1452, poor signal with fading, American gospel huxter. Thought it might be WHRI which once used this frequency, but no comparison to strength of 17790 WRMI and HFCC shows 17510 is now something via MBR, Issoudun, 250 kW, 83 degrees at 1400-1500 Sats, 1430-1500 Suns. We have to go do Aoki for the specifics: Bible Voice Broadcasting, English at 1400-1500 Saturdays only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** HUNGARY. 25940-USB, Jan 31 at 1502, HA3NU making quick contacts with US stations; is there a contest? QRZ.com shows:
HA3NU
LASZLO WEISZ
ZRINYI U. 99.
SZEKSZARD H-7100
Hungary
And refers to his own homepage:
http://radioamator.honlapepites.hu/?p=365
headed by an impressive photo of the town viewed thru his quad antenna, altho all antennas were destroyed in a storm.

Turn radio back on at 1645, and HA3NU is still going, cleaning up on US contacts (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN. 9595, Jan 31 at 1351, R. Nikkei I is playing a Disney medley with really silly sounds and childish voice seemingly with Japanese lyrix, including ``Chim Chim Charee``, ``Hi Ho, Hi Ho``, 1355 ``Bippity, Boppity, Bue``, titles of which are untranslatable. What fun, on fair signal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KUWAIT [and non]. 21580, Jan 31 at 1406, R. Kuwait on wrong frequency instead of 21540, VG with Qur`an, long pauses. All the other possible 13m signals are audible too, 21470, 21505, 21630. Ivo Ivanov has often found RK on wrong frequencies like this. Still 21580 at 1457 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 880, Jan 31 at 0656, ID for Grupo Radio México quickly reeling off four FMs, but no AMs! Mentions Los Mochis; separable from KHAC and, strangely, not much from KRVN now; 0658 a corrida, 0700 La Rancherita slogan. IRCA Mexican Log shows this is XEPNK, Los Mochis, Sinaloa, 10/2 kW, La Rancherita, 1200-0700, variedades format, net OIR, // 103.5 FM. Unknown if it really went off at 0700 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6770.0, Jan 31 at 0650, oldtime radio pirate, poor signal with dramatic music and dialog, some words readable at peaks, but still far too poor for easy listening. Not offset to low side any more, as 6769.9. This thing has been operating continuously for months now without a bust. Judging from generally much better reception reported east of here, it`s not to the west of here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 7325, Jan 31 at 1405, not a trace of a signal from Wantok Radio Light, even during the window when CRI is taking a break, altho someone had reported hearing it recently; however, with only 1 kW it still could be on and not making it here. Ron Howard hasn`t been able to hear it either (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SCOTLAND. 24966-USB, Jan 31 at 1455, ham Steve from the Orkney Islands, northern tip of Scotland, M- call but not fonetik; 1458 says he issues e-QSLs only, temp 4 C, winds 60-70 mph! And snow showers. Contacting US stations, but not in a big hurry to move on, finally at 1520, MM0SJH with fonetix closing contact with Bob, WA0LRB, unheard as no doubt too close to me. Steve`s QRZ.com page does not show last name or specific location lest someone try to p-mail him! 12m is wide open from Europe, not 10m (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9930, Jan 31 at 1411, WTWW-2 is on with a new format, the best one yet: classical music! By string orchestra. Unfortunately, tho super signal level, it`s ruined by distortion especially at modulation peaks. Still such at 1445, 1609, 1645 chex. What next? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Glenn Hauser logs January 30-31, 2015

** EGYPT. 9965++, Jan 31 at 0118, R. Cairo, ME music, undermodulated and as usual considerably off-frequency to hi side

9860+, Jan 31 at 0119, R. Cairo, distorted and undermodulated presumed Spanish; slightly on the hi side

12080, Jan 31 at 0119, R. Cairo? Very poor with flutter

12035, Jan 31 at 0120, R. Cairo, fair with flutter, just barely modulated. Aoki lists both 12080 and 12035 for Spanish, but I rarely hear both at the same time; nothing else listed now for either (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9935, Jan 31 at 0118, horrible whine and motorboating atop program modulation in Greek from ERTOpen; no such problem on stronger // 9420 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 960, Jan 31 at 0200 with local KGWA precisely nulled during a silly ballgame, I have been hearing songs in English, [see UNIDENTIFIED] and hope for an ID now, but instead it`s XEK Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas, announcing 5,000 watts, and then playing `XEW` chimes, four descending, plus a fifth lower, immediately followed by American Legion PSA in English for veterans, which surely was from some other, US station (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. I`ve been wondering just how high the Broadway Tower (to be Hotel?) in downtown Enid is; I count 14 stories, plus another penthouse occupied by broadcast transmitters. If 10 feet per story is standard, that makes about 150 feet, or 46 meters to the roof level where all the FM and TV transmitting antennas grow. K288FX on 105.5 (which remains on the air now), is licensed at 60 meters = 197 feet, which would be about right adding some mast height. Remember that KEIF-LP 104.7 lost its license for being on this building, too high for an LPFM (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1758 monitoring: confirmed on WRMI 7570 & 15770, Friday January 30 at 2130:33. Next:
Sat 0730 & 1530 on Hamburger Lokalradio 7265-CUSB
Sat 1000 on WRMI 5850
Sun 0231 on KVOH 9975
Sun 2300 on WRMI 11580

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
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7489.88 approx., UT Sat Jan 31 at 0100, `Allan Weiner Worldwide` on WBCQ and 31 seconds delayed on 5109.81 approx., but 9330 is not on (nor 15420). I listen during the next half hour and note the following from what he says, first confirming my observations of better signals on 7490v and 5110v: the ``new 7490 signal is super-modulated at widest bandwidth``; 5110 is also ``high-fidelitigh``, which is another way of saying no longer compatible USB only, ``as we rebuild our main exciter``. So I guess these are not totally new transmitters?

Allan in a sad mood also goes on to lament people who have been ``lost`` in the past year: Jim Cedarstrom of Money Talks, but his heirs continue the program with some reruns; Ed Bolton, in late November/early December for ``evil and bad reasons``. Earlier, Michael Ketter almost 10 years ago; Allan`s wife Jennifer a year and a half ago; Bill Cooper.

Video from (Florida) studio is also being webcast via U-screen, and Dr Becker called to say it`s also via
http://wbcq.tv  Allan says he is not goofing off in Florida, but now you can run a radio station from anywhere with a smart phone and that is what he does. Just look at the weather in Monticello by searching on ZIP 04760! Kudos to his staff back in Maine who keep it going, for not much pay as ``all`` income goes to the electric power company, taxes, etc.

Also at the SW site are MW & FM stations. WBCQ FM 94.7 is ``Kix FM``, with classic country not from a syndicator but programmed by Jason & Tom. Says in 1981 he and first wife Sarah had owned WOZI 101.7 in Presque Isle, how as a rocker he didn`t know anything about country but was persuaded to put such a format on it.

Later a caller wanted to supply a program on cassette tape, but Allan said that`s not possible any longer, as everything has to be on a computer audio file; then relented, that if really necessary, they`d take a tape and then convert it. Also could one do a monthly show instead of weekly? Yes, but subject to time being sold to a weekly (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** U S A. 7505.36 approx., Jan 31 at 0207, WRNO is on with ID interrupting preacher, and OK modulation but always off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Jan 30 at 1913 UT, only 41 minutes after local mean noon, I find a good & steady signal from WGN 720. Winter daytime skywave is in play. I`m driving away from neighborhood and household noise sources, so in central Enid I keep driving until pervasive line noise and plasma screens are minimal, parking first by a warehouse near the intersexion of Walnut & Jefferson. No DFing on the caradio with vertical whip. Here`s what I log in the next quarter-hour:

720, Jan 30 at 1913 UT, good & steady signal from WGN Chicago, almost 700 miles. Under very quiet conditions even in the summer I can sometimes pull it by groundwave, but this is much stronger. Talkhost is discussing wings and football games, mentions Órion Samuelson in passing.

710, Jan 30 at 1914 UT, Rush with some CCI and a low audible het! Surely the latter is not from the part-time off-frequency Chihuahuan? Rush is KGNC Amarillo, normal dominant on GW, not KCMO Kansas City which is in Dave Ramsey.

670, Jan 30 at 1915 UT, CCI between sports talk and another station. Sports must be WSCR Chicago, but as also on rare groundwave it`s considerably weaker than WGN. Other station is KLTT Denver which normally reaches here barely on GW.

(WBBM 780 and WLS 890 are blocked by Okies and 670 is bothered by splash from 640 Moore. BTW, I keep mistyping its call: once recently as KWPM as in Moore, but it`s really KWPN as in Norman; or since it`s a Sports Animal, ``We Program Nonsense``!)

570, Jan 30 at 1916 UT, WNAX ID and Accuweather for Yankton SD, clearly audible under KLIF Dallas. WNAX is always there on GW, but skywave may be helping a bit now. SAH counted as 212 per minute or 3.53 Hz.

760, Jan 30 at 1917, KCCV Overland Park/Kansas City religion has unID CCI. Could it be 50 kW non-direxional WJR Detroit? 50 kW KKZN Thornton (Denver) is half as far, but day pattern westward, null eastward, and rare here at any time. Arkansas station unlikely on GW, poor conductivity that way.

850, Jan 30 at 1918 UT, Rush. That would be KOA Denver, which per
http://www.850koa.com/cc-common/rushlimbaugh/
just started airing him live this month with the proviso that he will be pre-empted for any sillyballgames on weekday afternoons. KOA can barely reach here on GW but better now, and no sign of the Texan.

1000, Jan 30 at 1919 UT, KTOK OKC, talker is strong as usual, but I can hear something under it, unusual. Since Chicago is in on 670 & 720, I suspect WMVP, which has a lopsided day pattern favoring east, but considerable west too. There`s nothing on 1000 between here and Chicago. Sioux Falls beams NW away from us.

1060, Jan 30 at 1919 UT, station in English with fast SAH from another. Probably KIJN Farwell TX the off-frequency one so obvious at night, and KRCN Denver. KIJN could be GW, but KRCN may need skywave.

1100, Jan 30 at 1920 UT, Rush. Certainly not my closest, KKLL Webb City (Joplin) MO which is religious and barely reaches on GW. NRC AM Log shows him on three 50 kW ND stations: WTAM Cleveland OH, KNZZ Grand Junxion CO, and WZFG Dilworth MN (Fargo). My first choice would be WTAM, city to city 1509 km or 938 miles. All three stations` websites confirm Rush still on live, the other two with super-patriotic hype branding.

1120, Jan 30 at 1921 UT, KEOR Tulsa/Catoosa/Sperry is *still* open carrier dead air, but KMOX St Louis can be heard under it. That takes skywave over poor-conductivity Ozarx.

As I tune up the band, encounter some heavy noise on 1200, so move a few blox to another location near the intersexion of Maple & Madison:

1360, Jan 30 at 1924 UT, EWTN station with a low audible het I heard before at Vance, so seems it`s really there, indicating one of: KPHN El Dorado KS, or KDJW Amarillo TX is considerably off-frequency. If I could get enough signal on the DX-398, I could determine which, by BFO and DFing. May have to do it around SRS or SSS.

1450, Jan 30 at 1925 UT, ``your musical portfolio, live and in color, KGFF``. There`s a unique slogan from Shawnee OK groundwave. Quite a feat, since I thought AM radio was only in black & white. Woodward`s KSIW is about the same distance, and you never know which one or both will be in, but KGFF wins at the moment.

1540, Jan 30 at 1925 UT, ``1540 KXEL`` ID from Waterloo IA, poor with SAH, but definitely there by skywave already, during 50 kW ND pattern. Otherstation probably Kansas.

1690, Jan 30 at 1927 UT, sounds like Disney music, and YL announcer at 1928 UT giving a phone number including 7056. Would that be R. Disney 800 number? It`s not the individual phone of KDDZ Arvada CO as in NRC AM Log, nor would I expect talker WVON Chicago to be doing this unless the music was just a break/liner.

Aha, finally found on R. Disney website this: ``Radio Disney offers several forms of contest / sweepstakes: Call-In: The Radio Disney toll - free phone number for call - in entries is 1 - 877 - 870 - 5678. Changes to the toll - free number will be announced on - air.`` So it`s KDDZ which hasn`t been sold yet. Of course, it has to be skywave at this daypart and distance at top end.

I could have done better at a quieter rural location. If I can pull away, I should go out and try that tomorrow a little earlier during the noon hour, as winter midday skywave will soon be a pastthing, with solar zenith advancing degree by degree empowering D-layer absorption (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 860, UT Sat Jan 31 at 0156 UT, from Pittsburg KS, KKOW ID during silly ballgame, during which its signal has been unreasonably strong at night. So suspect an HSFB STA is in effect, 10 kW ND, instead of 5 kW direxional; we do get it at night on the broad SW pattern away from Toronto, but this is really dominant (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 870, Jan 31 at 0140 UT in WWL null, Vietnamese and a SAH, so 1 kW direxional daytimer KFJZ Fort Worth is on way late again. It peaks at 0148 UT such that I can hear it without even nulling WWL (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 880, Jan 31 at 0133 UT I have nulled KRVN Lexington NE to find music and announcements in Spanish, so keep checking this frequency, but no more of that; KRVN is covering a sillyballgame involving the Cozad Cornhuskers.

Instead in KRVN null at 0152 UT a song in English, ``What a wonderful time of the year`` left over from Xmas; suspect KHAC Tse Bonito NM, so I compare USB to LSB on the DX-398, and yes, it`s not on LSB; network news headlines at 0155, also habitual of KHAC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 880, Jan 31 at 0133 with KRVN nulled, a Spanish station after music announcing ``más tropical, más variedad``. Of the Mexicans, the closest format match in the IRCA Mexican log is XEEM in Rio Verde, San Luís Potosí. However, it and KRVN are close to opposite direxions from here. Anyhow, I asked them on their contact form,
http://www.radiomasem.com/contacto.html
``Esta noche del viernes escuchaba en 880 a una emisora con música y a las 7:33 hora del centro, dijeron ``Más tropical, Más variedad". Quisiera saber si es un reclamo de XEEM?``

Not much more of this in KRVN null, with KHAC taking over (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 960, Jan 31 at 0130 UT, as local KGWA is covering a silly ballgame, I find I can null it very precisely with the DX-398 flat on an easel, to hear a musical station also making a fast SAH.     Slow romantic song by YL in English, maybe Celine Dion but not her titanic hit; 0132 & 0137 segúes, classic rock, all at slow pace. KGWA SBG includes long pauses which help; must not be much of a crowd at the game. I hope for an ID at 0200 UT from the understation, but it`s XEK in Spanish: see MEXICO, immediately followed by a PSA for veterans by American Legion in English: hard to believe it was from the same station, altho possibly XEK was playing tunes in English like some Mexicans do (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Glenn Hauser logs January 29-30, 2015

** AUSTRALIA. 9580, 5995, 5940, Jan 30 at 1358, RA with jazz music, presumably fill after Fidler talk show, 1359.5 promo for `Between the Lines` on RN, Sundays at 10 am [UT Saturdays 2300], 1400 switch to Triple J.

Less than 24 hours left for the old 6-transmitter Radio Australia; from 1300 Jan 31, cut to only 3, fortunately retaining 9580 USward at 09-21. Broadcast Australia, Shepparton, could still rent out the extras, but has no way of accessing live feeds other than via satellite, says Keith Perron (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11710, Jan 30 at 0619, second-order spur from RNA/RNB 11780.1v is audible here 70 kHz down, crackling away, weaker than first-orders 35 kHz away around 11745 and 11815, but can`t hear a match on 11850. 11710 will of course QRM neighbor RAE Argentina earlier in evenings, but what do they care? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 9200, Jan 30 at 1457, CNR1 jammer, fair, off after 1500. Per Aoki, the excuse for 9200 is the possibility of a 100-watt Sound of Hope nuisance transmitter on Taiwan any time between 2054 and 1600, which presumably just went off too. No search for more up to 19 MHz, but doubt the higher bands were propagating from East Jammerstan today (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) CHINA [non]. See CUBA

** CUBA. 9570, Jan 30 at 1400, CRI English relay supposed to be over now, but still going, opening CRI News. I quickly check the next frequency, 15700 and it is already on plus hum, so these are two separate transmitters, confirmed with two receivers, both heard at once briefly until 15700 crashes from 1401* to *1402 resuming. Recheck at 1532, Paul says it`s :35 minutes past the hour! amid bigger hum.

15230, Jan 30 at 1534, open carrier/dead air, usual weak but steady signal, presumably RHC supposed to be on until 1600 like 15370 which is nominal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9935, Jan 30 at 0617, ERTOpen is motorboating here but clear on stronger // 9420 in Greek (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN. 13570, Jan 30 at 1529, Qur`an-like singing, fair signal vs CODAR, 1530 three chimes and news theme, Arabic ID for VIRI. It`s Kamalabad at 1020-1700 per Aoki, 259 degrees with 500 kW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 9400, Jan 30 at 1440, via PRIDNESTROVYE, ``Denge Kurdistane`` ID amid Kurdish vocal music concert, much stronger than adjacent 9395 Global 24 apparently with NHK relay. At 1455, fast SAH starts on 9400 from some other station, 1459 unID music modulation mixing. DK does not start talking until 1503. By 1526 final check, not much is left. Nothing to account for this in Aoki or EiBi, but HFCC shows a registration from Spaceline in Sofia, Bulgaria on 9400 both before and after 1500 with DRM in English (and this is not DRM).

I also try this on
http://shortwave.am Entering 9400, it also brings up all adjacent 9395 and 9405 listings, and starts searching before all the blanx are filled in, i.e. the exact time, lacking a GO button. Nothing else here on 9400 other than FEBC until 1400*. I suspect it is the Bulgarian transmitter, known to test this and that on 9400 without notice. Could even be another relay of Denge Kurdistane. Nothing recently from Ivo Ivanov about 9400, but I expect he`ll be looking into it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. Another minor winter sporadic-E opening, but we value any and all of them: analog channel A2, Jan 30 at 0026 UT, antenna still stuck south, weak video CCI and traces of audio, but can`t be sure it`s in Spanish. 6m Es map shows multiple paths crossing somewhere between Little Rock and Memphis, so not ideal for Mexico to here, but estimated MUF 58 MHz i.e. enough to propagate channel 2 video, just like I am getting. At 0059 it`s a bit stronger, enough to clearly see the Azteca 7 big bug number in the upper-right corner, during a movie/drama, so it`s likely the common XHTAU in Tampico, Tamaulipas. How much longer will it remain in analog on 2? Time is running out. And this opening soon fades tho I leave ch 2 on for a few hours more (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. Digital cable channel 59, via Suddenlink here in Enid has been activated as of Jan 29, encountered Jan 30 at 1515 UT with something labeled EL REY, so is it in Spanish? No, playing Miami Vice after Miami Vice in original English. Checking TVGuide online skeds for it, lots of M.V., other action movies and old series, and lots of infomercial time. What a waste. Logobug in LR is a crooked golden crown.

``El Rey (TV network) El Rey (Spanish for The King) is an English language American television channel targeting Latino audiences. Launched by Robert Rodríguez in 2013 in a deal with Univisión, it is available on Comcast, DirecTV, Time Warner Cable, Cox Communications and Dish Network``, says the top search hit.

Suddenlink has also moved BBC America from high tier to DCC 76, extended basic. Too bad that spends so much time on lowbrow stuff, Star Trek reruns, etc., too little news, rather than current BBC TV fare as in the UK. But I suppose we`ll get to see the next series of Dr Who from Wales ASAP, which would be when? (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SUDAN [non]. 15555, Jan 30 at 1532, open carrier/dead air from SMG VATICAN site instead of scheduled R. Dabanga at 1530-1627. Recheck at 1536 the transmitter is off, gave up? Who is to blame for such outages? R. Dabanga studio? Common carrier, satellite? feed to VR? Master control in the Vatican? ST link to SMG? Or SMG itself? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TIBET [non]. 15525, Jan 30 at 1406, V. of Tibet via MADAGASCAR fair, so with BFO I wait for it to jump to 15530, which it does a few seconds after 1407. Are they still faking out the ChiCom jammers with this tactic? None audible on either, before or after 1407 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1758 monitoring: no show at 2201 UT Thursday Jan 29 on Global 24 via WRMI 9395: instead, `Dialogos Greece`, scheduled at 21-22 Thursdays, keeps on playing past 2200 with commentary, 2204 music; just running late bumping us? Or permanent change? No explanation received from station. After 2230, `Blues Radio International` is playing as usual; WOR 1758 does appear at next scheduled time, UT Friday Jan 30 at 0001:10 on 9395, fair. Next:

Fri 2130 on WRMI 7570 & 15770
Sat 0730 & 1530 on Hamburger Lokalradio 7265-CUSB
Sat 1000 on WRMI 5850

Wed 2200 on WBCQ 7490v
Wed 2201 on Global 24 via WRMI 9395
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, Friday Jan 30 at 1535, YL with testimonio en Spanish, not `Frecuencia al Día` which I was expecting to hear, but current KVOH schedule shows `Luis Palau Responde`, then 1600-1630 Fri & Mon for FaD. I check link to
http://programasdx.com/frecuencialdia_horarios.htm
and find outdated info there, claiming KVOH time is 1500-1530, which would be the DST/summer timing barring any further changes. Also wrong time on WBCQ, which changed several weeks ago (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1480, Jan 30 at 1410 UT, music, into YL with news headlines, weather from Newschannel 3, several IDs as ``AM 14-80 WBBP``, atop the CCI; this time employing the FRG-7 with east-west longwire mainly for SW. WBBP is in Memphis TN, day power 5 kW ND, format UC:GOS per NRC AM Log. Radio-locator puts the site cross SW of Memphis bullseye but still east of the River, i.e. really in TN. It`s over a semihour past local sunrise here in Enid, yet upper-band skywave still in from the east; in fact, WLAC 1510 Nashville ID still audible at 1427 UT vs the het from Independence (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1680, Jan 30 at 1418 UT, C&W music, two live DJs discuss event in Mississippi, 1422 UT mattress ad ``right here in Monroe, tell them ---- from K-104 sent you`` [for a kickback?]. K-104 refers to KJLO-FM, 97 kW in Monroe LA, so must be simulcast now with 1680 KRJO, not mentioned as such either in the WTFDA FM database nor in the NRC AM Log (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VATICAN [and non]. 15770-15775-15780, Jan 30 at 1531, QRDRM to the BS on 15770 WRMI, i.e. Vatican Radio as scheduled 1530-1600 in English due eastward from SMG for the huge DRM audience in S Asia, but as usual plenty signal leaking here to the northwest (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also SUDAN [non]

Glenn Hauser logs January 29, 2015

** AFGHANISTAN [non]. 12075, Jan 29 at 1451, SW Asian pop music reminiscent of what R. Sohl used to play, since this is also for Afghanistan, good signal, 1500 ID as Radio Ashná, and habari. HFCC shows IBB via Woofferton UK in Pashto & Persian (= Dari) at 1430-1530 (also 1330-1430 via Biblis, Germany and Aoki clarifies that this hour is R. Azadi = Free Afghanistan). 12075 fits neatly between the two Radio Australias on 12065 and 12085, both of which will continue in Feb at 09-21 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11745 & 11815 approx., Jan 29 at 0644, poor level crackling spurs matching musical modulation peaks on fundamental 11780.1v of RNA/RNB. Yes, this is tiresome; but only when they stop transmitting them, shall I stop logging them (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6060, Jan 29 at 0636, RHC is in Spanish instead of English on this frequency only, with usual LAH, presumably off-frequency Brasil, SRDA Curitiba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15700, Jan 29 at 1417, CRI English relay continues, with usual dirty signal. Now that there are two of these blasting in on 19m, along with RHC 15370 both until 1600, if the transmitters & antennas are physically close enough, leapfrog mixing products should be possible on 15040 and 16030, but none audible yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9935, Jan 29 at 0642, ERTOpen in Greek, motorboating but readable, // stronger 9420. With BFO, 9935 carrier is obviously wobbling rapidly (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN [non]. 12005, Jan 29 at 1449, R. Farda ID and pop music. 13615, Jan 29 at 1454, here`s another R. Farda, about one second ahead of 12005; both good with deep fading. Per HFCC, on Jan 12, 12005 usage changed starting at 1430: had been Lampertheim, Germany; now it`s due east from Woofferton UK with 300 kW until 1730, also replacing Biblis at 1530-1730. 13615 remains Lampertheim, GERMANY (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN. 6055, Jan 29 at 1352, R. Nikkei I with usual English lesson on Thursdays, starting Grades 3 and 4, on theme: elexions. Apparently presented entirely in (American) English; fair signal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN. 6135, Thu Jan 29 at 1354, atop SAH but no jamming audible, weekly English; 1355 ``Shiokaze - Sea Breeze from Tokyo, Japan``; lengthy closing from 1356 with contact info spelled out, including P O Box 222, Tokyo CPO.

And also plugs special broadcast on 15740 in Feb; did not copy details now but previous info in Aoki was: Furusato no Kaze Specials, Sat Feb 14 at 0700-0930; and Sun Feb 15 at 0400-0630, both in Japanese, 100 kW, 2 degrees from Tamsui District, Taiwan (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 105.5, Jan 29 at 1415 UT, K288FX North Enid is back on the air again today, blocking 105.7 KROU. When I was getting KROU, and KWOU 88.1 Woodward, found the latter to be behind by about one satellite delay (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1758 monitoring: confirmed Thursday Jan 29 at 1330 on WRMI 9955, good with no jamming. Next:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1480, Jan 29 at 1344 UT, Spanish ad for AutoLite in dólares, another for Goodwill, so obviously a US station, CCI from KQAM Wichita in English about 4 Hz away. Probably the closest one, KCZZ Mission KS (Kansas City), 1000/500 watts U4, a Radio Luz, i.e. religious. Close to same direxion as Wichita but somewhat separable.

Per NRC AM Log, all the other US SS on 1480 are much further, in CA, FL, FL, ID, MI, SC, VA, VA, WA, WI, PR. Madison WI might be possible, but day pattern goes NW, nite pattern NE. KCCZ day pattern goes east, nite southeast. KQAM aims westward day & nite which explains its less than strong signal here to the SSW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1520, Jan 29 at 1341 UT, KOKC is on, but with tough CCI in English mentioning Hong Kong, ``program from G&E Studios``. It`s KYND Cypress (Houston) TX, almost the same angle as OKC from here, making usual slow SAH just after sunrise. Streema.com explains,

``KYND is a broadcast radio station in Cypress, Texas, United States. As part of G&E Studio, KYND provides Chinese Entertainment, and News and Talk shows about China to the Houston, Texas area, with content from EasyFM, an English-language broadcast radio station from China Radio International (CRI), Beijing, China``.

So G&E is a front organization for the ChiCom. What does it stand for? Here`s more about it and the several other cities where it operates out of HQ in West Covina CA:
http://gestudio.us/index.php/en/radio-network/houston

Same programming is on 1540 KGBC Galveston, but not audible now with KXEL dominant on day pattern. They also run KXYZ 1320 in Houston, but in Chinese language; I wonder how much if any of that is locally originated (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1530, Jan 29 at 0654 UT, listing gospel musical or worship events in Little Rock and several other Arkansas cities, losing out to CCI in Spanish, with medium SAH. NRC AM Log shows the AR station here is supposed to be a daytimer! KVDW, England AR, 2500 watts D1, UC:GOS/REL format, // 100.9 translator as ``Victory 1530`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 970, Jan 29 at 1334 UT, Spanish music and announcements, losing out to English, probably Tulsa. NRC AM Log shows of the 51 USA stations on 970, the only SS is WNNR Jacksonville FL, 1 kW, so not possibly thence. Could XEJ Juárez be back? Not up to the level it used to attain around sunrise, so maybe another XE. Seems to peak roughly from the southwest (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6165, Jan 29 at 1320, SE Asian(?) music with pileup of at least 3 stations, SAHs. Aoki listings show all these on the air now: AIR Delhi in Sindhi; CNR6 Beijing in Chinese; Myanmar Rakhine in Burmese; Voice of Vietnam 4 in Hmong. At least we can rule out Zambia and Chad due to propagation and probably also inactivity. This must make an even more horrible mess in Asia (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Glenn Hauser logs January 28-29, 2015

** ALBANIA. 7465, Jan 28 at 0048, R. Tirana, Albanian song, poor, but no longer any QRM from WRMI 7455, as the 00-01 programming has been moved to 11580, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** AUSTRALIA. Sorry, I continue to belatedly spot some errors, which must be corrected [minor obvious spelling ones of words I just fix in DXLD compilation if in time, or maybe in archive]: 13630, not 13600 as first written; fixed:

11945 is one of many frequencies RA will be dumping as of February 1, but has been quite reliable here during this hour. Tonight [Jan 23] also // stronger 13630 and weaker 15240. RA may be phasing out some of these early, as not always audible, or is it just propagation? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** AUSTRALIA. 9580, also // much weaker 9475, 6150, 5955, 5950, very pleased to hear some intelligent talk rather than `Triple J Unearthed` pop music on RA, Wed Jan 28 at 1323. JJJ had been starting at 1300 weekdays. This turns out to be `Conversations with Richard Fidler` (long I), as IDed at 1331, guest discussion also before an audience about ``faking it on stage``.

Said it was his first show of 2015y, so just back from summer break. (Jan seems to be the major holiday month DU, instead of Feb (=Aug in northern hem)). 1400 outro ID as on ABCRN, no news, and now switch to Triple J. Online sked now shows Fidler M-F at 13-14, and also Tue-Fri at 00-01 UT when we might hear it on 19000 for a few more days, next week on 17840 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1758, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11745 & 11815, Jan 28 at 0112, crackling spurs from 11780.1v RNA/RNB are audible. Also Jan 28 at 0632 the crackles are audible but very poorly (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11935, Jan 28 at 0113, `RB2 fair with singing and // much weaker 6040, but nothing on 9725 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9570, Jan 28 at 1323 check, CRI English relay is still here, not moved to 13 MHz; and presumably the preceding hour in Cantonese too.

15700, Jan 28 at 1503 check, CRI English via CUBA remains here still with some hum, distortion and splattering plus/minus 15 kHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1758, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CYPRUS [non]. 9955, Wed Jan 28 at 1414 just before WORLD OF RADIO on WRMI, `European News Network` announces that from this coming Saturday [Jan 31] the weekly 1845 broadcast will be on 5905, ex-5925. Secret site for that is BULGARIA per Ivo Ivanov, and IIRC, they were going to make such a move several weeks ago but it did not ensue. Reason: collision with Iran`s Albanian service. Presumably HFCC`s list on 5905 for Voice of Russia DRM in German is totally imaginary (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 7425, Jan 28 at 0053, CRI English, then translating Chinese, poor-fair, site? Kashgar, 100 kW at 174 degrees, this hour only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. Re: ``KOREA NORTH. 11645, Jan 26 at 1505, humwhine on poor carrier, no other modulation audible. Aoki shows VOK in Arabic, so probably that, altho HFCC also has a wooden(?) registration for Pakistan in Urdu, quite capable of similar noise (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)``

Open carrier/dead air of ERTOpen on 11645 from 1200 till 1520. Change to 9935 at 1700 UT. Videos will be uploaded later today -- 73! (Ivo Ivanov, QTH: Sofia, Bulgaria, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

So that was probably it; 11645/9935 bear the defective Avlis transmitter (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9420 Jan 28 at 0055, ERTOpen with Greek music, very good // somewhat weaker 9935, the latter with whinebuzz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 1650, Jan 28 at 0100 UT, CBS News from KYHN, but checking 1120 KMOX, not //, 0104 UT KMOX already back to local while KYHN has another minute of national news (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 105.5, Jan 28 at 0122 UT, K288FX North Enid is back on the air, shux, and // weaker 88.9 KYLV OKC. So much for temporary access to 105.7 KROU Spencer/OKC, public radio from the University of Oklahoma. Unshux: next day, from 1522 UT and all day and evening Jan 28-29, K288FX is off again and KROU is in again.

Manipulating a portable antenna, I am hearing two weak stations on 105.5, besides KGFY Stillwater, perhaps KWCO-FM, 3.3 kW in Chickasha [attn non-Okies: pronounced CHICK-uh-SHAY] (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU [non]. 5980, Jan 28 at 0048, JBA carrier, maybe two of them. Have not checked for Chaski cutoff since January 21 when it happened at 0107:23*. So it should be approx. 0108:18 now after a week. But remonitoring continuously from 0107, no cutoff now until 0109:23.5* so that does not fit --- then it comes back on about a second later! and still on at 0111, so this time I suspect it is the otherstation, BBC via UAE which merely had a brief transmitter outage; so Chaski either reset to earlier closing, or not on at all or not propagating (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SRI LANKA [and non]. 11905, Jan 28 at *0114:10, SLBC`s big carrier cuts on atop a very weak one on earlier, presumably CNR Beijing site from 0100 per HFCC, but which does *not* include SLBC here! Many `CLN` entries for IBB at IRA and various users of TRM, but nothing for SLBC itself on 11905, 11750 or 9720, where WRTH has them also using the Trincomalee site.

WRTH does say the 0115-0130 segment seven days a week is in Bengali, 0130- Hindi, maybe English. Aoki continues to show 0115 Bengali, except Thu & Fri when it`s Hindi already, and this is Wednesday. Anyhow, dead air continues past the off-time signal I was expecting to hear well past 0115, until finally at 0119:04 South Asian songs cut on in one language or another. This has a very good signal level, but with trans-polar flutter. Aoki shows half-power, 125 kW at 345 degrees which is pretty good for us (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1757 monitoring: confirmed UT Wed Jan 28 at 0401 on Global 24 webcast and presumably via WRMI, 9395. Also confirmed from 1415 UT Wednesday on WRMI 9955. Ed Insinger confirmed the Wed 2201 on G24 via WRMI 9395.

WORLD OF RADIO 1758 monitoring: confirmed first broadcast UT Thu Jan 29 at 0430 on WRMI 9955, very poor, but L&C on webcast. Next:
Thu 1330 on WRMI 9955
Thu 2201 on Global 24 via WRMI 9395
Fri 0001 on Global 24 via WRMI 9395

Wed 2201 on Global 24 via WRMI 9395
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7455, Jan 28 at 0042, WRMI no longer here during this hour, just RTTY, but open carrier over it on from 0054 before TruNews from 0100. For a few weeks at 00-01 UT, 7455 had carried System D of other programming including a repeat of Ukrainian Radio English at 0030-0100, in addition to 2330-2400 on 11580. Now I find that too is moved onto 11580, UR English at 0030; while 5850 continues to carry R. Slovakia International in English at 0030. The WRMI online schedule has been partially updated to show this. This means that the Albanian hour from R. Tirana on 7465 no longer suffers from 7455 splash, since it ends at 0100 (Glenn Hauser, WORLD OF RADIO 1758, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490, Jan 28 at 0047, WBCQ is on with VG signal, conversation; nothing on 5110 now. So 7490 transmitter is not snowed out. Generally stronger signals make me suspect a new unit is in service. OTOH, at 0054, 7490- is still slightly on the lo side like the old one (or sometimes on the hi side, rarely right-on) (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1758, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, Jan 28 at 0630, WTWW-2 has finally come back to life after missing for several days --- and now Ted has decided to fill it with marathon reruns of his QSO ham radio show, now interviewing someone with hum and excessive down-in-a-barrel reverb. Also at 1416 Jan 28, day frequency 9930 is again/still QSOing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1420, Jan 28 at 1344 UT tune-in, ID in passing foro KBTN, C&W music, fading, along with slow SAH and hum. KBTN is 1/0.5 kW U2 in Neosho MO, not that far away in the SW corner; logged once before, May 26, 2012 at 1144 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VATICAN. 3975, Jan 28 at 0633, VR is on again, with same (very) old Latin rote stuff, clear here while colliding with CFRX on // 6070 (but Vatican usually atop even here: 350 to 1 power ratio helps) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 774, Jan 28 at 1334, JBA carrier, presumed NHK from the northwest; no other lowbanders audible, nor 1566 Korea South. Enid sunrise: 1336 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4937.2-USB, Jan 28 at 0045, 2-way in Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Glenn Hauser logs January 26-27, 2015

** BRAZIL. 11745 & 11815, Jan 27 at 0624, crackling spurs from 11780.1v RNA/RNB are weakly audible, now centered closer to mid-channels (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA [and non]. Re collisions with CFRX, 6070, I meant to say A-15 HFCC, not B-15 quite yet! Corrected:

In A-15 HFCC [not including North Korea, Brasil, etc.] registered conflicts will continue to be the 25 kW ROB, Germany, 24 hours; Vatican Latin at 0530-0615 (hour earlier than now) and also 2040-2100 in Arabic; and IBB São Tomé at 2000-2030 daily in French. CFRX is not registered, nor are CBC on 6160 & 6160, nor anything on that frequency. I vaguely recall that before its demise, RCI would courteously register the other Canadians (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15700, Jan 27 at 1408, CRI English relay, discussing horible prison conditions in Heilongjiang; is still here for a second day, ex-13740. No ICDs today, but big hum; wiggle that patchcord! 1508 recheck, now awful bigger hum surges and recedes; also splatters from 15680 to 15715, edging against 15720 NHK via Madagascar in Hindi from 1430.

Maybe the Cubans did not want to move from 13 to 15 MHz as originally planned last summer, because they knew the transmitter couldn`t take it, and they were right. Still need to check whether 9570 is still on at 12-14 instead of 13 MHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9420, Jan 26 at 2157, ERTOpen is on in Greek // weaker 9935
15630, Jan 27 at 1508, Greek talk, fair with echo
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH. 2850, Jan 27 at 1319, very poor signal in Korean; so KCBS is making it, while no TP carriers are, inside the MWBC band. 3480 clandestine is stronger to poor level (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 1570, Jan 27 at 0608 UT, XERF is playing what must be the state song, after the national anthem. I keep trying to hear Coahuila mentioned in the lyrix, but do not. Yet it`s frequently repeated per:
http://parrascoah.mx.tripod.com/himnocoahuilense.htm
0610 on to full ID for AM and FM (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA [non]. 11580, Tue Jan 27 at 0556 check, WRMI is VG tonight and back to BS, singing, instead of Hamada Radio International relay as heard last week, so I ask Jeff White: ``Hi Jeff, Could you please explain what`s going on with Hamada Radio International. Last week we were hearing it at 0530-0600 UT on 11580, but last night it`s back to TOM. I can`t find anything about this on your website. A test? If not on WRMI, is it going to be active again via MBR, and if so when and where? Glenn``

And he replies Jan 27: ``Hamada was a test on WRMI for one week. It's on from Media Broadcast [Nauen, GERMANY] 0530-0600 on 7350 and 1930-2000 on 11865. The 1930 bc is Mon-Fri; 0530 is 7 days a week. Jeff``

Jeff, Tnx, however, the two broadcasts you mention are not in current B-14 skeds from HFCC, Aoki or EiBi, so are you sure they are currently active? Or maybe just restarted, if so, when? They were listed in A-14. I`ve yet to check either by monitoring. And Jeff re-replies:

``Yes they are active. Just recently activated, started January 19. Jeff`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. Earthquake shook WOR HQ computer screen and chair, Jan 27 at 1558:55 UT. USGS says it was 4.0, 19 km S of Medford (i.e. toward Enid), 3.0 km deep at 1558:40. As usual, several seconds earlier. If the times ever match, I suppose it will be a direct hit (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1120, Jan 26 at 1557-1600+ UT on caradio, KEOR Catoosa/Sperry/Tulsa, is *still* open carrier/dead air. Also at another check 2138 UT. And still OC/DA by 2011 UT Jan 27. Is the management so out of it, they don`t even know they are burning kW for nothing over a few days now? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1650, Jan 27 at 1330 UT, ``ABC Sports Radio update``; why do we need this when we have various ESPNs? 1333 UT, joining Radio Oklahoma Network for ag news, but first an ad for a bank in Sallisaw and Fort Smith [AR], so it`s KYHN. Some SS CCI presumably El Paso (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 105.5, Jan 26 at 2112 UT, one of my wildest dreams has come true. The local Enid translator is off the air!

This allows OU`s public radio station on 105.7, KROU Spencer OK to be audible inside Enid, at least on the caradio; some picket-fencing, but usable, now during the BBC news hour.

On 105.5 itself there is now a weak signal from Stillwater, at 2141 UT Jan 26 ID as ``Cowboy Country 105.5``. That`s KGFY with 4.2 kW ERP. It has ACI from 105.3 KINB Kingfisher; hard to believe it`s only 930 watts.

105.5 in North Enid is, or was: K288FX, 250 watt translator of Educational Media Foundation, a national gospel-huxter front. Tho COL is North Enid (why??), site is Broadway Tower in downtown plain old Enid, along with several other FM relays, and KXOK RF 31 & 32 [q.v.]. 105.5 antenna height AGL is allegedly 60 meters. It`s still off at 1615 and 2011 UT chex Jan 27; may it ever be. WTFDA database says 105.5 was relaying 88.9 OKC KYLV, K-Love. BTW, the Broadway Tower is looking more and more like a white elephant, besides an antenna platform: it`s still not open as an hotel to replace an office building.

As I wrote KGOU HQ station, have you finally complained to the FCC about this mere translator interfering with KROU, to get rid of it, or is it just a breakdown and may come back?

Afternoon of Jan 27, this reply comes from KGOU/KROU: ``Hi Glenn, Good to hear from you; I hope you are doing well. Sorry to say that the 105.5 FM translator may just be down for repairs or something. Their license is still good -- the Educational Media Foundation.

As for 105.7 FM from Alva -- I looked it up. Seems an owner from California has obtained a construction permit for the frequency, and he has until this coming June to get it built and on the air. KRDR-FM will be the name. It will operate at 50 kW, should get into North Enid just fine. Sigh.

We don't have a leg to stand on at the FCC with regard to the 105.5 FM translator. KROU is not supposed to get there in the first place so we can't argue that it cuts KROU off. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
My best to you! (Karen Holp | General Manager, KGOU Radio | Chair, StateImpact Oklahoma/The Oklahoma Public Media Exchange | The University of Oklahoma Outreach | Copeland Hall, Room 300, Norman, OK  73019`` (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. Check of KXOK-LD, Jan 27 at 2115 UT: NO signal on main RF channel 31. But RF 32 is active, as 31-1 with KXOK  PSIP black and silent; 31-2 with color bars, silence, and M-FOX PSIP. But nothing on 31-3 which was formerly color bars labeled Azteca. Or rather there is a `bad` weaker signal on 31-3 which does not decode. How could that be any different from 31-2?

RF32 transmitter is the intercity relay WQOS306, which is hardly needed, since there is no programming! Would you believe that online skeds still continue to imagine KXOK is with Retro TV, gone for more than a year? (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3905, Jan 27 at 1323, JBA carrier detectable vs LSB hams, presumably Kavieng still on; had just checked 90m and found none (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SUDAN [non]. 15555, Jan 27 at 1455, open carrier/dead air from SMG VATICAN, prior to 1459 opening R. Tamazuj. Good signal today and far enough from 15555 WJHR-USB, but even better, very good on // 15400, also SMG.

What accounts for such a disparity? Both are registered 250 kW only 11 degrees apart, 139 and 150 degrees, but radically? different antennas per HFCC, 616 and a 216, respectively 15400 and [ex]-15550. Key shows:
216 AHR(S)4/4/0.5
616 EHR(S)4/4/0.5
So everything`s the same except for A and E, which means what?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1757 monitoring (correct number, despite some typos previously): confirmed on Global 24 via WRMI 9395, Monday Jan 26 at 2201:49, sufficient, following ConnectorZone ad, ID and a semi-minute of Feature Story News headlines. Also confirmed just after 1200 UT Tuesday Jan 27 on WRMI 9955, when I was momentarily awake: good signal. Next:
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
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15420, Jan 27 at 2005, no signal from WBCQ, tho all other US outlets on 19m are well audible: 15555, 15610, 15730, 15770, 15825. 15420 is scheduled 18-22 UT with `Global Spirit Proclamation`. Can there ever be too much snow upon Monticello to stay on the air? Check 9330, 7490, 5110 later today. Meanwhile, Allan basks in Florida, hi (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, Jan 27 at 1420, KVOH is a JBA carrier; about 1430 it starts to build up and only takes a few minutes to reach very good daytime level (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9930, Jan 27 at 2008, WTWW-2 remains off whenever checking, such as now, or 5085 at night, while 1 & 3 are active on 9475, 12105 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 760, Jan 27 at 1341 UT, nulling KCCV Overland Park KS and thus getting rid of fast SAH, the otherstation is playing praise music, 1344 segué, 1348 country gospel; 1350 UT weather for somewhere in Arkansas, 41 degrees; therefore: KMTL Sherwood, 10 kW ND daytimer. Not a trace of Denver yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 830, Jan 27 at 1338 UT just after sunrise here, non-ID twice as ``99-3 Jazz[???] FM``, music style classic rock, loops E/W. NRC AM Log has the answer: WGUE Memphis TN, 3000 watts D1, but CP for 8000/2  watts U1. Format AC/OLD, // W257CY ``99.3 Guess FM`` and it`s in AM $tereo. WTFDA FM database agrees on the //, i.e. translator tail wagging this dog of an AM, but as a K-Love, apparently no longer that. 830 Tucson with 50 kW day power might pop in later (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1690, Jan 27 at 0605 UT, ``Talk of Chicago, WVON`` ID, and program opening including WVON in Morse code, once, then soul music theme. Also accompanied by IBOC noise, audible vs 1680 weak KRJO, not so much vs 1700 stronger pileup (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VATICAN. 3975, Jan 27 at 0631, no signal from Vatican Radio for Latin Mass; checked here after 6070 was well atop CFRX. Late coming up on 75m? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also SUDAN [non]

UNIDENTIFIED. 2660, Jan 27 at 1317 UT, JBA music from likely KGLD Tyler TX second harmonic of 1330; need to chase this earlier from 1200 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4895, Jan 27 at 1325, very poor signal with talk, vs CODAR, likely 50 kW ND AIR Kurseong grayline, rather than 10 kW ND Murun, Mongolia (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
