Glenn Hauser logs September 29-30, 2015

** BRAZIL. 9645.3, Sept 30 at 0058, no signal from R. Bandeirantes; nor at 0138 when 9630v and 9665v stations are confirmed. I logged it last week, Sept 21 at 0545 with that quarter-hour timesignal, but Brazilians on the radioescutas group have been concluding the station has quit SW for good. We hope that`s premature, as lots of stations break down for some reason and come back; let`s keep checking.

But this from Lenildo da Silva, No Mundo do Dexismo, via Daniel Wyllyans, HCDX on Sept 26 [gh improved Google translation]:

``Apparently, Rádio Bandeirantes of São Paulo (SP), ended its shortwave transmissions, since it is no longer captured on 9645 and 6090 kHz; transmission on 11925 kHz had been suppressed for several months.

Affected by a financial crisis, the São Paulo station began a wave of layoffs in its workforce in August, not even sparing established names from the sports department.

The obstructive cuts, which have reached other parts of the Bandeirantes Group, seem to have come now to shortwave transmissions. We hope, however, that the traditional broadcaster of journalism and sport, can overcome this crisis and re-operate on shortwave soon`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 10000, Sept 30 at 0141-0143, PPE, Observatório Nacional with time beeps every dekasecond, and a louder/longer one at each minute-top. Very week, and can barely make out ID and time announcements between, but WWV & WWVH are just as weak here, all adding up to only S1-S2. They do seem well-synchronized (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** CUBA. 6165, Sept 30 at 0103, open carrier/dead air from RHC, and so is 6000. Finally at 0106, 6000 is IDing and signing on English, so playout operator from studio must have known about the delay; 6165 is JBM, then 6000 dumps off the air and 6165 to OC; *0107:35, 6000 cuts back on; and so it goes. Will this have thrown off the timing of all the hour-by-hour repeats? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EAST TURKISTAN [and non]. 9470, Sept 30 at 0135, CRI English with stox, even NASDAQ, and running about two words behind 9570 ALBANIA, two words ahead of 9850 CUBA relays. So it must be between Albania and Cuba? No, Kashgar (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EGYPT. Haven`t surveyed the R. Cairo frequencies for a while, so how are they doing? Awful, as usual:

12070.00, Sept 30 at *0048:33, R. Cairo carrier cuts on late just as I tune in, about S9 but just barely modulated, suptorted, supposedly Spanish

11935.07, Sept 30 at 0052, R. Cairo is about the same as on 12070, i.e. useless, but with a low JBA het, Brasil?

9965.22, Sept 30 at 0056, R. Cairo, Arabic music, just JBM with LAH or whine

9315, Sept 30 at 0134, R. Cairo, supposedly Spanish, S7 but JBM, suptorted (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEWFOUNDLAND. 2598-USB, Sept 30 at 0117, YL in English with lots of numbers, S5 fighting the noise level. Like my Sept 17 log at almost the same minute, it`s VCM, St. Anthony with marine weather (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OMAN. 9500, Sept 30 at 0137, ME music, undermodulated tho S9+20, so R. Sultanate of Oman is on correct frequency tonight, just like exactly one week ago; could this be a behavioural pattern? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, Sept 30 at 0059, JBA carrier from R. Chaski, until auto-cutoff at 0105:58.5*, which is 44.5 seconds later than last check one week ago, Sept 23 until 0105:14*, or averaging 6.36 seconds later per day (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7504.65, Sept 30 at 0132, bigsig of S9+40 as WRNO is reactivated! As in DXLD 15-34, last heard on March 22, 2015. Think it`s the same main preacher as before with his slightly strange accent; 0143 singing ``God is good``. So in its new incarnation, WRNO has decided to reside off-frequency to the low side instead of high. Not checked further but the previous sked was v0100-0400 only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 880, Sept 29 at 1927 UT on caradio parked at a quiet location in western Enid, I`m getting not only KRVN Lexington NE, usual daytime signal here, but a second weaker station, also a talker, and in English. Try as I can, no clues pulloutable under KRVN. No DFing on that radio, so go next to the ALA-330S oriented east/west by the NRD-545 and compare signal that way to the N-S random wire. 

KRVN is much stronger on the latter, but unID gains nothing by nulling KRVN to E-W, so DF rules out KLRG Sheridan AR, which tho 50 KW ND in daytime, is not known to make it here across inferior Ozarkian ground conductivity. Still cannot pull an ID across 2000 UT hourtop as KRVN goes to Fox ``news``. Then I check the archive and the listings. NRC Pattern Book shows only one other obvious possibility: 

Conroe TX, 10/1 kW U4, which is now KJOZ. When we logged it last March not in the daytime, it was confirmed to be Spanish religion. NRC AM Log 2015 still has it as such, ``Radio Aleluya``, address in Pasadena. However, Terry Krueger, FL, logged it in August, apparently in English. Searching for presumably current website, we find:
where it`s branded ``Progressive Talk, News, Sports and More`` with an address in Houston. Here`s its lofty lema:

Program schedule for weekdays only,
shows 12-2 pm, `Point of View with Carmen Watkins`; 2-5 pm, `Classic R&B Drive Music Mix`. That`s 17-19 & 19-22 UT. Well, I wasn`t hearing any R&B around 1930-2000, just talk, much of it feminine. 

A concise history of 880`s multiple owners and formats is at
concluding with ``As of April 13, 2015, KJOZ has permanently dropped Spanish Christian programming and relaunched as a progressive talk station with the slogan "Where diversity finds its voice."``

U4 means directional, different patterns day and night. NRC PB of 7/15/2013 shows day pattern is almost circular but a bit lopsided favoring the north, which is helpful for us. 

That certainly makes sense for Houston area via groundwave to here, the station with the best chance to reach us, if only it weren`t for KRVN. Radio-locator shows site is about halfway between Houston and Huntsville to the north, i.e. Conroe. City-to-city distance 714 km = 443 statute miles over good conductivity.  

However, it`s odd that I don`t recall hearing such an understation to KRVN before here at full day, only an hour to one sesquihour after local mean noon. Has something changed? KRVN 50/50 kW is ND day, westward at night away from WCBS. Distance to Enid is 514 km = 320 miles over some of the best ground-conductivity on the continent, producing a fully readable if not very strong signal.

FCC Query shows that KJOZ does have an APP, but not a CP, to move to Baytown and *reduce* daytime power to 5 kW (but apparently cover all-important Houston better). That pattern would have a huge lobe to the NNW, right toward us and KRVN too!

We would surely be getting 50 kW 740 Houston if not for 50 kW KRMG Tulsa and KTRH nulling toward OK, throwing most of its day and night signals to the southwest; 610 and 790 are direxional south; 650 is a pennywhistle 250 watts (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4450-4451, Sept 30 at 0113, weak AM carrier is jumping around to various spots in this range as I am trying to zero-beat it exactly and maybe draw some modulation. Is the WOOB Bolivian Radio Santa Ana known to behave this way? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6925-LSB, Sept 30 at 0044, 2-way in Brazuguese; maybe ``peskies`` as the North American pirates complain of them, but none heard on the band now, except 6770. Peskies prefer LSB and are on various spots down to 6900 or so (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Glenn Hauser logs September 27-29, 2015

** BANGLADESH. 15505, Sept 29 at 1359, JBA carrier, but with BFO and headphones I strain to hear a mis-timesignal from Bangladesh Betar --- and do, the final chime at 1400:19.5, into Urdu service theme (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) see also INDONESIA

** CANADA. 740, Sept 28 at 0546 UT, nostalgic song, 0549 UT ``Zoomer Radio`` ID, ``Natural Woman``. Overcomes KRMG Tulsa at one tenth the distance and one half the power, especially when angling away from it, tho still picking up some LAH from Mexico off the back. CFZM Toronto, via CBL (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [and non]. 7200, Sept 29 at 1240, soft song and Chinese talk, over CCI, and also an LSB ham who is oblivious to such broadcast QRM. Aoki shows jamming and RTI at 10-13; blowing away Myanmar if it`s really on too (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 17630, Sept 29 at 1420, CRI English is fair with flutter, no echo. Ivo Ivanov recently recorded, presumably in Bulgaria, an echo here during this hour, confirming that CRI is really also eastward via Bamako, Mali at the same time on same frequency:
So far in North America, we only hear Urumqi. After 1500, when I seldom monitor, but instead write these reports, another CRI English hour on 17630 is supposed to be via Mali only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9420, Sept 29 at 0557, Greek music, fair with flutter. Has been a while since both VOG and I were `on the air` at the same time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA. 4750-, Sept 28 at 1245, RRI Makassar, Sulawesi, Indonesian songs, 1252 mentions warta berita, news promo; LAH from a 4750.0 station is there thruout, but quite weaker.

4750-, Sept 29 at 1235, RRI Makassar, YL Indonesian talk with LAH from 4750.0 but soon in the clear mostly with songs; *1258:32.5 the het cuts back on, too much to keep listening to either. Is that the behaviour of Bangladesh or China? 

At first at 1235 Sept 29, I also have carriers on 3325, 3905, 4870, which could also be RRIs (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN. 11730, Sept 29 at 1322, VIRI is good with lite flutter, 1323 sign-on in Chinese, NA. Don`t recall hearing this before, and here`s why: per Aoki, 11730 is only at 1220-1320 in Pashto, due east from Sirjan, so they didn`t get it turned off in time. BUT --- the trouble is, the VIRI Chinese broadcast is scheduled at 1150-1250! via Sirjan on 17700 and 21455. The next broadcast from Sirjan is supposed to be Japanese on 13660 from 1323. 

Had I known this was so anomalous, would have kept listening or rechecked later. Per, DST in Iran ended Tuesday Sept 22, so have they been confused for a week in the studio, broadcasting languages an hour off the proper UT scheduled times?! And/or further mixup between Chinese and Japanese? I, for one, have no trouble telling those quite different spoken languages apart (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 11600, Sept 29 at 1325, another great Kurdish music concert from Denge Kurdistane, including a cappella chanting, orchestral segments past 1359. Good signal via PRIDNESTROVYE. 1417 recheck, however, 11600 is weaker and open carrier/dead air. Has there been a too-rough transmitter-site swap in the meantime? Yes, supposedly goes at 1400 from Prid. To B`lgariya, where Ivo Ivanov has often noted the transition is anything but smooth (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 980, Sept 29 at 1220, talk sounds like style of Antena Radio on IMER stations, as also on 1570 but not enough signal from both to make a // match with XERF. The IMER station on 980 is XEFQ, 2500/500 watts, La Voz de la Ciudad del Cobre, Cananea, Sonora, which I have logged before. At 1235 seems both are singing, now that 980 is under KMBZ. NW Mexican SRS conditions were quite inferior this morning, not getting much at this hour on lower channels (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 9690-, Sept 29 at 0558, open carrier/dead air on good signal from VON; same at 0559 on 7255-. At least they are on the air unlike 24 hours earlier. Normally by now they are drumming and chanting. Good night, so over to Wolfgang Büschel for Hausa details at 0615 UT Sept 29: ``9689.896 kHz heard on fair level in Germany, S=7-8, fluttery signal. Nothing on 7255v despite Belarus Radio. BUT heard in US eastern coast remote net units 7254.935 S=8-9 in NJ-US remote unit`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 21530-21650 approx., Sept 18 at 1404, extremely distorted wideband FM modulation, but with pauses I can match to the chat on KTST 101.9 OKC, instead of Twister music, peaking about 21580, i.e. the second harmonic of the ~10.7 MHz IF of some neighbor`s FM receiver becoming a relay transmitter. Heard several times, always tuned to KTST. 13m pretty much useless lately, but can also make out 21630 Ascension and a bit of 21505 Riyadh (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 21505, Sept 29 at 1419, poor signal but the SSOB from BSKSA in Arabic, and would be the OSOB if it were not for even less from 21630 Ascension. These days, any propagation on 13m is noteworthy. Maybe we are getting into the ``fall peak`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 9370, Sept 28 at 1311, open carrier/dead air from WWRBS with some hum; always much more hum on 9980 WWCR BS even while modulating (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5004.5-USB, Sept 29 at 1302, Navy MARS net, too close for comfort to WWV on the FRG-7, but no problem on the DX-398 altho with lesser indoor random wire antenna clipped on. Several stations implying a note of finality, as if Navy MARS is about to go away. They muse about joining AF or Army MARS instead, or setting up a ham net of their own. At 1318, NNN0YGW says, ``dedicated to Navy MARS until it drops under the water``. 1319, he closes the net for today. 

Maybe imminent end of USG fiscal year tomorrow is the deadline? Other calls heard include NNN0AEV, NNN0AWG, NNN0FLN (in Missouri, real foggy, 58 degrees). `YGW has been logged as NCS for Iowa, Navy MARS Region 7; `AWG in Ames IA; `AEV in Missouri; `FLN a.k.a. N0INF = Danny E. Mann, Sr., Elkland MO. Logged this net previously until 1417* last Dec 5 as in DXLD 14-50 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17895, Sept 28 at 1403, open carrier from VOA Greenville test at S9+20, SSOB, off and back on for a bit; daily checkout a few hours before the midday broadcast to Africa (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1792 monitoring: confirmed Sunday Sept 27 at 2300 on WRMI 11580, sufficient. Also confirmed UT Monday Sept 28 from 0303 on Area 51 webcast, JL, running only slightly over; ``he`s gotta go``; and confirmed UT Monday Sept 28 on WRMI 9955, sufficient. Next:
Wed 1315   WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 2100   WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Full schedule:

** U S A. 1140, Sept 28 at 1309 UT, Spanish ad from AC 479, easily over groundwave KRMP OKC, but starting to fade half a sesquihour after sunrise here, i.e. KLTK Centerton AR, address in Rogers, 5 kW ND daytimer, the station named after a supermarket, ``Radio Las Américas`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1260, Sept 28 at 1255 UT, ID for 104.1 KSGF, Springfield`s News-Talk, from MO; 5/5 kW, day pattern is ND, but at night it`s all to the south. What do you know, this FM is not a mere translator but a genuine 19 kW station, however, licensed to Ash Grove, which is about 15 miles to the WNW, an afterthought? Official FCC September sunrise is 1200 UT; October, 1215 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. RF 45, Sept 29 at 1435 UT, tropo is up from KSNW 3.1 Wichita KS, NBC, even tho antenna remains stuck toward OKC; so I try 3.2 and there is ``Telemun`` as that`s how it gets into the Wichita market, piggybacking on KSNW, but with breakup. Hepburn`s tropo maps do not show any enhancement around here, and just marginal in eastern OK. Nor does Mountainlake, just Colorado/New Mexico. 

``Univisi`` is also decoding without breakup on RF 31 = 31-1 (kaput KXOK Enid no longer a blocker). That`s really KDCU-DT, a megawatt pretending to be in Derby KS, and shows as 46.1 Univision, 46.2 Unimas --- no, displays as 31-1 with no further subchannels. No other Wichita signals are Good enough to decode under these circumstances (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Radio Padania, troppi debiti: chiusura vicina

La storica emittente leghista verso il fallimento. Mancano soldi e investitori. Malumori nel partito e tra i militanti. «Colpa della mala gestio di Salvini».
di Giovanna Predoni | 28 Settembre 2015
Mentre Matteo Salvini cerca di trovare la quadra con Silvio Berlusconi sul futuro del centrodestra italiano, all’interno la Lega Nord ribolle, tra malumori, possibili fallimenti e una sempre più risicata disponibilità economica.
La crisi di Radio Padania, la storica emittente del movimento ora a rischio chiusura, non è che la punta di un iceberg di un partito che si mantiene alto nei sondaggi ma che naviga a vista in attesa di certezze, soprattutto economiche.
NIENTE AIUTI DA PUTIN. Del resto di soldi dalla Russia di Vladimir Putin non ne sono arrivati e nei corridoi di via Bellerio, calcolatrice alla mano, si quantifica ormai che all’anno le entrate si aggireranno nel 2016 intorno ai 2 milioni di euro. Ma è una cifra che, dopo i tagli del governo Renzi ai contributi pubblici ai partiti e soprattutto ai giornali di partito, potrebbe diminuire.
Basti pensare che prima della riforma Monti, con il decreto Peluffo, solo il quotidiano La Padania ha incassato 37 milioni di euro dal 2003 al 2012.
Per questo motivo la missione di Salvini per la salvare la radio potrebbe rivelarsi impossibile.
Come già anticipato da Italia Oggi, infatti, l'emittente per sopravvivere ha bisogno di almeno 1 milione di euro, che rappresentano quasi la metà degli introiti che in Lega si aspettano di incassare il prossimo anno. Il segretario lumbard ce la sta mettendo tutta.
Alessandro Morelli, il direttore di Radio Padania, continua a imperversare in tivù per raccontare la situazione. Gli è stato dato pure spazio a Matrix, su Canale 5, da Luca Telese, il 23 settembre. E su Twitter qualcuno se n'è accorto prendendosela con il conduttore, chiedendo di dare spazio ai referendum di Pippo Civati invece che alla radio leghista.
DISPERATA RICERCA DI NUOVI INVESTITORI. Non solo. I leghisti, oltre che continuare a tagliare il possibile, stanno puntando sulla ricerca di nuovi investitori, o comunque su qualche imprenditore che possa dare una mano.
Salvini ci prova in tutti i modi. Non solo perché socio della cooperativa che gestisce l'emittente - una liquidazione o un fallimento potrebbero pure ricadere sulle sue tasche -, ma perché, secondo quanto dicono i suoi, non vuole passare per il segretario (e giornalista, ndr) che ha visto 'spegnere' tutti i media padani.
La radio, infatti, potrebbe seguire a ruota la chiusura di TelePadania e del quotidiano La Padania nel 2014. Vicende che hanno creato non poco malumore nei militanti che per tanti anni hanno lavorato per il movimento. Anche perché una tale moria di media pone diverse domande su come potrebbe svilupparsi la comunicazione in casa leghista. L’unico progetto al momento in campo è quello del quotidiano Il Populista che dovrebbe essere diretto sempre da Morelli. Ma anche qui tutto è in stand-by.
Eppure c’è chi in via Bellerio punta il dito contro le scelte di Salvini che ha affidato la radio al suo nuovo gruppo di 'giovanotti', il suo cerchio magico, invece che lasciarla nelle mani di Cesare Bossetti e Davide Caparini, che l’hanno fondata e amministrata sino a poco tempo fa. Anche per questo, nel partito, c’è chi rinfaccia alla nuova reggenza di non aver venduto in tempo le frequenze per incassare qualche quattrino in modo da poter andare avanti.
CRESCONO I MALUMORI INTERNI. Secondo Italia Oggi a Radio Padania sono venuti meno anche 300 mila euro di fondi pubblici quest’anno. E adesso? La chiusura della storica emittente rischia di tagliare di netto un pezzo della storia della Lega Nord.
Ma il trend ormai sembra questo. Il 19 settembre, compleanno di Umberto Bossi, militanti e dirigenti 'lumbard' si affrettano a twittare e spammare su Facebook gli auguri al vecchio Capo. Ma arriva un ordine dall’alto.
Luca Morisi, guru della comunicazione salviniana, scrive un sms dove annuncia a tutti che gli auguri non saranno pubblicati sulla pagina Facebook ufficiale del partito, quella di Lega Nord Padania.
Bossi poi dirà: «Sono rimasto solo».
Cosa diventerà la Lega? Nascerà la Lega Italiana su scala nazionale? Di certo se ne saprà di più dopo l’incontro tra Salvini e Berlusconi, anche se non è ancora stato fissato.

domenica 27 settembre 2015

Glenn Hauser logs September 27, 2015

** CHINA. 6200, Sept 27 at 1251, lite song in Chinese? 1254 includes whistling; 1300 Chinese announcement and more music. Aoki says it is: Voice of Jinling, starting at the odd time of 1240, until 1500, since July 7, 100 kW, 161 degrees from Nanjing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 560, unID, Sept 27 at 1147, barely audible, think I hear a station exclaim ``Súper éxitos . . . México``. Not a formal name unless new, none such in the three major references, IRCA Log, Cantú and WRTH. This early, it could be any of the 8 XEs except Chetumal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA [and non]. 4750-, Sept 27 at 1241, RRI Makassar in the clear with Indonesian music and conversation; but at *1244.4 hit by LAH from 4750.0 Bangladesh or China, off again, and back on to stay from *1244.7. I wonder if this is an intentional variable sign-on time for them contrary to known schedules? The LAH worsens, so no more attempt to listen to RRI today, and both will soon be outfading (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 600, Sept 27 at 1209, ID for 102.7 FM and next words not originally copied must have been ``La Mejor`` as the only 600/102.7 combo in IRCA Log is XEHW, Mazatlán, Sinaloa. One of these days relying on FM/AM frequency match will trip us up if there are two of the same on one pair of frequencies, but odds are against it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO [and non]. 760, Sept 27 at *1200 UT, KCCV Overland Park KS pops onto day power of 6 kW, no ID but Bott Network, and gospel-huxter show with guest short hoary wacko OK Sen. Inhofe to refute a pope about climate change. I had hoped to hear the XE already, which the last two mornings was playing nostalgic/American big band music. 1200 UT is the Sept official KCCV sunrise; Oct: *1230.

1215 UT recheck however, now the music station has taken over, but romantic vocal ballad music in Spanish this Sunday, at first making fast SAH with KCCV. Loops WSW. 1218 segué; 1224 announcement about ``760 - en esta hora, La Fantasma, en Geny-AM . . . música del recuerdo``, i.e. nostalgic in a sense, next tune romantic. 

So it`s the 5000/100 watt Nogales, Sonora station XENY and not XEES Chihuahua2. I wonder if it signed on at 1215, or just the right time for sunrise skip to push it in, Enid SR being 1223 UT today (but not until 1315 UT in both Nogales) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 9690- & 7275-, Sept 27 at 0558, no signals from VON, which ought to be ramping up for the Hausa hour; propagation should be OK as even Romania is audible on 9700 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 96.9 KQOB and 98.1 WWLS-FM, Sunday Sept 27 at 1205 UT are both carrying `Sunday Morning Magazine` in English, breaking music and sports formats; first guest discussing Oklahoma tax matters, as also on 930 WKY and 640 KWPN. With one radio handy, can`t check whether synchronized, but probably all separate playouts. However, not on 98.9 or 100.5, while 104.9 not checked but low power and not necessarily audible here. As I noted last week, these are commonly-owned cluster RADIO LICENSE HOLDING CBC, LLC; except KQOB is still licensed to Champlin Broadcasting, Enid; but this program reveals it`s LMA`d to RLHCBCLLC. FCC Query info does not display LMA deals, tho maybe they can be dug out somewhere. LMA = local management agreement? I.e. station leased out to another company (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 870, Sept 27 at 1227 UT, Spanish ad for English learning with an 800 number, ID I can`t copy, ranchera. 1234 UT ID for ``870, una estación de ---`` but can`t copy the rest; more music. Loops east/west. With an ad, it can`t be XETAR Chihuahua, which I did hear a bit of circa 1210 UT but not logged. This late, the only other XE likely still to propagate, after XETAR has faded out, is XEFIL in Mazatlán, Sinaloa, 1000/250 watts, W Radio, La Sinaloense. The only US possibility is 5000/430 watt KLSQ near Las Vegas, NV which is SS with Univisión América. As for the 800 number clue, México also has such toll-free deals. Sinaloa is much more of a hotspot for SRS DX here, than NV (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

End of Shipping Forecast on long wave radio could leave sailors high and dry

Daily Telegraph
26 September 2015  

After more than 90 years the days of the Shipping Forecast may be numbered due  to the demise of long wave technology 

It has kept sailors safe on the ocean waves for 90 years, becoming just as much a part of national consciousness as cricket, cups of tea and The Archers. 

But the days of hearing the Shipping Forecast out on a boat may be numbered thanks to the demise of long wave technology, a veteran announcer has said. 

Peter Jefferson, who read the Shipping Forecast to Radio 4 listeners for 40 years, said the "very old" transmitters which worked on long wave could soon be retired. 

If that was to happen, he said, anyone more than 12 miles from the coastline would be unable to hear the shipping forecast on long wave, ending a Radio 4 tradition dating back to 1924. 

Speaking at the Radio Times Festival, in Hampton Court, Mr Jefferson said the soothing tones of the Shipping Forecast would then be left to its many fans who choose to listen to it from their homes in lieu of a "sleeping pill". 

"Long wave reaches much further than FM, it's as simple as that," he said. 

"So FM would be totally useless for shipping beyond 12 miles from land. 

"So they will not be able to receive the shipping forecast. 
"If long wave is retired, which might be the case, then I don't know what will happen to the shipping forecast." 

He added: "The long wave will be retired because it's very old and costs a lot to maintain, I think it's days are numbered now.

"It's a matter of whether they can find another way of transmitting the shipping forecast to reach as far as i t needs to." 

The future of long wave radio has posed a difficult question for fans of the medium for years, with the technology required to broadcast it now fast falling out of date. 

The valves used the the transmission system, based at Droitwich in Worcestershire, are no longer made, with the BBC said to have once bought up the entire stock of 10 in the world in order to make it last as long as possible. 

A spokesman for the BBC said they were no firm plans to end long wave broadcasting, and no date set for when the technology could run out. 

The service currently reaches as far as south-east Iceland, and is occasionally picked up as far as 3,000 miles away. 

The forecast, which airs four times a day, is currently listened to by a large audience on dry land, with the vast majority choosing to tune in for pleasure rather than professional necessity. 

"We all like regularity in our lives to some extent, to have a soothing voice talking to yo u as are about to be overtaken by sleep at the same time, with the same words, it's the pattern of the words," said Mr Jefferson. 

"A lot of people find it soothing even if they don't understand what it means." 

The long-serving announcer, who retired in 2009, also raised questions over changes in the service, which see it left to a single person to put out. 

When a member of the audience said she found new announcers "highly irritating", and criticised their emphasis on particular words, Mr Jefferson said: "I do have views, yes." 

Of his early days at Radio 4, he told an audience he had been tested by his older colleagues in a ritual prank, which saw them take his script away mid-broadcast and leave him to fend for himself. 

His book, "And Now The Shipping Forecast", is out now. rs-high-and-dry.html

Glenn Hauser logs September 26-27, 2015

** CHINA [non]. 7210, Sept 26 at 2333, Radio Internacional de China fair in Spanish with `Puente de la Amistad` show or promo; via ALBANIA at 22-24. I was looking for N1NR and his anti-Castro buddies but no LSB on the frequency. They might also be bothered by the ChiCom at 14-15, when CRI is in Chinese eastward direct from Beijing site. I think their favorite net time is in the mornings before 14 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11650-11690, Sept 26 at 2343, bigsig from RHC 11670 is splattering out plus/minus 20 kHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EGYPT. 12070.0, Sept 26 at 2345, steady S9 signal from R. Cairo during Arabic from Abis, but suptorted to just barely modulated; still so at 0012 Sept 27 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN. 9421.6, Sept 26 at 2329, fair carrier, presumably the off-frequency-jumping Zahedan transmitter in 7.5-hour VIRI Arabic service scheduled on 9420 until 0030; Greece is off so no het (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 7395, Sept 26 at 2335, The Mighty KBC on test frequency as publicized at least a sesquiweek earlier and on WOR 1791 for 23-24 this date only. Usual fare of rock music; 2338 Uncle Eric announcement. This makes S9 to S9+20 peaks yet not a totally solid signal. Nothing on 7375 now so unclear why they would move to 7395 if expanding an hour earlier. 

7375, Sept 27 at 0002, The Mighty KBC is now here on its regular 00-03 UT Sunday frequency via Nauen, GERMANY, reading S9+35, certainly stronger than 7395 was earlier, but I wasn`t listening at hourtop for the transition. Could 7395 be from quite another transmitter site? Now he can tell us (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NICARAGUA. 8989-USB, Sept 26 at 2331, very poor signal again audible with the pirate preacher in Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-USB, Sept 27 at 0005, scat song with piano, S9+20 good signal, 0007 Wolverine Radio ID. It was not on during a pirate-band scan a few minutes earlier. Lots more logs in this thread, showing songs with ``Girl`` in title were the theme tonight:

** OKLAHOMA. 1120, Sept 26 from a few minutes before 1900 UT until 2001+ UT I am listening on headphones to KETU/KEOR Catoosa/Sperry/Tulsa as accompaniment to my nap. It`s noisy with computers and TVs running around, but tolerable. Continues to be all-music, a variety of instrumental styles, and lots of songs with lyrix --- I am dozing but not deeply and think I would have come to immediately if there had ever been a spoken announcement. Someone is programming this, as it`s not just cut after cut from the same albums, no pauses either. And so it goes. All music, all the time, and they really would mean it (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 1270, Sat Sept 26 at 2309 I am checking KTUZ Claremore/Tulsa again, after having heard it a few days ago with a game in English, which I figured was an aberration, pre-emption of normal Spanish format. But now it is still in English with sports-talk, and running 15 seconds ahead of originator KRXO 107.7 OKC, ``The Franchise``, apparently following OSU FB game at UT Austin. I don`t care who won! At 2357 ID for KRXO/HD etc., The Franchise, not for KTUZ 1270 which possibly inserted a legal ID a bit later, but not heard. Tyler Media dominates the OKC Spanish TV & radio market, but also has English stations, and as the name implies, I think is O&O by Anglos.

1270 rechecked at 2351 UT Sept 26, now it`s Spanish, but wait --- from the south/SSE, not ESE. Game in Lubbock is at third quarter, but also talking about OSU at UT Austin. So this one has faded in from Benbrook, KFLC, 50/5 kW with address in Dallas, format Spanish talk, Univisión América. By nulling KFLC I can still hear KTUZ in English. They are making a slow SAH circa 1 Hz, but as I start to count it a third station gets in the way. Two of them anyway make SAH of 2.5 Hz. At 2358 UT as I have rotated the PL-880 back toward KFLC, adstring in Spanish, including Aflac, Charter Spectrum; 0000 UT Sept 27 Rosetta Stone, but no ID across hourtop before back to game talk.

1270, Sept 26 at 2356, another English station fades in with Royals baseball; only can be KSCB Liberal KS per affiliate list/map at
(Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 93.3, Sept 26 at 2320 UT, C&W, and ``93-3 Jake FM`` ID as usual from KJKE; Artie Bigley had sent me a Radio Insight item yesterday that it had rebranded itself for Donald Trump:

``Donald Trump Takes Over Jake-FM Oklahoma City - September 25, 2015 | "Donald Trump" has taken over Tyler Media Country "93.3 Jake-FM" KJKE Newcastle/Oklahoma City. With Trump set to speak at the Oklahoma State Fair this evening, his likeness is now operating "93.3 The Donald" with the goal to "Make Radio Great …``

Fortunately, that was short-lived (with a long I, since it derives from life, not live), KJKE is marginal here, fading up and down, as despite 100 kW it`s on the far side of The Metro (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OMAN. 15140, Sept 27 at 0010, weak ME music poor at S3, but surely RSO running 2+ hours late on this frequency tonight, rather than on 31m (Glenn Hauser, OK DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 11795, Sept 26 at 2344, Romanian folk music, no doubt RRI during scheduled Spanish hour via Galbeni. At 0000 everything will change: to 11800, to English, to Tsiganeshti (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TAIWAN [and non]. 11634.9, approx., Sept 26 at 2342, slightly fluxuating LAH between at least two stations, including some Chinese language. Aoki shows the situation: RTI in Chinese at 22-24 from Tainan site, which has a way of being off-frequency to make matters worse, and Must Be Jammed by the ChiCom, presumably with CNR1. VOK/KCBS in Korean is also scheduled on 11635 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 4030-USB, UT Sunday Sept 27 at 0015, S7 signal in noise with lecture on emergency ops, without power or internet, how to prepare? Put your thinking caps on. Says he disconnects everything when not in use, transceiver from power, antenna from ATU, and has never had a lightning strike. Then quotes a message from Region 4 to all Tennessee Army MARS stations, requiring the mike-1210-alfa mode to be used instead of Olivia or MP63, at least 75b speed, more if it will work; 0020 calling for questions with ID AA4TN. I thought I had logged him before, but apparently not. Easy google to James T Faris, Kingsport TN (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 13564-CW, Sept 26 at 2347, finally I`ve heard again a Part 15 HIFER beacon after more than a bimonth, and the first one using the NRD-545: GNK, slowly sent over and over, and JBA vs the ISM hash, CODAR and a rapid pulsing noise, some of which may be local. 

GNK is in Madison WI, run by KC9GNK at 10 wpm per
and he has another one on 1704.30 kHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12110, Sept 26 at 2346, S3 Asian language vs CODAR but separable from 12105 WTWW using USB. It`s VOA Burmese, due west from Tinang, PHILIPPINES at 2330-2430 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11856.29, Sept 26 at 0130, R. Aparecida, Brazuguese still further off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 890, Sept 26 at 0145, Cuban music dominant over WLS without really trying; same on // 4765 but about one second delayed after 890. Also synch on much weaker // 900. R. Progreso 890 listed as in Chambas, Ciego de Ávila with 200 kW power, matched only by Rebeldes on 710 and 1180 (each of which also with multiple weaker synchros around the Greatest of the Antilles to block the wicked worms). Attention: it is NOT spelt ``Progresso`` --- no double-S`s in Spanish unless proper name derived from e.g. Italian (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 5025, Sept 26 at 0137, R. Rebelde is OFF! Leaving a JBA carrier on 5024.9, presumably R. Quillabamba, PERU, as measured by both Thomas Nilsson in Sweden, and Pedro F Arrunátegui, Perú in June on 5024.92. I don`t see how RQ puts up with the QubaRM in South America. 4765 R. Progreso is still on. Recheck 0627 Sept 26, Rebelde is back (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** INDONESIA [and non]. 4750-, Sept 26 at 1240, RRI Makassar, Sulawesi, with songs but no respite today from LAH 4750.0 QRM de Bangladesh or China. Also find Asian carriers on 4800, 4870, 4895, 4920, 4970, 5010, 5040, 5050. And as always much bigger signals from 4940 China, 4835 Australia (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN. 774 & 594, Sept 26 at 1213, again today, JBA TP carriers looping NW/SE, no doubt from the NHK superpowers (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 760, Sept 26 at 1222, again this morning I am hearing nostalgic music, Spanish ID for ``760`` and a two-word? name I can`t copy, into honky-tonk piano and big band tune. Overcomes gospel huxter on KCCV at 1226, then  reversed at 1227. Possibly XENY Radio Geny in Nogales, Sonora which I have heard before, but also suspect Antena Musical in Chihuahua2, XEES. Assuming same programming as on FM 102.5,
it`s merely unspecified Musical at 6-7:30 am Sat, 6-8 am Sun, but M-F it`s News starting at 6 am, and I also had NOS music at this time yesterday, Friday. How about XENY Nogales? Its website
shows unspecified La Mejor Música at 5-7 am (weekdays?), which one  doubts would apply to foreign/nitch US big band music. Quite a roster gallery of locutores = DJs and/or newspersons (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925.14, approx., Sept 26 at 0114, very poor pirate music on AM, presumed usual Liquid Radio on signature off-frequency, but never strong enough here to ID directly (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-USB, Sept 26 at 0113, pirate music at S9+15; 0122 Dick Weed of Radio Free What-ever, back-announcing several tunes and open for requests (Glenn Hauser, oK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1120, Sept 25 before and after 1900 UT, no break for ID or any announcement from the Catoosa/Sperry/Tulsa station known to FCC as KETU, but last heard IDing many months ago with its former call KEOR. I continue to check this sporadically in daytime mostly on caradio, with sufficient signal, but still NEVER hear any announcements whatsoever, let alone commercials or IDs, just continuous Mexican music. I have yet to dedicate 60+ minutes to constant listening, however to be absolutely sure it is anything but a jukebox, earning nothing while burning electrical fluid and occupying bandwidth (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non non]. 7355, Sept 26 at 0628, Brother Scare is VG on new frequency. Ivo Ivanov says it`s WHRI at 06-08 M-F, but this is Saturday. Is this on his own schedule?
Of course not! Also with lite squeal: WHRI better watch out, as a transmitter modulation card may be failing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490-AM & 5109.7-CUSB, UT Sat Sept 26 at 0117, I catch the last part of `Allan Weiner Worldwide` on WBCQs. Says he got a terrible electric shock last week, from 4 kV DC as he was working on backup transmitter, and was pushing on a cap he thought had been discharged; still painful. Going thru e-mail, thanking contributors, says he`s against same-sex marriage, then praying a benedixion, finishing at 0135, to music on 7490, presumably during BS, while 5109.7 stays on a while longer with OC. 9330 was not on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1060, Sept 26 at 0148 UT, ranchera music, WSW/ENE, 0151 UT segué romantic tune, 0154 UT another segué and I can`t hang around for any ToH ID. No LAH, and not XERDO from the south, whence we do get a weak LAH. No Mexicans fit direxion, so presume it be KXPL El Paso TX, which is *so* Mexican that Cantú pulled it across the frontera for his list last Feb before he vanished it, as a 10 kW daytimer, ``RADIO NET 1060``. This year`s NRC AM Log denominates it ``Radio El Paso-Juárez, con su música``. BUT --- official FCC September sunset for KXPL is: 0115 UT (October: 0030 UT). NRC says it does have a 500-w PSRA allowing it to start at 6 am local when that is before official sunrise (Sept: 1245 UT; Oct: 1315 UT).
