Glenn Hauser logs June 1-2, 2016

** BANGLADESH. 15505, June 1 at *1400:15, BB carrier is very late cutting on, so no mistimesignal heard, and furthermore cuts off at 1401:55*, still off past 1404 instead of Urdu (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6165, June 1 at 0601, RHC English is just barely modulated here, but sufficient on 6100, 6060 and 6000, while 5040 is now off.

19070, June 1 at 1350, RHC harmonic 2 x 9535 is a JBA carrier, but nothing on 19280 or 19420; correlating with strong signals from the 16m fundamentals: 17580 at S9, 17730 S9+20. Before these build up, no way the 19 MHz harmonix will (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH. 4885, June 1 around 1205 I notice no signal from reliable Echo of Hope, which nominally starts at 1150 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. Earthquake report: UT June 2 at 0129:05 or so, the window rattles briefly as I am recording World of Radio. Could have been a sonic boom except the jets at Vance seem to be subsonic. Yes, it`s a quake, soon confirmed by USGS as 3.1 magnitude, only 14 km ESE of Enid, at 0128:54, 6.2 km deep. So this one took only about 11 seconds to get here, one of the closest we`ve experienced so far. Thank you, beloved Oil & Gas Industry (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 17895+, June 2 at 1456 I am starting to measure how far off-frequency BSKSA is, but Qur`an chopped off the air at 1457*.

13710.020, June 2 at 1541, I do get this HQS measured, poor signal. On May 21-22, Wolfgang Büschel pinpointed *all* the BSKSA frequencies to three or even four decimal places, as in DXLD 16-21. These two he had on: 17894.999 and 13710.0145 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 9545.00, June 2 at 0700, I`m up late following completion of World of Radio 1828, so tune around, and very pleased to find an S9 signal fading to S7 with a commercial in English; right on frequency, and into ``national news headlines``, 0701 news in detail about the Solomon Islands, including some clips; police knocking on doors looking for a suspect soon to be charged; tobacco task force. 0708 mid-ID as ``News from the Solomon Islands Broadcasting Corporation, SIBC in Honiara``. 0714 repeating the headlines (seems traditional BBC format), 0715 lengthy weather forecasts for different islands; 0721 music, still songs at 0744, zzz. 

I`m re-awake at 1131 so turn on the R75 to find SIBC is *still* on its day frequency, nothing on 5020, and still S7-S9 with music, 1134 sounds like same announcer as earlier, 1137 more music before I go back to sleep. Some of it may have been in Pijin; altho always English intonation, some of the words were not understood. Never any CCI to 9545, but now there is ACI from CRI on both sides, Beijing sites: 9540 in Cantonese, 9550 in Vietnamese. I`ve never had any luck hearing SIBC 9545 before its normal 0500* and this was much better than ever on 5020 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 5765, June 1 at 0550 as I tune across WRMIBS, Brother HyStairical is talking about me again, alleging I am an Agnostic; refutes my comment that his donor-followers are ``suckers``. Also something about Napoleon I really don`t get; he seems to have done a very poor job of editing different segments together. Then check 5890 WWCR and find it totally not //, playing music only.

Alan Gale sends me a longer clip of his latest rant and says, 

``Hi Glenn, Brother Scare is just having a go at you on 11580 kHz at
the moment (2257 UT [May 31]), well at least he gave your WBCQ show a plug, even if unintentional. He was ranting on about Napoleon; thought he was going to burst a blood vessel. Managed to get about 80% of it recorded, which is attached.

Don't think he likes being called Brother Hysterical, but after reading some of the reports about him on the net, maybe 'Brother Molestair' might be a more appropriate name! :-D

FG Radio has just taken him off now thankfully, I hate to think what his blood pressure must be like; all that ranting can't be good for a man of that age``

The Napoleon reference was in DXLD 16-20, a comment from Harold Frodge, as clearly attributed, not me! ---

``13695, Overcomer Ministry via WRMI Radio Miami Int’l (presumed); 1445, 14-May; Bro. HyStairical said, "Napoleon ruled the known world." An audience BStress immediately shouted "Halleluhah! {sic}" (Napoleon fan?) B.S. then encouraged his flock to shout, and a shouting match ensured [sic]. (I wasn’t aware that Napoleon ruled Michigan in the early 1800’s. I’m fairly sure that Michigan was "known" then.) S9 (Frodge)``

It seems dear Ralph doesn`t take kindly to being mocked. BTW, credit Harold for the ``Brother HyStairical`` monicker (further propagated by Ivo Ivanov), like Allan Weiner for ``Brother Scare``; not me (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** THAILAND. 15589.972, June 1 at 0227, HSK9 off-frequency as expected from Udorn, very poor S6 signal on inside antenna vs. S9-level lightning crashes, just Thai music past 0236 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9475, June 2 at 1433, WTWW-1 with horrible modulation breakup, bits of SFAW here and there on wasted S9+20 signal. Is no one at station paying attention? Who could blame them for refusing to listen to racist garbage; if only they would refuse to transmit it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 690, June 1 at 0218 UT check, KGGF Coffeyville KS is amid a silly baseball game, mentioning Royals, so on that network from closest major-league city KC. Jim Bohannon formerly started at 0206 UT, but stupid ballgames trump everything, so could still be there when there is no game. But 0412 UT and 0546 UT rechex, it`s still about Royals, presumably post-game. 

Next night, UT June 2 at 0452 UT check, which should have been the last few minutes of JimBo, instead it`s some OTR show I don`t recognize on `When Radio Was`. Circa 0642 UT there`s a local weather break during Fox Sports --- so KGGF has definitely revamped programming, besides extending past local midnight, presumably connected with the purchase by sports-manic KWON+ Bartlesville OK cluster (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** U S A. 2097.3-CW, June 1 at 0608 UT check, beacon sending A every dekasecond can be detected, from Quartzite AZ, despite hi local storm noise level (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
