Glenn Hauser logs June 3-4, 2016

** AUSTRALIA. 15240, June 4 at 0022, RA is poor at S4, and rapid pulsing mostly on low side. This always seems to be the case at least on the home rigs, and am not sure if it`s local or ChiCom jamming. Admittedly the same pulses appear at some other spots below 15240 on 19m, and also e.g. around 13760. Anyhow, RA is much better on // 17840 aimed right at us than 15240 aimed at Alaska (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 18980, Friday June 3 at 1337, weak S2-S3 talk, // an echo apart from 11785, so it`s a CNR1 jammer, here against RFA Tibetan via Kuwait, which is not audible, but indeed scheduled on 18980 during the 13-14 hour on Tuesdays and Fridays only. Have been looking for any of these for some weeks with no propagation before 1400. Depending on which hour between 11 and 14, and which day of week, the other possibilities, as in Aoki, are: 18930, 18990, 19000, 19010 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11880, June 3 at 1259 tune-in, RHC Spanish S9+20 on wrong frequency with ID, theme, but cutting to dead air back and forth, during announcement that 9850 is closing, and I hear 15370 already on. Then news of some Venezuelan crisis. So has 11880 been running since *1100? It`s supposed to appear only at 22-24 for the African service. Now it`s off by 1302, while 11760 remains the only active frequency on 25m. Too late to figure out which frequency the 11880 transmitter should have occupied (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** GREECE. 11645, June 4 at 0015, Greek music on poor S4 signal, not usually on air before sunrise, but here instead of 9935, where I tuned first and guessed VOG was off for the weekend. But // 9420 also on and much stronger. In deep summer 11645 might work overnight, and provide more frequency diversity than two 9 MHz channels only 515 kHz apart, albethey on somewhat different azimuths (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 9545, June 3 at 0600, no signal from SIBC, like there was 18-23 hours earlier, presumably back to 5020 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1828 monitoring: confirmed Friday June 3 at 2130 on WRMI 15770, very good! And from 2130.5 on WRMI 13695, excellent. Also confirmed after 2330 on WBCQ 9330-CUSB, JBA on the DX-375 portable in downtown Enid for First Friday activities; couldn`t get the scan to stop on it at all via the BST-1 caradio, which also tends to get a hashblob on this frequency.

** U S A. 7489.94, UT Sat June 4, WBCQ in `Allan Weiner Worldwide` but Larry Will is substituting, a.k.a. cosmikdebris, along with crazyjane. Taking calls to his AC 301 number. At 0044 says they are working on expanding programming on 9330 to daytime and more in the night. // 5129.9-AM registers S8, but buried in the noise level, and no signal audible on 3250v (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Re 690, KGGF Coffeyville KS, trying to figure out their new schedule, another look at their obviously incomplete and at least partially outdated ``lineup`` 
instead of a true schedule shows `When Radio Was` is already on it, contradictorily along with JimBo at the same hour, 11-midnight (04-05 UT):

``The Jim Bohannon Show (9pm-Midnight)
When Radio Was       (11pm - Midnight)`` [sic]

And further: 
``Listen to the KC Chiefs, KC Royals and K-State Wildcats on KGGF!``

Since the sked doesn`t make clear whether it is for weekdays only, or not (but some programs are obviously not on weekends), I figured `WRW` might have been intended for weekends only when there be no JimBo. But not so, heard on a Wednesday night = UT Thursday. So maybe the first two hours of JimBo still show up when there is absolutely no alternative of stupid ballgames. The third hour is normally for open phones rather than with guest (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1700, June 3 at 0622 UT check, no sign of Tejana music from KKLF; just two stupid sports talk stations mixing, one of them Fox, no doubt KVNS TX and KBGG IA. Ward Elliott in Richardson TX has been checking out his local and reported to me May 31 at 2124 UT:

``An update about 1700, no buzz heard last night at 4:40am local time [0940 UT]. However KKLF was off the air and KVNS Brownsville sports was in clear.`` And at 0203 UT June 1: ``1700 Dallas, off air now`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
