Glenn Hauser logs June 6-7, 2016

Updated June 7:

DX/SWL/Media Programs:

Alan Roe`s Hitlist of SW stations:

World of Radio schedule:

** CHINA. 12190, June 7 at 1326, CNR1 jammer, S9+10, good with flutter and CODAR QRM. No other WOOBs found up to 17 MHz, but:

11100, June 7 at 1332, CNR1 jammer, very poor S2 and // 12190. Both appear in Aoki as Sound of Hope relays of Radio Free Asia, jammed. No sign of SOH itself on precise frequency listed of 12190.228 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** OKLAHOMA. 91.7, KOSU, Tue June 7, following first Wed of month, at expected time of 1330 UT, preëmpting part of `Morning Edition`, monthly `The Living Room with Gerry Bonds`. You have to know this, since the KOSU online schedule fails to show such a divergence. There are two or three other regular airings preëmpting other shows the first week of each month. Even the LR own website fails to list all the KOSU airtimes, just the initial one, first Wednesday at 6:30 pm CT (currently 2330 UT).

Interviews this time about art in downtown OKC: a new 21C museum-cum-hotel in a former Model T factory, which is free, featuring purple penguins; and the big Matisse exhibit, occupying the entire second floor of the OKC Museum of Art, June 18-Sept 18, only one in North America, expected huge draw of visitors from all over the continent, so for first time advance ticket sales will be for specific times. Details and audio linx:

No linx there to the subject museums, but I find:
They originate in Louisville, also Cincinnati, Lexington, Durham and Bentonville. If you axually want to stay there, ``Rates for a Deluxe King start at $219``

As for Matisse,
where tickets cost only $10-$12, not jacking up the price as I expected (tho it may be separate admission from the rest of the museum). The museum director however recommends two visits and in the meantime buy and read the catalogue. The OKCMOA also has an excellent film series which I dearly wish I could patronize without having to commute from Enid (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** U S A. 13565-CW, June 6 at 1322, only HIFER beacon audible now, and for a long time before, is K6FRC in California, fading up and down vs CODAR QRM, but at peaks quite weak, JBA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 12110, June 6 at 1310, US pop music, talk in Korean, smacking of VOA service, which is correct, 333 degrees via Tinian; should have been // much stronger 11990, 21 degrees carrying on USward via Tinang (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 9370, June 6 at 1601, JBA carrier, presumably VOA Burmese as scheduled due west from Tinang at 1430-1630, and no longer blocked by WWRB which has abandoned this frequency. Ivo Ivanov had implied a VOA Burmese schedule expired June 4, but Kim Elliott says there are no changes (and furthermore, the mail I got from ``VOA Bengali`` about going onto SW must have been a prank, as it`s properly called Bangla, and remains only on MW 1575 from Thailand). Also mentioned on WOR 1828, to be corrected in 1829 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1828 monitoring: confirmed Monday June 6 at 2330 on WBCQ 9329.9-CUSB, fair. Next:
Tue 2130   WRMI 15770 to NE
Tue 2330   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Wed 1315.5 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 2100   WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Wed 2330   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW

** U S A. 690, June 6 at 0459 UT, I`m exploring what else is on frequency with KGGF nulled, i.e. favoring N/S. There`s an EWTN mention, and before 0500 UT ``New Orleans``, so it must be WQNO, which is an EWTN outlet. Also mixing with other US stations and at least two Mexicans. WQNO night pattern is tight E/W so not much signal should be reaching here to the NW. It`s 10/5 kW U4, with a CP for 9.1/2.1 U2, which will allow it to be ND daytime rather than circle tangent to the north. Callsign history shows facility 74090 became WQNO on 12/19/2012, after being WIST from 11/07/2005, and before that WTIX. See DXLD 13-35 for my previous log and discussion of its evolution (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
