Glenn Hauser logs July 8-9, 2016

** ALBANIA. 9855-, July 8 at 2324, R. Tirana music during Albanian hour is audible but beneath the humroar. July 9 at 0130 for English, nothing but the humroar is audible at S3 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15370, 15230, 11760, 9710, 9640, 9535, July 8 at 1323 check all these RHC frequencies on, as scheduled. 17580 and 17730 also listed, but 16m not really propagating yet.

Evening check, July 9 at 0124: Spanish frequencies 9535, 9710, 11670, 11760, 11840 all on; 6060 at 0131; also 13740 at 0144. As for English at 0131, 6000 is S9+25 but very undermodulated while 6165 is just barely modulated, less than 6000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, July 9 at 0104, very poor carrier from R. Chaski, with traces of talk modulation until autocutoff at 0104:18*, which is 39 seconds later than last log six nights before, July 3 until 0103:39, or slippage averaging 6.5 seconds later per (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1833 monitoring: confirmed Friday July 8 at 2130 on WRMI 15770, very poor; 2130.5 on WRMI 13695, very good. Also confirmed Fri July 8 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9329.8-CUSB, poor. Oddly, I was hearing QRM on 9329-LSB, from 4 or 5 beeps in a row repeating during the WBCQ IS and ID, but quit before 2330. Next:

** U S A. 7489.87-AM, July 9 from 0112, I`m listening to Allan Weiner Worldwide on WBCQ (first hour 0000-0100 I was listening to webcast; at 0020 he mentioned that they are `trimulcasting` also on 5130, 3250 and he has been working on a Navy TBM transmitter from 1973, for backup; at 0054 that the antenna for 7490 is a log periodic beam). 

7490v reception is good, except just as I re-tune in at 0112:12 it cuts off the air, shortly back on at 0113:56 as Allan mentions ``gremlins`` and suggests retuning to 5130, which I already had, but 5129.9-AM was poor in storm noise. Timed the delay via cosmikdebris server tonight at 17 seconds behind 7490. Never could hear even a carrier on 3250. 

Going thru e-mail shortly before 0130, Allan has some WBCQ program notes: Chris --- has changed title of `Understanding Your Adversary` to `Know Your Adversary`, Thursdays at 8-9 pm ET on 7490 (= UT Fridays 00-01). I haven`t caught it yet nor apparently has Allan heard it. Where is Chris coming from? Also, `Prison Guy Robert`s Dead Frog Radio` is midnight Saturday nights into Sundays = UT Sundays 0400-0500 on 7490. 

At 0133, mail from Dave Zantow in Wisconsin that WRNO from 7505 is splattering on WBCQ; Allan asks me to notify them about that, and so I have, rather to tech advisor Jon Gorski. (I am not having that splatter problem here, but presumably WRNO azimuth is still 20 degrees, which makes Wisconsin a prime target.) By now, WRNO signal has faded down greatly here, and by 0140, 7490 WBCQ is also fading down, as Allan says he has not yet decided what to program on 3250. Benedixion and wrapping up, 0145 back to BS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505vv, July 9 at 0116, WRNO is on again, S9+35, shoutout during `The Haven` to Matthew Oglethorpe in Louisiana (Shreveport, I believe, so how is intrastate propagation?) and the frequency won`t hold still for me to measure it, as high as 7505.22, but at 0119 on 7504.93; considerably weakening at 0134, on 7505.11 as the skip is lengthening? Reads only S9+15, gospel rock; 0137 quoting Robert Mawire (the current owner). Meanwhile, Dave Zantow in Wisconsin had e-mailed Allan Weiner on 7490, complaining that WRNO was splattering on WBCQ (altho not a problem here: see separate WBCQ log) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12105, July 8 at 2040, WTWW-3 is S9 but dead air, instead of Bibling; 9930 is off instead of Dave Ramsey. 9475 on with SFAW at S9+10. Next check July 9 at 0105, 12105 is off, 9475 is S9+25 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7780, July 9 at 0106 check, this WRMIBS is back on the air, missing last night; but I don`t check if any of the other dozen frequencies be off instead (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
