Glenn Hauser logs September 28-29, 2016

** CUBA. 6000, Sept 29 at 0510, RHC English is AWOL here, but still on overkill 6100, 6060, 5040, 6165 in decreasing order of loudness (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 4774.906, Sept 29 at 1048, S7 good signal in Spanish vs CODAR on both sides, no doubt R. Tarma, much better than I ever hear it in the evening, usually with ZY het; making the best of being awake at this hour. 1050 some music, 1058 playing `Ave María` with intermittent talk, weakening; 1101 ID with music background, mentioning kilohertz, but can`t hear a Tarma. 

No het; by now Brasil`s Congonhas would have faded out, which Dave Valko had on 4774.98, Sept 25 at 0847. Pedro Arrunátegui put Tarma on 4774.94, 8 Sept after 2235 with Angelus = other Catholic stuff.

OCX4E listed as only 500 watts; more info about SW and other canals:
Also lengthy station history page including names of everyone who has ever worked there:

** PERU. 4955.00, Sept 29 at 1103 and earlier, music at S6, no doubt R. Cultural Amauta, OAX5S, only SWBC station anywhere on frequency, as two other Peruvians on 60m also in (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU [and non]. 5024.965, Sept 29 at 1042, R. Rebelde, CUBA, 5025.0 has big het from another Spanish speaker to its low side, certainly R. Quillabamba. Really too close to separate even by LSB tuning, as Cuba is still quite stronger. If Rebelde were off, as sometimes happens, OAX7Q would be easily heard now; in the evenings, any QuillabambaRM is negligible. Measurements a month ago by Arrunátegui and Delibert put it on 5024.92 and 5024.91, so I`m not too sure my groggy R75 reading is correct? Yes, I am: it must vary, as Carlos Gonçalves, Portugal measured Q- on 5024.957, July 23 at 2145 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1844 monitoring: confirmed Wed Sept 28 at 2100 on WBCQ 7490 webcast; NOT confirmed Wed Sept 28 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB --- off the air and not due to propagation as 9265 WINB is in OK (and 9330 is on air by 2450 with Blalock the Blaster). TG for redundancy, but better not wait for the very last scheduled broadcast of WOR each week.

** U S A. 7490, UT Sept 29 before 0100, WBCQ is good with `Know Your Adversary`, but it`s more convenient for me to listen to webcast for the publicized return to the air of busted pirate Station YHWH, this time legally, having approached Allan Weiner, who made him a discount $25/hour rate for more than an hour. (WBCQ gave me the wrong time at first, one hour earlier, which I had publicized on WOR 1844, but I since tried to get the word out about the correct time.) 

Strange music for a few minutes at first, then ``Christianity, the Greatest Hoax Ever`` which he had aired countless times as a pirate. 
(Ron Howard recorded it before: 
[0259-0303 UT Dec 9, 2014 on 6280]
and most of his programs in the past contained this segment: 
[0321-0325 UT Nov 21, 2014 on 5050])

Familiar speech about how Yahweh is the only true god; and various religions, especially the one featuring one ``Jesus Christ``, are all wrong. Purports to back up his argument by original OT Biblical info, and is reading from a text, maybe written by someone else? Before long I zone out, as his religion is just as much nonsense as all the others, and there is important TV to watch, but recheck periodically. 

I wonder how he would fare in a head-to-head debate with DEJOM, who despite being defunct, is now getting a lot more SW airtime on the reborn WMLK 9275, Assemblies of Yahweh --- but is it really the same Yahweh? My impression is that WMLK is not so anti-Christian, tho godforbid I should waste much time trying to follow that either. 

Finally wraps up at 0215 with address: P O Box 722, Inyokern CA 93527, which I doubt he included while a pirate. (Inyo and Kern are the ninth and twentieth largest counties in the US, the town on the border.) Plays some more strange music --- YHWH could have benefited from a few musical breaks within, none noticed (look who`s talking); 0217 immediately switch to William Tell Overture and an `Allan Weiner Worldwide` playback from two weeks before the anniversary, i.e. late August. Now the UT Thu 01-03 on 7490 block is open again for new customers (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA carrier search Sept 29: unavoidably awake circa 1000 UT, I quickly check 774 but nothing yet. With K-index of 5 and a G2 storm in progress as long predicted, I am not expecting  much, especially over hi-latitude paths. 

Just pre-1226 sunrise at 1212-1214 UT: 
774-WSW, 738-? Maybe Tahiti, terrible splatter from 740 KRMG Tulsa, 50/25 U4, which in Sept is on day power from 1200, but from Oct not until 1230, which will help on this. Also from WSW: 702, 612, 594, 828; so looks like all Australia/New Zealand, not Japan/FE. Nothing on higher frequencies up to 1611 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15237-USB, Sept 28 at 1942, INTRUDERS, 2-ways in colloquial Spanish; which no one cares about but me, it seems (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
