Glenn Hauser logs October 1-2, 2016

** CUBA. 5040, Oct 2 at 0127, RHC Spanish with big hum, suptorted modulation, wiggle that patchcord, while // 6060 is OK. Beats neighbor 5050 WWRB for the amount of hum (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 6145, Oct 2 at 0038, Mighty KBC via GERMANY is a bihour this week, but too weak here, a generous S9 with rock music; and BFO reveals a second slightly offset carrier under, presumably a bit of the 500 kW out of Aligarh, INDIA from 0015 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6945-USB, Oct 2 at 0045, music off and on, 0046 brief unreadable announcement over music, S6. 0101 at S8 with rock, some buzzy interruptions; 0102 long pause (and with pure SSB you never know whether a station has closed down); More pauses, 0110 cuts back on with music, 0111, ``[algo] Pirate Radio, 6,945`` synthetic male voice; 0116 ``I Love Rock & Roll``, 0117 SSTV beeps; 0119.5 back to music. Per following thread it was RFF Pirate Radio, from SSTV images:,30269.0.html
but beware: a phony Firefox update seemed to launch from this

** NORTH AMERICA. 6956-6957 -USB, approx., Oct 2 at 0044, an intermittent pirate with music so dense and no carrier, I can`t pin down where it sounds ``normal``. At 0104 it`s S5 music, no carrier. This thread is closest, as R. Free Whatever on 6955, where I could not get it clearly:,30268.0.html

** PERU. 5980, Oct 2 at 0058, JBA carrier from R. Chaski, until autocutoff at 0100:07* just as I expected, 13 seconds later than two nights ago until 0059:54*, averaging 6.5 per, and the date it surpassed 0100 was Oct 1 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UGANDA [non]. 15240, Sat Oct 1 at 1620 check on the G8, weak language, presumably R. Munansi, still via WWRB. Also at 1730, very poor. Ivo has been showing the sked as 17-19 UT Sat & Sun, but it`s still on an hour earlier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1845 monitoring: NOT confirmed Sat Oct 1 at 1430 on HLR 7265-CUSB: via UTwente, NOT on the air before or after 1430, but plenty ACI both sides, China? Confirmed Sat Oct 1 at 2230 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB, but JBA << 9265 WINB and 7490 WBCQ. Confirmed UT Sun Oct 2 at 0329, poor on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, at the 6050 Malaysia item which is at 15 minutes in, so started on time at 0315. Next:

2000-2100 Mon-Sat   11580  44 deg
* = unlisted as such on the WRMI schedules

** U S A. 9330.20, Oct 2 at 0039 check, Blalock on WBCQ is S9+20, a lot more than a bihour earlier during World of Radio. 7490+ is S9+40 with Mitch & Kathy show [as now spelt by WBCQ program sked]. 5129.8+ is S9+20 with presumed TimTron. No signal detectable on 3250v, where J.P.`s `Shortwave Saturday Night` was supposed to appear starting last week at 23-01 UT Sunday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505.3v, Oct 2 at 0132, WRNO with Mawire preaching, while a few minutes earlier it was on 7504.9v --- ooops, with BFO on as I listen, it takes off and slides back down to 7504.9 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5959.947, Oct 1 at 1249, somestation is this far off-frequency, JBA carrier. Presumably from trans-Pacific. IIRC a few years ago it was a PNG frequency, remember Radio Fly? But the only thing now in Aoki on 5960 at this hour is Xinjiang PBS, Urumqi. Grayline: sunset there 1151, sunrise here 1227, so make that trans-polar. Like a log from earlier this year:

``UNIDENTIFIED. 5959.957 approx., Feb 24 at 1354, JBA carrier, another mystery from PacificAsia?`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5997-USB, Oct 1 at 1248, INTRUDERS, Spanish 2-way, very poor, but at least no 6000 Habana (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
