Glenn Hauser logs October 20, 2016

** CANADA. 7850 & 3330, Oct 20 at 0442, CHU is still running carriers but no pipping modulation, which is normally on USB. 14670 & 7850 still silent at 1255 October 20. Following my previous report, Richard Langley in NB says at 1207 UT Oct 20:

``I contacted the National Research Council and this is their brief reply: "Hi Richard, Thanks for your email. We are aware of the problem and are working on a fix. John" If I learn more, I'll pass it along`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUAM. 11585, Oct 20 at 1400, south Asian song at S9+10, much stronger than 11580 WRMI, upon which it collides until 1330 or 1345. 1406, W&M dialog. Scheduled at 1400-1415 M-F is Garhwali, 290 degrees from KTWR. EiBi language list says it`s spoken by 3 megapersons in India`s Uttarakhand & Himachal Pradesh (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 5935, Oct 20 at 1301, Shiokaze music at S8 from JAPAN, but too weak to try to copy English on Thursday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 11600, Oct 20 at 1258, Chinese talk mixing with Kurdish music. Aoki shows until 1300 it could be RTI in Amoy, and/or ChiCom jamming against Sound of Hope relaying Radio Free Asia in Mandarin as late as 1600 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** KYRGYZSTAN. 4009.843, Oct 20 at 1249, JBA carrier, presumably Birinchi Radio, Bishkek Net-1, off-frequency again after having approached 4010.0. Then I see this from Ron Howard, Calif., as 4009.8: ``on Oct 19 & 20 they are now back to again being off frequency. What happened?`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 9480, Oct 20 at 0441, no signal from MWV, presumed off again (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 780, Oct 20 at 1231 UT, day-of-week song(?), 1232 UT interjecting ``It`s Pete``, i.e. Pete 94-3, the translator KSPI Stillwater is now relaying, mostly music instead of sports talk (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 930, Oct 20 at 1233 UT, WKY OKC, during Spanisht talkshow instead of music, is still hiccuping at the rate of 44 per minute, quick carrier breaks which they have apparently decided to ignore (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 11580, Thu Oct 20 at 1304, WRMI with Jeff White acknowledging a long string of reception reports, which at closing he says are from the website form, but will get QSL cards in the mail eventually: behind but catching up with some help. Presumably this was `Viva Miami` but no outro as such nor any `Miami Vice` theme heard, maybe still used for opening? After WNYW-style ID, 1315 on to World Music fill. Skedgrid does not show VM at this time, just WM. Also has CCI from KTWR in Vietnamese (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, Oct 20 at 0445, WTWW-2 is on, along with its parasitic spurs on 5072.1 and 5097.9, of course. Sounds like a parody drama about financial collapse, Albania in chaos; intervening Hammond organ riffs soon reveal it`s `Unshackled`, and not a parody of Unshackled! But SO campy! Outro as program #3,117; 0450 WTWW ID, and on to another Unshackled, #3,118. All is somewhat overmodulated/distorted. Next check at 0620, S9+40 and still distorted as Ted is playing music requests. I seriously suspect such programming is canned and not live; the requestors never fully identified could even be made up (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ZAMBIA [and non]. 11681.0, Oct 20 at 0456, JBA carrier as I am checking for Voice of Hope - Africa; that comes on 11680 at *0457 making a 1 kHz het with it, 0458 starts VOH-A IS & ID loop (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search, October 20, UT;
all loop WSW, u.o.s., i.e. most likely Australia or New Zealand:

1203, 774
1205, 702 (2 carriers beating), 693-NW? (too much KGGF), 684
1209, 594, 576
1210, 612, 657
1211, 729
1211, 738-SW (stronger than others, likely Tahiti, too much 740 KRMG)
1212, 828, 837
1214, 846, 882, 891
1215, 1035, 1098-W
1220, 765, 756, 774, 747
1221, 738-SW, still

UNIDENTIFIED. 800, Oct 20 at 0505 UT, Spanish talk by woman about ``robo de identidad`` (identity theft); with KQCV OKC nulled. I am trying to get a definite ID to confirm XEROK is still on the air, so again at 0559 UT: XE NA by kidchoir starts, and it`s the multi-verse version for 5 minutes until fading, and by 0605 playing another song (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1360, Oct 20 at 0501 UT, dominant signal from NW/SE saying it`s been on air since June 1, 1983, but fades before identified, seemingly with a W- call. So I check out stations in MS, AL but don`t find a matching airdate; if not K-, maybe LA, AR or CO? No hits there either. Possibly date concerned a program rather than a station (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
