Glenn Hauser logs October 3, 2016

** ETHIOPIA [and non]. 7170-7175-7180, Oct 3 at 0348, DRM jamming, but cannot detect any Eritrean carrier on 7175 amid it. 

BTW, the second Eritrean transmitter of Program I is now reported on 7146.555 by Wolfgang Büschel at 0510, but nothing when I listen earlier. That was first heard at 1645 Sept 29 by Thorsten Hallmann; no jamming against it yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 650, UT Mon Oct 3 at 0336, `La Hora Nacional` talking about Facebook; audible with WSM nulled, and peaks from SW, so very likely XETNT, Los Mochis, Sinaloa, with that state`s addendum to the national LHN. There are nine other XEs on 650, but it seems XETNT is the only one I ever hear. There is a beep as transition every minute or so, outro segment as having come from La Suprema Corte de la Nación, why? 0338 into song, and now I am hearing the same music under KCSP on 610, i.e. sibling station in Guasave, Sinaloa, XEGS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO [and non]. 740, UT Mon Oct 3 at 0350, same cantante segment as just heard on 780 from `Coahuila en la Hora Nacional`, so this is XEQN Torreón, 10/1 kW --- and the one making that horrible low audible heterodyne against KRMG Tulsa, which is overridden when nulled as much as possible. Take that, Rush repeat! They can`t get enough of that SOB at KRMG (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 780, UT Mon Oct 3 at 0341, with WBBM nulled, discussion of Lucha Libre [fake wrestling], masks, etc., 0346 ending this segment, 0347 ID as ``Coahuila en La Hora Nacional``, on to a segment about a cantante, Luís somebody who is really from Matamoros, Tamaulipas, but never mind that off-topic. The only Coahuilan on 780 is: XEWGR, Monclova, 10000/250 watts (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 1570, UT Mon Oct 3 at 0332, XERF with `Coahuila en la Hora Nacional`, first topic ``inicio de rock & roll en Coahuila``. Heavy QRM de Missouri and plenty of other US stations abolishing this as a clear channel (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1845 monitoring: confirmed UT Monday October 3 from 0301 on Area 51 webcast, and soon on WBCQ 5129.847-AM, S9 with no swishy QRM now unlike earlier. Also confirmed UT Mon Oct 3 from 0330 on WRMI, 9955, S9+25. Next:
Mon 2330   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 1100   WRMI 9955 to SSE
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. 11580, Monday Oct 3 at 1314 & 1414, WRMI still with World Music during these hours on a weekday; back to BS after 1500. Still before and after 1700, nothing but BS also on 13695, so also on weekdays World Music is gone from its best frequency here. Overcomer overkill is restored (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1170, Oct 3 at 0345 UT, gospel huxter under KFAQ Tulsa, making slow SAH with it, so WWVA Ohio is still out of whack, deliberately? Failing to protect us from itself (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA carrier search Oct 3, not from FE but DU: 
At 1207, 702-WSW but no 774 now
At 1209, 774-WSW, 882-WSW, 891-WSW
At 1223, 738-SW, likely Tahiti. As expected, the KRMG 740 splash isn`t quite as bad now on October night pattern until 1230 UT/

I continue to detect these on the DX-398 with internal ferrite only. A complete x9-kHz bandscan (1 kHz offset with BFO) on the R75 with 100+ foot E-W longwire could not hear any of them (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1330+ and 1350-, Oct 3 at 0353 UT, the rapid clicking noises I reported before on the NRD-545 with stationary antenna, I now also hear on the DX-398 so can get a bearing on them: east/west on both, presumably from some out-of-whack 1340 station. Closest along that axis is KJMU Sand Springs OK, if active, but never notice the spurs in daytime. Beyond that, a couple in northern AR, a couple more in southern MO, many further east; two in northern NM, one in northern AZ, etc., etc. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
