Glenn Hauser logs October 9-10, 2016

** ETHIOPIA. 7138-7148, Oct 10 at 0353, DRM-style jamming noise, but cannot detect Eritrea carrier amid circa 7146, and strangely not so much of it on the plus side. This is about S8, while just up the exclusive worldwide 40m hamband, louder S9+25 DRM noise jamming from 7164 to 7186, obliterating any Eritrean carrier which might have been on its other frequency, 7175 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA. 3325, Oct 10 at 1248, the SSOB at S8-S5 in Indonesian talk, so RRI Palangkaraya; also carrier on low side of 3345-, so RRI Ternate. See also UNIDENTIFIED for many more Asian carriers (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 11600, Oct 10 at 1257, Denge Kurdistane with Kurdish music at S9+10, flutter, weaker than 11860 Yemen non. Talking after 1300, 1322 music, 1340 talk. By 1418 this is S9 to S9+10, stronger than 11860, but talking about Kurdistan. I prefer the music! Site presumably BULGARIA during this segment (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1846 monitoring: NOT confirmed Sunday Oct 9 at 2330 on 9330v-CUSB as WBCQ is inaudible, apparently off the air (7490+ is still on the air). Confirmed UT Monday Oct 10 after 0030 on WRMI, 7730, very good. Confirmed on Area 51 webcast UT Monday Oct 10 at 0300 but NOT on 5130v-AM as this WBCQ is also inaudible, off the air (while 7490 remains; no 3250v either). Confirmed UT Monday Oct 10 at 0345, amid the 0330 broadcast on WRMI 9955, S9+25 but Cuban pulse jamming audible underneath: tnx a lot, Arnie! I wouldn`t dream of jamming your boring repetitive DX program full of clichés; no need to. Next WORs:
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 [and non]. 680, Oct 10 at 1236 UT sunrise here, ``America`s number one sports station, KNBR, 680, the sports leader``. At over 1354 miles/2178 km city-to-city, not easily heard, but this is the best time for it, the only Bay Area station making it here, the other bigshots without a clear frequency (and slightly further than NYC, also rare except sometimes 880 WCBS).

A few minutes earlier I was getting news in Spanish on 680, presumably usual XEORO Sinaloa, as the lowest-frequency XE still propagating vs the inexorable westward terminator (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** YEMEN [non]. 11860, Oct 10 at 1257, Republic of Yemen Radio presumably via SAUDI ARABIA, with great music I enjoy, and S9+10 as its `season` has resumed. Same level now as 11600 Kurdistan non via Bulgaria. 1300 both into talk; 1322 still talking here. 1340 both talking (but there`s World Music to be heard on 11580 WRMI weekdays at 13-15). By 1418, 11860 YL talk has diminished to S7-S9, compared to 11600, minished to S9+10 peaks (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ZAMBIA. 11680, Monday October 10 at 0528, Voice of Hope - Africa, gospel rock ending with applause, African-accented YL preacher with today`s Bible reading from I Corinthians; 0529 transmission break of about 20 seconds! Back on to plug upcoming `Moments in Bible Prophecy` at 7:45 [CAT = 0545 UT]. As expected, 11680 is good at S9+10, while // 9680 is but a JBA carrier. Both allegedly 100 kW, the USward direxional 315 degree antenna on 11680 making all the difference. Scheduled 05-08 UT Mon-Fri on both. No QRM at all, and per Aoki the only problem could be North Korea but it stops Japanesing at 0500. Now, is there any secular programming on the schedule, or at least quasi-secular? Of course not! Except for hard-core intervals like MiBP, the tri-hour is `Rev. Joyce Mwanza, Music in the Morning - LIVE`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search, Oct 10, UT:
At 1219, 774-NW, 747-NW, 693-NW
At 1221, 657-??, 594-NW (distinct from 594+ spur from local KZLS 1640)
At 1223, 828-NW, 873-NW, 882-NW
At 1226, 1098-W
At 1227, 1116-WSW
At 1229, 1566-NW
All on the DX-398 with internal ferrite antenna only. Our sunrise today: 1235 (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1480+, Oct 10 at 0552 UT, low audible het (LAH) looping E/W, so not either of my closests, KBXD and KQAM (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4766, Oct 10 at 1252, open carrier at S5, stronger than 4750. Suspected idling RTTY from western North America, as discussed in DXLDs 16-27 and 16-16.

From 1248 to 1255 Oct 10, scans of 120, 90, and 60m finds more carriers, most on usual spots from Asia, skipping the major ones on 4835 Australia and 4940 China:

2325, 3345-, 4750, 4790, 4800, 4810, 4820(2), 4870-, 4885, 4895, 4910, 2485, 4920, 4970, 5010, 5040, 5050 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11770.921, Oct 10 at 0534, open carrier with flutter, making me suspect it`s real, but gone once I unplug my router, possibly by coincidence. Nigeria, maybe? Only thing scheduled on 11770 now is Urumqi (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
