Glenn Hauser logs November 20, 2016

** ANGUILLA. 11775, Nov 20 at 1321, PMS modulation is quite distorted (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11840, Nov 20 at 0659, renegade RHC transmitter is still on in Spanish, news headlines at S9+20, along with much weaker but // parasites on 11830 & 11850. Quick check of other channels: none on 9 MHz, but 6000 has also switched to Spanish until 0700*, and going back to 11840, now it`s off too. Only 6100 remains on with weekly Sunday Esperanto, theme music at 0701. 

11840, Nov 20 at 1317, RHC on again this morning contrary to schedule, VG pulling its 11830 & 11850 parasites with it. 11840 is off at 1517 check while all these remain on: 9640, 9820, 11760, 15370, 17730, 17750.

11760, Nov 20 at 1603, RHC Esperanto confirmed still on here Sunday at time-shifted hour. The third airing remains to be confirmed; has been scheduled Sunday 2230 on 15370, normally not making a timeshift (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA. 9525.9, Nov 20 at 1336, again today no signal from VOI. Atsunori Ishida still hasn`t updated to show anything since Nov 15 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 7345, Nov 20 at 0708, news in German with sounders, fair S9+10. One thing for sure: it can`t be Deutsche Welle. It`s RRI as scheduled following 0630 English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 12035.012, Nov 20 at *1326:37, VOT cuts on in time today, IS with frequent YL English IDs interspersed. 1330 accurate timesignal, sign-on for 12035; only S3-S5 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UGANDA [non]. 15240, Sunday November 20 at 1612, no signal from WWRB with R. Munansi, while 15825 WWCR is fairly audible. Still not at 1645 recheck. Maybe will come on circa 1700 after this report (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7570, Sunday November 20 at 0702, WRMI is S9+40 but barely modulated with hum, and turning up the volume, it`s Eddie Startz! So the PCJ Radio International special `From Radio Nederland Archives #4` is playing here on North American beam in the nightmiddle. Was supposed to be 06-08 UT on 7780 toward Europe. That signal is JBA here, but at 0707 I do manage to // it to 5765 with Brother Scare, as Alan Roe in England also lamented 7780 with BS, no PCJ. This was a repeat try after another failure a few weeks ago. And allegedly will be to NAm UT Monday Nov 21 at 01-03 on 7570.

5950 still // 5850 WRMIs at almost equal strength, Sunday Nov 20 at 0704 with show from a Mainstreet Church of Christ. Probably `Worship in Your Home` as originally on 5850 and suspended 7730.

15440, Nov 20 at 1517, no signal from sporadically active WRMIBS frequency. Normally it`s #13 transmitter, changing from 7730 at 1400, but 7730 has not been on at all, AFAIK for some three weeks (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search Nov 20, UT:
At 1258, 702-WSW, 738-SW, 774-WSW
At 1259, 792-WSW (and 738 is soon gone, but vs huge 740 KRMG Tulsa)
Our Enid sunrise today: 1314 UT, currently latening by one minute per diem (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
