Glenn Hauser logs November 8-9-10, 2016

** CHINA. 7410, Nov 10 at 1357, nothing but CRI in Japanese audible. Is Sea Breeze still here at 13-14, including English on Thursday? Should not be (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5025, Nov 9 at 0133 check, R. Rebelde is off again. At 1157 it`s on again, enumerating the states won by Trump and by Clinton --- mispronouncing a lot of them (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6075, Nov 9 at 0135, RHC is still off this frequency, after trying it at least on Nov 7, so are they going to use it this season or not? 6060 is on and in proper Spanish instead of English.

17750, Nov 9 at 1413, RHC Spanish is here on new frequency, // much stronger 17730 & 17580, so it`s not ex-one of them (but maybe ex-15230? Still on // 15370). Looking for a B-16 schedule on the RHC website, but as of 1617 UT November 10, still the old A-16 one, April-November 2016 at

From the Programacion link on the same Interesantes drop-down there is NO program-title info, but instead another frequency/transmission schedule but it`s undated.

It does show 17750 at 12-16 to ``Buenos Aires``, but I fear it is very old rather than very new as it shows some other frequencies no longer in use (unless they are about to come back) such as 9820 Spanish mornings, and 11670 for English at 20-21 (so far, that has stayed on 15140). Nov 10 at 1506, 17750 is on again, but barely audible.

6165, 6100, 6060, 5040, Nov 10 at 0659 tune in at the end of six hours of English repeats, these are already dead air while 6000 has switched to Spanish for a few seconds before off at 0700*, and then all the others are soon turned off too (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ERITREA. 7146.505, Nov 10 at 1359, JBA carrier vs QRhAM, presumed VOBME, by long path on characteristic off-frequency. Ron Howard in California has been hearing this: 

``7146.55, VOBME (presumed), 1407-1429, Nov 8. Stronger than 7175; with HOA music/singing; not // 7175. My audio of HOA music/singing at 
Recently noted both 7146.55 & ex: 7185 were hit with strong white 
noise digital jamming (DRM noise?), consistently at 1501, as if on a 

Nothing here on 7175 or 7185, the other VOBME frequency. Asmara sunset today: 1452 UT; Enid sunrise: 1304 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. It`s been a chilly night, but bright sun by 1518 UT Nov 10, provoking some tropo enhancement. Here`s something new on RF 42:
a 7-program multiplex, mostly decoding with some lapses, so I quickly tune thru them. PSIP ID for all of them is KBZC-LD, DTV 42-1 thru -7. 
42-1, has an E/I docu, Animal Rescues
42-2, with ads, apparently infomercial
42-3, more ads, soon BUZZR in LR, games
42-4, Country bug in LR, music videos
42-5, QVC
42-6, a different QVC, Q bugs in LL
42-7, LCH (?) bug in LR, shopping

So where is this? shows Oklahoma City, 7.2 kW horizontal only, but no subchannel info. Then to ---

City of license is shown as Enid! But coverage map shows site really in the northern OKC antenna farm:
and does not reach anywhere near Enid. It`s one of those proliferating DTV America outlets; lineup details:

42-1    42.1    480i    DD2.0     Bounce TV    
42-2    42.2    480i    DD2.0     Laff    
42-3    42.3    480i    DD2.0     BUZZR    
42-4    42.4    480i    DD2.0     The Country Network    
42-5    42.5    480i    DD2.0     QVC    
42-6    42.6    480i    DD2.0     QVC Plus    
42-7    42.7    480i    DD2.0     Liquidation Channel

Lost by 1530 UT. Tho from nearest major market OKC, I have *never* seen this before on either of my antennas aimed toward OKC. Hepburn`s tropo maps show marginal enhancement east of Oklahoma City and Enid, but not directly between us. Nothing on 36 from another OKC LD, KUOK-CD, I have seen before, 7.3 kW, so must be a very selective duct. I was also getting insufficient signals on various channels correlating with Tulsa/Muskogee market such as 11, 20, 28, notwithstanding the 900 kW Tulsa station on RF 42! (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOMALILAND. 7120.0, Nov 9 at 1412, S7 carrier is still on from presumed R. Hargeisa. They supposedly take a 14-15 UT break between afternoon and evening transmissions. As usual in our morning by longpath, I can`t detect any modulation. Also Nov 10 still on 1357 past 1401. 

On another date, Ron Howard in Calif. did hear it going off at 1400: 7120, R. Hargeisa, 1355-1400*, Nov 8. HOA music/singing; off after National Anthem (marching band); poor. My audio of NA at 
My local sunrise was at 1439 UT and Hargeisa sunset was also at 1439 UT (5:39 PM local time in Hargeisa)`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1851, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH AFRICA. 17770.071, Nov 10 at 1506, JBA carrier with traces of modulation. HFCC shows it`s Channel Africa in Swahili this hour, 250 kW, 19 degrees from Meyerton. SENTECH isn`t very technically adept, achieving such offness more and more (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15730, Nov 9 at 2000, VOA French via Greenville, ID mentioning FM relay frequencies in several African cities ``and don`t forget shortwave`` but no frequencies worth mentioning for that! Into news, and marred by IADs a few times per minute.

15220 // 11720, Nov 9 at 2002, VOA news in English, 2005 into rock music from VOA One. What became of Kriyòl?? This is Wednesday, not Saturday or Sunday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1850 monitoring: confirmed Tuesday November 8 at 2130 on WRMI 15770, fair at S9. Also confirmed UT Wed Nov 9 at 0030 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB, fair. Also confirmed Wed Nov 9 at 2200 on WBCQ, 7490-AM, fair-to-good with deep fades. Shifting an hour later has helped propagation a lot to the west, much closer to sunset. However, next airing, UT Thu Nov 10 at 0030 on WBCQ, 9330 is inaudible; may well be on but not propagating, as 9265 WINB is but a JBA carrier.

Full updated schedule including satellite, webcasts, AM & FM:

** U S A. 5950, Nov 9 at 0133, WRMI with Brother Scare at S9+20/30 level, at least as good as on // 5850, S9+20. As of Nov 10, WRMI skedgrid still shows #12 xmtr, 5850 as 315 degrees and #14, 5950 at 181 degrees, which until this week, had been quite weak here. Furthermore, 7730 is again OFF the air, was #13 at 285 degrees. Suspect that #14, 5950 has taken over the 285 antenna greatly increasing its signal here, altho in a further shuffle it could be via one even further clockwise. Next check, Nov 9 at 1152, 7730 is still off, permanently?? 5950 with Wavescan, and still at same signal level as 5850 BS.

5950, Nov 10 at 0700, WRMI with `Viva Miami` mailbag, VG // 5850 as earlier. Not sure whether a new or old episode, but the first three acknowledgements are from Woodstock IL, Chennai, India, and Atlanta, Georgia. Again unexpected for these two to be //, and 7730 is still off. Skedgrid does not account for any of this. 7730 shows World Music this hour; 5950 Overcomer; 5850 Worship in your Home on Sundays with rest of week unspecified.

All other WRMI frequencies audible after 0700 are in Brother Scare: 5015, 5765, 6855, 7570, 7780, 9955, 11530, 11580 (and 9395 as always with unTruNews). Next check at 1353, 5850 & 5950 are still BSing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, Nov 8 at 1956 past 2006+, KVOH Spanish evangelism is still running more than an hour past still listed weekdaily ``cerrar`` time of 1900. They are so flexible. Turning on the BFO, I can tell the carrier frequency is ailing, rapidly vibrating. Another check Nov 9: it`s already off at 1958 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
