Glenn Hauser logs November 30-December 1, 2016

** CUBA. 9710 & 9535, Dec 1 at 0510, open carrier/dead air from RHC Spanish frequencies, not turned off at 0500, but not switching to English either like sometimes. 

11840, Dec 1 at 0513, RHC Spanish still running here somewhat undermodulated but S9+20, plus the parasitic spurs on 11830 & 11850 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7330, UT Thu Dec 1 at 0413 tune-in, it`s the YHWH guy, at S8 but deep fades. His imperious no-nonsense voice is easily recognized, and occasional references to Yahweh (Yahway?) confirm the source. It seems that around 0400 UT on the 7 MHz expanded-broadcast band is his most active time; I previously heard on 7410, and by Ron Howard also on 7335. No reports yet of any other times or any other frequencies. Mostly unreadable but I keep tuned and check periodically, finding him still going at 0426, 0450, 0500; 0522 coming in better, saying there is no independent historical record that J. C. even existed, only in the fables of the New Testament. Still at 0550, but off by 0558. So maybe on for about two hours, rather than one.

Ron Howard monitored a previous broadcast closely and found that IDs as ``Station YHWH`` had been edited out of his recorded sermons. Possibly attempting to distance himself from the ``station`` already busted by the FCC a couple years ago, but it`s obviously all the same, so I am going to continue to refer to this as [Station YHWH] until and unless he come up with another new name (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** U S A. 7192-LSB, Dec 1 at 0421, calling CM1ZB (Cuban novice?) but no reply; it`s a net also open for check-ins, ``Ham Nation post-show net``, after a Wed 9 pm webcast on Twit(?) featuring Bob Heil (without his organ?), Gordon West, et al. NCS is in FL, KC7FPF, addresses everyone as Sir. ARRL lookup shows: YOUNG, KEVIN A, KC7FPF, Bronson, FL 32621. Ran across this while looking unsuccessfully for Eritreans (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1853 monitoring: confirmed at 1440 Nov 30 the Wednesday 1415.5 airing on WRMI 9955, good. Also confirmed Wed Nov 30 at 2200 on WBCQ 7490, good (BTW, no ID fired just before it, perhaps because Financial Survival was running a bit late). Busy preparing next WOR, missed checking WBCQ 9330v-CUSB UT Thu Dec 1 at 0030, but at 0100, detectable JBA with Blalock the Blaster, so WOR was probably on, but as is becoming normal now, hardly propagating.

** U S A. 9955, Wed Nov 30 at 1445 following WORLD OF RADIO, finally a new episode of `Viva Miami` on WRMI. Jeff says some FL ham club groups have been visiting Okeechobee, and he interviews a young person outside, sounds like a YL, Ridley McDonald? who seems more into geocaching than ham radio. Remarx that many hams have no experience with HF and vacuum tubes, so seeing WRMI is an eye-opener. Fills out the time by acknowledging names from whom reception reports have been received, and promises QSLs; an intern has been catching up with verifying and Jeff has a stack of them in front of him about to go into the mail today (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, Nov 30 at 0640, WTWW-2 is on with Xmas music, only S9+20 and carrier is wobbling vs stable BFO as confirmed vs WWV and any normal carriers. Expect a lot more airtime for the duration in order to overkill us with Xmas music.

5830, Nov 30 at 0643, WTWW-1 with SFAW audio breaking up, S9+30 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5030, Dec 1 at 0515, JBA carrier. If a broadcaster, this is mystifying as nothing is listed anywhen in EiBi or HFCC. I`m certainly not going to assume it`s R. Virgen de la Alta, Huamachucho, Perú as in Aoki, as some list-loggers are prone to believe, Aoki lacking any annotations of inactivity; since it`s really been off the air for many years. Doesn`t even make the deleted list in the 2016 DSWCI Domestic Broadcasting Survey, which does show that Bhutan and Sarawak have not been heard on 5030 since 2011y. That listing does not go back before 2011. Burkina Faso is in the DXLD archives still active on 5030 in 2010y (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
