Glenn Hauser logs January 7, 2017

** AUSTRALIA. 4910, Jan 7 at 0816, VP carrier vs CODAR on both sides, VL8T, Tennant Creek still on day frequency before 0830 switch to 2325. At about the same level this early is 4835, VL8A Alice Springs, too close to 4840 WWCR, but will not QSY. The third station day frequency, 5025, VL8K Katherine, is of course blocked by Rebelde unless rarely AWOL, but normally audible later on 2485. All three stations on five frequencies are destined for extinxion at Janend, unless internal opposition to ABC plans succeed (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15140, Jan 7 at 1904, undermodulated choking Arabic from RHC to Chicago, only S9; collides with irregular Oman also in Arabic as noted elsewhere, but no trace of that here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ETHIOPIA. 7236.571, Jan 7 at 1358, poor carrier here, presumed the constantly varying R. Ethiopia by long path (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 17640, Jan 7 at 1838 check, no signal from MWV English, but it is on at 2048 during the repeat, discussion of Bible correspondence courses for Africans, now S4-S7 and the OSOB, its major competitor, 17790 WRMI having evacuated, and its other, 17775 KVOH being silent on Saturdays, or supposedly everyday after 1900 but sometimes runs later (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 15300, Jan 7 at 2054, a signal where normally there is none --- and it`s [Station YHWH], Martin Elliott with same old stuff on a new frequency, poor at S3-S5 but then surges up to S9, 2057 mentions ``California time, Universal time`` as if schedule info but can`t copy details in a fade; reads a short letter, then 2059 refers to his ``53-page document`` and apparently starts over reading it, about ``false God, Jesus``, ``Christianity, greatest hoax ever foisted upon Mankind``. Somewhat undermodulated and distorted but quite readable at fade-ups. I had just checked 9275 in case he showed up on competing Yahweh frequency of WMLK. Anyhow we know this Yahweh guy does not take Sabbathdays off (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, Jan 7 at 0814, JBA carrier in splash from 5025 Cuba, no doubt SIBC on night frequency and propagable (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 11825, Jan 7 at 1907, WRMIBS is back on after AWOL yesterday, also // 11580 and 15770. Altho sufficient, it`s a relief that the much stronger daytime blasters across North America, 13695 and 15440 (and 17790, not so much) are the ones BS gave up --- except that going with them from 13695 to much weaker 11580 are the 2100-2200 panoply of programs (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 9690, Sat Jan 7 at 1839, REE is still missing from North American frequency, which on Sat is scheduled to start at 1500, and fading up enough by now. 15390 & 15500 to elsewhere are fairly audible. Recheck 2102, however, 9690 is finally reactivated after at least a week, now good at S9+10 for REE`s most important show, `Tablero Deportivo`. 15390 & 15500 remain fairly audible at S9, and I can even detect the fourth transmitter on 11685, S5-S6 vs constant RTTY on its hi side from NAA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UGANDA [non]. 15240, Sat Jan 7 at 1903, poor signal S5 in presumed Luganda, from Radio Munansi via WWRB; no signal at 2054 recheck, as the exact schedule seems to remain flexible (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1859 monitoring: confirmed Sat Jan 7 at 2332 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB, when signal surged up after JBA carrier from 2330. Next:
Sun 0410v  WA0RCR 1860-AM ND 
Sun 1130   HLR 9485-CUSB to SW [off for maintenance this week only]
Mon 0030   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Mon 0400v  WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0430   WRMI 9955 to SSE  
Tue 0030   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030   WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 1200   WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 1030   WRMI 5850 to NW [NEW]
Tue 2130   WRMI 15770 to NE
Tue 2300   WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 0030   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Wed 1415.5 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 2200   WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Thu 0030   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW

Also check WRMI airings, especially 9955, for possible // on 6855.

Also allegedly at random times on WBCQ 5130v-AM during Radio Jennifer service expanded hours, altho not noted lately. Updated full WOR sked:

** U S A. 6855, Sat Jan 7 at 1401, WRMI is starting a gospel huxter, and // 9955. Seems reliably at this hour to be duplicating 9955; therefore I am expecting the Wed 1415.5 broadcast of WORLD OF RADIO also to be added on 6855. May also apply to the Tue 1200 and Thu 1230; but not the Mon 0430 WOR airings, when 6855 has been // 5985 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5810, Jan 7 at 0811, Spanish WEWN is off! Had been on as usual earlier in evening. I wonder if they always rest now in the nightmiddle when audience is minimal? I am normally fast asleep by this hour. Not propagational, as other US stations on 5830, 5850, 5890 are inbooming (which is not always the case as MUF plummets).

12010 & 12090 approx., Jan 7 at 1908, buzzy spurs with no specific carriers from the 12050 WEWN Spanish transmitter which itself has horrible buzz on it. Modulation peaks on the spurs match (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9930, Sat Jan 7 at 1901 check, no signal from WTWW-2, so no `Theater Organ of the Ozarx` this week. Other WTWWs 9475 and 12105 are loud. 9930 is still off at 2103 recheck (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UZBEKISTAN. 7600, Jan 7 at 1353, open carrier at S7-S9, maybe JBM, 1400 talk and now also a weaker signal on 7635, as both were heard after 1400 Jan 5. Aoki listed 7600 as BBC Hindi via Thailand, but checking these out Jan 6, Wolfgang Büschel says per latest HFCC info, both are via Tashkent, Uzbekistan, and both BBC Hindi, apparently testing 7635 (and he says also 7530; but nothing about my other unID carrier on 7670) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
