Glenn Hauser logs February 5-6, 2017

** ARGENTINA [and non]. 6059.74, Feb 5 at 2342, very poor signal, no mod audible, probably SRDA Brasil, on its usual offset. Slightly stronger, I think in Spanish, another carrier close to 6060.0, must be Radio Nacional, rarely heard here, and nothing on its other possible frequencies 9690, 11710.6v, 15345v (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** CANADA. 3330-CUSB, Feb 6 at 0025, CHU is absent when it ought to be well audible, like NY Radio on 3485-USB. But 7850-CUSB is S9 of CHU. Inaudible on 14670-CUSB but could be on, not propagating (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 6100, Feb 5 at 2348, song in Chinese? S8, then M&W DJs, uncertain language; 6100, Feb 6 at 0000, S Asian song. The latter would be CRI Sinhala service, 150 kW, 234 degrees from Kunming, but AT 2330-2430 it overlaps with CRI Portuguese at 2300-2400, 500 kW, 318 degrees from Beijing site (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5010, Feb 5 at 2353, S7 JBM signal, enough to make it // 5040 RHC. Also, 5055, Feb 5 at 2354, S8 with R. Rebelde // 5025, so these are up and down 15 kHz leapfrog mixing products between 5040, and yes, Rebelde reactivated 5025 in the evening now, and must be from same site to do this, contrary to Aoki which guesses 5025 is Quivicán, 5040 is Bauta. 5040 & 5010 are in `En Contacto`, Arnie Coro rapid segment.

15230, Feb 6 at 0018, RHC is S9+25 but JBM with music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1863 monitoring: confirmed UT Monday February 6 after 0030, on WBCQ 9329.79v-CUSB, JBA. Also confirmed UT Mon Feb 6 around 0415 on Area 51 via WBCQ 5129.71-AM, also JBA, but enough to tell I finish at 0431:35, on to Hobart, so WOR must have started at 0402:35. Also confirmed UT Mon Feb 6 after 0430 on WRMI webcast, while 9955 is a JBA carrier. Next:
Tue 0030   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030   WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 1200   WRMI 9955 to SSE, 6855 to WNW
Tue 2130   WRMI 15770 to NE
Tue 2300   WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 0030   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Wed 1030   WRMI 5850 to NW, 6855 to WNW
Wed 1415.5 WRMI 9955 to SSE, 6855 to WNW
Wed 2200   WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Thu 0030   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW

** U S A. 11580, Sunday Feb 5 at 2330, WRMI is now a VOA relay station, with Radiogram #201, introed by Kim to feature Saturn rings, VOA 75th anniversary. Axually just substituting for DigiDX on hiatus. Good S9 signal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5129.62-AM, Feb 5 at 2332, WBCQBS is further off-frequency than before.

7490.11-AM, Feb 5 at 2334, WBCQ is up to here on hi side after having been close to .00 or on low side. After 0000 Feb 6, I listen to most of `Le Show`, where Harry Shearer has been given plenty of satirical fodder by acting president Thump`s subministration. Fairly good with some fading, weakening by end of hour. 

9329.79-CUSB, Feb 5 at 2336, WBCQBS is much lower than it had been. 

So all three transmitters are wandering. Also in short term, with BFO I can hear them wobbling slightly. Is this due to fluxuating commercial power supply? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3215, UT Mon Feb 6 at 0024, no signal yet from WWRB which is normally on by now UT Sun/Mon/Tue, with a Dave rant if no paid wacko politico-gospel huxters yet. Unchecked later. Try 0200 whether switch to 3195 in time to avoid colliding with WWCR. There was a 45-minute collision UT Jan 29 caught by Lou Johnson, Atlanta, as in DXLD 17-05, WOR 1863 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
