Glenn Hauser logs March 30-31, 2017

** ANGOLA. 4949.72, March 31 at 0105, RNA with music at S9+15. Good modulation since latest hiatus (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL [non]. 6180 & 11780, March 31 at 0058, RNA/RNB is still silent, for the eleventh night in a row (presumably, altho I missed checking on the tenth). 6180 however bears the JBA carrier from CRI East Turkistan (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** COLOMBIA. 5910, March 31 at 0102, no signal from Alcaraván Radio now that there`s no CCI from Romania. Still off at 0559. However,

6010.133, March 31 at 0559, music at S6-S8, presumed sibling station The Voice of Thy Conscience (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13740, March 30 at 2201, finally catch an RHC frequency announcement in Spanish, as if opening the multi-target tarde program, but really amid it, in typical Soviet-style disorder: 13740, 11670, 11760, 11840, 9535, 9710, 5040. Those seem about correct tho I don`t have a chance to confirm each one right now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 7435, March 31 at 0556, pulse jamming just in case, but wall-of-noise has now found R. Martí on 7365 at this hour, which however is atop the jamming here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUAM. 9475, March 31 at 1325, very poor signal with talk, while WTWW is still safely on night frequency 5830. In A-17, KSDA is now scheduled 12-14 on 9475 in various Chinese languages. So they are willing to risk collisions when WTWW forgets to switch to 5830 at night (Glenn Hauser, oK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 6040, March 31 at 1300, Shiokaze opening with music is very poor at S6 on latest new frequency, tnx to Ron Howard tip, since March 26 for first portion of A-17. We are now into the yearpart when 6 MHz is just too low for decent propagation this far into the dayside (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 6185, March 31 at 0057, Radio Educación announcing a long list of affiliate stations around the country, all or mostly on FM. Wish I had been recording to copy them all. Are they 100% relays? S9+25 and good modulation, much improved. Hope XEPPM can keep that up, especially with no Brazilian ACI from 6180. Note that DF goes on DST April 2, so this will be closing at 0500* instead of 0600*.

Strangely, they have two rather different websites:

Where I find no affiliate listings. Monthly program sked grids are at
the lower one for SW 6185 only, at 18-24 local, soon to be 23-05 UT. But we think it`s often on air before 23, presumably carrying MW 1060 program feed; not in local mornings (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 7425, March 31 at 1258, RNZI is VP with QSY announcement to 5995, which from *1259 is relatively good as to be expected (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGET)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 5810, March 31 at 0604 UT as I am tuning past WEWN, the DJ is talking about two new Catholic frequencies about to launch ``muy pronto`` in Oklahoma City! And will carry EWTN. No details beyond that. Anything likely in the OKC listings here?

Format column makes no distinxion for Catholic among other Christians, or even ``Religious`` (safely assuming that too is nothing but some Christian ilk). However ``Spanish Christian`` applies only to 93.9 KWDW-LP. Nothing on its website about EWTN nor any other frequency:

I don`t find any affiliate list linked at
but I do notice that the clock in lower right, clicking second-by-second, with ``times in different cities`` is way off, and apparently not reading my computer clock either. At 1619 UT it claims the time in Miami is 9:00:00 am, and also in Bogotá, which is one hour behind Miami, etc., etc. Don`t you believe anything else asserted by WEWN (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 90.1 FM, March 31 at 0540 past 0550 UT, KUCO dead air, net feed from WCPE overnight classical having failed. This could go on for hours, unless someone of KUCO be awakened to fix it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 92.1 FM, whenever checked, no signal from KAMG-LP, Enid, in the past two weeks or so, after lots of dead air. Gone for good? (Glenn Hauser, March 31, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, March 31 at 0059, carrier from R. Chaski axually with some talk/music mod audible, presumably usual network feed from Red Radio Integridad; until autocutoff at 0104:11*, which is 14 seconds later than two nights ago, March 29 until 0103:57*, = averaging 7 later per. The slippage rate seems to be varying slightly (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1871 monitoring: confirmed Thursday March 30 at 2130 on WRMI 11580, fair-good. Also confirmed Thu Mar 30 at 2330 on WBCQ 9329.138v-CUSB, fair. Next:

** U S A. 7490, Thursday March 30 at 2335, WBCQ 7490 with music, AHW`s fundraiser promo, and then Ramsey suggesting alternatively sending money to WBCQ in the p-mail. So `Furthermore 29-54` replay is again occupying the former `Broad Spectrum Radio` slot. I wonder if BSR is still on any of the other stations? The WBCQ program schedule,
is getting more and more outdated, still showing a full hour of BSR at 23-24 Thursdays, which stopped months ago (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 11580, March 31 at 1307, WRMI with `World Music` segment, a song about a gay man (or is it a Cayman??), next one in Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7504.96v, March 31 at 0101, open carrier at S9+30, so WRNO is back on after missing a few nights per Ron Howard observations. I don`t hang around to hear if they start modulating during the nominal 01-04 UT span for DST season (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
