Glenn Hauser logs April 1-2, 2017

** BRAZIL. 6180 & 11780, April 2 at 0058, both RNAs are still missing for the thirteenth night in a row (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 6070, April 2 at 0113, CFRX with M&W talkshow, blasted away by splatter from overmodulated 6060 CUBA; all I can make out is a mention of ``auditions for Avengers``, and an app plug. I was going to try to confirm whether CFRB is still carrying a computer/tech show, `Geeks & Beats`, Friday and Saturday nights: was 0104 UT Saturdays and 0004 UT Sundays (repeat?), so I have left it on the latest DX/SWL/MEDIA programs for the time being. Website no longer shows a complete program schedule, just certain ``Shows``, and no mention of G&B now on a weekend at either:
So can anyone confirm whether CFRX still has this on at any time? BTW, I have removed `Into Tomorrow` like WWCR has from its program schedule (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** COLOMBIA. 5910v & 6010v, April 2 at 0044, both HJDHs are missing, not even JBA carriers on clear frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ITALY [non]. 7730, UT Sunday April 2 at 0045, VG WRMI with long list of MW & SW logs; all seem correct altho pertaining to B-16, but lacking in detail. 0054 outro as Italian SW Panorama from Marconi Radio International, carried by IBC Radio, via WRMI; 0055 on to MFSK32 beeping as usual for final pentaminute; IBC has now been converted to English, and appears to qualify as a DX program (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6940.0-USB, April 2 at 0035, soul music at S9+25, still 0055, finally 0104 Wolverine Radio ID inserted, still 0115. Mostly on the PL-880 portable with reelout, sufficient while the bigrig is bandscanning. Always the strongest 42m pirate here, this time compared to 6950 RFW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950.0-USB, April 2 at 0034, pirate music at S9+5; 0044 ID for Radio Free Whatever; 0108 acknowledging reception reports probably from HFUnderground; 0109 looking for an ad to play before next music, but can`t find it. Several other logs here:
I mostly heard him on the PL-880 portable with Lithium Ion battery power, so qualifies for the ABDX Coordinated Monitoring Event. Meanwhile another pirate on 6940, and competing music shows on 3215, 5085 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also UNID 6930

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1871 monitoring: confirmed Saturday April 1 at 2230 on WBCQ, 9329v-CUSB, fair. Also confirmed UT Sunday April 2 at 0327 about 13 minutes in so started circa 0314 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, at S9+30! Next:

** U S A. 5950, UT Sun April 2 at 0041, WRMI amid `Wavescan`, usual poor signal on this frequency, as Jeff is quoting last week`s WORLD OF RADIO about R. Tirana quitting SW, and then a 1990 clip of it via Jonathan Marks (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** U S A. 3215, April 2 at 0059, WWRB with paranoid gospel huxters at S9+45, revealing that the Qur`an is anti-Christian, and criticizing someone for saying that the Sabbath is on Sunday. They keep going past 0100 when WWCR cuts on with steel drum, sign-on and into `Martha Garvin`s Musical Memories`. The two Tennessee stations keep on clashing at about equal levels until Dave finally says retune to 3195, at 0101 and off 3215. That`s an improvement over the 45-minute collision this winter. Fortunately this can only happen on UT Sun, Mon & Tue due to WWRB`s 3-night-a-week schedule.

3195 comes on at *0102.5 with carrier, shortly ID, `Wonderful Words of Life` hymntune, but soon more huxtering. Hey Dave, why don`t you just broadcast on 3195 only and dispense with these quick-changes, not always successful, to share 3215 with WWCR?? 90m will be replaced by 60m, 5050, sometime in A-17 but not yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. 5085, and parasitic spurs circa 5072 & 5097, UT Sunday April 2 at 0103, WTWW has just started `Theater Organ from the Ozarx`, with Bob Heil playing via huge S9+50 signal. (Meanwhile, 6145, The Mighty KBC via Germany reads only S9, but too poor for its music. All Eurosigs are degraded tonight, even Romania (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505, April 2 at 0107, WRNO is on with soul music at S9+40 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6930-USB, April 2 at 0035, JBA music at S7 = noise level; don`t think there is a carrier. I`m looking for R. Piraña Internacional, from South America, which notified me that they are running all-night from 20 to 14 UT until April 3 or 4, with 10 watts, or PEP of 40 watts. I find two other unID logs at same time from NY and MA, and they say all the music by Cream. Was that it, or something North American? One says it went off at 0053:

Here`s the note from RPI, which I posted ASAP to the DXLD yg:

``We are now into the last days of transmissions from our South American site. We have received several reports from very faraway. That is impressive taking in mind our very low power! Only 10 watts carrier (aprox. 40 PEP). We have besides from South America, received reports from the USA, Germany, Finland and New Zealand! We continue to Monday 4th [sic] of April when closing down will be around 14 hours UT. Sched: 6930 kHz 2000-1400 UT
