Glenn Hauser logs April 13-14, 2017

** COLOMBIA. 5910.05, April 14 at 0457, Alcaraván Radio is S9+20 of dead air, still so at 0546 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6060 // 6100 // 6000, April 14 at 1240, RHC Spanish now on all these 49m channels in the morning, the first two having been regulars only at night until this week. Also // 9640 and 9535, but no 9820 or 9850 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN [non]. 6165, April 14 at 0454, JBA carrier in S8 local noise level. Must be NHK Russian via GERMANY as now scheduled 0430-0500, ex-Lithuania on 5910. Now in the clear with Cuba`s move to 6145. 

More useful for us on 6165 could be Turkey in English at 0300-0345v, 138 degrees from Emirler, // 9515, 325 for North America --- but if 9 MHz is not propagating well, maybe 6 MHz will be, even tho aimed oppositewards.

Now if only CHAD would reactivate on 6165! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 11600, April 14 at 1400, Denge Kurdistane seems to be mixing with some other station, but cuts off at 1402* leaving only a JBA carrier, past 1406+. Ivo Ivanov shows as of April 13, the PRIDNESTROVYE transmitter site runs until 1400, and thence? As of March 26, anyway, BULGARIA was next for two hours. Only others on 11600 per Aoki could be SOH relaying RFA and ChiCom jamming. Maybe the mixture was a D.K. site overlap, but then neither (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 650, April 14 at 1157, good signal from XETNT, Los Mochis, Sinaloa, which really gets out on skywave. Much better now than any other XE in the 500s, 600s or 700s, altho 730 XEHB Chihuahua is weakly audible too. XETNT with music, 1159 full ID for XHTNT 106.5 and XETNT 650, both Radio 65. 6 am timecheck, announces newscast, but not yet, back to songs. Today`s Enid sunrise: 1159 UT on way to earliest of the  year in about two months, 1113 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 930, Friday April 14 at 1228 UT, WKY with no morning DJ show which was still shown on their website April 1, but repeated IDs as ``930 AM WKY Deportes`` The call letters always pronounced in English. String of national and local ads & PSAs, including one in English for an OKC Low-Testosterone business --- sports fans have got to keep it up! 1232 UT plugs WKY carrying Texas Rangers SBGs. 1233 UT rejoins network ESPN Deportes.

The website still uses the old name,
but has wiped musical show info, except for this presumably now outdated about the DJ known as The Roadrunner, (tho check to be sure whether he`s not on M-F at 21-01 UT). I am preserving here for posterity [sic without fixing up accents, horrendous comma splices]:
