Glenn Hauser logs April 29-30, 2017

** CHINA. 13640, April 29 at 2205, fair S7 signal in Japanese, which I figure is NHK, but HFCC says I`m wrong, it`s CRI at 22-24, 500 kW, 59 degrees also USward from Jinhua site (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CYPRUS [non]. 9455, April 29 at 2157, British accented headlines, outro as `FG Radio`, as scheduled for Sat 2145 on JBA WRMI 15770, which is duplicated on 9455 during this hour only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EGYPT. 9799.6, April 29 at 2155, S9+15 signal but JBM music, no doubt R. Cairo during 2115+ English sesquihour for Europe and USward (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** LITHUANIA [non]. 11580, Sat April 29 at 2200, `Bye, Bye, Sitkunai` special hour has just started, for the third week in a row at this time on unscheduled frequency --- and could continue for months (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 6145, April 30 at 0030, The Mighty KBC with Kim`s Radiogram beeps one hour earlier than usual as `The Giant Jukebox` is one hour early, the entire transmission this week only shifted on hour early starting at 2300 April 29, in order to avoid RHC which usurped the frequency from 0100. It`s S9+10/20 at 0050 when Kraig W Krist introduces his `Forgotten Song` this week, from a Winnipeg rock band in 1965. 0054 usual end-of-show shoutouts by Uncle Eric, 0055 announcing next week will move to 9925 (and back to 0000-0200). Final music stops at 0100 sharp, but carrier stays on --- or rather it`s the RHC carrier which may have been on earlier, but not enough to be noticed vs KBC. By 0101 some JBM is audiblizing from RHC English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-USB, April 30 at 0107, pirate music at S9+10/20; 0111 as expected, `Wolverine Radio` ID interjected. By 0148 recheck it`s off (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** PERU. 5980, April 30 at 0050, still not even a JBA carrier detectable from R. Chaski. Maybe it`s habitually closing earlier than 0100v now? Claudio Galaz, Chile, was hearing it before 2400 on April 24 and 25 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9830, April 29 at 2154, VOT IS is running vs RTTY on exactly same frequency, and line noise level, so the following English broadcast will be useless here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1875 monitoring: confirmed April 25 at 2254, the Saturday 2230 airing on WBCQ 9330.50v-CUSB, fair-good. Also confirmed starting after newscast at 2334 Saturday April 25 on IRN webcast, and presumably on Challenger Radio, 846 kHz, Italy, as provided by IRRS which Alfredo Cotroneo tells us is playing WOR at random times, but this seems to be a reliable one. Unfortunately, the 29-minute program can`t fit into 26 minutes, but is faded out after about 27 minutes as a YL briefly interrupts, again around 28, and then into music rather than another newscast on the hour. Also confirmed UT Sunday April 30 at 0329 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM as I am talking about the 250 kW (??) new transmitter in Liberia, which is about 17 minutes in, so started circa 0312. Next:

Sun 2330   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW

Wed 2330   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW

** U S A. 9330.6v-CUSB, April 29 at 2158, BS via WBCQ has varied up more to the plus side than lately, fair-good (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9930 plus spurs 9917.1 & 9942.9, Sat April 29 at 2153, WTWW-2 is still running with radio-talk by Ted, maybe 3 hours after it should have started; S9+40 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
