Glenn Hauser logs April 4-5, 2017 + correxions

** CUBA [and non]. Correxion to this report: frequency logged was 7365, as implied in the body, not typo 7465; fixed:

7365, March 29 at 0546, R. Martí is loud & clear, no jamming, while 7435 is jammed against nothing. The DentroCuban Jamming Command still hasn`t figured out the new RM schedule, which is in HFCC for all to see, i.e. 7435 only at 03-05, preceded and succeeded by 7365 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7254.924, April 5 at 0547, VON is already on with pop music prélude, about 10 minutes before it will start its percussive identification signal prior to Hausa hour. Usual very good level (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 11590, April 5 at 1946, Overcomer Ministry on new frequency, but not Brother HyStairical himself at the moment, S4 but good modulation, and seems // but not synchro with 11580 WRMI next door and its // 11825, which are both much weaker! Ivo Ivanov says this moved off 11600 via BULGARIA due to a conflict with Denge Kurdistane which is only on 11600 now. The BS time started March 30 as 1600-2000, changed April 4 to 1800-2030 due to another conflict on 11590 with Radio Ashna via Thailand at 1600-1730! Not the first time there has been a pileup on 11600 involving ``Secretbrod``. 11590 is reported as 50 kW at 126 degrees, but sounds like it could be aimed reversely toward North America, as has been scheduled elsewhen from Bulgaria (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1872, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9830, April 4 at *2158, VOT on with IS prior to 2200 English to NAm, vs RTTY, which seems to stop at 2200, but not sure if in deference. VOT starts with a timesignal, but s/on announcement with frequency unreadable. Yesterday this transmission was on 9735, as Sheryl Paskiewicz, WI reported, but I suspected it was a mistake. She was also monitoring at the same time today and agrees I was right, it`s back on 9830. Too bad, as 9735 appears to be QRM-free (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1872, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1871 monitoring: confirmed Tuesday April 4 at 2130 on WRMI 15770, good with nearby storm noise. Missed checking April 4 at 2330 on WBCQ 9329v. Also confirmed Wednesday April 5 at 1340, the 1315.5 airing on WRMI 9955, good but occasional noise bursts which could be QRM (not jamming), or out of own transmitter? Also confirmed Wed April 5 at 2100 on WBCQ, 7490, poor; also confirmed Wed April 5 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9329.95v-CUSB, fair.

The WRMI schedule grid updated April 4 now shows 6855 at 11-13 UT is on System C = // 9955 again including WOR and other DX programs, rather than // System H Oldies on 9395. Assuming that is correct,

** U S A. Correxion to this report: 9328.934V-CUSB, not 9338.934v-CUSB; I am making too many mistaxe! But I must fix them ASAP:

9328.934V-CUSB, March 30 at 1420, Brother Scare via WBCQ is more than 1 kHz low now, and audibly varying as I try to measure it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, April 4 at before and after 1959 BZ ID, WRMI has been playing World Music instead of TOM as scheduled. Segments of WM have appeared unexpectedly before. However next day, April 5 at 2030 check, 9955 is back to TOM // 11825, but not BS himself at the moment, and with some pulse jamming. See also SOUTH CAROLINA [non]

11580, April 4 at 2000, WRMI is VP with jazz, i.e. `Jazz from the Left` as scheduled this hour on Tuesdays; and should also be on // 6855, too weak here to tell (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9930, Tuesday April 4 at 1952, WTWW-2 with distorted country music. What`s become of Dave Ramsey, gone again?

9475, April 4 at 1953, then I check WTWW-1 and find SFAW with modulation and carrier breaking up (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VATICAN [non]. 9610, April 5 at 1156, Vatican Radio closing Spanish via Greenville USA, violating Separation of Church and State, 1158 playing IS as customary at the end of transmissions. Checking this because Mark Coady, Ontario had reported hearing RHC on 9610 // other RHC frequencies, April 3 at 1140. Maybe then, but if so, would be in a big collision. I do hear RHC on 9640 as usual (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ZANZIBAR. 11735, April 4 at 2052, ZBC is VP, but with BFO I hear two carriers slightly apart beating against each other. This correlates with Wolfgang Büschel`s observation on March 23: ``Two program strings on TZA even 11735.0 kHz, and another string visible nearby on 11734.966 kHz. Heard a male announcer, but also a steady music played`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
