Glenn Hauser logs April 6-7, 2017

** BRAZIL. 6180, April 6 at 0659, JBA carrier presumably from São Tomé, and no signal on 11780 with RNA still silent. Here`s why, tnx to Ron Howard, April 5:

``FYI, Posted to WRTH Facebook page today by Uender José Silva Marques: La Radio Nacional de la Amazônia de Brasília en Brasil que transmite em onda corta 6180 khz y 11780 khz, ya están seleccionados que proporcionan energía pero les falta el dinero proveniente del gobierno para iniciar el proceso, las dos frecuencias están por debajo de Lunes retrasado. Será capaz de volver en unos días así que depende de federal gobierno proporcionar el dinero para contratar los servicios de generación de energía. La información que viene da parte técnica da emisora brasileña del senor Noe Santana Cesar, Un saludo desde Brasil y buenas escuchas 73!``

[gh`s translation:] RNA, Brasília, on SW 6180 and 11780 kHz, have already been selected to be supplied power, but money from the government is lacking to start the process. The two frequencies have been delayed since Monday [sic]. It will be capable of resuming in a few days depending on the federal government providing the funding to contract for electricity generation. This information comes from Mr Noe Santana Cesar at the technical section of the station. Greetings from Brasil and good listening, 73! 

Both are still off April 7 at 0053 check of 6180, JBA carrier from East Turkistan and would you believe that XEPPM is even splattering upon it a bit from 6185; and at 0059 nothing on 11780 (Glenn Hauser, WORLD OF RADIO 1872, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11840, April 7 at 0100, I happen to catch RHC Spanish when it is making a frequency announcement, with a flub so may have been live: 15230, 13740, 11670, 11840, 9535, 9710, 6060; and from 03 to 06 UT: 5040; until 0400*: 11760 (yes, 11760 is already on now too; but no mention of 11830 & 11850 always accompanying 11840); and the three 24-hour FM frequencies, 91.7 Isla de Juventud, 102.5 La Habana, 103.1 Pinar del Rio, Mayabeque & Artemisa. Expect some changes as of April 9 when Arnie says his delayed A-17 schedule goes into effect (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** PERU. 5980, April 7 at 0050, VP carrier from R. Chaski, but better than usual with some talk, music modulation, until autocutoff at 0104:58*, which is 47 seconds later than last catch one week ago, March 31 until 0104:11*, so averaging 6.7 seconds later per, slippage right on schedule (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SRI LANKA. 11905, April 7 at 0114.25, SLBC carrier on now, JBA; prélude music JB audible by 0114:54; and last pip of mis-timesignal at 0115:05, like last time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TIBET [non]. 11540, April 6 at 1253, talk in tonal language, fair S7, some deep fades, cut off at 1258*. HFCC shows it`s IBB in the ``bod`` dialect of Tibetan via TINIAN at 1200-1300, supposed to continue another hour until 1400 via Kuwait, but unheard before I tuned on. Was one of the better signals on band, and no sign of jamming, yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9830, April 6 at 2200, VP carrier presumably VOT still on correct frequency to North America. Mark Coady, Ontario, heard the April 4 broadcast better than I and says they introduced with the date as November 13! Apparently back to the future on April 5 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7416.0-USB, UT Friday April 7 at 0111, net of ``Big Bend`` stations. Must be Texas Civil Air Patrol. Net control is Big Bend 20, calling for different check-ins, and getting few replies during minute-long pauses. First it`s Group 1? Only check-in heard is Big Bend 11, who has negative traffic; 0113, Group 2? Then Group 3? Retune at 0116, now asking for out-of-state check-ins to the ``Big Bend HF Net``: none; 0117 asking for ``any stations`` at all? Nothing further heard. BB20 makes a beep at end of each transmission; also hear some QRM? from regular noise bursts (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1872 monitoring: NOT confirmed Thursday April 6 at 1155, the 1130 first airing on WRMI 9955, since that has been replaced by `Informativo G24`: see separate log. I hope to get some other time(s) on WRMI to replace it. Still confirmed the next broadcast, Thursday April 6 at 2130 on WRMI 11580, poor; and Thu Apr 6 at 2330 on WBCQ 9328.95v-CUSB, fair.

** U S A. 7730 // 5850, Thursday April 6 at 0705, WRMI is again airing a PCJ Radio International hour, and it is `The Happy Station` as Keith Perron mentions, for April 2, still celebrating April Fool`s Day by being silly --- but practical joxe should be played on other days when they are less expected.

6855 // 9955, Thursday April 6 at 1155 I am expecting to hear the first SW broadcast of WORLD OF RADIO 1872 back on two frequencies --- except this airing has been replaced without notice by something in Spanish, a news magazine called `Informativo G-24`, with reports concerning the Mocoa mudslide, and then the St. Pete subway bombing, but coming from ``Radio Internacional de España``, not Radio Exterior. Seems to be a WRMI produxion as a canned ID for it by Dino is interspersed. Closing says it`s Wednesdays at 9 pm Miami time [only = 0100 UT Thursdays] on ``99.55 kHz``. ID at 1200 and over to Radio Prague in English. 6855 was clear but 9955 with some lite pulse jamming.

Later I recheck the WRMI sked grid and find it also shows at 1130 UT Thursdays. And there`s a new entry about it at the top of the Programming page:

``INFORMATIVO G24 se emite en Radio Miami International los Miércoles a las 21 Horas Local, también se emite en Colombia y Europa. Analiza las situaciones que ocurren en el mundo y en las Américas, con un lenguaje descriptivo al oyente y las voces de los protagonistas de las noticias para que usted entienda el contexto geopolítico de la información. Conduce y dirige  la periodista Colombiana Sandra Valencia Especialista en estudios Políticos y Máster en relaciones Internacionales. No competimos con la inmediatez nuestra apuesta es el análisis porque queremos que usted sea su propio analista. Siga el INFORMATIVO G24 en redes sociales Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube http://www.CanalG24.TV ``

More at its own website, from which the above is edited, showing altho this is weekly on WRMI, in Colombia it`s M-F at noon local = 17 UT on Colmundo, 1440 (which is HJNZ, 5 kW in Medellín). One logo shows it means Global 24 Press --- any relation to the defunct program in English via WRMI, Global 24??? Seems unlikely, yet quite a coincidence in nomenclature.

6855, April 7 at 0126, now this WRMI is // 7570 with Overcomer Ministry. Latest sked shakeup for 6855 shows TOM at 01-03; also added Eslovaquia in Spanish at 0430-0500 // 9955. 

BTW, I am hearing a lot of non-Brother Scare voices lately as I quickly tune across Overcomer frequencies; why? If he`s on vacation, ailing, or dead, there are endless old recordings of the Last Day Prophet of God to rerun into eternity; has there been a coup? Otherwise he would be gearing up for Eas-, I mean Passover (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** U S A. 7504.98v, April 7 at 0110, WRNO is already in Chinese within the first hour shortly after sign-on. Usually it`s been during the second or third hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1480, April 7 at 0122 UT, South Asian song is somewhat atop the QRM, so apparently KBXD Dallas is still on with R. Namaste. I was wondering, since haven`t heard it in some time. Best to check around sunrise (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7852, April 7 at 0108, steady pulse jamming too close to CHU, not noticed here before. Rate is 4 times per second. Sounds just like Cuban jamming against broadcasters, but is it, perhaps a stray? Need to clock the rate of that when there is only one at a time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
