Glenn Hauser logs May 13-14, 2017

** CUBA. 13740, May 14 at 0328, R. Rebelde music // 5025 instead of RHC programming, tnx to a tip from Richard Langley in Hawaii who was hearing 13740 only before 0300. I checked other RHC Spanish frequencies, 5040, 6060, 7340, 11670, 11840 and with different music they were // each other, but not 13740. 5025 itself is often absent in the evenings, but on tonight. Suspect 13740 just another SNAFU in feed routings, but we shall see if it happen again (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 9925, UT Sunday May 14, The Mighty KBC via GERMANY is doing much better on its second week back on 31m, VG S9+20/10, Uncle Eric introducing Kraig Krist at 0140, about 10 minutes earlier than usual. Forgotten Song is #28 from April 1977, the Jacksons` ``Show You the Way to Go`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6880.0-AM, May 13 at 2340, pirate music at S8-S6, no doubt Unknown Name Radio Network on its favorite but not only frequency. Yes, per this thread at this hour, starting as early as 2116, including some log from overseas:

** TASMANIA [non]. 11580, May 13 at 2342, WRMI amid `Hobart Radio International` with clip from Netherlands, 2342 ID and addresses, then PSS = Pirate Station Special with clip of Radio Barracuda (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Armed Forces Day monitoring, May 13 at 2310-2333, quickly checking all the frequencies in this schedule:
altho it`s soon obvious nothing is propagating above 15 MHz or below 6 MHz, results:

7360-USB, May 13 at 2310, CQ Armed Forces Day Crossband, from NWKJ [all calls given fonetikaly], then contact with an N9? Very poor. NWKJ is USS Yorktown, CV-10, Charleston SC.

13963.5-USB, May 13 at 2312, CQ AFD from AAC in Lexington KY, QSX 14240 [nobody really says QSX, but I do]. AAC is at Barrow Army Reserve Center. Some frequencies have more than one station listed, so I hit 13963.5-USB again a few minutes later in search of WAR at The Pentagon, but I never hear it on this or any frequency, instead AAC again at 2317 with WH7W in Hawaii. Says 6-8 weeks for QSL reply. At 2333, AAC op gives name as Harv, good signal. 

14438.5-USB, May 13 at 2313, YL says ``unable to give out callsign at this time``, but then Pat at AAZ contacts WQ5L. AAZ is at Fort Huachuca AZ, which is handling QSLing for all the stations, but it may take about 60 days. QSX 14340 USB, out at 2314.

6913-CW, May 13 at 2323, strong CW signal, ``DE NWVC`` which is LST-325 in Evansville IN.

7535.0-LSB, May 13 at 2325, NSS Annapolis MD special reactivation with W8VVE, then KF8IY, Bob in OH; QRZ on 7255. This is listed at 7533.5-USB! Apparently a bit of confusion with 1.5 kHz offset reference frequency and which SB, run by hams used to LSB on 7 MHz. The original NSS at the US Naval Academy had been off the air for about 40 years. See stories in DXLD 17-18 and 17-19.

14487-USB, May 13 at 2327, trace of something, looking for ADB at Camp Foster, Okinawa, but also listed for NSS.

6903.5-USB, May 13 at 2329, poor signal but ID as NEPM, Matt with almost unreadable contact, then KF7OQY? NEPM is USS Iowa BB 61 in Los Angeles CA.

After lawnmowing and a recovery period, another session in case anything else can be heard after 0143 UT, altho many of the stations have officially closed earlier:

5357, May 14 at 0143, digital tones. Two stations listed here for USB, ABH in Schofield Barracks, Hawaii (still too early), and ALT in nearby Camp Mabry (Austin) TX. I don`t try to copy anything digital.

7360, May 14 at 0146 has a broadcast station, BBC via Austria to Afghanistan, altho NIIW in San Diego is listed until 0500 (I heard it last year, like several of the above). See last year`s full report:

6913-USB, May 14 at 0147, NWVC with good signal; 0150 Art calling CQ from LST-325 in Evansville IN, QSX 7212-LSB, contact K4CGA (I don`t try to hear any of the hams); see for QSL address

4040-USB, May 14 at 0148, weak station in Spanish, surely not NSS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1877 monitoring: confirmed Saturday May 13 at 2251 the 2230 broadcast on WBCQ 9330.10v-CUSB, good. Also confirmed the newest addition, UT Sunday May 14 at 0200 on WRMI 11580 (replacing Ukraine which had not been sending new shows on weekends), good signal and still S9+10 at 0225 recheck when I am mentioning this very emission. Richard Langley visiting Hawaii was also hearing it with a fair signal on Saturday afternoon; despite allegedly aiming northeast from Okeechobee. Also confirmed here UT Sunday May 14 at 0327 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO, good, about Ireland`s LW 252, some 13 minutes in, so started circa 0314. Next:

** U S A. 9330.10v-CUSB, Sat May 13 at 2308, WBCQ `Allan Weiner Worldwide` replay during Available Timeslot, as I tune in, lamenting that someone has quit his show even after the price was halved; who was that? Interrupted by a call from Jay Miller (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12105, May 13 at 2123, WTWW-3 is S6 of dead air instead of bibling, but 9930, WTWW-2 is loudly musical (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9894.6, May 13 at 2121, S7 open carrier. Suspect it`s Cairo, French scheduled on 9895 until 2115*, as the *2115v- English scheduled on 9800 has been showing up on 9799.6 and has also been reported coming up very late (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
