Glenn Hauser logs June 11-12, 2017

** ALASKA. 11885, June 12 at 1418 check, VP signal in Chinese, so it`s still KNLS on unscheduled frequency. On June 10, Mick Delmage in Alberta was also hearing KNLS on 11885 in Chinese from 1648 past 1700, and on June 11, Dave Valko had it before and after 1500; so it looks like my previous assumption is correct: this transmitter stays on 11885 for the entire 08-18 UT broadcast day, most of which is in Chinese. 

What does FCC say? Belatedly availablized A-17 schedule dated April 11
does not show 11885 at all, and still no updated version 2, like

** ARGENTINA [non]. 11580, Monday June 12 at 1350, RAE AVLM via WRMI talking about Radio Rainbow and other DX items, clip in Spanish of a 250 kW station on 810 kHz, ex-Sutatenza? So the ``Friday`` DX program is still being repeated on Monday before a new Monday semihour is available (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 7850-CUSB & 3330-CUSB, June 12 at 0424 check, CHU has resumed modulating with bilingual time signals, probably some time ago, but before that was open carrier, depriving countless Canux from finding out what time it really was (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6230, June 12 at 0438, RHC in Spanish, VP S3-S5 in storm noise level, but // 6060, of which this is a leapfrog mixing product over newish 6145, another 85 kHz higher. Used to be on 6270 when the fulcrum was 6165, and I have been alert for this ever since the QSY to 6145.

6000, June 12 at 0442, RHC music in English service is suptorted here, clearer on // 6145 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5025, June 12 at 0446, R. Rebelde is on, unlike earlier in evening, but music is barely modulated (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7585, June 12 at 0427, Station YHWH is R4, averaging S8, dissing ``that hybrid man-god, the notorious Jesus Christ``. Walt Salmaniw, BC, found him on the air earlier than usual already at 0220 this date, weak a bihour before his sunset (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 92.1, June 12 at 0313 UT, checking for Es, and hear a ``Foxy 92`` ID thru local KAMG-LP with the PL-880 whip in just the right position. Per WTFDA FM DB, turns out to be only this from southern OK between Chickasha and Duncan: KFXI, Marlow OK, 100 kW H&V, 166m HAAT (Glenn Hauser, oK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PHILIPPINES. 11870, June 12 at 1345, now that KNLS quit 11870 at 1259, what`s this? S5 talk halting in unknown language. Sounds a little like French intonation, or maybe some language spoken with a French accent. HFCC shows it`s Radio Veritas Asia westward at 1330-1357 in `ctd` --- so what does that translate to?? EiBi`s nomenclature makes it ``C-T``. Finally let`s see what Aoki says in plain English: ``Chin``, and all agree it goes with obvious S Asian languages Hindi and Telugu during the following hour. On to EiBi`s readme.txt for details: ``C-T Chin-Tidim: Myanmar-Chin (0.2m), India-Mizoram, Manipur (0.15m) [ctd]`` --- how fortunate are the 350 kilopeople of this trans-border minority that some Filipino expansionists care enough to remake them into Roman Catholix! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 6180, June 12 at 0441, JBA talk in uncertain language. HFCC shows it`s RRI in Romanian at 04-05, 285 degrees from Galbeni; and certainly not Brasil reactivated (Glenn Hauser, oK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1881 monitoring: confirmed Sunday June 11 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330.15v-CUSB, good. Also confirmed UT Monday June 12 at 0300.0 on Area 51 webcast, and at 0310 via WBCQ 5129.82, unusually with a het, something on 5130.0? Maybe overload. Also confirmed after 0330 UT Monday June 12 on WRMI 9955 webcast; 9955 was good during previous half-hour Prague music show. Next:
Mon 2330   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030   WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2130   WRMI 9455 to WNW, 15770 to NE

Wed 2330   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Full schedule for WORLD OF RADIO including AM/FM, webcasts, satellite:

** U S A. I`ve noticed that during various hours when no other programming is scheduled on WRMI`s System D, and when no SW frequencies may be carrying it, that webcast is still running with World Music, now the best way to hear it:

** U S A. 9395, June 12 at 0612, WRMI Oldies channel with something else by Bob Biermann, his `Your Weekend Show` of soft-core preaching, still a non-starter, and for the first time against this frequency I hear some RTTY QRM on the hi side, about 9396. Will WRMI then be banned from this frequency too? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490.0, UT Monday June 12 at 0426, WBCQ is on but not BS; they have wasted no time in getting a replacement, but it`s more wacky off-the-wall conspiracy stuff: discussion between a Richard and a Steve referring to a ``disclosure event`` as if we knew what that is, in light of current political situation in US and world. Eventually becomes clear these guys think there are extraterrestrials among us already. One of them thinks it matters for historical prestige, which nation gets to make the big announcement. Will Trump do it? Recheck 7490.02 at 0618, still going with more of same at S9 but with deep fades, giving phone 505-796-8302, on `The Other Side of Midnight`. Invitations to join Club 19.5, reference website

O yeah, it`s the face-on-Mars guy, Richard C. Hoagland, and I vaguely  recall his show was on SW a few years ago, also WBCQ? He thinx the number 19.5 is extremely significant, keeps showing up here and there, e.g. NASA budget of 19.5 billion. Will have to do, lacking Art Bell.

Website gives live schedule of ``9 pm-midnight PST Sat & Sun``, presumably meaning PDT now = 04-07 UT Sun & Mon. And also repeats ``Tuesdays through Saturday Midnight to 2 A.M. PST`` = 0700-0900 UT if again they really mean PDT. So is on *both* sides of Pacific midnite.

Is WBCQ carrying the full trihour both UT Sun & Mon? Of course, nothing about this yet on WBCQ website, not in program index:
and program schedules still show defunct Overcomer Ministry.

How many stations is this broadcast on? Only one is mentioned as a webcast source, KIYQ. WTFDA FM DB shows it`s KIYQ-LP, 100 watts on 107.1 in Las Vegas NV (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, along with spurs 5072.1 & 5097.9, WTWW-2 is on, Monday June 12 at 0444 with gospel huxter about to quote John XVII, when he is rudely interrupted by Ted ID and into gospel music with crackle (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1490, June 12 at 0455 UT tune-in, one station is atop the graveyard, with YL ID ``KDMO, Carthage-Baxter Springs-Joplin``, and NOStalgic music, so this 1/1 kW U1 station. Baxter Springs is across in Kansas on the opposite side of Joplin from Carthage. KDMO is my closest 1490 in this direxion. I suppose KBIX Muskogee OK is still silent, if that helps (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1589.9, June 12 at 0448 UT, another check into the off-frequency unID here: at tune-in, ad/promo for the ``June 28 tenth anniversary of local Christian TV station, KNLG-TV [?]``, phone in 573 area code; then back to program with clips of vintage Vietnam war coverage. 573 puts it in Missouri, and NRC AM Log shows KDEX, Dexter MO in SE corner, has an AC 573 phone number. But it`s a C&W 620 watt daytimer, and this is the nightmiddle! It turns out that AC 573 also encompasses Rolla and Jefferson City, so never mind KDEX.

Searching Missouri TV listings in, the best fuzzy match on call is KNLJ, a megawatt RF Channel 20 in Jefferson City, which is with Christian Television Network as virtual 25.1. Own website confirms it`s at tenth anniversary: (But there is also a KNLC on RF 14, 900 kW in Saint Louis, also religious as virtual 24.1) 

Recheck at 0457 UT June 12, 1589.90 with promo for `Pathway to Victory` show, on Bott Radio, BRN, 0500 UT Unshackled theme. 1590 in Rolla MO, not too far from Jeff City, has KMOZ, 1000/85 watts U1, with Bott network, Christian, or BRN. So this is definitely KMOZ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
