Glenn Hauser logs June 14-15, 2017

** ALASKA. Correcting typo in original report, not Jan but June!

11885, June 13 at 1322, no signal from KNLS Chinese, unlike several days recently, nor on 11870, but very poor signal on 9655. So either second transmitter is off, or moved, or maybe not propagating at all. Need to check before 1300 in English when it`s been 11870 // 11885 contrary to all published sked info (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ALASKA. 7355, June 14 at 1200, KNLS IS opening English ``from the top of the world``, poor but better than very poor // 11870. So back on correct frequency 7355 instead of 11885 where it was for several days. By 1250 recheck, 7355 degraded to JBA, and 11870 still VP (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1882, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ARGENTINA [non]. 9395, June 15 at 0142, RAE still a no-show on WRMI, instead // 11580 during another `Wavescan` repeat (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** AUSTRIA. 11880, June 15 at 0635, lite music and Arabish talk at S7-S5. HFCC shows AWR via Moosbrunn, 300 Kw, 175 degrees at 0600-0700 --- but also Riyadh BSKSA at 0600-0900, 250 kW at 310 degrees. Aoki breaks the tie showing AWR only, no Saudi on 11880 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [non]. 9570, Thu June 15 at 1320, CRI English via CUBA with emotional drama/soapera, involving a Dr. Wu, a nurse, and a hospital; complete with foley SFX and music. I don`t quite get the point of it in a few minutes, but seems unusual programming for CRI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CYPRUS [non]. 9955, Wed June 14 at 1307, FG Radio via WRMI playing Badfinger, ``If you want it, here it is, come and get it; you`d better hurry, `cause it`s goin` fast``. Then some Famagusta Gazette items including Easy Jet website redesign a disaster; by 1311 a bit of pulse jamming is audible before WOR starts at 1315.5 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1881 monitoring: confirmed Wed June 14 the 1030 on WRMI 5850 // 9455. Also confirmed Wednesday June 14 at 1315.5 on WRMI 9955, G-VG at S9+10. Also confirmed Wed June 14 at 2100 on WBCQ webcast, but JBA on 7490.

Full schedule for WORLD OF RADIO including AM/FM, webcasts, satellite:

** U S A. 9395 // 9455, June 14 at 0616, VOA News relay again caught in progress on WRMI Oldies channel. Both frequencies about equally good here, one aimed S of, the other aimed N of us. However, in daytime both are usually too weak (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490, UT Thu June 15 at 0143, WBCQ with `Allan Weiner Worldwide` playback as he is remarking that ``Terry is a good Christian; he shouts a bit``, i.e. Blalock on ``The Full Gospel Hour` at 00-01 on 9330. Current 7490 sked has AWWW at 0000-0200 UT Thursdays, unlike other weeknights, when Brother Scare reappears. This block was originally cleared for Hal Turner, who came and went again.

All the extra hours of BS have now been removed from the WBCQ program schedules. 9330 is shown as *nothing* but me and `Full Gospel Hour`, same every day: 2330-2400 WOR, 0000-0100 FGH. There had been a few other shows such as repeats of `Allan Weiner Worldwide`, and WOR was shifted an hour earlier on Saturdays only to 2230-2300, so I`m not sure yet if this has really changed. 

`Amateur Radio Roundtable` *really* needs to get back on 9330 for the summer, now buried in the noise level on 5130v, UT Wednesdays at 0100-0230 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1589.89, June 14 at 0633 UT, still het from off-frequency station, previously traced to KMOZ, Rolla MO (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VATICAN. 11625, June 15 at 0630, Vatican Radio opening English to Africa, S8 to S5, with program summary, into ``news`` of Pope`s doings. This one is 210 degrees direct from SMG at 0630-0700, so almost off to the side here; follows 0600-0630 French, but on same frequency 0530-0600 Portuguese is due west via Madagascar (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 8992-USB, June 15 at 0646, cypher message, long string of alfanumeric fonetix, each one accompanied by a squeal, something wrong with mike vox? And the usual mysterious reverb imposed on these by the US military. Soon finishes, ID once sounds like ``Raymond, out`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
