Glenn Hauser logs June 23-24, 2017

** ALASKA. 7355, June 24 at 1212, KNLS English is here today, S7-S9 with parable(?), while // 11870 is JBA carrier. Much better heard sometimes when on 11885 instead sporadically, not today (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ARGENTINA [non]. 11580, Fri June 23 at 2218 check, RAE via WRMI is definitely in Italian hour today, discussing pasta.

11580, Saturday June 24 at 1400, WRMI opening RAE relay in Spanish, so it`s still here, altho missing yesterday, filled by World Music. Show is `primera edición` for Friday June 23, which would have been at 2200 on 5950; previewing `Actualidad DX` to be included this hour. The program grid at
now shows RAE Spanish Mon-Sat at 1400-1500, unlike the frequency grid above it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ASCENSION. 6135, June 24 at 0428, B-B-C- chimes at S9-S7, about to open 0430-0500 French. No het from Brasil, off? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 4885.02, June 24 at 0429, JBA carrier, same at 0526, presumably R. Clube do Pará. Propagation vs noise level is pitiful, but I still wonder if this is a remnant of their usual signal left on air while resolving legal problems (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [and non]. 6030, June 24 at 1207, YL in Chinese, CNR1, not a jammer per Aoki, but getting jammed by residual pulses from Cuba after Martí finished at 1200. Still plenty to block any hope of hearing CFVP. Same type of talk on other frequencies, presumed also CNR1, some of them jammers, without attempting to match: 6105, 6125, 6175, 6180 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6145, June 24 at 0427, RHC English again AWOL from here, but still on 6000 only, undermodulated (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5025, June 24 at 0527, R. Rebelde is S9+20 but JBM; still/again like that at 1203 check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEWFOUNDLAND. 6160-, June 24 at 0427 check, NO signal from CKZN. Chris Smolinski had tipped me earlier that it has been missing. O no, another Canadian SW gone? We hope only temporarily (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** NORTH AMERICA. 6935.25-USB, June 24 at 0157, pirate music at S9. Dense music is such that it`s hard to zero in on frequency by the sound alone, lacking any residual carrier, but it seems `off` when tuned to 6935.00 exactly. Only during spoken bit can I approximate the frequency, about ``call the FCC``, and this not being respectable radio. ``You have been listening to Medicate [??] Radio`` and off at 0203* altho traces of tones or music were heard in following minute. These logs between 0120 and 0203* ID it properly as: Renegade Radio:,35662.0.html

** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, June 24 at 1203, carrier still on here, weaker than 5025 Cuba, presumed SIBC. On 90m, only carrier is 3260, perhaps PNG. It`s already too late here past sunrise 1115 UT, but which is now inching slightly later per day; won`t reach 1200 until September (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1883 monitoring: confirmed Friday June 23 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330.15v-CUSB, very good! Much better strength than usual here on this frequency (other signals are above average too this evening, e.g. 9420 Greece). 

Not confirmed Saturday June 24 at 1431 on HLR 7265-CUSB: checked every few minutes between 1411 and 1500 via UTwente SDR, NO signal, just noise, so no Media Network Plus heard either before 1430 --- unlike last week when both were audible sufficiently, so off the air this week, or totally different propagation? The rather short skip distance from Germany to Netherlands may be enhanceable by sporadic E which as RSGB Propagation reminds us, unpredictably affects frequencies as low as 7 MHz (and I think, even lower). Next:

Sat 1930v  WA0RCR 1860-AM ND
Sat 2230   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW

[Wolfgang Büschel forwards p-mail from David Crystal, Israel, that he heard WOR last Saturday June 17 at 2300 on WRMI 11580 – contrary to still scheduled `Viva Miami` & `Radio Panorama in Russian`. The latter expanded from 14 to 29 minutes some weeks ago, so would no longer fit into the 2315-2330 slot anyway. Please check this Saturday!]

** U S A. (9955), Friday June 23 at 2300, checking out what`s really on this unjammed WRMI webcast: Outdated `Ask WWCR` from May about NASB still running instead of `Viva Miami`. As I mentioned before, the sked shows an unID `Noticiero` at 2315. What I really hear is the opening of Radio Libertad, claiming it`s still on the air at 7-8 pm daily (no, weekdays only). This `news` gets right down to business, stuff about opositores cubanos. The official R. Libertad broadcast shows separately on the sked allegedly not starting until 2330 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9930, Friday June 23 circa 1830 on caradio, WTWW-2 is back on the air after missing several days at random afternoon chex, `Dave Ramsey Show`. Maybe will be on Saturday at 1800+ for `Theater Organ from the Ozarx`?

9475 & 5830, Saturday June 24 at 0140 check, WTWW-1 is AWOL both from day and night frequencies. 5085, WTWW-2 however is on with music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505v, June 24 at 0156 check, WRNO is gone again from its nominal 01-04 UT schedule (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15825, June 24 at 1331, WWCR at S9+20 with gospel huxter: obviously enhanced by sporadic E from usual very weak signal. But nothing on VHF. Not checked Es MUF map until 1600 when it shows only 35 MHz halfway between here and Nashville. 

If I had been listening to 15825 between 1345 and 1356, unlikely would have been able to hear the co-channel USB E11 Oblique English numbers station from an unknown secret transmitter site that Ivo Ivanov reported in Bulgaria today (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
