Glenn Hauser logs June 27-28-29, 2017

** ALASKA. 7355, June 29 at 1233, fair signal with gospel music, from KNLS English hour, probably // very poor 11870, and no signal on 11885 today, the alt. for 7355. A few minutes later, that has weakened considerably (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ARGENTINA [non]. 7730, June 27 at 0600, RAE Japanese via WRMI starts right off with music, and contains a lot of great Argentine tunes, on a VG signal here not likely to reach Japan very well. Also notice lots of Argmusic during the French hour 13-14 on 11580, and the Spanish hour at 14-15 on 11580. These could be added to Alan Roe`s Music Programmes on Shortwave, which does include some of the other language RAE relay hours (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** COLOMBIA. 5910.362, June 29 at 0613, JBA carrier, surely Alcaraván Radio varying even higher than usual, far too weak to enjoy the nice Colombian music it must be playing. Transmitter at reduced power? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6145, June 27 at 0612, RHC English is AWOL from this frequency, while continuing on VG 6100, fair 6060 and 6000. Ditto at 0611 June 29. Nominally starts at *0100, but haven`t yet checked whether 6145 is completely off earlier than 0600 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 13575, June 29 at 1228-1230+ poor signal in Russian but better than most on the band. Aoki shows it`s CRI, 500 kW, 308 degrees from Urumqi during this hour only. At first it seemed to have some CCI, but maybe just audio mix in the produxion (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEWFOUNDLAND. 6160-, June 28 at 0612 check, still no signal from CKZN. At least three of us have been trying to reach anyone at CBC to find out what`s happened, the status of this transmitter, but no replies so far (Glenn Hauser, June 28-29, WORLD OF RADIO 1884, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1883 monitoring: confirmed Tuesday June 27 at 2130 on WRMI 9455 fair and somewhat better than less fair 15770. NOT confirmed Tue June 27 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9330v-CUSB, which is OFF the air (and so is 7490, nor back at 2351 recheck; meanwhile 9265 WINB is audible at S9-S5). Confirmed Wednesday June 28 after 1315 on WRMI 9955, fair S9 but with pulse jamming; tnx a lot, Arnie! Out and missed checking Wed June 27 at 2100 on WBCQ 7490, but has been very reliable. Confirmed Wed June 27 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9330.25v-CUSB, fair.

** U S A. 9395, June 29 at 1252, guess what`s on the WRMI `Oldies`(?) channel now? `The Power Hour`! Now that Joyce Riley is deceased, her ex-program is expanding. Tuned-in during adstring starting with MyPillows, and soon found // but not synch with TPH on 7490 WWCR. 9395 is hardly needed here since 7490 inbooms much stronger. Not // 9455 at this time. At 1301 recheck, 9395 has become // 9455 with VOA News, while 7490 continues with TPH (not GCN or any other newscast). Another adstring at 1305-1308 unseems // 7490, but all back to TPH at 1308, when I time 9395 running 20 seconds behind 7490. At 1403 recheck, another VOA News on the hour from 9395 stronger than // 9455, 1405 adstring, 1408:30 really, TPH resumes on both WRMIs as well as 7490 (and presumed other WWCR 13845 not checked but usually weak). 

The WRMI sked grid is now labeled as updated June 14, 2017, at
still shows nothing but Oldies during these hours on 9395 & 9455. A true complete and detailed sked for these two frequencies is sorely needed. You never know what they will be doing next.

I now can`t find anything about SW outlets (or any radio outlets except the FM pirates around Austin) via 
GCN is also to blame for propagating Alex Jones (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** U S A. 9930 & 12105, June 27 at 2115, both these WTWWs are off, while only 9475 continues. Ditto, June 28 at 1839, when 9930 nominally is amid the `Dave Ramsey Show`. It`s been weeks since any Bibling on 12105 has been heard; eliminated, or #3 transmitter just out of service? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
