Glenn Hauser logs June 3-4, 2017

** ARGENTINA [non]. 11580, June 3 at 1407, RAE AAM new Spanish hour via WRMI confirmed also on Saturday for 6-days-per week, but are there only 5 programs per week, so a repeat of yesterday? May contain the DX program (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 3330-CUSB, June 4 at 0018, CHU timesignals are JBA, so at first I fear they are gone again. Just too early before sunset now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 15130, June 3 at 1452 heavy beat rock music with flutter, S6-S4 until cutoff at 1456:10* without any announcements; how rude! HFCC shows it`s RRI in Romanian via Galbeni to France at ``1300-1500`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SLOVAKIA [non]. 5950, June 4 at 0030, surprised to hear this weak S6 WRMI-14 frequency opening Radio Eslovaquia Internacional (while English continues at same time from RSI on much better 5850 & 11580). WRMI transmission sked grid does now show REI in Spanish at 0030-0100 on 5950, while the program sked grid below it still shows a bunch of DX programs including four repeats of Wavescan which have really been replaced by this. DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS has been duly updated:

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 9370, June 4 at 0024, WWRBS is still on day frequency instead of 3185, and again about 10 seconds behind 9330 WBCQ; with a live-sounding worship(?) service which are usually during the previous hour at 7 pm ET. Maybe expanded for UT Pentecost. BS is making some rudely critical remarx to his congregation of psychophants (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1880 monitoring: confirmed Saturday June 3 at 2230 on WBCQ, 9330.08-CUSB, good. Also confirmed on new webcast from Laser Soul Hits, after 2300 UT Saturday June 3 via

** U S A. 9395, UT Sunday June 4 at 2228 tune-in, WRMI Oldies channel with VOA News outro. It seems WRMI is throwing these 5-minute newscasts on at random times, also reported varying during the 02-03 UT hour. Presumably the latest hourly edition from the VOA stream, and maybe at many other spots during the 24h. Not a bad idea, since VOA makes itself so hard to hear on SW otherwise; and next FY budget could do away with its own SW altogether. But we`d rather have them at reliable times such as hourtops or hourbottoms (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1630 kHz, June 3 at 0610 UT, open carrier/dead air from KKGM TX, atop KCJJ Iowa City, ``The Mighty 1630`` ID by the latter at 0614 UT. Checking since Mark Sills, Dallas, informed me June 2 at 1603 UT that his 1630 station had been putting out a `loud roar for a couple of days with feedback``. He tried calling them, but no answer or disconnected. At 1609 UT he followed up, that he had reached someone at a sibling station who said it was the phone company`s fault, as they were unable to contact the transmitter to turn it off. I say, you`d think that after a few days, they should have managed to physically enter the transmitter site if that was the only way to control it! (Glenn Hauser, oK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. In Wisconsin, WHA Celebrates 100 Years Of Broadcasting
June 3, 2017 7:32 AM ET Heard on Weekend Edition Saturday
Maureen McCollum From Wisconsin Public Radio

WHA and Wisconsin Public Radio helped set the template for what became NPR. This year marks the station's centennial.

SCOTT SIMON, HOST: One of the oldest radio stations in this country celebrates its 100th birthday this year, Wisconsin Public Radio on WHAA. WHA AM helped develop the framework for the public radio system we're familiar with today. So we asked WPR's Maureen McCollum to tell us about her station's legacy. . .

As heard on NPR Weekend Edition Saturday June 3 via KOSU:
Rush transcript and link to 5:12 of audio:
(via gh, DXLD) Never mentions original callsign 9XM! (gh)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15140, June 4 at 0033, S4 carrier with trace of music, about the only signal on 19m besides Cubans. Suspect it`s Radio Sultanate of Oman, registered 1400-2200 only, but well-known to forget to change to a subsequent night frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
