Glenn Hauser logs July 10-11, 2017

** ANGUILLA. 11775, July 10 at 2135, Caribbean Beacon is AWOL, a few days after finally fixing the modulation. Not audible on 6090 either which normally starts at 2200. 11775 still off at 1550 check July 11 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 9900 & 9940, July 11 at 1325, equally poor signals in Korean, YL speaking, 1326 spelling something out, presumably contact info. 9940 is running about one second behind 9900. 

HFCC claims at 1300-1330 that 9900 is via BaBcoCk, Taipei, China, 300 kW at 352 degrees, while 9940 is Taipei, China, 100 kW at 2 degrees.

Aoki is more helpful with 9900 being 100 kW, 45(!) degrees from Paochung, Taiwan, and 9940, 100 kW at 2 degrees from Tamsui District, Taiwan, both on the JCI (Japan) A17 schedule, as ``Wind from Japan "il bon ue baram"``. WRTH spells it ``Ilbon-e Baram``, i.e. one of the abduxion stations. 1342 recheck, 9940 is off but algo is on 9900, i.e. same site, same service in Japanese, Furusato no Kaze (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 9700, July 11 at 0605, RNZI is VG at S9+20 and no CCI audible. Ivo Ivanov pointed out that RNZI QSYing to this frequency at 05-07 makes it collide with Romania at 0600-0630 in German (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 42, July 11 at 1430 UT, 4-channel station decodes, as tropo is enhanced from eastern OK, also bringing in Bad signals on many other UHF channels, correlating with Tulsa area market. Only other decode is RF 26, KTEN ``10`` Ada. 42 might have been the LD in OKC, but not now. I survey what`s contained within:

41-1 KMYT-TV, 41-2 GetTV, 41-3 GritTV, 41-4 HNI as per PSIP, but ``H&I`` shown in program promo, during an old Andy Devine B&W movie. But contrary to schedule showing Wagon Train at 9-10 am CT, per

Means Heroes & Icons. We don`t get this in OKC market, or local cable. Site is halfway between Tulsa and Muskogee with 900 kW ERP. KMYT MyTV will be repacked to RF 34 (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1885 monitoring: confirmed Monday July 10 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330.0v-CUSB, good. Also confirmed UT Tuesday July 11 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, VG S9+30. Next:
Tue 2130   WRMI 9455 to WNW, 15770 to NE
Tue 2330   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Wed 1030   WRMI 5850 to NW, 9455 to WNW
Wed 1315   WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 2100   WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Wed 2330   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW

** U S A. 9955, Monday July 10 at 2134, wall-of-noise jamming from CUBA, nothing audible from WRMI. What`s to jam now? Skedgrid shows Argentine media program `La Rosa de Tokio` this hour. Perhaps DentroCuban Jamming Command hasn`t realized that Radio Libertad is no longer getting a prepeat before 2315-2400. 

The 9955-only program grid has now been updated as effective July 3, and I have created this easy direct link to it:

** U S A. 15555-USB, July 10 at 2132, screaming gospel huxter, i.e. WJHR Milton FL with perpetual preaching of passé John Hill. Someone recently reported hearing this on LSB, but I reconfirm it`s USB only, and not even a residual carrier either. Beware: some receivers depending on settings can ``flip`` an SSB signal to the opposite SB, a phantom audible weakly (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 94.9, July 10 at 1918 UT, weak steady signal here squeezed between OKC market outlets, first unusual found as I bandscan upwards hunting for Es which map shows might reach here. Ad for a July 13 event at The Warehouse, tickets for tables of 6 or 8 only via 500-0042. Then fades out completely. That`s enough to search out the source to Wichita Falls TX, and the station somewhat NW of there is per WTFDA DB:

{KOLI, 94.9, ELECTRA TX, 50.0 kW H&V, 150.0 m HAAT, 34-05-01, 98-59-29, 361E, OUTLAW - Law Firm Ad, 94.9 - The Outlaw - The Best Country with a Texas attitude, Country, 94.9 THE OUTLAW, COUNTRY} Electra is 280 km = 174 miles away from Enid (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
