Glenn Hauser logs July 11-12-13, 2017

** ANGUILLA. 11775, July 12 at 1345, PMS is back on with OK modulation. However, Harold Frodge says it cut off at 1422:10* today in mid-preach. I recheck at 1916, it`s still off. 

Meanwhile, as I read later in the DXLD yg, Chuck, W3ON was hearing Caribbean Beacon on 11865 instead of 11775 at 1856-1910, OK modulation. This was previously reported by Dave Valko a few weeks ago as a spur of 11775. Then I check at 2043 to find nothing on 11865, but 11775 is back on with dead air. At 2101 it`s off again (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9575v & 9585v approx., July 13 at 0101, CRI relay on 9580 is dead air at least past 0103 at S9+30, but entertaining us with blobspurs on each side, the lower one QRMing the other CRI English relay on 9570 via Albania. Not rechecked 9580 until 0140 when it has managed to modulate (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6145, July 13 at 0114, RHC English is back on the air! Had been missing more than a week from this frequency at random evening chex. Now it`s S9+45 with good modulation level but some hum. // 6000 at 0117 check is less modulated at S9+30, also some hummy (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN [and non]. 7424.0-AM, July 13 at 0112, odd frequency in S6 Arabic talk and music catches my attention in bandscan. Must be VIRI, Zahedan, as scheduled on 7425 at 1730-0230, 500 kW at 289 degrees, per HFCC. Still at 0125, dead-air break at 0129, back with talk but only briefly, more dead air 0130-0138+. That`s demerit piled upon demerit.

By now, Greenville OC before Vatican relay violating Separation of Church and State, is already on early from 7305, and Martí continues on 7365, so I`m listening for the leapfrog mixing product another 60 kHz higher on 7425.0, which VOA used to accomplish sometimes, but Iran carrier remains hetless (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 92.1, July 12 at 1825 check, KAMG-LP is still running dead air. Yesterday I drove by the FCC-registered address for Maranatha Radio Corporation in Enid, 627 E Carrier Rd., and found the closest thing per mailboxes on the road in a semi-rural outskirsts area, was a residence at 625. Hmmm (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OMAN. 12015, July 13 at 0054, Qur`an at S1-S4, something I have not noticed before. HFCC shows only thing at 22-02 is RSO, 100 kW at 220 degrees. Aoki agrees except 315 degrees, which is more likely as that would be aimed USward. RSO makes lots of wooden registrations, with only one transmitter, could also be on 9500 or 9650 at this hour. Not to mention 15140, left on the air far beyond 2200 as sometimes happens. Could be a convergence of luck: solar flux unexpectedly bumped up to a hefty 90 yesterday, and axually transmitting on this frequency! But not much else trans-Atlantically on 25m (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7615-USB, July 13 at 0106, Civil Air Patrol net starting with contact between Triblade 20 and 19; one announces that Alert Level 3 is in effect (OMG!), and cites traffic list. Much weaker Beaver Fox 8 replies as willing to accept traffic. Cloak & dagger stuff from these para-militarists (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1885 monitoring: confirmed Tuesday July 11 at 2130 on WRMI 9455, fair, 15770 very poor. Also confirmed Tue July 11 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9330.0v-CUSB, fair. Also confirmed Wed July 12 at 2100 on WBCQ webcast, and then on 7490, very poor. Also confirmed Wed July 12 from 2331 on WBCQ, 9330.15v-CUSB, fair (one minute late after some ID overlaps and dead air: perhaps they were hustling to get 1886 downloaded in time, as it was unexpectedly available early by 2310; if so, thanks for trying).

** U S A. 5129.8, July 13 at 0143, WBCQ is very poor in summer noise level, but I can tell it`s Allan Weiner with a `Worldwide` playback.

7490.05 meanwhile, this being UT Thursday July 13 at 0144, is still airing `Hal Turner`, who earlier in hour was gloating about someone stringing an anti-Democratic banner across I-95 near Baltimore; and also musing whether he would get enough financial support to continue his revived show (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9930, July 12 at 1828 check, WTWW-2 is on with dead air instead of being completely off with no Dave Ramsey. 9475 WTWW-1 is on with abnormal SFAW, while 12105 WTWW-3 is still gone (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
