Glenn Hauser logs July 17, 2017

** CUBA. 9530, July 17 at 0122, no JBA carrier here, so suspect R. Progreso is also absent from fundamental 4765 where it`s supposed to start at 0030: yes, it`s off. No RHC fundamental on 9535 either, power failure at site? No, Cuba still rampant on 5025, 5040, 6000, 6060, 6145; but MUF is also depressed: poor on 11760, 11840.

6100, July 17 at 0526 check, RHC English is AWOL from this frequency leaving only four of the Cuban Five, 5040, 6000, 6060, 6145.

11760, July 17 at 1301, RHC Spanish QSY announcement for 6100 to 15370 until 1500. (The other two 49m, 6000 & 6060, are supposed to continue another hour until 1400) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN. 7425.0, July 17 at 0130, algo JBA and nothing on 7424, so presumed VIRI Arabic via Zahedan back on proper frequency, scheduled all the way from 1730 to 0230 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 3185, July 17 at 0135, BS via WWRB; had been on 9370 at 0120 scanby, so the QSY accomplished at odd time between (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENNG DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1886 monitoring: confirmed Saturday July 15: ``11580 USA WRMI at 2300 with Glenn Hauser’s "World of Radio" - Very Good Jul 15 Coady-ON``. Also confirmed by Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria, Sunday July 16: ``GERMANY, Reception of HLR relays on 9485CUSB, July 16

** U S A. 9825, UT Monday July 17 at 0530, it`s not often that anything on WHRI causes me pause, but a version of ``Hallelujah`` nice song catches my ear --- not to a familiar tune, sounds rather Jewish, very minor key. Continues without announcements with other unfamiliar hymns in robust performances at 0533, 0538 past 0552 when I doze, and off when checked at 0600. WHR sked and consequently Aoki show:
9825 WHRI2 Water of Life Ministries 0500-0600 12345.. English 250  47 

Searching on that leads to:

** U S A. 1050, UT Monday July 17 at 0141 UT, start of interview in English with author of a book about guns, no sign of XEG yet but CCI from another; 0142 UT cut to ad for MO State Fair in Sedalia, and 0143 UT sig drops off, LSS for KSIS, 1000/86 watts U1 in Sedalia? Yes, official FCC sunset in June & July is 0145 (August: 0115). At first I thought the first station was something else, since the interview was interrupted just after it started. But sked for KSIS
confirms at 8 pm CT Sunday is: `Armed America Radio`, and if that`s not enough, at 11 pm, `The Gun Owner`s Newshour`, both from Townsquare network. A turn-off for visiting Sedalia? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1257 & 1283 kHz, July 17 at 0139 UT, IBOC noise is very evident QRMing 1260 and 1280 stations, therefore emanating from something on 1270. No doubt KFLC Fort Worth TX, 50/5 kW as still listed only IBOC active on 1270:
And on 1270 itself Spanish is atop sports in English from OK (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
