Glenn Hauser logs July 6-7-8, 2017

** AUSTRIA. 9550, July 8 at 0429, soft jazz until 0429:30*. It`s AWR Turkish via Moosbrunn from 0400, erroneously shown until 0428* in Aoki, 0430* in HFCC & EiBi. Only we present the truth! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 11560, July 6 at 1828, Firedragon! jammusic at S7-S9, fast flutter, or rather a steady SAH of about 6 Hz, but no sign of any other audio from victim. Also is the only significant signal from E Asia now on the 25 m band. Still going past 1830 and 1900 --- but cut off a few seconds after, and not uncovering the other carrier which has also offed: Scheduled at *18-19* only is RFA Chinese via Saipan (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [non]. 9790, July 8 at 0431, French talk clearly audible under music and Cantonese from CRI via CUBA adding up to S9+30. With plenty of vacant frequencies around, there is no excuse for such a collision: RFI French via Issoudun at 04-05, 500 kW, 140 degrees; and CRI via ``Habana`` at 03-05, 250 kW at 305 degrees, as alleged in HFCC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6145, July 8 at 0422, RHC is still AWOL from this English frequency, while 6000 is poor and undermodulated; 6060 Spanish is good. I knew I would be wasting my time, but quite a while since I last checked 
--- Yup, *still* dated Abril-Noviembre *2016* so worse than useless for current info: ``6165`` at 01-07 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11840, July 8 at 0435, RHC is JBM in Spanish at only S4, but still enough to drag along the JBA spurcarriers on 11830 & 11850 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [non]. 15140, July 8 at 1805, no signal from RHC which is supposed to be in Arabic now; there is some weak Arabic, no doubt OMAN, which had this frequency first but RHC used to usurp it; and probably still will by 1900 for English; yet it seems that RHC is limping along with at least one less transmitter operational than usual (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ETHIOPIA [and non]. 7141-7155 & 7171-7179 approx., July 8 at 0423, tell-tale DRM jamnoise indicating they are attacking Eritrea actively intruding into 40m hamband again. But I cannot detect even a JBA carrier around the centers of these ranges (7150? & 7175?), probably too late. Some LSB hams are still trying to work inside the noise. I bet they have no idea what it is. Meanwhile, 7205, Sudan`s JBA carrier, is there at 0426 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** MADAGASCAR. 17640, July 8 at 1806, JBA carrier with trace of modulation, implying that the MWV English hour of African Pathways Radio is still vigent but virtually unpropagable over to here, unlike in B-season (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 11725, July 8 at 0434, RNZI, S7-S6 with pop music, ex-13840 at this hour; 11725 now before instead of after 0459 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. With previous report about KAMG-LP 92.1 Enid being dead air, I should have pulled up another item from its FCC Correspondence Folder, a consummation notice of transfer of control:

``Contact Representative (if other than licensee/permittee)

John Broomall! He was an active TV DXer long ago, the same person who went into the gospel-huxter station-broker business. His activities were dealt with previously in DXLD 13-41.

One more document: from 03/01/2011 also involved Broomall as Contact Representative, when original licensee Amigos Ministry (thus the call letters), was consummating assignment of license, signed by Salvador Cuadra, President.

Map of transmitter site still shows it on the south side of West Carrier Road (NW of Enid), just east of Oakwood, and Chisholm schools. This does NOT match the East Carrier Road address on record (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. KFOR-27, ``channel 4``, OKC, July 6 at 1800 UT ID slide at ToH shows a bunch of translators, as stations are required to do periodically. It`s only up for a few seconds, impossible to read, let alone retain. Note to self: have tape rolling next time, ready to freeze and photo, in case the list be accurate and up-to-date. I do so July 8 at 1800: NO SHOW, between programs, not even a legal ID for KFOR itself! Maybe a translator list on the website --- of course not. Even searching on `translator` gets nothing but some news stories mentioning that word, not talking about TV relayers! (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17530, July 8 at 1806, VOA with `Nightline Africa`, fair via Greenville. This sesquihour from 1700 is our last best hope to hear English direct from VOA Greenville. Looking thru the HFCC as of July 5 entries for GB, I see it also as the site for Bambara at 2130-2200 M-F on 13670, 15120. Yet, in B-16 as listed by EiBi, these had shifted much closer to Ascension, Botswana, respectively. Why back and forth? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1885 monitoring: first SW broadcast confirmed Thursday July 6 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9330.23v-CUSB, fair. No more logs until my next check 24 hours later: also confirmed Fri July 7 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9330.16v-CUSB, fair. [6190, Hamburger LokalRadio, Gohren, 0610-0700, 08-07, English, comments, songs, at 0630 Glenn Hauser’s program "World of Radio". 15321 (Manuel Méndez, Spain, dxldyg] Next:

** U S A. 9930 & 12105, Thu July 6 at 1826, both these WTWWs are AWOL, while 9475 continues.

5830, July 8 at 0419, WTWW-1 is off (nor on day frequency 9475), while 5085 is on with music. At 0447, 5830 is back on, S9+35 with hum. At 0448, 5085 with canned TedID, more rockmusic.

9930, Saturday July 8 at 1804, WTWW-2 is OFF, so no `Theater Organ from the Ozarx` unless it start later: 12105 WTWW-3 also off; but 9475 WTWW-1 is running the first priority ham radio show (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, July 6 at 1905, KVOH with Spanish praise music is really wobbly and distorted; any listeners put up with it? Do they hear it that way in the studio, or only monitor, if anything, the program-out feed line (as I suspect so many other stations do)? And it`s on air past nominal closing again, still 1915+. At previous tuneby 1825, it was not so unstable. We continue to wonder why KVOH keep running this defective old transmitter when they have a newer one. Still lacking all the parts for it?
