Glenn Hauser logs August 5-6, 2017

** BRAZIL. 9725.42, August 5 at 2325, JBA carrier, no doubt R. Evangelizar on its heightened frequency; Carlos Gonçalves, Portugal had it on 9725.4 July 20. Nothing now on 9725.0 or below (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 5990, Aug 5 at 2330, CRI English relay is very undermodulated; so is the 13650 Portuguese.

9580, Aug 6 at 0100, CRI English relay is dead air, while it`s underway on 9570 Albania, adverting us that this hour is a repeat of a subsidiary of CRI at 7 am BJ time = 23 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GERMANY [and non]. 9925, August 6 at 0055, The Mighty KBC from Netherlands, if that`s what it is, achieves nothing but a JBA carrier. Something must be wrong there; also like this a biweek ago (and last week we were distracted by the 5125 PR heater). Claimed power on 9925 is 125 kW at 300 degrees toward North America. Is it because of a more northerly path from Nauen, east Germany, than many other Europeans? It might seem so, but I check on a globe: It`s essentially the same bearing from here as Bucharest and Ankara, grazing 61 degrees north, still south of the Arctic Circle, off Iceland. So I check the others:
9935 Greece is S9 to S9+10
9790 Romania is S9-S6, 9730 Romania is S9+10 to S7

** NORTH AMERICA. 6940-AM, Aug 6 at 0108, music at S8-S7 which is about the same as the noise level. The only sign of pirate activity for me this evening, after earlier check circa 2300-2330. A few other unID logs of this:

** PERU. 5980, August 5 at 2329, I tune in ``early`` for R. Chaski, since I figure by now they will have reset the autotimer back closer to nominal 2330* --- but no signal even now, so indeterminate (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1899 monitoring: confirmed Saturday August 5 at 2254, the 2230 on WBCQ, still off-frequency-plus at 9331.32v-CUSB, fair. Also confirmed Sat Aug 5 at 2319, the 2300 on WRMI 11580, S9-S7 unusually with some hum, and slightly high circa 11580.02. Also confirmed at 0206 UT Sunday August 6 the 0200 on WRMI 11580+, S9+20/10. Next:
Sun 0315v  WA0RCR 1860-AM ND
Sun 1030   HLR  9485-CUSB to WSW [maintenance break until Aug 13]
Sun 2330   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Mon 0300v  WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0330   WRMI 9955 to SSE
Mon 2330   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030   WRMI 7730 to WNW

** U S A. 9331.32v-CUSB, Sat Aug 5 at 2300 after WOR, ID for WHVW Hyde Park (Pirate Joe`s non-pirate station), but quick cut to WTO opening an `AWWW` playback on WBCQ, with --- Pirate Joe substituting as AW is off at a hamfest in NH, Near-Fest. That`s in April or May, I think, if the playback is even from this year.

7490.01-AM, Aug 5 at 2301, Pirate Joe is also on this WBCQ, presumably live amid his `SW Saturday Night`. He`s hunting for an electoral map on the web to confirm Trump did NOT win NH as he recently claimed. There is no end to the acting president`s stupid lies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9455, Sat Aug 5 at 2318, Bob Biermann is preaching so must be amid an unscheduled airing of `Your Weekend Show` (axually, I will not claim it, rather `His Weekend Show`, or rather2, `My Weekend Show`.) 

I suppose it would have been on the Biermann prime channel 9395, except during this hour it`s overturned to the Overcomer, and at 23-24 Brother HyStairical happens to have neighboring //s not synchro from 9350 WWCR and 9370 WWRB; but at 2327 recheck, 9370 is off and so is its eventual successor 3185, but which is audible in the nearby storm noise circa 0100 August 6 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12050, Aug 5 at 2323, WEWN Spanish S9 with no spurs, so maybe the 12059.63 one earlier against Algeria non on 12060 was a birdie in the other receiver (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9475, Aug 5 at 2327, WTWW-1 is on and undermodulated with SFAW talk about vitamins; all WTWWs had been off earlier in afternoon.

5085, UT Sunday August 6 at 0103, WTWW-2 is on at S9+40 to S9+20 with `Theater Organ in the Ozarx` starting almost on time. Bob Heil says he will be playing recordings of a modified Hammond Organ he made and installed in Columbus OH (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7504.957v-AM, Aug 6 at 0110, WRNO is S9+30 and varying slightly. Had not bothered to log this lately. Woman is talking about out-of-body, near-death or even death experience at hospital (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
