Glenn Hauser logs May 10-11, 2018

** FRANCE. 9690, May 11 at 2003, VP talk in language, maybe Hausa, Voice of Nigeria? A frequency seldom used tho in Aoki/NDXC. No, it`s really RFI in Hausa as per Aoki/NDXC and HFCC. Trace of a signal on 7255- which would really be VON in Hausa (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7470, May 11 at 0223, YHWH guy is JBA; rather reliable regular appearances now. Surprisingly, I find no logs of this at HF Underground since original reactivation May 2, nor any of 15085. I guess the HFU guys don`t stray much from the 42m ``pirate band``, unlike YHWH (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6905-AM, May 11 at 0238, JBA music, fading up to S7 vs S9+10 storm noise level crashing. A few other logs of this as unID:,42434.0.html

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1929 monitoring: confirmed Thursday May 10 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330v, but there is a slight problem: Brother Scare also keeps on going, so there is double audio, and of course I am outshouted, still the same when I give up at 2342. I do notice that both of us are on LSB and USB, no longer C+USB only. We could have had one sideband each, if this transmitter is even capable of ISB! Otherwise, let`s hope this never happen again. Or should I start shouting? Next:

Full schedule for WOR on all outlets, not just SW; podcast linx:

** U S A. 7490, Thursday May 10 at 2301, WBCQ with a new religious discussion show; strange break at 2314 for a brief spot commercial; 2329 outro as having been Tom Roberts, who told us earlier he was about to start:

``Dear Glenn, Thank you so much for all the information contained in the broadcast number 1928. As usual, it was very informative. 

I've begun a new program broadcast on WBCQ called Biblical Perspectives heard on 7490 Thursday at 5:00-5:30 PM MST [sic]. My topics cover everything from biblical scholarship to current affairs and other spiritual and controversial topics. This week, I'll be talking about the misunderstandings of Sabbath vs. Sunday in Christian history and how the liturgical church still keeps Shabbat in the Tri-idium of Eastern theology. I realize one half hour per week is not match for "Brother Scare". It's like David going after Goliath with a pea shooter! I've trying to be a voice of sanity and well reasoned arguments to help my audience to think critically about these issues. I will send thru Paypal a contribution to World of Radio as I am able. I'm so happy that two shortwave stations will have a power increase later this year. Sincerely, In His Grace, (Father Tom Roberts, PhD, KF7PKG, May 5, WORLD OF RADIO 1929, DX LISTENING DIGEST)``

Since WBCQ had an Available Time Slot at 0000 UT Fridays, I thought maybe the time he originally gave me, 5 pm MST, was correct, even tho Idaho is on MDT, but it`s really 5 pm MDT = 2300 UT Thursdays. Despite WBCQ already having a 7490 program then, `Camp Constitution Radio`, but it must have been a bonus filler to its original time of Mondays 2330 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3215, May 11 at 0523 check, WWCR-1 is still off the air (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VATICAN. 9705, May 11 at 2005, news about Africa (Kenya dam, DRCongo ebola, etc.) in English with heavy African accent; what`s this? Nothing listed in Aoki/NDXC. Keeps going past 2108, which rules out VOA or BBC; and of course, no English, or no English now, from DW or RFI. S8 signal is weakening and fluttering more, but 2110 ID as ``African service of ---``, bit of music and on to some feature. 

HFCC reveals that Vatican Radio started this new broadcast on 15 April, 2000-2030, 250 kW, 206 degrees from SMG, also followed by French at 2030-2100, and preceded at 1840-1900 by Latin on Sundays only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5833.50-USB, May 11 at 0547, 2-way in tonal language, unseems Mandarinish, despite 5830 WTWW not too strong (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15520, Friday May 11 at 1415, open carrier; suspect REE test, normally not on this early except on weekends. No other REEs now audible on 17855 or distorted 15390.

Wolfgang Büschel also reported, May 10: ``UNID carrier on 15520 kHz S=8 in Europe, at 0530 UT`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 2042 UT May 11
