Glenn Hauser logs May 12-13, 2018

** CANADA. 6070, May 13 at 0609, JBA carrier, unlike CFRX, and unseems on low side, so off, instead Vatican or Germany? However, Manuel Méndez, Spain reported: ``CANADA, 6070, CFRX, Toronto, 0356, 0610, 13-05, English, comments, male, female, songs, at 0430 news. Advertisements, mentioned "Montreal", "Coast "to Coast AM. 15431``.

Would have been simultaneous except that ``0610`` looks like it should have read 0410 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 9925, May 13 at 0002, rock music with good signal, and 5960 is off, so The Farty KBC via GERMANY has succeeded in QSY, one week later than publicized (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1929 monitoring: 6190, Hamburger LokalRadio, Goehren, *0600-0700, 12-05, English, ID "This is Hamburger LokalRadio", program "Switzerland in Sound", at 0630 Glenn Hauser’s program "World of Radio". Very weak. 15321 (Manuel Méndez, Lugo, Spain, Logs in Friol, Tecsun S-8800, Cable antenna, 8 meters, WOR iog via DXLD)

Saturday May 12, not confirmed on WBCQ 9330v-AM, at 2130, 2230 or 2330, instead Brother Scare continues. Due to shopping, mowing, etc., I miss checking WRMI 7780 Sat May 12 at 2300 & UT Sun May 13 at 0200; can anyone confirm or unconfirm those this week? Confirmed UT Sunday May 13 at 0335 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO, 13 minutes into show, so started circa 0322 (gh) 

GERMANY, Reception of World of Radio via HLR on 9485 CUSB, May 13

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

** U S A. 5129.820, May 13 at 0600, surprised to find WBCQ with soul, other music, S9+10, NOT TOMBS, and not // that on 9330.116 with Scourby. Maybe 5130 with extended Area 51 or test with who knows what audio. Normally both would be Brother-Scaring at this hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, May 13 at 0559 tune-in to hear WTWW with a woman talking, yet chopped off the air at 0559.5* as if on a timer. BUT, recheck at 0607 it`s back on, interview about lobbying. Don`t listen long enough to figure out whether this is a ham, gospel-huxter, or political program (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15825, May 13 at 1608, WWCR-1 is still doing a Latin mass during this semihour Sundays, but now with distorted modulation. It seems to me that WWCR is on the decline, with fewer and fewer hours on air (tnx much to Brother Overfondler), and transmitters wearing out. Anyhow with S9+10 signal tnx to sporadic E over which WWCR has absolutely no control (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15240-, Sunday May 13 at 1610, no signal detectable on-or-off frequency from WWRB for Radio Munansi; yet Es-boosted neighbor WWCR 15825 achieves 10 over 9, so must conclude WWRB is off again. Nor anything via UTwente SDR at 1640, except splash from 15250. Maybe something to do with downsizing, demolishing antennas. Is the ``Uganda`` rhombic the one Dave plans to retain? More likely something better for North American coverage on lower bands. 

Meanwhile, Dave Frantz updates as of May 13: ``GREETINGS!!! We still have the tower sections for sale at $50.00 per section, cash and carry. The transmitters were scrapped due to liability reasons. We plan on keeping the station on the air with one transmitter and one antenna. The rate is $25.00 per hour for 100 kW on PRIME frequency's that listeners can HEAR!!! 90 day CONTRACT is REQUIRED, CASH or money order in ADVANCE, no pay pal or credit card, we`re not playing that game....`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
