Glenn Hauser logs September 14-15-16, 2018

** BRAZIL [non]. 3365.1v, Sept 16 at 0033, JBA carrier where I have been seeking the reactivated R. Cultura de Araraquara --- but it keeps drifting downward and vanishes when I switch to the shortwire from the Wellbrook, so another of its birdies; beware (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 9565v, 9630v, 9665v, 9725v, 9819v, Sept 15 at 0621 bedtime bandscan, weak off-frequency ZYs are the OSOB. WWV: SF 69, K-index 3, no storms past or future (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6020, Sept 15 at 0624, RHC English here on new sixth frequency! About The Cuban Five. Axually it`s a leapfrog mixing product I haven`t heard before, 6100 over 6060 another 40 kHz lower. But no reverse carrier to be heard on 6140. 6020 is only S5-S6; 6060 is S9+20, overmodulated & distorted, 6100 is S9 and undermodulated. Bystanders: 6000 is S9+10 and suptorted; 6165 not checked. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KIRITIMATI [and non]. 846, Sept 15 at 0644, JBA carrier presumed R. Kiribati; only other 9-kHz one noted was 801 kHz at 0641, still a bit early for 500 kW Pyongyang; it`s an RNE Spain synchro frequency adding up to 85 kW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 800, Sept 15 at 0643, praise music in Spanish mentioning ``adoracion``, presumed XEROK CiJz with new gospel-huxter format. No CKLW at the moment, but always KQCV OKC to be avoided. XEROK no longer a ``cannon``, with reduced power (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6935.36-AM, Sept 16 at 0039, unID JBA music at S3. These say it was Man Cave Radio:,46008.0.html

6870-USB, Sept 16 at 0040, music, looping? At S5-S8. Many logs here 
say it was Mix Radio International:,46009.0.html

A bit earlier 43m bandscan at 0008 found no pirate signals (Glenn Hauser, OK DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 92.1, September 14 at 1922 UT on caradio in western Enid, in the continued absence of local KAMG-LP, and despite parked on the north side of a 2?-storey building, totally dominating is 100 kW KFXI with plain ID, Duncan ads; it`s axually licensed to Marlow, 11 miles north of there, neither very far from the much larger market of Lawton. Did not hear this brand as in WTFDA FM Database: ``KFXI Foxy 92 The Real Country Giant`` (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1947 monitoring: confirmed Saturday September 15 starting at 1231 on Unique Radio via WINB, after HRI and an ID. S9 and less wobble than usual.

Barely confirmed with a trace, then slightly improving, Sat Sept 15 at 1434 on Hamburger Lokalradio 6190-CUSB, via Utwente SDR. Alan Gale, England, reports: ``Hi Glenn, Unusually good propagation today, HLR was audible from when I tuned in at 1230 UT and stayed constant right up to closedown, so easy reception of World of Radio at 1430 UT. Channel 292 and Radio Europa were also coming in well here, so 6 MHz seems to be in good shape today for a change`` 

Also confirmed UT Sunday Sept 16 at 0336 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO, S9+20/30, about 23 minutes into show, so started circa 0313, Next:

** U S A. 5050, UT Sunday Sept 16 at 0015, and again at 0045 check, WWRB is off at times it is supposedly on; also no signals on any possible alternate 90m frequencies previously used, 3145, 3185, 3195, 3215 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6025V, September 16 at 0011, two very weak carriers, slightly apart making double and variable het with BFO; and without BFO, a trace of modulation. Only pair scheduled now are Radio Patria Nueva, BOLIVIA, and TIBET, possibly grayline. OR it`s just RPN with a wobbly carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7267.5-LSB, Sept 16 at 0036, strange net here, not the sought Hurricane Watch which was active yesterday on 7268-LSB. Calling KI5BEG, WU2T without response; except someone interrupted with vocalized humming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9505-USB, Sept 16 at 0023, 2-way in Spanish, S3-S4 INTRUDERS; also some intermittent music, apparently in background pickup (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
