Glenn Hauser logs September 16-17, 2018

** CUBA. 4765, Sept 17 at 0113, R. Progreso with rock music, S9+30 fading to S9 and modulation rather distorted. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5055, Sept 17 at 0110, JBA carrier, presumed leapfrog of 5025 over 5040 another 15 kHz higher; just too weak to hear any modulation to match either. If there is a reverse leap onto 5010, it`s totally blocked by WRMI fundamental, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13740, Sept 17 at 0115, RHC Spanish is S9+30 and over-modulated; woah, this is supposed to be a morning frequency only, at 11-14. Also VG on 11760; 11840 and its plus/minus 10 parasites; weak 11700; JBA carrier on 11980 probably leap of 11700 over 11840 another 140 kHz beyond --- but AWOL is 12000 which is supposed to run from 21 to 04 UT. Maybe punched up the wrong memory button on transmitter? Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000 // 6165, Sept 17 at 0140, both RHC English frequencies are dead air at S9+25 and still at 0146 recheck. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

6060, Sept 17 at 0142, RHC Spanish is overmodulated and splattering past 6050 HCJB and 6070 CFRX. // 13740 still on and I notice that `En Contacto` DX program has been replaced by a string of RHC self-promotions with hefty music, catch phrases, platitudes; plugging reforma constitutional (like allowing free multi-party elexions? Hahaha). Also anti-bloqueo propaganda, some event tomorrow at 10 am, during a month-long observance. Etc., etc., so `En Compañía del Doctor` also fails to appear at 0150. Also JBA carrier on 6270, presumed leapfrog of 6060 over 6165 another 105 kHz beyond. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1947 monitoring: Manuel Méndez, Spain reports: ``GERMANY: 6190, Hamburger LokalRadio, Goehren, 0620-0700, [Sat] 15-09, English, program “Media Network Plus”, at 0630 Glenn Hauser’s program “World of Radio”. 15311.

9485, Hamburger LokalRadio, Goehren, 1015-1110, 16-09, English, program “Media Network Plus”, at 1030 Glenn Hauser’s program “World of Radio nº 1947”, at 1100 Spanish, “Radio Tropical”, “Mundofonías”. 35433 (Méndez)

WOR confirmed here Sunday September 16 at 2130 on WRMI 7780, fair-poor. 

Confirmed UT Monday September 17 at 0300 on Area 51 webcast; and fair-good at 0328 check via WBCQ 5129.8 (0329 right into Hobart Radio International, claiming long-outdated frequencies such as 15770 WRMI and 3210 Unique Radio!)

Also confirmed UT Monday September 17 at 0330 on WRMI webcast (and 9955 was good checked a few minutes earlier). But not confirmed the webcast-only repeat at 0400, instead at 0415 Bible reading from Daniel in French. Next:
2330 UT Monday    WBCQ   9330v [maybe]
0030 UT Tuesday   WRMI   7730 [or 1948?]
2030 UT Tuesday   WRMI   7780 5950 [or 1948?]

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite:

** U S A. 15770, Sept 17 at 1701 & 1756 chex, no signal from WRMI, which Richard Langley was hearing yesterday reactivated, perhaps testing, at 1905-1930*. Its antenna was the one last year`s hurricane destroyed. However, propagation now is pitiful, with 15825 WWCR managing no more than a JBA carrier. 15770 would also be aimed eastward if the empty skedgrid be anticipatory (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5010, September 17 at 0110, WRMI with gospel huxter in Spanish; one of several anomalies to follow, as this frequency is supposedly scheduled only until 0100.

9955, UT Monday Sept 17 at 0120, WRMI with YL strumming guitar and talking about a song, then singing ``Frankie & Albert`` (not Johnny?). This must be `Blues Radio International` at 0100-0130, which come to think of it, I have not run across for quite some time on air, webcast or schedule; was it gone and then resumed? Anyhow, 9955 now shows it also Wed 0330, Fri 0130; and on 5950 Tue at 1000. 

7570, UT Monday Sept 17 at 0126, WRMI, OM in Japanese! Could it be a RAE playback at wrong time? Nothing about Argentina, but mentions karaoke, Israel more than once, Babyron, Kuristo, and ``no thank you``; 0129 gives a www. web address, the rest non-understandable. 0130 switches to YL in Korean without missing a beat, also sounds Koristian. Recheck at 0150 now it`s a YL in Chinese. This is totally contrary to the skedgrid which still claims 7570 at 01-02 among many other times, is Overcomer daily. Some new ministry thinx it`s reaching East Asia at this hour before noon over there??

5950, UT Monday Sept 17 at 0137, WRMI with Jeff ending a Wavescan at this odd hour, QSL address, etc., music fill; 0141 start over with opening theme, and WS #493 for the week of August 5! Maybe not the same one which just finished. On the contrary, skedgrid claims 5950 at 01-02 daily is Oldies, and // 9395.

7730, UT Monday Sept 17 at 0151, WRMI has Scourby pontificating Bible readings, presumably out of The Overcomer (is HQ flooded???). At 0130 it was // 5850 with the ministry replacing WORLD OF RADIO, and it`s still going at 0151 while 7730 has defaulted(?) away from him.

9395, UT Monday Sept 17 at 0152, WRMI running Blalock the Blaster, i.e. `Full Gospel Hour [sic]` as scheduled 0130-0200 UT Sat/Sun/Mon and also on 5950, but NOT there: see above.

9955, UT Monday Sept 17 at 0153, toward the end of the 0130 Wavescan, Jeff reading some logs by Harold Sellers, a regular feature. Not // 5950 with the way out-of-synch playback. BTW, for last update of DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS, I found *three dozen* scheduled weekly airings of WS on WRMI, some on two frequencies. 

With all these anomalies tonight, I am wondering if the clox are wrong on some of the WRMI automation. RHCuba is also way off-schedule, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Missing stations early UT Monday September 17 at 0131 check: 7505 WRNO, 5050 WWRB, 7490 WBCQ (but 5129.8 & 9330.1 are on) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7385, Sept 17 at 0132, blasted signal from WHRI is splattering over both much weakened RRI frequencies! 7375 in French, 7395 in Romanian, even when I tune to the opposite sideband. See also VIETNAM [non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VIETNAM [non]. 7315, Sept 17 at 0134, Voice of Vietnam via WHRI in wrong language, English instead of Spanish; giving 900# for flight info during newscast; was there a crash or some other disruption? Missed full item. Bigsig with some squeal, and splattering past 7305 where VOA GB carrier for 0145 Vatican relay is already on to violate Separation of Church & State. Anyhow, GB apparently far enough off the Florence track not to be flooded or blown off (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA carrier search, Sept 16 at 0612: 837, 621, 855, 936, 1089, 1431. Also one on 846 which I always check first around this hour and assume to be trans-Pacific, Kiritimati.

It seems that 936 Agadir, Morocco, is a ``normal`` catch on the east coast, along with many others, but I don`t see any remarx about it being stronger than before/usual. If it continue to show up beyond in deep North America while little else is TA, that might be a clue it has upped power as planned (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4810, Sept 17 at 0112, JBA carrier vs. weak CODAR on the low side, usual huge utehash on the high side. I renew my request for anyone in South America to check whether Radio Logos, Peru be active, or not, as no replies have come to my last three inquiries --- I might do better if I posted this as an individual item, but should not have to (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
