Glenn Hauser logs February 9-10, 2019

** CHINA [non]. 6020, Feb 10 at 0103, CRI English, 300 kW, 305 degrees via ALBANIA has a LAH, and CCI from some other talk. Hard to make out sounding similar but not synchronized, so wonder if CRI from another site in English? It is prime-time for such self-QRM, as per HFCC, at 01-02 CRI is also via Kashgar, East Turkistan, 100 kW, 209 degrees but supposed to be in Urdu, not English. There is such a double-English CRI broadcast at this hour on 6180, via Habana and Kashgar. 6020 does not work out as a possible leapfrog from Cuba at this hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6010, Feb 10 at 0058, weak music // 5990 CRI relay not quite off yet, i.e. the leapfrog again over 6000 which this time is an open carrier prior to 0100 English. By 0102 5990 is off, 6000 in suptorted RHC English, 6010 also off. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, Feb 10 at 0655, RHC still AWOL from this frequency as has been for several nights now, so what will happen with the scheduled weekly Sunday Esperanto at 0700 on 6100? Still nothing: all RHC 49m frequencies off. If Esp`o weren`t RHC`s least important, lowest priority language, they could have put it on some other transmitter and/or frequency, as has happened before contrary to schedule. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

15140, Sun Feb 10 at 1601, RHC Esperanto starting here on unacknowledged frequency, as well as publicized 11760. Schedule announcement at 1603 still claims first broadcast is at 0800 on 6100! I seriously doubt they got 6100 back on the air just for that, but zzzz unchecked. Previous weeks it has been at 0700 on 6100, contrary to initial B-18 schedule, i.e. tacked on to end of English rotations. During announcement of frequencies, deep fade at 1600 part, but I think there was only one, i.e. not including 15140, which was added  months ago, other days only Spanish // 11760. Third broadcast to be Sun 2330 on 15730, not confirmed lately (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15700, Feb 10 at 1514, CRI Plus relay in English is S9+30/40 but very suptorted; wiggle that patchcord! Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15311, 15255, 14968, Feb 10 at 1521, only traces of a few of the plus/minus 26.8 kHz spur multiples from RHC 15140. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 9690-, Feb 10 at 1650, no signal from VON QRMing SBG from SPAIN, via UTwente SDR, so another Sunday without the new 1630- English broadcast heard most other days of week, in clear on weekdays when Spain does not start until 1900 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1968 monitoring: Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria says, ``GERMANY, Reception of World of Radio via HLR on 6190 CUSB on Feb.9 --- Today World of Radio previous edition 1967 instead of current 1968
0731-0800 6190 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg to CeEu English Sat, good signal

Reception of World of Radio via HLR on 9485 CUSB on Feb.9: Today again World of Radio previous edition 1967, instead of current 1968
1531-1600 9485 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg CeEu English Sat, fair to good``

WOR 1968 confirmed Saturday February 9 after 2200 on WRMI 9955, fair

Delayed on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO. Ham radio shows still running UT Sunday Feb 10 at 0428, 0454 chex but in progress at 0517 about 19 minutes into, so WOR started circa 0458, good S9+20 and no CWQRM.

I reminded HLR to get 1968 on air for final repeat, and Ivo confirmed:``World of Radio edition 1968 via HLR on 7265 CUSB on Feb.10
1131-1200 7265 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg CeEu English Sun, poor & weak``

** U S A. 9955, Feb 10 at 1527, WRMI with song in Spanish instead of The Full Gospel Hour, during weekend-only prolongation of this frequency past 1500*. But at 1529 abruptly resumes huxtergasms of Terry Blalock the Blaster. Must have been a lapse (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1660, Feb 10 at 1435 UT, speech affirming how global warming is happening, also referring to astronomy, big reverb as if a sermon in a church, but totally secular and rational --- until 1446 when Tom starts mentioning Jesus, soon organ music. No doubt it`s KWOD Kansas City KS, well atop lite CCI of sports talk, either Fargo or Waco. KWOD is also sports-talk but departs to get religion on Sunday mornings (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

UNIDENTIFIED. 9706-USB, Feb 10 at 0657, weak 2-way in Spanish, INTRUDERS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
