Glenn Hauser logs September 29, 2011

** ANTARCTICA. 15476, Sept 29 at 1241, 1315, no signal from LRA36, so suspected another silent Thursday. However, at 1348 a carrier was detectable, and at 1408 JBA but enough to het another JBA on 15480 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. Firedrake Sept 29:
10300, JBA at 1333
13920, very poor at 1332
15275, very poor at 1326

15750, good at 1329. Steve Handler, IL, was also hearing this and wondering why it went off at 1330. I find the answer in Aoki:
``15770 SOH Xi Wang Zhi Sheng 1300-1330 1234567 Chinese 100 95 Dushanbe-Yangiyul TJK 06848E 3829N SOH a11 15750-15795``
That is, SOH jumps around between 15750 and 15795, other frequencies where I believe we have heard FD in the past

16100, JBA at 1330; none in the 14s, 17s, 18s

** MEXICO. 720, Sept 29 at 0528, full ID for Radio Coahuila, Saltillo at this odd time, making SAH with WGN about the same as the one KSAH makes, also in Spanish from San Antonio, Tejas. Cantú shows only 250 watts at night: Maybe Radio Coahuila is the group name, or a generic:
720 XEDE La Kaliente Saltillo, Coah. 8,000 250

Sunrise MWDX Sept 29, UT:

580, Sept 29 at 1154 UT, lots of birthday greetings, including to someone in Múzquiz (Coahuila), and several in Tejas, 1157 ``La Rancherita del Aire``:
580 XEMU La Rancherita del Aire Piedras Negras, Coah. 5,000 2,500

610, Sept 29 at 1157 UT, ``visítenos en Nueva Rosita``, and two-letter call interjected. N.R. is a nearby city to:
610 XEBX La Primera Sabinas, Coah. 5,000 500

610, Sept 29 at 1158 UT, ``G-S`` truncated ID had overtaken frequency:
610 XEGS La Ley Guasave, Sin. 1,000 500

650, Sept 29 at 1209 UT, `Panorama Agropecuario` farmshow, into weather segment discussing hurricane threat. Had just heard same on XEGS 610 and this time confirmed they are //, stronger on 650 with hum, i.e.:
650 XETNT Radio 65 + FM 106.5 Los Mochis, Sin. 5,000 1,000

760, Sept 29 at 1211 UT, choral NA ending way late, 1212 Radio Geny ID, ``viva México``:
760 XENY Radio Geny Nogales, Son. 5,000 100

870, Sept 29 at 1213 UT, mañanitas from XETAR had SAH and CCI from an SS in the USA: q.v.
870 XETAR La Voz de la Sierra Tarahumara Guachochi, Chih. 10,000 D

1050, Sept 29 at 1217 UT, ``Radiorama, Mil Cincuenta AM`` (1050 could be pronounced both this way and Diez Cincuenta, strangely enough). Cantú has no such name on 1050, but it`s a group. Googling leads right to XED Mexicali which Cantú has as:
1050 XED W Radio Mexicali, B.C. 10,000 D
I thought W Radio and Radiorama were competitors; did they sell XED?

** SWAZILAND. 9500, Sept 29 at 0508, preacher in African English, praising a lord and citing Zechariah, poor. Is TWR, 100 kW, 5 degrees from Manzini at 05-08 per HFCC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 870, Sept 29 at 1213 UT, XETAR, Chihuahua, usually totally in the clear, is now getting CCI from another Spanish station, generally separable by rotating DX-398, and obviously American with PSAs about United Way and IRS with those names pronounced in English, then ``8-70 AM, Radio Variedades`` ID.

Surely it`s KFJZ Fort Worth. 2011 NRC AM Log does not have this slogan and shows it as SS:RELigious, but certainly not now, plugging their variety of music. There are two other little US stations on 870 in CO and MO, neither listed as Spanish at all (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1110, Sept 29 at 1218 UT, rather startled to hear Qur`an being sung by a tenor, then interrupted by some English words, presumably translation; 1221 onto unsung talk in Arabic(?). Could not get a null on it, and could not separate it from KFAB. Surely it is one of the Texans, either the newish KVTT Mineral Wells (The Metroplex), which I thought was Christian, and tho 50 kW days has a big null toward us; OR KTEK Alvin (Houston), a 2.5 kW daytimer listed as BizRadio (in English) by NRC AM Log. I`ll assume the latter, with a pattern aimed right at us (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15610, Sept 29 at 1409, Mother Angelica crax a joke and provoxe laffs, as her modulation also crackles continuously; plus squishy spurs at plus and minus 9 and 18 kHz, i.e. 15592, 15601, 15619, 15628, but not much around at the moment to be QRMed (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
