Glenn Hauser logs October 26, 2013

** BOLIVIA [and non]. 6134.88, Oct 26 at 0048, music, poor signal but no het from 6135.0 and not // 11855 very poor talk with flutter, so R. Santa Cruz is on, and Brasil`s R. Aparecida is off from 6135 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDIA. Another check UT Oct 26 for the circa 0100 AIR anomalies: This time I have the recorder handy in case the unknown 36-37 note IS appear again on 11985, but there is not even any signal on 11985! Could be due to disturbed propagation, except 11740 Goa is still there, altho with SAH from CCI, poor with flutter.

9910, Oct 26 at 0055, tone test 1 kHz, typical of what AIR sometimes runs on 11985 at this time, prior to starting the wrong service Sindhi at 0100 --- AND there is NO signal on 11985, so suspect tonight it`s doubly wrong. Uplooked later, 9910 is supposed to be in a sesquihour break between two Aligarh site transmissions, Tamil ending at 0045, and Pashto starting at 0215; while 11985 is listed as Khampur site for Sinhala at 0045-0115. At 0058 tone stops on 9910 and standard AIR IS starts; but other stuff to check including Chaski and pirates around hourtop. When I return to 9910 at 0106, it`s off, so somebody fixed that mistake, but still nothing audible on 11985; 11740 is still on; and 9870 VBS from Bengaluru is in as usual mixing Turkey with one more day to go of that collision (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6930-AM, Oct 26 at 0051, very poor signal with music; also music past 0100 when it`s a little better, but then overshadowed by 6925-USB pirate. This thread,13414.0.html
identifies the 6930 as Boom Box Radio (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925-USB, Oct 26 at 0101 must have just come on as splashing upon weaker AM station on 6930 (Boom Box Radio); announcement by robo-fem, couldn`t copy for sure and right now the DX-398 battery of 4 x AA cells expire as I have been trying to squeeze every last drop of juice out of them; I have the new set standing by, and back in business by 0105 during a song about hillbillies, 0108 another YL announcement and just stops. Listening a couple minutes longer, some weak and hesitant CW, perhaps from something else. Seemed to start a call sign with V----. This thread IDs the music station as WAHR == Automated Halloween Radio:,13416.0.html

** PERU. 5980, Oct 26 at 0050, JBA carrier from R. Chaski,  until cutoff at 0102:09* which is 10.5 seconds later than last check 48 hours earlier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1692 monitoring: confirmed on Area 51 webcast starting at 0203 UT Saturday Oct 26 after some entertainment. Barely audible on 5110v at 0229 check. Next: Sat 0630 & 1430 (or not?) on HLR 7265-CUSB; Sat 1500 on WRMI 9955; Sat 2329v on WTWW-2 9930; UT Sun 0401v on WTWW-1 5830 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1680, Oct 26 at 0043 UT, not much signal on DX-398 until I plug in the external shortwire; then there`s HS football with a team named Wildcats, which are surely all over, but this correlates with Wossmann HS in Monroe LA, playing tonight vs Rayville; presumed KRJO Monroe LA instead of Classic Country (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
