Glenn Hauser logs November 20-21, 2013

** BANGLADESH [non]. 15505, Nov 20 at 1358, checking for BB, but a JBA carrier at best, and some scratching sounds like some equally weak SSB, probably an intruder (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13680, Nov 20 at 2048 check, RHC European service is open carrier/dead air, during the semihour supposed to be in Arabic.

11880, Nov 20 at 2143, once again RHC in French instead of scheduled Portuguese, to Africa (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1696, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 5004.5-USB, Nov 21 at 0103 as I am checking the WWV offset on my BFO, I find a Navy MARS net here with good signals, including NNN0YCJ, and at 0110 talking about NWS Norman OK predicting ice storm here on Friday, says NNN0RKS, with NNN0QNN, calls given fonetikaly. Must be Oklahomans.

Searching on NNN0YCJ leads to this treasure trove of ``Oklahoma Broadcasts`` right up to last week:
NNN0YCJ is Mike P. Baker and had a birthday October 22.
NNN0QNN is Rodney, birthday April 29.
NNN0RKS is WADE P. NORRIS K5WFN DUNCAN OK 73533, birthday November 22.
Frequencies it seems are never mentioned in this document, but nets/frequencies are always referred to by code numbers. ``REMEMBER WE ARE OKLAHOMA, REGION SIX AND NAVMARCORMARS; PROUDLY SERVING THOSE WHO SERVE.`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU [and non]. 5980, Nov 20 at 0059, R. Chaski is back after being unheard since Nov 13. Music spans the hourtop past 0101; at 0102.5, I recognize a jingle heard before at this time in the Red Radio Integridad programming being relayed, and cut off at 0104:26*, which is close to my projexion of the precession during the missed week.

5980, Nov 21 at 0057, I find a big het here, or is it a tone, from a carrier much stronger than R. Chaski. It`s not exactly centered on 5980.0, but about 5980.4.

This carrier goes off at 0100:36* but comes right back on at *0100:46.

Nevertheless, with BFO I can still detect the much weaker carrier from R. Chaski which goes off at 0104:32*, six seconds later than last night, in the margin of error.

But what`s the new signal? I don`t detect any modulation on it other than tone. Unseems either side of the China Radio War, too strong and steady. Suppose it could be another form of Cuban jamming against nothing rather than the usual pulsing which periodically infests this frequency unused by R. Martí at all in the evenings (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1696, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 21630, Nov 20 at 1345, for a third day, REE is back on the clasher instead of 21640; and at 1355 no announcement whatever about this (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1696, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1695: first airing confirmed on WRMI webcast, UT Thursday Nov 21 at 0430, which now follows Studio DX with Roberto Scaglione in Italian. Too weak/too much noise to hear it on 9955. Repeats are still Saturday 1600, Tuesday 1200. Next:

On WTWW: Thursday 2201 on WTWW-1 9475; UT Sunday 0030 on WTWW-2 5085; UT Sunday 0501 on WTWW-1 5830.

On WWRB: UT Friday 0429v on 3195, and maybe 5050-USB like last week.

On Area 51 via WBCQ: UT Saturday 0300v on 5110v-CUSB.

On Hamburger Lokalradio, Saturday & Wednesday 0730 & 1530 on 7265-CUSB

Full schedule including many webcasters:

** U S A. 5050-USB, Nov 20 at 0058, WWRB with big band music, // 3215-AM. But Nov 21 at 0109, no WWRB on 5050-USB tonight (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 960, Nov 20 I did not check at 0600-0605 UT for the KGWA Fox-Hole, but at 0656 find KGWA is now in dead air, which lasts until  non-Fox hole news cuts back on at 0700, and just before that I get a clear ID for KMA 960 and KMA-FM 99.1, Shenandoah IA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1200, Nov 20 at 0105 UT, with WOAI nulled, I am getting somestation in Spanish, mentions ``La Raza``, which hints it is US, not Mexican, YL announcer for a while, before WOAI fades back up. I continue to check this most nights in hopes of hearing the Brazilian Portuguesish as once before, but which was probably not all the way from ZYland (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
