Glenn Hauser logs June 21-22, 2014

** BRAZIL. 5990, June 22 at 0515, RNA is JBA but // 6180.

// 11780 transmitter has gone out of whack again: huge signal is somewhat distorted on fundamental, and now again putting out extremely distorted FMy spurs at approx. 11750 and 11810, and weaker ones around 11720, 11835-11845, June 22 at 0517 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 960, June 22 at 0500 UT, tuning KGWA Enid to find whether there`s a Fox-hole tonight, instead there is a parody commercial for the ``Oil Slick Adventure Fun Park``, THEN dead air from 0501 to 0505 UT, mainly occupied by ABC News from KMA or KGKL. This is very unusual for KGWA; when there is a hole, it normally starts after the ID right at 0500 UT. No Google hits on that phrase (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, June 22 until 0114:53.5* JBA carrier from R. Chaski until cutoff, which is 10.5 seconds later than two nights ago (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SUDAN [non]. 15550, June 22 at 0527, R. Dabanga singing IDs, poor-fair. Seems about 7 seconds ahead of // 11650, fair with whine jamming, while 15550 has no audible jamming. 15550 is 240 degrees from UAE, which is roughly 90 degrees off-beam to here; 11650 is 145 degrees from VATICAN, roughly opposite from here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1726 monitoring: not confirmed on WTWW-2, 9930, Saturday June 21 at 2338 when `Amateur Radio Newsline` is running. Possibly WOR played at 2300 instead, as has happened a few times before; did anyone notice? After QSY to 5085 at 0000, another ARNL aired, followed by QSO show from Dayton.

WOR 1726 confirmed UT Sunday 0400 on WTWW-1, 5830.

New WOR 1726 also confirmed UT Sunday 0030 on WRMI-9, 9495. Next: UT Mon 0300v on Area 51 via WBCQ 5109v-CUSB (last week started two minutes early). (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12105, June 22 at 0533, 1252 chex, the WTWW-3 carrier is no longer staying on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
