Glenn Hauser logs August 24, 2014

** AUSTRALIA. 9580 & 12065, et al., Aug 24 at 1254, during 1300 hour and after news at 1405, R. Australia is still running wide-ranging but religiously-orientated call-in talk show `Sunday Night` from ABC Local Radio, so spans 12-16 UT. 1405 promo about program sked changes in generalities. No ref to where we can find it, but now, at
``New Radio Australia schedule --- Our new schedule is now online. We have some great new shows and even more fantastic Australian music.  Some familiar programs have moved into new time slots but our much loved weekend coverage of the AFL and NRL remains. We hope you enjoy our new lineup - your feedback is always welcome.``

From that, we find the two shows which peripherally qualify for inclusion in our DX/SWL/Media Shows roster are now sked only at:
`Future Tense`,       Sun 0130 & Thu 0430
`Download This Show`, Sun 1100 & Tue 0430

`Late Night Live` is now really late night --- if you`re in North America: Tue-Fri 0600-0700, its only airing. Assuming there have been no changes in SW frequency usage, per the BDXC-UK BIE booklet for A-14, the ones during this hour are: 11945, 13630, 15240, 15415, 17750, 21725 from Shep, and 9660, 12080 from Brandon.

`Daily Planet`, world music show we have been hearing, is M-F 13-14.
`Unearthed` is dispensable JJJ show now gulping 4 hours at 14-18 M-F
Ignoring news on the hour, so presumably all start at :05 or :06

** EGYPT. 13850, Aug 24 at 0528, R. Cairo Arabic toward North America is just barely modulated, occasional peak spikes audible, fair with flutter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9935, Aug 24 at 0533, Greek songs, fair, better than // 9420; don`t usually find 9935 on this late; Alan Roe found a nominal schedule from ERTOpen dated July 15 showing 1200-0350 on 9935 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDIA. 9690, Aug 24 at 1322, AIR open carrier already on, with flutter; 1327 music starts but not the AIR IS, // better 13710; 1330 sign-on GOS to E & SE Asia on 9690, 11620, 13710. On 11620 we have no more than a JBA carrier, maybe this (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 11580, Aug 24 at 0527, this WRMI BS frequency is stronger than // 11825, reverse of usual situation, with 11825 aimed toward us and 11580 off the side. What could explain? Maybe very skewed propagation routes, assuming both transmitters and antennas are operating nominally (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15825, Aug 24 at 1315, WWCR is back on its proper frequency today after multi-hour excursion to 15795 yesterday; gospel huxter in progress.

Re: ``And does anyone recall where the 15 MHz broadcast band officially ends per ITU allocations? I don`t``

My DX-398 thinx it`s 15800 where it warns with a beep; confirmed by FCC, per Jim, K5JG, 19m band runs 15100-15800, as on page 14 of:
