Glenn Hauser logs November 23, 2014

** BRAZIL. 11745, Nov 23 at 0154, distorted spur from RNA 11780.1, and I can also barely make out // audio on 11815 vs huge splash from 11825 BS on WRMI. Sorry to keep reporting these, but RNA should be even sorrier to keep transmitting them, since as abnormality they demand attention, altho everyone else seems to be overlooking them (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 13715, Nov 23 at 0159, good signal with very nice Chinese harp-like musical prélude, 0200 CRI theme, ID in Chinese, and then opening S Asian language. HFCC shows Tamil at 02-03 southward from Kashgar (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EGYPT. 9860, Nov 23 at 0148, R. Cairo, good signal, open carrier/dead air instead of Spanish

9965, Nov 23 at 0148, R. Cairo good signal in somewhat distorted Arabic, whine, flutter

12035, Nov 23 at 0156, R. Cairo, fair signal, very distorted music modulation, presumed Spanish service, would be // silent 9860

12080, Nov 23 at 0156, nothing here from R. Cairo, maybe just closed down (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9420, Nov 23 at 0145, ERTOpen is open, Greek talk // weaker 9935 which is whineless. Yes, 9420, not 9415; nor 9405, another frequency jump where Alan Roe, England was hearing it a few hours earlier at 2100 Nov 22. Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria replied, ``only for few minutes on 9405, at 2130 on 9415`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN. 9445, Nov 23 at 0146, animated conversation in overmodulated, distorted Spanish. Hadn`t noticed this before, but I should have, as it`s 500 kW, 304 degrees from Kamalabad, VIRI at 0020-0220; altho I have noticed the much weaker // 7420 at 0020-0320 which is 259 degrees from same (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 7375, Nov 23 at 0137, on The Mighty KBC, Kraig Krist is introducing his Forgotten Song of the week, which ranked #11 somewhen, and I don`t catch the title; fair with heavy fading via GERMANY. But Kraig notifies the DXLD yg:

``If the "Giant Jukebox" was missed on Saturday evening, if the "Forgotten Song" was missed, please remember I'll do my best to post studio quality audio by Wednesday at  On the November 23, 2014 "Forgotten Song" I featured a duet featuring Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6955.0-AM, Nov 23 at 0138, music right into full ID, ``Broadcasting in C-Quam stereo to the world, this is XFM shortwave, music to the power of X``. Still going at 0204 with hard rock. Really good signal, in fact quite stronger than Global 24 on 100 kW(?) WRMI 9395. But Global 24 has much more innovative programming than the pirates who are mainly into rock music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OMAN. 11650, Nov 23 at 0153, Qur`an with reverb, artificial or in an echoey venue? Fair-good signal from R. Sultanate of Oman (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395, UT Nov 23, Global 24 observations: tune-in at 0133, fair-good signal with someone on phone monologuing about evolution, aliens, Easter Island, etc. 0140 commercial break including Figliozzi`s listening guide from W5YI, Universal or Amazon; ConnectorZone; 0141 mentions Wayback Machine, The Rock Pile on Global 24 twice a week; 0143 ad for Sterling Connector(?) from; Midas Brakes (national!); 0144 back to guest Allen/Alun/Allan/Alan/Allyn Roberts; 0156 says another hour to go; 0200 G24/WRMI ID interrupts, ad, 0201 news from London; 0204 FSN optional cutaway, more news;

0206 outro FSN, back to the Fringe Radio Show, promo ``Game & Movie Empire Show`` on the last Saturday of each month, i.e. presumably next week during this timeblock. FRS at 0210 is ``honored to be a part of Global 24 Radio``, and also on AM 630 in Sandy/Salt Lake City, Utah, [KTKK] and the Inception Radio Network. Topics are anything mysterious including UFOlogy; See 0212 back to A. Roberts, author of book ``Adam [?] to Omega``. Fringe show is on the G24 schedule for four hours, 01-05 UT Sundays. Reception has been fair and readable, but even a pirate, XFM on 6955, has a much stronger AM signal; see NORTH AMERICA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15420v-CUSB, Nov 23 at 0130, WBCQ on late here, laughing and TimTron comments, etc., poorly audible, // 5110v-CUSB // 7490v, but nothing on 9330, 0214 recheck, no 15420 or 9330, and at 0215, 5110 and 7490 are now in separated programming: 5110 with a Bill Cosby standup routine (hmmm) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505+, Nov 23 at 0205, WRNO missing for at least the second night (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
