Glenn Hauser log December 28, 2014

** BRAZIL. 11747, Dec 28 at 0621, distorted spur from 11780.1 RNA/RNB, is very poor and JBA on 11813 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EGYPT [non]. 9395, Sunday Dec 28 at 1414, ME fill music playing from R. Cairo in weekly 1300 relay by Global 24 via WRMI, good signal; YL wraps up with headlines until 1422, mentions frequency 9860 which is normally non- or barely-modulated at 0200-0330; then G24 fills with RESPECT. Tnx to G24, this allows us to hear R. Cairo in English at least once a week (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KUWAIT. 21540, Dec 28 at 1511, R. Kuwait with good signal in Arabic, in fact better than the only other 13m audible, 21600 WHRI, not up to full blasting level yet. Kuwait had been AWOL for a while. Ivo Ivanov says 21540 just came back today, and it`s the same transmitter used for English at 1800-2100 on 15540, both 310 degrees toward W Europe, and thence North America. Is anyone hearing the 15540 broadcast now? Normally it`s inaudible here in the winter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 97.7 WFM stereo, Dec 28 at 0240 UT, sound-and-light show at a private residence on the west edge of Enid, as also the case the past few Xmases. As in DXLD 14-01, last year it was on 99.9, but that`s now occupied by a local LPFM. House is at intersexion of Pheasant Run (also name of the addition, turn off west from North Garland), and Club House. Mostly Mannheim Steamroller, and somewhat different light array, more LEDs than before, which is the irreversible trend. Again, very limited Part 15 range on 97.7, losing it by the time we`re back on Garland.

Then drove by the 89.5 Singing Xmas Trees site, but nothing heard or seen; already dark. It was at NE corner of West Oak and North Cleveland, not North Oakwood as I misreported a year ago (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
