Glenn Hauser logs June 18-19-20, 2015

** ANTARCTICA [non]. 9590, June 19 at 2130, no signal at all when BBC was supposedly going to test Woofferton for the June 21 BAS special; however, another report said they had already decided which frequencies to use. Anyhow, don`t expect much signal here for the real deal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BOLIVIA. 6105.3, June 20 at 0014, very poor signal with some audio, presumably the Chile/Bolivia SBG on R. Panamericana that Bob Wilkner in SFL tipped us about at 2330. Also checked 12365-USB in case CBV was on again with relay but nothing heard there (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. Re my channel 2 TVDX which included the ``Channel 590 Community Calendar``, on second thought, ``Channel 590`` would more likely refer to a high-tier cable or satellite TV channel than a MW frequency --- but searching various providers in the SSM area, no match for that either. Possibly some station other than CHBX snuk in. There is supposedly a ch 2 analog still active in NB, CHCH5 with CTV like CHBX, but I can`t relate it to the 590 MW station altho it is ``community``.

Richard Langley in NB says, ``Hi Glenn: With regard to your TV DX, commercials for retirement in Elliot Lake are shown across Canada, I believe. I've certainly seen them on our cable feed here in New Brunswick. – Richard``

Richard, OK, but that bit I got from reading about EL on their website, not from something in the DX. Just the 60th anniversary note. 

A bit more sporadic E despite antenna aimed SSE, June 19, UT:
1738 on 2, ads in English, video; some hum, low audible het? 1741 word QUANTICO flashes on screen. As far as analogous signals go, especially when 6m Es maps agree, CHBX Sault Ste Marie Ont remains the prime suspect, at optimum skip distance, altho another Ontarian, CIII2, Global in Bancroft, is probably active too (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [and non]. 21690, June 19 at 0509, CNR1 jammers, echoing, along with target RFA in Chinese, fair.

14920, June 19 at 1248, CNR1 jammer, fair; none in the 12s, 13s, 16s
14870, June 19 at 1248, CNR1 jammer, poor 

** MEXICO. A bit of sporadic E, evening of June 18 = UT June 19:
0134 on 2, f bug in LR, = Televisia net 4 Foro TV, JBV
0139 on 2, Spanish language audio briefly
0215 on 2, algo video 
0338 on 2, Spanish video, then Gala swirl bug in LR, drama
0352 on 2, SIPSE and GALA animated logos full-screen so XHY-TV Mérida (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 94.3, June 17 at 1526 UT, while tuning for Es DX, notice that local KLGB-LP Enid has buzz on main carrier and louder buzzy spurs on 94.1 and 94.5 [not 93.5 as typo in original report] (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1778 monitoring: confirmed Thursday June 18 at 2100 on WRMI 7570; also confirmed Friday June 19 at 2130 on 15770, and 2130.5 on 7570. Next:

Access to podcasts, latest and previous shows:

** U S A. 9955, June 19 at 1236, African chanting and drumming, 1239 another such tune, must be fill music from WRMI instead of R. Slovakia International (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5109.8, UT Fri June 19 at 0516, no BS from WBCQ, which had been running until 0700 weeknights --- schedule change already, or transmitter crash again? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15650-15675 approx., 1413 UT June 17 [date and time missing from original report], crackling distorted FMy spur from WWCR which is // inbooming on 15825 (bodes well for a good sporadic E day). Tried for a match on the hi side which would be 15975-16000 but none heard there (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1280, June 19 around 1830-1930 UT chex, KSOK Ark City KS remains off the air. BTW, I notice that some log editors don`t like to publish non-logs, but I think this info is just as significant if not more so than when a station *is* on and routinely loggable.

Of course nothing on their website
about an outage, where 1280 (since 1947y) appears to be a mere appendage to their FM 95.9, tho separately programmed. I hunt thru their Facebook 
and find this after mostly commercial and event promotion:

``KSOK Radio Yesterday at 7:48am · [1248 UT June 18] Folks, we are working to get 1280AM back up and running! We'll Keep you posted! Like · Comment Booker T. Jennings III, Jenny Clark and Samantha McDonald like this``  (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
