Glenn Hauser logs June 28-29, 2015

** AUSTRALIA. 15550, June 28 at 1242, very poor signal with gospel huxter on AM, seemingly English with consecutive translation into algo, 1243 hymn, 1245 ``Reach Beyond Australia, life-changing radio`` ID and off. HFCC shows 340 degrees from KNX in Mandarin. Interesting to hear some g.h. other than WJHR here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. Channel A2, NTSC, June 28 at 1449 UT, video fades in; will it be Spanish or English? The latter, soon preaching, 1452 already wrapping up `Living Truth`, with contact info, including .ca website, Toronto address. For less than a minute, the video is strong and sharp, despite antenna still aimed toward México. I bet it`s CHBX, Sault Ste Marie Ont., now my prime Canadian TVDX not yet DTV --- yes, schedule for CHBX shows `Living Truth` Sunday 10-11 am EDT. 6m map alleges MUF is 113 MHz centered around Illinois, so I check for SSM FM: 88.1 could bear CBON-FM-18, 3.59 kW, SRC; 89.5 has CBSM-FM = CBC Radio 1, 46 kW, but neither making it here. No more TV or FM DX today (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5990, June 28 at 0103, CRI relay is still on in English, failing to cut off before 0100; and June 29 at least carrier still on at 0103. Noticed as I was checking Chaski on 5980, but couldn`t get a sharp cutoff time for it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE [and non]. 11645, June 29 at 0509, R. Dabanga via VATICAN has low rumbling het, presumably ERA active on the frequency it used long before Dab shifted to it, but not enough audio to make // to 9420 which is fair and clear. At least the tone jammer has the good nonsense to stay on 11650 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1779 monitoring: confirmed all three Sunday broadcasts on WRMI: 2100 on 15770, 2300 on 11580, UT Monday 0330 on 9955, all sufficient. Also confirmed on Area 51 via WBCQ, 5110-CUSB, just barely audible Monday from 0302 and still on by 0327 as well as webcast. Next:
1100 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955
0630 UT Wednesday HLR 7265-CUSB
1315 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955
1430 UT Wednesday HLR 7265-CUSB
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v

** U S A. 9475, June 28 at 0545, WTWW-1 is still on day frequency! PPPP is now poorly propagating, vs blasting in daytime, talking about ``raping trailer trash girls``; no signal on 5830. Probably stayed on 9475 all night after Ted neglected to make the switch circa 0200; meant to check during night wakeups, but missed. 9475 next noted at 1338, while it`s not supposed to start until 1400. 5085, WTWW-2 was on earlier with ham stuff, but now at 0549 some hum is louder than Ted; wiggle that patchcord (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15650-15670, June 29 at 1324, modulation spike spurs from and // 15825 WWCR-1 which is getting a sporadic-E boost (but not into VHF). Another search for a match on the hi side finds same but slightly weaker around 15980-15990. These are at roughly equal separations: 155-175 kHz on the lo side, 155-165 kHz on hi side, say plus and minus 160 kHz peaks (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** U S A. 1290, June 29 at 1224 UT, ad for Razorback Camper Sales in Hot Springs AR, making 1.7 Hz SAH with KWFS, Wichita Falls TX, and more or less mutually nullable. Trouble is, there are two AR stations on 1290, neither near Hot Springs --- KDMS El Dorado 2.5 kW at the southern edge of the state next to LA is slightly closer, but 5 kW KUOA Siloam Springs in the NW at the OK border is more likely here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1500, Monday June 29 at 1220 UT, `Amos `n` Andy` from north/south, just about to fade out an hour after sunrise --- apparently the originals rather than the also late Ed Bolton`s recreations which were only on WBCQ? Surely it`s our nearest 1500 to the south, KJIM Sherman TX, nostalgia. Yahoo search for site gets a higher hit to 
Kjim 1500 AM Marriage Counseling Radio
which is phony, but maybe good for some cheap chuckles. Real site is:
where the header of personalities does not include anyone in black-face, and there`s no program schedule; claims to reach 5 megapeople, since edge of daytime coverage extends into The Metroplex (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
