Glenn Hauser logs August 23-24, 2015

** AUSTRALIA. 17840, Aug 24 at 0051, the incidental North American service of RA is back on but at poor S3-S4 level, while 15240 is S1. Hope this bodes well for resumption of 9580 after 0900, which inbooms around 1300 if on, but missing past two days (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11815, 11745, 11710, Aug 24 at 0054, crackling spurs are spouting out of the despicable 11780 RNA/RNB transmitter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9513-9560 approx., Aug 24 at 0049, spurious noise field out of 9535 RHC transmitter, and this time can hear some of the same noise mixing with fundamental modulation (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EGYPT. 9965 at 0047, 9315 at 0051, 12070 & 11935 at 0053 Aug 24, no signals on any of the R. Cairo frequencies. The 25m ones might not be propagating, but the 31m should be if on, as Turkey and Romania are making it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6962-USB, Aug 24 at 0113, S9 pirate announcing about the music; it was not there a few minutes earlier in previous bandscan. 0118.5 segué to ``Rocket Man``, now S9+15, and still past 0130. 0140 ``American Pie``. 0144 I find the best USB music sound with NRD-545 tuned to 6961.98, but it seems to read a bit lo so probably really closer to 6961.99. Many more logs of Burn It Down Radio from easterlyners:,23105.0.html

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925.14, Aug 24 at 0115, very poor AM carrier, presumed Liquid Radio again (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-AM, Aug 24 at 0131, another pirate is on, down the dial from 6162-USB. This one is only S7, insufficient copy but better when tuned in SSB mode. Talking about FCC warning --- could this be a live bust?? Appeal dropped. 0133 mentions Montreal radio scene --- aha, it`s the International Radio Report, and breaking for usual local weather segment, then into space weather; 0135 CKUT ID in passing. 0137 mentions on USB altho usually on AM; FM station in an Indian reservation; 0138 music, ID with a address --- not sure if this was from IRR or a break in by the relayer. Many other logs agree:
but identify this signal only as ``International Radio Report relay``, and apparently Sheldon was aware of the relay as others heard it mentioned on the show --- but IRR airs live at 1430 UT Sundays, not now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, Aug 24 at 0046, JBA carrier from R. Chaski also with some pointless intermittent pulse jamming from Cuba; autocutoff at 0106:11.5*, which is a hefty 7 seconds later than last night (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** TURKEY. 9870, Aug 24 at 0111, no signal from VOT Spanish, but it cuts on a few seconds after tune-in. I thought it should be propagating, as 9730 Romania was in well enough. Quickly tune to other VOT Spanish frequency 9770 to hear it cut on at about 0112. Can`t know if momentary interruption or not on at all from scheduled 0100 (and several minutes earlier for IS) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1787 monitoring: Sunday August 23 around 2115 I check the UTwente SDR on the two Italian MW frequencies where WOR has been reported before, 846 and 1386 kHz, but no sign of me to be heard this time. If any Euromonitors hear WOR on either, Sat at 2330 or Sun at 2100, please let us know. WOR 1787 confirmed after 2300 Sunday Aug 23 on WRMI 11580. Also confirmed UT Monday Aug 24 from 0303 on Area 51, sufficient via WBCQ 5110v. Also confirmed UT Monday Aug 24 at 0330, sufficient on WRMI 9955. Last two also 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. 6123.79, Aug 24 at 0042, I notice a spur carrier cutting on and off irregularly, out of bigsig from 6115 WWCR, i.e. +8.79 kHz; does not match the modulation peaks. Checking the lower side, hear somethings similar around 6107.54 and 6107.4 which are not symmetrical. Rather like previous log of parasitix to 5890 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9975, Aug 24 at 0042, no signal from KVOH, but audible at 0110 on 9975.1, poor level S3 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 540, Aug 24 at 0100 UT after some Spanish music, Spanish talk is interrupted for legal ID in English for KDFT Dallas-Fort Worth; 0101 UT, TC for 8 de la noche. This late, I was hoping for something more exotic like much-needed KNMX Las Vegas NM, or an XE. But official FCC August sunset in Ferris TX is 0115 UT; September, 0030 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1060.0, Aug 24 at 0125 UT, soft music in Spanish, roughly E/W which rules out XERDO as does not being off-frequency. Doubt it`s KIJN Farwell TX, which I think has been silent for some time, and was also off-frequency. I see in FCC AM Query that KIJN is still not on the Silent list, nor has it been transformed into DKIJN despite license expiry over a biyear ago. By 0140 UT overtaken by rosary in English, no doubt KRCN Colorado. Other SS listed in last year`s NRC AM Log: KRUZ Van Buren AR, but it too has been silent and really on the list since 4/11/15; KXPL El Paso but it`s supposed to be news-talk (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
