Glenn Hauser logs September 25-26, 2015

** BRAZIL. 11856.29, Sept 26 at 0130, R. Aparecida, Brazuguese still further off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 890, Sept 26 at 0145, Cuban music dominant over WLS without really trying; same on // 4765 but about one second delayed after 890. Also synch on much weaker // 900. R. Progreso 890 listed as in Chambas, Ciego de Ávila with 200 kW power, matched only by Rebeldes on 710 and 1180 (each of which also with multiple weaker synchros around the Greatest of the Antilles to block the wicked worms). Attention: it is NOT spelt ``Progresso`` --- no double-S`s in Spanish unless proper name derived from e.g. Italian (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 5025, Sept 26 at 0137, R. Rebelde is OFF! Leaving a JBA carrier on 5024.9, presumably R. Quillabamba, PERU, as measured by both Thomas Nilsson in Sweden, and Pedro F Arrunátegui, Perú in June on 5024.92. I don`t see how RQ puts up with the QubaRM in South America. 4765 R. Progreso is still on. Recheck 0627 Sept 26, Rebelde is back (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** INDONESIA [and non]. 4750-, Sept 26 at 1240, RRI Makassar, Sulawesi, with songs but no respite today from LAH 4750.0 QRM de Bangladesh or China. Also find Asian carriers on 4800, 4870, 4895, 4920, 4970, 5010, 5040, 5050. And as always much bigger signals from 4940 China, 4835 Australia (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN. 774 & 594, Sept 26 at 1213, again today, JBA TP carriers looping NW/SE, no doubt from the NHK superpowers (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 760, Sept 26 at 1222, again this morning I am hearing nostalgic music, Spanish ID for ``760`` and a two-word? name I can`t copy, into honky-tonk piano and big band tune. Overcomes gospel huxter on KCCV at 1226, then  reversed at 1227. Possibly XENY Radio Geny in Nogales, Sonora which I have heard before, but also suspect Antena Musical in Chihuahua2, XEES. Assuming same programming as on FM 102.5,
it`s merely unspecified Musical at 6-7:30 am Sat, 6-8 am Sun, but M-F it`s News starting at 6 am, and I also had NOS music at this time yesterday, Friday. How about XENY Nogales? Its website
shows unspecified La Mejor Música at 5-7 am (weekdays?), which one  doubts would apply to foreign/nitch US big band music. Quite a roster gallery of locutores = DJs and/or newspersons (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925.14, approx., Sept 26 at 0114, very poor pirate music on AM, presumed usual Liquid Radio on signature off-frequency, but never strong enough here to ID directly (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-USB, Sept 26 at 0113, pirate music at S9+15; 0122 Dick Weed of Radio Free What-ever, back-announcing several tunes and open for requests (Glenn Hauser, oK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1120, Sept 25 before and after 1900 UT, no break for ID or any announcement from the Catoosa/Sperry/Tulsa station known to FCC as KETU, but last heard IDing many months ago with its former call KEOR. I continue to check this sporadically in daytime mostly on caradio, with sufficient signal, but still NEVER hear any announcements whatsoever, let alone commercials or IDs, just continuous Mexican music. I have yet to dedicate 60+ minutes to constant listening, however to be absolutely sure it is anything but a jukebox, earning nothing while burning electrical fluid and occupying bandwidth (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non non]. 7355, Sept 26 at 0628, Brother Scare is VG on new frequency. Ivo Ivanov says it`s WHRI at 06-08 M-F, but this is Saturday. Is this on his own schedule?
Of course not! Also with lite squeal: WHRI better watch out, as a transmitter modulation card may be failing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1792 monitoring: confirmed Friday Sept 25 at 2130 on WRMI 15770; and after a semiminute music fill, from 2130.5 on WRMI 7570. Also confirmed at 2330 on WRMI 5850 (Fridays, not Thursdays). Next:
Sat 1930v  WA0RCR 1860-AM ND?
Sun 0315v  WA0RCR 1860-AM ND?
Sun 2300   WRMI 11580 to NE
Mon 0300v  WBCQ 5110v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0330   WRMI 9955 to SSE
Tue 1100   WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 1315   WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 2100   WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Full schedule:

** U S A. 7490-AM & 5109.7-CUSB, UT Sat Sept 26 at 0117, I catch the last part of `Allan Weiner Worldwide` on WBCQs. Says he got a terrible electric shock last week, from 4 kV DC as he was working on backup transmitter, and was pushing on a cap he thought had been discharged; still painful. Going thru e-mail, thanking contributors, says he`s against same-sex marriage, then praying a benedixion, finishing at 0135, to music on 7490, presumably during BS, while 5109.7 stays on a while longer with OC. 9330 was not on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1060, Sept 26 at 0148 UT, ranchera music, WSW/ENE, 0151 UT segué romantic tune, 0154 UT another segué and I can`t hang around for any ToH ID. No LAH, and not XERDO from the south, whence we do get a weak LAH. No Mexicans fit direxion, so presume it be KXPL El Paso TX, which is *so* Mexican that Cantú pulled it across the frontera for his list last Feb before he vanished it, as a 10 kW daytimer, ``RADIO NET 1060``. This year`s NRC AM Log denominates it ``Radio El Paso-Juárez, con su música``. BUT --- official FCC September sunset for KXPL is: 0115 UT (October: 0030 UT). NRC says it does have a 500-w PSRA allowing it to start at 6 am local when that is before official sunrise (Sept: 1245 UT; Oct: 1315 UT). Anyhow, glad that KIJN is kaput, no longer in the way (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6131.5, Sept 26 at 0117, RTTY INTRUDER is still here, and even worse at 0630 recheck. Would someone please identify this? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
