Glenn Hauser logs June 15-16, 2016

** FRANCE. 13725, June 16 at 0610, RFI English is fair, S7-S9 but just my luck at tune in to discussion of stupid ballgames. Quality of reception varies a lot (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** KURDISTAN [non]. 11600, June 16 at 1219, music and Chinese at S5, no sign of Denge Kurdistanye. Listed R. Taiwan International in Amoy during this hour, which doesn`t get jammed per Aoki; altho Sound of Hope could also be on here relayiing RFA which would draw jamming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7254.944, June 16 at 0620, VON Hausa is S9+10 but undermodulated; at least on the air this time, as frequently AWOL (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 87.76 MHz, June 15 at 2019 UT, I am looking for sporadic E FM DX starting here on channel 6 audio, and pleased to hear a very weak signal in English. On the PL-880 it seems to be more like 87.76, offset plus, than 87.75 even. It`s distorted and hard to copy but eventually hear a weather break concerning Oklahoma City, probably originating from a TV station meterologist. It`s too steady to be Es, anyway. I quickly tune thru FM band on another receiver and find no matches, nor on OKC TV stations. Could it be a mixture with a strong local AM signal? Only three of those, 960, 1390 and 1640, no matches. Could it be cable radiation? No such programming on analog 6 if it still exist. Could there be a FrankenFM in OK? Certainly none known previously. Not a single OK ch 6 of any sort in (and the WTFDA FM database is down). Will have to recheck whether this mystery be audible at any time (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, June 16 at 1128, presumed R. Madang at S4 with some music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, June 16 at 1129, SIBC presumed at S8 with some talk and music, ACI de 5025 Cuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

AND NEW!! NOW tnx to Keith Weston, podcasts via:

BTW, I have been unable to update WOR 1830 linx at
since Angelfire has been down for several hours. But I found this at 
``We are working on upgrading your service. Will be back in a few hours`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1830, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490, June 16 at 0000 on caradio I hear WBCQ with William Tell Overture, so it`s an `Allan Weiner Worldwide` unscheduled playback instead of the listed `Reverb Madness`. Is that gone for good? Unfortunately, I can`t keep listening, since last Friday night, John Carver tells me, 

``Near the end of the show, Allan was reading emails. Said he had one from the guy who helped him build the station. I got the idea the guy was traveling, vacationing or visiting in the SouthWest. Told Allan he'd just bought a SW station. If I recall correctly he said two transmitters and antennas. Allan congratulated him and said the station was the former KGES, at least that's what my ear heard. Any chance it was KJES? Might explain why it's not been heard``

I did not hear that part, and as of June 16, the huge AWWW audio archive still hasn`t extended beyond June 3:

It sounds like this may have been from Scott Becker, and concerning KJES, Vado NM, which did voluntarily close down a couple years ago. I think the transmitter at The Lord`s Ranch was not in good working order, but will be interesting if it can be revived there, or moved somewhere else, to Kiowa or Monticello? Did anyone else hear this with more details? 

BTW, Broad Spectrum Radio, this Thursday June 16 at 23-24 on 7490, if it`s on the air this week, is a special; James Branum says:  

``Dear friends, Broad Spectrum Radio is airing a special episode for Pride 2016, in memory of those killed in Orlando and will be sending out a special full-color QSL card for confirmation of reception of this show. Our contact info can be found at

The program consists of a recording of the "Stand with Orlando vigil" held in OKC, recorded by Serena Blaiz of and followed by some hate-defying joyful music often played at Pride, because sometimes we need to dance in the face of hate and oppression.

The mp3 download of this show can be found at: 

Excerpts of this program will also air this coming weekend on local AM radio station KTLR [890 OKC]``

And Manfred Reiff adds there will be another special airing on Channel 292, Germany, 6070, Friday June 17 at 17 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1830, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395, June 16 at 0607 as I bandscan, SonPower Network via WRMI is starting `TruNews`. I am aghast as Rick Wiles and guest discuss how the Orlando massacre was a ``false-flag operation``, claiming there is NO evidence all those people were really killed, but instead staged by ``that jihadist in the White House`` to further his agenda of Taking Our Guns Away, and imposing martial law before his term is over. WHAT ABSOLUTE CRAP!!! How can anyone justify putting it on the air? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1520, June 16 at 1150 UT, KYND Cypress TX colliding with talker KOKC OKC and making a slow SAH of 22/minute = 0.37 Hz, plugging its website and then some music. Fading out by 1153 UT. After playing nothing but music fill for months following the departure of the ChiCom, it appears KYND have developed a schedule mixing music, talk, sports. To see the schedule you have to watch alternating displays, including this one at the time I was listening: ``Showbiz and Company, M-F 6-9 am``. Lema: ``Great conversations and exciting programming. Your KYND of Talk, Your KYND of Music we are YOUR KYND of Radio. The Powerful 1520``

The ``Reaching You`` link
displays a coverage pattern map including a very minor lobe toward the NNW which we don`t believe (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 3210, June 16 at 1127, JBA carrier. I might have hoped it was Unique Radio, Australia, as ABC NT 2325 and 2485 are strong enough to produce some audio, except per the home page

``Unique Radio is currently relocating to another transmission site and waiting for approval from ACMA. The existing transmission site at Halls Creek has been a challenge and the decision was made to cease transmission from there due to poor reception in much of the area and beyond. Until the new approval from ACMA we will continue online as usual. We are also developing a network of stations across Northern New South Wales and working on new ways to connect including streaming online. Please feel free to contact Aussie Tim today on our 'contact us' link, thankyou. Please Note : We are still online in crystal clear digital at the links below. Listen to us @ (24K AAC) or (64K MP3)
(Click links for audio and then press 'listen'``. Maybe my 3210 is a MW harmonic vestige, 3 x 1070? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 12350, June 16 at 1214, JBA AM carrier. Maybe a mixing product from two adjacent 25mb transmitters, but doesn`t work out for RHC; or harmonic 2 x 6175? The WCY net should start at 1230 but on USB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
