Glenn Hauser logs June 27-28, 2016

** ALASKA. 11765, June 28 at 1450, choral gospel music, S9+10 with splash from 11760 RHC. HFCC shows English hours at 14-15 on 11765 both from CRI via Urumqi and from KNLS Anchor Point, but I assume the latter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ALBANIA. 9854.972, June 28 at *0120, R. Tirana comes on, still with big humroar atop interval signal; 0140 check, program audio is so buried it`s unreadable. Radio Tirana desperately needs to do something about this; there is no point in continuing to transmit until this defect be repaired. I`m sure a few relays via e.g. German or US transmitters could be arranged at not much cost for a national broadcaster (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** COLOMBIA [and non]. 6010+, June 28 at 0127, two very weak signals very close together, and both slightly on the hi side, presumed The Voice of Thy Conscience, and Brasil`s Rádio Inconfidência (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, June 28 at 0612, RHC English modulation is suptorted, while on // 6165 it`s merely undermodulated. Wiggle that patchcord! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 9900, June 27 at 1335, Japanese talk and music, fair S5-S9. Aoki says Furusato no Kaze at 1330-1400 via Paochung, TAIWAN (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH. 12923-CW, June 28 at 1310, CQ marker DE HLW2, with QSX info, weak and hard to copy, but tnx for all the repetitions.

12916.5-CW, June 28 at 1315, similar CQ marker DE HLF, even weaker. Both these are Soul Radio, per Klingenfuss (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1640, June 27 at 1921 UT check, KZLS Enid/OKC is still OFF. Also still off at 1618 June 28 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 13550, June 27 at 1914, suspicious JBA carrier on the R75, so I subtract 1390 from it and get: 12160: ergo, external mixing product between local KCRC and WWCR. (I don`t really expect this item to be republished, but my log includes local items I need to keep track of. However, it could also serve as an example of what others should be on the lookout for in their own circumstances.) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAIPAN [non?]. 13790.048, June 28 at 0608, JBA signal with talk. Aoki & HFCC show it`s only RFA in Chinese via Agignan Point at 03-07, jammed. But it`s unusual for either one to be so far off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 11700, June 28 at 0114, M&W in SW Asian language, S6. It`s Deewa Radio in Pashto, which had been via SRI LANKA until closed down; now via THAILAND (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1831 monitoring: confirmed Monday June 27 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9329.897-CUSB, fair. Next:
Tue 2130   WRMI 15770 to NE
Tue 2330   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Wed 1315.5 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 2100   WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Wed 2330   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW

** U S A. 9955, June 28 at 1340, the two `Ask WWCR` guys are discussing the NASB meeting in Nashville, cut off with no outro at 1344:30 for WRMI ID and 1345 into FG Radio. Tue 1330-1345 block is supposed to be `Viva Miami`, apparently ceded to WWCR for this report (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** U S A. 12105, June 27 at 1921, WTWW-3 is still off. I think it has not been on at all for a few days now. Maybe finally wore out all the redundant playbacks of Bibling Worldwide? Nominal span had been 17-02 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5050, June 28 at 0105, WWRB is on despite this being a Monday night/UT Tuesday, rather than previous weekend-only schedule. S9+10 signal with gospel huxter wrapping up by giving phone 304-679-3615, which is in West Virginia. Then WWRB canned ID giving its phone 931-728-6087; running late, starting another g.h. at odd time of 0106, hum and awful webfeed audio with artifacts at first, but then clears up somewhat. Mentions live broadcast on Monday June 23[?] of ``Heart & Soul of America Worldwide Broadcast`` with Mark [Marc?] Anthony on WWRB, 5050. But then says is heard Saturday and Sunday nights at 9 pm ET, 8 pm CST [sic], but on live feed right now [really?]. Address P O Box 103, Centreville /spelt/, VA 20122, USA; ``all in lower case`` --- axually e-mail addresses are not case-sensitive, don`t you know, but why ever bother to capitalize them? Or is it or antony --- Still going past 0139 so his show must be more than a semihour. A program by the same title used to be on WBCQ, but no linx there, dead end (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
