Glenn Hauser logs August 25-26-27, 2016

** EGYPT. 9290-9300-9306-9312, Aug 27 at 0257, approx. range of motorboating spurs from 9315.0 R. Cairo transmitter, which is S7 , but the spurs are more like S1, the peak being at 9306, but constantly shifting. This time there is nothing on the hi side of 9315. Some poor SSB station is trying to communicate amid this mess on 9300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9420, Aug 27 at 0256, S8 dead air from VOG, maybe pausing before re-sign-on for 0300 morning broadcast? Not on 9935. Did not get around to rechecking after 0300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7254.923, Aug 27 at 0557, VON is back on today, but just barely audible drumming (talking drums? What are they saying?) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 7489.964 approx., Thu Aug 25 at 2333, WBCQ with `Broad Spectrum Radio`. James Branum had tipped us that this week he would be airing one of his sporadic KG5JST DX Radio Reports:

``Hi Glenn, Passing this on...

15 minute program, with extended written notes online - Airing tonight on WBCQ at 2330 UT [Aug 25, 7490] and in Oklahoma on KTLR 890 am at 11 am CDT/1600 UT [Friday Aug 26].

Also a few BSR programming notes for September and onward:

KTLR - 15 minute Shalom in OKC show (which is magazine format) on Fridays 11-11 am [sic] CDT, then 30 minutes Mennonite radio followed by 30 minutes BSR Magazine on Sundays 8-9 am CDT (1300-1400 UT) [890]

WBCQ - Most weeks will be 30 minute BSR Magazine show at 2330 UT Thursdays [7490]

WINB - Most weeks will be 30 minute Mennonite Radio 0330 UT on Saturdays. [not this week: see my WINB log][9265]

Channel 292 - Right now it is 30 minute BSR Magazine show/30 minute Mennonite Radio, airing at several time slots, but this will probably change soon as I have some longer length programs that are needing to be aired. Times may change soon. [6070, Germany]

Unique Radio 3210 - Starting in September it will be likely be 30 minutes BSR Magazine, 30 Minutes Mennonite Radio, and 2 hours of either music and/or longer-length shows [NSW 3210]

Sonador Radio - 24/7 Micro/Part 15 AM station will start in September airing to Sonador neighborhood of far west Northwest OKC. It possibly will be streaming online as well if I can work out cost of music licensing. The plan is to air a mix of old BSR Programs, music and other content. On Sonador Radio, I haven't picked a frequency yet, as I need to check day and night for ideal frequencies. I'll let you know in the next few days what I end up with. James

Sonador is in ZIP 73013, really Edmond; some part of it axually in OKC, it seems, ZIP 73012.

On 7490 from 2330 Thu Aug 25, he was going thru his DX logs, mostly but not exclusively SW, as in the script. Some other topic about 2345 so I thought that was over, but before 2400 he was reading some more logs (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15120, Fri Aug 26 at 1650, VOA in Luso-Portuguese for weekly 1630 call-in about ANGOLA. 15120 is Greenville, 250 kW, 94 degrees, same parameters as for 2130-2200 M-F Bambara on 15120. Modulation rather distorted and splattering, S9+20 to 30, off at 1700*, why? HFCC shows there is another half-hour of this on Fridays only via GB on 17700. Also the first semihour via VATICAN, violating Separation of Church & State, on 17655. Also on 13630 via SAO TOME on Fri only, but 13630 continues daily 1700-1800 in Portuguese via BOTSWANA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7489.95, UT Sat Aug 27 at 0035, WBCQ with `Allan Weiner Worldwide` in progress about a new campaign to raise $500,000 in the next 6 months with 7 goals, going into quite a bit of detail including ``more Glenn Hauser`` mentioned a couple of times (hmmm), and fortunately now summarized on the website – make that eight:

``WBCQ $500,000 fund drive

WBCQ needs to raise $500,000 to keep going to provide the world`s only truly free speech radio service. Our goals for the funding are:

1. Repair, replace, and upgrade our transmitting equipment
2. Upgrade all our antenna systems for higher power
3. Upgrade studios and computer systems
4. Finish our backup generator system
5. Create a fund to pay for more free speech alternative programming
6. Providing airtime for persons who cannot afford to purchase airtime
7. Create a free radio news service for true, unbiased news for the world
8. Improve the website, streaming, and video services

Much more needs to be done. Shortwave radio is the only true worldwide open voice with no infrastructure required.

Fees for airtime do not cover operation costs at present. We need your help through donations to progress further, survive into the future, and get more voices on the air. Please contribute whatever you can. Thank you and God bless, Allan H. Weiner``

Said was also on 5130 and 3250 --- nothing audible here around 3250, but 5129.87 or so detectable. Later on thru 0100 hourtop, girlfriend Pam ukuleled and sang some songs live (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sat Aug 27 at 0313, WTWW-3 is on with rock music at S9+30, plus the inevitable JBA spur carriers on 5072.1 and 5097.9. You never know when Ted will decide to turn on the transmitter and play DJ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9605, Aug 27 at 0254 check, WHRI is still on here with gospel-huxtering in English, rather than on 7315 where Angel 1 is supposed to be after the 01-02 Korea relay, per WHRI`s own schedule. After 0300 same transmitter does come up on 6175 for Vietnam relays, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** U S A. 9265, UT Sat Aug 27 at 0330, WINB ID and into a rock music show, only S8 and not enough to overcome noise level. This is when Broad Spectrum Radio was supposed to appear according to James Branum (see OKLAHOMA [and non]). WINB online schedule is relatively recently updated, Aug 14, but still out of date. Instead shows Mennonite Radio from BSR on Saturday nights = UT Sunday at 0230 (and BTW, DigiDX UT Sat at 0230). Furthermore, still shows Unique Radio from Aussie Tim at 0300 UT Friday, rather than 1100 UT Saturday, a change Tim has already publicized, starting today, but I snoozed as usual that early. Also shows The Overcomer at 17-19 UT Mon/Tue/Wed only, why? Not on until *1900 Thu & Fri with other programming. Here despite being close to azimuth from Red Lion, WINB is never a bigsig at any hour, third-rate at best, unlike WRMI, WBCQ, WWCR, WTWW, WWRB, WHRI. I guess they must have fitting lowest rates attracting non-religious clients (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 880-USB plus carrier, Aug 27 at 0325 UT, ads for Window Rock, Tse Bonito, football talk in English, i.e. KHAC AZ/NM. Altho KRVN NE can be minimized by nulling, KHAC`s lack of any LSB makes monitoring on USB essential. If one wanted to hear KRVN or anything else on 880, LSB is the way to go, as long as KHAC is obviously running 10 kW ND day power at night instead of 430 watts. Think of how we could double occupancy of the MW band if everystation had to be USB or LSB only! Oh, that would also require switchable receivers, not in common usage (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 920, UT Sat Aug 27 at 0323 UT, football talk show seems to be called ``The Binge``, or is it station slogan? Anyhow, it`s surely KARN Little Rock AR again, not on its licensed night pattern, circle tangent to southwest, but putting dominant signal here to the WNW. New NRC AM Log says slogan is ``The Sports Animal``. It seems the ``HSFB`` = high-school football season is underway, predominantly on Friday nights encouraging many stations to violate their night power and/or  patterns, to the delight of DX station-counters --- but KARN seems to be doing this all the time, suspected on 5 kW ND. It was once a major LR station, KARK, flagship of the Arkansas Radio Network, and progenitor of channel 4 TV (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1290, Aug 27 at 0602 UT, immediately upon tune-in, ID as ``Oldies 1290 and 102.7, WIRL`` --- the slogan given in the new NRC AM Log, starting ``Good Time Oldies ---`` for this Peoria IL station. 102.7 is really translator W274BM. I was looking for WOMP Bellaire OH, off frequency at 1289.71, as KAZ in IL had reported a few hours earlier, but not traced here: that`s listed in NRC AM Log as 1000/33 watts ND (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VIETNAM [non]. 12005, Aug 27 at 0247, VOV in English but now VP signal via Woofferton. Same 250 kW, 282 azimuth as at 0100 when it`s usually better, but reception varies widely from night to night. Still not on 6175 as they think in Hanoi. But

6175, Aug 27 at 0309, VOV in Spanish now here via WHRI, having switched from 12005 Woofferton at 0300. ACI splash from 6180 Brasil. English to follow at 0330 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6946.60, Aug 27 at 0251, the mostly open carrier with occasional RTTY bursts is now running a continuous loud tone (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7692.0-USB, Aug 27 at 0300, colloquial Spanish 2-way discussing vuelos (flights), airports mentioned including Harlingen, Houston, Xalapa; also refers to ``el negrito`` and ``el negro``, casual Mexican racism? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
