Glenn Hauser logs August 27-28, 2016

** GUINEA. 9650, Aug 27 at 2337, very poor S6 signal and seems undermodulated, in French? presumed still R. Guinée, until carrier cut about 2401:20*. I`ve yet to hear it signing on as early as 0600 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MALAYSIA. Correxion: wrong date was on this log. Should be Aug 25, not Aug 24, fixed:

6050.003 to 6050.008, Aug 25 at 1247, two separate measurements of S3-S5 signal here presumed to be Asyik FM. Can`t get it up to 6050.011 where Wolfy put it the other day. Margin of error, or varies slightly? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1157-1170-1183, Aug 27 at 1859 UT, I notice the IBOC from 50/50 kW KFAQ Tulsa is OFF! Come to think of it, may have been off for a while. Used to be a fight at night with KSL 1147-1160-1173 IBOC. Who knows if this be permanent or temporary; new NRC AM Log, deadline early August, still shows KFAQ as ``I``. This reference last updated 27 July 2016: 
says ``Reported off Feb 2011, but on again as of Oct 2014`` (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 1580, Aug 28 at 0006 UT, KOKB Blackwell must be off. No big signal as there should be this long before sunset, but a mix of weakies, including one with sports talk, but not // 1020 KOKP or 105.1 KOSB. Also in the pileup a musical station. We should check whether Triple Play Sports radio resume a musical sidetrack Sunday at 2300 UT-0100 UT Monday (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 91.7, Sat Aug 27 at 1841 UT on caradio, I find dead air from KOSU, which continues past hourtop until 1905 UT finally reviving for last minute of NPR news and into `The Dinner Party`. But some or all of the excellent 1 pm CT Sat program `RadioLab` was withheld from KOSU listeners! Unknown whether still on KOSN, KOSR, translators, or HD channels. This happens all too frequently at KOSU, over-relying on fallible automation. It`s too much to ask for a genuine human operator to be overhearing it 24/7, preferably in the studio for quick axion rather than remotely (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UGANDA [non]. 15240, Sat Aug 27 circa 1750, signal detected here on R-75, presumed WWRB with Radio Munansi, but in next hour on caradio, despite a memory frequency, no hits, so must be quite weak. What about Sunday 1600-1900? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1840 monitoring: confirmed Sat Aug 27 at 2230 on WBCQ, 9330.049v-CUSB, poor. Also confirmed UT Sunday Aug 28 at 0327 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, good S9+20 but mixing with storm noise level, about 4 minutes into show so started circa 0324 (minus the theme opening nixed). Next:
Sun 2330   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Mon 0030   WRMI 7730 to WNW
Mon 0300v  WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0330   WRMI 9955 to SSE  
Mon 2330   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 1100   WRMI 9955 to SSE
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. 9330-CUSB, Sat Aug 27 at 2344, WBCQ with an `Allan Weiner Worldwide` playback I recognize from a few weeks ago as he is talking about being into photography as a child, developing his 127 film, etc. This repeat is now officially on the schedule at
But the Sat 23-24 hour on 9330 was originally some paid program, forget what, but didn`t last long, accounting for earlying the daily WOR playbacks from 2330 to 2230 on Saturdays only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 13695, Aug 27 at 1757 on BST-1 caradio, memory scan stops on some steel band music, and Morse code frequency ID says 13695, so WRMI. But where`s Brother Scare who is supposed to be on here all day until 2100? Not until 1800 sharp (without any ID), does this switch to the Overcomer theme (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12105, Aug 27 at 2353 check, WTWW-3 is OFF; 9475 WTWW-1 is still on, and WTWW-2 is not on either frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9899-9922, Aug 27 at 2338, approx. range of pulsing, seems like OTH radar rather than usual ute in this area; peaks circa 9913 at S2 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
