Glenn Hauser logs August 28-29, 2016

** EGYPT. 9315.0, Aug 29 at 0111, S9 R. Cairo amazingly is JBM without any motorboating or spurs! 9964.90, Aug 29 at 0117, S9+10 R. Cairo is JBM with music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 7570, UT Mon Aug 29 from 0100 on WRMI 7570, PCJ Radio International`s `From the Archives of Radio Netherlands, pt 2` starts as scheduled, preëmpting Brother Scare, VG across North America. First docu item dates back to 1950, interviewing Dutch allied soldiers about to go to war in Korea. At 0113, `The Challenge`, from 1996, Eric Beauchemin docu about poverty. 0144, `Earthbeat` interviews Keith in Taiwan about how a crematory there is using the 1000-degree heat all day from its busy ovens to generate electricity, dissatisfying some traditional Taiwanese, tho the corpses being burnt up aren`t directly involved. On to commercials and some music before hourtop, but instead of a second hour of this, WRMI cuts back to Brother Scare at 0200 UT. So now I can watch BrainDead on CBS-TV without recording something (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 105.1, UT Monday August 29 at 0055 UT on KOSB 105.1, Perry, yes, Triple Play Sports Radio is still doing an oldies music show Sunday evenings, about to wrap up 2-hour program, and presumably also on 1020 KOKP Perry, 1580 KOKB Blackwell (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, Aug 29 at 0106, JBA carrier from R. Chaski until autocutoff at 0105:40.5*, which is 19.5 second later than last timing one trinite ago, Aug 26 until 0105:21*, still averaging 6.5 seconds later per 24 hours (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UGANDA [non]. 15240-, Sunday August 28 at 1611, R. Munansi via WWRB is already in continuous Luganda(?) lo-fi talk, no nice African music today. Listening on the PL-880 portable with whip antenna only, it is adequate at first, but 1623 fades out completely, 1629 up a bit, 1632 better briefly. Really too close to WWRB for solid F2 daytime reception, but some unreliable sporadic E in between can improve it; of no use to Ugandans (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1840 monitoring: confirmed Sunday August 28 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9329.957v-CUSB, fair. Also confirmed UT Monday Aug 29 at 0030 on WRMI, 7730, S9+20. Also confirmed UT Monday Aug 29 from 0301 on Area 51 webcast, and until 0330:30 on WBCQ 5129.860-AM, S9+20. Also confirmed UT Monday Aug 29 at 0330 on WRMI, 9955, S9+10 over pulse jamming: tnx a lot, Arnie! Next:

Wed 1315.5 WRMI 9955 to SSE

** U S A. 12105, Aug 29 at 0119, WTWW-3 must be source of JBA carrier, unknown if modulated or not, while 9475, WTWW-1 is still inbooming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1030, Aug 29 at 0132 UT, dominant signal plugs a Sept 13 event at the Botanical Garden of the Ozarx, but never says where it is. We`re supposed to know this has to be Fayetteville AR, or rather CoL Farmington`s KFAY, 6/1 kW U4. Maybe still on day power? Official FCC sunset in August is 0115 UT (September: 0030 UT). Major lobe both day and night goes southwest, but maybe enough to the west on day pattern. S9+20 before it fades; next PSA from CDC about mosquitoes (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
