Glenn Hauser logs September 16-17, 2016

** BOLIVIA. 5952.48, Sept 17 at 0057, JBA carrier, so R. Pio Doce is there, having been missing for a while (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 17640, Sept 16 at 1818, no signal from MWV/APR. However, I finally got a report of both this and 9570 Russian service being on air at same time, Sept 9 at 1830, per Thorsten Hallmann, Germany. But it must still be quite sporadic. 

9600, Sept 17 at 0046, no signal from the `KNLS` English hour via MWV. BTW, Carl Mann tells me about the DX talks he produced for KNLS years ago, and maybe appearing sporadically via MWV, in forthcoming DXLD 16-37 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 594, that mystery carrier around here, masquerading as the megawatt from Kolkata, I am continuing my search for its source. Sept 16 after 19 UT, since it seems to DF from the south rather than the north, I drive to the south side of Enid, and take Southgate Blvd eastward. I stop every mile to take a DF on the DX-398 --- at intersexions with Streets 30, 42, 54, 66, 78 --- and each time I can tell it`s getting closer to N/S from the original NNW/SSE I had been getting in central and northern Enid. This confirms it is indeed from the south side. Finally at 1942 UT, past Woodring Airport and Koch Nitrogen, when I reach 90th Street, it`s just about due south. That`s enough for today; unfortunately 90 is a dirt road I prefer to avoid, but maybe back when it`s not too dry and not too wet, or approach it from the other side, and/or get some more fixes on it from other angles to triangulate. I`m still getting no signals on 297 or 198 kHz, whence beacons might have been producing harmonic. 594 so far is perhaps only slightly stronger than I am getting it further north (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, Sept 17 at 0058, JBA carrier from R. Chaski as I wait for its auto-cutoff, which happens at 0058:28*. First chance I`ve had to compare it to its latest reset, which was a fortnight ago, Sept 3 until 0058:38*, 10 seconds later than today, so the expected ~6.5 second recession per noctem has not occurred! It should have reached 0100:00* by now. Need to check more often to divine what`s happening (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SRI LANKA. 11905, Sept 17 at 0115:17, 2+1 mis-timesignal ends from SLBC after prélude music, opening Hindi or Bengali, only S2 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** THAILAND. Re my BBC on new 5810, Wolfgang Büschel points out that altho HFCC doesn`t show it, latest Aoki does as having started Sept 9: 
``5810* BBC 1200-1400 1234567 English 250 25 Nakhon Sawan THA a16`` 
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) * means jammed by the ChiCom

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1843 monitoring: confirmed Friday September 16 at 2130.5 on WRMI, 13695, excellent. Also confirmed Fri Sept 16 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9330.0-CUSB, good S9+10. Next:

** U S A. 7490, Sept 17 at 0004, WBCQ with `Allan Weiner Worldwide`. Politix right away: Allan thinx Democrats are Communists bent on imposing a New World Order, and wants to vote for Trump, hoping his girlfriend isn`t listening and won`t leave him. Says he`s trimulcasting, also on 5130 and 3250. I don`t measure the 7, but the others at 0038: 3250.005 which is synchro with 7490, and 5129.85 which is half a sesquiminute delayed. 3250 is poor in noise level, but stronger than before. 

Program news from Robert at 0111: New `Mitch & Cathy (sp?) Show`, starts Sept 24, Saturdays 8-9 pm EDT [UT Sundays 00-01], on 7490, taking away one of J.P.`s three hours of `Shortwave Saturday Night`, unfortunately: maybe will put him on 3250 instead. At 0102 I note that 9330 is off after Blalock, rather than joining AWWW or playing back a previous one. The `Reverb Madness` show has stopped, as the producer was not getting any response, was Thursdays 8-9 pm on 7490 [UT Fridays 00-01]. Allan`s benedixion at 0117, and ending at 0123, back to BS on 7490. Then I check 3250v again and there seem to be two carriers, around 3250.02 and 3250.75 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9275, Sept 16 at 1818, there it is, WMLK indeed back on the air, poor signal checked only on the PL-880, but sure sounds like EJOM, deceased. (Neighbor 9265 WINB is not on air this early: 9265 is still shown on WMLK webpage as its frequency!) So that explains the unID open carrier I was getting as early as 1300 today. They have been posting on their Facebook about repair progress, but now it is inaccessible (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505v, Sept 17 at 0055, WRNO not only is on tonight, but on earlier than nominal 0100, gospel huxter at S9+25 but undermodulated. Another check at 0112, g.h. is saying ``we`re in a brand new year, 2,014``; with BFO engaged, I discover at 0113 it suddenly starting to take off, driftin downward to about 7504.90 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11521.10-USB, Sept 17 at 0050, weak 2-way colloquial Spanish INTRUDERS, way too close to 11520-AM WEWN English --- unless they are trying to hide in its splash, yet able to hear each other (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
