Glenn Hauser logs January 14-15, 2017

** BOLIVIA. 5952.453, Jan 15 at 0203, Radio Pio Doce with conversation in Spanish, S9. Wolfgang Büschel a previous night was hearing something Spanish on 5950, not 5952+, and wondered if RPXII had moved, but not tonight. There is also a JBA carrier on 5950.0, not WRMI which now goes off at 0100. 5952+ already off at 0236 recheck (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5040, Sat Jan 14 at 0704, OCDA from RHC, just a bit runover until cutoff at 0704.6*. 24 hours later will it carry Esperanto again? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Glenn: I listened to the WOR broadcast at 2130 UTC on 11580 KHz, Thursday, 1/12/2016. It was an audible signal into central New Jersey. But there were numerous fade outs (approx. 6). The fade outs were extreme but only lasted a few seconds. Best. Charlie.

** GUATEMALA. 4055, UT Sun Jan 15 at 0212 tune-in to dead air, but shortly some really old band music, from a cylinder? TGAV, Radio Verdad is S9+20 which is doing very well for less than a kilowatt. Apparently opening at 0214 `Antena DX` show con Víctor Gutiérrez, presumably still in reruns, mentions part of his schedule, including Saturday 5 pm somewhere; on Radio Cultural; on Radio Verdad; at 1200 UT or 7 am on 9955. First feature is about NHK World Radio Japón, with clip of its IS and sign-on at 0400 on 6195 when that was via Bonaire (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 6145, Jan 15 at 0107, The Mighty KBC with rock music, good at S9+10 via GERMANY; 0122, Pete`s ham news headlines for a minute or sesqui; ~0130 Kim`s beeps. During the hour Jan & Dean and Patty Duke were heard. ``The Mighty KBC`` ID to 0200* immediate cutoff, well-timed (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6949.580-AM, Unidentified, Jan 15 at 0108, pirate rock music at weak S8 vs QRN, listened for a dekaminute without any announcements. No logs of this on hfunderground, but a trihour earlier there was a station in FM on 6950 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 90.1, January 14 at 1400 UT, KUCO-FM, our classical station, not with its own `Performance Oklahoma` produxion, but with WCPE IDs and their own classical service by satellite, which KUCO normally carries only overnight. Maybe threat of icestorms, etc., disrupted the switchover. 1430 UT, however, interrupted and PerfOkla joined in progress, presumably when someone got to the studio (or remote control) to get back on track (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, Jan 15 at 0103, JBA carrier from R. Chaski, until autocutoff at 0105:06*, slippage 46 seconds later than last catch a week ago, Jan 8 until 0104:20*, so averaging 6.57 seconds later per, right on the mark (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 5960, UT Sun Jan 15 at 0237, nice Romanian folk music, French announcement with Romanian accent, S9+10; 0245 on to a talk program about the histoire of Georgie and its relations with Roumanie. This folk music segment is not on Alan Roe`s Music on SW schedule, but he does have the classical music on the RRI Romanian service, 5910 as heard at 0245 UT Sun, S9+10 but talking over something symphonic. Another carrier is detectable underneath making slight SAH, presumably HJDH (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UGANDA [non]. 15240, Sat Jan 14 at 1916 check, VP carrier, presumed all we are getting today from WWRB with Radio Munansi (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1860 monitoring: confirmed on HLR 7265-CUSB, Germany, via UTwente SDR, Sat Jan 14 at 1550, gaining on the CCI vs CRI Hindi, while at first check 1540, nothing of myself to be heard. Ends at 1601, precisely when CRI Russian cuts on much stronger. WOR 1860 not confirmed, but JBA carrier detectable from WBCQ 9330v-CUSB, Sat Jan 14 at 2330. Confirmed UT Sun Jan 15 at 0431 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, S9+30 spelling, therefore 17 minutes into playback, starting about 0414. Next:
Sun 1130   HLR 9485-CUSB to SW
Mon 0030   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Mon 0400v  WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW

Thu 0030   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW

BTW, Jeff White tells me WRMI will resume emitting WOR on Fridays, at new time of 2230 UT on 11580 // 6855 // 5950 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5850 // 7730 // 6855, Sat Jan 14 at 0706 check, all three WRMIs again duplicative, with gospel huxter. `Sounding the Alarm` is scheduled.

BTW, in my previous report compiling the 6855 schedule, the 06-07 UT hour should have been attributed to System D, not B. I hope there were no further errors.

11580, Sat Jan 14 at 2210, the `Your Weekend Show` low-key guy rambling about his concerns, much stronger than // 6855. 7780 is already on with TOM. 9955 with a different gospel huxter about Abraham.

6855, Jan 15 at 0229, WRMI with Radio Ukraine International closing, no ID at 0230, immediately into Radio Prague relay, both in English. Originally and supposedly still on 11580, but inaudible there (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490, Sat Jan 14 at 2204, European Music Radio, 40th anniversary special is airing as publicized on WBCQ, on an hour early today. Good at S9+10 to start on the R75. Seems to be nothing but rock! When I think of ``European Music`` it`s the great classical composers, shux. Recheck on the BSR-1 caradio at 2244, break to acknowledge listeners in Venezuela, Alan Roe, Lou Johnson, Bavaria. Is this live? I would not think so. No BBC QRM audible now, but weakening and fading. Sign-off by 2259 presumably by Tom Taylor, but in a fade, name sounded like Ted something (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9930, Sat Jan 14 at *1859, WTWW-2 cuts on air with pop music in progress. I was getting worried whether the organ show would be another no-show. Distorted canned ID, ``Wichita Lineman``. 1903 ID again and late start to `Theater Organ of the Ozarx`. Pity the modulation distortion, plus hum to mar the music. Also with parasitic spurs about 9917 and 9943. Organist Bob Heil thinx it`s nighttime, and I don`t think he means in Europe. Also ends 3 minutes late at 1933, ID and into `Amateur Radio Newsline`. Toward the end I also checked the webcast, not so distorted:
but one could tell that some of the original recordings were not studio quality; in fact with audience noises in the background as if in a café. 

5085, UT Sun Jan 15 at 0209, WTWW-2 in TOOTO again, S9+30 with talk in the background, also with spurs circa 5072, 5097. Ends at 0234 with a bit of applause, ID and again into Amateur Radio Newsline #2046.

5830, Jan 15 at 0208, WTWW-1 still not on here, nor audible on 9475, but there is a blob of algo circa 9473 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1566, Jan 14 at 1345, I tune in too late for the beam switch from HLAZ, FEBC Jeju, Korea South, but still get a hefty JBA carrier looping NW, and even detectable still at 1357. It must have been even stronger before 1345. I bet my neighbor Richard N Allen near Perry OK had it much better? ``There was a sudden, but brief, barely audible trace on 1566 at local sunrise (1341),`` he reports to IRCA for January 14. A complete 9-kHz bandscan after 1345 found nothing else, not even 1098 Marshalls which RNA had best yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
