Glenn Hauser logs January 19-20, 2017

** CHINA. 12035, Jan 20 at 0044, Chinese at fair S7 level, which is better than most signals on 25m, including weak RHC and WRMI. HFCC shows this is not a jammer! But CRI, 00-01, 500 kW, 200 degrees from Xian to SE Asia (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, Jan 20 at 0105, R. Chaski, JBA carrier until cutoff at 0105:39.5*, which is 14 seconds later that last check two nights ago, Jan 18 until 0105:25.5*, now averaging 7.0 seconds later per (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. The Overkiller on expanded WBCQ schedules: see USA

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1861 monitoring: confirmed Thu Jan 19 at 2130 on WRMI 11580, good. Since WBCQ has just expanded the Brother Scare hours on 9330, which TOM website vaguely designates as ``24hr Mostly``, I`m a bit concerned that WOR will no longer be appearing at 0030. But UT Fri Jan 20 I can still hear me on 9330.102v-CUSB, poor signal on the R75; at 0045 check on NRD-545, S6-S4 vs noise level of S5. Wolfgang Büschel was also checking various remote receivers in North America, and could not hear 9330! Next:

** U S A. 9330.153v-CUSB, Jan 19 at 2101, WBCQ is unusually on the air at this time, with Brother Scare! I bet he has been on all night and all day as I first noted past 0653. Still BS at 2304 check but faded to very poor level.

Checking the Overcomer website: Altho it still shows all the deleted WRMI frequencies, and among WWCR, on ``3.125``, it now shows for WBCQ:
[columns out of alignment on page, and even more so when copied:]

``WBCQ 7.490 USA

Mon, Tue, Thru [sic], Fri

0000-03002200-2300 [sic]

[it appears these times are based on EDT conversions, not EST!]


9.330 USA Daily 24hr Mostly 24hr Mostly
5.130 USA Daily 24hr Mostly 24hr Mostly``

Yes, 5129.8 WBCQ is also on now at 0046 Jan 20 with BS. Still at 0105, while 9330 is still with Blalock the Blaster during this hour. 

I`m not checking again until 0616, when I find BS still on 9330, but very poor, also 5129.8 VP; and 7490 is still on but with narration about Xmas and other holidays, which I soon recognize as Jean Shepherd! At 0700 WBCQ ID and switch 7490 to TOM. Now at 0700, 9330 is occupied by huge S9+20 signal from Cuban spy numbers as scheduled 4 days a week including Friday, and WBCQ cannot be detected underneath it but probably still on. 

Brief awakening at 1020, so I check again: 5129.8 with BS; nothing audible on 7490; 9330+ with JBA carrier. At 1525, 1539, 9330 is still BS. As of 1725 UT Jan 20, there is nothing on the WBCQ website about these expanded BS hours on all three frequencies!

Allan Weiner had said he and Dr Becker would be broadcasting from the inaugural in Washington ``all day`` Jan 20 on 7490 and 9330. 7490 of course belongs to WWCR until 1600 and WBCQ is registered for 7490 not until 1900.

The ceremonies start circa 1630. So check WBCQ again at 1653: 9330 is still Brother Scare! 7490 is on with a weak signal, music, not live coverage of the inswearing. O well. A few TV networks are covering one of the most disgusting events in American history (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490, UT Fri Jan 20 at 0046, WBCQ with `Broad Spectrum Radio` at S9+25, but fading down before finished. Sounds like Amy Goodman now in an excerpt from `Democracy Now!`, report on commutation of Chelsea Manning`s sentence (so why prolong it until May anyway?). Then James Branum quoting RHC website about commutation of López. JB provided in advance these

``Abbreviated show notes: In this episode…

1. News and Commentary about Obama’s last minute Presidential commutations and pardons, including those of

* Chelsea Manning, the longest held whistleblower in US history
* Óscar López Rivera, Puerto Rican freedom fighter

2. The activist community’s response to the inauguration of President Trump, including this weekend’s protests marches…

3. The moral necessity of ongoing nonviolent resistance…

** U S A. 6855, Fri Jan 20 at quick check 1021, WRMI with Ray Robinson speaking, so must be a Wavescan segment, // much stronger 5850, rather than FG Radio as scheduled. 7730 & 7780 are in BS now. Skedgrid shows System F at 10-11 both on 5850 and 6855, i.e. WORLD OF RADIO Wednesdays at 1030 should also be on both frequencies now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12105, Jan 19 at 2058, NO signal from WTWW-3. Others, 9930 and 9475 are nominal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5122.50-USB, Jan 20 at 0703, weak 2-way in Russian, or maybe Ukrainian (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5755.00, Jan 20 at 0102, JBA carrier. No broadcasters are scheduled here; could it be YHWH? Not on 5792 at the moment, but earlier than he usually starts, and Ron Howard says he had shifted to 5790 when last heard (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
