Glenn Hauser logs January 20-21, 2017

** CUBA. 17730, Jan 20 at 2235, RHC is open carrier/dead air, still at 2253. Supposed to be in French at this time. 

15370, Jan 20 at 2237, RHC Spanish with correct 5:37 TC, apologizing for ``dificuldades`` preventing `Informativo Nuestra América` but instead a bit of Moncada group music, and ordinary noticias titulares. Rare to hear them apologizing for SNAFUs, but in the studio they don`t know how mixed up the transmitters can be, lest they be apologizing all the time! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6930-USB, Jan 20 at 2246, S8 pirate music, vamping two notes alternating with a lot of percussion, then more melody. By 2256 much louder now hitting S9; 2301 insert ID ``X-L-R-8``, more music. Larry Will in Maryland was also hearing this at 2312, S5 rock/punk music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PHILIPPINES. 9455, Jan 20 at 2255, ``Jesus Saves`` IS and unID language announcements alternating, poor S6 on an abandoned WRMI frequency, so this is FEBC, 100 kW, 280 degrees from Bocaue, 2300-2330 in Iu Mien per Aoki. Time to learn about another tongue only the missionaries care about broadcasting: per EiBi readme.txt, spoken by 400 kilopersons each in Vietnam and S China, a.k.a. merely Mien, abbr`d MIE or [ium] (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1861 monitoring: confirmed Friday January 20 inaugurating a new tri-frequency time, after a Rudy Espinal WRMI ID, at 2230 on 6855 & 5950 at S9, and // 11580 at S9+22. (After 2300 they all split apart: 5950 AWR Spanish, 6855 music, 11580 Viva Miami Spanish). WOR also confirmed UT Saturday Jan 21 after 0030 on WBCQ 9330, fair at S8. Next:

** U S A. 9330v-CUSB, Jan 20 at 1850, WBCQ is still BSing, i.e. The Overcomer, nothing special from the inauguration, as Allan Weiner allegedly had planned; and 7490 is off, altho something was barely audible there a couple hours earlier. At 1945, 9330 is still BS. After 2100, 7490 is on with usual Financial Survival show. 

At 2232, I time 9330 BS running 9 or 10 seconds behind himself on 7780 WRMI; while 7490 is amid usual Friday show, `Behavior Night` of early recorded music, S9+30; and 5130 is not on yet. At 2301, 5129.8-AM is now on with BS, and during this hour, Brother HyStairical is on all three `BCQ transmitters, plus 7490, 9330.06. He is talking about Bush and Blair as if they were still in office, and gives the date as Wednesday October 10. What year would that be? It could have been 2001y or 2007y. Railing against the imminent imposition of a New World Order to be controlled from Germany; yeah, right.

Meanwhile I`ve heard from webmaster Larry Will about added BS hours: 

``Hello Glenn, Brother Stair has once again bought up all the available time on WBCQ. Robert at the station shared with us the revised transmitter schedule for each of the WBCQ services. You can infer from this that Brother Stair will be on these frequencies if that service is not already dedicated to other programming. I'm assuming that the WOR broadcasts on 9330 will continue, though I will follow up with Robert to be sure. I'll get the online schedule updated shortly. Regards, Lw``

And Robert had sent this:

7490, UT Sat Jan 21 at 0106 tune-in to WBCQ for `Allan Weiner Worldwide` and hear acting president Thump`s inaugural address, contracted, as the applause has been edited out (except where it overlaps). Finished at 0117, it`s not AW, but Brad and Valerie filling in this week from the echoey GRITS studio, inviting calls to 1-508-316-3975. They go on to critique the Leader, certainly not what AW himself would have done; no calls yet, so 0123 to a song parodying Trump. 

GRITS` own time is UT Mon 00-01 on 5130v, i.e. vs 60 Minutes on CBS, so we should listen to their podcasts linked via:
Stands for Ghost Riders In The Sky. Now, 5130 is off, and 9330 is Blalocking (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
