Glenn Hauser logs January 24, 2017

** AUSTRIA. 5970, Jan 24 at 0233, choral singing at S7-S9, 0237 M&W talking about Pakistan. It`s AWR in Punjabi, due east from Moosbrunn, 0230-0300 following 0200-0230 Urdu (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 6754-USB, Jan 24 at 0213 check, CHR, Trenton Military is still stuck, at least the FOURTH DAY IN A ROW, with ``No report received``, looping from Halifax, Shearwater, Greenwood, Gander. 

15034-USB, Jan 24 at 1521, ditto here with good signal; no signal at previous 1449 check. 

Where are Shearwater, Greenwood, Abbottsford, Comox, Cold Lake, among the lesser-known aerodromes? Shearwater is on the eastern side of Halifax Harbour, NS. I don`t find Greenwood on a Rand McNally map or index, but coördinates put in somewhere near Wolfville on the opposite north coast of NS, NW of Halifax. Abbotsford (note spelling) is near Vancouver BC, but not on my map. Comox is about halfway up the east coast of Vancouver Island. Cold Lake is in northern Alberta, NE of Edmonton, on the Sask border N of biprovincial Lloydminster (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** CUBA. 5025 & 4765, Jan 24 at 0303, both Rebelde and Progreso are OFF; 5040 RHC still on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7405, Jan 24 at 0224, here`s Martin K. Elliott with his Yahweh screeds, S7 with ACI from 7410 Romania, so LSB tuning is better. Still on at 0301. I suppose depending on MUF he uses this rather than 5792/5790. Someone recently heard him ID again as ``Station YHWH``, so no longer need to put that in brackets.

BTW, Mon Jan 23 at 2200, I noticed WBCQ talking about ``Yawah`` rather than ``Yahweh``, but it`s still YHWH, i.e. the `Remnant Ministry` program sponsored by `Financial Survival`, following its own hour on same (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1861 monitoring: confirmed UT Tuesday January 24 at 0030 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB, JBA. Also on WRMI 7730 at S9+30 but undermodulated. Next:
Tue 2130   WRMI 15770 to NE
Tue 2300   WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 0030   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Wed 1030   WRMI 5850 to NW, 6855 to WNW
Wed 1415.5 WRMI 9955 to SSE, 6855 to WNW
Wed 2200   WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Thu 0030   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW

** U S A. 5129.8-AM, Jan 24 at 0031, this WBCQ is BSing at S9+20; 7490 with other programming is lesser at S9+10, and 9330 with WOR is JBA --- the upper two frequencies generally become unusable as the evening progresses; and the lower, if on and propagating, faces increasing noise levels depending on storm positioning. As of 1700 UT Jan 24, the online WBCQ Program Guide still hasn`t been updated to show all the additional BS hours (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505v, Jan 24 at 0222, WRNO is on, YL gospel huxter at S8-S9 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12105, Jan 24 at 0259-0302+, dead air at S5, no doubt WTWW-3 still on and propagating; while 9475, WTWW-1 is S9+15, and 5085, WTWW-2 is S9+35 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15555-USB, Jan 24 at 1731, WJHR is barely audible, but this dead gospel huxter confirmed still active (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** YEMEN [non]. 11860, Jan 24 at 1427 and still 1441, Republic of Yemen Radio (via SAUDI ARABIA?) is VG with music at S9+10, but marred by IADs every few seconds (intermittent audio dropouts) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 840, Jan 24 at 0215 UT, I`m trying to get an ID for the Spanish religious station previously heard, but reception tonight is not so good. WHAS can be almost nulled with the DX-398, and occasional peaks of the Spanish station, but heavy IBOC noise from 830 WCCO, unlike last time with no IBOC or auroral conditions weakening CCO; even tho it`s worse on the hi side of 840, I still hear the noise using LSB tuning. And of course that does not null at the same angle as WHAS. There is also some other CCI music, probably Cuba. That or WHAS is making a SAH of about 5 Hz. 

Initially 0215 UT heard mentioning ``palabra de dios``. Another peak at 0248 UT, taking oración requests for ``protección divina``; lots of names mentioned, but no locational references. (As if some nonentity individuals need help from some radio station to get a DXing God`s attention!) Fades again including past 0300 UT hourtop when I quit for now; in fact, I wonder if it has signed off. Prime suspect remains KVJY Pharr TX in format flip. Perhaps an RGV DXer could clarify this, Steve (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11630, Jan 24 at 1442, talk in SW or S Asian language, VG at S9+10/20. Something new, as not noticed here before.

Radio Kuwait has been completely silent on SW for a couple years, but was recently reported to be getting its transmitters refurbished. And has continued to make imaginary HFCC registrations including this:
``11630 1015 1600 47,48,52 KBD 250 230 12 207 1234567 301016 260317 D 11635 Ara KWT RKW MOI 3022`` (11635 is a data entry number, not a frequency reference).

Ivo Ivanov also dredged up the A-15 Kuwaiti schedule which included:
``1015-1600 11630 KBD 250 kW / 230 deg CeAf Arabic Holy Qur'an Sce``

Perhaps this led Mark Coady, ODXA to log this as Radio Kuwait, without an ID: ``11630 KUWAIT Radio Kuwait at 1439 in Arabic with a man interviewing a woman then a music bridge at 1441 and back to the interview with mentions of "Iraq" and "Iraqi" – Fair Jan 22 Coady-ON``

I`m not so sure yet that it`s really R. Kuwait on 11630, and it certainly did not sound like Arabic to me, and even more certainly, not Qur`an. If it is back here, many of its other frequencies may also have resumed.

The only other station listed on 11630 anywhen is CNR17 in Kazakh, but not at this hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15300, Tue Jan 24 at 1448, open carrier/dead air at S9-S7, still so at 1518. I have logged YHWH here around 21 UT; otherwise France is the only 15300 station, but not scheduled at this hour; except for VOA São Tomé, 14-15 Sat/Sun only in Kirundi. Maybe that or some other IBB site testing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
