Glenn Hauser logs May 21-22, 2017

** BULGARIA. 9400, May 22 at 0234, lo-fi phone caller? about J. C., not // Overcomer 7730 etc., poor, and sounds like some other audio mixing. `End Times Coming` to the Mideast via Secretbrod is now scheduled at 0230-0300; much weaker than 9395 WRMI. ETC is treated as if it were a ``station`` on a par with BBCWS in the UK, on page 497 of the 2017 WRTH, altho inactive at the time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 6754-USB & 15034-USB, May 21 & 22, various chex for ``Trenton Military``, CHR VOLMET find nothing on night or day frequencies. In fact I think I have not noticed them for several days before. Normally off the air from :00 to :10 past the hours, so make sure to check at othertimes.

 6.754 10 , CHR CAN QUINTE WEST TRENTON MILITARY 44 01 56  -77 31 01     2310-1100 Z
15.034 10 , CHR CAN QUINTE WEST TRENTON MILITARY 44 01 56  -77 31 01     1010-2400 Z
BTW, 15034 is the highest frequency on this list for any SW VOLMET.

For example, NOTHING: May 21 at 1311, 1343; (NY Radio is only poorly audible on 10051-USB at 1343 May 21). More nothing from CHR: May 22 at 0225; May 22 at 1148, 1325. Of course, propagation especially on 15 MHz has been pitiful, but at the latter logtime, there was sporadic E boosting 15825 WWCR, and by 1420 MUF has reached 103 MHz. Still no 15034 at 1646. So what has become of CHR? No more can one hear ``no report received`` over & over? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 9700, May 21 at 1253, S6 talk in Chinese, not // much stronger 9680 CNR1 jammer; also a JBA carrier on 9700 at 1356 May 22; this turned out to be CNR16 on new SW frequency. Altho WRTH translates it as Voice of China Country, it`s not about music: ``Rural Voice`` is another version for this station originally on MW 720. Ron Howard forwards this info:

Google translation : Chinese to English
China's rural voice temporarily opened short-wave frequency broadcast.

Due to the launch pad for technical renovation, the Central People's Broadcasting Station China Rural Voice in the wave AM720 in May 17, 2017 02:05 to June 10 02:05 during the temporary shutdown, after the resumption of 10:05 on June 10 In the wave AM720 broadcast. Technical renovation overhaul period, the Chinese village voice program by the two short-wave frequency on behalf of the broadcast, the specific broadcast time:
(Beijing time)          [UT]
 04:55-06:30  9700 kHz  2055-2230
 06:30-19:00 17780 kHz  2230-1100
 19:00-00:05  9700 kHz  1100-1605
A similar situation concerns the 1053 kHz station, Central People's Broadcasting Station Voice of the Elderly, until June 30 on 9620 at night, 17875 daytime. There have been a number of other changes concerning China domestic SW usage (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [and non]. 5995, May 22 at 1144, no signal from the Korean radio war, but noise jamming resumed on 6003, presumably also target Echo of Hope. So moved to 5995 for only a few days, meanwhile impulsing NZ to shift to 6170, where it might as well stay as who knows what the Koreans will do next (tho VOK could also reactivate 6170). At 1149 I check 75m for carriers besides Japan on 3925 & 3945: they are on 3910, 3930, 3985, 3990. Ron Howard agrees:

``Echo of Hope - VOH. What is happening? Were the new frequencies 5995 and 6350 just tests? May 22, at 1039, noted them back on former 6003 (ex 5995) // 6348 (ex 6350), as well as the usual // 3985 // 6250; all were jammed. At 1121 found all four frequencies in the clear, with no white noise jamming; 3985 fair reception; 6003 good; 6250 fair (the best I have ever heard then here!) and 6348 fair. Jamming resumed within a minute or two`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7585, May 22 at 0330, JBA carrier where there is no legal broadcasting. Walt Salmaniw confirms Station YHWH was on here again tonight, his latest favorite frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1020, May 21 at 2201 UT check, KOKP Perry is off the air for at least the second day in a row; and at 1646 UT check May 22, at least third day in a row (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1260, May 22 at 0242 UT tune-by, ``KWSH, Today`s Best Country``, from 1/1 kW U2 Wewoka station, better than I can hear it on daytime groundwave, and likely on ND day pattern instead of night with a notch toward Enid. NRC AM Log had slogan as `The station you grew up with`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non non]. 17815, Sunday May 21 at 1338, Brother Scare is S9 on new frequency of WHRI, ex-21610. Exact hours vary and maybe other gospel huxters here at certain times (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 17855, Sunday May 21 at 1948, no signal from REE`s North American frequency, but JBA carrier on 17715 to elsewhere, and more than that on 15520, 15390 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1878 monitoring: confirmed Sunday May 21 at 2340 the 2330 airing on WBCQ 9330.35v-CUSB, good. Also confirmed UT Monday May 22 at 0300:10 on Area 51 via WBCQ 5129.80-AM, immediately after JL`s ``The show is over, gotta go`` shtick, and no ID. Also confirmed UT Monday May 22 at 0330 on WRMI 9955, good but choppy. 

Expanded RAE relays on WRMI will displace some following airings, but they had not started morning of May 22, so just in case:
Mon 2330   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030   WRMI 7730 to WNW [to be canceled]
Tue 1100   WRMI 9955 to SSE, 9455 to WNW [to be canceled]
Tue 1300   WRMI 11580 to NE [NEW; to be canceled]
Tue 2130   WRMI 15770 to NE, 9455 to WNW
Tue 2330   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Wed 1030   WRMI 5850 to NW, 9455 to WNW
Wed 1315.5 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 2100   WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Wed 2330   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW

** U S A. 9955 // stronger 9455, Monday May 22 at 1138, WRMI with `Antena DX`, greeted by Antonio Buitrago of REE`s media program. So not yet replaced by RAE Argentina ao Mundo in Portuguese. Adrian Korol tells me May 22 is the start date for all the languages via WRMI, so maybe from tomorrow, when WORLD OF RADIO would have aired at 1100 Tuesday. Also RAE French at 1300 on 11580 has not yet started, at 1317 with `Wavescan`, while 9955 also has another WS playback just started at 1315, 15 minutes out of synch. Furthermore, Ukraine relay still after 1330 on 11580 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9455, May 22 at 1322, ``Be My Baby`` on WRMI Oldies, ID by Bob Biermann only for ``9395`` (Glenn Hauser, oK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, May 22 at 1357, KVOH is already on at S9+20 and modulating English to boot with ID and IS? loop, ``This is Strategic Communications Group, Voice of Hope, KVOH, Los Angeles``. Who would guess that a name like S.C.G. is not secular? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 720, UT Monday May 22 at 0255, somestation here is playing music of somesort --- could it possibly be WGN? Yes,  per sked at 9-11 pm CDT Sundays: ``After Hours with Rick Kogan: Chicago photographs, music, clocks and the making of Teddy Roosevelt --- Tonight on the program, Rick Kogan delved into the worlds of music, photography, clocks and history. To begin, publishers Richard Cahan and Michael Williams joined Rick in studio to talk about their new book, "Chicago: Classic Photographs." Then, Ben Montalbano from local band Matthäus joined Rick and producer Lise to debut his band’s brand new song, "To the Years," and talk about his upcoming EP. Jason Matthiesen from the Chicago Clock Company called in to talk about the business’ 100th…

** U S A. 780-CUSB, May 22 at 0253 UT, C&W music with no LSB, which is how KCEG Fountain CO transmits, why? Tuning LSB I hear only WBBM, while on USB they are mixing. As I said concerning KHAC 880, Sept 11, 2014, `` We are wondering if lacking LSB is a defect or deliberate employment of the Kahn Powerside System``. Here`s one thread about it:

** U S A. 1020, UT Monday May 22 at 0249 UT, Spanish sermon dominant from KCKN Roswell NM, obviously high power, 50 kW, and not protecting Pittsburgh, also in the continuing absence of my nearby KOKP Perry OK. Understation has religion in English which fits for KDKA on Sunday night, EDT: ``9p-11p Amplify with Father Ron Lengwin`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1130, May 21 at 2201 UT check, KLEY Wellington KS is off the air for at least the second day in a row; and May 22 at 1646 UT, at least the third day in a row (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1700, May 22 at 0241 UT, KKLF Richardson TX with ``My Heart Is a Ghost Town`` rock song in English, 0243 UT ``al ritmo con – música, Banda 13``, into rock song in Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
