Glenn Hauser logs January 27, 2018

** ANGUILLA. 6090, Jan 27 at 0614 no signal from CB; nor 11775, Jan 27 at 1522. Have they gone back into hibernation? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. ND Beacon: 362 kHz, Jan 27 at 0633, SB, from Sudbury, Ontario. Did not note it with a dash, but I suppose so being Canadian (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also USA 347 kHz

** CUBA. 15643, 15575, 15506, 15438, 15303, 15236, 15170, 15103, 15036, Jan 27 at 1439, approx. centres of horrible RHC-FM spurblobs today, reactivated after absence yesterday while source 15370-AM continued as usual; and still with the F# above Cm continuous tone. Average intervals about 63-67 kHz, pace CHR, KBS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11830 & 11850, Jan 27 at 1523, RHC parasites at S9-S7 during open carriers out of source 11840 which is S9+20. Only 11840 appears on schedules, at 12-15 to N/C/S America - meaning non-direxional? And 23-06 to Chile. Still modulating are 11760 and 9535. I usually hear 11830 & 11850 in the evenings and suspected the morning 11840 was a different transmitter, certainly different antenna (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also JAPAN [non]

** JAPAN [non]. 6165, Jan 27 at 0610, poor S9+ YL in non-Spanish, must be Arabic this semihour from NHK World as scheduled via FRANCE. This was in an RHC check, which seems to be AWOL from this frequency, not just undermodulated; still there on non // 6000 S9+20/30 undermod, 6060 louder, and 6100 S9+30 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH AFRICA. 7285, Jan 27 at 0459, can-can music, i.e. ``Gaîté Parisienne``, not from France but Sonder Grense; maybe this is their rise-&-shine signal? 0501 into Afrikaans news. Unlike BBC/UAE earlier, this good 7285 signal is not perceptibly off-frequency. Has just moved up from 3320 overnight, which is always audible here, sometimes fairly well (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. ND Beacon: 347 kHz, Jan 27 at 0629, AFK, from Nebraska City NE; QRM from much stronger 350 RG, which is Gally, Oklahoma City, in red as William Hepburn says it is ``back on``; when was it off? Everybody knows where OKC is, in the middle of its state, but NE City? Directly S of Omaha halfway to Kansas, near the Missouri River; with pop. of only 7+K, it`s relatively insignificant (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) see also CANADA 362 kHz

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1914 monitoring: Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria reports: ``GERMANY, Reception of World of Radio via HLR on 6190 CUSB, Jan 27:
0730-0800 6190 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg CeEu English Sat, fair signal``

It seems Ivo never reports the next broadcast on same at 1531. I try UTwente, and hear the Chinese stations, possibly a trace of me in the mix at 1536; recheck 1558, B-B-C- chimes directly block 6190, opening Farsi(?) but off at 1600 after a mistaken transmission, leaving a weak timesignal from algo.. 

Axually, BBCWS in English is scheduled to start on 6190 at 1600 via South Africa, but I`ve never noticed it before. BBC Farsi is supposed to be on 6195 from 1600 NNW via OMAN, which is probably what I heard, and indeed there was then heavy ACI to 6190 but I did not check from where and what. From Feb 1, BBC 6195 is registered to start an hour earlier at *1500, which means more QRM for Media Network Plus and WORLD OF RADIO.

But Alan Gale in England at a better further skip distance from Göhren, reports: ``Hi Glenn, No problem hearing World of Radio on 6190 kHz CUSB this afternoon, even with the accompanying music programme in the background.. It was audible right up to 1558z, when another station joined in with its Interval Signal. Short mp3 file is attached. 73 for now, Alan``. Next:

Full WOR schedule via all media, podcast access:

** U S A. 9330v-CUSB, Jan 25-26-27 at random daytime chex, no more signs of WBCQ testing here since last heard with Brother Scare, Jan 24 at 2123 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5850, UT Sat Jan 27 at 0154, WRMI with `IBC Radio` concluding some DX news, into digital segment in MFSK32. 

This 01-02 block on 5850 continues to be unaccounted for in WRMI sked grids.. In the frequency version, XMTR 12 5850 at 01-02 is shown for only three days a week: ``System G VORW-Fri, Jazz-Sat, Xmas-Mon``, but this is Sat and it`s not jazz. The program version completely omits this frequency-hour, but does show IBC on two other Systems at same time! System D on 5950 and 11580-sic, nominally replaced by 7780; and unnamed System but color-coded as H, on 9395 & 9495. Unfortunately I do not check whether IBC is on the other four frequencies, since 5850 as lowest and on the 315 azimuth is by far the best here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395 // 9455, Sat Jan 27 at 1528, WRMI Oldies music, but can`t hear third // 7780, unless imagination-level JBA carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, Jan 27 at 0614, no signal from WTWW-2. Come to think of it, have not heard at all past week in random chex early and late evening, tho might have missed it. 9930 continues to be unheard when it used to be on in afternoons, including Sat Jan 27 at 1920 when `Theater Organ in the Ozarx` used to emit itself. Will it be back after 0200 UT Sun for TOITO on 5085?

5830, Jan 27 at 1527, WTWW-1 SFAW night frequency is still on at S9+20/30, checked after 9475 found vacant (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17774.985, Jan 27 at 1922, KVOH is ON! On a Saturday! Sermon in English, S9+20 and the OSOB (since 17640 MWV skips this hour). New program grid at
shows 17775 now with English at 16-20 UT Saturdays including `AWR Wavescan` at 1630, everything else religious. The sked says Revised 5 Nov 2017, but surely today is the first date for the new Saturday schedule; and there is no longer any English on Thursday or Friday afternoons (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** U S A. 9265, Sat Jan 27 at 1529, WINB is already on with praise song, undermodulated S9+10. New program schedule dated Jan 21 at 
shows Saturday from *1430, Sunday from *1200, weekdays from *2030, and final programs start at 0300, 0330 or 0400, unclear whether all are one quarter, one half, or full hour long with nothing to follow them (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15054.50-USB, Jan 27 at 1443, 2-way in Spanish, same guys as yesterday, today with expletive right away, `puta madre`, politely = whoreson (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15160+, Jan 27 at 1926, S4-S6 open carrier, from what? As I am measuring it a few Hz on hi side, goes off at 1928*. Maybe one of those IBB warmups-on-adjacent-frequency? But nothing sked from IBB nearby from 1930, nor anything else. Leaves a JBA carrier about 15160.22, probably local device (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
