Glenn Hauser logs April 22-23, 2018

** NEWFOUNDLAND. 2598-USB, April 23 at 0128, YL voice in English with marine weather, VP S4-S5 about equal to noise level. Canadian Coast Guard schedule shows starting at 0107 is VOK Labrador via St. Anthony, Newfoundland Island site. Nothing on 2749-USB right now, normally stronger from NS area if anything be on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6960-AM, April 23 at 0056, JBA music S6 vs S5 noise level, and some stronger ute bursts. Slightly better at 0122 with ECSS, music, some SSB ACI. These say it`s Dr. Detroit:,41983.0.html

** NORTH AMERICA. 6905-AM, April 23 at 0057 blues music at S7-S9, with barking, YL talking with dance music, synthetic voice rappy in English nonsense. No ID circa hourtop. Off by 0122 check. These say it`s Clever Name Radio:,41982.0.html

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1926 monitoring: confirmed, restored to 2330 UT on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB: Sunday April 22 good signal on 9329.9v-CUSB. 

Also confirmed UT Monday April 23 at 0130:30 on WRMI, S9+40 on 5850, S9-S5 on 7780 --- but third frequency 5950 is off. It had been on before 0100 with Eslovaquia; at 0050 no longer with the big SAH, but still trace of another signal, presumably Iran. Also confirmed UT Mon Apr 23 from 0300:30 on Area 51 webcast, and until 0329:30 on WBCQ 5129.8v. JBA UT Mon Apr 23 at 0330 on WRMI 9955, but definitely on webcast. And still repeating immediately from 0400 on webcast only, a full schedule for which is not available. More below about WRMI`s new schedule display. Next:
Mon 2330   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030   WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030   WRMI 7780 to NE, 9455 to WNW [or #1927?]
Tue 2130   WRMI 7780 to NE, 9455 to WNW [or #1927?]

Full WOR sked on all outlets, podcast access:

** U S A. Checking I see that the program skedgrid below the transmission skedgrid has been completely reorganized! --- now it`s System by color-coded System, each of which will be on a variety of frequencies depending on the time. This is more explicit than before. But it would still be helpful to have a separate schedule sorted by frequency. Otherwise you have to hunt thru the Systems for a particular frequency and time.

WORLD OF RADIO times are as before, including the new one Sunday at 1900 on 9395, and the almost-new one Monday at 0130 on 5850, (5950-not), 7780. AND, still allegedly Saturday 2300 on 7780, while VORW has really been airing.

Now there`s a better view of System G - Oldies, and all the variations from that. But strangely, shows RAE in German M-F at 19-20 UT on 9395, but Italian M-F at 20-21 UT on 9455. Yet System D shows 20-21 UT with variety programming on 9455 and 7780, including WOR Tuesday at 2030 as before. 9455 can`t be on both Systems at once. 

NOTE that System G and System B (mainly 9955) are displayed in EDT!! While the others are in UT. It`s still not 100% accurate compared to monitoring, e.g. Overcomer really running beyond 0500 on 7570 as heard last night (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** U S A. 7490, April 23 at 0107, WBCQ with Blalock the Blaster; 9330 with Brother Scare; 5130 with Area 51 music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5050, UT Mon Apr 23 at 0055, still no signal from WWRB nor anywhere on 90m. 15240 also missing earlier, so maybe just totally off, whatever the nominal scheduling may now be (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505v, April 23 at 0107, still no signal from WRNO (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. No one asked, but anyhow, I left one number out of the URL for recording of KLEY Wellington KS; should have a 1 after SNAFU as I anticipate adding a 2: how it sounded April 20 when tuned to 1129-USB:

UNIDENTIFIED. 11990-12007 approx., April 23 at 0113, huge distorted blob peaking about 12000, S9+10, cannot make out any rational modulation in AM or FM modes. Maybe Cuba. RHC is OK on 11840, 11760, 11700, 11670 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
