Glenn Hauser logs June 24-25-26, 2018

** ARGENTINA [non]. See USA: WRMI below, RAE changes

** CANADA. 990, June 26 at 0650 UT, CBW Winnipeg is dominating the frequency, not unusual lacking any auroral suppression, ending `The World` from PRI, also carried in the afternoon on numerous USA public radio stations, and previewing next programming from The Monocle, a non-BBC British source, which I`ve yet to run across on any USA station, just CBC overnight. Apparently to be on in following hour after news, as now just some music, fill? `The World` is excellent and ought to be on some US SW station (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15140, June 25 at 1412 check, RHC is off again, unlike all morning yesterday. 15230 is however on now, and maybe was missing yesterday, altho it`s scheduled only until 1500, while mistaken 15140 stayed on past 1730 into its nominal start after 1800. Punched up wrong frequency or memory? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6270, June 26 at 0636, the smooth speech of ``Ed Newman`` can be recognized at S6 about even with the noise level, i.e. leapfrog mixing product of RHC English 6060 over 6165 another 105 kHz higher. Why aren`t these longstanding spurs shown in frequency references? They are on the air. They exist. They make RHC a QRP DX target. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN [non]. 12005, June 25 at 1413, presumed Farsi song at S8-S3 from R. Farda, as scheduled 13-18 via Woofferton UK, better than usual (also 11-13 via Lampertheim, Germany)(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 11910, June 25 at 1414, folk music and stilted German announcement, S7-S4 from RRI during this hour from Tsiganeshti site, also USward beyond. Note to editors: unless you can successfully produce a comma/cedilla under the first T and the S to properly render the name, please don`t ``correct`` to ``Tiganesti`` my correct phonetic transcription (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH AFRICA. 11925, June 25 at 0622, African accented English with news about Central Africa, report from Durban, S9-S7. It`s Channel Africa this hour at 315 degrees also USward from Meyerton (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH AFRICA, 15200, June 25 at 0644, JBA signal here is the OSOB in the nightmiddle, i.e. DW in Hausa via Meyerton (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1935 monitoring: confirmed June 25 at 0136 the 0130.5 UT Monday on WRMI, 5850 good, 7780 fair. Also confirmed UT Monday June 25 from 0301 on Area 51 webcast, also on WBCQ 5129.8 at 0328 check. Also confirmed at 0330 on WRMI 9955, fair-poor; also confirmed at 0422 check, the immediate repeat from 0400 on WRMI webcast only. Also confirmed UT Tuesday June 26 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, very good.

Since the WRMI schedules are self-contradictory, I`m struggling to monitor what is axually on in the noisy summer afternoon. Tuesday June 26 at 2054, is WORLD OF RADIO still on 7780 and 5950 from 2030? Yes, 7780 is JBA with what must be the last repeat of WOR 1935; 5950 seems to be // but can`t be positive. 

WORLD OF RADIO 1936 contents: Antarctica non, Australia, Bhutan, Bolivia, Botswana, Bougainville, Canada, Chile, China, Cuba, France, India, Korea North non, Korea South, Kurdistan non, New Zealand, Nicaragua, North America, Philippines, Seychelles non, Spain, USA and non; propagation outlook.

WOR 1936 ready for first airing on WRMI, Tuesday June 26 at 2130: 7780 has definitely changed at 2140 check to RAE in Italian [see ARGENTINA [non]], and 5950 unseems // but just too weak in a large noise level to be positive it`s WOR 1936. Please, Jeff, can`t you put this and all other 5950 daytime programming on a 9 or even better, 11 MHz frequency? Altho it had been showing up Tuesdays if not otherdays at 2330 on WBCQ 9330v, today June 26, WOR does not, just more BS. Next:

Full schedule for WOR on all outlets, not just SW; podcast linx:

** U S A. 9395, Monday June 25 at 1919, WRMI is JBA and 7780 is a JBA carrier. Skedgrid has been changed to delete RAE 1900 M-F relay in German, and 2000 in Italian from 9395, instead moved two hours later on 7780 (which was the original time when they began on 11580). 

So what`s on 9395 now? Before and after 2000, 9395 is Brother Scare, 7780 too weak to be sure but maybe also BS. By 2126, 9395 is definitely Oldies with Beatles at S9+10, and 7780 JBA talk, BS? 

9955 at 2126 June 25 with talk in Brazuguese, but it`s only a clip within `La Rosa de Tokio`, historical media show as scheduled Mondays 21-22, then back to Argentine Spanish, another episode in a series about Brazilian SW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505v, June 24 at 2210, WRNO is on way early, S9+25 with music and dead air, bits of music on and off, so perhaps testing. Second time I`ve caught them on a Sunday afternoon, before nominal *0100 sign-on, which they have also been missing sporadically (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1936, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3215, June 26 at 0638, WWCR-1 is still off, altho the current transmitter schedule claims it runs straight thru from 01 to 09 UT. All dated June 1, will the program schedule be more accurate? Yes, shows 3215 only until 0300* except UT Monday to 0400* Furthermore, WWCR-1 has blank entries for next frequency 15795 at 09-12 daily, transmitter not back on air until *1200 on 15825. So much for the foreign language block in Russian, Arabic, which Ivo often reports. BTW, all frequencies are labeled in milliHertz instead of MegaHertz --- I don`t think so (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
