Glenn Hauser logs July 20-21, 2018

** AUSTRALIA. 11750, July 20 at 1305, S Asian song, S9/S9+10, vs splash from 11760 RHC. Off at 1343 check. It`s RBA, KNX at 1200-1330 in Hindi per HFCC, which as usual is just a generality. Aoki/NDXC shows the sesquihour in a variety of languages, but does happen to be Hindi at this HOD on this DOW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** COLOMBIA. 5910.277v, July 20 at 0534, music VP at S7-S8, no doubt Alcaraván Radio, which is often absent. Earthquake almost 24 hours earlier at 0539 UT July 19 may have jolted it on? Mike Terry reports:
Magnitude 5.1. 35 km from Dolores, Tolima, Colombia

Dolores itself is 160 km = 100 miles from Puerto Lleras (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6060, July 20 at 0525, this is tonight`s AWOL RHC English frequency, uncovering only the off-frequency Brazilian, SRDA. Remains on: 5040, 6000 undermodulated, 6165 good, 6100 best. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6099.241, July 20 at 1231, RHC like yesterday is way off-frequency and hetting CRI Russian 6100.0. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13740, July 20 at 1344, RHC Spanish missing from here, but still on 13700. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN [non]. 9860, July 20 at 0528, something in English: NHK wrapping up. This relay southward via VATICAN for Africa would nevertheless be almost sufficient in North America from 0500, if one cared to listen to a station which has blown off its NAm SW audience (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** NORTH AMERICA. 7470, July 21 at 0153, Station YHWH on earlier than usually reported --- barely discernible sound of Josiah vs high noise level. Carrier still on at 0212, but modulation? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330.138v, July 20 at 0436, WBCQ is dead air instead of BS; next check at 1307, still/again dead air at S9/S9+10 on 9330.104v; BS is back by 1343. (9330v did not air WOR at 2330 July 19 or 20) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. (7490), UT Saturday July 21 from 0000, after previous live show hangs up phone, `Allan Weiner Worldwide` starts on webcast. I listen a bit; seems Angela has a lot to say tonight, rather than usually in the background. Still going past 0104 with e-mail, finishes with benedixion by AW and over to Blalock at 0104. A fuller report from John Carver:

``Tonight's AWWW --- Listening on 7490 yet again. Show started on time this evening. Allan and a very animated Angela in studio one. Opening talk about telephones.

First phone call at 0006 from Ramsey fueling the telephone discussion. Angela talked about the good old days when one could slam down the phone receiver in anger or disgust and not worry about breaking the phone. Apparently Allan threw his phone down yesterday which prompted this evening`s discussion.

At 0018 a phone call from Pirate Joe continuing the phone topic of this evening`s show. Very long discussion which covered phone types, texting, emails etc. Lots of talk about texting, which prompted a brief discussion on whether we were going forward or backward with the technology as the point was made as the technology increases, we actually spend less time talking with each other and revert to texting and emails. This morphed into a discussion of the perceived value of things and touched on silver and gold and several metals and the evils of digital money and digital money manipulation.

Another brief phone call at 0047 halted the previous discussions. Phone call at 0050 took off in another direction and talked of noise, especially digital noise on radio and the FCC`s refusal to address the problem. Prompted the caller to call the FCC another rogue government agency. Discussion ended in the middle with promises to continue it next week. Allan attempted to browse the emails at 0100. One email stated that the writer missed having Brother Stair on after AWWW as Allan never had qualms about running the show over when Brother Stair was on.

Quick prayer and show was off the air at 0109. Very interesting program tonight with some provocative discussions and a very animated Angela. John Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505v, July 20 at 0529, WRNO promo in Spanish for a program I think they said would be Friday at 8 pm, on to ID in English. Can`t say I`ve heard them at all in a Spanish program (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 93.5, July 20 at 1640 UT, another futile bandscan for Es DX, worsened by enhanced OK/KS tropo, including this station not normally audible, let alone dominant: ``Power 93.5``, Wichita ads; stereo but no RDS. Per WTFDA DB it is: KDGS, Andover KS, 15/15 kW H&V, 114m HAAT, supposed to display ``Artist/Song on Power 93, Adult Hits, RHYTHMIC CHR, POWER 93.5``. Andover is a suburb east of Wichita. What`s this ``rhythmic`` business in format claims? ALL music has rhythm of some sort (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
