Glenn Hauser logs July 21-22, 2018

** BRAZIL. 11780, UT Sunday July 22 at 0114, very surprised to find RNA on the air after 2300! Like the good old days; modulation is fine now and no spurs either. Is S9 with old romantic song. 0116 DJ outro says it was from 1943y, ``Sempre em meu coração``. Seems it`s a nostalgia show, and DJ talks about as long between songs as each song lasts, next at 0118. 0139 `Histórias do Frazão`, program title, and mentions other stations besides R. Nacional, such as Rádio Tupi. Found program page as on air at 22h local time Saturdays on RN Brasília:
What does frazão mean? It`s the name of the presenter:

``Sobre o programa --- Os fatos históricos e as curiosidades dos bastidores da Música Popular Brasileira no relato do produtor e memorialista Osmar Frazão. Apresentação: Osmar Frazão``.

Hope they`ll keep up an expanded schedule with lots of good music, even 24/7 like it used to be! However this particular program adds to the glut of conflicting good music shows Saturday nights, such as Wolverine, KBC, WTWW, WWCR, WWCR, RRI, ERT, etc., etc. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100.0, July 21 at 1254, RHC is not off-frequency today, colliding head-on with CRI in Russian, but well atop it here; // 6000 and no 6060 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15140, July 21 at 1705, RHC Spanish is S8 on frequency supposed to start with fornlangs at 1800; // 11760, the only frequency supposed to be on thru midday. Something`s always wrong at RHC; and more QRM for Oman (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9420, UT Sunday July 22 at 0108, VOG is S8 in Greek, soon song in minor key. I`ve noticed this is usually active Saturday nights here, but not Sunday nights = UT Mondays (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6960-USB, July 22 at 0031, S9, ``Lazy Bones`` song, then ``Sleeping in the Sun``; 0034 ``Cheek by Cheek``; still going at 0041; 0052 ``Never Let Your Left Hand Know What Your Right Hand`s Doin```; 0120 still going, and at 0142 when the others are off; and at 0208 when I QRT. Smax of Wolverine Radio, and these agree, *0030-0219*, one with an exhaustive playlist of songs about body parts:,44525.0.html

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925-USB, July 22 at 0120, hard rock music, S6-S8. Was not on earlier; 0142 off; 0208 back on. Clever Name Radio, per:,44528.0.html

** NORTH AMERICA. 6940-USB, July 22 at 0133, introducing FDR`s ``Four Freedoms`` speech and playing it; bonker ACI from 6945 unless I narrow the bandwidth/PBT. One pirate specialises in FDR speeches:,44523.0.html
Was first logged at 2358, intermittently, and only the last log by Hassig found him back on after 0122 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SRI LANKA. 11904.9, July 22 from 0029 to 0031+, no carrier from SLBC on one radio; before nominal 0100* I check on the other radio at 0057 and there is the off-frequency JBA carrier. Would not be the first time it came on late (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TAIWAN [non]. 6190-CUSB, Saturday July 21 from 1405, `Media Network Plus` via HLR, GERMANY on Utwente SDR. Keith Perron quite readable, mostly interviewing Victor Goonetilleke, about DRM. Concludes with date of original which was exactly six years ago, July 21, 2012, in a `best of` show (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 4036-USB, July 22 at 0051 as I tune across, convenient fonetik ID for AFA5HF, very poor signal. MARS net, probably caller but could be callee. Last heard MARS here Feb 15, 2017 at 0211, not including this sign (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1939 monitoring: confirmed Saturday July 21 from 1431 on Hamburger Lokalradio, 6190-CUSB, heard via UTwente SDR, fairly good with some fades. MN+ during the previous semihour was a bit stronger on average. Alan Gale, England, reports:

``Hi Glenn, I tuned in on 6190 kHz around 1230 UT and the channel was quiet except for the usual heterodyne, but at 1234 the HLR signal suddenly came on and at reasonable strength. It was a bit up and down for the rest of the broadcast, though audible, but as often happens,
World of Radio suddenly came up in strength at around 1442 UT and was
very good then until the end of the programme. A short .mp3 of it coming up in strength is attached. Alan.``

Since WRMI has replaced both our Saturday evening airings on 7780 with somethings else, the next chance is not until 0315v UT Sunday on WA0RCR, 1860-AM. Confirmed here S9+20 fair vs noise level about 11 minutes in at 0337 so started circa 0326. Next:

Sun 1030   HLR 9485-CUSB to WSW
Sun 2330   WBCQ 9330v to WSW [maybe]
Mon 0130.5 WRMI 5850 to NW, 7780 to NE
Mon 0300v  WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0330   WRMI 9955 to SSE
Mon 0400   WRMI webcast only, non-direxional
Mon 2330   WBCQ 9330v to WSW [maybe]
Tue 0030   WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030   WRMI 7780 to NE, 5950 to WNW [or #1940?]
Tue 2130   WRMI 5950 to WNW [or #1940?]

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

** U S A. 11580, July 21 at 2122, S9 undermodulated music, Oldies? If it`s Saturday, this must be WRMI, ``temporary`` weekly bihour on this band and frequency. 2129 `Oldies` style ID but not // 9395 which is still musicking. By 2131 it`s Kim Elliott into SW Radiogram beepery. 
This airing is news to Kim! Not on his schedule at:
2158 classical music fill; 2159 Oldies style ID now up to S9+10, 2200 time pips a few seconds late, and opening VORW, which turns out to be // 9395 now and also // 7780 after YWS closed. John claims it`s Thursday July 19, which was the original VORW airdate. If only 11580 could emit WORLD OF RADIO Tuesday (or anyday) at 2130, as it once did ensuring much better reception beyond SFL than 5950 does now in midsummer! 

9955, UT Sunday July 22 at 0101 WRMI with rustic DJ introducing country music, gospel? This is *not* `Viva Miami` as still shown on the System B program schedule for 9 pm Saturday.

On WRMI skedgrids I see something new: `Arabic Radio`, Sun 0230-0245 on 7780 but unchecked this week; Monday 2030-2045 (or -2100?) on 5950 & 7780. Could the title be a bit more specific? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** U S A. 5830 & 9475, July 21 at 1255, WTWW-1 AWOL from both night and day frequencies. 1709 recheck, 9475 only is on, no 15809.9.

5085, UT Sunday July 22, WTWW-2 is S9+30/40 with rock music; 0102 `Theatre Organ in the Ozarx` starts relatively early. Bob Heil says this week it`s a tribute to his late mentor Stan Can (sp?), with recordings of him playing at Belleville IL and at the Fox in St Louis. Can, who also collected vacuum cleaners, appeared on Johnny Carson`s Tonight Show 72 times. TOITO ends at 0139, over to Ted adstring. No sign of once // 15809.9 tonight either (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** U S A. 5050, UT Sunday July 22 at 0047, WWRB is on with usual lo-fi excited gospel huxters, S9+25/30; neglected to check 10100 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
