Glenn Hauser logs October 21-22-23, 2018

** CUBA. 13740, Oct 22, less than two minutes of overlap today between RHC Spanish music and CRI English news, 1400-1401:50, adding up to S9+30/40. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA [non]. 11580, Oct 22 at 1356 check, Radio Nigeria, Kaduna is VG S9+20 thisaway with African music, so how is it in target? Note that WRMI`s other African beam on 21525 is almost 10 MHz higher. There has to be a huge propagational differential (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. UNID, 6940-USB, Oct 21 at 2314 rock music at S6-S7 vs local increased noise level with spikes to S9, stops by 2315.
Many other extremely detailed logs here, until 2315* but no IDs!,47144.0.html

** THAILAND. 9390, Oct 22 at 1244, R. Thailand amid news in English about clashes in Kaduna, poor with flutter, ACI de TOMBS 9395. HSK9 is rarely listenable here, but it might be if they would only aim this way instead of SE! But this frequency is about to be deleted in B-18. 

English broadcasts from HSK9 have been caught at unscheduled times/frequencies: by Alan Roe at 0120 on 15590, supposed to be an hour in Thai between Englishes to North America, but back to Thai the next day; by Ron Howard at 1130-1200 on 5875, English instead of Japanese and German, and with a transmission break at 1144, beam change? This was Oct 14, 15 and 17, so not an anomaly. 

I check the HFCC B-18 sked as of Oct 14 and do not find any such changes, but some other ones for the alleged complete English:

 7475 at 1900-2000 & 2030-2045 to Europe (ex-9390)
 9940 at 1230-1300 & 1400-1430 to SE Asia/Australia (ex-9390)
13745 at 0000-0100 & 0230-0300 to North America (ex-15590 as usual)
17640 at 0530-0600 to Europe (no change)

I don`t find any plain old SW schedule at and hardly anything in English (Glenn Hauser, WORLD OF RADIO 1953, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1952 monitoring: confirmed Sunday October 21 at 2130 on WRMI 9955 and 7780, about equally fair-poor. The UT Monday 0130 broadcast on WRMI 5850 & 7780 was canceled a few weeks ago, but we are back at that time UT Monday October 22 on 5950, since WRMI has started relaying WRN during long hours, including this time for WOR; axually started on 5950 at 0130:33. Also confirmed circa 0300 UT Mon Oct 22 on Area 51 webcast, and on WBCQ 5129.8 at 0308 check. Also confirmed at 0358 check the 0330 on WRMI 9955, good signal.

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search, Oct 22 from 1228 UT, this time for a change on the R75 with E-W longwire instead of DX-398, so I can`t check direxions: 531, 585, 594*, 612, 657(2), 702, 711, 747*, 756, 774*, 819(2), 828, 837, 855, 873, 882, 945, 972*, 1008, 1017, 1035, 1044, 1062, 1098, 1143, 1179, 1197 but none higher; now it`s 1236 as the lower ones are weakening but I still have 891(2), 945(2). *means stronger ones; (2) means at least two carriers beating. LSR today: 1245 UT (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
