Glenn Hauser logs December 21-22-23, 2018

** CHINA. 9415, Dec 22 at 2325, song in Chinese? Best Asian signal on band at S9+30, CRI Vietnamese hour, 500 kW from Beijing site at 193 degrees. Must be plenty back-radiation USward if not long path (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13740, Dec 21 circa 2030, RHC Spanish is gone again, after being strangely on some 25 hours earlier (date correct, missed in previous report) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, Sat Dec 22 at 2311, another unscheduled RHC broadcast, Spanish a bit suptorted, stronger than // 11760. Recheck at 2330 to find dead air and cut off; maybe they realized mistake. Uncovers algo JBA, like CNR Beijing or Xian, both listed. RHC 6000 is not supposed to start until 0200 (meaning 0100) in English, but also 00-01 UT Tue-Fri for Mesa Redonda. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1961 monitoring: confirmed surprise NEW time of 2200 Saturday Dec 22 on WRMI 9955, fair and no jamming for a change. Also confirmed UT Sunday Dec 23 starting at 0427 on WA0RCR, 
1860-AM, MO, S9+30: should easily be covering eastern half of North America at least. Slight CCI, maybe some LSB ham foolish enough to emit on 1860? Next:

Complete updated WOR sked, all affiliates, satellite, webcast, AM&FM:

** U S A. 9395, UT Sun Dec 23 at 0402, WRMI with `Your Weekend Show`, VG S9+10, much better than 9955, Bob Biermann reminiscing about decorating family Xmas trees, so a current show or an evergreen? I don`t run across him often so search the WRMI skedgrids on Weekend, but mainly Wknd, to find all these dozen scheduled times: Sat 07 9395, Sat 09 9395, Sat 10 5950, Sat 12 5950, Sat 18 5950, Sat 21 7780, Sun 04 9395, Sun 18 5950, Sun 21 9395, Sun 23 9395, Mon 04 7730, Mon 07 9395 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. 9330.0, Dec 22 at 2140, this WBCQ is back after several days` absence, with Brother Scare. Seems close to on-frequency but not measured yet. At 2324 I`m ready to do so, and it`s gone again! Next check at 0218 Dec 23, trace of 9330 signal, maybe this, while 7490+ is poor, 5130+ very poor.

7490+, Dec 22 at 2316, now WBCQ is as weak as the CNR1 QRM on 7490.0, working together to produce a LAH. Sked Sat at 2300-0040 Sun is `Good Time Oldies`, a show I haven`t really heard of unknown provenance by someone who must like round numbers: a 100-minute program.

7490.17, Dec 23 at 0413, WBCQ still on in a story narration, poor-fair. I guess during `SW Saturday Night` scheduled until 0500. Is Pirate Joe`s own WHVW 950 Hyde Park NY still off, and anybody know what happened? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7335, Dec 23 at 2319, sermon in American about Jesus, Xmas. Didn`t realize WHRI is here, but HFCC registered daily 22-24, 250 kW at 47 degrees. Thisaway, it`s only S9-S7. In fact, WHR does not know about it either, missing from: nor is 7.335 one of the frequencies in their drop-down search list, nor is it on the program schedules for Angels 1, 2, 5 or 6! Maybe what I heard was this supposedly on 7385: ``2300-0000 6:00 PM-7:00 PM Sat The Christian Worship Hour Dr. Harold E. Salem 7.385 Mhz``.

Family Broadcasting Corporation, what`s that?? ``Family Broadcasting Corporation (formerly LeSEA Broadcasting Corporation) exists to reach out to the lost across the globe and to provide you and your family with an alternative to viewing secular television programs``. So no more LeSEA; when did that change? Maybe they got tired of having to explain/teach how to spell correctly that strange name. For the historical record, it meant: LEster Sumrall Evangelistic Association (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
