Glenn Hauser logs December 22-23, 2018

** CUBA. 9535, Dec 23 at 1333, RHC with some hum, at first seemingly slightly off-frequency, but the hum peaks make it hard to pinpoint. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6150, Sunday Dec 23 at 1340, RHC with Campesina music show, S9+10/20, the only 49mb frequency on now. On Dec 18, Wolfgang Bueschel found 6000 instead. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13925, 13850, 13775, 13625, 13550, 13475, Dec 23 at 1454, FM spurs out of 13700-AM RHC, approx. 75 kHz intervals, wider than usual. Most readable in FM is 13625; 13850 QRMs 13845 WWCR; 13775 QRMs RHC 13780. All with the F# tone, which is all that can be detected as far down as the trace on 13475. By 1517, 13780 is off but 13700 et al. remain. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

15311, 15283, 14997, 14969, approx., Dec 23 at 1459, the usual weak distorted spurpairs out of RHC 15140, which itself is somewhat distorted and overmodulated. See previous report for exact measurements. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15700, Dec 23 at 1517, CRI English relay is missing! Nor found in quick scan anywhere else on  9, 11, 13 or 15 MHz bands supposed to run at 14-16. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-AM, Dec 22 at 2304, JBA talk, at first presumed to be local KCRC on 5 x 1390, but then checked and not //, so a pirate. Nothing matching at HFUnderground, but earlier until 2229*    Captain Morgan SW was being heard on 6950.7 (and I think what I had was on 6950.0):,49246.0.html
And before him until 2127* on 6950.5 was Toynbee Radio:,49243.0.html

** OKLAHOMA. 1210, Sunday Dec 23 at 1416 UT, `Fox Football Fantasy` on Fox Sports Radio, which I have been noticing a lot lately on KGYN Guymon. Sibling station to 1480 KQAM Wichita and many others, website has same design: confirming that KGYN is on FSR for 18 hours Sundays 06-24 UT! But not fulltime. 1416 national adstring ends with one local insert for Fence Master in Cherokee (OK town well east of Guymon) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** POLAND [non]. 5950, Dec 22 at 2307, S9+20 but poor and noisy, news in English all about Poland, commercial relations with Africa. Hard to believe this is anything but Polish Radio, despite WRMI skedgrid showing this hour as Radio France International!
Indeed, WRN to North America schedule
does show Polish Radio daily at 2300-2400 --- so WRMI has stayed with WRN another hour after DW at 2200-2300. Nice to have PR back on SW, and I bet they don`t even know about it in Warszawa (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 9330.111, Dec 23 at 1328, this WBCQ is on again with Brother Scare, S9-S7. Perhaps TimTron has been repairing it while in Monticello? If they can keep it going, presumably backup 5130.4 will not need to be BSing long hours instead.

9395, Dec 23 at 1331, WRMI is S9-S7 of dead air; by 1339 resumed with Brother HyStairical (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)


** U S A. 1480, Dec 23 at 1350 UT, hard rap in Spanish, artificially sped-up vocalizations, obviously KBXD Dallas 50 kW daypower overcoming KQAM Wichita; 1355 UT ``Banda Trece 14-80 AM``. So that`s the latest incarnation for KBXD, the name formerly used by 1700 KKLF Richardson (which is very different now with TexMexmx). As of August in the NRC AM Log, KBXD was brokered religion in the Voz Evangélica group. still has it as Spanish religion.

Meanwhile I am hearing Jim Bohannon`s voice underneath on KQAM, a time I would not expect him, but there he is on the schedule at 6-8 am CT Sundays:

UNIDENTIFIED. 12054.8-USB, Dec 23 at 1452, very poor Spanish 2-way off-tune due to JBA AM carrier on 12055.0, which would be IBB Lampertheim, GERMANY in Uzbek this hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1717 UT December 23
