Glenn Hauser logs January 20, 2019

** CUBA. 6100, Sunday January 20 at 0702, RHC is S9+10 opening in Esperanto citing its schedule starting with Sunday *0800* on 6100! What do they know? Supposed to be 0800 during non-DST season, but shortly in November, RHC went back to 0700. The others: Sun 1600 on 11760 (and 15140?? I still haven`t confirmed this for sure); Sun 2330 on 15730. Now the other three 6 MHz English frequencies to which weekly Es`po is appended, have gone off but 5040 is still S9+20 of hummy/hashy open carrier at 0708. Io estas ĉiam malĝusta en Radio Habana Kubo. If the circumflexes don`t survive, make that chiam maljusta (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15254.42, Jan 20 at 1510, JBA RHC spur // 11760; then found more circa 15311, 14997, 14968, the usual ones out of 15140.0 transmitter, but 15254.42 is different at plus 114.42 kHz if it too be out of 15140 rather than 15230 which is also on but never traced as a spursource. Match would be 15025.58 where nothing noted. Significantly, 114.42 = 4 x 28.605 kHz, the latest figure also involved in the next one:

15168.63, Jan 20 at 1515, another suspicious JBA blob, which is 28.63 kHz above 15140.0, so does it have a minus-match? Yes, JBA 15111.41, which is within 40 Hz of the opposite, margin of error. There should/could also be something circa 15082 = 2 x 28.64 displaced.

14911.13, Jan 20 at 1532, JBA spur with music // 11760 RHC, which is 228.87 kHz from 15140.0. Its match would be 15368.87, but did not get around to checking that. Had been trying to expedite searches by not taking time to nail these down to third decimal places. No spurs to seek on 13 MHz band today. Somethings` always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH. 7580, Jan 20 at 0715, VP YL in Japanese; must be VOK as scheduled at 07-13 & 21-24; no other E Asian signals this early on 7 MHz, i.e. 16:15 Pyongyang local re-time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 13710.013, Jan 20 at 1504, SBC is S9+10/20, much stronger than usual, with lovely music in Arabic alleging that there is an Allah who is akbar. Much better signal than usual. Need to fine-tune slightly plus to make the music via SSB sound on-key. Note: as transliterated, not to be confused with akhbar = news (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1965 monitoring: Please note that in the opening of WOR 1965 I say ``recorded January 9th``, while it was really on the 16th! WOR 1965 truly is a new edition after 1964 on the 9th. Sorry for my confusion! 

Confirmed UT Sunday January 20 at 0426 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, S9+30, about 12 minutes into, so started circa 0414. 

KB4IUJ tells me, ``Heard show 1965 On 5950 at 2:30 CST (0830-0900)Sunday morning. Sent from my iPod`` Should also be on 5850 & 7730.

** U S A. 15555-USB, Jan 20 at 1507, JBA gospel huxter signifying that QRP ``broadcaster`` WJHR is operative aside much stronger 15550-AM Vatican (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1140, Jan 20 at 1429 UT, looking for Relevant Radio unID as heard Tue Jan 15 before 1400: dominant is KXRB Sioux Falls SD, ``Great Country, 100.1 and 1140 AM``. Not much from my nearest KRMP OKC until 1431 plug for a 405-AC church. I struggle to split the difference nulling both as much as possible, and at 1435 fades in from NE/SW another Christian conversation, but no Relevant heard. 

Altho not listed as REL, another station I need to check out is KCXL, Liberty MO (Kansas City market), U1 4000/6 watts. And guess what, their program schedule besides far-right extremist secular talkshows, includes at 6-8 am (CST = UT -6) Mon-Fri, ``Relevant Radio``!
Nothing shown before 8 am weekends, but after 8 on Sundays now it`s ``The Jesus Christ Show`. So my unID is now ID as KCXL (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1470, Jan 20 at 1422 UT, Mexican music before and after ``La Nueva 14-70 AM`` ID, loops NNE/SSW. Prime suspect is KAIR Atchison KS, which per NRC AM Log had been off the air since October 2017, was classic country. Current searches lead only to its FM 93.7
The AM is licensed as U3 1/1 kW, with tight direxional lobes toward SW (good for us) and NNE (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED [and non]. 4959-USB, Jan 20 at 0707, weak intermittent 2-way in unknown language; inadvisable vs AM carrier on 4960 which must be VOA São Tomé scheduled 0700-0730 daily in Hausa; but I am not hearing any such modulation (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 12000, Jan 20 at 1537, S9+10/S8 open carrier for the fourth day in a row at various times (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
