Glenn Hauser logs February 27-28, 2019

** CUBA. 12140, Feb 27 at 1345, JBA carrier, so I try again to match trace of modulation to RHC and barely do so // 11950 as leapfrog fulcrum of 11760; rather than Quwait fundamental. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** CUBA. 15700, Feb 27 at 1512, China Plus relay of CRI English is S9+20 but suptorted. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN. 6055, Feb 27 at 1321, R Nikkei 1 with English lesson, phrases by OM alternating with Japanese by YL, something about yuan market prices in Shanghai, perhaps a regular Wednesday feature. A bit earlier it was not heard on 3925 which is supposed to be on from the other site (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAO TOME. 13590.058, Feb 27 at 1933, S7-S9 of off-frequency news in Special English about Indo-Pak conflict, i.e. VOA as scheduled via Pinheira; their 6080 is also noticeably askew (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 9335, Feb 27 at 1328, 1 kHz tone, 1329 Yankee Doodle and VOA sign-on, 1330 Cambodian via Tinang, S3-S4 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1971 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday February 27 at 2200 on WRMI 9955, fair and 4 seconds later on WBCQ 7490+, good S9+10. At 2220 I noticed another WBCQ is on the air, 5130.469, JBA, and yes, it`s WOR. But off at next check 2230.

Also confirmed UT Thursday February 28 at 0000 on WRMI 7730, VG, but by 0015 recheck it`s dumped to music fill, same as last week when first discovered by Richard Lemke. Yes, WOR is now on the sked for half an hour. 0030 starts Wavescan with no problem. I miss checking next airing at 0100 on WRMI 7780. Next, not until:

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

** U S A. 5130.035, Feb 27 at 0734, surprised to find JBA carrier here with a trace of modulation; WBCQ running this transmitter on a frequency adjusted closer to nominal. Now also JBAC around 3264.9. 5 MHz frequency also on during WOR at 2220, but back to higher offset (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, Feb 27 at 1512 and 1705, no signal audible from KVOH, but Ray Robinson assures me it`s back on the air. Finally at 1926 I can hear it propagating with praise music in Spanish, S9 to S9+10 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 2940.133, Feb 27 at 0729, JBA carrier from suspected second harmonic such as Cali, which would make the fundamental about 1470.655. Or MWoffsets has WBCR, Alcoa TN on 1470.63; NRC AM Log says 77 watts at night. Perhaps a DXer in Maryville/Alcoa could confirm the offset and harmonic (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
