Glenn Hauser logs June 23-24, 2019

** CHINA. 11460, June 24 at 1416, CNR-1 jammer at S5-S7, on an SOH frequency. Only WOOB one found in a 10-16 MHz scan, altho there is a suspicious JBA carrier on 14700, unlisted in EiBi or Aoki/NDXC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GERMANY. 17690, June 24 at 1409, JBA carrier with flutter (or with jammer CCI). Aoki/NDXC shows only VOA Tibetan via Lampertheim during this hour only. Don`t usually hear a carrier here; only other signals on band are 17615+ Saudi JBA carrier, and more than that already from 17775 KVOH (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, June 24 at 0602, JBA carrier, presumed SIBC. Seems awfully early, but Honiara sunset will be 0710, now at its earliest; at 10 degrees south it varies only 30 minutes over the course of a year. Wonder if they are modulating too? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1987 monitoring: confirmed Sunday June 23 at 2130 on WRMI 7780, just barely audible.

Also confirmed UT Monday June 24 at 0130 on WRMI 9395, fair.

Also confirmed UT Monday June 24 at 0230 on WRMI 7780, poor.

Also confirmed UT Monday June 24 from 0300.5 on WBCQ-6 500 kW 9330.00, VG of course, S9+20/30 as has just brought up simulcast with Area 51; at 0328 I confirm WOR also on 5130.367, much weaker S9 vs high storm noise level.

Also confirmed UT Monday June 24 on WRMI 9955, S9+10/20. Next:

1816 UT Monday    IRRS 7290 Romania
0100 UT Tuesday   WRMI 7780
0800 UT Tuesday   Unique Radio 5045-USB NSW [2 editions]
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v [and/or 2130]
0100 UT Thursday  WRMI 7780
0930 UT Friday    Unique Radio 5045-USB NSW

Also check 9330 WBCQ for unscheduled airings during testing phase.

[it appears we will now be running on a Friday-to-Thursday cycle, so freshest new airings are on weekends]

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:

** U S A. 9330.00 (I don`t write 9330.000 since I am not axually bothering to measure it to that detail, but probably), Sunday June 23 at 2130, WBCQ-6 superpower test is on, but this week modern rock, and not simulcasting `Marion`s Attic` from 7490 like happened partially last week. At 2205 I find it is now = much weaker 7490v with `Uncle Bill`s Melting Pot` including some Turkish music. Unknown what was at 2230, but before 2400 Harry Shearer`s `Le Show` is wrapping up on 9330, so that is still // 7490 unlike the 2300 hour last Sunday. At 0000 UT Monday June 24, 9330 goes into an `Allan Weiner Worldwide` replay, instead of `Encore` classical music now on 7490, and which I hear on webcast. Unknown what at 0100, but before 0300, another AWWW hour is ending from at 0200 start, somewhat curtailed in order to cut to // Area 51, 5130+ for WORLD OF RADIO, thanks! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, June 24 at 0601, S9+30 of dead air from WTWW-2, also the constant companions much weaker plus/minus ~12.9 kHz spur carriers just above 5072 and just below 5098. Maybe recently finished Sunday night broadcast and not turned off yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1210, UT Monday June 24 at 0606 UT, surprised to hear a program promo from WJNL, and into Jim Bohannon --- dominant on frequency vs KGYN or whatever, with SAH of 186/minute = just over 3 Hz. Still there at 0629 UT joint ID with three FM frequencies starting with 94.5, and ads mentioning Mackinaw and Traverse City.

No wonder I`m getting it since NRC AM Log shows WJNL is a 50 kW non-direxional daytimer! Plus 2500 watts critical hours, which this is not. CoL Kingsley MI, which is just south of Traverse City.

It`s in a group ``The Information Station`` which also includes: WHAK-960, WWMN-106.3, WJML-1110, W266CS-101.1, but that does not account for the one FM frequency I copied, 94.5.

The WTFDA FM Database is inaccessible (but not its whats new page). Per FCC AM & FM Query searches, 94.5 would be 50 kW WYPV in Mackinaw City, same licensee Mitten News as WJNL.

Anyhow, we have here a 50 kW ND daytimer on the air in the middle of the night, so should get out widely if they do it again! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1550, June 24 at 1325 UT, more than two hours after LSR here of 1115 UT, dead air from NE/SW and a SAH of 264/minute = 4.4 Hz. At 1330 UT now modulating ESPN. The only fit around here per NRC AM log is KESJ St Joseph MO, 2.5 kW ND at day; discounting KYAL Sapulpa OK, also 2.5 kW but eastward from here (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1700, June 24 at 1331 UT open carrier/dead air. Can`t get a sharp DF on it; got to be either KKLF TX or twice-as-far KBGG IA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
