Glenn Hauser logs July 24-25, 2019

** ALBANIA. 9570 & 6020, July 24 at 0003, no signals from CRI relays to North America. Wolfgang Bueschel assumes Cërrik off for summer maintenance in the 23-05 UT overnight period, other transmissions also missing after 23 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, July 25 at 0535, RHC English, S9+20/30 but suptorted, and also JBA on 2 x 6100 = 12200. 6000 also suptorted and weaker; 6165 weakest but not suptorted? 5040 not suptorted but loud with hum. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

Feliz 26 de julio! Patria o Suerte, ¡Pensaremos! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 11725, July 25 at 2105, English news from RNZI, S4-S3. Not often heard here, now propagating as their midwinter lower morning frequency for two hours from 2059, but should be better on 13840 from 2259. No more 15720 until spring (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7470, July 25 at 0402, Station YHWH is back, barely recognizable on peaks, vs cross-mod from huge 7335 & 7435 Radio Martí signals --- not a usual problem with the R75, but maybe having to run the noise blanker too causes it. Had been unreported for about a week, but tnx now due to timely tips on the WOR io group from Walt Salmaniw and Rick Barton. Still going at 0529 with better signal here  (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1991 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday July 24 from *2100:25 on 9955 as yet again, WRMI cuts on late with WOR playback already in progress, having started on time. Such are the risks of being the very first program on a given transmission. Initially S5-S7 vs HNL, then up to S9 for 100% readability; power level turned up? 

Simultaneously on 7490+v WBCQ? JBA carrier only and don`t get to computer in time to check webcast before 2129; can only hope that unlike last week, it`s just me, not mixing with BS.

Also confirmed UT Thursday July 25 at 0100, on WRMI 7780, poor-fair S9+10 including HNL.

WOR 1992 to be ready by late UT Thursday July 25, for first SW broadcasts Friday; note that all Unique Radio airings after 0730 are now on 3210-USB, not 5045-USB, and no longer on Fridays at all:

** U S A. 6160.096V, July 24 at 0602, JBA carrier vs S9+20 local line noise level which is severely impacting my DXing below 8 MHz. New frequency of WBCQ first reported earlier in the daytime by Chris Smolinski in Maryland. Allan Weiner had mentioned this plan on previous AWWW July 20, and was newly registered in HFCC as 50 kW, 24 h, 245 degrees, same power and azimuth as all the other ``classic`` WBCQs. Presumed to be the off-frequency transmitter previously on 9330.1v carrying almost nothing but Brother Scare, but that frequency open, now standing by for the 500 kW World`s Last Chance nonsense to resume sometime in August. One might expect the same BS content on 6160, but a twit from AW via Artie Bigley says lots of time is for sale on it.

I hear the JBA carrier again at 0101 July 25 when I make the above measurement, tho wobbles slightly. As one might have expected, with splash from 6165 RHC. If it`s really running all day as well as all night, should be interesting to compare with 6070-. 1 kW CFRX Toronto reception in closer environs.

7490.18, July 25 at 0237, music and WBCQ jingle, S9+10/20 vs HNL, instead of `Hal Turner Show` scheduled 01-03 UT Thursdays. Also detectable JBA carriers on 5130.38, 6160.1. 

BTW, doesn`t show 6160 yet but includes 9330 WLC daily at 0400-0400, i.e. forever (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
