Glenn Hauser logs September 6--7, 2019

** GUAM. 11955, Sept 6 at 2205, nice hallelujah harmonies, 2217 Indonesian talk at S8 to S9+10. KSDA scheduled this hour daily.

12040, Sept 6 at 2218, slightly weaker SE Asian talk; must be Sundanese as scheduled from KSDA this semihour on days 2467 per Aoki/NDXC, as this is UT Friday = day 6; otherwise English on 135. 

I remain impressed by how well KSDA serves deep North America during its broadcasts supposedly aimed at SE Asia, both 100 kW at 255 degrees (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9830, Sept 6 at 2206 and 2249 chex, no signal from VOT English to N America; must be off, as Spain is propagating 9690 very well. Something`s always wrong at TRT Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7335, Sept 6 at 2247, Radio Martí VG signal as usual, and barely audible under jamming on 9565, 11930. Meant to check earlier in day whether any Grimesland NC frequencies were blown off by edges of Hurricane Dorian, but all OK now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1998 monitoring: confirmed first SWBC, Friday Sept 6 at 2200 on WRMI 9955, no upcut, S9-S5; by 2227 weakening to S8-S5 and traces of Cuban pulse jamming beginning to appear. 

Also confirmed UT Sat Sept 7 at 0130 on WRMI 7780, poor vs HLNL.

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

** U S A. 9330.13v, Friday Sept 6 at 2151, WBCQ is on here at S8 with hard rock music instead of NOAA Weather Radio relay. Must be gearing up for AAAWWW. At 2222 the modulation is cutting off and on. 

7490.21v, Friday Sept 6 at 2153, `Behaviour Night` music, but too much noise here to enjoy Sir Scratchy and his ancient tunes.

(7490), UT Sat Sept 7 from 0000, WBCQ webcast of `Allan and Angela Weiner WorldWide`, since I am busy editing on computer, don`t even try to hear it on SW. Ramsey calls in almost immediately, and I keep listening since there is hardly and politix this week, just about the SuperStation and technology, such as railing against computer dependence --- keep it out of our transmitters!

But first at 2359 Sept 6, I notice that previous program wrapping up, thinx he will be on WINB 9625 [sic] tomorrow, and also on WWRB 5050. Clunk, hangs up phone. That weblink does not work.

First, AW makes it clear that he does *not* want to be stuffed post-mortem, note that Angela! Even if it`s legal in strange Canada. 

6160 has been retubed by TimTron, at a cost of tens of thousands of dollars; and blew 800-amp fuses.

Lack of equipment support: Ampegon that went bankrupt are dicks. Continental people are dickish.

One guy formerly with Ampegon, RF engineer named Norbert is now here working on the antenna. Antenna tuning unit is in the tubular sexion. 50 and 100 ohms have to be matched for different frequencies. The ATU has four caps which cost $18K each. Two coils are ganged together by a chain, which broke. A special 8-mm chain, hard to replace, but Angela located one which was shipped in from NC, arrived today. It`s like a bicycle chain, and lubricated like one. AW went up 40 feet to install it, and now that is working. Tonight`s show is ``quinta-casting`` on 3265, 5130, 6160, 7490, 9330=backup not SS.

At 0055 looks thru the new issue of Free Radio Weekly, just published, mentions pirates logged and frequencies, but no dates, times or credit; including YHWH by me which he thinx is religious --- hee hee, yeah, anti-Christ, as I often denominate it but not this time. Then to e-mail. Confirms that 9330 has been relaying NOAA Weather Radio, from FL, SC, NC, and would do that again if needed. Thinx that Our Father is responsible for steering Dorian away from US mainland. Prayer until 0104, then plugs 6160 available 24/7 at $35 an hour; or would like to lease it out full-time. 

5130 is a ``loss-leader`` subsidized partially by Larry Will and AW, now offering a fall pirate special at $10/hour for a minimum of two hours --- avoid getting busted with a 10-megadollar fine. Some time also available on 7490, but not 9330 or 3265; finally ends at 0107.

Here`s John Carver`s version: ``Tonight's show started on time on 7490. Allan and Angela in the studio. Opening talk concerned a statement about wanting to stuff Allan when he died. Allan said no. First phone call at 0005 from Ramsey, pointing out to Allan that Roy Rogers had Trigger stuffed when he died. Discussion about having people stuffed and then one on preserving people's heads after they died.

There has been some support from the old Ampegon company starting to trickle through. They've sent an engineer from Germany who has been helping them adjust the antenna. A chain that is used during the antenna change broke. Angela found a man in North Carolina who could duplicate the chain. Was shipped out before the hurricane and Allan and John had to go forty feet above ground to install the chain. They had to modify the antenna adjustment plate for the new chain to work but it's working properly now.

Long discussion about how poorly digital and computerized things work and how Allan wishes they would be built the old way. Reading of emails at 0054 beginning with the Free Radio Weekly. Closing prayer at 0101. It was announced that they have a special on airtime on 5130. Two hour minimum time slot at ten dollars per hour. Program was off the air at 0106 and then into Brother Stair. Despite the signal reports this evening I had a poor signal or no signal on the frequencies I tried. John, Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
