Glenn Hauser logs November 22-, 2019

** BOLIVIA [non]. Art Delibert replies to my last report:

``Glenn -- Regarding your report on the JBA on 6134.819 which you assume is Radio Santa Cruz, Bolivia, I have found lately that Radio Aparecida, Brazil, is sometimes on 6135.12 and sometimes on 6134.83. Santa Cruz, when it's on, is on 6134.88. On 11/19, I had a very good signal on 6134.83 from 0200, which was clearly in Portuguese. I went to Radio Aparecida's website and listened in; it was the same programming that I was hearing on 6134.83, except 15 seconds behind. Regards, Art Delibert, North Bethesda, MD, Ten Tec RX-340; SAL-12 antenna`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. Re my log on 15155 of AWR, Peter W Hansen replies: 

``Hi Glenn, This broadcast from AWR is from Madagascar Sun - Fri; and from Trincomalee on Saturdays as per HFCC AWR file & the AWR web site. The Saturday broadcast has been best heard in Brazil, and the Sun-Fri has been best heard in South Africa and Bonaire.`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

I appreciate such correxions when necessary. And another:

** OKLAHOMA. Enid Earthquake follow-up: as usually happens, USGS revised its earliest info, originally 4.0 and 15 km east. Now:

``3.6 magnitude, 15 km ESE of Enid, Oklahoma, 2019-11-22 05:44:36 (UTC), 8.8 km deep``

However, this remains greater than any of the other North American region quaxe of the last 24 hours, multiples around PR and DR, CA and NV. We Okies can remain proud.

I must also revise my `certain` timing of the shock arrival at our place in Enid to: 0544:46 UT, i.e. 10 seconds later as would be expected this far from the epicenter.

USGS adds an aftershock, which we did not feel: ``2.5 mag., 15 km E of Enid, Oklahoma, 2019-11-22 06:14:19 (UTC), 8.8 km deep.`` (Glenn Hauser, Enid,, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Meanwhile Turkish service is in well with music on 15350; after 1400 on 11815 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VATICAN. 13830, Nov 22 at 1529, repeating orchestral IS of a few notes, vaguely familiar, S9-S7; 1530 ``Laudetur Iesus Christus`` a dead giveaway it`s VR, and into Amharic as scheduled direct from SMG at 139 degrees; to be followed at 1600 by Swahili, rotated another 11 degrees clockwise. VR continues to serve well non-targets. Of course, the IS is a version I had not noticed before of the old ``Christus Vincit``, which is no longer mentioned by name or tune in the WRTH of 2019 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11802-USB, Nov 22 at 1404, 2-way in colloquial Spanish INTRUDERS, immediately with expletives such as ``coño`` and ``puta`` and whistling (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
