Glenn Hauser logs November 30, 2019

** CUBA. 13634 & 13766 approx., Nov 30 at 1526, RHC 13700 is putting out these not very strong spurblobs on FM/AM/F#, none audible beyond. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTHERN MARIANA ISLANDS. 9905.030, Nov 30 at 1609, S4-S5 Chinese talk so I bet it`s SAIPAN, well-known for frequency laxness. Yes, exactly, this hour only on weekends, Radio Free Asia (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. I hardly need antennaweb to show me which TV stations I can pick up, but I decided to find out what they would say:

RF Channel 17
(10 miles at 274.47°)
1 Total Channels [sic]

Ha ha, that is the only ``local`` signal (altho it claims to be on channel 41 in faraway Ardmore); but Enid easily watches TV channels from OKC with outside/rooftop antennas, or even carefully positioned rabbit ears, distance roughly 65 miles. What do they know? If aim of this site be to sell antennas, they are failing miserably. Seems to be part of titantv listings (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 91.7, Nov 30, time not noted, one of the constantly repeating promos for KOSU financial support mentions that, ahem, all things considered, it costs $285 per hour for KOSU to operate. One seldom hears such a figure from public -- or any -- radio stations, so I wonder how it compare to others; and exactly how they computed it. Presumably includes opcosts for relays KOSN, KOSR, translators (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U A E. 11655.116, Nov 30 at 1603, VP talk way off-frequency. Of course, scheduled here at 1600-1630 only is IBRA Radio/Radio Ibrahim, in Afar via dha where something is always wrong with their frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2010 monitoring: almost confirmed Saturday November 30 at 2050 the 2030v on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO. I do have a JBA signal with talk rather like my ``monotone``, but blocked by heavy local line noise which still infests this part of the spectrum. Next:

0400vUT Sunday    WA0RCR 1860-AM [nominal 0415]
2130 UT Sunday    WRMI 7780 to NE
0130 UT Monday    WRMI 7780 to NE
0230 UT Monday    WRMI 7780 to NE, 9395 to NNW
0400vUT Monday    WBCQ 5130v Area 51 6160v? to WSW
0430 UT Monday    WRMI 9955 to SSE
1900vUT Monday    IRRS 7290 Romania? to WNW
0100 UT Tuesday   WRMI 7780 to NE
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday  WRMI 7780 to NE

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

** U S A. 1010, Nov 30 at 0700 UT, ID for KBBW Waco and several FMs, ``Legendary 10-10 AM everywhere in central Texas``. KBBW night pattern has two tight lobes at 160 and 290 degrees, hardly anything thisaway. Day pattern not much better for us, very minor lobe at 350, broad major lobe at 170. FCC info does not mention any translators or FM affiliates. But website is headed:

``KBBW 1010 AM 105.7 FM 101.3 FM 100.3 FM - Life Changing ..
105.7 FM in Waco, 101.3 FM in Killeen-Temple, 
100.3 FM in Georgetown-Round Rock-Cedar Park
and everywhere on the legendary 1010 AM. 
Keep Boldly Believing the Word``
Yes, it`s 100% gospel huxtering. Website is nothing but a program sked. See also unID 1010 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VATICAN [non]. 5930, Nov 30 at 1520, Asian language at S6-S9. Aoki shows it`s VR via USAGM Tinang, PHILIPPINES, in Malayalam; thus violating Separation of Church and State (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1010, Nov 30 at 0659 UT just before full ID for KBBW Waco TX, q.v., I hear another ID sounding like KGJO -- but no such listing nor anything fuzzily similar to be found in NRC AM Log, or FCC AM Query. Nor is there any such call on FM in case that were a reference. Ideas? (Glenn Hauser, OK,, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1521, Nov 30 circa 1840 UT = local mean noon, ~1 kHz het upon 1520 KOKC, on caradio, but it`s fleeting. IIRC last winter there were signs of this in broad daylight, and it seemed not inconceivable that with low winter suns, the two megawatts from Sa`udi Arabia could be skywaving such a trace this far, this early. But then there`s that other off-frequency American, much closer (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6030, Nov 30 at 1521, JBA carrier -- could it be CFVP reactivated? Other 6030s active at this time per Aoki:
6030 1430-1530 IND AIR VOICE OF KASHMIR     Kas Delhi (King 1-7  
6030 0900-1805 CHN CNR 1 (DRM) 3FF          Chi Beijing 572 1-7  
6030 0345-1700 CAF Radio ICDI               Fre Boali       1-7  
6030 1100-1530 ETH Radio Oromiya            Afa Addis Ababa 17   
6030 1530-2000 ETH Radio Oromiya            Afa Addis Ababa 1-7  
Of those, I suppose Delhi most likely (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
