FM DX Logs from NW PA  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, May 22 2018

Logs
The most "productive" day of DX'ing this week was probably Thursday, with
several new stations logged. I did have some good logs from other parts of
the week, including some new stations. This is NOT everything I've logged
by any means but ere are my favorite/best logs of the last week or so

Ridgway, Pennsylvania. (NW corner of the state)
2000 feet in elevation
modified Sony XDRF1HD radio
Kathrein Scala YA7 5 element yagi antenna
Audio form the RCA outputs of the radio is fed directly to the line in of
the Zoom H1 digital recorder.

NEW! CJDV-FM 107.5 Cambridge, Ont (Kitchener) 6KW Max ERP at 226 feet, 155
miles. This station is directional and actually puts only 2.591KW in my
direction. Heard Thursday May 17th at 653am with local spots, a liner,
music, DJ chatter and local news. Pretty darn good signal at times. Audio

NEW! CHIN-FM 100.7 Toronto, Ont. 8.5KW at 1379 feet, about 165 miles. I

Logs
** CHINA. 11460, May 21 at 1341 JBA talk, matching CNR1 jammer on much stronger 11540, the latter vs RFA Tibetan via Kuwait, while Aoki/NDXC shows *jammed Sound of Hope, Taiwan, on 11459.844 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11880, May 20 at 2207, this is today`s missing RHC frequency, where something is always wrong: supposed to be in French from 2200. Plenty of others on band in Spanish: 11760, 11840, 11860, 12000; and 11700 Portuguese..

6060, May 21 at 0619, now this is the missing frequency, leaving off-frequency-minus carrier from Brasil, while RHC English maintains 6000, 6100, 6165. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13901, 13835, 13767, 13633, 13567, 13499, 13437, 13363, 13300, very approx., May 21 at 1319-1335+, RHC spurblobs out of 13700 transmitter are back! Awful wobble with BFO, but closest ones somewhat clear when tuned in FM or even AM modes. Fundamental 13700 is S9+40, and 13767 is S9+25. All with signature F# above C-middle tone, and that is about all one can detect at the furthest ones out.

Checking almost every morning, last date these appeared was April 16, exactly one pentaweek ago. I *knew* they would come back sometime. Something`s always (very!) wrong at RHC.

During this hour separate RHC is also on 13740, and from 13700 produces a leapfrog on 13780 at 1320 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6935.666-AM, May 21 at 0058, very off-frequency pirate music, S6-S8 vs storm noise as loud. These logs from *0051 to 0122* say ID at 0116 was Man Cave Radio; wrong frequency as subject, ``6535.8``:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,42749.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1930 monitoring: confirmed Sunday May 20 at 1923, the newish 1900 airing on WRMI 9395, poor-fair. Not confirmed, Sunday May 20 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330v, as BS continues (should I delete 9330 from my schedules? Not shown up for a while, but has returned before and WBCQ will not tell me what to expect).

Confirmed UT Monday May 21 at 0130 on WRMI, 5850 VG, 7780 poor. Also confirmed UT Monday May 21 from 0303 on Area 51 webcast (after an 0302 false start of HRI, and a canned ``technical difficulties`` announcement); also poorly audible at 0318 check on WBCQ 5129.82. Also confirmed UT Monday May 21 at 0330 on WRMI, 9955, JBA. Next:
Mon 2330 WBCQ 9330v to WSW [maybe]
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030 WRMI 7780 to NE, 5950 to WNW [or #1931?]
Tue 2130 WRMI 7780 to NE, 5950 to WNW [or #1931?]

Full schedule for WOR on all outlets, not just SW; podcast linx:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9455, May 20 at 1923, 2201 chex, JBA carrier, presumed still secret QRP WRMI transmission as IDed previously. As of May 21, there is still no mention of 9455 anywhere on the WRMI transmission or program grids at
http://www.tinyurl.com/WRMIfqs
9395 is always on with much stronger signal: Sun May 20 at 1923 with WOR; 2201 with Oldies at S9+10.

9955, Sunday May 20 at 2207, AWR Wavescan in progress, with pulse jamming; tnx a lot, Arnie! Skedgrid shows this hour is supposed to be // 5950, but VP signal there is not // (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5050, UT Monday May 21 at 0104, finally catch WWRB on its rarely active summer frequency instead of 90m --- music and then overmodulated/distorted gospel huxter, horrible sounding, also cutting out, S9+20/30, giving contact info but so bad I can`t copy it accurately even tho partly spelt fonetikaly, P O Box 1471?, --- North Carolina 28456; email sounds like wdav â something @yahoo.com. Definite ZIP 28456 is Riegelwood NC, in the SE part of the state.

I soon reconfirm it`s pointless to consult http://www.wwrb.org which at the top still claims to be on 3215/3185, and no program schedule (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505v, May 21 at 0616, WRNO is off again (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1611 UT May 21

** AUSTRALIA [and non]. 6230-USB, May 20 at 1231, marine weather in English, i.e. VMW Wiluna WA. There is also some other USB CCI, seems Spanish; and a tone. This is also a Sound of Hope, Taiwan frequency, per EiBi, but no jammer shown there. Aoki/NDXC does have it *jammed, with SOH on 6229.941, while not covering a ute like VMW. Where is Wiluna, anyway? It`s far from the coast, 947 km NE of Perth:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wiluna,_Western_Australia
Presumably situated there to be at an optimum skip distance from the WA coasts (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 11640, May 20 at 1321, fine performance of Dvorak`s New World Symphony, but a faster tempo than we are accustomed to, no doubt a Chinese orchestra thing, during the CNR1 Sunday-night serious-music hour featuring Western classical pieces. Ends at 1335 and Chinese announcement. Is it usually longer than 35 minutes? It`s surprisingly difficult to search out performance/recording durations. Also same on 9680 and 9660. Unfortunately, this great piece is being used by the ChiCom as a JAMMER vs inaudible victims: all three Radio Taiwan International in Chinese (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11860, May 19 at 2230, RHC is off, while sometimes it`s on with Spanish at 21-23. Something`s always wrong at RHC. No Yemen [non] to be heard anyway.

9535, May 20 at 0112 check, RHC is back on original frequency, ex-9530 where it had jumped 24 hours earlier.

13700 & 13740, Sunday May 20 at 1335, RHC active on both with squeals, far-left-slanted, anti-imperio news headlines about Bolivia and Ecuador supporting Venezuelan ``elexions``; `En Contacto` starting late almost 1338, first item about a PEI lighthouse activated (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7470, May 20 at 0538, YHWH is on and audible (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 530 kHz, May 19 circa 1930 UT, I am driving along Rupe street near Vance AFB, so try to hear K530AM on caradio --- not a bit of it vs high storm noise level. Back home with a BFO I can tell the carrier is still on, 1229 UT check May 20 (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 338 kHz, May 20 at 1222 UT, ND beacon TU. I`ll bet it`s Tulsa --- yes, 30 watts per dxinfocentre. I don`t recall hearing this one before, yet a close one; is it always on? Post sunrise, after the storm noise has abated a bit, I am tuning for what I can pull through on LW. One other:

356 kHz, May 20 at 1225 UT, ND beacon PTT; let`s see, Pittsburg KS? NO, Pratt KS, 25 watts, heard before. I`m axually tuned to 354 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 7824.5-LSB, May 20 at 1237 UT, ham discussing 2m repeater frequencies, only one station audible, not his contacts. Must be another second harmonic from the 3.9 MHz band --- so check 3912.25 --- no, the same guy is really on 3912.50-LSB; why not an exact match? Evidently the NCS, but seldom mentions his own call. The other non-harmonicizing stations can be heard only on the fundamental.

Someone else, K5MRK, Mark, calls him W5AS, and finally his own ID at 1245. Refers to a store in Edmond, an event June 2, QCWA chapter 63 (but it sure sounded like they were saying QCWH). All about it here:
http://www.qcwa.org/qcwa063/index.html
Sunday at 7:30 am CT is the ``W5AS Memorial Net``, 3912.5 +/- 2 kHz
But I cannot find any individual name to go with call W5AS! ARRL/FCC:

CENTRAL OKLA CHAPTER 63 QCWA, W5AS (Club)
3509 PATTERSON DRIVE
EDMOND, OK 73013
ATTN: HOWARD O WISE JR
Trustee: WISE JR, HOWARD O, WD5IDB
Previous call sign: KC5QVX

However, the ch 63 website says: ``Sadly, Howard O. Wise, WD5IDB, former Net Manager became a SK on July 14, 2017``. The QRZ.com page for W5AS is even more out of date from September, 2015. So no telling who is now operating the harmonic-producing club station (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PHILIPPINES. 9380, May 20 at 1251, hymn in clear at S9-S7, no QRM, 1253 English outro as ``Fly Like an Eagle`` and into Chinese talk. We are counting the days until FEBC get around to moving to 9275 on May 27. Alok Dasgupta, Kolkata, explains on the dx_india yg, replying to my original report April 1:

``After several correspondence between 16th April and 27th April, Mr. Samuel E. Ponilas, Transmission Manager of FEBC in Manila informed that they're moving to 9275 effective 27th May 2018 at 1000-1600 in Chinese replacing 9380 as AIR is using this almost 24x7. FEBC moved to 9380 as 9430 is now reserved for IRDR project``

Ah, so: HFCC shows IRDR the only [non]-station officially on 9430: usual SMG CVA as placeholder, but only at 01-12, 13-14, 16-24 for all 85 CIRAF zones with 100 kW at 0 degrees (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1930 monitoring: Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria, confirms: ``GERMANY, Reception of World of Radio via HLR on 6190 CUSB, May 19:
http://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.bg/2018/05/reception-of-world-of-radio-via-hlr-on_19.html
0630-0700 6190 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg to CeEu English Sat, poor signal``

Not confirmed on WBCQ 9330v, Sat May 19 at 2130 or 2330, as Brother HyStairical rages on. Confirmed Sat May 19 at 2300 on WRMI 7780, poor.

Also confirmed UT Sun May 20 at 0200 on WRMI 7780, JBA --- so the revised program schedule is wrong for removing WOR from this airing. Also confirmed by Alan Gale, England: ``Hi Glenn, I can confirm that World of Radio 1930 is on 7780.0 kHz at 0200 UT on Sunday 20th of May; it's putting a very strong signal into the UK at the moment. 73 for now, Alan`` --- with a clip of exactly when I mention uncertainty about this emission. Glad to know it is doing well over there, even if in the middle of the night; get some sleep, Alan!

Also confirmed by Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria: ``GERMANY, Reception of World of Radio via HLR on 9485 kHz CUSB on May 20

** U S A. Correcting previous report which started with typo 7390.04:

7490.04 to 7490.03, UT Sat May 19 at 0001, WBCQ opening `Allan Weiner Worldwide` with ``William Tell Overture``, but soon apparent it`s another oldie playback, in fact the same one heard last night, despite AW claiming to be ``live`` --- should have edited that out; with girlfriend Angela and the WE mic; I thought that was from Feb, but at 0053 recheck he`s referring to Brother Scare having been arrested ``last month``, which was December. Unlike last week, this show is not duplicated on 9330 where BS continues. 5129.8 probably is // but a JBA carrier buried in the summer storm noise level (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9455, May 19 at 2218, secret WRMI transmission is still on here, with Oldies music at S7-S4, better than before, but still much weaker than 9395 at S9-S9+5, which also sounds like Oldies music but *not* // 9455. 9455 with definite WRMI IDs at 2220 & 2221 before and after Dish Network commercial (their only spot advertiser??). Listened to 9395 past 2231 with no announcements, until a Biermann ID at 2234.

9455 recheck May 20 at 1254, a JBA carrier, presumably still WRMI, as Bangladesh is not starting its Nepali until 1315.

As of May 19, no recent posts on WRMI FB where sometimes there is station news not available anywhere else. As of May 20, still nothing on the WRMI skedgrids about 9455 really being on the air! Searching http://tinyurl.com/WRMIfqs for 9455 gets no hits in the transmission or program schedules. And still no reply to my inquiry (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, May 19 at 2225, rare bit in Portuguese on WRMI, predicating/preaching in Luso, not Brasilian accent. Sked shows ``Frank y [sic] Ernest (Port)`` at 2315-2330 Sats. Believe besides the RAE relay at 11-12 M-F, this is the only other PP item on WRMI sked (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9930, Sat May 19 at 1830, WTWW-2 is active with Ted interviewing a YL who runs recnet and private FCC-info websites, fcc.today and fccdata.org --- thus she is an authority on FCC broadcast axions, not ham. Refers to Huntsville (AL, not TX!) hamfest, which was in August, maybe when/where this was recorded, rather than current Xenia hamfest. Never hear her name, as Ted doesn`t re-introduce guests in protracted chats, but must be Michelle Bradley per http://recnet.com/about --- Ends at 1906, and on to music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
