Glenn Hauser logs January 22-23, 2017  View Printable Version 
Monday, January 23 2017

Logs
** ANGUILLA. 11775, Jan 22 at 1406, no signal from so-called Caribbean Beacon on day frequency, altho night 6090 was reactivated earlier this UT date. There is something weak, which per Aoki could be AIR via GOA in Nepali until 1430, and/or CNR1 jamming of a 100-watt Sound of Hope nuisance transmitter on Taiwan possible during very long hours. (The main other 11775 is Algeria via France at 19-21). Still no AIA at 1615 Jan 22.

6090, Jan 23 at 0418 is on again at S9+40 level with distorted DGS, and some no-het CCI underneath, presumably ETHIOPIA.

11775, Jan 23 at 1406 check, again no AIA, but algo, see above. 11775 still off at 2000, no Algeria audible either (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, Jan 22 at 1420, JBA carrier half a sesquihour after sunrise here, NBC surviving the 7.9 earthquake nearby? However, RRI Palangkaraya is also on 3325, and Boug is normally off the air earlier. Can anyone confirm NBC still on? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 2598-USB, Jan 23 at 0446, YL in French intonation, S7 = noise level. Per Canadian CG sked in DXLD 16-43, final weather broadcasts before frequencies resuming in 3 hours are from:

0437 2598 VCF Les Escoumins from site Natashquan QC 50 08 40 -61 48 00

and also, but unheard:
0437 2749 VCF Les Escoumins from site LaVerniÃre QC 47 21 26 -61 55 36
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 15034-USB, Jan 22 at 1615, for at least the second day in a row, CHR, Trenton Military is totally dysfunxional, ``no report received`` over and over and over, from Gander, Halifax, Shearwater, Greenwood.

15034-USB, Jan 23 at 1424, for at least the third day in a row, CHR, Trenton Military continues totally dysfunxional, ``no report received`` over and over and over, from Edmonton, Calgary, Cold Lake, Winnipeg. 1425 introduces ``terminal forecasts`` but same quartet devoid of any info. 1426, mis-timecheck as ``1325 zulu``, no reports received from: Comox, Victoria, Vancouver, Abbotsford; ``repeating aviation weather``, ditto. Usual good S9 signal now, but before 1400 I had zero signal, not on or totally unpropagating?

15034-USB, one more check Jan 23 at 2000: no change (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5025, Jan 23 at 0425, R. Rebelde is absent; and 4765 is a JBA carrier, not R. Progreso? Propagation this band is OK, with 5040 RHC English S9+40!

17750, Jan 23 at 1429, S9+10 of dead air, then JBM IS and talk, but there is NO signal on normally much louder // 17730; while // 17580 is on at S9+10 with good mod (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** FRANCE. 5938-5978, Jan 23 at 0420, approx. range of splatter at modulation spikes out of 5960, NHK in Japanese, which is 500 kW, 290 degrees from Issoudun at 03-05. Haven`t noticed such a problem from this transmitter before, and I hope, not again (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9420, Sunday Jan 22, VP S2 signal, but recognizable as Orthodox chanting, as VOG is starting to make it. Hope this uppick as spring oncomes, nice music violating Separation of Church and State (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN. 9500, Jan 23 at 1418, S4 talk in uncertain language, fanfare and off 1420*, smacking of VIRI, and so it is, per HFCC in Urdu, due east from Sirjan (not until only 1350 as in Aoki) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 770, UT Mon Jan 23 at 0438, ``desde todo el equipo de Luces de la Ciudad`` birthday greetings; on to actividades ``en el sector chino de nuestra ciudad`` for Chinese New Year imminent, also mentions Zona Rosa (which I suppose exist elsewhere than the DF), boletos disponibles. Typically this would be XEACH, Monterrey NL, with KKOB/KKOB easily nulled. This is during the local-content cutaway from `La Hora Nacional` aprovechado by many stations, but they seem to think ``nuestra ciudad`` is sufficient identification. There might be same programming on 570, 630, 900, 990, 1050, 1140, but no exact matches (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MYANMAR [non]. 11795, Jan 23 at 1408, S9 tonal language conversation, and some squeal on the modulation. It`s RFA Burmese, 1230-1430, 250 kW, 280 degrees via TINIAN per HFCC, no longer Iranawila, Sri Lanka, as in Aoki (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NAMIBIA. 7156-LSB, Jan 23 at 0449, V51B, Andre, working K0OL in English. QRZ.com lookup has lots of photos of his antennas, mostly quads, and says SWL reports are welcome for QSL: ``Andre Pretorius V51B, P.O. Box 626, Oranjemund, NAMIBIA, Africa``. O, that Namibia, the one in Africa. I suppose he`s an Afrikaaner with that Latinate name (Glenn Hauser, OK, the one in North America, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 11725, UT Sunday Jan 22 at 0655, RNZI is wrapping up TED talks. It`s SHAMEFUL that not a single US SW station, private or public, is willing to broadcast such excellent programming as available on public radio in the US. We have to get it from NZ!!!! Is it every Sunday at 0605 UT? Check the RNZI program schedule, click on Sunday and this is the link with correct date:
http://www.radionz.co.nz/international/schedules/international.20170122

Trouble is, the page stays on the current day`s sked, which is Tuesday! So we have to go to RNZ National for correct daily info including for Sunday night NZDT:

7:05 PM. The TED Radio Hour
A crafted hour of ideas worth sharing presented by Guy Raz (NPR)
http://www.radionz.co.nz/national/programmes/ted

0655 UT, RNZI announcer mentions 7.9 earthquake in Bougainville, music fill until news at 0700. Usual VG signal. 0705 mentions possibility of tsunami in PNG, Solomons. 0706 on to next show, one of my favourites, but it starts too late for CST zone:

8:06 PM. Sunday Night with Grant Walker [until 0900 UT]
An evening of music and nostalgia (RNZ) [song requests back to 1940s]
http://www.radionz.co.nz/national/programmes/sunday-night

11725 now, and normally, has the best signal on 25m after 0600, even better than 11780 Brasil. Australia is essentially useless on too-high
15 and 17 MHz frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAO TOME. 4960, Jan 23 at 0627, S6 open carrier or JBM? Past 0630, off at 0632. VOA Pinheira is scheduled until 0630 in French M-F, break, and then 0700- daily in Hausa, both 100 kW at 30 degrees (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SWAZILAND. 6120, Jan 23 at 0506, American English religious discussion about children at S9+, i.e. TWR Manzini, 50 kW, 233 degrees at 0501-0700 for B16 in Aoki (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 6080, Jan 23 at 0419, VOT English is S9+10, fair signal but not easy copy; more of a problem than co-channel VOA SÃo Tomà is splatter from distorted 6090 Anguilla reactivated (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UGANDA [non]. 15240, Sunday Jan 22 at 1615, JBA carrier; by 1752 up to S9+10 with presumed Luganda talk from R. Munansi via WWRB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3885.27-AM, WA1HLR, Timtron in Maine discussing equipment as usual, QRM from another carrier about 3884.82; and his alternating contact, also AM, is on another frequency, 3884.70, WA1KNX. If I copied that correctly, he is not in New England at all, but MC GORRILL, DEAN H, 5445 S. Butts RD, TUCSON, AZ 85757. If they disdain SSB, too bad they don`t zero-beat their AMs. Anyhow, WA1HLR`s ham transmitter has a much stronger signal than any WBCQ broadcast signal now. I imagine that when he`s at WBCQ, he hooks up to one of those antennas, as there is no limit to antenna gain hams may legally use, only to transmitter power (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3908-LSB, Jan 23 at 0455, pileup of at least 3 stations at once, plus some CW QRM. One group are trying to have net QSOs, while repeatedly interrupted by apparent loop saying exactly the same thing, ``W6WBJ, to become a full member of the organization, please``
W6WBJ per FCC ULS is: CROWELL, WILLIAM F, 1110 PLEASANT VALLEY RD., DIAMOND SPRINGS, CA 95619. He seems to be calling the NCS, KJ6JKA, who is: Young Jr, Willard E, 8362 Edam Circle, Huntington Beach, CA 92647.

The organization mentioned is WARFA, Western Amateur Radio Friendship Association, and this is it:
http://warfa.org/

``"Communicating With The World Through Friendship" on 3908 kHz Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday at 8 pm PT (standard [0400 UT Mon/Wed/Fri] or daylight) Established in 1976, this group of amateur radio operators started as a RV owning fishing group. They would visit various locations in California and drop their lines for that big catch`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1861 monitoring: confirmed UT Sunday Jan 22 at 0429 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO, about four minutes in, so did not start until 0425; fair vs storm static crashes. Also confirmed UT Monday Jan 23 at 0030 on WBCQ 9330-CUSB, very poor. Also confirmed starting at 0402 UT Monday Jan 23, S8 on Area 51 via WBCQ 5129.82. Also confirmed at 0447 Jan 23 the UT Monday 0430 on WRMI 9955, very poor S4-S5 vs pulse jamming; tnx a lot, Arnie! Next:
Tue 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 1200 WRMI 9955 to SSE, 6855 to WNW
Tue 2130 WRMI 15770 to NE
Tue 2300 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Wed 1030 WRMI 5850 to NW, 6855 to WNW
Wed 1415.5 WRMI 9955 to SSE, 6855 to WNW
Wed 2200 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Thu 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. 9955, Jan 23 at 0413, WRMI music is poor S6-S7 vs pulse jamming. Yet, 9790 CRI via CUBA manages S9+40 signal (and no jamming! tho habitually undermodulated). Similar distance and slightly further south. Bigger transmitter and higher-gain antennas aimed our way make all the difference (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490, Jan 23 at 0410, WBCQ but a JBA carrier, and no signal on 9330v-CUSB, while WINB is only JBA on 9265 (but 5129.82 is fairly audible with WOR). Very low MUF tonight: WBCQ needs to hurry up and get 3250v into full service, full power; but not going to this winter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also WA1HLR log

** U S A. 7505vv, Jan 23 at 0410, WRNO is still AWOL (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15555-USB, Jan 23 at 1537 and 2000 chex, no signal from WJHR. Really, I haven`t heard it in quite some time. Due to low power and lousy propagation, not always evidence it`s off, but when did anyone last hear it? Nominal sked is 14-22 UT daily. Last logs preserved in DXLD, or in my inbox were Dec 27:

``15555, USB. WJHR, Radio International, Milton FL; Dec 27 at 1625. English. Full ID at 1703, OM Bible discussion. Audio:
https://clyp.it/ufuv5von (Dino Bloise, Miami [FL], USA), JRC 545 + Longwire, dxldyg via DX LISTENING DIGEST) And strong here in NB at about 1945 UT. But I have to ask the question: How many listeners does he have? (-- Richard Langley, ibid.)`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 840, Jan 23 at 0437 UT, Spanish station in total null of WHAS. I figure it`s KVJY Pharr TX, as heard a few times before, but what I get does not match up to last known info about it. ``La mejor alternativa, 107.9, la palabra de dios, levantando una nueva generaciÃn``, into praise music.

As of November, logged by Terry Krueger, KVJY was // Ultra 104.9 FM, with pop music format. http://www.ultra1049.com/ still appends 840 on its home page. Maybe has really changed format/FM relayer again. Slogans and format do not match up to any likely Mexicans either.

The 107.9 in the RGV is KVLY EDINBURG TX 100.0 kW, 257.0 m, MIX 107.9 ADULT CONTEMPORARY, per WTFDA Database, and no match to // 840. Note the similarity in calls http://mix1079.net/ but ownership is different. If this is the source for 840 now, it too would have to be a drastic format-change.

There are only two other US 840s this could possibly be, both of which are listed as religious, but not Spanish, and are daytimers: KDLF Ball LA, and WBHY Mobile AL (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9130, Jan 23 at 1422, weak talk at S2-S3; nothing listed in Aoki, but perhaps a new jammed Sound of Hope frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15436-USB, Jan 22 at 1504, INTRUDERS 2-way in Spanish here again 24 hours after last log; today, not much signal from 15435 BSKSA. Another 24 hours later, Jan 23 at 1508, no SSB and BSKSA is quite strong at S9+10 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

MYANMAR/CHINA/MALAYSIA Log at eastern Thailand
remote SDR unit at 23.50 Jan 21 til 00.45 UT on Jan 22:


Noted on MMR Yegu 5985.100 (!) exact kHz channel again,
from probably former capital Yangoon bc site.


5985.100 and 6029.994 kHz both Myanmar Radio channels are the most

Subject: [dxld] RE: Myanmar off frequency

Hi Wolfie,
Could it be that Myanmar's exact frequency transmitter (5985.00)
is having problems now, as you noted them off the air on Jan 20?
Could they have reactivated the old mothballed off frequency
transmitter, to fill in while they repair the 5985.00 transmitter?
Just speculating!

Jan 21, heard on about 5985.15, at 1441, in vernacular with on air
phone chat; seemed not nearly as strong as the exact frequency
transmitter; by 1541, very weak signal. Needs more monitoring
to determine what is happening here.

Thanks, Wolfie, for your alert that something different was going
on!

Logs
** ANGUILLA. 6090, Jan 22 at 0133, Oh oh, so-called Caribbean Beacon is reactivated after absence since at least Jan 8, both from 6090 and day frequency 11775. DGS is just as distorted as ever, if not worse! So they didn`t take the opportunity to fix the transmitter. // non-distorted 5935 WWCR fed from same satellite. Engineering there leaves a bit to be desired, but if it drive away listeners to this nonsense, some purpose is served. However, back to blocking the other innocent occupants of these frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 15034-USB, Jan 21 at 1508, Trenton Military robot is stuck in loops, over and over and over: ``Break, Halifax, Halifax, no report received. Break, Shearwater, Shearwater, no report received. Break, Greenwood, Greenwood, no report received. Break, Gander, Gander, no report received.`` At 1525 retune, another pair from another quartet of NRR`s, Winnipeg, Edmonton.

At 1526 UT: ``Time: 1425 zulu``, so they are STILL announcing time 61 minutes slow. They must not be reading my previous reports, risky business not to do so. At 1527 the aviation non-weather moves on to NRR`s in same format from Comox, Victoria, Vancouver, Abbotsford. At 1537: Prestwick, Keflavik, Lajes, Shannon. At 1559, back to Abbotsford, Comox, Victoria, Vancouver. Breather for me. 1811: Gander, Halifax, Shearwater, Greenwood. 2112: still/again same quartet. 2214 ditto.

CHR transmissions have been totally useless all day! And no one at station notices to fix it. Pity the poor Canadian taxpayer, let alone flights in urgent need of VOLMET! Or maybe there really aren`t any?

6754-USB, Jan 22 at 0130, yup, CHR night frequency, poor S7, is also still ``no report received`` from Lajes, Shannon, Prestwick, Keflavik (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, Jan 22 at 0135, RHC English is JBM, much softer than // 6165, both with same strength of S9+25, the latter being much louder but more fadey (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUATEMALA. 4055, Jan 22 at 0142, TGAV is OFF! Had been reliable for quite a while. 0202 recheck, now carrier is on at S9+20 (vs storm crashes to S9+30), but dead air. Maybe they`ll be back in business in time for another late start of an `Antena DX` rerun circa 0215 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 17640, Jan 21 at 1814, MWV English is on today, but only fair signal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6940-USB, Jan 22 at 0127, soul music at S9+25 (which is louder and stronger than the ``Mighty`` KBC via Germany on 6145), must be Wolverine Radio. Yes, 0133 echoing ID as such, and into SSTV for 3 or 4 minutes, after which at 0137 frequency change announcement repeated, to ``4020, let people know on chat groups, see you there in a couple of minutes``, and off 6940.

4020-USB, Jan 22 from *0140, Wolverine Radio just moved from 6940; about same S9+25 level, but more storm noise down here, so no improvement for us (nearest lightning storms are in SW and S Arkansas/N Louisiana). ID comes after a bit of music first, then some big band music. One song had mentioned pants; was that the theme tonight? 0146 ID, ``Baby, It`s Cold Outside``, another ID at 0155, and still going past 0210+. Fortunately there was no MARS net on 4018, but one on 4041, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7405-AM, Jan 22 at 0150, [Station YHWH] is already on with usual stuff, citing Jeremiah XXII:5, S6-S7 and partially readable past 0210. 7405 was one of the first frequencies I discovered upon his 2015 reactivation, Dec 2 at 0447 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 12035, Jan 21 at 1426, VOT English hour is still on with IS alternating with language IDs, presumably Kazakh, which is scheduled to start at 1430 on 9785 (a frequency I can`t remember to check for presence when this happen time and again). 12035 is marred by splatter 12030-12115 from that horrible mess on 12050 which is WEWN. 12035 is still on for the 1430 precise timesignal and opening in presumed Kazakh. I wasn`t attentive exactly when 12035 finally went off, but it was circa 1442 after which 9785 presumably came up very late. Way to go, incompetents at Emirler! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UGANDA [non]. 15240, Sat Jan 21 at 1741, WWRB with good signal but dead air instead of R. Munansi clandestine. 1814 recheck, now poor carrier, but some modulation (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 4041.0-USB, Jan 22 at 0203, Army MARS net with YL NCS AAA7RD, call copied fonetikaly, vs storm noise level, check-ins not readable. This page http://usamars.us/rgn7/ says that call applies to the unnamed Region 7 Director, i.e. IA/KS/MO/NE. However a 2012 World Radio Online article photo caption identified that call with one John Halladay (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENNG DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1861 monitoring: I missed it on UTwente, but Nino Marabello, Italy, confirms at 1531 Sat Jan 21, WOR 1861 audible for a few minutes vs Hindi from China on 7265-CUSB. I do confirm the next SW airing, Sat Jan 21 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9330.125v-CUSB, S9+10. Next:
Sun 0410v WA0RCR 1860-AM ND
Sun 1130 HLR 9485-CUSB to SW
Mon 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Mon 0400v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW

Wed 2200 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Thu 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7730, Jan 21 at 0656, this WRMI is unusually absent, while BS on 7780 is VP, 7570 is VG, and 6855 is P with music, 5850 G with World Music. For the record, 7730 is back on Jan 22 at 0146 check, along with 7780, 7570 all BSing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330-CUSB, Jan 21 at 1741, poor signal but dead air instead of Brother HyStairical from WBCQ, now allegedly 24 hours. And to think, we could have been hearing Damascus, if Assad had kept his SW service going on 9330.

With 5130 also on air 12 hours each night, BS except when other stuff such as Area 51 is already scheduled, that appears to end Allan`s ``Radio Jennifer International`` service, active only briefly (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9930, Sat Jan 21 at 1941, WTWW-2 is just now ending `Theater Organ of the Ozarx` and on to `Amateur Radio Newsline #2047 for Jan 20``. Hummy distorted signal.

5085, UT Sun Jan 22 at 0205, repeat of TOOTO is also airing, with cabaret conversations in the background, S9+50 but some storm noise from Arkansas still audible, as well as the spurs circa 5072.1 and 5097.9 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505v, Jan 22 at 0150, 0210, no show from WRNO tonight, but a JBA carrier, presumably INDIA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7676.50-USB, Jan 22 at 0147, non-intruding 2-way in Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15436-USB, Jan 21 at 1508, INTRUDER, 2-way in Spanish, too close to 15435 BSKSA`s 500 kW aimed 320 degrees right at us. Spanish also has music in background sounding like off-tuned, as if bleed from Saudi, but it`s talking. Then music from Riyadh adds to the mess. Still going at 1528.

I continue to be amazed that no other SWBC monitors ever report these in-band, usually Spanish, intruders. They may not be identifiable, but at least one of us is documenting them. Log editors are no help either, by not publishing them, as if off-topic? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs
** CUBA. 17730, Jan 20 at 2235, RHC is open carrier/dead air, still at 2253. Supposed to be in French at this time.

15370, Jan 20 at 2237, RHC Spanish with correct 5:37 TC, apologizing for ``dificuldades`` preventing `Informativo Nuestra AmÃrica` but instead a bit of Moncada group music, and ordinary noticias titulares. Rare to hear them apologizing for SNAFUs, but in the studio they don`t know how mixed up the transmitters can be, lest they be apologizing all the time! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6930-USB, Jan 20 at 2246, S8 pirate music, vamping two notes alternating with a lot of percussion, then more melody. By 2256 much louder now hitting S9; 2301 insert ID ``X-L-R-8``, more music. Larry Will in Maryland was also hearing this at 2312, S5 rock/punk music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PHILIPPINES. 9455, Jan 20 at 2255, ``Jesus Saves`` IS and unID language announcements alternating, poor S6 on an abandoned WRMI frequency, so this is FEBC, 100 kW, 280 degrees from Bocaue, 2300-2330 in Iu Mien per Aoki. Time to learn about another tongue only the missionaries care about broadcasting: per EiBi readme.txt, spoken by 400 kilopersons each in Vietnam and S China, a.k.a. merely Mien, abbr`d MIE or [ium] (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1861 monitoring: confirmed Friday January 20 inaugurating a new tri-frequency time, after a Rudy Espinal WRMI ID, at 2230 on 6855 & 5950 at S9, and // 11580 at S9+22. (After 2300 they all split apart: 5950 AWR Spanish, 6855 music, 11580 Viva Miami Spanish). WOR also confirmed UT Saturday Jan 21 after 0030 on WBCQ 9330, fair at S8. Next:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330v-CUSB, Jan 20 at 1850, WBCQ is still BSing, i.e. The Overcomer, nothing special from the inauguration, as Allan Weiner allegedly had planned; and 7490 is off, altho something was barely audible there a couple hours earlier. At 1945, 9330 is still BS. After 2100, 7490 is on with usual Financial Survival show.

At 2232, I time 9330 BS running 9 or 10 seconds behind himself on 7780 WRMI; while 7490 is amid usual Friday show, `Behavior Night` of early recorded music, S9+30; and 5130 is not on yet. At 2301, 5129.8-AM is now on with BS, and during this hour, Brother HyStairical is on all three `BCQ transmitters, plus 7490, 9330.06. He is talking about Bush and Blair as if they were still in office, and gives the date as Wednesday October 10. What year would that be? It could have been 2001y or 2007y. Railing against the imminent imposition of a New World Order to be controlled from Germany; yeah, right.

Meanwhile I`ve heard from webmaster Larry Will about added BS hours:

``Hello Glenn, Brother Stair has once again bought up all the available time on WBCQ. Robert at the station shared with us the revised transmitter schedule for each of the WBCQ services. You can infer from this that Brother Stair will be on these frequencies if that service is not already dedicated to other programming. I'm assuming that the WOR broadcasts on 9330 will continue, though I will follow up with Robert to be sure. I'll get the online schedule updated shortly. Regards, Lw``

And Robert had sent this:
Shortwave: Daily transmitter schedule - as of Thursday 1/19/2017 [EST]

<< 9330 >> 7 days ...... ON 24/7 ............ OFF <never!>
<< 5130 >> 7 days ...... ON 6pm ............. OFF 6am [23-11 UT]
<< 7490 >> 7 days ...... ON (see below) ..... OFF 3am [ -08 UT]

Mon ....... ON 4pm (Melody) [21- ]
Tue ....... ON 3pm (WHVW) [20- ]
Wed ....... ON 4pm (Melody)
Thu ....... ON 4pm (Melody)
Fri ....... ON 4pm (Melody)
Sat ....... ON 6pm (JP) [23- ]
Sun ....... ON 5pm (Marion) [22- ]

[Note: Start times may change for monthly shows - None scheduled currently] Thanks, Robert, -- W.B.C.Q.``

7490, UT Sat Jan 21 at 0106 tune-in to WBCQ for `Allan Weiner Worldwide` and hear acting president Thump`s inaugural address, contracted, as the applause has been edited out (except where it overlaps). Finished at 0117, it`s not AW, but Brad and Valerie filling in this week from the echoey GRITS studio, inviting calls to 1-508-316-3975. They go on to critique the Leader, certainly not what AW himself would have done; no calls yet, so 0123 to a song parodying Trump.

GRITS` own time is UT Mon 00-01 on 5130v, i.e. vs 60 Minutes on CBS, so we should listen to their podcasts linked via:
http://gritsradio.blogspot.com/
Stands for Ghost Riders In The Sky. Now, 5130 is off, and 9330 is Blalocking (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
