Glenn Hauser logs January 21-22, 2017


** 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
Mon 0430   WRMI 9955 to SSE
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. 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)

Glenn Hauser logs January 20-21, 2017


** 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 América` 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)

** 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
<< 5130 >>   7 days ...... ON 6pm ............. OFF 6am [23-11 UT]

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.

Propagation News – 22 January 2017

We saw a couple of sunspots last week, but they weren’t enough to make a major difference to HF propagation. This was due in part to a raised K-index, thanks to solar material from a recurrent coronal hole. NOAA released a geomagnetic storm warning for the 18th and 19th. The solar index remained in the high 70s, while the K-index hit four around mid week.

While many people are bemoaning the poor conditions, there are highlights. Seventeen metres is opening reliably to DX on many days with strong signals to the east during late morning and weak openings to the west in the afternoon. Andy, M0NKR also reports there have been some good 80m openings to the US and Canada in the early hours. Eighty metres was also good for inter-G work late afternoon on Thursday the 19th.

Next week, NOAA predicts that the poor geomagnetic conditions are likely to continue, with the K-index hitting four at times, although the 25th and 26th should be slightly more settled. The solar flux index will be in the range 77 to 80, so propagation is likely to be more of the same. We recommend concentrating on the lower bands, but don’t give up on HF as we may get occasional HF openings up to, perhaps, 18 or 21MHz at times—please don’t miss them!

VHF and up:

We have just finished another week with high pressure on the chart, and it has produced some enhanced tropo conditions at times. But this has been less than might be the case if there were some moisture in the lower layers of the atmosphere. The better areas have been the north-west where moisture from the Atlantic and Biscay has improved the contrast across the inversion and given better tropo.

So what of next week? The high is going to last for just a few more days, until midweek, when the next sequence of Atlantic lows and fronts will cross the country. This will bring windier weather and some rain and destroy any tropo-producing inversions from our resident high, which will collapse quickly. In summary, a good start to the week, but poor for VHF/UHF tropo later.


We are now in the winter meteor activity minimum, where zenithal hourly rates are low and there are no major showers, but there are still opportunities for random meteor scatter contacts around dawn.
The Moon is at apogee today and reaches minimum declination on Thursday, so we have maximum losses and short, low-elevation moon windows all week. This week would be a good one to look to the artificial satellites for your VHF DX contacts.

** CHINA. 12035, Jan 20 at 0044, Chinese at fair S7 level, which is better than most signals on 25m, including weak RHC and WRMI. HFCC shows this is not a jammer! But CRI, 00-01, 500 kW, 200 degrees from Xian to SE Asia (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Since WBCQ has just expanded the Brother Scare hours on 9330, which TOM website vaguely designates as ``24hr Mostly``, I`m a bit concerned that WOR will no longer be appearing at 0030. But UT Fri Jan 20 I can still hear me on 9330.102v-CUSB, poor signal on the R75; at 0045 check on NRD-545, S6-S4 vs noise level of S5. Wolfgang Büschel was also checking various remote receivers in North America, and could not hear 9330! Next:

** U S A. 9330.153v-CUSB, Jan 19 at 2101, WBCQ is unusually on the air at this time, with Brother Scare! I bet he has been on all night and all day as I first noted past 0653. Still BS at 2304 check but faded to very poor level.

Checking the Overcomer website: Altho it still shows all the deleted WRMI frequencies, and among WWCR, on ``3.125``, it now shows for WBCQ:

Yes, 5129.8 WBCQ is also on now at 0046 Jan 20 with BS. Still at 0105, while 9330 is still with Blalock the Blaster during this hour. 

I`m not checking again until 0616, when I find BS still on 9330, but very poor, also 5129.8 VP; and 7490 is still on but with narration about Xmas and other holidays, which I soon recognize as Jean Shepherd! At 0700 WBCQ ID and switch 7490 to TOM. Now at 0700, 9330 is occupied by huge S9+20 signal from Cuban spy numbers as scheduled 4 days a week including Friday, and WBCQ cannot be detected underneath it but probably still on. 

Brief awakening at 1020, so I check again: 5129.8 with BS; nothing audible on 7490; 9330+ with JBA carrier. At 1525, 1539, 9330 is still BS. As of 1725 UT Jan 20, there is nothing on the WBCQ website about these expanded BS hours on all three frequencies!

Allan Weiner had said he and Dr Becker would be broadcasting from the inaugural in Washington ``all day`` Jan 20 on 7490 and 9330. 7490 of course belongs to WWCR until 1600 and WBCQ is registered for 7490 not until 1900.

The ceremonies start circa 1630. So check WBCQ again at 1653: 9330 is still Brother Scare! 7490 is on with a weak signal, music, not live coverage of the inswearing. O well. A few TV networks are covering one of the most disgusting events in American history (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490, UT Fri Jan 20 at 0046, WBCQ with `Broad Spectrum Radio` at S9+25, but fading down before finished. Sounds like Amy Goodman now in an excerpt from `Democracy Now!`, report on commutation of Chelsea Manning`s sentence (so why prolong it until May anyway?). Then James Branum quoting RHC website about commutation of López. JB provided in advance these

``Abbreviated show notes: In this episode…

1. News and Commentary about Obama’s last minute Presidential commutations and pardons, including those of

* Chelsea Manning, the longest held whistleblower in US history
* Óscar López Rivera, Puerto Rican freedom fighter

2. The activist community’s response to the inauguration of President Trump, including this weekend’s protests marches…

3. The moral necessity of ongoing nonviolent resistance…

** U S A. 6855, Fri Jan 20 at quick check 1021, WRMI with Ray Robinson speaking, so must be a Wavescan segment, // much stronger 5850, rather than FG Radio as scheduled. 7730 & 7780 are in BS now. Skedgrid shows System F at 10-11 both on 5850 and 6855, i.e. WORLD OF RADIO Wednesdays at 1030 should also be on both frequencies now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5755.00, Jan 20 at 0102, JBA carrier. No broadcasters are scheduled here; could it be YHWH? Not on 5792 at the moment, but earlier than he usually starts, and Ron Howard says he had shifted to 5790 when last heard (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

New President for Adventist World Radio

The Adventist World Radio (AWR) Board of Directors has elected Duane McKey as the new president of Adventist World Radio, replacing Dowell Chow, who has served as president for the past six years. McKey has been director of Sabbath School and Personal Ministries at the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, as well as assistant to the president for Total Member Involvement, since 2015. Prior to that, he was vice president of the Southwestern Union Conference in Texas, USA, and president of the Arizona Conference.

Chow is retiring in January, 2017, after 50 years of service to the Seventh-day Adventist Church in a variety of roles and countries. He first joined AWR in 2005, working as vice president for finance, before stepping into the role of president. Prior to that, he served in positions ranging from chief financial officer/treasurer of the Columbia Union Conference in Maryland, president of the New Jersey Conference, and stewardship, trust services and ministerial director, to senior pastor in Puerto Rico, and mission secretary/treasurer and Book & Bible house administrator in Venezuela. Over the years, he was an active member of multiple boards, including Washington Adventist University, Adventist Health, Washington Adventist Hospital, and additional health entities in New Jersey.

Dowell Chow – retiring President for Adventist World Radio
Dowell Chow: Retiring after six years as president of AWR and 50 years of service in the Seventh-day Adventist Church

During his time at AWR, Chow was a tireless traveler. He hiked across mountains in Mexico to deliver audio players to isolated tribal villagers, baptized new Adventists in a muddy pit in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, verified FM signals in the Canary Islands, helped train new producers for Bhutan, and more.

Under his leadership, AWR’s active broadcasts – heard via shortwave, AM/FM, and podcasts – grew by more than a dozen languages, including Dzongkha, Tibetan, Yemba, and Oriya. At last count, AWR’s daily podcast downloads had reached 18 million. Chow spearheaded the negotiations for the first Adventist FM broadcasts in India (which now serve millions of listeners in 22 major cities). He was thrilled to see plans for four production studios in mainland China become reality. He had a passion for the people of North Africa, and worked closely with the Spanish Union of Churches Conference on FM broadcasts that would serve listeners in multiple colloquial languages.

Chow says, “Serving the church through Adventist World Radio has been a privilege. It is a thrill to see the gospel commission being played out in the world, assisted by the ministry of AWR. I would like to express special gratitude to our faithful supporters. Brighter days are still ahead, and it is my prayer that under the leadership of our new president, AWR will grow and continue to be a blessing to world.”

AWR senior vice president Greg Scott says, “It has been an honor and a privilege to serve with Dowell, as God has used him a powerful way. As he and his wife, Heidi, move on to the next phase of their life, we truly wish them all the best and pray for God’s richest blessings upon them.”

Glenn Hauser logs January 18-19, 2017


** ALGERIA [non]. 5865, Jan 19 at 0457, sounds like Qur`an but more melodic than usual, and more than one voice, cut off at 0458*. 0501 recheck, back on in reverent Arabic talk. Partially matches the schedule on Aoki for R. Algerienne via Issoudun, FRANCE, a break at 0458-0500 for a beam change from 160 to 194 degrees, and supposedly from HQ in Arabic, to French, with Arabic not to resume until 0511. 5865 sked continues until 0658 alternating Arabic and French (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, Jan 19 at 0526, RHC English is dead air on what is normally their best signal when managing to modulate. 6165 is OK but undermodulated as usual; 6060 is overmodulated/distorted as usual; 6000 is OK; 5040 is OFF, as Wolfgang Büschel also noticed (however I get a JBA carrier on 5040, from what, exciter?) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 11860, Jan 19 at 1355, Republic of Yemen Radio still with good S9+10 signal, but some CCI. I think it must be spur from RHC 11840, which is S9+30 and emitting its usual first-order S9 spurs on 11830 & 11850, but also weaker ones further 20 and 30 kHz out where they are not blocked, on 11870, maybe the JBA carriers on 11820, 11810. They`re all gone at 1400*.

We are now halfway thru the B-16 season, and Arnie *still* has not replaced the A-16 schedule at http://www.radiohc.cu/interesantes/frecuencias
when 11840 was on air only in the tarde (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 6145, Jan 19 at 1349, S8 weak signal from Sea Breeze, Japan, recognizable YL with English intonation, still on Thursdays and not yet QSYed again (Glenn Hauser, OK, DXL ISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH. 1566, Jan 19 at 1331, detecting the HLAZ/FEBC Jeju carrier from the NW, I`m standing by from 1343 for the cutoff antenna change from Japan beam, which I do perceive at 1344:30*. It comes back on in a few seconds with weaker signal toward China, but I don`t need  to hear that (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** LAOS. 6130-, Jan 19 circa 1245, JBA carrier definitely on the low side, surely RNL Vientiane, as JRX in Brasil has logged it on 6129.97 and Wolfgang Büschel via remote to Germany on 6129.975, i.e. 25-30 Hz low, as explained on WORLD OF RADIO 1861 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PALAU. 9960.028v, Wed Jan 18 at 1435, Furusato no Kaze, via T8WH, is off-frequency, in fact more like 9960.07 when I start tracking it, first noted as ACI to WORLD OF RADIO on 9955 WRMI. T8WH is stronger at S9+20, even tho it`s 100 kW at 345 degrees. Is steadily drifting downward and fortunately stops at 9960.00 a few minutes later. Looks like they need to warm it up for a while before 1430; but please don`t. Aoki shows this semihour is the only broadcast anywhen, anywhence on 9960 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH AFRICA. 7285, Jan 19 at 0512, interview with American- accented Ford spoxeman in English about recalls for some vehicle safety issue. The YL interviewer speaks Afrikaans and I don`t think she is translating him. Another bilingual interview Radio Sonder Grense doesn`t hesitate to air, as presumably every Afrikaaner also understands English. S9 signal could have been mistaken for a major broadcaster when in English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 12035.026, Jan 18 at 1420, VOT with music, quick headlines in English, sign-off announcement is cut off before it finishes, at 1424.7* in typical lack of coördination between studio and site. Also typically off to the high side like other TRT frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U K [non]. 7445, Jan 19 at 0507, BBCWS coverage of Gambia crisis, ECOWAS forces ready to intervene, interview expert from Michigan State U., unlike VOA on 7460 which has already moved on to other African news. And BBC is much stronger, 250 kW at 114 degrees from ASCENSION (at 06-08 switches to weaker South Africa site). (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 7460, Jan 19 at 0505, report on Gambian political crisis, then about the SPLM in Sudan South. It`s VOA via BOTSWANA; much weaker than 7445 BBC, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1860 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday January 18 at 1415.5 on WRMI 9955, S9 with no jamming, and also on much weaker // 6855. Also confirmed Wed Jan 18 at 2200 on WBCQ 7490, good; recheck at 2228 for the closing, last bit of propagation is cut off before 2229 for music, even tho WOR is under 29:00 minutes. Not confirmed UT Thu Jan 19 at 0030 on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB, but the JBA carrier there is probably it; meanwhile neighbor 9265 WINB is S9. 

WORLD OF RADIO 1861 monitoring: confirmed first SW broadcast Thursday 1230 January 19 at 1241 on WRMI 9955, S9+20 and no jamming, // much weaker S8 6855. By 1255 a bit of jamming is audible on 9955 which has weakened to only S9+10; tnx a lot, Arnie! There`s nothing to jam at 1300, just Prague in English. Next:

** U S A. 9330.18v-CUSB, UT Thu Jan 19 at 0448, WBCQ is still on, with Brother Scare! Nothing on 5130v, so this is a change for the Wednesday-night-only displacement from 7490, due to Hal Turner on that frequency once a week at 0200-0400 UT Thursday, but BS would not normally be on at 04-05 anyway due to `Financial Survival` [sic] on 7490. Shift from 5130 to 9330 for this is not yet shown on WBCQ schedule.

Not synchro with BS on 5890 WWCR or 7570 WRMI, but at 0457 I note the same anti-Moslem topic, maybe half a minute behind the otherstations. 0500 chime and quick legal WBCQ ID interrupts 9330, back to more BS. 9330 is still BSing at 0540 around 9330.06; 0634 check by when it`s drifted to about 9330.08. 

Better watch out for Cuban spy numbers on 9330 which appear around 0700, but no clash yet at my final check 0653, until when? EiBi shows Spy starts at 0654! on days 1/3/5/7 = Mon/Wed/Fri/Sun, so no problem on Thursday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5810, Jan 18 at 0633, WEWN Spanish is off; but 11520 English is on with a JBA carrier. 

12050, Jan 18 at 1438, corresponding day frequency of WEWN Spanish is on as usual, with humbuzz, splatter out to 12035/12115. 

At least we`re fortunate that 5810 does not act like that, so is it really a different transmitter? This season only two frequencies ever at a time instead of three. WRTH reminds us that they (originally) had 3 x 500 kW, plus 1 x 500 kW backup (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505, Jan 19 t 0504 tune-in to suptorted music at S9+20, so WRNO must be back on after a few nights` AWOL --- but this cuts off in less than a minute before I have a change to measure it; slightly off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
