[HCDX] Glenn Hauser logs July 24-25-26, 2017

 ** ANGUILLA. 11775, July 25 at 1736 check, CB is still off. Current situation appears to be active on night frequency 6090, not on day frequency (or 6090 could be running all day? Check whether it cut off circa 1000 or fade in before 2200) (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1888, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ARGENTINA [non]. 9395, UT Wednesday July 26 at 0100, I happen to be on the road, so without the usual distraxions, listen to the entire RAE Argentina to the World hour. Usual good reception from WRMI on the BSR-1 caradio, but occasional fades and crosstalk from something else which attenuation would probably have ridded.
Fernando opens the broadcast claiming this is the Tuesday 0700 airing on 5850 and 7730. Must be playing the wrong file --- but does it really make any difference? Originally they pledged to update the news during the intervening 6 hours, which would hardly be worth the trouble overnight in Bs As. Are there any other changes?
Fernando says he is back on air after a week off visiting Uruguay with his family. In his always very informal style the news follows, and I do have the impression he is translating it from original Spanish on the fly, rather than prepared in advance. Annoying music bed continues to be played during the news, brief fade-ups between items.
Next show at 0116 is `Argentines with No Frontiers`, interviewing Lourdes Rivera, an Argentine lawyer in Manhattan after going to Cornell in Ithaca. 0138 final segment is by YL about ``Ra?l Carnota(?), Innovator``, self-taught musician and guitarist, with lots of music segments. The multi-lingual ID reel played only thrice, at 0105, 0115, 0155, finally followed by headlines, frequency announcement and a bit more music.
After 0200 I am still tuned to 9395 and hear Radio Prague in English. Yes, that now shows on the skedgrid, with 9395 Oldies not resuming until 0230, which is when Prague plays again on 11580, after Ukraine at 0200 --- but too weak to confirm that here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 7585, July 25 at 0311, JBA carrier, tnx tip from Rick Barton, AZ, that anti-Christ pirate Station YHWH was back on the air, but very weak for him until off at 0312*. Had not been reported since June 30. Not heard by Ron Howard or Volodya Salmaniw then, but Walt had Josiah the next night July 26 at 0220 an hour before BC sunset with fair signal and good modulation; not rechecked here yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1888, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. RF 24, July 25 at 1420 UT, KOKH ``25`` OKC megawatt is unusually breaking up as if suffering from CCI. Tropo map shows some enhancement in OK & KS, but no other channels are showing anything unusual. This happens on one of my antennas, but not the other, maybe a fluke.
Nearest other RF 24s are per W9WI.com: K24IW-D in Ardmore, close to same heading as OKC, 500 watts but CP for 15 kW; the KTUL Tulsa booster really in McAlester, 600 watts (and application for a 700-watt one in Bartlesville(?)) both listed as ``Tulsa``. Reversely there are four CPs in Kansas afar, Colby, Chapman, and Russell, obviously assigned in a row as K24LE, LF and LG; and Wichita CP anear, KGPT-CD with 15 kW.
BTW, KOKH on 25-2 is now Charge! for some time, not Grit as in W9WI.com (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1887 monitoring: confirmed Monday July 24 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330.2v-CUSB, fair. Also confirmed UT Tuesday July 25 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, good.
Since we have lost any Thursday or Friday airtimes on WRMI, but there are plenty on Tuesday and Wednesday, I have decided from this week, July 25, to produce WORLD OF RADIO a day earlier on Tuesdays (subject to change if I just can`t get it done in time). So the first WRMI  broadcast will be Tuesday at 2130 on 9455 & 15770, rather than having to wait until Saturday at 2300 on 11580. First on WBCQ also Tuesday at 2330 on 9330v-CUSB instead of Thursday. And the only 7490 WBCQ airing Wednesday at 2100 will be fresh instead of a week old (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1888, DX LISTENING DIGEST) Viz.:

Hi! Heard Worldofradio Tuesday [July 25] over WRMI, 2130 UT, 15770. SINPO 43233 (Jon Collins, Birmingham UK, Tecsun PL-660, telescopic whip, DX LISTENING DIGEST) What was the interference at 3-level?? (gh)
Also confirmed WOR 1888 first SW broadcast on new schedule, Tuesday July 25 at 2130 on WRMIs 9455 & 15770. At first 15770 was better, then faded, then roughly equal at fair. Also confirmed Tuesday July 25 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330.20v-CUSB, good (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 11825, July 25 at 1257, WRMI run-up to 1300 opening Brother HyStairical, Bob Biermann with IDs and music, but can we call it an IS? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 7490, July 25 at 1251, `The Power Hour` is still on this WWCR, but for the first hour only. At 1259, Brady announces the toll-free phone number for TPH, then switches right into the new gospel huxter which bumped TPH, Challenge Ministries International. TPH also on WRMI 9395, but 9455 is still // 9955 Eslovaquia in Spanish, until  joining in at 1300 for VOA News in English relay, with mid-ID at 1302. The presumed still running WWCR // for TPH again from 1308, 13845, is a JBA carrier, as is the WRMI // 7780. By 1410 for the third hour, 9395, 9455 and 13845 are about equal at poor-fair level, and 7780 beamed out into the north Atlantic remains a JBA carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1888, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9475 & 9930 & 12105, July 25 at 1737 check, all three WTWW transmitters are OFF. 9475 might instead be on night frequency 5830 as has happened before while Ted dozes, but cannot detect it now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1888, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

  REALTIME BAND CONDITIONS WEB SITE :
  The purpose of this experimental Web site is to provide 24-7-365 actual
  (REALTIME) band condition information to CW QRPp, QRPe and CW/SSB for
  Contesters interested in increasing their scores. It can also be of
  benefit to other Radio Amateurs to determine band conditions for Nets
  and casual QSO's. This information is NOT based on any software pre-
  dictions or any kind of satellite based readings. It is based on a
  new Ionospheric sounding method called "HF Ionospheric Interferometry"
  which operates very similarly to the PolSAR system used by NASA.

V4, ST. KITTS AND NEVIS. Frank, K3TRM, is once again active as V4/K3TRM
from Nevis Island (NA-104) until July 30th. Activity will be on 40-10 
meters using CW, SSB, RTTY and Satellite. His equipment is an IC-706MKIIG
with a Elecraft KPA-500 500-watt amp into a G5RV and Arrow antenna. QSL 
via K3TRM, direct, by the Bureau, LoTW or ClubLog.

V4, ST. KITTS AND NEVIS (On the Bird). John, V47JA/W5JON, has been oper-
ating on SO-50 from St. Kitts with some success. The problem for him is
that there is terrain in the way from about 320 degrees, north to east,
so he is limited to what he can work from his house there. John is putting
together what he will need to operate portable from the top of the hill
where he will be able to see down to the horizon to the north. Once he
has everything together he will be able to work down low and work more
stations in the U.S. He is using an Arrow antenna and two FM mobile units.
He is not a newcomer to the birds, but hasn't operated since the HEO's
went away years ago. He will be on St. Kitts for a few weeks and he hopes
to work everyone that needs it. SO-50 only. He will QSL via LoTW, but
might wait until he returns to Texas to get everyone uploaded.

V7, MARSHALL ISLANDS (Reminder). Randy, WW6RG, is expected to be active
as V73/WW6RG from Kwajalein Island (after his Wake Island operation; see
above) for two days staring July 24th. Activity will be the same as his
Wake Island operation (see above), but this time he will be running 100
watts. QSL via his home callsign direct. ADDED NOTE: He is expected to
return sometime between August 21-23rd, for another two day operation.

W2, UNITED STATES (LH Op). The Old Barney ARC will be operating as W2T
from the Tucker's Island Lighthouse (USA-911) in the Tuckerton Seaport in
NJ on August 19th, and possibly again on August 20th, but not yet confirmed.
Lighthouse/Museum details at . This Lighthouse is
a replica of the original which fell into the sea during a storm in 1927.
It currently features a museum and is the focal point of the Tuckerton
Seaport. It is not on an island and it does not count for IOTA or USI.
Operation is planned mainly on 40 and 20 meters SSB with some CW from
about 1300-2100 UTC each day. QSL via N2OO.

ZZ0, TRINDAD AND MARTIN VAZ ISLANDS (Cancelled). It was announced this
past week that the ZZ0T operation/project to Trindade and Martin Vaz
Islands has been cancelled. No other details were provided.

[HCDX] Glenn Hauser logs July 21-22-23, 2017


** ANGUILLA. 6090, July 22 at 0615, shux, DGS and Caribbean Beacon are back on with good modulation, explaining exactly what a beacon is --- wait, no, it`s Deacon; hmm, why not call it Caribbean Deacon??
11775, July 22 at 1701 check, CB is off again from daytime frequency.
6090, July 23 at 0045, CB is on again in music break, good modulation at S9+20 // 5935 WWCR (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ARGENTINA [non]. 7730, UT Saturday July 22 at 0621 via WRMI, RAE Argentina al Mundo (not sure how you say that in transliterated Japanese) finishes a tango, and Japanese YL introduces ``DX`` show starting with a log from Manuel M?ndez in Spain of KNLS. I suppose identical info is in the original Spanish version, translated to all the other languages (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 6060, July 23 at 0043, surprised to find RHC in French here, instead of scheduled Spanish from 0000; // 5040 where French is only supposed to be. Both Bauta per Aoki (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NETHERLANDS [non]. 9925, UT Sunday July 23 at 0032 and further chex following hour, only a JBA carrier! Presumed The Mighty KBC via GERMANY. Yet Greece is good S9 on 9935, and better on 9420. Can a slightly more northerly path account for this disparity? WWV reported:
``Solar-terrestrial indices for 22 July follow.
Solar flux 70 and estimated planetary A-index 16.
The estimated planetary K-index at 0000 UTC on 23 July was 3.
Space weather for the past 24 hours has been minor.
Geomagnetic storms reaching the G1 level occurred.``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6955-USB, July 23 at 0120, rock song at S9, 0123 announcements but can`t copy due to high storm noise level. 0132 a jingle and ID with reverb as Radio Interlochen -- as in Michigan; or is it Interlaken, as in Switzerland? Neither: that`s what I am disposed to hear as a classical music aficionado, but godforbid any SW pirate should ever play any of that!!! Numerous logs here
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,36288.0.html
spell it as Radio Enterhaken --- which I guess is a known pirate of yore, but has anyone really seen it in print? Rafman cites announced e-mail address as enterhaken@gmx.net so that would clinch it, but did they spell it out? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-USB, July 23 at 0152, another pirate with wild music while 6955 is still on. It`s unID for even more numerous loggers
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,36293.0.html
despite a number of SSTV captures showing PEE WEE under the slogan ``I do whatever my Rice Krispies tell me to do`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6925, July 23 at 0153, JBA AM carrier slightly on lo side. No matches for this on HFU, tho earlier there was an unID on 6925.1. This hour I have been mainly attentive to CNN`s `Declassified` about Russian spies caught in the US, illustrated with a DX-440 SW radio just like mine (out of service); for real, or re-enactment? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SPAIN. 17855, Saturday July 22 at 1704, no signal from REE`s North American frequency which is supposed to start at 1400, mostly for silly ballgames. Propagation is sufficient, since very poor REE signals are audible on 17715 and 15520 for elsewhere. At 2133, still no 17855, while 17715 is fair, 15520 good and 15390 very poor. Ivo Ivanov often notes one of the four is missing, but you never know which one it will be (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1887 monitoring: confirmed Friday July 21 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330.12v-CUSB, fair. Also confirmed Saturday July 22 at 2235 the 2230 on WBCQ 9330.32v-CUSB, fair. Also confirmed Sat July 22 at 2300 on WRMI, 11580, fair; also confirmed UT Sunday July 23 at 0220 the 0200 on WRMI, 11580, very poor by now. Also confirmed me talking but no possible details, UT Sunday July 23 at 0323 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Missouri. Lots of lightning noise from west TX, NM, OK panhandle, closing in on OK proper. Next:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9395 // 9455, UT Sat July 22 at 0558, WRMIs with VOA news relay at inopportune time during Oldies channel, cut off at 0559:30 for ID, and 0600:00 immediately into `Your Weekend Show`. I listen for the first few minutes as Bob Biermann explains that he has left Florida and WRMI to take up a full-time position as the third pastor at a church in Sky Valley, Georgia. He loves being in the cool mountains, but remains fond of FL.
(This place is in the extreme NE corner of GA, population 250 and originally a ski resort, but not enough snow so now it`s a summer resort. Elevation is 1 km, which hardly qualifies as mountainous in the real West. The mountain it`s next to is Rabun Bald, peaking at 1431 m, which is like ground level in Santa Rosa NM; yet is the second-highest ``mountain`` in Georgia.)
Says he had been in semi-retirement in Jensen Beach FL, when he ``got the call`` to go back to ministering full-time. WRMI staff list at
http://wrmi.net/index.php/about/our-staff
still shows him as ``Bob Biermann - Transmitter and Studio Engineer``. Of course he was involved in getting the WRMI Oldies channel going, but it`s so automated he hardly needs to be there, nor does he of course, in order to continue with `YWS` if he wishes. His low-key style of preaching is appreciated, only in stark contrast to all the screaming gospel huxters elsewhere on SW and WRMI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5830, July 22 at 0618, WTWW-1 is AWOL, and no trace on daytime frequency 9475 either; nor on 5085 WTWW-3. Further chex July 22 at 1706: still missing from 9475, 9930, and of course 12105. 1817 recheck in case still on night frequencies: but no traces either on 5830 or 5085 which might be detectable midday at 1 megameter. (A while ago, I heard Ted admit that sometimes he sleeps late, which explains anomalies in WTWW transmission? If his human intervention is required a few times a day for manual frequency changes, transmitters on/off).
Anyhow, no `Theater Organ in the Ozarx` this Saturday afternoon at 1800+ on 9930; no 9930 at all. By 2122 recheck, only 9475 is back on with suptorted SFAW. By 0044 UT Sunday July 23, 5085 has come on with rock music at S9+30, and TOITO is going by 0102 (Glen Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9370 & 3185, July 23 at 0028, both BS frequencies from WWRB are missing, maybe in the middle of a QSY, but which nominally occurs in the following hour. 5050, however is on with hateful gospel huxters (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

[HCDX] Glenn Hauser logs July 20-21, 2017

** CHINA. 15040, July 21 at 1303, CNR1 echo jamming, poor, against All India Radio`s Chinese scheduled until 1315, but can`t hear any of that, supposedly 500 kW, 60 degrees from Bengaluru (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ISRAEL [non]. Regarding i24 and its corporate master Altice, I happen to see an ad for Altice on CNN (possibly inserted locally by its Suddenlink subsidiary), July 21 at 0537 UT, during which it is pronounced Al-teece.
And quite by chance, the head honcho, Patrick Drahi, is subject of this story from Portugal, which came to me as spam. It`s a teaser for the full story about to be published in the major print magazine VIS?O, which I have not yet seen online:
``O lado oculto de Patrick Drahi
anteVIS?O --- Mafalda Anjos, Diretora   19 de Julho de 2017
Provavelmente j? ouviu falar de Patrick Drahi. ? ele o empres?rio de origem judia que quer somar a TVI ? Portugal Telecom e desafiar a concorr?ncia, tornando-se num (ainda mais) poderoso empres?rio no panorama nacional. ? conhecido por ser implac?vel, tratar as pessoas com desprezo, pagar-lhes o menos poss?vel e, nos neg?cios, cultivar a rapidez na tomada de decis?o. O que poucos sabem ? que este homem de nome estrangeiro tem afinal desde o final do ano passado um novo passaporte portugu?s no bolso, atribu?do ao abrigo da lei que desde 2015 admite a atribui??o de nacionalidade aos judeus sefarditas com ascendentes nascidos no Pa?s. No tema de capa desta semana, Clara Teixeira e Cesaltina Pinto tra?am o perfil do magnata que sonhou em comprar a Time Warner e quer ser o dono disto tudo em Portugal.``
[Google translation of above, slightly improved:]
July 19, 2017 --- The Hidden Side of Patrick Drahi
``You've probably heard of Patrick Drahi. He is the businessman of Jewish origin who wants to add TVI to Portugal Telecom and challenge the competition, becoming an (even more) powerful businessman on the national scene. He is known to be ruthless, to treat people with contempt, to pay them as little as possible and, in business, to cultivate speed in decision-making. What few know is that this man of foreign name has since last year a new Portuguese passport in his pocket, attributed under the law that since 2015 admits the attribution of nationality to Sephardic Jews with ascendants born in the country. On this week's cover, Clara Teixeira and Cesaltina Pinto trace the profile of the tycoon who dreamed of buying Time Warner and wants to be the owner of it all in Portugal.``
I then searched for more of the story and got this version, as also translated:
``Drahi, the owner of PT and TVI, has a new passport: Portuguese
  Economy 19.07.2017 ?s 17h08 Rui Duarte Silva
Descendant of Sephardic Jews, Patrick Drahi acquired Portuguese nationality before launching himself for the purchase of Media Capital. It's the third passport to get into his pocket.
In the two years between the acquisition of Portugal Telecom and Media Capital, Altice's boss, Patrick Drahi, has not stopped. Under the new law of 2015, he acquired Portuguese nationality after having been able to prove that he descends from three Jewish families expelled from Portugal by the edict of D. Manuel I, in 1496: Os Adrehi (name that will have evolved to Drahi), the Sics? and the Amouyal.
Of the Adrehi and Sics?, there are records of their return to Faro in the 19th century, after Diaspora had taken them first to Livorno (Italy), and then to Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco, where Patrick would be born in 1963.
In the Algarve city, the ancestors of the magnate are remembered as influential members of the Jewish community, and the proof is in sight of whoever crosses the portal of the Lisbon Synagogue.
Learn all about Patrick Drahi's life and Media Capital's buying deal in this week's VISION, Thursday on the newsstands. AVAILABLE ALSO: Ipad - Digital Edition`` (via Glenn Hauser, DXLD)
** OKLAHOMA. 92.1, July 21 at 1429 UT check, local KAMG-LP is *still* transmitting dead air; only a few miles away, but quite weak, and with PL-880 antenna properly positioned, KFXI again penetrates it, with rock, 1434 UT Pauls Valley Ford ad, ``KFXI, Foxi 92``, i.e. 100 kW from Marlow, southern OK.
There is slight tropo enhancement. This and 94.1 Lawton are all I get when I set up on the porch after Es to here halfway up the FM band is implied by the 6m DXmap (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 94.1, July 21 at 1430 UT, with a little tropo boost, rock music manages next to local splatterer 94.3 KLGB-LP. Program plugs it also being on AFN, see bobandtom.com and then national ads from Home Depot, NAPA, but 1431 UT ``Lawton-Fort Sill`s Rock Station, Z-94``, which is KZCD, 35 kW H&V, 178m HAAT. It`s their only OK station per affiliate list:
http://www.bobandtom.com/stations/
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. Checking the NWS Enid website July 20 around 1915 UT, I am astounded to see it display a current temp of 122 F = 50 C! After finding contact form, I tell them:
``It`s hot, but surely not THAT hot, which would be record breaking --- current temp as 122 = 50 C????? How can we rely on this. Today`s high separately predicted at only 103.
I copy from your own site for Enid:
Current conditions at

PLEASE EXPLAIN!!``
Next check a few minutes later, it has declined to *only* 106. No reply received. Here`s a screenshot of the evidence:
http://www.w4uvh.net/NWSEnid122.bmp
(Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9395, Friday July 21 at 1236, WRMI with `The Power Hour`, YL host rather like Joyce, and pushing paranoid products after OM co-host or guest about the 100+year-old sprintress. Fair signal and running 26 seconds behind blasting // 7490 WWCR, also 13845. WRMI Programming page still unshows TPH, but the transmission sked claims 12-15 UT on 9395 (really M-F only), and does not show anything but Oldies on 9455, which really joins in at 13-15 (both still with VOA news on the hour?) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1520, July 21 at 1220 UT, an hour after LSR here, I start some MW bandscanning, where skywave has not quite faded out yet on the topend. KOKC talk from OKC has almost equal signal making slow SAH of 24/minute = 0.4 Hz, and inseparable by DF, so obviously KYND Cypress (Houston market) TX. It`s playing hymns in English, with a brief unID announcement between them..
As of a year ago in the NRC AM Log, KYND was UC:OLD/TLK, 25 kW direxional daytimer, reduced to 18 kW critical hours, different pattern. The indispensable new 38th edition NRC AM Radio Log (about 300 pages on paper only, 3-hole-binder punched) will be out in about a month, and pre-orders are being taken via
http://www.nrcdxas.org/catalog/books/index1.html#ARL
(Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1540.0, July 21 at 1223 UT, since I`ve just heard KYND 1520, time to look for KGBC in Galveston, and there it is with a live timecheck between songs for ``23 past the hour on Galveston`s own KGBC``. How nice that it is once again Galveston`s rather than China`s own (KGBC and KYND both used to relay China Radio International). This has a 72/minute SAH = 1.2 Hz, perhaps with remnant of KXEL if not something closer, and obviously is back almost on-frequency (last year it was way off plus making an audible tell-tale het).
1227 UT a string of about a dozen people getting happy-birthday wishes; and one may apply to be included via http://www.kgbcradio.com --- do you have to prove you`re local? Celebrating un-birthdays would be less risky for identity theft. By now some SS CCI is growing; at first I thought I heard San Antonio mentioned, which would be KEDA, but then definitely ESPN-Deportes Radio, i.e. KZMP. Due to direxionality, it`s not unusual for 2.5 kW KGBC to overcome twice-as-close 32 kW KZMP in The MetroPlex (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1690, July 21 at 1230 UT, ``Money Talk 1690`` and moneytalk1690.com ID from KDMT Arvada CO. Note the word Denver is not included in the URL. Remnant skywave yet from the NW more than an hour after SR here. KDMT should have been bumped up from 1 kW night to day power 10 kW from its FCC-official July sunrise of 1145 UT (August: 1215 UT) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 6130-6140, July 21 at 0615, Cuban-style pulse jamming with no reason to be here, stray? Peaking at 6135. Of course quite different North Korean jamming attacking 6135 could be audible much later (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 13927-USB, July 21 at 1307, ``have a good flight, 5RN``, off and nothing more for next few minutes. It`s an active USAF MARS long-range frequency, and should bring lots more traffic if one had the patience to sit upon it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 15016-AM, July 21 at 1304 and still 1409, JBA carrier. Possibly an R75 birdie, tho not noticed before; unlikely as it is very close to on-frequency and not wavering. 15016 listed only by EiBi as
15016 0000-2400 USA US Air Force Messages E NAm
But of course those would be in USB, details of mode not covered by EiBi. Possibly one of those transmitters is occupying the channel. Many logs of this elsewhere as one of those secret-message alfanumeric channels (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report despatched at 1716 UT July 21

ARLP029 Propagation de K7RA

ARLP029 Propagation de K7RA

Average daily sunspot number this week declined just 1.7 to 26.6,
even though there were two days in the reporting week with no
sunspots, July 18 and 19.  The blank sun condition continued at
least one more day on Thursday, July 20 which lands it on the first
day of the next reporting week, July 20 to 26.

Average daily solar flux was 85.9, down 1.1 from the previous week.

Average planetary A index rose 3.9 points to 13, average
mid-latitude A index rose from 9.6 to 10.9.

A coronal mass ejection (CME) on July 16 struck at 0545 UTC driving
the planetary A index to 41, and 27 the following day.

Predicted solar flux is 70 on July 21 to 27, 75 on July 28, 90 on
July 29 through August 11, 85 on August 12 and 13, 80 on August 14,
74 on August 15 to 19, 75 on August 20 to 24, and 90 on August 25 to
September 3.

Predicted planetary A index is 8, 12 and 8 on July 21 to 23, 5 on
July 24 through August 4, then 25, 10 and 8 on August 5 to 7, 5 on
August 8 to 14, 8 on August 15 and 16, then 15 and 12 on August 17
and 18, 5 on August 19 to 31, and 25, 10 and 8 on September 1 to 3.

F. K. Janda, OK1HH of the Czech Propagation Interest Group sent us
this geomagnetic activity forecast for the period July 21 to August
8, 2017

"Geomagnetic field will be:
Quiet on July 25 and 26, August 1 and 2
Mostly quiet on July 24, 27, 30 and 31, August 4, 8
Quiet to unsettled July 23, August 3
Quiet to active on July 21 and 22, 28 and 29, August 7
Active to disturbed on August 5 and 6

Amplifications of the solar wind from coronal holes are expected on
July 21, (23 and 24, 28 and 29), August 6 to 8

Remark:
- Parenthesis means lower probability of activity enhancement and/or
lower reliability of prediction."

David Moore sent a link to an excellent NY Times science article
titled "Unlocking Mysteries in the Sun's 11-Year Cycle."

[HCDX] Glenn Hauser logs July 19-20-21, 2017

** AFGHANISTAN [non]. 7445, July 21 at 0031, poor signal in noise, maybe stilted Spanish? Far from it: latest HFCC shows BBC in Dari at 0030-0100, 250 kW, 86 degrees from Woofferton UK. (And alternating Pashto and Dari semihours continue on 7445 with site changes: 0100-0300, 35 degrees from Oman; and 0300-0330 switching again to 163 degrees from Uzbekistan) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 6000, July 20 at 0124, RHC English is dead air; while // 6145 is sufficient. There`s always something wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NEW ZEALAND. Correcting typo in second time: 1046, not 0146, and making it local evening instead of afternoon:
7425, July 19 at 1035, RNZI with interesting interview about social awkwardness, guest with a North American accent; evidently part of an evening magazine show, on to another topic at 1046; sufficiently good reception, as before the switch to NNW antenna at 1059 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU. 5980, July 20 at 2335, JJJBBBA carrier from R. Chaski, fading up and down vs the noise level. Cuts off at approx. 2339:15* which is 75 seconds later than last check 11 nights ago, July 9 until 2338:00*, so averaging 6.82 seconds later per noctem, right in line with previous calculation of 6.72 seconds over a 34-day span. If it was really until 2339:14* today, as well it could have been within margin of error, that would average out to 6.73! Anyhow, they obviously still have not reset the autotimer closer to nominal 2330.0* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PHILIPPINES. 15355, July 20 at 2256, surprised to find a fairly good signal here with jazz music, interspersed with thrice repeated IDs in English for Radio Veritas Asia, Quezon City, which would start Filipino at 2300 on 15355. After that does start, the signal fades, but it had been #3 only to the Cubans on 15370 and 15230 in the original 19m band, besides a few more weak signals upper, 15610 WEWN, 15730 another RHC.
Aoki shows 15355 as daily 2300-2327, 250 kW, 0 degrees from Palauig, meaning due north or non-direxional? WRTH avoids the issue by never publishing azimuths (not in the Bargraph Frequency Guide either), just very general target areas, in this case Asia. HFCC shows registered targets as CIRAF 42 & 43, i.e. western and central China, which make no sense, neither for language nor for azimuth. Anyhow, this does attain central North America (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1886 monitoring:
9955, WRMI, Radio Miami Int?l; 1341-1345+, 19-July; Glenn Hauser?s World of Radio #1886 to 1344:26 Rudy Espinal WRMI spot. SIO=4+54 peaks & no jamming. Tnx Arnie? [Wednesday from 1315.5]
7490, WBCQ, Monticello ME, 2109-2131+, 19-July; Glenn Hauser?s World of Radio #1886; noted an item from Don Hosmer about the closing of CKZN. WoR to 2129:00 to music fill, then BoH WBCQ ID by the Goddess Irina & into her dulcet tones. S10 peaks (Harold Frodge, Midland MI, USA, Drake R8B + 185' RW, ----- All logged by my ears, on my receiver, in real time! -----, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
Also here from 2100 on webcast, the ``Q`` of the sung ID as always cut halfway off, into WOR; and then poorly audible in noise on 7490. Also confirmed Wednesday July 19 after 2330 on WBCQ 9330.1v-CUSB, fair (gh)

** U S A. 5085, UT Thursday July 20 at 0121, WTWW-2 is on, sounds like the Theater-Organ-in-the-Ozarx guy, Bob Heil, but now talking about Heathkit restorations; must be another ham show. Usual bigsig and the weak parasites Ted can`t get rid of close to 5072 and 5098.
9475-, July 20 at 0237, WTWW-1 is still on late, and with usual now suptorted modulation; guess Ted forgot to QSY by 0200 to still vacant 5830 since he`s more attentive to running WTWW-2, 5085 where he is now playing rock music. It sure helps to work for absentee owners who don`t know or care what`s really going on at the station (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

[HCDX] Glenn Hauser logs July 18-19, 2017

** CUBA. 11760, July 18 at 1353, this RHC with `Escalas de Cuba` suffers from hum; wiggle that patchcord? Not QRM from China which is also here.
6060, July 19 at 1200, RHC with frequency announcement: 6100 until 1300 and 9535 until 1500, but fails to mention the frequencies already in use, such as the one I am listening to as well as 6000, and the fact that 6100 which I then check is mixed with CCCCI (Chinese Communist Co-channel interference); and furthermore, per Aoki, 6100 & 9535 should have already been on since 1100 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ISRAEL [non]. i24, news channel now available via Suddenlink, Enid, on cable channels 83 & 283 --- the lower one meaning it`s within extended basic tier, and 283 supposedly better in HD, but I think both of them are, like other such pairs. What was on C83 before? I don`t remember, but find an old lineup sheet which said Pivot --- never watched it tho might have been some worthwhile shows, but now it`s nowhere on S/Link, per zap2it listings for here.
Since last report, anyway, I have viewed i24 a bit more and find they do have some commercials, but just a few seen over and over, Galbani -= mozzarella cheese, evidently; Swiss American, NOT cheese but another yellowish thing Pat Boone pushing gold; Sesame Place in Pennsylvania. Lots of repetition in programming too: saw exactly the same news on the hour at 20 and 21 UT; and 04 UT, or almost the same. The news does tend to be Israeli-centric, surprise2.
`Stateside`, however at 01 UT, with David Shuster, originates from ``studio in Times Square, New York``. Of the half-hour, 3 minutes concerned Israel (about the Temple Mount problems). 1-minute break at :11 minutes in merely for self-promotion, no commercials there. Could be optional for cable systems to insert own ads. Two-minute break at :21, introduced as ``commercial break``, but first for Altice, which is the corporate master of Suddenlink and i24; and promo for Africa-Israel Summit, October in Togo; and another minute of i24 promotion.
Kai Ludwig, Germany, replied to my original report:
``Of course they're now relaying the TV channel operated by those who took over this cable company in 2015:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patrick_Drahi
PR puff (or what passes for journalism at media industry publications) about the USA launch in February:
http://www.broadbandtvnews.com/2017/02/13/israels-i24news-launches-in-the-us/
And be prepared that within the next months Suddenlink itself will suddenly become Altice, too:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suddenlink_Communications
>>> Anyhow i24 is the closest we are going to get to Al Jazeera for TV news from the Mideast <<<
You mean, no Al Jazeera available? https://www.suddenlink.com/tvlineup indeed shows, when entering 73701, neither this nor RT, DW, France 24, Arirang (KBS), NHK World, CCTV (China; what I saw from them so far was pretty crude, by the way) or, godforbid, Cubavision and Telesur (Venezuela). So really nothing of this all available??`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, July 18, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NEW ZEALAND. 7425, July 19 at 1035, RNZI with interesting interview about social awkwardness, guest with a North American accent; evidently part of an afternoon magazine show, on to another topic at 0146; sufficiently good reception, as before the switch to NNW antenna at 1059 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1886 monitoring:
6190, Hamburger LokalRadio, Goehren, *0600-0635, 15-07, English, comments. Very weak today, barely audible. 15321 (Manuel M?ndez, Spain, dxldyg via DXLD)
11580, WRMI, July 16, 2017, 0208?0228 in English. SIO 555. Glenn Hauser?s "World of Radio" program. Radio news and commentary (Henley, WA, NASWA Flashsheet via DXLD)
9485, Hamburger LokalRadio, G?hren, 1030-1115, 16-07, English, Glenn Hauser?s program "World of Radio", at 1100 Spanish, "Radio Tropical". 25322 (Manuel M?ndez, Lugo, Spain, Logs in Reinante, Tecsun PL-880, Sangean ATS-909X, cable antenna, 8 meters, dxldyg via DX LISTENING DIGEST)
WOR 1886: Confirmed Tuesday July 18 at 2130 on WRMI 9455 & 15770; initially stronger on the higher, but quickly faded, both to fair level. Also confirmed Tue July 18 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9330.1v-CUSB, fair. Also confirmed Wed July 19 at 1030 on WRMI, 5850, VG S9+10, but // 9455 is JBA, above the MUF. Next:
Wed 2100   WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Wed 2330   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 17775, Tuesday July 18 at 1958, KVOH is still on with music, good but wobbly; 2000 ID in English, more music.
I finally recheck their complex program grid which combines 24h webstream with SW at certain hours, now updated as of June 1:
http://www.voiceofhope.com/schedule/kvoh_program_grid.pdf
Which shows 17775 is supposed to run until 2100 on Thu & Fri only, until 1900 Mon/Tue/Wed, but furthermore: ``*Las emisiones Lun-Mie en 17775 kHz pueden continuar m?s all? de 1900 UTC dependiendo de los requisitos operacionales``.
Further2more, ENGLISH is now inhabiting the Friday extension, starting with `Music in the Afternoon until 1930`, then a sesquihour of preaching. The grid no longer makes any reference to long defunct 9975. (Tho e.g. AWR Wavescan weekly scripts continue to claim a broadcast on it.) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
