Glenn Hauser logs June 16, 2010

** CANADA [and non]. Altho a storm was approaching us from west, 6 MHz daytime reception unusually good for this yeartime, not much noise yet, June 16 at 1330 with CFRX 6070 and CKZU 6160 audible, poor-fair. Also still Cuba 5025. This is 2.25 hours after LSR (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. Firedrake search June 16 1323-1328: fruitless 18-8 MHz, in very poor conditions (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** COSTA RICA [and non]. 15170, REE relay as I tuned in June 16 at 1313, ``bienvenidos al partido de España``, apparently in studio discussing imminent WC game involving Spain, inexplicably with ``Can`t Buy Me Love`` playing in background. No horns heard yet, but there they were by 1344, axually bringing in audio from RSA, discussing medical condition of some player. Meanwhile, 17595 direct from Spain was // and leading by several syllables, unlike previously, but extracontinental signals above 12 MHz much degraded compared to usual reception.

Checking 49m at 1333, found JBA signal on 5970 // 15170, and I think even weaker 5930 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11675, JBA DCJC pulses vs nothing, June 16 at 1340. Normally one cannot correlate these things with RHC frequencies, but this one fits as a leapfrog of one of the wall-of-noise units on 11845 against Radio Martí mixing with RHC on 11760, another 85 kHz lower. While most of the jammers are probably at distinct sites, some of them may be coming from RHC broadcast sites. It`s all RadioCuba, after all (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. NTSC channel 36, KHCM-CA, invisible for a while, back June 16 after 0300 UT; 0455 fading out, back again. Apparently this OKC low power relaying KUOK-35 Woodward with Univisión is not sufficient to reach here under dead conditions and needs some area tropo boost. Normally invisible LPs in OKC on 17, 19, 21 and 48 // 36 also coming in at 0552. 19 has GCN network with 700 Club; 21 home shopping.

Meanwhile, 32, KXOK-LP Enid back to No Signal! screen at 0500 and still at 1445 UT June 16 (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 11715, KJES, June 16 at 1327, decent modulation proving they can do it if they really try, woman with apparent Bible verses, soon over to robokids who read with much less expression (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. During degraded conditions June 16 with many signals attenuated, WWCR 9980 and WTWW 9479 were still inbooming, but not WWRB 9385, the third TN station remarkably weaker during Brother Scare asking for monitoring reports on the 940 station in MA to decide whether he should buy time on it. It`s WGFP in Webster, 1 kW day, 4 watts night, per NRC AM Log (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ###
