Glenn Hauser logs March 16, 2011

** ANGUILLA. 11775, PMS/DGS/TUN/CB missing again at 1333 March 16 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** FRANCE. 11830, March 16 at 0614, French chanson, so is RFI on strike? This is Portuguese service via SOUTH AFRICA, 330 degrees from Meyerton. Mike Cooper quoted AFP that an indefinite strike started at 2300 UT March 14. It may be selective.

9765, March 16 at 0618, RFI English, no strike here, VG signal, 170 degrees from Issoudun, going from news into press review quite critical of stories about Fukushima lacking facts; rest of semihour, reports on Libya (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUATEMALA. 4052.5-, March 16 at 0603, R. Verdad with S9+18 signal, but music modulation is rather muffled, mushy and distorted; into ``Amazing Grace`` sung in English, so running a bit late past midnight sign-off as has been happening several times lately (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUYANA. 3290, V. of Guyana, March 16 at 0606 definitely BBCWS relay with closing news item about tsunami killing albatrosses on Midway --- see
and then `Global Business` show. Good modulation and fair signal, somewhat audible if offtuned upward (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1556: first airing should be Wednesday 2115 on WBCQ 7415 (is interference from China a problem now?). On WRMI 9955: Thu 0330, 1500, 2100, Fri 1430, Sat 0800, 1400, 1730. On WWRB: UT Fri 0330 on 2390. On WWCR: Fri 2030 on 7465, Sat 1600 on 12160, Sun 0630 on 3215. Note that these times are one UT hour earlier than last week due to DST.
