Glenn Hauser logs December 1-2, 2012

** BOLIVIA. 6105.56 approx., Dec 1 at 2345, I am finally getting a very poor carrier near the off-frequency reported by others from R. Panamericana, La Paz. And there is even some Spanish audio, maybe religious talk, with words like ``el señor`` and ``la vida``. A much weaker carrier on 6105 which had usually been dominating, presumed China radio war until just before 2400. Frequency measured as 14 clix of 40 Hz each above 6105.0 as compared to WWV 5000.000, but margin of error of at least plus/minus one click (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN. 9710, Dec 1 at 2136, very poor, but unmistakable VIRI news theme, meaning they`ve got the Qur`an stuff over with, and then sounds Russish, but it`s really ``Bossni`` per schedule, which is tantamount to Serbo-Croatian, right? Altho no longer P.C. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN [and non]. Tratando de escuchar a `Amigos de la Onda Corta` en su horario previo, el sábado 1 de diciembre a las 0605 TU, sintonicé a 5965 para escuchar a algo distinto y no relacionado a los medios. Igualmente el sábado a las 2337, mejor on 9535, y también en 9620, 6125, una entrevista acerca de la Virgen de los Ángeles en Madrid. Parecen haber cambiado el horario sin aviso previo, pero ahora según dice:

Las horas son: ``Domingo a las 13.00 horas UTC y Lunes a las 00.00 horas UTC`` y el audio del último programa del 30 de noviembre dura 50:49 en vez de unos 25 minutos. Asunto: ``REE estrena programación``
Lo que hasta hora no tengo tiempo para escuchar.

enlace a parilla de programación:
[sic] no funciona ni corregido(?) a:

I was reporting without delay to SS, PP and II DX groups that REE`s Spanish DX program did not appear at the first two scheduled times for it, even on the few frequencies left this week, but its website shows two new times and extended from 25 to 51 minutes: Sun 1300 (when we`ll see if 17595 to NAm remains reactivated like Saturday), UT Mon 0000, both to be confirmed.

At 0027 UT Dec 2, still no signal on 6055, where the English hour to North America is allegedly about to be revived (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TAIWAN [non]. CORRECTING my previous report headed POLAND [non]:
15180, Nov 28 at 1455, MRP [sic] with ID and schedule in Russian, pronouncing ``UTC`` as in English, bit of music and off at 1457*. Good signal. This is via FRANCE, 500 kW, 60 degrees from Issoudun per HFCC at 1400-1500 [sic].

I said ``MRP`` because the partial ID I copied was ``Mezhdunarodnoye Radio ---`` and I thought the third word was something like Polonia, to the extent that in looking this up in HFCC I didn`t realize that it was really a Taiwan relay scheduled, i.e. M. R. Tayvanya. Tnx to Kai Ludwig for suggesting they got the wrong feed off the satellite, but I think this was just my mistake (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9990, Dec 2 around 0030, no signal from WTWW-2, nor on night frequency 5085 at 0307 check, which had been usually on air late Saturday evenings (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1645 monitoring: confirmed on WTWW-1, 5830, UT Sunday Dec 2 at 0500, but the signal is weakening with dropping winter MUF; maybe working better at longer skip distances than the megameter from Lebanon to here. Remaining chances on WRMI 9955: Sunday 0900, 1630, Mon 0530, Tue 1200 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VATICAN. 7250, Dec 1 at 2139, VR IS, fair signal, 2140 `LDC` and into Arabic. This is now an isolated transmission, the only one in the evenings on 7250 from SMG, still used more but not continuously in the mornings (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
