Glenn Hauser logs July 17, 2013

** BANGLADESH. 15505, July 17 at 1358, Bangladesh Betar is JBA with tone, then IS, so I stand by for a timesignal to time --- but IS runs slightly past the real 1400:00 and opening Urdu 5 seconds later; skipped the TS which would have been way off anyway (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 6070, July 17 at 0055, CFRX is back! I`ve been checking about three times a day since it disappeared and first time heard, immediately with ``News-talk 10-10`` ID, ads, fair signal as before. Its return was first noted a few hours earlier by Stephen C Wood, Massachusetts, July 16 at 2057 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. Firedrake [non], CNR1 jamming July 17 after 1300:
13130, poor at 1316
14700, fair at 1317
14750, good at 1317; at 1324 it`s about two seconds behind 15800
15115, good at 1318 with echo, CCI; not // or not synch with others
15195, very poor at 1318
15265, poor at 1319 in usual mix with other stuff plus het
15330, fair at 1319 but not synch 15115; vs BBC Uzbek
15545, poor at 1323
15570, poor at 1323, not synch with 14750 but with 15545
15800, good at 1323, // 14700 but not synch with 14750
16100, good at 1326
17080, very poor at 1328, // 14700, but not synch with 14750
17510, good at 1329-1330*, goes off when V. of Tibet Madagascar does; heard ``Chung-guo Hai-Chin`` mentioned a few times, means?

** INDONESIA. 9526-, July 17 at 1302, VOI sounds very poor tho generous meter puts it at S9+15, just barely modulated with sounders and talk but can`t be sure if language is English. Anyhow, this is much better than usual here. No July 17 log yet from Ishida, but he shows English has been starting one to eight minutes late in the past week. Ron Howard precised it yesterday at 9525.88 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MALI [non]. 17630, July 17 at 1331, CRI English `China Drive` discussing N Korean ship seized in Panamá; sufficient. I`ve filed it here to reiterate that altho in HFCC as Mali, leading some to log it as such, the same English hour is also listed as via Urumqi, East Turkistan, which has obviously replaced Bamako, as reception correlates with Kashgar, East Turkistan in CRI French during the same hour on 17560, 17650, and not with anything from Africa on 16m. Besides, modulation in normal, impossible for the Mali relay (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, July 17 at 0056, R. Chaski in Spanish. My logs around 0100 are normally with the DX-398 on the porch with short random wire, but since it`s raining, this time I employ the main rig FRG-7 inside but with its much longerwire external antenna, which makes the signal a bit better than usual. Muffled announcement mentions ``salvación``; 0103 sounder and presumed Creation Moment, usual anti-science bit, so I am certainly not missing any worthwhile programming. Cuts off at 0105:28* which is 5 seconds later than yesterday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SUDAN [and non]. 15400, July 17 at 0528, 1 kHz tone jammer and R. Dabanga via Madagascar, both poor; 0530 recheck, the tone has stopped as usual (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5050, July 17 at 0059, WWRB is back on with preacher, after missing 24 hours earlier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7341-USB, July 17 at 1309, ``Red Cloud 195`` ID and nothing further in next few minute, first noted as ACI to Navy MARS on 7345 which enjoyed a weak broadcast as BFO. That tactical call leads to Nebraska Civil Air Patrol (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9415-9470, July 17 at 0058, 0112, no sign of the monstrous blob infesting this region 24 hours earlier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11979, July 17 at 0529, the single-number CW intruder is back and resumes sending ``7`` over and over, but no signal at all from 11980 Turkey to beat against; is it off? Japan via France 11970 still in sufficiently (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
