Glenn Hauser logs July 29-30, 2013

** CHINA. Firedrake [non] CNR1 jamming July 29: I was just about to skip searching for it this day until I ran across it on an unusual frequency and then sought out others:
17900, poor at 1348 with flutter; Aoki has this as one of countless 100-watt Sound of Hope nuisance frequencies. None in the 16s or 18s tho EAST TURKISTAN CRI channels also in: 17560 best, plus 17630, 17650

15265, fair at 1352 with het
15195, very poor at 1349
15115, fair at 1348 with heavy CCI
14700, fair at 1355; none in the 13s, 12s
11640, fair at 1357 // 14700; also on usual 11785, 11805, 11990

** CUBA. 5040, July 29 at 0531 is tonite`s anomaly from RHC: English frequency off the air, while 6010, 6060, 6125 and 6165 are more than enough. Circa 1345, 17730 is also off the air in Spanish while 17580 is audible (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. Sporadic E opening into VHF fires up July 29 after monitoring snow on channel 2 for almost an hour, UT:

1452 on 2, fade in with f bug in LR, i.e. Televisa net-4 foro; more from SSW than SSE so not XHY and later IDed below as XEFB Monterrey NL

1452 on 3, also signs of a video signal here; 1455 fades in a bit more

1507 on 2, Azteca net-7 bug in UR with time & temp, probably XHTAU Tampico with Monterrey programming as usual mornings

1511 on 4, MUF briefly hits here with algo

1519 on 2, fades in f bug in LR again, and this time also TELEACTIVA in UR, i.e. XEFB-TV, Monterrey NL

1527 on 2, fade in HOY bug in LL, sponsor BECALOS in LR, CDT clock: Televisa net-2

1540 on 2, Televisa net-5 bug LR with animation, occasional audio

1542 on 3, net-5 with animation // 2; it`s letterboxed; at first without reaching color burst

1600 on 2, some CCI again as MUF dips and surges

1611 on 2, YL on screen is not blonde, unusual for Mexican TV; maybe still HOY show

1611 on 3, net-5 bug LR, still animation

1616 on 2, YL plugging her Twitter, mentions `Hola, México`, another program name, not Hoy? Also made out some large V`s on screen

1629 on 2, CCI mixture includes Gala TV swirl in UR = Televisa net-9, and apparently a court show with YL judge

1636 on 4, fade-in with ads including Colgate (3 syllables). BTW, colgar means hang up (as a phone), but not with a form like colgate

1642 on 4, Woody Woodpecker, net-5 LR

1648 on 2, Gala swirl, net-9 UR; this seems to the court show amid CCI

1700+, mostly gone and it`s lunch time

1744 on 2, novela with Azteca net-13 bug in UR

1759 on 3, algo fade-in with video only

1848 on 2, burst of a few seconds in Spanish, novela? bug in UR reminds me of TU CANAL in Juárez, but not positive. Behaved like meteor scatter, but signs of weak Es signals remain

1859 on 2, bug in UR looks like two lines in a circle, such as the number 11, but that`s not Once network`s logo; maybe just one vertical, i.e. Mundo Fox, i.e. XHRIO. Nothing further


** MOROCCO [and non]. 9579.1, July 29 at 0410, very poor carrier here, and a JBA one on 9580. Médi-1, Nador is well-known to be on 9579.1, and people logging ME music, Arabic or French without an ID on ``9580`` need to be sure of the exact frequency.

Saudi Arabia is also listed on 9580 at this time, so that could be the other signal as long as it`s not 9579+. Not 9580 Gabon either, which has not been confirmed on air at all for months. Before 0400 and at 0519 recheck I could detect only 9579.1 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1650, July 29 at 0535 UT, `Red Eye Radio` is inbooming for a minute before fading down, no doubt KYHN ``Fort Smith AR`` really in OK. Affiliate list is just as mixed up as their politix, showing sic:
``KWHN 1320 AM / 1650 AM Fort Smith AR
KYHN 1320 AM Fort Smith AR.``
KYHN really 1650 has become quite uninteresting since their two months of promo stunting (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, July 29 at 0058-0059:54.5*, R. Chaski JBA carrier vs splash from 5990 CUBA and also jamming pulses audible with no Radio Martí; that`s 10 seconds later than two nights ago. July 30 JBA carrier vs noise level 0055-0100:00*, five point five seconds later (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SERBIA [non]. 9685, July 29 at 0059, still no signal from IRS North American service; wonder if they QSYed without notice. Surely not to winter frequency yet, 6190 --- no, next check at 0056 July 30, not on either frequency. Time to check their own website for the latest info:
Does it not show 9685 still in use until 0130? Of course not! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
