Glenn Hauser logs July 28-29, 2014

** BOLIVIA [and non]. 6155.1, July 29 at 0057, two weak carriers here making a LAH with each other; the stronger one no doubt R. Fides on its typical offset, but the weaker one seems to be slightly higher than that rather than 6155.0. Only other thing in schedules is AIR Urdu service via Aligarh (which was fair on 11620, but not enough on 6155++ to attempt a //) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 15630, July 29 at 0052, VP music, so ERTOpen must be back on air after a few days` silence: yes, // much stronger 9935 and 9420, VG and VG (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 15715-15720-15725, July 28 at 2000, DRM Noise from RNZI is in well; also on 17670-17675-17680, as early as 0104 UT July 29 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OMAN. 15140, July 29 at 0113, JBA carrier, presumed RSO, since it`s missing from 9500 and alternate 15355; at first check 0055 I couldn`t hear any of them (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, July 29 at 0058, carrier from R. Chaski until cutoff at 0106:26.5*, which is 23 seconds later than last check a quadrinite ago, slippage averaging 5.75 seconds later per uniday; as another grand precession is underway (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 3185 // much better 5050, July 29 at 0116, WWRB is BSing on both as sometimes happens when there is nothing much on its separate schedule to broadcast (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SRI LANKA. 11905, July 29 from *0114:11.5 carrier on, 0114:45.5 adding musical modulation, 0115:18 ending 2+1 timesignal and SLBC sign-on; very poor with flutter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1731 monitoring: no show on the Monday 2100 airing on WRMI, 15770: 2059.5, BS interrupted for BZ ID, but right back to BS at 2100, and still going at 2108, 2120 chex. Better luck next:
Tue 1100 on WRMI 9955
Wed 0630 on HLR 7265-CUSB
Wed 1315 on WRMI 9955
Wed 1430 on HLR 7265-CUSB
Wed 2100 on WBCQ 7490v

** U S A. 9495, UT Tue July 29 at 0053, WRMI, `La Rosa de Tokio` is wrapping up, Omar in studio, with Arnaldo on the phone.

9955 webcast, UT Tue July 29 at 0300, début of `From Russia with Love`, Voice of Russia show now added to WRMI. M&W dialogue, surely scripted but attempting to sound otherwise; really silly conversation, of some mild interest for criticizing certain aspects of life in Russia, like garbage everywhere around Moscow; boil water before drinking (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12105, July 28 at 1951, WTWW-3 is back to the Bibling, in Spanish, 2000 Brazuguese. Does this mean WTWW-2 is back on the air after a week? Yes, 9930 with BS; and 9475, WTWW-1 with SFAW, all very strong at this hour and all on the air for the moment. By 0059 July 29, 12105 has weakened to only fair level, and back in Russian post-midnight-in-Moscow, after 0100 alternate deceased PPP English sermon to that on 9475 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505.2, July 28 at 2008, JBA carrier in daytime noise level, presumably the exciter of a few watts that WRNO never turns off (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Re my AJO beacon on 13560: The WUNclub archive of a sesquidecade ago shows several frequencies, but not this one for AJO as the USAF base at Incirlik, TURKEY:
Surely if the call AJO were still in use it would have been logged sometime during the existence of the UDXF yg. It appears that Incirlik Air Base is still active. BTW, it appears that all three I`s are properly dotted, including the capital one. Wikipedia says the name means ``fig tree grove``. But I surely have a much closer beacon.

Chris Smolinski replies: ``Hi Glenn, There's a lot of legal Part 15 beacons around 13560; that webpage on is for unlicensed beacons that operate elsewhere. New Part 15 beacons often pop up, so it could be a new one. They tend to be located all over the US. That band is also licensed for ISM (industrial/scientific/medical) use, so there's a lot of QRM present from those operations. I'm not hearing anything at present (1730z) but I'll try again later. There's loggings of Part 15 beacons on the Beacon forum:,9.0.html
No one has put together a list of them on the wiki yet, but that would be an interesting project. I'm not aware of an all inclusive list of Part 15 beacons on 13560`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
