Glenn Hauser logs July 4-5, 2016

DX/SWL/Media Programs:

Alan Roe`s Hitlist of SW station linx:

World of Radio schedules:

** ALBANIA. 9855-, July 5 at 0144 check, R. Tirana still suffering horrible problem of humroar atop some talk in presumed English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** AUSTRALIA. 12085, July 5 at 1306, RA reactivated here after AWOL yesterday, `The Daily Planet` introducing eclectic music hour in store, including double-bass (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHAD. 6165, re my presumed log July 4 circa 0600, Thorsten Hallmann and Wolfgang Büschel in Germany say they are still not hearing it in their evenings, very irregular? Nor could I detect it July 5 circa 0600 as RHC stayed on (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 11785, July 5 at 1333, Firedragon! jamming music against understation in Chinese, which is VOA at 09-15 alternating Thailand and Tinang sites. Normally it`s CNR1 jamming instead, but familiar segments including ``ramshorn`` at 1351, drumming 1352. Cursory bandscan 10-17 MHz does not find any OOB FD nor elsewhere on 25m (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, July 5 at 0418 tuneby RHC English, Ed mentions they are on [anonymous] SW frequencies, also on FM 102.5 Habana, 103.1 Mayabeque, and 91.7 [sic] Isle of Pines (a.k.a. Youth). While website
which is really embedded pdf, continues to claim it`s on 97.1. Contadixion good enough for unelected government work? It also claims webcasting is in ``audio real``, while it`s really Windows media (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6960.00-USB, July 4 at 2353, unID S5 signal with song about rock & roll. Also unID in only two other logs here:

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1832 monitoring: confirmed Monday July 4 after 2330 on WBCQ, 9330.000-CUSB! S9+10. Next:
Tue 2130   WRMI 15770 to NE
Tue 2330   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Wed 1315.5 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 2100   WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Wed 2330   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW

** U S A. 12105, July 5 at 0145, S9+30, WTWW-3 is back to Bibling, this time in Arabic. Are they now jumbling the language rotation randomly? Arabic in the middle of the Afro-Eur-Asian night makes no more sense than Russian, of course. Arabic was originally at 22-23 UT per
which expresses times only in CDT; ``Worldwide``, indeed! 

12104.980, July 5 at 1846 check, WTWW-3, Ted spells B-I-B-L-E a few times for the illiterate audience, announcing in English that this hour is in Russian --- that`s more like a reasonable time, if it really propagate all the way to Moscow. So I check UTwente at 1851 and hear only a trace of talk below the noise level (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VANUATU. 7259.965, July 5 at 0611, JBA but steady carrier here with noise level amounting to S5, also vs intermittent QRhAM on LSB. Presumed R. Vanuatu. Wolfgang Büschel had it on 7259.957, June 7 via SDR in Brisbane; Ron Howard says it was measured June 27 by Mauno Ritola on 7259.943 with carrier staying on long past earlied 1018 sign-off; how is that saving money? Their sunset was 0625 UT. Urumqi is also on 7260 at 0611 per Aoki, but it`s midday there (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11995, July 5 at 0349, strong S9+ carrier and off. Most likely MADAGASCAR, tuning up for the BBC Somali at 0400-0430 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
