Glenn Hauser logs November 22-23, 2016

** AUSTRALIA. 4910, Nov 22 at 0822, Oz talk vs CODAR. It`s VL8T, Tennant Creek NT, just before the 0830 QSY to 2485. Unfortunately I am awake at this hour for a frequency I don`t hear elsewhen. Weaker than VL8A 4835 Alice, which stays there 24 hours and is easy around sunrise (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [and non]. 9280, Nov 23 at 0019, big S9+25 signal in Chinese as I am tuning between 9330 and 9265. It`s a CNR1 jammer, but nothing else heard; represented by the asterisk in this Aoki entry:
``9280*SOH Xi Wang Zhi Sheng 2212-1711 1234567 Chinese 0.1 ND ? TWN 2610N 11955E SOH b16``

Then I put 9280 on the PL-880 as I continue to bandscan on the NRD-545 to find how many more CNR1s are incoming in the next few minutes: 
0026,  9670, an echo apart plus CCI
0026,  9675, synchronized
0028,  9845, very poor with echo
0028,  9880, with CCI, not synch
0033, 11530, echo and CCI from WRMI
0035, 11750, echo
0037, 11945, echo and CCI
0037, 11960, echo
0041,  7580
Recheck at 0103, 9280 is off (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 9750, Nov 23 at 0027 soft song, fair signal with flutter. Aoki shows the only thing is PBS Nei Menggu, 50 kW, 36 degrees from Hohhot (favorable for us far beyond). Could well be, considering how many CNR1s I am getting on 31m (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. Terry L Krueger replies to my log of ``RR`` Reloj sounder on 1020: ``I hear 1020 Reloj regularly overnight. Believe I've heard Artemisa here overnight as well so inconclusive as to source. Daytime -- such as right now at 1530 GMT -- Artemisa strong on 1020, parallel 770. Never a Reloj daytime here but if it's a dedicated Reloj on the eastern half of the island, I'd not hear it from this location. Had the Artemisa overnight Reloj relay around 0840 GMT today on 770. Artemisa at 1126 GMT recheck`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 9490, Nov 23 at 0024, lite pulse jamming and no Radio República yet, so despite registry starting at 0000 via FRANCE, evidently not currently starting until 0100 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 1190, Nov 23 at 0112, Spanish M&W Catholic talk dominant from N/S, not // WEWN 5810, about trip to Ciudad de México, 0117 pause for corte comercial, Mexican promos, on ``Contacto 11-90 de AM``, i.e. XECT, 10000/100 watts, Monterrey NL, way after sundown (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PALAU. 9930, Tue Nov 22 at 0801, news about new Fukushima quake from USA network, right into men`s incontinence commercial with 800 number --- Does T8WH really know its audience beyond the 318 degree beam in Asia? HFCC has HBN registered for 24 hours on 9930, but Aoki shows it not starting until 0800 M-F with a semihour of news and music (really from South Bend, no doubt). Aoki includes individual program info for WHR frequencies, and some other stations. Fair S9 to S6 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU [and non]. 5980, Nov 23 at 0100, Cuba`s pointless pulse jamming does not totally block a carrier from R. Chaski, until autocutoff at 0104:48* which is 26.5 seconds later than last timing four nights ago, November 19 until 0104:21.5*, or averaging 6.6 seconds later per (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 15580, Nov 22 at 1958, VOA talking about opioid poisoning; probably a USG editorial to conclude the hour, but she`s cut off incomplete at 1959*. At 2000, Vatican is supposed to take over from BOTSWANA, but if so, not enough to break thru the squelch on the BST-1 caradio which had no trouble stopping on Botswana (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1852 monitoring: confirmed Tuesday November 22 at 2130 on WRMI 15770, fair. Also confirmed UT Wed Nov 23 at 0030 on WBCQ, 9329.93v-CUSB, good S9. (Before WBCQ came on, at 0019 I noticed some very poor 2-way on about 9330.9-USB).

Next: Dave Kenny reports that as of Nov 22, WRMI resumed non-BS programming during the 14-15 UT hour on 9955, so maybe that had been a mistake, and WOR will be back Wed at 1415.5. Also:
Wed 2200   WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Thu 0030   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW

** U S A. 5850, Nov 22 at 0819, WRMI with another unexpected World Music hour, song in French; 0827 African mbira music. While 5950 is running Brother Scare.

11580, Tue Nov 22 at 2030, WRMI still with World Music, starting the Council of Europe Ode to Joy rap song, and more old favorites until 2100 switch to Brother Scare.

9955, Tue Nov 22 at 2100 check, this WRMI is in World Music, Andean quena tune, instead of Brother Scare who probably lasted until 2100. (2200-2300 would be the Radio Libertad jammed prepeat, but not checked today.) After 2300, sounds like Hobart Radio International? He`s scheduled for 2330, while Tue at 2300 is Radio Northern Ireland. Some jamming continues, but intensifies after 2400 against Radio Libertad.

7780 & 7730, Nov 23 at 0040, both these WRMIs are still off.

5950, UT Wed Nov 23 at 0052, WRMI with Adrian Sainsbury talking about RNZI, presumably during a Wavescan, while 5850 is Slovakia in English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, Nov 22 at 0820, WTWW-2 is on with music as Ted says it`s an ``ungodly hour``, disrespectfully keeps talking over a Diana Ross song: it`s all about the DJ, not the music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5890, UT Wed Nov 23 at 0054, WWCR with hateful anti-Semitic talk, e.g. referring to ``rat-faced Jew-boy Chuck Schumer``, ``Jewish mafia``. Guy on phone with epithets for many politicians based on their Jewish ethnicity. Sounds like same troll I heard the other night on WWRB. Indeed, WWCR sked for WWCR-2 admits at 6-7 pm CST Tue it`s: 
``Patriots Unite Now --- Ken from the Bronx``. Later with Brother Scare on 5890 it`s a different WWCR-4 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Re ``870 UNID -- 10/30 1850 [EDT] – Country gospel music, ID as "Top Ten Radio" (I think), with WWL nulled, but losing out to it by 1852. Prime suspect looks like KPRM-MN, or maybe KAAN-MO? (GH-OK)``

In NRC DX News, David Yocis says: ``WPWT-TN, "Top Gun Radio," a sunset regular here``. That`s a 10 kW daytimer in Colonial Heights, near its address in Bristol, a long way from here (Glenn Hauser, KO, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 7480, Nov 23 at 0041, the humroar is back here, no carrier amid detectable. 0030-0100 is the break between scheduled VOA Burmese via Sri Lanka, and RFA Uighur via Tajikistan. Wolfgang Büschel replied to my previous report:

7480 Totally covered by CNR1 [ \\ Xian 7230 kHz] jamming programs with echo effect of multiple jamming bcast center? 0114 UT on Nov 22 here in southern Germany. > S=9+35dB powerhouse. 7480 kHz humroar, plus 10 x 100 Hertz buzz peaks visible on either sideband too!`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9192.0-LSB, Nov 23 at 0020, 2-way in Spanish, S6 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11570, Nov 23 at 0033, open carrier at S8, brief tone test and off 0034*. Nothing remotely listed in Aoki or HFCC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
