Glenn Hauser logs November 27, 2016

** CHINA. 6045, Nov 27 at 1342, CNR1 jammer with good signal during Chinese opera; vs unheard VOA Chinese at 12-14 on 6045 via Thailand. // weaker signals on 6105, 6125 and  almost as strong on 6180. Of those, only 6125 is legit, the others jamming Taiwan (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11840, Nov 27 at 0621, RHC Spanish still on here and at S9+10 level --- yet no spur carriers detectable on 11830 & 11850, which ought to be, with that fundamental signal level. Have they been eliminated, or 11840 switched over to a different transmitter for this? Possible, since fundamental now has suptorted modulation, not previously the case on 11840. At 1447 note that 11840 is off; all my previous logs of it during new morning transmission were during the 1300 hour, so apparent intentional closing circa 1400 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ERITREA. 7175.0, Nov 27 at 1411, weak signal with music, so VOBME-2 has jumped again. On any occasion it could be on here or 7180, or 7185, so not much point in reporting specific QSYs. 

7146.557, Nov 27 at 1413, weak signal with music, VOBME-1; both via long path along with Ethiopia 7235.61 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ETHIOPIA [and non]. 7235.61, Nov 27 at 1353, presumed R. Ethiopia in usual off-frequency range, first noted as het upon stronger 7235.0 VOA Korean via Tinian, measured at 1409; by long path, along with the Eritreans. Also with intermittent QRhaM on 7235-LSB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 17640, Nov 27 at 1853 check, MWV English is still missing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 9690, Nov 27 at 1458, REE IS at S4 with CCI, before India ends? This is for North America at 290 degrees, while 15390 for Mideast in exact opposite direxion 110 degrees, is much better S9, a fine example of MUF/LUHF trumping azimuth, which REE does not understand. No signal on 15500, one of many wooden alternatives in HFCC, some of them with wrong timespan starting at 1600 weekends, obviously a mistake in CET (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UGANDA [non]. 15240, Sunday Nov 27 at 1853, presumed Luganda talk on fair signal from R. Munansi via WWRB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9930 // 12105, Sunday Nov 27 at 1854, unusually WTWW-2 and WTWW-3 are // with amateurish hymn about Jesus coming since we`re having earthquakes, etc. Yeah, right. I suppose it`s Scriptures for America, since the same thing is also on 9475, WTWW-1, but not synchronized, like the other two (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9275, Nov 27 at 1853, WMLK is still off, altho the engineer should have been back for a week to fix stuff. No further update on their FB since Nov 7 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
