Glenn Hauser logs February 10-11, 2017

** BRAZIL. 11855.01, Feb 11 at 0005, Rádio Aparecida RCC talk in Brazuguese, appearing back almost on-frequency! Had been circa 11854.9 for months. We`ll see how long this last. Probably // relay by RRB2 on 11934.82 but too weak there to be sure (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 1610, Feb 11 at 0555 UT, South Asian music, so is it CHHA Toronto, Voces Latinas? Not all their programming is Latin, notably 03-04 UT Punjabi Tue-Sat, and 04-05 UT Mon. But until 0600 UT (1 am local) sked here
`El Nocturno de Radio Voces Latinas` which implies Spanish. 

There is another ethnic Canadian on 1610, CHRN, Montreal, supposed to be all-Asian, with only 1 kW vs 6.25 from CHHA, and closer CHHA normally blox it here; but this website is also blocked as insecure:
but I get thru to this one:
where its disorganized and incomplete program schedule
gets no closer than this:
10:00 pm to 04:00 am Punjabi News Monday to Friday

Their about-us page does not explain what Humsafar means, just:

``Radio Humsafar is a twenty four hour a day, seven days a week source for South Asian programming. On air in several places in Canada as well as all over the world via Internet. Radio Humsafar broadcasts in Punjabi, Hindi, Urdu and English. Radio Humsafar reaches over 1.5 million listeners throughout the world.

Radio Humsafar enjoys a top notch team of broadcast professionals with wide international experience. From Punjabi and Hindi musicals to Classical and Ghazal programs, from talk shows on current and controversial issues to live news direct from India and Pakistan. Radio Humsafar connects Canadians and Americans of South Asian descent to their roots, tradition and culture.

Radio Humsafar – dynamic, energetic, stimulating, informational, and entertaining.`` 

So are those its literal meanings? Google translate cannot deal with Humsafar, at least when spelt Romanly (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11830 & 11850, Feb 11 at 0004, RHC spurs with Spanish audio // fundamental 11840 which is suptorted. I`ve yet to find such minus/plus 10 kHz sputnix attached to any other RHC frequency, and wonder where same transmitter may be in use elsewhen? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [and non]. 5935, Feb 11 at 1358, Shiokaze with piano music, marred by rapidly pulsing tone jammer, approx. 1050 Hz above and below. 1400 JSR off leaving much weaker jammer carrier on 5935.0 plus the tones. Shiokaze back on at *1404:25 as jamming continues (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA [non]. 9689.97, Feb 11 at 0601, no sign of VON, 23 hours after heard reactivated. 7254.9 was not on before 0600 with any IS/leadup, but underway at 0601 in Hausa. Maybe 31m propagation unfavorable, as no 9650 Guinea, and 9575 Morocco is a JBA carrier. Nor any 9690 at 0651 check, when 9915 BBC is good from Ascension (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA [and non]. 9610, Feb 11 at 0016, RRI in Spanish with somewhat weaker CCI. HFCC shows TWO China services simultaneously, CNR Mongolian from Beijing site, and CRI Hakka from Kunming. Sounds unChinese, so I`ll go with Beijing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** UKRAINE [non]. 11580, Feb 10 at 2357, WRMI in English narration of a story set in Russia, with classical music bridges, fair S8-S5; 2359 outro as `The Reading Lounge`, just in time for cut to BZ WRMI ID. No ID for the station relayed, but we know it`s RUI, as same program title I logged on Sept 25, 2014, when WRMI was just starting to revive and relay RUI. Now the 2330 broadcast is M-F only, and only on 11580 (while 5850 & 6855 are competing with Radio Prague), but RUI is 7-daily at 0200 on same plus 6855 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1864 monitoring: confirmed Friday February 10 at 2230 on WRMI 5950 & 6855, both JBA, and // 11580, S9+20. Also confirmed UT Sat Feb 11 starting at 0030:03.5 on WBCQ, 9329.87v-CUSB (Brother Scare was cut off at 0029:15 for WBCQ ID and promotion). 

NOT confirmed Sat Feb 11 from 1525 on Hamburger Lokalradio, 7265-CUSB via UTwente SDR: only noise and S Asian songs from CRI Hindi service, no Media Network Plus, nor World of Radio during chex every few minutes; at 1555 *maybe* a trace of gh underneath. Hindi service finishes circa 1559 but still two very weak stations, also Azad Kashmir? 

*1601 CRI theme cuts on 7265 very strong, opening MRK in Russian. So is UTwente webcast running a full minute behind? I then try to hear a timesignal thru it, but 10000 & 15000 have music alternating with pips, no doubt that Italian blocker whose pips I would not rely on to be precise; can`t get anything from RWM, CHU, or WWV either.

** U S A. 7490+v // 5130-v, UT Sat Feb 11 at 0125, WBCQ as `Allan Weiner Worldwide` is lengthily lecturing a caller on cosmology. Unusually, these two are synchronized instead of a considerable delay on 5130 routed thru Area 51 server (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5830, Feb 11 at 0349, VP carrier, perhaps WTWW-1 very out of order, and nothing on sometimes extended day frequency 9475; yet neighbors WWCR are inbooming: 5890 S9+30, 5935 S9+40 --- and 5085 WTWW-2 with music is also S9+30/40. 0551 recheck, now 5830 is S9+45 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4070.372, Feb 11 at 0353, beacon GT is JBA. Still waiting for any info about QTH; if these are in the milliwatts, do not need to be licensed or secretive (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4739.0, Feb 11 at 0544, mystery open carrier is S9-S6 vs CODAR (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
