Glenn Hauser logs February 10, 2017

** CUBA. 5025 & 5040, Feb 10 at 0659, both Rebelde and RHC are off, and so are 5010 & 5055 mixes (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUINEA [non]. 9650, Feb 10 at 0716, very poor S2-S4 signal; hard to believe Conakry is on now, since Nigeria is VG on 9689.970. Maybe V of Korea already (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 11600, Feb 10 at 1457, Denge Kurdistane, good signal mixing music and talk until 1500:05* cut modulation and carrier, leaving a much weaker carrier, and no modulation on it until about a sesquiminute later. Typical behaviour for site swap, but which one is stronger, if either, varies greatly from day to day. Supposedly going from PRIDNESTROVYE to FRANCE, per Ivo Ivanov (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 9689.970, Feb 10 at 0706, surprised to hear VON in French, frequency reactivated; it`s S9, the SSOB between 9395 & 9955 WRMIs. last I logged it was Oct 2, 2015 as in DXLD-15-40. And // 7254.923, S9+10, good modulation on both and synchronized so from same site, which? See also GUINEA.

11770.930, Feb 10 at 1820, VP S3 signal with trace of modulation. Checking here in case another mostly-inactive VON frequency could resume; maybe, but can`t be positive this is not a receiver birdie (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7730 // 6855 // 5850, Fri Feb 10 at 0704, WRMI with `Viva Miami` episode in Spanish again about the Whites` visit to Chequia; NOT `Media Network Plus` which continues to show on the sked grid, that really airing 24 hours earlier on Thursdays (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, Feb 10 at 1815, JBA carrier; can this be KVOH? Maybe exciter. Recheck at 1919, now S9+20 of distorted music, shortly cutting off at 1920*. Stayed with it and never came back by 1955. More anomalous behaviour from Simi, nominal sign-off 1900 on weekdays. When will they ever get their replacement transmitter going? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1840-AM, Feb 10 at 0721 UT, JBA carrier. Checking for WMMN Fairmont WV, 2 x 920, as Larry Fravel had reported it to IRCA, intermittently from 7 miles away. It`s 5000/200 watts U1, with sports format, so should be more likely when on day power, SR/SS. Larry doesn`t say whether he was hearing it day and/or night (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
