Glenn Hauser logs February 26, 2017

** BRAZIL [and non]. 6148-6157, peaking about 6153, Feb 26 at 0655, S9+20 RNA/RNB extremely distorted blob squeezed out of the weakened 6180 transmitter, like toothpaste from a broken tube, now extends around here; and with nothing in the way now, the weaker squish is audible 6120-6128 peaking at 6124, S8. Separations are very roughly minus 28 and minus 2 x 28 = 56 kHz.

Possibly a third even weaker one circa 6075, but not sure from same source. Cannot hear one circa 6095 vs Anguilla. Still nothing corresponding on the high side of 6180.

Wolfgang Büschel reports, ``Checked at 0914 UT Feb 26 on Florida, East Coast North America remote SDR unit: Wide range distorted Blob in range 6142.8 to 6150.6 kHz, S=9``

Roger Thayer in Germany sends a .png of The drift between 0100-0200z:
including an inset at 0130 of the VOA Radiogram rose during the KBC broadcast (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 6180, Feb 26 at 1415, double CNR1 talk echoing jamming, // single on 6125. 6180 of course is against R. Taiwan International, in Chinese at 10-16, but not audible at all; never mind the other ChiCom service scheduled on 6180, CNR-17 in Kazakh from Lingshi 725 site at 12-15, all per Aoki (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** COLOMBIA. 5910.264, Feb 26 at 0700, S9 music from Alcaraván Radio has drifted way up to here, but nothing to het it now. Much weaker S8 music signal presumed from sibling station La Voz de tu Conciencia on 6010.134, wavering (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)  

** CUBA. 9710, Feb 26 at 1439, RHC `En Contacto` with Arnie mentioning their 22mb frequency as 13760 (or maybe 13770), while it`s really 13740, duh! Which sets him off to extol how great a hamband nearby 20m is (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 15310, Feb 26 at 1458, exotic music, sort of African? More likely Romanian, as that language announcement mixes with a few seconds late 1400 timesignal; S8 to S3 fades. RRI in Romanian at 1400-1557, 300 kW, 285 degrees from Galbeni (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UGANDA [non]. Radio Munansi still gone: see U S A: WWRB

** U A E. 9580.103, Feb 26 at 1426, JBM talk until off just before 1430*. It`s DW in Pashto from 1400, following Dari from 1330, 250 kW, 45 degrees via perpetually inaccurate Al Dhabbaya site. Tnx so much to the ABC for getting R. Australia out of the way! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15240, Sunday February 26 at 1838, still *no* signal from WWRB, altho neighbor 15825 WWCR is detectable. Radio Munansi not heard since February 4, and assumed canceled. No further non-logs from here, until/unless it or something appear on 15240 from WWRB weekends.

3215/3195 is another matter, bigsig WWRB not on air UT Sunday when I checked the only other WWRB activity, but what about UT Mon & Tue in the 00/03 UT period? Supposed to change from 3215 to 3195 by 0200 in time for WWCR to start 3215. DST from March 13 might change that (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
