Glenn Hauser logs May 14-15, 2017

** BRAZIL. 6059.85, May 15 at 0327, very poor carrier, presumed usual off-frequency SRDA Curitiba; in the absence of 6060 RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11856.04, May 15 at 0014, JBA carrier, maybe R. Aparecida, which I have not otherwise heard for a few weeks, always off-frequency to hi side of 11855, and even 11856+. Only other JBA ZY carrier on 25m at this time is 11764.6 SRDA; the ranx are thinning (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13740, May 15 at 0354, Spanish is // 9535, not 5025, so really RHC instead of Rebelde on 13740 as happened last night (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also BRAZIL 6059.85

** CUBA [and non]. 9490, UT Monday May 15 at 0340, wall of noise jamming dominates, so I strain to hear what`s under it, and conclude there really are two stations, as to be expected from overlapping MBR registrations, self-QRMing: Radio Repblica via FRANCE which on weekends runs an hour later until 0400; AND NHK in Japanese, SE from Germany which always starts at 0300. I compare it to // 6105 via France on another receiver, and the talk sounds the same but not in synch (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 6065, May 15 at 0325 talk in unID language, 0330 song, poor. Must be AWR in Malagasy this hour, 100 kW at 20 degrees per HFCC. They better watch out: if KIMF ever gets on the air from Nevada, it`s registered for 6065 at 01-06, 50 kW at 138 degrees in Spanish. And will VOH Zambia ever come back on 6065 in mornings? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 9560, May 15 at 0337, NHK in Swahili with big hum and wavering whistle, carrier wobbling but S9+30. This Talata unit is really ailing, also accompanied by S9 parasitic spur carriers without modulation very close to 9555 & 9565, the latter vs Cuban jamming still running long after Mart is finished. NHK normally loud and clear here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6924.9, May 15 at 0027, very poor, seems like there are two carriers, one with talk. Captain Morgan Shortwave, per these:,34881.0.html

** NORTH AMERICA. 6935-USB, May 15 at 0026, C&W vocal song at S5 in noise. Several other logs, all unID, enumerate tunes on a Mothers` Day theme:,34883.0.htmlo
At 0026 it was ``Mother Rose`` by Patty Smith (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7700.0, May 15 at 0317, new frequency for Station YHWH with the usual, S8 and somewhat suptorted, still at 0329 but gone at 0346. He`s no Marconi. Last night he was jumping all over the 7.6 MHz band to avoid jamming, but none heard of that tonight. Another new frequency then was 7630 per Rick Barton and Walt Salmaniw, so I check there, and find a JBA carrier but it`s wobbling and probably a receiver birdie (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 11825, May 15 at 0350 ME? music. Then English talk about radio, a letter to Bucharest, poor signal I first thought might be MWV on early, but it`s only RRI as scheduled with Listeners` Letterbox, // 9730 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9515, May 15 at 0339, VOT tune-in to Chinese portion of multi-lingual IDs, finally finishing with Turkish at 0340; during English broadcast, and on to music, S9+20.

11980, May 15 at 0352, classic TRT IS alternating with Turkish IDs leading up to Turkish service at 0400, S5 with flutter but strong modulation. Not the same IS they use before foreign languages (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 12045, May 14 at 1346, Korean talk and music, from VOA via TINIAN, about 4 seconds ahead of stronger // 12080 via Tinang, PHILIPPINES, which from further west, is more directly aimed USward (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1877 monitoring: confirmed Sunday May 14 at 1030 on HLR 9485-CUSB, weak in Bulgaria, says Ivo. Also confirmed here Sun May 14 after 2330 on WBCQ 9330.12v-CUSB, fair.

** U S A. 12105, May 15 at 0016, WTWW-3 is S5-S6 of dead air again; why bother at all to turn on the transmitter? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
