Glenn Hauser logs May 9-10-11, 2017

** ARGENTINA [non]. 9395, May 11 at 0059, WRMI ID in Spanish by Rubén Guillermo Margenet in Argentina, and into RAE ATTW relay in English, good. Still NOT // 11580 as on the sked grid, but instead `Sounding the Alarm` apocalypticism (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** CHINA [and non]. 6110.145v, May 10 at 1235, CNR1 jamming vs VOA Chinese via Thailand. A confusing situation here. In AM mode I get a SAH on 6110.0 itself, and hear a het of about 290 Hz, wavering slightly between D and Eb above middle C. However, with BFO on, I get a carrier zero-beat circa 6110.145. All gone by 1300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** CHINA [non?]. 7300, May 10 at 1254, orchestral music, 1256 Chinese announcement, fair with flutter. But unsure whether it was RTI as scheduled 1000-1300, or more likely *CNR1 jamming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [and non]. 15040, May 10 at 1247, CNR1 echo jamming vs All India Radio`s only Chinese broadcast. Poor, poor, PR China, so afraid of letting its people hear what their neighbor has to say to them. Strangely, Aoki misses flagging this one as *jammed, just the // 11845 and 17705. Also Tibetan of course, but also most of AIR GOS ENGLISH frequencies, according to Aoki are *jammed, as far too many Chinese now understand English! 7270, 9445, 9690, 9705, 9910, 11580, 11620, 11670, 11710, 11935, 13605, 13695, 13720, 15030, 15410, 15770, 17670. Bully!

Meanwhile, China blasts India with clear SW broadcasts in five languages (Bengali, Chinese, English, Hindi, Tamil) at multiple times on multiple frequencies, also on MW; and makes unnecessary co-channel interference to AIR domestic broadcasts. Bully!! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** CUBA. 11530, May 10 at 1734, open S9 carrier, as usual for extended periods out of the HM01 spy numbers transmitter --- except it`s not open: undermodulated rock music in Spanish, not // 11760, the only RHC on the air at this hour. Not cross-mod either as does not go away with attenuation, or disabling preamp. 1736 quick Spanish announcements by YL with phone numbers, apparently a request show, song; 1740 caller briefly on air, phone numbers again, far too fast to copy, more music. But 1744 abrupt cut to digibleeps and then 5-digit SS YL spy numbers start with 54483, bleeps and alternating in usual format. Guess is R. Rebelde, but no // 5025 audible at midday if it is even on air. Could be any other Cuban network or station. 1815 recheck, 11530 is off, and now the spybleeps and numbers are on 11635, no music (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1877. DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** OKLAHOMA. 1420.0, May 10 at 1224 UT, CBS Sports Radio // 1390 KCRC Enid, of which this is the long-standing spur. Usually it makes an audible het with real 1420 stations, but either accidentally or deliberately, KCRC has tightened up the spur so that now it only makes a fast SAH. Ditto the other one on 1360.0. Also makes it harder to detect the second-order much weaker spurs at 2 x 30 kHz above and below, i.e. 1330 & 1450 (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TIBET [non]. 15527, May 10 at 1250, JBA carrier, signature split-frequency of Voice of Tibet via TAJIKISTAN, and confirmed by Aoki listing as of May 4 showing this at 1235-1305 in Tibetan, then another semihour on 15528, both of which are subject to frequent changes. Would be jammed by CNR1 on 15525 or 15530, but not detected now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1876 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday May 10 at 2100 on WBCQ 7490 webcast; also confirmed Wed May 10 after 2330 on WBCQ 9330.0v-CUSB, fair.

** U S A. 5830, May 10 at 0547, WTWW-1 is S9 but just barely modulated.

9930, May 10 at 1818 and still/again at 1853 check, WTWW-2 is a bigsig of dead air instead of Dave Ramsey. The other two are modulating English SFAW. One has the impression that the person running this station can`t stand to really listen to it either (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1480, May 10 at 1220 UT, ``This is KBXD, Dallas`` ID loop with percussion repeating every 9 seconds --- a DXer`s dream! No more longer loop offering station ``for rent``. Does this mean they got a bite but not yet digested? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1877, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
