Glenn Hauser logs May 9, 2018

** AUSTRALIA. 4835, May 9 at 1048, JBA carrier in sideband splash of 4840 WWCR, weaker than 5055, and at this early hour I am not hearing any carriers on the regular Indian frequencies, so I suspect this is not Sikkim, but rather OzyRadio reactivated as expected. 

Ron Howard confirms: ``May 9, with brief check on 4835 kHz, at 1306 UT, to hear the distinctive "Waltzing Matilda." Great to have Craig's station back on the air, but as Rob Wagner has pointed out, the end of AIR Gangtok reception`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, May 9 at 1043, talk at S4-S7, but can`t tell language. Probably NBC here; Ron Howard has been reporting it frequently until 1200v*, altho off the air on some occasions, with no mention lately of the other 3325, RRI Palangkaraya. A great loss that Atsunori Ishida ceased updating his Indonesian monitoring surveys as of mid-December 2017:
but his archive remains (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, May 9 at 1244, RHC mainstream // 6000 // 6060, NOT separate `Mesa Redonda` TV soundtrack as alleged in the official schedule; MR remains weeknights at 23-24 when 6000 & 11950 do split away from the rest of RHC Spanish frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9155, May 9 at 1050, S9 of dead air with some deep fades, no doubt a Cuban spy numbers transmitter which Rick Barton et al., have logged; also a Sound of Hope/CNR1 jamming frequency, but not now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13740, May 9 at 1248, no signal from RHC; must be off as a higher one, 15230 is audible tho VP S4-S6. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 12035, May 9 at 1428, pulse jamming against nothing, and synchronized with same pulsing on stronger 11980 (vs RTTY 11981). Furthermore, the pulsing seems to match components of the wall-of-noise jamming on 11930 vs R.. Martí, so the higher ones must be spurious out of the 11930 pileup (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUATEMALA. 4055, May 9 at 1044, R. Truth at S9 to S9+10, with hard-sell preacher in English citing II Corinthians (which gets referenced a lot more than I, it seems, why? When I hear Corinthian, I think of fancy Greek capitals, or a TV broadcasting company which owned KOTV-6 Tulsa, 1969-1983, and also WISH-8 Indianapolis i.a.) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1929 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday May 9 at 1030 on WRMI, 9455, S9 with some deep fades to S3.

Full schedule for WOR on all outlets, not just SW; podcast linx:

** U S A. 3215, May 9 at 1042, open carrier/dead air at S9+20, presumably WWCR-1 still not back in service, tho applying modulation to it would seem to do the trick. However, #1 is supposed to be on 15795 between 09 and 12, including some Russian; that of course is not propagating now, nor 15825, should one be on the air. OR 3215 could be a different WWCR transmitter for some reason, or even less likely, a test from WWRB which is ordinarily on 3215 briefly in the evening before 0100 when WWCR starts; and WWRB had already moved to 5050 for the summer (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 2940, 2960, 3030, May 9 at 1026-1040, probable MW harmonix, mainly JBA carriers. 

2940, of particular interest, since Dave Valko, PA, had HJNT, Cali, Colombia on April 4 and 6, 2 x 1470+ measured on 2940.13. So I measure this one hoping for a match, but find it on 2939.94; it`s almost gone by 1033.

2960.00, achieves a trace of music modulation at 1032 UT. Previously IDed here was WERM, Mobile AL, 2 x 1480.

3030, May 9 at 1037, JBA carriers, seems two double-hetting. 3 X 1010?

These are on the R75, which also gets JBA carriers on many nearby frequencies: 2950, 2970, 2980, 2990, 3010, 3020, 3040, 3050, 3080, 3090 --- but all of these vanish when I switch from Preamp 2 to Preamp 1, or Preamps off; thus I think they are receiver overload images; and most do not work out to be possible 2x or 3x MW harmonix anyway. 

This is NOT the case with the first three, 2940, 2960, 3030, which are still there with no preamp and believed to be real DX receptions. Pre-sunrise is certainly the best time of day for these, when I am seldom awake (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
