Glenn Hauser logs September 8-9, 2009

** CHINA . Firedrake check Sept 9 at 1359 before pause: fair on 9000, poor on 8400 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [non]. 9650, at 1320 Sept 9, worse than usual mix of CRI via Sackville in English and RN via Tinang in Dutch, because they are roughly 25-30 Hz apart, making rippling SAH, and the Dutch audio is stronger than usual. If I had to guess, I would say Sackville is more likely to be off-frequency. 1327 made usual switch to RN in English for two sesquiminutes; could make out ``verbally attacking`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA . RHC, Sept 8 at 0607: this time instead of one frequency for English there are three: 6010, 6060 and 6140. You never know (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA . VOI, 9524.9, Tue Sept 8 at 1325, can barely tell that another weekly excursion to Banjarmasin is underway, as too undermodulated vs noise and fading, YL mentioning Banj, 1329 conversation with the guy there (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** RUSSIA . VOR, 15605, Sept 8 at 1502 YL with news in English manages to squeeze between WEWN on 15610 and WEWN spur on 15600; more problem was the splash from fundamental 15610 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH AFRICA. 15660, Sept 8 at 1509 in Swahili mentioning a number of African countries: Channel Africa as scheduled (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WEWN, Sept 8 at 1458 on 11520 with Salve Regina IS; 1500 Spanish ID giving 11520 and 11550, and now 11550 is also on the air; meanwhile 15610 in English has the old spurs detectable on 15600 and 15620; see RUSSIA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ###
