Glenn Hauser logs July 27, 2010

** ANTARCTICA. 15476, LRA36 is back! Detectable for the first time since July 8: Tuesday July 27 at 1313 carrier with some modulation audible, 1316 music, 1340 YL announcement; peaking around 1355 and then quickly fading but carrier still there at 1411. Seems right on 15476 this time. Meanwhile, no signal from neighbors on 15480.

Maruits Van Driessche in Belgium was also getting it at exactly the same time and sent me a screen shot at 1339 on 15476.000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. WWCR inbooming on 15825, July 27 around 1400, so sporadic E in play. Started monitoring NTSC channel 2 with antenna toward OKC; suddenly at 1453 fades in 7-day forecast in Celsius, spoken timecheck in English at 8:53, and Global bug in LR. Therefore it can only be CICT Calgary; rotated toward them but signal had already weakened, in and out, mostly out. But bodes well for further TVDX axion later today. 1459 fade in again, ``Global Calgary Morning News`` flashed briefly on screen. 1200+ mile range.

The 6m Es map at
showed a ham contact between OK and AB among many others across the USA, also eastward (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. Firedrake July 27:
 8400, JBA at 1307, nothing 9-12 MHz
14700, poor at 1311, good at 1416
14980, good at 1418 // 14700
No others found up to 18 MHz

** CUBA [and non]. 11845, July 27 at 0542, DCJC pulse jamming with tones, far from the time it is `needed` against Radio Martí at 13-17. Collateral damage to a weak signal, presumably BBC Russian via Woofferton at 04-06.

6150, RHC Spanish, just barely modulated, July 27 at 1234, while // 6110 and 6150 were sufficiently modulated (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA. 9526-, VOI absent this Tuesday July 27 at 1239 during Japanese hour, still missing during English at 1302, 1341, so no exotic Banjarmasin hookup audible, and after 1400, CRI Russian alone on 9525, no het.

However, also from Cimanggis site, RRI domestic program on 9680 was atop the CCI, July 27 at 1241, just as I tuned in giving (first part pronounced we-we-we) and then a hymn with typically Christian harmony, speech, apparent sermon mentioning Christus Yesus. I assume this is part of official oecumenism, giving the infidels a chance in laissez-être Indonésie (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ###
