Glenn Hauser logs August 23-September 1, 2010

** ANGUILLA [non]. 6090, Caribbean Beacon missing again, Sept 1 at 0618; instead a het, one sounds Brazilian and the other likely Nigerian.

11775, CB still absent from its other frequency, Sept 1 at 1322 and 1400 chex (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ANTARCTICA. 15476, LRA36 reconfirmed on air Monday Aug 23, 1320 carrier weaker than music on 15480.

15476, Aug 24 at 1252, LRA36 carrier detectable.

15476, Sept 1 at 1327 can make out some music, tho weaker than hetted 15480, Poland in Belarussian via Woofferton. 1403 still het between the 4-kHz-aparters (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. Quick check of 25m Aug 24 at 0515 found: 11815 RBC best, 11765 SRDA weaker, 11895 a het probably LBV vs Kashgar? Nothing on 11925v Bandeirantes. Also 12175 something vs CODAR, presumably the 11765 spur at 410 kHz, and also trace of it on 11355 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. Firedrake Aug 23: None found 17-8 MHz from 1322 until: 10500, good at 1325; none others.

Firedrake Aug 24:
 8400, JBA at 1247; nothing on 10500 until:
10500, very poor at 1405

Firedrake Aug 25:
10500, JBA at 1244

Firedrake Aug 30:
8400, JBA at 1319; could not be sure it was FD music

Firedrake Aug 31:
10500, poor at 1225

Firedrake Sept 1:
10500, poor at 1321, gone at 1401
15140, fair at 1328 // 10500, and both also past 1332
No others heard 9-19 MHz.

15520 VP in Chinese with het Sept 1 at 1326, then het goes off; no doubt CNR1 jamming vs V of Tibet 15521v via Tajikistan. At 1351 now hear Chinese with motorboating noise, no het but // 15265 CNR1 jammer against Taiwan, an echo apart from it.

13825, at 1356 Sept 1, CNR1 where I have not heard it before, as R. Martí 13820 was unusually weak. Nothing at all listed at any time on 13825 by Aoki, EiBi or HFCC, so vacuum probably insucked Sound of Hope and the jamming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. Both RHC frequencies 15360 and 15380, Sept 1 at 1327 have CCI, worse on 15380 with Qur`an from HQS Riyadh, but I can`t find anything else listed on 15360 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA. 9526-, VOI, Tue Aug 24 at 1300-1306, just open carrier with hum, 1306 suddenly joining Exotic Indonesia in progress from Banjarmasin, then very good until hit by CRI het at 1357 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

9526-, VOI weak around 1230 Aug 25 in Japanese hour, but at 1301 VG in English, tho slight het audible from 9525, which I don`t hear in OK. But nothing known scheduled on 9525 during this hour.

9526-, VOI English, Monday Aug 30, just open carrier at 1308 and 1328 chex; 1353 recheck now with music; hit with het from CRI at *1357 (Glenn Hauser, NM, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

9526-, VOI, Tuesday Aug 31, at 1331 Banjarmasin guy during another Exotic Indonesia, today including modulation (Glenn Hauser, TX, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 7440, RNZI on wrong frequency instead of usual 11725, Aug 24 at 0511, good YL & YL news interview with labour minister about a tourist killed. No 11675 DRM either, but did not find a wrong DRM frequency. At 0522 recheck, 7440 is gone, so I tune again to 11725, and bang! On it pops at 0523 joining program in progress, and now 11670-11680 DRM is on too. Transmitters/computer control again with a mind of its own, or a deliberate test or something? Anyhow, it certainly disrupted both AM and DRM listeners.

Sept 1 at 0615, 11725 was virtually the OSOB and not much making it on 9 MHz band either (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PORTUGAL [and non]. 21655, Sept 1 at 1331, fair with Portuguese music; OSOB, not even Spain audible on 21610, 21570 or 21540. Unusual, since RDPI is scheduled on 21655 this early only on weekends and this was midweek. By 1355 the only station on band had become Libya on 21695, very poor (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9265, WINB, Aug 25 at 1245, Brother Scare and another speaker, VP with CODAR, gone by 1300 (Glenn Hauser, NM, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9370, WTJC, Sept 1 at 1315 preacher distorted but low modulation, often a symptom of louder spurs but none found, as fundamental was not very strong; by 1404 also had problem from WWRB 9385 splash extending from 9360 to 9410 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 11830 // 11910 WYFR, Sept 1 at 1358 once again filling with Clair de Lune on piano, but no QSY announcement, which we had logged two or three times as totally wrong; instead promo for some FR publication, and on to next show at 1400 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** WESTERN SAHARA [non]. 6297, SASASAM, Sept 1 at 0617 fair with music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6043, approx., carrier causing weak het against KBS 6045 via Sackville, Sept 1 at 0620. Normally KBS is hetless; a Latin American variant? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7270, Aug 25 at 1327, vocal music, and flutter, or is it a fast SAH? Not too much QRhaM, 1328 sounds like Malay, 1330 no timesignal, still talking, then into music; 1338 loses to QRhaM. I would like to think this was Wai FM, MALAYSIA, but PBS Nei Menggu and AIR Chennai in Sinhala are also scheduled (Glenn Hauser, NM, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9885, Sept 1 around 1310 open carrier. Likely VOA Greenville still on after Spanish until 1300; recheck 1342 still/again OC but off at 1343* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ###
