Glenn Hauser logs September 8, 2010

** ANTARCTICA [and non]. 15476, LRA36 check Sept 8 at 1307 audible with talk but very poor, weaker than hetted 15480 Rampisham; 1345, still weak but Ramp stronger with Poland in Belarussian (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. Firedrake Sept 8: none at all found 8-18 MHz between 1255 and 1400 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 6060, RHC English, missing last night, is back Sept 8 at 0557 with music // 6010, 5970.

Checking the DentroCuban Jamming Command vs 9965, Sept 8: 1355 still clear for R. Australia Chinese via Palau, while 9955 WRMI in French had lite pulse jamming. 9965 jamming cut on at *1358:25, typical sesquiminute headstart, rapidly building up to full level roar by 1359 blowing away RA. Past 1400 I still cannot detect anything else there which may be target of jamming.

Apparent spur of this jamming also heard pulsing much more weakly around 9752 at 1402, briefly shifting onto VOA English 9760, then back to 9752 bothering Japan 9750 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CYPRUS. 14840-14865, OTH radar pulsing, presumed from here, Sept 8 at 1342 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA. 9526-, VOI check Sept 8 at 1300, opening English, still with the frequent audio dropouts, and that`s enough for me today (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU [and non]. As Chuck Bolland and Theo Donnelly have pointed out, R. Victoria has been missing from 6019.3 for more than a week, but it`s back Sept 8 at 0553 putting het on CRIEnglish via Sackville during Chinese lesson. CRI off by 0559 clearing frequency for a few words from David Miranda, then station announcement in Spanish, could not hear ID due to RHC 6010 splash but no doubt about it. 0600 VV message from Beethoven`s Fifth. There is still a het from a much weaker signal on 6020.0, but OAX4Q is atop it; nothing likely listed. Maybe Gaúcha, Brasil if running all night.

Anyhow, this annoyance to CRI reception serves the accursèd ChiCom jammers right. And now we again have a chance at the third harmonic of R. Victoria on 18057.9, but still no sign of it around 1350 Sept 8, even when Chile 17680 is inbooming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. The sidebands of WWCR are something else. 9980 with Brother Scare, such as Sept 8 at 1355, accompanied by huge continuous noise down to 9970 and up to 9990 whether BS is modulating at the moment or not (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ###
