Glenn Hauser logs December 16, 2010

** COSTA RICA [and non]. 5954.2, R. República extended (all-night?) broadcast continues, Dec 16 at 0634, but the DentroCuban Jamming Command is now aware of it, with pulse jamming. So far, R.R. is still readable (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. DentroCuban Jamming Command with pulsing at same rate, Dec 16 at 0624 on 9955 vs WRMI, 9825 vs Martí [non], and 9490 vs República [non]. Way to go! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also COSTA RICA; USA: WRMI

** INDONESIA. 3325, surprisingly good signal in Indonesian, Dec 16 at 1403, mentioning Kalimantan, apparent news from RRI Palangkaraya. Steady S9+12, rivalling only other station on band, WWRB 3185, which was starting to fade. No North Koreans were audible this time, nor was there anything else on 120, 90, 75 or 60 m except Cuba 5025 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 6185, R. Educación, eclectic music format presents Bob Dylan trax one after another, with brief Spanish announcements, tho I never heard them mention his name! Dec 16 at 0638 past 0701 when playing ``Like a Rolling Stone``, until 0707 ID and live DJ giving slightly incorrect timecheck to the second, 0712 onto next set, cumbias by Wilfrido Vargas. Thankfully, no co-channel QRM tonight (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
