Glenn Hauser logs December 29-30, 2010

** AUSTRALIA. 7240, Thu Dec 30 at 1405, RA starting ``Summer`` show from ABC Local Radio (paradoxically, a national network). RA is in summer-vacation substitute-program mode, but has failed to update:
which still shows ``Hindsight`` Thursday at 1405. This situation will probably last thru most of January. ``Summer`` host started discussing whether brains of liberals and conservatives are congenitally different, i.e. conservatives ruled by reptilian emotions (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11760, Dec 30 at 1531:40, RHC starting ``Formalmente Informal``, confirmed as one hour later than it used to be M-F (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA. 9525-, VOI still almost on-frequency rather than 9526-, Dec 30 at 1413, ending news in Indonesian. Good signal today but with some whine, and as always, IADs, more obvious when some music played. Off the air after 1500 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. More from the sporadic E TV DX opening in previous report: channel 3 analog, Dec 29 at 1725 UT, ``Ensalada de Noche`` label at bottom, cooking demonstration, and tv3 bug in upper right, i.e. XHP Puebla (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PALAU. 9950, Dec 30 at 1458, Babcock IS, prior to what? Nothing: at 1459 ID by T8WH, cut off air before complete. This was instead the tail of the 1430 Furusato no Kaze broadcast, 100 kW, 345 degrees (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** RUSSIA. 6075, R. Rossii, Petropavlovsk/Kamchatsky, Dec 30 at 1359, nothing but motorboating, but 1400 timesignal made it thru, mb carrier on until 1401, and no 8GAL audible on 6074 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SRI LANKA [non]. 11905, R. Ceylon is being reported in English at 1530 so I try for it too. At 1518 Dec 30, something in Russian? No, Belarussian from Poland via Woofferton UK, say HFCC and Aoki.

1529:30 this stops, and a few sex later another carrier comes on somewhat weaker and fadier. I am afraid this is not SLBC, but another PRES broadcast via Woofferton in Ukrainian, having made a slight antenna change from 70 to 82 degrees.

HFCC shows SLBC via Ekala site at 0800-1530 on 11905 in Hindi, but this is not in WRTH 2011; just 1530-1630 in English and Hindi on 11905 via Trincomalee (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** THAILAND. 9725, Dec 30 at 1417, HSK9 in English discussing the dangers of second-hand smoke; fair (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7415, Wed Dec 29 at 2001, WORLD OF RADIO 1545 confirmed first airing on WBCQ webcast.

9955, WRMI, UT Thu Dec 30 at 0443 check, nothing but jamming audible when WORLD OF RADIO 1545 was airing. Tnx a lot, Arnie! However, at 0621, WRMI was holding its own against the jamming during DX Partyline. Pipeline then from SFL with WYFR 31m channels inbooming. Other nights these are JBA; you never know which will be the case.

Dec 30 at 1628 check, the Thu 1600 airing of WOR on 9955 seems unjammed but poor signal. Next on WRMI: Thu 2200 (probably jamming wall-of-noise as this was on Wed); Fri 1530, Sat 0900, 1500, 1830. On WBCQ 7415: Thu 2000; on WWRB 3185: Fri 0430. On WWCR 7465: Fri 2130; 12160 Sat 1700. Complete schedule at (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ###
