Glenn Hauser logs December 11, 2011

** CHINA. Firedrake Dec 11, before 1430:
11500, very poor at 1427; none in the 7s, 8s, 9s, 10s
12230, very good with flutter at 1426
12600, good at 1426
12670, good at 1426
13970, very good at 1428; none up to 19 MHz by 1434

** CUBA. RHC Sunday anomaly observations Dec 11: at 1415, missing from 9850, but still on weak 9540. It would seem that the 9850 transmitter is the one used for nonsensical Sunday-only 13750, except that frequency was also missing at 1428, while usual 13670 and 13780 were on. Another absentee: 15380 at 1431, but JBA under CRI Sackville on 15230 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** FRANCE. 7220, Dec 11 at *0559, RFI on with musical prélude (never any IS), 0600 timesignal, live timecheck for 06 UT, 7 am in Paris, and into English news headlines, as strike has been suspended. But on 7390, French service is playing jazz song in French, IDs as ``RFI Musique`` and in English as ``RFI Music`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA. 9526-, Dec 11 at 1415 can detect VOI carrier still here, not 9525-, very little modulation but seems Indonesian (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MAURITANIA. 7245, Dec 11 at 0620, IGIM is on and chanting; it was not on at last tuneby about 15 minutes earlier. BTW, Neil Kazaross says their MW 783 has been running all-night (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PRIDNESTROVYE. Regarding previous observation that Radio PMR, 7290, was still on the air after 2130 UT Friday, and what local timezone is in effect, Wolfgang Büschel found this:

Transnistria is still on Ukrainian time, switched back 1 hr on Oct 30:
i.e. both of them went back to UT +2, instead of staying on UT+3 as originally planned (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TAIWAN [non]. 6875, Dec 11 at 0608, RTI via WYFR still in German, not Spanish. Has not a single regular listener in Spanish complained to them about this? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1594 monitoring: 5755, UT Sunday Dec 11 at 0500 confirmed on WTWW, but signal is weakening here as winter-night MUF plunges/skip lengthens; occasional `running-water` QRM. Latest Area 51 schedule for this weekend at does not show WOR to be aired this Sunday night, as it was last week at 0333 UT Monday on WBCQ 5110v-CUSB; unless there is another last-minute change.

Remaining WRMI 9955 times: Sunday 1630, 1830, Monday 1230.
Hamburger Lokalradio, Germany, 5980: Tuesday 1030
Sirius/XM 120: Sunday 1830

Full schedule including more webcasts:

On demand:
Podcasts via WRN are also available

** U S A. 12105, Dec 11 after 1400, WTWW-3 is back on in usual AraBible instead of scheduled Russian, having been off the air 14+ hours earlier (Glenn Hasuer, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11765, Dec 11 at 1525, fluttery open carrier. Checking HFCC, only thing scheduled is IBB, 250 kW, 103 degrees from Nauen, Germany to Caucasus at 15-16; followed by REE in Arabic/Spanish from Noblejas at 16-19.

REE apparently wooden, not listed in Aoki or EiBi, but they do have more info than HFCC. The Caucasus service is R. Liberty, daily 1500-1520 in Avar, 1520-1540 in Chechen, 1540-1600 Circassian. Probably was this with lost feed.

Then there`s SRDA Curitiba, Brasil, supposedly 24 hours on 11765; Sound of Hope has a jammed 16-17 broadcast coming up from Taiwan, and the CNR1 jammer, either of which might have had carrier on early (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
