Glenn Hauser logs February 12-13, 2013

** CUBA. 11845, Feb 13 at 1410, rather heavy pulse jamming against nothing: only one sesquimonth to go before R. Martí axually resumes an A-season-only frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** DIEGO GARCIA. 12759-USB, Feb 13 at 0102, can barely detect some SSB here, so AFN is again on its day frequency this early, but not enough signal tonight vs noise level. Meanwhile, my second attempt to send reception report direct to station did not bounce immediately, but 24 hours later at 0226 UT Feb 13:

``Sorry, we were unable to deliver your message to the following address.
Mail server for "" unreachable for too long``

Tony Ashar got his QSL from Los Ángeles with site specified, but one should not have to do that, especially when heard with local DG programming. May try the feedback form at MyAFN.

Sudipta Ghose says, ``Hi Glenn! They leave one frequency and go for the other one at their whim. Sometimes the modulation is pathetic (even on USB!!!) However, they are almost regular in Calcutta both on the 12 MHz or in 4 MHz`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GOA [and non]. 11775, Feb 13 at 1411, Anguilla is AWOL, so instead we get to hear two other stations making CCI with flutter, apparently S Asian vs Chinese. Aoki shows AIR Nepali service at 1330-1430, 250 kW, 25 degrees from Panaji, which really shouldn`t need jamming, but it unfortunately follows the AIR Tibetan service at 1215-1330 which certainly does (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, Feb 13 at 0105 tune-in to carrier from R. Chaski, Urubamba, which with BFO is audible despite noise level, and just as expected tonight, it cuts off 5 seconds later than last night, at 0106:00*. From the porch it`s freezing with snow on the ground, so I only stay out for six minutes (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9265, Feb 12 at *2200, WINB has just switched here from 13570 until 2158*, and both wobbly, so another evening without the strange non-wobbly transmitter on 9273v instead. Still 9265 at 0101 Feb 13 check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VATICAN. 7250, Feb 13 at 0630, VR cuts on and off and on, fair signal when on, but inferior to good signals on 6075 and 3975 as mass is starting; and 9645 very poor if at all (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 2660, Feb 13 at 0617 UT, announcement and some music with a beat. Besides XEVT 2910, which is off the air 0600-1058, altho very weak, 2660 is now the most reliable harmonic frequency. Probably still KGLD Tyler TX despite legal night power on 1330 of 77 watts, but I once had a second carrier on 2660, so possibly something else (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
