Glenn Hauser logs June 13-14, 2014

** BOLIVIA [and non]. 3310.0, June 14 at 0118, very poor signal with music, but it`s neither of my talky locals 960 or 1390 which can put a mixing product here, so tentatively R. Mosoj Chaski. However, at 1245 check when of course Bolivia could not make it, now the audio on 3310 matches KGWA 950 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 15195, June 14 at 1300, Firedrake mixed with CNR1 jamming, fair.

15550 & 15585, June 14 at 1305-1306, CNR1 jamming against V. of Tibet via TAJIKISTAN, both fair against hets on their low sides (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9570, June 14 at 1254, bits of music audio cutting on every few seconds, i.e. CRI relay in Cantonese. No such problem with RHC itself on 9550. Wiggle that patchcord! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CYPRUS. 15802-15824, June 14 at 0124-0125* heavy OTH radar pulsing, which would have been bad news for WWCR if it were on now; presumed from here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EGYPT. 9965, June 14 at 0110, R. Cairo is back in whack tonight, no spurs all over the place, just whine marring Arabic modulation on own frequency.

11710v, June 14 at 0128, R. Cairo is back on here from absence last night, again hetting Argentina 11711-.

9315 rather weak; 12070 strong and distorted (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 15630, June 14 a 0124, Greek music, fair, among few signals on band, H.R. still chugging along as if nothing has happened, // stronger 7475 and strongest 9420 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH. 6135, June 14 at 1242, JBA carrier, no doubt new clandestine V. of Freedom, now that frequency is clear, no more than 10 kW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU [and non]. 5980+, June 14 at 0105, R. Chaski very poor but enough signal to detect some talk modulation, until cutoff at 0114:07*, which is 5.5 seconds later than yesterday. Compared offset frequency to 5970+ Itatiaia and found that the ZY is now very slightly higher off its nominal than the OA is (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SRI LANKA. 11905, June 4 at 0114, SLBC carrier is on, poor with flutter, barely making out the start of music at 0114:48, and the 2+1 mistimesignal ending at 0115:18.5. Their offness varies little (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. 17700, June 13 at 2011, R. Africa via WRMI is still here instead of 17790, presumably until QSY to 15190 time at 2100. Tomorrow back on 17790? Yes! At 1401 check June 14. Ivo Ivanov points out that the SMG transmission at 1500-1530 on 17700 is not Vatican Radio but VOA relay in Hausa.

9955, Sat June 14 at 1251, Jeff White talking about Flagler and his overseas railroad down the Keys, so must be `Viva Miami` as scheduled this quarter-hour; still with annoying low audible het from presumed TAIWAN usurping frequency at least during this semi-hour. Jeff also says the show I heard on Sunday at 1230+ with the same problem was not `Wavescan` but another `Viva Miami` (which still doesn`t appear on the schedule grid dated May 31) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, June 14 at 0109, WTWW-2 has again made its night switch from 9930 earlier than WTWW-1, still on 9475, so bodes well for 23 hours later, clearing 9925 for KBC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490v, June 14 at 0132, `Allan Weiner Worldwide`, the only WBCQ program which gets to be trimulcast, also on 9330v-CUSB but a few words off synchronization, and also on 5110v-CUSB, a good many seconds behind in strange feed routing configuration to what must be three transmitters next to each other in Monticello. He`s running way long this week over a sesquihour from 0000 start; addressing Mark Levin, a far-right talkhost, and anticipating needed political changes this November; and mailbag replies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9778.5-USB, June 14 at 0112, Spanish 2-way INTRUDERS, het from algo on 9780 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 17762-USB, June 14 at 0127, 2-way in Luso Portuguese accent, INTRUDERS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
