Glenn Hauser logs June 16, 2014

** CHINA. Firedrake and/or CNR1 jamming morning of June 16:

18980, June 16 at 1237, Firedrake jamming mixed with CNR1 jamming on good signals vs RFA Tibetan via Kuwait, unheard, its Monday & Thursday frequency during this 12-13 hour

18930, June 16 at 1334, CNR1 jamming only, very good signal but with flutter, Monday-only 13-14 channel of RFA Tibetan via Kuwait, unheard

15195 & 15250, June 16 at 1258, CNR1 jammers, poor and clear; and fair with CCI respectively; open carrier already on 15265. After 1300, 15265 jamming with het replaces 15250; and 15115 is added to 15195 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA. 9525.9, June 16 at 1250, very poor carrier on characteristic off-frequency, no doubt VOI, but no modulation detectable. Atsunori Ishida, reports it`s been more than a carrier daily since June 7, going from Japanese to English today at 1303, but ``*1000v-2100v* (Often poor modulation or no modulation)`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN [non]. 9760, June 16 at 0529, music on fair signal, Nikkei? No, 0530 timesignal and Farsi talk, so it`s R. Farda, scheduled here until 0600 via Biblis, GERMANY. No signal from Japan on 9595 either (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. Sporadic E TV DX, June 16: according to tropo map, I am looking for some DTV from the NW, but not even Dodge City on 6; 6m Es map also shows northwest as the direxion for opening, and then checking channel 2 I see signs of Es at 1600 UT, but it`s from the southwest! As often, G7IZU fails to show any such activity, apparently due to lack of interest by Mexican hams for 6 meter DXing.

1600 on 2, CCI peaking SSW, 1602 cooking show, with same-offset CCI from animation; in the QRM I make out TU CANAL in upper right of one of them, i.e. XEPM-TV, 100 kW, Juárez, Chihuahua, more to the SW. 1604 on 2 can make out TU CANAL bug again along with 10:04 AM clock = MDT.

1603 on 2, again in the CCI mess, I can see an ID super in small letters upper right, mentioning XH--- HERMOSILLO, so that`s a definite on XHHMA-TV, 30 kW with Televisa-9 net, which I have assumed on that basis several times before.

These two stations are almost exactly the same bearing from here, with Hermosillo much further. Exact calculations with site coördinates using
Hermosillo:    240 degrees at 1468 km
Ciudad Juárez: 239 degrees at  949 km

1603 on 4, now MUF up to here, string of ads including Colgate (three syllables in Spanish!), OXO, Excedrin; 1606 adstring is still going; 1607 promo for Azteca 13, then program Kids TV(?). 1620 CORTE INFORMATIVOS / AZTECA NOTICIAS = brief headlines, peaking VG, promo Mundial on sibling net Azteca-7; huge adstring resumes: 1627 finally back to program which is Venga Alegría as in LL program bug. Based on Hermosillo on 2, assume this 4 is also there: XHHSS-TV, 100 kW on A-13 net. MUF drops down to 2 and/or Es patch is moving.

1607 on 6, MUF now up to here briefly with soccer; 1614 video CCI from talk show; did not reach audio for either. There is also a 6 in Hermosillo, XEWH-TV, 11.6 kW, with Telemax, i.e. not // any of the national networks. And if the soccer is really Mundial, does it have to be Azteca-7 network? The only one in that area is XHLSI-TV, 50 kW in Mazatlán, Sinaloa.

1615 on 5, brief video from algo, maybe soccer.

1616 on 90.7, Mexican music in briefly, only long enough for partial RDS display as ``90.70 SI TE``. Unusual to add the final zero. I was tuning up from 87.75 and this is the first one I found. XHHLL, La Kaliente, Hermosillo, looks likely. Dreamhost says the WTFDA FM Database is down, and still down a few hours later, where there might be RDS info to identify this; otherwise, any suggestions? No other FM DX heard.

1630 on 2, Venga Alegría show and Azteca 13 bug in UR. PTA means Chihuahua city or Nogales, Sonora most likely. Show title mentioned verbally again at 1653.

1632 on 4, soccer just as a GOOOOOOOAAAAAAALLLLL is scored in the Germany/Portugal game at Salvador da Baía. Also Azteca-7 bug in UR. shows only two 7s-on-4, neither from the previous area viewed, but CY = Colima is closer to it:
Manzanillo, CY       XHNCI-TV 19,860 + H 19-05-14N 104-18-00W XLIC
Matias De Romero, OX XHPSO-TV 40,000 Z H 16-52-48N 095-02-02W XLIC

1645 on 2, MUF down to here with CCI only; 1647 briefly dominating is soccer, but not necessarily Azteca-7 net. At 1656 during game, looks like Televisa-2 star bug in UR; 1658 promo for TELEVISA DEPORTES, so maybe just clips, not play-by-play. Does only Azteca 7 have rights to broadcast full Mundial games in México?

1656 on 3 briefly algo, maybe novela. TV DX out by 1703, nothing more past 2030 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 6090, June 16 at 1303 very weak mixture of my two locals, 960 KGWA and 1390 KCRC; 2 x 960 = 1920, 3 x 1390 = 4170; 1920 plus 4170 = 6090. External mixing or possibly receiver-produced; never hear this at night with any fundamental signal on 6090 such as Anguilla (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TAIWAN [and non]. As I advised Jeff White today June 16: ``Jeff, This morning at 1238 check, CCI from France relay still on 9955, but now the frequency has been adjusted to within a few Hz of WRMI, rather than an audible het. NOT GOOD ENOUGH!

Looking thru Aoki list, there is NO need for them to be on 9955, with all these unused frequencies nearby in the 11-13 UT period: 9940, 9945, 9950, 9965, 9970. Cross checking HFCC, lacking all the Taiwan usage, agrees except has T8WH on 9950 (but probably not active).
Perhaps you can get with the RFI frequency manager if not Taiwan`s`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 960, June 16 at 0501 UT, Mexican NA is audible, and at 0502 `Let It Be`, orchestral Beatles tune, as so often heard during the KGWA Fox-Hole of dead but hummy air. This sequence would almost lead me to believe both musix are coming from XEK, but there is QRM from others. One of these nights I`ll try to hear XEK webstream instead, per Cantú:
confirmed funxional at 1519 UT June 16 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
