Glenn Hauser logs May 29-30, 2014

** ANGUILLA. 11775, May 30 at 1330, The Valley station is missing, no PMS or DGS to be heard (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BOLIVIA. 5952.44, May 30 at 0105, Radio Pio XII animated YL talk unseems Spanish, poor but a bit better than usual; always on split frequency, approx. measurement compared to WWV (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL [and non]. 5999.6, May 30 at 0519, RNB is still on here as evidenced by the het upon RHC 6000.0. Not only does it clash with Cuba, but Brazilian DXers have pointed out that there is another ZY already assigned the frequency 6000, 10 kW R. Guaíba, Porto Alegre; but is it active? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 9663.9, May 30 at 0525, Voz Missionária sermonizer giving telefones numbers, stronger than 9819v (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 9819v, May 30 at 0522, Brazuguese on weak signal. Don`t usually hear R. Nove de Julho this time of onight (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. Regarding my channel A2 log of CTV from Ontario, whether there are still two stations or one, Bill Hepburn in Grimsby replies to Saul Chernos` comment that CKCO-2 was apparently off:

``Hi Glenn, CKCO-2 is still on the air. In here 24/7. [later:] Whoa --- I take that back. Watching the end of the CTV National News and waiting for the local news on 2-. I got the Northern Ontario news, not Kitchener's! CHBX is in here at 332 miles. I'm sure I saw a strong CKCO-2 here within the last month. Saul, Did you hear something official about CKCO-2? I haven't heard of any other CTV analogues going off recently. Could they just be temporarily off with transmitter problems? Bill Hepburn`` - I have no way of separating them by offset frequencies now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [and non]. CNR1 jammers morning of May 30:

15525, May 30 at 1427, CNR1 jammer, heavy QRM vs Voice of Tibet but VOT Madagascar goes off by 1428; must not have jumped to 15530 today

15545, May 30 at 1332, CNR1 jammer, fair-good; het on lo side, VOT. At 1428, this has been replaced by 15570

16360, May 30 at 1333, CNR1 jammer, fair-good

16920, May 30 at 1333, CNR1 jammer, good with flutter

17300, May 30 at 1341, CNR1 jammer, fair-good

17575, Friday May 30 at 1305, CNR1 jamming and second Chinese audio, maybe CNR1 offset, hard to tell. Target is BBC Uzbek via OMAN, which Aoki shows from May 14 during this semihour only, and only on Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday; 17510 the other days.

Same 1300-1330 service via Thailand is listed on 17480 for Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, Friday; 17735 other days. However, not noticed anything on 17480 today, but single CNR1 jamming is on 17735 at 1305 even tho it`s Friday.

18980, May 30 at 1341, CNR1 jammer, fair vs. RFA Tibetan via Kuwait, its frequency during this hour on Tuesdays and Fridays (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9550, May 30 at 1335, RHC Spanish making SAH with CRI Vietnamese and atop it but not a bigsig, // 9820. RHC`s own schedule
claims 9550 is on only from 1100 to 1300, and it hasn`t corrected 9830 to 9820 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. Sporadic E MUF is barely poking above 55 MHz, May 30 from 1430 monitoring: weak video on channel 2 fades up at 1549, enough to see the Televisa net-4 `f` bug in the LR; at 1625 once again, and now there may be a Grupo Pacífico oval circle-italic 2 bug in the UR, but just a glimpse before gone again. If so, that would be Sinaloa or Sonora (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1640, May 30 from 0538 past 0541 UT, open carrier/hummy dead air from KZLS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980.02 approx., May 30 at 0108, R. Chaski slightly on the hi side (like half a click on the DX-398 40-Hz steps), vs Cuban pulse jamming, until chopoff at 0112:40.5* which is 11 seconds later than 48 hours ago (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SRI LANKA. 11905, May 30 after 0114, SLBC open carrier has come on, poor signal; music starts at 0114:47, but no mistimesignal audible before opening announcement at 0115:43 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1723 monitoring: confirmed on WTWW-1, 9475, Thursday May 29 from 2100:30. New simulairing on WBCQ inaudible on 7490, but webcast reveals they are again playing last week`s show, 1722.

WOR 1723 also confirmed on WWRB, 5050, UT Friday May 30 from 0327:25, after several seconds pause following preacher. WOR audio sounded rather overmodulated and distorted. Next:

Saturday 0630 & 1430 on Hamburger Lokalradio, 7265-CUSB
Saturday 2330 on WTWW-2, 9930
UT Sunday 0030 on WRMI-14, 9495 (may be previous episode)
UT Sunday 0400 on WTWW-1, 5830
UT Monday 0300 on Area 51 via WBCQ, 5110v-CUSB

** U S A. 12105, May 30 at 0113, passé Pastor Pete Peters preaching here on WTWW-3, while someone else is speaking on 9475, WTWW-1, the main SFAW channel. This seems to be a regular thing now, but apparently 12105 is still considered part of the ``Bible Worldwide`` ministry, somehow related to SFAW. At 1427 May 30, 12105 is still not on, tho 9475 and 9930 are (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12050, May 30 at 1328, WEWN Spanish is gone, and along with that its squealyspurs; still VG on 11550 and English on 15610 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1530, May 30 at 0505 UT, KLBW New Boston TX is back as the dominant daytimer cheating, clear YL ID as ``KLBW The Light and``. KCMN Colorado Springs unheard now, but fast SAH with something. Also recheck at tune-in 0536 UT, another canned ID from KLBW, but this time by an OM as ``KLBW 1530 The Light``. Note: it`s no doubt like this all night, earlier and later; my previous logs at 0605 UT were just typical of my bedtime chex.

Todd Skaine, Woodbury MN, replied to my previous log: ``Glenn, KCMN also cheats a lot. I've also noticed that our semi-local from Shakopee [MN, KQSP 1530] stays on all night, usually with lower power. However this morning, 0510 CLT [1010 UT] they were at full power. Also another local 690 KFXN have been 24/7 at full power [500 watts, all-Hmong?] for a month!`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 88.3, clips of my KAXL Greenacres CA log as in previous report:

UNIDENTIFIED. 960, May 30 at 0501 UT during KGWA Fox-hole, once again, audible amid the QRM is somestation playing instrumental ``Let It Be`` Beatlesong. What is it?!? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9669-SSB, May 30 at 0524, slurred colloquial Spanish 2-way INTRUDERs (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 14000-SSB, May 30 at 1319, colloquial Spanish 2-way, some whistling, vs carrier bursts with descending pitch; presumed poachers rather than legit hams who would not be on phone at the lower edge of the 20m band. Mentioned Isla Santa Isabel, times of moonrise and moonset. There are islands by that name in Galápagos and Guinea Ecuatorial, but presumably this is the Mexican one off Nayarit (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
