Glenn Hauser logs July 16-17, 2014

** CUBA. 6165, July 17 at 2324, RHC Spanish translation of a Brazilian, not // 11670, 11760, 13740 with music; 6165 at 2325 ID as `Mesa Redonda` breakaway program at 23-24 M-F more or less; on schedule as also on 6000 but not noticed there (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 9955, July 16 at 2319, wall-of-noise jamming including pulsing against R. Libertad on WRMI, of which nothing is audible here, but how about Dentro-Cuba? Yet jamming is almost as heavy at 0058 July 17 leaving R. Slovakia International in English barely detectable and unreadable (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. Sporadic-E analog TV DX, July 16, UT:

1742 on 2, weak video signal, animation, new Televisa-5 net bug LR

1942 on 2, next check after a break, algo from southwest, with an 01-800 phone number across the bottom (It`s started raining here; for some reason seldom get Es DX when it`s raining; and continues all afternoon for 2.5 inches; at least no thunder for a while, so I can leave the antennas connected.)

2009 on 2, glimpse of FOX on someone`s hand-held mike. So could it be XHRIO Matamoros, now with Mundo-Fox?

2012 on 2, ad mentions ``el valle``, another clue toward XHRIO in El Valle del Rio Bravo, but hardly certain. `S720` at the top, with an f; 2013 ad for Colegio del Occidente. (Searched later: as the name implies, there are several of these in Sinaloa, Sonora); 2014 program `Barra Deportiva`, and Grupo Pacífico circle 2 bug in upper right, so XHI Ciudad Obregón, Sonora or one of its clones

2028 on 2, CCI is now heavier

2039 on 2, gala swirl bug in LR among CCI, i.e. Televisa-9 net

2040 on 2, now there`s an f bug in LR, i.e. Televisa-4 net

2104 on 4, Azteca-13 bug in UR; at times it vaporizes, resumes

2111 on 4, Azteca-13 is VG now with novela; while 2 with Gala has CCI

2145 on 4, Hermosillo addresses visible in ads; 2147 snow-free

2147 on 2, music show with Tu Canal bug in UR = XEPM Juárez

2213 on 2, movie from Tu Canal

2218 on 2, Gala with promo(?) for Las Noticias por Adentro, so Hermosillo? Mixed with CCI from Tu Canal movie

2219 on 2, Gala TV promo for `Pasillo TV` show at 4 pm

2227 on 2, Gala with less CCI

2232 on 2, video from one, audio from the other

2248 thunder starts and opening fades out by 2300, so about to close down here

2304 on 2, brief resurgence of algo

2338 on 2, TV back on, Gala swirl in LR, poor, nothing more.

Recapping, this setup is getting to be familiar: XEPM Juárez on 2 in same direxion as Hermosillo XHMMA on 2 with Gala; Hermosillo XHHSS on 4 with Azteca 13 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, July 17 at 0059, JBA carrier, much weaker than usual and a strain to hear it, but it does cut off at 0117:18.5*, which is 5 seconds later than yesterday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SRI LANKA. 11905, July 17 at 0115, SLBC with improved signal in musical prélude, mistimesignal right on time ending at 0115:18.5 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** THAILAND. 15590, July 17 at 0107, poor signal in Thai from HSK9`s puny North American service direct, when they could have been inbooming via Greenville; better than the usual zero signal I get. OOFSOB == one of few stations on band (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12105, July 16 at 2316, WTWW-3 still in Yoruba after midnight in Nigeria; only fair signal instead of usual bigsig. On low power or is it propagation? Generally below normal today (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13570, July 17 at 0120, JBA carrier seems with music; certainly not WINB long gone from here; could be 2 x 6785 if a pirate like Old Time Radio be there, but not so heard; or some mixing product; or overload (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
