Glenn Hauser logs May 29, 2016

** BRAZIL. 11925.236, May 29 at 0553, JBM carrier at S5, no doubt R. Bandeirantes habitually off-frequency+plus. Note it is not spelt: ``Bandierantes`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9935, May 29 at 0548, sounds like Greek Orthodox chanting, and since it`s Sunday morning, appears ERT has resumed this religious service violating Separation of Church and State, but really nice music. This is S7, and // 9420 is only S5, and not on 11645, which is sometimes in use instead of 9935 by this hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA. 9945.0-CW, May 29 at 1200, marker VVV VVV VVV P5O over and over. First thought is North Korea with that callsign; must be something new, as I tune across 9945 every day and haven`t heard this or any CW before. At 1201 goes to dits and then traffic, too fast for me to copy, but seems to entail a lot of numbers, altho not exclusively numbers. Note this V marker does not send a DE before the callsign, unusual. That`s papa-figure five-oscar.

Later I research this on the UDXF yg, and find several logs of P5O, but not yet on this frequency: 18980, 12235/12236, 6365. Logs go back to 2006y and it was soon identified as not NK, but a tactical call instead from 7CB, the Indonesian Navy, Belewan/Belawan. HFCC, EiBi and Aoki all show not a single broadcaster anywhen on 9945, so it all worx out (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15240, Sunday May 29 at 1541, WWRB is not on yet. 1605 recheck it is on, but dead air on strong signal. Off to a great start. Presumably Ugandan clandestine Radio Munansi will air again at 17-19 UT, with something else filling until then, perhaps even modulated (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15720, Sunday May 29 at 1410, S9+10, WHRI is on with Indy 500 stuff, but no race yet; plenty of commercials, retrospectives. 1605 recheck, now some guy is soloing the Star Spangled Banner, so inspiring that the crowd cheers and applauds before he can even finish it, how rude! Capped by the roar of a flyover by navy planes, not ground-based vehicles, off-topic! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ZAMBIA. 9680, May 29 at 1400, JBA carrier after the ChiCom jammers go off, much like yesterday, presumed Voice of Hope, Africa, as scheduled, Sat/Sun 12-17 UT. However, Bill Bingham, South Africa was not hearing it today at 1158-1234, nor at 1426 recheck, presumed off the air. Maybe it was intermittent (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
