Glenn Hauser logs June 12-13, 2016

** AUSTRALIA. 12362-USB, June 13 at 1336, marine weather, very poor, from VMW Wiluna WA, and equally poor from sibling station 12365, VMC Charleville QL (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 6040.795, June 13 at 0556, very poor carrier no doubt from Rádio RB2, ex-6040.4, offer frequency than before. Aoki shows a few precise splits, not including this one, just ``6040`` which it never attains (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EQUATORIAL GUINEA. 5005, June 13 at 0446, JBA carrier implying that Bata is already on this early today (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 11600, June 13 at 0433, very poor S5-S8 with flutter, talk in presumed Kurdish; Denge Kurdistanye via FRANCE scheduled. Aoki shows CNR1 jamming vs Sound of Hope could also be on 11600 at this time. At 0602 recheck, 11600 has degraded to JBA carrier. It`s been ages since I have had a decent signal at any hour from any site for D.K.`s music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 17855, June 12 at 1827, REE still AWOL from its North American service, while audible weakly on 17715 to elsewhere, and better on // 15500 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SUDAN [and non]. 11648.0, 11648.78, 11650.95, 11651.25, 11652.65, June 13 at 0436, bunch of carriers and/or tone modulation peaks to jam R. Dabanga, which has moved safely away to 11645 via Vatican. Previously had nailed one to 11651.25 when Dabanga was still on 11650.0. At 0602 recheck they are all off (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UGANDA [non]. 15240, Sunday June 12 at 1825 check, WWRB is still airing Radio Munansi, very strong signal but with artifacts from lo-fi webfeed out to plus/minus 8 kHz; vernacular, presumed Luganda, and no long pauses this time. Sked has been 17-19 UT Sat & Sun only. They never answered my inquiry on their webform when first identified (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** U S A [non]. 11695, June 13 at 1329, Yankee Doodle Dandy and ``Voice of America, Washington DC, signing-on``; 1330 introducing VOA in Khmer (pronounced ``K`migh`` or ``K-my``). This had been via Sri Lanka until Iranawila relay was terminated a week ago. Now it`s via Tinang, PHILIPPINES, as compiled here:

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1829 monitoring: confirmed Sunday June 12 at 2330 on WBCQ 9329.932-CUSB, fair. Also confirmed UT Monday June 13 at 0030 on WRMI 7730.003, S9+30 very good. 

Next airing UT Monday 0300 on Area 51 via WBCQ 5129.918, turns out to be last week`s #1828 (which wasn`t on SW last week, transmitter off), but no 1829 this week now or later, with HRI as usual at 0329. WOR 1829 confirmed UT Mon June 13 at 0330 on WRMI 9955, poor S8. Next:
Mon 2330   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 1100   WRMI 9955 to SSE
Tue 2130   WRMI 15770 to NE
Tue 2330   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Wed 1315.5 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 2100   WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Wed 2330   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW

UNIDENTIFIED. 11605, June 13 at 0602, S3-S9 ABBA, more songs, still 0621 until off abruptly at 0638*. No announcements heard tho I dozed off during. Nothing listed ever in HFCC; in Aoki & EiBi we have nothing but two other hours of RTI and ChiCom jamming. Who is testing, BaBcoCk? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
