Glenn Hauser logs July 18-19, 2016

** BRAZIL. 6205, July 19 at 0555, huge extremely distorted blob of talk, later music at S9+20, covers at least 6202-6208 with no central carrier detectable. I suspect it`s RNA, the 6180 transmitter way out of whack again, and soon confirm that by // 11780 modulation pauses and peaks, which itself is sufficient but weaker than usual. 

Then at 0601 I check 6180, and find not only VOA São Tomé in French, but slightly on the hi side as usual, about 6180.01, a second remnant very weak signal also here from RNA barely // 11780! (BTW, don`t you believe a report in the NASWA Flashsheet of July 10 that Portuguese after 0500 on 6180 was MWV Madagascar.)

As I write this after 2130 UT July 19, night has fallen over Brasília, so be on the lookout for the 6205 blob or anywhere else around the 49m band (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1834 monitoring: confirmed Tuesday July 19 at 2130 on WRMI, 15770, barely audible. How is it in Europe, where it is aimed? Next:
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

** U S A. 17775.00, July 19 at 1441, KVOH at good level S9+10, and sufficient modulation in sermon about misericordia a las 5 de la mañana, but with BFO can tell the transmitter is unstable, wobbling slightly and rapidly (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12105-, July 19 at 1903, WTWW-3 is on in Spanish at S9+20; 9930, WTWW-2 is still off. 9475-, WTWW-1, is very strong with planted Pastor Pete Peters denouncing Jews as ``Canaanite cockroaches``, praying to his god to crush them. Extremely distasteful (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15149.878, July 19 at 1449, JBA carrier catches my ear since it`s so far off-frequency. Per Aoki, during this semihour, both R. Tamazuj via VATICAN, and AWR in ``Pwo`` via SRI LANKA are scheduled. HFCC however shows the site for Tamazuj as GERMANY. Whichever, the one far more likely to be off-frequency is Trincomalee, Sri Lanka, now that it`s no longer run by Germans. Pwo is a dialect of Karen spoken in Myanmar and Thailand, per EiBi (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
