Glenn Hauser logs August 15-16, 2016

** AUSTRALIA. 9580 & 12065 & 12085, Aug 15 at 1357 check, no signals from Radio Australia. 17840 & 15240, Aug 16 at 0329, no signals from RA (tho I may have a birdie around 15240). 9580 & 12065 & 12085, Aug 16 at 1220 still no signals from RA, now the ninth day in a row of silence, without any specific explanation from ABC or promise to return. At least we still have the VL8s, 2310 & 2485 barely audible, and 4835 fair, but no substitute for RA inbooming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7254.924, Aug 16 at 0553, VON is on with S9+20 open carrier; 0555 bit of a song undermodulated, 0557 announcement and dead air; 0558:20 drumming & chanting; 0559 more DA, bits of drumming; 0600 announcement, dead air, sign-on in Hausa (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 13564-CW, Aug 15 at 1355, GNK beacon from Madison WI is JBA, last heard in May. Any HIFER beacons on this band have been very sparse lately (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 4840, Aug 15 at 0539, WWCR is S9+30 of dead air (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505.00, Aug 16 at 0112, WRNO is back on after missing for at least ten days. VG signal and modulation now on the BST-1 caradio, interview later in the hour with a Scotta-Norwegian who laments Christians are hard to find in Norway which is nevertheless a beautiful country. Later at 0327 on the R75, I find gospel rock right on frequency! within a few Hz, and not varying during my brief check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VATICAN [and non]. 6070, Monday August 15 at 0547, VR is back on here, with Gregorian chant atop CFRX during what was the Latin mass broadcast; very poor on 7250 and JBA carrier on 3975. Latest schedule change was for this to be active only on Sundays and Holy Days. I assume this is the latter, Assumption. 24+ hours later, Aug 16 at 0553, VR is off 6070 again, CFRX unscathed (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5050-DSB, Aug 15 at 0533, almost continuous talk in Spanish, very weak, almost like a broadcast but not // 5025 Rebelde (nor 5040 RHC which is in English now). Strange thing is, I hear it on both USB and LSB but no carrier. I suppose it`s a utility 2-way. No LA broadcasters known on 5050 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
