Glenn Hauser logs December 25, 2016

** CHINA. 7415, Dec 25 at 1523, Firedragon jamming at S6-S9. Long time since I have caught one instead of CNR1 jamming, and if you have to jam, this is the most entertaining way to do it. Aoki shows target is RFA Chinese via Tinian at 15-21 (plus another hour via Kuwait).

7300, Dec 25 at 1524, Chinese at S9+10: this must be CNR-1 jamming, as RTI in Chinese is scheduled Sat & Sun 15-17 per Aoki. In both cases only one station is audible (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 17730, Dec 25 at 1452, RHC Spanish carrier is breaking up, as are to a lesser extent, 17750 and 17580. Still so on 17580 until 1459* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EGYPT. 9515.127v, Dec 25 at 1506, open carrier with hum, maybe just barely modulated. Keeps varying upward, then down a bit as I try to measure it. This reading is as of 1508. Scheduled on 9530 is R. Cairo Albanian service at 15-16, 200 kW, 325 degrees from Abis and also USward. Ivo Ivanov was also hearing dead air split on 9515.3 at 1103 Dec 18, assumed same source (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. Altho the premise of the title is debatable, one of few gems on OK commercial TV is a feature series of short reports, `Is This A Great State, Or What?`. Galen Culver has been producing three of these a week for 25 years now, some 3000 stories (that would really multiply out to 3900), celebrated Dec 25 at 1730 UT on KFOR with a half-hour special of clips. I haven`t found a link to that, but start here for individual ITAGSOW stories:

** SPAIN. 15390, Dec 25 at 1456, REE IS lead-in to 1500- broadcast is S9 but distorted, while 1550 is OK at S7-S9. Cleared up later (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UGANDA [non]. 15240, Sun Dec 25 at 1900, weak African music from presumed R. Munansi via WWRB, still at 2002 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 2520, Dec 25 at 1250 UT, the S6 carrier now has some music modulation audible, 1301 announcement by YL, but vs S9+10 storm static crashes approaching from western OK/TX. Presumed WOCO, 2 x 1260, Oconto WI as per other definite logs, such as Dave Valko, PA, Dec 23 at 1205-1256. (Art Delibert in Maryland says Washington DC talk station WWRC 1260 also harmonicizes around there on 2520.) My standard remark about DXing MW harmonix: unless it cause harmful interference, do not report to the station about it, let alone seek QSL, as that may encourage them to suppress it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
