Glenn Hauser logs February 20-21, 2017

Correxions: The WBCQ frequency in both these items was not 9330.92v but 9329.92v-CUSB, fixed:

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 9329.92v-CUSB, Feb 20 at 1525, Brother Scare is VP at S2-S4 via WBCQ, varying audibly with BFO. Contrary to Ivo`s guess that this was not on in our mornings. Supposedly it`s 24 hours, filling all time not already committed to other programming (and subject to preëmption for special bookings). Much weaker than e.g. 9315 Tinian: see TIBET [non]. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TIBET [non]. 9315, Feb 20 at 1525, English clip about high blood pressure, then back to Tibetan, for it`s RFA via TINIAN this hour only (earlier via Tajikistan). Strangely, HFCC as of Feb 16 still does not show any broadcasts on 9315, while Aoki says 9315 for this started November 11! Maybe that`s why no ChiCom jamming is to be heard? Noted as much stronger signal than 9329.92v-CUSB, Brother HyStairical via WBCQ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ALASKA. The first HAARP test for 0300-0340 UT Feb 20 was a bust here, as a lightning storm was hitting us, so antennas and computers disconnected. Another one was scheduled 24 hours later, Feb 21, on ``2.8 and 3.3 MHz``. Closest I could come were two S7 carriers drifting slowly downward from 3295 and 2810 as of 0305, reaching 3262 and 2787 by 0340 or so --- but this is not what HAARP was supposed to be doing, a repeating 10-minute program including music; so I conclude these must have been generated within the NRD-545. I often encounter birdies on the lower SW frequencies, but ignore them as soon as I hear the drift. Kept checking closer to 3300 and 2800 but nothing heard during this span. Reports of what others were getting:
More to come UT Feb 22 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DXL ISTENING DIGEST)

** ALGERIA [non]. 9710.00, Feb 20 at 2129, Qur`an at S3-S4. It`s RTA via FRANCE, also during the previous hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9420, Feb 20 at 2127 tuneby, surprised to hear English from VOG, but I know it can`t last. A guy with Scottish(?) accent is talking about the Greek people, interviewed by a woman also in English. I have the impression he may be a second-generation emigrant. 2128 she switches to Greek presumably explaining what they were talking about rather than a verbatim translation. Do not to expect the English segment to recur at this time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 11868.40 & 11351.60, Feb 20 at 2120, approx. centers of distorted S2 spurblobs, enough modulation on the upper one to match it to the Chinese from MWV 11610 tuned on aux receiver G8, while 11610 is S9-S7 on the JRC. Plus and minus 258.4 kHz: so what is significance of that figure?? Too bad that their newish Continental would be emitting these parasites. Fortunately, nothing is scheduled on 11865 or 11870 at this time, but 11351 is an aero mobile service channel. Now to look for more at similar displacements from all other MWV frequencies, but for only 57 minutes each (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 15529.97, Feb 20 at 2113, an S4 signal where there should not be one, so my ears perk up for another Station YHWH appearance, since I had previously heard him this time of day on the 19mb (15300) --- fades up a bit to S8, and yes, it`s Martin K. Elliott with his usual shtick, ``breaking the spell of Satan --- Christianity, greatest hoax ever``, Still going at 2141 check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOMALILAND. 7120-AM, Feb 21 at 0333, Qur`an at S8-S9, better signal and modulation than usual but intermittent co-channel but LSB QRhaM upon Radio Hargeisa (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490.131-AM, Mon Feb 20 at 2140, WBCQ with continuous disco/rock music, no announcements until 2159 ID and 2200 into the `Remnant Ministry` pushing Yahwahism, sponsored by gold-pushers Financial Survival, which is the show itself missing from previous hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** U S A. 6855, Feb 21 at 0030, WRMI is dead air again like 24 hours earlier when Xmas Radio was not to be heard. Nor is anything else to be heard now, including previously carried Slovakia in English. BUT --- I can hear light pulse jamming on 6855, first time for that. Did Jeff put some Cuban exile program on 6855 sometime? Not that I am aware of. 

Now, 9955 is buried in a wall-of-noise, vs Radio Libertad, unlike 24 hours earlier on Sunday until 0030 with `Trova Libre`. I`ve notified Jeff White about the dead air and the new jamming threat (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12105, Feb 20 at 2118, WTWW-3 is AWOL, no Bibling now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
