Glenn Hauser logs August 27-28, 2017

** CHINA [and non]. 9900, Aug 27 at 2355, JBA signal. Aoki shows only RTI at end of bihour of jammed Chinese, so probably CNR1. For a moment I envisioned R. Cairo which used to be amid its sesquihour in English to North America on 9900, now defunct. 

9800, Aug 27 at 2355, very poor music not accounted for in Aoki, unless Cairo forgot to turn off English at 2245 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6060, Aug 28 at 0006, S9+40 of dead air. RHC will get around to modulating it when they`re good and ready (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 12090, Aug 27 at 2351, very poor music at S1 from RHC, yet another leapfrog mixing product, this time 11670 Spanish over 11880 English, another 210 kHz beyond, both of which are very strong. Since it`s Sunday, alternate Mesa Redonda service 11950 is off, so no spurs this hour involving it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** HAWAII. 21280.50-USB, Aug 27 at 2341, KH7XS, Bill in Hilo, with quick contest contacts, mostly east coast stations. 5&9. Nice to hear an S7 signal on 14m --- *any* signal on 14m.

21282.70, Aug 27 at 2343, nuzzled up next to the only other Hawaiian on band, KH6LC, CQ Hawaiian QSO Party. Seems object is to work as many other states/stations ASAP. This weaker one has less luck. Per, LLOYD J CABRAL, KEAAU, HI 96749-9206, who is also near Hilo.

21300-USB, in fact is the only other signal on 14m, but heavy accent and echoey shack keep me from copying him; or could be Latin American? 

Just in case, I also check 10 & 12 m, but closed. 17 m has a couple signals unID, one CW slow code practice and one SSB, California? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925-AM, Aug 27 at 2338, JBA carrier vs S9 storm crashes, not there at 0005 Aug 28 recheck. Many other logs of it, all as unID pirate, all afternoon from as early as 1713 UT, by those who could it hear it much better:,36937.0.html

** ROMANIA. 13730, Aug 27 at 2350, JBA music, one of very few signals on band beyond Cuba, NZ and WWCR. Aoki shows RRI in Spanish.

9790, Aug 27 at 2357, YL with ballad in English, S6-S2, ends at 2400 sharp, into RRI opening in Romanian; much weaker than 9730 in English. So 9790 turned on the 2-hour broadcast a few minutes early without playing IS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1892 monitoring: confirmed Sunday August 27 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9330.075v-CUSB, good. Also confirmed UT Monday August 28 starting at 0302 on Area 51 webcast, but WBCQ inaudible circa 5130 (earlier at 0007 I had measured a weak carrier on new frequency of 5130.10-AM, ex-5129.84v). Also confirmed UT Monday August 28 at 0330 on WRMI webcast, but JBA carrier on 9955. Next:
Mon 2330   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030   WRMI 7730 to WNW

** VIETNAM. 9839.78, Aug 27 at 2356 JBA music, one of the perpetually off-frequencies of VOV, end of English broadcast (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
