Glenn Hauser logs November 26-27, 2017

** AUSTRALIA. 11865, Nov 27 at 1350, S9+10 song by hyper-soprano, really lovely, brief S Asian announcement and more. 1358 mentions India, few seconds of song in English, 1359 Reach Beyond Australia sign-off by YL until 1330 tomorrow. Aoki/NDXC shows this segment was in Tamil. If the Tamil songs had any Christian content, they were beyond my comprehension, so my rationality remains unchallenged (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BIAFRA [non]. 11530, Nov 27 at 0520 & 0535 chex, R. Biafra via WRMI a JBA carrier, above the MUF tonight, while 9955 was quite strong a bit earlier. The WRMI skedgrids still do not identify this hour, nor 19-20 as purveying Radio Biafra toward S America (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6165, Nov 27 at 0329, RHC English is S9+20 but just barely modulated; // 6000 is better, merely very undermodulated. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

11830 & 11840 & 11850, Nov 27 at 1400, RHC with QSY announcement: going off now are 13670 and 11650; continuing until 16 are 17730, 15230, 15370, 11760 and 9535 --- omitting the very frequencies I am listening to! Which stay on with news. At 1412 check, I find 17580 on but NOT 17730; 11650 and unmentioned 11840 and 11950 are still on too. By 1510 rerecheck, 17730 has finally replaced 17580. Something`s always wrong at RHC. There is a severe disconnect between what they say in the studio and what they do at the transmitters. 

[non] BTW, 13670 audible with something else at 1424, S3 music, i.e. CRI French via Albania; CRI also on 13670 at 13-14 in English via Kashi-Saibagh 2022, East Turkistan, per NDXC/Aoki, Commies vs Commies! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6876-AM, Nov 26 at 2253, algo JBA, rather than anypirate in the 6.9`s. Many logs here say it was The Crystal Ship relayed:,38930.0.html

** TURKEY [and non]. 11815, Nov 27 at 1405, about equal mix of Japanese talk from NHK, and Turkish music, talk from TRT, combining for a medium SAH which is heard only in AM, not SSB mode. The collision lasts from 14 to 15, with VOT aiming USward at 310 degrees, NHK, 235 degrees from Yamata; but Turkey does not expect to be heard beyond Europe (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1905 monitoring: Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria reports: ``GERMANY, Reception of World of Radio on 9485-CUSB via HLR, Nov 26
1131-1200 9485 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg to CeEu English Sun, weak/fair``

Not confirmed UT Monday November 27 at 0030 on WBCQ 9330, but a trace? of algo; meanwhile neighbors 9370 and 9395 are good, but 9265 WINB VP. 

Confirmed, UT Monday Nov 27 from 0400 sharp on Area 51 webcast. Presumably also on WBCQ, which at 0325 was measured on 5129.831, poor. Also confirmed UT Mon Nov 27 at 0430 on WRMI webcast, and at 0458 check, 9955 at S9+20. Next:
Tue 0030   WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030   WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030   WRMI 11580 to NE, 9455 to WNW, 7780 to NE [or #1906?]

Full WOR schedule via all media, and podcast access:

** U S A. 7730, Nov 27 at 0622, WRMI VG with ME World Music fill, in the absence of RAE Japanese on this Monday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12065, Nov 27 at 1345 check, no signal from WEWN English, nor on 15610 scheduled from 1500. This service is increasingly erratic, despite at least 3 transmitters available, while Spanish continues on 5970. One hopes English is off because they know the transmitter if on would be causing splatter/spurs as it has done in the past (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4070.5-USB, Nov 27 at 1328, Russian intermittently mentioning a lot of numbers, repetitions, perhaps weather info broadcast; maybe a 2-way contact at 1330, but other side unheard (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

UNIDENTIFIED. 9825, Nov 27 at 0620, open carrier at S7-S3, third SSOB after 9395 & 9455 WRMIs. Something warming up for *0630? No, off at 0629 recheck. VOA uses this frequency at various other times, but nothing scheduled around now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15151.65-USB, Nov 27 at 1410, 2-way INTURDERS in Spanish; stronger reply closer to 15151.50-USB. A regular area for these, logged several times before (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
