Glenn Hauser logs July 18-19, 2018

** CHINA [and non]. 7575, July 19 at 1306, Chinese vs Chinese, making fast SAH on slightly different frequencies. Seems a channel not occupied before, and EiBi shows nothing; but NDXC/Aoki shows VOA Cantonese via THAILAND this hour only, so now also jammed. Also in HFCC as 54 degrees in Zho. The huge language list at HFCC says Zho merely means Chinese, i.e. which Chinese not specified, while Cantonese in particular is Yue (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 15140, July 18 at 2011, JBA carrier, surely not RHC as scheduled in French, but OMAN which RHC normally obliterates. 11860, however, poorly radiates RHC in Brazuguese to Europe (Carlos will not appreciate that). (Aoki/NDXC totally misses 11860 for RHC!). Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6165, July 19 at 0602, RHC English is S9+10/20 of dead air; 6100 also DA at S9/S9+10; 6060 DA of S9+10/20; only 6000, S9+10/20, succeeds in modulating, but it`s somewhat suptorted. 5040 is off as it is supposed to be after 0600; 5025, R. Rebelde is also dead air at 0605. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6099.239, July 19 at 1239, RHC is way off-frequency again, making big het with presumed CRI in Russian, about equal level on 6100.0. Careful LSB and PBT can get rid of the het. CRI is gone after 1300. 6060 RHC is NOT on, contrary to 11-14 on sked. Something`s always wrong at RHC. 6000 is on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 9885, July 19 at 1311, fair in Korean talk, song, S8-S5. Not in HFCC, but Ivo Ivanov reported:

``TAJIKISTAN. National Unity Radio via Dushanbe, July 12
1200-1500 on  9885 DB  100 kW / 071 deg to NEAs Korean, fair``

NDXC/Aoki agrees. Not in HFCC as of July 6. However, EiBi says this is coming from Paochung, TAIWAN site, which seems more likely for my reception. Which is it? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 9900, July 19 at 1312, S4-S5 JBM, language? HFCC: ``9900 1300 1330 44NE TAI 300 352 0 145 1234567 250318 281018 D  9000 Kor CHN BAB BAB 351`` which is not very informative.
NDXC/Aoki says it`s Nippon no Kaze via Paochung, TAIWAN. EiBi says same via Taiwan-s site, which means 
s-Danshui/Tanshui/Tamsui (Taipei province) 25N11-121E25; rather than:
p-Paochung/Baujong (Yunlin province) PAO/BAJ 23N43-120E18. Which is it? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 15450.046, July 19 at 1320, VOT, VP with music at tail of 1230 English to Europe and also USward but which has never been listenable here this A-season; and characteristically off-frequency+plus from Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1939 monitoring: a double-bust Wednesday July 18 at 2100: 9955 WRMI from *2057:45 not with IS & ID loop, boding ill, but JIP some African music, 2059 another; then Radio Africa Network ID for 21525! (which is now off, heard earlier). Proceeds with a gospel huxter at for at least the rest of the semihour. Wrong feed plugged into 9955 transmitter. WRMI webcast however is running WOR 1939, but it`s out of whack again with very distorted sound. 

WOR simultaneously scheduled Wednesday July 18 at 2100 on 7490v WBCQ, JBA carrier, but checking webcast, it`s a replay of last week`s 1938! I wonder if these happened also last Wednesday when I was out, missed checking either? I must keep constant track of what is really happening with scheduled WOR times. I notify WBCQ boardops and they successfully air new WOR 1939 at 2330 UT Wednesday July 18 on good 9330.075, temporarily cutting away from Brother Scare. Next:
Thu 2330   WBCQ 9930v to WSW [maybe]
Fri 2330   WBCQ 9330v to WSW [maybe]
Sat 0631   HLR 6190-CUSB to WSW

Mon 0130.5 WRMI 5850 to NW, 7780 to NE
Mon 0300v  WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW

Full schedule for WOR on all outlets, not just SW; podcast linx:

** U S A. 5130.267v, July 19 at 0606, WBCQ BS way up here instead of usual offset to the minus side circa 5129.83v. // 9330.152v (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9265, July 18 at 2012, WINB is VP S6-S7 in Spanish. Sked effective July 8 shows weekday sign-on is now *2000, only Wednesdays in Spanish, `A Look at the Book` = not rhyming in Spanish, ``Mirada al Libro``? Another semihour in Spanish ensues at 2100-2130 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 476 kHz, approx., July 19 around 0610, JBA CW marker from a WA4- call --- this is amid the new ``630 meter ham band``, 472-479 kHz. Something about it:

UNIDENTIFIED. 11850, July 19 at 1315, S9-S7 open carrier, dead air. Nothing scheduled now; used to be an RVA frequency for Vietnamese from 1330. Not Cuba, since 11840 source of parasites is not on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
