Glenn Hauser logs September 28-29, 2021

** CANADA. 15034-USB, Sept 28 at 1738, Trenton Military is on again but VP S4, Shannon aviation weather (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [non]. 13645, Sept 28 at 1743 hilife music, S5-S8. It`s the CRI Swahili service via MALI (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KASHMIR [non]. 15170, Sept 28 at 1507, tune-in via UTwente to another weekly Tuesday Kashmir Civitas via IRRS via ROMANIA: S9/+15 in presumed Urdu, but 1511 abruptly shift to jive music in English!, more rock, and from 1519 discussion about the Tiananmen Square massacre in Beijing, interview with a Chinese-American author, Terence Cheng, of a novel about it, notably the brave anti-tank protester; with music background until chopped off at 1529* without any RRI IS this time. Was K.C. really only 11 minutes long this week? Or playback failed and default to fill material? IRRS webcast is continuous, much of it with no specific programming but unknown stuff pulled from the web, often fragmented (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. 15720, Sept 29 at 0040, RNZ confirmed on reactivated frequency but not its true span, VP to the ear but peaking S8-S9 to my generous meter (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 11940, Sept 28 at 2155, REE non-English is still somewhat distorted, but loud & clear on // 17855 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SWEDEN [non]. 15260, Sept 28 at 1737, S7-S9, YL talk in language unseems Arabish but listed as Arabic from Radio Sama = IBRA Radio, via Woofferton UK this hour daily (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Sept 28 at 2152, VOT IS & English ID loop, so looks good for today unlike absence yesterday, S9/+25 direct and no RTTY audible in AM --- but detectable in USB, not LSB. Oh2, 2157.6* dumps off the air; but back on by 2159. Did it remain the whole hour? About halfway in, it had become JBA on the portable with clipon (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5896.5-USB, Sept 29 at 0045, some weak unreadable 2-way phone, then mostly beepery until at least 0100. Fortunately there are no broadcasters nearby but surely will be later. Wonder if NTIA coördinate this `OOB` area for US broadcasters giving priority to government/military comms. Last logged May 13, 2020 as MARS net: which concludes with: ``This is a SHARES net frequency as explained with my first log July 27, 2016 at the same time and there have been several since`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 17530, Sept 28 at 1740, VOA discussing need to vaccinate animals, against rabies, S9/+20 --- a reminder that this 1700-1830 sesquihour is the only time we can hear VOA well in English from Grimesland - unless too close in the skip zone.

17530 is extensively used for other VOA languages: French, Somali, Kinyarwanda, Swahili; and sites: Botswana, Vatican violating Separation of Church and State, São Tomé e Príncipe, Ascension. Can you mix and match them without uplooking? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
