Glenn Hauser logs April 1, 2009

** ALBANIA. R. Tirana, English at 2005 UT April 1 on 13640. Good signal, some deep fades, peaking S9+18, discussing joining NATO. Fairly good modulation level for no strain listening even with computer noise. Not audible on // 7465 for Europe (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** AUSTRALIA [and non]. I continue to be amazed by the VL8 stations making it thru on 120m even when not much else is happening trans-Pacifically on 105, 90, 75 or 60 meters. April 1 at 1246, 2485 was peaking at S9+10 as they were talking about the new Israeli PM; much stronger than 2325, barely audible modulation, and 2310 only a carrier. Only signal audible on 90m, with music, was 3385, which would be RENB Rabaul, PNG, at 1249. Today`s sunrise in Enid was 1217 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA [and non]. RCI`s A09 morning frequency is 7325, but April 1 at 1227 roughly equal level of RCI Spanish about Guatemala, and CRI in Japanese, zero-beat so no SAH; same situation at 1335, a bad collision. RCI would be better off back on 7310 as in B-08. Now, RCI is at 1105-1405, and CRI in Japanese 1200-1400 on 59 degree azimuth from Jinhua, which carries on toward NAm (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [and non]. The Eurafricans have cleared out of 7100-7200 pretty well; I hear nothing around 0530-0630, but some Asians are still intruding in the expanded hamband. April 1 at 1336 I had weak music on 7105; at 1413 music, seemingly two stations on 7130; also at 1337 and still at 1409 music, collision on 7185, with fast SAH. At 1410, 7165 some AM talk. 7200 with music at 1337, probably Yakutsk, Russia per Ron Howard (altho Myanmar has just moved from 7185 to 7200, per Alokesh Gupta, but that`s only in their mornings).

Per S. Hasegawa`s bandscan from Japan on March 29, 7105 is Nei Menggu PBS; 7130 is Taiwan vs CNR-1 Mainland jamming after 1400; 7165 is Nei Menggu PBS; 7185 is also Taiwan vs CNR-1. I do not claim definite IDs on any of these, but just observing that some broadcasters are dragging their feet on getting out of the hamband. Possibly hams have not been specifically authorized 7100-7200 yet in the countries concerned (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GERMANY. 17770, in English at 1419 April 1, lively discussion, but it`s just stealth evangelizer CVC on new A-09 frequency via Jülich, to Sudan and vicinity at 14-21 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA [and non]. Checking 9680 again to see if RRI is still clear of the China Radio War: April 1 at 1300 indeed no co-channel, but badly squeezed by 9675 which at 1255 was playing an “Alleluia“ hymn. I see no such station listed; after 1300 it`s CRI in Russian. And from 9685 before 1300 CRI in Russian, at 1300 CRI IS, and into Vietnamese. Perhaps RRI will dominate over the adjacents on a better day. Anyhow, we had VOI in English stronger and clearer on 9525 with elexion news at 1305 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN [non]. Radio Farda, Persian/western pop music, April 1 at 1420 on 17670, better than // 17755, and a reverb = few milliseconds apart; during this hour, 17670 is Wertachtal and 17755 is Biblis, GERMANY (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. Shiokaze on new 6120, Wed April 1 at 1411, W talking, but too little signal and too much noise to be sure of language, accented English, or Japanese/Korean? We can`t expect decent reception of it this far east in summer on 49m (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MALAYSIA. 7270, April 1 at 1338 with Indo/Malay YL DJ talking as much as she was playing music, ranging from country to march to romantic, still at 1409; presumed RTM`s Wai-FM network, via Kuching, Sarawak, as reported almost daily by Ron Howard, CA, but rarely heard here, and still with QRhaM (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LI STENING DIGEST)

** RUSSIA. 12065, April 1 at 1311, VOR as scheduled in A-09, translating something from Russian into English, and then discussing Gogol`s “The Inspector General“; fair with flutter. Could be Chita site (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WYFR, 15770, in stilted but Brazilian Portuguese sermon, April 1 at 1417, music from RDPI Portugal barely audible underneath. The day before, RDPI was on top, but that was before 1400. WYFR is scheduled in Spanish until 1400, Portuguese until 1500, both on 160 degree beam to SAm. So why are they putting S9+20 signal into OK? (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ###
