Glenn Hauser logs April 9-10, 2009

** ANTARCTICA. 15476, definite carrier here, not 15475, on portable DX-398 in the yard while noisy computer on inside, but ambient line noise level in neighborhood still makes it tough to pull anything more, 1923 April 9. However, computer off, checked at 2041 on the FRG-7 with longwire, I found the carrier cutting on and off, almost like slow CW. This has happened before with LRA36. Now if they had actually been sending a message by CW instead of AM, it could have been copied (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. DentroCuban Jamming Command pulses against nothing on 9545, that frequency used only a few hours earlier by Radio República, but jamming still going at 0628 April 9 — and QRMing RHC on adjacent 9550, ha ha ha, whose signal was markedly weaker. That gives you a good idea of the priorities in Cuban broadcasting and anti-broadcasting. DentroCuban Commies vs DentroCuban Commies! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH [non]. 6045, KBS World Radio ID in Spanish but pronouncing this name in English, April 9 at 0631 still going with recipe, announcing date of broadcast as April 8, then lecture on the importance of washing your hands. Unfortunately that is still very much needed, if you keep an eye on the other males in the public restroom skipping that final step, so never touch the door handle if it opens inward! 0639 into Hablemos Coreano, LL. This took me by surprise, as I had not noticed on the A-09 schedule that this 0600 transmission via Sackville to Europe, has been doubled to a full hour now. Ahá, they traded that for the English half-hour at 0230 on 9560! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SERBIA [non]. IRS and CRI still colliding on 9580, April 10 at 0120 check, back to about equal levels, unusable for both (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. As I tuned across WWRB, 9385, April 10 at 1311, Brother Scare was saying that he was on “585 and 1251 kHz in China for the next 30 minutes“ — Really? 1311-1341? What an odd timing. Or does he mean 1300-1330? 1330-1400? Or something totally different if this was a recording — he can`t possibly be awake and blathering 24 hours a day. In China? I seriously doubt it; but maybe inTO China. Are these frequencies shown here?

Of course not! And why in the world are the local times in Asia, Europe, Pacific on this page designated as (US) Eastern?? And why is the title of this page “Friday, June 27“? B.S. is seriously challenged in just presenting his own scheduling information correctly, let alone having a direct line from God in the future. Is either frequency mentioned anywhere on this version of his schedule? Of course not!

I am afraid 1251 kHz may be the 600 kW at Ussuriysk near Vladivostok, but there are also 1251 possibilities in Korea South, Taiwan and Philippines. Similar fears about 585 being the 1200 kW at Belogorsk, DV Russia. What are the poor Asians to make of this apocalyptic nonsense emanating from the styx of SC? We pray they may not assume it is typically American, but only affirms that Americans are free to speak total B.S., even unto the whole wide world. Maranatha! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. Ted Randall says he has been getting interference complaints while his shows are on WBCQ 7415, Tue-Wed-Thu 2100-2300. In Puerto Rico, there`s China co-channel until 2200, which is 2000-2200 English via Kashi, 500 kW at 308 degrees for Europe but prolonged trans-Atlantically. And in eastern NAm, YFR 7420 Arabic via Wertachtal, 250 kW at 210 degrees for W Africa. I heard the latter at 2218 check April 9, but not really a problem for WBCQ in CNAm. It may also be bothering WORLD OF RADIO Mondays at 2200 further east. Looking at the schedules, the only other adjacent problem could be 7410, BBC via South Africa, 330 degrees at 2100-2200 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. VOA Korean service, VG signal on 11740, April 10 at 1316 — except the audio was cutting out sporadically. Checked // 5890 and the same was happening 4 seconds later, as it is deliberately delayed. 11740 is Tinang, Philippines, while 5890 is Tinian, NMI. Therefore, the problem is somewhere between Washington and the separate transmitter sites. Is anyone paying attention at either end? Why isn`t there a backup system, switching to a lower-quality but non-interrupted dial-up program feed, for example, the instant that the satellite feed starts to act up? During the next few minutes there was no American Song, but continuous [note spelling] Korean talk over music, at one point interrupted by VOA News announcement in English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ZANZIBAR. RTZ, 11735, April 9 at 2023 check with ME music, poor modulation with rumble, and signal weakening perceptibly in the next minute (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ###
