Glenn Hauser logs June 4-5, 2009

** ANGUILLA. Caribbean Beacon was missing from 6090 at 0620 June 5, see BRAZIL, but at 1318, daytime frequency 11775 was on the air as usual, and with usual clash of two audio sources: underneath, a screaming YL from the 1610 local service bleedthru, and on top, the calm, measured, seemingly reasonable tones of Pastor Melissa Scott. But she does go on. And on. And on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. Anguilla was missing from 6090 again at 0620 June 5; wish I had checked earlier, but now a mix of two or three weak signals on slightly different offsets, the one barely on top being in Portuguese, and I think I heard a 3:20 timecheck go by, so no doubt it`s the 24-hour R. Bandeirantes, São Paulo (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. June 5 at 1350 tuning across 31m, I could not hear any CBCNQ on 9625, but instead DRM-like noise 9620-9630. Could Sackville have been testing DRM here? That transmitter is normally not needed elsewhere until 1505. Or was it just a local noise peak. I have enquired (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. Firedrake check June 5: generally poor reception from E Asia. At 1311, just barely audible on 8400 and not on 9000; at 1321, fair on 13970 and 14420 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)


Dear Serife Telliel: I notified you some weeks ago since you started using 9830 kHz for English to North America at 2200 UT, that there was severe interference from radioteletype already on that frequency.

Yet nothing has been done about it. I have been keeping track of reports from other listeners in North America and I know that in some areas on some days there is little or no interference. However, most of the time it is severe here in central North America (Oklahoma) making it absolutely impossible to hear your broadcast.

Yesterday I was going to record a sample, but your signal was so weak compared to the RTTY that I could not tell it was there. Today your signal was a little better. I have attached a clip of a little over one minute at 2221 UT June 4. At some point you may be able to recognize the intonations of one of your English-language announcers, underneath the teletype.

For the first part I stayed tuned exactly on 9830, then I rocked slightly up and down to show that it made no difference, as the RTTY is on exactly the same frequency. Then toward the end I switched on the BFO to show what that sounded like altho it made no difference either.

I repeat my previous suggestion that the easiest solution to this problem would be for you to shift up 9835.

I hope you will do something soon so that your transmission on this frequency will not be wasted in this part of the world. Regards, (Glenn Hauser, Enid, Oklahoma, USA, WORLD OF RADIO, to the TRT Chief Engineer, via DXLD) No reply received yet

** U S A. Pastor Pete Peters intoning with weak signal on 9498.7 or so hetting 9500. Must be spur from super-strong WWCR 9980. This can easily overload the receiver, putting his unwelcome voice at many spots on the dial, unless attenuated, but I think this was a transmitted spur, as it behaved like a real signal: still there with two levels of attenuation switched in; FRG-7 preselector properly peaks there; fades in and out, while any fading on 9980 is undetectable; and also audible on the YB-400 where I measured it. Still there at 1354 recheck. Could be a matching spur on the hi side of 9980, but nothing detected on 10461.3 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** WESTERN SAHARA [non]. R. Nacional de la RASD with good signal on 6300 as late as 0625 June 5 with local music and announcements, a pleasant way to end the day here as the day starts there (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ###
