Glenn Hauser logs June 8, 2009

** ASCENSION. BBC Hausa, 21630 at 1355 June 8 // 17780, with an echo between them making me suspect they were different sites, but listed as both Ascension, 65 and 55 degrees respectively. Deliberately offset modulation to even out power like at Tinian, or markedly different propagation paths?

Nothing on 21470, the BBCWS English frequency which used to be the most reliable 13m signal in our mornings. That`s because VTC has shifted sites for it, no longer Ascension at all: 08-14 Seychelles at 240 degrees, 14-17 Cyprus at 175 degrees; so we can forget about it in North America (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. Firedrake June 8: at 1250 on 9000, only fair; but at 1345, it was very good on 13970, steady S9+20, while on 14420 it was deeply fading S6 to peaks of S9+10. Not heard on any of the other usual channels.

CNR1 programming also heard very well on 13830, June 8 at 1344 // 11805 and 9845. 13830 is to block RFA Tibetan at 11-14 via Tajikistan, but no trace of it here underneath, and one might not guess CNR1 is just a jammer. 11805 is to block VOA Chinese via Thailand, which I could not hear at all, just a lite echo on the CNR1 audio. On 9845 there was as usual more of a mix with VOA Chinese via Tinang (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. The DentroCuban Jamming Command was all over the place on 31 meters, apparently spurs on frequencies where not normally heard; at least, we hope they are spurs rather than tipoffs to new deliberately jammed frequencies at other dayparts. June 8 at 1253, pulses on 9545, which is a R. República frequency in the evenings only. Also on 9625 at 1255 bothering CBCNQ. At 1258 also on 9780 vs KNLS, Taiwan and ChiCom jamming. More Cuban jamming pulses on 9815 and 9825, but those two at different pitches and rates. 9965 more jamming pulses vs something in Vietnamese — that must have been YFR via Taiwan on 9960. Meanwhile there was heavy jamming on the usual targets, Martí on 9805 and WRMI on 9955. Perhaps the unexpected pulsing frequencies were spurs from these.

The CRI relay on 9570 was also putting out its nasty spurs on 9560 and 9580 against Radio Australia, at 1254 check, tho 9580 still listenable

** ETHIOPIA. 9561 and 9704 carriers producing audible hets against 9560 and 9705, June 8 at 1253, no doubt the Addis Ababa twins (Glenn Hasuer, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOLOMON ISLANDS. No het on 9540 and no carrier detectable on 9541.5 June 8 at 1253, so I think SIBC was off; noticed when checking the Cuban overjamming on 9545 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ###
