Glenn Hauser logs June 8-9, 2009

** ALBANIA. R. Tirana, 13640, only and therefore best signal from Europe on 22m, S9+18, June 8 at 2025 with sports roundup in English, 2027:30 closing, theme, and off by 2028 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ARGENTINA [and non]. 15345, June 8 at 2036, fast SAH from two carriers, no doubt the usual collision between RAE and Morocco; but as both vary up to 1 kHz, remarkable that they should happen to land in SAH range of each other. Could not hang around until 2100 to confirm whether RTM is now closing an hour earlier due to DST which started June 1, thus freeing 15345 for RAE to reach Europe in German until 2200, but would-be listeners there should check it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA. VOI, 9525, June 9 at 1302, W&M conversing about Banjarmasin, as for yet another Tuesday, the VOI English show linx up with RRI Banjarmasin. This has been going on every Tuesday since first noticed in April. He said it was also on FM 95.2 there. 1306 into news from Anita in the Jakarta studio. At 1333 ending Focus, and into more from and about Banjarmasin, Kalimantan; 1338 produced piece with YL. Unfortunately, tho there is still no QRM, the accents, hum, and somewhat undermodulation make it difficult to read (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WRMI, 9955, June 8 at 2037 with KBS World Radio via WRN; very good, no jamming. However, June 9 at 1419, during R. Prague relay, heavy jamming was still running (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. Another sporadic E morning causing WWCR to inboom on 13845 and 15825, June 9 at 1348; 13845, BTW, lacked any crosstalk, and 15825 still had the squeal. So naturally I checked 18770 for the WWRB harmonic 2 x 9385, and there it was fading S6-S9 with someone other than Brother Scare preaching. I could even detect the 18770 carrier on the DX-390 with internal reel-out antenna.

Strangely, there was no axion on 15 or 12m, but CB 27 MHz channels were hopping, and some hams on 10m, such as VE3TMG around 28395 at 1351.

This time Es reached VHF, and at 1426 UT on channel 2 saw WESH news from Daytona Beach FL; at 1436 probably the same NBC station infaded again running a crawl in Spanish with an 800 number, no doubt about their impending closedown of analog channel 2 on June 12. I will really miss this “common“ Es catch I have seen from OK every summer I have been here since 1961, as it banishes itself to DTV channel 11.

There has been a DTV on channel 2 from FL, WTWC in Tallahassee, which some have DXed, but not me; it`s closer than ideal skip distance, and it`s going back to channel 40 permanently (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ###
