Glenn Hauser logs July 5-6, 2009

** CHINA. I have kept trolling for Firedrake each morning, but none heard on the usual frequencies 8-19 MHz either July 5 or 6 around 1330. E Asian propagation has been rather poor, and expect they are still running (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [non]. CRI relay via CUBA, 9570, missing July 6 at 1253 check, so missing too were the Chicuban spurs around 9560, 9580. I hope Andy Reid et al. were enjoying R. Australia in this all too temporary respite, as 9570 and company back on by 1339. Some RHC frequencies were absent too; see CUBA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. RHC, 11760, July 6 at 0520 was relaying TeleSur satellite TV audio, with live (or recorded earlier?) report on the chaos at Tegucicalpa airport Toncontín (TNT as the beacon ID we heard sesquidecades ago on x-band went), where Pres. Zelaya`s plane had not been allowed to land. Quite dramatic, with gunshots heard behind the correspondent`s narration, which she identified as “disparos del exército contra el pueblo desarmado“; 0538 ID as TeleSur, http://www.telesurtv.net for more coverage.

RHC check the morning of July 6: several frequencies missing, power failure at one site? Not heard: at 1302, 6000; at 1317, 13680, 13760 [where VOK English was in the clear, Commies vs no Commies], and consequently no spurs on 13580 or 13880.

These were heard from RHC: at 1302, 5965; at 1311, 11760; at 1317, 13780; at 1319, 15360 JBA, much weaker than 15120. At 1324, 11800 echoing vs 11760.

At 1339 power back on with 6000, 13680, 13760 again on the air. See also CHINA [non] for 9570.

As heard plugged earlier at 1311, at 1333 July 6, RHC replaced normal Despertar con Cuba programming with last night`s press conference from El Salvador featuring Constitutional Pres. Zelaya and his other-presidential escorts. Unfortunately, the audio quality was so poor I soon gave up on trying to understand it; apparently from a very low-quality internet feed (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GERMANY [non]. DW, 15410, 310 degrees from Rwanda, July 6 at 1321 with ID in Hausa, DW chord facilitating easy recognition, fair and now clear of abolished CVC Chile co-channel; but weak het from 15412, presumably V. of Tibet and/or ChiCom jammer. Had not been able to hear DW 15410 since CVC quit June 30, due to poor propagation (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA. VOI, 9526-, July 6 at 1254 music with a het, but this time only one and it`s external, not internal: presumably Poland via Germany in English as scheduled on 9525 during the 1200 hour; and it had gone away at 1259 as VOI was about to change from Indonesian to English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** RUSSIA. VOR Chinese, 12000, July 6 at 1324 check, distorted, and unstable carrier, going from music to talk. Wanted to be sure RHC was not back underneath, and could not hear that (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ###
