Glenn Hauser logs August 14-15, 2009

** BIAFRA [non]. Quick check reconfirms V. of Biafra International still on 15665 via WHRI, Friday August 14 at 1927, in English mentioning Ibos. WRTH predicts that 17520 will resume for this in September, Fridays at 1900-2000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. R. Brasil Central always fun to hear when the MUF attains 12 MHz in the middle of the night, such as Aug 14 at 0525, live Brazilian-accented announcer with time check has to be this on 11815; deep fades. Too much noise on 60 m to hear // 4985; also a weaker signal on 11925, presumably Bandeirantes, another 24h, 25m Brazilian broadcaster (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. RNZI missing from AM frequency 11725, Aug 14 at 0519, and still past 0530, while usual strong DRM signal on 11670-11675-11680 remained, so the AM transmitter was down or stuck on some other channel (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SERBIA [non]. International Radio Serbia is missing from 9675 after 0100, when it is supposedly on the air 7 days a week with the 0100-0130 “English-2“ broadcast to NAm, per
while the “English 1“ at 0030 is daily except UT Sundays when there is a longer Serbian broadcast instead.

Checked UT Friday Aug 14 at 0114, nothing on 9675, but propagation OK as VOR via Pridnestrovye was well heard on 9665.

UT Saturday August 15 tuned in earlier at 0035 and found IRS in English; 0047 jazzy Balkan music; 0057 sign-off just as “Radio Serbia“ mentioning 6100 to Europe, 9675 to North America, but not the times. IS and off by 0058:30*, and still not back on at 0110 check. They used to make an antenna change from 310 to 325 degrees, so it probably went off briefly before 0100. Now the schedule shows 310 for both transmissions (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WWCR 50-meter transmissions were breaking thru on 25m, Aug 14 at 0512 on 11780, Pastor Pete Peters // 5890 (no Brasil on this date), and 11870, Pastor Melissa Scott // 5935, mixing with WEWN which was weaker than usual. However, the WWCR fundamentals were extremely strong, so it`s difficult to be 100% certain whether the harmonix were receiver- or transmitter-produced. However2, other harmonix and mixing products from WWCR certainly have existed (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ###
