Glenn Hauser logs August 26-27, 2009

** CHINA. Unlike the day before, not a single Firedrake was heard in 8-19 MHz bandscanning Aug 26 between 1400 and 1500. Nothing much else from Asia above 12 MHz, but some signals below.

Only Firedrakes audible Aug 27 at 1340-1343, 9000 and 10210, both poor (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. Seldom heard leapfrog from RHC on 9540, Aug 26 at 1155, // 9600 with YL reporter outro in Spanish; the fulcrum is 9570, already on with open carrier prior to CRI relay. I vaguely recall Venezuela once used 9540 non-spuriously, so not to be confused with that, or taken as an activation of their own new SW site, which should be imminent (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** RUSSIA [and non]. 15510 caught my ear Aug 27 at 1355 as audio in SW Asian language was breaking up, later OK. At 1359, VOR IS, and at 1400 morphed into Deutsche Welle opening in Russian, with a few words of overlap. Per Aoki until 1400 it`s VOR Pashto/Dari via `Krasnodar`, and from 1400, 15510 is DW via Rampisham. I could not tell when one transmitter came on and the other went off, and could have guessed they were both via same, as levels did not change either, but both were only poor (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Jeff White tells me that the Cheetah Radio infomercial folx bought the 05-07 UT Wed and Fri blox on WRMI, now using the NW antenna, accounting for the disappearance of WORLD OF RADIO UT Wed Aug 26 at 0500. Jeff says that airing of WOR has been rescheduled to 0700 UT Wednesdays. Also bumped are two runs of Frecuencia al Día, UT Wed 0530 and Fri 0500, but I don`t know if they have been replaced (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Is IBB Greenville DRM test still running? Aug 26 I check at 2052 UT on the DX-398 in the yard away from computer noise: at first nothing audible on 15475, but kept stepping 15470-15475-15480 back and forth, and soon the DRM noise fades in enough to detect it centered on 15475. And in LSB mode it shows on 15470-15475, USB mode 15475-15480 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 17500, Aug 27 at 1403, W&M conversing in unID tonal language, seemingly Mandarin-influenced; poor signal fading in and out, but still going at 1431. Little if any music ever heard. Never heard anything here before in almost daily bandscans. It`s a new frequency since Aug 25 for VOA Tibetan via Lampertheim, GERMANY at 14-15, 77 degrees. And no jamming (audible, yet)! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6130-6135, big roaring sound Aug 26 at 1208, interrupted at irregular intervals by three beeps. At first I was taking it for V rather than S, but the final dash morphs into a resumption of the roar. Not a chance of hearing Laos while this is going on! Is it jamming? No likely targets listed in Aoki or Eibi; Tibet is also on 6130. Utility intruder? Similar to the `bonker` around 11740 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ###
