Glenn Hauser logs September 10-11, 2009

** ANTARCTICA. 15476, LRA36 detectable carrier Sept 10 at 1910, 2036 with a bit of music mixing with Greenville DRM, certainly unexpected, but both signals quite weak. Later found that some other North Americans were getting LRA36 better this date (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA [and non]. 6070, CFRX, Sept 10 at 1218 with local Toyota ad; also fast SAH of about 10 Hz, and no roar from ailing North Korean transmitter which normally runs until 1250 or so. Therefore, I suspect the SAH, also noted previously around 1256, is from that same NK transmitter which has been remedied at least for now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. We are still suffering from local hi noise levels, especially on the trop bands, but signals must be picking up as on Sept 10 between 1229 and 1234 I was getting some audio on 4950, Chinese? should be V. of Pujiang, and 5050, Vietnamese? should be Beibu Bay Radio. Also 4460 CNR1. 5030 CNR1 is audible just about every morning, tho overshadowed by Cuba 5025, so I rarely bother logging it. Plus several Korea North frequencies, q.v.; also CNR1 at 1243 with kids voices including artificially higher-pitched, sped-up, // on 7365, 7305. Per Aoki, both 7365 and 7305 at this hour are genuine broadcasts from Shijiazhuang 724 site and not jammers!

Firedrake, Sept 10 at 1247 on 8400, good with flutter, also 9000. Sept 11 at 1310 poor on 10210 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA. 4750, becoming audible vs the noise level, Sept 10 at 1233, Indonesian, so RRI Makassar, vs the co-channel stations which should go elsewhere than 4750. Also audible Sept 11 at 1245 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [and non]. 5890, VOA Korean, usually in the clear, but Sept 10 at 1225 had roaring jammer and still at 1332; 24+ hours later, in the clear again. Ron Howard theorizes that The Dear Leader doesn`t have enough jammers to go around, so targets vary from day to day. See also CANADA [non], where 6070 is supposed to be an intentional NK broadcast in Japanese rather than jamming.

The KNDF clandestine frequencies from N to S Korea: Sept 10 at 1233 on 4557, this one making the oscillating jamming sound, so that`s from the South? Also CODAR in the mix; at 1235 singing on 4450, flutter, CODAR, no jamming heard. At 1236 on 3480, jamming and het like on 4557.

The 105-meter band was back with 2850 KCBS audible in music at 1239 Sept 10 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. RNW via Tinang, PHILIPPINES, 9650, Sept 10 at 1312 just barely audible under CRI via Sackville, and virtually on same frequency, unlike the day before when RNW was relatively strong and hetting (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3385, Sept 10 at 1237 a bit of Pidgin? talk and music audible, presumed Radio East New Britain, best of the PNG channels here at this still too-late hour shortly after local sunrise (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 11920, RRI with lively pop music show, Friday Sept 11 at 1320-1340, IDs in Romanian for Actualitatsi service. Fair signal tho not aimed usward, 285 degrees from Galbeni. Still miss their defunct morning hour in English, but this will have to do (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 11620, Sept 10 at 1940 with accordion music, announcement in English soon recognized as Justin Coe, ergo REE, weekday hour to Africa (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DGIEST)

** U S A. WINB continues to show disrespect for the Stars & Stripes and the National Anthem: 9265, Sept 10 at 1259 sign-off announcement starts by talking over the Star Spangled Banner (as if their airtime were too precious to separate them), 1300 off. It seems they do not come up on 13570 ASAP as per schedule. That was still inaudible at 1319. Does it start around 1400? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WEWN spurs: Sept 10 at 1403, Spanish on 11550 accompanied by filthy FM rackets on 11540 and 11560. At 1408, 11550 had weakened a bit and suffered itself from the Taiwan off-frequency het (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WBCQ, 7415, JBA here during 1900-1930 UT Thursday Sept 10 first airing of WORLD OF RADIO 1477. Before 1900 I had noticed 9330-CUSB on air with usual financial infomercial, and 9330 was also on at 1933 check with Amos & Andy, which is scheduled on 7415 only. So did much better daytime signal on 9330 too stay on air between 1900 and 1930 with World of Radio? Wish I had thought to check. Try that henceforth in case (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 5970, Sept 10 at 1215, chant-like speech in Asian language causing fast SAH of approx. 15 Hz with REE Costa Rica. 1227 “Know Redeemer Liveth“ hymn theme, Korean, contact addresses for Family Radio. Per Aoki at 12-13 this is YFR via Komsomol`sk-na-Amure, DVR, while REE is direct from Spain, the latter obviously incorrect (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ZANZIBAR. 11735, RTZ, provided some nice Arab music to doze by, Sept 10 from 1950 to 2020 when went back to mostly talk. Lo audible het thruout but Zanzibar atop and not too bothersome. Is Radio Rossii active there, or was the het internally produced? Nothing else listed (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5785-5845, presumed OTH radar clix from China, Sept 10 at 1225. And 4840-4890 at 1232 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. SSB intruders, 11789.9, again being heard on apparently regular morning schedule in tonal Asian language, Sept 10 at 1405, intermittent conversation, last heard around 1428 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ###
