Glenn Hauser logs September 13, 2009

** ANGUILLA. Caribbean Beacon finally back on the air after missing since Sept 5, heard Sept 13 at 0455 on 6090 with PMS; also on 11775 at 1308 with DGS. Some reported 11775 back on as of Sept 12 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. Firedrake Sept 13: at 1255 nothing on 8400, poor on 9000.

9985 at 1306 Sept 13, CNR1 jamming mix with VOA Chinese, via Saipan, same as on 9845, where VOA is via Tinang; 9985 is used by VOA only for this single hour, and consequently the jamming; WWCR 9980 had not built up to super-strength yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. RHC, Sunday Sept 13 at 1453, slow marches by military band, on 15360, 13780, 13760, 11760; is that the end of the scheduled La Cultura en Cuba show? Was looking for Alo, Presidente channels, but none on the air this week: 13750, 13680, 12010, 11690. Back on 13780, at 1457:30, end music without any back-announcement, RHC ID as for “Norte, Centro y Sudamerica, y el area del Mediterraneo“. The latter is iffy, and certainly not at this hour; included clip from Fidel announcing years ago that Cuba now had an international radio voice; and multilingual ID I had not heard before: Spanish, English, Portuguese, Esperanto, Arabic, Quechua/Guarani (or vice versa?), French, Creole. At 1500, 13780 cuts modulation to open carrier, vs Austria-via-Canada starting 13775, but 13780 still on at 1505.

Spanish continued past 1500 on 13760, 11760; I gather some revolutionary hero had died, so that might explain the martial music earlier. 11760 is supposed to be in Esperanto at 1500-1530 Sundays, but that language must be the lowest priority, getting no respect, and easily bumped off. Aside from its novelty, doesn`t matter, as its content is the same old crap as in the other languages, five-heroes obsession, etc. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U K. 13690, at 1559 Sept 13, BBCWS with `V` interval signal, but hiccuping at the first dit, 1600 timesignal and opening Russian via Rampisham, bothered by WYFR on 13695. Which BBC services get the V and which get the B-B-C- note chimes? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Unlike the previous morning, WWV indeed audible on 2500 as late as 1250 Sept 13 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ###
