Glenn Hauser logs September 15, 2009

** CANADA. 6070, CFRX with VG signal at 0523 Sept 15 discussing duct/duck tape (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. Anomaly report Sept 15: 13780 missing at 1351, RHC still there as usual on 13760 and 13680, but the leapfrog on 13880 also absent, of course. 13740 open carrier from CRI relay not yet on either, but was by 1357 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA. VOI, 9524.9, still very undermodulated, but signal a little better on Sept 15 at 1354, M&W conversing and Banjarmasin mentioned at 1356, so yet another reconfirmation of their every-Tuesday excursion. Quite a bit of flutter, 1357 music ruined by CRI`s own prélude and het (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NETHERLANDS ANTILLES [and non]. Surprised to hear some Spanish on 6135, Sept 15 at 0529 outroducing a program; nothing scheduled here, unless it`s Bolivia, but sounds like a major international broadcaster. Weak signal and 0530 into another language mentioning Somalia. Then it dawns on me that this is the leapfrog mixing product from Bonaire matching the one on 6225, the 6195 NHK Spanish service saulting over 6165 RNW in Dutch, both of which go off at 0530. And then on 6135 is BBC Ascension in Hausa (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. It seems that Brother Scare is gone again from WWCR-2, 13845, where he had been appearing a few weeks in the local mornings instead of The so-called University Network. Sept 15 at 1243 there was PMS with VG Es-enhanced signal, MUF between that and still barely audible 15825 transmitter; by 1300, 13845 had also receded to JBA but still PMS // Anguilla 11775; and at 1607 recheck, 13845 with DGS. AFAIK, WWCR never entered The Overcomer Ministry usage of 13845 on their online schedule; maybe he was just filling time waiting for the payment from LA to clear? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 3385, another broadcast frequency marred by TADIL-A beeps and data bursts, Sept 15 at 0540; sounded like two of them mixing so the beeps were irregular. Could not really pin down a single carrier frequency, but somewhere around 3385 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5898.0, big hum and open carrier at 0535 Sept 15. No doubt a Cuban spy numbers transmitter, instead of 5810 on this occasion (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9540-9545-9550 DRM, again Sept 15 at 0517 and still at 0543, strong DRM signal when little else audible on 31m except REE Costa Rica analog 9630. This time with the DX-398 I can center the noise on 9545, rather than 9540 where I thought it was Sept 14 on the FRG-7. Still NO listing for this transmission at DRM DX, and no discussion I can find in their forums. But there is this on the DRM DX schedule:

0700-1000 daily 9545 30 Europe 90 BBC_DW G English Sines Portugal

So are they turning this on two hours early? If anything from Europe could make it, Sines could, but still seems too strong compared to lack of analog signals from Europe. Maybe Bonaire, HCJB, Guiana French or Chile with secret test?

Aha! Then I find these posts in the open archives of the drmna yg:
“Hi Everyone, Echo des Tages – 0510 UT Sept 14 on 9545 kHz – Echo des Tages is putting in a very strong signal here this evening with SNR hovering at 30 dB SNR. The signal is strongest when the loop is pointed toward the SE, so it seems like the transmitter might be in the Caribbean. Audio is 14.56 kbps in German. 73, Mark Bauman, KB7GF, College Place WA“

And a few nights earlier he had the same on 9530, so they have been moving around, and very well may have been centered on 9540 when I heard this previously:

“Hi Everyone, Echo des Tages is very strong 20 dB right now (0520 UT Sept 9) on 9530 KHz. The broadcast is in German at 14.56 kbps EEP AAC+ mono. 73, Mark Phillips“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ###
