Glenn Hauser logs September 19, 2009

** CANADA. Yet another Sackville leapfrog to add to the stable: 6045, Sept 19 at 0522 in Vietnamese, the 6175 VOV relay transmitter saulting over the 6110 transmitter carrying NHK at 0500-0530 only, another 65 kHz downward. The fundamentals were very strong, audiblizing the parasite.

There should be another one on 6240 in the other direxion, this one with NHK English audio, but did not notice it. After 0600, of course, 6045 becomes an intentional frequency with KBSWR relay, but then with none others to overleap (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 6070, no signal from CFRX at 0519 Sept 19; usually VG even in the nightmiddle, and so was Sackville, so suspect off the air. Back, however, at next check 1239, phone conversation about home improvement, aluminum vs vinyl? With fast SAH, presumably North Korean carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [and non]. Firedrake Sept 19: at 1242, very poor on 8400, merely poor on 9000; none heard on 10-11-13-14 MHz channels, but at 1308 came upon FD too on 15425, aside unID weaker carrier hetting from 15427, surely today`s frequency for V. of Tibet via Tashkent, per Aoki at 1300-1330 also 15427 but varying 15422-15429, not to be confused with VOT via Dushanbe on 15412-15422.

15795, Sept 19 at 1303 mixture of Indian music and Chinese talk, i.e. AIR Mandarin service via Bengaluru, and CNR1 jamming, as the ChiCom control freaks will not even allow neighboring India to speak to Chinese people, while CRI has numerous broadcasts in Bengali, English, Hindi, Mandarin and Tamil totally unimpeded to India. The paranoids in Beijing also have no sense of fair play whatsoever, and this also applies to all their international relations, trade and otherwise (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. RHC Sept 19 at 0524: 6140, 6120 and 6000 in Spanish; 6060 and 6010 in English translating remarx of Puerto Rican singer Ol`ga Cañón who is in Habana for a Sunday concert at Plaza de la Revolución, on the very same stage previously occupied by Pope John Paul II!! Alex Silva`s English version left something to be desired. He said she said that “Cuba is open to the world“. Ha ha, please remind the DentroCuban Jamming Command about that!

At 1358 noticed RHC echoing on a single frequency, 13720. This is the leapfrog of 13760 over the open carrier on 13740 about to start CRI relay in English; and the echo must have come from extreme overload by the unsynchronized audio from the other transmitter site on 13680 and/or 13780 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDIA. Rarely get readable signals from transpolar India here on 60m, so very pleased Sept 19 at 1233 to hear English news of India on 4920, AIR Chennai, averaging S9+10, and over CODAR; 1234 to Hindi, ads? Best extracontinental signal on band, grayline fits, better than 4750 or 5030. So not Tibet, which was my guess as 4920 music source a few days ago.

At 1429 on 11585, more Indian music past 1431, then announcement with hum. This is the Sindhi service via Delhi (Khampur?) site. Certainly not DRM, which Aoki says was in use until Sept 11.

Checked 9425 at 1431 and found AIR news in English, flutter, 1435 back to music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also CHINA [and non]

** PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3335 at 1223 Sept 19 with island music, guitar and singing, just above CHU 3330 pips still JBA, and improving slightly, 1229 pause and more such music but no announcement. Surely Radio East Sepik, Wewak, the best non-Tennessee signal on 90m; traces on a few other PNG channels, notably 3385 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ###
