Glenn Hauser logs March 16-17, 2010

** BRAZIL [and non]. 9645.3, R. Bandeirantes, full ID for all SW frequencies with callsigns, March 17 just as I intuned at 0638; only slight het from WYFR mixing product on 9645.0 = 9715 leaping over 9680. These two had been extremely strong a semihour earlier, but now downfaded along with their spur (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. Firedrake, March 17: at 1318 on 8400 good but with heavy flutter. At 1423 found even bigger FD on 9345 against nothing detectable, // 8400. And not on 9380 today. Nothing known to be on 9345 at this time altho the hour has been reserved by Tashkent, so perhaps something new and objexionable to the ChiCom has started (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 7405, DentroCuban Jamming Command, vs. R. Martí, March 17 at 0605 with a different disruption, a continuous ringing sound of several quickly alternating pitches, and no noise wall. With BFO on, can detect many different slightly offset carriers, rather like the wideband whine often heard in the daytime centered on 17450. However, RM was still readable, if one could mentally tune out the tones.

6030, another jammed RM frequency, March 17 at 0610 had the same ringing sound but this one also mixed with usual noise wall and RM not copyable here. However, at 0633 I noticed that R. Martí was coming in much stronger on 6030, well atop the jamming, discussing the hunger-strike death of political prisoner Zapata Tamayo. Propagation must have shifted considerably, altho it seemed like RM had just turned up its power, presumably not an option (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CYPRUS. 18015-18040, OTH radar pulses presumed from here, March 17 at 1434 as I was on my way to check 18057.9 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** FRANCE [non]. 21690, RFI via GUIANA FRENCH, March 16 at 1802 in French, not Spanish as had been reported previously at this time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 15650, VOG in Greek at 1801 March 16, rather than B-09 scheduled 15630 at 1600-1950; mistake? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDIA. A strike at AIR was scheduled by the unions for March 17, but if so, no effect noted on GOS 9690, at 1343 usual M announcer reading commentary about trade with China, IMF; outro by W and 1345 program summary for rest of the sesquihour in IST. Fair reception with usual hum (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA. 9524.9, VOI not in English at 1315 March 17, but instead slow Chinese with heavy accent; undermodulated with hum. Retune 1401 to find Celtic/Indonesian music playing with drone, perhaps in tribute to St. Patrick, cut off abruptly at 1403:40* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN. 9875, March 17 at 1308 NHK IS prior to peculiarly-timed English broadcast at 1310-1340, and next check 1317 in English news. This is another transmission destined for extinxion in a sesquiweek with the onset of A-10 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN [and non]. REE`s co-official language Catalan was missing from its token slot 1340-1345 UT March 17 on 17595, via Costa Rica 15170, 11815, with music fill instead. 1345 into Gallego with sea-shanty tune, and 1350 “Basque“ segment not in Basque but instead Castilian immediately talking about “la lucha contra ETA“. Only a few words of Basque heard in the 1355 outro, which are safely recorded and cleared of objexionable content. From A-10 this M-F segment presumably will shift to 1240-1255 on all available frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WTJC, 9370, stronger than usual in the nightmiddle, March 17 at 0604 and accompanied by dirty spurs matching 9370 modulation peaks, each spreading from 9340 and 9400 but worse on the lower side. They may be there all the time but audiblized only when the fundamental inbooms (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5050, very distorted modulation with Bible reading, March 17 at 0615, and splattering down to 5035, less so on the hi side. Completely blox Brasil on 5045. Must be WWRB, the occupant of 5050 earlier, and not the first time it has been heard on later than usual. At 0630 recheck, carrier still on but no modulation or splatter, so Pará was again audible (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5890 WWCR, Pastor Pete Peters overmodulating and distorting, March 17 at 0618. 5080 WTWW with same problem but not quite as bad, so apparently fed that way via uplink. Stations which plug into such a network without constant human supervision are at mercy of the originator to maintain proper modulation. PPP was promising some major expansion of his egotistic outreach, kept secret until revelation at a Branson gathering of male Aryans in June (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, WRMI, Wednesday March 17 at 1530, WORLD OF RADIO 1504 confirmed on its first SW airing this week; no jamming audible, but signal weak, still on the SSE rather than NW antenna. Next airings are Thursday 2100 (not on SW?), UT Friday 0030, and 1430.

Also on WBCQ 7415 (and maybe 9330-CUSB?) Wednesday and Thursday 1900; WWRB UT Friday 0330 on 3185; WWCR Friday 2030 on 7465 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9265, WINB without Brother Scare, March 17 at 1321 but fill music not // 9385 WWRB; and then a weight-loss commercial, more music. 1330 Overcomer Ministry theme music and now // 9385 but some 2.5 sex ahead of it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 7225, strong open carrier March 17 at 1339, but this time no SSB hams riding it. No doubt it`s IBB Tinang, PHILIPPINES, warming up for its takeover of 7235 at 1400 from TINIAN in VOA Korean service, which before then was quite weaker on 7235 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED [and non]. 6050, het still audible at 1328 March 17. On the lo side it`s surely Sarawak, and 6050.0 assumed to be HCJB, which is certainly the case an hour earlier, but by now could it be Tibet instead, per Aoki the only other station scheduled? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ###
