Glenn Hauser logs March 29, 2010

** BURMA [non]. 9335, March 29 at 1310 talk in tonal SE Asian language, unseems Burmese, but resembling it, so perhaps one of the minority languages there, causing rippling het with V. of Korea English to North America, tsk2. 1316 mentioned kHz several times, and RFA jingle. This is via TINIAN at 1230-1430 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BURMA [non]. 15480, March 29 at 1526 collision between lofi talk in S Asian language and something weaker about 4 Hz away. Scheduled at 1430-1530 is Democratic V. of Burma via ARMENIA. So is Myanmar deliberately jamming this now? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [and non]. 13675, huge collision of Chinese vs Chinese at 1509 March 29, and a fast SAH between them. This is CNR1 jamming Radio Free Asia via TINIAN in Mandarin. A similar collision on 12025 at 1518, i.e. R. Free Asia via SAIPAN in Mandarin. Yet more of the same on 9455, also RFA SAIPAN in Mandarin, but whichever one was on top differed between 12025 and 9455 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. DentroCuban Jamming Command missed only the first day of R. Martí on A-season frequency 11845: at 1302 March 29 nothing but heavy noise jamming audible, tho RM is supposed to be on there from 13 to 17. OTOH, the RM B-frequency 15330 is now unjammed at 1429 check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CYPRUS. OTH radar pulsing, March 29 at 1450 on 17522-17538, only broadcaster bothered being something weak on 17555, which must be WYFR not yet inbooming here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EGYPT. 15065, March 29 at 1458, open carrier past 1501; 1539 recheck now with weak modulation, M talking slowly. Frequency and modulation are hallmarks of Cairo, and indeed this is now scheduled for Dari and Pashto at 13-16, ex-12170 in B-09, when Pakistan was supposedly using 15065 at this time, but I never heard that. Meanwhile, Cairo Arabic on 15080 with usual terrible crackly modulation. I wonder what the aeronauts think of all these intrusions into their band? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA. 9526-, Monday March 29 at 1326, VOI with flutter, hum and undermodulation, YL English segment tentatively titled “Focus on the World of Media“, but too poor to copy (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JORDAN [and non]. 11960, Arabic talk and music at 0523 March 29, some co-channel QRM under. Presumed Jordan and CNR1 Beijing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PHILIPPINES [non]. 15435, March 29 at 1428 open carrier, 1430 IS and opening “Radio Veritas Asia in Urdu“. Must be Vatican relay, ex-9540 and/or 9585 in B-09. Could clash with Saudi Arabia which comes on 15435 before 1500: yes, at 1456 the two were colliding, first BSKSA with open carrier, rippling SAH, 1457 cut on Arabic modulation but mix only a few sex before RVA stops mod, tho its carrier a while longer.

What about RVA`s Filipino service which follows at 1500, supposed to be on 15350 in A-10 via Vatican? No trace of it at 1500 or 1525 chex, and not on ex-11715 either (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** POLAND [non]. 11675 via AUSTRIA, March 29 at 1258, a bit of fill music as PRES always plays, a snatch of VTC music loop and off by 1259. Seems reception remains OK for English broadcast, but inconveniently for us an hour earlier from 1200 now. Quickly tuned to 11980 but too late to confirm whether that`s the // now via Woofferton, but Mike Barraclough got it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 17705, lo-fi talk in Arabic, March 29 at 1452, S9+15 and gone at next check 1529. It`s BSKSA on new frequency at 12-15 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also PHILIPPINES [non] 15435

** SPAIN. 15385, Monday March 29 at 1425, REE opening weekly Sephardic show, announcing same schedule as in B-09: Mon 1425 15385, Tue 0115 11795, 0415 9650, the others yet to be confirmed. This supposed A-10 schedule claims 1425 is on 15325 but glad to hear the announcer is not buying it:

** SWEDEN. 13870, R. Sweden in Swedish, good signal at 1516 March 29; and opening English at 1530, sufficient signal here tho aimed 120 degrees from Hörby. Big story today: Volvo becomes Chinese instead of American. (Romantics might interpret the name as meaning “I shall return“.) Also on 13870 for next English at new time 1700, 125 degrees, insufficient at 1714 check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 13570, WINB at 1502 March 29 signing on, unstable carrier, 1503 Tony Alamo opening show no. 643. The station with no shame, WINB has also welcomed back to the air, now that he`s out of prison, militia fanatic Mark Koernke, debited with inspiring Timothy McVey to bomb Oklahoma City. Poor Mark; I guess he wasn`t able to keep broadcasting while incarcerated like Bernie does. Feds have just raided some Michigan militians, not clear whether related to Koernke (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15550-USB, March 29 at 1714 check, just barely audible preacher, so WJHR is still active, pretending to be a SWBC station until the FCC has had enough of this (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ###
