Glenn Hauser logs April 27, 2010

** ANTARCTICA. 15476, LRA36 confirmed active on another Tuesday, not just M/W/F, April 27 at 1231 very weak but some music audible. 1300 still there but increased ACI from 15480, PRES in Belarussian via Woofferton UK. Checked again at 1357, now ACI not a problem, LRA36 still very weak, but music with heavy beat continues past hourtop until finally 1407 YL talking, but just too weak.

It seems the great majority of airtime is devoted to music, but surely not Antarctic traditional as there are no anteskimos; instead it`s to plant the flag of Argentine expansionism, in defiance of the Antarctic Treaty against territorial claims upon the continent (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. Firedrake April 27:
 8400, poor at 1327
12950, good at 1315, none lower down to 10 MHz; also at 1417
13300, good at 1224, very good at 1417
13970, good at 1306, much better than 15970; very good at 1417
14900, JBA at 1314
15970, JBA at 1306

** CUBA [and non]. 12030, RHC at 1316 April 27, fair with CCI sounding Russian, which fits as VOR is also scheduled here from Irkutsk during this hour in Russian, per Aoki; Commies vs ex-Commies. Also QRMing CODAR. But this collision pales in comparison to jamming VOR`s Spanish service evenings on 9810 via GUF (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** FRANCE [non]. 13640, RFI Spanish service via GUIANA FRENCH, April 27 at 1225, correspondent with very strange accent; I guess it`s African-influenced more than French-, about music groups associated with the Copa del Mundo in Sudáfrica — why isn`t that about a silly ballgame instead of music? 1229:30 transitioned to ME music so smoothly that at first I thought it was another RFI service, but really I was then hearing Turkey on 13635 after TDF QRT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDIA [and non]. 9690, April 27 at 1324 had some music, without a hum, which I figured was something other than AIR; however, no transmission break noted before 1330 as AIR opened GOS in English, and now there`s hum. Perhaps Bengaluru was warming up with a locally- played prélude, but also on 9690 during this hour is Deewa Radio, Pashto via Sri Lanka, and Voice of Nigeria is allegedly running English from 09 to 15, perhaps from its new transmitter in Abuja (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA. 9526-, VOI`s Tuesday “Exotic Indonesia“ excursion to Banjarmasin was dashed by total lack of modulation other than hum, but good signal April 27 from 1323 tune-in, and never came back past 1341 and 1350 as I left a receiver running on it. I wonder if they were blithely producing the hookup assuming they were really on the SW air?

Prior to 1300, 9526- was doing fine with Japanese service, seemed like Indonesian lesson shortly before hourtop. And it was also on the air during the 14 UT hour, abnormally, as CRI Russian 9525.0 had a het at 1426. The unreliability of some SW stations is really incredible (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** RUSSIA. VOR continues to ruin its Pashto/Dari service by failing to get the modulation to come out of the 15510 transmitter unscathed. April 27 at 1355, 15510 had severe audio break-up, or should I say, breaking in for split seconds during music, from Love Story(?). Aoki says it`s 250 kW, 110 degrees via Krasnodar; HFCC says 250 kW, 140 degrees via Samara; Eibi too says Samara (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VATICAN. 17765, April 27 at 1311 Chinese with VR ID, Laudetur J.C., a dead giveaway, as was the first note of the IS, cut off at 1312, but back on a few sex later, 1315 opening in Vietnamese. VR at SMG was moving its antenna from 65 to 72 degrees during the brief break, probably inconsequentially as signal continued equally fair (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15385, like April 25, again some station running tone tests, sweeps and steps from hi to very low pitches April 27 from 1412 tune-in until 1414:30*. Strong signal but with flutter, so unlikely Greenville (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ###
