Glenn Hauser logs September 12-13, 2011

** ANTARCTICA. 15476, Sept 13 at 1247 nothing detectable from LRA36, and only a few signals on 19m, Cuba and VOA 15590 best. Not checked again until 1403 when band has opened up a lot, and there is a carrier now on 15476, with bits of music, still JBA at 1420 making 4 kHz het against 15480 doomed Rampisham (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. Firedrake Sept 13:
7970, poor at 1235
10300, good at 1241
11500, poor at 1242, SAH atop another carrier
13920, very poor at 1245
13960, poor at 1245 (not usual 13970); none in the 14s and up
15900, JBA with flutter at 1359-1400*; no time to check for more now

** EGYPT. 17625, again Sept 12 at 1922, no signal from R. Cairo, but a JBA one with Doppler wobble on 15270 at 1926. Wolfgang Büschel suggests 17625 may have been an antenna test for possible Fulani use in the next season, and that seems plausible. In that case it would not matter what language they put on it, whatever is handy, such as English on the air at the same time. But the whole thing is an exercise in futility unless they can manage to modulate at a normal level (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA. 9525-, VOI, Tuesday Sept 13 at 1302 poor with opening Exotic Indonesia conversation between Jak and the RRI Banjarmasin guy; 1303 opening news from Jak, 1305 over to YL in Banjarmasin for some news from her area about landslides, etc. Noted one intermittent audio dropout before going to Singapore 9740 to listen to BBC clearly the rest of the hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. Sunrise DX Sept 13, UT:

580, Sept 13 at 1206, mentions Chihuahua several times and program `Amanecer Ranchero`, so per Cantú:
580 XEFI Radio Mexicana Chihuahua, Chih. 5,000 700

620, Sept 13 at 1208 with 6:07 TC on the 13 de setiembre, so:
620 XEBU La Norteñita Chihuahua, Chih. 5,000 1,000
the only Mexican in the UT-6 timezone

680, Sept 13 at 1212, `La Mera Jefa`, Sonora, promo, but must have said Sinaloa, as this is the only one:
680 XEORO La Mera Jefa + FM 93.7 Guasave, Sin. 1,000 500
The slogan means literally “The mere boss“ [female], but perhaps a native speaker can explain what this slang really refers to. Is it misogynistic, or misanthropic? Other stations on 820, 970 even call themselves “La Mera Mera“ (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 15120, Sept 13 at 0525, VON in well on another of its rare appearances, audio glitches, hummy and undermodulated, overaccented, making copy difficult: YL talking about sports in Soweto; not much else on 19m except Australia 15160, 15240, and no hi-latitude ChiCom QRM on 15120 for a change. Into a fade at 0534 so I turned on BFO and noticed a WINB-like warble, carrier instability; resurged around 0545 with African music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SUDAN [non]. 13620, Sept 13 at 0524, R. Dabanga via MADAGASCAR, good in Arabish and no 1000 Hz tone jamming audible for a change; maybe it was propped out from a higher latitude path. Nothing audible on // 13730 via Germany, altho Vatican was in well on 13765, much better than VOR via DVR on 13775. O yeah, that`s because this Vatican is also via Madagascar (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TAIWAN [non]. 15690, Sept 12 at 1924, nice chimes, Chinese ID, into French, 1925 RTI ID in French, fair with flutter. This 19-20 500 kW, 190 degrees via FRANCE is the only real French broadcast of RTI, altho we were treated to some French by mistake several nights ago before 0600 on 5950 via WYFR (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U K [non]. 7305, Sept 13 at 0528, BBC chimes under DRM noise, 0529 into Hausa, and QRDRM continues past 0530, still at 0545. HFCC shows this is no accident, as two stations think they can share the frequency during this semihour: BBC Hausa via Ascension, 250 kW, 55 degrees, and RRI English DRM via Galbeni, 300 kW, 300 degrees to UK (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1570, Sept 13 at 0543 UT, something in English is briefly atop XERF, promoting an upcoming game on “Classic Hits 106.3“. Googling leads to KVTK 1570 Vermillion SD, counterpart of KVHT 106.3, which apparently takes overflow games from 1570`s sports format.
Vermillion Ticket & Vermillion Hits the calls must denote. 1570 is supposed to be 71 watts at night, 500 at day; I wonder which? Poor XERF is not getting the protexion it deserves from all the US stations which once were banned at night from 1570. This channel is anything but `clear` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 17580, Sept 13 at 1401, Family Radio in S Asian language, but with very heavy SAH at 264/minute = 4.4 Hz from an equally strong open carrier. HFCC shows only YFR in Bengali via Wertachtal is supposed to be on here now, altho MBR tried Issoudun instead from July 5 to 8. Maybe Issoudun forgot to keep the transmitter off now? Or YFR via Ascension in English which is not supposed to start until 1500 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Correxion to yesterday`s unID: 9889.0-SSB, NOT 9989.0-SSB: Sept 12 at 1234, 2-way in Spanish, suffering from 9890 Thailand het, (and SSB QRM to it), plus 9885 VOA Spanish splash (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
