Glenn Hauser logs November 27-28, 2011

** CHINA. Firedrake Nov 28, before 1500:
9200, poor at 1457; NO others audible 7-19 MHz, 1453-1500

Before 1600:
None at all audible 19-7 MHz, 1535-1542!

** CHINA. Much like RHC, but even more so, CNR1 overkills with multiple strong frequencies on the same band: Nov 28 at 1402, I am hearing // hyperChinese programming on 6105, 6125, 6145 and 6175.

Studying HFCC and Aoki, we find what`s really going on:
6105 is jamming VOA Chinese via Tajikistan.
6125 is legit CNR1, registered both from Beijing 572 and Shijiazhuang 723 sites
6145 is jamming RTI in Chinese, but also jamming PBS Qinghai, Xining
6175 is legit CNR1, Beijing 572 site

** CUBA [and non]. It was hardly a night off for the DentroCuban Jamming Command, UT Monday Nov 28 after 0400, when there is no Radio Martí to jam, and many other frequencies continued to be incompetently jammed in absence of their former victims or current victims only at other dayparts:

5955, at 0646 noise v long-gone R. República, instead v R. Nederland
6030, at 0638 wall of noise, no Martí and ruining chances for other DX
7365, at 0647 residual jamming vs non-Martí
7405, at 0647 heavier jamming vs non-Martí
9955, at 0644 heavy 2-tone pulsing and noise, no WRMI audible, which is running R. Praga in Spanish seven days a week during this semihour
9490, at 0647 residual jamming vs R. República via RMI via Sackville now scheduled UT Sun & Mon only 00-03
9565, at 0647 residual jamming vs non-Martí
9825, at 0647 residual jamming vs non-Martí

** CUBA. 9517-9518 approx. center of extremely distorted blob with buzz, Nov 28 at 1500, easily identified by RHC IS at 1502; it`s the 9540 transmitter which has landed here instead, after previous buzzy problems while it stayed on 9540. Could hear it from 9514 to 9522 on 1-kHz steps. Still the same at 1541 check.

9850, OK frequency at 1502 is amid frequency announcement, now with bands in disorder: presumably missed 19m first, then 31m including “9540“ not 9518, then 22m, then 25m. Repeated at 1530 as heard on 13670, which at 1506 was having problems, open carrier, cutting off and on. At 1531 into `Formalmente Informal` show (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EGYPT. 6270, Nov 27 at 2307, R. Cairo just barely modulated in English, mixed with Qur`anbits, usual pious programming before getting down to business with the news at 2315. This transmission to ENAm was missing 24 hours earlier. I see that it`s 325 degrees to CIRAF 8 and 9, while the 0200 English broadcast on 9315 goes slightly further west, 330 degrees to CIRAF 6 and 7. So Cairo has unmixed these two transmissions, in previous seasons designated and aimed at first to the west, second to the east (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** FRANCE [and non]. Mike Cooper reported another strike by RFI workers:

“Unions at RFI voted Thursday to begin a strike of undetermined length beginning at 2300 UT Sunday November 27. The vote was unanimous with one abstention, according to a statement posted at RFI Riposte, which adds: “No to the death of RFI. No to the merger of RFI and France 24 [TV]. Maintain editorial independence. No to the “siphoning” of resources from RFI to France 24. Keep the quality of the programs and the broadcast methods (shortwave, FM stations, satellite networks).”

RFI unions are calling for all merger efforts to stop until an appeals court renders its judgements. An assembly of RFI workers has been called for 11 am Paris time [1000 UT] on Monday on the 7th floor of the Maison de la Radio (Mike Cooper, 2322 UT Nov 26, DX LISTENING DIGEST)“

However, at 0636 UT Monday Nov 28, 9765 RFI English was still working, news of Africa and Mideast during `Paris Live` with current timecheck.

However2, at 1410 UT Nov 28, on 17690 via GUIANA FRENCH, no Spanish news but instead `RFI Musique` fill, rappy songs, one mixing French and English, // an echo apart from 17620 direct. At 1443, 17620 inserted backward Russian ID as `International French Radio` and again at 1451, amid English/French chansons, also on weaker 15300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MAURITANIA. 7245, Nov 28 at 0407, good signal with music, so IGIM is running all-night, at least this date, and could also just barely detect a carrier on MW 783 [not KSPI 784 spur], likely its parallel. Next check at 0639 on 7245 during monotonous chanting session; 0700 at a program change, a 4(?)-pip timesignal came by about 30 seconds late when I was not expecting it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 15120, Nov 28 at 0650, VON is the OSOB [only station on band], peaking only S9+5 during music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 17540, Nov 28 at 1533, good signal with YL repeating alky words slowly such as “cognac“, “whisky/whiskey“, “liqueur“. Heard some other words in Romanian, language lesson? More like a recipe. This is supposed to be Arabic service of RRI, so trying to corrupt the Islamic teetotalers? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 21610, Monday Nov 28 at 1532, echoey REE with `Paso a Paso` Monday gastronomic segment: still no quadrilingual news headlines which were M-F 1530-1545 in B-10, 1430-1445 in A-11. Have they dropped this in at some other unknown time in B-11?? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TAIWAN [non]. 6875, Nov 28 at 0631, RTI still in German; also heard a very weak similar signal on 6750, probably just receiver overload, as whatever its other defects, WYFR is usually spur-free (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1592 monitoring: UT Monday Nov 28 at 0407, VG on Area 51 via WBCQ, 5110+CUSB. Europeans please check Tuesday 1030 on Hamburger Lokalradio 5980 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
