Glenn Hauser logs December 27-28, 2011

** BOTSWANA. 15570, Dec 27 at *2058, my tune-up theory is confirmed, as I was waiting for VOA on both 15570 and 15580. The lower came on with carrier at 2058, by 2059 VOA Bonaire was off 15580, but 15570 Botswana did not cut to 15580 until a few notes of the VOA opening had played on 15570 at 2100. Well, that`s quite an improvement over staying on 15570 the whole hour like yesterday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. Re previous report of REE IS on 7220 at 1358-1400: I meant to add that the intentional REE relay via China is on 11910 at 12-14, sometimes audible here too (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 7450, Dec 27 at 2041, good with sacred choral music, sounds like Monteverdi; 2047 Greek announcement and more modern classical music, 2100 Greek news. Is ERT3 Macedonian service; checked 9420 which would not be //, but main VOG channel not audible there (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN [non]. 9965, Dec 27 at 2015, rather traditional ME music, so did not think at first it would be R. Farda, but so IDed at 2025 and more of same, not the usual Persian/American pop. Maybe just an aberration. Quite a good signal, from the other worldside, 250 kW, 332 degrees USward from Iranawila, SRI LANKA at 1900-2130 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KUWAIT. 15540, no sign for weeks of R. Kuwait here for the 18-21 UT English broadcast, again checked at 1830 Dec 27. I suppose it is still on the air, and they just don`t care or understand that it`s not propagating in the dead of winter. Can it be detected in Europe? Also check 11990, the long-announced imaginary ex-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. Re my previous report of not hearing XEOI, Julián Santiago Díez de Bonilla, DF, replies: “Radio Mil onda corta 6010 kHz está al aire y con su misma potencia nominal de 1 kW“. Current scheduling in Aoki of the big QRMers Cuba, Iran, RFA, indicates best windows for R. Mil should be 0000-0030, 0330-0500, 0700-0900. Except Colombia is also on 24 hours (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 9675, Dec 27 at 1845 and 2045, talk in language hard to place, not sharp modulation, with reverb, but listed as BSKSA Turkish service, 500 kW, 340 degrees USward from Riyadh (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TAIWAN [non]. 9355, Dec 28 at 0245-0250, confirmed that zero percent of the four scheduled Spanish hours of RTI are going out via WYFR. This one is in RTI English // 9680 and 5950, which are supposed to be the only two frequencies for it at this hour; makes up, I guess for no English at 0500 on 6875, Chinese instead. Unlike last night, the 9355 signal is sufficient, and the // 11995 via Guiana French is missing instead of open carrier all hour. That leaves one possible RTI Spanish broadcast on SW anywhere, 20-21 on 3965 via Issoudun, FRANCE. I`m still waiting for anyone in Europe to confirm whether it exist. Chances are not good for inpulling it here, but I may have to attempt it. Unless, of course, totally SNAFU, RTI is sending out Spanish at some times scheduled for even other languages (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5050, confirming WWRB is no longer heard here, 0245 check Dec 28, just on 3195 for the non-BS programming, including WORLD OF RADIO, UT Fridays 0430+ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
