Glenn Hauser logs December 28, 2011

** CHINA. Firedrake Dec 28: 1350-1355, none found 7-18 MHz. Tnx to several other monitors who are still hearing it at various times, reports all collected in DXLD in date/time order (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 9885, 13750 and 15590, Dec 28 at 1345, all three VOA Spanish frequencies are free of jamming, during `Buenos Días América` correspondent reports from Venezuela, Argentina. Hardly could be coincidental so hope it is a change of policy by the DentroCuban Jamming Command, which continued as usual with walls of noise on R. Martí frequencies 5745, 11930 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CYPRUS [and non]. 17590-17615 and 17690-17715, Dec 28 at 1424, matching OTH radar pulses, presumed from here, QRMing broadcasters despite their strong signals: 17595 Spain, 17615 and 17705 Saudi Arabia, 17690 France via Guiana French (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. Re my previous report of 9420 missing, John Babbis says:

“Glenn: When I sent my Reception Report for December 28 to these people at the Voice of Greece, all 4 of the ones at ERA5 bounced back, as below. The one to Keramidas at ERT3 did go through. I wonder if they took the computers away from these 4 or maybe laid them off as part of the austerity in Greece? The 9420 transmitter has been off the air since December 22; saving electricity? John Babbis“

The bounce messages all say “554 – rejected for policy reasons“

Could be just offline for the holidays. John also reports Dec 28: WEB SITE OF VOICE OF GREECE DOWN FOR SEVERAL WEEKS — “The webpage cannot be found“

** MAURITANIA. 7245, Dec 28 at 0631, IGIM is on and chanting, weaker than Vatican neighbor 7250. Yesterday it was missing at this hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 1050, Dec 28 at 1401, choral NA is in progress, but of course it fades out before ID/sign-on. Loops E/W, and surely from the PST zone where it is 6 am, i.e. XED in Mexicali BCN a kilomile away (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO [and non]. 6010, Dec 28 at 1330, very weak signal fades up enough to tell it is in Spanish, so XEOI R. Mil is there between much stronger Juche jammer noise on 6003 and 6015. Might be better an hour earlier. In last report I indicated best window ending at 0900, but that`s only because Brasil supposedly starts 6010 then; that would soon fade out, and the only other stations scheduled co-channel are HJDH Colombia, which suppresses its signal to the north, would also have outfaded, and CNR-11 Tibetan service from Beijing starting at 1030, not much of a factor here. Carlos Gonçalves in Portugal and Manuel Méndez in Spain hear XEOI as late as 1000. RHC started with one hour at 12-13 on 6010 but then shifted to 6000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** PHILIPPINES. 9760, Dec 28 at 1507, VOA via Tinang-2, poor thing is in sad shape, strong carrier, but lowly modulated with `New Dynamic English` lessons. Can turn volume almost up to max for normal listening level, but that also brings up big hum (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 15460 // 17530, Dec 28 at 1352, RRI playing “Bring Me Down“ again, by YL pop singer in English, same as heard Dec 26 at 1547 in Arabic service on 15280 and 17540, but this is the German service. Found a YouTube of Kanye West rapping it plus Brandy on chorus, altho I did not hear the rap part either time, so maybe different version. What is the point of RRI playing this stuff? I am less and less impressed by their playlist (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TAIWAN [non]. 6875, RTI via WYFR is missing Dec 28 at 0634 check, during the hour which for weeks has been in wrong language German instead of Spanish. Have they finally decided there is no point in broadcasting German to Mexico at midnight? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7555.0, Dec 28 at 0245, only very weak signal here not off-frequency, so is it KJES? I guess so, as nothing else is scheduled. Current Aoki is showing the wrong timespan, 0100-0230 as in summer instead of 0200-0330 as in winter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
