Glenn Hauser logs December 29-30, 2011

** BRAZIL. 11780, Dec 30 at 0635, strong open carrier, and just about the OSOB, from RNA; 0645 finally starts modulating with Portuguese wake-up talk in progress (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. Firedrake Dec 30: none found 18-7 MHz 1346-1350, except:
12500, good with flutter at 1349; another search at 1437+ lacked even this (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. After lack of DentroCuban Jamming Dec 28, I am listening carefully for it Dec 30 at 1343 vs VOA Spanish service frequencies during newsmagazine `Buenos Días, América` 1330-1400 M-F: none detectable on 9885 or 15590, but slight bubble jamming audible underneath 13750. 9885 had slight CCI from another broadcaster, i.e. VOR Hindi via Tajikistan. VOA was running a promo for `De Capital a Capital` show which is “música y más música“, but failing to reveal any time for it! Now need to check for jamming against VOA`s evening broadcast in Spanish, which may be more problematic if part of it is still shared with Radio Martí (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ECUADOR [non]. 12025, good signal Dec 29 at 2135 nice music, not obviously evangelical, from HCJB Arabic service via CANADA, 2144:30 cut abruptly to RCI IS until 2145* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN. 11860, fair with flutter Dec 30 at 1513, SW Asian music, strumming and signing, 1518 YL mentions Azerbaijan, 1521 more singing, 1526 definitely Russian talk, more music cut off abruptly at 1527:10*. Aoki reveals this was VIRI Russian Service, 1430-1528, 500 kW, 330 degrees from Sirjan, also USward (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 5985, Dec 30 at 1341, via JSR Tokyo/Yamata, JAPAN, Shiokaze in Japanese with lite het from off-5985 Myanmar; 1421 I thought it was Korean, but definitely another Japanese ID at 1422, so as expected, no English this Friday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MAURITANIA. 7245, Friday Dec 30 at 0636, IGIM has not shown up yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. Dec 29 at 1728 UT check of ch A2 finally shows some signs of E-skip, peaking SSW, music and Spanish, mix of several weak signals. Nothing in the TV-FM Skip Log yet, and in DX Sherlock on 6m, only one red contact between FL and TX showing. 1734 news about Coahuila, but may be national. It`s net 4, with f bug in lower left. Now ch 3 is starting to propagate, sounds like a net-5 toon, but next video is visibly human. Mostly gone by 1740, and nothing further developed in the next hour.

Another bit of NTSC video on ch 2 appeared around briefly at 0030 UT Dec 30. By then there was lots of 6m Es activity on the Sherlock map centered over Missouri, which is too close to be useful here. So far this `winter sporadic E` season has been a bust. 73, (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SUDAN [non]. 7315 via FRANCE, better than // 11940 via MADAGASCAR and only a trace on 13800 via UAE, Dec 30 at 0413, Radio Tamazuj, new target broadcast for the South/North Sudan border conflict area, with indigenous music and presumed colloquial Arabic, as publicized here: http://blogs.rnw.nl/medianetwork/radio-tamazuj-begins-test-transmissions-to-sudan
Their own website hasn`t been activated yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** TAIWAN [non]. Further chex for RTI`s missing Spanish broadcasts, UT Dec 30: at 0215, WYFR 9355 again has RTI English // 9680, while 5950 is open carrier; 11995 via GUF also in open carrier and still so at 0222. By 0220, 5950 achieved undermodulation // weaker signal, more modulation on 9355 and best 9680, i.e. RTI English, not Spanish. At 0638, 6875 was still in German, not Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 10000, Dec 29 at 2118 checking WWV propagation minute: SF 147, A=6, K@21=1, no, minor-G1. There was crosstalk underneath, sounded like a previous prop report incompletely erased, which stopped as soon as the new one did (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1597 monitoring: confirmed Thursday Dec 29 at 2200 on WTWW 9479; and at 2230:30 on WBCQ 7415, after a filler following Amos `n` Andy, `12 Days of Red Neck Xmas` by The Cable Guy. After 0430 UT Friday Dec 30 confirmed on WWRB 3195 (5050 was back on earlier with separate programming, but not heard by 0415). The 0600 UT Friday WRMI broadcast, checked 9955 at 0627, WOR confirmed fading up and down vs the pulse jamming; R. Praga at 0632 seemed to achieve a better average S/N ratio. Further scheduled WOR airings:

WRMI 9955: Sat 0900, 1600, 1830, Sun 0900, 1630, 1830.
WTWW 5755: UT Sun 0500
WBCQ 5110v-CUSB: UT Monday 0330 (not 0430 as I misspoke on WOR 1597) and biweekliness already confirmed on the UT January 2 schedule at http://www.worldmicroscope.com/ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5050, Dec 30 at 0215, WWRB is back on this frequency; was previously // 3195, but now has two separate preachers. Next check at 0415, 5050 inaudible and presumably off the air, or just outfaded? Anyhow, only 3195 audible during Friday 0430 WORLD OF RADIO (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
