Glenn Hauser logs February 2, 2012

** CANADA. 9625, Feb 2 at 0641, CBCNQ is again running continuous tone test, on the air long after programming 0606*, and it`s the SSOB. Would that it were this loud and clear when there be programming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. Firedrake Feb 2:
12300, fair with flutter at 1415; none in the 13s, 14s, 15s, 16s, 17s
 9315, good at 1427 mixing with some Asian audio. Target is VOA Tibetan via Thailand during this hour only, which normally would be subjected to CNR1 jamming, as in Handler`s list, but Frodge has it as Firedrake (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [non]. 7210-LSB, Feb 2 at 1439 tuneby, the ranting anti-Castro tones of N1NR hardly need BFO, tnx to co-channel broadcaster, i.e. CRI Japanese via Xi`an (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GABON [non]. 9580, is Africa Number One gone? In Feb WDXC Contact, Arthur Miller in Wales says he has not heard it since start of the year, and editor Mike Barraclough finds the last report in the DXLD yg was Jan 3 at 1441-1445 by Bill Bingham in South Africa.

I have not noticed it either, so I check Feb 2 at 0640 — no signal there, just some poor French on 9575, presumably Morocco (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA. 9526-, Feb 2 at 1440, VOI is sufficient in Indonesian, mostly music until *1456 hit by 9525 het from China; both still on past 1502 today. If only VOI would move its English from the 13-14 to the 14-15 hour, as it`s a total loss before 1400 with all the ACI from 9530 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MAURITANIA. 7245, Feb 2 at 0643, IGIM is mixing bits of string music with comments by YL in Arabish, then some OM singing, not the soporific wake-up chanting which may have aired earlier today (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330-CUSB, Feb 2 at 1413, WBCQ dead air instead of Good Friends Radio Network — have they overslept in Orangeville, Ontario again, unaware that their feed to Monticello, Maine has crashed? Squeezed by VOK on both sides; even weaker by comparison at 1436 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1602: first airing Thursday Feb 2 at 2200:30 on WTWW 9479, then 2230 on WBCQ 7490, UT Friday 0430v on WWRB 3195. WRMI 9955: Sat 0900, 1600, 1830, Sun 0900, 1630, 1830, Mon 1230. WTWW 5755: UT Sunday 0500. Also on SiriusXM 120, Sat & Sun 1830, Sun 0930 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15468-SSB, Feb 2 at 1511, intruding intermittent 2-way in Spanish with het from 15470, i.e. YFR Marathi via Nauen; stronger by comparison when still going at 1527 recheck (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
