Glenn Hauser logs May 9-10, 2012

** ANGUILLA. 11775, May 10 at 1258 and 1346, no signal from Caribbean Beacon, nor at 1554; IIRC it was on 6090 as usual around 0535 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 6080, May 10 at 0535, CRI English via Sackville is again on wrong frequency instead of 6190 during this hour, having failed to QSY at 0500. Shux, once again I tune in too late to hear the huge collision it must cause with NHK Bonaire in Spanish on 6080 until 0529 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammers against R. Free Asia in Mandarin, all poor and synchronized, May 9 at 1940+: 9455, 9875, 9905, 11785, 13780. Aoki May 10 and HFCC May 4 (not updated since, unusual!) agree on the sites: 9455 Saipan, 9875 Tinian, 9905 Palau, 11785 Tinian, 13780 Tajikistan. No sign of RFA on any of these, so each must be efficiently beaming most of it inward to China. (If I were hearing RFA instead, all these sites would not be synchro.) It`s also rather surprising that ChiCom jammers are audible here across the noon zenith as low as 9455 when it`s almost summer: just another indication of the brute force they employ/enjoy. And/or maybe some are arriving longpath (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. Firedrake May 10, after 1300:
15485, good at 1305, het on hi side

Before 1400:
16980, good at 1339; none in the 17s, 18s
16100, very good at 1339
15900, very good at 1341 just as there was a bad edit in the music
15615, good at 1340, mixing WEWN English! Had to happen, and -1400*
15490, good at 1359-1400*; open carrier a few sex after unlike 15615
14800, fair at 1342; none in the 13s, 12s, 11s

After 1400:
17560, fair at 1402, over weak CCI from V. of Tibet, Madagascar; haven`t heard these shifted to 17570 lately
15605, good at *1405

** COSTA RICA. 9630, May 10 at 0524, REE relay is back in whack, not wiping out the entire 31m band with spurs as it did 24 hours earlier, allowing us to hear again all the other stations (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GERMANY. 9735, Thursday May 10 at 0524, fair signal with gospel huxter in English, keeps mentioning “Yeshua“, citing Matthew XXI: 43. Haven`t noticed this before. 0529 outro as Bible Voice Broadcasting, P O Box 207, Asouk(??), Egypt. (I can`t find any such postal address on their website, nor in WRTH under CANADA.), or mail @ and off at 0530*.

No wonder I haven`t noticed it before: per HFCC, this 250 kW, 105 degrees from Wertachtal is scheduled 0500-0530 only on Thursdays, what luck! Plus 0500-0515 on Fridays; 0430-0500 on Tue/Wed/Thu. Remember when 9735 was a prime frequency of Deutsche Welle? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA. 9680, May 10 at 1351-1355+, YL solo music, then joined by gamelan orchestra, good signal way over China/Taiwan radio war, this RRI domestic service; unlike VOI 9526- which was a JBA carrier. Something is very wrong when the DS is so much better heard than the external service (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN. 17550, May 10 at 1320, nice Arabic vocal music, duet, good signal with no flutter, weakened quite a bit after 1330, but still fair after 1401. Is IRIB, 0530-1630, 500 kW, 259 degrees from Kamalabad (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN [non]. 9760, May 10 at 0525, SW Asian music, Turkey? Off without announcement at 0528*. No, it`s R. Farda, 100 kW, 108 degrees from Lampertheim, GERMANY at 0230-0530[sic] (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KUWAIT. After yesterday`s total mixup in R. Kuwait transmissions, I am checking out what happen May 9:

15540, May 9 at 1802 signal is only fair, at first in Arabic, but it`s just a divergence within the English-language “Islam & Peace“ evangelism show. At 1933 recheck, poor signal, in English, probably this-day-in-history segment. At 1959 is playing Arabic music, so switched program source? Maybe not, 2005 segué to country-rock in English.

13650, May 9 at 1802 is very poor with flutter, seems to be in Arabic as it should be. At 1937, Arabic music, heavy flutter. Off at 1959, and at *2001, 17550 comes on, very poor with flutter, bolstering our assumption that it`s the same transmitter despite some schedules showing overlapping times. Both are destined for Europe/N America. At 2012 it`s talking while 15540 is music so definitely not // now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SWAZILAND. 9500, May 10 at 0523, poor signal with African-accented preacher in English, past 0531 when maybe a different voice. We have been hearing this for weeks, but 9500 is on the HFCC registered schedule for TWR only in the evenings. Is it there now? No, still absent from latest HFCC dated May 4. Is in Aoki May 10 and EiBi May 6 as 05-08, 100 kW, 13 degrees from Manzini to CAf. Just-issued WRTH A-12 update has it under SOUTH AFRICA, this transmission to E Africa (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7555, May 10 at 0534, WEWN. R. Católica Mundial is missing again for at least the third straight night; and also absent at 1238 recheck. However, Regina Cœli is running at 1259 on 11550, about to join 12050. Maybe the 7 MHz antenna is out of order, or they decided to quit 24-hour operation. Around 0535 I trolled the 5-10 MHz area for a replacement and found none (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7811-USB, May 10 at 0544-0546, AFN with Jim Hightower commentary on Walmart. Intermittent ACI from another SSB on the hi side, too close for comfort, but I never could get that tuned in precisely (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330-CUSB, May 10 at 1241, dead air again from WBCQ Radio 2:11, but remodulating at 1312 recheck. Poor propagation and poor signal today (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
