Glenn Hauser logs May 15, 2012

** BRAZIL. 6180 & 11780, May 15 at 0520, RNA continues to run all-night, every night (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 6140, May 15 at 0618, leapfrog mixing product audible, 6080 CRI English on wrong frequency instead of 6190, over 6110 NHK English on correct frequency, another 30 kHz higher, more audio from CRI than NHK. Looked for it after finding that tonight is another SNAFU at Sackville. How about leaping the other way to 6050? If there, totally obscured by RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. Firedrake May 15, before 1300:
12230, poor at 1249
13130, fair at 1249
14600, fair at 1249
14700, fair at 1249
15555, fair at 1251
15765, fair at 1251
15970, good at 1251
16100, good at 1251
17250, poor at 1254
17450, fair at 1254; none in the 18s

Before 1330:
13130, JBA at 1330; none in the 12s
13850, very poor at 1330
14700, fair-good at 1328
15500, fair at 1326, het on lo side
15970, poor at 1326
16100, good at 1326
17450, good at 1325

** CHINA [non]. Sackville keeps putting CRI on wrong frequency 6080 instead of 6190 at 0500: see CANADA; JAPAN [non]

** CUBA [and non]. 17580, May 15 at 1254, RHC is missing, still on 17730. 15340 is also missing at 1328, re-opening frequency for HCJB Australia with S Asian music. RHC still on 15230 and the lower frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CYPRUS [and non]. 13455-13470, May 15 at 0511, OTH radar pulses, presumed from here, marred by CODAR much slower pulsing also in this range, “Tie Me Kangaroo Down“-like (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDIA. 13695, May 15 at 1240 South Asian song stops, fair signal, then open carrier for 2+ minutes. HFCC shows this is the end of AIR`s Tamil/Telugu service at 1100-1245, (really 1115-), 500 kW, 108 degrees from Bengaluru; to resume same parameters from 1315 (really 1330-) with AIR GOS III in English. That`s ex-13710, whence CRI via Kashgar must have driven AIR off (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA. 9526-, May 15 at 1335, no signal detectable from VOI, altho RRI 9680 was incoming well atop the Chinese radio war. Atsunori Ishida shows he last heard 9526 May 12 until 1056* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN [non]. 6110 via CANADA almost synchronized with weaker 11970 via FRANCE, May 15 at 0515, NHK World with `Radio Japan Focus` talk about the new Sky Tree antenna tower in Tokyo, and how it is protected against lightning. 0522 on to `Once Upon a Time in Japan`, gross story about a mountain-witch a fellow mistakenly marries. 0529, 6110 cut off as usual before the full English schedule could be announced.

6080 via BONAIRE, at 0518, could hear R. Japón as usual with same subject in Spanish translation, equal mix with CRI English via Sackville once again on wrong frequency instead of 6190 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PHILIPPINES. 9430, May 15 at 1337, FEBC Chinese music and talk, poor signal and carrier wavering with BFO engaged; was much stronger before 1300 and only slightly distorted.

My previous report about this May 8 drew a response from Guy West, N0MMA, Team Leader of the Engineering Support Team. He says none of the Bocaue transmitters are vintage, all now Continental 418F, but “I suspect for one reason or another the program in question was running on our oldest Iba unit, since retired, as part of a maintenance strategy to free up a transmitter in Bocaue for service.“ (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN [non]. 11880, May 15 at 1231, REE via COSTA RICA is back in Basque this Tuesday, having defaulted to Castilian last Friday May 11; supposedly Basque M-F (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12133.5-USB, May 15 until 0513, AFN Florida, NPR News closing, delayed from 0501-0506, then Air Force Radio News, the latter with background music. Other two frequencies also back on tonight, and confirmed as 5446.5-USB and 7811.0-USB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7457-USB, May 15 at 1320, “AFE4TN for net control“ calling all stations in South Carolina; then Tennessee. Few audible replies; Air Force MARS. Of the 41,669 posts so far in the UDXF yg, only one hit on that call, for Jan 31, 2009, as a MARS Tennessee net, but no further ID info (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
