Glenn Hauser logs April 18-19, 2013

** AUSTRALIA [and non]. Collision with SPAIN: q.v.

** CHINA. Firedrake April 19 circa 0130:
16160, very poor at 0131. Unusual time; no others found 11-19 MHz in complete scan until 0136

Firedrake April 19 before 1300, much more productive:
17450, very poor at 1242
17080, poor at 1242
16920, fair at 1243
16360, very poor at 1243
16160, very good at 1243
16100, very good at 1243
15900, very good at 1243
14700, good at 1247
13850, good at 1247
13820, poor at 1247 under R. Martí open carrier
13795, poor at 1247
12500, poor at 1247
11500, very poor at 11247; none in the 10s
That`s a total of 13 transmitters at once.

Firedrake April 19 after 1300:
15565, fair at 1319 – no further search as paying attention to events in Boston, OKC bombing commemoration (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6165, April 19 at 0451, RHC in wrong language, Spanish instead of English which is only on 6000 at this time. Spanish also on 6060, 5040; neither 6100 nor 6125 is on the air now.

Just as I expected, despite at least two hours of English yesterday morning on three frequencies, on April 19, RHC is back in correct language Spanish, at 1230 check news break in Spanish on all: 17730, 17580, 15230, 11860, 11760, 11690, 9850, 9550, 6150=mixing with RA in English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA. 9526-, April 19 at 1314, VOI carrier is back on after missing a few days, JBA music modulation. Ishida does not yet have an entry up for this date as of 1449 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENINGN DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 6010+, April 19 at 0448-0453+, Spanish discussion about crime, presumed R. Mil. At this time, no hets from other stations; is Colombia off? XEOI is usually reported on the lo side of 6010, but compared to 1010 signals, this is slightly on the hi side. Encroaching from above is bleed from the 6030 jammer pileup; on the lo side, splash from incomparably stronger 6000 RHC English. 6010 itself is about to be creamed directly by RHC English moving there from 0500 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PAKISTAN. 15730, April 19 at 1244, distorted music and announcements fading out and in. Can`t recognize the language, but HFCC, Aoki and EiBi all agree it can only be R. Pakistan, Chinese service at 1200-1300, 250 kW, 70 degrees from API-6 Islamabad (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, April 19 at 0038, carrier from R. Chaski, Urubamba, is detectable on the FRG-7, so this evening I decide to monitor it on the main rig, rather than going out to the cold, damp porch with the DX-398 as usual. Some but not all the household noise sources are off. Carrier cuts off at 0103:49* which is 5 sex later than last nite (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SARAWAK [non]. 15430, April 19 at 1232, R. Free Sarawak presumed, usual exposition in Iban. Had been on 15420 for about a week, but yesterday Ron Howard reported it back on 15430, and so it is today, nothing heard on 15420. Today`s Aoki & EiBi both have it still on 15420: EiBi with site Taiwan, but Aoki still shows Trinco, Sri Lanka, which has been denied by Victor Goonetilleke. HFCC has neither for this veiled service, but shows 15430 would clash with Romania in English at 11-12 to CIRAF 48 = East Africa from Sudan to Kenya. Is RRI still there? Has made some other frequency changes. Perhaps it was easier for RFS to change the frequency on the transmitter than on the website which kept showing 15430, as it does today, and furthermore they have finally changed the title from long-gone 11600 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN [and non]. 15160, April 19 at 0118, collision about equal level between R. Australia in English, and REE in Spanish. This has been going on for years at least in the A-seasons, currently a one-hour overlap with Spain on until 0200, Australia starting at 0100, per Aoki. Apologists for easily avoidable interference will say, fine! Two different target areas, not including where you are, so you have no standing in this matter.

I say: why use the same frequency when there are dozens of open frequencies nearby, so each station could be totally in the clear even in neighboring target areas?? Per Aoki, Australia is at 85 degrees across México, and Spain is at 242 degrees centered on southern Perú around Arequipa, but at those distances the signals spread out a lot, both towards the Americas from opposite direxions. Or they could split the difference at 0130 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1665 monitoring: confirmed Thursday April 18 at 2100.5 on 9479, WTWW-1.

Also confirmed UT Friday April 19 just ending at 0357 on 3195, WWRB. So would have started early about 0328. After a pause, Dave came on live, referring listeners to 3185 before turning off 3195. BTW, as usual, 3185 has a considerably stronger signal than 3195.

Next WOR airings: UT Saturday 0130v on Area 51 via WBCQ 5110v-CUSB. Saturday 0630 & 1430 on Hamburger Lokalradio 7265-CUSB. Saturday 1500 on WRMI 9955. Saturday 1730 on WRN via SiriusXM 120 (for the last time!). Saturday 2330v on WTWW 9930; UT Sunday 0400 on WTWW 5830; Sunday 2330v on WTWW 9930 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Further observations of WWRB not carrying Brother Scare:
9370, April 18 at 2104 dead air, then exposition about jet streams, climate changing, etc., eventually program ID as `Planet X`. This has been scheduled elsewhen on WWRB for a long time, so apparently such programing is being plugged into the transmitter which is normally exclusively for BS: contract closed, or just lost feed from Walterboro?

3185, April 19 at 0137, BS is back on now, altho not synch with 7490 WBCQ (it never is, but within a minute).

9370, April 19 at 1237, BS is also back here. Apparently it was a protracted feed outage yesterday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 960, April 19 at 0503 UT during KGWA Fox-hole, harmonica blues music is dominating rather than ABC News, indicating KGKL San Angelo TX has stopped running ND day pattern at nite, but WABG Greenwood MS may have resumed doing so (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
