Glenn Hauser logs May 12-13, 2013

** AUSTRALIA [and non]. 11665, May 13 at 1500, RA English is still usurping MALAYSIA`s only 25m channel, poor signals but roughly equivalent, and RA // stronger 12065 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** AUSTRALIA [and non]. 15340, May 13 at 1427, HCJB causes heavy CCI to RHC, but after 1500 RHC is off, and at 1504, HCJB in the clear with Protestant propaganda in English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. Firedrake May 13, before 1300:
13795, good at 1248

As ever now, all the others occupied by CNR1:
13830, fair at 1250
14750, very good at 1250
15570, fair at 1251, het on lo side from V. of TIbet
15870, poor at 1251
15900, poor at 1250
16100, good at 1255
16360, good at 1255
16920, good at 1256
17170, very good at 1257; none in the 18s

After 1300:
13795, still on with true Firedrake at 1308, now over some CCI

** CHINA [and non]. 15430, May 13 at 1504, very heavy CCCCCCI, sounds like at least three signals, two of which would be jamming against R. Free Asia, Chinese this hour only via SAIPAN (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 17580, May 13 at 1427, RHC AWOL from this frequency, still on 17730 et al. on lower bands. 15340 has heavy CCI from HCJB AUSTRALIA, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GERMANY [non]. 9800, May 13 at 0508, DW English via RWANDA, due south from Kigali, has considerable CCI from algo, but can`t make out the language. HFCC shows nothing else scheduled here, but there is of course the recent almost-24-hour National Emergency Broadcast via the Shijuazhuang 723 site in CHINA, the bullies, as in Aoki, which clashes with many existing 9800 users. Either that or maybe Romania didn`t turn off 9800 by 0500, unlikely (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN. 21650, May 13 at 1259, VIRI IS with poor signal until 1300:21*, i.e. tail of the Chinese hour, 65 degrees from 500 kW Kamalabad; meaning that whatever next frequency from this unit would be late coming up. IRIB not often audible here on 13m; at this time, Kuwait and Saudi were better than Spain (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 960, May 13 at 0501:25, KGWA Fox-hole of dead air except for hum when nulled, audiblized a mixture of stuff including ABC news, but clearly heard at this moment are the four descending “XEW“ chimes which we know come on 960 from XEK in Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas. KGWA Enid continues to fill the hole unpredictably but most nights is clear for a pentaminute (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 9700, May 13 at 1231, after missing yesterday, RNZI is back here obviously on non-solid Timor antenna, with “29 until 11“ time check during `Checkpoint`, which is two hours late as local time is really 29 until 1 am (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, May 13 at 0053, R. Chaski carrier is weakly audible in all the noise, hash & splash from 5990 Cuba, and I monitor continually with BFO. It does go off circa 0100.0, but cannot hear a clear cut as it may have been in a fade at that instant. So the timer has been reset.

Martien Groot has also been monitoring this: “Hallo Glenn, Re: Chaski found missing May 12 at 0103. Ute usually blocking 5980 was off May 11 at 2239 tune-in, instead noted what was definitely R Chaski completely in the clear with Spanish announcements, preaching & hymns/praise songs to eventual 0059:45 early s/off May 12. Which explains why you could not trace them. As you suggest they must have reset their timer. 73, Martien Groot, Schoorl, Netherlands“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1668 monitoring: confirmed Sunday May 12 starting at 2328:46 on WTWW-2 9930. This is exactly the same time it started on Saturday May 11, so I conclude it is now controlled by computer/automation (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 17720, May 13 at 1506, steady open carrier for a few seconds before cutoff: maybe Greenville checking out a transmitter, altho nothing scheduled from it or anything the next few hours on 17720. VOA often tunes up on otherwise unused frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
