Glenn Hauser logs May 13-14, 2013

** ANTARCTICA. 15476.0, Monday May 13 at 1825 on the Twente SDR, I can detect a carrier here on offset LSB setting (but in CW tuning it zeroes circa 15475.5 — must be deliberately offset in the receiver). Anyhow, presumed LRA36 back on the air after weekend break. Dave Hughes in Missouri also reported it a few minutes earlier, presumably by same method. I`ve yet to see any direct logs of it this date, even from S America; still not clear whether schedule is M-F 18-21 or 18-22 UT, or if it varies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BANGLADESH. 15505, May 14 from *1355:31 with IS; very poor signal but can barely make out timesignal ending at 1359:39.5 for Urdu service of Bangladesh Betar (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. Firedrake, May 14 before 1300:
13795, very poor at 1247 with CCI from presumed Kuwait

All other ex-FD frequencies continue to provide CNR1 audio jamming:
13920, good at 1247
15940, good at 1247
16100, good at 1252 with flutter
16360, poor-fair at 1252
16910, fair at 1252
17170, fair at 1252
17250, very poor at 1252
17370, good at 1252, with ute beeps on hi side

** CHINA [non?]. 21470, Tue May 14 at 0510, very poor signal here in Chinese, slightly on the low side compared to 1470. DX Re Mix News just published a revised schedule of VOA Tibetan showing 17605 from Tinang, PHILIPPINES, has been replaced by a different 21 MHz frequency each day of the week during this hour, including 21470 on Tuesdays, i.e. starting on Sundays: 21545/21460/21470/21480/21490/21510/21530. Latest HFCC as of May 8 shows both TINIAN and Tinang at 05-06 Tuesdays only.

21460, then at 0512 Tuesday May 14 found an equally weak signal here, also seems Chinese, not sure, but not // 21470. HFCC has that as IBB Mandarin via Tinian, plus IBB Tibetan via Tinang, but on Mondays only. However, one or both signals I was getting could have been ChiCom jamming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** FRANCE [non]. 17660, May 14 at 1258, spirited discussion in French about telephones; slightly late 3-pip timesignal at 1300 and off with no ID heard. HFCC shows RFI via SOUTH AFRICA, 12-13 at 342 degrees (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KUWAIT. 21540, May 14 at 1305, 1346, 1422, R. Kuwait is missing from what had usually been the SSOB; while Spain 21515, 21610, Saudi +buzz 21505 are audible. Well, we got Tunisia back, so now we lose Kuwait (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU [and non]. 5980, May 14 at 0058, R. Chaski carrier is weakly detectable in the hash and noise level. This time it goes off at 0059:51.5* which is before Cuba cuts CRI carrier on 5990; in fact that was starting to open a delayed English hour. But it shouldn`t be long before Chaski cutoffs, 5 seconds later each day, become after 5990 is no longer a problem (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TUNISIA. 7275, May 14 at 0526, IWT is back! With Arab music, 0530 Arabic talk somewhat undermodulated. Only fair signal now unlike winters, with lots of absorption in the way. Have been checking this every night since last heard April 23, i.e. missing for 20 days, as were all other frequencies. Are those back too? 17735 & 7335 mornings, 17735, 7225, 7345 evenings (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 18965, May 14 at 0516, fair open carrier with slow fades; and there it is again at 1255-1301+. The fading indicates it is not local, and could be utility, but this is officially an almost never-used SWBC band. BTW, latest HFCC May 8 shows absolutely nothing on the 18 MHz band, not even R. Australia 19000 as there are no ABC entries at all (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
