Glenn Hauser logs October 12, 2013

** ALBANIA [and non]. 9515, Oct 12 at 0543, Arab music, very poor while // 9590 is a JBA carrier, i.e. CRI at 05-07 via Cërrik, 240 and 140 degrees respectively. Would expect 9590 to be better here, closer to directly off the back. Strangely, Algeria-via-France 9535 normally much stronger, is much weaker than 9515, and at first I wondered if that had moved to 9515 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BANGLADESH. 15105, Oct 12 just as I tune in Bangladesh Betar at 1240, it dumps off the air for about a minute, resuming in English and nice local music, poor with heavy flutter.

15505, Oct 12 at 1357, BB carrier is VP with flutter; 1358 IS; timesignal is JBA ending at 1400:02.5 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 9645, Oct 12 at 1150, major Western piano concerto, fair signal, and // 9540 poor; 1155 interrupted! for Cantonese announcement, so it`s CRI, both via Beijing site, at 215 and 142 degrees respectively per Aoki (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. Firedrake [non] CNR1 jamming Oct 12, before 1400:
12500, very poor at 1351
Except for inband traces on 15 MHz, no others found 12-18 MHz

** CUBA [and non]. 6125, Oct 12 at 0548, RHC English is back on proper frequency instead of jump to 6150, 24 hours earlier, and // usual 6165, 6060, 6000, 5040. Token broadcast of Austrian classical music on 6155 is again unimpeded (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUATEMALA. 4055, Oct 12 at 1141, Chinese talk backed up by dramatic music, probably something Biblical, as R. Verdad reproves it is multi-lingual. Earlier around 0550 I heard Dr. Madrid in English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDIA. 15040, Oct 12 at 1245-1305 enjoying nice music from AIR Burmese service, poor-fair, via Bengaluru, and better than 15105 BB.

BTW, don`t you believe the MYANMAR heading for a previous log of this in Oct NASWA Journal: my quick correxion didn`t make it. The editor also made some strange “correxions“ to my other logs such as the next one on 15105, “R. Pyranga“ (trying for Pyongyang?) instead of Voice of Korea (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 680, Oct 12 at 1211 UT, timecheck for 6:12, phone numbers; 1212 now it`s “6:14“ so the studio clock must be a sesquiminute fast; then guy on the phone with detailed “estado del tiempo“ weather forecast for the entire nation; must have mentioned every state, until 1220 finally gets to “nuestra región del Pacífico norte“, outro as named Rodríguez; 1221 “desde Guasave, Sinaloa, Noticias en Punto — Multimedios“. Then on to a report on “estado de fresas“ — strawberries?? They are measured in cubic meters, “almacenados“ with impressive flow rates — oh, it`s about *presas* = dams and their storage and release capacity, etc. at 1223. Cantú:
680 XEORO La Mera Jefa + FM 93.7 Guasave, Sinaloa 1,000 500

** MEXICO. 700, Oct 12 at 1225 UT, choral NA is playing at odd time; 1226 bit of a song about Chihuahua and Parral, then ID for “XEGD, La Poderosa“, and also FM on 90.3, “sistema combo“; full name of city “Hidalgo del Parral“ is rarely heard. Hidalgo means noble or aristocrat, but probably derived here from name of an historical figure. This station habitually gets off to a rough start in the mornings, with dead air, hum, variable sign-ons, etc. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 780, Oct 12 at 1206 UT, full ID for “La Poderosa“, “25 años sirviendo a la región“, XESFT, also FM 103.7, “Grupo Radiorama, la cadena que une a México“, then live show about Tamaulipas. Cantú:
780 XESFT La Triple T + FM 103.7 San Fernando, Tamps. 5,000 1,000
Did not hear the “Triple T“ slogan mentioned, but maybe missed it. This with KSPI Stillwater OK completely nulled, and it`s too late for WBBM to be a problem (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 810, Oct 12 at 1228 UT, rough hum loops NE/SW, overcome at *1229 by WHB KC as it pops onto day power and pattern, but can still hear the hum for a while. Only two XEs in the NW part of the country:
810 XESB Radio Mexicana +FM 94.9 Hidalgo del Parral, Chih. 1,000 1,000
810 XERSV Tribuna Radio          Cd. Obregón, Son.         5,000 D
per Cantú, so XESB is most likely. Altho KXOI, Crane (Odessa) TX is on the way with Spanish religion (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 900, Oct 12 at 1202 UT, federal PSAs, ID only as “900“, 1203 teléfonos en cabina 83-77-97-73 y 83-79-88-39 for call-ins to live show from Iglesia de — Impacto. Googling on Mexican phone numbers is usually unproductive and so are these, but there is an Iglesia de Alto Impacto of the Disciples of Christ in Monterrey NL, as I already strongly suspect this is XEOK, OK?

You might think would go to network HQ in the DF, but it`s axually XEOK`s own page, and displays the two phone numbers at the bottom, except 83-77-95-73 instead of the -97- I must have miscopied.

(Why didn`t USA just go to 8-digit local phone numbers, immediately dekamating the availabilities, rather than messing with overlaying more and more area codes, requiring 10-digit dialing??)

Beware: website autolaunches audio whether wanted or not. Cantú:
900 XEOK OK 900 AM Monterrey, N.L. 10,000 2,500

** U S A [non]. 12075, Sat Oct 12 at 1310, jazz hour from VOA neatly ensconced between RA country music on 12065 & 12085. Soon confirmed as such by // much better 7575, but nothing on 12150 where we used to hear it. Aoki and HFCC still show Sat & Sun 13-14: 12150 from Tinang, 12075 from TINIAN, and 7575 THAILAND (and one more: 9510 Tinang) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5830, Oct 12 at 1146, WTWW-1 is missing, nor on day frequency 9479; but WTWW-2 is active on 5085, and WWCR is inbooming on 5935. 1308 check: still no 9479 or 5830, but 9930 WTWW-2 is on with BS, and 12105 WTWW-3 is on in Russian; 1354 still no 9479 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
