Glenn Hauser logs November 1-2, 2013

** CHINA. 7435, Nov 2 at 1359, prélude music, 1400 CRI opening Russian, very good signal. I was looking for the Radio Exterior de España IS, which whenever checked the past several B-seasons, would air by mistake at 1358-1400 on 7435 and 7220 preceding the CRI Nepali hour via Kunming, both always weak but enough to recognize REE IS.

Maybe it is still on 7435, but in B-13, CRI is scheduled to collide with itself, in Russian also from 1400 via another site SZG, 500 kW at 37 degrees, also USward. No wonder I am hearing that instead of REE/Kunming/Nepali. Next chance must check 7220 at 1358, as there is no collision scheduled there, with Vietnam conveniently in a sesquihour break. This mixed-up built-in switching-error is/was presumably connected with the REE Spanish relay via Beijing 11910 which was and is still scheduled to end at 1400, but unreheard lately.

17495, fair at 0154 Nov 2 with song; Aoki shows CRI in Amoy, not a jammer. HFCC shows 193 degrees from Beijing site (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [and non]. Firedrake [non] CNR1 jamming before 0200 UT Nov 2:

17890, poor at 0153 — HFCC shows NOT jamming, just CNR1 Beijing at 0130-1100; standard remark about genuine CNR1 vs jamming outlets

17805, poor at 0153 with echo. HFCC target here is IBB in “Uly“ via Tinian this hour only; Aoki has a better abbr. for Uighur: Uyg

17730, poor at 0154 with LAH from target, i.e. Ulaanbataar off-frequency relay of RFA Tibetan, not in HFCC so it`s deniable by Mongolia, but in Aoki at 01-03

Before 1300 UT Nov 2:
7390 at 1257 with 1 kHz tone, 1258 open carrier; at 1300, 5+1 timesignal, opening CNR1 Mandarin blocking “Welcome to the Voice of America — in Cantonese“, as scheduled per Aoki, *7390 via Tinang, PHILIPPINES at 1300-1500 daily

After 1300 UT Nov 2:
15510, fair at 1308, unusual CNR1 spot, vs what? Aoki: *BBC Uzbek via Thailand during this semihour only.

After 1400 UT Nov 2, finally some real FIREDRAKE again!!! Never have I been so pleased to hear jamming; maybe not employing it every day?

6145, good at 1401 past 1423 as it`s weakening into daytime here; no CCI audible, but target must be per Aoki: R. Taiwan International at 1400-1800 via Paochung.

Eike Bierwirth in Wiesbaden, Germany also reports it: “Chinese Firedrake jamming is currently going on against RFA on 9355 (fair), 5865 (weak) and 9455 (fair-strong). 2 Nov 2013, 2015 UT“
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 11760, Nov 1 at 1954, no signal from the first RHC English hour of the day, 19-20 UT. It will probably shift to 20-21, but should not do so until DST is over Nov 3. Could it be a blackout? ANGUILLA is also absent from 11775, but probably coincidental.

At this time the only significant signals on 25m are 11670 India, poor with flutter, 11930 R. Martí, very poor; and nearby US stations with usual VG signals: 12160 WWCR, 12105 WTWW, 12050 WEWN; on 31m just the four Tennesseeans on 9980, 9930, 9479, all VG and 9370 WWRB weak (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5040, Nov 1 at 2330, RHC English is still suffering bad rumble on the modulation and wobble on the carrier, like 24 hours earlier, and nothing has been done about it. Still really rumbling and wobbling in Spanish at 0135 check — but at 0545 in English now it`s recovered; fixed, or switched to a different transmitter? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also EGYPT

** CUBA [and non]. Typo in this item from previous report: it`s 5980, not 5890, altho VOA Spanish and jamming had been there previously. (Why isn`t my spellchecker smart enough to catch such an error??)

5980, Nov 1 at 1256, the DentroCuban Jamming Command has finally caught up with R. Martí which extended another hour on this frequency for B-13, and enjoyed it jamming-free for a few days. Perhaps Arnie read my reports, which he will never admit. Now RM is about level with the jam, still readable. After 1300, 7405 is still on and well atop the jamming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 9490, Nov 2 at 0124, wall-of-noise jamming and Radio República barely audible underneath it; unlike before 0100 when no RR and jamming was only lite pulsing, so it does appear that RR shifted one hour later already, 01-03 instead of 00-02, in accordance with standard time in FRANCE which is irrelevant in Cuba and the USA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** DJIBOUTI. See UNIDENTIFIED

** EGYPT. 11760, Nov 2 at 0117, RHC Spanish mixed with humbuzz, but guess what, I am not going to blame RHC on this one, since we know that R. Cairo has also registered 11760 to Mexico, Central America, and Caribbean in Arabic and Spanish at 2330-0200, 250 kW, 286 degrees from Abis; and the humbuzz seemed to be fading independently of RHC. (The previous panoply of spurs centered on 11760, however, were so strong that I am still blaming RHC for those) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EQUATORIAL GUINEA [and non]. 15190, Nov 1 at 1941, poor signal with flutter, hymn about Christ the Savior, so R. Africa; meanwhile, VON DRM noise was blasting around 15120 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA. 9526-, Nov 2 at 1255, VOI is missing for the fourth day in a row (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 9775, Nov 2 after 1400, good steady signal from R. Free Chosun again; I still can`t believe this is a trans-polar signal from TAJIKISTAN as alleged in Aoki. Here`s my previous 3-minute recording of its opening, Nov 1 at 1400 before I had IDed it:http://www.w4uvh.net/RFChosun9775.rm
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KUWAIT. 15540, Nov 1 at 1951 I detect a JBA carrier presumably still from R. Kuwait which insists on staying here yearound for the 18-21 English broadcast, even in the winter when it runs until local midnight, long after the 19m band has dropped out on most occasions, and probably does not even reach Europe (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 5950, Nov 2 at 1259, RNZI Bellbird IS is back on proper B-13 frequency after reverting to A-13`s 6170 yesterday at this time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NICARAGUA [non?]. 8989-USB, Nov 1 at 2324, predicador audible in Spanish but very poorly (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950.0-AM, Nov 2 at 0155, poor signal from pirate with music, 0157 QRM from a Spanish 2-way contact on USB, “adelante, comandante“, “afirmativo“ perfectly tuned to the carrier on 6950. This thread says the pirate was XFM:http://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,13586.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA [and non]. 7220, Nov 2 at 0540, “Ransom House Blues“ song sounds sort of like Tom Jones, but searching on the title leads nowhere despite hearing what I thought was that sung several times. RRI Radio Actualitatsi as IDed at 0543, HS program 1 relay, certainly presents some interesting music, beyond mere Romanian. CCI from CRI English via ALBANIA is barely audible underneath at pauses (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SERBIA [non]. 6190, Nov 2 at 0133, still zero signal from IRS via BOSNIA-HERZEGOVINA, despite own website claiming that the N American service still exists (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN [and non]. 15385, Nov 1 at 1943, something in Spanish — could KJES be back on the frequency they keep registering with FCC and HFCC, but not heard since May 30, 2012?

No! It`s Castilian and a frequency REE has used earlier in the day; sounds like same interview of an OM by a YL about the environment as heard on 17850 but not //. Finally with the G8 second receiver to the DX-398 on the porch, I catch a keyword, and time 17850 as running 67 seconds *behind* 15385.

17850 is the new B-13 frequency from Noblejas for Central America to replace Cariari. 17850 was previously a Cariari frequency for North America until that was deleted last year. They were always a satellite delay+ of a few seconds behind Noblejas, but now with both from Noblejas, the 67 second delay can only be explained as separate playouts for different target areas.

The last log of KJES on 15385 I can find in the DXLD archive was May 30, 2012, altho it may have continued a bit longer — one never knows which date one does not bother to log it will turn out to be the final one!

Yes, KJES is still imaginary on 15385 in FCC B-13 now at:http://transition.fcc.gov/ib/sand/neg/hf_web/B13FCC01.TXT
15385   1900 2000  KJES  50    270  55,58,59 1234567   271013 300314
15385   2000 2100  KJES  50    100  11       1234567   271013 300314

And consequently same in HFCC. (If it were on the air during this Week of Confusion, it would be one UT hour earlier than the above; note that the first hour in English was due west for all of Australia by CIRAF, not NZ, [and for the rest of their summer would be at 6-7 am AEST; 3-4 am WAT], but the Spanish hour at 100 degrees would now collide with Spain in Central America.)

Tnx to FCC, and HFCC, other lists such as current B-13 Aoki still include it, ignoring my reports that it is GONE from this frequency:
15385 1800-1900 USA KJES VADO Eng Vado        1-7 
15385 1900-2000 USA KJES VADO Spa Vado        1-7 

While we`re at it, Aoki shows this for REE on 15385:
15385 1425-1455 E   R.EXTERIOR DE ESPANA     Sef Noblejas    2   
15385 1500-1700 E   R.EXTERIOR DE ESPANA     Spa Noblejas    23456
15385 1900-2000 E   R.EXTERIOR DE ESPANA     Por Noblejas    [daily]

But today it was certainly in Castilian, not Portuguese! HFCC B-13 agrees with me that REE at 19-20 is in Spanish, but omits the Monday Sephardic at 1425-1455, which stays on 15385 yearound.

For the record, here are some KJES reports from *2012y* in the DXLD archive:

“15385+, March 15 [2012] at 1835, KJES has VG S9+22 signal, but just
barely modulated, with hum, catechisms in English. Slightly on the hi
side, but within FCC`s too-lax tolerance (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST 12-12)“

“15385.1, KJES Vado NM; 1856-1902+, 9-May [2012]; English hymn at tune-in to YL English ID at 1859:35 to VYL/Spanish ID at 1900 & into Spanish hymn. S9-10, hummy & vweak co-channel audio (nothing else on the lists — maybe a studio thing, or robo-kids in the back not paying attention). (Harold Frodge, Midland MI, USA, Drake R8B + 85 ft. RW &
180 ft. center-fed RW, All logged by my ears, on my receiver, in real
time! DX LISTENING DIGEST)“

“15385, May 13 at 1905 [2012], undermodulated Spanish, hum and fades on fair signal, KJES active today, and Spain is staying on 15110 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST 12-20)“

“15385+, May 30 [2012] at 1927 dead air, but at 1933 modulating poorly with man talking. KJES is scheduled at 18-20 on a different azimuth each hour. Poor signal today but slightly on the hi side compared to other 19m signals (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST 12-22)

“Missing stations department: 11715v, no signal at all from KJES, June 22 [2012] at 1312, 1410, 1450 chex, including the hour when they have supposedly rotated the LP to send max signal right across Oklahoma, 70 degrees at 13-14. Nor has it been heard lately on 15385v during the 18-20 UT broadcast. Need to check the third scheduled frequency, 7555 at 0100-0230. 15385, June 22 at 1916, still no trace of KJES; nor on 7555 at 0142 June 23 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST 12-26)“

“15385, KJES, not heard in many weeks at various afternoon bandscans during the time it is scheduled, 18-20 UT. It was never very
reliable, but has anyone heard it at all? Still shows up sometimes on
11715 in the 13-16 UT period (Glenn Hauser, OK, September 3 [2012], DX
LISTENING DIGEST)“

“11715.0, Sept 4 [2012] at 1435, KJES with adult in English verses, quite undermodulated. I frequently scan the 19m band sometime between 18 and 20 when KJES is scheduled on 15385, but haven`t heard it there for weeks; has anyone? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST 12-36)“

“15385, Oct 20 [2012] at 1835 check, no sign of KJES NM for its
scheduled 18-20 UT broadcast; still hear it most of the time in the
mornings on 11715, evenings on 7555 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST 12-43)“

** SRI LANKA [and non]. 11905, Nov 2 at 0115, SLBC VG with S Asian song, probably Hindi, about the best I have heard it, and not failing to modulate tonight. I must have just missed the sign-on.

No more fun on 11985 from India; yet to find out what has replaced that for B-13; Aoki B-13 still shows it for 0045-0115 Sinhala, presumably just held over from A-13 info. As of Nov 2, AIR has not updated their own sked beyond A-13 athttp://allindiaradio.gov.in/Profile/Radio%20Network/Pages/default.aspx
which Jose Jacob has pointed out, and I suppose his own VU2JOS site has not yet either. And of course, not in HFCC either (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U K [non]. 13725, Nov 2 at 0121, BBCWS English, fair with flutter, better than 15755 and better still than 15335. Both 13725 and 15755 are 250 kW, 25 degrees from Thailand but with different antennas per HFCC: a 156 on 13725, and a 216 on 15755.

5875, Nov 2 at 1243, BBCWS with report about NASA and Mars, so THAILAND relay stays on 5875 yet another day instead of 5840 as on last Friday and previous Fridays during A-13 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7465, UT Sat Nov 2 at 0132, VOA in not-so-special English, about Bruce Springsteen. This is the new frequency, ex-9825, for VOA`s only English broadcast to the Americas (excepting Radiograms), UT Tue-Sat, which is worth putting on only one Greenville frequency while several more transmitters must be idle. Tony Ashar found the complete new B-13 VOA English schedule including all the other transmissions (minus sites, certainly all others abroad) for what is now called:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1693 monitoring: confirmed on Area 51 via WBCQ 5110v-CUSB, UT Saturday Nov 2 starting at 0201:15, after some amusement with a song called “Money“, I assume, considering that was the only word in the lyrix.

Axually, I had just been listening to the strange unID signal on 4710-LSB, so 5110 also came up in LSB mode — and I could hear some modulation at 0200 past 0201 with WOR, but much louder modulation on USB: reconfirming that WBCQ`s LSB is not totally suppressed.

Next: Saturday 2327v on WTWW-2 9930; UT Sunday 0401v on WTWW-1 5830 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. 15420-CUSB, Nov 1 at 1940, WBCQ with anapaestic androgynous preachperson from Fence Lake NM, colliding as always with BBCWS English, and making a LAH since WBCQ is somewhat off-frequency. This has been going on for years; what are their frequency managers thinking?! Here we are close to the 245 degree azimuth of WBCQ, and we still have this QRM from BBC, in B-13 as 14-15, 250 kW, 285 degrees from Seychelles, and at 15-20, 250 kW, 270 degrees from Seychelles.

They just can`t help but believe paper listings or computed coverages that the two reach entirely separate CIRAF targets, failing to turn on a radio or realize that in the real world, SW signals carry on far beyond targets, not even in the same direxion. HFCC shows WBCQ and BBC are the only stations in the world currently on 15420 at any time. It would not be that hard to find a clear frequency for both on the 19m band, but that is as far as I am going without being retained as a frequency manager who would know what he is doing.

9330-CUSB, UT Sat Nov 2 at 0126, `Allan Weiner Worldwide` is just wrapping up as I tune in, something about a pizza party until 10 o`clock at wbcq.com (?) and cut to Brother Scare // 7490. BS is not supposed to be on 9330; meanwhile 5110 was in other music.

As the signature program on WBCQ, the original live airing of AWWW gets to be on all three transmitters; otherwise, 9330 is dedicated to Good Friends Radio Network, which was on there by the time I rechecked at 0152. (However, 5110 cuts to sold time at 0100 before AWWW is usually over.) From next week with standard time, AWWW will start at 0100 UT and run to 0230v except on 5110 until 0200 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. KJES, NOT on 15385: see SPAIN [and non]

** U S A. 7730, Nov 1 at 2327, JBA carrier, presumably the new frequency from WWCR, 13845 minus 6115, replacing 6970 = 13845 minus 6875. Harold Frodge confirms hearing 7730 in MI, as he did 6970, tho I`ve not had much luck with either.

The schedule on 7730 is 21-24 UT during the Week of Confusion, then 21-01 for the rest of B-13 until DST resume in March.

7520, Nov 2 at 0129, extremely strong signal from US station has very noisy sidebands too out to +/- 15 kHz, worst around +/- 9 kHz. Is it WRHI or WWCR? WWCR-4 as scheduled during this Week of Confusion at 23-02 UT, to become 00-03 from Nov 3.

This crud collides with the crud from WRNO 7506.4+, which extends out to some 12 kHz above and below (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3195, Nov 2 at 0146, WWRB with preacher hard to understand, seemingly amateur recording with IADs, stops & starts, clix, hum surges at pauses; coughs and says he has a cold; giving www.yahwah-apostolic-ministries.org website (which I finally found by searching, since he spells Yahweh as Yahwah; the Semites are casual about vowels. Note also the essential hyphens). Seems name of show is `Truth`s Renewal`.

This page says “See when and where YAHWAH Ministries is on the radio“: http://yahwah-apostolic-ministries.org/radiobroadcasts.html
but there is NO info or link to radio stations, just audio archive!
O, there it is, only if you hover over “Truth`s Renewal“ button:
Broadcast Schedule:
Friday @ 10:00 PM (Shortwave Radio) –
WWRB Radio 3.185 AM [sic]Saturday @ 1:30 AM & Sunday @ 2:00 AM [when WWRB is not on the air]

Also plugs http://www.youtube.com/yahwahministries
And offers monthly newsletter, phone number in Philadelphia 215-2#6-6687. Phone rings and nothing further heard at 0150, when Dave comes on saying that he must have finished early, so will fill with Bible-on-tape, until Brother Arnold calls in shortly for next program.

The probably outdated Global One program schedule for “5050“ athttp://www.wwrb.org/schedule/global_1/combined.pdf
says Friday at 10-10:30 pm ET is YAHWEH [sic] Ministries. This was certainly not Truth House, the E. C. Fulcher show listed for 9-10 pm ET M-F, the hour during which I logged this.

And it`s clear from the spelling disparity as well as the lack of IDs that this is unrelated to the “Radio YHWH“ pirate that has been on 9775 and 3235; I`ve yet to catch it on the lower frequency, usually reported active at a somewhat later hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Hi Ray, Checked 9975 at 0123 UT tonight [UT Nov 2], but no KVOH, just very poor signal presumably still from CVC Tashkent. What happened? Meant to check again later, but just realized it`s 0430 and did not get back to it. Did you come on later? Still plan to be on tomorrow night? (Glenn to Ray Robinson, 0432 UT Nov 2, via DXLD)

Hi, Glenn. Yes, we were having problems with the studio to transmitter link. We eventually got on the air about an hour and 15 minutes late. We abandoned the schedule for the night, and just played music and ID’s until 0400. Our proper first night will now be tomorrow [UT Nov 3 0100-0400; but following nights with standard time at 0200-0500 UT] (Ray Robinson, KVOH, to Glenn, via DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 600, Nov 2 at 1226 UT, traffic chopper report on a Saturday morning from Iowa? WMT Cedar Rapids then plugging some show which they have just moved to KMJM 1360. Own joint ID for 600 with 95.7 FM (which is KOSY-FM per NRC), says they run an anti-Obamacare spot at the top and bottom of each hour — what a public service!! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1050, Nov 2 at 0555 UT, ad with 870- area code phone number, which better not be toll-free. Loops NW/SE, or close to that, with XEG nulled; then C2CAM, probably but not certainly from same station.

870 is most of Arkansas, not including LR and the center and not including the west. http://nanpa.com/area_code_maps/display.html?ar

The nearest 1050 station is in the center, but maybe close enough: KJBN (North) Little Rock, 1000/19/64 watts per NRC AM Log, but format REL:AC would seem to exclude C2CAM.

Yes, the only 1050 on C2CAM roster is KSIS in Sedalia/Sikeston MO; in Little Rock on some FM station (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1220, Nov 2 at 0518 UT, country music from ENE, sounds like same WSLM Salem IN as heard 24 hours earlier, suspected on day power.

Also, regarding the off-frequency het on 1220, from KMVL Madisonville TX, and/or its booster KM2XVL in Huntsville, gor this reply from Steve Luce in Houston:

“Glenn, I have checked KMVL a few times during daylight hours from a location in far NW Harris County and I don’t hear any het. Of course, I have no way of knowing if the synchro is on or not. However a few years ago I did listen to KMVL at night while driving between Madisonville and Huntsville, and heard a very long het, perhaps 5 centihertz. Will have to check next time I make a DFW trip. XEB is dominant on 1220 at night at my QTH, but sometimes I can faintly hear KMVL lurking underneath.“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. TA carrier search, Nov 2 at 0511-0516: JBA on 693, 774, 882, 891 (first one noticed, het with no BFO needed), 1053, 1062, 1179, 1422 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. TP carrier search, Nov 1 at 1248-1252 UT: JBA on 702, 738, 774, 882. 774 definitely from NW = Japan, but 702 and 738 imply NSW and Tahiti.

TP carrier search, Nov 2 at 1234-1241 UT: JBA on 567, 594, 693, 702, 747, 774, 828, 972, 1044, 1053, 1152. As usual checked 774 first and there it was looping NW, i.e. Japan. Can`t be sure all the others were from NW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1010-, Nov 2 at 0112 UT, het on the lo side. I can get a rather tight DF on it, ENE/WSW which puts it in the USA or NW Mexico. MWoffsets list has nothing but KCHJ in California, only 5.3 Hz low and this is much further than that, but a lot less than 1 kHz. No keyboard handy to measure the pitch, but heard first on caradio at 0106, so not a local device.

Het still there at 0503 check, and at 0524 I have my keyboard to find the closest pitch match: Bb below C-middle, i.e. approx. 233 Hz, which puts the carrier on approx. 1019.767. I could still hear it before sunrise around 1230, but couldn`t track it long enough to decide whether it`s east or west from here. Ideas? Besides KXEN, the 1010 stations along the likely line range from BCN, to AZ, Chihuahua, Amarillo, Independence KS, Indiana and Ohio.

We can rule out KINDependence KS; shortly after local mean noon at 1840 UT Nov 2, I can detect its carrier as the one and only daytime signal here on 1010, and is not 233 Hz low, in fact very slightly on the hi side of 1010, as compared to neighboring stations on 1020, 1000, etc. (not including KLIO ESPND Wichita 1070 which is always way off itself) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4710-LSB, Nov 2 at 0137, something very strange: loop of incomprehensible singing and wobbling, with irregular beat; by 0143 the beat has changed when I record a sample of it; I am tuning slightly up and down trying to improve clarity, to no avail:http://www.w4uvh.net/4710unid.rm
Still going at 0204. Something you might hear on the pirate band. 4710 was also the home of a never IDed JBA signal in Spanish, probably broadcast harmonic 3 x 1570 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4780, Nov 1 at 2328, very poor signal with music — yes, it`s Qur`an, with het from 4781.7 Ecuador. Probably Djibouti on late/early as heard previously with much better signal around 0100, but not every night. Next check at 0136 Nov 2, still very poor with Qur`an, gone by 0200 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6933-LSB, Nov 1 at 2325, mad mixture of music and maybe Spanish talk. Not only US pirates inhabit this band, but Mexican and other Latin Americans, which tend to be two-way (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13550, Nov 2 at 0122, very poor signal with talk mixture, vs CODAR. Smax of an overload receiver mix. Let`s see what adds up to 13550? 6165 + 7385; or 6030 + 7520; or ? Too weak to make a match altho it may have involved Brother Scare which does not apply to any of those or any of his known frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
