Glenn Hauser logs February 2-3, 2014

** AUSTRALIA. 9580, Feb 3 at 1245, no signal from RA on what is usually its best frequency, off? Tinang is propagating well enough on 9800, but not exactly in the Shepparton neighborhood. Nor is RA on 12065, second best. At 1247 it can be heard poorly on 6150, and very poorly on 6140-SINGAPORE, so maybe it`s just not propagating on higher bands, quite unusual. By 1253, 9580 is fading up with ABC news, and by 1305 back up to usual VG level with reports and discussion about the situation in Thailand; 9965 via PALAU also audible at 1344, still talking about Thailand when `Rear Vision` is supposed to be on.

Seems like RA has resumed relay of the TV newscast following summer holidays thru January. Yes, the online schedule for today shows: 1230 `Australia Network News Bulletin`; 1300-1330 `Newsline`, Australia Network`s flagship current affairs program [sic]. Australia Network = television! But maybe not for long: See this disturbing report via Rich Cuff on the internetradio [sic] list:

** BRAZIL. 11783+, Feb 3 at 0609, RNA is still off-frequency and still propagating well in the nightmiddle, except there`s no modulation: dead air (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 9825, Feb 3 at 1217, Firedrake jamming mixed with two talkers in Chinese, no doubt including target VOA Chinese via Saipan.

11635, Feb 3 at 1220, Firedrake mixed with maybe only one Chinese speaker which could either be more jamming from CNR1 or target, VOA Chinese via Thailand (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9155, Feb 3 at 1251, RHC with fair signal here // and synchronized with 9850, but missing from 9550, an absence first noted at 1218, still gone at 1245, and assumed to be totally off. Another example that when an RHC frequency is missing, one must search out of band for a possible substitute, no doubt a mixup with a known spy-numbers frequency used by the shared transmitter; 9155 is supposed to be numbering only at 1000-1055 four days a week including Mondays, per Aoki. Recheck at 1341, still RHC on 9155, now up to VG level with `Gaceta Cultural`, but by 1352 it`s off and 9550 is finally on, a few minutes before it`s scheduled to close anyway, as the slopperator at RadioCuba must have finally noticed he forgot to QSY it between 1055 and 1200. Oops (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** FRANCE. 7390, Feb 3 at 0606, RFI in French with heavy SAH and hum; usual assumption of double transmission from Issoudun (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 9775, Feb 3 at 1341, R. Free Chosun carrier from Radio Veritas Asia, Palauig, PHILIPPINES site is already on, and 1343 cutting on music prélude, transmitter off and back on to stay with unknown love song by YL we don`t often get to hear, 1352 on to perpetual YM love song “For the long run“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 700, Feb 3 at 1314 UT, rustic song in non-Spanish with frequency to itself; still in at 1329 UT just before sunrise here but fading: presumed usual XEETCH, Etchojoa, Sonora, La Voz de los Tres Rios which broadcasts in three indigenous languages (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 6185, Feb 3 at 0604, XEPPM is again still modulating Spanishly past nominal 0600*, ACI from Brasil (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 11770-, Feb 2 at 2145, weak music and talk in splash from 11775 Antigua. Weak het audible. Once the FRG-7 BFO is zeroed on 770 from The Metroplex, adding 11 MHz finds a pitch of Eb3 below middle C, i.e. 156 Hz, while without BFO the het I am hearing is G above middle C, i.e. 392 Hz. Possibly a local device is confusing the matter, but Wolfgang Büschel has been reporting V. of Nigeria here, presumably in Hausa during this hour; measured a month ago at 11769.872. Thorsten Hallman says this and other Hausa transmissions off-frequency are via the Abuja site: “7254.9 *0728-0800*, 9689.9 *08-09*, 9689.9 *20-21*, 11769.9 *21-22*“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 5110v-CUSB, Monday Feb 3 at 0610, WBCQ is still BSing here, contrary to Larry Will`s assumption that his stint on this frequency was over. Hardly necessary, as also heard now on // but never synchronized 3185 WWRB, 5085 WTWW, 5890 WWCR, 7490 WHRI, 9495 & 9840 & 9955 WRMI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1706 monitoring: confirmed on Area 51 webcast, UT Monday Feb 3 at 0400, and presumably also on unchecked WBCQ 5110v-CUSB. Next: Tuesday 1200 & Wednesday 1400 on WRMI 9955; Wednesday 0730 & 1530 on HLR 7265-CUSB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1140, Feb 3 at 1302 UT, Mexican music interrupted by “KLTK, Radio Las Américas“ ID with the letters pronounced in English, right back to music; briefly mixed with another SS talking; 1305 UT, KLTK with a “dos frecuencias“ canned ID for “##80 y 1140 AM“. I still think it`s 1380, i.e. station with same slogan, KMUS Tulsa that they are saying, but fade/distortion makes it hard to be certain it`s not 680 which sounds about the same. Quick check of 1380 here finds unID in English, in heavy splash from local 1390 KCRC. Back to 1140: at 1317 UT, another “dos frecuencias“ ID this time giving 11-40 first. I keep listening past 1331 UT sunrise, but KLTK is losing out to KRMP OKC even when nulled. So no luck today on 1140 Kansas City, whether KCXL Liberty MO is still English or Spanish. KTLK`s slogan is not named after the Americas, but after a frequently-advertising Arkansas supermarket named after the Americas; COL tiny Centerton (Glenn Hauser,

UNIDENTIFIED. TP carrier search Feb 3: JBA on 774 at 1254, 594 at 1255, 747 at 1256, all likely NHK. Today`s LSR is 1331 UT, precessing about one minute earlier per day (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1140, Feb 3 at 1405 UT, checking out the Spanish stations, some Mexican music is still audible, vs an ID in English sounding like KCNC. I wonder if that could have been KNAB Burlington CO with a weather or news report out of channel “4“, Denver? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
