Glenn Hauser logs March 24-25, 2014

** BRAZIL. 9663.0, March 25 at 0112, way off-frequency is Voz Missionária, ID heard in passing; also carrier is wavering audibly with BFO. Sounds OK on AM (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL [and non]. 5999.6, March 25 at 0052, RNB is poor-fair but definite, // and synchronized with very good 6180, as RHC is not on, yet there is another weak signal on 6000.0 to cause a het. I suppose the sporadic `Mesa Redonda` TV simulcast from RHC is typically ending earlier now when it`s on. BTW, 6180 was atop some CCI; what would that be? Evidently CRI English via Kashgar, EAST TURKISTAN, this hour only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See CUBA

** CUBA. 6000, March 24 at 1256, RHC is poorly audible, but not after 1300, probably closing time, altho a JBA carrier remained from something. We have yet to see a new transmission schedule from RHC since the March 9 imposition of DST changes. 6000 not on March 25 at 0052, opening channel for new RNBrasil transmitter, but RHC English is on at 0120 check, with het still audible (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also BRAZIL

** CYPRUS. 9505-9533, March 25 at 0110, strong OTH radar pulses, presumed from here, seemingly in a gap amongst broadcast stations, edging Oman 9500 and Spain 9535, if not totally blocking weakies; before 0100 if on then, would have been a major problem for Romania in Spanish on 9525 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9420 // 7475 // 11645, March 25 at 0109, Helleniki Radiophonia playing Greek music for a change; that`s more like it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA. 4750, March 24 at 1255, presumed RRI Makassar, surprisingly good which means poor-fair. Tried to // 9680 Jakarta, but too much China radio war atop it; might be // but not synched (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 5910, March 24 at 1331, very poor signal smax of Shiokaze, can`t determine which Asian language, while no signal on 6135, so QSYed again? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 6185, March 24 at 0234, open carrier, dead air from XEPPM — can`t detect any modulation during prime time. At 0530, now it`s improved to just barely modulated, balalaika? Then YL in Spanish mentions “departamento de La Paz“ — Bolivia, I suppose rather than Baja California Sur which I don`t think has departments (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OMAN. 9500, March 25 at 0110, RSO with Qur`an, fair signal, at last back on proper frequency after 0000, instead of sticking to 15355 or even 15140 earlier frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, March 25 at 0051, R. Chaski with VP carrier, some audio; shortly after *0059, second carrier added from BBC UAE, slightly offset. One of them goes off about 0106:21*, i.e. Chaski, 18 seconds later than a trinite before (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN [and non]. 11780, UT Tue March 25 at 0114, REE IS is slightly stronger than very strong RNB BRAZIL; another week, another collision for the unfortunate Sephardic service for South America, ruined by incompetent frequency mis-management (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SRI LANKA. 11905, March 25 at 0114 open carrier from SLBC; music starts a few seconds before 0115, then stops, skipping time signal — no, here it comes! Three pips with final prolonged, finally ending at 0115:35, then opening in Hindi (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U K. 5975, March 24 at 0528, B-B-C- chimes, 0529 opening Hausa; new frequency? Had not noticed it before. Is // but an echo apart from 6135 and 7305 which are synchronized with each other. HFCC shows indeed 5975 only started 21 January, via Woofferton, while the other pair are ASCENSION (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 4755-USB, UT Tuesday March 25 at 0047, AF MARS net including AFF4AL, AFD4SE and AFE4TN. AFF4AL is the generic/billet call of AFA4JA, the State MARS Director (SMD) for Alabama; AFD4SE is the generic/billet call of AFA4BF in FL, Deputy Divison MARS Director (DDMD), Southeast Division; AFE4TN is the generic/blilet call for AFA4PM in TN, State Emergency Coordinator (SEC) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1713 monitoring: confirmed on Area 51 via WBCQ, 5110v-CUSB, UT Monday March 24 at 0300, also on webcast. Next: Tuesday 1100, Wednesday 1300, Thursday 0330 on WRMI 9955; Wednesday 0730 & 1530 on HLR 7265-CUSB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5050, March 24 at 0232, WWRB has made its spring move from 3195, YL preacher in progress, VG signal. Also on 5050-AM, March 25 at 0050. This should also apply to WORLD OF RADIO, UT Fridays at 0328v, but just in case, check both for a while (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, UT Monday March 24 at 0233 on WTWW-2, Ted Randall is doing his Sunday evening country-music request show, start and end times unknown. 24 hours earlier it was off the air for WORLD OF RADIO, Amateur Radio Newsline, etc.

5830 & 5085 night frequencies are still on March 24 at 1257, but at 1304 both have switched to day frequencies 9475 & 9930 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7570, March 25 at 0056, WRMI Brother Scare channel is open carrier/dead air. At 0120 I notice that all these WRMI frequencies are off the air: 5850 leaving some weak ute noise, Denmark? 7455 uncovering the constant RTTY; 7570; 9955; and 11565. Major power failure at Okeechobee, or major maintenance? 0435 check, back on the air at least are 5850, 7455, 7570, 9955 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5110v-CUSB, March 25 at 0106, WBCQ with `Allan Weiner Worldwide`, this time the most recent one from March 21, the-year-of-our-lord-2014, first day of spring, still plenty snowy in Monticello, but 80 degrees from Florida where Allan says he is running the entire operation. The WBCQ schedule for 5110
still doesn`t show *any* broadcasts on weekdays (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9265, UT Monday March 24 at 0237 I noticed that WINB is off the air already. Seems a bit early; program schedule at
was updated March 2, a week before DST began, but not since; thus all the time conversions from ET to UT are wrong, which are now 4 hours apart instead of 5. For Sunday evenings, the final program listed, appropriately, is `End Times Coming` at 10:30 pm ET / 0330 UT, which should now be 0230 — but less than 7 minutes long? I think not (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7633.5-USB, March 25 at 0058, phone patch being arranged on behalf of Bryan, 319 area code? Intermittent 2-way, did not catch any calls. At 0102 the call goes thru but reaches an automated message system, so Bryan leaves a pro-forma greeting from his plane with engine noise. Seems I have one previous log on this frequency in December, 2008, DXLD 8-125, identified as AF MARS. Don`t hear phone-patches on SW much any more by MARS or hams (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
