Glenn Hauser logs March 27-28, 2014

** AUSTRALIA. 15340, March 28 at 1259, HCJB ID in English mixing with mis-frequency announcement by RHC [see CUBA], almost equal levels; quickly tuning up to 15400, HCJB is loud & clear, signing this one off in English until 2345 Indonesian. A pity they don`t use 15400 onward from 1300, avoiding RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BANGLADESH. 15505, March 28 at 1359, BB IS is JBA, timesignal ending at 1359:49 = 11 seconds fast today (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 9665-, March 28 at 0051, Voz Missionária is almost on-frequency tonight! Just slightly below 9665, instead of 9663. With BFO I can hear it varying audibly, so there`s still hope for more wandering (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5025 & 5040, March 28 at 0537, both Rebelde in Spanish and RHC in English are on 60m, so obviously not having to share one facility at the moment. RHC is starting `Breaking the Silence` narrated by the YL with the annoying voice and style, about The Cuban Five — shouldn`t that be The Cuban Three? As now another one has been released. You`re welcome.

15340, March 28 at 1259, the clueless Cubans are still playing outdated frequency announcement claiming a bunch of them are on until 1600 UT instead of correct 1500*v since March 9. 15340 has heavy CCI from HCJB Australia, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EQUATORIAL GUINEA [non]. 9840, March 28 at 0542, Brother Scare is running a few words behind WRMI on 9955 and 7570; apparently 9840, tho also from Okeechobee is fed by different routing, via R. Africa Network in California, credited with this transmission by Jeff White (and in A-14 bumping way up to 15190 just like in daytime); contradicting WRMI`s B-13 color-coded graphic frequency schedule which continues to show 9840 in lite green as WRMI/TOM, rather than tan as RA like for the 17790 and 15190 daytime broadcasts. I`ve yet to catch a TOH ID on 9840, whether it`s from RAN or RMI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** FRANCE. 24952-USB, March 28 at 1425, F5BBD calling CQ; a few minutes later, QSY to 25949-USB for a contact. Very weak signal from:
F5BBD
DANIEL TAQUET
LE PRESBYTERE – LAVAQUERESSE
F-02450 BOUE
France
per QRZ.com – I was checking whether 11 m might be open for R. Magic Eye; see RUSSIA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH. 15575, March 28 at 1300, KBS World Radio signing on in English, good signal with flutter, 1301 news. So this should finally be a good day for reception of the N American service aimed 81 degrees toward S America? No, it isn`t; must have been anomalous as soon degrades to only fair, and poor by 1357 closing.

However, at 1314 I am barely hearing KBS // on 9570 underneath `China Drive` via CUBA, which is unusual; per Aoki, it`s 205 degrees toward Indonesia (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MARTINIQUE. 28465-USB, March 27 at 2034, FM4NB calling QRZ from Fox-Mexico-four-November-Bravo, mixing fonetik systems as so many hams do, deliberately or out of ignorance? Sounds like a YL, then co-channel contact with AE2X. Per

she has strict rules about QSLing, no e-, no LOTW, no bureau:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. Regarding the Mexican NA I heard on 1700 kHz, possibly new licensed station XEFCSM, 50/1 kW in Mérida, received this March 28:

“Estimado Sr. Hauser. He monitoreado la frecuencia de 1700 con mis receptores Radio Shack 12-472 (hasta 1700 kHz) y 20-125 (hasta 1710 kHz) a diversas horas y días y no encontrado señal alguna de cualquier emisora local en la ciudad de Mérida, Yucatán. Atte.: Ing. Civ. Israel González Ahumada, M.I.“

Nor have I heard any further signs of it, but it`s tough getting past the three US 1700 stations. Terry Krueger in FL hasn`t heard it either, but probably KKLF now Tejano (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, March 28 at 0055, JBA carrier from R. Chaski; by 0100 second carrier added from BBC/UAE, slightly different frequency making usual double-pitch het with BFO; R. Chaski goes off at 0106:38* which is 17 seconds later than another trinite previously when last checked. Will they attain 0107* this time before another reset? Stay tuned!

BTW, DXing from the porch around sunset is now usually feasible, and I note my nearest streetlight is now auto-firing up around 0103 during the Chaski-check, clear sky. Sunset was 0049 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** RUSSIA. 25900, Friday March 28 at 1446, continuous JBA carrier, perhaps from R. Magic Eye, Moskva; at 1448 some beeps signifying 2-way QRM. Had hams from France on 12m, Slovenia on 10m, weak signals but 11m at least potentially open from western Europe (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SLOVENIA. 28505.6-USB, March 28 at 1434, QRZ and CQ from S51DX, almost-American accent from, per QRZ.com:
S51DX
JANEZ CELARC
Susnikova cesta 9
1360 VRHNIKA
Slovenia

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1714 monitoring: confirmed third airing Thursday March 27 at 2100:56 on WTWW-1, 9475, excellent signal to 2130.

Also confirmed next at 0330 UT Friday March 28 on WWRB, 5050 (no 3195 any more); I was getting concerned, as tuning in early at 0318, 5050 was dead air, and the stream was silent. 0323 preacher modulation resumed, OK on 5050, but very low level on stream. 0330 interrupted for quick live ID by Dave, about 20 seconds of respectful dead air before starting WOR 1714, complete to 0359*. We still lack any outsendings on Fridays/early UT Saturdays, so next:

Sat 0730 & 1530 on Hamburger Lokalradio, 7265-CUSB
Sat 2330 on WTWW-2, 9930 (we hope, as presumably scheduled now, yet to appear since DST shift)
UT Sun 0030 on WRMI-14, 9495 (could be previous edition)
UT Sun 0401 on WTWW-1, 5830
UT Mon 0300v on Area 51 via WBCQ, 5110v-CUSB
Tue 1100 on WRMI-10, 9955
Tue 0730 & 1530 on Hamburger Lokalradio, 7265-CUSB
Wed 1300 on WRMI-11, 9955
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5110v-CUSB, UT Friday March 28 at 0104, WBCQ with another `Allan Weiner Worldwide` playback, during the “annual radio station party“ with several guests on hand; his beloved wife Jennifer had been grilling burgers, so must be from before her decease. These weekday broadcasts continue to be absent from sked, so ad-hoc?

** U S A. 7555, March 28 at 0110, KJES with responsive catechisms in Spanish, fair signal. Don`t you believe that this broadcast is in English as in HFCC, nor the imaginary listing for KJES at 1800-2000 on 15385 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, Friday March 28 at 1319, WRMI is playing some nice fill music, familiar variety of folk styles, but annoyingly cutting off one piece to start another, then 1324 starting `Words of Life Ministry` at odd time. It was supposed to air at 1300-1330 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also EQUATORIAL GUINEA [non]
