Glenn Hauser logs March 30, 2014

** ALGERIA [non]. 11985, March 30 at 0606, Qur`an, fair with flutter: A-14 HFCC shows it`s RTA via FRANCE at 06-07 only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [and non]. CNR1 jamming on a number of new frequencies tnx to A-14 schedules of victims, March 30 during the 13 UT hour with nice music on traditional plucked instrument, which makes the jamming no less contemptible. No thoro out-of-band scan yet, but plenty in-band:

15565, CNR1 jammer, good at 1310 March 30, VOT het on hi side
15545, CNR1 jammer, good at 1310 March 30, VOT het on lo side
15265, CNR1 jammer, good at 1310 March 30, some rumble but no het
15195, CNR1 jammer, good at 1311 March 30, in the clear
15115, CNR1 jammer, good at 1311 March 30, Chinese CCI from victim
11805, CNR1 jammer, very good at 1336 March 30, but with victim CCI
11785, CNR1 jammer, very good at 1336 March 30 announcement, more mx
 7445, 7385, 7365, 7310, all CNR1 jammers fair at 1342 March 30

In next hour vs Voice of Tibet:
15560, CNR1 jammer, fair at 1420 March 30; no het heard
15520, CNR1 jammer, poor at 1420 March 30, under V. of Tibet, still here via MADAGASCAR, tho missing from HFCC A-14 just as in B-13 from this or any nearby frequency. Jamming stops at 1420 as the ChiCom check whether VOT has shifted as it often does, then resumes at 1421 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [non]. 13605, March 30 at 1303, surprise new frequency for R. Martí, news about Calle 8, Maduro, Lombardi, Buenos Aires; 1305 outro Martí-Noticias, 9:05 TC. Ex-13820, where wall-of-noise jamming against nothing remains at 1317 check. 13605 would not be a surprise had we consulted HFCC, where A-14 GB Spanish times, obviously Martí but not specified as OCB are:
 5980 07-10
 6030 00-12
 7365 00-03
 7405 03-07, 12-14
 9565 20-24
 9805 10-13
11930 14-24
13605 13-20
Frequencies on at 03-09 still take a break on Mondays.

Before compiling this, I was hunting around for a second frequency to go with 13605 — no 15330 nor jamming; no 11845 – but still Cuban pulse jamming marker at 1307 despite absence for years; 11930 with wall of noise jamming, but no trace of RM before 1400; finally found it on 7405 as late as 1341 over the jamming; and at 1423 barely audible on 11930 under the WONJ, // 13605 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDIA. 13710, March 30 at 1332, AIR GOS in English with news, poor with flutter, but no CCI now; zero on 11620, and // 9690 is detectable underneath WRMI with BS. At 1423 recheck, 13710 now has CCI from CRI Kashgar in English at 14-15. While the ChiCom are to blame, if AIR had any management sense, they would make their frequencies flexible and get away from the CCCCI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA. 9526-, March 30 at 1306, VOI English is finally clear of QRM as the 9530 China Radio War has moved elsewhere as usual in A-seasons. Fair signal, but undermodulated, insufficient. I can hear enough to tell that they are *still* announcing three imaginary frequencies, “15150, 9525, 11785“. There remains a weak signal from something on 9530 causing a 4+kHz het, but not a problem. UAE is registered in Arabic until 1330, but many of those are wooden in HFCC. Also as usual in A-seasons, VOI`s next hour in Indonesian is ruined by heavy het from much stronger CRI in Russian USward on proper 9525.0, checked at 1425 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 9775, March 30 at 1340, big open carrier is already on with some hum, from RVA Palauig, PHILIPPINES site, prior to R. Free Chosun at 1400, so no change for A-14. Finally at 1353:45, the usual music prélude cuts on, but intermittent audio for most of a minute, finally solidifying as a love solo becomes a duet, sounding like Andrea Bocelli responding to Sarah Brightman, etc. etc. Now no longer neighbored by VOA Korean on 9800 via Philippines, which has ascended to 15780 ex-15775 in A-13 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 6170, March 30 at 1344, RNZI fair with music on habitual A-season channel ex-5950 in B-seasons from 1259. Now the place to catch `Mailbox` alternate Mondays at 1330, but will be more and more problematic with more daylight, earlier sunrises for the next trimonth (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** RUSSIA. 13805, March 30 at 1304, VP signal in English, presumably our last best hope for hearing Voice of Russia before its demise. Fits usual style, but too poor to copy much, being from Irkutsk toward the south. Hardly any improvement at further chex during this, the only hour it is scheduled, 13-14 until QRT of VOR on SW as of April 1. So they have gone ahead and implemented the planned A-14 schedule, even if only for two days. Or three? Does “April 1“ mean that`s the last day it`s on, or the first day it`s gone? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 7365, March 30 at 0613, Brother Scare on new frequency, missing from 7490, so this is WHRI; unfortunately (ha2) overtime Cuban pulse jamming is underneath since 7365 is also a R. Martí frequency, at 00-03. HFCC A-14 shows TOM only for registrations with MBR and SPC, not US stations, why?

WHR website now shows these times for Overcomer Ministries (plural):
Angel 1: 18-21 M-F 17610
Angel 2: 06-08 7365, 10-12 11565, 16-18 9840; 20-21 M-F 9840
Angel 6: 16-19 17705
Also on Angels 3, 4 & 5 Palau at various times on 9930, 15680, and 9955, the latter still not to be confused with the BS from WRMI. (However, Ivo Ivanov says at 07-11, 9955 has shifted to 9965 from WHRI Angel 5; while it`s really T8WH Palau).

15770, fair March 30 at 1308, another new frequency for BS and also past 1400. Not WHRI, so likely WRMI, which still hasn`t posted an A-14 schedule at
but HFCC shows 15770 as “YFR“ at 13-21

** TAIWAN [non]. 13655, checking for the publicized latest new Sunday-only frequency for PCJ Radio International via SRI LANKA. NO sign of a signal, March 30 at 1332, 1352 nor several rechex during following hour. Hard to believe it`s even on the air; while India is making it on 13710. Maybe all the signal is going eastward at right angle to us. Nothing on ex-11835 either (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** THAILAND. 9390, March 30 at 1252, R. Thailand, fair with flutter, M&W with news about plane search; so HSK9 is staying on same B-13 frequency for this broadcast. Extracted from HFCC A-14, the entire R. Thailand English schedule shows even more 9390:
1230-1300, 1400-1430, 1900-2000, 2030-2045 all on 9390
0000-0030, 0030-0100, 0200-0230 on NEW 15590 – to North America, East/West/East respectively
0530-0600 17640 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY [and non]. TRT keeps to B-13 scheduling on the first day of A-14, March 30, causing a collision:

9700, March 30 at 0611, RRI Romania in German, as scheduled here for A-14, clashing with TRT Turkish service, slightly different frequencies causing a rumble. TRT B-13 was on 9700 at 05-07, supposed to shift to 11980 at 04-06 for A-14.

17755, March 30 at 1314, VOT in German, 1315 “Stimme dur Türkei“ ID, as TRT is still running B-13 times and frequencies in A-14! German is now supposed to be at 1130-1225 on 13760; maybe tomorrow? Fortunately this one does not collide with something else on 17755. As expected, no sign of English yet on 15450 until 1325 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 15780, March 30 at 1308, VOA Korean service with song, VG signal on A-14 schedule, ex-9800, 21 degrees from Tinang, PHILIPPINES so also USward. Previous A`s have been on 15775, now shifted up to here at 12-15 to avoid being Overcome by 15770 WRMI. 1346 announcement in Korean, more music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12105, March 30 at 1337 and 1422 chex, WTWW-3 is missing, while 1 & 2 are on 9475, 9930 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15610, March 30 at 1419, zero signal from WEWN English, but 12050 Spanish is on. 15610 still scheduled in A-14 at 13-24, so probably just another breakdown rather than QSY (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
