Glenn Hauser logs April 2, 2014

** BANGLADESH. 15505, April 2 at *1355:05 carrier on from BB, but very weak; 1359 maybe IS starts, but can`t detect mistimesignal, if any, before or after 1400 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL [non]. 5999.6, April 2 at 0107 check, no het from RNB for a change against 6000.0 RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. One Firedrake audible among the jamming frequencies:
13795, April 2 at 1329, Firedrake fair, mixed with CNR1 jamming. Target is RFA in Tibetan via Kuwait

Rest are CNR1 jamming only:
13830, April 2 at 1329, CNR1 jammer, poor-fair // 13795
15115, 15195, 15265, April 2 at 1337, usual inband CNR1 jammers, VG
15570, April 2 at 1339, CNR1 jammer, poor also with noise, VOT het lo
16100, April 2 at 1337, CNR1 jammer, good; none in 12s, 14s, 17s, 18s
16300, April 2 at 1339, CNR1 jammer, very good

17740, April 2 at 1416, CNR1 jammer, good with CCI. Aoki shows target is VOA Tibetan via Thailand, presumably here every day now rather than on 7 different frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [non]. 9570, April 2 at 1324, CRI via CUBA with usual hum and lowered modulation, bilingual `China Drive`, still here rather than 13590 as in HFCC for A-14 at 12-14, a rare change pending? Likewise, CRI English at 1400 is still on 13740 rather than listed 15535 for 14-16. May take a while to get the attention of the operators in Cuba; or possibly waiting until more summery (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN. 13880, April 2 at 1334, very poor signal with talk, not CNR1. Aoki shows it`s now VIRI in Dari at 0820-1420, 250 kW, 84 degrees from Ahwaz and the farthest-up signal on the 13 MHz band; below the “Sound of Hope band“ above 13900, that is (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN [non]. 5985, April 2 at 0423 check, nothing from the alleged new NHK Spanish relay via WRMI at 0400-0430, supposed to have started March 30. First time I`ve looked for it; was it ever on? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 5985, April 2 at 1335, very poor signal, presumably JSR, Shiokaze from Japan, which Ron Howard says moved here March 30 after only 6 days on 5910 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH. 15575, Wednesday April 2 at 1343, KBSWR with `Sounds of Korea`, this week songs about spring; fair with flutter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, April 2 at 0105, R. Chaski carrier along with pulse jamming from the evil Cubans; Urubamba quits at 0107:06.5* which is 5.5 seconds later than yesterday. It`s now ahead of my steetlight from *0108, igniting with a minor RF burst and gradually fading on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TIBET [non]. 15525, April 2 at 1358, open carrier from VOT via MADAGASCAR, so again starting out here; but I was giving them too much credit for avoiding Iran on 15520, because at 1412 recheck, VOT has shifted to 15520, making fast SAH with what`s left of VIRI, which stops at 1421:11* leaving VOT clear; meanwhile, don`t hear any CNR1 jamming on or nearby (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7506.6, April 2 at 0106, WRNO still off, not that anyone really cares (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9370 & 3185, April 2 at 0104, WWRB is still running two transmitters here with Brother Scare, and zero transmitters on 3195 or 5050 which used to be its Global One service with a variety of programming.
Same situation at 0312 recheck. This also bodes ill for WORLD OF RADIO, which had been scheduled on the latter UT Fridays at 0330v. What`s going on? You might think
would have the answer on the homepage with “Station News“ dated today, April 2, 2014 —- but that`s an autodater, really just a generic shortwave business plea (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Old bookmarx still go to the B-13 schedule of WRMI, but now the A-14 is in a new color-coded format here:
Among other things, it now shows 9495 at 00-01 as Family Radio instead of RMI programming, so presumably no more DX programs such as WORLD OF RADIO, UT Sundays at 0030.

New 9955 program schedule, mislabeled B-13 but from March 30, is here:
showing no changes for WOR: Thu 0330 & 1230, Tue 1100, Wed 1300; and confirmed on VG NW signal Wed April 2 at 1321 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also JAPAN [non]

This report dispatched at 1620 UT April 2
