Glenn Hauser logs July 31, 2014

** AUSTRALIA. 13630, 15240, 15300, July 31 at 0521, R. Australia is missing from all three, certainly off the air, and causing apprehension since RA itself is threatened; as John Figliozzi in NY noted earlier all frequencies missing at 0230 and 0500. However, they were back on by 0550, says Steve Luce in TX, about a dekaminute after I quit monitoring; and also heard here on usual 9475, 9580, 12065 before 1300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11720, 11750, 11810, 11840, July 31 at 0519, distorted spurs from 11780 RNA are still audible, the closer ones louder (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9810-9830, July 31 at 1237, buzz field coming out of the weak 9820 RHC transmitter, likely the same one centered on 9810 in the evenings.

9550, July 31 at 1245, no signal from RHC, just CRI in Vietnamese with a Chinese lesson. Has the schedule at
been updated to remove this 11-13 transmission to “Buenos Aires“? Of course not! Nor any of the other recent changes; and in fact it still displays long-outdated info such as 9830 instead of 9820 in the mornings. BTW, from the homepage the black bar at the top containing linx to other pages such as frecuencias under interesantes, is visible and usable only in Firefox, not IE (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EGYPT. 13850, July 31 at 0520, yet another night with open carrier/dead air from R. Cairo, “Arabic“ to North America. Well, almost — a trace of modulation spike peaks now and then, but otherwise pleasant listening. They must have unlimited resources to burn all those megawatts for nothing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN. 15530, July 31 at 0521-0523* IRIB IS, poor with flutter, after the semihour Russian service via Sirjan; 15430, July 31 at 0522 IRIB IS here too, 0523 NA, poor signal as Spanish via Kamalabad is about to open.

13785, July 31 at 1258, 1324, 1351 chex, VIRI 9-hour Arabic service southward from Kamalabad suffers from a carrier on hi side making a wavering het, partly matching G4 on my keyboard = 394 Hz. But there`s another pitch, so the carrier may have its own tone modulation. Is someone really jamming this service, or is Iran jamming itself with a second transmitter off-frequency? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1210, July 31 at 0540 UT, good signal with country music, no doubt KGYN Guymon out of whack again on day pattern, failing to protect Philadelphia. When properly on night pattern, it`s barely audible here. Also noticed this the past couple of nights (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also USA: 1640, WTNI

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1732 monitoring: confirmed first airing on WRMI 9955, UT Thursday July 31 at 0330; fair signal with some jamming, and some hum. Also confirmed July 31 at 1230 on WRMI 9955, this time above CCI from France in Chinese via Taiwan, which is close enough in frequency to produce a SAH rather than a LAH. Next:

Thursday 2100 on WBCQ 7490v
UT Friday 0327v on WWRB 3185 (or 5050?), and stay tuned afterwards
Saturday 0630 & 1430 on Hamburger Lokalradio 7265-CUSB
UT Sunday 0030 on WRMI 9495 [probably previous edition 1731] UT Sunday 0131 on KVOH 9975
UT Monday 0259v on Area 51 via WBCQ 5110v-CUSB
Monday 2100 on WRMI 15770 [? but missing last week] Tuesday 1100 on WRMI 9955
Wednesday 0630 on Hamburger Lokalradio 7265-CUSB
Wednesday 1315 on WRMI 9955
Wednesday 0630 on Hamburger Lokalradio 7265-CUSB
Wednesday 2100 on WBCQ 7490v

** U S A. 12105, July 31 at 0517, WTWW-3 still on air, signal holding up to VG level, with preacher in English, probably PPP but not // 5830 WTWW-1; 5085, WTWW-2 is also on with BS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1060, July 31 at 0536 UT, open carrier/dead air from WSW/ENE, and making fast SAH with something, doubtless the perpetually off-frequency and perpetually cheating 10 kW daytimer, KIJN Farwell TX, only lacking its Spanish praise music and preaching modulation. Now how about taking a second step, turning off the transmitter at night? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1640, July 31 at 0459 UT, KZLS OK is still in dead air as for the last few hours, as noted at 0128 and 0310 (is no one paying attention at the station? May require a trip out to the remote Hennessey transmitter site). With its open carrier nulled, I hear ESPN Radio, and an ID for WTNI Biloxi MS, following IDs for two or three FM stations (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1547 UT July 31
