Glenn Hauser logs February 14-15, 2015

** BANGLADESH. 15505, Feb 15 at 1359 BB IS to mistimesignal ending at 1359:40.5, very poor signal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11747 & 11813, Feb 15 at 0653, crackling spurs from 11780.1v RNB/RNA provide only very poor signals, but they`re there and shouldn`t be at all (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammers late UT Feb 14:
13920, Feb 14 at 2329, CNR1 jammer, fair with heavy flutter
13890, Feb 14 at 2329, CNR1 jammer, fair with heavy flutter

And morning of Feb 15:
11720, Feb 15 at 1510, CNR1 jammer with giveaway sounder, fair with flutter, // 9680 at 1516. 11720 is vs RFA Tibetan via Kuwait (and followed at 16-17 by VOA Tibetan via Thailand also *jammed per Aoki)

11865, Feb 15 at 1512, CNR1 jammer with sounder, mixed with its victim which is RFA Tibetan via UAE; // 9680

9280, Feb 15 at 1518, CNR1 jammer, very good with flutter but not synchronized with 9680; vs 100-watt RFA relay via Sound of Hope

9440, Feb 15 at 1519, CNR1 jammer, good // 9680, CCI. Vs RFA Chinese via Saipan. No exhaustive OOBandscan undertaken now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** FRANCE [and non?]. 7390, Feb 15 at 0655, RFI in French with QRM from another carrier making a very fast almost rippling subaudible heterodyne. 0700 check, both are off. Next task is to monitor continuously whether they both go off at the same time or not (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9935, Feb 14 at 2337, ERTOpen good with music and not motorboating at the moment, // stronger 9420. Both not on every night.

9420, Feb 15 at 0653, good with Greek music, 9935 not on now. Reports are that new government will be reviving ERA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUYANA. 3290, Feb 15 at 0659, BBCWS IDs, timesignal one second slow past 0700, billboard `Weekend` show to follow the news. Does Voice of Guyana not insert any local top-of-hour IDs during the BBC overnight relay? Usual poor signal but enough to copy the above; I had just found BBCWS itself missing from 9460 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDIA. 13600-13605-13610, Feb 14 at 2331, heavy noise, very rough unlike the usual DRM sound, but with sharp edges. HFCC shows AIR in English at 2230-0045 from Bengaluru as NOT DRM, but Aoki says it is digital. But no Aoki aste*isk as for the 10-11 AIR GOS on 13605 which is analog and is jammed. Maybe we are getting DRM and ChiCom noise jamming both now, the latter also perhaps a variant of DRM (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 11725, Feb 15 at 0652, RNZI is audible with newsy report, only fair signal but quite an improvement over 24 hours earlier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UKRAINE [non]. 11580, Feb 14 at 2335, RUI via WRMI, outroducing news with ID as “Radio Ukraine International“, unlike the sign-on which says “Ukrainian Radio`; and next the announcer introducing the “Saturday program“ shortens it to just “Radio Ukraine“, so maybe all these variations are really insignificant. (Just so they don`t ever have to call it “Radio New Russia“.) Good signal but there is a bit of overmodulation/distortion not noticed before (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U K [non]. 9460, Feb 14 at 0654, no signal from BBCWS English relay via ASCENSION, which is normally reliable during this hour. Poor signal still on 9915 as always with ute hash ACI on the lo side. In an HFCC schedule last modified 9 Dec, 9460 is supposed to be on from 06 to 07, and 9915 from 06 to 08 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395, Sunday Feb 15 at 1356, Global 24 announcement rather than R. Cairo, which I assume is still missing from this relay, altho still on the schedule grid whose URL I miniaturized to
as 1300-1430 Sundays (and 1100-1220 Mondays). The sked is still dated December 2014, tho I think some changes have been made since then but still not fully updated to mesh with reality (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5890, Feb 14 at 2325, surprised to find VG signal here on a WWCR frequency, with rock/blues music. Feb 1 edition of online WWCR sked shows #4 is supposed to be OFF THE AIR on Saturdays from 2300 until 0500 UT Sundays — and when it is on then, during the M-F 23-03 UT Tue-Sat span, it`s on 7520, not 5890.

But further listening reveals this show is `Last Radio Playing` with Alan/Alun/Alynn/Allan/Allen Gray/Grey/Graigh, via WWCR. At 2333 introduces Clarence Carter with “That Road of Love“. Local references to Nashville area, so an in-house produxion? A secret transmission of WWCR: will it be on every week? Title is not in the alfabetical listing of programs, but searching the entire sked, it`s spelt Allan Gray, with non-secret times: Sat 07-08 on 4840 and 3215; Sat 20-21 on 12160, Mon 21-22 on 9350; UT Wed 00-01 on 5070 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1120, Sat Feb 14 at 2347 UT, anti-radical-Islam talk show, criticising the president for not being anti-that enough, mentions “on a Friday afternoon“ so apparently not live. Good signal with KMOX totally nulled, this looping roughly N/S. Phone 1-800-684-3110 and mentions which is the American Center for Law & Justice. Looks like they are pro-Jewish, but prime suspect is the new Christian station, KTXW in Manor (Austin) TX.

ACLJ has an extensive list of radio affiliates (including lots of translators), but you have to search it state by state and there is no 1120 listed in TX (or OK or MS, the only other possibilities). So I go directly to KTXW program schedule,
to find Sat at 5-6 pm CST it`s `Jay Sekulow Live`, and guess what, the click-on link on his name leads right back to — so this is KTXW, now branded as “The Bridge“. It`s 5600/155 watts U4. Day pattern has major lobe NW, minor SE. Night pattern is broad from NW to SW to SE, nulling toward KMOX. Still on day pattern: official sunset in Feb is not until 0015 UT (March: 0045 UT) (If KEOR Tulsa etc. dead air carrier is on now, like still on daytime groundwave, it`s completely overridden.)(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6770-USB, Feb 14 at 2340, 2-way in Spanish, nothing from oldtime radio pirate audible tho others further east are getting it all the time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 21750 & 21650, Feb 14 at 1506, VG signals with open carriers, lite fading; both off at 1514 recheck. Much weaker than WHRI 21600 blaster; 21540 Kuwait good as usual, so could be from eastern or western hemisphere. Greenville, maybe? Nothing in HFCC for either frequency at any time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
