Glenn Hauser logs July 4-5, 2015

** CHILE [non]. 12365-USB, July 4 at 2030, checking for another fútbol relay from CBV Valparaíso, but no signal detectable. The final final Copa América match between Chile and Argentina was scheduled to start at 2000 UT. Manuel Méndez in Spain was not hearing it either between 20 and 21, but did detect a very weak signal making it at 2245.

I had also checked circa 2030 the old LTA Argentina SSB feeder frequencies which it seems have not been reported since 2013 — nothing on 15820 or 13363.5 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 13690, July 5 at 1336, CNR1 with Sunday-evening classical music show, good signal and little QRM, tho this is really a jammer against VOA Chinese via Saipan during this hour only. In fact, the jammer is by far the best source for the show rather than any non-jamming CNR1 frequencies. Also poorly audible on:

16160, July 5 at 1338, CNR1 jammer, very poor
11785, July 5 at 1339, CNR1 jammer, poor
11640, July 5 at 1340, CNR1 jammer, very poor
None in the 18s, 17s, 15s, 14s, 12s, 10s. The 17 MHz band is completely dead except for a VP signal from E Turkistan on 17560!

Back to 13690 at 1343 which is playing Wagner very well — could this be a Chinese orchestra? 1351 talk over the music incomplete and switch to variations on “Happy Birthday“; 1357 cut to hyper announcements with classical program over. At least they play some Western classical, but do not respect it enough not to interrupt. Is this Wagner`s birthday? No, May 22, 1813. Some weeks this hour plays Chinese “classical“ instead (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 550, July 5 at 0557, ID for Cuauhtémoc, Chihuahua, 107.1 [?], “la Súper Estación, la frecuencia líder“. 550 is XEPL, 5/0.15 kW per IRCA Mexican log 2014, and Cantú as of Feb 2015, but both with FM on 91.3. WTFDA DB shows the only Chih on 107.1 is XHEHB in San Francisco del Oro, simulcasting XEHB 730. Website still matches 91.3 XHEPL with 550 as secondary (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 660, July 5 at 0600, music is just finishing, not the NA, and full ID for 98.9 La Lupe, XHACB “la estación líder del Grupo —“, singing ID and stops, so is XEACB, Ciudad Delicias, Chihuahua, signing off? IRCA shows until 0700 UT, but that could be non-DST winter timing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PAPUA NEW GUINEA [non]. Correxion to beginning of my long PNG item in last report, 0500, not 0600 typo in original:

12025, July 4 at 0456, live coverage of a silly ballgame, apparently American Sámoa vs PNG, fair signal, past 0500 with no ID. This is the latest sensation, NBC suddenly on new SW frequencies for a special event. . .

12025, July 5 at 0522, YL then bit of dead air, OM re game on “NBC National Radio, 90.7 and 92.5 FM, and our shortwave listeners in PNG and the Pacific“; good signal which we continue to suspect is 100 kW from Shepparton, AUSTRALIA, rather than 10 or 20 or 25 kW from Brandon as alleged (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SUDAN [and non]. 13800, July 5 at 0520, R. Dabanga via MADAGASCAR, VG signal, in fact the OSOB as nothing is propagating from Europe; also het jammers from Sudan itself on hi side (Glenn Hauser, OK DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1780 monitoring: confirmed amid UT Sunday July 5 at 0330 with WA0RCR ID inserted on 1860 kHz AM; barely audible here in noise level, but I think I pick up at Guam, so started circa 0315. Next:
Sun 2100 on WRMI 15770
Sun 2300 on WRMI 11580
Mon 0300v on WBCQ 5110v Area 51
Mon 0330 on WRMI 9955
Tue 1100 on WRMI 9955
Wed 0630 on Hamburger Lokalradio 7265-CUSB
Wed 1315 on WRMI 9955
Wed 1430 on Hamburger Lokalradio 7265-CUSB
Wed 2100 on WBCQ 7490v

UNIDENTIFIED. 6946.6, July 5 at 0529, open AM carrier with some Doppler flutter; pirate? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
