Glenn Hauser logs March 10-11, 2016

** BOLIVIA. 6105.33, March 11 at 0636, JBA carrier in RHC 6100 splash; in clear at 0705 after RHC is off, but only S6 and can barely hear any modulation. Tnx to timely tip on the DXLD yg from Bryan Clark, New Zealand, this is R. Panamericana, on extended schedule. He had it on 6105.34 around 0600 and matched to their webstream. Will be interesting to see if this SWBC keep up, or a one-off. It might come in better at some other time. Nominally 10 kW per WRTH, like 6134.8v R. Santa Cruz and twice the power of 5952.4v Pio Doce. Possibly this presence have something to do with a big controversy in Bolivia, as the government is trying to get rid of many private stations with licenses about to expire (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9935, March 11 at 0710, S4 signal but no whine! Apparently same Greek(?) talk as on // 9420 S5, rather late for them here, but at 0330 March 11, Richard Langley in New Brunswick also heard no whine; fixed, or a fluke? Ivo Ivanov says the 0700 hour started in Serbian and Romanian (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN. 11720.02, March 11 at 1323, Qur`an, S6 with heavy flutter; 1330 three ascending chimes at hourtop, Iran mentioned. No break for national anthem, etc., as this is amid a continuous Dari broadcast, 1150-1420, 500 kW, 85 degrees from Kamalabad. HFCC calls Dari “PRS“ as in Persian, a language VIRI really refuses to radiate. But I suppose Persians abroad can mostly understand Dari.

11730.016, March 11 at 1335, better S9 signal from VIRI here in Urdu,  1250-1420, 500 kW, 118 degrees from Kamalabad (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH. 11735.0, March 11 at 0714, music detectable at S1. A good example of how HFCC is divorced from reality, not a single station registered anywhen on 11735. Yet we know it`s a VOK frequency, and indeed per Aoki in French during this hour, 28 degrees USward. And of course there are two others, R. Transmundial, Brasil, and Zanzibar, but not at this hour. (BTW, 11780.105 Brasil is quite attenuated right now, only S4) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TIBET [non]. 15573, March 11 at 1320, JBA carrier. Must be V. of Tibet via TAJIKISTAN on typical split frequency to minimize jamming. Yes, latest info from Ivo Ivanov shows as of March 3-6:
“1315-1330 NF 15573 DB  100 kW / 131 deg to CeAs Tibetan, ex 13583“

I was really checking for KBS World Radio on 15575, the so-called North American service in English. Not a trace of even a carrier! There is a carrier on 15570, however, which could be the CNR1 jammer, tho normally it would be 2, rather than 3 kHz away from VOT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. 11580, Fri Mar 11 at 1315, WRMI has defaulted to fill music again, “Up, Up & Away“, instead of Brother HyStairical, like still on 11825, but 11580 is colliding with KTWR in Vietnamese 1245-1330 (longer on weekends). By 1526 check, 11580 is back with BS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 11520, March 11 at 0711, open fading S8-S3 carrier, dead air from WEWN English; at 0717, 11870 in Spanish is very poor but modulated (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1370, March 11 at 1250 UT, from NNE/SSW, ad in English for Aquinas, a Catholic college in Nashville; 1257 UT Catholic talk and EWTN mentioned, lost before 1300 UT ToH. Therefore it must be the only EWTN Radio affiliate on 1370, KWTL Grand Forks ND, 12000/270/psra 500 watts U1, as in NRC AM Log, and confirmed the only 1370 hit at
which is “Domestic AM-FM affiliates, English-Spanish, Revised 02-17-2016“ with Spanish ones a*terisked — lots and lots of `em including many FM translators and LPs, arranged by state. There is also a map to click upon. As with any station near a state line, it is necessary to check which state it really transmit from: per
it is barely on the ND side; tho non-direxonal, coverage toward the east into Minnesota is reduced, due to terrain? March official FCC sunrise is 1245 UT; April: 1145 UT. Seems I have not logged KWTL before.

Meanwhile, I still can`t get *anything* from my nearest 1370, the alleged 5000/230 U1 KGNO Dodge City KS. The FCC still thinx it does not qualify for

UNIDENTIFIED. 11460-USB, March 11 at 1313, Indonesian(?) QSO pirate mentions Jakarta; others at 1314 on 11440-USB, weaker 11435, and at 1315 two at least on 11420-USB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 1742 UT March 11
