Glenn Hauser logs March 31, 2016

** BELARUS [and non]. 11730, March 31 at 1953, carrier at S1 to S2. This is supposed to be the last day on air for R. Belarus, which I never hear beyond a carrier out here and that`s still the case. But I keep checking on this momentous occasion, for Spanish at 2000-2020, then English. It supposed to be // 11930, but no way to hear anything there under Cuban jamming and Radio Martí.

At 2055 I have the S2 carrier on 11730, and everything is supposed to close down at 2100 UT = midnight in Minsk. And so it does, or more precisely at 2100:13* the carrier cuts off in the middle of the scheduled English broadcast until 2200.

Several other monitors further east axually heard the English modulation interrupted. Finis! A couple minutes later I`m talking about this on WOR via WRMI 13695. So it was no joke. BTW, 11735 Zanzibar went off at 2056* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 13605, March 31 at 1954, S9 wall-of-noise jamming against Radio Martí, so the DCJC has finally found it amid the fifth day of jamming-free reception on 13605, as it was still in the clear at my previous check 1423 today. Maybe Arnie ultimately got around to reading my log reports. But ex-13820 still has some jamnoise on it to the tune of S5; 11930 provides the most Martí signal + jamming amounting to S7. At 1954, Greenville carrier is already on 9565, and so is jamming, S7 level too, with a sprinkling of N`s and C`s in Morse code. By 2007, the jamming is all gone from 13820; at 2010, 13605 has beeps and noise jamming, but no more Martí, as the two frequencies for it now are 9565 and 11930 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** FRANCE. 17849.86, March 31 at 1958-1959*, RFI in French off-frequency from Issoudun, but a little further from the much stronger Spain 17855.0 ACI, just as was the case last A-season. No need for these two to be in near-collision (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 11865-11870-11875, March 31 at 2011, DRM noise at S2, i.e. RRI in French to Europe, from Galbeni site. It gets worse: at 2030 the English broadcast follows in DRM, but ALSO scheduled on 11870 is English to North America in AM from the other site, Tsiganeshti! I meant to check again after 2030 but missed it today.

But Peter W Hansen in South Florida confirmed it March 28 as I quote on WORLD OF RADIO 1819: “Romania at 2030-2100 UT today on 11870 in AM to North America and DRM to Europe. Could just barely hear the AM broadcast // to 13650 in the DRM noise“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non non]. 17815 and 17765, March 31 before 2000, the two Brother Scare frequencies via WHRI, are not the bigsigs they were 24 hours earlier; in fact, 17815 is weaker than 17790 WRMI but sounds louder until 17815 goes off at 2000 while 17765 continues but only S2 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 17855, March 31 at 2000, REE opening `Españoles en la Mar` erstwhile show for seafarers, main constituency keeping REE on SW. Usual SFX of seagulls, boat horn, and Morse code spelling out program title. “Desde tierra firma —“ about the fishing industry, big in Spain. NO news on the hour any more. VG signal on this North American frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7489.85-AM, Thu March 31 at 2330, Broad Spectrum Radio via WBCQ starting `Exploring Aspergia` sub-program. BSR is also on Channel 292, 6070 in Germany, and Unique Radio, 3210 in NSW. The increasingly complex program schedule is here for the rest of April:

** U S A. 9275, March 31 at 1947, WMLK is on, very poor on BST-1 caradio; but next check at 2019 UT on NRD-545, it`s off already. Seems they tend to go off earlier than before, if on at all (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9904.2 approx., March 31 at 2023, some buzz is centered about here, suspiciously double the distance, 25.8 kHz, of the persistent parasite spur from 9930 WTWW-2 which I do hear again on 9917.10, S7 level with hum and trace of modulation bleeding thru. Its mate is plus 12.9 kHz on 9942.9, S6 with hum. Also a trace of same buzz at double that, 9955.8, too close to 9955.0 WRMI. Fundamental 9930 is S9+50 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VATICAN. 11625, March 31 at 2013, American English, news about UN efforts vs hate-speech, 2016 switch to African accent about DR Congo and the UN. But it`s not UN Radio — Vatican Radio, African service at 2000-2030, southward from SMG with fair signal here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11600, March 31 at 1952 and 2014, something is here with very poor signal. Possibilities: Denge Kurdistane, Brother Scare, Radio Biafra. Sites possible: Bulgaria, France or Pridnestrovye.

A-16 HFCC registrations: BRB via KCH at 03-21; SOF with TOM at 17-20 & 2000-2359, different beams. As of March 31, DX ReMix News/Observer Bulgaria accounts for Kurdistan at 13-17 Bulgaria, 17-19 France; At 20-23, in B-15 had been 11600 with R. Biafra, but A-16 “probably will be 11590 or 12075“. Another entry mentions 12075 but no signal. I wasn`t aware of 11590, but check 12075 and no signal for me either, at 1951, 2007. At 2101, there is still no signal on 12075, and now nothing on 11600 either (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
