Glenn Hauser logs September 17, 2017

** AUSTRALIA. 9690, Sept 17 at 1230, poor signal and nothing on 9685; 1243 non-Nutcracker music now up to fair S8-S5, and 1244 same RBA English sign/off as yesterday for Burmese service “until tomorrow at 1115 on 9685“, 1245*. So maybe it`s a deliberate change (a little further from the Chinese radio war on 9680), but the news has not reached the programming department (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5025, Sept 17 at 0548, R. Rebelde is open carrier/dead air at S9+20; at 1240 still DA and weaker after sunrise, maybe a trace of modulation. This problem has been dogging Rebelde for weeks; evidently no one at RadioCuba knows or cares about it. Think of all the undernourished Cubans who could be fed by electrical money wasted on dead air, and jamming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, Sept 17 at 0550, this RHC English frequency is still off as it has been for a while lately, remaining on 5040, 6060, 6000, 6145, in order of decreasing modulation level. 6100 is still heard in Spanish before 1300 with Asian CCI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11580, Sept 17 at 0200, as I am confirming WOR 1895 via WRMI, I hear co-channel QRM underneath from RHC in Spanish! I had previously remarked that a possible leapfrog mixing product onto 11580 had not yet been heard clashing with WRMI — but now it has. It`s 11760 over 11670 another 90 kHz lower. While on 11580 they add up to S7-8, 11670 is S9+20, and when I get back to rate 11760 at 0204 it has cut off the air and along with it the `frog. Modulation level was wildly different, soft on 11760, loud on 11670. If both had been loud, 11580 should have been worse (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 17730, Sept 17 at 1415, RHC S9+10 open carrier/dead air, while 17580 is off (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 5960, Sept 17 at 0130 check, JBA carrier from presumed The Mighty KBC, so the new frequency via GERMANY is not working out very well. Some months ago I tried to convince Uncle Eric to get on WRMI or WBCQ if he really wants a reliable signal into North America, but his loyalty lies with MBR (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TIBET [non]. 11512, Sept 17 at 1307, JBA carrier, presumed V. of Tibet via TAJIKISTAN on signature split frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1895 monitoring: altho UTwente and I could not hear HLR 7265 Sept 16, the reliable Alan Gale further in the UK replies, “Hi Glenn, You were on 7265 kHz at 1430 UT today, but even here the signal was very poor and faded out after the first 10 minutes or so. Apart from a short period during Radio Tropical when the signal came up, it was generally very bad during most of today’s broadcast. It must just be skywave length as Channel 292 on 6070 kHz was audible right throughout that period without any difficulty. Alan“

Confirmed here UT Sunday September 17 at 0200 on WRMI, reactivated 11580, fair but with CubaRM! See CUBA. Also confirmed UT Sun Sept 17 at 0321 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, good about 7 minutes into, so started circa 0314. No confirmation yet of the Sun 1030 on HLR 9485-CUSB. Next:
Sun 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Mon 0300v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0330 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Mon 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW

** U S A. 7570, Sept 17 at 1251, another WRMI frequency reactivated, with BS at S9+20, but still no 7730;

5850, Sept 17 at 1302 is also back with BS, fair.

15770, at 1312 Sept 17, still no signal: I think that`s the one, #3, which fed the broken 44-degree antenna.

One more FB post to quote since my last report:

“0000 UTC Sunday September 17, 2017 – Now Transmitter 11 is back on also. That’s 7570 kHz, beamed 315 degrees towards Vancouver like Transmitter 12 on 5850. We now have 10 transmitters/frequencies back on the air. Transmitters 8, 13 and 14 are still down [11825, 7730, 5950], plus #3 [15770] which was using the 44-degree European antenna that was severely damaged by the hurricane. We may not be able to resume using that antenna. Our phone lines are working again, so the Internet may come back soon“

9395 // 9455, Sept 17 at 1322, `Wavescan` is running with logs from some dowunderite, 1325 Ray Robinson hosting with final item, QSL of the Week. Evidently he produced this week`s show, with Jeff out of axion tnx to Irma. The Sunday 1300 emission of WS continues to be secret, not on the WRMI skedgrids, but it`s been going for months. By 1413, the pair are back to // Oldies (while on weekdays would be `The Power Hour` [sic] until 1500) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
