Glenn Hauser logs January 16-17-18, 2019

** BRAZIL. 11780, Jan 17 at 2300, RNA is VG, S9+10/20, but nothing on 6180 — so not to be expected on two at once, altho possible as proven a few days ago. And no CCI to CRI via Cuba 6180 after 0100 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHAD [non]. 12050, Jan 17 at 2027, poor S6 in presumed Kanuri, from Radio Ndarason International, tnx to absence of WEWN Spanish; also uncovering that “ASCENSION hum“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15370, Jan 17 at 2031, dead air from VP carrier, must be RHC: Hurry up, French to Europe supposed to start at 2030. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11980, Jan 18 at 0123, S9-S7 Spanish, soon clearly RHC // much stronger S9+20 11840 and much weaker S8-S5 11700. 11980 adds up as a leapfrog mixing product of 11700 over 11840 another 140 kHz beyond as I believe I have heard before; but strangely, modulation is louder on 11980 than 11840 which doesn`t really make sense. Could there be some other explanation, despite the math, like an intentional secret fundamental or harmonic? Could be 5990 x 2, but that`s for CRI relay and not on air now. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 5009.9+, Jan 18 at 0330, VP carrier with trace of mod, presumed RNM (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 9855, Jan 17 at 2040, S9+10 in French, but quite undermodulated, NHK via Talata (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 9699.985, Thu Jan 17 at 0627, English programming obviously from RNZI and slightly displaced, but not a scheduled time for 9700; with fast SAH from authorized 9700 station, presumed VOT in Turkish at 04-07 (but I see in HFCC also NHK Japanese at 05-09). Normally have only a VP signal from Turkey. Only a minute later, RNZI cuts off at 0628*. Then I check 13730 where it is supposed to be until 0658 — nothing, altho often audible as the OSOB. At 0632 I find an open carrier on 9765.01 at S7-S9, soon JIP RNZ programming. So instead of resuming 13730, they bring the next frequency up early. No doubtthis is their periodic maintenance check, but it must be tough for people axually trying to listen to RNZI on its scheduled frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7200-LSB, Jan 17 at 2109, naughty hams are having their usual big time. One of them says the music jammer is N2FUV in Kodak, Tennessee, i.e. per ARRL lookup, Michael J. Mgrdichian [sic]. But don`t assume this be true without further evidence. FCC van? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12075, Thu Jan 17 at 2112, VOA-Afrique via BOTSWANA M-F, with lengthy English lessons for French. Several different sexions, some with long English text, then discussing and explaining; such as Q&A interview about the American Civil War; 2127 about the very important English verb “to have“ (avoir), along with “to be“; also referred to websites, including partial AmericanEnglish—.gov. Seems this USG department continues unabated, altho teaching English would not seem to be essential. Good (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1965 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday January 16 at 2200 on WBCQ 7490.1v, good, and stronger than WRMI 9955, fair, about 6 words apart, and 9955 again with a strange regular SAH fading as if from another transmitter a few Hz away. I forgot to check the new time of 0100 UT Thursday January 17 on WRMI 7780; anyone hear it? Next:

Complete updated WOR sked, all affiliates, satellite, webcast, AM&FM:

** U S A. 7490.10v, UT Fri Jan 18 at 0117, Available Time Slot on WBCQ contains a playback of `Allan Weiner Worldwide` talking about the new Ampegon antenna.

5130.4v, UT Fri Jan 18 circa 0130, WBCQ is on with some talk program, altho nothing at all scheduled between UT Wed and UT Sat (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 13688, Jan 17 at 1442, tones beating against each other from WINB DRM transmitter as usual, but hardly any DRM noise on the plus side of 13690; strange.

A week ago, Wolfgang Bueschel described this: “14 x like CODAR strings visible on 13684.755, 13689.670, 13689.970, 13694.850 kHz and 6 kHz broad data block seen. 330 Hertz apart distance strings“.

No spurs from RHC on 13 or 15 MHz this morning (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12050, Jan 17 at 2027, no signal from WEWN Spanish, so see CHAD [non]. 5970, WEWN Spanish night frequency also AWOL circa 0130 Jan 18, and always? WEWN English afternoons on 15610 still running at 2029, and 11520 at night (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9265, Jan 18 at 0030 UT Fri, I`m on computer so confess to listening online confirming Tim`s `Sounds of Your Life` music show, Unique Radio via WINB; checked SW 9265 at 0122 with something else at S9-S5. Better luck this week getting International Radio Report onto the other primetime Unique, UT Sun 0130 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ZANZIBAR. 11735, Jan 17 at 1845, nothing audible from ZBC reactivated, as Manuel Méndez, Spain has reported a few minutes earlier including the sporadic Spice FM news in English at 1800. Nor can I detect it at 2045 before presumed 2100*v. Harold Frodge, Michigan had the same negative results today. DXLD archives show 11735 not reported since October or November. At least they no longer would have CCI from Brasil.

6015, Jan 18 at 0336, S9 YL talking, unseems Swahili like we hear now from Japan/Madagascar 9560; I even toyed with Romanian but no RRI here. Maybe Zanz dialect or something else, as ZBC is certainly here since 0254 per EiBi. Modulation break at 0339-0340, resumes with song and variety of OB voices (Outside Broadcast). LSB preferred to diminish 6020 ACI. Also on 6015 until 0345 is PBS Xinjiang, Urumqi in Kazakh but sun rose there 2+ hours ago (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 12000, Jan 17 at 2025-2031+, S9-S5 of open carrier. Still on at 2110 but weaker. Nothing at all scheduled in EiBi or Aoki; and HFCC has only Vietnam, wooden? at 1100-1330 & 2200-2230.

BUT, our prime suspect is CUBA where an RHC harmonic or unacknowledged fundamental shows up at other times. Also reminds me of the prolonged dead carrier on exactly 9000 heard a few days ago (and not now). Or 12000 could be an inband test/warmup frequency from some IBB site, none scheduled nearby (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
