Glenn Hauser logs April 15-16, 2011

** ALBANIA. 13625, April 16 at 0527 just after monitoring R. Dabanga on 13620 — see SUDAN [non], I notice that a station has appeared on 13625 which was vacant a few minutes earlier: playing jazz music, variations on “Hit the Road, Jack“. What in the world? YL then mentions Willie Nelson, Wynton Marsalis. Shortly, several IDs for Radio Tirana, …

** ANGUILLA. 6090, April 15 at 1008 UT, DGS is still pontificating past nominal 1000 switch to day frequency 11775, and even at 1019, but gone at next check 1031; by 1046, 11775 was on air with successor PMS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** ANTARCTICA. 15476, after LRA36`s official reactivation yesterday, I am listening again April 15 from …

** ANTARCTICA. 15476, LRA36 finally back in business, following sporadic logs of it past two days, and Roberto Scaglione`s news that they hoped to have all the problems solved by April 14 for 1230-1500 transmissions (presumably M-F only) — 1228 tune-in April 14 to open carrier, fading up from S6 to peaks of S9+10. 1229 YL says “Transmite LRA36 . …

** ANTARCTICA. 15476, April 13 at 1257, 1325 and 1357, not even a carrier detectable from LRA36 — However, Bruce Winkelman in Tulsa was hearing it a bit earlier, at 1206-1215, and Lúcio Otávio Bobrowiec in Embu, SP, Brasil, the day before at 2035-2102 — so still testing, or what will their complete new schedule be? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX …

** ANTARCTICA. 15476, April 12, guess what? Still no LRA36 carrier at 1255, 1407 chex (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CHINA. Firedrake April 12: nothing on 8400 at 1252, and with very poor EAs propagation today, only cursory check upband found no others (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CUBA [and non]. 17560, RHC continues to collide …

** ANTARCTICA. 15476, no carrier from LRA36, Monday April 11 at 1308, 1418, 1456 checks. Still waiting for them to resume regular operation after the surprise re-appearance (test?) April 6 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** AUSTRALIA. THE DUMBING-DOWN OF RADIO AUSTRALIA: one of the few bright spots on the SW dial in our mornings (in English with a …

Glenn Hauser logs April 9-10, 2011

** ALBANIA [and non]. 13640, R. Tirana English to NAm and Europe, April 9 at 1845-1857:40*, typically ending at least two minutes before the hour/half hour, still has co-channel QRM from All India Radio, also causing a rippling SAH. Altho R. Tirana is slightly stronger here, an unacceptable collision. If AIR continues to be unresponsive about this usurpation, R. Tirana …

Glenn Hauser logs April 8-9, 2011

** ALBANIA [and non]. 13640, checking again April 8 the unexpected AIR interference to R. Tirana, English to North America at 2000-2030: At 1920, 13640 has poor signal mix of the two Arabic stations. 1958, India in French is very poor but reads S9+10 peaks. *1959, RT comes on with carrier at S9+15, but less modulation more than makes up …

Glenn Hauser logs April 8, 2011

** ANTARCTICA. 15476, LRA36 still missing April 8, after sudden appearance April 6, and absence April 7. Roberto Scaglione says they were working on fixing antenna and transmitter problems. On April 8 I checked repeatedly at 1255, 1330, 1409, 1417, 1447 and never heard even a carrier, tho propagation was poor. Harold Frodge, reporting to DXLD, also looked for it …

Glenn Hauser logs April 7, 2011

** ANTARCTICA. 15476, after appearing April 6 for the first time in almost 5 months, LRA36 gone again as eagerly sought 24 hours later, no signal, not even a carrier detected April 7 at 1237, 1300, 1320, 1334, 1353, 1404, 1410, 1430. Perhaps yesterday was just a test. No reply to my e-mail inquiry (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) …

Glenn Hauser logs April 5-6, 2011

** ANTARCTICA. After checking 15476 just about every weekday morning for more than two months, LRA36 is finally back on the air! Tipoff as I tuned across was tell-tale 4-kHz het against Poland [non] 15480. April 6 at 1332, 15476 with songs, lots of fading, S9+10 peaks. Previously until it disappeared in November, there would often be nothing but a …

Glenn Hauser logs April 1-2, 2011

** ANGUILLA [and non]. 11775, April 2 at 1350, PMS is JBA and I thought she was very undermodulated until I noticed a SAH, indicating suppression by a stronger carrier atop; but nothing else scheduled now except AIR Tibetan/Nepali via GOA at 1200-1430, surely not the source of this. Could have been a R. Martí Greenville or Sackville tuneup for …
