** BRAZIL. 11780, Dec 30 at 0635, strong open carrier, and just about the OSOB, from RNA; 0645 finally starts modulating with Portuguese wake-up talk in progress (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CHINA. Firedrake Dec 30: none found 18-7 MHz 1346-1350, except: 12500, good with flutter at 1349; another search at 1437+ lacked even this (Glenn Hauser, OK, …

** ANTARCTICA. 15476, Thu Dec 29 at 1435 check, still nothing from LRA36 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CANADA [non]. 9635, Dec 29 at 1506, “The Link“ introducing Lynn Desjardins with a report about North Korea (but I assume she remains in Montreal), fair signal but heavy flutter, so RCI, having abandoned its North American audience, may still …

** CHINA. Firedrake Dec 28: 1350-1355, none found 7-18 MHz. Tnx to several other monitors who are still hearing it at various times, reports all collected in DXLD in date/time order (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CUBA [and non]. 9885, 13750 and 15590, Dec 28 at 1345, all three VOA Spanish frequencies are free of jamming, during `Buenos …

** BOTSWANA. 15570, Dec 27 at *2058, my tune-up theory is confirmed, as I was waiting for VOA on both 15570 and 15580. The lower came on with carrier at 2058, by 2059 VOA Bonaire was off 15580, but 15570 Botswana did not cut to 15580 until a few notes of the VOA opening had played on 15570 at 2100. …

** BOTSWANA. Shortly after posting my last logs, under USA [non], the likely explanation for VOA appearing on 15570 instead of 15580 at 21-22 UT Dec 26 occurred to me: because 15580 is used right up until 2100 by another site (Bonaire), Botswana tunes up before 2100 on 15570 instead, and simply stayed on it that day instead of switching …

** CHINA. 11945, Dec 26 at 2124, huge signal in Chinese from CNR1; it really stands out, as there is nothing like it anywhere else on 11 MHz or higher bands. Not in schedules, so we have R. Free Asia to thank for this, since if it were not broadcasting Mandarin at 95 degrees from Tajikistan overnight, all the way …

** CHINA. Firedrake Dec 26: 1430-1436, and 1555-1600, complete bandscans from 7 to 19 MHz found none at all. I was hoping for some, as at the earlier hour, CNR1 + jammers were all over the 6 and 7 MHz bands with VG signals. Dec 26 at the late hour of 1622, I tune the 6 MHz band to see …

** CHINA. Re my previous report recommending `China Horizon` with Xmas music in Chinese this week: Alan Roe, UK, had already done the same and found where it`s at on CRI website: “A very pleasant programme and worth tuning-in — or downloading at http://media.iphone.cri.cn/features/horizons/2011/1225horizons.mp3 China Horizons is scheduled from xx.30 to xx.55 on Sunday at 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, …

** ALBANIA [and non]. 7425, still here Dec 25 at 0018, Albanian music from R. Tirana, marred by fast SAH and CCI from China underneath, while 7420 is vacant (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CHINA [non]. 5990, Dec 24 at 2337, CRI via CUBA is playing “Silent Night“ in Chinese by women`s choir with organ and chime accompaniment, …

** BHUTAN [and non]. 6035, Dec 23 at 1423, once again with BFO I can detect double-carriers on slightly different frequencies, presumably Yunnan and BBS; and nothing audible on 5030 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CHINA. Firedrake Dec 23 before 1400: 12980, very poor at 1358; none others audible 7-18 MHz, like yesterday; altho my hi local noise …

** CHINA. Firedrake Dec 4: 12600, good at 1447; none in the 9s, 10s, 11s, 13s, 14s, 15s, 16s, 17s, 18s. At 1524 none at all found, not even 12600 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CUBA. 13750, Dec 4 at 1410, RHC on nonsensical Sunday-only frequency, and this time 9850 is absent, as `Amigos de Cuba` themed mailbag …

Glenn Hauser logs November 20-21, 2011

** ARGENTINA. 15345.0+, Nov 20 at 2159, R. Nacional has now escaped collision with Morocco as the latter unexpectedly shifted yesterday to 15349.5 and then 15349.1. LRA has heavy flutter unlike Morocco, and a big 4+kHz het between them now allows separation by side-tuning (or tighter selectivity; LRA is closer to 15345 than IMM is to 15349). Song in progress …
