** BRAZIL. 11735 with Brazilian Portuguese dominating over North Korea for a change, but making lo het with it, Sept 21 at 1401 full Rádio Transmundial ID, giving ZY- callsigns (ze-úpsilon-) for several frequencies including this and one on 50 m, but fading prevented detailed copy, peaking S9+12. 1403 opening program “Bom Dia, RTM“ tho it`s already 11 am there. …

Glenn Hauser logs: Egypt correxion (2)

Somehow I wrote 7260 once when I meant 7540 in this graf of my report about EGYPT: Now corrected: The 0200-0330 broadcast may be a `west coast service` in the sense that it is at a more convenient prime time in PDT, 7-8:30 pm and is he second of two English sesquihours to NAm, after 2300-2430 on 11590, but the …

** ANGUILLA. Caribbean Beacon silent again on 6090, Sept 20 at 0558, but maybe not for a week this time, as DGS was back on 11775 at 1300 check, never with any local ID at hourtop or anywhen (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** ARGENTINA. As an example of how feeble the “100 kW“ transmitter at General Pacheco is, …

** CANADA. Yet another Sackville leapfrog to add to the stable: 6045, Sept 19 at 0522 in Vietnamese, the 6175 VOV relay transmitter saulting over the 6110 transmitter carrying NHK at 0500-0530 only, another 65 kHz downward. The fundamentals were very strong, audiblizing the parasite. There should be another one on 6240 in the other direxion, this one with NHK …

** ANTARCTICA. 15476, LRA36 audible for second day at about same insufficient level, but incomparably better than nothing. If only my line noise level would abate! Sept 18 at 1902 with bits of music; still audible with more music at recheck 2035 when no QRDRM was to be heard, so has Greenville finally ended its test run without respect for …

** ANTARCTICA. Couldn`t listen to World of Radio on WBCQ, which turned off 9330 just after it started at 1900 Sept 17; and 7415 just barely audible, so what to do? Oh, I`ll listen to Antarctica instead. Tuned to 15476 at 1902 and there was weakly audible music, signal fading up a bit including at 1904 when YL gave ID …

** BOTSWANA [and non]. Checking VOA self-collision at 1430 on 17585: Sept 16 at 1428 found open carrier on 17575, which is the warmup frequency for Botswana, and meanwhile 17585 from Greenville was JBA. 17575 went off a few sex before 1430, and VOA World News Now came up on 17585 at 1430 with much improved signal over Greenville. So …

** CANADA. 6070, CFRX with VG signal at 0523 Sept 15 discussing duct/duck tape (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CUBA. Anomaly report Sept 15: 13780 missing at 1351, RHC still there as usual on 13760 and 13680, but the leapfrog on 13880 also absent, of course. 13740 open carrier from CRI relay not yet on either, but was …

** BRAZIL. For the third time, I hear extremely distorted FMy spur in Brazilian Portuguese, extending from 5773 to 5785 and peaking around 5777, Sept 14 at 0521, presumably from or instead of 6060, Rádio Tupi, Curitiba, as reported previously from Brasil and Uruguay. Each time I have heard it around this hour, it`s all-talk, no music. Those with true …

** ANGUILLA. Caribbean Beacon finally back on the air after missing since Sept 5, heard Sept 13 at 0455 on 6090 with PMS; also on 11775 at 1308 with DGS. Some reported 11775 back on as of Sept 12 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CHINA. Firedrake Sept 13: at 1255 nothing on 8400, poor on 9000. 9985 at …

** ANGUILLA. Caribbean Beacon still off the air Sept 12, nothing on 6090 at 0510 check, nor on 11775 at various daytime chex. Must be a fairly serious problem. Bryan Clark in NZ, however, says MW 1610 was still heard Sept 7 at 0503, so it`s only about SW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** BIAFRA [non]. Voice of …

** ANTARCTICA. 15476, LRA36 detectable carrier Sept 10 at 1910, 2036 with a bit of music mixing with Greenville DRM, certainly unexpected, but both signals quite weak. Later found that some other North Americans were getting LRA36 better this date (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CANADA [and non]. 6070, CFRX, Sept 10 at 1218 with local Toyota ad; …
