Glenn Hauser logs June 6-7, 2012

** CANADA. 15235, June 6 at 1900, RCI in Arabic, very poor, while 17735 is much better in French. 17735 is the only scheduled Sackville frequency for French; I was misled by the HFCC schedule at
http://www.hfcc.org/data/schedbybrc.php?seas=A12&broadc=RCI
which shows language ``FrA`` at 1900-2000 on 15235, while RCI`s own schedule reminds us it`s really on the air only for the first half hour and only in Arabic (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. Firedrake June 7, before 1300, incomplete survey:
15970, very good at 1257
15900, fair at 1257
15555, fair at 1259-1301+
After 1300:
15485, poor at 1309, het on hi side; just started here
15500, poor at 1319, ex 15485
15570, fair at 1319, ex-15555 before 1300
Before 1400:
17450, fair at 1346
17170, poor at 1346
16100, very good at 1346
15970, very good at 1347
15605, poor at 1348, het on lo side
15490, poor at 1348, het on lo side, ex-15500
14700, fair at 1348; none in the 13s, 12s, 11s
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GERMANY [non]. 9800, June 7 at 0523, BaBcoCk lullaby music loop over and over until 0529:30 switch to closing of English broadcast we could have been hearing via RWANDA on new 11800, and then 0530 opening Portuguese. The 0500-0600 English via Rwanda on 9800 terminated on 31 May, and was replaced by Portuguese at 0530-0600 via SOUTH AFRICA, says HFCC, but they turned the transmitter on way early.
Also heard the music loop on 9555, Vietnam via Sackville until 0529* with RCI IDs. Hard to tell if it was // 9800, since it`s so lo-key and repetitive, but unlikely to have been (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** JAPAN [non]. 11970, June 7 at 0500, NHK World Radio Japan opening in English via FRANCE is fortunately sufficient, as still missing from 6110 via Canada as it has been for the past week. Can`t hear it on scheduled 5975 via UK either; is that still on? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 6185, June 7 at 0455, XEPPM is back to just-barely-modulated, I think, unless they have already finished and just not turned off the transmitter yet, maintaining an S9+20 signal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NIGERIA. 15120, June 7 at 0516, VON with relatively good modulation (for them) but still with whine, US accented reporter about Syria, Russia offering Assad asylum and he can take 6 gigadollars with him?! She was ``Priscilla Hough? in Washington for Voice of Nigeria``, apparently the same stringer I heard on Vatican Radio`s 1200 broadcast! This was not on the air when last tuned by a few minutes after 0500; normally would be on by 0445.
Googling soon finds her as Priscilla Huff, with portrait:
http://www.featurestorynews.com/about/about/people.html
``Priscilla Huff is a correspondent in FSN's Washington Bureau, and joined the company from CNN in 2001. With extensive experience covering the US political scene, Priscilla invariably spends her days on Capitol Hill, at the US State Department or at the White House, chasing the major issues that matter to FSN’s clients. Her work for FSN also includes extensive travel across the United States - she's sauntered down the Red Carpet at the Oscars and waded through the muck in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Priscilla's reporting has literally spanned the breadth of the United States - from the Tsunami Center in Honolulu, Hawaii, to the halls of the United Nations in New York. A native Washingtonian, Priscilla previously worked for WBIS TV in New York, and the political website Voter.com.``
And here she tweeteth:

Some other Priscilla Huff is linkedin
New Jersey News also had an August 2009 batik story from her as with VOA News (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PHILIPPINES. 11720, June 6 at 1914, spirited dialog in non-English, fair signal. 25m is pretty much useless at summer middays, so this caught my ear; at first thought it was an African language, but must be V. of Philippines as scheduled 1730-1930 in Filipino. This frequency has made unexpected appearances before, and when it does is much better than // 15190 if at all (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 13570, June 6 at 1908, Brother Scare is still/again on WINB, apparently filling more available airtime than just weekday mornings. There had been a gap between 1845 or 1900 and 2030, depending on the true length of the 1830 show. WINB program schedule still hasn`t been updated to show BS at all. And the afternoon slot is not shown either at http://www.overcomerministry.org/
9385, June 7 at 1317 I notice that WWRB is still not on the air. Yesterday it came on at *1239. Today finally *1354 on 9385 with open carrier, cutting off and on the air several times; 1357 adding BS modulation but very low; by 1402 more or less normal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1620 monitoring: first broadcast confirmed on WRMI webcast, after 0330 UT Thursday June 7, but as usual totally blocked on 9955 by wall-of-noise jamming which only abates after 0500. Tnx a lot, Arnie! Further WRMI airings, some of which may escape jamming: Sat 0800, 1500, 1730, Sun 0800, 1530, 1730, Mon 0500, 1130. There are many more WRMI times on webcast only.
Also: Thu 2100 on WTWW 9479; UT Fri 0330v on WWRB 5050; UT Sat 0130v on Area 51 via WBCQ 5110v-CUSB (measured recently by Bernardini in Italy on 5109.78; by Büschel in Germany on 5109.766); UT Sun 0400 on WTWW 5755; Tue 0930 on HLR Germany 5980. Also on WRN via SiriusXM 120 Sat & Sun 1730, Sun 0830 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9370-, June 7 at 0458, WTJC modulation is back in whack for the moment. Still audible before 1300, but at 1318 no signal at all
Carmen D`Rocco linked from HCDX this visual display of the WTJC mess:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 15615, 12050, 11550, WEWN is missing from all frequencies, June 7 at 1312 and later. Propagation is poor, but not that poor, with e.g. WWCR still audible on 15825, later building up with sporadic E. Still no WEWNs at 1548 on 15610, 12050 or 11550 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
