Glenn Hauser logs May 31-June 1, 2012

** BRAZIL. 6180, June 1 at 0548, RNA is still missing, but quite good on 11780 at 0556 with Brazilian music, usual personable madrugada DJ talking about saudade (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CANADA. A little more Es analog TVDX ensued after the opening in previous report, May 31, UT:
1927 on 2, hearing a video het on the audio. Opening has moved westward and now peaking from NNW. Looks like a soap opera, brief glimpses. Intermittent video and audio QRM matching local KOFM 103.1 country music. Antenna is now pointing right thru KOFM transmitter site; altho an FM filter is installed in my antenna amp. Since it goes on and off briefly, obviously an overload/mix with some 2-way VHF transmitter in the area.
1936 on 2, NIVEA skin care ad
1956 on 3, CAA ad and another one // ch 5, CCI [Canadian Auto Ass`n]
1958 on 3, CBC `Saturday Cinema` promo. Then program has studio audience cheering, and another one with same starts at 2000
2022 on 3, promo for http://cbc.ca/video where episodes are freely available (outside Canada too? Haven`t tried).
Surely it`s one of two SK transmitters, as there are none on 3 now in MB or AB: CBKT7 in Warmley, 100 kW, more likely than further and weaker CBCP-TV-3 in Ponteix, 18.8 kW, both of which eventually repeat CBKT ch 9 in Regina (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. Firedrake June 1, before 1300, a rapid scan:
16700, very good at 1258
16100, poor at 1258
15940, very good at 1259
15900, very good at 1259
15550, good at 1259
14950, very good at 1258
14800, fair at 1258. None in the 17s, 13s, 12s
11500, fair at 1259 and earlier
After 1300:
15485, fair at 1313, het on hi side
15560, good at 1313
Before 1400:
14950, poor-fair at 1346; none in the 12s, 13s
15490, good at 1347, het on lo side; cf 15485 earlier
16980, very good at 1349
17100, poor at 1351
17250, poor at 1351

** CHINA. 17398-USB, June 1 at 1302, YL in Chinesish, sounds like a broadcast, one-way rather than two-way, but stops at 1304; after that around 1306, on & off in contacts, other side not heard, no doubt duplex. Among several other coastal stations around the world, Klingenfuss` 2002 SW Frequency Guide shows XSQ, Guangzhou Radio on 17398, and this is/was Channel 1653, QSX on 16516.0.
A recent log in the UDXF yg by Vincent Leclerc, F5OIH, agrees:
``17398.0 XSQ: CHN Guangzhou Radio 1300 SSB Chinese Maritime info 08042012 VL`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CONGO. 6115, June 1 at 0600, looking for R. Congo, Brazzaville, which has been confirmed by Jorge Freitas, Bahia, as active here sometimes around morning sign-on, but undermodulated: when MALI [q.v.] is in with good strength on 5995, all I can detect is a JBA carrier on 6115, and very much bothered by splash and overload from Cuba on 6125 which is on the air for another hour. It`ll take a lot of luck and max propagation to audiblize Congo here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EQUATORIAL GUINEA. 15190, June 1 at 0552, R. Africa, good signal with gospel huxter in Amerenglish alleging that Adam & Eve, humanity and everything were created six kiloyears ago. Thus faith = stupidity (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GERMANY [non]. 15595, June 1 at 1356, Farsi talk mentions ``social media``, seemingly an English term; fair signal but QRM de WEWN garbage spur on 15597 (2 x 9 kHz away from 15615). 1358 a sounder, 1359, Deutsche Welle contact info, mentions Afghanistan, Kabul, so suspect it`s really Dari, the Persian version in that country. 1400 ID and into another language, presumably Pashto.
If it`s DW, it can`t be transmitted from Germany, but I never would have guessed the transmitter site until uplooked in today`s HFCC: SINGAPORE! Says 250 kW, due northwest, at 1330-1400 in Prs [sic], 1400-1430 in Pus [sic]. Aoki agrees with me that it`s really Dari into Pashto; plus Urdu at 1430-1500 on same parameters (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** JAPAN [non]. 6120, June 1 at 1225, NHKWorld Radio Japan English via CANADA is still fairly audible despite what I said about it being 4 hours after Sackville sunrise, but 9 MHz would certainly be much better, and it is fading out at conclusion of `Radio Japan Focus`, a ``Let`s cook Japanese`` segment about ramen (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MALI. 5995, June 1 at 0549, good signal with open carrier, raising our hopes of hearing ORTM [WRTH does not show any name or ID for this in Arabic], whoever is running it at the moment. By 0556 some barely modulated strumming is heard, IS or prélude? 0558 military band with lots of stomping, presumed NA; 0559 YL in JBM French, only made out one word, ``kilohertz``. O well, carrier is half the battle (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MAURITANIA. 7245, June 1 at *0602, IGIM has just cut on with soporific morning chants in progress (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 5890, June 1 at 0535 as I tune across WWCR, Brother Scare is back talking about some of his outlets, including WTHE in Mineola, and on AM in Moscow, which I don`t find on his website list of AM stations, altho it does include:
``KTLA 690 AM Oklahoma City, OK Noon Sunday Central``
which is correct, except it`s really KTLR on 890! As in Tyler.
On SW he mentions what we know are some recently-started ARMENIA relays, without saying wherefrom, and they are still not in HFCC: 16-18 UTC on 15425, 00-03 on 15300 (??) both to India, which he says adds up to 4 hours a day. 19-22 to Europe/ME on 9400; 04-07 to Africa on 15750. He also thinx WBCQ is still on 7415. As usual, this only resembles vaguely what is on his TOM homepage, which I sic-copy here in all its illogical, jumbled, disorganized and misspelt glory:
``WWRB 3185 6 Pm-9Am Sun-Sat
WWCR 5890 1 Am-6Am Daily
WBCQ 7490 8 Pm-11Pm Daily
AFRICA 7590 18:00-22:00UTC Saturday

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1619 monitoring: confirmed Thursday May 31 at 2100 on WTWW 9479, excellent signal. Also UT Friday June 1 starting at 0332 on WWRB 5050; before that at least a minute of dead air except for hum.
Next: UT Sat 0130v on Area 51 via WBCQ 5110v-CUSB; UT Sun 0400 on WTWW 5755. On WRMI 9955: Sat 0800, 1500, 1730; Sun 0800, 1530, 1730; Mon 0500, 1130.
The WRMI program grid has now been updated as of May 31. Jeff White says there have only been a couple of changes. No changes for WOR timings (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
