Glenn Hauser logs November 28-29, 2012

** AUSTRALIA. 11650, Nov 29 at 0552 check, R. Australia is gone again from unscheduled frequency where it was heard 24 hours earlier; audible on 13630, and NZ 11725 is propagating OK. Wolfgang Büschel agrees that 11650 is not on now, and the frequencies scheduled to Asia at 0600 are 17750 and 21725; maybe one of those was missing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BRAZIL. 5970, Nov 29 at 0634, poor signal from a Brazilian, 0636 UT, timecheck for 4:36, i.e. UT -2; must be R. Itatiaia, Belo Horizonte MG. Are they all-night or just early risers during DST? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA [and non]. 17580, Nov 29 at 1356, RHC bothered by OTH radar, presumed from Cyprus.
13740, Nov 29 at 1401, CRI English relay has a bad squeal on both sidebands. This happens periodically, worse than usual today.
17480, Nov 29 at 2117, fair signal but undermodulated, Spanish YL 5-digit spy numbers with some echo; with local noise sources unabated, this amounted to the SSOB on 16m if not the OSOB, as RHC broadcasts were in their one-hour break; maybe same transmitter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CYPRUS. 17580-17605, Nov 29 at 1356, OTH radar pulses presumed from here, occupying space vacated by 17595 REE, but RHC is still on 17580 and the OTHR can even be heard mixing on 17580 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EAST TURKISTAN. 9600, Nov 28 at 2149, American accented discussion of studies abroad, fair with flutter, discussing costs in RMB. Of course, it`s yet another CRI overkill frequency, 308 degrees from Kashgar (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 960, Nov 29 at 0600 UT, local KGWA Enid again in dead air Fox-hole, and dominant understation with carrier nulled is music in Spanish; 0602 mentions ``Ciudad Camargo, Chihuahua``, so I am sure it is an ID and not from XEK Nuevo Laredo this time, but the CCCh station on 960, XEFAMA! 0603 onward with operetta of operatic quality singing:
``960 XEFAMA Radio Fama, La Grandota + FM 97.5 Cd. Camargo, Chih. 10,000 1,000`` per Cantú. Two XEs down and 11 to go on 960. Grandota means the big one. Imagine what calls US stations could display with five or even six letters! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 1030, Nov 29 at 0627 UT all I catch is a timecheck in Spanish for 11-27, before music loses to CCI, so that rules out US stations, and I am hoping there is only one Mexican in UT -7; but there are two per Cantú:
1030 XEYC Radio Fórmula Cd. Juárez, Chih. 5,000 500
1030 XEMPM Exa FM + FM 98.9 Los Mochis, Sin. 10,000 1,000
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOMALILAND. 7120, Nov 29 at 1346, poor signal, with music and announcement seems in Somali, not English; some SSB and CW QRhaM. It`s still neat to be hearing R. Hargeisa at all by longpath at this hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SPAIN [non]. 9630, Nov 29 at 0553, REE in AM back on this frequency, playing, of all things, the classic Cole Porter song from 1934, ``You`re the Top`` (in English). Fortunately, not too strong vs doomed neighbor CBC 9625.
Until the drastic cuts to NAm as of Nov 26, 9675 was the CR relay frequency northward until 0600, sometimes on alternate 9630 instead; now I am not hearing REE on 3350 which had been running until 0600, let alone 9675. Ivo Ivanov confirms that 3350 has been replaced by 9630, now aimed at S America. Still on at 0600 with timesignal, IDs and continuing a bit longer before off by 0605 recheck. There may be some further adjustments to REE`s schedule, rather than just cutting off numerous transmissions.
9765, Nov 29 at 1352, fair signal from REE Costa Rica, still on here southwards after deleting 15170 northwards; as usual a few sex behind // 21610 direct; and still at 1417 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also CYPRUS
** U K [non]. 7400, Nov 29 at 1344, B-B-C- chimes weakly heard, 1345 opening Burmese as scheduled, 100 kW, 340 degrees from SINGAPORE. The only BBC broadcast on 7400 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 12105, Nov 28 at 2138, WTWW-3 is on in French, and so is 9990, WTWW-2 with Brother Scare, as well as 9479 WTWW-1 with SFAW. It`s been unusual for all of them to be on at once, instead of one plus two or three (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1645 monitoring: ready just in time for first airing Thursday Nov 29 at 2200 on WTWW-1 9479. Next:
UT Friday at 0430v on WWRB 3195 and 5050 too if like last week
UT Saturday at 0230v on Area 51 via WBCQ 5110v-CUSB
Saturday 0900, 1600, 1830, Sunday 0900, 1630, Monday 0530, Tuesday 1200 on WRMI 9955
Saturday 0630 on HLR 7265; 1630 on HLR 6190 (please confirm, and note whether these frequencies are still being jammed)
UT Sunday 0500 on WTWW-1 5830; also maybe sometime early UT Sunday on WTWW-2 5085 as three weeks ago at 0547
Saturday 1830 UT on WRN via SiriusXM channel 120
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 529, Nov 29 at 0612, the beacon at WWRB, Morrison TN, is audible with LYQ ID on MCW aside Cuba 530; haven`t heard it much since reactivation a few weeks ago as in DXLD 12-44, and suspect it is still sporadic.
Terry Krueger in FL also heard it and looked up the real callsign: WQHL966, and says ``at FCC coordinates: 35 37' 30.0" N, 86 0' 54.0" W. Google 6755 Shady Grove Road, Morrison, TN, and you’ll see the small airstrip once you move around a bit`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1670, Nov 29 at 0613 UT, jazzy Xmas music, 0614 ID as WTDY-AM, then ``I`ll Be Home for Xmas``. Also after sunrise here at 1340, more Xmas music and ID as WTDY FM and AM. So much for their news/talk format which was after all ``temporary duty``; presumably will be something else once this holiday stunt is over. And not bad for battery power from Ray O Vac Lane in Madison WI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 11700, Nov 28 at 2141, good open carrier but with flutter; most likely R. Taiwan International or the jammer standing by for its 22-24 broadcast (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
