Glenn Hauser logs January 12-13, 2013

** BRAZIL. 11780, Jan 13 at 0225, RNA/RNB is missing except for a noise blob, and furthermore there is a wideband noise level roughly 11.3 to 11.8 MHz, which I suspect is from the 11780 transmitter wildly manfunxioning (while 6180 is OK). The wideband noise on 25 m was first reported at 0150 by Gilles Letourneau, Montréal to the DXLD yg, around 11450-11900, peaking 11600-11650 and then heard by several others, and Gilles says it stopped at 0441. Jorge Freitas in Brasil says 11780 was still off the air at 1450 Jan 13. I had quickly forwarded this info to the radioescutas group the night before where someone with RNB may have seen it, and killed the transmission (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. 9530, Sunday Jan 13 at 1320, western classical music, orchestra with clarinet, not often heard from CNR1 jammers, but better than Firedrake or hyper even echoey Chitalk all the time. Then heard // on many other frequencies, some perhaps not jammers, but I`m not going to bother to sort them out: 7445, 7310, 7295, 6175, 6125, 6085, 6045, 6030; Chinese announcement at 1328, and by 1340 also on 15265 playing Strauss waltz. Despite this propagation, no Firedrake found 12-18 MHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 6010, UT Sunday Jan 13 at 0705, Radío Havano Kubo weekly Esperanto is reconfirmed, once all the other frequencies have closed. Travelog about Camagüey; it seems the Esperanto term for airport is flughaveno.
11845, Jan 13 at 1403, lite pulse jamming from the incompetent DentroCuban Jamming Command, on a frequency occupied by R. Martí only during the A-seasons, as here we are at the midpoint of B-12 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** FRANCE. 7390, Jan 13 at 0657, German cabaret music, but 0659 French announcement and off at 0700*, i.e. RFI, currently scheduled 04-07, but shifting azimuths each hour, 130-160-185 degrees (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GREECE. 7475, Jan 13 at 0616 rock music, so must be R. Philia in service this time, since not // 9420 VOG with Orthochanting as usual on Sunday mornings. Then at 0632 on 7475, Spanish ID for R. Filía, announcing only FM and AM frequencies, i.e. ``665`` instead of correct 666 due to institutionalized superstition. Brief Spanish segment was a travel talk about ski areas (in Greece?!), and another Spanish would be on tomorrow at 9 am; 0636.6 said ``adiós``, and on to music fill. Ivo Ivanov says Spanish is Sat & Sun at 0630-0700, while other days it`s a full hour of Albanian from 0600. Meanwhile, third transmitter was JBA on 11645 at 0632, but enough to confirm it was // 9420, not 7475. At 0700, 7475 had weakened considerably as R. Filia shifted into German, which is also Sat/Sun only; while 9420 remained strong with the Greek Orthodox concert past 0723 when I expired (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** INDIA. 9425, Jan 13 at 1319, AIR IS is very poor, 1320 into ``Vande Mataram`` theme. This is the National Channel from Delhi opening its all-night service, registered in HFCC to start at 1305 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** IRAN. 15150, Jan 13 at 1332, VIRI IS is playing in extended version, when normally it would be time for Qur`an at the start of a transmission. Fair with flutter, still at 1339, but gone at next check 1349. The only IRIB scheduled on 15150 is Chinese at 1200-1300, 500 kW, 65 degrees from Kamalabad, where they must have been a tad late turning off the transmitter, with the program feed from Tehran thus occupied (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** JAPAN [non]. 11960, Jan 12 at 2149, VP signal here; I can make out a song, some Japanese, and then Portuguese, so probably in that learn-a-song language lesson segment, NHK World Rádio Japão has finally moved out from under CUBA which usurped original B-12 frequency 11880, also in Portuguese at 2130. This had not been accomplished as of Jan 10, some two weeks after the change was registered, but may have been Jan 11, unchecked then. This GUIANA FRENCH relay is much weaker than expected here, even considering it`s off the back, but no doubt the Brazilians can finally hear it well without QubaRM (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KURDISTAN [non]. 11510, Sunday Jan 13 at 1415-1455+, another lovely concert of Kurdish music, nary an announcement; fair signal with some flutter, and the occasional IAD. Still registered in HFCC by BRB as SMF = ``Simferopol, Ukraine`` a site which does not exist. Why does Ludo do it?? Ivo Ivanov says it`s really via KCH = Grigoriopol, PRIDNESTROVYE (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1020, Jan 12 at 2234 UT, KOKP Perry trying to carry Fox Sports Radio, has severe audio breakups, unlistenable; this Saturday afternoon it is not // unscathed 1580 KOKB Blackwell, as these sibling stations separate when there are different sillyballgames to carry.
1020, Jan 13 at 1355 UT, KOKP audio is still/again cutting up, with KMMQ Nebraska, clear in its null, see U S A (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TAIWAN [non]. 15440, Jan 12 at 2220, RTI via WYFR in English but with crackling audio breakup, while // 6115 is OK. Therefore it is a problem at WYFR, like loose antenna wire connexions or feedline shorting? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1651 monitoring: confirmed on WTWW-1 5830, UT Sunday Jan 13 at 0500, excellent signal this time, but automation is currently set to start playback about 15 sex early, meaning the canned hourtop ID interrupts our billboard again. Further chances, on WRMI 9955: Monday 0530, Tuesday 1200 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5050, Jan 12 at 2209, surprised to hear Brother Scare here, must be WWRB firing up this frequency early, but NOT synched with 9370, the dedicated BS daytime frequency. However, one semi-minute later, 5050 replaces BS with some band music, then introduxion of by a gospel huxter about how to justify windstorms, rain and floods as Acts of God (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5085, Jan 13 at 0230, WTWW-2 is on again this UT Sunday, Ted Randall QSO show with some ham commenting on antennas vs condo associations, so find a remote location to operate. 0621 next check, it`s still on, Ted now interviewing someone about how great the Dramatized Word of God is in languages as on WTWW-3 12105. 5085 off sometime before my 0705 final check. I don`t think so, but if anyone notice Ted playing WORLD OF RADIO anytime on Saturday evenings, please inform me (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 750, Jan 12 at 2238 UT, ad for US Carpet in Chicago, in Ukrainian, with phone numbers except switching to English to pronounce area code 773, why?? That applies to the city of Chicago/suburbs outside the downtown/Loop. Of course, it`s 15 kW daytimer WNDZ Portage IN. It must have signed off at 2245, legal sunset in January. The only PSSA it`s authorized is a 15-minute extension in December from sunset 2215 to 2230 UT with 10 watts (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1020, Jan 13 at 1355 UT, ``La Nueva 10-20`` by SHVA, Mexican music but not // 930 WKY which has happened before; in null of breaking-up semi-local KOKP Perry OK, q.v. This is KMMQ Plattsmouth NE (Omaha mercado) (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. Now that WCKL`s odd-numbered SW harmonics of MW 560 from Catskill NY have been heard by several in the northeast --- Dave Valko in PA, Kraig Krist in VA, Jim Renfrew and John Herkimer in NY, Stephen Wood and Jim Balle in MA, both day and night on 3920, 5040, 6160, I am looking for it too, but no luck so far, such as circa 2200 UT Dec 12. 6160 heard by Kraig vs Canada, is the eleventh harmonic already, so I also checked x13 = 7280 and x15 = 8400. The probably stronger third harmonic is probably blocked by fundamentally 1680 stations.
As I told Dave, who first inquired about it as an unID January 8, Wikipedia says WCKL is mostly off the air, fired up for a few days a year to keep license active. No specific program schedule, and the listen live doesn`t work at http://familybroadcasting.net/
Legal FCC sunrise and sunset for WCKL in January are 1230 and 2145 UT. Stephen Wood was hearing 3920 at 0145 UT Jan 11, so besides radiating all these harmonix, it`s probably not observing day/night power cut either from 1000 to 43 watts (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic carriers all over the place, UT Jan 13 at 0233 UT, first noticed on 1521, then stepping 9 kHz down the entire band, found more: 1215, 1089, 1008, 945, 909, 882, 864, 855, 837, 747, 693, 684, 675, 612, 603, 594, 531. 693 was strongest but not enough for any audio. No doubt some others were obscured by TVI from the neighbors.
Another check at 0640: 1089, 1215; and at 0642-0647: 675, 684, 693, 738, 747, 774, 855, 882, 909, 945, 1044, 1557.
And standing out with a higher-pitched het against the BFO was 1314+ at 0642. Is some European significantly off-frequency there? Not as of last August according to
http://www.myradiobase.de/mediumwave/mwoffset.txt
Possibly a local spoiler (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 14653.5-SSB, Jan 13 at 1344, 2-way in Spanish mentioning kilos and vuelos, apparently narco flight communications (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
