Glenn Hauser logs November 4-5, 2013


** AUSTRIA. 6155, Nov 5 at 0637, Ö1 with classical music, fair signal but bothered by splash from 6165 Cuba, as the sole SW broadcast from ORF itself has shifted time an hour later to 0600-0715, 300 kW non-direxional (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 13780 and 15340, Nov 5 at 1402, no signals from RHC, expected to switch from lower bands now at 1400 instead of 1300. I happen to tune down the 13 MHz band and at 1403 encounter RHC on 13430!! For a few seconds before it cuts off, no time to pinpoint frequency, leaving nothing but CODAR. Ahá, must be mispunch for 15340, so I go there, and the carrier is already on, soon adding modulation. CRI relay 13740 is already on, and at 1405, RHC 13780 carrier has come on, then applying modulation, but cutting off and finally back on with both carrier and modulation.
At 1409 I survey all the RHC frequencies on two radios, to find which ones from the secondary site are an echo apart from the others: 11690, 17580, and JBA 9540 are the apart group, compared to 11750, 11760, 11860, 13780, 15230, 15340 which are synchronized with each other (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EAST TURKISTAN. 15220, Nov 5 at 0643, poor signal with song, thought maybe RRI, which it could have been in the previous hour, but HFCC shows at 06-07 it`s CRI French via Kashgar; not much else propagating on 19m except Rwanda; see GERMANY [non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EQUATORIAL GUINEA. 15190, Nov 4 at 2052, R. Africa, fair signal with gospel huxter, so remains active (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GERMANY [non]. 15700, Nov 5 at 0643, poor signal in English with `Science Week` report about meditation. It`s DW via RWANDA on new frequency at 06-07; similar signal on 15275, but it`s in Hausa for second half of hour after English until 0630 only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NIGERIA [and non]. 9690-, Nov 4 at 2053 two talk stations in non-English, too close to separate by LSB/USB, making low audible heterodyne. At 2057 one goes to a song; 2058 one goes off leaving Voice of Nigeria, in presumed Hausa, mentioning Nigeria, and now I can tell this is the one off-frequency to the lo side. Many recent reports of VON put it on 9689.9, and in August, Wolfgang Büschel measured it on 9689.893. A check at 2052 of 15120 finds the DRM already finished.
Aoki shows 2000-2130 Hausa via new Abuja site, but being off-frequency, it ought to be the old Ikorodu site. At 2100, the het is back, as 9690.0 has come back on. OMG, per Aoki, it`s *another* Hausa broadcast, great frequency management! From VOA at 2030-2100 M-F, switching from Issoudun, FRANCE, to Woofferton UK, in the middle of it. HFCC agrees on VOA, both due south, but of course nothing in HFCC ever from VON, which could be how IBB overlooked this little collision. But to manage frequencies effectively, one must go beyond here HFCC registrations and consult the real world of DX bulletins, if not turn on a radio. Aoki also shows Argentina on 9690, which I doubt is active, with European service languages same as 15345v (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 
** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 3215, Nov 5 at 0646, Brother Scare is still here on WWCR, contrary to October schedule, a few words ahead of weaker 3185 WWRB. In Nov sked he`s now on 3215 at 06-10 UT daily except Sundays (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5202-USB, Nov 5 at 1353, abbr`d calls, mainly 6TV along with 6SF and 6WD, discussing changing to a frequency with a four-character alfanumeric designator, so we could have no idea what it be; briefly going there to check propagation, then back here. Formal protocol; one even says ``wilco``. UDXF log in Oct 2012 by Jack Metcalfe says this is Texas US Army MARS, real calls starting with AAR6-.
Searching on AAR6TV turns up a lot of MARS traffic copied on a Russian utility forum:

** U S A. VOA collides with Voice of Nigeria, 9690, both in Hausa! See NIGERIA [and non]
** U S A. 5110v-CUSB, UT Tue Nov 5 at 0237 check, yes, WBCQ is still repeating `Marion`s Attic` during this hour now shifted (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** VATICAN. 6075, Nov 5 at 0638, VR Latin mass, now an hour later and on different frequencies; good here, but unheard on 5980, 7250, 9645 as it was at 0530 in A-13. Searching ``Lat`` in B-13 HFCC finds this is now supposed to be on 3975, 6075, 9645, 15595. Audible in English on 11625, so 9645 should have been propagating if on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ZANZIBAR. 11735, Nov 4 at 2058, nice music from ZBC, good signal with flutter, 2059 announcement, song with drums and violins, but pulled the plug at 2100:38*. Must tune in earlier for this one (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 1605 UT Nov 5
