** BRAZIL. 11780, Aug 6 at 0144 check, RNA *without any spurs*!!! Fingers crossed that they`ve finally rid them, but we know they`ll be back eventually unless engineers keep on top of the situation (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 5990, Aug 6 at 0136, tonight`s SNAFU at RHC: running this frequency in English instead of 6000, // 6165; while 5040, 6060, 6070, 6270 are properly in Spanish. 5990 normally carries CRI relay until 0057v*. By 0314 recheck, English has been moved back to 6000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT [and non]. 11710.0, Aug 6 at 0130, R. Cairo Spanish has bigsig but open carrier/dead air, or rather a trace of modulation, vs het on hi side from Argentina with modulation in Japanese.
12070, Aug 6 at 0133, R. Cairo Spanish making big unreadable racket with hum but spreading only 12065-12075.
9315, Aug 6 at 0133, the third R. Cairo Spanish transmitter is off.
9965, Aug 6 at 0134, R. Cairo Arabic is almost dead air, more bits of modulation than on 11710. Something is always wrong at R. Cairo but what each of these four frequencies will do from one night to the next is unpredictable (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** FRANCE [and non]. 15300 // 13740, Aug 5 at 1815, RFI confirmed still active on SW in French, poor signals; while another listed channel, 17850, is of course occupied by SPAIN, its best daytime frequency incidentally in North America, tho it was a lot better before they closed Costa Rica. Kai Ludwig and Stephen Cooper also heard some RFI.
Ivo Ivanov replies, Aug 5: ``RFI at 1800 UT:
9800 MEY 100 kW / 350 deg to WCAf French, confirmed
11795 ISS 500 kW / 055 deg to EaEu Russian, confirmed
11995 ISS 500 kW / 170 deg to CeAf French, confirmed
13620 ISS 500 kW / 080 deg to CeAs Russian, confirmed
13740 ISS 500 kW / 185 deg to WeAf French, confirmed
15300 ISS 500 kW / 185 deg to NWAf French, confirmed
17850 ISS 500 kW / 153 deg to CeAf French, confirmed, co-ch REE Spanish
Full A-14 schedule may be found here``
And Mauno Ritola, Finland says ``check the schedule in
All listed for 1930: 9800, 11995 13740 and 15300 kHz are there. 73, Mauno`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GREECE. 9935 // 9420, Aug 6 at 0143, ERTOPen on again tonight with VG signals during Greek music // very poor 15630 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** IRAN. 11760, Aug 6 at 0145, VIRI Spanish barely audible way under RHC co-channel, but can make it // 9860 poor but clear, as at 0146 a correspondent from Radio Nacional de Venezuela is outroing a report for VIRI about Israel, no doubt negative. Kindred spirits, all. Into music.
Still nothing on 12025, but I see in latest HFCC of Aug 3 that both 11760 and 12025 are registered with identical parameters for the entire A-14 season, obviously intended as alternates, so what are they waiting for?? 500 kW, 274 degrees from Kamalabad at 0020-0220 to CIRAF 11-15, no slew, antenna type 215 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6770, Aug 6 at 0129 again a JBA AM carrier, presumed old-time-radio pirate, as also detected 24 hours earlier; and Chris Smolinski in Maryland confirms they are active again:
``Glenn, The presumed pirate Old Time Radio is back on 6770. I'm hearing it at 2352z. First logged at 2257z [Aug 5]: http://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,17996.0.html
Chris Smolinski, Black Cat Systems``. And also heard by DXLD yg members: Dave Hughes in Kansas City: ``Best reception of this OTR pirate tonight at 0200 UT [Aug 6]. This guy is usually JBA here in KC but aside from some ute QRM it is coming in pretty well tonight. 6770 AM``. And by John Figliozzi in Halfmoon at 0225 UT Aug 6: ``Got it here in upstate NY. Can tell it's playing a comedy but can't make out but a few words. Almost sounds like it's being blanketed by jamming. Steady signal, though, at about S8`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. Has anyone heard Station YHWH lately? I haven`t run across him since July 19, and last logs we`ve seen as in DXLD 14-30 were on 15655, July 20. Perhaps we shall shortly be seeing an FCC NAL, as YHWH was certainly asking for it, with extensive schedule on multiple frequencies; or vacation time (Glenn Hauser, OK, August 6, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OMAN. 15140, Aug 6 at 0141, JBA carrier, presumed RSO since it`s missing again from proper channel 9500 (only WTWW splash from 9475), and not on 15355 either (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 7615-USB, Aug 6 at 0149, the Civil Air Patrol net heard again, very formal with ``sirs``, one guy asking another for his e-mail address, which is then spelled out. So I send him a report, surprise! One or both make beeps at end of transmissions. The one requesting the e-mail is stronger, Blue Mesa 588, then doing a radio check with another. See previous reports on CAP 7615 in DXLDs 14-17 and 14-13 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9370, Aug 6 at 0139, WWRB BS still on here with bigsig, not 5050, while WWRB own programming is on much weaker 3185 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9475, Aug 6 at 0141, WTWW-1 PPP with humbuzz and same pitch splash audibly spreading out as far as 9450-9500 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
