Glenn Hauser logs March 1, 2016

** GREECE. 9935, March 1 at 0325, ERT whine level above the modulation, while 9420 is S9 with Greek talk in the clear (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** UGANDA [non]. 5910.0, UT Tue March 1 at 0258, het between carrier and AlcaravÃn Radio, COLOMBIA, which is off-frequency to about 5910.23. I`m checking for the next scheduled broadcast of anti-Museveni clandestine Radio Lead Africa Media, as explained in previous report. Until 0300 timecheck for 10 pm, HJDH has been playing music, but now switches to continuous talk in Spanish, presumably predicating (sermon).
This makes it extremely tough to copy RLAM, which is about equal level with 100 kW from SOUTH AFRICA toward Uganda, combined meter reading in AM mode being S9+10. It starts talking at 0301, in non-English language. Sounds rather like Swahili, but would not be surprised if it is the more politically correct Luganda. They are too close to separate completely, but I try on the NRD-545 with LSB, bandwidth 1.20 kHz, PBS of 0.35 kHz, notch filter, which makes the most ``readable`` audio. Both stations are still nothing but talk at further chex 0308, 0314, 0324. Never can detect any English from RLAM as others have reported; maybe later in the hour, but I don`t monitor any further tonight. Let`s hope HJDH happens to be off next time.
As of 15+ hours later, I don`t see *any* reports of others trying to monitor this as I called for in my previous report. This service requires careful attention to the publicized schedule, since broadcasts are not daily, but certain days of week at certain times on different frequencies. HFCC registrations and info on their Facebook do not match completely, but here`s what`s possibly to be expected ongoing, organized by day of week:
Wed 0500-0600 15455
Thu 0500-0600 15455
Fri 0300-0400 5910
Sat 0500-0700 15310
Sat 1700-1800 9410
Sat 1900-2100 9430
Sun 0500-0700 9410
Sun 1000-1200 17820 [? in January, anyway]
Sun 1700-1800 9410
Sun 1900-2100 9430 [or continuous 1700-2100?]
Mon 0300-0400 5910
Tue 0300-0400 5910
Others were hearing the weekend broadcast on 9430 until 2100, in English after 2045. Best to keep checking

but which hasn`t been updated lately. Beware of horrible photos of mutilated bodies (but that`s about Burundi). This goes back to last June also about a Radio Munansi - online only? And lots of YouTube linx back at least to December 2014. Both these are all in English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 2097.3-CW, March 1 at 0644, beacon A every 10 seconds is quite readable, in fact better than usual, despite storm noise level from further south in OK. I`ve heard it on several other tries unlogged, so seems to be reliable, tho supposedly only 15 watts from Quartzsite AZ. This time it`s on the R75 with E-W longwire (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 13565, March 1 at 1443, K6FRC Hifer beacon is barely audible, from California; haven`t heard him in some time.
13558, March 1 at 1446, MTI beacon is just barely audible, even weaker than K6FRC, and have to listen for a while to be sure of correct copy of the very slow Morse code ID. It`s from Stone Mountain GA. Harold Frodge recently had it on 13557.2, and back in Oct on 13555.6, 13556.9; January 2015 on 13557, so maybe it does vary
My last logs of MTI were on 13558 approx., July 2, 3, 2015, as in DXLD 15-27 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1814 monitoring: confirmed UT Tuesday March 1 at 0030 on WBCQ 9330-, CUSB, good. Next:
Wed 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Wed 1415.5 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 2200 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Thu 0030 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 3840-LSB, March 1 at 0649, QSO proceeds despite ``jamming`` consisting of hi-pitched artificial voice, ``singing``, maybe with autotune processing. 0652 they leave it to the jammer, which then quits at 0655 and the QSO resumes. One of the victims is in Colorado and DFs it as from his southwest, i.e. AZ or southern CA. Says jamming has been going on for 30 minutes. 3840 seems to be a favorite frequency on 80m for such nonsense (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 1708 UT March 1
