Glenn Hauser logs April 3-4, 2016

** CUBA. 17580 & 17730, April 4 at 1317, RHCs are by far the SSOBs, but also both with big hum and modulation breakup. Wiggle that patchcord! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KOREA NORTH [non]. 5935, Monday April 4 at 1301, YL in Chinese with typical Shiokaze piano accompaniment, S7 fading to S5, so still getting wind of Sea Breeze from JAPAN (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MADAGASCAR. 17640, April 4 at 1800-1804+, no signal from MWV, a.k.a. African Pathways Radio. 16m is working well enough from Europe at least, e.g. 17620 France. Here`s why, from a reply received by Wendel Craighead:
``Henry Huffard, Host, says my QSL is on its way. But I can no longer hear this station, and Mr. Huffard explains why. "Unfortunately, in our fifth day of operations, a defective part shut us down - so you will not be able to receive us now. Everything at the station is new and under warranty so it is just a matter of getting the part to Madagascar and having it installed. We will let you know when we resume operations."`` (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MALAYSIA. 6050.030, April 4 at 1305, very poor S4 signal with music, talk, presumed Asyik FM, which recently reactivated SW. A biday ago, Ron Howard had it on a slightly different but still plus offset: ``6050.05, Asyik FM via RTM, 1140, April 2. Seems they have straightened out their problems and are now back to normal transmissions; in vernacular and pop songs; singing jingle IDs`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU. 5980, April 4 until 0104:13.5* approx., new reset autocutoff time of R. Chaski, expected to recess ~6+ seconds later per day for the next months to come. (BTW, if one could axually hear the programming, it would be not only Red Radio Integridad, but also Radio Transmundial via RRI via Chaski, as reported by Claudio Galaz and Daniel Wyllyans) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U A E. 13820.127, April 4 at 1321, very poor tonal but not Chinese talk at S1, and all the Cuban jamming has now cleared out, not even residual pulses, piling up on 13605 Radio Martà instead. So what`s scheduled now, so far off-frequency? Of course! It`s the Dhabbaya UAE site, now with IBB in Burmese, 1230-1330, 500 kW, 85 degrees. I wonder if UAE architects and builders are any more accurate with their skyscrapers? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [non]. 9815, April 4 at 0517, American English report about medical news, fair signal, so is it CRI or DW? No, really VOA scheduled via BOTSWANA at 0400-0530, but as far as A16 HFCC knows, it`s in Kinyarwanda, not English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1819 monitoring: confirmed Sunday April 3 after 2330 on WBCQ, 9330.0-CUSB, fair. Also confirmed UT Monday April 3 at 0300 on Area 51 webcast, and at 0324 check on WBCQ 5129.735-AM, sufficient; also confirmed at 0335 check on WRMI 9955, fair, no jamming. Next:
Mon 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 1100 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Tue 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Wed 1315.5 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 2100 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Wed 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. 9955, UT Mon April 4 at 0515, WRMI good with Mideast pop music, which seems to be regular now before switching to Brother HyStairical at 0600. More eclectic music instead of BS or anything else:
11580, April 4 at 1333, nice S9+10, Andean tune with guitar, quena, and a low-pitched wind instrument â almost like a didgeridoo, with thunder SFX at start and finish; 1337 on to a song with guitar, gutteral Slavic-like language? 1341 quite a contrast, one of the perennials: ``Up, Up & Away`` in English.
At 1349 it`s getting splashed from 11585, which would be KTWR GUAM starting at 1345, despite aiming away at 290 degrees; so need LSB tuning for WRMI. More music past 1400, and even past 1500 instead of BS. And totally different than what`s playing on 9955.
9955, April 4 at 1351, this WRMI is already in eclectic world music, tho programming was normal earlier in this hour; 1359 Zanotti ID competing with ACI from 9950, Radio Free Asia opening in Vietnamese, despite aiming due westward from Tinian; and on 9955 more world music, for rest of hour, and still more after 1500, totally different than what`s playing on 11580. Where`s our BS?? Everywhere else on WRMI and other US SW frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5050, April 4 at 0028, telco-quality audio from unknown gospel huxter on WWRB, about warfare among Christians over doctrine. No more usage of 3195? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 11435-USB, April 4 at 1330, pileup of competing talkers, presumed Indonesian QSO pirates, strongest here; also some weak singing on 11430, and algo on 11455 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 15111.0-USB, April 4 at 1326, INTRUDERS, very poor 2-way, tentatively in colloquial Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 17855, April 4 at 1315, JBA carrier when little but Cuba is making it on 16m --- nothing scheduled now, but suspect REE SPAIN testing for later broadcast starting at 1800 (when it`s loud and clear as usual today). If one believed the lies Russia tells the HFCC, 17855 is also used by Khabarovsk at 01-06; and CRI English Beijing has it at other dayparts (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 1826 UT April 4
