Glenn Hauser logs May 6-7, 2012

** CANADA. 6190, May 7 at 0524, CRI English is back here, after Sackville having put it by mistake on 6080, almost 24 hours earlier, the frequency which is supposed to quit at 0500.
9555, May 7 at 0527, tune-in to open carrier; then 0527:45 BaBcoCk fill music loop plays a couple times, 0529 RCI IS, French and English ID loop a couple times, and off, i.e. traditional tail of Vietnam relay (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. Firedrake May 7, circa 1330:
17510, fair until 1330*. I was tuning by feel and had not looked at the dial before this went off, but somewhere in this range, and fits for listed BBC Uzbek via Cyprus at 1300-1330
17170, good at 1330; none in the 18s
16100, good at 1330
15900, poor-fair at 1331
15570, good at 1332
14950, very good at 1334
14700, very good at 1334; none in the 13s
12600, very good at 1335; none in the 11s, 10s
After 1400:
15605, good at 1406; none in the 17s, 16s, 14s, 13s
12600, fair at 1414
** CUBA [and non]. 11840, May 7 at 0508, RHC Spanish is still running late after scheduled 0500*. 9810 however is off clearing Vatican in Scandinavian.
9790, May 7 at 0510, open carrier, Cuban relay transmitter of CRI has also not been turned off after 0500, and now it`s atop R. Nederland in Dutch via Wertachtal.
7405 and 6030, May 7 at 0513 and 0522, wall-of-noise jamming in still running full-bore against nothing in weekly Monday silent period of R. Martí.
6050, May 7 at 0518, RHC, Arnie is quoting Thomas Giella on the solar cycle, including ``I don`t know what I`m talking about``.
5040, May 7 at 0523, RHC open carrier still on here, but 11840 is off (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** HAWAII. 10000, May 7 at 1245, after WWVH ID just before WWV, just before minutetop, NO propagation minute as scheduled at :45; missing again. I hope NIST isn`t as slipshod about other matters (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** JAPAN [and non]. 6080 Spanish via Bonaire, and 6110 English via Sackville, UT Monday May 7 at 0515, NHK World Radio Japan is again running parallel programming: same theme music and ``Easy Japanese`` lesson, both featuring main character ``Kwan`` (?) from Vietnam. Spanish also audible on 6250, leapfrog over Bonaire Dutch 6165. 24 hours earlier, 6080 must have been a mess with Sackville also on there by mistake; see CANADA.
11815, May 7 at 1247, nice M&W duet in German, sounds like a lament, then Japanese announcement from NHK. Could it be a tip o` the helmet to former ally Nazi Germany? As RA `Today in History` had just reminded us, this is V-E Day (or May 8, or May 9, depending). Meanwhile, a Basque undercurrent from Costa Rica (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. A bit of sporadic-E analog TV DX reaching channel 2, May 6:
1902 UT, some video fades in from south; 1909 it`s fútbol; 1915 a movie, maybe net-5; brief re-appearances during rest of hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SPAIN [and non]. 17595 direct and 11880 via COSTA RICA, May 7 the `Españoles en la Mar` pen-hour 1305-1355 was occupied by a very interesting documentary about the early XVI century age of exploration and conquest, mainly in the Pacific, ``the Spanish lake`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SUDAN SOUTH [non]. 15725, May 7 at 0504, JBA signal with music and talk, presumed V. of South Sudan Revolutionary Radio rather than Pakistan (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U K. 9915, May 7 at 0511, BBCWS in Arabic this time has OK modulation, but heavy flutter. Not the kind of propagation disturbance one would expect hereward, so now I am wondering if Skelton and Woofferton are that far apart in frequency to cause such a SAH, as both are scheduled during this hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [non]. 15265, May 7 at 1408, `VOA Music Mix` very poor on new frequency, soon confirmed as such by // 15580 and 17530, both São Tomé. HFCC shows this as a new daily frequency effective 9 May, but obviously already in use, 100 kW, 100 degrees from SÃO TOMÉ. This presumably trumps the still-listed usage of 15265 weekends only at 1430-1500 by MBR Issoudun thru 27 Oct. Also shows another hour 15-16 of IBB English via Wertachtal, 250 kW, 180 degrees, as from 9 May (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 11715+, May 7 at 1415, KJES in English, M&W adults alternating with verses in English; modulation crackling and carrier unstable. Sounds between 100 and 200 Hz on hi side (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9955, May 7 at 0511 and later no signal at all audible from WRMI, during scheduled UT Monday 0500 WORLD OF RADIO broadcast, despite no jamming at all either; off the air? Propagation seemed OK, and Cuba was strong on 9790 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
