Glenn Hauser logs June 1-2, 2012

** BRAZIL. 11780, June 2 at 0524, RNA is on here, but still missing from 6180. What will happen UT Sunday when they both had been running all night? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. Firedrake June 2, before 0600:
15900, very poor at 0530
16100, JBA at 0542
16700, very poor at 0542
17100, very poor at 0547; none in the 14s, 13s, 12s by 0555
Before 1200, the dozen quota exceeded by one, bakerwise:
9970, fair at 1136; none in the 7s, 8s, 10s
11500, poor at 1141
11970, poor at 1142
12230, fair at 1143
13920, fair at 1143
13970, poor at 1143
14800, good at 1145
15900, very good at 1145
15970, poor at 1145
16100, very good at 1148
16700, poor at 1148
16980, very poor at 1148
17100, very poor at 1150
After 1200, incomplete:
15435, fair at 1206, het on hi side
15440, fair at 1229-1230*, het on hi side; VOT must have slid up 5
Mid-1300, incomplete:
15500, poor at 1322, het on lo side
15565, fair at 1322
Before 1400:
15610, fair at 1356, ACI from WEWN 15615; none in the 16s, 17s
15495, poor at 1356
14700, fair at 1357
13970, fair at 1357
13920, good at 1358
12230, fair at 1358
** CONGO. 6115, June 2 at 0558, despite Cuba back on 6125, I try to pull something thru here on a JBA carrier. At 0600 I do hear some very weak modulation, but can`t be sure it`s really from R.Congo rather than some cross-modulation overload (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** COSTA RICA. 17800-18000, June 1 at 1923, approx. expanse of modulation peak spikes from 17850 REE Cariari relay. There are no specific spur frequencies, contrary to usual practice as carefully measured before, but just broad continuous coverage, altho the worst of it seemed to peak around 17895, and more so on the hi side of the fundamental than the lo side (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. RHC missing frequencies, transmitters down or power outage:
6125, nothing at 0514 June 2, but back on in English at 0556 check, unfortunately when I was trying 6115 again for CONGO, q.v.
11760 and 11860 absent June 2 at 1351 while weaker 11750 and 11690 from the other site remained; 11760 popped back on at 1359, and 11860 a few sex later. 15340 was also off at 1355, while weaker 15230 remained on (Glenn Hauser, OK DX LISTENING DIGET)
** EQUATORIAL GUINEA. 15190, June 2 at 0528, gospel huxter is on mentioning 2011, fair signal. At 0541, `Let the Bible Speak` has just started, with Northern Ireland address.
I am yet to ever catch any R. Africa ID on 15190 since its latest reactivation a few months ago, but Jorge Freitas in Bahia, Brasil has: they do so at morning sign-off just before 0900. Three clips so far are atop his blog at
** GERMANY [non]. 21780, June 1 at 1944, poor signal in Luso Portuguese, i.e. for Africa, not Portugal! This is a DW RWANDA frequency in other languages, French and Hausa at 12-14 and 1800-1857, all 295 degrees and well heard here, but HFCC shows the 1930-2000 Portuguese is instead via Woofferton UK, 250 kW, 165 degrees (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GUIANA FRENCH. QSL received in p-mail June 2 from DX-ANTWERP for their 12 May specials via Montsinéry at 1400 on 17880, 1700 on 21680. Matches previous e-QSL except this one is filled in by hand and numbered 45. Also enclosed stickers of ORF, VOA and RCI, Stamp on the envelope features statue of a naked boy and what else? The Atomium (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** HAWAII [and non]. 10000, June 2 at 0516, WWV`s robofem announces the upcoming leap second for June 30 at 2359:60 UT.
15000, June 2 at 1147, WWVH with same announcement but voiced by a hu-man, concluding with ``aloha`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** JAPAN [and non]. 6110, June 2 at 0521, NHK English via CANADA missing again, as it was 48 hours earlier, not checked 24 hours earlier. What`s going on at Sackville? Again the other relays are nominal on 6020, 6190, 9555.
I could still hear R. Japan on 11970 via FRANCE, and listened to the announcement at 0529-0530* --- they have so few frequency-semihours left in English that they can proclaim their entire English schedule in less than a minute (altho skipping site info) --- and 6110 is still included for the 0500. HFCC A-12 as of June 1 still lists it thru October 28.
Program this UT Saturday was `Let`s Sing in Japanese` as outroed at 0528 until return in July, so apparently monthly on first Sat; after a performance by the Radio Japan Choir. At 0523 I was hearing the same song on 6080, the Spanish service via Bonaire, and at least part of the lyrix sounded English to me.
6090, June 2 at 1129* shortly after I intune to children singing on fair signal, cuts off the air. HFCC shows it must have been NHK Yamata in Russian, as they are making a beam switch from 330 to 290 and language switch to Korean (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MALI. 5995, June 2 at 0557, open carrier but much weaker than yesterday, presumed ORTM, while I concentrate on CONGO 6115 instead (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MAURITANIA. 7245, June 2 at 0602, IGIM is in chanting. Must have come on in the last few minutes since previous tuneby absence (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 6185, June 2 at 0513, fairly good open carrier aside CRI Sackville 6190. Presumably XEPPM is slow to turn off the transmitter after 0500*. I am seldom tuning before 0500 to evaluate how their modulation is doing now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. Es analog TV DX June 2: I wasn`t checking earlier, but turning on the TV at 2010 UT, opening is in progress on 3, 5 and 6, peaking west, in Spanish. G7IZU map agrees showing 6m Es contacts across the SW quadrant of USA; DX Sherlock map is inaccessible.
2010 on 3, typical almost-zero beat bars between the two BCN stations which should never have been allowed on same channel so close together as Mexicali and Tijuana. And as usual, XHBC Mexicali is dominant over XHTJB Tijuana. 2014, major league béisbol game in English is being voiced-over, just ending, Boston Red Sox vs Toronto Blue Jays. They say the next ``Sábado Grandes Ligas`` will be 30 de Junio (on this network anyway; maybe there is a net-5 bug in upper right). 2016 Televisa Mexicali animated ID.
2010 on 5 is surely its usual companion, XHAQ in Mexicali.
2017 on 6, ads in Spanish, surely XETV Tijuana again which is no longer Anglo in analog.
Nothing was very strong except peak during the Televisa Mexicali ID, and it`s all gone by 2050 (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX VIEWING DIGEST)
** NETHERLANDS [non]. 17605 via VATICAN, June 2 at 1951, RNW with `Stories from the British Commonwealth`, 1956 announcing the END of ENGLISH BROADCASTS will be Friday, June 29; frequency announcement and closing this one at 1957*.
Nothing about this dark day at
just previous stories back to 2010y.
The BritCom seems off-topic for RNW, but this mini-series has been running since October 2010; program site
ends with March 2011, including today`s episode originally 28 Dec 2010 and in current weekly previews: ``Thembi's Bicycle, by Rachel Tucker (South Africa). A grandmother's gambling dreams. Read by Jack Klaff. First airing: Tuesday 01:50 UTC`` Series produced by the CBA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 27185, June 1 at 1935 UT, C&W music on CB`s calling frequency, the single one which theoretically is kept clear of prolonged contacts, let alone continuous ``broadcasts``. Signal is steady and atop various weaker ones coming and going, some of them probably skip. I soon find it`s // 88.7 KLVV Ponca City and its 98.5 Enid translator. At 1937 ID as ``My Praise FM``. At 1941 CBer totally interrupts his distorted music fill relaying a local legit, for some comment, then resumes it. Such obstruxion is often the case with 27185 around here.
Meanwhile, I also checked the new KGVV 90.5 Goltry for // to 27185, 88.7 and 98.5, but found it was delayed by 24 seconds. Looks like KLVV is using a webfeed to reach the Carrier transmitter site of KGVV. For the moment, the 90.5 transmitter is back in whack (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ROMANIA. 17760, June 2 at 0544, RRI in English, usual good signal and the absolutely clear modulation all other SW stations should strive for (tnx to Continental?): program segment is `A Challenge for the Future`` about just approved NATO anti-missile defense shield vs the Mideast (not Russia!), with Romania participating. 0549 on to `A Song for the Day`, quite upbeat, ``A Wonderful World``. 0552 `Spotlight on Europe`.
17510, June 2 at 1152, RRI about the International Radio Orchestra Festival Sept 25-29 in Bucharest in connexion with their current quiz which closes July 31. Win 7 nites in Bucharest 9/23-9/30 sponsored by the Hotel Royal Bucharest but as always, cover your own travel expenses. Good signal aimed USward now post-sunrise, // weaker 17670 aimed awayward.
15310, June 2 at 1910, settled on high-velocity rock music here, fair signal to serenade my nap, without knowing whence. A bit weaker than France 15300. Music similar to that played on Kuwait 15540 but certainly not //. It`s RRI Romanian service, into talk after about 1935 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U K [non]. 17760, June 2 at 1157 talk about Moslems in Marseilles, outro as `Heart & Soul` from BBCWS, off at 1159:30*. Was two-sesquihour broadcast via THAILAND at 25 degrees also USward, the hi-latitude path not so nocturnal near Solstice (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1619 monitoring: via Area 51 webcast, starting at 0135 UT Saturday June 2 after some music fill. Checked 5110v-CUSB at 0158, and reception was sufficient altho with summer storm static. Weaker muffled audio could also be heard on the LSB, as WBCQ does not totally suppress the opposite sideband.
Next airings: On WTWW 5755: UT Sun 0400; on WRMI 9955: Sun 0800, 1530, 1730, Mon 0500, 1130. On HLR 5980: Tue 0930. Also on WRN via SiriusXM 120: Sun 0830, 1730 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9980, June 1 at 1930, WWCR continues to provide us two gospel huxters for the price of one! Beneath Brother Scare on 9980, explaining how to get to the Tabernacle, is clearly heard Defunct Gene Scott crosstalk, and // 13845 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9955, June 2 at 0517, preacher in English, not R. Vaticano in Spanish as still appears on the WRMI program grid for UT Saturday 0500, updated May 31. I have rereminded Jeff about this. He also told me, ``The Michael Mendez Show (in English) has returned Tuesday at 8 pm ET``, i.e. UT Wednesdays 0000 when 9955 is active.
At 1328, wrapping up `En Camino` about papal travels, presumably really from R. Vaticano in disguise; no jamming, 1329 ID and 1330 English preacher.
If it`s not jamming, it`s condoned collision with another American station: 9955, June 2 at 1130, WRMI in English is about equal level with Korean, i.e. YFR via PALAU per HFCC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 1550, June 2 at 1115 UT local sunrise, open carrier WSW/ENE --- likely KLFJ Springfield MO, the glorified TIS for Branson (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 6071, June 2 at 1130, again a considerable het to 6070 CFRX, and this time I can almost imagine I am hearing some Korean or Japanese, i.e. VOK off 6070 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 15755 approx., June 2 at 0533, very weak hand-keyed CW, with a very long string of Vs; long pauses; occasional very brief transmissions ending in K, but never heard a DE or any ID to copy. More VVVVVVs. This was just above but far enough away from the noisy blob circa 15748 reported recently. UDXF yg has a few hits on 15.755, e.g. Russian military logged by Bruno Casula, Italy, 2+ years ago (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
