Glenn Hauser logs October 27-28, 2012

** ALBANIA. 7425, Oct 28 at 0233 open carrier, dead air, no doubt R. Tirana, one of many stations unable to coordinate a smooth transition from A- to B-season scheduling. English to NAm for B-12 is at 0230 on 6100, but not there. Instead they kept 7425 from A-12 on the air but moved it one hour later, and there was no programming being fed from studio. Maybe that was still done at 0130, when I believe neither frequency was on the air (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ALGERIA [non]. 5865, Oct 28 at 0511, Qur`an on RTA`s new/reactivated B-12 frequency via FRANCE, ex-9535; 7295 remains on air with non // Qur`an, from two different networks (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** AUSTRIA. 6155, Oct 28 at 0538, no signal from Ö1, when we used to hear nice classical music; now the only remaining transmission we can hear from Vienna shifts one UT hour later to 0600-0715, too late this week until we`re back on standard time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BANGLADESH. 15505, Oct 28 at 1356, hi-pitch tone and flutter and hum from BB past 1400, no IS, and TS comes 69 seconds late! Then opening Urdu. Reset your clox! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BONAIRE. 15265, Oct 27 at 2230, NHK Japanese relay is still going; would this be the final broadcast from Bonaire? 2359 IDs and closing transmission, 3 pips of time signal until cut off at 2400* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also CANADA; JAPAN
** BRAZIL. 6180, Oct 28 at 0224, RNB missing again, so no ACI for BaBcoCk music loop on 6175 or more varied music on XEPPM 6185 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CANADA. 6175, Oct 28 at 0224, BaBcoCk music fill loop playing continuously on what had been the relay of Voice of Vietnam. So much for turning off Sackville after A-12 is over! Transmitter is still on air, but program feed has been removed. Continues all evening and even QSY to 9555 for more of same when checked at 0459. Notice some tape snags (?) in the loop around 0522; automatically off at 0529* after RCI IS & IDs. See also VIETNAM [non]; JAPAN [non].
9625, Oct 28 at 0504, CBCNQ with CBC News in English, report from Windsor, close enough to the World Series & Detroit Tigers. News ends at 0504:30, right into YL in Inuktituk, apparent sign-off pronouncing address in English rather than French, but no full sign-off in discarded English, followed at 0506 by sign-off in French, to return at 6:55 am ET, ``bonne nuit``, 0507-0508* ``O, Canada``. So was this the final final of CBCNQ and/or Sackville?
No, 9625 again heard, but very poor, Oct 28 at 1332 with `The Sunday Edition` on plot to overthrow Mossadeq (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. 5965, Oct 28 at 1235 Firedrake against nothing, but could not find any usual FD frequency propagating 12-18 MHz to compare. At 1243, back on 5965, now it`s in Korean, so it was NOT FD, but something within the CRI Korean service now scheduled 11-15 vix Xi`an.
Firedrake Oct 28 after 1300:
15570, fair at 1313
15485, poor at 1313, het on hi side
12980, very poor at 1317
After 1400:
15570, poor at 1403
** CHINA. 6030, 6045, 6085, 6125, 6150, 6175, 7295, 7310, 7365, 7385, 7445, noted all these CNR1 frequencies with same music, and most of them as jammers, Oct 28 at 1322-1325. Only 7385 had significant QRM (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CROATIA [non]. 7375, Oct 28 at 0514, CRZ with Croatian rock music now extending one hour later via GERMANY until 0600. HFCC shows that for B-12, site has also changed from Wertachtal to 100 kW Nauen, viz.:
23-04 255 degrees to SAm
00-02 300 degrees to ENAm
02-04 315 degrees to CNAm
04-06 325 degrees to WNAm
So the overlaps with two transmitters are different now. English segment should now be at 0300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EUROPE. 15520-AM, Oct 28 at 1245, poor signal with some fadeups, electronic music, and DJ talking over from time to time, with hotmail address; says he will be returning a bit later today, but keeps going for now. 1250 hard-beat music continues; DJ says ``we have to go``; 1251 ``got to go, closing down after this``. 1253 acknowledges e-mail from Adolf in Austria, will answer him. 1254 ``You are listening to –--- over Europe `` but again I can`t catch the ID! 1255 vocal music, 1257 finally: ```` and off at 1300*
Then I check Georgi Bancov`s Pirate Radio Weekend roster: Borderhunter is on there, but not at this time or frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GREECE. 7475 // stronger 9420, Oct 28 at 0514, VOG with Greek talk; the Sunday Orthodox service will now be starting an UT hour later circa 0600 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** INDONESIA [and non]. 9526-, Oct 28 at 1330 not even a carrier where VOI English had been active for a couple weeks; now if it comes back, has heavy ACI from 9530 VOA Chinese via Philippines and jamming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** IRAN. 9710, Oct 28 at 0415 Oct 28, V. of Justice on new B-12 frequency to NAm from 0330, fair here but very poor on // 11770 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** JAPAN [non]. NHK B-12 transition from A-12 is a royal mess:
5960, Oct 28 at 0210 has NHK music, extremely strong. This was supposed to switch from CANADA to GUIANA FRENCH, but has it? At 0221 there is a SAH and some CCI but can`t tell from what. 5960 remains on air past 0400, which was the old Sackville scheduling, while GUF in B-12 is only until 0400.
11935, Oct 28 at 0210, JBA carrier, surely not NHK as now scheduled via GUIANA FRENCH instead of Bonaire; bothered even by runover Cuban jamming from 11930. However, at 0231, NHK World Radio Japan, Tokyo IDs in English and Japanese, and Sakura IS loop is playing over and over on 11935. Well, that`s a start. At 0239 still doing this, while 5960 is continuing with NHK programming.
11740, Oct 28 at 0459, NHK IS, only fair signal on GUF replacement for English on 6110 via Sackville; sign on and starts news at 0501 with earthquake in Queen Charlotte Islands, but at 0502:41 someone cuts the NHK feed from English to Spanish!! Now the news is about an agreement with Mozambique over natural gas. 0508 still in Spanish; then I check 6195, which is almost synchronized with 11740, Spanish news about death of composer Hans-Werner Henze. 6195 is the new relay via WHRI for NHK Spanish at 0500, (also at 0930), but NHK Spanish at 0400 on 6195 is via GUF, unchecked. While 11740 stays in wrong language Spanish, I check 6110 and find bigsig from Sackville is still on! in English, item about archery.
9770, Oct 28 at 0518, NHK English is also audible here, NF via FRANCE, ex-11970.
15190, Oct 28 at 1227, sufficient NHK English on NF via GUIANA FRENCH to replace 6120 Sackville: I set the alarm to check this just in time. But 6120 is also still on, at 1228 about one second ahead of 15190. HFCC B-12 has both 6120 and 15190 registered for GUF, but today 6120 must still be Sackville, slow to QRT itself. Off at 1230* without any RCI IS/ID, however. During the final minute at 1229, NHK announcer recites the entire NHK English schedule with new B-12 frequencies, NOT including 6120 at 12, but adding 11730, (which is via Uzbekistan).
11655, furthermore, supposed to end with A-12, is still on the air with NHK Japanese via Sackville, Oct 28 at 1404.
11925 is very poor vs R. Martí 11930, and 11695 is JBA at 1405, the new English frequencies at 1400, via Palau and Uzbekistan respectively. See also BONAIRE, CANADA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KOREA NORTH [non]. 5985, Oct 28 at 1336, no signal from Shiokaze via JAPAN, where it has been for a few weeks; maybe the poor signal on 5910 is its alternate replacement; not on 6135 either, just bonking (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KOREA SOUTH [and non]. 15575, Oct 28 at 1244 checking for KBSWR direct replacement in English to NAm at 12-13 as on their new schedule, ex-9650 Sackville: JBA carrier, could be colliding station as previously outpointed. 15575 also sked for Korean at 14-15: nothing at 1403, aside Firedrake on 15570, so something is propagating from E Asia.
9650, however, is still on from Sackville, at 1407 check, VG signal, but only with tone test and clacking, no programming. More mixups (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KUWAIT. 21540, Oct 28 at 1305, R. Kuwait is still on this unregistered frequency in B-12, Arabic music atop REE in Spanish. It looked promising on Oct 27, when Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria found RK on surprise 13650 at 10-15 instead of 21540, but it collided with others on 13650. In HFCC, RK continues to pretend it is on 21520 at 1005-15, instead of 21540, meanwhile prolonging the totally unnecessary collision with Spain (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MYANMAR. 7110, Oct 28 at 1227, Thazin Radio is back on after missing a couple of days due to civil strife and/or power outages; music audible at 1324 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NETHERLANDS [non]. 9500, Oct 28 at 0037 and later chex, no signal from Mighty KBC Radio which said it would be testing again this week via BULGARIA to North America. Later info came that a microprocessor failed, and they will try again next week (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NEW ZEALAND. 5950, Oct 28 at 1321, RNZI is back on its B-season frequency ex-6170, Oct 28 at 1321 about geothermal energy. Had not seen a full B-12 sked from them but here it is:
including 5950 at 1300-1550 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6970-AM, Oct 28 at 0042, rock music from pirate with good signal, but could not pull ID at 0043 thru the noise level. Andy Robins, MI, got the ID: XFM Shortwave (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 960, UT Sunday Oct 28 at 0500, KGWA maintains modulation with sports scores, running late this Saturday night, so no Fox hole (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ROMANIA. 5975, Oct 28 at 0223, RRI in French, with het, from what? ``Pictures at an Exhibition`` on piano. At 0236 on // 7325 which is stronger, during mailbag greeting listeners in Québec.
5910, Oct 28 at 0229, HJDH has some heavy QRM atop making fast SAH, in Romanian so must be RRI, and at 0237 found better // 7340 with violin concerto. Both are to E NAm at 01-03.
17530, Oct 28 at 1240 RRI in English is the SSOB except for Cuba, far exceeding anything else from Europe or Mideast on 16m; talk about a town in Transylvania where musical instruments are made. New B-12 schedule moves this English hour one UT hour later to 12-13, but after this Week of Confusion, when we are back on UT -6, it will resume being too early for us before 7 am CST, even if propagating. 17530 is TIG, while // 15460 is GAL, both to WEu and hence NAm. // to elsewhere are 17765 GAL and 21570 TIG (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** RUSSIA [and non]. 7290, Oct 28 at 0208, VOR English very good, somewhat stronger than // 7250 in new B-12 scheduling. 7290 is 500 kW, 309 degrees from KCH, MDA at 23-04, = Grigoriopol, PRIDNESTROVYE. 7250 is 500 kW, 315 degrees from ``ARMavir``, Russia at 22-04, per HFCC. These spans are not necessarily entirely in use or entirely English. AM hams in North America can kiss their favorite 40m frequency 7290 goodbye.
9840, Oct 28 at 0518, Russian from R. Rossii, propeller-buzz transmitter is back here, ex 12+ MHz something, from Moskva/Taldom. Can`t they tell how defective it is? But whoopee! This winter unlike the last couple, they are not colliding 9840 with VOR from DVR to WNAm.
5930, Oct 28 at 1320, JBA signal, so not R. Rossii, Pet/Kam? We were wondering if local time would go off DST and hence prolong the broadcast another hour past 1300? Apparently not, still in HFCC to close at 1300. TWR via Irkutsk is also registered here 1245-1530 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOMALILAND [and non]. 7120, Oct 28 at 1328, JBA carrier presumed R. Hargeisa starting to show via long-path; more of a signal from LSB VE7BC close by (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SPAIN [non]. 9630, Oct 28 at 0516, REE Spanish via COSTA RICA has heavy Christian-sounding CCI in language with music. HFCC shows it`s now AWR in Hausa, 300 kW, 190 degrees from AUSTRIA, but it`s almost equal level to REE! This should go away from Oct 29, as B-12 REE schedule shows them on 9675 instead at 02-06 to NAm, while 9630 was the A-12 frequency. Complete B-12 REE is in latest DXLD 12-43, but HFCC still doesn`t have it, just relisting old B-11 info.
17595, Sunday Oct 28 at 1310, REE has started `Mundofonías` world-music show with Perú, so it remains at the same UT as in A-12 until new program schedule effective Nov 12, but now on the B-12 frequencies, also new very strong 15170 ex-11880 via CR, and weaker 15125. 15170 is best, but a trace of an understation. Can it be RRI as per last winter`s collision revived? Yes, Romanian 13-15, 290 degrees from Galbeni (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SUDAN [non]. 7315, Oct 28 at 0534, VG signal, but lo-fi audio, interview in Arabic. Tired of waiting for a Radio Dabanga singing ID to be interjected, but surely this is it as now scheduled in B-12 at 04-06 via VATICAN (hope possible collisions with WHRI have been worked out). 7315 is ex-11650. The other new frequency in HFCC is unchecked 11940 via MADAGASCAR, ex-15400 (fortunately, as 19m is dead); also on unchecked UAE 13800. 7315 and something on 7325 squeeze out much weaker Magadan on 7320 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TAIWAN [non]. 5950, Oct 28 at 0200 and later, WYFR is gone and with it the RTI English relays. New and only one is now 22-23 on 15440 and 6115 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TURKEY [and non]. 9655, Oct 28 at 0415, VOT on new B-12 frequency for English to NAm, ex-9515 at 0300; during DX Corner, fair with flutter.
15350, Oct 28 at 1303 news in Turkish enumerating US swing states; VOT Turkish now here at 07-14, 500 kW, 310 degrees from Emirler for WEu and thence NAm. Would be good if it weren`t for RHC 15340 splatter plus/minus 20-25 kHz! At least Morocco continues to be long gone from 15349.1.
17755, Oct 28 at 1307, Turkish music, better signal than non-// Turkish service on 15350; as in previous B-seasons, this is VOT German service from 1230, 500 kW, 310 degrees from Emirler and also USward.
12035, Oct 28 at 1356, no signal at all from VOT, supposed to be B-12 replacement for 1330 English, ex-1230 on 15450, which was fairly reliable for a semiyear. Is 12035 really on the air? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U K. 5985, Oct 28 at 0239, fair signal in Farsi. It`s new B-12 channel for BBCWS, due east from Woofferton at 0230-0330 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [non]. 7520, Oct 28 at 1327, wild fiddling, ex-7575, 1330 ID as VOA `Jazz America`, also on poor 9640. 7520 is on air during the 13-14 hour only on weekends, 250 kW, 332 degrees via Tinang, PHILIPPINES, while 9640 is likewise at 270 degrees.
9800, Oct 28 at 1333, good signal in Korean but some CCI; is VOA, 250 kW, 21 degrees also USward from Tinang, PHILIPPINES, at 12-15, ex-15775 in A-12. No CCI in HFCC, just Pakistan at 1230-1330. See also INDONESIA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9990, Oct 28 at 0037, WTWW-2 is blasting in, on air for weekly Saturday evening broadcast with Ted Randall. Presumed QSY to 5085 circa 0100; no WORLD OF RADIO at 0130 or 0200 as in previous weeks. 0200-0300 running Rod Hembree stuff; 0300 starts playing back an old QSO show; 0510 check off the air, unlike last week when stayed on a couple hours more.
11490, Oct 28 at 0212, very poor signal from PPP = // 2 x 5745 WTWW-1. Never noted this harmonic before, but may well be in this case DX-398 receiver overload rather than transmitted.
5745, Oct 28 at 0400, WORLD OF RADIO 1640 airs as scheduled UT Sundays. Also next week, but after that due to end of DST, will appear at 0500 UT Sundays starting Nov 11.
5745 has been in use by WTWW-1 for a few weeks ex-5755, but what about B-12 when OCB/R. Martí was already registered for its usual winter usage at 11-14? HFCC shows RM has been cut back to 13-14 only so there is no collision, but I`m still hearing a weak signal from it and no jamming yet at 1319 Oct 28, while WTWW-1 is already on 9479 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 3195, Oct 28 at 0214, gospel music, presumed WWRB which past week in transition period has been running // 5050, but no 5050 now.
Note that per updated transmitter schedule at
WWCR-1 is also on 3195 part of the time:
22-01 3195, 01-09 3215 this week, and from Nov 4:
23-02 3195, 02-10 3215
Contrariwise, WWRB is on 3215 until 01, then 3195 until 04, presumably also changing to switchover at 0200 once DST is over and then running until 0500 including WORLD OF RADIO UT Fridays at 0430 on 3195 if they can manage to play it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGESTE)
** U S A. 5920, Oct 28 at 0218 `Pirating with Cumbre`, so `DXing with Cumbre` is here at 0200 UT Sunday. 7520, ex-9825, PWC on DWC is also heard at 0415 UT Sunday. But may change next week or two with DST ending (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 15610, Oct 28 at 1301, WEWN announces this hour on 15610, and joining program (mass) in progress, as happens so often --- will they ever get their act together? Anyhow, in B-12 no longer shifting to 15615 for the first bihour of English on 19m (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** VATICAN [and non]. 7305, Oct 28 at 0210, no signal from Vatican Radio, which has registered a surprise new relay via Greenville and retimed Spanish to 0200-0245. Presumably will really start UT Oct 29. Also scheduled 1130-1200 on 7305, both daily.
21680, Oct 28 at 1306, PBXVI clip and news in Italian about BC quake, poor signal from VR, 1300-1320 daily in Italian, 250 kW, 185 degrees from SMG.
17650, Oct 28 at 1308, big collision between French and Arabish? French is certainly CRI via Kashgar, EAST TURKISTAN and is // 15205, but the other? Nothing in B-12 HFCC. A12 Aoki, however, had VOA Somali via VATICAN at 13-14, so suspect SMG has failed to change/delete this transmission. Check tomorrow (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** VIETNAM [non]. 9640, Oct 28 at 0226-0228* something in Vietnamese, so no KBS English direct from Korea South. 9640 is the replacement for Sackville 6175, with VOV scheduled now 250 kW, 294 degrees via Woofferton UK to CIRAF 8 = E NAm: 01-03 English, 0330-0400 English. Since they never had two hours straight of English, I assume this really includes Vietnamese at 0130-0230; did it come back on at 0230?
See CANADA, where old 6175 stayed on the air with BaBcoCk music fill loop all evening and even on 9555 after 0430; 6175 is still on the new VOV schedule, but only for Spanish at 0300-0328 and 0400-0428 via WHRI. I may not have checked during those hours, but it could have been a big collision.
The replacement for Sackville 9555 in Vietnamese at 0430-0528 is supposed to be 7345, 250 kW, 310 degrees from Woofferton to W NAm, which is an even worse substitute for Sackville. It aims across Greenland and Utah to Los Angeles (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also CANADA
