Glenn Hauser logs October 7, 2012

** BANGLADESH. 15105, Oct 7 at 1251, BB missing unless it`s the JBA carrier I often hear instead, maybe not right-on frequency and could be a local birdie.
15505, Oct 7 at 1358, open carrier with flutter, 1359:15 IS a couple times almost, stopped early to play a ``time`` signal ending at 1359:46; very poor today from the BB Urdu service, but at least it`s on the air for the first triminute, all that I checked (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BRAZIL. 6180, Oct 7 at 0531, RNA is gone again after a week`s reactivity, but no help, as now there is nothing adjacent on 6175 or 6185 to be unQRMed (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CANADA. 6175, Oct 7 at 0459, Sackville again puts VOV on wrong frequency instead of 9555; very strong with that characteristic squeal from this unit. Needs a new modulator card, but why bother now? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CANADA [and non]. 9625, Sunday Oct 7 at 1406, CBCNQ with lo audible het from CCI of at least equal strength. It can`t be Channel Africa in Portuguese, since that is M-F only; instead it must be RTI, 300 kW, 250 degrees from Tainan, TAIWAN in Vietnamese at 14-15, per Aoki and EiBi, certainly not HFCC where Taiwan is banned by the ChiCom; but HFCC compensates with a wooden listing for VOR due south from Novosibirsk (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. Firedrake Oct 7 before 1300, no full searches:
15550, fair at 1256
After 1300:
15495, poor at 1309, het on hi side
15560, poor at 1309, het on hi side
** CUBA. 9810, Oct 7 at 0533, RHC English with some hum, as happens periodically on this frequency which is supposed to be in Spanish only and closing at 0500.
17580, Oct 7 at 1307, RHC is still on, not especially strong and no specific spurs all over the band, but a general spread of its modulation audible some 50 kHz either side, which is bad enough.
11680, Oct 7 at 1313, yet another RadioCuba SNAFU, as has happened a few times before, lysdexic operator putting RHC here instead of correct 11860, during mailbag; still there at 1352, and 1403. Much stronger than the weak other site on 11690, 11750.
9540, Oct 7 at 1317, humbuzz atop RHC modulation, but no spurs detectable. Pretty weak fundamental now, so could have been spurs inaudible.
Since it`s elexion day in Venezuela Oct 7, I figure it`s worth checking the still-listed on RHC website frequencies
for the imaginary `Aló, Presidente` relay on Sunday mornings --- not that El Hugazo would suddenly revive the show, as that might be construed as elexioneering, but if ever worth broadcasting via Cuba, this should be the day --- so is there anything at 1547 on 13680, 11690, 15370, 17750 or 13750? No, at least not from RNV/RHC.
On second thought, it makes perfect sense not to revive it: 1) it`s too early for results yet; 2) what if he should lose?! 3) elexion, what`s that? Certainly counter-revolutionary (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GREECE [and non]. 9420, UT Sunday Oct 7 at 0458, VOG`s reëxpanded span is still on in former silent period; recheck at 0534 finds the much-anticipated Greek Orthodox Sunday singing service in progress, lasting past 0618. A nice contrast to the 0530 VatLat mass on even stronger 9645, battle of the sects.
15650, Oct 7 at 1311 poor with Greek music, in another extension on the air before previous *1355 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** JAPAN. 5985, Sunday Oct 7 at 1329, open carrier, poor signal, lite het from Myanmar 5985+; 1330 piano music, Japanese, 1332 ``kochirawa Shiokaze``, from JSR Tokyo to Korea North (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 610, Oct 7 at 1214 UT, ``la máxima expresión de la radio en Sabinas, BX!!``, then local time and temp. Cantú:
610 XEBX La Primera Sabinas, Coah. 5,000 500
** MEXICO. 1000, Oct 7 at 1203 UT, orchestral NA, then full ID, hard to copy with KTOK OKC QRM incompletely nullable making a slow SAH; but I did catch a ``Chihuahua`` and a ``Rancherita`` which makes it XEFV Ciudad Juárez, ruling out the other Chihuahuan in Parral which I think I have yet to hear (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 960, UT Sunday Oct 7 at 0500 is another dead-air day from local KGWA during the midnight news hole. Nulled as best I could, this time there is some Mexican romantic music underneath carrier, 0502 maybe a quick X- ID I can`t catch as QRM de ABC news reverb from two other stations is gaining on it. Suspect XEK Nuevo Laredo as it does not loop very far SW, and not near the KGWA null. I watch the seconds tick away to get the volume turned back down in time. 0505 KGWA blasts back on with local ad starting with countertop bellringing, introducing Metcalf Lawn & Garden (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** RUSSIA. 5930, Sunday Oct 7 at 1238, R. Rossii with neat weird music, unreadable lyrix sound English, pre-Hallowe`en? As often the case in their final hour before sign-off with unusual music. 1241 brief Russian announcement mentions John Fox, and Elisabeth ---; 1250 another song in English. More music plays right up until 1300 when it stops with no announcement or even time-signal, and carrier off before 1301.
This is 100 kW, 30 degrees from Petropavlovsk/Kamchatsky, which is usually paired with unsynchronized 5940 Magadan, but no sign of the latter; it is much further north, but suspect not on the air tonight. It`s also 100 kW, 30 degrees per Aoki, so both USward.
With Putin ruling out continuing yearound DST, dumb idea by Medvedev, we can expect these to extend one UT hour longer until 1400 come winter. Previous B-seasons, 5930 has switched to 6075 instead, but B-12 plans to stay on 5930, perhaps to avoid Vatican, if not 8GAL and 2MTL (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SPAIN [non]. 11880, Sunday Oct 7 at 1254, REE COSTA RICA, music rather than `Amigos de la Onda Corta` but did not check earlier to be sure it was missing; then `La Costa de las Tormentas`, presumably just a promo for it. After 1305, `Mundofonías`, world music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1637 monitoring: confirmed on WTWW-1 5745, UT Sunday Oct 7 at 0400. Next: on WRMI 9955, Sunday 1730, Monday 0500, 1130. Also on WRN via SiriusXM 120, Sunday 1730 which feeds WRMI.
Meanwhile, WTWW-2 was still on 5085 past 0400, Ted Randall interviewing some celebrity who is integrating ham radio into a TV show and inviting studio audience for tapings on some Tuesday evenings, probably replay of a QSO show (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9825, UT Sunday Oct 7 at 0425, `Pirating with Cumbre` this week with very strong signal from WHRI, unlike last week when it was JBA. In fact, at 0457 it`s still on and overloading with images around the 31m band (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** VATICAN. 17650, Oct 7 at 1305, good signal but very heavy short/long-path echo on VOA Somali talk, 250 kW, 139 degrees from SMG at 13-14. So 319 degrees would be directly off the back, close to USward with, like other European examples such as Wertachtal, most of the signal pushed toward what is for us the long path, but also plenty of signal direct off the back short-path, auto-QRMing. Without breaking out the globe again, no doubt this also went across the Indian and Pacific oceans, all overwater once it got beyond EurAfrica (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. TP carrier search Oct 7 at 1218 found a few just barely audible: 738, 747, 774, 828. The last 3 surely the big 300 kW NHK Japan units, and the first, looping further south, Tahiti. Today`s sunrise was 1232 UT (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 1030, Oct 7 at 0506, open carrier with hum is still here, presumed KCTA 50 kW Corpus Christi daytimer (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. Ch A2, Oct 7 at 1445 UT, another meteor-scatter burst of NTSC video with antenna south. Presumably a Draconid relaying Mexico, that shower peaking about now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
