Glenn Hauser logs November 13-14, 2012

** ALGERIA [non]. 7495, Nov 13 at 2239 Qur`an, poor in sideband splatter of 7490 WBCQ. Per DX Re Mix News, Bulgaria, 7495 is RTA, 500 kW, 194 degrees from Issoudun, FRANCE at 2100-2258 containing: 2100-2105 French news, 2105-2158 & 2200-2258 Arabic HQ all to NW Africa. Is there really an unnecessary 2-minute break before 2200? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ARGENTINA. 13363.5-LSB, Nov 14 at 0207, broadcasters chatting in Spanish. No time to keep straining for an ID of which station LTA is relaying tonight, but Eduardo Peralta, Argentina tells me at 2357 UT Nov 13, it was // 630 = Radio Rivadavia (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CANADA. 9625, Nov 13 at 2106, CBCNQ has extremely heavy flutter, apparently bouncing off the aurora during a disturbance, unlike much more northerly paths such as from Bulgaria --- see SOUTH CAROLINA [non]; not English but sorta French? French with an Inuk or Cree accent, or vice versa? 2229 not in French either, 2230 CBC News logo and non-French, non-English news. This used to be the time for the main evening CBCNQ-produced newscast, maybe still so (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 15340, Nov 13 at 2102, RHC has Spanish clip voiced-over into French, VG signal, but supposed to be in one-hour break between scheduled 1930-2100 & 2200-2400 transmissions to ``Europe``. French is scheduled only on 11760 at 2100-2130, and this is //. Don`t know when or if RadioCuba got around to turning 15340 off, but another prolongation noted Nov 14 at 0208, when it`s still on in Spanish with good signal two+ hours after scheduled closing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GUIANA FRENCH. 5844, 5926, 5994, 6076, Nov 14 at 0210, spurblobs from 5960 NHK Japanese relay are still radiating, tho not so strong tonight (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO [and non]. 6185, Nov 13 at 2241, guitar music, so XEPPM must already be on the air; instrumental-only music continued past 2300 with no announcements or ID. Apparently this is a prélude/warmup for Radio Educación SW programming not starting until 0000 UT, but when do they really turn on the transmitter?
After 2300 a SAH appeared, from an understation, which HFCC leads us to believe would only be CRI in Mongolian, 500 kW, 354 degrees from Xian, which would be close to the grayline (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PRIDNESTROVYE. 7290, Nov 13 at 2235, poor signal in German is Radio PMR, which airs Sun-Thu UT. Someone recently reported this as Voice of Russia, which is already in English with a better signal on 7250 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 9990, Nov 13 at 2059, WTWW-2 is reportedly on air at 20-01 now, so at tune-in I notice that it`s something other than Brother Scare; however at 2100 ID, and Ted introduces The Overcomer Ministry starting then with Brother R. G. Stair.
At the same time, only 10 kHz away on 9980, WWCR-4 has just finished BS for the time being, and started some other program --- so a convenient handover for BS psychophants (if they only knew all they had to do was retune 9980 to 9990).
BS is also on 9370 WWRB, which is a few sex behind 9990, and his audio on WWRB is much inferior, webfeed instead of satellite? Shortly, the very late Alexander Scourby pontificates the KJVB for a bit.
9700, tuning across 31m, I find yet another BS at 2107, 6 sex behind 9990, surprisingly good signal from alleged Bulgaria; per DX Re Mix News, since Nov 1 at 19-22, 50 kW, 306 degrees from Sofia to W Europe, but also USward, and no flutter. At the same time there is extreme flutter from 9625 CBCNQ Sackville [see CANADA], altho the direct great-circle path from Sofia goes much further north almost to 60 degrees -- southern tip of Greenland.
At 2226 recheck, 9980 WWCR is back with BS after an hour off for the otherhuxter, and is also 6 sex behind 9990 WTWW; what a waste! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 13570, Nov 13 at 2105, OM gospel huxter is alternating Spanish and English, along with CODAR swishes. Outdated WINB program schedule at website does not account for anything Spanish or bilingual at this time, but at 1900-2030 UT when on DST it had been The Overcomer, and timeshifted would be 2000-2130, except Brother Scare has apparently departed WINB again; see SOUTH CAROLINA [non] in this and my previous report (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** VATICAN [non]. 7305, Nov 14 at 0213, VR Spanish relay via Greenville is sufficient, but not a solid signal, roughly off the side here. I wonder if they are getting it started on time now from 0200. Still unjammed (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 6900.0-LSB, Nov 14 at 0202, a lively net in Spanish with many stations, sometimes talking over each other, friendly chat, no formal IDs heard, but mentions of names and places in next few minutes included: Rio Bravo, Tejas; Laredo, Tejas; Roberto; Alberto; Oaxaca; Miami; Alejandro; and someone said ``saludos y 73``.
This is obviously way outside the 40m hamband, and suspect these are free-banders, unlicensed, spanning the frontera with better coverage than on 27 MHz. The guy in Miami gave local time and explained that he was about to take a walk around the block (with dog?), so perhaps glorified HF Twitter. I`ve frequently noticed Spanish 2- or multi-way here before when trolling for pirates. Anyone know more about this operation? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
