Glenn Hauser logs November 23, 2012

** CHINA [and non]. Firedrake Nov 23, before 1400:
11970, fair at 1348
12230, very poor at 1350
12320, very poor at 1350
15560, maybe here, JBA at 1352; at least something is hetting 15557, presumed Voice of Tibet. However, Noel Green says 15560 is ex-15140 for Oman in English after 1400. Why in the world would they leave a nice clear frequency for this? Maybe new frequency manager making changes for changes` sake, cf also 13600 ex-15355 at 0300
15800, JBA at 1351; none in the 16s, 17s, 18s
** IRAN. 11700, Nov 23 at 1433, Qur`an, 1434 announcement in uncertain language by YL with some reverb. Format smax of Iran, and sure enough per Aoki, it`s VIRI in Hindi, 500 kW, 118 degrees from Kamalabad. Now how many Hindus would care to hear Islamic religioning? Doesn`t matter to the Iranian evangelists (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 960, UT Friday Nov 23 at 0600, local KGWA Enid resumes a Fox-hole after lapsing into modulation the past two nights. Dominant signal this time with KGWA carrier nulled, is Spanish, mostly music after mentioning Monterrey, where there is no 960 station, and likely the usual XEK Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 93.1 FM, Nov 23 at 1420 UT as I was sucking the last drops of coffee from my cup with a straw, I was reminded to check 93.1 for Enid translator K226BR --- sure enough this *really* sux, eclipsing my draw, as the relay of KIMY 93.9 Watonga continues to misperform, unnoticed or uncared for by its owners or primary. No loss, but a sorry situation (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TAIWAN [non]. 15180, Nov 23 at 1437, good signal with choral excerpt from ``Aïda``, but surely not IRRS as it continues until 1444 announcement in unknown language, 1445 more opera, ballet music and soprano; 1450 some Lehar, probably `Merry Widow`. What could it be? Romania might play a musical selexion like this. 1454 fade to announcement and jingle, and definitely in Russian, giving schedule. By now is weakening and losing to more and more splash from bigsig 15170 REE/Costa Rica; cuts off air at 1457* with no perceptible ID. Who`d`ve thunk it? Aoki shows this as RTI, 500 kW, 60 degrees via Issoudun, FRANCE, in Russian at 1400-1500[sic]. We`ll take classical music on SW however we can get it! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TURKEY. 9785, Nov 23 at 1427 TRT IS, 1428 ID in unknown language inserted; poor signal but better than we can expect on 12035 for English in preceding hour. HFCC shows Kazakh at 1430-1500, 500 kW, 62 degrees from Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1644 monitoring: 3195 & 5050, UT Friday Nov 23 at 0432, both WWRB frequencies are on this week, and WOR starts upcut during the opening, after a nerve-wracking 130-second respectful pause following Pastor Cain from SC, amen & amen to 0430.
Next: UT Saturday 0230v on Area 51 via WBCQ 5110v-CUSB; UT Sunday 0500 on WTWW-1 NEW 5830; also maybe sometime that evening as late as 0600 on WTWW-2 5085. On WRMI 9955: Sat 0900, 1600, 1830, Sun 0900, 1630, Mon 0530, Tue 1200. On HLR: Sat 0630 on 7265, 1630 on 6190. On WRN via SiriusXM 120: Sat 1830 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. Re my previous log of 930, WLBL, Auburndale WI, Doug Smith replies to: As for the ``bear harvest``, it must have been deer:
``No, it's bears:
It's not 100% accurate to say WLBL is programmed out of WHA. Both stations are part of Wisconsin Public Radio, which is programmed out of a facility on the Beltline Highway in Madison`` and further explains the extremely complex structure of public broadcasting in Wisconsin, in full in the next DX Listening Digest 12-47 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. TP carrier search just after sunrise Nov 23 at 1320-1323 UT: JBA carriers on 774, 828, 882, 1422, 1593 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 4055, Nov 23 at 0618, I usually miss TGAV by not monitoring before 0609*, but checking the frequency tonight I hear some overlapping sweep tones, best with BFO; apparently a VFO in play. No idea what this is, or if coming from TGAV transmitter; never hear such QRM earlier when it is on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 6135+, Nov 23 at 1400, and still at 1422, het between very poor presumed Shiokaze (which sounded more Japanese than English this Friday), and something on the hi side, likely Madagascar long-path. Pitch comparison seemed closest to E below middle C = 165 Hz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 9410v, Nov 23 at 1431, ``banshee`` variable spurblob, fortunately staying far enough away from 9420 Greece this time. A JBA carrier on 9425, so maybe not wandering from AIR National Channel Delhi. Aoki shows several stations are supposed to be on 9410 now: BBC Oman; CNR5 from Beijing 491 site; Turkey in Russian; and also formerly active until 1400, Fu Hsing BS from Taiwan (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
