Glenn Hauser logs November 26-27, 2012

** BRAZIL [and non]. 4755, Nov 27 at 0104, very poor signal in Portuguese, i.e. Rádio Imaculada Conceição, Campo Grande - MS per new handy updatable listing of tropical Brazilians, active or not:
Rodolfo Tizzi in Montevideo, Uruguay reports: From Campo Grande, Mato Grosso do Sul, Brasil, 0658 UT. Seems to be a reactivated frequency:
The only other signal I heard in the area was VP on 4717, no doubt Yura, BOLIVIA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. Firedrake Nov 26 after 1930:
9355, 9455, 9875, 9905, all poor at 1934 --- all to block R. Free Asia in Mandarin, via Saipan, Saipan, Palau, Tinian, respectively per Aoki
Before and after 1430 Nov 27:
9390, fair at 1415 about equal to Chinese target:
Aoki shows vs VOA Mandarin via TINIAN
7390, poor at 1424 mixing with something:
Aoki shows vs VOA Cantonese via Tinang, Philippines
12370, fair at 1438; none in the 13s, 14s, 15s, 16s, 17s; no doubt vs SOH, unheard (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 15340, Nov 27 at 1449, regular RHC programming has resumed instead of the 2-hour rap concert heard 24 hours earlier on this frequency only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GREECE. 9420, Nov 27 at 0640, VOG with old songs of the 1940s(?), as `Marion`s Attica` show is back, exactly one week after previous log on UT Tuesday Nov 20, tho possibly it is also on other days I have not noticed, as 31m is not always propagating. Really nice music to go to sleep by, after 0700 ID in Greek. As usual, not // R. Filia programming on 7475 in unknown language (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** INDIA. 13640, Nov 26 at 1927, ME music, fair with flutter. Must be AIR`s Arabic service, 500 kW, 300 degrees from Bengaluru. At first I suspected Kuwait ex-13650 since nothing audible there.
11670, Nov 26 at 1931 news in English about China, ASEAN, and // somewhat weaker 13695, i.e. AIR GOS, 320 and 240 degrees respectively from Bengaluru (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MADAGASCAR. 6135+, Nov 27 at 1427, Shiokaze is still audible weakly on 6135.0 with piano music, Korean, along with audible het on hi side; after JSR quits at 1430* the het becomes a JBA carrier. Based solely on reports by Ron Howard et al., it`s Madagascar long path. At least no QRM here from 6135 Yemen (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SPAIN [and non]. 21610, Nov 27 around 1450, noticed REE as usual here with some music, in a 13m check, but I had not noticed it was missing elsewhere. This bombshell from José Bueno in Córdoba:
``REE deja de emitir en onda corta para Europa y América del Norte. Tras dejar de escuchar algunas emisiones de REE, se confirma que desde ayer lunes 26 de noviembre, REE (Radio Exterior de España) ha dejado de emitir en onda corta para Europa y América del norte, desde Noblejas y Cariari, solo quedan las emisiones en DRM. Para el resto de emisiones en onda corta se ha bajado la potencia de transmisión.
Ha sido una sorpresa para todos.
SPAIN'S INTERNATIONAL RADIO STOPS BROADCASTING ON SHORTWAVE TO EUROPE AND NORTH AMERICA. After no longer hearing some REE emissions, it is confirmed that from Monday 26 November, REE (Radio Exterior of Spain) has stopped broadcasting on shortwave to Europe and North America, from Noblejas and Cariari. Only DRM broadcasts remain. Power has also been reduced for the rest of the SW transmissions. It was a surprise to everyone`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [non]. 11840, Nov 27 at 1435, good signal from Denge Amerika = VOA Kurdish, talking about Kurudistan, Iraq. HFCC shows it`s 100 kW, 108 degrees from Lampertheim, GERMANY at 14-15, to be followed by English at 15-16 on exactly same parameters except the CIRAF targets change from 39N and 40W for Kurdish to 39-41 for English. The first correctly home in on defacto Kurdistan, while 41 adds Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, and all of 39 and 40 means everywhere from Turkey and Yemen to Afghanistan (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [non]. 11750, Nov 26 at 1930, fair with heavy flutter, AWR theme, English ID and introducing a language I couldn`t catch, but HFCC shows Ibo, 250 kW, 328 degrees from SOUTH AFRICA. At 20-21 same Meyerton parameters shift to 11755 for French and Yoruba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1030, Nov 27 at 0602 UT, ID for KCWJ and KCWJ.org and into Fox `news` two minutes late; what`s with that? Starts with same story heard at 0600 on KGWA 960 without Fox-hole. Blue Springs MO (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ZANZIBAR. 11735, Nov 26 at 1931, music, fair with flutter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 6903.5-USB, Nov 27 at 1457, US military net with tactical calls always in fonetix: TTX, 6PK, 6QE, MRE (a little joke there?). Or maybe they are abbreviated calls omitting prefixes? Not likely with some alfanumeric, some not (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 9410-9435, Nov 27 at 1413-1418, the `banshee` slowly wandering spurblob is at first crossing Greece on 9420, down to 9410 and back up, by 1418 reaching 9430 and even 9435. It`s rather like some ionosondes sound, but they normally move faster and keep going up or down. So still suspect direly malfunxioning broadcaster. Is anyone hearing this in Eurafroasia? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 9600, Nov 26 at 1936, open carrier with flutter. Nothing scheduled here until 2000 CRI English via Kashgar, and they don`t usually fool around with open carriers elsewhen. If I were a dreamer I would suspect XEYU Mexico City coming back (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 15744-15751, Nov 27 at 1444, sounds like DRM or jamming, but not really centered on 15745 or 15750. Nothing is scheduled on either, except 15745 RSO Oman at 1400-1730 in HFCC, no doubt wooden (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. Further beeps (weak steady carriers on for a second, off for variable several seconds): Nov 26 at 1921 UT, none found in the 17 MHz area where I was hearing them 23 hours earlier.
11709, Nov 27 at 0057, here`s one, beating more against Argentina 11711-v, than something much weaker on 11710.
At 0624-0638 I am finding a bunch on 17 MHz which isn`t propagating much of anything broadcast-wise, tho 15 MHz is open from Africa. These are on the main FRG-7, rather than the DX-398 on the porch, and checking against the YB-400 or DX-398 inside, they are all synchronized:
17694, 17938 --- these are 244 kHz apart, so how about other multiples? I check 17450 and 17206, and there they are too.
But I find another one which doesn`t match, at 17145, and 243 kHz above that, 17388. At first I thought they were on exact .0 kHz frequencies, but not now. Nor does dividing these by 243 or 244 come out with anything even as an harmonic fundamental.
18823, also one here, which doesn`t match either lower sequence; too late to search further in the 18s, but I did quickly check 21 and 28 MHz without finding any.
At 1535, when 16m is certainly open for long propagation, I don`t hear the beeps on 17694, 17938, 17145 or 17388.
Anyhow, these do appear to be from something nearby, but if anyone else is hearing anything like them, please let me know. As I was not noticing them until a few days ago and have not installed any new electronic gear myself, I cannot hold myself responsible. Hmm, maybe from an Xmas lite blinker circuit? Now I need to look around the neighborhood for visual synchrony (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
