Glenn Hauser logs February , 2013 part 1-2

 ** BOLIVIA. 4717, Feb 3 at 0056, JBA carrier at first, but a bit more here than on Peru`s 4747, 4835, etc. A poor Andean evening. But at 0111, 4717 has improved with some music audible from R. Yatun Ayllu Yura, Yura.
6134.8, Feb 3 at 0105, no signal from R. Santa Cruz, off early? Normally propagates much better than the 60m signals, which were weakened tonight (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BULGARIA. 9450, UT Sunday Feb 3 at 0051 check, Mighty KBC`s weekly broadcast has good signal, just far enough from the circa 9454 Guiana French spurblob (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EAST TURKISTAN [and non]. 9420, Feb 3 at 0114, Voice of Greece has very strong CCI also causing a SAH, at least equal level from CRI English, // 9570 relay; 0115 ``News and reports from CRI``; also on // 9410 much weaker CRI but in the clear with no BBC or Turkey during this hour. Both are via Kashgar, says HFCC, with 9420 100 kW at 174 degrees, which you would think would be weaker than 9410, 500 kW, 308 degrees (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU. 5980, Feb 3 at 0058, yet another try at R. Chaski: mixture of Chinese jammer atop weak music; 0100 timesignal and China off, then music is JBA, too poor to copy anything but again I retune with BFO before 0105 to time when they cut the carrier: 0105:11*, another few sex later than the night before (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also BOLIVIA
** U S A. 2660, Feb 3 at 0106 UT, black gospel music in surprisingly well, same format as heard on KGLD around sunrise. Is in cycle of slow fades up and out; another peak at 0109; 0110 segué to another tune. 0119 another fade-in, and I am not hearing a second carrier tonight.
Make a point of rechecking before hourtop, 0158 now the music is accompanied by talking, and at hourtop bare-bones legal ID caught for the first time on 2660! ``KGLD, 1330 AM, Tyler``, same as I had heard on a previous webcast check. So now this Texan second harmonic is 100% sure. ID overrode the music program for a few seconds, then that continued. Also at 0158 I noticed some weak CW QRM to this for the first time, on the low side. See my previous reports about KGLD power authorizations: supposed to be 77 watts at night on 1330, altho also with a PSSA of 36 watts until 0200, but the full day power available is 1000 watts (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9305.1-CUSB, Feb 3 at 0052, spur from WBCQ 9330v-CUSB; quite readable; but unheard at 0117 recheck, or anywhere in the vicinity. Maybe the fundamental had faded below threshold for spurring, tho still sufficient on 9330. Remember that Jan 27 at 1316 I had a spur from this on 9313. In neither case could a matching one on the hi side be found (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5050, Feb 3 at 0057, and still at 0458, WWRB is back on this channel, having been missing for several nights, including UT Friday during WORLD OF RADIO, just 3195 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1654 monitoring: confirmed on WTWW-1, 5830, UT Sunday Feb 3 at 0500. This time, instead of starting WOR early and then interrupting for the local ID. SFAW programming continued until 0500 sharp, then ID, but then joining WOR already in progress at 0500:17 or so. Well, that`s some improvement. Next: Sunday 0900, 1600, Monday 0530, Tuesday 1200 on WRMI 9955, Wednesday 0630 & 1630 on Hamburger Lokalradio 7265-CUSB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5085, Feb 3 at 0057 check, WTWW-2 is still missing, no Saturday night show from Ted Randall et al. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 3325, Feb 3 at 0102, surprised to hear weak signal in English: not sure whether this one is a transmitted mixing product or a receiver image on the DX-398, but no match on 3185, 3195, 3215 or 5830 at least (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 6165, Feb 3 at 0619, RHC back to normal after much weaker signal the past two or three nights on this frequency. FRG-7 meter shows about equal to 6125 at S9+25, but as usual 6165 has much louder, i.e. normal modulation level. No 12 MHz harmonix audible.
Night would not be complete without some anomaly, and here it is: 6060 at 0619 is in Spanish instead of English which remained on the other four fundamentals.
9512, Feb 3 at 1255 approx. center of spurblob with some modulation matchable to 9540 RHC, as frequently happens. 9550 and 9850 also on but the spur remained after 1300 when 9550 and 9850 were off. At 1328, 9512 blob with fair signal and louder modulation than 9540 source (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EAST TURKISTAN. 13855, Feb 3 at 1341, poor signal but nice lite western violin showpieces by virtuosa/o; 1346 announcement overcome by surging splatter and overload from 13845 WWCR Dead Gene Scott. Thought it might be Russia, but HFCC shows CRI Chinese service, 500 kW, 308 degrees from Ürümqi to Europe (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GREECE. 9420, Feb 3 at 0624, VOG with usual Sunday morning Greek Orthodox cantors producing their peculiar ``harmony``, continued good signal past 0700 without a news break, I think as I was falling asleep. At the outset, 7475 was weaker and not //, so maintaining separate R. Philia program during this hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** INDIA. 9470, Feb 3 at 1326, AIR National Channel manages to stick to proper frequency, but not to modulate, just open carrier with flutter; how about // 9425? At 1327 it`s weaker but no modulation either, so maybe a studio/feed problem to two different sites, Aligarh and Bengaluru respectively (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** INDONESIA. 9526-, Feb 3 at 1308, VOI audible only as a JBA carrier on its signature off-off-frequency, as usual for months, and I have ceased to try to hear it or log it even during this English hour. Tried again this time because of recent reports from elsewhere that their modulation has been repaired, but no way to tell on this terribly weak signal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KOREA NORTH [non]. 5985, Feb 3 at 1330, Shiokaze is still here, Japanese this Sunday with big het from MYANMAR q.v. 5985.3. Any day now, Sea Breeze will surely QSY to an alternate 49 mb frequency, which it will take a while for the ineffective and here inaudible Juche jammers to refind. Strangely, WRTH 2013 page 505 does not list them, tho they are pretty well known, just 5910 which must have been on at presstime. EiBi shows only current 5985. In between was 6135, those three properly mentioned by Aoki, altho there are a couple of others we can find only as wooden HFCC registrations under JIC MIC at 100 kW, 290 degrees from Yamata, JAPAN altho available for longer timespans: 6015, 6140 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KOREA SOUTH [non]. 15575, Feb 3 at 1337, just for giggles, check for KBS World Radio ``North American`` service in English hour axually aimed at deep South America across the darkside on too high a frequency: Yes, something poor in English, but seems // to 5875 tho not synchronized, i.e. on 15575 BBC due east from CYPRUS.
So I am forced to go to the website, but: where is anything about `Worldwide Friendship`, surely their most k-popular program? Which has supposedly just started including additional DX info? Several shows are on the homepage but not this, nor on a listing of programs; only find it on the schedule grid. Even at the listen again page
it`s blank for Saturday Feb 2, and not all the shows on Feb 1 have listen linx; first defaults to another blank day which it already is by KST at 17 UT Feb 3: Monday Feb 4. What a mess. O, the January 26 WWF audio does have an audio link, so press it --- and nothing! The AOD player doesn`t start, altho it does play for another show `Seoul Calling`. One must conclude they don`t really care to be heard on SW, or internet (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 6185, Feb 3 at 0615, not only is the XEPPM carrier still on, not unusual, but so is some modulation, very unusual! Song with guitar, 0616 announcement, acknowledging someone in Los Ángeles, California. Probably just a mistake; quite overshadowed by ACI from much stronger BRAZIL 6180 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MYANMAR. 5985.3, Feb 3 at 1315, Burmese talk, i.e. Myanmar Radio on its always-off frequency, which normally here is audible only as a het to Shiokaze after 1330. Aoki shows at 0930-1630 this is 25 kW at 176/356 degrees from Yangon, hardly favorable angles for us, and no English until too late even in our winter, 1530 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 810, Feb 3 at 1357 UT, nice instrumental version of `Hallelujah Chorus`, clear in NW/SE null of WHB Kansas City, presumably KLVZ Brighton CO, in the service of religion rather than Art; faded just in time for any hourtop ID (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 2670-USB, Feb 3 at 1258 UT, numerous ``Broadcast Notices to Mariners`` with numbers such as 0095-2013, apparently in reverse order, and ``break`` between them. One mentions 504 AC number for Army Corps of Engineers contact, later mentioned Lake Charles, about damaged bridges, blocked channels, etc. Background noise thruout in noisy radio room. Concludes just before 1303 switching to YL for ID, ``. . .Texas, out`` all I could catch, but NOY Galveston is scheduled at 1250, to be followed at 1303 by NMC/NMQ9 Long Beach CA, per
UNIDENTIFIED. 780, Feb 3 at 1406 UT, groundwave KSPI Stillwater OK can be sharply nulled, revealing weak Spanish music, fast SAH, and no WBBM, fading by 1408 when a possible ID came as ``Radio Zeta``? Probably not as no such Mexican slogan mentioned anywhere and there are zero US SS stations on 780 per NRC AM Log. It`s a bit late for the two Tamaulipans or the one Coahuilan, but there are none further west. As for ``Zeta``, maybe no station would call itself that now with unfortunate connotations? No, Cantú does show a couple on AM, 1260 and 1340 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 2250, Feb 3 at 1303, some JBA music on an apparent third harmonic of 750; first time at least some modulation audible, but need to monitor during previous hour. Too late for anything on 2240, and 2660 is JBA carrier now too (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 7415, Feb 3 at 1321, humroar mixed with weaker Chinesish? so is it jamming or a spurblob? Nothing at all scheduled here in Aoki, HFCC or EiBi. Roar and language cut off at same time 1329:47*, so what in the neighborhood is scheduled to close at 1330?
7185.7 & 7200.1, Myanmar
7220, Vietnam in Chinese/Russian, but which is often around 7216v.
7345, Thazin Radio, Myanmar
7420, CNR1 jammer per Aoki only
7420, AIR changing from Tibetan to Nepali
Most likely the above pair, I think;
7435, Sirjan, Iran in Pushto
7460, NBT Thailand is changing from Mandarin to Thai, maybe with break
