Glenn Hauser logs February 22-23 , 2013

** CUBA. 15510+, Feb 23 at 1400, RHC IS and ID weak but clear as I tune across, slightly offset, and doesn`t go away with attenuation, so apparently a real spur out of the 15340 transmitter; doesn`t compute either as a mix with 15230 which is at the other site, anyway, an echo apart (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also GUIANA FRENCH, TURKEY, USA
** GUIANA FRENCH. 9606 & 9374, Feb 23 at 0103, cannot detect the usual +/- 116 spurs from 9490 R. República, checking after getting 11635 OK, relaying KOREA SOUTH. Then I find the fundamental 9490 is abnormally weak, in fact, JBA under wall-of-noise jamming. It`s the carrier which is much attenuated, not just the modulation level (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also KOREA SOUTH [non]
** INDONESIA [and non]. 3325, Feb 23 at 1325 music, 1332 YL in Indonesian, 1334 music, now 25 minutes after sunrise in Enid, so RRI Palangkaraya instead of PNG; it`s the SSOB except for WWRB 3185.
This encourages me to check 60m: 4750, NO RRI here, just JBA carrier, Bangladesh or China or China. Ron Howard reported yesterday that both RRI and Bangladesh were absent.
4870, however, at 1325 Feb 23 has a LAH --- low audible heterodyne between two carriers, not much, but the TADIL-A bonker on the lo side is even weaker, so not a problem now. Per Aoki, the only two 4870 broadcasters are RRI Wamena, and from 1330, AIR Nepali service, Delhi-Kingsway site. Not bad for 300 vs 100,000 watts, respectively, and Wamena is always reported off-frequency low, as 4869.93 by Ron Howard on Feb 21.

4750, Makassar was last heard on Feb 20.
4870, Wamena went off at 1318* Feb 20, missing Feb 21-22, and today Feb 23 until 1458* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KOREA SOUTH [and non]. 11635, Feb 23 at 0102, KBSWR in Spanish about Seul, fair signal via GUIANA FRENCH and with characteristic lite hum. Still here rather than 9605 tested from unknown site a week ago, so decided against that? BTW, someone observed that programming on 9605 and 11635 did not match, further evidence that 9605 was not GUF. But see also GUIANA FRENCH.
15575, Feb 23 at 1339, KBSWR, English to ``North`` America (or BBC?) is a JBA carrier, unlike its surprise audibility yesterday, so did not expect to hear `Worldwide Friendship`; however, next check at 1404 KBS was fairly audible in Korean (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. Channel A2 NTSC, Feb 22 at 2332 tune-in, traces of analog video with antenna south, soon gone (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1650, Feb 23 at 0054 UT check, KYHN still running promos only; it`s Smerconish again talking about Larry David. Some Spanish CCI which could be El Paso or DF, but far more likely Denver (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU [and non]. 5980.0, Feb 23 at 0100, noise level even on the subfreezing porch is very high, altho unseems jamming, so I can barely hear a pip as the CNR1 jammer signs off. Only with offset BFO can I continue to hear the R. Chaski carrier and time its cutoff tonight at 0106:48.5 as it closes in on 0107 which will be attained in a triday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SPAIN [and non]. 21540, Feb 23 at 1448, REE is still on and QRMing KUWAIT, altho some days it`s off before 1500.
REE continues to run 17595 on Sat and Sun mornings only from 1300(?), obviously on NAm antenna with bigsig, tho you will not find that in schedules such as Aoki, or even from REE itself. There is no signal at all on weekdays (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TIBET [non]. 7414-, Feb 23 at 1329-1330* check, still awful roaring blob of distortion, little program modulation detectable, i.e. V. of Tibet, Chinese via Tajikistan or somewhere. What in the world are transmitter operators thinking, when they let something like this go on the air day after day, as in too many other cases as well? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TURKEY [and non]. 15350, Feb 23 at 1341, VOT with beautiful but sad Turkish song by YL in mandatory very minor key; 1342 announcement and another sad song by OM. At first clear of RHC 15340 splatter, but now its signal is building and starting to bother: not off the air unlike yesterday, when Turkey was too weak (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1657 monitoring: confirmed on Area 51 webcast, UT Sat Feb 23 starting just before 0230, following some filler after an `AWWW` ending earlier; and also confirmed on 5110v-CUSB at 0257 check.
Our ``best`` remaining airing on WRMI is Saturday 1600: checked Feb 23 at 1622, JBA carrier, and noise level is slightly higher on 9955 than adjacent 9950 & 9960, so apparently some weak jamming is also running. Presumably WRMI can be heard with much better signal on its 160-degree azimuth from Hialeah toward the Caribbean and South America, but I rarely get any reports from there. Presumably2 WRMI is keeping on this beam only, despite 24/7 transmissions, 65.5% dedicated to Brother Scare, as the enlightenment of The Last Day Prophet of God must go forth unto all the world.
WOR Next: Saturday 1830 on WRN via SiriusXM 120; UT Sunday 0500 on WTWW-1 5830 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5050-USB, Feb 23 at 0055, WWRB not on yet, but yes, on at 0108 with a-huffin` & a-puffin` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 15825, Saturday Feb 23 at 1405, WWCR with `Martha Garvin`s Musical Memories`, and crosstalk underneath: not // 13845 DGS, nor the other playout of MM on 7490; and fourth transmitter is not on 9980 yet this day of week. So that leaves 1300 WNQM as presumed source of mixture, their MW station at same site. At least there are no modulation spike spurs today in the 15650 area (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** VIETNAM [and non]. 11605, Feb 23 at 1353, good open carrier, already with whoop-whoop siren jamming, both sides warming up for RFA`s Vietnamese hour at 1400 via TAIWAN. Altho annoying, this kind of jamming doesn`t really block the offensive signals as heard here; how bad is it inside Vietnam? Are these sirens intended for groundwave around a city or cities? It`s 708 miles or 1140 km between Hanoi and Saigon, so the north and south could jam each other effectively at a good skip distance on 25m. However, we never hear more than one siren transmitter at a time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 4779.88 approx., Feb 23 at 0057, Andean music has better signal than 4775 R. Tarma, Perú or any of the others below 4800 --- 4790, 4747, 4717. Probably R. Oriental, ECUADOR, which is usually closer to or even above 4781. But does it vary down to here?
Note this from 2011y: ``Bob [Wilkner] and I heard a similar Spanish speaking UNID on 4779.87 on Sep 02, 06, 07, 12 and 13 between 2255 and 0218 UT. R Tacana, Tumupasa, Bolivia or R Oriental, Tena, Ecuador? Best 73, Anker [Petersen]``. R. Tacana has not been reported in a long time now, presumed inactive (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
