Glenn Hauser logs February 25 , 2013

** CANADA. 1610, Feb 25 at 0702 UT, some Spanish is making it thru the IBOC noise from 1600 KATZ MO, so it`s reduced by monitoring in LSB (yes, LSB since the IBOC peaks at +13 from the main channel). The IBOC noise fades in a regular pattern as if it is subject to subaudible heterodyning, but maybe it`s really the 1610 carrier which is fading up and down. Apparently a drama, and presumed CHHA Toronto, Voces Latinas. The SAH could be from much weaker CJWI Montreal, further on in the same direxion. This log on the FRG-7 with fixed E-W longwire (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GABON [non]. 9579+, Feb 25 at 0620, once again, I am only hearing MOROCCO, talk in Arabic, and no het, no carrier from Africa Number One on 9580 --- could it be gone for good? Is anyone else hearing it anywhen? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO [and non]. 960, Feb 25 at 0600-0605 UT, local KGWA Enid continues to provide a Fox-hole of dead air most nights --- well, almost, except for that nasty hum. Carefully nulling it on the DX-398 by the window, from long experience I recognize three stations coming thru: at 0602, 4-descending `XEW` chimes really from XEK Nuevo Laredo; then at 0603 harmonica blues music presumably from WABG Greenwood MS.
And also ABC News from KMA Shenandoah IA --- the latter playing a clip of Oklahoma`s reaxionary governess Mary Fallin (at least: she`s anti-smoking), which is very strange, since I remember hearing a clip from her exactly 24 hours earlier altho did not bother to log it then. Could ABC have been playing back a day-old newscast? Or does Fallin get a regular spot on the midnight report? (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 9955, Feb 25 at 0623, WRMI with some pulse jamming is relaying ABC TV news! Terry Moran with his emotional reporting from inside Syria, sounds like something previously on `Nightline`. I think I know which side this journalist is on, but it is pretty hard to be objective when bloody opthalmologist-dictator Assad is concerned. Would you trust your eyesight to that creature? Then found same a few words behind on 3185 WWRB, so it`s really Brother Scare who is playing this clip to serve his own wacky purposes (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SRI LANKA. 15270, Feb 25 at 1542, S Asian vocal music, good with flutter; 1545 into talk. HFCC and Aoki agree it`s AWR via Trincomalee, 250 kW, 355 degrees in Hindi at 1530-1600, preceded by Punjabi at 1500. This azimuth carries onward to N America transpolar (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 910, Feb 25 at 1316 UT, level-headed report about gay marriage which does not condemn the idea! On AM radio! O, it`s `Morning Edition`, as at 1318 ID for IPR, Iowa Public Radio, i.e. WSUI Iowa City, where NPR has this strange concept of objectivity (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 990, Feb 25 at 1306 UT, CBS World News Roundup with report from Larry Miller in London; 1308 ID as AM 990, a bit of music and then Memphis TN traffic, 1310 weather from WREG-TV, expecting to escape the snowstorm further west in OK et al. AM-990 is really KWAM, 10 kW day power. CBS WNR did not formally close and I had the feeling AM-990 cut away from it; network newscasts are far too cooperative in allowing affiliates to do that. Enough, already of news from the world beyond US (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 15180, Feb 25 at 1541, big open carrier. Nothing scheduled here now, anytime between 1457 and 2200. I would have guessed a characteristic VOA GB tuneup far in advance of scheduled transmission, except there aren`t any on 15180: still could be that, as some frequencies are for test-only, to avoid QRMing other stations on the ultimate channel. WHRI is listed here daily at 22-23 by the big four references, but I only hear it on Fridays (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
