Glenn Hauser logs March 4-5 , 2014

** ALGERIA [non]. 7295, March 5 at 0648, music and Arabic? at a new time, presumably an hour extension to the 0500 TDA relay via FRANCE, which for most of the B-13 season ended by 0600, (followed by RFI Hausa at 0600-0630), but habitually makes seasonal changes a month early, not shown (yet?) in HFCC. Now has ACI from TWR Polish via AUSTRIA, stronger on 7300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BURMA [non]. 11560, March 5 at 1429 JBA carrier with flutter, 1430 talk, presumably Democratic V. of Burma, on its new frequency via TAJIKISTAN, ex-6225 (and 12450?); Spanish splash from 11550 WEWN (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. 9450, March 5 at 1418, distorted FMy CNR1 jammer finally right where it ``belongs``, interfering with non-distorted CNR1 jamming and poor Taiwan (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. 12045, March 5 at 1428, Firedrake musical jamming mixed with CNR1 jamming, and what`s left of VOA Chinese via Tinian; all too close to 12050 WEWN and its squeals. Elsewhere, only CNR1 jamming vs SOH:
15940, March 5 at 1424, CNR1 jamming, very poor with flutter 
16100, March 5 at 1425, CNR1 jamming, very good with flutter, contrast
17810, March 5 at 1426, CNR1 jamming, fair with flutter on the Wednesday-only frequency of VOA Tibetan via Philippines. No others found in the 18s, 14s or 13s. And none at all found in another bandscan 19-12 MHz around 1524 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA [and non]. 13823.41, March 5 at 1519, besides the wall-of-noise jamming on 13820, R. Martí also has a carrier hetting the hi side, measured here per my keyboard. Steady; if it`s local, not ever noted before (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also VENEZUELA [non]
** KURDISTAN [non]. 11510, March 5 at 1415, Kurdish music, fair with flutter as usual, still here. I`m rechecking this, since in ODXA YRX, Charlie Wardale in Lincolnshire reported Denge Kurdistan on 11600 at 1631 Feb 28. DK did experiment briefly with 11600 several months ago, so again? But Aoki shows 11600 now occupied at 1530-1730 by Bible Voice in Persian via Bulgaria since Jan 22 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TIBET [non]. 15515, March 5 at 1423, good signal in tonal language, presumed V. of Tibet, via MADAGASCAR, now shifted down to here; leaving CNR1 jammer on 15520, fair with flutter. Both off at 1440 check as the VOT broadcast is 1400-1430 only, per Aoki also, starting at 1400-1408 on 15520 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5000, March 5 at 0652, WWV is very distorted, out of whack, making spurs at least out to 4900 and 5070; meanwhile 2500 sounds OK and 10000 has no signal as usual at this hour, just WWVH with Pacific marine weather at 0651. Mess first reported by Steve Luce in TX at 0550, on both 5 and 10 MHz, and presumably ran that way all night, as my next check at 1416 found 10000 extremely distorted and bleeding out to 9960 at least. 15000 is still too weak to tell here, normally mostly in the skip zone. However, by 1508, 10000 is back in whack. This corresponds to 8 am in Fort Collins, likely when the day shift started with someone there to fix it; may well be *no* night shift of human supervision. This kind of thing has happened before to WWV on 10 MHz at least, as I have reported (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [non]. 17895, March 5 at 1521, `VOA Music Mix` DJ with fair signal, via São Tomé; HFCC also shows one other IBB hour in English at 17-18 via Vatican (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1710 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday March 5 at 1400 on 9955, following WRMI ID by gh. Hope to have #1711 ready for first broadcast at 0430 UT Thursday on 9955; then surely by 1330 Thursday. Note that from UT Monday March 10, all our times on US stations will shift one UT hour earlier due to DST; mostly on same frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. 7455, March 4 at 2200, new WRMI `TruNews` service is again not on air yet, and a good thing, too, as long as Greece is running 7450 past this hour. By 2300, Greece is off 7450 and WRMI is on 7455. I assume the nominal registration starting at 2200 will really go into effect March 9 as everything shifts one UT hour earlier to compensate for DST, almost the earliest possible date it can start under current US law which also applies to Canada (except Sask, of course), border parts of Mexico, and all of Cuba, the Greatest of the Antilles. 
Next check at 0646 March 5, VG on 7455 playing gospel rock, with RTTY still audible, crushed underneath. Unknown if runs all the way to 1100, and whether TruNews hours repeat further, but after DST is in effect, may stop at 1000 instead. 7455 operations also apply to // 5850. Ivo Ivanov thinx the azimuths are 355 on 5850 and 285 on 7455; and points out that 5850 is co-channel to R. Farda until 0300, not a problem here, via Kuwait. He also says there is RTTY on both new WRMI frequencies, but none heard here on 5850. As of 1600 UT March 5, these *still* have not been added to the WRMI graphic frequency schedule. Expect a major overhaul, anyway due to the arrival of DST March 9.
Another oddity: Wed March 5 at 1510, 9955 is running R. Praga in Spanish instead of Brother Scare, but he`s on at next check 1525. Ironically, Praga item was about the film ``Viva Cuba Libre`` playing at a Czech documentary film festival, yet no jamming at the moment. Presumably another feed mixup, which might also explain the non-BS I heard March 3 at 22-23+ on 9955 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [non]. 11955, March 5 at 1512, lovely rendition by soprano with piano of the Christian hymn ``Jerusalem``, in language? Must have been Turkish, as scheduled this semihour for AWR via AUSTRIA, good signal, followed at 1516 by another song, for Turkids? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1110, March 5 at 1345 UT, IRN USA Sports for a triminute, the middle one being a work-from-home ad. This with KFAB tightly nulled. 1348 UT back to some talkshow, about Twitter. 1355 UT ``KYKK weather forecast``, so as suspected in my previous log it`s this Humble City NM 5 kW ND daytimer (Hobbs market, SE corner of NM). Presumably named after a now defunct Permian oil company which eventually led to Exxon (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1170, March 5 at 1349 UT, KFAQ Tulsa seems weakish lately: on backup or reduced power? Can null it to hear something in Spanish about 3 Hz away. Recently IDed XERT Reynosa, but not now; this one with a 303- area code mentioned, by M&W DJs chatting, then Mexican music, so it`s KJJD Windsor CO, 1 kW ND (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 
** U S A. 1490, March 5 at 0701 UT, CBS Sports Radio is atop the pileup and looping NE/SW. Likely one of my closest, listed as on that network, KTOP, Topeka KS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** VENEZUELA [non]. 17730, March 5 at 1451, RHC nostalgic feature on Chávez, mentioning equally defunct `Aló, Presidente` show #299, and Santa Clara; was El Hugazo visiting there? Soon on to another topic. This reminds me to check if the show website still exist, and it does:
It autodisplays current date and time, except the clock is off even for odd Venezuela, showing 11:52 am at 1712 UT March 5, as if Ven time were UT minus 5:20 instead of -4:30. Shows show #378 which may have been his last one. Haven`t checked whether any audio or video archives play (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 11200-SSB, March 5 at 1433, intermittent 2-way talk, but impossible to tune in due to speech inversion, so the center frequency is also approximate (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 1748 UT March 5
