Glenn Hauser logs April 28-29 , 2014

** ALBANIA. 9845, April 29 I am waiting for R. Tirana to come on, as sometimes it`s much earlier, but today not until *0124:39 with IS in progress; usual, good clear signal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BRAZIL. 11855.12 approx., April 29 at 0108, R. Aparecida is getting closer to nominal, in Brazuguese with phone caller (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BURMA [non]. 12115, April 29 at 0112, poor signal in Burmese, but would not have guessed the site until uplooked in Aoki: RFA via KUWAIT at 0030-0130 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. 11555, April 28 at 1805, sounds like shofar, so is it Brother Scare on an obscure new frequency? Not // 9370 WWRB; since I haven`t heard it in ages, it takes a moment for me to realize that this is the clarion call from the Firedrake; per Aoki here blocking RFA Chinese via Saipan at 18-19 only.
16920, April 29 at 0122, very poor broadcast signal, presumed CNR1 jammer (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 5025, April 29 at 0056, R. Rebelde is off again; 4765, April 29 around 0100, R. Progreso is on, but again can`t hear the four spurs around it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CYPRUS. 17487-17512, April 29 at 0121, very heavy continuous OTH radar pulsing, presumed from here, only broadcast victim being something covered on 17495, which would be CRI Amoy from Beijing site aimed 193 degrees (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GERMANY [non]. 17860, April 28 at 1759, open carrier, good signal, 1800 DW ID, jingle, opening in Hausa. Same MADAGASCAR parameters as until 1757 on 17540 for R. Impala, so probably same transmitter with no antenna change required; see RWANDA [non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GREECE. 9420, April 29 at 0055, very good signal with Greek song, 0100 timecheck, haunting Voice of Greece IS (maybe for the last time?), ending with cowbells, clear ID as Elleniki Radiophonia, then opening a drama(?) with ``pizza, pizza`` repeated a few times, and ``fortunately, we deliver``, otherwise in Greek. I kid you not. So this station does broadcast in English. None of the other frequencies were audible on 7, 9, 11 or 15 MHz. In the previous hour, 2348 UT April 28, Greece-watcher John Babbis wrote me:
``Glenn: I just heard on the 2300 UT News in Greek on ERT Open 9420: 
"The Greek Government has decided to close ERT." I don't know yet how this will affect ERT Open or Greek short wave``. Well, they`ve been deciding to close it since last summer, and April 27 was supposedly the target date for NERIT to replace it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 
** PAKISTAN. 17830, April 29 at 0119, South Asian talk, then male soloist but unseems Qur`an; fair signal. Aoki shows this must be PBC, Islamabad, 250 kW, 118 degrees in Urdu at 0045-0215. Aoki agrees, adding the callsign API-6 and the name Radio Pakistan. Only thing listed in either (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU. 5980, April 29 at 0058, JBA carrier from R. Chaski until cutoff at 0109:42*, which is 11.5 seconds later than one binite ago. When will they ever reset it? But will never catch up with my latening sunset, 0117 UT, followed by streetlight from *0131.3 with a clear sky at sunset. (Those wondering: Enid has been well to the west of all the tornadism.) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ROMANIA [and non]. 9520, April 29 at 0053, RRI VG signal in Romanian, 300 kW, 310 degrees to N America, yet has continuous CCI underneath from talk in Asian language, still at 0107, 0115, but gone at 0131. Altho CNR1 via PBS Nei Menggu is also scheduled here with 50 kW at 36 degree beam from Hohhot 839 site, favorable for North America, until 0200 per Aoki; it`s obviously the other collider, Gospel For Asia huxters targeting vulnerable minorities in a whole bunch of obscure languages, at 0030-0130, 250 kW, 100 degrees from Nauen, GERMANY: Tuesday at 0045 Rajasthani, 0100 Marwari, 0115 Kukna. Directly off the back from that would be 280 degrees, while directly off the back from Tiganeshti would be 130 degrees, far too much overlap from European sites not that far apart (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** RWANDA [non]. 17540, April 28 at 1753, fair signal level but just barely modulated, going from talk to music. Must be R. Impala, 250 kW, 310 degrees from MADAGASCAR, where you would think they could modulate properly. Recheck 1757.5, it`s already off. Compared to 17560, SAUDI, q.v. Same transmitter probably picks up on 17860; see GERMANY [non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SAUDI ARABIA. 17560, April 28 at 1753, about same signal level as 17540 R. Impala (see RWANDA [non]), but unlike it, this is sufficiently modulated; has more fading than 17540. At 1757.5 in Qur`an, 1758.5 to dead air and shortly off*. Is BSKSA HQS due west from Riyadh; I was hoping for another clandestine until checking HFCC and Aoki (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SPAIN [and non]. 17850, April 28 at 1859, REE IS, Spanish broadcast with CCI, 1800 timesignal and still CCI somewhat weaker than REE. This monumental failure of frequency coördination continues, as both Spain and FRANCE are registered on 17850: per HFCC, RFI in French at 17-20, and REE at 15-23, both daily. Aoki shows Spain on weekends only at 17-23, weekdays at 19-22, certainly not correct as this is Monday. Meanwhile there are plenty of open frequencies on the 16m band (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SRI LANKA. 11905, April 29 at 0114, SLBC OC is on, tho missed the precise moment it started; 0114:47 music starts, timesignal ending at 0115:11, opening Hindi; poor signal with flutter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5085, 5830, April 29 at 0056, WTWWs are off, and so is WTWW-3, 12105, at 0113 check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5110v-CUSB, UT Tue April 29 at 0057 and still at 0104, WBCQ is off, after consistently appearing weeknights at this time for weeks despite absence from online schedule, usually with Allan Weiner Worldwide playbacks (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 7505.22, approx., April 29 at 0105, WRNO is back on with VG signal preaching (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1330, KCKM Monahans TX: QSL received in the p-mail today April 28 for the March 22 DX test after follow-up. Same one others have reported with the oil rig gizmos. V/s Bob Souza also enclosed bumper sticker, and business card. Since my name does not appear on the QSL, we`ve also scanned the envelope with my name and address:
and to be added to my QSL Gallery:
This report despatched at 0331 UT April 29
