Glenn Hauser logs May 12-13 , 2014 part 2

** SARAWAK [non]. 15460, May 13 at 1215, all talk by M, Malayish-sounding, so presumably Iban, from R. Free Sarawak, which has been trying several frequencies lately including this one, now settled, ex-15420? Often not audible at all, but today declining from poor to very poor by a bit of music before off at 1230*. Site presumably still via RVA, Palauig, PHILIPPINES. Yes, Ron Howard heard it on 15460 today from 1056: https://app.box.com/s/i73ivmuhv8hl52aqt8co
As in DXLD 14-19, Hansjoerg Biener reports:
``For the first time ever, Reporters Without Borders published a list of profiles of "100 information heroes" for World Press Freedom Day (3 
May). Searching the list, I found four international broadcasters, two 
working for established international stations, two working for 
programmes which in DX circles are often labelled as clandestine. 
PETER JOHN JABAN --- Known by the pseudonym of "Papa Orang Utan," Peter John Jaban is the voice of Radio Free Sarawak, a London-based shortwave radio station that broadcasts to local communities in the jungles of the Malaysian province of Sarawak, on the island of Borneo. A member of Sarawak’s Iban community, 
Jaban already defied the authorities by turning his previous radio 
station into a forum for criticizing exploitation and expropriation of 
the native population by the associates of Sarawak’s billionaire chief 
minister Taib Mahmud. Radio Free Sarawak has to operate clandestinely 
in Sarawak, where the authorities regard it as "seditious," jamming 
its broadcasts and hacking its website in an attempt to prevent it 
from spreading its "lies" and "poisoning the spirit of the people." 
Since returning to Sarawak in 2012, Jaban has lived in constant fear 
of being arrested but that doesn’t stop him from commenting 
ironically: "I much appreciate the honour of this recognition, not 
least because it may be useful if I am arrested.``

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 12105, May 13 at 0513, TOM is poorly audible vs CODAR, from WTWW-3. If #3 transmitter needs to substitute for inoperative #2, I wonder why they don`t put it on the #2 frequencies, 5085 night and 9930 day? BTW, the two SW schedules on the Overcomer Ministry website are total disasters as always, mixing current and outdated info, wrong frequencies, wrong stations, incomplete (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TIBET [non]. 18990, May 13 at 1255, very poor signal with fast SAH. This must be the Tuesday 12-13 frequency for the jumparound R. Free Asia Tibetan service via KUWAIT on this otherwise empty band. 1258 music, 1300 two timesignals mixing, one 5 seconds fast and then everything off. Maybe I was hearing two CNR1 jammers unsynchronized as to time and exact frequency. 
18980, May 13 at *1300, now RFA Tibetan via Kuwait is here, musical theme, and alone on frequency. Not until *1310 does CNR1 blast on, overriding it, much stronger and // 11785. EiBi has added all these, but not specifying days of week! Back to Aoki, which fits: 18980 Tuesdays & Fridays at 11-12 & 13-14; 18990 same days at 12-13 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 15825, May 13 at 1311, WWCR with black gospel music, `Inspiration Across America`, good signal now but highly variable depending on time of day and whether sporadic-E short-skip boost it. Part of the 15825 schedule is soon moving to a new frequency. But why? There are no other broadcasters on 15820, 15825 or 15830, and we never hear any ute interference either. Did Dr Jerry see my remark that WWCR no longer needs to be so far out of band to have a clear frequency? It will still remain on the Far Right of the 15 MHz band, on new 15795, now in HFCC as of May 13, effective from 1 June but only at 09-13, while 15825 is still also registered from 09 to 22, so evidently will remain after 1300 and still be available earlier if 15795 doesn`t work. 15795 is not a good choice: EiBi shows AIR in DRM Chinese at 1145-1315, thus also jammed; but the real schedule avoids most of this by QSYing at 1200, from the WWCR website and starting already May 19:
``WWCR A14 Schedule May 19, 2014 to Aug 31, 2014
Transmitter #1 - 100 KW - 46 Degrees
12:00 AM-04:00 AM 0500-0900 3.215 MHz
04:00 AM-07:00 AM 0900-1200 15.795 MHz
07:00 AM-05:00 PM 1200-2200 15.825 MHz
05:00 PM-08:00 PM 2200-0100 6.115 MHz
08:00 PM-12:00 AM 0100-0500 3.215 MHz``
** VATICAN [non]. 15440, May 13 at 1231, poor-fair signal in Russian; a few minutes earlier had noticed open carrier here. EiBi shows it`s Vatican Radio to Siberia via IBB Tinang, PHILIPPINES; thus violating Separation of Church and State, the US Government`s exclusive arrangement with the one and only religion it recognizes for relay deals. Yet the RCC has its own SW station in the Philippines, Radio Veritas Asia with time to spare after 1230: see SARAWAK [non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 8785-USB, May 13 at 1151, Japanese OM talking: sounds like a broadcast, not a traffic list. Perhaps marine weather. Stops at 1156; back briefly at 1158 maybe attempting a contact. From 1200, ACI from WLO/KLB on 8788 but only for brief ID info at hourtop. Searching various utility resources on 8785 gets very few hits. From UDXF yg:
``8 April 2011: 8785 USB 1131z: Japanese sounding OM reading long message. Perhaps maritime informational broadcast? Brandon Menifee CA USA http://solarix.net``
``6/27/10 11:45 UTC 8785 USB Unid Japanese OM steady talk as if talk show host. If you are willing to have a listen and clue me in as to what he was talking about I can send the recording. Tried to upload to the group site but it was too large as I had used highest quality recording. Many thanks in advance, Eric Cisar, Everett, Washington USA
Icom PCR - 1000, Long wire``
``27 June 2010: 8785.0Khz usb Unid Japanese OM steady talk as if talk show host. 12:02:08UTC (2010-06-27) (Bubba99 in Washington, USA on StarChat#wunclub)``
``8.785,00 JC.. - ..... J GYOGYO RADIO J3E/USB 29-nov 2210 NW/WX JAP - 2011, Bruno Casula``
Searching on ``Gyogyo Radio`` gets ONE hit to this page, 
which lists numerous Gyogyo stations in Japan, with callsigns and locations but no frequencies. Gyogyo clearly is not a place itself. Googling around, it seems that the word has something to do with fishery. Could be just news from home for the extensive oceanic fishing fleet. How about specific info from Japan on this station? Callsign, agency and location? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. Re my two reports of oldtime radio on 13560+, Harry Smith replies, ``Hi Glenn, It could possibly be a FCC Part 15 station on 13.560 MHz in the U.S. A certain amount of r.f. radiated power is legally allowed on that frequency, though it is originally intended for such uses as RFID. Because that frequency is used for RFID, it is relatively easy to modify parts and equipment to get a signal on 13.560 MHz`` 
Frequent chex since then have sometimes found `hash` around the frequency, could be local, or maybe real RF IDing? (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 15615, May 13 at 1216 good strength open carrier aside 15610 WEWN. I keep on it, hoping for something identifiable. 1217* off, *1218 back on, 1220* off and on and off 1221*, etc. 1227 adds 1 kHz tone past 1230, back to OC at 1232. Bit of music at 1235, back to OC until finally cut off for good at 1253*. WEWN strength and spurs were not building up until 1300. No broadcaster listed on 15615 except RFA Tinian in Chinese at 04-07, plus jamming of course. EiBi also shows VMW Wiluna, W Australia with meteo fax on 15615, but not heard now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
