Glenn Hauser logs July 31 - August 1 , 2014

** ASCENSION. 7355, August 1 at 0528, BBCWS with VG signal tonight, while 7305 from *0529 in Hausa is fair-good (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BRAZIL. 11660, 11690, 11720, 11750, 11810, and 11840 under RHC, August 1 at 0100, horrible distorted spurs continue from the 11780 RNA transmitter. This time they are so strong that each one damages plus/minus 5 kHz adjacent channels too. When I was monitoring SRI LANKA [q.v.] 11905, bothered by crackle circa 11903, which I suspect as a further spur from 11780, indicating each is slightly more than 30 kHz apart. Each has no definite carrier to pinpoint.
Next check 0532 August 1: still nasty spurs every ~30 kHz, 11660, 11690, 11720, 11750, 11810, 11840, and 11870 under WEWN (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT. 13850, August 1 at 0535, still open carrier/dead air from R. Cairo ``Arabic`` to NAm; is it ever thus all the way from scheduled 02 to 07? Geez (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GREECE. 9935, August 1 at 0103, ERTOpen is active tonight after missing a few days, but as has happened before to this transmitter only, it`s acting up with motorboating pulses, and with BFO it`s clear the center carrier is unstable. // 9420 is OK, VG but with lite SAH from Iran; and // 15630 also has good signal but undermodulated (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** INDIA. 9690, August 1 at 1410, AIR GOS with fair signal today, quite listenable during Indian vocal music, 1419 English announcement, 1420 closing newscast. Better than // 13710, and as usual, no signal on alleged // 11620. 9690 also has better signal than VBS on 9870 which also suffers CCCCI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6935-USB, August 1 at 0058, hard rock pirate music, 0102 ID as XLR8 and off; fair signal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU. 5980, August 1 at 0057, R. Chaski carrier, not only on the DX-398 with longwire, but sufficient signal to hear it on the PL-880 with whip only, until cutoff at 0106:44.5*, which is 18 seconds later than last check 3 nights ago July 29 (and it was missing July 31) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SRI LANKA. 11905, August 1 at 0115, SLBC carrier on with prélude, timesignal ending at 0115:20; very poor with QRM from 11903 crackle, probably 11780 Brasil spur (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 
** U S A. 25000, July 31 at 1945, JBA second tix, and top-of-minute tone, but no voice announcement audible, so finally heard WWV on reactivated frequency --- normally too close at under 500 miles to Ft Collins, but had just noted VG signal on 20000 which is also too close, except when obviously sporadic-E is in play. Yet, *no* activity heard on 12m hamband just below 25 MHz, and very little on ``15m`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 21344-USB, July 31 at 1955, SSOB if not the OSOB, quick contest-like contacts by station failing to ID itself with each QSO, but eventually as W1AW portable 4 in Kentucky --- so it`s this week`s location for the year-long W1AW ARRL WAS marathon. Says he is listening on ``347``, and altho little else heard here on ``15m``, he`s working all over from Japan to South America to Europe. From *where* in KY? Two to four syllables to identify location would take up too much precious QSO time! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 13110-USB, August 1 at 1404, robofem with tropical storm warnings for Puerto Rico, Barbados, Vieques, and ``she`` spells C-U-L-E-B-R-A, not knowing how to pronounce it? Among other island targets. EiBi lists WLO Mobile on this frequency altho not at this hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 3185, August 1 at 0113, WWRB with duet or trio of YLs singing ``God Will [allegedly] Take Care of You``, beautiful harmony! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1732 monitoring: confirmed on WBCQ 7490 webcast, Thursday July 31 at 2100.
Also confirmed UT Friday August 1 from before 0327 on WWRB webcast: this time the audio quality is fine here, but somewhat degraded on 3185, which also combats summer noise level, and notably weaker than neighbor 3215 WWCR. Shortly after I finish, at 0356 Dave Frantz comes on live playing an off-air recording of the Swiss Radio International IS, lamenting the demise of so many SW stations like that one, and musing on his early years of SWLing from 1967. I`m listening now online, but at 0400 he`s automatically chopped off for the KJV Bible readings filling the rest of the time. Next:
Saturday 0630 & 1430 on Hamburger Lokalradio 7265-CUSB
UT Sunday 0030 on WRMI 9495 (probably previous #1731)
UT Sunday 0131 on KVOH 9975
UT Monday 0259v on Area 51 via WBCQ 5110v-CUSB
Monday 2100 on WRMI 15770 (? Not last week)
Tuesday 1100 on WRMI 9955
Wednesday 0630 on HLR 7265-CUSB
Wednesday 1315 on WRMI 9955
Wednesday 1430 on HLR 7265-CUSB
Wednesday 2100 on WBCQ 7490v
The WOR podcast via Rhein-Main Radio Club has been resumed: or directly under:
** U S A. 1680, August 1 at 0543 UT, `Clark Howard Show` fades up with caller, financial advice, again appropriate DF for KGED Fresno CA; 0558 UT ad for apocalyptic free book from an 800 number, fades for ID, 0600 UT SRN News; 0605 UT plug Dave Ramsey show at 11-2; 0606 UT resume Clark Howard. This matches the KGED sked at:
which now bills itself as ``More Conservative Talk Radio`` but mostly Christian during the daytime on weekends (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 15565, August 1 at 1400, F-G signal but only open carrier/dead air, off by 1406, back on at *1407.5 and still on at 1423. EiBi lists Firedrake/CNR1 jammer at 1200-1430 vs V of Tibet via Tajikistan on 15563 also at 1200-1430 (continuously??), so apparently the carrier is ChiCom jammer transmitter but without any modulation. Nothing about either in Aoki, nor of course, HFCC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 15660, August 1 at 1253, fair signal with something in rapid French, mentions Paris, an FM frequency, liners, even maybe commercial-sounding, with CCI from something weaker. French mod stops at 1256, carrier cut at 1257, uncovering the understation. Nothing in HFCC to account for this, leading me to suspect pariah Taiwan is involved, with another new RFI relay? but Aoki only shows CRI English via Kashgar until 1300, as do HFCC and EiBi, and nothing in French listed anywhere before 1300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 1602 UT August 1
