Glenn Hauser logs July 2-3, 2015

** ARGENTINA. 11710.7, July 3 at 0110, tango and sounds like Spanish talk, maybe so but it`s really the Portuguese hour of RAE, poor signal and lite het from something on 11710.0; at first no crackling spur from 11780 Brasil, but starts to bother by 0116, and at 0117 it`s definitely in Brazuguese (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BRAZIL. 11815, July 3 at 0116, fair signal with music in Portuguese; would be sufficient reception of R. Brasil Central, Goiânia if it were not for the crackling spur from nearby Brasília 11780. Some further chex catch it only during music. Same situation at 0501 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BRAZIL. 11855, July 3 at 0501 tune-in, ``Com a Mãe Aparecida`` program ID, 5 chimes, ``até as 5 da manhã`` = until 08 UT; good R. Aparecida signal, better than usual, yet 11780 and spurs are not stronger than usual (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. 18980, July 3 at 1341, CNR1 jammer, fair-good, which is the Friday & Tuesday RFA Tibetan via Kuwait 13-14 frequency as in HFCC.
Then seeking more CNR1 jammers, but none found 18-11 MHz except some usual inbanders such as 13690, good at 1345 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** COLOMBIA. 5910, July 3 at 0457, nothing but NHK via FRANCE audible a bit before closing, no het or anything, so Alcaraván Radio must be off again after having been heard reactivated June 26-27. Of course, they might as well turn it off voluntarily between 03 and 05 due to NHK, but that could make too much sense. The Colombian telecom authority makes no attempt to protect HJDH from such QRM (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA [and non]. RHC anomalies circa 0500 UT July 3: at 0458, English is already on 6060; is this just a bit early, or all during the previous hour(s) too instead of scheduled Spanish? 6100 is a big open carrier prior to 0500 start; 6165 and 6000, the all-evening frequencies, are on as usual. At 0500, Spanish is still on 9535, mixing with Algeria via FRANCE, but by 0506 recheck, no Cuba while RTA is in French instead of Arabic.
After logging mixing products on 15010 and 15040 yesterday morning via the PL-880 on the porch, I`m trying again this time on the main FRG-7 with much longer wire:
15010, July 3 at 1344, JBA signal detectable, and it is // 15370, i.e., 15730 over 15370 another 360 kHz lower.
15040? The CRI relay carrier is not yet on 15700 to produce a 15700/15370 leapfrog another 330 kHz lower, but when 15700 is on at 1400, I am still not hearing 15040 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT. 13850, July 3 at 0507, R. Cairo, suptorted Arabic and big hum, spreading out to 13840-13860; 0508 hum stops, and now 13860 is clear for Farda (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GREECE. 9935, July 3 at 0107, ERA again suffering from self-imposed big whine = multiple spur carriers, in Greek talk, while // 9420 is clear.
11645, July 3 at 0502, R. Dabanga via VATICAN has low rumbling het, presumably caused by ERA co-channel; so back to clear 9420 at 0503 still in Greek, with ``IFTH`` ID, 0504 IS and another ID, 0604 ``kalimera``. Couldn`t stay with it longer, but was hoping to hear multi-lingual news hour presumably from R. Filia domestic network (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. Sporadic E analog TV DX July 3: Turn on channel 2 at 1430 UT.
1442 on 2, some CCI appears; 1451 the audio is Spanish
1454 on 3, now MUF up to here with some video
1508 on 2, Spanish YL with variety? show; no bugs visible but may be there; shortly a better fade-in has a vertical rectangle in the upper right, including 24 = temperature somewhere.
1517 on 2, ad for Plan B
1527 on 2, now the UR bug is clearer with a large 7 at its upper-right, so likely XHTAU Tampico on regional Azteca-7 network (morning show originating in Monterrey?); now besides the 24 I can also read a clock at 10:27, i.e. CDT = HVCM, so not Tu Canal, XEPM in Juárez as I first suspected, and which is due to quit ch 2 for UHF digital on July 14. A fashion show earlier, a lady with two large numbers on her breast, now one in shorts labeled ``el estilo ``chicken```.
6m Es map shows no Mexican contacts except XE2M on the border in BCN. Weak signals on 2 continue past 1628 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6876-AM, July 3 at 0102, music on poor signal vs storm noise level from nearby in OK, no better at 0123. John Poet had tipped earlier that there would be a The Crystal Ship relay starting about 0030. It seems most 42-43 mb pirates are in eastern N America where they are generally much better heard than way out here in the periphery, especially in summer (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU. 5980, July 3 at 0101, JBA carrier from R. Chaski, Urubamba, and barely able to perceive when it autocuts off, 0105:21*. This is 55.5 seconds later than last successful Chaski-check eight days before on UT June 24 until 0104:25.5*, ergo averaging 6.9 seconds later per day, considerably more than the usual ~6 seconds. So the slippage is slipping. Of course this takes into account the leap-second in the meantime, always comparing to current WWV signals (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SRI LANKA. 11905, July 3 at *0114:14 very poor carrier on from SLBC; music prélude from about 0114:48; talk sign-on from 0115:23, but could not hear any timesignal preceding it. Sometimes they do skip it, but the other events confirm they are *still* running about 19 seconds slower than the rest of the world (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 13558 approx., July 3 at 0120, MTI CW HIFER beacon which is from Stone Mountain GA near Atlanta, weak but considerably better signal than previous morning log at 1340 July 2; now copes with CODAR swishes more than ISM hash circa 13560 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1780 monitoring: confirmed Thursday July 2 at 2100 on WRMI 7570, poorly audible here thru heavy daytime absorption, and presumably much better further east and/or closer, but not too close, to Okeechobee. Next:
Fri 2130 on WRMI 15770
Fri 2130.5 on WRMI 7570
Sat 0630 on Hamburger Lokalradio 7265-CUSB
Sat 1430 on Hamburger Lokalradio 7265-CUSB
Sat 1930v on WA0RCR 1860-AM
Sat 0315v on WA0RCR 1860-AM
Sun 2100 on WRMI 15770
Sun 2300 on WRMI 11580
Mon 0300v on WBCQ 5110v Area 51
Mon 0330 on WRMI 9955
Tue 1100 on WRMI 9955
Wed 0630 on Hamburger Lokalradio 7265-CUSB
Wed 1315 on WRMI 9955
Wed 1430 on Hamburger Lokalradio 7265-CUSB
Wed 2100 on WBCQ 7490v
** U S A. 9330-CUSB, July 3 at 0106, WBCQ is on with YL preacher, VG signal; next check at 0459 it`s off, probably just missed closedown, while 5110-CUSB continues with BS on VP signal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 540, July 3 at 0512 UT, English talk from NNE/SSW, seems news week-in-review; 0514 mentions Iowa and KWMT ID. Most unusual to hear Fort Dodge in the clear at night: no XEWA, XETX, KDFT or CBK. In the daytime on 5 kW groundwave it`s constantly clashing underneath KDFT. Night power is 170 watts, and it is aimed southward (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1080, July 3 at 0130:05 UT, KRLD Dallas makes quick break for change from day to night pattern while maintaining 50 kW, at almost the FCC-appointed time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 1633 UT July 3
