Glenn Hauser logs December 17, 2015

** CHINA [and non]. 7270, Dec 17 at 1345, a carrier is on here; 1356 can make out some talk at VP level; 1400 timesignal as talk continues, then music, and at 1403 I make the music // 7365, i.e. CNR1 jammers, but there is also a weaker second signal. I`m checking this out because of a report of 7270 during the 14 hour as V. of China, clandestine from Taiwan.
But in all such cases, the first assumption one must make, is hearing a ChiCom jammer. If that can be ruled out, then maybe it`s something else listed. This also requires being alert to the * next to frequencies in the Aoki list, meaning jammed! which seem to get lost or ignored. Ron Howard was also checking this today and found no sign of V. of China, but the second signal was another from inside China, PBS Nei Menggu in Mongolian.
V. of China is certainly an obscure California-based clandestine, allegedly on air only two hours a day at 14 and 23 on 7270; see page 505 of WRTH 2015 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** INDONESIA. 9524.99, Dec 17 at 1411, JBA carrier from VOI is audibly one smidgen below 9525.00 on the R75, or maybe 9524.98 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KOREA NORTH [non]. 5985, Thu Dec 17 at 1339, Sea Breeze in English with usual sounders, mentioning human rights, 1341 piano interlude, S8.
Ron Howard tells why last Thursday they were not in English, but Korean: ``Hi Glenn, Surely last week`s anomaly of not having English on Thursday was due to the fact it was "North Korean Human Rights Abuses Awareness Week," (Dec 10-16) which incorporated an international symposium by the Japanese government (which was carried via Shiokaze?).
Ron Howard, San Francisco`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NEWFOUNDLAND. 2598-USB, Dec 17 at 0738, YL with marine weather in English, Very poor S3, so what is scheduled at this hour? Per
it`s: ``MCTS Placentia / VCP - Broadcasts 07:37 St. Lawrence 2598J3E
Radiotelephony --- Technical marine synopsis and forecasts for marine areas 231, 232, 233, 234, 235, 236, 237 and 238.
Weather forecasts for marine area 213.
Ice Edge and Conditions South Coast east of Penguin Island, East Coast to Cape Freels.
Notices to Fish Harvesters (when available).``
St. Lawrence is on the Burin peninsula, west side of Placentia Bay in the extreme south end of the island, just east of St Pierre & Miquelon, FRANCE (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1600, Dec 17 at 1531 UT check on groundwave, KUSHing is a steady S9+20 on the R75 with E/W longwire and Preamp2; noting belatedly as a reference point upon suspicion that they have quintupled power as permitted; the CP would have expired in a few weeks. At night they must remain only 70 watts, always non-direxional.
BTW, I see the new FCC website has added an ``AM Revitalization`` link to the AM Queries; for KUSH, it bring up a huge list of FM translators by frequency above 92 MHz: ``*** 309 FM Records within 403.14 km distance [=250 miles] of 35Â 59' 13.00" N, 96Â 42' 39.00" W ***`` --- supposed to help an AM station try to pick one out to acquire?? The so-called AM Revitalization Effort is explained here:

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 1650, Dec 17 at 1324 UT, dominant signal is in Spanish about Nueva York, so El Paso or Denver? Not hearing much of anything from gospel music KFSW Sallisaw lately since its conversion from KYHN, so wonder if they are really running nominal 10/1 kW U1 non-direxional? During Dec should already be on day power from 1315 UT to 2300 UT (January: 1330 UT to 2330 UT) (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OMAN. 15140, Dec 17 at 1412, RSO is on again today, S7 to S9 with rock song in English by some currently popular YL; 1416 OM DJ plugging something going to happen at ``9 pm``; recheck at 1432 there is music rather than news in English on half-hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SAUDI ARABIA. 15380, Dec 17 at 1353, Qur`an is S5 with reverb, from BSKSA. Per Aoki, this 500 kW at 310 degrees USward is about to go off at 1357. No correlating with sunset here like Yemen, since this one is all-Qur`an-all-the-time, HQS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1804 monitoring: ready for first broadcasts Dec 17; I sleep thru the first one:

** YEMEN [non]. 11860, Dec 17 at 1436:42, R. Sana`a stops the ME music abruptly for another Qur`anic Call to Prayer lasting about 2 minutes, quick announcement in Arabic and more secular music; 1444 an echoey speech, 1446 rousing music; 1458 another speech this time with music under. Very strong signal as usual. Neat how QCTP correlates nicely with calculated sunset times in Aden per 1437 today; by a week from now latening to 1441, so let`s see if the interruptions track right along with that (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 4870, Dec 17 at 1327, carrier cutting off and on and off until 1328*, vs a much weaker carrier slightly on lo side. Suspect the first one is AIR Kingsway, INDIA, attempting to start the Nepali hour as scheduled; don`t know if they kept trying and stayed on later; and the lower one RRI Wamena, always reported off-low (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 5931.0-CW, Dec 17 at 1334, S4 not-hand-keyed message with lots of numbers but not exclusively numbers, continuously past 1338. Never heard any DE to try to copy an ID. INTRUDER (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 6035.02 approx., Dec 17 at 1343, today I have one VP carrier here, so will not hazard a guess whether it`s Bhutan or Shangri-La. Ron Howard followed up:
Hi Glenn, I suggest checking BBS/Bhutan again today (Dec 17), as it's Bhutan's "National Day" and BBS might have an extended schedule and special programs. Worth checking! Thanks very much to Sei-ichi Hasegawa for the alert about their "National Day"!
[but later:] ``Hi Glenn, Sorry to say I tuned in 6034.95, on Dec 17 at 1131 through subsequent checking till 1314 and ONLY heard PBS Yunnan, with fairly decent reception. No hint of BBS. Disappointed! Maybe they had been out celebrating all day, hi. Ron`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report dispatched at 1956 UT December 17
