Glenn Hauser logs January 29, 2016

** CHINA. 6200, Jan 29 at 1339, S9+10 western pop songs, 1342, slow romantic song by YL; presumed V. of Jinling, Nanning (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 10345, Jan 29 at 0605, YL Spanish spy numbers alternating with digital blaaps, with some noise at S9+40. Still going past 0646. I really find these broadcasts quite boring and usually skip them; however, this one was first noted on 11735, mixed with KCRC ESPN, +1390 kHz away caused by overloading R75 unless I ATT it, turn off preamp (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 15700, Jan 29 at 1401, CRI English relay at S9+30 is instead open carrier/dead air except for some hum; modulation cuts on after 1402, joining news in progress. This happens far too often tnx to the sloppyrators in Cuba, but at least they are on the right frequency today (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GREECE. 9935, Jan 29 at 0653, VOG on with Greek talk, very poor signal and modulation seems defective, much weaker than 9420 at 0656 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** INDIA. 11670, Jan 29 at 2147, surprised to hear ``Abide With Me``, a Christian hymn on AIR GOS, but maybe the tune is otherwise known in India? Surely not a missionary station intruding on the frequency after Cuba has finished doing so at 2130. Then a military band which is more like AIR, and at 2150 even more so with a South Asian song. Heavy flutter from S9 to S5, which is what`s left of a 500 kW transpolar signal aimed 325 degrees from Bengaluru (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KYRGYZSTAN. 4009.84, Jan 29 at 1312, S5 carrier, presumed Radio 1 - Birinichi Radio, which has been reported recently off-frequency as 4009.9 by Eike Bierwirth. Aoki shows on the air from 00 to 19 UT, with a few segments in western languages, not mentioned in the WRTH, such as German M-F at 1410-1420, Dutch Wed only at 1420-1450.
Dutch?! Virtually a goner from SW since the self-destruxion of Radio Nederland. ADDX language schedule shows only a couple of private programs/stations on 6005, presumably via Germany, not a bit by international broadcasters. Of course, The Mighty KBC includes some Dutch at least for commercials, and there are scads of pirates mainly in the X-band (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PAPUA NEW GUINEA [and non]. 7325-, Jan 29 at 1325, all I can hear is one poor signal in Japanese, CRI; but from 1357 it`s off and I do hear a JBA carrier on the lo side, so Wantok Radio Light is still there (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SAUDI ARABIA. 21505.025, Jan 29 at 1411, Arabic music and talk from BSKSA, always off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TAJIKISTAN. 4765, Jan 29 at 1300, S9 carrier is just barely modulated, probably R. Tajikistan near grayline, on air 23-20 UT per EiBi. See also KYRGYZSTAN (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TIBET [non]. 11517, Jan 29 at 1414, S7 talk and a weaker carrier on 11512, i.e. V. of Tibet via TAJIKISTAN. Nominal switchover from 11512 to 11517, per Ivo, is 1415, but this indicates they are two separate transmitters. Also some noise around 11510, maybe jamming; and at 1416 another JBA carrier on 12007, which would have been used in the previous hour, but always shifting around (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 4041.0-USB, Jan 29 at 1313, informal Army MARS net commenting on reception; 1316 ID fonetikaly as AAR7AD and AAR7AH; then they discuss some abbr`d calls from roster such as 7RL and IA. Seems the net call is A7A.
AAR7AH is Lt. Col. Don Palmer, also in the Nebraska wing of the CAP.
Google search on AAR7AD leads right to this interesting autobio at
``Donald R Moore
411 Catalpa Street
Independence, KS 67301
I was first licensed in December of 1962 at the age of 13 years old. My first station was a SX-99 receiver and a Adventure transmitter. My original call sign was WN5FFK, and my home was in Blackwell, Oklahoma. I then received WA5FFK when I passed my general, and I now have the vanity call sign of W5FFK. I went on the air on Christmas eve, 1962 since my Adventure transmitter was my Christmas [gift]. I still have the Johnson Viking Adventure and try to make a contact with it each Christmas season.
My profession is a broadcast engineer and electronics technician. I used to own radio station KOKB, a 1000 watt daytime [sic] AM on 1580 kHz, in Blackwell, OK.
I also installed 5 radio stations in the country of Honduras, in Central America while working with Evangelistic Faith Missions. In all total our family served in Honduras for 16 years. Many have listened to HRPC broadcasting from San Luis, Honduras on 3250 kHz.
I am a retired Army signal officer. Serving as the Communications and Electronic Officer of the 1/189 Field Artillery Battalion, and the 45th Infantry Brigade.
I returned back to the United States from Honduras in 2006 and worked several years as a Avionics Tech for Cessna Aircraft company, in Independence, Kansas. now I work in the electrical department for Standard Motors Corporation, in their engineering lab, Independence, Kansas.
I married my wife, Devona in 1971 and we are still together. I have two daughters, and two grandsons. My oldest daughter, Sheryl Denision, has the call KB5QNL. My youngest daughter Kara Moore, is KC0UXI.
My interest mainly now is in vintage radio, on 80 meters and 160 meters. I am a member of Army Mars, and hold the call AAR7AD.``
** U S A. 17665, Jan 29 at 1406-1409*, S9+20 open carrier, no doubt VOA Greenville test to be sure it`ll work when next needed, *1700 in Portuguese on 17655 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1810 monitoring: confirmed Friday Jan 29 at 2130 on WRMI, 15770, now quite a poor signal here off the side: let`s hope it is better off to the northeast aimed at Europe, but does the MUF hold up that far into the winter night? Also confirmed at 2130.6 on WRMI 7570, much better here aimed NW at us. Next:
Sat 0730 HLR 7265-CUSB to SW
Sat 1530 HLR 7265-CUSB to SW
Sat 2030v WA0RCR 1860-AM ND?
Sun 0410v WA0RCR 1860-AM ND?
Sun 0900 WRMI 5850 to NW
Mon 0400v WBCQ 5110v-CUSB Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0430.5 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Tue 1200 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 1415.5 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 2200 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
** YEMEN [non]. 11860, Jan 29 at 1455-1515, Radio Sana`a, going from mostly music before 1500 to mostly talk afterwards, and no interruption for a Call To Prayer, with which it seems as if they have decided to dispense. As local sunset proceeds past 1500, it could be more disruptive to programming flow (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 5959.95, Jan 29 at 1329, weak station talking in unID language, considerably off-frequency, so what could that be? Searching archive on 5959.9 gets this from 2011y; remember that one from PNG?:
``5959.980, 28.10 1033, R Fly, Tabubil LHU/PAX95 (Lars Jeppesen,
Uppsala, Sweden, SW Bulletin Nov 13 translated by editor Thomas Nilsson for DX LISTENING DIGEST) PAX95 not explained, but could be name of a DXpedition (gh)``
But this current one is perhaps more likely, tho Aoki doesn`t deal with precise frequency variations: ``5960 PBS Xinjiang 1100-1800 1234567 Chinese 100 ND Urumqi TKS 4408N 08653E XJBS b15`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. Re BOLIVIA, 6155.11, Jan 29 at 0125, JBA carrier presumed R. Fides on its habitual offset --- maybe not, since UAE site also achieves frequency inaccuracy. Ivo Ivanov reported circa Jan 26:
``Additional, unregistered frequencies of BBC
0100-0300 on 6155 DHA 250 kW / ??? deg to ???? English``
This report dispatched at 2334 UT January 29
