Glenn Hauser logs April 26-27, 2016

** CHINA [and non]. 9440, April 26 at 1356, 1 kHz tone, 1359 VOA Yankee Doodle Dandy sign on, and by 1400 Chinese there`s CCI under from another Chinese station --- what on earth could that be? CNR1 jammer vs VOA Tinang, PHILIPPINES, this hour only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 19070 & 19280, April 27 at 1345, JBA carriers, no doubt RHC second harmonix of 9535 and 9640, but not on 19420; despite the strong fundamentals being 9640 and 9710, while 9535 is quite weak (Glenn hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GREECE. 11645, April 27 at 0534, VOG is S6 here with no whine, // S4 on 9420 with talk, in Greek? Both very poor with flutter. Ivo Ivanov reports 3-5 minutes each of various foreign languages usually appear during the 06-07 UT hour on these (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** INDIA. 9870, April 27 at 1213 no signal from India or China here, (while 9940 has S9+10 from AIR Bengaluru carrier about to open Burmese, 1215 ID and sign-on). 1225 still no 9870, but at 1258 recheck, Indian music makes S8, with CCI from CRI (English via Xi`an), so AIR Vividh Bharati Service is back, as Alokesh Gupta & Jose Jacob report it reactivated ``after many weeks`` as of April 25. The schedule was and presumably once again is, per Aoki: 0015-0435, 0900-1200, 1230-1740, oblivious of the CCCCI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. Severe storms, almost-tornado outbreak in central OK as has been predicted for a week, April 26 into UT 27: Big 4 OKC TV stations are in WTW coverage afternoon and evening. Usually a bunch of radio stations ``partner`` with each, but the only such promo I catch is on KOCO-7 ``5`` for KGOU 106.3 (never mind KROU 105.7, KWOU 88.1 and all the other OU relays?); and Hank FM 99.7 (KANH Mustang, a prime spot for tornado hits) (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 5765, April 26 at 0539 tune-by, Brother HyStairical via WRMI is making the most of his ``antagonist``, me, by replaying the bit from months ago yet again; and also on 5890 via WWCR but not synchronized; at 0543 I`m again hearing a weak BS on 5980, which is the WWCR leapfrog mixing product of 5890 over 5935 DGS/PMS; and next to yet another BHS on 5985 WRMI.
I daresay The LDPOG could really join the boneyard on his website and if a minion keep playing old tapes, no one need know. His ``heirs`` would then be free to siphon off the dough still coming in and let the SW contracts eventually expire (and with them, how many SW stations would expire?) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SUDAN [and non]. 11650+, April 27 at 0525, R. Dabanga via VATICAN is very poor, but still with het on hi side from Sudan carrier jammer, about the same as April 25, 1255 Hz away (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SUDAN SOUTH [non]. Eye Radio launches nationwide shortwave broadcasts
JUBA (26 Apr.) --- Eye Media, the parent organization of Eye Radio, has announced that it has launched a new shortwave broadcast service to complement its existing FM broadcasts in South Sudan. The broadcasts starting today will bring listeners news and information in Arabic, as well as Dinka, Nuer, Shilluk, Bari, Zande and Lutoho.
According to a press release today from Eye Media, "the Eye Radio Shortwave will cover the whole of South Sudan including remote areas in which communities are not able to access FM radio staions."
Eye Radio is one of the fastest expanding media houses in South Sudan after launching FM repeaters in several state capitals last year, expanding the station's reach beyond Juba where it is based.
In its press release, the station noted that the funding for this initiative came from USAID, the international development agency of the US government.
Only two other media houses broadcast on shortwave with content specifically for South Sudan: Radio Tamazuj, which operates two hours daily on the shortwave, and Voice of America, which produces the 30 minute program South Sudan in Focus.
Radio Tamazuj broadcasts from 6:30 to 7:30 each morning on 11650 kHz on the 25 meter band and 9600 kHz on the 31 meter band, and 15150 kHz and 15550 kHz on the 19 meter band each evening from 17:30 to 18:30.
Eye Radio's new broadcasts will run from 7:00 to 8:00 each morning on 11730 kHz on the 25 meter band and 17730 kHz on the 17 meter band from 19:00 to 20:00 (via JOSE MIGUEL ROMERO ROMERO, dxldyg via DXLD)
So the Eye Radio times in UT are 0400-0500 on 11730, 1600-1700 on 17730. Is anyone hearing it? Not even a carrier here after 0400 UT Tuesday April 26 on 11730 (Glenn Hauser, OK, 0448 UT April 26, dxldyg via DX LISTENING DIGEST) So checking further:
17730, April 26 at 1607, JBA carrier less than the S3 noise level.
11730, April 27 after 0400, no signal
17730, April 27 at 1610, poor signal in non-English; (roughly equivalent to 17850v which is known to be France with Oromo Voice as in Aoki, not HFCC). But site for Eye is unknown (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TURKEY. 11980.041, April 27 at 0537, poor signal with flutter, Turkish music, VOT is usually slightly off-frequency to the hi side (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1822 monitoring: confirmed Tuesday April 26 at 2130 on WRMI 15770, fair; also confirmed Tue Apr 26 at 2334 on WBCQ 9329.98 approx.-CUSB. Also confirmed Wed Apr 27 at 1315.5 on WRMI 9955 (after another Famagusta Radio at 1300 filled mostly with music, IDs in English and French, promos rather than news). Next WORs:
Wed 2100 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Wed 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
** U S A. 5050, Tue April 26 at 2255, no RSA signal from WWRB, nor later this evening. There are certainly no hard and fast rules when it comes to WWRB operations, but Lou KF4RCA Johnson in GA heard the ``Crazy Dave Radio Show`` April 23 say ``WWRB would be a three day station. Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. He's flying the rest of the week`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** VIETNAM [and non]. 9920, April 27 at 1210, FEBC Iba, PHILIPPINES back here after experimenting with 9922 as in April 24 log, q.v. for discussion of contradictory language listings. At this hour on Wednesdays, both Aoki and EiBi agree it`s Rad, which means Rade/Ede, spoken by 0.2 mega in Vietnam. AND the Vietnamese whoop-whoop jammer remains on 9921 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
This report despatched at 1732 UT April 27
