[HCDX] Glenn Hauser logs January 29-30-31, 2018

** ALBANIA [non]. 5850, Jan 30 at 2327, music ending R. Tirana relay via WRMI, then IS at 2328, so still funxioning from 2300, Mon-Sat; very good (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ANGUILLA. 6090, Jan 30 at 2335 check, Caribbean Beacon is off again (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BRAZIL. 4875.251, Jan 31 at 0055, JBA carrier from presumed R. Roraima, Boa Vista, the northernmost ZY SW station. Always off-frequency but has been reported as high at 4875.3 and as low as 4874.9 lately; I`ve never caught it on the low side (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1915, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TIBET [non]. 7493, Jan 30 at 2328-2330+, JBA carrier, enough to make a het if one listen carefully against BS via WBCQ 7489.94. It`s Voice of Tibet via TAJIKISTAN, quite coincidentally here, as reported by Ivo Ivanov:
2300-2305 on  7493 DB  100 kW / 131 deg to CeAs Tibetan
2305-2330 on  7487 DB  100 kW / 131 deg to CeAs Tibetan
2330-2335 on  7493 DB  100 kW / 131 deg to CeAs Tibetan
2335-2345 on  7487 DB  100 kW / 131 deg to CeAs Tibetan
2345-2400 on  7488 DB  100 kW / 131 deg to CeAs Tibetan
Very subject to change in the exact switchover times, as not on 7487 when first heard, or to a totally different group of frequencies. ChiCom jamming could stay on 7490 for these, but no close het heard to WBCQ; nor 7485, 7495, depending on proximity (Glenn Hauser, WORLD OF RADIO 1915, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TURKEY. 5960.054, Jan 30 at 2337, Turkish music on VOT, S8 to S9+10. Habitually off-frequency, but more so than usual on this one. Off the air an hour later, so no bonus German (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1914 monitoring: confirmed UT Tue Jan 30 at 0038, the 0030 on WRMI 7730, very good; same time on WBCQ 9330v-CUSB: nothing audible. Also confirmed Tue Jan 30 at 2030 on WRMI 7780, fair but better than somewhat stronger // 9455 which has Firedragon QRM. Not a good idea ever to share a frequency with Radio Free Asia! Also confirmed Tue Jan 30 at 2130 on WRMI 9455, now with less CCI.
WORLD OF RADIO 1915 contents: Albania non, Anguilla, Armenia, Bahrain, Bolivia, Bonaire, Bouvet, Brazil, Bulgaria, Cuba, Denmark, Ethiopia non, Germany, Hawaii and non, India, Indonesia, Korea North & South, Kyrgyzstan, Nigeria non, Russia, Sikkim, South Africa, South Carolina, Tibet non, UK, USA, Zambia; and the propagation outlook.

Full WOR schedule via all media, podcast access:
** U S A. 9395 // 7780, Mon Jan 29 at 2115 check, once again WRMI is running Oldies music instead of scheduled `The Power Hour` at 21-23 weekdays. Didn`t check if TPH started off OK today at 2100, as it had the last several days only to find Oldies going later in same hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 3185 & 3215, UT Tue Jan 30 at 0119 check, WWRB is on neither frequency, while it had been active Jan 29 at 0218 on 3185; and Jan 28 at 0138 on 3215.
Also received this from Dave Frantz of WWRB, Jan 29 at 1236 UT:
``Beacon experiments --- Hey Glenn, I run some beacon experiments on 475 kc, you should be able to copy. The beacon is carrier phase encoded for my experiment plus has the ID N/A every 15 seconds using space modulation. Experiment. You can hear it with regular AM radio. Let me know how copy.``
Dave, Tried last night but no go. Early evening and around 0700 UT. Would it also be audible, or better audible with SSB/BFO on??
Haven`t heard or heard about your 529 beacon for a long time. Is that off the air for good? (Glenn to Dave, Jan 30, via WORLD OF RADIO 1915, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
? what is ``space modulation``? Beacon was last reported in 2012y, from 2007y: ``529, TENNESSEE, Morrison, LYQ (WQHL966, NDB aero beacon)`` (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier searches, on the R75 with usual E-W longwire of about 100`, so no DFing, but better sensitivity than on the handheld DX-398 I often use for TPs around sunrise. Normally run full bore Preamp 2, but to reduce overload on MW for this, Preamp 1 or no preamp.
Method: USB, set to 9 kHz steps offset 1 kHz below the 9-kHz plan, so I can hear, or not, a 1 kHz het, sometimes even amid heavy QRM 1 or 2 kHz away. 10-kHz even channels where they coincide with 9-kHz spacing are not included, of course, and some 9 kHz channels are blocked by IBOC peaks from US stations. Many are JJJBA, but the strongest ones get a * even tho still not enough to pull any audio. Not necessarily logged in the order shown, but rearranged for convenient reference:
Jan 20 at 0143-0158 UT: 531, 621, 639, 648, 666, 684, 693, 729, 774, 837, 855, 882, 909, 936*, 1044, 1053, 1125, 1215, 1296, 1503, 1575.
Jan 20 at 0227-0230 UT: 531, 549, 558, 621, 639, 711(2 beating), 729, 774, 855, 864, 882, 909, 936, 1008, 1053*, 1089, 1098, 1116, 1125, 1161, 1215, 1341, 1413.
Jan 20 at 0720-0723 UT, some are still coming in, most likely from NW Europe: 558, 693, 846 [could be Kiritimati, which is what I have always assumed when checking only 846], 909, 936, 1044, 1053, 1116, 1197, 1215.
Jan 21 at 0058-0102 UT: 576, 693, 828, 837, 855, 882, 935, 999, 1044, 1053*, 1089, 1179, 1197, 1215*, 1575. No doubt experienced TA DXers on east coast can make good guesses about many of these (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
