Glenn Hauser logs April 21-22, 2019   
Monday, April 22 2019

** ALGERIA [non]. 9655, April 21 at 2152, French, not Arabic and
certainly not Qur`an from RTA relay via FRANCE, contrary to this:

``SWLDXBulgaria News April 6-7 (publications â19126-â19150)
Reception of Telediffusion d'Algerie on April 6:
2100-2159 9655 ISS 500 kW / 160 deg to CEAf Arabic Holy Quran px``

About equal to another French signal on 9650, GUINEA

** CUBA. 15370, April 21 at 2158, RHC Spanish, S9+40 but distorted,
more so than // 11760 with degraded program audio. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5900, April 22 at 0541, LA music poor S9, undermodulated.
Something new from Bulgaria? No! It`s a new leapfrog from RHC, // 6100
over 6000, which are S9+40 and S9+30 respectively, another 100 kHz
lower. This means that 6100 and 6000 now have to be from the same
transmitter site among the three employed by RHC. Contrary to Ivo:

0500-0600 on 5040 BAU 100 kW / 083&263 to Cuba English
0500-0600 on 6000 QVC 250 kW / 010 deg to ENAm English
0500-0600 on 6060 BAU 100 kW / 010 deg to ENAm English
0500-0600 on 6100 BAU 100 kW / 310 deg to WNAm English
0500-0600 on 6165 BAU 100 kW / 340 deg to WNAm English

Recently it had been clear that 6000 was the odd one out, often
closing earlier than the others, but now 6000 must be Bauta, or 6100
must have switched to QuivicÃn.

Another way to compare sites is whether there be an echo between
different frequencies, but I have been reluctant to draw such
conclusions as a slight delay could also occur between receivers due
to DSP. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** EAST TURKISTAN. 15410, April 22 at 1419, Chinese at S5-S8 with
flutter, OOFSOB, stronger than similar signal on 15590, CRI English.
Aoki/NDXC shows 15410 this hour only is CRI Chinese via Kashi-Saiba
site. Per HFCC both are on 500 kW 308-degree beams, but 15590 is
Urumqi instead.

15110, April 22 at 1419, also Chinese at S7-S9, but not // 15410 since
this is CNR1 jamming or VOA Chinese this hour only via Philippines.

9180, April 22 at 1432, Chinese at S3-S6 seems // 15110 and not 15410,
i.e. CNR1 jammer here vs Sound of Hope, Taiwan. This is the only WOOB
jammer found in a 9.0-15.0 MHz bandscan (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** IRAN. 13735, April 22 at 1417, S6-S8 of dead air --- HFCC shows it
has to be VIRI in Russian at 1320-1420, 500 kW, 336 degrees also
USward from Sirjan. Was the whole hour dead, or finished a bit early?

** NEW ZEALAND [and non]. 9700, April 22 at 0534, VG S9+10/20, SSOB in
English, BBCWS programme relay about waste management. RNZI QSY from
9630 as I recommended due to Brasil 9630.50v het --- but which tonight
is a JBA carrier all by itself. Schedule now shows this as first day
of new frequency, 0459-0658, and no other changes:

For a fleeting moment at tune-in, I wondered if this were Romania,
which has been here in past. It`s still sked on 9700-AM for 0600-0630
German, which could well be a collision problem, unchecked here yet.
(RRI 0530 English is on 6015, 7325-DRM, 15410, 17760) (Glenn Hauser,

** TAIWAN. 9560, April 22 at 1429, S3-S5 open carrier, soon starting
upbeat theme music and Japanese announcement. Aoki shows Furusato no
Kaze for North Korean abductees, from Tamsui district (Glenn Hauser,

** U S A. 13565-CW, April 22 at 1412, K6FRC beacon from Patterson,
California is JBA vs CODAR. I check the 13550-13570 HIFER band just
about every day, and this is the first time K6FRC or any other beacon
has been detected since Feb 20 and before that Dec 19. Notice how
close these are to two-month intervals, so I wonder if K6FRC be only
sporadically active. How about all the others listed --- on and not
propagating, or off? That other Californian, with 100 kW, KVOH would
surely be audible if on 13 MHz band now instead of stuck 4+ MHz higher
on 17775; but target is beyond OK (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1978 monitoring: confirmed Sunday April 21 at
2130 on WRMI 7780, very poor S7-S8.

Also confirmed UT Monday April 22 at 0130 on WRMI 9395, VG S9+10/20;
preceded at 0129 by very outdated ID as ``Son-power Radio on 5850,
7475, 9395``!

Also confirmed UT Monday April 22 at 0230 on WRMI 7780, fair

Also confirmed UT Monday April 22 from 0302 on Area 51 webcast --- but
checking WBCQ 5130.42v at 0320, vs storm noise from Kansas, S9+10 of
dead air! Was entire WOR thus? Recheck webcast and still running OK

Also confirmed UT Monday April 22 after 0330 on WRMI 9955, poor S6-S7.

1815 UT Monday IRRS 7290 Romania
0100 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780
0800 UT Tuesday Unique Radio 5045-USB NSW [2 editions, April 30+]
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955

[it appears we will now be running on a Friday-to-Thursday cycle, so
freshest new airings are on weekends]

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:

** U S A. 5085, April 22 at 0132, WTWW-2 with S9+40 of dead air;
awaken, Ted (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
