Logs
** CUBA. 9565, Oct 23 at 0611, the Beepers are back. These appear only on jammed Radio Martà frequencies, but always at hours far beyond when RM is on them. Normally we only hear residual pulse noise jamming, but occasionally strings of beeps appear when monitored with BFO. There are a variety of pitches, indicating a set of slightly offset frequencies, as in CW. This time most are strings of dah-dit, as if sending N over and over, but periodically some much longer strings of continuous beeps. Here`s what they sound like now as I am on 9565.000-USB with no changes in my tuning, but used Cyberlink Audio Editor to boost signal and reduce noise:
http://www.w4uvh.net/9565beepjam.mp3

Originally I could also hear a slight het from the off-frequency minus Brazilian. I conjexure that the DentroCuban Jamming Command operators are having a bit of fun, perhaps axually ``talking`` to each other. AFAIK, no one else has reported on these, least of all Arnie Coro.

I have previously caught Beepers on e.g. 11930. March 16, 2015, I posted this recording from 11930:
http://www.w4uvh.net/11930beepjam.rm
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH. 5920, Oct 23 at 1320, romantic song, 1322 M&W in Korean with some SAH. Must be Voice of Freedom on one of its alternative frequencies. No jamming audible here, but at 1347 noise jamming only on 6135, the original and sometimes VOF channel. It`s a 10 kW ND transmitter at Hwaseong. Aoki tries to keep up with the changes, but hasn`t got to this one yet: says the active dates for 5920 in different timespans were:
``0300-0800 Jun 1-6, 20-Aug 9
0900-1500 Sep 7-Oct 18
1600-2000 Oct 23`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 5980, Oct 23 at 1328, RNZP has finally done it, moved from 6170; 5980 had been registered with HFCC a month ago, but stayed on 6170 after 1259. 6170 is now vacant, but remains unclear why such a change is necessary; perhaps getting a head start on B-17, when 6170 may well have QRM from North Korea? But NZ may not stay on 49m all summer.

Programming now is narration by some guy with music. Stronger than weak adjacents on 5975 & 5985, and no 5980 CCI. However, deliberately picking a frequency which is jammed at any hour is risky as Cuba isn`t too careful to turn off jammers beyond Radio Martà hours. At least any residual jamming here will be mostly into Cuban daytime. Sked at
http://www.radionz.co.nz/international/listen
has now been amended to show 5980 at 1259-1650 Sun-Fri and 1259-1758 on Sat. Rest of it looks about same as before, tho not checked hour by hour. Now added to it is the B-17 sked, from Oct 29, and indeed 5980 is gone again, so only very temporary; and lots of other changes:

** OKLAHOMA. 9534.00-USB, Oct 23 at 0619, very surprised to hear VOLMET, soon IDed at 0620 as Trenton Military; also some other talk QRM. This has got to be some kind of image, // loud and clear 6754-USB, which is 2780 kHz below. 9534 is next to a weak Algeria/France on 9535. Aha! 2780 is where I get the second harmonic of my strongest local, 1390 KCRC a few miles away. Lately 2780 has not been very strong, but it is now, and the modulation is always distorted. Perhaps there is an anomaly with my longwire antenna connexion to the R75, or KCRC is more out of whack than usual. KCRC customarily shows up at other +1390 additions to strong AM SW frequencies like WRMI from 7 MHz in the low 9 MHz band (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAIPAN. 11850.039, Oct 23 at 1402, weak M&W in tonal Asian language, Cambodian? No, must be Vietnamese as scheduled from RFA at 1400-1500, 100 kW, 270 degrees from Agignan Point. Note, the previous hour on 11850 is also Vietnamese, but from Radio Veritas Asia via Palauig-Zambales, Philippines, no doubt on a different precise frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TIBET [non]. 15528, Oct 23 at 1327, JBA carrier, surely V. of Tibet via TAJIKISTAN on signature split frequency: NDXC/Aoki almost has it as of today:
`15527*VOICE OF TIBET 1236-1305 1234567 Tibetan 131 Dushanbe-Yangiyul
15528*VOICE OF TIBET 1346-1400 1234567 Tibetan 131 Dushanbe-Yangiyul`
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1900 monitoring: confirmed Sunday October 22 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9330.06v-CUSB, fair. Also confirmed UT Monday Oct 23 from 0301 on Area 51 webcast (and WBCQ 5130.35 confirmed on air during HRI at 0334, poor). Also confirmed UT Mon Oct 23 at 0334 on WRMI webcast, while 9955 is a JBA carrier equal to the JBA jamming. Next:
Mon 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 2030 WRMI 11580 to NE, 9455 to WNW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7730, Monday October 23 at 0626, WRMI is S9+30 with World Music fill, during an hour occupied Tue-Sat by Argentine relay. It`s the latin jazz tune with sax solos, really neat and one I never tire of hearing; followed by a rendition of Ave Maria for contrast (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775.023, Oct 23 at 1426, KVOH is S9+20, off-frequency and wobbling slightly, but still no spurs or noise field (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** YEMEN [non]. 11860, Oct 23 at 1423, Arabic discussion from Republic of Yemen Radio, good S+10 to S8, via SAUDI ARABIA?

Hans Johnson has published a research paper about SA SW, via the shortwavesites yg, indicating that they are known to have 4 transmitters near Riyadh and 4 near Jeddah, but at certain hours like this, 10 frequencies are in use, so how to explain that? See
http://www.w4uvh.net/SaudiTX.pdf

Thanks. Iâve been wondering why I couldnât hear Indonesiaâs usual het on 9525.94. This evening, 9525 was dominated by the CRI Russian service, which put a very nice signal into my area, near Washington, DC. (300 kw beamed pretty much right at us.) CRI went off at 2057, and I was able to detect a weak het on 9524.94, which went off at 2102. I assume this was RRI.
