Glenn Hauser logs March 18-19, 2017  View Printable Version 
Sunday, March 19 2017

Logs
** BRAZIL. 6162, never mind my March 18 at 0621 log of a blob here seemingly from 6180; March 19 at 0000 similar blobs circa 6151 and 6163 are traced to VCRs near one of my SW radios, but at 0022 are not heard on two other radios further away. Yet, as 6180 RNA/RNB modulation is deteriorating, be alert for reÃmergence of real transmitted spurblobs, which can be matched to modulation or at least pauses during talk on // 11780, as I did previously, and were heard by others (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** COLOMBIA. 5910+, March 19 at 0027, no signal from AlcaravÃn Radio. They ought to take advantage of a clear frequency before and after the 01-03 collision with ROMANIA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CYPRUS [non]. 9955, Sat March 18 at 2306, WRMI is VG over jamming with `Hey, Jude``, `FG Radio` ID and announcement. Certainly a nice tune, but why is this Cypriot ``station`` wasting its paltry 15 minutes a week on WRMI by playing off-topic old rock music? And it`s sponsored by a ``news`` paper, the Famagusta Gazette.

11580 at same time, 2306 March 18, has ThaÃs in Spanish, no doubt `Viva Miami`, and 6855 is not // either with some otherlanguage music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6945-USB, March 18 at 2350, ``Shake, Rattle & Roll``, S9+10, and 2354 Wolverine Radio ID as anticipated. Still rocking S9+20 at 0022 March 19. Which word is the theme this time? ``Shake``, per a bi-dozen other logs here:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,33512.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** RWANDA [non]. [Re gh`s log of March 18 on 15420:] Itahuka is for Rwanda; the Burundi stuff is Radio Publique Africaine instead. And Itahuka took in December the shortwave slot of Radio Inyabutatu ("Rwandese Protocol to Return the Kingdom") which is not exactly defunct, just no longer on shortwave (Kai Ludwig, March 19, dxldyg via DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Tnx, Kai, I was trying to remember which it was, so checked the Aoki listing:

``15420 Radio Itahuka 1800-1900 ......7 Kirundi 250 315 Talata-Volonondry 1 MDG 1843S 04737E MBR b16 Dec.3``

Kirundi? That means Burundi, not Rwanda - Kinyarwanda. Another reason not to rely on Aoki or any one source. I`m afraid I had some previous logs of this misfiled too. EiBi also has it wrong with language KiR which per his readme.txt key means KiRundi, not KinyaRwanda.

HFCC avoids the issue as usual with mul for multilingual, and not even publishes the name of the ``station`` being relayed. We have to rely on such sources, since we can hardly distinguish K-Rwanda from K-Rundi!

This website confirms that Radio Itahuka is ``The Voice of Rwanda National Congress - La Voix de Congres National Rwandais``
http://www.blogtalkradio.com/radioitahuka

So: the following previous reports have to be moved to RWANDA [non] from the original BURUNDI [non]:

15420, Saturday March 4 at 1857, the SSOB on 19m is this! Radio Itahuka on its weekly hour via MADAGASCAR --- S9+10 but just barely modulated in African language, presumably Kirundi [sic]. Refund from MBR? Itahuka is cut off still talking at 1900*. With 250 kW at 315 degrees from Talata, much stronger signal (but less modulated) than 15710 WHRIBS which normally inbooms but is now only S6-S4; than 15500 & 15390 Spain; than 15770 WRMIBS; than 15580 VOA; than 15825 WWCR. WWV reports: ``Solar-terrestrial indices for 03 March follow. Solar flux 78 and estimated planetary A-index 22. The estimated planetary K-index at 1800 UTC on 04 March was 3. Space weather for the past 24 hours has been minor. Geomagnetic storms reaching the G1 level occurred`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1868, DX LISTENING DIGEST 17-10)

15420, Saturday March 11 at 1827, presumed R. Itahuka again in dead air during its only weekly hour, via MADAGASCAR, S7-S5; at 1840 by really concentrating, I think I hear some modulation, just barely. Isn`t anybody paying attention at Talata, MBR and/or wherever this originate? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

15420, Saturday March 18 at 1800 tune-in, Radio Itahuka ID right away and talk in presumed Kirundi [sic], only S5-S9 (but good modulation this week instead of little or no mod the last two weeks; BTW, my last week`s report said ``Saturday March 12`` but it was really March 11!) Via MADAGASCAR also aimed USward, again one of the best signals on 19m band. Recheck again just before closing, still talking at 1859 and again chopped off without any closing at 1859:55*. This takes the place of the defunct Radio Munansi for Uganda on 15240 via WWRB during same timespan (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Perhaps the misplacement started with this:

``BURUNDI [non]. Reception of Radio Itahuka via MBR Madagascar Feb 11, 1800-1900 15420 MDC 250 kW / 320 deg CeAf Kirundi Sat, very poor
http://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.bg/2017/02/reception-of-radio-itahuka-via-mbr_11.html
(Ivo Ivanov, B`lgariya, dxldyg via DX LISTENING DIGEST 17-07)``

And Ivo`s Clandestine schedule just updated March 19 still shows:
``Radio Itahuka 1800-1900 15420 MDC 250 kW / 320 deg SAf Kirundi Sat``

In DXLD 17-06, 17-04, 17-01 R. Itahuka was properly under RWANDA [non]
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SLOVAKIA [non]. 5850 // weaker but sufficient 11580, March 19 at 0041, R. Slovakia International via WRMI with report on veterinary care in Kosiche (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY [and non]. 15350, March 19 at 1353, TRT in Turkish, sure sounds commercial with an ad for TÃrk-Com (?) and another one, S9 with flutter, better than 12035 English at S9-S6 with splatter from WEWN, grrr. Similar signal on 15380 from Saudi Arabia, but Turkey off by 1358 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1869 monitoring: confirmed Sat March 18 at 2230 on WBCQ, 9330v-CUSB, good. Also confirmed UT Sunday March 19 starting at 0323 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, S9+20, as Vern introduces me, editing out most of the theme music talkover, especially the country roster. I am quite pleased by the strength of this ham radio outlet. He also inserts IDs at least every 10 minutes. Next:
Sun 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Mon 0300v WBCQ 5130v Area 51 to WSW
Mon 0330 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Mon 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Tue 0030 WRMI 7730 to WNW
Tue 1100 WRMI 9955 to SSE, 6855 to WNW
Tue 2130 WRMI 15770 to NE, 6855 to WNW
Tue 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Wed 1030 WRMI 5850 to NW, 6855 to WNW
Wed 1315.5 WRMI 9955 to SSE, 6855 to WNW
Wed 2100 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Wed 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. (7490), Sat March 18 at 2136, checking what WBCQ may have inserted into an available-for-specials hour this week, I bring up the webcast and hear hard rock music, ``Hit me with your best shot``. But at 2143 tuning real 7490 kHz, it`s NOT on air yet.

9330v-CUSB, March 18 at 2229, this WBCQ is on with some talk, presumably Overcomer, just before switching to ID, promo, and 2230 to WORLD OF RADIO as earlied by one hour from today, Saturdays only.

7490.067-AM, March 18 at 2230, WBCQ with J. P. Ferraro on `Shortwave Saturday Night` which has moved an hour earlier to 22-24 UT, i.e. afternoon-evening. By 2253 I find it drifted to 7490.018. He continues with a second hour, while following WOR, at 2300, 9330v-CUSB starts a filler playback of `Allan Weiner Worldwide`, from 23 hours earlier? So there, viva libertad de expresiÃn, we have a choice of pro-Trump AHW or anti-Trump JPF.

While on the third `BCQ, 5129.8-AM (NOT CUSB, Ivo!), which is now on after inaudible and presumably off at 2230, our other choice is off-the-wall belcher Timtron, too weak, but 2304 audibly `Radio Timtron Worldwide`. Instead of European Music Radio, which Tom Taylor had just publicized; mixup about time conversion??

``European Music Radio Transmissions via; WBCQ to Central & North America on 5130 KHz on 18th March between 23.00 to 00.00 UTC`` NO!

At 2314 on 7490, Allan is finishing a call from Ramsey, while on 9330, Ramsey is also on the phone, this time presumably live. He calls in a lot to live WBCQ programs where this is possible. (His own program `Furthermore 59-54`, filled again Thursday March 16 at 2330 on 7490 instead of `Broad Spectrum Radio`) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 6855, UT Sunday March 19 at 0021, WRMI with ``Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer``, and soon ``Xmas Radio`` jingle, then ``Winter Wonderland``. So here`s Xmas Radio at another unscheduled time on this frequency only, still listed at 00-01 UT Mondays only. We still wonder if they are ever playing anything sacred, but am not about to keep listening to find out (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5850 // 7730, UT Sunday March 19 at 0636, WRMIs are in Russian, during `Radio Panorama` DX program, playing clip of Ekho Moskviy, which is having to get rid of American investors, also talking about Radio Svoboda. I wonder just what the political stance of this program is? 6855 is not //, with music. I wonder how well the two frequencies get into Moskva, neither aimed that way (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395, Sunday March 19 at 1307, yet another time for `Wavescan`, as any schedule info for this frequency is still lacking. Ray Robinson finishing a script about YSS+S. Most of rest of show has Jeff talking with a guy from WWCR about HFCC A-17 on the Dead Sea in Jordan. Next one for B-17 will be late August hosted by SENTECH in South Africa; and A-18 late January in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Also plugged next NASB meeting, May 17-20, which is open to SWL guests, unlike HFCC, hosted by KVOH Simi Valley, first one on the west coast. More info at
http://www.shortwave.org
which opens with a KNLS/MWV slideshow but linx to
http://www.shortwave.org/index.php/annual-meeting-info/
1329 back to Oldies music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGSET)

** U S A. 11520, March 19 at 0038, WEWN English is unusually strong, S9+25, audiblizing the hash which also surrounds day frequency 15610 when it inbooms: spur peaks are about 11511, 11502, at -9 kHz intervals, but not so much on the hi side.

12020-12100, March 19 at 1402, range of WEWN 12050 Spanish splatter, including QRMing Turkey, q.v. on 12035 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 3215, March 19 at 0046, S9+25 WWRB with suptorted talk, presumably politico-religious huxters. Shift to 3195 should now occur at 0100 when WWCR overtakes 3215, but not checked yet. ``African`` service on 15240 remains unheard (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4070.43, March 19 at 0047, CW beacon GT, very poor. I have been checking for this almost every night during bandscans, and first time heard since Feb 24, the date for which was omitted, so here is that report again:

4070.3, Feb 24 at 0228, CW beacon GT is JBA, and I do mean JBA! Had to listen over a minute to be sure I was copying GT rather than the other one recently heard, ZN. Still no idea whence, so time to guess: how about Grand Teton? Or could refer to golfing while tangoing, or vice versa (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5010, March 19 at 0055, very poor carrier here as I am tuning up the band, so the Cuban leapfrog? NO, since 5025 Rebelde is off, just the JBAC from presumed PerÃ. Therefore 5010 is most likely India along the grayline; a few other 60m signal traces from Asian frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5100, March 19 at 0057, the S9+35 open carrier is here again, except it is cutting off and on: 3 seconds on, 1 second off. What behavior is this? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6105.39, March 19 at 1337, big het from some carrier here against one on 6105.0, the lower sounding like serious music hour on Sundays from CNR1; still late in the hour altho weakening, both gone by 1403 recheck. At this hour certainly not Radio Panamericana, Bolivia, which is sometimes active and last measured on 6105.34, nor Brasil; nor Mexico, which Aoki also insists on preserving 24h as if XEQM still exists.

Rather, per Aoki, very likely is R. Taiwan International shifted off-frequency as they are capable of doing, scheduled 10-14 UT, 100 kW at 267 degrees from Kouhu site, in Mandarin Chinese during this hour, and of course *jammed, which is the real reason CNR1 is on 6105.0 while RTI is too, almost (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGESST)

Logs
** BRAZIL. 6162, March 18 at 0621, a spur blob around here is showing up again, presumably from 6180 RNA/RNB which on fundamental is getting more distorted (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BURUNDI [non]. 15420, Saturday March 18 at 1800 tune-in, Radio Itahuka ID right away and talk in presumed Kirundi, only S5-S9 (but good modulation this week instead of little or no mod the last two weeks; BTW, my last week`s report said ``Saturday March 12`` but it was really March 11!) Via MADAGASCAR also aimed USward, again one of the best signals on 19m band. Recheck again just before closing, still talking at 1859 and again chopped off without any closing at 1859:55*. This takes the place of the defunct Radio Munansi for Uganda on 15240 via WWRB during same timespan (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, March 18 at 0623 check of RHC English frequencies: this one is suptorted; 6060 is better; 6100 is very good modulation and strength; 6165 is undermodulated but not distorted; 5040 is off (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDIA. 15140, March 18 at 1648, my BST-1 caradio memory scan stops here for something in Russian, good signal but deep fades. 15140 is in the bank for RHC later in the day, but now it`s got to be All India Radio, Delhi-Khampur site as scheduled in Russian at 1600-1715, 250 kW, 312 degrees per HFCC, but not really starting until 1615 per Aoki (and totally missing from EiBi!). 1701 into news mentioning Bangladesh, but exotic S Asian song already at 1703. No jamming or DRM. And NO sign of Oman which is supposedly on 15140 all day in Arabic, (after 14-15 English) but has been quite sporadic lately (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN. 13720, March 18 at 1810, Chinese singing at S6; the SSOBOONA (strongest signal on band outside of North America = 13820 & 13845). Figure it will look up to CNR1 and/or RFA to be jammed, but not so in HFCC, Eibi, Aoki. Only listee is NHK in Japanese to South America, 85 degrees, 300 kW direct at 1655-1900 (Saudi is also supposed to be on here after 1800).

This reminds me of an unID by Mark Taylor, WI in the NASWA Flashsheet at a much earlier hour on 13720, March 12 at 1325, ``traditional Chinese vocal song``, which didn`t match listings either. Maybe there really is something new and Chinese here (Glenn hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 5995, Saturday March 18 at *1259, RNZI sign on with Bell Bird, good signal at first; having just announced on poor 9700 that we should retune to 5995. So contrary to their own website schedule I quoted earlier and on WORLD OF RADIO 1869, they are NOT using 7355 still after 1300 on Saturdays only. So now I have another look at
http://www.radionz.co.nz/international/listen
UT Sat March 18 at 1938 and it now has been corrected/changed to show:
12:59 - 17:58 5995 AM Pacific Sat
12:59 - 16:50 5995 AM Pacific Sun-Fri

RNZ news item at 1306 is another story about threats to the Tonga Broadcasting Commission (A3Z 1017 kHz + and FM network, including RNZI relays). Here are two more on the website since the last one I linked:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15770, March 18 at 1834, WRMIBS is back on the air after absence yesterday, usual poor signal off the side here; oops! dumps off the air at 1837*, so still having problems.

Before then I noticed that there was some crackling as heard on AM, and quick carrier cuts or shifts as I listened with BFO, comparing it to much stronger 15710 WHRIBS, where the same thing was happening but much more severely. You risk ruining your transmitters by plugging in that horrible quality feed from Walterboro, and here I am just speaking technically. My receiver? Not happening on other nearby signals like 15500 & 15390 Spain (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395, March 18 at 1847, Oldies on WRMI is just too weak at S3 to enjoy the music, Blue Velvet at the moment, interspersed with Bob Biermann announcements. Should put this on 13 MHz daytime for better coverage further if not closer. Maybe 9395 is stronger at prime single hop skip distance from Okee halfway to here, like the Tennesseeans on 9 MHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9930, Saturday March 18 at 1801, no signal from WTWW-2 for `Theater Organ/Ozarx`, and still none at 1820, but 9475 WTWW-1 is on with a ham show; nor on was WTWW-3, 12105. Staying on local time, all programs should have shifted an hour earlier, TOO to 1800 instead of 1900, but not rechecked then.

12160, Sat March 18 until 1730, WWCR`s `Talking Machine Show` which ought to be called `Singing Machine Show` has indeed shifted one real UT hour earlier not to 1700, and manages to penetrate into a restaurant on the G8 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15555-USB, March 18 at 1805, WJHR gospel huxter barely audible at S3 vs noise level of S2, just to confirm it still exists and is active today (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 12040-12075, March 18 at 1812, 12050 WEWN is splattering across this range, while fundamental is distorted during Spanish translation of prayer in English. Mother doesn`t care. Little comfort that this dirty transmitter impacts the upper side more than the lower (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
