Glenn Hauser logs January 29-30, 2015

** AUSTRALIA. 9580, 5995, 5940, Jan 30 at 1358, RA with jazz music, presumably fill after Fidler talk show,
1359.5 promo for `Between the Lines` on RN, Sundays at 10 am [UT Saturdays 2300], 1400 switch to Triple J. 

Less than 24 hours left for the old 6-transmitter Radio Australia; from 1300 Jan 31, cut to only 3,
fortunately retaining 9580 USward at 09-21. Broadcast Australia, Shepparton, could still rent out the
extras, but has no way of accessing live feeds other than via satellite, says Keith Perron (Glenn Hauser,

** BRAZIL. 11710, Jan 30 at 0619, second-order spur from RNA/RNB 11780.1v is audible here 70 kHz down,
crackling away, weaker than first-orders 35 kHz away around 11745 and 11815, but can`t hear a match on
11850. 11710 will of course QRM neighbor RAE Argentina earlier in evenings, but what do they care? (Glenn

** CHINA. 9200, Jan 30 at 1457, CNR1 jammer, fair, off after 1500. Per Aoki, the excuse for 9200 is the
possibility of a 100-watt Sound of Hope nuisance transmitter on Taiwan any time between 2054 and 1600,
which presumably just went off too. No search for more up to 19 MHz, but doubt the higher bands were
propagating from East Jammerstan today (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) CHINA [non]. See CUBA

** CUBA. 9570, Jan 30 at 1400, CRI English relay supposed to be over now, but still going, opening CRI News. I
quickly check the next frequency, 15700 and it is already on plus hum, so these are two separate
transmitters, confirmed with two receivers, both heard at once briefly until 15700 crashes from 1401* to
*1402 resuming. Recheck at 1532, Paul says it`s :35 minutes past the hour! amid bigger hum.

15230, Jan 30 at 1534, open carrier/dead air, usual weak but steady signal, presumably RHC supposed to be on
until 1600 like 15370 which is nominal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) 

** GREECE. 9935, Jan 30 at 0617, ERTOpen is motorboating here but clear on stronger // 9420 in Greek (Glenn

** IRAN. 13570, Jan 30 at 1529, Qur`an-like singing, fair signal vs CODAR, 1530 three chimes and news theme,
