DX Loggings - Ralph Perry - 1 July 2011

MEXICO - 6009.95, Radio Mil back and the OA again blotting out this fqy as of 
7/1.  First noted weakly at 0940 tune-in with quick, clear ID by OM (burst out, 
simply, with "Radio Mil !"). By 1025 recheck, was totally bombing in with pops 
and t/cks, as strong as ever.  Nice listening station, actually.  The 6010.04 
unid previously hrd, weakly, not noted, nor the usual heterodyne mess.  Suspect 
that one was indeed R. Inconfidencia, uncovered by Mil's temporary absence, as 
suggested and IDed by Herk and Bob Wilkner.  Thanks for the assist, gents!  
(Perry, Illinois)

PAPUA NEW GUINEA - Very nice opening on 7/1 with host of 90 meter PNGs all 
showing up around 1000+ in Chicagoland, and fading up to full levels by 1015+.  
Bandscan showed 3385 Radio East New Britain (Rabaul) with OM nx in EE and Tok 
Pidgin at 1004; 3365 R. Milne Baya, Alotau, with YL ancr and similar 
programming; 3290 R. Central Boroko weaker than the others; 3205 R. West Sepik 
(Sandaun) with fair signal, again OM in EE and Tok Pidgin.   Also this same 
date, noted all the 60 meter Brazilians also strong by 0915 -- nice conditions, 
although usual horrendous summer static crashing, non-stop.  Andes opening never 
transpired, tho traces of 4790 Chiclayo going AN, around 0930. (Perry, Illinois)

Glenn Hauser logs June 30-July 1, 2011

** ALASKA. 11870, after good reception of KNLS June 29 and audible reception June 30 of the 1200 English
hour: July 1 at 1241 it`s nothing but a JBA carrier. Yet much further Asian signals from close to the same
azimuth as Anchor Point continue to be heard, e.g. Pet/Kam, Japan, Taiwan with YFR 11535. Something else
strange is going on at KNLS affecting wide reception variations here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. Lots of analog TVDX all evening, UT July 1:

0156 on 2, from NNW, black-ish screen with credit roll; audio modulation is quite low when
almost-fully-quieted. Maybe it`s just the program. 20 kHz CCI (many narrow bars) meaning this one is
offset plus or minus

0205 on 2, drama, Global bug LR, plus/minus offset, maybe same as above. Must be CICT Calgary AB, 2+, not CHBC
Kelowna BC, 2-zero, which is also above 1400 miles, rarely DXed from here in years past

0208 on 3, soccer. Later found CBC is the net with this. CBCP3 or CBKT7 in southern Sask. 

0257 on 4, from NW, Nissan and Walmart ads, soccer in English. Probably CBKT1, Regina.

0302 on 6, 10 kHz CCI, one with drama and CHAT-TV text bug LR, clearly readable. Medicine Hat AB, one of the
great callsigns. Took a few shots. http://www.dxinfocentre.com/TV6.pdf shows it as I, for
independent? Or City TV? Wish each page had a key to the abbrs.

0307 on 3, CITY TV promo; I thought but don`t find any listed. So easy to confuse with CTV in poor reception.

0316 on 4, still soccer in English // 3, CBCs as above

0356 on 3, soccer, FIFA Women`s World Cup, seems England and/or Canada involved, English-accented
commentary. Cannot see any network bug even when good video fades in; but at 0359 closing as CBC. Hoped for
local ID but none caught, 0400 into `The National` newscast with Peter Mansbridge, top story being Royal Visit

Question on Grundig Radio

On Father;s Day, I got myself an Eton (Grundig) Solarlink FR360. Said radio, can be operated on an AC/DC 
wall power supply. I wonder if anybody could tell me if the center pin on the connector to be used is positive
or negative. I will be using a generic Radio Shack power supply.

Best 73s to all

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15360, Saturday July 2 at 1244-1245, Arnaldo Coro with one of his drop-in commentaries for RHC
magazine shows, about Radio Reloj. Says the 4-8 am program `El Matutino` outrates the other Cuban
networks, (which would include `Haciendo Radio` on R. Rebelde, and `Despertar con Cuba` on RHC itself);
RR is a ``school for announcers`` and sets a fine example of elocution, Spanish spoken properly. Has been
on the air since 1947; maybe this is prompted by an anniversary, which Cuban stations self-promote every
year whether or not they be multiples of 5 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 11530, another check for V. of Mesopotamia, July 2 at 1341, clear frequency with
absolutely no carrier. Wolfgang Büschel confirms it`s still on the air but:

``UKRAINE {to Kurdistan} TDP brokered V. of Mesopotamia S=8 signal noted here in CeEUR at 1815 UT in like
Arabic{?} language, - though out of main lobe from Ukraine tx site -, June 30. Program to 25 million Kurds in
