Glenn Hauser logs February 2, 2020

** CUBA. 6145, Feb 2 at 0714, only RHC frequency still on air --- and it`s S9+20 but suptorted, no good. So what will become of the nominal 0800 Sunday Esperanto broadcast on one 6 MHz channel or another? wb:

``RHC Bauta Sunday only Esperanto special 0800-0830 UT not on air in 49 mb, no trace at all. [selected SDR options, span 12.5 kHz RBW 15.3 Hertz] (wb  df5sx, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews Febr 2)``. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13963, 13900, 13833, 13767, 13632, 13566, 13505 approx., Feb 2 at 1507, FM/AM spurblobs out of RHC 13700-AM, weaker toward the outskirts but plenty strong closer in. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, Feb 2 at 1854, RHC S9+10 but severely suptorted, as has been for several days at least; wiggle that patchcord! Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 1319.96, Feb 2 at 1910 UT, KCLI Clinton is *still* dead air, about 24 hours after last notice, but I have not monitored it much in between. Anyhow it adheres to its signature off-frequency. Can it be that the people at 10040 St. Hwy 54 in Weatherford don`t notice, or don`t care? NRC AM Log shows current format is only Fox Sports Radio as easily available elsewhere, so no great loss, not to mention its FM translator on 97.3, which what do you bet is funxional normally?

** U S A. 4980, Jeff White now replies about WRMI as heard here: ``Glenn: Briefly: 4980 is using only the exciter of transmitter 4 for testing, approximately 2100-0900. It's an existing antenna 160 degrees. Of course Okeechobee site. Programming varies, but a lot of Supreme Master (System J). Ultimate plans will depend on results of testing. We're watching the adjacent teletype QRM as well [4985].

I've been very busy with a conference crisis this week. The HFCC A20 Conference in China was cancelled. I was supposed to leave today. We are working on finding another location and hotel. It has not been confirmed yet. Jeff White, General Manager, WRMI Radio Miami International, 10400 NW 240th Street, Okeechobee, Florida 34972 USA`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
