Join us from Friday 10th April at 9am right the way through to 2pm on Monday 13th April on 648 AM in the South and South-East, on 1368 AM in the North and North-West courtesy of our friends at Manx Radio, around the world online via the Radio Caroline app and Radio Player, and on smart speakers.

We'd love to hear from you – email us during the broadcast at memories@radiocaroline.co.uk and remember, it's the only address that gets you straight through to the Easter broadcast.

Glenn Hauser logs April 5-6, 2020

** ANGUILLA. 11775 nor 6090, April 5, it`s dawning on me that the so-called Caribbean Beacon has not been heard for a while, a week or more. Easy to miss due to convoluted ``schedule``. Mark Coady on the ODXA iog April 5:

``A fellow ham radio operator from Peterborough, Ontario, winters for over a month or two with his wife on the island of Anguilla. They recently had their first cases of the COVID-19 virus on the island, apparently brought in by recent tourists from the US and his return flight has been cancelled.

On top of not knowing when he can come home, he noted that he hasn't heard the Caribbean Beacon on 1610 lately and I haven't heard them on shortwave either. Pastor Melissa Scott is still on WWCR but I wonder if the Caribbean Beacon is another COVID-19 casualty for now. Has anyone been hearing them on 6090 or 11775 lately?`` 1610 has been off for a long time (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15370, April 5 at 2152, RHC is S9 of dead air; also 13740 S9+20 but cut off at 2153*. 11850 DA. 11880 DA at S8, this one warming up prior to nominal 2200 start, but what about the others? Spanish tarde supposedly starts at 2100, already modulating `Formalmente Informal` show on 11760 and much weaker 11670; at 2158, 9640 is too but suptorted. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11760, Sunday April 5 at 2254, second play of `En Contacto` I make a point of hearing, trying to copy details missed earlier tnx to Arnie`s hard-to-understand speech. The azimuth for 6145 he might have said 335 instead of 325 degrees (treinta sounds a lot like veinte), and still unreadable that for 6000. Closing credits uttered by the one who speaks, sounds like Yalina Cascaret, but no certainty about either spelling, instead of Marta Rios. This via Alexandria SDR, arriving somewhat distorted. Something`s always wrong at RHC. Searching for name on website goes nowhere.

As for the azimuths, no RHC at all in boycotted HFCC; EiBi doesn`t deal with them at all; so that leaves Aoki/NDXC, FWIW. A-20 admits RHC info is still from B-19: 6000, 10 degrees from Quivicán; 6165, 340 degrees from Bauta. Yes, ``6165`` as NDXC never caught up with that change to 6145 months ago (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6200, April 6 at 0551, JBA carrier, possibly leapfrog mixing product of RHC 6000 over 6100 another 100 kHz higher; but only if both now be really from same site rather than Titán and Bauta. Only thing listed is Lhasa, but midday there. 6000 is S9+20/30 not undermodulated for a change yet somewhat distorted; 6100 is S9+10/20 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. Updating WORLD OF RADIO times on World FM, and webcasts, with DST off in NZ as of April 5: all shifted one real UT hour later to: Thursday 0930 and 2300 UT; UT Friday 2300. Unfortunately due to my current produxion schedule on Thursdays, the first two airings there are almost a week old (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6936-USB, April 5 at 2143, ``whether you like it or not, we`re with you again --- Col-Virus 19``, song, 2156 still on with music; S6. Earlier than pirates usually heard here 3+ hours before sunset. Many more logs here: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,65153.0.html (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 4955-USB, April 6 at 0327, tnx to tip on the WOR iog from Mick Delmage who was getting a good signal in Alberta: good also to Ohio SDR I bring up quickly, hard rock, then jazz; 0335 Mix ID, 0346 ``Mix Radio International Worldwide``, quick YL IDs every few minutes as music runs on; 0350 heavy echoes on ID; 0355 another, but cut off at 0359*. So much for Amauta (the legal Peruvian sporadically? active on 4955). Mix first reported here at 2345 but none as late as we heard it: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,65158.0.html (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ROMANIA. 6100, April 6 at 0059, RRI is S9+20 on NF in Romanian to North America at 00-02; 0100 a bit of classical music but into discussion of Estonian-Romanian relations; found // 7420 at 0112. This bihour should also include a good variety of music from domestic service (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 17615.064, April 6 at 1447, S5-S6 with music probably Qur`an, as this always-offfrequency makes a showing despite no registrations and nothing audible on 17660, 17705 or 17895; would be the OSOB except for JBA 17630 CRI Mali.

Others have monitored extensively to confirm most but not all previously scheduled KSA broadcasts are still running, notably WOR iog members Dr Hansjoerg Biener and Wolfgang Bueschel; not including French, per Antoello Napolitano:

``Any idea for the French broadcast scheduled at 1355-1600 on 17660 kHz? I tried a number of times in the last days but nothing was detected. This has been quite regular for years so I am wondering if they stopped broadcasting in French (the only European language still used by Saudi Radio on shortwaves) or simply moved to a new frequency. I confirm, instead, the broadcast in Indonesian on 21670 kHz heard here in the South Italy on 4th April at 1017`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SCOTLAND [non]. 5850 // 5010, UT Sun April 6 at 0100-0200, `Encore` classical music reconfirmed on both WRMI frequencies.

(7490v) WBCQ webcast, UT Monday April 6 at 0000, after `Le Show` and a minute of dead air, ``William Tell Overture`` starts, so after a couple bonus weeks, Encore has been replaced by an Available Time Slot, primarily filled by AAAWWW; however at 0050 recheck there is music so must not have been an AW hosted show.

9455, UT Mon April 6 at 0200-0259, `Encore` via WRMI, good signal into remotes in NY state; website playlist still for last week (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 5900, April 6 at 0103, Brother Scare on VP signal. Who needs it, with multiple WRMI, WBCQ, WWCR frequencies? HFCC shows BULGARIA available 24 hours with 250 kW on 306 beam toward WEu/NWAf, not NAm in same azimuth; but Aoki/NDXC shows TOM at 23-02, 50 kW at 126 degrees (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TAIWAN [non]. 5800, April 6 at 0101, RTI Spanish via WRMI on this frequency only, no //s heard. Supposed to be inauguration of new relay after test phase, but unknown whether it`s really a new show yet.

Repeat of 0200 checked at 0218 via various E USA remotes, to find RTI on *four* frequencies: 5010, 5800, 7780, 9395! 5010 goes off at 0230* (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) See also: USA WRMI

** U K [non]. 9615, April 6 at 1529, 1 kHz tone, then 1530 Korean at S5-S7. That`s the start time for BBC`s recently inaugurated tri-hour for North Korea, and indeed that`s it, on the ubiquitous 21-degree antenna from USAGM Tinang, PHILIPPINES and onward USward (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7340-7345-7350, April 5 at 2141, DRM noise already from Radio Martí, before any AM frequencies come up on this band. In fact, per HFCC this starts at *1700, until 0200* --- but labeled as D for analog rather than N for digital! Nominal 50 kW from GB site = Grimesland NC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2028 monitoring: confirmed UT Monday April 6 at 0130 on WRMI 7780 only, no longer one or two additionals altho some seem available;

Also confirmed UT Mon April 6 on WRMI 7780 again, only.

Also confirmed UT Mon April 6 at 0300 on Area 51 5130 WBCQ.

Also confirmed UT Mon April 6 at 0330 on WRMI 9955, good at Bogotá SDR.

Also confirmed Monday April 6 at 1800.6 on IRRS 7290, VG via UTwente SDR following: 1758 jazz fill, 1759 switch to bit of rock song; 1759.6 canned ID claiming incorrectly that this is compatible USB rather than full AM DSB; 1800 three headlines from Feature Story News, before WOR start. Noticed at 1811 interruption in modulation if not transmission; maybe others. 1829 cut off closing before I could finish with ``standard disclaimer`` (let me assure you it still applies!). Next:

0100 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. What`s really on WRMI at 0130 UT Monday April 6?
5800 // 9395, Prague in English
5010 // 5850, fill music starting with ``Cayman Holiday``
7780, WORLD OF RADIO here only, poor; how about 5010 & 5850??
5950, SMTV?
7570 // 7730, TOMBS
9455, Oldies
9955, `Wavescan` about Greenland

At 0230:
5800, Wavescan
5850 // 9395, rock music, oldies?
5950 & 9955 unknown
7780, WORLD OF RADIO 2028, VG via NY remote on this frequency only
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) See also SCOTLAND [non], TAIWAN [non]

** U S A. 9330, April 6 at 0101, WLCR via WBCQ is still on here rather than A-20 registered 6195 for this hour; and still no sign of the other non-9330 frequencies unattainable (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15745-15750-15755, April 6 at 1532, poor DRM noise from WINB; was not audible at all at 1440 tho supposedly runs 11-17 UT M-F (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15545.445-USB approx, April 6 at 1442, JBA 2-way seems Spanish but not certain; INTRUDERS may have a thing for ``cute`` frequency choices (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 18155.9-USB, April 5 at 2145, ham reminiscing about equipment of yesteryear.

18137-USB, April 5 at 2146, ham in Italian but probably not Italy; pileup replies, one in Spanish; handles are Giovanni and Nando. Soon they finish with 73s and NO IDs.

I am logging these merely to note that the 18 MHz band is open at least NorthAmerically, by HF sporadic E; but not the 21 MHz band.

Lower band nearby broadcasters are however also getting Es boosts far beyond their normal JBA levels: 15610 WEWN S9+25; 15555-U WJHR even S9+10; 15825 WWCR squealing S9+25; 15770 WRMI S9+25; 13845 WWCR S9+35 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Highlights of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity
30 March - 05 April 2020

Solar activity was very low throughout the period. Region 2759 (N28,
L=263, class/area Hrx/030 on 02 Apr) formed on the disk on 31 Mar
and produced a few B-class events early on 04 Apr. The region
decayed to plage on 05 Apr. No Earth-directed CMEs were detected.

No proton events were observed at geosynchronous orbit.

The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit reached
high levels on 01-04 Apr and moderate levels on 30-31 Mar and 04-05
Apr. A maximum flux of 1,690 pfu was observed on 02 Apr at 1750 UTC.

** CUBA [and non]. Further discussion on the IRCA iog about the 711 kHz carriers I have been reporting:

``What is being heard on 711 by east coast folks? Steve Ratzlaff Apr 2 #7576 --- Lately 711 and 891 are often equal strength hets. I only get occasional traces of 711 audio, and lately not much more on 891. What do you east coast folks normally hear on 711? Tnx. Steve in AZ``

``And, in Steve's case, as he was hearing Algeria on 891, maybe both Cuba and Morocco? (though then there might be a subaudible heterodyne as well. A late fade out time would eliminate Morocco, and MWoffsets says that Morocco is a few Hertz low as well. The 711 that I see here seems to be spot on channel. best wishes, Nick Hall-Patch, BC``

``Mauno_Ritola Apr 3 #7584 --- At 1525 Florida Perseus shows a carrier on 711.001 kHz. Best regards, Mauno Ritola, Finland``

``Mark WA1ION Apr 3 #7587  --- Morocco (W. Sahara) in early (2300 UTC) on east antenna with little on south antenna.

Cuban on both antennas later into the evening but better on south beam not surprisingly. Cuba the only 711 post 0600 UT.

What anyone gets on 711 is a factor of time, location, propagation, and antenna. I have not done precision frequency measurement on either of the 711 signals recently though I suspect that Mauno will have all the info here soon. Morocco (W. Sahara) used to be about 100 Hz high but this is no longer the case. Mark Connelly, WA1ION | South Yarmouth, MA | FN41vq`` (via Glenn Hauser, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, April 4 at 1917, RHC English is not distorted for a change; a Jamaican loves Fidel. Distorted again next morning in Spanish. Something`s usually wrong at RHC.

15140, April 5 at 1934, is OFF, only frequency scheduled during first English hour of the day; 15370 is on, VG in French (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13780 // 13700, the former with some hum, but no spurs anywhere, Sunday April 5 at 1336, RHC `En Contacto` has just started. This week it`s almost all Arnie talking about several subjects, lickety-split pace tripping over his tongue and hard for me to follow, while I can normally comprehend proper ``broadcast Spanish``.

Well-worn subject of his fascination with TTFD antennas resurges: they are low-noise and good for T-E DX. Gives azimuths for English to N America frequencies, 325 degrees on 6145, and couldn`t catch that for 6000. If so, 6145 should be heard a lot better here in the boresight. Thought the YL announcer closing sounded like Marta Rios, but she gives totally different strange name. 1348 finishes already, on to `En Compañía del Doctor`, not topic-V but heart disease.

BTW, on the positive side, the current `Nova` on PBS is about a possible immunotherapy cancer cure developed by Cuba; Americans illegally go there for treatment (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11880, April 5 at 1358, S9+20 open carrier prior to CRI relay, 1400 modulation comes up right on cue! CRI Plus opening with news of China sending medical experts to help Philippines; somewhat undermodulated but sufficient (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 11790.02 approx., April 5 at 1936, JBA talk. Only scheduled is AWR in Fulfulde via ISS; not often so off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-USB, April 5 at 0001, rock and at 0010 ``You are listening to the Wireless --- [something]``. 0015, ``W-T-F Radio Worldwide`` [just the abbr.; meaning We`re The Finest?]. 0024, ``our regularly scheduled program to be repeated for the west coast``, more dense music until off at 0031*. More: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,65088.0.html (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 5165-AM, April 5 at 0003, S7-S9 undermodulated talk. These say it`s X-FM relay also on two other frequencies: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,65084.15.html (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. Doug Smith of W9WI.com replied March 30 on the WTFDA Forum to my recent TVDX logs: 03-30-2020, 07:11 AM

``KSBI’s permanent antenna is at the same height as KWTV’s auxiliary antenna. (I suspect it’s the same antenna) Because of their repack to a significantly lower channel – 23 vs. 51 – they would have faced a substantial power reduction. The FCC regards less power necessary to achieve the same coverage on a lower channel. It appears KSBI chose to take a height reduction instead. The channel 23 antenna is 331m above average terrain; the channel 51 unit was 458m. Best I can tell this change is permanent.

I would imagine the higher power yields a more interference-immune signal for viewers in the immediate metropolitan OKC area, at the expense of those of you a bit further away.

KOTV repacks in Phase 10. This begins May 2nd and runs through July 3rd. The coronavirus emergency has delayed some Phase 8 and 9 moves. That’s likely to push back Phase 10, even if the virus is gone by May.

KPXJ is on the KTBS tower (on “KTBS Road”…) just east of Mooringsport, LA. {Mooringsport is NW of Shreveport near the TX border, about halfway to Vivian - Enid distance 340 miles = 547 km}

Regarding Escape on KDCU 31.3, this network somewhat unexpectedly changed its name to Court TV Mystery early this year. Both this channel and “regular” Court TV originate from the same firm.

KQCW is moving to a shared tower east of Tulsa. It’s currently home to KJRH-2, KOTV-6, KOED-11, and co-owned FM stations KWTU-88.7 & KWGS-89.5.

The “Enid” RF 9 permit has been superseded by channel 20. Doug Smith``
Many tnx, Doug! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, April 4 not checked until 2247 to find zero VOT signal, so probably another day off for English at 2200. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler.

[non]. As for the RTTY on 9830 which often runs past 2200, Zacharias Liangas replies April 4: ``Hello, just to inform you that in this frequency there is a FSK system called NAU from Isabela Puerto Rico using standard baudot with 50 bd with FSK mode. I know that around 5 years ago the time I was listening to RTM on 9835, audible on local nights here in Greece. Unfortunately there is no info on what is used for`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5800, April 5 at 0550, S9+10 open carrier, surely WRMI-10, which nominally closes at 0200; why now? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330, April 5 at 1445, WLCR via WBCQ-6 is off! Right at Sunday-morning church-going time. What`s wrong?

9330, April 5 at 1930, WLCR is back on, poor, in Arabic?

That reminds me, HFCC A-20 registrations so some different frequencies at certain hours, but has anyone axually heard them. I haven`t been seeking directly, but no run-acrosses:

14-15 13590 English 300 degrees, only 250 kW;
15-19 15105 English 300 degrees, 250 kW;
19-20 12080 Spanish 76 degrees, 500 kW;
23-24  6195 Arabic, 81 degrees, 500 kW;
01-03  6195 Portuguese, 175 degrees, 500 kW;
Otherwise, 9330 at various angles. If not, we shall have to suspect WBCQ be still unable to change away from 9330 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sun Apr 5 at 0030 check, WTWW-2 with `TONITO` in progress (Theatre Organ not in the Ozarx), so I switch to $tereo webcast. 0052 mixed with music are growls, from a cat?! 0055 Bob Heil wraps up saying it was guest organist Len playing, 0056 back to rock (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Re my remark about getting TA carrier on 657 instead of IBOC noise from WSCR Chicago, Tom Jasinski, Joliet replies April 4: ``Glenn: The IBOC for WSCR 670 and WBBM 780 has been off for over a month now. Both stations now share the same tower. Tom Jasinski`` --- that`s also good for TA on 684 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5000+, by April 3, the FSK/RTTY QRM on the high side of WWV, has gone away. Meanwhile, further discussion of it, first from the MARE Tipsheet:

``Jamie Tolbert: I wonder if that’s the new stock exchange type communications system that was on the 20m ham band last year; has to do with the Chicago stock exchange. They didn’t seem to care they were on 20m last year until someone told them about it.``

``Charles Gessner: I have been hearing it most of today. I started at 1630 UT-it was strong at my home in W.Pa. I then tried again at 0030 UT. It is still very strong. As said before someone has done a TDOA direction finding study using online SDRs and determined that it was on an azimuth northwards towards Chicago from Indiana. It is continuous, that`s for sure. Oh well.``

And then on the WOR io group:
``Hmm. I just turned on my receiver here at 1425 UTC on Friday April 3rd, It appears that those FSK signals have disappeared. Strange how that happened. I will check Facebook to see if anyone on the Short Wave Listening group has any reports. I am hearing WWV on 5 MHz at a solid S5 signal, with nothing else heard. 73 de Chuck W3ON Gessner``

``Whatever it was, it appears to be gone now at 1600 UTC on 3 April. Early this morning, the signal reverted to a standard 850 Hz FSK transmission, centered about 5.002 MHz, but I don’t hear it now in upstate NY, or on any of the Kiwi network receivers that were receiving it yesterday. Jim Barrett. Elmira NY``

``Apparently now solved but here’s a theory - Some years ago when I was selling HF radios for commercial and government applications. We had a customer that programmed one of their preset channels to exactly 10 MHz for receiving WWV for frequency calibration purposes. One day there was a microprocessor glitch and the unit came up on on exactly 10 MHz and was key-down at 100W for several days. In those days the FCC was a lot more active and tracked it down to the embarrassed organization! Anyway, my theory is that something like that could have happened here, this time to WWV on 5 MHz.

Radio Free Europe rebrands in Bulgaria, Hungary and Romania

Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty will soon relaunch service in Hungary after opening offices in Romania and Bulgaria in 2019. The challenges that the US government broadcaster faces in Central and Eastern Europe are huge.

In 1993, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty shut down its service in Hungary. RFE/RL's mission had been fulfilled: The Iron Curtain had fallen, the United States had won the Cold War, and Hungary had established itself as a democracy aligned with the Washington and the EU. Twenty-seven years later, the US government's foreign broadcaster is relaunching its Hungarian service online. The US Agency for Global Media is responding to the continuous erosion of democracy and press freedom in Hungary since nationalist Prime Minister Viktor Orban and his Fidesz party came to power.

Despite the coronavirus pandemic, RFE/RL intends to resume operations in Budapest by the middle of the year, the broadcaster's president, Jamie Fly, told DW. He said about 10 journalists would be responsible for a website and content on social media platforms. "In Hungary's heavily polarized media landscape, we will try to be that neutral ground where people of all political viewpoints can find information," he said. 

There are few neutral voices left in Hungary's mainstream media. Over the past 10 years, the government has taken control of most of the country's press outlets either directly or indirectly. Public television and radio stations and the state news agency came under government control in 2011. Oligarchs and businesspeople close to Fidesz have gradually bought up other private media outlets and either closed them outright or aligned them with the government line. In 2019, about 500 private media outlets were concentrated into the Central European Press and Media Foundation (KESMA), which has close ties to the government. Since Orban took office, Hungary has slipped 64 places in Reporters without Borders' World Press Freedom Index — from No. 23 in 2010 to 87th now.

Journalists who work for the few remaining outlets that are critical of the government fear that a recent law introduced during the coronavirus outbreak to allow the prime minister to rule by decree indefinitely will put the final nail in the coffin of press freedom. The director of the think tank Political Capital, Peter Kreko fears that the return of RFE/RL to Hungary will have a limited impact. "I don't think that one more online platform can challenge the overdominance of the government media," he told DW.

'A key role'

Press freedom has also become increasingly restricted in Romania and Bulgaria. TV and radio broadcasters have been turned into mouthpieces for the state by oligarchs closely tied to authorities.

RFE/RL opened offices in Bucharest and Sophia in early 2019. "We play a key role in these countries because we tackle stories that journalists in the independent private media are not willing to go after because of threats to their safety or government pressure," Fly said.

He said RFE/RL had mixed results in its efforts to reestablish a presence in the countries. In Romania, he said, people remembered it as a radio station and were slow to switch to the website. However, he said, the small team of RFE/RL journalists in Bulgaria had met with considerable success and published investigative reports that had forced several politicians to resign.

Atanas Tchobanov, who co-founded the investigative site Bivol, told DW that he was skeptical that journalism would bring about real change in Bulgaria anytime soon. "The Bulgarian establishment is so deeply rooted in organized crime and the former Communist networks that it's very difficult to change anything with our work," he said. He added that even if high-ranking politicians were forced to resign, they would not have to worry about being prosecuted.

Bulgaria is the EU country that ranks lowest on the Press Freedom Index. Journalists regularly receive death threats; physical attacks are not infrequent. In mid-March, the investigative journalist Slavi Angelov was beaten in the middle of the capital.

Fighting fake news

Apart from its stated goal of strengthening press freedom and democracy in Central and Eastern Europe, RFE/RL will also be fighting fake news from Russia. Hungary's media outlets have been getting closer to the Kremlin over the years. "The dominant narrative in the Hungarian media is increasingly anti-Western, nationalistic, authoritarian and increasingly regards Russia as a model," said Kreko, of Political Capital.

Russia's influence in Bulgaria, which is very dependent on the Kremlin economically, is even stronger. Since Russia's powerful oligarchs are "kingmakers," Tchobanov said, Bulgaria's politicians and media outlets are predominantly pro-Kremlin.

China has also been trying to gain influence in Central and Eastern Europe. "We are seeing a renewed push by Chinese propaganda outlets and trolls on social media trying to seize the narrative," Fly said, adding that one of the RFE/RL's main tasks is to fight fake news. He knows that this will not be easy.

"We are nowhere near to that point where we can declare victory and go home," Fly said. "This will be a long process."

http://www.hfcc.org/data/a20/

** CUBA. 5025, April 4 at 0536, Radio Rebelde music is suptorted, as it has been all evening, as often the case. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6145 & 6000, April 4 at 0534, RHC English equally weak and just barely modulated, while // 6060 & 6100 are both much stronger and well-modulated. 5040, last of The Cuban Five, is strong & loud enough, but with constant squeal and mush.

Also, a JBA carrier on 6230, probably leapfrog mixing product of 6060 over 6145 another 85 kHz beyond. Something`s always wrong at RHC. BTW, I am assuming that there is no longer an English hour at 07-08, tho not awake that late to check; with only a fraxion of the Five remaining on at 06-07 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, April 4 at 1526, RHC S9+10 but horribly distorted, as this transmitter has been for many weeks now; have they no shame; or no way to fix it? Or substitute another unit? Plenty are available mid-day. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 255-MCW kHz, April 4 at 0549 UT, no signal from SW, the 25-watt NDB at nearby Stillwater, which had been one of our most constantly reliable, day and night by groundwave. 341 kHz, EI, Enid also remains gone. Ditto at midday 1800 UT; only ones audible are 350 RG OKC, which is sometimes missing; and much stronger 515 PN Ponca City which is never missing but sometimes chripy (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAIPAN [and non]. 11985.037, April 4 at 1531, JBA talk in Korean, off frequency, immediately suggesting it`s USAGM Saipan, one of its most off-capable sites, along with São Tomé. HFCC confirms Saipan, A-20 now running 1500-1900.

9910.036, April 4 at 1537, another off-frequency Korean, bet it`s the same. Not in HFCC of March 30 but yes in Aoki/NDXC April 4 as another RFA Korean from Agignan Point MRA = SAIPAN at 1500-1700.

Altho transmitters might drift, you`d think there would be a simple vernier ``fine tuning`` to adjust frequencies, if anyone cared. Something`s always shifty at Saipan. One more:

11675, April 4 at 1534, Chinese with fast SAH from second transmitter. Yep, Aoki has this as RFA SAIPAN, this hour only, *jammed by CNR1; and we certainly know which one is askew without trying to separate them. Next hour 16-17 in Uyghur for the brainwashed switches to Tinian, probably not so off, or at least differing (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 9955, April 4 at 1536, WRMI dead air but it`s just a pause in TOMBS, as this frequency has been extended on Saturdays only until 1600 in order to diffuse the *live* Overcomer Sabbath services, also running 1400-1600 on *nine* other WRMI transmitters! Is he still inviting girls onstage to grope them? Hard to tell on the radio, but BS may be confident he`s staying out of jail as charges against him have still not been resolved. Sabbath? as if a deity really cared which day it`s worshiped, weeks being totally artificial human constructs; just as gods are (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 8764-USB, April 4 at 1540, robot male voice with marine weather, nothing but seas in feet, winds in knots, forecasts thru next Wednesday. This is a USCG frequency shared among NMO Honolulu, NMC Point Reyes and NMN Chesapeake VA on a complex schedule, NMN starting at 1530 per EiBi. Somewhat distorted but has been worse, poor S5-S8 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2028 monitoring: unavoidably awake Saturday April 4 at 1130, confirmed on WRMI 9955, S9 with pulse jamming. Slept thru Sat 1300 on WRMI 15770; awaiting Ivo`s report.

Radio Cina Internationale in esperanto

Ho ascoltato il programma in lingua Esperanto di Radio Cina Internazionale il 2 aprile 2020 dalle 1700 alle 1800 UTC su 11650 kHz. SINPO 55444.

Condizioni di lavoro: ricevitore Yaesu FRG-7000 e antenna dipolo. QTH: Messina.

Penso che CRI sia l'unica stazione a trasmettere in questa lingua o sbaglio?
