Glenn Hauser logs September 3, 2019

** CUBA. After many months, I`m again hearing multiple FM spurs from RHC; on almost daily morning bandscans, no sign of them until now, Sept 3 at 1337 as I am tuning downward, first encountered circa 13830 but covering 10-11 kHz, 13825-13836. Also 13758-13772, 13626-13637, 13562-13572 weaker; trace circa 13500. 

Very strong AM signals on both 13740 and 13700 before 1400, but these FM spurs are obviously out of 13700 at approx. 65 kHz intervals; and they are still there after 13740 is off at 1400 check. 

Then I search further: FM on 13894-13903; trace circa 13963: these two higher blobs I had not noticed initially. The closer ones are very strong too. Come to think of it, I did not notice any F# tone along with them which used to accompany, but rechecking at 1520 they are all off as is 13700. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INTERNATIONAL WATERS [and non]. Hurricane Watch Net is posting daily(?) updates about what`s been happening on the HWN; keep checking:

** ROMANIA. We may relax? Christian Mocanu, Romania, reports Sept 2 via yg: ``My friends at RRI answered my email and I was pleased to read the following:

"The Board of the Romanian Radio Society rejected the proposal of closing down any shortwave or mediumwave broadcasts as well as to disrupt in any way the production of radio programming, instructed the Management Council and the President-General Manager to reduce costs in other areas and the President-General Manager to take all the required measures in order to ensure funding for the Society"`` (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1997 monitoring: I missed checking UT Tuesday
Sept 3 at 0100 on WRMI 7780; did anyone hear it? Next:
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955 to SSE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday  WRMI 7780 to NE

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

** U S A. 9330.034V, Sept 3 at 1412, WBCQ relaying NOAA Weather Radio: typical robotic cadence and intonation, hurricane info; S6-S8 and difficult to copy from old wavering transmitter, not 500 kW Super! I do hear a mention of ``eastern Okeechobee county``. Harold Frodge first reported this:

``9330, WBCQ, Monticello ME; 2047-2203+, 9/2; Relaying NOAA 162.4 MHz, KIH26, Daytona Beach FL, with Florida Atlantic coast wx & Dorian update; long loop repeated, but apparently being updated each round; 5:34 PM EDT TC. No relayer ID break, but e-mail response from Allan Weiner in just a couple of minutes confirmed it’s WBCQ. S9 peaks; very fady after 2100. (Frodge-MI)``

WRMI is still on nominally at 1415 Sept 3 check: 9395 good with BS, 15770 JBA with SMTV; 21525 JBA carrier Radio Africa. WRMI will have to close down if the winds get too high.

At 1505 UT Sept 3 on MSNBC, Al Roker had a map showing ``scattered power outages`` inland including Okeechobee county (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
