** CUBA. 13740, April 29 at 1334, RHC back on here instead of 13780: they can`t decide which one to keep. // 13700 as usual, and it`s the one also producing extremely distorted spurblobs circa 13637 and 13763. This time no readable program audio on them in SSB, AM or FM reception modes. 1424 check, 13700 still on, spurs off and 13740 off. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CUBA. 15730, April 30 at 0013, RHC on and propagating, but suptorted with cutouts, French not // 5040 Kriyol. Something`s always wrong at RHC.
15230, April 30 at 0013, RHC in Spanish! This frequency has been running only in the mornings, 13-15 per Eibi, 11-15 per Aoki/NDXC. This is only the start of various new frequencies/times now heard:
11800, April 30 at 0016, new RHC in Spanish // 11760, and // ripple/distorted 11670 as if two carriers? but 11700 and 11850 are both OFF. So the 11850 parasites on 11840 & 11860 also off. Which one does 11800 replace, or both? 11800 better not be on before 0000 as the others were, due to Romania in Spanish! Something`s always wrong at RHC. The 11980 harmonic of 5990 CRI in Spanish also audible now.
9340, April 30 at 0021, RHC on brand new frequency in Spanish, but missing from 9535 & 9640 the normal 31mb tarde channels; replaces both, or error, or?
Another change reported by wolfie the morning of April 29 was 7350 instead of 7340. Remains to be heard if all these changes stick, and what more there may be; Arnie just getting around to post-seasonal juggling? Or maybe to celebrate May 1: ``patria o suerte, ¡pensaremos!`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CUBA. 4765, April 30 at 0037, Radio Progreso is S9+10/20 of dead air until cut off at 0043.5*, back on *0051.8-0052.3* still with no modulation. Lite CODAR swishing QRM only on the LSB side. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** TURKEY. 9830, April 29 at 2242, VOT makes it on air today, S9+5 during Turkish music fill. Seems their success rate on this transmission is less than 50%; and when it is on they claim it`s the 1230 on 15450. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler and/or awry at Ankara (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2031 monitoring: confirmed after 2100 Wed April 29 on WBCQ 7490.1v, JBA here and UTwente; VP at Chicagoland KiwiSDR, sufficient at one of the numerous Rochesters.
Also confirmed UT Thu April 30 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, S9 on generous meter but rates only poor vs noise level. Presumably much better to the NE of FL.
WOR 2032 should be ready by early UT Fri May 1, for first WRMI broadcast at 2200 on 9955. BTW, I`ve been feeling OK since 2031.
