Glenn Hauser logs May 13-14, 2020

** CUBA. 15370, May 13 at 2105 distorted // not distorted 13740, RHC starting afternoon news in Spanish referring to a ``terrorist attack on the Cuban embassy in Washington`` --- but scarce on details, more concerned with how it relate to Cuba getting blacklisted again by US as not cooperating in anti-terrorism, like Venezuela and other malefactors.

Normally I zone out for RHC ``news`` rife with anti-American propaganda, but curious about this, since I have heard nothing about such an attack on US news media. Is it recent, or an old grievance? Here`s a story on their current website, again without much detail, even a date, but with a surveillance shot stamped 30-4-20. Apparently blamed on some exile from Miami:
BTW, don`t forget the long-running sonic attax on the US Embassy in
Habana. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, May 13 at 2229, REE to North America is S9+10 but dead air! The other three much weaker are all modulating, 11670, 11940, 12030. Keep checking 9690: still dead air at 2236, 2249, 2302; May 14 at 0030 by when only 11940 remains on with mod; 0054, 0100, 0140 by when silent 9690 has grown to S9+20/30 of DA; still past 0200 but off in a minute or two as scheduled. So nobody at Noblejas pays attention whether a 300-kW transmitter has modulation applied, for at least 3.5 hours. Something`s notorious at Noblejas (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, May 13 at 2227, VOT is absent, after a record? 5-day run of successes I checked daily May 8-9-10-11-12! I knew that wouldn`t last. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
