Glenn Hauser logs September 9, 2020 [more]

** CANADA. Richard Langley reminds us that CHU has a page about its outages, showing none on Sept 8 when I was not hearing 14670-CUSB: but it was last down August 13-14 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15370, Sept 9 at 2051 in choking Arabic, RHC is back here ex-extraviation to 15340 the day before, S8-S9 with hum. Something`s not wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830.058v, Wed Sept 9 at 2200, VOT English to us is already in news so opened a bit early? Tuned-in via UTwente, S9+50! on the meter but sounds much weaker and noisy as if a thunderstorm right over Holland --- but Blitzortung shows the only storms in Europe now are in the Gulf of Bothnia, and western Mediterranean between islands of Spain and Italy. Maybe it`s a defect in VOT`s own transmission, or QRN to the Ankara-Emirler STL? No storms over Turkey either.

I hopefully keep monitoring in case `Letterbox` make a comeback. After news: 2207 very brief headlines from Foreign Press [no Turkish press today]; 2209 COVID-19 PSA; 2210 This Day in History; 2213 Did You Know That? 2216 multi-lingual ID reel which takes about 2 minutes, what a time-filler! It would be more helpful if each language were introduced by its English name, to help us learn to distinguish them, especially the similar Turkic ones. 2218 into Turkish songs, and onward, so yet again no mailbag. Something`s always awry at Ankara, erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
