Glenn Hauser logs November 17-18, 2021 [more]

** CUBA. 11880, Nov 17 at 2355, RHC in Brazuguese, music, S9/+10, Nov 18 at 0000 into English, // 5040 overmodulated, plugs mailbag coming up. Meant to check whether this lasted full hour on 11880, as if deliberate instead of at 2200? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6100, Nov 18 at 0715, RHC Spanish instead of English, S9+10: something`s always wrong at RHC. English remains on 6060, S9 with hum, and 6165, S9+30. 6000 & 5040 are off. The Other Side:

``The Power Vacuum in Cuba Paves the Way for the Onset of a New Revolution --- The members of Archipiélago embody a social movement born of civility, not violence. The regime's ideological and political foundation is broken. EMILIO MORALES | Miami

Map with some of the cities where there will be Cuban demonstrations for change. (Yan Estrada. Archipiélago/Facebook)

Many wonder what will happen in Cuba in the days, weeks and months that lie ahead, given the tension spawned by the systemic failure of the regime and the spread of citizen protests the likes of which had not been seen in the last 62 years. For the first time the balance seems to lean more towards the fall of the "Havana Wall" than towards the regime's perpetuation in power.

It is still difficult to know when it will happen, but in any case, no matter how the regime resists the forces of change, what represents the new will end up prevailing over all that no longer works.

The so-called "Cuban Revolution" is dead because it was tailor-made for a dictator who had no qualms about designing and implementing it at his convenience, employing sheer terror. . .`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 17800v, Nov 18 at 1518, no signal from Minitransat yacht race on AM into Maryland SDR; nor in DRM at 1725 check. So it`s finally over. I did not check for it on Nov 15-16-17. But final broadcast was probably Nov 17. Shows the last yacht, #62, arrived in Guadeloupe on Nov 17 at 1858:20 UT, taking 19 days, 4 hours, 58 minutes and 20 seconds. Three more had dropped out (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6919.95V, Nov 18 at 0708, S9/S7 undermodulated rock song. Unusual to hear any pirate this late, and no reports of it in HFU. However, Radio Pushka had been reported recently at odd hours on 6920 AM:,89178.0.html

6925 AM, Nov 18 at 0710 I also have a JBA carrier here. Coastal Rock Radio had been reported much earlier in HFU, and on 6924.9, Pandemic Radio (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 4800, Nov 18 at 0718 UT, weak mix of talk stations vs CODAR, something new and still there with preamps off, so seems external to the R75. I barely make it partially // local KGWA as 5 x 960, but whence the other audio? The once big 3 x 960 on 2880 has been gone for a long time (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** U S A. 420 MCW kHz, Nov 18 at 0729 UT, PK, 25-watt ND beacon at Olathe / Herbb, Kansas. Also logged Nov 8 with CCI from two others, and trace of one other now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2112 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday November 17 at 2200:21 on WBCQ 7490, S9+5/15 into Maryland SDR, +86 Hz offset = 7490.086v. On the plus side recently for a change.

New WOR 2113 should be ready for download early UT Fri Nov 19 and first broadcasts at 0130 on WRMIs 5850 & 7780 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 1820 UT November 18
