BRAZIL. 6010.016, Feb 9 at 0710, JBA carrier, probably R.
InconfidÃncia, despite Aoki/NDXC listing as in a break 06-09 (and also
listing imaginary Mexico and probably same Colombia on 6010).

CUBA. Unlike English, RHC Spanish is still making SW frequency
announcements at certain hours, which don`t always mesh with reality
--- but what do those non-SWLs know back in the studio?

11760, Feb 9 at 0000 tune-in, onesuch is in progress; missed the first
part that I will try to catch again. `...13740, 11840, 9640, 5040. A
partir de las 0000: 13740, 11670, 11840, 11950, 11700, 9640, 6000`` -
-- but NOT the very frequency I am tuned to, 11760! 11670, 11700 and
11840 are all suptorted, plus weak 11830/11850 spurs, never announced.

11950 also on, but *not* // the others because it`s the separate `Mesa
Redonda` TV soundtrack hour, // 6000 only --- something the announcer
does not comprehend by mixing those two in with the others.

BTW, this is UT Saturday, altho EiBi and NDXC/Aoki claim 00-01 6000 //
11950 are on air Tue-Fri only. Maybe the UT Sat shows are irregular, or
confusion local vs UT days? Another frequency announcement is at 0400, but
just caught it ending at 0402 on 6060.

I then resolve two mysteries others have reported!

6010, Feb 9 at 0022, two carriers, so is Colombia really reactivated
along with Brasil? I barely make out some Spanish talk so the
assumption would be Colombia --- but NO, it`s // 5990 CRI relay! Now,
I get it: 6010 is a leapfrog mixing product of 5990 over 6000 (Cuba
can make broad jumps, but LFMPs are supposedly more apt between nearby
frequencies.) This is possible only between 00 and 01 when both are on
the air (unless they forget to turn at both of them off).

The other could still be Brasil, as no other broadcaster, major or
minor is known active during this hour (DON`T YOU BELIEVE Radio Mil,
Mexico, still in Aoki/NDXC, which has been gone for many YEARS). To
confuse matters further, RHC has some Brazilian trying to speak
Spanish, i.e. Portunhol, I have also heard at other times; maybe an
unusual temporary guest.

6090: so I am checking this out too: Feb 9 at 0401, no Anguilla, but
fast SAH of about 15 Hz, talk and music mixing. Now I get it! 6090 is
another leapfrog mixing product as confirmed by // audio: 5910 CRI
relay over 6000 RHC English, another 90 kHz higher. Both must be
TitÃn-QuivicÃn site here too. Leapfrogs do not make any SAH as the
result is a single ``transmission``, which however could be off-
frequency if either fundamental be; so what else is on 6090 now?
Surely R. Amhara, ETHIOPIA. The 6090 Cuban mix could be heard anytime
between 03 and 05, the 5910 CRI hours in English, Cantonese. Checked
at 0407 for reverse leap on 5820 but nothing audible there.

NIGERIA. 7255-, Feb 9 at 0718, VON S9+20 in African language about
Sierra Leone. Re my previous report of it missing, Dan Sheedy,
California replies:

"Hi Glenn, just saw your 8 Feb 0653 non-log of VoN-7255. Oddly enough,
I was checking them out at 0623 8 Feb. & they were doing OK in Hausa,
so apparently their "doing OK" didn't last too long. Have a safe
weekend, good listening, & cheers from the beach. Dan"
