** CHINA [non]. 6020, Feb 10 at 0103, CRI English, 300 kW, 305 degrees
via ALBANIA has a LAH, and CCI from some other talk. Hard to make out
sounding similar but not synchronized, so wonder if CRI from another
site in English? It is prime-time for such self-QRM, as per HFCC, at
01-02 CRI is also via Kashgar, East Turkistan, 100 kW, 209 degrees but
supposed to be in Urdu, not English. There is such a double-English
CRI broadcast at this hour on 6180, via Habana and Kashgar. 6020 does
not work out as a possible leapfrog from Cuba at this hour (Glenn

** CUBA. 6010, Feb 10 at 0058, weak music // 5990 CRI relay not quite
off yet, i.e. the leapfrog again over 6000 which this time is an open
carrier prior to 0100 English. By 0102 5990 is off, 6000 in suptorted
RHC English, 6010 also off. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba

** CUBA. 6100, Feb 10 at 0655, RHC still AWOL from this frequency as
has been for several nights now, so what will happen with the
scheduled weekly Sunday Esperanto at 0700 on 6100? Still nothing: all
RHC 49m frequencies off. If Esp`o weren`t RHC`s least important,
lowest priority language, they could have put it on some other
transmitter and/or frequency, as has happened before contrary to
schedule. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

15140, Sun Feb 10 at 1601, RHC Esperanto starting here on
unacknowledged frequency, as well as publicized 11760. Schedule
announcement at 1603 still claims first broadcast is at 0800 on 6100!
I seriously doubt they got 6100 back on the air just for that, but
zzzz unchecked. Previous weeks it has been at 0700 on 6100, contrary
to initial B-18 schedule, i.e. tacked on to end of English rotations.
During announcement of frequencies, deep fade at 1600 part, but I
think there was only one, i.e. not including 15140, which was added
months ago, other days only Spanish // 11760. Third broadcast to be
Sun 2330 on 15730, not confirmed lately (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** CUBA. 15700, Feb 10 at 1514, CRI Plus relay in English is S9+30/40
but very suptorted; wiggle that patchcord! Something`s always wrong at
RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15311, 15255, 14968, Feb 10 at 1521, only traces of a few of
the plus/minus 26.8 kHz spur multiples from RHC 15140. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 9690-, Feb 10 at 1650, no signal from VON QRMing SBG from
SPAIN, via UTwente SDR, so another Sunday without the new 1630-
English broadcast heard most other days of week, in clear on weekdays
when Spain does not start until 1900 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1968 monitoring: Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria says,
``GERMANY, Reception of World of Radio via HLR on 6190 CUSB on Feb.9
--- Today World of Radio previous edition 1967 instead of current 1968
0731-0800 6190 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg to CeEu English Sat, good signal

Reception of World of Radio via HLR on 9485 CUSB on Feb.9: Today again
World of Radio previous edition 1967, instead of current 1968
1531-1600 9485 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg CeEu English Sat, fair to good``

WOR 1968 confirmed Saturday February 9 after 2200 on WRMI 9955, fair

Delayed on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO. Ham radio shows still running UT
Sunday Feb 10 at 0428, 0454 chex but in progress at 0517 about 19
minutes into, so WOR started circa 0458, good S9+20 and no CWQRM.

I reminded HLR to get 1968 on air for final repeat, and Ivo confirmed:
``World of Radio edition 1968 via HLR on 7265 CUSB on Feb.10
1131-1200 7265 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg CeEu English Sun, poor & weak``

** U S A. 9955, Feb 10 at 1527, WRMI with song in Spanish instead of
The Full Gospel Hour, during weekend-only prolongation of this
frequency past 1500*. But at 1529 abruptly resumes huxtergasms of
Terry Blalock the Blaster. Must have been a lapse (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** U S A. 1660, Feb 10 at 1435 UT, speech affirming how global warming
is happening, also referring to astronomy, big reverb as if a sermon
in a church, but totally secular and rational --- until 1446 when Tom
starts mentioning Jesus, soon organ music. No doubt it`s KWOD Kansas
City KS, well atop lite CCI of sports talk, either Fargo or Waco. KWOD
is also sports-talk but departs to get religion on Sunday mornings

UNIDENTIFIED. 9706-USB, Feb 10 at 0657, weak 2-way in Spanish,
