** CUBA. 13508-trace, 13572, 13636; 13765, 13831, 13896, 13958
approx., Feb 12 at 1448, spurblobs out of RHC 13700-AM; the closer
stronger ones more readable FM than AM mode, not at all in SSB.
Averaging only ~64 kHz intervals, never landing on OCB/jamming.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15369.233V, Feb 12 at 2139, RHC way off-frequency for second
day, S9/+10 in Brazuguese, and // abnormally weak 11880.0 S7. 15140.0
is still on but dead air, after all-day distortion. Usually all three
are in Portuguese at 2100-2130 rather than 3 different languages. At
2130 supposedly scheduled are Arabic on 15370, Portuguese on 11880.

** EL SALVADOR. 18120.06-USB, Feb 12 at 1919, one signal making it on
``17m`` phone: mostly repeating only callsign over and over
fonetikally, occasionally inserting CQ or QRZ. Accent makes it hard to
read, plus mixture of official ICAO and unofficial fonetix: at first I
thought he was saying ``Ocean United one ---`` something; then pretty
sure the suffix ``Delta Lima`` --- but then the first letter more like
``Hotel``. Only a few minutes later does he get a real contact. Yup,
QRZ.com lookup goes nowhere to OU1DL which might be in Belgium, but
hits upon HU1DL as:
