** CUBA. 11950-11975, June 1 at 2250, REE splattering out of 11950
transmitter; sounds a lot like the local noise blobs OG&E has been
working on, so at first feared they remain, but these have matching
modpeaxe to 11950. Not unusual for this frequency to be active before
2300 despite its razón de ser the `Mesa Redonda` separate TV audio
soundtrack hour nominally from 7 pm local (not 00-01 UT, don`t you
believe Aoki/NDXC`s outdated standard time info among others for RHC).
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** INDIA. 7380, June 1 at 0053, S9+25 signal with DSB tone close to
1000 Hz, almost overcoming 7375 Romania; what? 0101 YL in unID
language, music with very minor harmonies; 0109 now OM in S Asian
language. It`s the AIR Sindhi service at 01-02, which Jose Jacob said
resumed May 9. Sindhis are in both northern India, and Pakistan. But
this is an ``external`` service; HFCC registered as 0045-0200, 400
[sic] kW at 300 degrees from Bengaluru (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925, June 2 at 0043, VP signal, mushy music
chanting & yelling, on USB & LSB, but unstable carrier seems reduced.
Several logs here say it`s Yeah Man Radio, but no complaints about the
audio, rather ``sounding great here``:

** SPAIN. 9690, June 1 at 2130, accurate timesignal and ID as REE, so
back in business as of today, after default to domestic RNE relay
fillers. YL`s program, didn`t catch title, said it was the first one
in three months. In Spanish. Unfortunately I was distracted after
2200, but by 2245 recheck REE is in French on 9690 VG, 11940 good,
11670 VP, and 12030 missing --- so English probably also resumed at
2200-2230 (M/W/F). That`s soon confirmed as I check the WOR iog: Alan
Roe, Teddington UK, said at 2121:

``The REE programme guide on their website at
has today (1 June) changed to show programming in English from 1 June
(at 2200, French at 2230 and Portuguese at 2300 UT). If confirmed
shortly, then that will be a welcome return to shortwave of these
language services following the disruption caused by Covid-19.

Scheduled frequencies are 9690, 11670, 11940 and 12030 kHz (12030 not
currently audible here (2115 UT - may be off air at present).``

And he follows up at 2207: ``REE English language service confirmed
back on-air at 2200 on 1 June on 9690, 11670 & 11940 kHz, with a short
introduction by Justin Coe and Alison Hughes remembering lost
colleagues at REE and playing Requiem music.``

Harold Frodge, MI, adds at 2210: 11940 VGood at 2200, 11670 fair &
only a tone on 12030. 9690 best. At 2205 running Requiem by Francisco

I want to hear that. REE`s huge podcast archive has not yet added the
latest #2162, since 14 March, tnx to direct link in the WOR Hitlist:

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2036 monitoring: confirmed UT Tue June 2 at
0100 on WRMI 7780, poor S7-S9, but good via UTwente altho with its

0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

** U S A. 9330, June 2 at 0046, WLCR via WBCQ-6, June 2 at 0046 is
back on in Brazuguese, only S8 to S9+10 offbeam here. Guess they
rerefixed the ring around the tube socket thingie, but for how long?
Was not on earlier June 1. As of 0325 UT June 2, no AW twits about
this yet, since the last one May 31 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7489.98 approx., UT Tue June 2 at 0051, the unique Spanish
accent of Bill Tilford during FTIOM on WBCQ-1; with BFO can tell the
carrier is unstable. Good signal level by this hour. Nothing on 6160v
or 5130 now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7520, June 2 at 0050, Brother Scare is here now at S9+50 via
WWCR-4. Wacko stuff about HAARP causing earthquaxe. On the transmitter
sked expiring May 31, the only one yet visible, 7520 was available
00-02 UT but preferable totally blank programming (Glenn Hauser, OK,
