Hauser Update

Thursday, September 10 2020

** CANADA. Richard Langley reminds us that CHU has a page about its
outages, showing none on Sept 8 when I was not hearing 14670-CUSB:
but it was last down August 13-14 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15370, Sept 9 at 2051 in choking Arabic, RHC is back here
ex-extraviation to 15340 the day before, S8-S9 with hum. Something`s
not wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830.058v, Wed Sept 9 at 2200, VOT English to us is already
in news so opened a bit early? Tuned-in via UTwente, S9+50! on the
meter but sounds much weaker and noisy as if a thunderstorm right over
Holland --- but Blitzortung shows the only storms in Europe now are in
the Gulf of Bothnia, and western Mediterranean between islands of
Spain and Italy. Maybe it`s a defect in VOT`s own transmission, or QRN
to the Ankara-Emirler STL? No storms over Turkey either.

I hopefully keep monitoring in case `Letterbox` make a comeback. After
news: 2207 very brief headlines from Foreign Press [no Turkish press
today]; 2209 COVID-19 PSA; 2210 This Day in History; 2213 Did You Know
That? 2216 multi-lingual ID reel which takes about 2 minutes, what a
time-filler! It would be more helpful if each language were introduced
by its English name, to help us learn to distinguish them, especially
the similar Turkic ones. 2218 into Turkish songs, and onward, so yet
again no mailbag. Something`s always awry at Ankara, erroneous at
Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
