** CUBA. 6060, Feb 13 at 0546, this RHC is back on but Spanish instead
of English, SS also on // 6100, 5040; while English is only on 6000 //
9700. Maybe English got more after 0600? retiring ``early`` tonight.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 13700, Feb 13 at 1548, RHC is incredibly JBA with a
SAH no doubt Brother Scare Bulgaria. Tuning down the band, figured
13700 would be off since there were no spurs. Meanwhile, // music on
11760 is S9+20 but distorted. Soon mentions this being Dia Mundial de
la Radio as declared by UNESCO. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

Recheck at 1557, now the extremely distorted FMish spurblobs with F#
tone are back, as fundamental 13700-AM has charged up to full power:
approx. 13560, 13630, 13770 S8-S9, 13840, 13910-trace, i.e. ~70 kHz
intervals. Something`s always wrong at RHC; 1558 IS and all go off by
1600* uncovering a JBA carrier on 13700, i.e. per Aoki/NDXC,
Kostinbrod, Bulgaria, still BSing supposedly until 1800 (Glenn Hauser,

** ERITREA [non]. 17545.06V, Sat Feb 13 at 1557, JBA Bayto Yaikl on
one of two weekly RMI-brokered emissions via FRANCE at 1530-1600 Wed &
Sat. As always, this defective Issoudun transmitter is
cycling/wobbling up and down in frequency, as I try to measure it,
roughly 17545.055 to 17545.065 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15825, Feb 13 at 2142, no signal from WWCR-1, not even the
usual JBA carrier within the normal skip zone at 1 megameter at 15-16
MHz. 6115, also no signal for WWCR-1 on its next frequency from 2200.
Ivo Ivanov also noted no signal earlier today at 0645 on 3215, the
WWCR-1 frequency at 02-12 UT. This is the same transmitter which for
months, yea years, has been squealing, ``I`m sick! Please help me``.
John Jurasek, the VORW, soon noted at 0713, also to the WOR iog:

``It looks like there may be some technical problems - this is now
posted on their website: "WWCR expects to experience problems with
operation on 3.215 MHz for several days. Parts cannot be ordered to
fix the problem quickly, due to a temporary closure with a parts
vendor." All the best, John J. (Florida)``

Looking at the WWCR-1 program schedule, this means that John`s
``VROW`` [sic], one of very few non-gospel huxter shows, will not be
heard as scheduled Saturday at 23-24 on 6115. But why does WWCR
website mention 3215 only without the other two daily #1 frequencies?
