CUBA. 6000, April 2 at 0342, this RHC English frequency is off; but
fortunately the other one is on and VG, 6165. Something's always wrong
at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

6060, April 3 at 0551, RHC English with the perpetual buzz;
6000 OK, 6100 off, 6145 VG, 5040 in Spanish. Something`s always wrong
at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

6165, April 4 at 0537, RHC English is back here after 6145
last night; can`t decide which? Hard-soul music during 'Music with a
Message', concentrating on 1971 US anti-war era. 6100 is S9+30 but now
developing a squeal à la WWCR-1. 6060 is S9+10 not buzzy for a change
but distorted. 6000 is S9+30 but lo-fi A/B comparing to audio
bandwidth on 6060. 5040 is back in English for a change, S9+30.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

CUBA. RHC check at 0455 UT April 5: 6060 Spanish with humbuzz, 6100
Spanish with squeal, 5040 good in Spanish; 6165 // 6000 music presumed
English service. Something's always wrong at RHC.
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

CUBA. 6165, April 6 at 0235, RHC English, instead of alternate
6145; 6060 nothing but big humbuzz. Something's always wrong at RHC.

6100, April 6 at 0610, RHC final English repeat is OFF. So is 6000.
Still ON are 6165, VG S9+30, and 6060 S9+10/20 but still with big
humbuzz only. SAWA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

CUBA. 6000 & 6100 off, 6060 S9+20 big humbuzz over English; 6165
S9+20 lite hum and undermodulated, 5040 off. Something's always wrong
at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

SAUDI ARABIA. 17615 & 17705, April 2 at 1348 JBA carriers, the only
ones on band besides much stronger 17880, see MALI. The pair of course
correlate with Riyadh which per WRTH is now known as SRI = Saudi Radio
International, or SBA = Saudi Broadcasting Authority, no longer the
legacy BSKSA = Broadcasting Service of the Kingdom of Sa'udi Arabia.
And there are no longer any RIY entries in HFCC as they have
withdrawn; something to hide? Aoki/NDXC shows these frequencies: 17615
at 0855-1157 & 1250-1557; 17705 at 1155-1457. Also 17895 but unheard
today: 0255-0800 & 1155-1457. BTW this 17615 does not seem to be
offset plus as had been for ages (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

SAUDI ARABIA Some logs at 10.27 to 10.52 UT on April 8 in Greece, Qatar,
Delhi, Brisbane and Tokyo Japan remotedly

VANUATU. 11835, April 7 at 0558, one signal with W&M talk, goes
right thru hourtop and 0600.7 a bit of music, news theme? and more
talk. S2-S4. Again I think it is R. Vanuatu X3 despite co-channel CNR2
from China, which I assume would have a ToH timesignal and break,
right? Also a JBA carrier on X2 = 7890 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Today April 8 at 09.30 UT checked Vanuatu signal, only carrier on JBA tiny
level noted at Brisbane-AUS Perseus SDR remotedly, on 3945even,
and hx 7890 and 15780kHz,
but could be rather some spurious vagabunding noise.
