** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Sept 15 at 1429, LRA36 is on, good
S5-S8 into Brasil SDR. 1431 ``Nacional Antártida Argentina, en todo el
país, la radio pública``, Celsius temps, ``El Lejano Sur``, LRA36 and
RNASG IDs; more and more songs and IDs; 1510 ``noticias`` and
Antártida song; 1514 ``a partir de`` as if just starting; 1548 the
multilingual IDs. Usual stuff, past 1635+.

Meanwhile, Manuel Méndez, Lugo, Spain, informed as early as 0518 UT:
``ANTARCTICA, 15476usb, LRA 36, Radio Nacional Arcángel San Gabriel,
Base Esperanza. The station staff announces via whatsapp that they
will be on the air today Wednesday with a marathon program, 24 hours
uninterrupted. I guess they will start at 1400 UTC, like other
Wednesdays with its usual program.``

All day and all night? Maybe, but NO signals into 3 Brasilian SDRs at
recheck 2258; obviously they need a lower band at night.

The whatsapp jpg includes a truncated direct audio link:

** CUBA. 6165, Sept 15 at 0150, RHC English is back here after jump to
6145 yesterday only; // 6000. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

English, which does remain on 6165, 6060 under humbuzz, while 6000 and
5040 are off. Wolfgang Bueschel explains the 6060:

6060even CUB, RHC Bauta in Spanish, BUZZ STRING bad audio / modulation

UNIDENTIFIED. 771 kHz, Sept 15 at 0154 UT, JBA carrier, het to 770
stations; very close to 771.00 from the pitch of it but not measured.
This of course is not a 9/kHz plan channel, 765 & 774. Possibly some W
Hem 770 transmitter mispunched exactly 1 kHz off? Some months ago
there was a Cuban on 711, causing confusion with genuine TAs on their
correct channel. WRTH lists two of 10 kW on 770, a R. Artemisa and a
R. Rebelde. Too weak to get a bearing on it. MW Offsets has nothing
more than 19 Hz above 770; the Cubans at .987 and .0015 (Glenn Hauser,

UNIDENTIFIED. 1413 kHz, Sept 15 at 0612, the JBA carrier again, see
previous report, maybe Spain; now it`s weaker than 846 presumed
Kiritimati, there is no 771, but there are (2) on 837, most likely
Canary/Spain (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
