** CUBA. 11760, March 2 at 0748, S9+20 of dead air; AND 11670, S9/+10
of dead air; obviously RHC which may have been modulating English or
Spanish before 0700; while no RHC signals remain on 5, 6 or 10 MHz
bands. Something`s always wrong at RHC. The Other Side:

``One year of war in Ukraine: a timeline of the Cuban regime's support
for its Russian ally --- Havana has tried to ease the UN’s pressure on
Moscow and has echoed Putin's disinformation in Latin America. DDC
Madrid 01 Mar 2023 - 01:47 CET

Russia's war in Ukraine is one year old. Since February 24, 2022, more
than 42,200 people have died and 14 million have been displaced in
what Vladimir Putin defined in his speech as a "special military
operation" in defense of the Donbas region. Beyond the human and
material consequences for Ukrainians, the first territorial invasion
of a sovereign state in Europe in 80 years has had international
repercussions, from food to energy.

What the western democracies condemned from the very first moment, and
continue to today, with heavy sanctions against the aggressor, was
justified by the Cuban regime, also from the beginning of the
conflict. Havana has been in charge of reducing pressure on Moscow
exerted by the United Nations, and has disseminated the disinformation
spouted by Putin across Latin America...``

** U S A [and non]. 1140 kHz, March 2 at 0700 UT, rock music dominant
on both DX-398 and R75 with E/W longwire. I`m here for an unconfirmed
DX test by KXST Las Vegas, sibling station to 720 KDWN, both about to
go dark. I never hear any sign of KXST with gambling format or
anything. Instead, it`s ``Good Time Oldies``, 1140 KZMQ IDs heard at
0701, 0707. That`s a 10 kW *daytimer*, non-direxional in Greybull,
Wyoming, but address in Cody some 40 miles west. I see it`s been
reported at night before as early as 2020, and as recently as last
month. But not this: ``1140 KZMQ Greybull, WY old slogan: “Good Time
Oldies”, new: “Star 92.9”`` as per Broadcasting Info, IRCA DX Monitor
Feb 25 --- no mention of the latter, still G-T-O.

Meanwhile on 1140 also noted: 0701 ABC news, 0709 Coast-to-Coast, both
likely WRVA Richmond VA; 0710 XEMR Monterrey, Spanish from south
plugging its platforms but asserting that AM is still primary,
probably a gospel huxter (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2180)

** VANUATU [and non]. 7260, March 2 at 0740, R. Vanuatu back on
tonight, S8/S9 with JBA talk probably cyclone warnings; aside Nigeria
7255- dead air. Others` reports:

Ron Howard: ``7260, Radio Vanuatu: Feb 28 - From 0742+ UT; tuned in to
hear emergency sirens followed by multi-language cyclone warnings for
Tropical Cyclone Judy and advising people to have plenty of water,
food for 2 to 3 days, have candles, batteries, etc. due to electricity
possibly being off for several days, and for information, listen to
TV, Radio Vanuatu and check the Internet; followed by more sirens;
0750, the usual advertisement for the "mobile stage" for events in
Vanuatu and PSA for mental health; 0831, more sirens and cyclone

March 2 - From 1002+ UT; emergency sirens and advising people to
listen to TV, Radio Vanuatu and the Internet for the latest cyclone
info; 1007-1017, sounded like the Prime Minister's speech to the the
nation (poor audio quality); 1026, "Tropical Cyclone Warning Number 4"
for cyclone Kevin, giving location, direction, and speed.

. Map showing the location of cyclone Kevin -
RV totally blocked at 1057, with very strong sign on of CRI, in
Japanese (*1057-1257* UT). Ron, California``

And Tony Rogers, UK, BDXC: ``Checked for Radio Vanuatu on the Te
Kauwhata KiwiSDR in New Zealand at just after 1200 UTC today (2 March)
and found them back on 7260 kHz with an emergency broadcast now in
place for Tropical Cyclone Kevin. 7260 kHz also has CRI Japanese
between 1100-1300 (from Xian 500 kW) but Radio Vanuatu still well
audible on this SDR. 73’s Tony`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO

UNIDENTIFIED. 9510.1, March 2 at 0759, S9 carrier with hum, one
zero-beat about +0.1 kHz. It seems no one else is interested in
pursuing this? Ah, here is one other report: ``9510 S8 hum back;
missing a few days; 1723, 3/1; 1438, 3/2 (Harold Frodge-MI)`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9895 USB, March 2 at 0756, JBA 2-way seems like Spanish
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
