** CUBA. 11670, May 3 at 0619, RHC English on here and nowhere else,
including all 6 MHz channels off. S9+20 and with spurs about +/- 3
kHz. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** KURDISTAN [non]. 17480, May 3 at 1504, only JBA carrier direct
below 17500 is here, presumably Turkjammer and/or Dengê Welat (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)
** SPAIN. 17855, Wed May 3 at 2130, REE Spanish show with a few songs
toward the end but mostly talk about them, and the final song had to
be interrupted at 2200 for accurate timesignal and into token English.
VG direct and other frequencies not checked. One news item about today
being the 30th anniversary of World Press Freedom Day. 2206 into Amy
Egan interview with a prof. from Edinburgh who specialises in Spanish
lit., in Madrid to moderate a discussion between a novelist and a very
different author. Don`t know them and can`t get interested so over to
TURKEY by 2222 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** TURKEY. 11785, May 3 at 2222 tune-in to VOT direct, VG today unlike
yesterday, just ending `Shipping Piles` ? about AI, and ``every hour``
promo liner, music. 2227 ``always by your side`` promo liner and
`Weekly Commentary` repeat of yesterday by Ibrahim ---. 2241 Feeling
Supreme/`The Healing Spring` about melissa ? tea, i.e. with honey? (I
agree with Alan Roe that T.H.S. name is clear as each episode starts,
but the canned opening & closing keep sounding like F.S.) 2249 music.
2253 s/off, off by 2254.6* without hearing any IS (Glenn Hauser, OK,
** U A E. 15310.13v, May 3 at 1458, JBA carrier direct, BBC new Arabic
special for Sudan warming up via Dhabbaya site to start at 1500.
UTwente is inaccessible, so checking other SDRs: at 1518 Kenya gets it
S9/+10 at +42 Hz but I think its calibration is off; can`t get any 5,
10 or 15 MHz WWV to check. RSA remote is more like it, S9/+15 at +127
Hz. At 1527, Maryland SDR lox onto it altho inaudible, at 15310.132.
Back to Nairobi for closing: stops about 1529.5, dead air, and `World
Service` uttered before cut off 1530*.
Nicely correlating with such offfrequenciness is this about the other
Sudan service: ``Glenn, I'm listening to the new BBC Arabic Service to
the Sudan refugees on 21510.15 at 0702 (May 3), via the Kuwait SDR
(Chuck Albertson, Seattle, Wash.)`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2188 monitoring: confirmed Tuesday
May 2 at 2336 the 2330 on WRMI 9395, S9/+20.
Also confirmed Wednesday May 3 at 2100+ on WBCQ 7490-: JBA carrier
direct: needs to be on higher band in summerish. S9/+10, minus 73 Hz
into Maryland SDR = 7489.927. Next:
0030 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

** U S A. 17790, 15770, 9455, 9395, May 3 at 1502-1505+, all WRMI
channels supposed to be on now, are OFF. Wonder what`s the problem?
Hope not serious. There is NO lightning in Florida at this time.
Nothing about this at disgraced FB. I am first checking direct; and
noting that 15825 WWCR and 15555-USB WJHR are both VG, with sporadic E
boosts. 1526 recheck at Maryland SDR, nothing on the four WRMI
frequencies. Ditto at 1652. What will happen at 2100? 9955 & 5950 are
supposed to start, 17790 to stop. Just after 2100, via Maryland
remote, 15770 is in well, and the 9s are poor (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. 15555 USB, May 3 at 1502, WJHR VG direct at S9+10 tnx to
sporadic E boost, and 1503 ID as ``near Pensacola, Florida``, email
address. At this time 15825 WWCR is also boosted, but 15770 WRMI is
off, incomparable (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
