** CUBA. 5025, Nov 21 at 0748, S9+20 of dead air from R. Rebelde,
which is often on the air and modulating earlier in evenings.
Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [non]. 9330, Nov 21 circa 0745, NO sign of spy numbers this
date nor on other random dates lately during this hour; rather WLCR
via WBCQ in the clear after years of collisions on alternate nights.
Matches this from Rick Barton on the WOR iog: ``9330 UNITED STATES
(Maine) WBCQ 0700. Long lecture by man in Portuguese. Strong - but
choppy - signal. Most notably, no co-channel Cuban ##s station for
weeks now (also true with all the other numbers skeds). -- Fair to
Good Nov. 19 Barton-AZ`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [non]. 13820, Nov 21 at 2140 check, no Martí here nor on
A-channel 13605; nor any jamming against nothing on either penetrates
local noise level. O, to be expected as 13820 is now sked only until
2100*; while 11860 & 11930 are still on VG. Nor any 35790 audible yet
on 3 x 11930 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9442.489, Nov 21 at 2135, R. Cairo not off the air but way
off-frequency, S9+20 direct with music only during brief check while
modulation sounds tolerable. FYI, this includes a +7 Hz correxion
factor to the R75 zerobeat readout compared to WWV 10000. Something`s
amiss at Abis (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960.005, Nov 21 at 2300, VOT audible direct, S9+20 would
be sufficient if not for the local noise bursts to S9+40. Then
S9+20/30 into UTwente where measured, 2353 in canned signoff with
all-wrong local times labeled UTC, 2354 IS. Something`s always awry at
Ankara. 2356 restart IS with German ID, chopoff by 2356.6*. Strangely,
uncovers only a trace of algo rather than the usual fCCCCCCI from East
Turkistan (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2217 monitoring: confirmed UT
Tuesday November 21 at 0030 on WRMI 9395, S9/+20 direct; starts right
