** CUBA [and non]. 9330, Feb 8 at 0727, digiblaaps alternating with YL
SS 5-digit spy numbers, clearly underneath WBCQ/WLCR adding up to
S9+45. This longtime collision is back as the Cuban spy transmissions
have recently resumed, sharing RHC transmitters. The 07 UT broadcast
had been scheduled on alternate days, or exactly per EiBi: 0654-0750
on days 1357 = M/W/F/Sundays; Aoki as days 1246 = Sun/M/W/F --- but
this is Thursday! Cuba was on 9330 long before WBCQ picked it. While
my local line noise level is S9+ on lower bands, above 9 MHz it`s only
S2/S3 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2229)

** U S A. 379 MCW kHz, Feb 8 at 0745 UT, ND beacon ID as RU - this is
obviously the 25-watt defective one in Russellville AR, RUE, having
lost its E long ago, not so noted in DXinfocentre.com but in RNA list:
``08Oct23 Tony reports it is mis-keying as 'RU' . . . no E``. This was
surely my WTF,K? log Feb 6 at 0735, not a real RU on 272 or 275 kHz.
