** SPAIN. 9690, Fri Feb 16 at 2310, token English from SNR, VG
S9+30/40 into Maryland SDR. Feature is interview about/with flamenco
guitarist (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 9610.004, Fri Feb 16 at 2221 I try the 2130+
English broadcast, S9/+15 into UTwente, not the bigsig it gets after
2300 on 5960 since 9610 is aimed away toward S Asia; but with heavy
SAH of 6 or 7 Hz - I estimate that range by counting rapidly
1-2-3-4-5-6-7 over and over as I watch the seconds tick by on my
watch. This must come from CNR8 Mongolian program via Beijing site,
nothing else now scheduled. S/off of English is underway, seems like
long version with all-wrong times, but hard to copy. 2226 IS is still
running now with IDs in Italian, ``Qui la Voce della Turchia`` -- or
are they saying ``Tuerkiye``? They sound so much alike. 2230 continues
Italian, but hard to copy with almost equal signal from China, both
mostly music. Like German after 0000 and Portuguese after 0100 on
5960, Italian at 2230 is mistaken overrun, not on B23 schedule where
the only Italian is supposed to be at 0930! Same SAH situation at 2300
when I expect English to overrun on 9610 instead of 5960, but
switching to 5960 I do find it on with VG S9+30/40 signal into UTwente
opening English; retune immediately back to 9610, now I hear CNR8
only, so TRT must have QSYed at the same time I did. Or on this date
not really same Emirler transmitter, where something is always

As for the 5960.005 broadcast, I have to split time with SPAIN and
WOR/WRMI check. 2320 `WYEH` promo, music. 2324 `Weekly Analysis` on
relations with Egypt improving since the coup there in 2013y. Erdogan
and large delegation now visiting Cairo. I cannot catch the name of
the writer even tho it`s not the badax reading it. 2329 `WYEH` promo
again, music. 2333 `Folk/Fairy Tales` about the sister of seven
brothers. 2339 music. 2343 `ABYS` promo, music. 2346 `WYEH` promo yet
again, what crutches, music. 2351 `ABYS` again and s/off the version
with all times wrong in local yet called UTC; something`s always awry
at Ankara. Not noted IS and cutoff time, but not on after 0000, just
East Turkistan, standard denunciations (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
