Hi Glenn, My latest Hitlist update.

1) USA - WEWN: Updated label for link to frequencies as it now links
to current A-24 schedule [as expected, 12050 Spanish, 15610 English
which has been missing lately -gh]

2) USA - WINB: Updated links to frequency/programme pages

3) USA - WRMI: Updated links to WRMI frequency and programme page for
A-24 season

The next update is scheduled for late March. Best wishes and 73, Alan

** CUBA. 15140, March 14 at 1900, no signal from RHC English at summer
timing, only heard once so far, nor 11760. The Other Side:

Raúl Castro: the general in his defeat

Erratic policies, produced by fear and devoid of objectives, have been
the hallmarks of this Raulian era, the perfect culmination of a regime
that is close to disappearing and that no one will miss.

Rafaela Cruz, La Habana 07 Mar 2024 - 20:12 CET

If pathological cowardice is mixed with intellectual vacuity, the
result is a Raúl Castro. This general with more stars on his
epaulettes than shots fired in combat - his command on the Second
Front was a kind of camping trip - would border on the pathetic if it
were not for the fact that while he basks in Cuba's best cays, the
people are scraping and struggling just to eat.

His late brother — the main character responsible for the country's
ruin— although racking up a string of disasters sufficient to fill an
encyclopedia of failure, at least had the ability to survive by
prostituting himself politically, monetizing his virulent ideology,
and exporting his totalitarian method. But Raúl cannot even manage
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [non]. R. Martí: see U S A 17680

** HAWAII [and non]. 10000-10004 approx., March 14 at 0636, noise
blast QRMs WWVH, must tune for it on LSB. The Standard Frequencies are
supposed to be protected (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALI. 5995, March 14 at 0639, still nothing but noise blob,
presumably out of defective ORTM transmitter (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD
OF RADIO 2234)

** U S A. 17865, March 14 from 1600, NO signal from Grimesland for R.
Martí. Will the 13-17 UT segment ever appear?

17680 open carrier is already on at 1653, S9+10/15 into UTwente. Very
rough start! 1700 still dead air. 1701 VOA WDC s/on with YDD - again
at 1702! after DA pause, at 1703 VOA WDC s/OFF. 1704 different s/off
with contact info for programming. 1704.5 VOA ID with YDD. 1705
disclaimer, no programming available, so music fill. Disclaimer
blaming on propagation conditions. Propagation OK, so resuming
programming. 1706 regrets there is no programming. 1707 VOA beginning
AFRTS! VOA finishing AFRTS. Dead air.

1708, finally R. Martí ID, and into program `La Libertad es Libro`,
featuring Ukrainian poetry in translation, but mostly discussing it.
1800 no ToH break. 1803 VOA Editorial: anti-Putin. 1808 back to
MartiNoticias. 1809 `Abriendo Espacios` women`s show. 1858 another VOA
Editorial. 2000 recheck, VOA editorial about Ukraine, again (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2234)

Comments from the WOR iog: Kai Ludwig, Germany: ``Nothing in HFCC so
far, and no publicity at the usual places either. "Abriendo Espacios"
as programme name is too generic for a web search without further

Is this Martí or rather VOA? Perhaps some kind of cooperation, but
still one could ask if this is a playout from Miami or Washington.

And why not from either Biblis or Lampertheim, which would provide
significantly better reception? They keep churning out 5.7 million
dollar each year for these meanwhile badly underused facilities. I
think I asked already some kind ago what kind of strategy this is, or
if they have any beyond "we always did it this way" at all.

So no one in Russia and Ukraine will listen to shortwave anymore, but
mercenaries from Cuba will? To a sub-standard signal, delivered over
almost 9,000 kilometres? Made my day. Kai Ludwig``

Bill Tilford, IN: ``It wasn't all that far back that Martí was
broadcasting DRM to Cuba. They are never given an Oinker Award but
have been a worthy candidate for years - an operation in search of a
mission. Personally, I think the most plausible explanation for their
existence is a place to hide part of the black budget. Just a theory,
but a good one methinks``

Tony Pavick, BC: ``I have a slightly noisy but fairly understandable
signal. Discussion with a university professor talking about writing a
diary about Ukraine to tell the world about what is happening.

This is a really fascinating undertaking. While some may question its
effectiveness, the thought of targeting deployed Cuban troops with R
Marti in some form where it won't be jammed as at home is intriguing.
In a sense this is a bit like Radio Atlántico del Sur and Argentina's
Liberty. Tony``

Another commented: ``It`s a joke`` (via WORLD OF RADIO 2234)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2233 monitoring: ``WRMI 9395 kHz,

** U S A. 9395 // 9455, March 14 at 0633 Korean, 0634 into English,
i.e. Supreme Master TV. Now at this hour and a few other WRMI blox
sked on two System J frequencies instead of just one. Its
unpredictable multi-lingual format with no translation captions
possible makes it quite a turnoff for radio listeners; besides its
cultish devotion to the SM, however laudable its environmental outlook
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7260, March 14 at 0638, R. Vanuatu is JBA vs noise level,
totalling S9+20; at least confirming it`s on as you never know when it
will vanish. Ron Howard logs it in detail most nights (Glenn Hauser,
