** CUBA. 4765 & 5025, March 17 at 0237, both missing, no Progress and
no Rebellion. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** CUBA. 15140, Sunday March 17 at 1538, RHC only S3/S5 and JBM in
Spanish into Maryland SDR, while 11760 is S4/S6. Before 1500 I was not
hearing either direct, boding ill for Esperanto, but I forgot to try
for that between 1500 and 1530 which should be its DST timing. By
1551, 11760 off and 15140 S5 JBM Spanish. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY. 9670, March 17 at 0618, song at S2/S3, surely Channel 292,
nothing else listed 24h except Vietnam radio war at 1230-1300. Date by
date program sked shows nothing specific most of the time, including
Seldom do I get more than a JBA carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALI. 5995, March 17 at 0606, music JBA vs my high noise level, so
ORTM reactivated without a blob; had been reported March 16 around
2339 by HF Undergrounders via Ron Howard. Wolfgang Bueschel reports
day frequency 9635 also active (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925 USB, March 17 at 0226, hard rock. R75 Noise
Blanker very much needed and helps a lot. Some reports here as Leeroy,
per fuzzy SSTV; went off at 0234:
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6970 USB, March 17 at 0227, soft rock. Many logs
here as Solar Federation Radio:
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 90.1, KUCO: I thought I heard them mention a .org
website, instead of the usual kucofm.com So this explains why the old
site was inaccessible on some browsers: https://classicalkuco.org is
the new URL now, tho the contents are much like the old one including
secrecy about what`s scheduled 12-6 am CDT Saturdays. But if you enter
the old URL on Edge it converts to the new one (Glenn Hauser, Enid,

** PERU. 4810 & 4820, March 17 at 0238, JBA carriers from these two
but not 4775. Later at night there`s only 4810 (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** SAUDI ARABIA. 11745, March 17 at 0217, Qur`an at S2/S3, no doubt
the `AFRTS` for forces in Yemen, `Al Azm`, the only thing on 11745,
24h per EiBi & Aoki, site Jeddah. Must be about time for breakfast
stuffage among Ramadaners. Violating Separation of Mosque and State,
haha (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 11915, around 22 UT March 16, I noticed no horrible
noiseblob from defective transmitter for Rep. of Yemen Radio; is it
gone again, or moved? Also absent March 17 at 1542 into UTwente, nor
on ex-11820, ex-11860. Could be somewhere else on 25 mb if checked
thoroly, outstanding sorethumbly (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 17865, Sunday March 17 at 1438, S7/S9 Spanish talk about
Ukraine, the R. Martí weekend-only from 1300 broadcast. M-F should be
back on 17680 instead at 17-21. What`s the other Martí playing at 1442
on 11930? ``We Will Rock You``, off-topic? 11860 & 13820 not on yet
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2234 monitoring: confirmed UT
Sunday March 17 at 0000 on WRMI 9955, S7/S9 into Bonaire; S9+20
direct, no jamming audible.

Also confirmed UT Sunday March 17 at 0353, about 2 minutes into so
nominal 0315v started about 0351 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO, S9+20 into
nearby SDR. Late-running Houston Hamsat net playback ran until 0339
ARRL news, so that lasted only 12 minutes. WOR has sometimes appeared
early so need to start checking by 0230. Next:

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JJBBA MW carrier search, March 17 at
0233: nothing but 711 & 891 vs the high noise level, surely Western
Sahara and Algeria. At 0609, only 711 and 882; I suppose 25 kW COPE
Tenerife, Canarias most likely on 882 vs a 10 kW in Wales (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)
