** CUBA. 15230, March 19 at 2218, S7/S9 of dead air direct, or
possibly JBM inaudible vs my noise level. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY [non]. FRANCE, 9830.065 approx., March 19 at 0654, S6/S9 in
African language: have noticed this skewer for some time, so finally
logged and looked up: DW Hausa via ISSoudun, where offfrequenciness is
rampant, 0630-0700 per EiBi. Two later DW Hausas on 9830 at 13-14 &
18-19 UT are via SAO TOME, so likely different offset if not .000 --
March 19 at 1821, UTwente shows 9829.998 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 1120, March 19 at 2227 UT, I notice on the DX-398 that
KETU Catoosa/Tulsa is back on air after absence a few days, partial ID
in passing in Spanish as ``La Diferente`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ROMANIA. 9485-9490-9495, March 19 at 2214, DRM noise S9 direct.
First guess France test, but RRI Spanish hour is registered with HFCC
as D = NOT DRM, from Tsiganeshti (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 11935, March 19 at 0218, no signal direct from the
roarer, probably off after still having been on at 0028. Next check
0530 into UTwente, still nothing. Nor at 0649 direct. But finally at
1559 into UTwente, it`s back! S9+10. Also at 1820, 1901 chex. Vatican
11935 1630-1730 & 1940-2000 CIRAF targets per HFCC are Egypt, Turkey,
Yemen at 130 degrees, the last one in Latin daily. So I check remotes
in Kenya, Qatar and Kuwait at 1940: Kuwait is only 534 km = 332 stmi
from Riyadh so might be in skip zone? But strong roar only at all
three. Guess what, per WRTH, Latin at 1940-2000 is NOT daily but as
you might expect, Rosary on Sundays only, and this is Tuesday. 11935
further monitoring March 19: 2213 still roaring S9 direct. 2258 into
UTwente still S9+ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960.005, March 19 at 2259, VOT not off the air,
IS, S9+30/40 into UTwente, 2300 s/on as if the 1330 broadcast only,
and news. 2312 `Review of the Turkish Press` until only 2314 music,
and by now there is JBA undercurrent of XJRTV, EAST TURKISTAN (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2234 monitoring: confirmed UT
Tuesday March 19 at 0330 on WRMI 7780, S9/+10 into Durango2 SDR.

** U S A. 5950, UT Tue Mar 19 at 0659, WRMI, as Joe in southwest
Missouri is upwrapping `Your UFO Show`, no ToH ID and 0700 switch to
TOMBS. The only time on the `A24` skedgrid for UFO is UT Tue-Sat
0030-0100 on System L via 5950! While the xmtr sked atop for WRMI-8,
5950 claims System E starts TOMBS at 0600 UT Tue-Sat! Yet another
inconsistency (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier check, March 19 at 0205:
only 855 with two carriers beating, likely Spains. Nothing on the
usual other spots 531/1044 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
