** CUBA [and non]. 15140, April 2 at 2222, RHC Spanish running way
late, S9+10/20 in Spanish; 15230 S9/+10 but JBM and not //,
probably Portuguese. Something`s always wrong at RHC. 11760 at
2225 with Chinese! music, S9+10/20. HFCC shows that`s CRI
``Portuguese`` via Xi`an to Europe, i.e. fill music instead just like
the Cuba relay at 23-24 on 13650, which is still running at 2310
check, and all other ``Portuguese`` from CRI. Anyhow, at this hour RHC
is OFF 11760 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT [non]. 9440, April 2 at 2227, S9+10/20 in English, but not
Cairo which if it ever reactivate at 2115-2245 will have a problem.
BBCWS now sked this hour only, 200 degrees via USAGM Tinang,
PHILIPPINES, yet sufficient way back here (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 255 MCW kHz, April 2 at 0705 UT, SW, ND beacon at
StillWater! First time heard since Nov 24, 2023. Local line noise
level abated a bit, and red noise limiter on NRD545 helps; despite
storm noise now from eastern OK. But I should have been able to detect
at least a carrier on nightly/daily LW bandscans, so presumed just
reactivated after another protracted outage. I wonder if tornadoes in
the area prompted a turn-on? (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** ROMANIA. 11800, April 2 at 2218. RRI English S9+10/20 direct, an
alternative to Turkey 11785 (Glenn Hauser, oK, WOR0

** SPAIN. 17855, April 2 at 2219, still no signal from REE`s NAm
transmitter, but only Spanish on Tue. 17715 for SAm certainly
propagating, better than usual, S9+10/20 direct about equal to ME
channel 15520. Something`s notright at Noblejas (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** TURKEY [and non]. 11785.009, April 2 at 2216, S9+20/30 direct, VOT
English with multi-lingual ID filler reel; 11780 RNA Brasil also on
today at S9+10/20 but not a problem. 2248 into UTwente when measured,
VG but strength not noted, promo for TRT World, music; 2250 new promo
for TRTEnglish.com; 2251 s/off by the badax as if this were the
``twelve-dirty to dirteen-dirty`` on 17620 only, plus satellite
parameters, and IS until off at 2255.5*. Something`s always awry at
Ankara (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. Some NDBs JBA, April 2 after 0705 UT, with local
line noise slightly abated and red noise limiter engaged on NRD545,
and despite storm noise from eastern OK: 293, FBY FairBurY NE; 326, MA
MidlAnd TX; 332, QT Thunder Bay ON; 353, LI, LIttle Rock AR; 379, RU
RUssellville AR - really RUE but for longtime dropping the E. See also
OKLAHOMA for 255, SW. Several more carriers only, I could make likely
guesses from experience. Nothing ``new``, which would require
near-eliminating the line noise (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2236 monitoring: confirmed UT
Tuesday April 2 at 0339 the 0330 on WRMI 7780, S9+5/12 into Durango2
SDR. This time plays to completion 0359. Next:

2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW

[previous #2235][SW suspended but still streamed?]

One may also contribute by MO or check in US funds on a US bank to:
Glenn Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** YEMEN [non].11935, horrible noise finally replaced by Arabic,
modulation a bit choppy, S6/S8 into UTwente at 1913 April 2 == and at
1916, Republic of Yemen Radio ID in Arabic! 1918 militaristic song.
That confirms what we have been following around from 11860 to 11820
to 11915 to 11935, via Riyadh, Sa`udi Arabia. I keep listening
continuously, lots of good music and no transmission breaks, but *2030
edged by 11940 ACI of CRI fanfare, i.e. Bulgarian via Kunming. Could
still listen on 11935 LSB. Recheck direct at 2226: no signal on 11935;
nor into UTwente at 2246 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 2324 UT April 2
