** CUBA. 15140, April 14 at 1930, RHC English is on, S5/S6 into
Maryland SDR with squeal; waterfall clearly shows two spurs wider than
center frequency, about 15136.3 and 15143.7, the lower one slightly
brighter. Also with stuff extending out from center to a sesquikHz or
so. Something`s always wrong at RHC. Aside from that, program
modulation is OK. AMNarrow gets rid of the squeal. 1934 Caribbean
Island show: Grenada and its relations with Cuba. 11760 is off this
time (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 11935, April 14 at 1525 into UTwente, huge horrible
roar again, S9+10, flailing trying to Synchlock, stops briefly on
11935.197, then 11934.717 -- merely instantaneous spotting. Still at
next check 1926. The SA transmitter is haywire again. Had been clear
starting April 2. Or are there two different transmitters? Why in the
world would they let it transmit for long hours/days/months in such a
condition? Inaudible programming presumably still Republic of Yemen
Radio (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 17865, April 14 at 1542, R. Martí weekend service for Cuban
forces for Russia in Ukraine, is still running, music at the moment,
sked 13-17 S&S, and still 17-21 M-F on 17690. 17865 achieves S9+5/15
into UTwente, so presumably also audible by the mercenaries, should
they care to listen, or even be aware of it. 1545 DJ mentions Peter
Gabriel, Music without Frontiers, so this is not just music fill. Must
be referring to and playing `Games without Frontiers`, which could be
interpreted as anti-war:
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2238 monitoring: continued from
last report: on IRRS/NEXUS/IBA/IPAR webcast only, the Sat 2334 airing
is indeed out of kilter as always, still running by 0000 UT Sun April
14, when I hear via Argentine remote the WRMI 9955 play at 0000, S9+5
already starting, until about 0000.4 when I am faded out by IRRS to be
replaced by fill music! This is because `Feature Story News` has to
run at 2330. I have asked them before to let us air completely from
2330 to 2359 - then FSN, fill music or whatever!

Also confirmed UT Sunday April 14 from 0340.5 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM,
S9+20 into nearby remote; delayed by the almost interminable Houston
Hamsat net playback, and then for less than 15 minutes, ARRL News - so
once you hear that you know WOR will be along shortly. Vern has to
insert his own ID every dekaminute, often interrupting me in the
middle of a word. Next:
