** CUBA. Surveying RHC usage, UT Sat June 8 at 0046-0051: 11760 OFF.
11950 S9+15/25 of dead air or possibly JBM: supposedly sked 23-24 UT
only and // 6000 which is now OFF. Nowhere else on 25m. 9700, 9650,
9535 all OFF. 9710 has S7/S9 weak music, presumably CRI `Portuguese`
music fill via Kashgar, EAST TURKISTAN, std. denunciation. 15140 &
15230 OFF. However the domestix on 4765 & 5025 are ON, vs HSNL. 5990
CRI relay music undermodulated S9+5/10.

0113 recheck into Maryland SDR: 15230 is now ON with S9+5 of dead air.
And so still 11950. 6000 still off. 9580 S9+20/30 undermodulated CRI
English. Then I`ve set it to 9699 USB with slight 10 dB of squelch to
tonally notify me if and when 9700 cut on: still not by 0204, just
some occasional lightning crashes break thru, nothing but those by
0259. 6000 still off at 0210, 0258, no English. The Other Side:

``Repression --- Cuban mothers shoulder the burden of their children's
political prison sentences: 'We have to scream' --- An 11-J protester
calls for solidarity with prisoners with mental illnesses who are
suffering mistreatment and discrimination in Cuban jails.
DDC Madrid 04 Jun 2024 - 19:12 CEST...``

** SPAIN. 17855, Fri June 7 at 2158, SNR S9+30/40 direct, 2200 token
English, previewing part 2 of Book Fair report, and later, Flamenco
Festival in London. Only Marilyn Quintana; and they always also
mention behind-the-scenes support names. 2201 news starts with South
Africa vs Israel over Gaza at International Court of Justice. 2206
already Feria del Libro, interviewing a bookstore owner where business
is not so good. Now I find that 17715 for S America is unusually
almost as good as 17855 for us, i.e. S9+10/20, better than off the
back to ME 15520, only S8/S9; and 15390 for Africa S7/S9 with an echo,
long/short path? Theoretically 15520 would more likely echo but too
strong already directly off the back (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785, June 7 at 2158, zero signal direct from VOT, which
ought to show since Romania 11800 is quite audible. 2203 algo on 11785
much weaker than 11780 Brasil. UTwente chex later at 2220, 2231, 2240:
VOT definitely absent in English. Not on 11795 mispunch either. 9875
overrun? not checked until 2254, but no. Something`s always erroneous
at Emirler. So they also miss a chance not to German at 2300.

7275.018, June 8 at 0316, however, final repeat of the previous UT day
is on, S9+15/25 into UTwente during music. // 6165.005, aimed away, is
S8/S9, and diminishing. 0325 multi-lingual ID filler reel. 0328
`Turkish Folk Tales` about friendship. 0335 music. Some distortion on
the 7275+ modulation. 0340 ``always by your side`` promo. 0341 `That`s
Why` by Ms Badax, about Roman Empire... (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Pre-`AAAWWW` check of WBCQs, June 7 at 2341, into Maryland
SDR: 3265+ and 5130+ still OFF. 6160 - 70 Hz = 6159.93 TOMBS? 7490 -71
Hz = 7489.929, S9+20/25 FKB. 9330.000, S9+15 of WLCR Brazuguese. After
0000 UT Sat June 8, on 7490- ONLY, disclaimer that following AAAWWW
originally aired Friday January 26, 2024. So now it`s the seventh rerun
in a row! I already reported on that one when new. Where are A&A now
and why are they not producing new shows? As usual, not a clue on the
WBCQ website and I can`t follow twits if any on X (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** U S A. 9455, June 8 at 0040, WRMI is S9+20/30 but just barely
modulated = JBM: YL talk intonation sounds Japanese? Yes, RAE relay in
Japanese sked this hour Tue-Sat. 9395 is much better modulated,
Wavescan sked - is it no longer attributed to AWR? Adrian Peterson is
retired, and AWR HQ ignores it on own skeds. Also compare to 9955
where WRMI is as usual somewhat undermodulated, worse than 9395,
better than 9455 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9265V, June 8 at 0038, WINB carrier is wobbly, as obvious
tuned to 9264-USB; has been worse and has been better (Glenn Hauser,

** U S A. 12050, June 8 at 0048, no signal from WEWN Spanish - nor
have noticed it last few days nor in afternoon - gone again or
forever? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR0

UNIDENTIFIED [and non]. 7290-7306 & 7428-7444 both approx., and 16-kHz
wide, OTH radar clickery sounding the same in both spans, June 8 at
0035; hits AM signal on 7295, I think a broadcaster rather than hAM.
Per EiBi, at 0030-0100 only, it`s BBC via VATICAN in Dari; not
Violating Separation Of Church And State since UKQOGBANI is also a
theocracy: just ask King Charles! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
