** CUBA. 5025, June 19 at 0637, S9+35/45 of dead air from R. Rebelde.
Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba. The other side:

``The Other Face of Hunger in Cuba --- 'Hunger has two faces, but it
shows one and hides the other. Cubans today are racked by both at the
same time, subjugated by a government that deliberately starves its
own people.'
Roberto Álvarez Quiñones, Miami 18 Jun 2024 - 16:50 CEST

Yes, Castroism causes hunger with premeditation and perfidy, because
this scourge is not due to a war, or a natural catastrophe, but rather
to fact that a well-fed Raúl Castro and his rotund accomplices refuse
to liberate agriculture and restore the elemental freedoms to which
all the peoples of the world are entitled, for fear of losing the
power and dolce vita that they and their families enjoy...``

** OKLAHOMA. Re 92.7, OKC traffic report not // 92.5 KOMA: KOMA does
have a translator on 92.9 to analogize its HD2 called The Edge, per
WTFDA: ``K225BN relays:KOMA-HD2 92.9 OKLAHOMA CITY OK USA 0.2 0.2
267.7 267.7 35-32-51 97-29-30 188C ROCK 92.9 THE EDGE 139270`` --
could the 92.9 have been off-frequency? Not necessarily right on 92.7.
Or is there any way an HD2 of 92.5 might be audible somehow on an old
non-HD analog caradio tuned to the side? And whatever became of
subcarriers? (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 95.7 & 107.1, June 19 at 0139, 0346, 0430, 0519, 0627 UT
chex, Enid stations still dead air but showing static RDS of __KXLS__
and __KNID__; finally resumed modulating by 1452 check. I suspect long
delays in fixing such easy? problems are caused by no CE of their own,
rather having to call upon contract engineer from some other city;
evenmoreso the 93.9 KIMY case, with no local origination, merely a
satellite which cannot even be monitored OTA at HQ (Glenn Hauser,
Enid, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Wed June 19 at 2201, token English from SNR, now
again with cohostesses Amy Egan and Marilyn Quintana, S9+20/30 direct
and the other three detectable. It`s the tenth anniversary of
coronation of King Felipe after his disgraced father abdicated;
something about calls for dissolving the Balearic government; air
pollution is the second largest cause of death worldwide. 2209 feature
interview about babies stolen during the Franco regime (Glenn Hauser,

** TURKEY. 11785.009, June 19 at 2200, VOT English not off the air,
s/on pretending to be 1230 on 17620, S8/S9 direct but insufficient vs
S5/S7 noise level. 2232 tune-in via UTwente when measured, S9+40/50 VG
during song; 2234 multi-lingual ID filler reel; 2236 song; 2240
`The Middle East and Turkey`, written by some non-Turkish-named expert
on how ME is the world`s center of energy produxion; really?! 2246
song. 2249 ``always-by-your-side`` promo, song which is chopped off
the air at 2252.8* before any s/off announcement or IS. Something`s
always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

1623 into NH SDR, tsk4 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15150, June 19 at 0645, WMLK is back on and even modulating,
but JBA S7/S8 direct. Huge variations in strength depending on
nighttime MUF fluxuations (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1130 kHz, June 19 at 2041 UT, KLEY Wellington KS instead of
rock music, silly ballgame sportstalk, about golf, and it`s not net
but local, mentioning KLEY in passing. Format change or aberration?
Has managed to remain on air whenever checked since last outage (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)
