Hauser
** SAUDI ARABIA. 11935, March 18 at 1504, found it! S3/S6, the
horrible loud roarer, sounding just the same as on ex-11915 which
vanished a few days ago, ex-11820, ex-11860 where it was originally
and probably still is a failed attempt to carry Republic of Yemen
Radio. Still 11935 at 1658, S9+15 into UTwente -- but 1700 as heavy
QRM to VATICAN Radio in French as scheduled. If not allah, the RCC
god`ll get`em for that. 1836 check, again roar only, S9+10/15 UTwente.
2316 recheck *still* roaring, S8/S9 into UTwente. And *still2* at 0028
March 19: so on 24 hours??

Lots more victims as long as this stay on 11935. Aoki shows: VR at
1630-1730, 1940-2000; CNR5 China at 23-09. RFA Tibetan 12-13 & CNR
jamming; 11-12 Sunday R Joystick via Bulgaria. EiBi lax the last but
adds 1330-1630 R. Farda via Lampertheim = I heard nothing of that at
first tune-in. Next? Something`s always wrong at wRiyadh (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Mon Mar 18 at 2313, token English from SNR feature
today is interview about March 17 being Comic Book Day, in Spain, as
declared on July 11, 2022. Treated as if a serious subject! VG into
Maryland SDR as always.

AER has published an A24 sked showing 17885 repeatedly instead of
17855 as usual for NAm A-seasons, suspected typo/error. HFCC A24 still
shows 17855. AER shows the other three: 15360 Af, 15520 ME, 17715 SAm.
HFCC has no 15360 and includes several other alternatives (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 5960.002, Sunday March 17 at 2337, late tune-in
to VOT, S9+25/40 into UTwente, not off the air, with `Letterbox` in
progress, acknowledging report from Malaysia of a Farsi broadcast,
``out of time``, ``May God bless all of us``, yet time for some music
2342-2347 before playing `Lbox` outro. 2353 s/off for the 1330
broadcast only, 2353.6 IS playing only a sesquitime and off,
uncovering XJRTV Chinese, which had been audible as an undercurrent.
Since I missed the first part of `Lbox` I`m listening for the final
repeat after 0400 UT Monday March 18 on 6125 also to N America:

6125.016, further offset than usual, as UTwente and Maryland SDR agree
on that exactly; S9/+10 into Maryland, much stronger S9+20/35 into
UTwente. 0400 UT Monday March 18, news misread by the badax until
0414, then an analysis or commentary. 0419 `Lbox` starts. Host says he
is feeling very sad since one of his best friends, she died of cancer
yesterday. Also remarx he has no idea which other announcers are doing
which programs as he only does Lbox and sometimes the news. First
letter from England, very tiny handwriting he has trouble reading, so
goes slowly, reading all the program details in the report, irrelevant
now, on and on until 0426; next from Alan Holder, Isle of Wight, who
says winter there has been awful, always raining. Wants VOT to resume
citing headlines at end of transmissions; 1330 broadcast on 13635
suffers from Chinese jammer on 13640 vs Sound of Hope. 0432 next from
Mr Ng, Guangzhou, China, report on a Russian broadcast which
admittedly he does not understand. It was posted Dec 2 and just
arrived 3+ months later: please use email instead? VOT in 37
languages. Only issues postal QSLs, no `flags` = pennants?, stickers
or other goodies as used to 7/8 years ago before host started at VOT.
Transmission failure, off air at 0442*, back on during music at *0447.
0453 s/off still for the 1330 only, IS a sesquitime before chopoff.
Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [non]. 5960, March 18 at 2303, no signal of VOT into
UTwente; *2307 Xinjiang RTV, EAST TURKISTAN chops on at variable
opening, remains alone. 9610, VOT not there either but presumed
Mongolian much weaker from CNR Beijing. 5960, still nothing but
Chinese at 2336. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 17680, back on weekday frequency Mon March 18, Ukrainian aim
of VOA/Martinoticias, but dumping off air and back on around 1851,
1856, 1857; many more breaks about once a minute around 1900-1910, VG
into UTwente when on. Something`s gone wrong at Grimesland. Maybe a
spare transmitter kept closed for good reason. Jerry Lenamon says
Greenville has some Cold-War-era rhombix and curtains at 45 degrees
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2234 monitoring: Also confirmed
Sunday March 17 at 2103 on IRRS via AM Italia, 1322.997 kHz, S9+10
into UTwente across Europe. I should have rechecked before 2129
whether it were intact this week. Also confirmed at 2109 during the
2100 WRN webcast for Europe.

Also confirmed Sunday March 17 at 2230.5 on SW Radio, Germany,
3975.002, S9+10 into UTwente across Europe.

Also confirmed UT Monday March 18 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, S7/S8 into
offbeam Maryland SDR with continuous noise in background - not the
first-14-seconds blast. Better into Durango2 SDR, S9+10/15, not much
noise.

NOT confirmed UT Monday March 18 at 0300 on Area 51 via WBCQ,
6159.931, S7/S8 into Maryland SDR: instead continuous miscellaneous
music with no announcements until switch to TOMBS at 0400. What
happened, Larry?

Missed checking Monday March 18 at 0930 on 6160 and 2030 on 3975 from
SW Radio, Germany; anyone hear them? Next:

** U S A. Squealing on WWCRs: 12160, March 18 at 1512, S9+40 with
squeal; likewise at 1518 on 9980. Not loud but noticeable. 12160 also
accompanied by seeming spurblobs circa 12146, 12153, 12168, 12177

Hauser
** CUBA. 4765 & 5025, March 17 at 0237, both missing, no Progress and
no Rebellion. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, Sunday March 17 at 1538, RHC only S3/S5 and JBM in
Spanish into Maryland SDR, while 11760 is S4/S6. Before 1500 I was not
hearing either direct, boding ill for Esperanto, but I forgot to try
for that between 1500 and 1530 which should be its DST timing. By
1551, 11760 off and 15140 S5 JBM Spanish. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY. 9670, March 17 at 0618, song at S2/S3, surely Channel 292,
nothing else listed 24h except Vietnam radio war at 1230-1300. Date by
date program sked shows nothing specific most of the time, including
now:
https://www.channel292.de/schedule-9670-khz/
Seldom do I get more than a JBA carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALI. 5995, March 17 at 0606, music JBA vs my high noise level, so
ORTM reactivated without a blob; had been reported March 16 around
2339 by HF Undergrounders via Ron Howard. Wolfgang Bueschel reports
day frequency 9635 also active (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925 USB, March 17 at 0226, hard rock. R75 Noise
Blanker very much needed and helps a lot. Some reports here as Leeroy,
per fuzzy SSTV; went off at 0234:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,127151.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6970 USB, March 17 at 0227, soft rock. Many logs
here as Solar Federation Radio:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,127152.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 90.1, KUCO: I thought I heard them mention a .org
website, instead of the usual kucofm.com So this explains why the old
site was inaccessible on some browsers: https://classicalkuco.org is
the new URL now, tho the contents are much like the old one including
secrecy about what`s scheduled 12-6 am CDT Saturdays. But if you enter
the old URL on Edge it converts to the new one (Glenn Hauser, Enid,
WOR)

** PERU. 4810 & 4820, March 17 at 0238, JBA carriers from these two
but not 4775. Later at night there`s only 4810 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 11745, March 17 at 0217, Qur`an at S2/S3, no doubt
the `AFRTS` for forces in Yemen, `Al Azm`, the only thing on 11745,
24h per EiBi & Aoki, site Jeddah. Must be about time for breakfast
stuffage among Ramadaners. Violating Separation of Mosque and State,
haha (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 11915, around 22 UT March 16, I noticed no horrible
noiseblob from defective transmitter for Rep. of Yemen Radio; is it
gone again, or moved? Also absent March 17 at 1542 into UTwente, nor
on ex-11820, ex-11860. Could be somewhere else on 25 mb if checked
thoroly, outstanding sorethumbly (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 17865, Sunday March 17 at 1438, S7/S9 Spanish talk about
Ukraine, the R. Martí weekend-only from 1300 broadcast. M-F should be
back on 17680 instead at 17-21. What`s the other Martí playing at 1442
on 11930? ``We Will Rock You``, off-topic? 11860 & 13820 not on yet
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2234 monitoring: confirmed UT
Sunday March 17 at 0000 on WRMI 9955, S7/S9 into Bonaire; S9+20
direct, no jamming audible.

Also confirmed UT Sunday March 17 at 0353, about 2 minutes into so
nominal 0315v started about 0351 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO, S9+20 into
nearby SDR. Late-running Houston Hamsat net playback ran until 0339
ARRL news, so that lasted only 12 minutes. WOR has sometimes appeared
early so need to start checking by 0230. Next:

2100 UT Sunday IRRS 1323-Italy
2230 UT Sunday SW Radio, Germany 3975
0030 UT Monday WRMI 7780 to SW

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JJBBA MW carrier search, March 17 at
0233: nothing but 711 & 891 vs the high noise level, surely Western
Sahara and Algeria. At 0609, only 711 and 882; I suppose 25 kW COPE
Tenerife, Canarias most likely on 882 vs a 10 kW in Wales (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

Hauser
** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RC USB, March 16 at 2211, LRA36 is on, VG
S9+10 into Argentine SDR, YL with historical info mixing bits of harp?
music. By 2340 hitting S9+40 with lots of noise, self-imposed? Or by
the SDR, otherwise only S7. Expected to stop by 2400 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CUBA [non]. R. Martí logs are normally filed thus, but also now
could just as well be UKRAINE [non], so I am just keeping them under U
S A

** GERMANY [non]. 15195, March 16 at 1532, S7/S9 of HoA music: or not
quite since EiBi shows this is DW in Hausa via FRANCE for Nigeria on
Saturdays only at 1425-1630, i.e. for stupid ballgames, but none right
now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALI. 5995, March 16 at 0644, still noise blob, no program audio
from presumed ORTM. Has anyone heard same or anything at all, on day
frequency 9635? At 1640 no signal into UTwente. Nominal span was
08-18, then back to 5995. Also on 9635 meanwhile: Vietnam, CNR1
jamming, Sound of Hope (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MARTINIQUE. 28444 USB, March 16 at 2151, FM5WS, quick DX pro-forma
contacts, French accent: ``FM5WS Martinique flag Martinique, Jean
"John" BAILLARD, Ducos 97224, Martinique`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 90.1, Sat Mar 16 at 1100 UT, KUCO going from first to
second hour of `Beyond the Barrier` ambient music, so in DST season
it`s at 10-12 UT, as well as 05-07 UT, the overnight Sat programs
still secret, not accounted for on program sked
https://www.kucofm.com/program-grid/ via Firefox & Chrome inaccessible
at 1650 March 16 but accessible via Edge, while the webcast via
streamguys.com is playing fine during cinematic `Reel Music`, 1700 Met
Opera `Turandot` (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SUDAN SOUTH [non]. 15550, Sat March 16 at 1536, similar-sounding
signal to 15565 Vatican in Amharic, but this is weaker S8/S9; R.
Tamazuj in SSUD Arabic via MADAGASCAR, at 1500-1600, per EiBi
including English Tue & Fri 1511-1530 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960.005, Sat March 16 at 2259, VOT comes on just in time
for 2300 English sign-on for the 1330 broadcast only, mixing with
timesignal from XJRTV understation on earlier than usual *2311v.
S9+40/45 into UTwente which displays a smidgin below 5960.000 which
must have been XJ, as above +5v Hz once I refresh it. News first and
mostly about Gaza. 2310.5 `The Energy Agenda` on T`s strategic
location for natural gas pipelines. 2318 song. 2327 `T`s Geomarked
[sic] Products`, recipe for a dessert made with cheese, sherbet/syrup,
temp 350 C -- really?! = 662 F. 2329 song, 2332 another song. 2337
another2 song... If it runover past 2400 that will be in my next
report (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 17865, Sat March 16 at 1501, as expected, R. Martí is now
here as sked Sat & Sun instead of 17680 at 17-21 M-F; only S6/S8
direct, not blasting in like 17680, but propagation today is degraded,
10m is even dead and/or the MUF has not built up yet, and/or dependent
on sporadic E between NC and OK. 1525 recheck, outro VOA Editorial,
Martinoticias contact info, 1526 `Abriendo Espacios` women`s program
but focus on Ukraine. Now it`s S9/+10 direct. At 1544 recheck it`s
off! But cuts back on and off again during Ukrainian song. At 1552
finally tuning via UTwente: off, but back on at *1557, S9+15/20. Left
running in background, no more breeaks perceived. 1642 Ukrainian song
again. 1700 dead air and off 1701*. Indeed not on 17680 after 1700
since this is not M-F. One must wonder why VOA itself and/or RFE/RL
have not re-started SW broacasts in Ukrainian/Russian for a rather
larger audience.

Follow-ups: Richard Langley says the date 17680 ran past 2100 was
March 14; Wolfgang Bueschel says the reason Biblis or Lampertheim are
not used for this is high cost of electricity in Germany (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2234 monitoring: confirmed UT
Saturday March 16 at 0130 on WRMI 5850, S7/S9 into Maryland SDR, vs
continuous roar noise; even worse at Maine SDR atop us. Yet into
Missouri SDR S9+30 without roar, and also OK direct, as it`s 315
degrees beamed right at us. The further east, the more the roar,
really ruining WRMI on that frequency. Is it some legit ute or
``jamming``??

Also confirmed UT Saturday March 16 at 0400 sharp, ex-0500, on WTWW
5085, S9+20/40 into Missouri SDR, and VG direct, appended to `Ancient
Word Radio` -- not World as sometimes typoed, and not to be confused
with another AWR; bit of music after at 0429 and off.

Also confirmed Saturday March 16 at 1554 the 1530 on SW Radio, Grmany,
6160.002, S9+5/15 into UTwente. WBCQ/TOMBS not a problem!

Also confirmed Saturday March 16 at 1725 the still 1700 on WRN North
American webcast, same UT despite imposition of DST over here. It`s //
their Af/As/Pac service where DST is irrelevant; so WRN makes the
change to 1600 etc., for equally irrelevant BST as of March 31.

Also confirmed Saturday March 16 at 1845 the 1830 on SW Radio,
Germany, 3975.002, S9+10 into UTwente.

Confirmed Saturday March 16 at 1930 on WRMI webcast-only as expected
ex-2030; and not on 15770. That is, playing on my Winamp as saved
link:
http://wrmi.listen.creek.fm/stream

While exactly the same link http://wrmi.listen.creek.fm/stream
accessed more directly is carrying Polish Radio presumably from WRN.
Huh? After 2000 they continue to be different, one with La Rosa de
Tokio, the other with more Polish Radio. O, the one with PR had been
paused, so not really `live` playing.

Confirmed Saturday March 16 from 1946 the 1930v on WA0RCR, 1860 AM,
MO, delayed following ARNL, VG groundwave into nearby SDR. Next:

0000 UT Sunday WRMI 9955 to SSE [also web-, phonecast; jammed?] [ex-0100]

** VATICAN. 15565, March 16 at 1534, S9+20/30 is the SSOB except for
15825 WWCR with sporadic E boost. VR in Amharic to Ethiopia at
1530-1600, also on // 13830 with keyword ``Catholic``. Standard remark
about SMG backward signals (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11741 & 11790 & 11839 approx., March 16 at 1540,
same-sounding spur?blobs. Note they are 49 Hz apart, as if
symmetrically out of 11790, but nothing sked there now. BTW, 11760 RHC
is off (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ARGENTINA. 28490 USB, March 15 at 2210, LU8YE calling CQDX, CQ10.
VG signal. QRZ.com: ``LU8YE Argentina flag Argentina, RADIO CLUB DE
LOS ANDES, LOS PEHUENES 1 Y LAS RETAMAS, SAN MARTIN DE LOS ANDES -
PATAGONIA, NQ 8370, Argentina --- The Radio Club de los Andes, located

Park with superb natural surroundings, offers big lakes and clear
water rivers. It is a beautiful tourist place, we invite you to visit

** COLOMBIA. 28450 USB, March 15 at 2207, HJ3ESF, ``Munir, north of
Bogotá`` working a VE1 in NS, calling CQDX, VG signal. QRZ.com:
``HJ3ESF Colombia flag Colombia, Munir Saab, 20976 Sheridan St,
Fortlauderdale, FL 33332, USA`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 11514.9, March 15 at 1635, JBA carrier into Missouri
remote, presumed pirate Hikari FM in Sonora or Arizona. So weak that
has trouble synchlocking onto it, but audible in USB if tuned to
11514.5. Also noticed direct at various times not always logged. Is
anyone getting enough signal for modulation monitoring? (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Fri Mar 15 at 2300, token English from SNR, VG
S9+30/40 into Maryland SDR. 2308 feature after news is pushback
against trend to eliminate AM radios, let alone SW, from cars, several
interviews. 2323 about celebrations in Spain for St. Patrick`s Day,
with some nice Irish music bits (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [non]. 5960, March 15 at 2300, NO signal from VOT into

chops on 5960.000 mid-word in Chinese, its usual start time, breaking
squelch. No VOT for rest of hour. Something`s always erroneous at

** U S A. 28217.7 CW, March 15 at 2204, EEEEE DE WA1LAD/B --- Nothing
about a beacon on his qrz.com page: ``WA1LAD USA flag USA, GILBERT D
"Gil" WOODSIDE, III, 285 3rd Ave, Warwick, RI 02888, USA``

I keep trying WI5V website first for beacon lookups, but has been
inaccessible for at least two weeks. Anyone know what happened, or is
there some other new site being updated? At QRZ.com nothing new, in
fact his old announcement about taking over from WJ5O:

``WI5V USA flag USA, DENNIS C STICE, 5120 SW 125TH PL, OKLAHOMA CITY,
OK 73173 --- On January 20, 2018 I will assume the duties as the IARU
Region 2 Beacon Coordinator, as Bill, WJ5O, will be resigning from
this role. Bill has faithfully administered the duties and has been a
tremendous asset to so many Beaconers during his 10 year stint as IARU
Region 2 Beacon Coordinator. Now that I am retired from teaching grad
school and rehabilitation counseling, I will now have more time to
devote to my new role. The Official Beacon List can be seen here on my
website: wi5v.net `` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 17680, Fri March 15 at 1657 tune-in via UTwente, open
carrier S9+10/20, 1700 R. Martí ID, nothing about VOA, and right into
program `La Libertad es una Librería` discussing Ukrainian poetry in
translation. That means bookshop, not library.

Before 1700 still no signal on 17865. Peter Hanson checked IBB
monitoring in ``Kiev`` showing that 17865 at 13-17 is for Sat & Sun,
17680 at 17-21 for M-F only. So on March 16 we should find it earlier
on the other frequency instead. Also, on March 15, Richard Langley
reported 17680 had run past 2100 on some unspecified date:

``An update: Listened to all of my 10-minute clips. There seemed to be
a VOA editorial near the top of the hour each hour (except the first
hour). At about 2104 UT, there was a version of the Ukrainian
patriotic song "Ой у лузі червона калина, romanized: Oi u luzi
chervona kalyna" (something like: "Oh, there is a red viburnum in the
meadow") in SPANISH! Most of us have heard various versions of this
song since the start of the war but perhaps not in Spanish. When
checking on the spelling of the song, I came across this version:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZkMKYPWWmSY
Very nice, particularly the portions with brass instruments. The hour
continued past 2106 when my recording ended. So not signing off at
2100 according to the supposed schedule. Will extend my recordings to
see if there is a consistent s/off time. Slava Ukraini! -- Richard
Langley``

Volodya Salmaniw, BC, replied, ``Thanks for sharing, Richard! The song
was banned in the Soviet Union. As I recall, it was written during the
first world war but became popular with the Ukrainian Insurgent Army
during and after World War 2. As many Ukrainian songs are, it's
cryptic, describing how Ukraine, although broken, will arise again. We
learned it as children growing up in the diaspora. Always gives me a
lump in my throat. Walt``

WORLD OF RADIO HITLIST update

Hi Glenn, My latest Hitlist update.
https://www.w4uvh.net/hitlist.htm

1) USA - WEWN: Updated label for link to frequencies as it now links
to current A-24 schedule [as expected, 12050 Spanish, 15610 English
which has been missing lately -gh]

2) USA - WINB: Updated links to frequency/programme pages

3) USA - WRMI: Updated links to WRMI frequency and programme page for
A-24 season

The next update is scheduled for late March. Best wishes and 73, Alan
Roe

** CUBA. 15140, March 14 at 1900, no signal from RHC English at summer
timing, only heard once so far, nor 11760. The Other Side:

``READ TODAY THE CUBA OF TOMORROW March 8, 2024 OPINION
Raúl Castro: the general in his defeat

Erratic policies, produced by fear and devoid of objectives, have been
the hallmarks of this Raulian era, the perfect culmination of a regime
that is close to disappearing and that no one will miss.

Rafaela Cruz, La Habana 07 Mar 2024 - 20:12 CET

If pathological cowardice is mixed with intellectual vacuity, the
result is a Raúl Castro. This general with more stars on his
epaulettes than shots fired in combat - his command on the Second
Front was a kind of camping trip - would border on the pathetic if it
were not for the fact that while he basks in Cuba's best cays, the
people are scraping and struggling just to eat.

His late brother — the main character responsible for the country's
ruin— although racking up a string of disasters sufficient to fill an
encyclopedia of failure, at least had the ability to survive by
prostituting himself politically, monetizing his virulent ideology,
and exporting his totalitarian method. But Raúl cannot even manage
that...

** CUBA [non]. R. Martí: see U S A 17680

** HAWAII [and non]. 10000-10004 approx., March 14 at 0636, noise
blast QRMs WWVH, must tune for it on LSB. The Standard Frequencies are
supposed to be protected (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALI. 5995, March 14 at 0639, still nothing but noise blob,
presumably out of defective ORTM transmitter (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD
OF RADIO 2234)

** U S A. 17865, March 14 from 1600, NO signal from Grimesland for R.
Martí. Will the 13-17 UT segment ever appear?

17680 open carrier is already on at 1653, S9+10/15 into UTwente. Very
rough start! 1700 still dead air. 1701 VOA WDC s/on with YDD - again
at 1702! after DA pause, at 1703 VOA WDC s/OFF. 1704 different s/off
with contact info for programming. 1704.5 VOA ID with YDD. 1705
disclaimer, no programming available, so music fill. Disclaimer
blaming on propagation conditions. Propagation OK, so resuming
programming. 1706 regrets there is no programming. 1707 VOA beginning
AFRTS! VOA finishing AFRTS. Dead air.

1708, finally R. Martí ID, and into program `La Libertad es Libro`,
featuring Ukrainian poetry in translation, but mostly discussing it.
1800 no ToH break. 1803 VOA Editorial: anti-Putin. 1808 back to
MartiNoticias. 1809 `Abriendo Espacios` women`s show. 1858 another VOA
Editorial. 2000 recheck, VOA editorial about Ukraine, again (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2234)

Comments from the WOR iog: Kai Ludwig, Germany: ``Nothing in HFCC so
far, and no publicity at the usual places either. "Abriendo Espacios"
as programme name is too generic for a web search without further
digging.

Is this Martí or rather VOA? Perhaps some kind of cooperation, but
still one could ask if this is a playout from Miami or Washington.

And why not from either Biblis or Lampertheim, which would provide
significantly better reception? They keep churning out 5.7 million
dollar each year for these meanwhile badly underused facilities. I
think I asked already some kind ago what kind of strategy this is, or
if they have any beyond "we always did it this way" at all.

So no one in Russia and Ukraine will listen to shortwave anymore, but
mercenaries from Cuba will? To a sub-standard signal, delivered over
almost 9,000 kilometres? Made my day. Kai Ludwig``

Bill Tilford, IN: ``It wasn't all that far back that Martí was
broadcasting DRM to Cuba. They are never given an Oinker Award but
have been a worthy candidate for years - an operation in search of a
mission. Personally, I think the most plausible explanation for their
existence is a place to hide part of the black budget. Just a theory,
but a good one methinks``

Tony Pavick, BC: ``I have a slightly noisy but fairly understandable
signal. Discussion with a university professor talking about writing a
diary about Ukraine to tell the world about what is happening.

This is a really fascinating undertaking. While some may question its
effectiveness, the thought of targeting deployed Cuban troops with R
Marti in some form where it won't be jammed as at home is intriguing.
In a sense this is a bit like Radio Atlántico del Sur and Argentina's
Liberty. Tony``

** U S A. 9395 // 9455, March 14 at 0633 Korean, 0634 into English,
i.e. Supreme Master TV. Now at this hour and a few other WRMI blox
sked on two System J frequencies instead of just one. Its
unpredictable multi-lingual format with no translation captions
possible makes it quite a turnoff for radio listeners; besides its
cultish devotion to the SM, however laudable its environmental outlook
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7260, March 14 at 0638, R. Vanuatu is JBA vs noise level,
totalling S9+20; at least confirming it`s on as you never know when it
will vanish. Ron Howard logs it in detail most nights (Glenn Hauser,
