** CUBA. 11950, July 15 at 2201, RHC on early, undermodulated S9+10,
seems like live speech by some Commie, apparently a `Mesa Redonda`
special event an hour earlier than usual, since not // 11760 et al.,
and 6000 JBA also seems same as 11950. Something`s always wrong at RHC

** CUBA. 7379.241, July 15 at 2222, RHC French auto-knocked way off
frequency from 7380, S9+10; as happens sporadically here or below
15370 or 13740, presumably same transmitter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** NIGERIA. 7254.94, July 15 at 0551, VON with a ballad in English,
``I`m not afraid ---`` something, segment repeating at 0554, 0556
after pauses; 0557.5 cut to usual drumming and flutish IS, S9+20/30

** OKLAHOMA. 1230, July 15 at 0038 UT, Oh2, WBBZ Ponca City must
be off again, no strong signal this long before sunset; or is that its
carrier now with growing graveyard skywave? Yes, it is! Legal ID at
ToH 0100 then back to dead air.

Meanwhile I have been walking around the block with the PL-880 on this
frequency trying to track source of high line noise level. It`s
slightly CCW from N/S with a sharp null (which should be occupied by
WBBZ), and little change from different sides, signifying it`s
radiating from some distance away.

1230, WBBZ is back in business, S9+20 by 2225 check July 15 with rock
music, ``Sunny 1230`` slogan. At least not ``Sunny 104.7`` this time
