** CHINA [non]. 9580, March 29 at 0115, CRI English at S9+10 via CUBA,
CCCCCCI at first turned out to be self-imposed QRM by voiceover
translation, not fading down completely the original language. Ex-6180
now clear for Brasil if they care to use it. Well, not completely, CRI
English southward from Kashgar is still on 6180 at 0000-0200, via EAST
TURKISTAN, land of ChiCom imperialist genocide and persecution of the
Uyghurs. Altho not stated, my previous report of CRI at 1500 on 11880
was also via CUBA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11880, March 29 at 2203, RHC not in French as expected at
shifted time to ``Africa`` but Spanish, music show // other mainstream
Spanish: 11850 JBM, 11760, 9650, 9535 and reactivated 15370, S9+25/30
and distorted. Something`s always wrong at RHC. However, by 2316,
11880 is properly in English, going from `This Week in Cuba` to
`Mailbag` with no sign of `DXers Unlimited` which used to occupy this

15230, at 2205 check March 28 is in Brazuguese, but distorted and
wobbly. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9700, March 29 at 0117, RHC English is gone again: I bet it`s
back to 49 meters --- Yes, there it is on reactivated 6165, S9+10/20,
which will be a QRM problem for 6159.93 WBCQ; -70 Hz offset won`t help
much; and still on // 6000. RHC should really stay on 31m thru the
summer for some frequency- and noise-level diversity, tsk2 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GUAM. As I have reported in detail to MWDX groups, KSDA SW site is
hosting a temporary antenna setup for KUAM 630, which has been off the
air since May 1, 2020; it will be at reduced power and under new
ownership and religious format. Matt Francis replies on the WOR iog:

``Hi Glenn, The assignee - Good News Broadcasting Corporation - is the
not-for-profit operator of JOY FM in Guam KSDA 91.9 FM and KORU 89.9
FM in Northern Marianas Islands. According to their website, they
assumed responsibility for the FM station sometime after 1992. It had
originally started operating from the AWR-Asia studios in Guam in
1991, but Good News took over following a decision by AWR to shift
away from local AM & FM broadcasting.

** KOREA SOUTH [non]. 11880, March 29 at 0112, KBS World Radio hour in
Spanish now here via Grimesland NC, replacing longtime relay via WHRI
9605, which is now vacant. S9+10 but not exactly solid here off the
side of the southward beam (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, March 28 at 2158, VOT IS prior to English for N
America, on reactivated A-21 frequency, ex-5960 in B-20 an hour later
--- and sure enough, with heavy RTTY QRM, which is NAU Puerto Rico.
This happens season after A-season and VOT is oblivious to it (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)
