** AUSTRIA. 7385, April 2 at 0241, S Asian choral music, 0244 talk
S7-S9, i.e.. AWR as scheduled via Moosbrunn in Punjabi. Off after 0300
--- when WHRI is registered to start but no sign of it, missing here
like from 5920, see ZAMBIA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 2749-USB, April 2 at 0306 UT, French robotic YL with marine
weather for vendredi, etc., S9 but so is the noise level.
DXinfocentre.com shows the latest starter was at 0240, VCS-21, Halifax
NS, 1500 watts but not as bilingual. Nothing on NL channel 2598 now
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15370, April 1 at 1910 and 1930 chex, big open carrier, no
doubt RHC warming up as has previously been heard later in afternoon.
I`m thinking, too bad English on 15140 is not on better signal 15370.
In fact, it was on March 28, per Harold Frodge: ``15370 Radio Habana
Cuba; 1927, 3/28; “The Mailbag Show” to 1930:24 w/letter from Phil
Dampier. S9+ peaks w/strong whistle QRM. (Frodge-MI)``

However I see that Aoki shows the only timespan of RHC on 15370 as
1600-1900, in which case it would have been running late rather than
early. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11880, April 1 at 2220, RHC in French as scheduled, but off
at 2227, so no Portuguese at 2230, nor English at 2300, after which I
survey all bands 5-15 MHz without finding it anywhere else. But:

15730, April 1 at 2322, RHC S9+20 with Kriyol modulation trying to
break thru when peaking, barely recognizable. Something`s very wrong
at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, April 2 at 0225, S9+10, RHC humbuzz with undermod
Spanish; by 0342 recheck S9 but no buzz, still undermod. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9790, April 2 at 0337, no CRI English as always relayed in
A-seasons and in current HFCC. Good thing I flagged it as unconfirmed
on WOR 2080, as when I try to, cannot; nor find it anywhere else on
6-11 MHz bands. Maybe just another transmitter temporarily out of
order? Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6000, April 2 at 0342, this RHC English frequency is off; but
fortunately the other one is on and VG, 6165. Something`s always wrong
at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4011-USB, UT Fri April 2 at 0215, JBA MARS net, think I
heard an AAR9-- call. They have just as much trouble hearing each
other, repeatedly trying to exchange phone numbers, which should
provide better contact! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2079 monitoring: Harold Frodge,
Midland MI, reports to the WOR iog: ``7780 WRMI Radio Miami Int’l
(presumed); 2107, 3/31; Hauser’s World of Radio; poor at QRN level; //
7490.0 WBCQ(p) a tad better, but not much (Frodge-MI)``

First broadcasts of 2080 confirmed just minutes after completed: UT
Friday April 2 at 0130 on WRMIs: 5850 VG here; 7780 VG S9+5/15 to
UTwente SDR in Holland (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5885 & 5895, April 2 at 0235, huge buzz peaking on the
sidebands of S9+30/40 WWCR-4 during E. C. Fulcher Truth House
Ministries, SOP for that program. An hour later during Kelly Lawson
Worship no buzz but much weaker. BTW, WWCR pdf program schedule now
dated March 14 as if to take into account DST -- yet still showing 6
hour difference from UT! The Central times are correct. How many years
has WWCR been going, and they still don`t have their basic act
together (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1319.718, April 2 at 0252 UT, tell-tale het as previously
IDed from way off-frequency WCOG, Greensboro NC. This has been going
on over two weeks; how much longer? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ZAMBIA [and non]. 5915, April 2 at 0227, African singing and heavy
drumming past 0233, wake up! at 4:30 AM? S6-S9, and 0336 JBA; no doubt
ZNBC Radio 1, no longer squeezed by bigsig ACI from 5910 Romania or
Cuba and 5920 WHRI, the latter still scheduled but absent. Is it
closing down? Check other frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
