** CUBA. 11880, April 2 at 2216, RHC is on in French, S8-S9 but
undermodulated. Instead of dumping off the air before Brazuguese at
2230, it manages to stay on, not // 15230 which was already in PP at
2219 check, S9; sounds like same speaker, subject, maybe
non-synchronized playouts. Something`s always wrong at RHC: hereafter:
SAWA.

Today 11880 remains even past 2300 switching to English which has been
missing most of the days so far in A-21. At least we now know it is
still supposed to be on 11880. And should stop at 2400* but keeps
going in Kriyol or French, staying on until about 0015*. SAWA.

But English no longer // on 5040: at 2300 it starts frequency list in
Spanish, 13740, 11760 --- and then it dumps off the air. Just as well,
because 13740 is wrong anyway, nothing there; no Cuban on 13 MHz
except Chinese music in non-Portuguese on 13650. SAWA.

What else from RHC? 15370 at 2219 in Spanish, S9+35 but lofi with hum;
15230 S9 in Brazuguese; nothing on 15730. 15370 is off by 2303, while
15230 has switched to Spanish now // distorted 11760 and 11670. SAWA.

11850, April 2 at 2222, RHC Spanish is JBM, S7-S9 along with parasite
JBA carrier on 11840, the twin on 11860 buried in Cuban jamming
against no Martí. At 2303, 11850 is suptorted, mod spikes only. SAWA.

15730, April 2 at 2239, now this one is on, S9+20, but as usual
distorted modulation only at peaks; wiggle that patchcord! I think
it`s in Kriyol. At 2300 still same breakup, now in real French? SAWA.

6165 English does not come on April 3 at 0000 as nominally has been; I
keep checking along with AAAWWW on 6159.930v WBCQ, which remains clear
of ACI. Not until 0034 do I check 6145, and by golly, now RHC English
is there instead of 6165! Maybe they took my advice, which of course I
would never send to them directly. SAWA.

11850, April 3 at 0133 I return to receiver I had left tuned here, and
guess what? Now this is in English from RHC! S9+10 with good
modulation unlike earlier; but is it a mistake, and for how long? Now
we have 3 x EE, // 6000 & 6145. SAWA.

6060, April 3 at 0252, RHC Spanish is S9+20/30 but still with the big
buzz. SAWA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GUAM. 12040, Fri April 2 at 2225, S Asian music, VP S3-S6, then
seeming English; no, KSDA sked in English Sun/Tue/Thu 2200-2230,
including `Wavescan` on Sundays; elsedays in SuNdanese. Would like to
confirm these days once and for all, as I have feared they could be
confused about local days vs UT days, i.e. English M/W/F mornings over
there (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6960-AM, UT Sat April 3 at 0200-0204+, rock music
S9/+10, probably Ball Smacker Radio which is scheduled Friday nights
from 9 pm ET = 0100. I check out another pirate on 6930, then back to
this at 0217 when music is quiet, some deep fades; 0225 YL, ``from
some wires strung up in the trees, Ball Smacker Radio``, and tenpins
SFX. More rock music I don`t recognize. 0233 plug for their new
website; off before 0245 recheck. Many more logs here:

Keyword for song titles tonight was: ``fool``. After 0315 there was a
repeat reported on 4030-USB (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6930-USB, April 3 at 0204, pirate music S9, louder
than BSR on AM 6960; 0206 unreadable announcement with organ
background. 0215 ``Desert Rat here, comments appreciated to
twodogradio@??.com and off 0216*. Many more reports from 0045:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Friday April 2 at 2214, final token English semihour
of the week from REE is songs hosted by Justin Coe, but not on this
frequency to North America, still AWOL. Other three are audible: 15520
good S5-S8; 11940 S9+5/15; even 11685 is fair S5-S7 and no RTTY,
better than the nothing we get (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, April 2 at 2213, checking direct VOT English to us:
no RTTY and S6-S9 but undermodulated, hardly readable. For comparison,
15520 Spain is axually weaker on meter, S5-S8 but good,
well-modulated. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 6159.924 V to 6159.930, UT Sat April 3 from 0000, WBCQ
`AAAWWW` via KB0FX SDR in MO, offset frequency readout in SAM mode.
Surprisingly clear of RHC ACI since it has jumped from 6165 to 6145
--- see CUBA. I half listen; first quiz question, what is a BFO? Soon
answered by an e-mailer or caller. It`s cold in Fla, 50 degrees, yet
the wife Allan adores is scantily-clad as he puts his hand somewhere
on her. Was there nothing political??

Major subject, on and on and on, is standard shifts and clutches,
wondering if young people would even know how to drive such cars. 0151
reads part of Radio World article about FCC maybe enforcing PIRATE act
from April 26 with big fines --- but he misses the point as already
discussed in NASWA and WOR groups, that by definition, this applies to
AM & FM bands only, nothing about SW! Yet AW takes the opportunity to
encourage would-be pirates to buy time on WBCQ instead. Squeezes in a
few pirate names and frequencies from new issue of Free Radio Weekly
just published; prayer and ID. 0100-0101 dead air on this transmitter
before Hal Turner starts. I never did check 7490v this week, direct or
remotedly, nor WBCQ webcasts, but AW said that the 7490 stream server
has been maxing out.

I keep hoping he will have some news about his attempt to purchase
WHRI, which appears to have closed down. Nothing significant either in
his recent twits. Here`s the version of John Carver, who was paying
more attention:

``Tonight's show started on time on both 6160 and 7490 with 7490
having the better signal this evening. Opening question was, what is a
BFO? Angela is scantily dressed this evening according to Allan. The
opening question is answered by someone named Scott and Allan proceeds
to describe a BFO for the audience. Then he asks how many young people
were able to drive a car with a manual transmission and quickly after
that asks how many would know how to double clutch. A short tale of
Angela driving his antique cars which morphed into a discussion in
general about antique cars.

Phone call at 0028 from a woman that has been enjoying the talk of
Angela driving the antiques and she admits that she owns and drives an
older car, just one not as old as Allan's. Angela started to give us a
brief Angela's Angle but was interrupted by a phone call at 0043 from
Mr. Transistor Norm who talks about old cars and motorcycles. Allan
then reads a short piece about the larger fines for pirate radio
operators and ends with a plea for the pirate operators to buy time on
WBCQ.

Into emails at 0054 and a reading of the newest Free Radio Weekly.
Closing prayer at 0058 and off the air at 0100 and once again into
dead air. Only one political reference this evening when Allan lost
his train of thought and stated that he'd had a Biden moment. John,
Mid-North Indiana.``

6159.93, recheck 0250 after Hal Turner hour, WBCQ still on with rock
music. That would be `Rock Wave` originating on WBCQ-FM 94.7 a.k.a.
Kixx-FM. But off the air after 0300 as I have also noticed previous
nights, so `Late Nite in the Heartland` far-right talk show is gone
tho still on the 6160 sked as 0300-0500 Tue-Sat. Its website still
claims to be on 7490
https://www.jeffreydaugherty.com/about-us
but that`s off the air too at 0340 April 3 check. O, the 7490 sked
shows it as 0300-0330 only UT Tue-Sat; so need to recheck whether that
fragment survive. At 02-03 Brother Scare has been appearing on 7490
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1319.717, April 3 at 0145 UT, KLWN ID on 1320.00 with het
from here by the AM/SSB pitch match method, so still WCOG Greensboro
NC. No het tonight vs 1540.00 KXEL (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1081.3, April 3 at 0151 UT, het against 1080 KRLD.
Nothing this far off in mwoffsets; possibly local device, but the MW
band is otherwise `clean` tonight, no TA carriers either (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)
