THE BIG THREE FREQUENCY REFERENCES

** CUBA. 5025, April 4 at 0536, Radio Rebelde music is suptorted, as
it has been all evening, as often the case. Something`s always wrong
at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6145 & 6000, April 4 at 0534, RHC English equally weak and
just barely modulated, while // 6060 & 6100 are both much stronger and
well-modulated. 5040, last of The Cuban Five, is strong & loud enough,
but with constant squeal and mush.

Also, a JBA carrier on 6230, probably leapfrog mixing product of 6060
over 6145 another 85 kHz beyond. Something`s always wrong at RHC. BTW,
I am assuming that there is no longer an English hour at 07-08, tho
not awake that late to check; with only a fraxion of the Five
remaining on at 06-07 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, April 4 at 1526, RHC S9+10 but horribly distorted, as
this transmitter has been for many weeks now; have they no shame; or
no way to fix it? Or substitute another unit? Plenty are available
mid-day. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 255-MCW kHz, April 4 at 0549 UT, no signal from SW, the
25-watt NDB at nearby Stillwater, which had been one of our most
constantly reliable, day and night by groundwave. 341 kHz, EI, Enid
also remains gone. Ditto at midday 1800 UT; only ones audible are 350
RG OKC, which is sometimes missing; and much stronger 515 PN Ponca
City which is never missing but sometimes chripy (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** SAIPAN [and non]. 11985.037, April 4 at 1531, JBA talk in Korean,
off frequency, immediately suggesting it`s USAGM Saipan, one of its
most off-capable sites, along with São Tomé. HFCC confirms Saipan,
A-20 now running 1500-1900.

9910.036, April 4 at 1537, another off-frequency Korean, bet it`s the
same. Not in HFCC of March 30 but yes in Aoki/NDXC April 4 as another
RFA Korean from Agignan Point MRA = SAIPAN at 1500-1700.

Altho transmitters might drift, you`d think there would be a simple
vernier ``fine tuning`` to adjust frequencies, if anyone cared.
Something`s always shifty at Saipan. One more:

11675, April 4 at 1534, Chinese with fast SAH from second transmitter.
Yep, Aoki has this as RFA SAIPAN, this hour only, *jammed by CNR1; and
we certainly know which one is askew without trying to separate them.
Next hour 16-17 in Uyghur for the brainwashed switches to Tinian,
probably not so off, or at least differing (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 9955, April 4 at 1536, WRMI dead air but it`s
just a pause in TOMBS, as this frequency has been extended on
Saturdays only until 1600 in order to diffuse the *live* Overcomer
Sabbath services, also running 1400-1600 on *nine* other WRMI
transmitters! Is he still inviting girls onstage to grope them? Hard
to tell on the radio, but BS may be confident he`s staying out of jail
as charges against him have still not been resolved. Sabbath? as if a
deity really cared which day it`s worshiped, weeks being totally
artificial human constructs; just as gods are (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 8764-USB, April 4 at 1540, robot male voice with marine
weather, nothing but seas in feet, winds in knots, forecasts thru next
Wednesday. This is a USCG frequency shared among NMO Honolulu, NMC
Point Reyes and NMN Chesapeake VA on a complex schedule, NMN starting
at 1530 per EiBi. Somewhat distorted but has been worse, poor S5-S8
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2028 monitoring: unavoidably awake
Saturday April 4 at 1130, confirmed on WRMI 9955, S9 with pulse
jamming. Slept thru Sat 1300 on WRMI 15770; awaiting Ivo`s report.

** U S A. 17775-, Saturday April 4 at 1524, no signal from KVOH, maybe
on but zero propagation. Trying to confirm where `Wavescan` is really
airing as scheduled. Recheck at 1800, certainly on now in
Saturday-only English, off-frequency minus (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
