** CANADA. 366-MCW kHz, April 4 at 0604 UT, ND beacon dash and YMW,
which is 500 watts from Maniwaki, Quebec. Where`s that? North of
Gatineau on the way to Mont-Laurier. Where`s Gatineau? Probably the
most under-rated city in Canada, overlooked as a mere suburb of Ottawa
across the river/border. In fact, population of Gatineau is 265K, i.e.
more than 4X Victoria BC which everyone has heard of; while Ottawa is
883K; but eclipsed by Maniwaki of only 4K yet with this continental
signal.

413-MCW kHz, April 4 at 0603 UT, NDB dash and YHD, 250 watts from
Dryden, Ontario. I am savouring the ones I can still detect as we head
into the spring storm season. Tonight there is only a bit of Blitz in
southern TX and the SE corner of NM (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6165, April 4 at 0537, RHC English is back here after 6145
last night; can`t decide which? Hard-soul music during `Music with a
Message`, concentrating on 1971 US anti-war era. 6100 is S9+30 but now
developing a squeal à la WWCR-1. 6060 is S9+10 not buzzy for a change
but distorted. 6000 is S9+30 but lo-fi A/B comparing to audio
bandwidth on 6060. 5040 is back in English for a change, S9+30.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140 // 11760, Sunday April 4 at 1501, RHC opening weekly
Esperanto; OM announcer still can`t shake his first-language Spanish,
misaccenting politíko as polítiko --- those stripping accents out of
my reports when quoting may have no idea what I`m talking about. Then
standard sign-on announcement with schedule, so I listen closely: yes,
still outdated as the Esperantists are clueless about their own SW
broadcasts: claims Sundays at 0800 on 6100, but which wolfie just
confirmed is really at the summer timing of 0700; 1600 for this one on
11760, only, the more recent addition of 15140 unknown to them; and
2230 on 15730, which maybe will chance to be correct, TBD. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13568, 13634, 13767, 13834, approx., April 4 at 1358, FM/AM
spurblobs out of RHC 13700-AM, all with F# tone, at 66-67 kHz
intervals and X2. But can`t hear any X3 third-order blobs. 13834 also
QRMing a weak AM on 13835, which would be RFA Tibetan via Tajikistan
about to close or more likely its ChiCom jammer. Spurs resumed after
missing a few days; something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 15370, April 4 at 1926, open carrier at S9; 1930 RHC starting
French program, cleaner modulation than on 15140 English with mailbag
at S9+10. This is evidently the start of the European service, which
RHC French page still shows at 2030 for B-season:

Something`s always wrong at RHC. Aoki/NDXC shows 15370 only at
1600-1900 in Spanish, which I think has never been correct (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 263-MCW kHz, April 4 at 0608 UT, CVM, 25-watt NDB at Alton -
CiVic Memorial, Illinois.

347-MCW kHz, April 4 at 0605 UT, AFK, 25-watt NDB at Nebraska City, NE
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
