** ANGUILLA. 6090, UT Wed Aug 29 at 0141, CariBeacon is back on with PMS, having missed its 2-day-a-week broadcasts on UT Mon & Tue, so making up for that? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 11780 RF, Aug 29 at 0133, RNA is back in whack in AM here, ex-11686-FM all afternoon and evening yesterday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, Aug 28 at 0607, RHC English is very undermodulated here and somewhat distorted, while 6165 is as soft but not distorted; 6100 is JBA, and 6060 is very good strength and modulation. So at least one of them is working. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

6000, UT Wed Aug 29 at 0142, just as Arnie is ending mit-week edition of `DXers Unlimited`, RHC English is just barely modulated here, somewhat louder on // 6165. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 4765, Aug 29 at 0143, R. Progreso is off, while 5025 & 5040 remain on; by 0349, 4765 is back on but undermodulated, S9+10/20 about same level as 5025 Rebelde, but which is better modulated. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13899, 13831, 13766, 13634, 13567, 13501, 13434, approx. frequencies of extremely distorted FM spurblobs out of the 13700-AM transmitter, August 28 at 1328, so RHC-FM has been reactivated at ~67 kHz intervals, first time heard in about a month. Helps that fundamental is extremely strong at S9+30/40. All including 13700 still have that F# tone above C middle, and only the tone can be detected at the furthest ones out. The four closest and very strong ones are quite readable with FM tuning. Recheck at 1320, just a trace at 13634 & 13766, tho 13700 is still S9+30. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1945, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Aug 28 at 0605, VON is finally back on, with the bigsig Hausa hour, S9+20; had not been heard for at least a dekaday (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1945, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490v, UT Wed Aug 29 at 0140, WBCQ is off, as apparently since at least August 25, Blalock the Blaster is no longer running daily at 0100. Except UT Thu will probably still run Hal Turner instead (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5129.83, UT Wed Aug 29 at 0146, this WBCQ has been turned on for presumed `Amateur Radio Roundtable` with W5KUB, but too far down in the noise to copy; while 5085, WTWW-2 is inbooming with another ham show. It`s no accident, as when W5KUB pulled off WTWW, Ted retaliated by putting his own QSO show on at the same time ~45 kHz away. Unfortunately, QSO wins by strength, but ARR also has a video webcast. Otherwise, 5130- is now off most of the time with no more BS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
