** CUBA. 15410 approx., August 1 at 2151, distorted spurblob with
music and telltale F# tone, so I know immediately it has to be coming
from the nearest RHC, i.e. 15370: Yes, undermodulated there at S7,
soon with poetry or lyrix recitation; where else at ~40-kHz intervals?
S5 15333 approx. at minus 37, while they are really diffuse, now
15407-15411 audible; JBA around 15447 but not around 15289. Event from
an echoey hall, mentions Moncada, perpetual revolutionary obsession,
living in the past. Surely same spurry transmitter recently on 11670
later, and less recently on 13700 earlier. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11800, Aug 1 at 2206, RHC is S7-S8 and suptorted while its
parasitic spurs on 11790 & 11810 are mere JBA carriers (Glenn Hauser,

** GERMANY [non]. 9675: after barely hearing `Encore` via Channel 292
on new 9670 via UTwente after 1700, I check again Aug 1 at 1855 to
find how bad the CCI be from EAST TURKISTAN, CRI in Persian already
there at 1800-1900 --- which taking Ivo`s advice, caused Uncle Bill to
reschedule his new Friday bihour on 9670 from August 7 to 16-18
instead of 18-20 UT. Yes, would certainly have a problem before 1900
on 9670, but a far greater problem is huge signal at UTwente on 9675,
Sa`udi Arabia in stilted Turkish, furthermore distorted
over-modulation breaking up! Riad at 1800-2100 per EiBi, 1755-2057 per
Aoki but missing from HFCC A-20! HFCC does show a further mess on
9675, 1900-2100 Egypt in Russian which I think is imaginary but not
checked after 1900; and from 2020 an hour from Iran in Spanish which
would collide with Sa`udi until it`s finished at 2057 or 2100. That`s
also likely to ACI 292 if anyprogram try to use it those hours. BTW
only two of the six airings of `Encore` classical music on WRMI are
any good here to the NW, and I do catch it UT Sunday Aug 2 at
0100-0200 on 5850 via OKC SDR; next is UT Monday 0200-0300 on 9455.
Always enjoyable and tnx to Brice Avery for producing it! (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. Re my last report under unID MW: ``I was also checking page
59 of WRTH 2020, the glossy map of Europe, and notice there is a SW
site in red at San Fernando, on the SW coast of Spain just above
Gibraltar. When was there ever a SW site there, beyond Noblejas or
long-gone Arganda?? Maybe utility? I`ve always felt these maps should
be much more detailed if they would show at least major MW sites, but
they are only for SW``

Richard Langley explains that this refer to timesignal station EBC.
The diamond at the spot is in dark blue which the legend explains
refers to such SW outlets, as shown on page 669: 1 kW CW but on air
less than one hour weekdays only: 1000-1025 on 15006, 1030-1055 on
4998. Is it active? Can`t recall any recent reports of it and I`m
never listening at that hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Aug 1 at 2200, no signal here from VOT English, but
at 2215 a JBA carrier; maybe came on late (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 14285-USB, Sat Aug 1 at 2159, ``Air Force Flyers Roundtable
Net``, no calls copied but someham remarx that duct tape is conductive
so where that matters, use black tape instead (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
