** CUBA. 13634 & 13766 approx., Feb 3 at 1518, RHC FMish distorted
spurblobs out of 13700-AM today are only JBA, but enough to bother
algo on 13765-AM. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** ETHIOPIA [non] 15160, Feb 3 at 1520, JBA carrier with flutter; just
enough to lead to further info from others on the WOR iog:

Ivo Ivanov concludes it is this from there:
``FRANCE Dimtse Tigray new clandestine broadcast via TDF Issoudun
1500-1700 15160 ISS 250 kW / 130 deg EaAf Tigrinya Tigray Media House
Good here in Sofia and via SDRs Heimiswil Switzerland and Sokyriany
Ukraine -- 73! Ivo Ivanov``

Chris Smolinski, Maryland: ``Generally a good signal here at 1529 UTC,
but frequent OTHR bursts completely block it out now and then``

Arthur Pozner, near NYC, who discovered it yesterday, Feb 3 at 1620:
``The program yesterday made very frequent announcements of "R. Tigray
Media House". Today it is fading very often and that interference only
lasted for a few minutes at 1525-1530. Sounded like variable white
noise, and it blocked the transmission totally.``

``No one seems to specify explicitly the language heard. Radio T-M-H-
is obviously in English but anything else? They do do English
programming on YouTube. Glenn``

Wolfgang Bueschel, Germany: ``KIWInet option TdOA direction finding
give some - all is probably -, two different disappointing image
outputs. For a 19 meter band of signal direction finding you need a rx
triangle 2500 km distance away at least. Likely Issoudun or Nauen
bcast center origin. FMO is Broadcast Belgium

Dr Hansjoerg Biener, Germany: ``Ethiopia (Tigray): The English section
of „Radio Tigrai Media House“ at https://tmhtv.org/ is not too
informative.

https://tmhtv.org/en/2018/05/31/ethiopia-a-stable-peace-or-an-impending-crisis/
does not seem to be against the central government.

https://tmhtv.org/blog/2019/06/07/alarming-ethnic-based-attacks-and-targeted-killings-of-civilians-in-ethiopia/
is critical of the central government/the Amhara state.
There are many uploads to YouTube, including this advertisement for
„T-M-H-R“/“Radio Tigrai Media House“:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UafDL6owQMs.
Judging from the right column, there have been a lot of uploads in
recent days.(Dr Hansjoerg Biener 3 February 2021)``
