** CUBA. 13699.812, Jan 16 at 1541, RHC off-frequency again, S8-S9; as
heard yesterday but not in time to measure. As in previous report, was
also askew on 9699.879 at 0227. Both also weaker than normal, and
lacking spurblobs on 13 MHz, suspect a totally different transmitter
has been substituted. Meanwhile, Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria found another
such: 6099.86 at 12-14. He thinx the same Bauta transmitter would be
on 15140v from 19 in Arabic, 20 in English; but at 1739 and 1940, it`s
within a fraxion of 1 Hz from 15140.00 per Bonaire SDR (Glenn Hauser,

** U S A. Just watched this on OETA, highly recommended; SW angle:

``The Codebreaker --- Wife. Mother. Secret American Hero.

Based on the book The Woman Who Smashed Codes: A True Story of Love,
Spies, and the Unlikely Heroine Who Outwitted America's Enemies, The
Codebreaker reveals the fascinating story of Elizebeth Smith Friedman,
the groundbreaking cryptanalyst whose painstaking work to decode
thousands of messages for the U.S. government would send infamous
gangsters to prison in the 1930s and bring down a massive,
near-invisible Nazi spy ring in WWII. Her remarkable contributions
would come to light decades after her death, when secret government
files were unsealed. But together with her husband, the legendary
cryptologist William Friedman, Elizebeth helped develop the methods
that led to the creation of the powerful new science of cryptology and
laid the foundation for modern codebreaking today.

** VENEZUELA. 6200+, Jan 16 at 1742, into TWR Bonaire Kiwi SDR, steady
S5 noisy RC/USB signal with peppy Spanish songs and brief
announcements; 1759, ``es la una``, ID as ``ROCV en 6,200 kHz``. SAM
mode shows slight fluxuation up to 12 Hz plus; sometimes jumping to
400-500 Hz range, perhaps confused by unheard QRM. Still the same at
1940 recheck.

Totally daytime; employing distancefromto.net for distance El Tigre to
Kralendijk, first try with those names and countries is totally wrong,
393 km, map pointing to a spot just east of Lake Maracaibo, while El
Tigre is really SE of Caracas, S of Cumaná, Barcelona and Puerto la
Cruz, midway to Ciudad Bolívar. Then I insert the state, Anzoátegui to
get it right: 569 km = 354 statute miles. Always inspect the map to be
sure it`s not a spurious result. Have seen no reports yet of hearing
its alternate frequency 7375 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

TIPS FOR RATIONAL LIVING

Opinion editor's pick COLUMN:
In the face of a reckoning, white supremacists, enablers cry 'Unity,
unity!' --- James Neal | Enid News & Eagle Jan 15, 2021

... if you want to understand why this evil persists in a nation
populated by people — of all colors — who are mostly not white
supremacists, consider the words of that master-insurgent, Mao Zedong:
“The guerrilla must move amongst the people as a fish swims in the
sea.”
