** CUBA. 11840, June 12 at 2206, once again like yesterday, RHC is
here ex-11850, ex-11840, ex-11850, etc., and it`s suptorted.
Something`s always wrong at RHC. BTW, 11840 was also Station YHWH`s
frequency choice for midday Saturday broadcast until 1830+ as caught
by Rick Barton, AZ; before Cuba would be on (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6955-USB, June 13 at 0037, rock/soul music S9+10,
suspect Wolverine Radio, and yes, quick IDs between tunes at 0111.5
and 0123.6. This week`s theme is songs with ``Me`` in the title, per
monitored playlists at:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,82761.0.html
Still going past 0200 when it`s time for `Weekend Radio` on WCLV
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6974.930-AM, June 13 at 0103, weak pirate music, via
W8BUG remote, S5 vs S7 storm crashes; with SAM reading -70 Hz offset
from 6975.00; presumed Nowhere Radio as usual (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 94.3, June 12 at 2055 UT, still June 13 at 0122, KLGB-LP
Enid is dead air in $tereo but with static KLGB____ ID on RDS. I
suppose it will be dead the entire weekend like it was May 29-30. If
only they would also turn off carrier since tho LP it`s so close that
DXing any adjacent 94.1 & 94.5 is tough, no chance on 94.3 itself
(Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2090 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
June 12 from 1800:40 on IRRS 7290 via Bulgaria, via UTwente SDR, VG
S9+15/25, and also trace on X 2 = 14580. Strange that both have
same-pitch warble on their USB, evitable by LSB tuning. Does that mean
it`s really also coming out of the 7290 transmitter rather than
external QRM?

Also via Italia-AM, 918 kHz, Villa Estense, via nearby Noale SDR,
running about 7 seconds ahead of 7290/UTw. Earlier: At 1754, 7290 had
open carrier over Chinese showing 7289.999; *1757 cut on much bigger
carrier as above. On 918, talk show in English interrupted to JIP Aïda
theme at 1758.7, but on 7290, dead air to Aïda does not start until
1759.8; brief IRRS sign-on, several seconds pause before WOR start.

Also confirmed from 1939 Sat June 12 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO via nearby
KB0FX SDR.

Also confirmed UT Sun June 13 at 0321 about 5 minutes into so started
about 0316 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, again via KB0FM remote. Next:

** U S A. 9939.949, UT Sun June 13 at 0018, WTWW is active again on
this off-frequency only, with #2 programming while 5085 is off instead
of // as reported previously. During `Amateur Radio Newsline`, item
about a Bigfoot net in Oklahoma, Wednesdays at 20h CT on 7115. (A SE
county is promoting Bigfoot-hunts as a tourist attraxion.) After ARNL
I am expecting `TOUTA` but instead hard-sell ads, 0025 canned WTWW ID
disrespectfully with Our National Anthem clip as produxion music.
Unlike 5085, I can`t detect any JBA spurs about plus/minus 12.9 kHz,
which is fortunate since they would het 9925 KBC and 9955 WRMI! So
maybe this is the otherwise idle #3 transmitter? Nor during music does
it sound distorted as 5085. 0027 classic rock, 0030 Atlas weather,
still no TOUTA, so I check pirate band.

0042 recheck, now `Theater Organ Under the Arch` has just started
late. Original S9+10/20 signal now going into some deep fades which
would not be happening on 5 MHz band. I`ve switched to the $tereo
non-fading webcast. At 0058 plays `Knightsbridge March` from London
Suite by Eric Coates, probably unaware it was the theme of HCJB`s `DX
Partyline`; but quite a different arrangement. Here is a traditional
orchestral performance, perhaps the very one HCJB used:

TOUTA is usually a ~31-minute program, but chopped off at 0102 after
only 20+ minutes! No compensation for the late start; tnx a lot, Ted.
Cut to bible verse, ID, and then the all-important rock DJ with
`International Happy Hour` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
