** CUBA. 11850, June 14 at 0215, RHC back here ex-11840, ex-11850,
ex-11840, etc., but S9+10/20 of dead air; flanked by the JBA parasitic
spur carriers on 11840 & 11860. 0446 recheck still on with suptorted
modulation and the spurs. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, June 14 at 0216, RHC humbuzz over music, presumably
Spanish service at this hour. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KASHMIR [non]. Alfredo Cotroneo of IRRS writes me June 14:

``Hi Glenn, These broadcasts to Africa have now been ended by requests
of the sponsoring organisation.

However, we have a new broadcast on 15170 each Tuesday from 1500-1530
beamed to Kashmir. Any reception report will be welcome, and we will
pass it on to the broadcaster for answer according to our privacy
policy (GDPR applies to EU citizens) at
https://nexus.org/privacy-policy/
We will also issue our own QSL card, but we have a huge backlog, so
anyone please bear with us. Bests. Alfredo``

Tuesday only at 1500-1530 on 15170 is the HFCC registered one with 300
kW at 79 degrees from ``Milano``, while the Ugandan ones were
allegedly at 149 degrees (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA [non]. 9890, Radio Yoruba, 19-24 UT via Woofferton UK:

At 1958 UT June 13, Alan Pennington posted to BDXC-UK iog:

``There were a few tweets on Twitter last week about a test
transmission Sun 6 June 2100-2200 on 9890 (or 98.90 kHz) with the tag
#Yorubaradio e.g.
"We are now ready for the test transmission. It will take place this
Sunday 6th June and will run from 2100-2200 UTC. The frequency of the
transmission will be 9890 kHz and this is the frequency we would aim
to use for the full broadcast. #YorubaRadio." (Yoruba Nation on
Twitter June 5) This must be the same station on 9890 at the moment
(1945 UTC). 73, Alan``

With a jpg attached, which I have transcribed into text:

``RADIO YORUBA 98.90 KHZ [sic]
BROUGHT TO YOU BY:
WHITE LION [emoji]
Comrade Olayomi Koiki

#Radio_Yoruba to be launched on 6/6/2021
Thanks to Comrade Olayomi Koiki
(AKA #White_Lion) 98.90 KHz

He made this possible. Now the gospel of Yoruba
Nation liberation would continue to be preached for all
to accept the message and bear us witness that
Yoruba Nation must be free.

#SayNo2023Election
#SayNoNigeria

``God bless Oloye Sunday Igboho for volunteering
himself to lead us out of this fraudulent contraption
called Liegeria
God bless Yoruba Nation``.
Comrade Raphael Adewale
OLCC-Texas-USA
5/6/2021``

I was wondering if any of the broadcast would be in English? I am not
listening to Yoruba hour after hour, but at 2322 check, 9890 is being
narrated in heavily accented English plus music background. Via
UTwente. At 2358 anthem? 2359 brief talk and music, off 2359.5* The
signal direct had been JBA (gh)

Some earlier discussion of this on the WOR iog:

``9890 June 12 2155 UNKNOWN ENGLAND in Yoruba (?). Does anyone already
have name information or who is the broadcast going to? Very good
signal here. 250 kW information and 170° azimuth. (Jorge Freitas-B)

``Hi Jorge, Thanks. Very interesting! This station is regarding

The issue of Yoruba independence seems to be a very active matter just
now. Ron Howard``

``Thanks, Ron. Will listen out for them today. The desire of
independence for Yorubaland is not dissimilar to that of the Igbos in
Biafraland. Like many former British colonies, different ethnic
groupings of people (some with long-standing animosities) were forced
together to make a "new" country. Richard B. Langley``

``Hi Richard, Funny you should mention Biafra, as yesterday in London,
they held a joint Yoruba/Biafra rally. Is a very active time for
them!

``Thanks, Ron. And we remember that the Igbos had some clandestine
transmissions not so long ago including Radio Biafra:
https://shortwavearchive.com/archive/radio-biafra
You probably have similar recordings.

And a decent signal into the U. Twente SDR receiver. At 1945, noted
mentions of Yoruba and snippets of the Yoruba National Anthem.
-- Richard Langley``

And later, UT June 14:
``I only listened to it in the Yoruba language. The signal here for me
is good.

Eric Fetters-Walp: ``I've been listening off and on since 2100 UT,
when I could clearly detect a signal on 9890 out west here in Lake
Stevens, Washington state, but only bits of audio every few moments.
Starting around 2335, the audio has faded in enough to be consistently
audible (music now as of 2340). The talking's no longer in English,
however; back to presumed Yoruba`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6955-USB, June 14 at 0213, rock music, somewhat
distorted, and vs storm noise, S9; 0227 off or pause? 0231 on past
0246. Several reports here as unID, with SSTV but hard to decode on
unstable frequency. One image shows ``UNID`` on a pirate flag!
