** AFGHANISTAN [non]. 7470, March 19 at 0245, S7 carrier vs S9 storm
crashes, open? No, fades up a bit with some YL talk, ME language. Yes,
VOA Deewa in Pashto is sked at 01-04 via Lampertheim, GERMANY,

My ears perked up at tune-in, since 7470 was the favorite frequency of
Station YHWH, but quickly discounted as not Josiah`s voice. He`s been
AWOL for months, yet still in Aoki as daily 0300-0530! Last report of
that I find was September 10 by Harold Frodge, MI. There were some
other catches in August by Eric Fetters-Walp near Seattle, Aug 31 and
Aug 5, and Rick Barton, AZ on Aug 15. My last log was August 5 at 0231
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, March 19 at 0239, RHC Spanish S9/+10 but big humbuzz.
Something`s always wrong at RHC. Had been starting circa 0300, but DST
probably earlied it to 0200? Iran finishes Arabic at 0230 but then
there`s the Algeria/France hour at 0400 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13630 and weaker 13770 distorted spurblobs, March 19 at 1432,
plus & minus ~70 kHz from RHC 13700, with F-natural tone. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15426 approx., March 19 at 1441, extremely distorted spurblob
with music of the RHC ilk, but something NEW here. Yes, can // it to
15140 and 15230. Separation is plus 286 kHz from 15140, and nothing
between them, but also a trace at minus 286 = 14854. Still there at
1501, after 15230 has closed. 15140 itself is slightly distorted.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY. 15300.055V, March 19 at 1439, JBA talk on fluxuating
frequency as I try to measure it, roughly 15300.045-15300.064. Nothing
in Aoki but EiBi has it: 1430-1500, Bible Voice, Canada, in Nuer via
Nauen! to Sudan; also spoken in Ethiopia. Surprised even Nauen has
such an unstable transmitter (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GUATEMALA. 4055, March 19 at 0610, TGAV is S9 with hymn; 0613
prayer in English to JC, 0615 quoting James V: 1-3, not signing off
yet. Better than last night as noise level lower (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** SRI LANKA. 15705, March 19 at 1434, JBA S3-S6 music with flutter,
unusual to hear anything here --- only listee is at 14-15, AWR in
Chinese via transpolar Trinco (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15016-USB, March 19 at 1448, US military coded message with
exaggerated echo and whine, preceded by ``For Retail Price``, copied
fonetikaly: 3QXN7CA7Z2VHULQHIIMBAWIXY5W34D but could not understand
closing weird tactical ID, out (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

WOR 2078 first airings confirmed UT Friday March 19 at 0130 on WRMIs:
5850 VG S9+30 direct; 7780 VG to UTwente S9/+10 but hearing some
skipping not on my original recording. Better than usual direct,
sufficient S9+10. Both also audible way offbeam at Bonaire SDR (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15770, March 18 at 1839, web address -- a new program? NO, proceeds to SMTV stuff.
But that URL goes nowhere, nor variations with x, double-s, or stop.
This WRMI doesn`t inboom off the side here, yet at S9/+10 attains SSOB
status, slightly more than 15140 RHC - there is so little activity on
band to compete (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VENEZUELA. 6205.032v-AM, March 19 at 0040, ROCV is S7-S8 into
Bonaire SDR, with lively tropical music but somewhat distorted -
overmodulated. Back on the air after absence last night (Glenn Hauser,
