** CUBA. 890, March 20 at 0252 UT, Spanish music, ``en la Habana``,
hardly any signal from WLS, on E/W antenna, must be auroral
conditions, WCCO also attenuated; then introduces a Norwegian
orchestra to play a tune ``Cuban --`` something titled in English. No
doubt the 200 kW Radio Progreso at Chambas, but no SW // 4765 to
compare (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6000, March 20 at 0225, RHC S9+40/45 but huge humbuzz atop
English modulation. The hum may be local as I also hear it on some
other strong signals, but not the buzz. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9700, March 20 at 0237, S9+20/25 of dead air, no doubt RHC.
Wolfie thinx this replace 6165 English, ever on air any more?
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11760, March 20 at 0240, S9+18 of dead air from RHC where
something`s always wrong. Also DA of S9+20 at 0606, thus for 3+ hours?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 11850, March 20 at 0240, RHC S6/S7, just barely
modulated as standard for this frequency, flanked by JBA spur carrier
on 11840; and on 11860 QRMing the jamming against nothing and
something else, presumably Sa`udi`s Yemen surrogate. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** INDIA. 15050, March 20 at 0219, algo S1/S2 to S3/S4. Must be AIR
Indonesian hour 0130-0230 via Bengaluru. I continue to marvel how
aeronauticals have not driven broadcasters out of their band (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925 USB, March 20 at 0229, live DJ seems quite a
character, S9+10, says may not stay on much longer, a tune; 0232
recheck just in time for ``thanks for putting up --- ID?, over and
out``. These show it`s Pigs Knuckles, until 0232*, several other
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7475 AM, March 20 at 0234, Station YHWH, earnestly
questioning Christianity, S9+15/20 undermodulated (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** SAO TOME E PRINCIPE. 13865, March 20 at 0559 open carrier, 0600 BBC
with `Newshour`. One hour only relay via Pinheira, and strangely
enough, not noticeably off-frequency. Signal on band second only to
13755 NZ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13565 CW, March 20 at 0601, HIFER beacon with continuous IDs
from Patterson CA; vs CODAR. Must be very first time I`ve heard it
outside the usual post-sunrise window around 14/16 UT, suspecting it`s
not 24h. It was stronger then than JBA at 1504 vs CODAR (Glenn Hauser,

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2182 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
March 19 at 2100.5 on IRRS SW via AM Italia, 1323 kHz only, S9+15 into
nearby Noale SDR above lite music CCI presumably Smooth Radio,
Brighton, England.

Also confirmed UT Monday March 20 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, S9/+10 into
Louisiana SDR, still blasted by noise first 14 seconds, and bits

Also confirmed UT Monday March 20 from 0303, ex-0400v, after dead air
from 0301 tune-in, S9+5 on WBCQ Area 51, 6160-. Next:

** U S A. 9380-9410, March 20 at 0610, splatter range out of WRMI-6,
9395 with TOMBS at S9+10/20 somewhat overmodulating. Not as bad as
9455 was recently (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9975, UT Monday March 20 at 0238, S9+25/30 of gospel huxter,
so KVOH manages to be on air at least partly this weekend (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1130, March 20 at 0250 UT, dominant signal on E/W antenna is
Spanish ad citing 678 area code phone number twice. Therefore it has
to be WLBA, Gainesville GA, a 10 kW ND daytimer! And no KLEY KS
cheater audible for a change. Overcomes KWKH which is not much at
night thisaway.

New on me, but Terry Krueger, FL, reported: ``1130 GEORGIA WLBA
Gainesville 1038 12/18/22 The perpetual overnight cheater, parallel
1600 WAOS overnight power cheater, with the usual Mexi-tunes format``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1150, March 20 at 0249 UT, S9 of dead air on E/W antenna,
S9+28 on N/S wire, no doubt the dominant night station here, KSAL
Salina KS (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1440, March 20 at 0248 UT tune-across, ``1440 KPUR`` and Ag
update, i.e. Amarillo TX in its current farm format. No ghost from
WGEM to conflict with it any more (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UZBEKISTAN [and non]. 12084.844, March 20 at 1510, weak carrier
with flutter, I first thought must be V of Mongolia, always
off-frequency -- but Aoki shows that at 09-11 only, while 1500-1530 is
AWR Tamil via Tashkent, which is also way off-frequency. At 13-15 VOM
is supposed to be on 12015- which is also offset minus. However, Ron
Howard just reported March 17 that it was on 12014.87 until 1100
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9340 USB, March 20 at 0608, one side of 2-way, including
whistling, laughing in unknown language (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
