** CUBA. 11760, Sunday March 12 at 0705, RHC is still on here, and
nowhere on 6 MHz band, in Esperanto, now moved one hour earlier for
the next octomonth, since as a running dog of Yanqui Imperialism, Cuba
has just gone on EDT to match Miami. At 1458 recheck, 11760 with a
local timecheck as 10:58 = UT -4 instead of -5.

13700, March 12 at 1500 UT ex-1600, the next repeat of Esperanto
confirmed also earlied an hour, including this extra frequency still
going at 1610 in addition to 11760, the only one on the imaginary
opening announcement, and to 15140 which has really been // for years.
The clueless Esperantists claim it`s Sunday at 0800 on 6100, where it
rarely appeared, and at 1600 on 11760, only. The third airing is even
more iffy, having shown up on different frequencies at 2130 instead of
2230 or 2330; will it now be 2030? Something`s always wrong at RHC.

English broadcasts are expected to appear one UT hour earlier now,
starting with 1900, on 15140 at least. Except to ``Africa`` at 2200 in
winter normally changes backwards to 2300 in summer. Has been on 11880
extremely unreliably. All needs to be confirmed by monitoring, but
everything is tentative.

15140, March 12 at 1900, yes, ``news`` in English already underway
into Missouri; no signal on 11760. But 15140 dumps to dead air at
1930, carrier off circa 1935. Then bandscan finds no other RHCs on 11,
13, 15, even 17 MHz. But by 1949, 13680 is on with music, and French

** DENMARK [non]. I am checking out the WRN stream for N America now
that stupid DST has been imposed upon us: as expected, its schedule
remains the same in UT. Sunday after 1700 is a speech/interview about
European military aid for Ukraine, no clue which ``station`` this is
from. By 1728 wraps up as ``Copenhagen Calling``, = ``Banns Radio
International`` as listed on the schedule:
Followed at 1730 by NHK. Thus we may conclude that WORLD OF RADIO
times on WRN to NAm --- plus Asia, Africa, Pacific, remain the same
until UK go on BST in two more weeks, when nonsensically, NAm service
will shift to match what had been their lineup by standard time here
