Hi Glenn, my latest Hitlist update.

1) Update to UTC offset notations for Cuba and USA following DST
2) Spain - REE: Added link to A-21 frequency schedule
Unless there's a major change anywhere, the next update will be end of
March for further DST changes. Best wishes and 73 (Alan Roe)

** CUBA. As a running dog of Yanqui Imperialism, Cuba normally
synchronizes DST shift dates to keep up with the Miami Gusanos, so
should now be on UT -4; and despite being an external service, RHC
shifts programming one UT hour earlier, as if that were anything but
confusing in the rest of Latin America.

So `En Contacto` should show up at 1335 UT Sundays --- but not March
14. At 1336 a discussion of COVID statistics, later outro as a live
daily news conference by the head epidemiologist, which apparently
preƫmpt everything. Monitored on S9+10 13740, louder and stronger than
S7-S9 13700 with no spurs detectable, also 9650 but distorted.
Somethings` always wrong at RHC.

I check 13700 again at 1443 in case not DST-shifted, but no E.C. then
either. No local timechex caught, but 1455 newscast on 15140 and now
11760 is quite distorted via KC MO SDR; Frequency announcement at 1500
says 11760 & 15140 until 1800, also on the 24h FMs;

1501 starts Esperanto, ex-1600v winter timing, Sundays only. I bet
their own schedule announcement be wrong as usual too but unstayed on
it, as it`s daylight-shifting time for `Reliable Sources` on CNN; and
`Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival` on KUCO (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND [and non]. 11725, March 14 at 0704, RNZP, huge S9+10/20
VG signal, introducing original cast recording from 1999y of ``Mamma
Mia``. Was going to award it OSOB status until scan of 25m detected
JBA carriers on 11835, 11815, 11770-; so merely SSOB. First had found
9700 vacant, still not QSY from 11725; but that has been moved up to

Meanwhile, Ron Howard reports that Vanuatu is now on 3945 as early as
0533 instead of 7260, consequently its harmonix too.

6115, March 14 at 1350, RNZP still VG here with music (Glenn Hauser,

** U S A. Another eQSL received from TRSW, now #116 via
with this reply:

``Ahoy Glenn - Here's an eQSL for your post in the WOR group.

Cap'n Ric's mulling over your idea of featuring a woodwind orchestra
in an upcoming program. He wonders if it could be paired with live
readings of his poetry, which would take diversity to a new level.
We've heard his poetry and hope he deep-sixes any idea of reading it.
We're not so sure about the woodwinds either. TRSW's program committee
-- Cap'n Ric -- will make a decision soon.

Our programs on WRMI, 5950 kHz, repeat each week until we upload a new
one before the beginning of the next month. Occasionally Jeff White
adds a TRSW program in a different time slot for variety. We
appreciate that because it's another opportunity for listeners to hear
us. 73 and Arrgghh. Always be yourself. Unless you can be a pirate.

** U S A [and non]. 9975, March 14 at 0702, gospel music only S1-S4,
but must be KVOH beyond scheduled 0700* as of Feb 3 sked; suspect they
are now moving everything one UT hour earlier to stay at same local
time - as if that applied in target Caribbean, South America so would
now quit circa 0600v*. I ask Ray Robinson about this, who promptly

``Hi, Glenn. KVOH will now be on 9975 kHz 0000-0600 UT Tue-Sun.
Wavescan at 0200 UT Sun, repeated at 0200 UT Tue. And, the updated
KVOH sched is now on the website.

Voice of Hope - Africa schedule is unchanged (no DST in those parts).
Wavescan at 0600 UT Sun on 9680 & 11680 kHz, repeated at 1800 UT Mon
on 4965 & 6065 kHz.

** U S A. 1090-LSB, March 14 at 0653 UT, quick recheck for WENR TN DX
test, which I had heard immediately at 0458-0509, no sign of it now,
just KAAY; supposed to run until 0700, but quit early? When not
DX-testing, WENR format is ``The Little Gospel Giant`` (Glenn Hauser,

UNIDENTIFIED. RF 35, 34, 22, 20, 15, March 14 at 1455 UT, BAD signal
bars on these `open` TVDX channels tnx to minor tropo enhancement
