** CUBA. 4746 & 4784 approx., March 18 at 0118, scratchy spurblobs out
of 4765 R. Progreso still pollute the band, plus/minus ~19v kHz.
Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK,, WOR)

** CUBA. 5040, March 18 at 0112, RHC in dead air except for some hum;
something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5040, March 18 at 0601, RHC still in Spanish instead of
English; which is on 6100, but 6060 is off, and 6000 OC at first and
turning off; while 9700 continues S9+20 in English. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13773 S5 & 13626 S7 approx., March 18 at 1359, wide spurblobs
out of RHC 13700-AM; also 2nd-order 13553; with program audio almost
clear along with tone which I have been denoting F# above middle-C,
but not rechecked against keyboard until now when I find it closer to
F-natural (where`s that ♮ symbol?) i.e. closer to 350 than 370 Hz
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GUATEMALA. 4055.00, March 18 at 0113, TGAV, R. Verdad, reactivated,
S9 but unreadable vs storm noise; as Dr Madrid answered me last week
he planned to do by March 17. Just after I had closed down last night,
his notice of resumption went out at 0546:

``Le informamos que Radio Verdad Onda Corta YA ESTÁ EN EL AIRE CON 250
TRANSMISOR. Gracias a Dios y a la ayuda de los Ingenieros Jhaír
Ramírez, quien hizo el trabajo, y Rafael Borthwick, de Canadá, quien
lo dirigió. Éste es el link directo:
radio verdad tv, Día 171.83, Anuncio RV``

Full power is listed as only 700 watts, but definitely weaker now than
it had been. Recheck at 0600 it`s S9 but still VP vs noise. At 0617:40
I can tell that the lengthy national anthem starts at sign-off (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KOREA SOUTH [non]. 9605, March 18 at 0111, KBS in Spanish via WHRI
is still here and not on 11880 via VOA Grimesland, where it tested for
a few days a week ago. However, A-21 tentative HFCC no longer shows
9605 but 11880 instead (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7490.053V, March 18 at 0124, remeasuring WBCQ since it`s
lowered from the 7490.2 maximum area. Slightly wavering making it
difficult to pinpoint (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Bonaire KiwiSDR where it`s normally audible even in daytime; now what?
