** CANADA [and non]. 269-MCW kHz, March 10 at 0726 UT, ND beacon UDE
--- could it be a Cuban, all of which start with U-? No, this one
alternates with a dash, so it`s Canadian, 50 watts from Delta MB.

DXinfocentre.com shows 16 U- Cubans, but all ``decommissioned`` except
250 in Habana - Playa Baracoa, UBP with 80 watts. Not even heard
here.

As in my previous compilation of Caribeacons, classaxe.com shows two
still logged in Jan or Feb this year, 250 UBP and 339 UAH Santiago,
and three more in 2020; but many more are not darkened yet. Lots have
changed their U- callsigns over the years; for security? And/or
miskeying. Something`s always wrong --- here, too (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 9650, Mar 10 at 2007, S9+10 open carrier, SSOB; likely RHC
warming up much earlier than nominal *2200 start and totally blocking
any Guinea. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ERITREA [non]. 17545.061V, Wed Mar 10 at 1530, S4-S7 Bayto Yaikl
clandestine via defective FRANCE transmitter, audibly wavarying as I
try to measure it, roughly between 17545.049 and 17545.073. Semihour
also only on Saturdays, brokered by RMI (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 11820.044, Mar 10 at 1940, continuous Qur`aning, S8
with a lot of deep fading to S5; as always, off-frequency, but
seasonally showing up better again soporifically for my nap until
switch at 2000 to plain Arabic talk; probably soon back to Qur`an
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, March 10 at 2006, REE reactivated after missing this
frequency for almost a week, S9/+10; so, good prospect for token
English at 2300 W/F/M; now it`s a silly ballgame in Spanish. Yes, at
2309, guitar-singers featured by Justin Coe on VG S9+10 into
Bonaire.

Pedro Sedano sends planned A-21 sked showing 9690 replaced by 17855
for North America, total span 1400/0200. Should be good over daypaths,
but much lower needed over nightpaths, like 9690. Wolfgang Bueschel
shows alternative version, changing to 9690 at 2200; we hope (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2076 monitoring: confirmed Wed Mar 10 at 2100
on WRMI 7780, S7-S9 into UTwente SDR.

Also confirmed Wed Mar 10 from 2200:21 on WBCQ 7490+, S7-S9 into KB0FX
SDR in MO, but with some lightning crashes which Blitzortung shows can
be no closer than southern MN and northern MI

Also confirmed Wed Mar 10 at 2300 on WRMI 9955, S8/S9+10 into Bonaire
SDR, atop jamming but losing out as the semihour progresses. Next:

0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

New WOR 2077 should be ready by early UT Fri March 12 for first
airings at 0130 on WRMIs 5850, 7780 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11825.020, March 10 at 1535, S4-S7 of M&W dialog,
intonation sort of French but not sure. Nothing scheduled now in
latest HFCC, Aoki or EiBi; tho RBAustralia may run until 1500*. Clew:
another site, capable of offfrequenciness (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11945, March 10 until 1538.4* shortly after tune-in to
JBA signal with Doppler flutter. Nothing scheduled; maybe a pre-test
for the next one, *1700 Japan via France? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
