** CHINA. 15775, May 5 at 0138, not much happening on 19m now but a
JBA carrier here. Aoki shows nothing but Sound of Hope at 2130-1600,
so it`s likely CNR1 *jamming (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) see also EAST

** CUBA. 15700, May 4 at 1504, CRI English relay is absent, nor on
ex-11880 either; propagation OK with RHC on 15140. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, May 4 at 19-20, missed checking whether RHC English
were back here from 15370 yesterday, and whether still only one hour
in the afternoon; did anybody notice? I did check May 4 at 2315 and
until 2357.8* with that English hour on 11880, while after 2200 was
still in French (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA? 5085, May 5 at 0018, Cuban-style weak pulse jamming centred
here before WTWW is on, now via Bonaire SDR, as heard before here when
WTWW was on. Possibly some kind of ute instead (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** CUBA. 4747 & 4783 approx., May 5 at 0035, scratchy spurblobs
obviously out of R. Progreso which has just come on 4765, into Bonaire
SDR just like I hear them direct, plus/minus 17-18 kHz. I can`t think
of anyone else who has ever reported these. No one else cares about
documenting all the crap Cuba defecates onto our SW bands? Something`s
always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11850, May 5 at 0135, RHC is S9+10/20 but suptorted, flanked
by the JBA carrier spurs on 11840 & 11860. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) see also EAST TURKISTAN [and non]

** EAST TURKISTAN [and non]. 9710, RHCuba has stuck to this new
frequency, which when it first appeared April 27, I pointed out
immediately would conflict with CRI to Latin America at 00-03 UT.

Now at 0034 May 5, into Bonaire SDR, continuous Chinese music is atop
RHC in Spanish, during their Portuguese hour which for years now has
been filled with music only on all its transmissions including 00-01.
Meanwhile RHC`s exes, 9650 and 9640 are both empty! Way to go,
frequency manager Arnie!

At 0054 CRI does announce the Portuguese schedule in Brazuguese
accent, including this hour, also on 6100. For 2300 I didn`t hear him
mention 13650 which is the Cuban relay. After that, dead air or off
until 0100 CRI IS, theme, Chinese and Spanish IDs.

From the land of ChiCom imperialist genocide against Uyghurs and other
Moslems, Kashgar site is 500 kW at 269 degrees for Portuguese,
shifting to 294 for Spanish, i.e. centrally aimed first at Rio de
Janeiro, then from Belém across mid-Brasil where the first SS country
hit directly is Bolivia, but should be good for neighbors Perú,
Paraguay, northern Argentina as well; CubaRM permitting, Commies vs

BTW, I would seldom quote National Review, but David Cole sends this
disturbing report from the May 17 [sic] issue which I have retitled:
Uyghur families pay a ChiCom imperialist price for RFA journalism

WRTH 2021 page 504 shows RFA has only two Uyghur hours per day, 01-02
& 16-17 UT, mostly via Kuwait on a different frequency each day of
week, also some via Saipan, Tinian, Dushanbe.

But for A-21 Bulgarian DX Blog shows:
0100-0200 on 9780 KWT 250 kW / 046 deg to CeAs Uyghur
0100-0200 on 9800 BIB 100 kW / 063 deg to CeAs Uyghur
0100-0200 on 11640 KWT 250 kW / 054 deg to CeAs Uyghur
0100-0200 on 11790 KWT 250 kW / 046 deg to CeAs Uyghur

1600-1700 on 9355 DB 200 kW / 060 deg to CeAs Uyghur
1600-1700 on 9480 KWT 250 kW / 046 deg to CeAs Uyghur
1600-1700 on 11675 TIN 250 kW / 305 deg to CeAs Uyghur
1600-1700 on 15700 BIB 100 kW / 075 deg to CeAs Uyghur
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY [and non]. I did manage to hear all the UBMP episode of
throat-singing, tnx to the unpublicized semi-repeat Mon May 3 at
2300-2330 on WBCQ 7490v webcast; and Tuesday May 4 at 2000-2100 on
Channel 292, 6070 with a VG signal into UTwente; which followed his
other show, FTIOM until 2000 and off the air at 2100*. BTW, UB says
next week`s FTIOM will be all-music, no interviews; on WBCQ UT Tue May
11 at 0000-0100 on WBCQ 7490v (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. 7162-LSB, May 4 at 0605, new frequency for ZL4RMF,
ex-7168 last night, Dunedin, in contact with OA4DPQ, unheard here
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PERU. 4775.037, May 5 at 0030, music from R. Tarma is S6-S7 into
Bonaire SDR, on signature offset frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PERU. 4752.477v, May 5 at 0033, music, talk from R. Huanta 2000,
also S6-S7 into Bonaire SDR but sounds weaker than Tarma. Both OAs
luck out escaping the Progreso, CUBA, q.v. spurs out of 4765 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** RUSSIA. 4996-CW, May 4 at 0022, binary pulses at S4-S5, via Bonaire
SDR. Got to be the 10 kW timesignal station in Taldom near Moskva,
despite the distance, doing as well as WWV into Bonaire SDR. Yes,
there are pips on the minute at 0023, 0024, 0025, 0026. Also checked
9996, no signal there. WRTH does not show any `program sked`; it would
be very helpful to know at least when they ID. IIRC it`s at :39 and
:09. Recheck at 0107 in constant tone/dash, 0108 dead air, and yes,
0109 RWM ID over and over in CW. 0217 rerecheck, second pips
occasionally doubled (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 9955, May 4 at 1506, TOMBS is on WRMI again
today // stronger 9395 and weaker 9455. Skedgrids now claim it`s daily
at 1430-1600; M-F from 1400; among many other deadly hours (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE

** VENEZUELA. 6205.028, May 5 at 0015, ROCV with tropical music, S5-S7
into Bonaire KiwiSDR. For one day last week it shifted to 6216,
reported by Manuel Mendez (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, May 5 at 0215: 855
is the only detected stepping thru every 9-kHz, vs considerable local
and storm noise levels. Likely Spain RNE1 with 10 synchros totaling
445 kW, headed by one 300; altho Romania has a single 400 too (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5040.8, May 5 at 0020, RHC has a het on the plus side as
heard by Bonaire SDR; no known such broadcasters. India should be
about to open but not so off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
