** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Nov 3 at 1531 tune-in via Brasil SDR,
LRA36 is on this Wednesday S5-S6, but signing-off, ``todo por hoy``
until next miércoles, then complete Antártida song about Base
Esperanza et al. Of course, 1535 continues immediately with more rock
music until really chopped off air at 1550*, including the reduced
carrier. The playbacks on Saturdays have been absent a few weeks, but
you never know without checking (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6230, Nov 3 at 0557, RHC English JBA on leapfrog mixing
product of 6100 over 6165 another 65 kHz beyond. 6165 is S9+30, 6100
S9+20/30. 6060 also on with humbuzz at S9+30, but no `frog audible on
6140, nor any other combos. 6000 still on at S9+40. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 6030, Nov 3 at 0600, just caught R. Martí before
quitting on extended schedule, temporarily? They also did this last
year. Heavy jamming of course continues, just in case, blocking any
CFVP (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 7157 & 7215, Nov 3 at 0602, centres of lite pulse jamming
still going after weeks. The incompetent DentroCuban Jamming Command
apparently once found some objexionable exile hams there and remains
unrelenting, as if hams could not QSY anywhere. What would CO2KK say?
Isn`t IARU raising a ruckus about this? Now also PJ against nothing on
7335, 7365, 7435; and 7355 strongest mixed with a tone, all R. Martí
frequencies used only at earlier hours (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13638 & 13762, Nov 3 at 1453, weak spurblobs out of RHC 13700
which is S9+10 undermodulated and with F# tone, plus and minus ~62
kHz. Something`s always wrong at RHC. 1513 recheck, all gone (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 17795-17800-17805 DRM, Nov 3 at 1712, TDF with marine
weather for MiniTransAt yacht race, S9 via Maryland SDR, mostly solid,
but lo-fi at usual 8.08 kbps, SNR 20, DRM mode B, Chan 10 kHz
displayed, humale voice in French, 1713 switch to huwoman voice in
French-accented English, 1728 back to male in French but mixes in some
numbers in English; 1732 YL in French but also some English numbers;
not weather now but ordinally up to 50th, presumably race rankings.
1741 seems to be concluding bilingually; 1742 little bits of music,
amid dropouts, a different tune fragment each time, now down to S8-S7,
SNR to 15. 1750 quits modulating but still on air at S6, off by 1758
check. This 17-18 transmission on 17800 is on the displayed DRM
schedule roster under Télédiffusion de France. But beware, still also
shows Radio Martí on 7345 DRM despite its disappearance months ago.

Chris Mackerell, NZ, asks, ``Were you able to decode the data part of
the transmission? Previously the DRMcast contained a data stream of
images and weather maps in the same stream as the audio. The audio was
always decodable, but the pictures weren't. I haven't been able to
check myself yet, so am curious. Maybe they're just audio this time.
73 Chris``

Neither then nor today was I aware of any images. Maybe I don`t know
where to look for them beyond the conventional Kiwi DRM display. Glenn

** SPAIN [and non]. 11670, Nov 3 at 2310, only RHC Spanish to be
heard, // 9535 music. If REE be on there, it`s totally covered; and no
signal on alt. 11685 during token English semihour Wed, VG on 9690, VP
on 11940 & 12030. All checked via Maryland remote (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)
