** CUBA. 13637 & 13763 approx., Oct 11 at 1414, FMish weak S3
spurblobs from S9+10 RHC 13700-AM, plus/minus ~63 kHz. With signature
F# above Cmiddle tones. Welcome back! Despite almost daily morningly
bandscans, nonesuch noted for months. Last time a search hits on
``spurblob 13700`` was my report of July 19 & 16. I knew they could do
it! Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15230, Oct 11 at 2218, S8-S9 of dead air from RHC, where
something`s always wrong; while 15370 in Spanish is S9+10/20 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MARTINIQUE. 18134.4-USB, Oct 11 at 2214, FM4LV keeps repeating ID
only with different fonetix, as if in some contest; see UNIDENTIFIED.
So no doubt about it except whether it`s really the caller or the
callee. No replies heard. His qrz.com reveals no details beyond name
and QSL only via a W3 manager, not even Where in MQ: ``FM4LV
Martinique flag Martinique, Gérard LUCE``; but does illustrate his
nice QSL of six ladies in elaborate costumes:

Now no need to jump thru hoops to get one (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PANAMA. 18133.2-USB, Oct 11 at 2204, HP3SS discussing remote
control setups so others from abroad can operate from his QTH in
Panamá; sounds like an American. QRZ.com info: ``HP3SS Panama flag
Panama, Robby Robertson, Volcán, Panamá. I have been living in Panama
since October 2015. I operated as HP3/VY2SS for almost year while I
waited for my Panama call. It doesn't normally take that long. I live
in Volcan, Chiriquí Province. I am at 4550 ft ASL. Temp is always 23C
and I like it here. I enjoy contesting and DX`` (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** SAO TOME E PRINCIPE. 12030.055V, Oct 11 at 0627 French talk, JBA
yet the SSOB. Is low latitude propagation from VOA Pinheira relay,
French 0600-0629 daily. This site often significantly off-frequency,
does not speak well for USAGM engineering. V indicates it`s also
audibly wavering, while a small v would merely indicate varies but
steady at the moment (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Mon Oct 11 at 2200, token English from REE says main
topic will be part 2 about US/Spain relations in Cold War, including
the SAC bombing incident. Geomag disturbance predicted not hit yet as
this holds up well S8-S9, also audible backwards on 15520 but 11940
blocked by wideband FMish splash maybe local (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Glenn Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330, Oct 11 at 0622, WBCQ WLCR is gone again, no signal
while these remain VG: 9265 WINB, 9395 & 9455 & 9955 WRMI. 9330 still
gone at 2223 Oct 11 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (7489.9v), Oct 11 at 2330 after semi-UBMP repeat, WBCQ
webcast plays national spot commercial for McDonalds` Breakfasts, then
immediately `Camp Constitution Radio` on an anti-vax rant which he
expects will get him banned from You Tube. Does McD corporate know
what it is really sponsoring here? Assuming CCR set this up, the price
for a single spot in terms of domestic radio could well pay for the
entire semihour program`s SW airtime (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7505, Oct 11 at 0105, again no signal from WRNO (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 18157-USB, Oct 10 at 2213, pileup after a DX station. US
hams keep blasting their own calls and nothing else time and again
over each other. I withhold IDing them. Once in the mess, I
tentatively hear a weak HC2+ call from Ecuador, maybe the target. This
is fun? Another pileup on 18160-USB. The F2 MUF was way up with lots
of 28 MHz TA contacts NAm/Europe blacklined on DX Map but nothing much
here, not even 10m beacons (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. See MARTINIQUE, PANAMA. Higher in the 18 MHz band,
pileups as there must be some kind of contest, maybe not DX, mostly US
& Canadians repeating their calls over and over, apparently hoping
someone will reply without even saying CQ or QRZ --- that would gobble
up valuable milliseconds. From about 18154 to 18165, October 11 at
2210-2215, stations spaced at fraxion of kHz intervals, making for not
only CCI but lots of adjacent SSB QRM (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
