** CUBA. RHC chex UT July 7: at 0545, Spanish on 11760, 6140, 6120, 6000 about topic H. Only 6060 and 6010 in English.
5025, R. Rebelde was nothing but a big hum at 0558. Wiggle that patchcord! Next check at 1249 before fadeout, back to normal.
At 1252, RHC best on 6180, item about the Malecón for a change, also on 6000, 5965. At 1311, just barely modulated on 11800, much better on 11760. Otherwise normal on 13, 15 MHz channels.
`Lite` DCJC pulse jamming on 9780, July 7 at 1256, much less than the barrage against Martí on 9805; victim on 9780 a Chinese collision, i.e. RTI vs ChiCom, with KNLS English also buried in the mix. I recall that R. República used 9780 for a while in the afternoon via Sackville, so the Cuban jamming is probably a relic of that unless RR has come back to 9780 elsewhen (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EAST TURKISTAN. 15445, July 7 at 0555 in Russian mentioning the letters “CRI“ in English, web address? Then postlude. This is 308 degrees from Kashi. We should keep a close ear also on Urümqi transmissions in case the rioting there against ChiCom imperialism has an effect on them. Tip: allow any separatist movement to succeed peacefully and be done with it. Also makes more radio countries (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GERMANY [non]. Not much incoming from Europe, July 7 at 1359 but on 15510 noticed VOR IS mixing with some other music; after 1400 only DW sounder and Russian. This matches scheduling of VOR via Samara until 1400, then DW via Rampisham (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** INDONESIA. VOI, 9525.9, July 7 at 1301 transitioning from Indonesian to English, with “sound of dignity“ slogan. Fair signal today, no hum or het! 1302 prolog to regular Tuesday hookup with RRI Banjarmasin, YL host in Jakarta conversing with Banj guy whose name I have never been able to copy. This series is called “Exotic Indonesia“, so I wonder if they will eventually wander on to some other region? I believe he said the time was 6 o`clock, so perhaps this was live on the previous English broadcast at 1000 UT. Also gave his e-mail address and mobile (phone) number. Finally 1305:30 into newscast starting with a court ruling about elexions. Unfortunately, too busy bandscanning to stay for rest of hour; should try to get it on webcast.
Ron Howard also heard this and points out that the presidential elexion is July 8, possibly leading to more or extended SW transmissions (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** RUSSIA. VOR, 12000, July 7 at 1312 in Chinese talk; carrier unstable; no RHC co-channel. 1350 playing Bach, and carrier almost motorboating (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SPAIN. REE at 1331 July 7, just barely audible on 21570 and less so on 21610 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A [non]. VOA, 9760 via Philippines, July 7 at 1345 with report on Michael Jackson; correspondent sounded like Dan Robinson so wondered if he had a new beat away from Congress? But outroed as Michael Sullivan in Los Ángeles. They do sound quite a bit alike (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 13640, open carrier at 1315 July 7; probably GUIANA FRENCH not having turned it off at 1230* after Spanish non (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ###
