** CUBA. RHC UT July 10: at 0551 Spanish on 6140, 6120 and very poor signal on 6000; in fact it was marred by splatter from much stronger RHC English during music on 6010, // 6060. Cuban Commies vs Cuban Commies!
RHC is still running an extra(?) transmitter in the mornings on 11800, and it is still very distorted, at 1339 July 10 during sports segment. See also RUSSIA. However, at 1342 the big signal on 13780 was missing, tho 13680 and 13760 were nominal.
Is RHC still on the air at mid-day contrary to schedule? Yes, July 10 at 1847 check best on 11760, audible on 13760, and a weak signal probably RHC as before, on 11800 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** INDONESIA. VOI, July 10 at 1327 on 9526-, ID with the usual three frequencies, only one of which applies at any given time, but they never say which; Indonesian Wonders feature about how to get from Jakarta to the north coast of Java to enjoy eating fried eels; 1332 into next show, Miscellany. Fair signal with no QRM, but summer QRN (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** RUSSIA. VOR, Khabarovsk, 12000, July 10 at 1338 in Chinese, motorboating, QRMing itself. No RHC, which should wisely keep away from this mess, but when will they eliminate 12000 from their morning frequency announcements? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOUTH AFRICA. 11690, good signal July 10 at 0544 with VTC fill-music loop, no announcements in next few minutes, instead of scheduled R. Okapi for CONGO DR via Meyerton. Loss of audio feed happens fairly often with this 0400-0600 transmission; why? What a waste (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TUNISIA. RTT, 7275 with Arabic music at 0555 July 10, but open carrier on 7335. The latter plugged in the audio for abrupt join in progress at 0558 to become //. 0600 timesignal and presumed news.
Both frequencies are registered for 0400-0800, and Aoki believes that too, but their true spans never really match. The WRTH A09 update is closer, so while we are at it, full schedule from that:
