12600, good at 1447; none in the 9s, 10s, 11s, 13s, 14s, 15s, 16s, 17s, 18s.
At 1524 none at all found, not even 12600

** CUBA. 13750, Dec 4 at 1410, RHC on nonsensical Sunday-only frequency, and this time 9850 is absent, as `Amigos de Cuba` themed mailbag program is starting: no dissing allowed there!
I did not start early enough to find whether 13750 was on 13690 instead before 1400 as last week due to jamming VOA on 13750 daily until 1400. 13750, not 9850 also applied to `En Contacto` at 1435-1451. Manolo keeps promoting the Dec 25 show, repeated Jan 1, which will name all their listener-contactors during 2011y (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CYPRUS. 15240-15265, Dec 4 at 1418, intruding OTH radar, hi pulse rate, presumed from here? Mainly blasting a broadcaster on 15245, i.e. Poland in Russian via Woofferton UK (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** FRANCE [and non]. 7220, Dec 4 at 0615, RFI is back in business, English news, or rather sports segment about football, instead of strike-filling RFI-Musique; but 7390 French service is still in musique. English also JBA on // 9765, but 7220 goes off as usual at 0630, apparently mistaken feed instead of scheduled Hausa. Other Hausa frequency 9805 too weak to be sure of.
17690, Dec 4 at 1421 via GUIANA FRENCH, RFI with music, but then Spanish narration, so this service too is (temporarily?) back to programming instead of RFI-Musique fill. Is the strike over or not? Seems they `roll` it, hitting and missing different services from day to day.
17620, Dec 4 at 1427, however, the French service direct, is still en grève with RFI-Musique, including an ID in English as RFI-Music, then didgeridoo, in laudable eclecticism (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MAURITANIA [and non]. 7245, Dec 4 at 0623, no signal from IGIM, but next tuneby 0628 there it is, chanting, as 250 kW SMG has also just popped on adjacent 7250, taking over from 10 kW usually inaudible Vatican Garden unit (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** TUNISIA. 7375, Dec 4 until 0630* IWT closes abruptly, apparently ex -0627* so reset the timer? IWT = short for the Arabic ID as in WRTH 2011: “Idh`atu-l-Wataniya at-Tunisiya“. Since it`s all in Arabic, why keep referring to it by French name? // 7335 continues, free of co-channel Vatican after 0620 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
