** CUBA [and non]. 9830, April 9 at 1248 looking for reported new frequency of RHC, not heard, nor 9540, but yes heard on 9850 and 9550. Then checking higher bands at 1250+, confirmed on 11760, 11860, 12010, 15230, 17580, 17730; Not heard on 11750, 13780, 15340, 15370.
At 1315, 9550 still audible vs CRI Vietnamese; no 9830 or 9850; 15240 and 15370 now on, plus mixing product at 1322 on 15400.
At 1329 copy new frequency announcement and repeated at 1400; for a while they had been omitting fq announcements: 17580 & 17730 -15; 15230 -15; 13-15 on 15340 & 15370; 11760 & 11860 & 12010 & 9830 -15; 9550 at 13-15. Presumably the unspecified times ending at 15 do start at 11. No mention of 6000 or of 9850 at any time. But at 1331 I am still hearing 9550, and now JBA on 9830 with Asian CCI. At 1404, still on 9550 with CCI, 9830 now audible but with RTTY QRM. 9830, great choice, Arnie! Not only RTTY, but also non-jammer CNR1 Beijing 572 site thruout; Romania in Arabic from 1400, and Iran in Russian from 1420, per Aoki (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1716, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** FRANCE [non]. 17660, April 9 at 1255, RFI Afrique IDs in passing until 1300*. This one is 342 degrees via SOUTH AFRICA, good for US too from 1200 in French (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGESET)
** KUWAIT. 15540, April 9 at 1948, R. Kuwait in English with PSA from Ministry of Interior warning to be careful at game parks (I think they mean video games, not animals!), then a novelty song; fair (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOUTH CAROLINA [non non]. 21600, April 9 at 1949, WHRI with Overcomer, tho not BS talking at the moment, ex-17730 for the first day, and // 15770 WRMI not synchronized. Huge signal on 21600 presumably aimed NW, and the OSOB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) See also USA: WRMI
** SWEDEN [non]. 11875, Wednesday April 9 at 1953, poor signal in African language with French influence. Aoki shows it`s IBRA Radio (R. Ibrahim, but surely Christian, not Moslem), which is in Malinke at 1945-2000 on Wednesday and Thursday (Jula other days; 1930-1945 in Moore or Tamajeq in a different pattern; and 1900-1930 daily in Fulfulde); 300 kW, 182 degrees from Woofferton UK (Glenn hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 17530, April 9 at 1951, peuple speaking French in variety of accents, including Creolish; maybe people-on-the-street interviews from VOA Greenville; meanwhile, 15730 is open carrier, since it doesn`t start until 2000 while 17530 starts at 1930.
13605 & 11930, April 9 at 1952 check, R. Martí via Greenville, detectable but not readable vs wall-of-noise jamming, incomparably weaker than the bigsig French frequencies, 15730 & 17530, Altho azimuths are different, hard to believe GB is running full power on the Martí frequencies, which is of course totally necessary when confronting jamming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9690, April 9 at 1249, WRMI-13 is back here with BS after straying to 7455 yesterday morning, too bad for India. Is BS aware of this unlucky number?? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
