Glenn Hauser logs March 3, 2019

** CANADA. Correxion: what I meant to say:
332 kHz, March 2 at 0720, dash and QT, a kilowatt NDB from ThunderBay, Ontario. At first I copied it as QE — is their dah a bit curtailed? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) Two more: see USA

** CUBA. 6100, Sunday March 3 at 0728, this and all other RHC frequencies are off. 6100 should have and maybe did emit Esperanto from 0700, finishing early, as confirmed multiple earlier Sundays, rather than at 0800, the previously scheduled standard time for it which is still announced in the sign-on schedule, as copied later Mar 3 from 1602 on 11760 // 15140: 08 to NAm on 6100, 16 to N/C/SAm on 11760 (only!), 2330 to SAm on 15730. The OM announcer also could not escape his first language, Spanish when he uttered “polítiko“ instead of “politíko“ — Esperanto stress is absolutely regular, always on the penultimate sylláble, e.g. also “radío“ without any accent markings needed. Something`s always wrong at Radio Havano Kubo.

BTW, from next Sunday already, March 10, Cuba, as a Running Dog Of Yanqui Imperialism, resumes daylight shifting time of UT -4 on the same early date as America; cannot be coincidental. This will affect some but not all RHC program and frequency scheduling — maybe less so than usual, as when Cuba went off DST last fall, after confusing attempts to resume winter-time scheduling, RHC reverted to some summer-timings, notably English evenings at 01-07 UT instead of 02-08.

BTW2, timeanddate.com shows other peripheral countries under undue American influence, do the same thing March 10: Bahamas, Bermuda, Greenland-Thule Air Base, Haiti, Saint Pierre & Miquelon, Turx & Caicos — and those parts of Canada and Mexico which normally observe DST. In the case of Mexico, it`s border cities only, while most of the rest of the country will not be catching up for another month until April 7, which was the old USA change-date, before legislation passed to impose irrational DST upon us for another month in spring, another week in fall. Europe has been wrestling with whether to abolish it or make it permanent yearound avoiding biyearly resets.

BTW3, daylight CANNOT BE SAVED, only SHIFTED by the clox, as I insist on calling it. Its very name from the outset has been a Big Lie. You may mull that over this week before being forced to accede to it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MALI. 13685, March 3 at 1509, S5-S6 VP talk M&W conversation, // about a second ahead of 15700 CRI English via CUBA. BUT, no 13685 signal at 1536. 13685 has been scheduled as CRI via Bamako, English at 14-16, but this and all other transmissions have been off the air for months. Yesterday March 2, Ivo Ivanov reported some Bamako relays had resumed, and then many others logged, but only one frequency / transmitter at a time instead of two. Nothing audible here on 17630 which would have been // 13685 before 1600, but even if on, unlikely would propagate as nothing else audible on 16m under pathetic propagation conditions. 15125 was first heard yesterday during Arabic, but today at 1639 I have no signal there. Now Ivo summarizes, but the resumption may well continue sporadic:

“China Radio International CRI via Bamako is again on air, but only via one transmitter, instead of two transmitters as follows:
