** CUBA. 5040, July 1 at 0525, RHC English during mailbag is JBM and suptorted rather than often the best modulated outlet; 6100 is loudest S9+40 and slightly distorted; 6165 is S9+20/30 but sounds much weaker due to undermodulation; 6000 is S9+20/30 too by very suptorted. Wiggle those patchcords! At least all four frequencies are on; as the Cuban Fifth, 6060, seems gone for good. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

“Southwest Florida Online – Sunday Morning News From LaBelle, Florida for Hendry and Glades County and the Lake Okeechobee region. Don Browne, editor. Friday, June 28, 2019
The newly constructed high power shortwave station and gigantic fully rotatable antenna system is funded by World’s Last Chance, LLC, a Wyoming corporation and religious ministry headed by Galal P. Doss, a former Seventh-Day Adventist and wealthy cosmetics company owner from Egypt.
Galal Doss has a track record of making bizarre prophecies, anti-Catholic videos, and claims the earth is flat (watch one of the organization’s “flat earth proof” videos above) and says calendars should be lunar based on the moon phases and their interpretation of the Bible. Posted by Don Browne at 2:41 PM “
Stephen Michael Kellat, an IRS employee, replies:
“After calling the charity verification hotline at IRS and looking through the database hosted by the Wyoming Secretary of State, this group appears to not be organized as if it were a church under Wyoming law and they’re not on the roster of organizations at IRS for tax deductibility of donations. Comparing its organization papers against those of more traditional churches show some big differences as World’s Last Chance has a general LLC incorporation as if you weren’t sure if you were going to open restaurant or start manufacturing widgets. If you had any concerns about the group’s tax situation, you can always fill out a Form 3949-A (Information Referral) found online at https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f3949a.pdf and send it in to the Fresno processing campus for the triage team there to review“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
