** CUBA. 11950, July 15 at 2201, RHC on early, undermodulated S9+10, seems like live speech by some Commie, apparently a `Mesa Redonda` special event an hour earlier than usual, since not // 11760 et al., and 6000 JBA also seems same as 11950. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 7379.241, July 15 at 2222, RHC French auto-knocked way off frequency from 7380, S9+10; as happens sporadically here or below 15370 or 13740, presumably same transmitter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NIGERIA. 7254.94, July 15 at 0551, VON with a ballad in English, “I`m not afraid —“ something, segment repeating at 0554, 0556 after pauses; 0557.5 cut to usual drumming and flutish IS, S9+20/30 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1230, July 15 at 0038 UT, Oh2, WBBZ Ponca City must be off again, no strong signal this long before sunset; or is that its carrier now with growing graveyard skywave? Yes, it is! Legal ID at ToH 0100 then back to dead air.
Meanwhile I have been walking around the block with the PL-880 on this frequency trying to track source of high line noise level. It`s slightly CCW from N/S with a sharp null (which should be occupied by WBBZ), and little change from different sides, signifying it`s radiating from some distance away.
1230, WBBZ is back in business, S9+20 by 2225 check July 15 with rock music, “Sunny 1230“ slogan. At least not “Sunny 104.7“ this time (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
