** CANADA. 300 kHz, Sept 16 at 0622 UT, dash and YIV, 500 watt ND beacon from Island Lake, Manitoba. Believe this be a new one for me. Wikipedia: “Island Lake is a small community in east central Manitoba, Canada. The community is on several islands in Island Lake, which is the 6th largest lake in the province. The community is located 297 kilometers (185 mi) east from Thompson, Manitoba and 610 kilometers northeast of Winnipeg“ near the Ontario border. That makes it 1965 km = 1221 miles from me. Bill Hepburn had reported that this one was to be retained beyond 2026y rather than decommissioned.
218 kHz, Sept 16 at 0626 UT, dash and RL, 975 watt ND beacon from Red Lake, Ontario.
332 kHz, Sept 16 at 0628 UT, dash and QT, 1000 watt ND beacon from Thunder Bay, Ontario. Same time and frequency, IC, 400 watts from Wichita, Kansas, but different pitches. Also two more from USA, q.v.

** CUBA. 13557, 13629, 13770, 13841, trace 13912 approx., Sept 16 at 1358, FM spurblobs out of 13700-AM, RHC; but today these are rather weak, with F# tone but very little or no program modulation; and the one on 13629 produces more mod in AM than FM, as RHC fails again to provide decent FM service; roughly 70-73 kHz intervals above and below. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 9630 & 9650, Sept 16 at 1410, buzzblobs equally on both sides of 9640 RHC, which I conclude is producing them; matching and above line- and other band noise levels. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Larry Will explains further on the WOR iogroup Sept 16 about the Jason we heard on WBCQ:
“Jason Hill runs WBCQ 94.7 “KIXX-FM” (country format) and WXME 780 // W252DW 98.3. WXME has a talk format in the daytime and runs an album rock format at night. Jason’s been working with WBCQ for over 20 years. At one point he was a board operator and did a show called “Squad 51” on WBCQ shortwave c. 2004 in the early days of the 5100/5105/5110/5130 service.
The Timtron show we ran on Saturday at 2300 on Area 51 was actually a rebroadcast from 26 January 2013 which, non-coincidentally, was Timtron at Monticello with Jason as a guest. Lw“ (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
