** CUBA. Correxion: first frequency in this report 13464 was typo; should have read 13564, fixed: 13564, 13632, 13768, 13836 approx., Feb 12 at 1509, extremely distorted spurblobs out of 13700-AM at ~68 kHz intervals, as always at this time, destroying `Sonido Cubano` music show. 15140 fundamental is much less distorted. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CUBA. 6100, Feb 18 at 0642, RHC English is OFF this frequency but remains on 6060, 6000, 5040 VG and maybe JBA 9700. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CUBA. 13276-trace, 13345-trace, 13425, 13489, 13561, 13629; 13771, 13842, 13911, 13983, 14057-trace, 14125-trace, Feb 18 from 1456, extremely distorted spurblobs out of 13700-AM transmitter. Not in the order tuned and peaks may have shifted slightly over the few minutes. They are very amorphous, the extreme ones only traceable by their F# tones; even the strongest, closest ones cannot be pinned down to the kHz, but intervals for starters are roughly 71 kHz. The two outer fringers do work out nicely to about 6 x 70.66 to 70.83 kHz. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CUBA. 6180, Feb 19 at 0241, S9/+10 open carrier/dead air on CRI relay and no ZY audible under, nor any mod at all from relay unlike last time.
5910, Feb 19 at 0303, exactly same S9+10 dead air from successor CRI relay frequency. No sig detectable on x2 = 11820, but not surprising considering RHC fundamentals 11670 & 11850 achieve no more than JBA carriers. However at 0433, 5910 now good but somewhat undermodulated during Yue song. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CUBA. 4747.5 & 4782.5 kHz approx., Feb 19 at 0248, matching JBA extremely distorted music spurblobs, minus/plus ~17.5 kHz out of // 4765 Radio Progreso. Both QRMing CODAR, more of that on the lower side. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** KURDISTAN [non]. 11530, Feb 18 at 1530, weak signal presumed Dengê Welat via FRANCE, and even weaker on 11540 presumed the Turkish jammer which DW has for the moment escaped. Last time I checked, they were both on 11540, nothing on 11530 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** SAO TOME. 9550, Feb 18 at 0636, VOA news magazine in English is VG S8-S9, // weaker 6080+ and both listed same site at 06-07. Strange I had not noticed 9550 before, sked for entire B20 season, 100 kW at 124 degrees, while 6080 is 100 kW at azimuth 0. Apparently in HFCC that means due north rather than non-direxional, altho the ND term is not used there, while it is in full Aoki/NDXC for some other entries. Anyhow 9550 is closer to off-the-back to here (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

WOR 2074 confirmed, UT Fri Feb 18 at 0130 on WRMIs: 5850 VG S9+30; 7780 VG S6-S9 to Maine SDR, S7-S9 but noisy to UTwente SDR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Feb 19 at 0250-0255: 531(2), 684(2), 693, 747, 774, 819*, 846*, 855, 882(2), 891, 909, 999(2), 1089, 1125, 1152, 1215 kHz. Not in the order tuned. Notably missing, 621 usual presumed Canary Islands.
*819 unusual to hear anything; in Europe only 100 watts in Holland and 1 kW in Trieste, but there`s 300 kW in Egypt, 10/30/60 kW in Mauritius/Sudan/Iran, all per WRTH 2021 page 528.
*846 notably present now, despite as I frequently outpoint, in Europe only low-powers, and it`s too early for Kiritimati. 846 possibly 20 kW from Sa`udi or UAE or 50 kW from Iran. Not a single African listed (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
UNIDENTIFIED. 9608.52-LSB approx., Feb 18 at 0638, JBA 2-way in Spanish INTRUDERs (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
