Glenn Hauser logs July 13, 2021

** CUBA. 13761 & 13639 approx., July 13 at 1447, weak spurblobs with F# tones, no readable modulation even in FM mode; plus/minus ~61 kHz from 13700-AM which is only S7-S9 and undermodulated. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 7435 & 7335, July 13 at 0643, R. Martí is again on late, very strong but now jamming audible under; also 6030 weaker; due to the unrest in Cuba.

Dan Robinson, a critic of his former employer, suggests that at long last OCB has fulfilled its mission to stir up trouble inside Cuba; Radio Free Asia still working on their targets:

“It was no secret that Radio Marti (before TV Marti) was specifically designed to encourage anti-Castro government feelings in Cuba. […] So, what I am saying is that in a way, the purpose, going back to the earliest days of Radio Marti, has been achieved — riots/unrest in the street directed at the post-Fidel Castro government. It’s as simple as that…“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KASHMIR [non]. 15170, July 13 another Tuesday so time for another weekly Kashmir Civitas clandestine via apparent ROMANIA. Starts at 1500 with S9/+25 signal into UTwente SDR, in Urdu but English term “foreign occupation“, strumming underneath, mentions Kashmiri. 1525 checked direct and no signal here. 1528 Salaam Aleikum, and azad, azad. 1528 very abrupt IRRS-style cut to blues song by woman in English, “If you don`t want me, it`s up to you—“ and cut off air at 1529* (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

All times UT! Circa 1700 I`m listening to KUCO 90.1 Edmond OKC on a household radio when it`s getting some talk CCI unlike that from KHCC KS especially at midday minimum.
