Sat 1700, Sat 2100, Sun 1330, Sun 2100:
** CAYMAN ISLANDS. 28428 USB, March 13 at 1844, ZF2VE with contest contacts; seemed OSOB until ECUADOR showed up, q.v. QRZ.com: ZF2VE Cayman Islands flag Cayman Islands, Gerald B “Gerry” Hull, 100 Antrim Road, Hancock, NH 03449, Cayman Islands
Page managed by W1VE [= sameham]. Operation from the fantastic QTH of Stan, K5GO/ZF9CW, 100w only from Cayman Brac. QSL Via LOTW only. 73, Gerry. His ham radio story, originally from Halifax NS: https://www.qrz.com/db/W1VE (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CUBA. 5025, March 13 at 0657, R. Rebelde is OFF: connected with start of DST as a running dog of Yanqui imperialism? But it`s 24/7. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba. BTW it leaves a local HNL of S9 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CUBA. 6060, March 13 at 0701* tune-in a few notes of RHC theme and cut off. Might have been about to start Esperanto one hour earlier than before. 6100 still on but S9+30 of dead air; but eventually starts “2nd hour“ of English, “top news of the week“, some distortion. No others still on. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CUBA. 15140, Sunday March 13 at 1507, RHC Esperanto at S9/+20 // 11760 at S9. So this outsending has successfully earlied an hour due to irrelevant local DST (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CUBA. 15140, March 13 at 1922, RHC English hour earlier now, S9+10 into Missouri but annoying humbuzz. Something`s always wrong at RHC. The next English propaganda hour normally moves one hour later than earlier when DST start, 23-24 instead of 22-23, maybe still on 11880; while the next2 hour on 5040 at 00-01, moves an hour earlier so it coincide with 11880. We shall see/hear (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** ECUADOR. 28395 USB, March 13 at 1847, JBA Spanish at first, then HC4CS, Armundo?, 100 watts; next contact in English. HC4CS Ecuador flag Ecuador, ARMANDO CERVANTES, KM. 86 VIA SANTA ELENA, PUERTO LOPEZ, AYAMPE, EC 131952, Ecuador. Many illustrations: https://www.qrz.com/lookup/hc4cs (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6910 USB, March 12 at 2315, JBA sounds like someone reading a document or speech, can`t make it out. Many reports here of the occasional pirate WFDR, an FDR speech from 1939 as war was previously brewing in Europe… https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,94276.0.html (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** OKLAHOMA. For the record as of March 13, day and night, these formerly semi/local ND beacons are still silent: 255 SW StillWater; 341 EI EnId; 515 PN PoNca City. That leaves 350 RG, Will RoGers World Airport, OKC as the main Okie still running. But the others have gone and come before, so you never know (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)
** SOUTH AMERICA. Trans-equatorial ham DX on 10 meters again, not very strong signals in contest and no CW beacons heard, per QRZ.com:
28345 USB, March 12 at 2126, PY5AYF, CQ contest. Not listed.
28345 USB, March 12 at 2127, WP3B calling CQ South America. WP3B Puerto Rico flag Puerto Rico, NELSON SANTIAGO, HC 2 BOX 6419, LARES, PR 00669-9760, USA. Lots of Puerto Rico net and other stuff: https://www.qrz.com/lookup/wp3b This one not T-E and not SAm, but far enough away to be F2 prop
28442 USB, March 12 at 2128, PY2CX, CQ contest: PY2CX Brazil flag Brazil, MAURICIO PITORRI, VERONA 174, 02348-050 -, SAO PAULO – SP, Brazil
28388 USB, March 12 at 2129, CE6CGX contacting a VE2 CE6CGX Chile flag Chile, CARLOS GUARDIA SOTO, PARCELA 24 EL TESORO, CASILLA 10, CORREO TRAIGUEN 4739001, Chile — lots of certificates
28370 USB, March 12 at 2310, CW2R in contest CW2R Uruguay flag Uruguay, Uruguay, Page managed by CX1RL Lookups: 2232. This call sign record has incomplete details: operator name, city/town. Other details regarding this record are not shown while we wait for additional data.
CX1RL Uruguay flag Uruguay, CARLOS MORALES, CW2R, MALDONADO GF25MC,
20.000, Uruguay — with some photos (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2129 monitoring: confirmed Saturday March 12 from 2045 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, VG to nearby MO SDR. From next week, one hour earlier from nominal 1930v UT.
Also confirmed UT Sunday March 13 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, only S7/S9 into Lubbock SDR; S8/S9+10 direct but not solid in noise level. Otherness on 7780 is axually a bit better S9/+20 making me wonder if the NE/NW antennas have already been swapped, but not the programming. This airing stays at 0030.
Also confirmed UT Sunday March 13 at 0429 about 11 minutes into on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, so started circa 0418, S9+10 direct vs high noise level. From next week nominal 0315 UT start.
Also confirmed Sunday March 13 at 1350 the 1330 on WMRI Europe, 9670 via Channel 292, Germany: inaudible at UTwente, but audible at Carlow, Eire SDR, S9/+15 showing +20 Hz carrier offset. If this change to 1230 March 27, will it again collide with Vietnamese clandestine? Next:

** U S A. 15770, Sat Mar 12 at 2124, music on WRMI and not // 11720 VOA, so as expected, `Flashpoint Ukraine` not on weekends when nothing ever happens. From Monday it`s moving to 1935-2000 on 15770 and presumably still not on any of our own VOA frequencies.
7780, R. Svoboda in Russian is expanding to two hours at 0200-0400, but not tonight, English presumably Slovakia on WRMI after 0300. To be daily since not specified as M-F? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
