** NETHERLANDS [non]. 9925, UT Sun Aug 16 at 0146 check, noting but a JBA carrier from The “Mighty“ KBC, 125 kW via GERMANY, as propagation is very degraded: nothing much but US and Cuban signals on 7 and higher bands. WWV reported before and after this: “Solar-terrestrial indices for 15 August follow. Solar flux 89 and estimated planetary A-index …

** AUSTRALIA. 12065 // 12085, Aug 15 at 1318, R. Australia is slightly stronger on 12065 than 12085, both poor-fair, the reverse of the usual situation, since 12085 is aimed toward Alaska and 12065 toward Asia/Europe; antenna swap? Or strange propagation with major geomag storm and K-index of 7! I should have compared on two different receivers whether there was …

** CUBA. 9505-9565, Aug 14 at 0014, RHC 9535 transmitter is surrounded by horrible big buzz field equally on both sides, and obviously the source. Not so much immediately adjacent, but roughly equally spread 9505-9530 and 9540-9565, tapering off at the edges. RRI 9520 Romanian is strong as usual, but can still hear the Cubuzz under it; weak Iran carriers …

** EGYPT. 12070, Aug 13 at 0042, R. Cairo is S8 with Arabic music, and not very distorted, so that`s an improvement; but 11935 is JBA at S1-S2; 9965 is S9+ with whine and no other modulation; 9315 at 0047 is open carrier/dead air at S9+. Tarek Zeidan in Cairo has forwarded complaints about these to station and may meet …

** CUBA. 6100 & 5040, Aug 12 at 0506, only RHC English frequencies with sufficient signals on the PL-880 to overcome noisy computer which is running later than usual. Forget 6000, 6060 and 6165 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CUBA [non]. 5950, Aug 12 at 1112, WRMI with AWR Cuban service in Spanish, algo “de la Biblia“ mixed …

** CUBA [non]. 5950, Aug 12 at 2320, JBA carrier on presumed new AWR service from and to Cuba via WRMI. Assuming it`s really on the air, must be on a hi-angle, short-range antenna just right for max signal into Cuba, not here. At least I detect no jamming, either. 5850 WRMI on its NW antenna is much better but …

** ALASKA. 7355, Aug 11 at 1200, KNLS is opening English hour, fairly good signal at first, unlike many mornings when it`s inaudible (if on; beamed westward from Anchor Point anyway, so anything here is bonus). Lucy Grant host for the Tuesday show of `Alaska Calling`, introduces co-host Rob Scobey; they are both relentlessly expressive, upbeat and clearly enunciating for …

** CUBA. 820, Aug 10 at 0135, harmonious duet in Spanish, as good as WBAP which must be in a fade, on the NRD-545 and fixed N-S wire antenna, but better than on PL-880 which I can rotate to null WBAP. Then “that Cuban sound“ M&W announcers in scripted text, mentioning Cuba. Meanwhile, not // 4765 Progreso or 5025 Rebelde, …

** ARGENTINA. 11710.44, Aug 7 at 0032, carrier here presumed variable RAE vs crackling spur circa 11713 from BRAZIL, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** BOLIVIA. 6134.8, Aug 7 at 0048, as soon as I tune in, another frequent ID from “Radio Santa Cruz, La Primera“, fair signal.
