English from Mali imminent

Reminder that ORTM`s weekly English is nigh; last Saturday, Manuel timed it between 1850 and 1906 on 5995. Several should be trying to get it recorded via remote receiver if not direct. (Glenn Huser)

** BRAZIL [and non]. 6180, March 16 at 0201, oh oh, horrible head-on collision between RNA in Brazuguese ID, and CRI relay via CUBA in Chinese, making a fast SAH; indeed no RNA on 11780 tonight; by 0226 it`s the one on top. No doubt messes up both CRI relay hours 0100- 0300. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba — in …

** CUBA. In previous report, even I was confused in assessing the RHC situation. Let`s try again with this graf corrected to replace it: 9720, Tuesday March 12 at 2145, is NOT on the air, despite Sunday having moved English-allegedly-to-Africa into the 21-22 hour instead of 22-23. But today at *2154 the RHC IS starts playing, until 2201 morphing into …
