** CUBA [and non]. 11750, Feb 11 at 1421, I am hearing some singing weakly under always weak RHC. I had dreams of SLBC Sri Lanka, the 300 kW Ekala transmitter, but this does not start until 1500 (HFCC) or 1530 (Aoki) or 1530 (Trincomalee, WRTH) or 1630 (Trinco, EiBi) —  instead it must be R. Farda via Biblis, GERMANY, …

** CHINA [and non]. 6145, Feb 7 at 1522, Chinese station has het on weaker 6144.0 where no modulation detectable.
