** CUBA. 5025, April 30 at 0548, R. Rebelde is on with music, and so is 5040, RHC English, plus the Cuban Four on 49m. You never know whether 5025 will be running or not, but when not, it`s assumed to be because the same transmitter and/or allegedly NVIS antenna is needed for RHC 15 kHz away.
6000, May 1 at 0105, RHC is absent from one English frequency but inhabiting the other, 6165. Not rechecked until 0142 when 6000 is also on, with clix (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CYPRUS [non]. 9955, UT Thursday May 1 at 0145, WRMI starts the repeat of `European News Net` from Famagusta; number one story there this week is a controversy concerning the British rock band Deep Purple --- yawn. Pulse jamming ranges from inaudible to annoying (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1140, May 1 at 0134 UT, station with 405 area code, and promo for Perry Broadcasting, which mean`s it`s certainly KRMP OKC, a daytimer. Official FCC sunset for April, still in effect for this zone is 0100 UT; in May it will only be 0130 UT; June & July the latest at 0145 UT. So they are cheating --- but wait, they do have a PSSA:
of 6 watts yearound, but this is no 6 watts, more like full daytime power of 1 kW ND, for an extra bihour, until 0300 UT in April, 0330 UT in May, 0345 UT in June & July --- but what good is 6 watts vs 50 kW XEMR Monterrey, which is presumably the one already QRMing it here with 1 kW, and making a SAH of 78/minute = 1.3 Hz? (XEG is in on 1050). (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU. 5980, May 1 at 0100, R. Chaski carrier with some musical modulation at 0109 to cutoff at 0109:53* which is eleven seconds later than 48 hours ago (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SRI LANKA. 11905, May 1 at *0114:11, SLBC carrier on, very poor with flutter; 0114:47 music starts; timesignal ends at 0115:19.5 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
