CUBA   6000, March 12 at 0014 UT, RHC is S=9+20dB but JBM and suptorted in
English, also some Spanish crosstalk; then English mod faded up a bit, and
it's // clear undermodulated English on 6145 kHz, S=9+20dB. Last night RHC

At 0129 UT, both 6145 and 6000 kHz feature Arnie Coro and both

hum, tone and crackle, otherwise excellent.
Something's always wrong at RadioCuba.

DENMARK    Radio 208 - the Rock of Copenhagen, March 25.

Hello  x.x.
Thanks very much for your reception report to Radio208. I am pleased to
verify your report; please find attached a Radio208 eQSL.

Radio208 is a music station playing songs from the period 1964-1984.
The main focus is on classic rock, punk/new wave, alternative and
progressive music.

Radio208 commenced broadcasting on 1440 kHz on December 17th 2019 from
Ishoj, in the southern suburbs of Copenhagen - with 60 Watts for the first
24 hours. From December 18th the power was increased to 300 Watts and on
January 9th 2020 the power was increased to 500 Watts. No further power
increase is possible, since the license is for 500 Watts. The transmitter
is an old 1 kW CCA sender from 1974. At present the power has been reduced
to 200 Watts, but hopefully Radio208 will be back with 500 Watts soon.

So far more than 200 reception reports have been received from DXers from
most parts of Europe; mostly from Germany (33%), Sweden (17%), Finland
(14%) and the Netherlands (7%) - but also from Italy, Denmark, the UK,
Ireland, Norway, Belgium, France, Spain, Poland, Ukraine, Austria, Czech
Republic, Hungary and Switzerland.

The aerial is a sloping dipole 2x50 m from a height of approx. 73 m.
Later on a short wave frequency (5805 kHz) will be added.

Radio208 can also be heard via Internet streaming from

Subject: SWR Muehlacker Mittelwelle.

Muehlacker Tagblatt von heute March 11:

<https://muehlacker-tagblatt.de/region-muehlacker/muehlacker/sender-
verein-hofft-auf-eine-wende/>

Und noch folgender Link:

Muehlacker.php>

Auf dieser Seite sind unten einige interessante Gutachten zur Sicherheit
verlinkt. Sie sind sehr ausfuehrlich - auch mit einigen Bildern. Das
Sicherheitskonzept ist schon sehr aufwendig. Die SDR / SWR Mitarbeiter
hatten oft mitgeteilt welche Sicherheits-Uebungen zu leisten sind, welche
sie regelmaessig durchfuehren mussten. Da kann man sich schon vorstellen,
dass allein deshalb der SWR froh ist, wenn er die Anlage abwickeln kann.

PNG  {BOUGAINVILLE}  3325 kHz  NBC Bougainville, 0858-1004 & 1027-1040 UT,
March 23. Reception above the norm; weather forecast; 0901 UT, NBC news;
all items dealing with Coronavirus/COVID-19, except for item about the
supreme court considering case about the constitution; promos for NBC TV;
segments with pop songs (Elton John - "Sacrifice," USA for Africa -
"We Are The World," Michael Jackson - "Heal The World," etc.); many
segments about  Coronavirus/COVID-19 (schools suspended, etc.). Very
enjoyable to hear them at this decent level. Later at 1117 UT, was only
hearing Voice of Indonesia, with no NBC underneath (early off?).

3325 kHz  NBC Bougainville, at 1123-1202* UT on March 24. Another day of
above average reception, even with a lot of QRN (static); 1123-1134 UT,
very excited/impassioned preacher in Pidgin; mentioning "God in our
nation," "Coronavirus," "Papua New Guinea," "Our great nation," "God looks
into the hearts of men," "One nation, one people," etc.; Coronavirus PSA
("Always wash your hands," "Everyone is responsible," "This message
provided for by the Department of Health and NBC"); pop song (same a
yesterday with Elton John - "Sacrifice"); 1159 UT, start of the NBC news
in English. Nice reception today due to Voice of Indonesia having no
audio, so after NBC went off the air, was only hearing the VOI carrier.

SPAIN   REE Programming Suspended?

I recorded several hours of REE on 9690 kHz yesterday{March 16} starting
around 21:30 UTC here in New Brunswik-CAN with a powerhouse signal in an
effort to capture the English program previously broadcast at 23:00 UT.

Not only was there no English (or other foreign language programs) it
appeared that the Spanish programming was a relay of a domestic RNE
channel. Only IDs for Radio Nacional de Espana and time checks for the
Canary Islands. So perhaps, for the time being and due to the pandemic
crisis, REE's own programing, at least over SW but probably streaming too
(I didn't check), is suspended. By the way, the RNE programming seems not
to be all doom and gloom; some laughter and happy music, too.
