Thanks ROR!!! I must say that your QSL policy is OUTSTANDING! Tip of the old pirate hat to you!

I'm getting music fading in and out rather quickly here at 2221 UTC. Man announcer I think at 2222 UTC, then music again. Fading in and out of the noise floor but peaking at S2/S3

Thanks for the ID Chris S! The signal is rising in and out of the noise too fast to get a good ID, although I can hear the announcer each time. Mostly UNID European pop tunes, but nice to hear any Euro at all these days :)

Happy Hanukkah to you Mr. Goldberg from a pirate Gentile!

Weak here in Western MA at 2339 UTC, but above the noise. UNID music, then man with live song intro at 2342 UTC into rock tune. It does not sound like Bon Scott's voice though....
AC/DC tunes at 2347 and 2351 UTC...audio sounds a bit thin, but signal peaking nicely between fades at S4-S5.
2356 UTC Another AC/DC tune
Listened back a dozen times here after last song played, but no ID heard...
Thanks for the AC/DC program tonight! Need some kick ass tunes to shake the flu out of the system

She took her orders from Cuba through a shortwave radio that spewed out 150 numbers she decoded into Spanish-language text.

It would seem to me that the ongoing loggings of Spanish spy numbers stations indicated the prescence of other spies here in the US subsequent to the capture of Ana Montes. Are they still here, or will there be a recall? Does this new era of US-Cuban relations mean that these stations are soon to be discontinued? What does this mean for the future of Radio Habana? Will they continue to spew anti-American rhetoric or will they tone it down? Questions to consider while enjoying a nice Cuban cigar!
