I thought I had seen something about RHC having a harmonic around there, but I wasn’t sure. They are well know for poorly maintained equipment so it’s not surprising. Recently Radio Rebelde (also from Cuba) has been heard on its harmonic of 10080 kHz stronger than the fundamental (5025 kHz)!

Songs are identified with Shazam if needed. I usually use KiwiSDR receivers. Reception from my QTH is using a Sony ICF-2010 with a 25 meter (80 ft) longwire antenna in a tree.

Cuba got hammered by Hurricane Ian this past fall and is still rebuilding. They don't get parts for those old Eastern Bloc transmitters these day's, either. RHC is up the proverbial creek without a paddle. Will we ever hear "Mambo Number 5" blasting on 10 different frequencies at once, again?
