Radio Havana 6950 AM 1235 UTC 21 Nov 2020
« on: November 21, 2020, 1240 UTC »
A very strong signal from RHC on 6950 AM at 1235 UTC, sounds parallel to 6000.  Another screwup by the RHC technical staff, or are they secretly pirate radio enthusiasts?  :)

Looks like Pedro punched 6950 instead of 9650 into the transmitter.

1258 I have it very strongly, too.  There was a pirate relaying Hannity recently, perhaps the pirate is abiding by the equal-time rule  ;D

Also here at 1255 UTC with an S9+10 signal and IS/ID at 1300 UTC. Interesting that they are still using the same ID as they were in the 1980's. Perhaps Arnie is tipping his hat to the gringo pirates?  ;D

 This one surprised me. Not a private, probably, about 9+10 am in Northern Vt.
I had not heard this band used for broadcasting before, they are in spanish talking about Trump.
