Radio Habana Cuba (multiple frequencies logged in SEA)

Reverse side of QSL for 18 Nov 2013
Radio Habana Cuba (RHC) in the past few weeks has been received on several frequencies, including: 11.840 kHz with (SINPO) 34443 at 22.00 UTC with news features in Spanish; 15.230 kHz with (SINPO) 35442 at 23.00 UTC with discussion in Portuguese; and 15.370 kHz with (SINPO) 15321 - faint audio at 23.00 UTC with station ID in Creole. Most recently (17 November 2013) I listened to an English language broadcast (Mailbag programme from listeners) of RHC on 11.880 kHz. Reception (SINPO) at 23.35 till 00.00 UTC was 24332; as grey-line between Cuba and Malaysia approached reception improved to 24442 with greater clarity of audio. Interestingly, reception of RHC appears to be best in Southeast Asia from 21.00 to 23.00 UTC.

Reception reports have been emailed to RHC for previous reports, as well as most recent English language broadcast heard on 17 November 2013. Rosario Lafita Fernández, Head of Correspondence Dept., Radio Havana Cuba, replied with this email on 22 November 2013: "Thank you so much for your latest messages. It's a pleasure to learn that you're still interested in keeping in touch with us. hanks for your detailed reception reports, which we're verifying with two QSL cards. Once in your hands please, let us know." On 2 April 2014 QSLs for 25 metre frequencies were received in the mail.
