Default Radio Habana Sounds Like Ka-Ka

Whatever happened to the Cuban powerhouse. Can we take up a collection to
buy them some new modulator tubes? Somebody call the Svetlana factory and
get some new glass in that transmitter!

Listening 6.000MHz 0300Z, they sound like crap. Low freq popping noises,
muffled audio probably modulating the carrier only a few percent. My ham
rig has better audio!

Pathetic.

Their signal has been pretty crappy on 9820 also with weak modulation
lately.

It was a good signal for me, that's why I made the suggestion.
But I'm in the eastern US, so maybe better for me than you.
Last night everything was crap though.

I have always had problems monitoring RHC, both on 6000, and 9820.
They almost always sound muffled and muddy. Though I like their news
@0100 on 9820, I use a graphic equalizer to help enrich the sound, and
cut out noise and static.

The norm here is 9820 is over S9 with good audio. I don't listen to them
much anymore but lately every time I went by them scanning through the
band they had weak muffled audio with some kind of TTY in the background.

I read somewhere that the problems with their signal has to do with
reception problems rather than poor modulation at the source. I don't know
this from my own experience, of course. But I can tell you that when I was
in Orlando, Florida last October I expected them to boom in and they were
coming in less well then they usually do up here in Connecticut, so there
may be something to it. Just like in the Winter months when I can't hear
WBCQ at all and they tell me it is skipping over me. It comes in fine in the
summer but never in the winter.
