I've been listening Radio Havana Cuba for many years and enjoy DXers Unlimited program hosted by Arnie Coro, CO2KK, but he's now 77 years old.

His voice is no longer "broadcast compatible"; even with a S9+20dB, it's a strain to understand most of his words.

Granted, often the audio quality on RHC is suboptimal, but  I've always been able to understand Arnie. Until now.

So, Professor Emeritis Arnie, if you're reading this, keep writing  your DXers Unlimited program copy, but consider turning it over to a younger voice.

I'm not 100% sure of this, but I think he sends the show to the studio over phone lines, making audio quality even more limited.

Yeah, it sounds like a wireline telephone. I think that's the issue. RHC's equipment is aging, too, from what I've read, which I am sure doesn't help all that much.

Thank God this is the extent of this thread. When I first saw it in truncated form on the main  website,  I thought we had suffered another DX loss! Thank God it isn’t.

RHC's audio has been putrid for many years.  Coro's age and the probably very poor phone lines in Cuba make matters worse.

He speaks fluent PSK31, in FT8...  One QSO with him earns you 5BDXCC...  His Wouff Hong has two Wouffs... Hiram Percy Maxim called HIM "The Old Man..."  He is... The Most Interesting Ham In The World!
