cuetools 2.16 prerequisites lists net framework 2.0sp2 & vcrun2008.
today i created a fresh 64bit wineprefix, installed only dotnet20sp2 (x64) and to my surprise, cuetools (libflac) was working just fine.
in the changelog of cuetools you find:
I moved from Visual Studio 2005 to Visual Studio 2008, sorry folks, you might need to install yet another MS redistributable (most likely it's already installed): x86 version, x64 version. If you don't see libFLAC in the list of flac encoders, that means you need this redistributable. Although you can just use libFlake instead, which doesn't require it.
is vcrun2008 needed at all?
p.s. it even works with dotnet20sp1 alone - is wine transcendent or what?

There has been at least one investigation, by Cuba. (It was naturally limited by a lack of cooperation by the U.S.,which may or may not have been justified.)
I would be interested in the reaction of those investigators, and vice versa, as to how this could in fact be done physically in the place where this allegedly happened. And how the effect was accomplished through numerous normal physical barriers and then affected some while not affecting others.

Starting in 2016, various (mostly American and Canadian) diplomatic personnel have reported bizarre health effects, with symptoms so strange they were often not believed, and which are potentially even linked brain abnormalities in affected personnel. The Cuban government has (I'd suggest plausibly) denied any responsibility for the strange "attacks", and there seems to be no immediately obvious medical explanation for the symptoms.
In the official IEEE publication Spectrum, two enterprising US & Chinese professors and a grad student have put up a fascinating article providing a plausible explanation for the combination of audible noise and (potentially) detrimental health effects that might be linked to exposure to high powered ultrasonic devices, and most saliently, why ultrasonic devices would be used in a diplomatic context (to quash and/or engage in eavesdropping). In essence, their explanation boils down to Intermodulation Distortion causing the audible effects. Their Spectrum article is essentially distilling bits of their research paper manuscript (pdf direct link), (much of) the abstract of which I'll quote below:
Quote from: Yan, Fu & Xu 2017
We created a proof of concept eavesdropping device to exfiltrate information by AM modulation over an inaudible ultrasonic carrier. When a second inaudible ultrasonic source interfered with the primary inaudible ultrasonic source, intermodu- lation distortion created audible byproducts that share spectral characteristics with audio from the AP news. Our conclusion is that if ultrasound played a role in harming diplomats in Cuba, then a plausible cause is intermodulation distortion between ultrasonic signals that unintention- ally synthesize audible tones. In other words, acoustic interference without malicious intent to cause harm could have led to the audible sensations in Cuba.

So can you reliably reproduce it? Perhaps you could send me your config file (or export to an FCL file) and tell me which column you're editing, and what you're changing the display script to.

vorbis has been my lossy codec of choice for so many years, but you are right about android devices. with opus getting more and more popular, i hoped for a wide range of radios offering opus support. this to me seemed much more realistic than an ogg car radio in 2018. after all, the status of opus (hardware) is even more exotic than ogg ever was i think
i guess i will concentrate on a classic car radio with support for flac & high sdcard capacities then. this seems way more practical than a smartphone in combination.
concerning the lack of gapless playback, it is indeed a plague, especially when listening to (seamless) audiobooks.
thinking about what is important for me when looking for a new classic car radio:
+ should not be too expensive (under 100euros) + vorbis or opus codec support (incl tags) + good handling (intuitive way of selecting files/folders) / nice arrangment of buttons (skip, seek, mute) + clean interface / screen (no fancy blinking stuff, option to turn off ->> light on resources)
