** CHINA. 13130, June 14 at 1352, CNR1 jammer at S6-S8, presumably
also the JBA carriers on 13070, 12870, 12820; further bands not tried
today, time for breakfast. BTW, it`s a long time since I have heard
any Firedragon musical jamming instead (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6935-USB, pirate Radio Nova log in last report got
an unsolicited e-QSL in about an hour:

with same street/sky view in India? as on SSTV, the 89th entry at
http://www.worldofradio.com/QSL.html
with this note:
``Thanks for your report via WOR that you received our broadcast this
evening. It's good to know that we were making it to Oklahoma. We hope
your reception next time will be better. An eQSL verifying your
reception is attached. 73, RADIO NOVA`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 515-MCW kHz, June 14 at 0558 UT, NDB PN in Ponca City is
OFF --- first time I`ve noticed it absent. Easy come, easy go? Just
after 314-MCW kHz, EI in Enid came back after 3 months, and not long
ago 255-MCW kHz, SW in Stillwater came back. All allegedly 25 watts,
but PN was always much stronger, also than the other regular
groundwave Okie, 350-MCW kHz, RG at Will Rogers World Airport, SW OKC
All three of those still running, altho EI has CCI from OIN in Oberlin
KS, almost the same pitch too. PN still off at 1347 UT, the others
still on (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 25000, June 14 at 1720, WWV S8-S9 due to short-skip sporadic
E opening, with HF spots all over the country; yet no activity on the
24890-24990 12-meter hamband (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. 28290-CW, June 14 at 1726, JBA beacon; try again
at 1757 when it`s slightly better, enough to copy: AL AL AL DE WJ5O/B
WJ5O/B W5JO/B. QRZ.com:

``WJ5O Primary only for: WJ5O/B WILLIAM H HAYS Troy, AL 36079 USA

Regardless of where We are in the sunspot cycle, I'm 99% a 10 Meter
Operator. The WJ5O propagation beacon can be heard on 28.289.3 MHz and
has been in operation since June 1992 running two Watts into a roof
mounted Vertical. Please "click" on My page to see the beacon set-up
and a current listing of Worldwide Ten Meter Beacons.

USAF retired SMSgt 1971 (Aircraft Maintenance)``

I had already crossed his path by searching on ten meter beacons, to
find the very same guy is responsible for this huge frequency list!
https://www.qsl.net/wj5o/bcn.htm
and his own entry is:
``28.2893 WJ5O C TROY ALABAMA # 2W VERTICAL New Frequency 25 Jan 14``
C=CONTINUOUS I=INTERMITTENT #=CONFIRMED AS ACTIVE OR HEARD

Yes, it was on the low side of 28290-, and now we know the AL means
Alabama rather than part of a grid square. Also:

28231, WA4FC/B, Prince George, Virginia audible again, 1723 June 14;

28276.5, unID at 1726, just too weak, but the only one on this exact
frequency is: ``28.2765 XE2WK C VICTORIA, TAMAULIPAS MEX # 5W,
VERTICAL NEW new Call July 09``.

During all this only a couple of JBA phone signals in the 28.4+ MHz
area, but plenty of hetty AM pileups on CB, mainly 27025, and LSB
freebanders on 27405, 27425, etc. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
