** ANTARCTICA. 15476-, July 8 at 1427, no signal here from LRA36, as
sometimes achieves over mostly-water path from Esperanza to Enid, so
is it still active Wednesdays around 1400-1600v? Yes, checked
Pardinho, Brasil KiwiSDR at 1541 to hear W&M chat in Spanish -1550+,
1552 ``Nacional`` jingle, 1555 credits and ID; but poor and hashy QRM,
local at rx site? Hard to tell with that but own modulation may also be
defective (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey July 8 at 1358: nothing below 13560
except 12880 & 12870 S7-S9, JBA on 12820. 1359 quick check above and
below 11 MHz at 1359 finds only 11100 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 4765, July 8 at 0100, no signal from Radio Progreso,
nominally 0030-0400. Mark Coady, Ont., also mentioned not hearing it
in his July 7 report but without a specific date and time, assuming
that was due to poor propagation. But something`s always wrong at
RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 5040, July 8 at 0545, RHC in wrong language, still Spanish
instead of English so not // 6000 JBM, 6145 undermod, and 6100 best,
plus second harmonic 12200, S9/+10 at 0553. Something`s always wrong
at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. 6185-, July 8 at 0548, at first seems XEPPM is AWOL, no
signal, but then a JBA carrier and offset-minus, so probably it but
QRP, exciter only? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 11769.904V, slightly unstable, July 8 at 0554, guess what,
VON is trying a third frequency for the 0600 Hausa broadcast, instead
of 7254.9 or 9689.9, both of which have been heard recently but vacant
now. Or a mistake? This is normally its evening channel only. HOA-type
music at tune in; 0558 IS of drum and flutish; 0600 first spoken word
is ``Nigeria``. This is the SSOB, equivalent to 12200 Cuba harmonic,
stronger than 11895 Chinese, i.e. CNR1 jammer vs RFA via Saipan, and
much stronger than 11835 Vanuatu harmonic. What`s next, 15120? (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 89.5, July 8 at 0240 UT and beyond, still there at 1550,
strong open carrier with $tereo pilot on, encountered as I am
fruitlessly bandscanning for sporadic E DX since there`s a 106 MHz MUF
spike around Wyoming. 89.5 is one of our few almost-open frequencies.
Nearest full-powers are KWGS in Tulsa and KHCD in Salina, but there is
no enhancement from other stations in those areas and both are
normally inaudible. Perhaps a neighbor`s unoccupied RF feeder?
Certainly not mine (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2041 monitoring, next:
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

PayPal not necessarily in US funds as they will convert.

** U S A. 5085, UT Wed July 8 at 0125, WTWW-2 has Ted asserting it`s
``the real QSO``, after rock music and before Jesus plug; 0136 recheck
Tedad for power supplies, and another Jesus plug. If this is ``QSO
RADIO SHOW LIVE TUESDAY 8 PM CENTRAL ON 5085`` per
http://wtww.us/pages/schedule.php
he`s veering it way off-topic. 5085 is already off at 0544 check;
sometimes runs later than nominal midnight CDT close.

This page also presents a totally imaginary multi-lingual 24-hour
schedule for 15810! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 1556 UT July 8

I hurried to get this report out before LRA36 closed in case others could hear it, but:

Reception had improved by 1555, no QRM and modulation OK, mostly readable; extended again past 1600, OM announcer breaks into song briefly at 1607; 1614 another song and ``un abrazo grande`` from YL; final credits briefly and song until 1615, off? Not quite, back with a bit more music until plugpull at 1615.7* (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
