** BRAZIL. 11780, July 21 at 2126, RNA is S8/S9+10 but JBM suptorted
and some squeal. Wake up at the site (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jamming survey, July 22 at 1346-1400: 11460; 11440;
11150; 11120; 11000- JBA carrier; 10920; 10820; 12500; 12550; 12795
S9; 12835 S9-S7; 12880; 13020; 13130; 13160 S5-S8; 13630; 13835;
13920; 14850; 14920; 16065?; 16160; 9230 timesignal to 1400* (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11628 & 11712 approx., July 22 at 0114, extremely distorted
spurblobs from 11670 RHC; F# tone also audible especially in FM tuning
mode. Plus & minus 42 kHz, but no further multiples noted this time.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO [and non]. 1090, July 22 at 0600 UT, another dead-air hole
provided by KAAY Little Rock, facilitating when nulled other hearage.
Filled by music, brief unreadable Spanish announcement, then that song
in English with strumming, morphing from ``Somewhere Over the
Rainbow`` into ``What a Wonderful World``. Lovely, like this by IZ:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z26BvHOD_sg
So I do expect it to be XEAU Monterrey NL, 5/0.5 kW, which is
conveniently close to right angle from KAAY, and could also be source
of the English song last night. A fraxion of Mexistations do
specialize in English music; sure beats TV infomercials. 0605 KAAY
resumes with gospel music (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 28227.3-CW, July 22 at 1454, beacon VVV VVV DE KC0VDY/B:
``28.2273 KC0VDY C FRUITA, COLORADO 5W New 9 June 2018``
Fruita is just west of Grand Junxion on I-70 near Utah border. QRZ.com
shows:
``KC0VDY USA flag USA, James C Jeffery, Ii, Fruita, CO 81521 USA
I have a 10 Meter beacon that is on 28.2273 MHz running 5 watts
through a vertical antenna. Let me know if you hear it. 73s`` Not as
long as QRZ.com has this restrixion: ``Email: (Ham members only)``

28224.5-CW, July 22 at 1500, beacon K5GJR/B ..., heard before:
``28.2245 K5GJR C CORPUS CHRISTI, TX # 5W, VERTICAL``

29300-CW, July 2 at 1502, K5FRC/B, no further message, just ID like on
13565, which I`ve not heard in quite a while. WJ5O roster has this
rather confusing info as it includes historical/outdated entries:

``28.300 K6FRC/B3 TRACY, CALIFORNIA 10W, VERTICAL QRT prior to 2016
28.300 K6FRC C TRACY, CALIFORNIA # 100W, "POGO stick" VERTICAL Freq
change 8 July 09
28.300 K6FRC/B2 TRACY, CALIFORNIA 10W, VERTICAL Backup transmitter
for K6FRC/B`` --- but no listing for the call I do hear, K6FRC/B.
However most of the hundreds of listees omit the /B which most of them
do transmit (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 6159.9v, UT Wed July 22 at 0054 open carrier; 0055 start
``WBCQ The Planet`` ID & IS loop, 0100 music and faux time signal, Hal
Turner theme. Now it`s // 7490+ and 9455 WRMI.

5130.0 is not // the other WBCQs, 0057 music, 0100 `Whiter Shade of
Pale`, 0106 brief talk unreadable, maybe attempt to start `Amateur
Radio Roundtable` as sked, right back to music 0111+; too noisy (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330, July 22 at 1400, WLCR via WBCQ-6 is gone again (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9385, July 22 at 0116, WEWN English is finally back on after
missing some 18 days, first noted absent July 4. Now it`s S9+20/30,
seems stronger than before, rivalling WBCQ-6 9330, so maybe really
refurbished with more power output.

Back on July 13, frequency manager Glen Tapley had replied to my
inquiry, ``Filament and cable repair. Should be back in a day or
two``. Program now is discussing Planned Parenthood, no doubt
negatively by the Catholix who prefer Random Parenthood, and who cares
about overpopulation, a root cause of many of this world`s problems?
15610, afternoon frequency should also be back at 19-24; did not
notice it in random tuning July 21 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7505, July 22 at 0124 and 0216 chex, no signal from WRNO,
not unusual, nominally 0100-0400; is it frustrating for transmitters
and receivers or does no one really care? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
