** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-CUSB, eQSL sent and received at 1733 UT July
29 for my LRA36 remote reception of July 25 --- but from RAE itself,
not LRA 36: ``QSL de RAE para Glenn Hauser``. It`s very nice with 6
scenic views of different regions of Argentina, not including
Antarctica, and no mention of LRA36 by name or of Antarctica. But it
does fill in 15476, date and time. I had cc`d to RAE my report to
LRA36, so perhaps an eQSL direct from the latter is still pending. The
programmation for this was after all produced by RAE so this is not
inappropriate, maybe #259 issued as in file name, while I was honored
explicitly with #1 for RAE via WRMI in May 2017y, #85 & #86 in my
gallery, linked below. This comes from an address other than what I
used:
qslrae@...

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, July 29 at 1405-1410: none at all found
in the WOOB areas from 15 to 9 MHz. N & S Korea, Japan are audible.
There is a large dropoff of jamming at 1400* altho SOH and other
targets may stay on later (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11670 and spurblobs, July 29 at 0055-0059 from RHC, about 42
kHz intervals above and below circa 11712, 11754, 11796, 11838, trace
11880, 11923; with F# tone at least; and 11634-11627, 11586, trace
11544. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. 28166-CW, July 29 at 1925, beacon ``VVV XE2O/B EL05 5W``
with some repeats. Somewhat chirpy and sounds like original recording
may have been hand-keyed. Wish I had measured it as I thought it was
on the plus side of 28167, but listed by WJ5O as:
``28.166 XE2O C ALLENDE, NL, MEXICO # 5W, VERTICAL NEW 30 Aug 2010
new call 7 Aug 11`` --- Ciudad de Allende is SE of Monterrey on the
way to Montemorelos. Only station audible on the 10m band, sporadic E
but MUF way below 88 MHz. See also UNID 27455-USB (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** NORTHERN MARIANA ISLANDS. 13755.046, Wed July 29 at 1409, JBA talk
on typical offset of USAGM sites here, i.e. RFA Cantonese via TINIAN,
this hour only M/W/F. Both before and after this hour, CRI via
Kashgar, East Turkistan, is no doubt more precisely on 13755.00 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 515-MCW, July 29 at 0606, NDB PN Ponca City is off again;
and 341-MCW, EI Enid remains off since last report (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Wed July 29 at 2230 tune-in via UTwente, VOT English
is on today and VG, even without hum, but splash from 9685 which is
the orphan CRI ``Portuguese`` service of fill-music-only, via Kashgar;
why bother? --- as `Letterbox` is concluding until 2235 with host
explaining Turkey`s official line about Kurdistan --- ``just defending
our borders`` against PKK, not all Kurds. (The trouble is, the Kurds
don`t have any official borders of their own as 4 or 5 adjacent
countries gobbled up all their territory including SE part of Turkey
where Kurds are majority.) On to next feature; IS plays at 2248-2250*.
I set alarm to catch L`box from start at next and last repeat 0315
Thursday on 7275 intruding into the North American hamband (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2044 monitoring: missed checking Wed July 29

WOR 2045 should be ready by early UT Friday July 31 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4736.5-4740-4743.5, July 29 at 0040, strange multitonal
sending over this range, at first almost musical but could not resolve
it with any SSB tuning (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 14745.190, July 29 at 1413, JBA signal, perhaps Sound of
Hope, listed by EiBi not here but as close at 14725.3 and 14774.7
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 27455-USB, July 29 at 1922, Spanish freebander pileup,
Guatemala mentioned, as sporadic E struggles to maximize its
frequency. A good time to check for Ulis` 7th harmonic of TGAV on
28385 but still no sign of it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
