** ANTARCTICA. Adding to previous report on the extended broadcast of LRA36, 15475.98-CUSB, July 11 as heard via Brasília KiwiSDR: Kept playing nothing but music from Miguel Figueroa y Su Conjunto, including shout-outs by the leader but no station announcements, past 1800, 1824, and still past 1900 and past when I finally quit at 1912+. Manuel Méndez in Spain reported, “At about 1940 signal weakened and became inaudible. 15321“
I found this link to more about his group and many performances, and BTW, July 9 was independence day in Argentina, so maybe that explains this broadcast on I.D. weekend? https://www.facebook.com/miguelfigueroaysuconjuntoamancercampero/ Citing here does not imply endorsement by gh of disgraced FB.
Now, Horacio Nigro posts to the WOR iog:
“Friends and colleagues such as Horacio Nigro Geolkiewsky and Alejandro Álvarez have suggested on various occasions to evaluate the performance of the transmitter in use by LRA36 Radio Nacional Arcángel San Gabriel in USB mode. I transmitted this concern to the operator and technical manager of the station, Mr Damian Tranamil, who considered it possible to carry out some tests taking into account both the mode of emission and the propagation at the appropriate time.
That is why the next Saturday, July 18 and 25, between 1700 pm [sic] and 2300 UT, there will be test broadcasts of LRA 36 on the frequency of 15476 khz USB mode. Reports of reception to firstname.lastname@example.org or to Facebook Esperanza San Gabriel. Confirm via eQSL. Diffusion appreciated (Adrian Korol, RAE, Buenos Aires Argentina via Horacio Nigro Geolkiewsky, Montevideo, Uruguay, July 12)“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** AUSTRIA. 11620, July 12 at 0614, YL in French; BBC via Moosbrunn listed this hour only; tuning across in USB, hear a LAH so seemed off-frequency, but measured within a couple Hz of .000. The LAH is axually some hum on the audio, another indicator of trouble at this transmitter site (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CHINA. 15340, July 12 at 1258, Chinese at S6-S8; Aoki shows Sound of Hope relaying RFA via Pingtung, Taiwan site all the way from 00 to 17 with only 1 kW; so this is certainly CNR1 *jamming.
14870, July 12 at 1259, JBA algo, Chinese? An SOH frequency, so CNR1 jamming.
More thorough CNR1 jammer survey, July 12 from 1305, a most active hour in local primetime of 9 pm:
1305, 13835 with two signals mixing, the victim being RFA Tibetan via TAJIKISTAN this hour only. Also single signals on 13160, 13150.
1310: 12880 S7-S9; 12870; 12800 echo; 11460; 11150; 11120; 11100 S4-S7; 10920; 10820 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** KOREA NORTH [non]. 9940, July 12 at 1317, slow rather wistful song at S6-S9, 1320 Korean talk and more music. It`s Nippon no Kaze via Paochung, TAIWAN site during this semihour (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** NIGERIA [non?]. 15120, July 12 at 0621, JBA carrier, possibly Voice of Nigeria; when I heard this broadcast on 11770- instead of 9690- instead of 7255-, I remarked, “what`s next, 15120?“. Tonight all three lower frequencies are vacant, and 19m is barely propagating anything, the Midnight Sun helping.
However, CRI Beijing site is on 15120 at 0300-0700; Nigeria supposedly in DRM only, when active at various times between 0900 and 1900. Other JBA AM carriers on 19m now: 15160 correlating with China, 15180 with North Korea, and 15400 with BBC Madagascar (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-SSTV, July 12 at 0131 tune-in to SSTV beepery in progress; hard to pin down in USB tuning, not having heard any voice, also audible on 6951, but I notice no sound listening on AM. S9+10 via indoor longwire due to local storms; pause and soon start another SSTV and then apparently off, nothing further. Many logs here as KDOG, with many previous SSTV images mostly of —dogs: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,69365.0.html (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** SCOTLAND [non]. 5850, UT Sun July 12 at 0137, `Encore` classical music via WRMI, VG here and VP on // 5010. Hope to catch the rest of it from 0200 UT Mon on 9455 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** SINGAPORE. 15145, July 12 at 1258, S7-S9 of BBCWS English promotion to 1259*, this hour only via Kranji, 250 kW at 13 degrees across China and USward, and per Aoki also *jammed but none heard here. Far too many Chinese understand English, so even BBC Must Be Jammed to keep them ignorant (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. Once again while waiting/hoping for the Es MUF to penetrate the FMBC band, I check out the 10m hambeaconband, mostly relogs:
28281-CW, July 12 at 1810, DE W8EH FM79, i.e.: “28.281 W8EH C MIDDLETOWN OHIO # 8W, GP VERTICAL“
28254.5-CW, July 12 at 1812, VVV VVV DE K4JEE/B, i.e.: “28.2545 K4JEE C LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY # 5W, VERTICAL New 6 Nov 11“
28325-CW, July 12 at 1814, partial ID as W0R–, big fade up and out, but not listed by WJ5O, as slightly above its beacon sub-band limit. Seemed like a beacon, as CW QSOs would be down toward 28000.
28217.7-CW, July 12 at 1849 after lunch, VVV VVV DE K4PAR/B and more in long message of 26 seconds, and long pause of 28 seconds before repeating, i.e.: “28.2177 K4PAR C EATONTON, GEORGIA NEW 1 JUNE 2019“

** U S A. 7490.04 approx, UT Sun July 12 at 0134, dead air from WBCQ, typical offset frequency. `Shortwave Saturday Night` with Pirate Joe, J.P. Ferraro is supposed to run 0100-0400 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
UNIDENTIFIED. 14400-AM, July 12 at 1304, rather steady S6 open carrier. Not an Aoki-listed CNR1 jamming channel (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
UNIDENTIFIED. 14486-USB, July 12 at 1300, 2-way in Spanish, weak but stronger one mentions some numbers, and different tones in background maybe music or just hum (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
