** ANTARCTICA. Bruce Churchill comments on my not getting an LRA36 eQSL yet: “Glenn, Sometimes the LRA-36 replies are within hours, but in my experience, it`s more like several days to possibly a month or so. But they will reply, and that’s more than I can say for most SW stations these days ☹… Bruce“. And Manuel Méndez, Lugo, Spain, says: “The staff of LRA 36 are replying all the reception report received. It will take them several days to answer all of them.
“From the second Saturday of August, LRA 36 probably will be on air every Saturday, 15476 USB mode, repeating the Wednesday’s program “Corazón Antártico”. It has to be decided if it will be on air the two hours of the show “Corazón Antártico”, or 24 hours, with the show and music, like the last USB transmission. On Wednesday, July 29, there will be no program, like the past July 15 and 22, due to announcer’s holiday. Next “Corazón Antártico” program will be on air on Wednesday August 5“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. 840 kHz, July 28 at 0400 & 0409 UT, WHAS Louisville KY is still on. Earlier, Chris Gay tipped the WOR iog that WHAS had announced it would go off the air at midnight – 0400 UT – for antenna maintenance, duration unknown. I leave a radio on 840 and around 0415 WHAS seems gone but others say it was 0417 or 0418 so it may have been in a fade a bit before. Then listening closely I hear some talk in Spanish, followed by mostly music. #1 suspect is CMHW Santa Clara, CUBA. Considerable splash ACI as if from music, but unseems from WCCO or KOA. When aimed N/S I get a fast SAH presumably involving KVJY in the RGV, also Spanish format, but religion. Not rechecked until 0631 when I still hear Spanish stronger; 0634 WHAS cuts on about iHeart Radio for a few seconds, off again. *0637 WHAS back on again, seemingly to stay, in `C2CAM` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
