** ANTARCTICA [and non]. 15476, no signal May 11 at 1235, so I tune the second set to BFO on 15475 in order to be notified when LRA36 turn on. That happens at *1244, late again, so back to the FRG-7 to hear musical modulation at S9 to S9+10. 1252, XYL ID, sign-on with frequencies, coördinates; then “Soy Feliz“ theme …

** ANTARCTICA. 15476, May 10 at 1252, LRA36 with music to S9+10 level, and YL quickly mentions LRA36 as in their e-mail address. (I don`t like to convey Spanish fonetically, as everyone should at least learn its simple pronunciation scheme and numbers, but just once I will do so to assist some others in copying the ID: EH-leh, EH-reh, AH, …

** ANTARCTICA. 15476, Monday May 9 at 1301, LRA36 is on with music. 1307 next music is at a feverish pace, no doubt encouraging fast-dancing to keep warm, as at 1311 announced the temperature as -21 C, on `Amanecer Austral` show; 1312 with phone numbers, seemed to mention date as “9 de marzo“ but maybe was really “mayo“ with that …

** BELGIUM [non]. Further evidence that DRM is NOT compatible with AM shortwave broadcasting, and should be restricted to totally different utility bands: May 7 at 2010, 17750 WYFR in English has heavy QRDRM noise from 17750-17755-17760 TDP via GUIANA FRENCH. HFCC shows the two overlap for half a sesquihour at 2000-2045. Does WYFR AM also disrupt the handful trying …

** ANTARCTICA. 15476, May 5 at 1210 I set the second receiver with BFO on 15475, to be notified exactly when LRA36 turns on its carrier: Not until *1229 and immediately with music, S9+12 peaks. This turns out to be one of my best receptions so far. 1236 segué to another music, no announcements yet. 1239 finally ID with frequency, …

Something had been heard there the previous two Tuesdays in NZ and Australia; and it was missing from its usual earlier broadcast on May 3. 15476, May 4 at 1257, LRA36 is back at S9+8 level, undermodulated talk; 1300 said “buena música“ …

** ANTARCTICA. 15476, no sign of LRA36 May 3 at 1309, 1358. It was audible 24 hours earlier. This timing is no good for Australia and NZ, but Bryan Clark in NZ has been hearing non-stop Latin music on 15476, two consecutive UT Tuesdays: 19 April at 1908-2050* and 26 April at 1936-2004*. I haven`t been looking for it at …

At 1311, S9 to S9+10 peaks and going from easily heard music to talk at strain level. 1314 back to better-audible music again.

** CANADA [and non]. 6070, no sign of a carrier from CFRX, May 1 at 0521, a time when it is normally audible. Altho propagation was degraded on higher frequencies, 49m was working from Spain on 6055, Sackville on 6080, etc. Abnormally, the highest frequency with any signal at all was 13630, very poor Australia. So has CFRX crashed again? …

** ALBANIA [and non]. 13735, R. Tirana, April 29 at 2020 in the 2000 UT English to NAm: averaging S9+12 and sufficient modulation, which shows it can be done, so why not all the time? Concluding `Outstanding Albanian Personality Profile` about a democratic leader who died of a brain hemorrhage in 2006y; 2022 music. The strongest station on the band …
