** ANTARCTICA. 15476, as usual late coming on, May 13 at 1233 nothing, but *1238:19 carrier on with immediate musical prélude; 1249 switch to another song, then LRA36 ID and usual sign-on, not with “Soy Feliz“ theme but song with similar beat. S9+12 and I have no time to listen further today. I`m rather surprised that this is not being …

** ALBANIA. 13625, May 12 at 1430 nothing heard until 1431 so R.

** 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, …

** 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.
