** 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 …

** ANTARCTICA [and non]. 15476, LRA36 back on the air Monday May 2 following weekend off. 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. The trio of XYLs should sing their announcements for much better projexion! At this time the Esperanza signal stood out, with …

** 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 …

** ANTARCTICA. 15476, LRA36: Friday April 29 at 1304, S9 to S9+10 peaks but undermodulated talk by lively YLs; made out one word: “micrófono“. Next check at 1314 had ACI from 15480 Greenville carrier until its 1315* [see USA]. As usual, RNASG weakened and by 1400 only trace, while ACI from other stations on both sides, 15470 and 15480 was …

** ANTARCTICA. 15476.00, April 28 at 1346, very poor signal in talk, carrier still detectable at 1424 after Greenville 15480 was on. At the earlier hour I measured frequency as best I could by zero-beating WWVH 15000, and stepping 1 kHz up and down from 15476 on the YB400, hearing exactly the same pitch. Contrary to a couple other reports …

** ANTARCTICA. 15476, April 27 at 1252 weak talk, building to S6 peaking at S9+10 by 1259, and stronger than UK 15480. Musical segués continue until 1306 announcement, just as the Greenville carrier comes on for pre-test; it goes back off at 1309 after brief tone test, and does not come back on until 1421:40 prior to scheduled R. Sawa …

** ALBANIA. 13735, April 25 at 1855, R. Tirana`s English to NAm from 1845 today has sufficient modulation, unlike yesterday, now easy to follow something about the European Parliament. Still totally in the clear from QRM, no other signals between 13720 and 13750. 13625, April 26 at 1442, R. Tirana English is poor with some music audible; both signal and …

** ANTARCTICA [and non]. 15476, April 25 first checked at 1310, only to find strong open carrier and tone test on 15480 but thankfully off at 1311. That`s 250 kW from Greenville warming up for the new R. Sawa transmission at 1430-1600, which we hope will be abandoned as quickly in a few days as the previous one on 15470. …

** CANADA [non]. 17495, Sunday April 24 at 1449 gospel music, 1451 YL with North American accent about Jesus; closing with long PO Box number starting with 5- was cut off abruptly at 1459. Had not been hearing anything on this frequency, certainly not WBCQ as registered, which is only a wooden one, alternate to 15420. But HFCC explains the …

** ALBANIA. 13625, R. Tirana, English to NAm, S9+10 April 23 at 1445 — but just open carrier. Straining to hear anything, there is a trace of music, just barely modulated. Assuring a clear frequency hardly matters when the station can`t maintain modulation (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ** CHINA. Firedrake April 23:10970, poor at 134014700, very poor at …

** ALGERIA [non]. 9535, RTA via FRANCE, April 22 at 0615 in Arabic with quick heavy echo, much like we sometimes hear on 7295 in the previous hour. Long/short path propagationally unlikely at this hour involving the dayside, so once again we suspect TDF at Issoudun have failed to turn off one transmitter before turning on another with a slightly …
