** CUBA, 6000, April 3 at 0605, RHC English S9+30/40, only 49m still
on but JBA at 0624 on second harmonic 12000. Also 9700 // at 0620,
S7/S9 and no CCI - if 300 kW from Romania aimed thisaway 0530-0630
really be on? Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. 6185-, April 3 at 0603, S9/+20 of dead air from R.
Educación instead of eclectic music, and as always slightly low in
frequency. I gather from other reports that XEPPM appreciates its SW
audience and sometimes calls out to them (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, April 3 at 0602, no signal from VON (Glenn Hauser,

** NORTH AMERICA. 7319.998, April 3 at 0601, S3 music direct, presumed
pirate, Radio Vostochnaya Zvezda, last reported to be on 7320, and
this is very close. Nothing else known on this frequency.

Ron Howard was also hearing it, as usual much better: ``April 3, I was
listening from 0625 to 0655 UT, to Radio Vostochnaya Zvezda (Radio
Eastern Star), again on 7320 AM; pleasant listening to mostly Russian
songs, but also some instrumental music. Is wonderful that the station
occasionally plays an old Russian IS. My audio posted at
Ron, California``

Arthur Pozner replied: ``This Interval Signal was very commonly heard
on the internal Home Service (All-Union) broadcasts since 1964 until
the fall of the USSR. And that song in the audio recording goes back
to the Civil War era

Walt Salmaniw, BC: ``Yes, I was listening just before then and agree
that reception was quite good in to Masset. I posted on the HFU, and
received an eQSL from the operator quite quickly. Nice touch. 73,

Gary Pence also reports at 0640: ``The Russian guy at 7320 --- Hi
Glenn, I was listening on 7320 khz at 0632z, good S7 sig, KFS omni and
omni at Point Reyes. N. Utah has him OK as wo71 [?] in Northern
Nevada. What has changed since 4015 is that Southern Nevada radio
ranch no longer heard there and now doing a little better in Stauffer,
CA KB6c and the best sig in KFS southeast at S9+5 so he must be
somewhat in front of this 60 degree beamwidth. His audio is really
tweeked well for AM and sometimes a little over driven. I wouldn't
mind if someone tried another TDOA on this current frequency. 73s,
Gary, KM5X`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785, April 3 at 2220, VOT English to us manages to be on
air today, VG into UTwente on the way, but overmodulatedistorted.
`Feeling Supreme/The Healing Spring` until 2228, the horribly-accented
YL with something about how to breathe correctly while exercising;
later, a `DYKT` segment (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13563.5 CW, April 3 at 1458, HIFER beacon PCO from Pine,
Colorado is JBA, and so is on 13565, K6FRC in Patterson California ---
and seems to be another JJBBA somewhere between them but uncopiable.
Several shown here:

** U S A. RF 34, April 3 at 1533 UT, one TV DX signal decodes briefly
as 33-1, KMSS-HD. That`s the 1 megawatt Fox station in Shreveport LA,
correlating nicely with APRS map showing a large tropo blob between
here and there. Rabbitears.info shows it has an X direxional pattern,
the NW leg good for us, and not too far off the fixed beam of my
antenna aimed SSE at OKC. City/city distance 574 km = 357 mi. Also,
BAD signals on the STB from these RF channels: 31, 28, 26, 22, 21, 14,
12, 11, 8. Not enough DX to disrupt any of my semilocals, but marginal
16 is also Bad (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7260, April 3 at 0602, no signal from RV on 7260, 7890 or
11835. But at 0608 a JBA carrier on 5040 - I bet that`s it, as later
confirmed by Ron Howard:

``5040, Radio Vanuatu, 0659-0750 UT, April 3. "BBC World Service"
promo, available on 104 FM Port Vila (my audio attached); 0701-0713,
news in Bislama (several items about the number of households in
Vanuatu without clean water and food, a month after the recent natural
disasters [news story - http://bit.ly/3U72sVZ ], etc.); island pop
songs; 0730+, generic PSA about cyclones; somewhat readable. Ron,
Asilomar State Beach, Calif. (near Monterey), Etón E1, external
antenna: 100 ft. long wire`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
