** BRAZIL [and non]. 28305 USB, April 25 at 2158, PV8AL, Hélio, making
quick contacts with 100 watts, ``QRZ DX`` including with a K5. Hardly
any other sigs on band: someone about Puerto Rico on 28315; not a
single CW beacon. QRZ.com:

VISTA, RR 69301970, Brazil`` - that`s Roraima. Lots of antenna shots:
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 248 MCW kHz, April 25 at 0655, no signal, no carrier from
WG, 1000 watt NDB at Winnipeg which was to be decommissioned on April
20, per dxinfocentre.com. Otherwise had been the one Canadian audible
if any. Also to go as of Apr 20 were 335, YLD, 1000 watts at Chapleau
ON, which I have heard a number of times; and 368, VX, 50 watts at
Dafoe SK, which I have not (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** COLOMBIA [and non]. 10125 CW, April 25 at 0644, HK3QQ with regular
keypad letters but also JBA USB talk, presumably Australian. Of course
with BFO on exactly 10125, one does not hear the CW (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** CUBA. 11462, April 25 at 0642, suspicious carrier and then JBA spy
numbers in Spanish, plus some digiblaaps. Usually these are loud &
clear, but still not recovered from geomag storm. Jamming against
nothing on 11860 & 11930 also weakened. However, EiBi shows sked for
this is: 0454-0550 & 0854-0950 Tue/Thu Sat. At this time supposed to
be on 14375. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** CUBA [and non]. 15230, April 25 at 2205, RHC S9+25 but JBM,
distorted and cutting out, in Portuguese? Without embargo was about to
award it SSOB, as hardly anything else but JBA Brasil 15190v and WRMI
15770 S9 relaying Taiwan in Spanish -- until at 2206 I got to 15120,
S9+44 of open carrier/dead air: presumably VOA Grimesland not turned
off yet after weekday 2130-2200 Bambara; rather than CRI via Cuba.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, April 25 at 0511 UT, JBV carrier trace on the
waterfall of Kaneohe, Oahu SDR, so R. Kiribati is on the air altho not
detected direct since April 10. Registers S7 but inaudible. However,
no trace at first check 0440. Still nothing direct at 0640 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7400, April 25 at 0648, JBA carrier, presumed R.
Vostochnaya Zvezda (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, April 25 at 2202, this REE is OFF, on an unEnglish
Tuesday but I check anyway; since 17715 for S America is fairly
audible at S2/S5, but 15520 back from ME beam is best, S4/S8; 11670
for Af JBA. Something`s not right at Noblejas (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2187 monitoring: confirmed UT
Tuesday April 25 at 0045 the 0030 on WRMI 9395, VG S9+20/30 direct.

** U S A. 9955, April 25 at 0646, WRMI is S5/S8 while 9395 & 9455 are
S9+30! Quite a difference; is it only because 9955 aims SSE while the
others go NNW or WNW? Or is 9955 axually underpowered. 9455 is SMTV,
the others, TOMBS (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
