** ANTARCTICA [non?]. Correcting second time cited: 2340, not 2240:
15475.98 RC USB, again this Wed, April 26, I neglect to check for
LRA36 as early as 20 or 21 UT, but no one else reports it either. I do
tune from 2309 via Argentine remote, not hearing it but instead some
intermittent rather musical utilitones. Can be roughly once a minute
or much less often, to 2340. Sounds like same sequence each time. They
last only a few sex, never enough time to try to pinpoint the
reference/carrier frequency if any. I do also hear them on 15478 USB
where the tones are of course quite different. I suppose these have
nothing to do with LRA36? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2188)

** CUBA. 5025, April 27 at 0607, R. Rebelde is OFF -- had been
reliably on with VG, very wide signal. Check at 1615 into Boca Ratón
FL SDR, can tell it`s on VP, S6/S7; don`t know if that`s normal for
midday. Not at all into Orlando; and Key West is offline (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2188)

** MEXICO. 6185-, April 27 at 0606, S9/+10 of dead air from XEPPM,
which happens all too often late at night (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF
RADIO 2188)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7400 AM, April 27 at 0557, S6/S8 a few words spoken,
seem like Russian, into music thru hourtop. Presumed R. Vostochnaya
Zvezda pirate circa Arizona (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2188)

** U S A. 395 MCW kHz, April 27 at 0642 UT, CA, 25-watt ND beacon at
Newton / Harvs KS, JBA but usually blocked by local HNL peaking around
400 kHz, which must have abated slightly. Likewise for 407 kHz, HRU,
25-watt ND beacon at Herington KS. Also now need to overcome external
high storm noise level (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4095, April 27 at 0610, sweeps up and occasional DW in CW,
the Desert Whooper, JBA despite HSNL; logged for the record as usually
audible (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

HSNL; usually audible but logged for the record. Probably SW USA,
anywhere but Quartzsite AZ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. The latest from George McClintock, on fixing WTWW-1:
``Subject: WTWW: final power module found --- ALL, I don't fully
understand but someone or Jason sent a burned up power module to be
copied. The company said they could not do it. The module has been
sent to me and I should have it on this Friday. This is the missing
module number 48 of 48 for transmitter #1. I will now have all the
power modules. I am still missing 4 control cards for the power
modules and am waiting to see if Continental can find some damaged
control cards lying around to send to me. George McClintock
