** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, UT Sun Dec 10, the Saturday LRA36
broadcast from before 1800, keeps on going into Argentine remote: at
0125 check, 0206 rock music, 0228, 0300 S7 music, finally off circa
0352* -- well after local midnight (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6000, Dec 10 at 0423, RHC manages to be on air this time,
S9+30/40 English but suptorted = suppressed and distorted
undermodulation. Not found on any other frequency. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, Sunday Dec 10 at 1614, RHC in weekly Esperanto, S6/S8
// 15140 S7/S9 yet 11760 is much better and louder. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K [non]. 12095, Dec 10 at 1618, Russian at S9+10/20, newish WRN
service via DHA site, one of strongest signals on band, surely the
strongest extracontinental, slightly better even than R. Martí via NC
on 11930, S9/+20. It`s 250 kW, 345 degrees from UAE so also favors us
far beyond western Russia, e.g. Denver, less than 10 degrees away from
Enid. HFCC of Dec 6 however, has this registered only at 14-15 UT.
Aoki misses it completely, but EiBi:
12095 1530-1600 RUS WRN Vsemirnaya Radioset R EEu /UAE
12095 1620-1630 RUS WRN Vsemirnaya Radioset R EEu /UAE
12095 1630-1700 SVK Radio Slovakia Int. R EEu /UAE
12095 1530-1600 Sunday UN United Nations Radio R EEu /UAE

I doubt there really be a break 1600-1620. Vsemirnaya obviously means
Worldwide, Всемирная, but Radioset? It`s really радиосеть = radio
network (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 379 MCW kHz, Dec 10 at 0418, local line noise has abated but
now there is heavy noise from a straight line of storming from the RGV
of TX to the PA/NY border, heaviest in LA/MS/AL/TN, so I can detect a
few JBA DX beacons, but copy is difficult. But ongoing, should be
low-noise nights of both kinds.

On 379 first seems like SU? Nothing listed. At 0454 I am more sure
that it is RS. Only this is close enough to that, also geographically,
as in the RNA reference classaxe, previously logged: ``379 RUE
Russellville AR 25w 08Oct23 Tony reports it is mis-keying as 'RU' . .
. no E``

408 MCW kHz, Dec 10 at 0419, OJ? or maybe OLA? nothing even fuzzily
similar at RNA or DXinfocentre.

326 MCW kHz, Dec 10 at 0416, MA, no doubt about this ND beacon, 400
watts at Midland TX (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2220 monitoring: confirmed UT
Sunday December 10 at 0100 on WRMI 9955, S9+25 into Missouri SDR.

Also confirmed UT Sunday December 10 at 0551-0557 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM,
MO, S9+18, so the nominal 0415v started way late circa 0528. Overtime
HamSat ending at 0512 and into ARRL news which must have lasted ~16
