** ARGENTINA [non]. 9955, Tue March 19 at 2350, WRMI-3 with continuous

dominating; as in previous report, KETU Catoosa/Tulsa in Spanish was
back on air less than a sesquihour earlier at 2227 check. FCC shows
official March SS/SR times for KETU are 0030/1230 UT, so should be on

starting at 2230. April: 0100/1145 UT. Real sunset UT March 20 at
Enid: 0043; Vernal Equinox was at 0307 UT March 20 (Glenn Hauser, Enid

Kuwait, Qatar and Kenya SDRs; 0245 next check, gone from all of them.
Next check 1958 March 20, on again, S9+20 into UTwente. Vatican may
pray it will have QSYed again by Rosary Sunday March 24 at 1940.

only a few sex dead air, off again. XJRTV understation CCCCCCI not on
yet. *2310.7 TRT back on and stays, now 5960.002, so could it be a
different unit? 2311 badax with a talk about yogurt, could not
understand title of the segment. 2320 `Middle East and Turkey` on
multi-national corps. 2326.7 `Sports Panorama` about stupid ballgames.
2333.6 multi-lingual ID filler reel. 2336 very lively song - we wonder
what they are about but they never tell us. Adds to the mystique? Then
another song, and more and more, nothing but songs until 2353 s/off
for the 1330 only, 2354 IS, now with XJRTV underaudible. 2356 pause
and restart IS with German IDs. Off 2357.5* uncovering XJRTV, std

** U S A [and non]. Reply to my inquiry where to find 10m ham beacon
info, no longer WI5V: ``Hi Glenn! WI5V is no longer the IARU Region 2
Beacon Coordinator and I understand that his beacon website is no
longer being updated, so perhaps he has taken the site down. I can
hear WI5V’s beacon on 28256 nearly every day, so it’s still

The new Region 2 Coordinator is Jerry Moyer, AC5JM, who also has a
beacon easily heard on 28258.5. You can access a list of active and
inactive Region 2 beacons that is updated daily from the website at
or directly from
The list may then be downloaded as an Excel file and sorted. Another
list with worldwide coverage that is updated daily that you might find
helpful can be found at
As I’ve mentioned before, there are about four or five of us who
contribute our 10-meter beacon logs semi-regularly to
ndblist@groups.io which are then used to update

UNIDENTIFIED. 26425 USB, March 20 at 2210, 2-way in Russian? Mentioned
``dvatset`` a few times, but also ``polski`` -- Slavic, anyway, one
side S9+10/20 stronger than the other. Surely not from Europe now.

26555 LSB, March 20 at 2214, multi-way pileup/talkovers, partly in
Spanish. Lots more freebanders above 26.6, and on both sides of the
legal CB; yet relatively little activity on the 10m beacon band above
