Glenn Hauser logs May 21, 2022

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, Saturday May 21 from 1450, no signal yet from LRA36 into Brasil, Argentine SDRs. Finally *1510 but JBA into Brasília, much better into Bs As with sign-on, 1512 Antártida themesong. Talk but too weak to follow, S2/S3; 1520 song, 1523 siren, interview; but being overridden by 5-second-long uteblaaps of noise starting every 35 to 40 seconds hitting S3/S4. At 1622 I notice the bursts have stopped, probably somewhat earlier. 1628 song and RNASG ID. 1638 has improved to S3/S5; gone about 1647* without any formal sign-off (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. 6185, May 21 at 0635, NO signal from R. Educación, XEPPM. Sure hope it`s not the end of Mexico`s only surviving SW station!!! It was last reported May 15 by Rick Barton, AZ. As of May 17-18-19, Ron Howard says it was missing at 1024, audiblizing China. Still nothing at earlier hours May 20 & 21. It had been running all-night till about 1100*? EiBi: 2100-1040. Aoki: 2100-1000. WRTH: 2200-1000, a.k.a. Señal Cultura México, 5 kW (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** RUSSIA. 78.0 kHz, May 21 at 1904, Russian mentions ``Mayak``; on the Izhevsk SDR I am about to try for 9370 R. Svoboda, already tuned here. With BFO, carrier is slightly unstable, but steady S8/9+5, and no QRM from 77.5 kHz German timesignal. 78 kHz of course is not where any broadcaster is supposed to be. An image from MW or higher on LW? No such frequency known in Russia for Mayak or anything anymore. Zacharias Liangas had also heard this May 18 at 1615 and not on any other remote. ??? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** RUSSIA [non]. 9370, May 21 at 1902, checking for R. Svoboda relay via Armenia? But no signal into UTwente, nor Izhevsk, Russia. Must be off, or canceled? Still nothing at 1916 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2139 monitoring: confirmed UT Saturday May 21 from a few seconds before 0400 on WBCQ Radio Angela, 5129.976, S9+10 into Maryland SDR. No QRM but stormcrashes.

Meanwhile on another SDR in TN I view the waterfall around 4790. There are still uteblaaps there but weak boxes maybe once a minute, alternating, plus, zero, minus 4790. Below the clear 5130, I also see some on the plus side of 5085, but probably inaudible vs huge WTWW signal.
