EE.UU: Captaciones DX de Ralph Perry en Illinois.
MEXICO - 6009.95, Radio Mil back and the OA again blotting out this fqy as of
7/1. First noted weakly at 0940 tune-in with quick, clear ID by OM (burst out,
simply, with "Radio Mil !"). By 1025 recheck, was totally bombing in with pops
and t/cks, as strong as ever. Nice listening station, actually. The 6010.04
unid previously hrd, weakly, not noted, nor the usual heterodyne mess. Suspect
that one was indeed R. Inconfidencia, uncovered by Mil's temporary absence, as
suggested and IDed by Herk and Bob Wilkner. Thanks for the assist, gents!
PAPUA NEW GUINEA - Very nice opening on 7/1 with host of 90 meter PNGs all
showing up around 1000+ in Chicagoland, and fading up to full levels by 1015+.
Bandscan showed 3385 Radio East New Britain (Rabaul) with OM nx in EE and Tok
Pidgin at 1004; 3365 R. Milne Baya, Alotau, with YL ancr and similar
programming; 3290 R. Central Boroko weaker than the others; 3205 R. West Sepik
(Sandaun) with fair signal, again OM in EE and Tok Pidgin. Also this same
date, noted all the 60 meter Brazilians also strong by 0915 -- nice conditions,
although usual horrendous summer static crashing, non-stop. Andes opening never
transpired, tho traces of 4790 Chiclayo going AN, around 0930. (Perry, Illinois)
