Here is some carrier on 7290 kHz. But most probably this carrier belongs to the CNR1 (100 kW transmitter near Beijing).
LOC: Kyiv, Ukraine
RX: Degen DE-1103 portable
ANT1: Two phased external wires (2x10 meters approx.)
ANT2: Long wire (25 meters)
ANT3: Homemade M0AYF wide bandwidth active loop
ACC: Homemade passive preselector, homemade phasing device

Just saw the Kashi (China) Transmitter appear at 0157---I never heard a peep of the Chilean.

I saw this too late to even try for the Chilean.  Darnit!  I love that they've taken inspiration from RNW, though.  Yo se exactamente que es esa inspiracion, porque me siento al mismo manera. 

I hope they test again, and use a frequency that isn't stomped on by China.  Good luck, eh?
