June 18 - Heard definite improvement in the signal on 7400 AM, from 0730+ UT. Recently had not been able to hear
the 2.5 watt signal, but today occasionally above threshold level audio (better than normal propagation or slight power
increase?); at 0742, heard bits and pieces from the distinctive segment of Russian IS, IDs in English ("Radio Channel
Eastern Star"
) and Russian, plus political spot about the "Socialist revolution." Most of the time I heard just a stronger
than usual carrier, but some segments with positive music/singing. Suggest the best chance for reception is to catch
the Russian IS segment, as it is the most recognizable feature here. Is definitely a challenge!

Songs are identified with Shazam if needed. I usually use KiwiSDR receivers. Reception from my QTH is using an SDRPlay RSP1A for SWL with a 40 meter band Inverted V at 40 feet. Kenwood TS-570D for ham use.
