XPA2 12138khz USB 2140utc 07/20/2014

Both had 599++ signals and I did get audio for both of these.

QU:  Does anyone have an idea where these are located?  The signal seems very strong with little fading today.

Hi Vince,

They seem to be using various sites. Two years ago bearings were taken during several transmissions from Greece, Italy, Norway and Germany. They came up with 3 locations. One near Moscow but I cannot remember where the others were. They were in the European part of Russia.

Thanks Ary...  man they put in a really strong signal into Miami County Ohio today...  I'm listening to HM01 right now and the Cuban  signal is fading up and down in the noise and I'm not sure I will be able to pick out the headers...  The propagation to Cuba lately hasn't been all that great.

Polytones in 5F groups from 1900z until end tone 1904z; 15884kHz USB

Polytones in 5F groups from 1920z until end tone 1924z; 14984kHz USB weaker

Polytones in 5F groups from 1940z until end tone 1944z; 14384kHz USB stronger; but still weaker than the 1900z signal
