    Best reception of LRA36 on 8 August here in New Brunswick, Canada, direct (about 100 km in from the ocean), while still quite poor, was between about 18:50 and 19:30 UTC with a high local noise level in the 19-m band not helping. Only the odd Spanish word was intelligible in the spoken word (seemed to be an extended interview between a male and female). And some of the music made it through but with significant fading down to inaudible level. However, not too bad consider the power of the transmitter (is it still at 1.5 kW or has the power been boosted?) and the distance. The high-speed CW at about 19:18 UTC made it through, more or less.

    I thought I heard something yesterday evening (20:00 UTC) using the Twente SDR, but today out in the woods at around 14:00 UTC the waterfall was blank.

    i was just listening LRA36 at corfu greece with a long wire (the one from the box stock pl-360) in the house at 11am utc time to 9510 khz … seems like a recorded program and he mentioned for 15476 (but no usb mode for me) however … signal at 9510 was very good because no drops & up to 52 db? with S/N full to 25 db … with a small tecsun pl-360, but after one hour it was closing down for 5 min & then up for 5 min … this was going for about 5-6 times till never open again … Now i noticed this post no signal at 15476 here (no usb mode but should detect something) will keep an eye later evening which conditions may be more helpful

      Signal peak here was around 1900 UTC, with Argentine music and station announcements. Also heard a 73 message in CW. Fading out around 1945 UTC.
