I've been getting a broadcast station on 7290 after 0200z (6 pm Pacific Standard Time). At first I thought it was W1AW, but later I determined that the bc was in a foreign language and in AM. I thought at first it was in Spanish, but now I'm not sure. If it's from the Americas the stn is doing a big no-no since as we all know Region 2 hams have up to 7300. Any idea on who it might be?

China Radio International (via Kashi-Saibagh) sked 02-0257 in Urdu might be your unID..(@ close-down, CRI IDs in CH & gives a web address, so hang about 'til :55 or so & see what develops)..if you're listening @ 13-16 UT (5-8 A PST), you'll have CNR1 rattling away on 7290//6030,6145,6175,7230,7275,7305,7345..when conditions are right, i can hear 'em with the receiver off..(located just N. of San Diego).

A few years ago it used to be Voice of Russia before they shut down shortwave broadcasts.

I'm north of you, in Sacramento, and I know that 40m is worthless in the morning because of CNR stns operating during Chinese "prime time" hours. Also, CNR has morning (China time) broadcasts around 0100z (5 pm PST) and 40m is a mess due to it. You noted that 7290 is a morning freq of CNR (different than CRI, CRI is the external service, CNR is domestic), so it's likely a CNR bc.

Hindi and Urdu can sound similar to Spanish at times, especially if the signal is weak, fading etc.

A few of the vowel sounds are similar. I've been fooled more than once.
