** NORTH AMERICA. 7470, June 27 at 0323, Station YHWH, anti-Christ
pirate at S9, checked after tip a few minutes ago from Walt Salmaniw,
BC, that this was strongest ever for him in BC. Pretty good signal
here, but modulation level fades quite a bit, or even cuts down and
up, independent of signal strength fades while watching the S-meter
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17530, June 27 at 1707, VOA news about the Democratic debate
last night with soundbites, good S9+10 signal fading to S7 probably
with some sporadic-E boost; this is the only known English broadcast
remaining from Grimesland NC, at 1700-1830. 1730 program changes to
`Reporters` Roundtable` discussing elexions in Africa, with African
accents (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7780, June 28 at 0235, something Slavic in English, must be
UKRAINE via WRMI, #1 transmitter back on tonight after missing last
night during World of Radio (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9265V, UT Friday June 28 at 0232, Ray Robinson talking about
David Sarnoff, so this must be `AWR Wavescan` as now scheduled on
WINB; also Mondays at 2100 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505.007, June 28 at 0236, WRNO is back! With hymn in
English, S9+10. Had been missing for a few weeks whenever checked in
01-13 UT span (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1210, June 27 at 0600 UT newscast under sportstalk, 0603
also a song QRM; 0604 mention Westwood I; 0605 ad for something in
Traverse City, 0606 BRR theme? 0607 opening `Beyond Reality Radio`; so
the latter items nail this as WJNL, Kingsley MI, 50 kW daytimer now
caught four days in a row on air in the nightmiddle, when I tend to
check around bedtime. SAH of 184/minute, correlating with the usual
beat against probably KGYN OK.

Besides the silent-night ``schedule`` of 0030-0900 UT, WJNL also has a
critical-hours proviso of 2.5 kW, which means reduced to that power 2
hours after sunrise and before sunset, i.e. 2230-2430 & 0900-1100 UT
--- Not inbooming, so could be on that power now instead of 50 kW.

Finally on the fifth night I try for WJNL earlier: 0248 UT June 28 I
detect the tones of Jim Bohannon, whom I had heard on the first night,
UT Monday after 0607 in a weekend playback. NRC AM Log shows WJNL an
affiliate of JBo among many others; yet the Jim Bohannon show itself
does not know this, despite a station list all on one page easily
searched; in fact no station known on 1210:
http://www.jimbohannonshow.com/station-finder/
Also now has the usual SAH of ~3 Hz, and KGYN ID at 0259 UT. And
another day passes with no other known DX logs of WJNL cheating (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15807, June 27 at 1348, strong multiple carriers about
0.65 kHz apart centered near here; S9 about same level as Es-enhanced
15825 WWCR, so I wonder if WTWW-3 be experimenting with some digital
mode, nominal 15810 but not heard often or lately. Only in FM mode do
we hear one clear tone at high E-flat, compared to my keyboard, or
approx. 1244 Hz per:
http://pages.mtu.edu/~suits/notefreqs.html
but it cuts off at 1415* --- not sure whether a local device.

Tuning around again at 1709, I hear some similar sounds not on 15807,
but first around 15861, and then at 60-62 kHz intervals but variable
strengths and some of them missing: 15617, 15556, 15496, 15435, 15373,
15250, 15129, 15007. Except for Saudio on 15435 only. I suspect this set
are from a local device, as on the PL-880, they weaken as I walk away
from the house (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
