** CHINA. 7370, July 2 at 1657, JBA carrier. Aoki/NDXC shows this must
be a CNR1 jammer against RFA Chinese via Tajikistan, this hour only.

7300, July 2 at 1658 another JBA carrier, CNR1 jammer against RTI
until 1700 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 11769.902, July 2 at 1650, VON surprisingly good in
English, S9+10/S8, discussing tourism in Africa on its favorite
new/revived frequency. No QRM here from PBS Xinjiang, Urumqi, East
Turkistan, as others have complained, scheduled all the way from 23 to
18 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SINGAPORE. 11795, July 2 at 1410, poor S3-S5 signal woman speaking;
intonation sounds a bit like German, but no words recognizable;
Aoki/NDXC shows it`s really Hindi! From BBCWS this semihour only.
Aimed NW from Kranji, we are *way* off-target for this. Not much else
direct from Asia on band except North Korea.

7355, July 2 at 1658, woman in Chinese?, VP S4-S5, KNLS? No, it`s
finished at 1500. 1659, continuous beeping mixed with music, signature
of BBC, maybe leading into timesignal when beeping stops at 1700:00
but stays on with programming. Aoki shows it`s really BBC Korean at
1530-1830 via SINGAPORE, altho Nippon no Kaze via Taiwan is also on
7355 at 1630-1700.

Pleased to be getting even this much signal from Asia so late into one
of the longest days of the year (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 11600, July 2 at 1651, raspy tones of Brother
Scare, S4-S6. Aoki shows via BULGARIA at 1400-1700. HFCC shows
Kostinbord available 24 hours, 50 kW at 306 degrees to W Europe and
here we are beyond (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 12030, Tue July 2 at 1645, Arabic talk but playing medieval
Christian choral music, S8-S5. It`s REE crusading to the Mideast at
1630 M-F, but well audible back here oppositely (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9460, July 2 at 1653 nice strumming music, S9-S6, from VOT
Turkish service scheduled here 1600-2100, if they don`t screw it up,
500 kW, 310 degrees from Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENIING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505, July 2 at 0433, no signal from WRNO. Other reports
indicate it now turns off circa 0400 if it has been on at all, and
thus no more Chinese on and off until 1300*. `Grace for Today`, the
Chinese-language broadcast, still has a place on the website which
never gave any exact schedule info:

** U S A. 5085, July 2 at 0546, WTWW-2 is on not with rock music, but
a far-right political talk show. Reminds me of one Ted ran for a while
last year, originating nearby in Tennessee; not sure if this is the
same one. It`s hard to copy what the host is saying despite bigsig
along with the 5072/5098 JBA spurs. But I make notes for the next few
minutes.

He has a YL sidekick talking at first, about Antifa, but most of the
time she just makes assenting noises. Topic is Portland, where there
was some kind of confrontation; ``crush them!`` Says program is
Sunday-Thursday and the third hour is coming up. He likes 3-hour
format better than 1-hour. Already at 0551 he says ``Be right back
after top-of-hour news break``. But then an adstring for questionable
products such as how to collect $1795 a month from the federal
government; somebody selling turkey meat; survivalist food stocking.

It`s the Pete –something- show, and at 0555 starting the third hour,
so either his clock is way fast or this is a playback. I thought the
Portland affair occurred several weeks ago but maybe this is something
newer? Deb Jordan is the guest(?) co-host(?). They go on to equate
liberals with communists; ``Portland is Communist Central``. Keeps
going right past real ToH with no ID break by 0603. 0609 plugs his
website preparewithpete.com i.e. Pete Santilli, selling emergency food
supplies for hefty prices; why not Walmart? Nothing there about a
radio show.

He doesn`t give a phone number but nevertheless takes a call, another
clue that this be an editied playback. Interrupted by some dead air.
``Communists have infiltrated our country``. Then refers to being on
WTWW (and no other stations mentioned), asking calls to 563-999-1479
supposedly at or via WTWW, but search on that exchange leads to
Muscatine, Iowa. I reawaken at 0650 just as he is signing off until
9:00 tomorrow = live at 0200 UT if referring to CDT zone. Then a VPN
ad as I turn off. Is there anything about this at http://wtww.us
website? Of course not! altho still featured is the long-gone `Dave
Ramsey Show` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9475, July 2 at 1653, no signal from WTWW-1, but weak S9-S6
vs noise level and just barely modulated on 5830. So once again Ted
has failed to make the night/day frequency change nominally at 1400,
and now it`s almost ``noon`` when 51 meters is not usable. A pity for
SFAW and PPPP. But it does qualify as both SSOB and OSOB, continuing
past 1701+ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17774.994, July 2 at 1416, S9+20 of dead air except for some
hum; had not been there when I went by about 1410. So KVOH has come on
without modulation, perhaps with sporadic E boost. Next check at 1641
no signal at all when normally it would at least be detectable without
Es. About 6 Hz off to the low side, so we still wonder if it`s the old
or new transmitter having problems (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 103.9 WBFM, July 2 circa 1630 UT on caradio, a weak gospel
huxter here where normally I hear nothing. No significant tropo
enhancement beyond marginal Level 1 per Hepburn map.

WTFDA shows one likely Okie, as in Osage: KOSG Pawhuska, 6/6 kW, 100
meters, ``SOUTHERN GOSPEL - THE GOSPEL STATION``

But always must also check Kansas, where we find KHYM, Copeland,
100/100 kW, 229m, ``SOUTHERN GOSPEL - PRAISE & ENCOURAGEMENT``.
Copeland is an insignificant town WSW of Dodge on US Hwy 56, except
for KHYM which has a bunch of translators in KS & OK,
https://khymfm.org/listen-near-you/
including 90.3 in Fairview near Enid, but WTFDA DB does not connect
KHEV with KHYM. In fact you will hear KHYM IDs there a lot more than
KHEV.

KHYM is almost exactly twice as far from Enid as KOSG, 276 km/171
miles vs 141 km/87 miles, but I suspect the 16x power differential
still makes KHYM more likely. Of course if there is a next time I
could try to match it to 90.3 KHEV (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
