** BRAZIL. 11855.749, July 12 at 0533, JBA talk, S1-S2, obviously the
always off-frequency R. Aparecida. Next check at 1206 I remeasure it
at 11855.754 (11780 RNA is also audible now) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** CHINA. 9255, July 12 at 1328, VP talk in Chinese? Aoki/NDXC shows
this as a *jammed Sound of Hope frequency. No others noticed in this
area (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 7435, July 12 at 1152, pulse jamming vs weak
Chinese talk, i.e. CRI eastward from Beijing during this hour. Radio
Martí is on 7435 only at 03-05 UT: the incompetent DentroCuban Jamming
Command lets it run anyway, Commies vs Commies! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** CUBA. 13739.243, July 12 at 1258, RHC is only S5-S7 here, and once
again knocked itself way off-frequency, 1301 ID; while // 13700.0 has
just come on much stronger, S9+20. Something`s always wrong at RHC

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 1319.959, July 12 at 1220 UT, low audible het
caused by KCLI Clinton always off-frequency, beating against something
I really can`t null, probably KLWN Lawrence KS approx. opposite
direxion. With both nulled I get some music, but I am really looking
for KWHN Fort Smith AR which is news/talk, since the July/August MW
News reported from UK:

``NORTH AMERICAN NEWS --- 1320 KWHN Fort Smith, AZ ]sic] –
operating at reduced power (1 kW vs licensed 5 kW) from a longwire
antenna due to flooding, also affecting 950 KFSA which is silent``
Just how much power can a longwire tolerate?

I do not measure KCLI until 1543 UT when there is no confusing QRM.
The MW Offset list shows relatively recent data, but no KWHN:

1319.9615 KCLI (Clinton, OK) 2018-01-23
1319.9947 KLWN (Lawrence, KS) 2018-01-23
i.e. 33.2 Hz apart, but KLWN off-frequency-minus itself by 5.3 Hz;
while my measurement of KCLI puts it 41 Hz below exact 1320.000 (Glenn

** OKLAHOMA. RF 34, July 12 at 1354 UT, KMYT-TV 41-1 Tulsa is
intermittently decoding, as Hepburn tropo map forecast for 15 UT shows
Enid in a fair/level 2 band, Tulsa in moderate/level 3. A number of
other Bad VHF/UHF signals, such as somewhat decoding on RF 21, KUOT
OKC at 1410; but I stick with this one exploring its subs:
41-1 is MyTV – no surprise
41-2 is GetTv
41-3 is GritTV
41-4 is HNI per PSIP, but H&I per bugs mostly in the LR corner; it
stands for Heroes & Icons, a channel we don`t get from OKC. 1400 UT
starting `High Chaparral`. Pro arte, I snap a number of DTV pixel
breakups on 41-4, such as:

** U S A. 9330.00, July 12 at 0526, WBCQ-6 with WLC Radio is holding
up tonight, still VG S9 to S9+10. Next chex starting at 1200 find NO
signal on 9330, nor at 1542. As I mentioned in previous report,
revised HFCC sked appears to be 12 hours out of whack. So if we don`t
hear 9330 at 19-24 UT, we should instead look for Arabic on 15180 at
19-22 and 11705 at 22-24. That makes a lot more sense propagationally
than starting 15180 at 2 am EST in Maine!

7490+v, July 12 at 1151, no signal from WBCQ (or WWCR yet). No sign
yet of WBCQ putting Brother Scare on this transmitter at ``all unsold
times``, since the other apocalyptix at WLC have pushed him off
9330+v. I wonder if he will be shoehorned into various `open` hour or
half-hour slots during the existing briefer span, instead of AAAWWW
playbax, etc. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 530, July 10 when visiting Wichita, no signals heard there
or around South Haven from the Kansas Turnpike Authority`s TIS
relaying Wichita NOAA Weather Radio. The FCC TIS list does not find it
(or never?) and it`s the very bottom entry in this long roster
since no callsign was known for it. With `K530AM` Vance AFB still
silent, on a quiet day we ought to be able to detect something from
nearby Kansas if any exist (Glenn Hauser, KS, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1190, July 12 at 1215 UT, ``69 degrees at our studios in
Beloit``, i.e. KVSV, U4 2300/90 watts should now be on day power,
immediately overcome by EWTN promos, from further KDMR Kansas City MO,
U2 5000/500. KVSV in north-central Kansas, pattern is circle tangent
direxional to NW, not very good for us to the south, while KDMR is ND
(Keep Doting on Maria Regina --- what else could it mean?) (Glenn
