** CANADA. 93.5, May 31 at 2227 UT, sporadic E of French Canadian talk
overcomes marginal Kansan, see USA; 2233 with 204 AC phone, weather
for Winnipeg and Churchill; maybe ID in passing partly faded starting
CK- but could still be CBC/RC. Still at 2237 when hardly anything
else. None of the Manitobans fit but this does, just over in Ontario,
and the only FF 93.5 in Ont. per WTFDA Database:

``CKSB-7-FM relays CKSB-1050 93.5 KENORA ON French NEWS/TALK ICI
RADIO-CANADA PREMIERE 20.0 kW H&V 100.0m HAAT 49-46-06 94-30-17``

CBC acquired the private CKSB 1050 St-Boniface long ago and added it
to its French network, kept the callsign, not CBWF. I guess it had
been a private affiliate of CBC/SRC. 1542 km = 958 stmi from Kenora to
Enid, ideal Es distance.

93.1, May 31 at 2227 UT, telco-quality talk in English by a native
person about ceremonies, residential schools, the scandal in BC.
``First Nations`` terminology which is typically Canadian but may be
spreading south of the border, where it should be banned for the sake
of DX identification. Closest to Kenora PTA is this, but HOT AC?

``CFOB-FM 93.1 FORT FRANCES ON HOT AC THE BORDER 21.0 kW H&V 0.0 m
HAAT 48-36-10 93-26-53 C27E``

How about Manitoba? The only 93.1 is also allegedly musical:
``CHPO-FM 93.1 PORTAGE LA PRARIE MB COUNTRY COUNTRY 93.1 27.0 kW H&V
73.0 m HAAT Horiz, 0.0 Vert, 49-58-09 98-22-27``

92.1, May 31 at 2255 UT, ``This is Blaine? 92`` or ``Play 92``?
Looking thru all the hundreds of 92.1 listings I don`t find those or
anything rhyming, one syllable with a long-A. Except this is close!
``CHMX-FM 92.1 REGINA SK 90'S HITS PLAY 92.1 100.0 kW H&V 190.0m HAAT
50-30-42 104-33-29`` 1653 km = 1027 stmi. Mixes with dead air $tereo
signal, nearby? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13521 trace, 13580 S7, 13639 S9, 13761 S5, 13821 S2-S3, 13882
trace, all approx., May 31 at 1426, spurblobs with telltale F# tone
and music modulation on the stronger ones, ~61 kHz intervals out of
13700-AM; something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EAST TURKISTAN [non]. As heard on NPR ATC via KOSU until 2058 UT
May 31:

Who The Uyghurs Are And Why China Is Targeting Them
May 31, 2021 4:25 PM ET
Heard on All Things Considered
Ramtin Arablouei, co-host and co-producer of Throughline.
8-Minute Listen

NPR's history podcast Throughline bring us the story of why the Uyghur
people have become the target of what many are calling a genocide in
China.

https://www.npr.org/2021/05/31/1001936433/who-the-uyghurs-are-and-why-china-is-targeting-them

Here`s the Throughline podcast page of almost one-hour episodes, but
not yet this one apparently:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6974.911-AM, May 31 at 0234, soft pirate music at
S7-S9. Lots of unID logs:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,82284.0.html
who do not realize that on this exact off-frequency, Nowhere Radio has
been reported before including by me on April 25, May 1 and 13;
however definite IDs were lacking. Same transmitter anyway, but only
the op can specify the name(s) used on any occasion. At this time I
also have a trace of music on 6970-USB (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7475-AM, May 31 at 0312, Station YHWH at S9/+10 into
Corinne, N Utah SDR; 0317 ID asserting he is in North America; deep
fades and occasional peaks higher. Tnx to tip from Eric Fetters-Walp
near Seattle WA. Rick Barton, AZ was also hearing it well, but I found
the Surprise AZ SDR had only a weak S5 signal. Rick says:
``yes, Glenn, anytime you use the Surprise AZ antenna you are hearing
from near me. I live just off Greenway Rd and the Surprise city limits
are 6 miles to my west. 73 -rb`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. Some marginal notes are mixed with FMDX under USA

** ROMANIA. RRI: ``Glenn, Re: Romania, the second Ţigăneşti
transmitter is still off the air after five weeks. 9550 at 0000 and
7375 at 0300 for English to North America have been missing during
that time; presumably other transmissions as well. Must be a major
transmitter failure that Radicom has been unable to resolve. Stephen
Luce, Houston, Texas`` (WOR iog)

** U S A. 10m-band beacons, mostly JBA with fading by sporadic E, May
31, some relogs and some new:

Middletown in SW OH, the middle town between Cincy and Dayton.

** U S A. 12040, May 31 at 2314, WEWN Spanish now here ex-12050, tnx
to tip from Jorge Freitas on the WOR iog; checked via W8BUG remote at
Knoxville/Oak Ridge. Nothing on 12050 now but as JF says:
``12040 31/May 2016 2045 USA WEWN in Spanish. Changed the frequency to
exit Ndarason's QRM? Interviewing a priest talking about Mary. Fair
Signal. (Jorge Freitas-B) 73 Jorge Freitas, Local time -3 UT,
Feira de Santana, Bahia 12°14´S 38°58´W - Brasil, Tecsun PL-660,
XHDATA, Antenna Delta Loop and LW 20 meters``

Assuming the total hours are as on ex-12050, would be 14-24 UT, while
Ndarason via Woofferton is 19-21 only, but long an annoying collision
during that bihour. Now 12040 will collide with KSDA at 2200-2230
only. The other Guamanian, KTWR is also on 12040 but off by 1300
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. May 31 at 2111-2130 UT I was getting a number of 10m
beacons, see above, from OH, IN and IL; checked after not getting any
88+ MHz FM Es DX on the DX-398. But then from 2215 with DXMAP MUF
spiking to 100 MHz, I move to the Nissan stock caradio, to find:

93.1, May 31 at 2223 UT, ``93.1, The ---`` sounds like one syllable. I
have to cope with marginal KS and OK signals not DX and this may be
one of them rather than usual dominant ``My 93.1`` KHMY in Pratt KS.
WTFDA Database shows no OK or KS with a The --- slogan, so maybe skip
but not enough data!

93.5, May 31 at 2224 UT, ``My Country 93 - 5`` -- that`s only KKDY, 95
kW, Burdett KS, which is a tiny town west of Great Bend. Then I have
French! See CANADA. Faded by 2241, back to KKDY with 785 AC for
northern Kansas.

95.3, May 31 at 2225 UT and continually, KOKC OKC talk is solid; hard
to believe it`s just a 250-watt translator K237GE of 10 kW 1520; but
it does have high-tower advantage, I think, tho WTFDA has default 0.0
entries for HAAT!

92.1, May 31 at 2251 UT, ad for Tri-Hospital.com ? But doesn`t
connect; searching on the name leads to Port Huron, Michigan, but
there is no 93.5 near there of the several in MI; nor Sarnia ON, and
well outside the current PTA - probable target area.

92.1, May 31 at 2258 UT, ``Your Country Q-92`` --- There are a few Q92
stations with or without hyphen in US, one in Clinton, north-central
Arkansas, too far for GW, and none in the PTA, none in Canada. No 92.1
hits at all on Your Country.

92.1, May 31 at 2258 past 2300 UT, dead air with $tereo pilot mixing
with modulating 92.1 stations! May be KS/OK rather than DX. No, not my
own RF feeder which is definitely off (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. CBS News Sunday Morning: I`m still recording it myself off
KWTV, but starting to watch the May 30 via website
https://www.cbsnews.com/sunday-morning/
I find that altho the file is still 62+ minutes skipping the
commercials, now it has been set up to insert ads separately at every
break, and they are inevitable, so back to my tape where I may zap
them. Meanwhile I let the webversion play and find that it has stalled
at some point, won`t restart, but if I move the timer a bit I get more
ads before it restalls at the same image. They`ve screwed it up
again!

BTW, last week the Nature segment was not extended either. This week
on air we get only 27 seconds of Yosemite. But *must see* the full
2:15 version separately on website, mostly waterfalls; after a
30-second edible cookie commercial (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
