** CUBA [and non]. 11860, June 1 at 0419, beepery again on a Cuban
jammer frequency vs Martí but which funxions only in the daytime. Now
there are two different pitches from slightly different frequencies
which are beating against the JBA spur carrier of RHC 11850 which is
on 11860, so BFO not necessary to hear them. Pattern now is: very
rapid strings of one tone, pause, alternating with same very rapid
strings of the other tone. Too fast to count but estimated about 20 at
a time. There is also a SAH from a second weak carrier on 11860,
presumably the Sa`udi Yemeni, known to be slightly off-frequency
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** JAPAN [non]. 9490, June 1 at 0406, Japanese with CCI from a LAH but
no jamming. NHK is relayed 0300-0500 via Nauen, GERMANY for Mideast
but only other listee at this hour is Tibet. Radio República relay via
FRANCE is supposed to be over at 0200, but Issoudun is known to be
off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. On 5/31/21 10:26 PM, Glenn Hauser wrote: ``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!`` --- Doug Smith replies on the WTFDA gg:

An FM translator can (often does) have *twelve* HAATs and for that
reason, most don't have a HAAT entry in the FCC database.

(For full-power stations, "average terrain" is calculated along eight
radials, every 45 degrees, around the tower; then, all eight radials
are averaged. For translators, twelve radials are used -- and the
highest radial determines the maximum permissible power.)

You can calculate the HAAT of a translator (or any other station) on
this page:
https://www.fcc.gov/media/radio/haat-calculator

It has no legal standing but allows you to compare a translator's
coverage to a full-power station's on an equal basis`` (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** SAUDI ARABIA [and non]. 15170.061, June 1 at 0425, S8-S9 of Arabic,
0427 Qur`an. We are now getting into summer solstitial `midnite sun`
propagation mode of higher `night` MUFs due to increased insolation of
high-latitude paths such as this, which peaks about 62 degrees, almost
reaching Reykjavík. Scheduled 0300-0600, the only 15170 station
anywhen. Previous summers this has attained soporific status, but more
sunspots would be helpful. Typically skewed Riyadh frequency.

Several other JBA carriers on 19m band now, and even one on 17530 at
0431: but that would be low-latitude T-E MWV Madagascar in Chinese.

15170+, next night June 2: 0316 continuous Qur`an S9 fluttery to S7,
soporific enough until 0359 announcement and A.S. ID, then mostly talk
and weakening. A lot more carriers on 19m now, surely all except 15230
Cuba originating in the dayside, Afroeurasia. Sesqui-decades ago,
15170 would have been Tahiti (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Re WORLD OF RADIO 2088 monitoring: Correxion: 6159.905, not
6159.105; fixed:
Also confirmed Sun May 30 from 2200.1 on Area 51 via WBCQ 6159.905 as
measured by NA5B remote in MD, S7-S5 but sounds VG signal. IS & ID
loop from 2158 tune-in, other music across hourtop before WOR start.

Next:
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
2200 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955 [jammed?] to SSE

** U S A. 9940, June 1 at 0335, WTWW on here and // 5085 with rock
song ``My Mother-in-Law``. 5085 is known as WTWW-2 but so is 9940 new
ex-9930. A test, I guess. Neither of the WTWW-1 frequencies is on now,
5830 & 9475, so could be #1 transmitter on #2 frequency? Or what about
the #3 transmitter? Hardly ever active on registered 12105 or 15810.
Would be of interest if anyone ever hear WTWW on any three frequencies
at once. Tnx to tip from Jorge Freitas, Bahia, Brasil who noted the
duoply at 0253-0313. Next night, June 2 at 0040 check, only 5085 is
on, with rock, a bit early for a weekday; and still solo at 0110
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 28204-CW, June 1 at 1523, beacon W0WF/B, JBA I copied as
W9WF/B, but this one is listed by WJ5O: ``28.204 WØWF * SAINT CHARLES,
MISSOURI # 20W, VERTICAL (*) Daylight New 16 June 14``

QRZ.com: ``W0WF USA flag USA, JERRY D WATTS, SAINT CHARLES, MO 63303.
IF YOU COPY MY BEACON ON 28.204 PLEASE E-MAIL ME A SIGNAL REPORT AND
YOUR LOCATION TO W0WF.B@AOL.COM``

There is also an even weaker one slightly lower between 28203 and
28204, perhaps 28203.3, WB9OTX, Versailles IN I have logged recently.

28199.5-CW, June 1 at 1527, DE WA4OTD/B CARMEL, IN. This is the one
still listed on wrong frequency by WJ5O, 27288.8 with 5 watts;
stronger than W0WF now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Re: ``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!

Dave Hascall replies on the WTFDA gg: ``Hi Glenn. Could your 93.1 be
Lima Ohio, The Fan? Dave in Indy`` --- Could, but too many other
possibilities and at this time I was getting Manitoba/Ontario. That`s
WWSR, only 3/3 kW (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
