** BRAZIL. 4885.023, Sept 22 at 0551, Rádio Clube do Pará music
measured here on VP signal, but at least I can hear it, even tho or
because of using my indoor longwire, after a storm which deposited
more than one inch of rain, also attenuating if not eliminating the
high line noise level. Recheck at 0619 during multi-station ID
including some MW outlets, which is what Pará does, not the other ZY
on 4885, Rdif. Acreana. However, when measuring this, I heard a beat
with another carrier; too early for Korea. Either it`s Acreana
underneath, or the Pará carrier is slightly unstable. Richard Langley
had recently recorded 4885 overnight and reported nothing from Brasil
but Pará (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL [and non]. 9630.408, Sept 22 at 0610, R. Aparecida music on
perpetual offset.

9664.847, Sept 22 at 0615, Voz Missionária preaching in Portuguese,
another perpetual offset, both with fair signals more than usual and
not much else on 31mb now.

9645.00, Sept 22 at 0609, JBA carrier between the two Brazilians which
once would surely have been R. Bandeirantes, but doubt it has resumed
SW. Per EiBi, it`s Vatican Radio, Sunday-only Ukrainian at 0605-0700,
altho CNR1 Beijing is also on (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 10870, Sept 22 at 1255, CNR1 jammer, Chinese talk; but no
more in the 9s, 10s, 11s, nor 12s, 13s, by 1305, except JBA 11640, VP
11785 and better 11825 before 1300 which are also probably CNR1
jammers (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, Sept 22 at 0557, RHC English is S9+10 but suptorted;
6165 a JBA carrier S7-S9, but JBM? 6100 however is S9+20/30 with good
mod. 6060, originally A-19 scheduled for English at 0500-0700, has
been gone for months, but still in Aoki/NDXC (along with Spanish
0000-0500), not EiBi. 5040 is OFF already altho it was VG a few
minutes earlier. Typically they turn it off before the English hour
concludes! (BTW, last Sunday, Wolfgang Bueschel says Esperanto at 0700
on 6100 was absent; I`m not awake that late). (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13700, Sept 22 at 1305, RHC fails to provide any FM spurblobs
today; something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, Sun Sept 22 at 0603,, no signal from VON. Oops, I
meant to check whether audible on 11770- or 9690-, but dozed before
getting around to it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2000 monitoring: confirmed Sat Sept
21 at 2100 on WRMI 9955, S7-S9 after 2058 IS & ID loop. My duplicated
intro almost succeeds. Upcut misses ``This is Glenn Hauser with World

completely. No more chances to hear WOR Saturday evenings until:

** U S A. 9330.00, Sept 21 at 2057, rock music at S9+30 and still past
2105. The WBCQ 500 kW SuperStation is obviously back on air testing
after several weeks off; supposedly all afternoon and evening it will
be on 12120 as registered, but now at 2107 check RTTY from presumed
NAU Isabela, Puerto Rico is still unencumbered, whew. At 2110, 9330 is
concluding a non-Peggy Lee version of ``Fever``, and has surged to
S9+40. More and more rock, but break in transmission at 2146*-*2148.

I`ve kept an eye on AW`s twits, but so far no advance or current
notice of this activity. Only next day do I find these, with
timestamps in unknown zone, EDT? Or UT+1 from my computer?

``Allan Weiner‏ @AllanWBCQ
Worlds Superstation back on air. Testing now on 9330khz. 500kw. Watch
them electric meters spin!! 5:48 PM - 21 Sep 2019 from Maine, USA

Allan Weiner‏ @AllanWBCQ
Superstation back testing last night on 9330 kHz. Sounding good
everywhere. Tonight on Area51 Radio NewYork International with John P
Lightening. For 21 Years -radio madness. Tune 5130khz. Why do we do
this? For radio freedom of expression. Transmitter building for 500kw.
5:09 AM - 22 Sep 2019``

Meanwhile I posted this to the WOR iog at 2132 UT Sept 21:
``Superstation finally back on, 9330.00 blasting up to 40 over 9
before and after 2100 with rock. 12120 still occupied by RTTY from
presumed NAU Puerto Rico. Glenn``

At 2252 some narration over music. Quick AW legal IDs fire sharp at
ToH 2200 & 2300 over music. But 2301 full WBCQ canned ID and switch to
``Sound the general alarm!`` introducing `Radio TimTron Worldwide`
which must be // 5130+v where originally scheduled this hour,
inaudible here; mostly playing novelty tunes. Break off air at
2346*-*2347 and music after that may be test fill rather than RTTWW? I
don`t hear him any more. But at 0000 Sept 22, Falling Star Network
logo, WBCQ jingle ID as on Area 51, and `GRITS` show; now only
S9+10/20. Seems to be live/current as mentions date September 21.

9330.00 checked again at 0127 Sept 22, now amid `Lumpy Gravy Show`
with Larry Will & Jane, but mentioning 5110 more than once including
at 0130, so must be a very old replay.

The 500? kW audiblizes this on my noised ATS-909 next to the TVs and
computer. Seems to go off at 0150, and I don`t check on better
receivers until 0329 when there is still a VP carrier on 9330.00, so
maybe it stayed on but propagation outfaded it (and/or power greatly
reduced). BTW, at this time it`s stronger than JBA carrier remnants of
9395 & 9955 WRMI, despite its southern-advantage. Nothing further
heard on 9330 morning of Sept 22, but maybe will resume Sunday
afternoon/evening? Not by 1700 check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395, Sept 21 at 2108 tune-in, Rudy Espinal WRMI ID in
Spanish only, odd time! Because it`s within a ``Back to the Music``
oldies block per Bob Biermann after him, S9+10/20. Which reminds me,
are they relaying VOA News anymore? Haven`t run across it lately which
used to be at unpredictable times within such hours; but maybe quit
after VOA stopped updating newscasts wherever they were accessing them
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9955, Sunday September 22 at 1253, `I Love Italy`
acknowledging reception reports. In Italian, quite different accent
than we hear from Roberto Scaglione in Sicilia; I wonder if this guy
be an expatriate. Nothing about the show on the WRMI Programming page;
scheduled Sundays 1245-1300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9475 & 5830, Sept 21 at 2112, WTWW-1 AWOL from both possible
frequencies, as is almost always the case now. No loss! with PPPP
finally laid to rest? But why would ministry HQ in Laporte CO be cool
with WTWW mainly airing Ted`s rock/ham stuff on #2 transmitter? If
they cared, could insist on PPPP appearing on #2 if #1 be down.

5085, Sat Sept 21 at 2330, WTWW-2 is not on, when `Theatre Organ in
the Ozarx` used to air. Still off at 2358, but on by 0032 Sept 22 with
rock; next check 0127, Ted ham stuff, not TOITO either (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1480, Sept 22 at 1350 UT, KNGO Dallas in Vietnamese with no
QRM from closer KQAM Wichita which ought to be dominant by now; except
a slow SAH: maybe KQAM carrier on, but unmodulated. 1410 KGSO Wichita
is normally loud. See also 1520 log for more Vietnamese (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1520, Sunday Sept 22 at 1311 UT, W&M Vietnamese chat mixing
with KOKC OKC, almost same level thanx to KOKC`s self-attenuation; and
with slow SAH of almost 1 Hz, 56/minute = 0.93. From here, can`t null
one to hear the other. Obviously it`s KYND Cypress (Houston) TX active
again with such programming, and I wonder if it`s same as on 1560
KGOW? Yes! On second receiver they match with a slight echo. What
about 1480 KNGO Dallas? That one was supposedly duplicating KGOW. But
they are not, now and later chex; similar chat, but at times one is in
music, the others talking (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENIING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 3325, Sept 22 at 1246, S5-S7 carrier, but can`t make out
any modulation. NBC Bougainville or VOI Palangkaraya (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 8000, Sept 22 at 1307, JBA carrier, intriguing; not a
listed SOH/CNR1 jammer frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** ANTARCTICA [and non]. 15476-, Sept 21 at 1357, JBA carrier direct
from LRA36; during their publicized special for arrival of spring
(really not until 0750 UT Monday Sept 23 --- about as late as it can
get on our calendar). Meanwhile, I know to have any chance of hearing
more than that, I need a remote receiver. I suspect many of them are
maxed out because of this. I finally find one in Brasil (not the main
Pardinho one) which connects at 1326, with W&W in Spanish talking
about Antártida, but not strong & clear enough to follow much. At 1335
I notice some ACI from 15470 in Chinese, i.e. CNR1 jamming against RFA
Tibetan via Tajikistan at 11-14.

I`m back on the SDR at 1408 when reception has improved, just in time
to hear a quick greeting by the well-known voice of Jeff White, and
some other voices. 1410 music starts and 1415 with lyrix maybe in
English. No more talk after that, and this SDR cuts me off at 1428.
The special is supposed to be repeated sometime later today.

At 1458 I try on UTwente, finding 15475 occupied by martial Chinese
vocal music, 1500 timesignal and CNR ID; and now noise jamming is
piled on. Aoki, EiBi, and HFCC do not show anything on 15475 at this
time, but the ChiCom must know better; a pox upon them.

Or this jamming is very outdated. Back on June 27-28, Observer,
Bulgaria reported about Radio Free Asia:
``1500-1600 NF 11675 SAI 100 kW / 300 deg EaAs Chinese,x 15475 BIB``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13500, 13565, 13635, 13765, 13830, 13900, 13965, 14030, Sept
21 at 1358, RHC-FM at 65-kHz intervals out of 13700-AM, but only the
inner ones have program modulation, extremely distorted, and with a
tone sounding lower than the usual F# above C-middle. The outer ones
get progressively weaker to only a trace at the margins. Hey, RHC, if
you`re going to broadcast in FM, at least make it clean and readable.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 15120, Fri Sept 20 at 2154, VOA in Bambara, via Grimesland
NC is very poor with carrier breakup/crackle, unlike // VG S9+25
13670. This is M-F only at 2130-2200. Why is Bambara so important to
VOA unlike countless other Afrolangs? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2000 monitoring: confirmed first
SWBC, Fri Sept 20 at 2200 on WRMI 9955, S7 vs local noise level. After
``WNYW`` style ID, not upcut; unusually this time I utter my
introductory dekaword twice to compensate, but that usually happens to
the 2100 broadcasts; hear what happen Saturday. WRMI does not show it
on websked, but RFPI knows it is newly scheduled every Wed at 2100 to
South America; instead of WOR:

Also confirmed UT Saturday Sept 22 at 0130 on WRMI 5850, S9+20/30 but
some fading; 5010 fair; 7780 JBA carrier in HNL.

** U S A. (7490v), UT Sat Sept 21 at 0000, WBCQ webcast of `AAAWWW`.
This week I do not check any of the SW frequencies, but AW says they
are all on except #4 on 6160v which ``flared out due to condensation``
when he tried to start it.

Says 5130v will start next week a ``good oldies program`` three nights
a week, Wed-Thu-Fri 7-9 pm [=23-01 into next UT days]; part of the
``loss leader`` $10/hour rate for two-hour minimum on that
transmitter. No politix this week, and Freddie is soon on the phone
with a lot of questions.

Frustratingly, SuperStation is still not operable, he thinx due to a
``design issue``. Two Continental engineers are up here today working
on it; this 500 kW #6 unit has been under construxion for three years.
He then goes into a very technical explanation, part of which I try to
follow: a driver issue. Output tube for 500 kW is a tetrode costing
$80K, and filament is water-cooled; 1000 amps at 19 volts. It takes 8
minutes to bring it up safely; runs on DC 3 phase. At 14 kv, 41 amps
to make 500 kW output. The antenna anyway now works nicely. Then he
gets into how bias is part of the electronic problem.

Here`s John Carver`s report on same: ``Tonight's show started on time
this evening on 7490. 5130 has the better signal but is cut off
promptly at 0100 so the next program can start. Voice over the theme
song says that 6160 is down this evening. Allan and Angela in the
studio. Opening remarks about families and compromise. Allan says 6160
transmitter is down because of condensation as the building it's in is
neither heated or air conditioned. Says it blew a lot of fuses and
such trying to start.

Next Allan states that they're having problems with the transmitter
for the superstation and there's been a couple engineers from the
company there for a week or two trying to work it all out. Problem is
with the huge water cooled tube and something about a bias. I'm a
spring maker by trade and not an electrician so am not up on all the
terminology. Allan believes it is a poor design and states that he and
Tim could probably do better but it's still under warranty so he's
letting the transmitter company handle it. He does say that the
antenna is working fine now.

First phone call at 0037 from Freddie. Talk about Allan's big
generators for the superstation, the generators used on the radio ship
and then locomotives. Reading of emails at 0055 and I can barely copy
the signal now. Lost the signal about 0102 and have no idea when the
program actually ended. John, Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** U S A. 1130, Sept 20 at 1853 UT check, KLEY Wellington KS is OFF
again. Still off at 1705 UT check Sept 21. It had been on since August
26 after a long hiatus since at least May 3 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1280, Sept 20 at 1853 UT check and Sept 21 at 1705, KSOK
Arkansas City KS still sounds much weaker than its usual 1 kW on
groundwave (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. A reply to my query, why isn`t 1590 KMIC flooded?

``Glenn, regarding KMIC: Although the transmitter site is near White
Oak Bayou in northwest Houston, that part of the metro area did not
get the same heavy rains as the eastern and southern parts. So the
water levels were up, but not enough to cause problems for KMIC.
Imelda was pretty much a non-event at my northwest Harris County QTH.

KMIC is listed as a U2 in WRTH and Radio-Locator also shows
non-directional daytime, so increased night coverage would indicate
they are not switching to the directional array.

KMIC is one of several sibling brokered time AM and FM stations in
greater Houston metro that runs Spanish language religion, sometimes
// depending on program bookings. Stephen Luce, Houston, Texas``

Stephen, glad you too are not flooded! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** CANADA. 800, Sept 20 at 1111 UT, CKLW playing a clip from `The

** CUBA. 13631, 13564, 13493, 13423, 13372 approx., Sept 20 at 1351,
RHC-FM service with F# tone out of 13700-AM. 13631 is S9+20, 13564 is
S9+10, 13493 is S5 vs CODAR; 13423 weak, and 13372 trace. As I then
move to the plus side at 1401 find 13700 has cut to dead air, and soon
off before I can find any more. Normally 13700 & FM galaxy stay on
another hour. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** MEXICO. 760, Sept 20 at 1108 UT, `Hablando Claro` program or
segment with item about something that happened in Mexico 2+ years ago
on Sept 19, 2017; with WJR nulled. Of the four 760 Mexicans, most
likely XEABC, EdoMex, 70/10 kW with variety format, rather than
Chiapas or Jalisco, and surely not Sonora

Searching on that title and XEABC leads to a media directory at Radio

** U S A. Re: why isn`t KMIC, 1590, address in Pasadena TX. flooded?
KMIC transmitter site is not around Pasadena = SE of Houston closer to
the coast, but NW of downtown Houston between Aldine and Spring Valley
and not far from White Oak Bayou, which is flood prone:

** U S A. 1630 kHz, Sept 20 at 0256 UT, pop/disco music with very
heavy beat timed at 124/minute, surely not what KKGM Ft Worth would be
playing. 0257.5, KCJJ Iowa City ID and into ``CBS News on the Hour``
--- but 2.5 minutes BEFORE the hour!!

I thought KCJJ was a talk station, but NRC AM Log shows split format,
also AC. Per
https://www.1630kcjj.com/show/hit-music/
`Hit Music` plays from 9 pm to 5 am CDT [02-10 UT], even more on
Sundays. Some personalities elsewhen may be DJs rather than talkers,
unclear.

Was the early news an aberration? Check again ~3 hours later, this
time not until 0558.0 UT does it ID and run `CBS News on the Hour`
only 2 minutes early. Dirty little secret which apparently still
applies: some major network news ``on`` the hour is pre-recorded a few
minutes before for flexibility and to allow quick fixes if anything go
wrong. If a total disaster, they can always try again really live on
the hour. But you would think affiliates would not give this away by
airing it early, especially when it`s titled ``On The Hour``! (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1680, Sept 20 at 0548 UT, NO signaL from KRJO Monroe LA,
music station which normally dominates; instead music and WPRR ID from
Ada MI northeast; nulling that should reveal KRJO from the southeast,
but nothing except some other very weak signal from one of the four
other more distant US 1680s. Still no KRJO at 1136 UT, just a fast SAH
from somethings (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

hymn ``El Señor es mi Pastor``. 0558 station address of ``15-90 AM``

Why isn`t KMIC flooded? AM transmitter sites like swamps. Let`s see,
is the KMIC call a legacy of Radio Disney? Can we come up with a good
gospel slogan? Something better than ``Manantial Iesus Cristus``. This
DF is close but not the same as the due-south Spanish I previously had

** CHINA. 9155, Sept 17 at 1329, Chinese VP from CNR1 jammer; none
audible in the 10s; 11460 & 11785 both JBA carriers at 1333; none in
the 12s or 13s; but 13855 is S3 in Chinese at 1351, CRI in Chinese

brainwashing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. Comparing the two RHC 19mb frequencies, Sept 16 at 2026:
15370 in Spanish song, not // 15140 in other music vamping. At 2030,
15140 goes into Portuguese but chops off at 2032.6* during This Day in
History; and 15370 continues, in choking Arabic. The foreign languages
don`t dare announce what times and frequencies they are on, since, you
never know when and where they will upshow. 15140 was supposed to stop
at 2030 after French, altho last check Sept 13 it was in Portuguese
before 2030.

Another check Sept 17 at 2008: 15140 OK in proper French; 15370 in
proper Portuguese but undermodulated with crackle on the modulation
and carrier. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** MADAGASCAR. 11965, Sept 16 at 2024 tuning across MWV hour in
English, I hear two words: ``vomiting, diarrhea`` ---- and keep right
on tuning! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15730, Sept 16 at 2026, VOA French with pronounced
long/short path echo, off by 2030. Also detected Sept 17 at 2007.
Haven`t heard any like this in a long time, as propagation in general
is so degraded against anything coming the long way around.
Calculating the delay as I have no way of measuring it: Grimesland NC
is only 1860 km from here short path, so would be 38215 km long path,
using 40075 km as the equatorial circumference of Earth. At speed of
light, SP takes only 0.006 second to get here, while LP takes .1275
second, so .1215 is the difference or about one eighth of a second.
The azimuth toward Africa is 94 degrees, so the bulk of the 250 kW
signal is radiating very close to opposite of here where we are almost
due west. Normally we get only a fraxion off the back of the beam,
while the LP peters out long before reaching here from the west. For
this to happen of course, it also takes a frequency/band which will
propagate both day and night. And the closer the source, the longer
the LP echo delay (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1999 monitoring: I missed it, but confirmed
by Mark Coady, Selwyn, Ontario, ODXA: ``7780, USA, WRMI at 0102 with
Glenn Hauser's “World of Radio” - Fair to Good at first but largely
lost to deep fading by 0111 Sept 17 – The bands pretty well died off
at this time with absolutely nothing from WRMI or any of the other
North American broadcasters and there were only a few weak
transmissions on the 80 meter ham band around 3755``.

Next we shall hear if WOR has really been canceled Wed at 2100 on WRMI
9955; last week it was replaced by `RFPI` in French, but the websked
still shows WOR. Also:

2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW

** U S A. 9455, Tue Sept 17 at 2125, S9/+10 of dead air, WRMI-8 must
not have turned off after scheduled APS Radio music at 1900-2100 M-F.
9395 & 9955 are modulating OK (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, Sept 17 at 2121, praise music in Spanish at S9/+10,
so KVOH is running overtime, supposed to close SW at 2100 Tue & Thu
per own sked revised Sept. 1;
http://voiceofhope.com/schedule/kvoh_program_grid.pdf
It`s the OSOB & SSOB, not even Kuwait on 17550, unless that`t the JBA
carrier circa 17550.6 rather than something local (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1590, Sept 17 at 0632 UT I find a strong dominant signal
with promo for Dave Ramsey on ``Smart Talk 1590, WCGO and 95-9 FM``,
0634 UT back to C2CAM. WCGO CoL is Evanston but tries to attach itself
to Chicago as the name implies. It`s U2 10/2.5 kW, with night pattern
aimed only NE! So for it to inboom here to the SW, it`s got to be on
day pattern ND and maybe day power too. Recheck next night, Sept 18 at
0350 UT, plug a website with chicago in it, but not as dominant,
losing to some Spanish from the south, see UNID.

NRC AM Log gives WCGO slogan ``The Talker`` instead and no FM. Per
WTFDA FMDB, 95.9 is, you guessed it, a mere 250-watt translator,
W240EH in Evanston, ``Chicago`s Smart Talk``. At least 1590 still gets
top billing as heard. And would you believe there is *another* 95.9
translator licensed to Evanston, W240DE relaying WKTA-1330. It is
however, only 80 watts, located 7 minutes, 1 second further north; 10
minutes, 29 seconds further west (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1590, Sept 18 at 0351 UT, as I just remonitored WCGO
from the NE, Spanish music upfades, romantic, then tropical. I get a
pretty sharp DF as due south/north, which per NRC AM Log points to
KDAE Sinton TX (Corpus Christi), Radio Aleluya, U4 1000/500 with
virtually no signal to the north. Other SS in TX is KMIC Houston, U2
5000/5000, Radio Libertad, at night Gulfward. Both listed as
Spanish/Religious. Of course, fade down if there were any ToH ID, then
back up while WCGO is in network news in English. One more
possibility, XEVOZ in CDMX, which is somewhat west of south, but 20/10
kW with POP E/S format per IRCA Mexican Log. The only Mexican left on
1590. Fred Cantú`s final 2015y roster still had four (Glenn Hauser,

From the Isle of Music, September 22-28:
This week we listen to a variety of new and recent releases.
The broadcasts take place:

** CANADA. 300 kHz, Sept 16 at 0622 UT, dash and YIV, 500 watt ND
beacon from Island Lake, Manitoba. Believe this be a new one for me.
Wikipedia: ``Island Lake is a small community in east central
Manitoba, Canada. The community is on several islands in Island Lake,
which is the 6th largest lake in the province. The community is
located 297 kilometers (185 mi) east from Thompson, Manitoba and 610
kilometers northeast of Winnipeg`` near the Ontario border. That makes
it 1965 km = 1221 miles from me. Bill Hepburn had reported that this
one was to be retained beyond 2026y rather than decommissioned.

218 kHz, Sept 16 at 0626 UT, dash and RL, 975 watt ND beacon from Red
Lake, Ontario.

332 kHz, Sept 16 at 0628 UT, dash and QT, 1000 watt ND beacon from
Thunder Bay, Ontario. Same time and frequency, IC, 400 watts from
Wichita, Kansas, but different pitches. Also two more from USA, q.v.

346 kHz, Sept 16 at 0630 UT, dash and YXL, 500 watt ND beacon from
Sioux Lookout, Ontario (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13557, 13629, 13770, 13841, trace 13912 approx., Sept 16 at
1358, FM spurblobs out of 13700-AM, RHC; but today these are rather
weak, with F# tone but very little or no program modulation; and the
one on 13629 produces more mod in AM than FM, as RHC fails again to
provide decent FM service; roughly 70-73 kHz intervals above and
below. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9630 & 9650, Sept 16 at 1410, buzzblobs equally on both sides
of 9640 RHC, which I conclude is producing them; matching and above
line- and other band noise levels. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 326 kHz, Sept 16 at 0620 UT, MA, 400 watt ND beacon from
Midland TX. I was tuned to 324.

347 kHz, Sept 16 at 0631 UT, AFK, 25 watt ND beacon from Nebraska
City, NE. Also logged four from CANADA, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1999 monitoring: confirmed
Sunday September 15 at 2130 on WRMI 7780, JBA vs HNL.

Also confirmed UT Monday Sept 16 at 0130 on WRMI 7780, poor, // much

** U S A. Larry Will explains further on the WOR iogroup Sept 16 about
the Jason we heard on WBCQ:

``Jason Hill runs WBCQ 94.7 "KIXX-FM" (country format) and WXME 780 //
W252DW 98.3. WXME has a talk format in the daytime and runs an album
rock format at night. Jason's been working with WBCQ for over 20
years. At one point he was a board operator and did a show called
"Squad 51" on WBCQ shortwave c. 2004 in the early days of the
5100/5105/5110/5130 service.

The Timtron show we ran on Saturday at 2300 on Area 51 was actually a
rebroadcast from 26 January 2013 which, non-coincidentally, was
Timtron at Monticello with Jason as a guest. Lw`` (Glenn Hauser, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1280, Sept 16 at 1645 UT, KSOK Arkansas City KS is still
weak, QRP with music; nearing midday, only one GW signal from its
direxion. Could be on night power of 100 watts, instead of 1000 day,
500 watts PSRA. It`s only 106 km = 66 statute miles city-to-city
(Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Glenn Hauser
 

** BONAIRE. 800, Sept 15 at 0144, without really trying in
tune-across, Spanish mention of rtm.org and Bible talk in strange
accent, i.e. PJB, TWR. Dominant on the E-W longwire, where`s KQCV OKC?
It still dominates on the DX-398 except when nulled (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 13640, Sept 14 at 2237, JBA talk of interest only because
hardly anything else is audible on band --- listed as CRI Japanese
bihour from Jinhua site, so probably aimed thisaway beyond (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. Re my CNR1 jammer log on unlisted 11170, Wolfgang Bueschel
reminds that he found Sound of Hope nearby during his exhaustive
survey: ``my trace action of 05 - 12 July, 73 wb: 11170.091 S=6 1414
UT 2150-1700 SOH Xi Wang Zhi Sheng Chi 1-7 0607 UT<<<<<<`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA [non]. 9580, Sept 15 at 0120, CRI English via CUBA is
splashing upon 9570, CRI English via ALBANIA, lessened by LSB tuning.
Commies vs Commies vs Commies! Maybe not such a good idea to run them
only 10 kHz apart, altho not synchronized with an extra satellite hop
to reach Cuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13557, 13627, 13767, 13848 approx. centers, Sept 15 at 1333,
barely detectable FM spurblobs with F# tone from RHC 13700-AM, as RHC
fails to provide a useful FM service today; something`s always wrong
at RHC. The one around 13627 is somewhat readable, and I notice that
the F# tone is also JB audible on 13700-AM, but not on 13740-AM, at
1336 as `En Contacto` is underway. Hey Arnie, this would be a great
topic for you to discuss/explain in English and/or Spanish, rather
than boring QSLs-on-the-air, etc., of possible interest to only one
listener. At 1426 recheck, traces of FM but no mod around 13771,
13629, as blobs shift. BTW, 13700 & FM constellation came on air late,
still unthere at first check 1306 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9420, Sept 15 at 0130, great Greek music from ERT,
S9+10/20. But it will be off 24 hours later on UT Mondays (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN. 11659.970, Sept 15 at 0124, VIRI IS, 0126 suptorted Spanish
during trihour starting at 2350 from Sirjan. If Iran can`t keep its SW
frequencies accurate, how can we expect them to enrich Uranium
properly? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 640, Sept 15 at 1308 UT and still 1315 UT, dead air from
KWPN Moore, but too much signal to let KFI thru this late; at least
Okies may still hear stupid sportstalk in English now on sibling 930
WKY (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1999 monitoring: confirmed Sat Sept
14 at 2100 on WRMI 9955, S8-S9 after 2059 IS/ID loop, upcut joining
WOR missing my first eight words, at ``1999---``.

Confirmed UT Sunday Sept 15 at 0328 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, about 15
minutes into so started circa 0313; VG S9+10 with some storm crashes
from Iowa.

Also confirmed by Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria: ``GERMANY, World of Radio

** U S A. Re our AAAWWW reports for Sept 14, John Carver explains:
``Glenn. Jason works for WBCQ. At present time he's working with the
FM station, I believe. He's been associated with the station for years
and pops up now and then on the SW. Tim usually refers to him as Jay
of Son. I have no idea what his last name is.`` And at 2306 UT Sat
Sept 14, John says ``TimTron is doing his Area 51 show live from the
station tonight and Jason is sitting in with him again. John`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sun Sept 15 at 0100, WTWW-2 with rock music, not
`Theatre Organ in the Ozarx` as claimed on far-outdated website; not
checked this week whether at 2330 Sat when it has also been missing
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1280, Sept 15 at 1317 UT, my semi-local KSOK Arkansas City
KS seems to be off; instead two weak signals: one from NE/SW with
gospel huxter, not its musical format; 1319 another fades up from
NW/SE with income-tax ad. 1329 first one into Lord`s Prayer and
benedixion, outro as a Lutheran program, 1330 KSOK ID! and into music.
So KSOK must be on power greatly reduced from 1 kW ND; axually I had
already noticed it weak yesterday.

As for the perpendicular signal, could be much-wanted KPRV Poteau OK,
or maybe WODT New Orleans, or KWHI Brenham TX. KBNO Denver might be
more likely except it`s listed Spanish.

1280 also has hiss from adjacent IBOC: I suspect de 1270, KRXO
Claremore OK, but NRC AM Log unshows it as I, rather KFLC 50 kW
Benbrook (Metroplex) TX, which is still in Spanish but can`t be from
defunct ESPN-D (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VIETNAM [non]. 7315, Sept 15 at 0117, VOV via WHRI in Vietnamese,
not English as had been, while Viet was registered at 0130 when
English has been running. Seems you can never depend on WHRI to play
which language in which segment of the bihour relay (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 3325, Sept 15 circa 1250, JBA carrier again, from
Bougainville or Indonesia? Ron Howard says he was not monitoring
yesterday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9200, Sept 15 at 0118, S9-S6 of open carrier, mystery
continues altho I have not bothered to rereport it for some weeks.
Possibly an RTTY station QRX for rare beepery? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 9215, Sept 14 at 1225, VP music and then Chinese // 11785,
9660 and best 9680, i.e. CNR1 jammers. Then I search out more WOOB:
10820, Sept 14 at 1230, JBA Chinese
10960, Sept 14 at 1231, JBA carrier
11170, Sept 14 at 1232, JBA Chinese
11440 & 11460 & 11540, Sept 14 at 1233, JBA carriers
13530, Sept 14 at 1237, JBA carrier with flutter; and no others in the
12s, 13s, 14s or higher.

All the WOOB ones correlate with SOH/CNR1 jamming in Aoki/NDXC and
EiBi, except unlisted 11170, new to both of them (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15140, Sept 13 at 2013, RHC in Portuguese; and 15370 in
French. Wires crossed? Supposed to be vice versa, per Aoki/NDXC and
EiBi. RHC`s own website is still displaying B-18 schedule!
http://www.radiohc.cu/fr/interesantes/frecuencias
which does not include either language on either or any frequency
during this semihour! Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, Sept 14 at 0525, RHC English is S9+20 of dead air; at
least it is usually strongest now, while 6000 is JBM and 6165 JBA
carrier. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 12000, Sept 14 at 1234, RHC fair here and better than //
fundamental 6000. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13700, Sept 14 at 1305, RHC fails to provide an F# FM service
today, just this and 13740 on AM. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** FRANCE [non]. 17660.018, Sept 14 at 1253, French S9+10 and somewhat
undermodulated, some deep fades to S6;; off-frequency makes me think
of Sa`udi like just-logged 15380.059 Qur`an, and SRI/SBA do have
French on 17660 --- but not until 1355.

At 1200-1300 it`s RFI via MADAGASCAR, which explains the good signal
being T-E rather than T-A. Fluent W&M conversation about African
affairs, chopped off abruptly at 1300*. Only a trace of Saudi on
17705, making RFI the SSOB and virtually the OSOB (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 790-, Sept 14 at 1215, low audible het looping SW about the
same as KFYO Lubbock ID, presumed XENT, La Paz BCS, as in MW Offsets:
790 789.9586 MEX XENT-AM Radio Fórmula (La Paz) 2018-11-01
790 789.9993 USA KFYO (Lubbock, TX) 2018-08-29
I.e. 40.7 Hz apart. No other station anywhere is listed that far below
790. Nominally 10000/750 watts but IRCA Mexican Log says ``night power
seems much higher than 750``, and is staying on AM.

I also had a definite ID of XENT on 790-, April 11, 2018, after the
frequency had been reported at 789.96 by John Wilkins, CO (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 870, Sept 14 at 1208, XETAR in sign-on routine, starting
late? Or just protracted in multilanguages, but several IDs heard (not
XERTA as I mistyped in previous report about KFJZ, USA). In Spanish,
mentions that they will be on air for 12 hours, ``iniciando doce horas
de transmisión``, i.e. still a daytimer which perhaps WWL/listeners
appreciate (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. Level 2 tropo blob over central to eastern OK, Sept 14 at
1408+ UT provides a bunch of Bad DTV signals on RF: 8, 10, 11, 12, 21,
22, 26, 30, 35, 36, mostly correlating with Tulsa market, and some
decodes:
20, KQCW-HD 19-1
28, Ion 44-1
31, OETA-DT 3-1 [seldom seen Eufaula KOET, with all 4 channels]
34, KMYT-TV 41-1
But none higher, not even 45, whence KOTV must have repacked by now.

Also, RF 16 KOCM-DT, Daystar Norman is Bad, failing to decode due to
DX QRM, which now must be KWHB Tulsa, 26 kW repacked from 47; altho
there are 7 other low-power Okies on 16 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

as scheduled at 06-09 & 12-13 per EiBi; more precisely as 0545-0857 &
1155-1357 per Aoki. One of few stations on band beyond Cuba, and much
better than 15450 Turkey English toward Europe & North America which
has been a total loss all summer (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

Alan Gale, England reports: ``Hi Glenn, Nothing at all heard here on
9485 today. The Romanian station was spanning the full 10 kHz from
9485 to 9495, but I could just about see a carrier on 9485. A search
of the usual webSDRs showed nothing but splatter, but this one in
Mala, Sweden did reveal you briefly at around 1455 UT, so at least I
can confirm that the broadcast was actually on there today:

Romania. Not heard on UTwente SDR.

Via OH5 I also check 7265 and 6190 in case HLR jumbled frequencies as

** U S A. (7490v), UT Sat Sept 14 from 0000, WBCQ webcast with WTO
opening of AAAWWW, but turns out to be TimTron subhosting, apparently
on short notice as AW & AW are away at her family`s gathering in
Ass-Houlton. Messes with cart machine trying to get it to eject or
insert. He thinx they are ``quadricasting`` on 5 frequencies, but
checking 6160v, finds it off the air; plays a tune while he goes out
to try to fix it. Later says it may need a new driver tube. Also says
9330 is on but ``piss-weak``. Punxuated by belches here and there.

By now some guy named Jason has joined him to co-host. Who`s he? Never
heard his last name. He is also live-streaming video of this via his
phone on FB, but never says where to find it! Tim wants to take phone
calls to the usual 207-538-9180, but finds out it won`t work since
that number is still set to forward to AW`s cellphone, and he doesn`t
know how to change that. So Jason prompts TT to recall his adventures
in radio in Maine, having known him for almost 20 years. Rest of show
is about the various stations Tim has built and/or worked for until
losing jobs. Jason sounds like a DJ, and they do talk about the
domestic side of WBCQ, WXME, ``all-rock, AOR``, so maybe he works at
that station.

Meanwhile by 0015 I have checked for the SW frequencies vs my hi local
line noise level: 9330v JBA carrier, 7490.2v best; 6160v JBA carrier;
5130.3v second best; and 3265- as usual inaudible.

Here`s John Carver`s version: ``Show starts on time this evening but
with TimTron as host. Says he was up there because of some problems
with the superstation but never gives any details. He also stated that
6160 was down till he had a chance to fix it. He moved off mic and
worked on a cart machine for a few minutes and then played some music.
While the music was playing he ran out and restarted 6160. After the
music finished Jason wandered into the studio and was co-host to Tim.
Allan and Angela are off visiting with Angela's parents. No phone
calls this evening as Tim can't remember the control codes to stop the
phone from forwarding all calls to Allan's phone. Long talk between
the two of them about how Tim got started working for radio stations
in Maine before WBCQ existed. 6160 did not make it through the hour
and was down again. Program was off the air at 0102. John, Mid-North
Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 870, Sept 14 at 1158 UT, must be KFJZ Fort Worth again,
gospel huxter in Spanish from the south giving phone 214-723-4520,
i.e. Dallas area code. Then a song/hymn with a tropical beat
frequently reuttering ``victoria`` and ``gloria``. By 1208, XETAR is
on and in again from the SW, separable as KFJZ is fading (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 880, Sept 14 at 1203 UT, strong music east/west vs ~6 Hz SAH
with KRVN from the north, not Arkansas, but soon ID in English as
``KHAC Tse Bonito``, and KWIM, and KTBA, ``exalting the name of Jesus
across the nations``, i.e. AZ/NM reses. KHAC had been notable for
suppressed LSB, carrier plus USB only, so I recheck it both on the
DX-398 and R-75, finding that now it is DSB like almost all other
``AM`` stations, equally modulating on both sidebands!

Now I am wondering why I am not simulhearing as good or better signal
from 50/50 kW neighbor 660 KTNN? Because KHAC is obviously on 10 kW ND
day power instead of 430 watts night, both non-direxional; despite
official FCC Sept sunrise not until 1300 UT! (Oct: 1315 UT); while
KTNN would still be direxional away from us (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** VIETNAM. 12020.0, Sept 14 at 1235, carrier here, not 12019 --- can
VOV finally have fixed this long-standing off-frequency? EiBi still
shows 12019 including English at 1230, but no trace of a signal there,
nor is anything else scheduled on 12019 or 12020. Aoki/NDXC already
shows 12020, but has never been attentive to variants: almost
everylisting ends in -0 or -5 whether true or not, except V of Tibet`s
constantly changing 1-kHz steps around via Tajikistan (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 3325, Sept 14 at 1222, JBA carrier detectable, despite
my high local line noise level registering S9+20 on this band, so must
be good propagation. Ron Howard has been reporting NBC Bougainville,
pre-independence referendum, on an extended schedule way past 1200*;
but it could also be VOI via RRI Palangkaraya. Perhaps he will have
noted which or both were on today. Also have a JBA carrier on 2850, no
doubt the only 105-m band station, KCBS Korea North (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 14325-USB, Sept 14 at 1241, checking Hurricane Watch Net
for more to come; at first nothing, then a very weak K2? contacting an
ON4 Belgium and DJ4CH in Germany; closest to weather discussion was
remark that ``iron ore in the ground around here draws lightning``.
Seems plausible, but true? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15253.50-USB, Sept 13 at 2012, S4, 2-way in Spanish,
with crackle. Why am I the only one ever reporting such INTRUDERS into
our SWBC bands? Does no one else care? Of course, as more and more
broadcasters evacuate, such bands are more and more tempting to invade

** ASCENSION. 17800, Sept 13 at 1358, JBA signal where I seldom hear
anything on morning bandscans. Listed as DW in Hausa daily at
1300-1357; indeed off at 1424 recheck (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11860.4, Sept 13 at 1323, lite Cuban noise jamming overlaid
several times a minute by a very rapid series of beeps, all same
pitch, too fast and too many to count, as heard tuned to 11860.0-USB,
and then located frequency of beeper which is inaudible in AM mode,
i.e. not modulated but just CW-like.

Also at 1325 I hear exactly the same thing happening on 11930.4. Radio
Martí does not start either frequency until 1400. Occasional beepery
of different spans, combinations and speeds, has been heard previously
out of Cuban jammers, intriguing; could Arnie explain? Ha. And is this
something ``wrong`` or not? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13554, 13485, 13630, 13775, 13840 approx., Sept 13 at 1327,
strong FM spurblobs out of RHC 13700-AM transmitter, each about 10 kHz
wide, at intervals of approx. 70-75 kHz which may vary slightly over
time. AND yes, all with F# above middle C constant tone, just like
original outbreak years ago, but tuned in FM mode, modulation is quite
readable, while 13700 source sounds fine in AM.

By 1348 I search for further outliers and detect at least the F# tone
circa: 13990, 14060, 13844, 13410 - which was a trace around 13415
earlier. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** MEXICO. 540, Sept 13 at 1147, ``La Ranchera de Paquimé, 540 AM``

Nuevo Casas Grandes, Chihuahua, near the frontera, and heard
immediately upon tune-in, WSW separable from earlier southerly Spanish

** MEXICO. 580, Sept 13 at 1149, romantic song in Spanish from SSW,
and no WIBW unless that`s causing a SAH. 1200 ID as ``La Rancherita
del Aire``, which is Piedras Negras, Coahuila, with new official calls
XELRDA to match its slogan, altho it`s really rebranded XEMU which
lost the frequency and then bought it back, still llamando itself

** U S A. 840, Sept 13 at 1204 UT, Spanish from N/S, ID in passing as
``Radio Aleluia``, fade by 1206. That`s KVJY Pharr TX in the RGV as
now listed in the NRC AM Log, religious format. --- I thought this was
the unlikely station being relayed by XEPRS 1090 BCN, but it wasn`t
religious. What is the status of that deal?

IRCA Mexican Log as of Sept 1 explains under 1090 XEPRS: ``// KPAV
[sic, typo?] 104.9 FM Alamo TX. No longer // XEPE 1700 AM. Ads and
announcers in English and Spanish. With no lessee, owner is relaying a
relative`s FM station. Mentions 840 AM on air (and on `About` page of
FB), but KJAV-FM is reportedly no longer // KVJY 840 AM`` (Glenn

** U S A [and non]. 870, Sept 13 at 1155 UT, screaming gospel huxter,
a mental case, in Spanish, --- ``¡¡¡Cristo viene!!!`` from N/S,
presumed KFJZ Fort Worth TX, but I would like to get an ID. Last time
he finished before 1200 but there was no legal ID before going right
into next infomercial. Today I clench my teeth (and eardrums?), and
keep listening. Keeps on right across ToH; at 1203 says he`s going to
terminate in 5 minutes --- but still going at 1208 when XERTA finally
gets started with XE NA from Chihuahua, barely audible from SW. And
*still* predicating by fade-out 1215, never hearing any local
references or contact info, but it was a sermon recorded in a
``noche``. All along there has been a medium SAH with WWL, which
despite easterliness, outlasts KFJZ. Could someone in The Metroplex
confirm whether KFJZ now be 100% Spanish, brokered miscellany? And
what slogan do they ever ID? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 88.1, Sept 13 at 1342 UT, KWOU Woodward is inbooming for
StarDate, so tropo is up; after breakfast to DTV bandscan; some Bad
signals on the few open UHF channels, but I always check down to VHF
6, knowing that 5-4-3-2 would be pointless for DTV tropo around
here.

And indeed at 1440 UT I *do* finally have a Bad signal on 6! This has
to be KBSD Ensign KS = Dodge City, which managed to keep its old NTSC
channel -- and there are *no* other RF6 stations in Kansas, Oklahoma,
Missouri or Arkansas (but 17 across TX, LD or LP including
Franken-FMs, no full powers).

Bill Hepburn`s tropo map predicted for 15 UT shows Level 5 Good
enhancement from Woodward thru here up into central Missouri, but
Dodge City is outside any of that.

RF 13, KETA OKC is also Bad, not decoding, blocked by some other DX,
despite antennas aimed toward it. That could also be caused by Garden
City, KUPK, but there are other 13 full-powers in Pittsburg & Topeka
KS. A glimpse of the CCI shows a Home Depot ad circa 1438 (Glenn

very strong dead air prior to China Plus relay, which continues until

** MEXICO. 1050, Sept 12 at 0602, XEG Monterrey with super-hype voice
actor full Spanish ID claiming 100,000 watts ``en efectivo``, the
strongest station in Mexico or the US. Effective? meaning in a certain
direxion, but less transmitter power? That term is usually applied to
FM where ERP is almost always much greater than transmitter power,
taking into account antenna gain. Still plenty of QRM, and XEG has not
been the dominant 1050 signal at night for a long time, so I question
their claim. And it`s supposedly ND day and night. IRCA Mexican Log
shows nothing but 100/100 kW and it`s also $tereo with no FM (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SRI LANKA. 15430, Sept 12 at 1328, bit of S Asian song, dead air,
1330 resumes YL announcement and hymn. Aoki shows AWR via Trincomalee
in Bengali until 1330, nothing afterwards. But EiBi has it: 1330-1400
daily in KHS language, i.e. ``Khasi / Kahasi: India-Meghalaya, Assam
(0.8m) [kha]`` --- so how many of the 800K speakers are really
listening to this, and of them, how many are converting to 7D
Adventism?? Believe it or not, this transpolar is the strongest signal
on band, S4-S7, much more than US or Cuban signals on 15825, 15230,
15140, 15115 DRM (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Re the three 1540s in Texas, after my report of KGBC
Galveston off-frequency-minus, Stephen Luce, Houston replies:

``Glenn, KGBC is no longer running the Tejano format, having switched
to Spanish language religion a few months ago. During critical hours I
have heard KEDA underneath KGBC, so it might be them.

"Tejano" refers to Texas Hispanics (particularly south Texas) whose
families have lived in the state for many generations. The Tejano
music style enjoyed its peak popularity in the 1990's, but has fizzled
since then, with little new product being released. There have been
attempts to revive it on radio, but the listener demographics skew too
old, which is why the format failed on KGBC (not to mention the poor
1540 AM signal in the broader Houston market.)

Also, has anyone confirmed what co-channel KZMP in Dallas-Fort Worth
is now running following the demise of ESPN Deportes Radio?``

To which Mauno Ritola, Finland, replies: ``Stephen, they have been
heard relaying KXYZ 1320, but apparently not all the time? Seems to
carry ranchera, just checked, attached. KZMP 1540.mp3``

ID on that is ``La Ranchera 103.7`` --- but in the WTFDA FM DB, not a
single Texan of the dozen on 103.7 is Spanish, let alone ranchera, and
the local one for The Metroplex would surely be KVIL, still shown as
alternative rock. Or were they saying 106.7?? Hard to distinguish in

** NIGERIA. 11769.903, Sept 9 at 2033, VON one of better 25mb signals
at this time, S9-S7 but very undermodulated, can`t tell the language
but presumably not English. Must also check here when 7254.9 be
missing for the 0600 broadcast, as Ivo Ivanov found it on instead,
``Voice of Nigeria on wrong 11770v, instead of 7255v kHz, September 10
from 0600 Hausa, from 0700 Fulfulde and upcoming from 0800 English``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 930, Sept 10 at 0028 UT, WKY OKC in English! With the
demise of ESPN-D[eportes], what to do with this legacy station? Sports
talk in English! In fact, at 0047 plugs sibling station WWLS The
Sports Animal (98.1) which is also on KWPN 640 Moore, but not // at
the moment. At 0201 UT I find that 930 is // 640 but running 7 seconds
behind it. And again at 0620 UT when both are on ESPN Radio (in
English).

What a great variety Radio License Holding CBC, LLC are providing!
BTW, these two stations are not part of any other AM cluster in OKC.
according to FCC Licensee info. Oh, yeah?

At 1459 UT Sept 10, I monitor the ToH breaks on all three stations.
640 and 930 are not // but 930 is // 98.1, if not synched. At 1502
legal ID on 98.1 starts with WWLS, then a bunch of mostly AM
affiliates all over OK, to which WKY has been added at the end; as
part of Cumulus. And the same multi-station ID comes around 27 seconds
later on 930. But FCC AM Query shows Cumulus is *not* the licensee of
any AM station in OK. How about FM? Allegedly, ONLY ONE: 107.3 KOMS
Poteau! What is going on here? Well, RLH CBC LLC must be a subsidiary
of Cumulus, but why? Try to reach the former on Wikipedia and you are
redirected to Cumulus without explanation. Could CBC stand for the
obvious?

On FM, the following in OK are licensed to Radio License Holding CBC
LLC, per FCC FM Query: WWLS-FM 98.1 The Village [NW OKC suburb where I
used to live], KYIS 98.9 OKC, KATT 100.5 OKC, KKWD 104.9 Bethany.
Except for 104.9 which I could not hear anyway, the other three FM
would get knocked off the air simultaneously via storms.

WKY used to run some commercials and PubAffs shows in English; so now
will they insert anything in Spanish? When ESPN-D appeared, WKY
dismissed their ``La Indomable`` Spanish DJ staff. From Nov. 2014:
http://www.w4uvh.net/WKY930AM-ad.jpg

Former ESPN-D affiliates everywhere must be trying to find something
to replace it; will English or Spanish prevail? See my recent report
of 1650 KSVE El Paso TX (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1580, Sept 9 at 1757 UT, I notice that KOKB Blackwell is
back on the air; might have resumed Sept 8 before I noticed. Had been
off since at least Sept 3 (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 88.3, as of Sept 10, I have been meaning to note that the
Family Radio satellator in Enid, K202BY, has been totally off the air
again for about a week. Not just dead air! A little less QRM for my SW
caradio feeder set on 88.3; and with it off, 88.3 open again for KOSR
Stillwater, if not DX (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

the time rather than on with SFAW PPPP (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 1490, Sept 10 at 0625 UT, ``The Entertainer`` by Joplin on
piano is just ending as some signal is briefly atop the graveyard
jungle/jumble, then ``The Fabulous 1490, KDMO`` YL ID, seems to loop
NE/SW before fade. That`s Carthage MO, near Joplin, ENE. Could Scott`s
tunes be thematic for Joplinites? Still NOStalgia format. Previously
logged here Sept 7, 2017 at 1240 UT.

BTW, not to be confused with KDMO, the airport ID in Sedalia MO
beyond, which runs beacon DMO on 281 kHz as reported by Harold Frodge,

I agree with his recommendations and have forwarded them to HLR.

** U S A. 15825 & 13845, Sept 9 at 1451, WWCRs hitting S9+30 rather
than JBA carriers, demonstrating that HF sporadic E is still in play;
ham Es map at 1526 shows only one Es spot over Georgia with 82 MHz
MUF; and no contacts on 28 MHz. But at 1625 there is a 32 MHz MUF
about halfway between Nashville and here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1539.95 approx., Sept 8 at 0602 UT, LAH against 1540.0
stations such as KXEL. I`ve been noticing this for some time. On MW
with all the QRM, it`s harder to measure to three decimal places. In
the past this has been KGBC Galveston TX. DF seems to fit, and
apparently it is off-minus still or again, as Terry Krueger, now moved
to Niceville FL in the Panhandle, has just reported to DXLD:

``1539.903, TEXAS, KGBC, 0918 August 28, 2019. Very poor, with
Mexi-tunes on peaks, and confirmed it's KGBC per D. Crawford who had
it a few days earlier and since on 1539.903. And not to be confused
with the still off-channel and variable KBOA Kennett MO on
1539.996-1540.005, this check on the low side with "Too Much, Too
Little, Too Late" by Denice Williams & Johnny Mathis.``

Per 2019/2020 NRC AM Log, which does not deal with offfrequenciness,
latest KGBC format is Tejano, U4 2500/250 watts. Beware, so is KEDA
San Antonio, Tejano, which I guess refer only to music style. However,
música is feminine, so why isn`t it called ``tejana``; machismo [where
the ch is not pronounced k!]? Also, is it possible for a station
outside Texas to be Tejano? Or e.g. if it play the same style of music
from OK, would it be ``Oclajomano``? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

UNIDENTIFIED. 12125-USB, 13519-USB, 13788-USB, Sept 8 at 1315 within a

** ALBANIA. 13665, Sept 7 at 1229, discussion in English, soon mixed

CRI as scheduled 1100-1300 in English via Cërrik. Not much else on
band except Cuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 341 kHz, Sept 7 at 0603 UT, dash and YYU, 500 watts from
Kapuskasing, Ontario, no trouble overriding my local on 341, EI. Per
http://www.dxinfocentre.com/ndb.htm
this is ``TO BE DECOMMISSIONED 2019-10-10``
The same red warning is appended to several others I have extracted:

These are the only ones indicated with a specific date. A number of

Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDIA. See OMAN [non]

** MEXICO. 800, Sept 7 at 1210, Spanish virtually zero-beat with KQCV
OKC, which I null as much as possible; discussing border issues at
Juárez; 1211 mentions ``Calibre``, keyword for XEROK, contraxion for
``Canal Libre``, as if it were still a ``clear channel``; 1211 rooster
crows (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 870, Sept 7 as I try to ID the SS from the South as KFJZ
Fort Worth [see U S A], by 1202 I am also hearing the choral Mexican
NA from the SW, which has to be XETAR; 1204, multilingual XETAR IDs;
1208 fades up ``XETAR, Su voz en la Sierra Tarahumara``, but I`ve
heard it much better before at SRS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 7 DTV, Sept 7 around 0415-0440 UT, KOCO ``5`` is on
the verge, continually breaking up during the Jimmy Kimmel show and a
bit of Nightline. One of my TV antennas has trouble getting a
sufficient signal from our `local` ABC affiliate. So I have a fest
snapping still after still of pixillated DTV breakup art, 67 of them;
to be winnowed down to the best of the best with the most variety for
my gallery. QRX (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 36 DTV, Sept 7 at 1352 UT, some tropo from Tulsa area
judging from maps and Bad signals, but this one decodes as: DTV 17-1
TBN HD. That is not helpful, but as W9WI.com confirms, this is the new
repacked channel for 1000 kW, KDOR-TV in Bartlesville, ex-17; so it
will not interfere any more with Enid`s K17JN-D, whatever its
masquerade. PSIP lineup:
17-1, TBN HD
17-2, Hilsong [sic, gotta delete a letter to get it down to 7]
17-3, COMBO
17-4, Enlace
17-5, TBN SD
W9WI.com disagrees on a couple: 17-3 JUCE; 17-5 Salsa. As with some
multi-casters, it could be certain subchannels are timeshared, so the
other names might apply elsewhen? It still seems strange that 36 will
soon be the top of the UHF TV band. Bring back 83! (Glenn Hauser,
Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OMAN [non]. 9620, Sept 7 at 1443, since I have the OH5AE SDR in
Finland up to check WOR, also try for RSO English hour as reported
recently reactivated. Instead, S Asian talk with some hum, squeal and
distortion, and no trace of Oman. 1445 ID in passing as All India
Radio, as scheduled 250 kW from Aligarh in Sindhi at 1230-1500, among
other transmissions on 9620 --- not a good spot for RSO anyway (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9830, Sept 7 at 2222, VOT on today unlike yesterday, but VP
with flutter, music (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 293 kHz, Sept 7 at 0601 UT, ND beacon FBY, which is 25 watts
from Fairbury, Nebraska, logged a few times before. ATM I notice that
my line noise level abates below 300 kHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1998 monitoring: Ivo Ivanov reports
from Bulgaria: ``GERMANY, World of Radio#1998 via Hamburger
Lokalradio, September 7:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gV7g9ByRgS4&feature=youtu.be
https://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.com/2019/09/world-of-radio1998-via-hamburger.html
0630-0700 6190 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg CeEu English Sat, fair to good``

Barely confirmed audible on 9485-CUSB Hamburger Lokalradio, via OH5AE
SDR, Sat Sept 7 at 1445, vs heavy splash from 9490 Romania. Before
that undetectable on UTwente SDR.

Alan Gale reports: ``Hi Glenn, I'm hearing World of Radio here in
north west England again today, not very strong but it's definitely
there on 9485 kHz and even came up a bit towards the middle part but
then faded out completely after around 1450 UT.

I tried it on my SDRplay today and found that a USB bandwidth of
around 1.5 kHz worked best, but with the splatter it wasn't easy to
understand too much of what was being said, especially with some
fading on the signal as well. As you can see from the waterfall
display, a LSB signal would have no trouble at all, it's just the
upper sideband that is suffering, and even a double sideband AM signal
would probably fare better as you could at least tune lower or use
your IF shift to remove some of the splatter. Alan.``

Also confirmed, Sat Sept 7 at 2100 on WRMI 9955 after IS & ID loop,
S9-S7 and fluttery, upcut at ``---with World of Radio 1998``.

NOT confirmed UT Sunday Sept 8 at 0130 on WRMI 5850, which had been
our only WRMI frequency across North America; instead music, and soon
VORW mailbag. WRMI sked has been revised to show 5850 // 5010 during
this hour but still claims WOR on both now; while VORW was already
scheduled this hour on UT Fridays; a mistake, John, or a change? I do
confirm that much weaker 5010 is now // 5850. And not // to any of the
others WRMIs.

Confirmed UT Sunday Sept 8 at 0347 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO,
about 12 minutes into so started late around 0335; good S9+20 but
considerable storm crashes, from eastern NM into the OK panhandle.

** U S A. 5085, Sat Sept 7 at 2330 and later, WTWW-2 sig is not very
big, but as also on L&C webcast, just hamstuff, no Theatre Organ in
the Ozarx. Now the website says: ``Listen to Bob Heil's Organ Music
On WTWW Airs Saturdays 8 pm on 5085!`` But is that very old or very
new info? If CDT that would be 0100 UT Sunday (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** U S A. 870, Sept 7 at 1151 UT I`m up again hoping to ID the Spanish
gospel huxtering from the south which seems like it has to be KFJZ
Fort Worth, contrary to format listings. There he is; but at 1157, a
bit of hymn, no ID and sudden switch to another program, ``Renuevas
---`` algo, with a YL pushing something for $29 which seems to be
secular. Phone number frequently edited in with another OM voice,
1-888-366-2340. Reverse phone number uplooking is no fun unless you
are prepared to pay unknown websites. Fading down some, meanwhile
mostly separable XETAR fading up from 1202 past 1205; see MEXICO
