** CUBA. 5040, July 1 at 0525, RHC English during mailbag is JBM and

suptorted rather than often the best modulated outlet; 6100 is loudest

S9+40 and slightly distorted; 6165 is S9+20/30 but sounds much weaker

due to undermodulation; 6000 is S9+20/30 too by very suptorted. Wiggle

those patchcords! At least all four frequencies are on; as the Cuban

Fifth, 6060, seems gone for good. Something`s always wrong at RHC

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

 

** NIGERIA. 11769.9, July 2 at 0608, VON S6-S9 in presumed Hausa, ex

7254.9 and sometimes 9689.9. Is anyone ever hearing them on those

frequencies now? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

[still no reports from him or anyone about HLR Sat 1430 on 9485, or

Sun 1030 on 7265]

 

Confirmed Sunday June 30 at 2146 the 2130 on WRMI 7780, VP.

 

Also confirmed UT Monday July 1 at 0130 still on WRMI 9395, S9+10,

altho this airing had been erased from websked; and now also on 7780

as a separate playout a couple seconds behind, very poor in noise. The

9395 airing continues to be preceded by a strange ``Son-Power Radio on

5850, 7455 and 9395`` ID, which followed a rendition of the song

``Those Were the Days``.

 

Also confirmed UT Monday July 1 one hour later at 0230 on WRMI 7780,

poor vs noise level.

 

Also confirmed UT Monday July 1 at 0301 on Area 51 webcast; and WBCQ

5130.37v which checked a bit earlier during JL was S9+10 including

noise level. This week, superpower 9330 is taking the night off.

 

Also confirmed UT Monday July 1 at 0330 on WRMI 9955, fair-good.

** U S A. 9330.00, late UT June 30, no sign of 500 kW WBCQ-6 this

Sunday evening, but by 0030 UT Monday July 1, the other WBCQ is fading

up a bit with Brother Scare on 9330.139V.

 

9330.00 is back by 0005 check July 2, usual bigsig, Allan Wiener on

the phone from that hamfest in New Hampshire he always goes to,

** CUBA. 12200, June 30 at 0535, RHC `Music with a Message`, somewhat
distorted at S6-S7, second harmonic of 6100, which is S9+30 with the
same overmodulation distortion. While // 6165 is S9+10/20 and
undermodulated but not distorted; // 6000 same S9+10/20 suppressed
modulation yet is distorted (i.e. suptorted). // 5040 is S9+10/20 with
less distortion. Show features old American protest songs, just
another attempt to further its anti-American mantra. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11880, June 30 at 1344, CRI relay transmitter is already on
with S9+20 of open carrier prior to 1400 broadcast in English. Think
how many nutritious meals undernourished Cubans could be fed for the
expense of broadcasting 250 kW of nothing for a quarter-hour. Not to
mention all the dead air from spy numbers frequencies. Something`s
always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 6185, June 30 at 0327, NO signal from XEPPM, as Manuel
Méndez, Spain has also been noting for a few nights. Let`s hope
Mexico`s last SWBC station is not gone forever too (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 11769.9, June 30 at 0602, talk presumed Hausa from Voice
of Nigeria, S9/S9+10 and somewhat undermodulated. Nothing to be heard
on 7254.9 or 9689.9. It seems that VON has replaced all its previous
frequencies with this one; why? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 9545, June 30 at 0455, JBA signal, S3-S4 with
traces of modulation, presumed SIBC as Ron Howard has reported
reactivated on its daytime frequency scheduled until 0500* switch to
5020 (and which carrier becomes audible by 0600 as I have noted). So I
listen carefully whether this 9545 will turn off – yes! Cut at
0459:23*. 24 hours earlier, Wolfgang Bueschel measured it on the
Brisbane remote: ``9544.998 1/2 kHz at 0453 UT on June 29``.
(Meanwhile the only other Pacific signal, NZ on 9700, has just come on
at S9+10 for one hour.) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1988 monitoring: confirmed UT
Sunday June 30 at 0130 on WRMI 5850, VG S9+20/30.

Also confirmed UT Sun June 30 at 0328 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, only 2
minutes into, so started circa 0326. S9+20/30 but that includes
considerable summer storm noise level, none nearby.

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490+, June 30 at 0147 just as I tune in, this WBCQ cuts off
the air amid some program, presumably `SW Saturday Night`. Maybe there
was an overall power failure or storm, as this correlates with Richard
Langley, NB at 0201:

``9330 kHz putting in a fairly good signal into NB just 100 km from
the station with the Lumpy Gravy Radio Show (not live -- from a
Thanksgiving) at 0145 UT this evening (30 June UT). At the time, 5130
kHz was airing the same program but offset a second or two. 5130 was
not heard when rechecked at 0150. 3265 kHz was also on earlier with a
different program but gone by 0150 UT, too.``

I don`t check again until 0329 when 9330.00 is on with `SW Saturday
Night` as J.P. Is starting his ``train set``; nothing at all audible
now on 7490+ or 5130+. I think there was another old AWWW playback
after 0400.

9330+, by 0534 June 30, WBCQ-6 is off and low-power Brother Scare is
resumed (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5050, UT Sun June 30 at 0327, WWRB is still on with gospel

but not logged. Who knows what the real schedule is? Website

** CUBA. 5990, June 29 at 2316, CRI English relay is S7-S9 but JBM; if
// 15120, no signal there. Definitely off is 6000 RHC since this is
Saturday, so no leapfrog on 6010 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENIG
DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 11769.901, June 29 at 1734, JBA carrier, presumably Voice
of Nigeria, as others have been reporting it on this `new` frequency
``11770`` both morning and evening. Axually 11770 is a very old
frequency of theirs which had been disused for many years. The offset
is in keeping with all its other frequencies shifted circa 0.1 kHz to
the low side. Wolfgang Bueschel measured it June 28 on 11769.903 ---
close enough. (I also have another stronger carrier about 11770.9,
probably from a local device.) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 9760, June 29 at 2321, song at S3-S6, presumed RRI; yes,
// 11800 & 11900 when a Spanish announcement soon follows. Can`t hear
any of that underneath 11700 RHC, so RRI may have wisely vacated that
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9830, June 29 at 2306, Türkisch musik, as once again the
sloppyrators at Emiler have dozed? failing to turn 9830 off before
2300 when Englisch is finisched. A repeat of the German hour always
follows on the program feed; I recheck just in time at 2319 to hear a
few words of German before it is chopped off the air at 2319:45*
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1988 monitoring: confirmed first
NAm SWBC, Friday June 28 at 2200 on WRMI 9955, fair, no upcut but
joined at start about 2159:50 after ID which also ran a bit early.

Also confirmed UT Saturday June 29 at 0130 on WRMI 7780, poor-fair.

No reports yet from anyone about HLR 6190 Sat June 29 at 0630v; or
9485 Sat June 29 at 1430. For the latter, no trace of a signal heard
by UTwente SDR, just huge splash from 9490 Romania.

Not confirmed Sat June 29 at 2030 on WRMI 15770 --- instead, Wavescan
as now shown on skedgrid; so that did not last long, WOR only for the
past two weeks. I go on to search the WRMI sked and find more
changes:

UT Monday at 0130 now a blank space on 9395; but WOR added on 7780,
while remaining on 7780 an hour later at 0230. To be confirmed.

Confirmed Sat June 29 at 2100 on WRMI 9955, again upcut during theme
after my first utterance, poor S7-S9 vs summer noise level.

Not confirmed Sat June 29 at 2130 on WBCQ 9330 when an ad-hoc airing
occurred last week while testing; not on the air this early. Next:

** U S A. 9330.00, Fri June 28 at 2200, WBCQ-6 after a rockhour,
another old `AWWW` playback starts with WTO. Reckeck UT Sat June 29 at
0000 for a new `Allan Weiner Worldwide`, yes, except it`s hosted by
TimTron, from his own studio in Skowhegan.

Whenever he or Larry Will guests, it`s an entirely different show
hardly worthy of the AWWW title. TimTron muses and plays a lot of
music, does not take calls, rather like his own show. I think I heard
only one belch. His booming voice goes nicely with the booming signal,
but never distorted. There does seem to be a background noise vox
effect buildup during brief pauses, AVC?

Says it might be his first and last time on the 500 kW. I`ll bet he`d
love to hook his ham rig up to the Ampegon antenna. As I understand
it, while ham transmitter power is strictly limited, antenna gain is
not. I`ve previously heard WA1HLR on 80 meters with a
broadcast-strength AM signal and wondered if that was really WBCQ
equipment.

Here is John Carver`s report about that hour:

Tonight's show started on time on 7490 but it's TimTron hosting
instead of Allan. Theme song plays at 0002. He marvels at the
superstation and says he never ever thought about such a thing. He
managed an analogy between the superstation and golf. Said a golfer
will study the lay of the land and chose the best club to get the ball
to the hole. Sometimes it's a ten kW club and they hope the ball makes
it there. With the superstation they're using a 500 kW club and hit
more than one hole at the same time.

He says there will be no email this evening as he's afraid that his
computer is dying and he's had enough problems with the internet relay
there that he's afraid that if he fires up another computer for email
it might blow the internet connection. No phone calls as he doesn't
want to give out his phone number. Then some music and back to talk.

Some anti-Trump talk and then waxes philosophic in an attempt to
explain how Trump got elected in the first place. He jumps back to the
Vietnam war and then jumps back and forth to explain what happened to
the people in this country and how they do or don't react to things.
Music and back to talk.

He blames part of the problem on the demise of broadcasting in this
country along with the fairness doctrine which allowed such things as
the FOX network and Rush Limbaugh. Said that with the dying out of AM
and FM stations and the cloning of stations so they all were alike
coast to coast we were in big trouble and should the internet go down
because of global conflict along with the demise of shortwave
broadcasters we'd really be in big trouble and wouldn't have the
information to make an informed choice.

Some more music, talk, music, talk with a closing jab at Trump over
immigration policies and then closed with more music. Both the program
and 7490 were off at 0100. John, Mid-North Indiana``

I am rechecking 9330 after 0600 June 29 when another `AWWW` playback
is running, AW along with Tom Barna in studio. At 0620 AW recommends
reading something in RCA Broadcast News, May 1934, available at
amemricanradiohistoroy.com about what? Maybe early high-power AM
broadcasting.

9330.00 is not on by 2100 this Saturday June 29, or 2200? Retune at
2259, now on with open carrier, music and ID loop hitting S9+35-40-45;
2301, 500,000 watts ID and sirens, TimTron opening his new live June
29 show which he says is trimulcasting also on 5130+ (JBA carrier
here) and ``propagation test frequency 3265`` (zero here; and 7490
remains off). Until 2323 he`s mostly playing music, then another
500,000 watts ID.

People getting used to such super-entertainment are going to be very
disappointed when, July 8, the flat-earth World`s Last Chance ministry
takes over 9330 --- we can only hope that a bit of time can be carved
out/retained for some of WBCQ`s own programs (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** U S A. 5085, Sat June 29 at 2343, WTWW-2 starts `Theatre Organ in
the Ozarx` late again after some hamshow runover, so I switch to
stereo webcast which lasts until 2417, never just 30 minutes or 29.
This time I hear Bob Heil intro giving his location in the Ozarx as
Pleasant Hope --- not Pleasant Hill. I`m surprised no one ever
corrected me about that, as I contradicted him more than once pointing
out that Pleasant Hill, which is what I thought he was saying, is near
Kansas City, beyond the Ozarx. Pleasant Hope really is in the Ozarx a
few miles north of Springfield, and ARRL/FCC lookup confirms that is
where K9EID is to be found. If I make a mistake I want it corrected
sooner or later, even if I have to do it myself (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1210, UT Sat June 29 at 0606 UT, scary theme music
recognized of `Beyond Reality Radio`, which means for the sixth night,
daytimer WJNL Kingsley MI is again operating; with ~3 Hz SAH from
KGYN, which this time even when nulled is too strong to allow much
signal from WJNL. Has anyone else logged WJNL cheating by now?? NTMK

** CHINA. 11440, June 28 at 1222, CNR1 jammer, as I start today`s
hunt, ignoring the ``in-band`` ones above 11500, except to note they
match 11785 and 11825.

11460, June 28 at 1222, much weaker carrier than 11440 CNR1 jammer.

11150, June 28 at 1223, CNR1 jammer. In EiBi, not Aoki.

11100, June 28 at 1227, CNR1 jammer. Unlike all the others, this one
has a LAH = low audible heterodyne varying slightly on hi side, maybe
Sound of Hope target itself. EiBi in fact shows SOH on 11100.1

12190, June 28 at 1229, CNR1 jammer.

13160, June 28 at 1231, CNR1 jammer strongest, S7-S9

13550, June 28 at 1231, JBA carrier, CNR1 jammer? Not in EiBi or Aoki

13870, June 28 at 1232, CNR1 jammer.

14700, June 28 at 1233, JBA carrier, unlisted CNR1 jammer?

14850, June 28 at 1234, Chinese, CNR1 jammer

14980, June 28 at 1235, CNR1 jammer, second strongest WOOB, S6-S8.

15920, June 28 at 1235, Chinese, CNR1 jammer.

No other way-out-of-band ones found in the 10-16 MHz range. U.o.s.,
all listed as CNR1 jammer/SOH frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** CUBA. 12000, June 28 at 1218, RHC is S7-S8 here, bonus harmonic of

not also KCBS Pyongyang; 6100 has no bonus harmonic to be heard on

1390 KCRC = 12350; and which goes away with preamps off (Glenn Hauser,

** U S A. 7505, June 28 at 0602, WRNO is gone again, after having been

UNIDENTIFIED. 11111.1-USB, June 28 at 1227 during CNR1 jammer

relying on how normal the voices sound (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

UNIDENTIFIED. 13728-USB, June 28 at 1409, S8, 2-way in colloquial

UKRAINE via WRMI, #1 transmitter back on tonight after missing last
night during World of Radio (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9265V, UT Friday June 28 at 0232, Ray Robinson talking about
David Sarnoff, so this must be `AWR Wavescan` as now scheduled on
WINB; also Mondays at 2100 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505.007, June 28 at 0236, WRNO is back! With hymn in
English, S9+10. Had been missing for a few weeks whenever checked in
01-13 UT span (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1210, June 27 at 0600 UT newscast under sportstalk, 0603
also a song QRM; 0604 mention Westwood I; 0605 ad for something in
Traverse City, 0606 BRR theme? 0607 opening `Beyond Reality Radio`; so
the latter items nail this as WJNL, Kingsley MI, 50 kW daytimer now
caught four days in a row on air in the nightmiddle, when I tend to
check around bedtime. SAH of 184/minute, correlating with the usual
beat against probably KGYN OK.

Besides the silent-night ``schedule`` of 0030-0900 UT, WJNL also has a
critical-hours proviso of 2.5 kW, which means reduced to that power 2
hours after sunrise and before sunset, i.e. 2230-2430 & 0900-1100 UT
--- Not inbooming, so could be on that power now instead of 50 kW.

Finally on the fifth night I try for WJNL earlier: 0248 UT June 28 I
detect the tones of Jim Bohannon, whom I had heard on the first night,
UT Monday after 0607 in a weekend playback. NRC AM Log shows WJNL an
affiliate of JBo among many others; yet the Jim Bohannon show itself
does not know this, despite a station list all on one page easily
searched; in fact no station known on 1210:
http://www.jimbohannonshow.com/station-finder/
Also now has the usual SAH of ~3 Hz, and KGYN ID at 0259 UT. And
another day passes with no other known DX logs of WJNL cheating (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15807, June 27 at 1348, strong multiple carriers about
0.65 kHz apart centered near here; S9 about same level as Es-enhanced
15825 WWCR, so I wonder if WTWW-3 be experimenting with some digital
mode, nominal 15810 but not heard often or lately. Only in FM mode do
we hear one clear tone at high E-flat, compared to my keyboard, or
approx. 1244 Hz per:
http://pages.mtu.edu/~suits/notefreqs.html
but it cuts off at 1415* --- not sure whether a local device.

Tuning around again at 1709, I hear some similar sounds not on 15807,
but first around 15861, and then at 60-62 kHz intervals but variable
strengths and some of them missing: 15617, 15556, 15496, 15435, 15373,
15250, 15129, 15007. Except for Saudio on 15435 only. I suspect this set
are from a local device, as on the PL-880, they weaken as I walk away
from the house (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

WRMI 9395 is good with RAE; 9455 not on either. At 2102:40 a couple
split-second pips as if 9955 trying to turn on. I`ve listened to
enough noise by 2106, but leave a receiver on 9954-USB from which by
2124 I notice the carrier has come on and with WOR VP.

7490+, Wed June 26 at 2100 simulcast on WBCQ is apparently on with WOR

WRMI 9395 is good with RAE; 9455 not on either. At 2102:40 a couple
split-second pips as if 9955 trying to turn on. I`ve listened to
enough noise by 2106, but leave a receiver on 9954-USB from which by
2124 I notice the carrier has come on and with WOR VP.

7490+, Wed June 27 at 2100 simulcast on WBCQ is apparently on with WOR
but JBA in summer noise; too bad it`s not // on super 9330 this
time.

NOT confirmed, UT Thursday June 27 at 0114 the 0100 WOR, since WRMI is
still absent from 7780 as it was at earlier 0015 check. Next:
0930 UT Friday Unique Radio 5045-USB NSW

Also check 9330 WBCQ for unscheduled airings during testing phase.

Next WORLD OF RADIO 1988 should start airing Friday at 2200 on WRMI
9955.

[it appears we will now be running on a Friday-to-Thursday cycle, so
freshest new airings are on weekends]

** U S A. 7780, June 27 at 0015 & 0114 chex, this WRMI is off, while
7730 & 7570 are nominal.

BTW, I often still find a JBA carrier on 5800 such as at 0030 June 27,
presumably a low-power test from WRMI which has registered this
frequency available 24 hours at 100 kW to a 181-degree antenna; but
Jeff doesn`t want to tell us any more about it. On other occasions
there has been definite WRMI audio on it, such as // 5950 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330.00, June 26 at 2058, WBCQ-6 is on with music at S9+10
past 2100, not // 7490+ where WOR is outgoing but hardly incoming.

9330.00, June 27 at 0026, an old `AWWW` I recall with Tom Barna
hosting phone calls with hum, including someone who, then, said 9330
was ``inaudible in the Catskills``. Here and now, 9330 is S9+40/50+
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LLSTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1190, June 26 at 0607, RCC talk dominating at S9+20, then
fades. Got to be KDMR Kansas City MO, U2 5000/500 watts, EWTN
affiliate, but NOT // 11610 WEWN. The only other Catholic/EWTN on 1190
is in WV (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1210, June 26 at 0606 UT, `Beyond Reality Radio` starting
for another night, i.e. 50 kW daytimer WJNL Kingsley (Traverse City)
MI, and with usual SAH of about 3 Hz vs KGYN or WPHT. The third night
in a row I have caught this cheater at my bedtime --- of course, if
it`s doing it at 0606 UT, it`s also doing it all night.

Official FCC SS/SR times for WJNL in June are: 0030-0900 UT. In July
extended to -0915. Still have not seen anyone else reporting this,
after my two previous logs (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Glenn Hauser logs June 25, 2019

Glenn Hauser
 

** CHINA. 11440, June 25 at 1414, JBA Chinese, a regular spot for CNR1
jammer against Sound of Hope.

11460, June 25 at 1414, JBA carrier, surely another CNR1 jammer. Even
as a JBA carrier the primary assumption has to be a jammer, not SOH.

11100, June 25 at 1414, JBA Chinese, CNR1 jammer.

10960, June 25 at 1415, Chinese at S3-S5, much stronger than the 11+
MHz ones. Then I scan WOOB further up:

12190, June 25 at 1419, Chinese at S6-S8, CNR1 jammer.

12880, June 25 at 1419, Chinese at S5-S7, CNR1 jammer.

13070, June 25 at 1420, Chinese at S6-S8, CNR1 jammer.

15110, June 25 at 1420, Chinese at S9/S9+10, CNR1 jammer // the rest,
this inband one vs VOA; maybe a bit of victim audio too unlike the
others with not a hint here of SOH (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** MALI. 5995, June 25 at 0630, S9-S7 of dead air, as ORTM is back to
its old trix. Nor any 6000 RHC to bother it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTHERN MARIANA ISLANDS. 13690.050, June 25 at 1352, JBA
off-frequency carrier stix out in a BFO 1-kHz step bandscan. Aoki/NDXC
shows it`s VOA Chinese via SAIPAN, this hour only. And it`s gone at
1413 recheck (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 90.1, June 25 circa 1330 UT, can`t get
classical KUCO on one of my portables, nor the other classical KHCC in
Kansas; rather some gospel huxter.

Tropo must be up from somewhere else. Can it be Tulsa like I soon find
on TV? There is a 50 watt KJZT-LP there per WTFDA FM Database, jazz
and enough I guess to block KUCO inside Tulsa. No 90.1s in eastern
Kansas. The nearest adjacent gospelhuxters are: KBNV Fayetteville AR,
7.1H/16.0 V, 142m AFR; and less likely further KSCV Springfield MO,
11/11 kW, 150m, Bott network.

Tropo is up from the Tulsa area on numerous DTV channels, without
aiming exactly that way rather than further clockwise, June 25 from
1429 UT tune-in:

RF 13, KETA OKC is not decoding, must be because of DX CCI? But no
other 13 Okies; maybe KFJX Pittsburg KS; or two in AR, Arkadelphia and
Mountain View.

RF 11, KOED Tulsa, is in just fine if we wanted to watch OETA now!

BAD signal bars on: 9, 10, 14, 21, 28, 30, 31, 34, 35, 45, 46

RF 8, `Live` no longer with Kathie Lee & Regis, probably KJRH ``2``

RF 20, KQCW-HD, 19-1

RF 22, KOKI-TV, 23-1

RF 26, KTENNBC, 10-1 Ada again

RF 34, KMYT-TV, 41-1; at 1447 UT: 41-3 Grit with `Laramie`; 41-2
GetTV; 41-1 KMYT-TV

By 1441, RF 45 is decoding as 6-1 KOTV; 6-2 CW = same as KQCW on RF
20: with KQCW-19 Muskogee bug in LR; and KOTV 6.2 Tulsa bug in UL.
http://www.w4uvh.net/KQCWonKOTV.jpg

6.3, is NewsOn6NOW, i.e. THEN, looping replays of continuous local
news, reduced SD screen so that continuous commercials run on right
side --- same thing that sibling KWTV-25 ``9`` does in OKC on 9.2.
Photoed some of this, later in DTV pixel art breakup.

http://www.w4uvh.net/KOTVNewson6Now3.jpg
http://www.w4uvh.net/KOTVNewson6Now4.jpg

KOTV will eventually repack to RF 26, when? which may explain why KTEN
Ada will be bumped off from there; per rabbitears.info, KOTV will also
continue with relays on RF 30 and 19.

RF 45 KOTV seems to hold up longest and I stick with it, as old frame
freezes and pops up again and again, until as late as 1725 UT!

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1987 monitoring: confirmed UT
Tuesday June 25 at 0123 the 0100 on WRMI 7780, fair S7/S9+10 vs summer
noise level. Next:

2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v [and/or 2130]
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780
0930 UT Friday Unique Radio 5045-USB NSW

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330.00, June 25 at 2255, WBCQ-6 is on again, with an old
AWWW I remember hearing before; at 2300 changes to TimTron. Inbooming
of course (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9455, June 25 at 2011, WRMI with classic rock segués, some
so short it seems like medleys, no announcements until 2017, ``for
something different, go to apsradio.com`` --- so this M-F APS Radio
transmission is not canceled, contrary to what Ivo reported June 18.
S8 and much louder than 9475 WTWW which is only S7-S9. Meanwhile the
other WRMI on 9395 is still SMTV at S9 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 9475, June 25 at 2011, WTWW-1 is on but remarkably weak,
only S7-S9 and quite undermodulated. It used to be the SSOB by far
blasting in all day. It must be grossly underpowered now, as
propagation is certainly not to blame: Neighbor 9980 WWCR is on now
during its very limited schedule, blasting S9+20/30, and so is even 10
kW WWV on 10000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, June 25 at 1335, KVOH is already on way earlier than
nominal *1400 and to boot, propagating! Praise music in Spanish, of
course, S9-S6. SSOB by far with the only other SOBs being the JBA
Sa`udi carriers on 17895, 17705, 17615+ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1210, June 25 at 0604 UT, is 50 kW daytimer WJNL in MI again
on air in the nightmiddle? Yes! At first mixture with sportstalk,
maybe partial format of KGYN OK per DF, ads for DirecTV and NewsMax TV
[ugh! Has also been added to local cable lineup]. SAH of about
192/minute very close to same as last night just above 3 Hz.

Or is it WPHT? I see in NRC AM Log that both WPHT and KGYN call
themselves ``The Big Talker`` --- how original! But unsame lineups,
and no slogan heard which would not solve the question anyway.

0607 UT joins `Beyond Reality Radio`, in northerly null of KGYN(?)
which then fades down; 0634 UT recheck after newsbreak, promos for
1110 & 101 FM or more specifically 101.1 and 106.3. This all matches
with the group as explained in my yesterday`s report, e.g. 1110 is
sibling station WJML. But are they B.R.R. program affiliates? Yes per
http://beyondrealityradio.com/
if you let it scroll until it get to Michigan. Jimbo as heard last
night at this time was of course a playback Sunday night filler; no
new shows on weekends. Can`t find any program skeds for WJNL et al.
Are the call letters supposed to imply ``JourNaLism``? Website is
instead devoted to ``Deals``.

I`ve yet to see anyone else logging WJNL on the MW lists, where I
posted this ASAP even before including it in my multiband loggings;
was my tip not helpful? Or not noticed without a big headline of its
own? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 11460, June 24 at 1416, CNR-1 jammer at S5-S7, on an SOH
frequency. Only WOOB one found in a 10-16 MHz scan, altho there is a
suspicious JBA carrier on 14700, unlisted in EiBi or Aoki/NDXC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GERMANY. 17690, June 24 at 1409, JBA carrier with flutter (or with
jammer CCI). Aoki/NDXC shows only VOA Tibetan via Lampertheim during
this hour only. Don`t usually hear a carrier here; only other signals
on band are 17615+ Saudi JBA carrier, and more than that already from
17775 KVOH (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, June 24 at 0602, JBA carrier, presumed SIBC.
Seems awfully early, but Honiara sunset will be 0710, now at its
earliest; at 10 degrees south it varies only 30 minutes over the
course of a year. Wonder if they are modulating too? (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1987 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
June 23 at 2130 on WRMI 7780, just barely audible.

Also confirmed UT Monday June 24 at 0130 on WRMI 9395, fair.

Also confirmed UT Monday June 24 at 0230 on WRMI 7780, poor.

Also confirmed UT Monday June 24 from 0300.5 on WBCQ-6 500 kW 9330.00,
VG of course, S9+20/30 as has just brought up simulcast with Area 51;
at 0328 I confirm WOR also on 5130.367, much weaker S9 vs high storm
noise level.

Also confirmed UT Monday June 24 on WRMI 9955, S9+10/20. Next:

1816 UT Monday IRRS 7290 Romania
0100 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780

** U S A. 9330.00 (I don`t write 9330.000 since I am not axually
bothering to measure it to that detail, but probably), Sunday June 23
at 2130, WBCQ-6 superpower test is on, but this week modern rock, and
not simulcasting `Marion`s Attic` from 7490 like happened partially
last week. At 2205 I find it is now = much weaker 7490v with `Uncle
Bill`s Melting Pot` including some Turkish music. Unknown what was at
2230, but before 2400 Harry Shearer`s `Le Show` is wrapping up on
9330, so that is still // 7490 unlike the 2300 hour last Sunday. At
0000 UT Monday June 24, 9330 goes into an `Allan Weiner Worldwide`
replay, instead of `Encore` classical music now on 7490, and which I
hear on webcast. Unknown what at 0100, but before 0300, another AWWW
hour is ending from at 0200 start, somewhat curtailed in order to cut
to // Area 51, 5130+ for WORLD OF RADIO, thanks! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, June 24 at 0601, S9+30 of dead air from WTWW-2, also
the constant companions much weaker plus/minus ~12.9 kHz spur carriers
just above 5072 and just below 5098. Maybe recently finished Sunday
night broadcast and not turned off yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 1210, UT Monday June 24 at 0606 UT, surprised to hear a
program promo from WJNL, and into Jim Bohannon --- dominant on
frequency vs KGYN or whatever, with SAH of 186/minute = just over 3
Hz. Still there at 0629 UT joint ID with three FM frequencies starting
with 94.5, and ads mentioning Mackinaw and Traverse City.

No wonder I`m getting it since NRC AM Log shows WJNL is a 50 kW
non-direxional daytimer! Plus 2500 watts critical hours, which this is
not. CoL Kingsley MI, which is just south of Traverse City.

It`s in a group ``The Information Station`` which also includes:
WHAK-960, WWMN-106.3, WJML-1110, W266CS-101.1, but that does not
account for the one FM frequency I copied, 94.5.

The WTFDA FM Database is inaccessible (but not its whats new page).
Per FCC AM & FM Query searches, 94.5 would be 50 kW WYPV in Mackinaw
City, same licensee Mitten News as WJNL.

Anyhow, we have here a 50 kW ND daytimer on the air in the middle of
the night, so should get out widely if they do it again! (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1550, June 24 at 1325 UT, more than two hours after LSR here
of 1115 UT, dead air from NE/SW and a SAH of 264/minute = 4.4 Hz. At
1330 UT now modulating ESPN. The only fit around here per NRC AM log
is KESJ St Joseph MO, 2.5 kW ND at day; discounting KYAL Sapulpa OK,
also 2.5 kW but eastward from here (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1700, June 24 at 1331 UT open carrier/dead air. Can`t
get a sharp DF on it; got to be either KKLF TX or twice-as-far KBGG IA

Ndarason Internationale this hour via ASCENSION. 7415 takes over after
0600. Kuwait is supposed to be on 5960 before and after this hour,
probably off-frequency, but inaudible now this late by 9 am there
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 11120, June 22 at 1257, CNR1 jammer, Chinese talk,
S8-S9+10.

12500, June 22 at 1258, CNR1 jammer now in music, S7-S9, // 11785.

12870, June 22 at 1258, CNR1 jammer, S7-S9.

Then in a very quick bandscan, these are the only three WOOB ones
found 9-15 MHz, and all go off at 1300*. All three are CNR1/Sound of
Hope frequencies per EiBi, but no trace of low-power SOHs here,
off-frequency; Aoki/NDXC misses 12870, nothing between 12820 and 12880

** FRANCE [non]. 9395, UT Sun June 23 at 0000, WRMI with Radio for
Peace International, sign-on with faux beep timesignal, IDs in
English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, and into woman lexuring in
French. So this is *not* monthly as Ivo had assumed, but weekly --- or
rather, I think it`s a replay of same program last week. So maybe is
produced only monthly repeatedly aired weekly. Will they ever get around
to English via WRMI? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 17, K17JN-D, Enid, back on the air June 22 at 1430 UT
check; had been missing yesterday. Not only ``no signal`` but no
signal from the 3ABNers.

RF 23, KSBI ``52`` continues to be the one major OKC DTV station with
a marginal/insufficient signal to decode reliably on either of my
external antennas; STB signal meter shows it on the BAD verge. Why?
It`s never been up to par since repacking from RF 50. Which means we
can`t get reliable reception of its subchannels either, which are not
on cable: Bounce, Laff, Grit and Escape, per rabbitears.info.

For KSBI, rabbitears.info shows
1085' 1000 kW ND (E) (Vertical ERP: 300 kW)
(63.4 kW + 11.98 dB gain = 1000 kW ERP)

Compare to its owner, KWTV RF 25:
``1568' 748 kW DA (E) (Vertical ERP: 249 kW)
Directional Pattern [almost ND, minor caves]
(64.4 kW + 10.65 dB gain = 748 kW ERP)``

or the other licensed parameters, one of them temporary? Both on same
tower per precise coördinates:

``1085' 819 kW ND (E) (Vertical ERP: 245.7 kW)
(65.2 kW + 10.99 dB gain = 819 kW ERP)``

Which mean by ERP, that KWTV ought to have a lesser signal, certainly
not the case as received in Enid. I guess being almost 500 feet higher
on the tower make the difference? Will KSBI ever get raised?

As of last Nov 30, see DXLD 18-49 for an explanation of the situation

Alan Gale from his location in England: ``Hi Glen[n], Nothing at all
heard on 9485 kHz again from HLR, but I thought I might at least catch
the new relay of WoR on 15770 kHz at 2030 UT, but the band had pretty
much faded out here by then. It's usually a much better signal at that
time of the day, but conditions have been a bit disturbed on there for
the past few days, even during the afternoons. It's back to IRRS on
7290 kHz at 1815 on Monday again then; at least that has been coming
in very well here in recent weeks. Alan``

Confirmed by gh, Saturday June 22 at 2044 the new 2030 on WRMI 15770,

Also confirmed Sat June 22 at 2100 on WRMI 9955, S6-S8, as usual JIP
theme music after my first eleven words, as the playout continue to
start early before this transmitter switch to program feed after IS &
ID loop. Maybe I should start my utterances twice in a row.

There was a special WOR broadcast on WBCQ-6, 500 kW Super-station
test, Sat June 22 at 2130 on 9330.00, tnx to Larry Will. He notified
me ahead of time but unfortunately there was a typo giving the time as
2310, so we and those I quickly notified missed it; checked at 2310,
Timtron was on.

** U S A. Here`s John Carver`s version of `Allan Weiner Worldwide`, on
WBCQ, UT Sat June 22 at 0000:

``Tonight's show started just a bit early again after some fill music
on 7490. Freddie calls right after the theme song ends. I think it's
Allan and Angela in the studio as I haven't hard anyone else. Allan
says he's being broadcast tonight on the new transmitter at full
power.

Checking 9330 I have it at 20 over without adjusting the antenna tuner
or changing the pre-selector. Allan states that the tube that had the
damaged socket weighs two hundred and fifty pounds and has been
repaired. He also stated that they were renaming the program again to
Angela and Allan Weiner World Wide.

They're still working on the antenna every day between seven in the
morning till around four in the afternoon so testing only at night. He
said that the sign on date would be July 8. Freddie finally booted off
the phone at 0024 and another phone call immediately while at the same
time another telephone was ringing in the studio. Another phone call
at 0027. Again during the phone call two other phones in the studio
were heard ringing.

TimTron on the phone at 0033 commenting on the signal strength at his
QTH and again another phone in the studio ringing. Lots of good
reports from Australia, Allan says. Phone call from Canada at 0036.
Allan said that they had received a phone call from someone in
Virginia during the last test at full power. Said he guy didn't own a
shortwave radio and was picking up 9330 on the smart speaker he'd
installed in his ceiling and was asking how to stop the radio signal
from coming in. Said he wanted to stop it.

Phone call at 0039 from a FM station owner in Kansas who'd just bought
a SW receiver a month ago and had stumbled across 9330. Asked some
questions about the station and Allan asked questions about his
station. Said he had a good signal on a portable with just the whip.
Reading of emails at 0054 and closing prayer at 0101. Program was off
the air at 0105. John, Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330.00, Sat June 22 at 2043, WBCQ-6 already on at S9+25,
song in Spanish; after 2300 it`s TimTron, and UT Sun June 23 at 0115
`Lumpy Gravy`, Larry Will & Jane acknowledging reception reports,
presumably // 5130+ buried in the noise (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, June 22 at 2330, WTWW-2 is off, but webcast is about
ham radio field day instead of `Theater Organ in [sic] the Ozarx`;
recheck at 2355, now webcast is stereo TOITO so I missed most of it.
By 0546, 5085 is on with rock but weak, only S9; WTWW-1, 5830 is also
on at 0549 but only S3-S7 and as usual undermodulated (Glenn Hauser,

2046-2047, JBA blobcarriers at intervals of 61.1 or 61.0 kHz. Question
is whether these be spurs out of a SWBC station, or some local device?
Probably the latter. The top one I first thought might be out of WEWN,
but 15610 is much weaker. I`ve often noted a JBA carrier on 15435,
which may be Sa`udi Arabia only between 1450 and 1800 (Glenn Hauser,

DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS updated June 22:
http://www.worldofradio.com/dxpgms.html

** CHINA. 9180, June 21 at 1330, CNR1 jammer, S3-S5 on Sound of Hope
frequency, // 11785 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15125-15155, June 21 at 1925, RHC 15140 is VG, much stronger
than usual, splattering out plus/minus 15 kHz, on portable with
reelout during power outage in Enid. Something`s always wrong at RHC.
Probably getting sporadic E boost like the USA stations on 19m, q.v.
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 9455, June 21 at 1332, soft YL talk in Japanese,
S5-S8, mentions Shiokaze more than once? 1335 to kid choral song, and
then found same stronger but not synch S6-S9 on 9705. Aoki/NDXC shows
both are Furusato no Kaze at 1330-1400, but from different sites in
Taiwan: Paochung, and Tamsui respectively. Use it or lose it:
Bangladesh had Nepali at 1315-1345 on 9455; now on 4750 per EiBi but
not Aoki (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 88.3, June 21 at 1555 UT, the dead air carrier from
K202BY, the Family Radio satellator in Enid, is off. It`s been on and
dead for many months. This is quickly noticed, as I use 88.3 for the
BST-1 FM feeder in the car, which in most of Enid easily overrides it.
But in time for the widespread Enid power outage, ironically, this
carrier is back on (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. A couple brown-outs and then a blackout
interrupt our lunch at an Enid restaurant, Friday June 21 at 1833 UT.
Fortunately we started just ahead of that but there is a delay
refilling our drinx from the hi-tech dispenser. This turns out to be a
prolonged and widespread but spotty outage.

1390, KCRC is off, while its sibling stations from same studio but
different transmitter sites, lose modulation but carriers stay on:
95.7, 97.7, 106.3, 107.1. Competitors 960, KGWA and 103.1 KOFM luck
out, stay on. All of these have HQ on the north side of Enid a couple
miles apart. 96.9 and 1640, also related to KCRC but with remote
studios and transmitters, are unaffected.

Power is also out when we get home, no AC or anything, and since it`s
the hottest day of the year so far, 99 degrees, we soon head out for
cool places. Public library is still powerfully cooled, so spend about
an hour there, along with the usual homeless crowd. Monitoring some of
the stations for signs of electrical. But they might not reboot
immediately even when restored.

On library computer, checking OG&E System Outage map,
https://www.oge.com/wps/portal/oge/outages/systemwatch/
and astoundingly, shows nothing out in Enid, just Ada. Maybe it`s all
fixed already? But back home, still off. Finally notify OG&E circa
2030 UT, as should have at first rather than assuming they would have
been inundated with calls.

Might as well get some shopping in, if stores are powered. CVS is dark
with a sign on the door. Driving along US 412, clearly the outage is
very scattered. Some electronic signs are still blaring away, while
nearby traffic signals are off (but most still working). We find some
stores further west in Enid that are nominal.

Finally we hear KOFM briefly mention what happened, later found at the
Enid Eagle:

``ENID, Okla. — More than 9,000 OG&E Electric Services customers were
without power for more than four hours Friday afternoon, June 21,
2019, on the hottest day of the year so far, which happened to be the
first day of summer 2019.

A broken cross-arm on a transmission line in the city took down
electricity at about 1:30 p.m. for as many as 9,405 customers before
power began being restored around 5 p.m. for some and by 6 for most,
according to Facebook accounts and OG&E reports.``

Back home again, and running a very small fan with battery power:
94.3, KLGB-LP is also off but some other gospel huxter is there, Bott
Network no longer blotted out. At times seems same if not // 95.1
KQCV. But at 2232 UT, also south central Kansas weather. That would be
100 kW KCVW Kingman KS.

Enid: 99.9, KVBN-LP, same tower as KLGB-LP, is also off, but back at
next check 0509 UT June 22; while 94.3 is on but dead air; no one
around to reboot it? 92.1, KAMG-LP remained on with its constant dead
air.

101.5, the peripatetic KOCD Okeene is on c. 1920 with RDS as KOCD___

Nothing audible on 1390 with KCRC off, but its splatter also off
audiblizes weak signals on adjacents at 2235 UT check: 1380 from
Lawton direxion, and 1400 from Norman direxion, but with that nulled,
SAH and something weaker, probably KWON Bartlesville.

OG&E finally turns back on at 2248 UT, 4.25 hours after it went out.
Whew. Now OG&E website shows 4870 Enid customers powerless (Glenn
Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15825 WWCR VG, 15770 WRMI good, 15610 WEWN very good, enough
to hear its squeal, and 15555-USB WJHR audible, June 21 at 1923, all
getting big boost from sporadic E as checked on portables during Enid
power outage (see OKLAHOMA); but no boost on 21525 WRMI, so MUF into

** U S A. 9330.00, June 21 at 0512, WBCQ-6, S9+20 with rock music.

9330.00, UT Sat June 22 tune-in WBCQ at 0011 and listen for rest of
hour to `Allan & Angela Weiner Worldwide` or some variant as
discussed. Appears to be a new live show, all about the SuperStation
with a constant stream of callers, and constant hum on the signal
which is apparently coming from the phone line. We glean more
information about all this, summarizing:

Now running full 500 kW, as it will be when launched as the client
insists on not one watt less than 500,000. General testing sked is 4
pm – 7 am (EDT = 20-11 UT), while the antenna crew works on it the
remaining 9 hours in the daytime. Maybe on air less this weekend while
checking out circuit breakers, etc.

Everything has to be ready for the World`s Last Chance ministries
launch, now set for Monday July 8, which will be broadcasting to
Middle East, Europe, USA and Canada [this implies the latest HFCC
registration in Arabic and English only, rather than the imaginary
worldwide multi-language schedule originally publicized].

Despite the super-power, there is very little RF blanking in the local
area, he says. Audio processor is a $14K Omnia 11, for good sound;
lo-fi audio is not good for listenability.

Transmitter is DRM capable but --- Allan is interrupted by caller
Freddy to explain what that is, before AW can finish, and does not get
back to it, but seemed he was about to say they would not be running
DRM?

At 0024, AW finally mentions that this is 21 June, YOOL 2019, so
indeed a new live show. (But not the next time it may go out.)

The Continental transmitter is made in USA, believe it or not, Dallas
TX. They use top-notch components. Very complex water cooling requires
constant attention; shift schedules are being set up. Power bill will
be in the high(?) 5-figures per month.

AW`s note to staff: put VORW on some of the test broadcasts. Also
going to simulcast Amateur Radio Roundtable Tuesday night (with 5130).
Reading e-mail and prayer, running over until finished at 0106, back
to music.

Another AWWW hour plays at 0200, and yet another oldone at 0400. In
between didn`t pay much attention but at 0339 noted that zappahead
Larry Will was in charge, apparently live, soliciting e-mail reports

** CUBA. 9580, June 21 at 0117, CRI English relay is suptorted,
S9+10/20; while same on 9570 via ALBANIA with decent modulation,
similar strength runs about 2 words ahead. Must take another satellite
hop to get it to Habana. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 4765, June 21 at 0106, no signal from Radio Progreso,
supposed to start at 0030. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7255-, June 19 at 0611, VON is gone again. One of the most
unreliable major SW stations. I suspect the problem is operational,
not technical (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. RF 26, June 20 at 1455 UT, KTEN 10-1 Ada is
decoding with NBC, along with 10-2 The CW, and 10-3 ABC, as this
station remains affiliate of two major networks, just like in the old
days when they had only one analog channel and cherry-picked which
network to run at which times.

After 1502 UT, I snapped a big ID slide, and then a multi-city super
ID over programming, Ada-Ardmore-Sherman-Denison-Durant, in
OK-OK-TX-TX-OK:

My TV DX photo archive, which could need some updating:

BTW, a documentary history of KTEN has appeared on OETA, and I have it
on tape. I see at rabbitears.info that KTEN is due to repack from
channel 26 to 17, why? which means it will be blocked in Enid by
K17JN-D except when it fails.

Ada is not that far, but normally beyond range, 210 km = 131 st mi,
city-to-city. This was from my higher rooftop antenna, aimed close to
Ada a bit east from OKC, into my HDTV screen.

Then I check my other lower antenna aimed more clockwise, and to my
surprise thru its STB into LDTV get a PSIP on RF 26 for 6-1, KTAL-DT!
Its own video may have decoded briefly, mixed with KTEN. KTAL is
Texarkana-Shreveport, named for its one-time Tall tower (now 1524 feet
AGL) halfway between in the NW corner of LA near Vivian. That would be
approx. 525 km = 328 stmi. I think it`s new on DTV here, while seen a
number of times when on analog 6. KTAL is staying on 26, so maybe will
be getting it more once KTEN is gone, unless something else
intervene.

Per Hepburn maps, Ada is near the center of enhanced level 5-6 tropo
ring while Enid is toward the edge at level 2-3, like Vivian on the
opposite edge (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1986 monitoring: tuned in a minute
too late, but confirmed at 2101, Wednesday June 19 on WRMI 9955, fair
on the portable PL-880 and VP JBA on WBCQ 7490+, too weak to compare.
This WRMI transmission has usually been upcut, so I time exactly when
it ends: 2128:39. Since #1986 lasted 28:48, playout likely started
about 9 seconds before 2100:00; while transmitter does not bring it up
any earlier than that ToH moment, out of synch.

Also confirmed UT Thursday June 20 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, fair S9-S6,
no upcut.

** U S A. 9330.1, June 19 at 2306, moanin` & groanin` hour from TOMBS
via WBCQ classic transmitter, no #6 yet. At 0151 June 20, now 9330.00
is on with very strong rock music. Others indicate it came up only
some time after 0130. 0537 recheck, amid an old `AWWW` dated only by
remark that he hoped Kavanaugh would be confirmed; but bits and pieces
of details about the SuperStation: says the huge copper feedline alone
cost $900K; and that total power consumption when running full-bore
500 kW, would be 950 kW.

9330.00, June 21 at 0116, 9330.00 on again with rock music; 0225 amid
another `AWWW` playback. It seems alternating those is the usual
programming in the test phase. 0300 back to rock (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WORLD OF RADIO 1987, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9475, June 19 at 1828, WTWW-1 is S9-S5 of open carrier/dead
air, instead of merely undermodulated as always now. SFAW!

9475, June 20 at 1514, WTWW-1 is off, while 5830 is still on at S9+10
fading to S7 and of course undermodulated. So that rules it out as
source of some unID FM blob circa 9355 others were hearing (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ZAMBIA. 13680, June 19 at 1258, a few notes being repeated, an IS?
1300 into different music, poor S2-S3. Presumed Voice of Hope Africa,
scheduled to start at 1300 (except an hour earlier SaSu) per EiBi; and
not Aoki/NDXC where it`s unlisted. There, your only choices would be
CNR1 jamming and/or SOH, but this is not that. At 1405 increased to
S7-S9 with gospel? music. VOHA aims 315 degrees toward W Africa, and
us beyond. Seems to be same as this:

UNIDENTIFIED. 9200, June 20 at 0536, mystery open carrier at S8-S3.
It`s been there most nights, altho have not bothered to log it for a
while (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15476.225, June 19 at 1842, since it`s Wednesday,
looking for LRA36, but only this JBA carrier detectable; unlikely
RNASG would have shifted frequency, so suspect a local device, altho
not noticed before (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
