** ALBANIA. 6020 & 9570, July 27 at 0043 check, both CRI relays to
North America are still OFF (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 9665.09, July 27 at 0046, Brazuguese, so as I suspected
from previous JBA carrier log, it is indeed Voz Missionária varied up
to the plus side, after a long time well below 9665.0, and found once
even below 9664.0 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA [and non]. 11870 & 11890, July 27 at 1428, CRI English relay
on 11880 is now flanked by much weaker spurs of S5-S7 vs S9+20/30 on
11880. First time I have ever noted this, but means by now this has to
be the same transmitter airing RHC Spanish in the tardes centered on
11850 with plus/minus 10 kHz spurs on 11840 and 11860, the latter
obscured by jamming at least until RM close (and in previous seasons
all 10 kHz lower, 11830-11840-11850). Something`s always wrong at
RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15140, July 27 at 1616, RHC Spanish somewhat distorted with
hum; 11760 somewhat distorted and no hum. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 11940, July 27 at 0050, REE is managing to modulate in
Castilian, unlike last time when it was just noise. But also like last
time, the N American frequency 9690 is AWOL. 11940 for S America is
offbeam for us, and we always hear 12030 better, close to directly off
its back toward Mideast, but it is not run this late.

12030, Saturday July 27 at 1429, REE music is JBA, while 9690 is
inaudible, probably still down to North America, altho when active
this early on weekends only, it`s a poor second to 12030 for Mideast
backwards (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1992 monitoring; confirmed first
SWBC, Friday July 26 at 2200 on WRMI 9955 (which is always SSE, not
NNW as I miswrote last time --- altho a lot of us depend on its back
radiation.) Seems like lite Cuban pulse jamming starts up at same
time; tnx a lot! Anyhow, my local line noise level has relented for
the moment, allowing 9955 thru clearly at S9/+10.

Also confirmed UT Sat July 27 after 0130 on WRMI 7780, JBA in HNL.

Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria, confirms: ``GERMANY, World of Radio #1992 via

Not confirmed Sat July 27 at 1130 on WRMI 9955 --- a gospel huxter
instead, as now shown on the skedgrid. All the other WOR airings on
WRMI appear to be intact, including three imaginary ones between 21
and 22 on the no frequencies of System D.

Not confirmed Sat July 27 at 1430-1500 on Hamburger Lookalradio,
7265-CUSB; via UTwente SDR, as usual, not a trace of even a reduced

** U S A. 7490.13v, Friday July 26 at 2358, WBCQ S9+20 including
noise, so hardly readable, 6160 hardly audible as local line noise is
on again; just prior to this week`s live `AAAWWW`. But I do manage to
make some sporadic notes, none from the webcast: 5130 will air a
special on Saturday starting at 4pm ET [20 UT], ``a free radio program
coming out of the West``, but no further details. (Could it be Station
YHWH, which did a special on WBCQ previously?).

Oh oh, he says #2 transmitter on 5130 just shut down. Some fumbling
around as he tries to phone Tom while on the air, then unusually plays
a couple minutes of music from 0009. AW back before 0012 saying with
5130 off, will just be trimulcasting now instead of quadri-, i.e.
still also on 6160, 3265.

A 50 kW transmitter has been testing, retuned to 6160, which he
nicknames ``Sexy 61-60``. Now during a break in the local HNL, I can
also hear him on 6160, but 7490 is better. By 0035, between random HNL
bursts, I find 6160 at S9-S5, and no ACI yet from 6165, as RHC may not
come on until 0100. Now I measure it just a tad below 6160.00. He also
mentions that WBCQ is employing more and more computer control. Then
reads an anti-Moslem dissertation. For a more complete summary, over
to John H. Carver:

``Tonight's show started a bit early again on 7490. First voice over
during the theme music was moon bats. Allan and Angela in the studio
again. Opening talk about all the landscaping Angela is doing around
the station. Phone lines are locked down at the moment. Allan
discloses that 6160 is indeed using the old 9330 transmitter after
some TimTron modifications were added for better fidelity. Allan
announces that the 5130 transmitter has gone down and attempts to
restart it remotely. The attempt fails and he puts some music on and
goes out to the transmitter building to see if he can start it. He
returned after a few minutes and announced that the transmitter has a
grid short and will have to be worked on tomorrow morning. So they are
only transmitting on 3265, 6160 and 7490.

He states that he is very happy in general with the new transmitter
and antenna. Says it will be back on in late August as they continue
tweaking things on it. Says that airtime on 6160 will sell at about
twenty-five dollars an hour with generous discounts for blocks of
time. Wants good pirate shows, good music shows, etc. Reads some old
emails at 0035 of which one sets off some political talk. Reading of
current emails at 0058 and closing prayer at 0102. After the prayer he
announces that there will be a special program on 5130 on Saturday
starting at four Eastern. For tomorrow only the Area 51 service will
move to 6160. No phone calls allowed this evening and Allan ran out of
time before he could give the state of the station address that he
promised at the beginning of the program. Program was off the air at
0106 with no music and directly into Brother Stair. John, Mid-North
Indiana``

6159.976, July 27 at 0504 is its measurement now; wobbles slightly in
real time and probably varies more over a longer period. This is all I
can do with its JBA carrier in HNL, not determine what programming.

Earlier we had this from Larry Will in Maryland:

``Allan tells me that there is a special programming block that will
be on 5130 Saturday from 4pm to 2am US eastern time [20-06 UT]. This
displaces our Area 51 programming.

However, we will be on the new 6160 service instead. This is the
former 9330 transmitter that's been re-tuned for the new frequency.
I've been listening to this new service this week and it is putting
out a great signal, much better than 5130 during the times when Area
51 is on.

On Sunday we'll be back on 5130 but should also have a simulcast on
6160 as well.

Our regular 3265 weekend simulcast will remain in place. If I recall,
this service simulcasts Area 51 all weekend except for Pirate Joe's
talk show on Saturday night.

Allan will be on live tonight at 8 pm eastern time on
3265//5130//6160//7490. Cheers, Lw``

BUT, that arrangement will depend on whether they can get the 5130.4
transmitter working again. Note that this also implies that at 0300v
UT Mondays, WORLD OF RADIO should be on 3264.9 and 6160v, as well as
5130.38v. Can anyone confirm by monitoring? 3265 just doesn`t make it
here, especially in summer noise (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 15809.958, July 27 at 1502, JBA offset carrier must be
another WTWW-3 test, while neighbor 15825 WWCR is only a trifle
stronger JBA carrier. No sporadic E boost today over their
two-close-for-F2 one-megameter paths! First noted 15810 JBA carrier
via UTwente at 1458 after trying to hear WOR on 9485.

9930, Saturday July 27 at 1610, surprised to find WTWW-2 on here for
the first time in ages; very strong on caradio but no precision
measurement possible. Ted Randall in hamtalk, but his interviewee is
muffled, unreadable as if almost totally off-mike. Maybe was an axual
ham contact not patched in properly for broadcast? 1615 modulation
cuts off and on, while carrier remains steady; 1620 carrier off during
which I check all other possible WTWW frequencies on the DX-398 and
hear nothing. 1622 back on with dead air. 1623 rockmusic and jingle;
Ted asking for reports and music requests; implies a prize for those
citing a specific phrase. Apparently testing with pre-recorded
programming. Still going with rock music, ham ads past 1700; and still
at 1804 check plugging auto-music-request on website for the ``5085``
service --- but it`s 9930 now, geez (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 91.3, July 27 at 1559 UT after financial talk show, ``91.3,
KAXR Arkansas City`` ID. On caradio a few miles north of Enid; I never
hear this in Enid due to ACI from local 91.1. At this location, Enid`s
92.1 dead air and even 91.1 are losing out to CCI. KAXR is 13.5 kW, a
disposable AFR station.

91.5, July 27 before and after 1600 UT, on caradio north of Enid, two
stations combating, gospel music vs talk. Music must be KSNS, Medicine
Lodge KS, 95 kW vertical, 0 kW horizontal, just across the OK
frontier, and somewhat audible in Enid if it get past 91.7 KOSU and
its HD noise; as for the other, of the three 91.5 Okies, none likely
--- too far, too low-powered or both (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** CHINA. 14850, July 28 at 1329, CNR1 jammer very poor. Bad
propagation from FE today; other JBA carriers or JBA Chinese: at 1335,
11120, 11440; at 1421, 11100, 11440;

and at 1420 on 10410, but this one is a -1390 KCRC local mix with
11800, temporary CRI English mistaken relay frequency via CUBA, q.v.,
confirmed as overload by vanishing when I switch from Preamp2 to 1.
When CRO goes back to 11880, the mix will go back to 10490 where it
``belongs`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11800, July 28 at 1403, CRI English relay is here instead of
11880!! Punch-up error, no doubt. Good modulation for a change, and
S9+20. But this frequency is *not* flanked by plus/minus 10 kHz spurs
like 11880 was; different transmitter, also accounting for the error
by an unfamiliar sloppyrator at a different site? 1405 starts
`Roundtable`. Fortunately, HFCC shows nothing at all supposed to be on
11800 at 1400-1600; nor anything in the Western Hemisphere on 11795 or
11805, only some brief Asians on the adjacents (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-USB, UT Sun July 28 at 0030, honky-tonk music
at S9, surely Wolverine Radio which consistently puts in these bigsigs
for a pirate. 0047 just missed an ID? 0056 definite ID. Many more logs
here between 0028 and 0126:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,56335.0.html
where the keyword in song titles was ``long`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1992 monitoring: confirmed Saturday July 27
at 2107, the 2100 on WRMI 9955, poor S4-S6; so I can`t know if
transmitter was really on by 2100 this time.

NOT confirmed UT Sunday July 28 at 0130 on WRMI 5850, so our only WRMI
broadcast beamed NW across North America is a bust. 5850 is not on the
air at all, nor at earlier check 0052 past 0101, boding ill. So two of
the three Saturday times on WRMI were no-shows.

Confirmed UT Sunday July 28 at 0322 already underway the nominal 0315
on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, going from Brazil to Canada, which is 3
minutes into, so started circa 0319; S9+10 and not too much line noise
level: I then find that it`s worst between 3.0 and 9.5 MHz; also with
some peaks in the MW band such as around 1200. Hope OG&E will be back
on the case Monday.

** U S A. WBCQ special on 5130? Thread about this on the WOR iogroup:

So can anyone hear 5130.38? Is it on the air, and if so with what
``special free radio from the west`` at 20-06 UT? Would not expect it
to be on Area 51 webcast, which this was going to replace today, and
that is playing rock music (Glenn Hauser, 2234 UT Sat July 27, WOR iog
via DXLD)

I quickly checked; it's about an SIO 444 now here in MD with music on
my KiwiSDR:

(Chris Smolinski, Black Cat Systems, Westminster, MD USA,
http://www.blackcatsystems.com 2237 UT, ibid.)

The title comes up on a blank page (Glenn, 2246 UT, ibid.)

Browser issue? (Chris, 2248 UT, ibid.)

I guess so - that was on Firefox. Now getting it on Edge. Could not
understand an ID at 2252, then tribute to Wolfman Jack. I suspect it
is not YHWH (Glenn, 2253 UT, ibid.)

Checked 5130 a couple times 2100 and 2200 UT; pop and rock music mix
with good signal in Montreal (Gilles Letourneau, 2253 UT, ibid.)

I`ve continued listening with one ear [only via Chris` SDR]. Oldies,
with some modulation dead air breaks. IDs something like ``Campus
Radio Summer Camp``, with seemingly legit callsign IDs for three?
Indiana stations, one of them an -LP, in Bloomington; and for WBCQ
5130. Asking for calls from SWLs to 812 369 5839. Announcement breaks
circa 2304 and 2331. And other times in between, seems like live DJs
(Glenn, 2338 UT, ibid.)

This appears to be the source, higher fi and without the dropouts:
https://wiux.org/listen/991fm/
(Glenn, 0011 UT, ibid.)

Hi Glenn, Yep, I also hear WBCQ transmitting on 5130 kHz. Report is as
follows: 0105 UT -- English- Program: Music Request Show. SINPO 45334.
There is quite a bit of flutter. So, they must have managed to get it
to return to the air. 73 de (Chuck W3ON Gessner, 0112 UT, ibid.)

With GPS-sync active on my KiwiSDR, I make it 5130.317 kHz at 0135 UT
July 28. Classic rock. S9+20. Relatively good modulation with some
distortion, and some thunderstorm QRN (Jim Barrett, Elmira, NY, 0157
UT, ibid.)

Area 51 on 6160 [instead] --- Tuned in at 2245 to get my equipment
adjusted. Was mostly noise till 0003 [July 28]. Signal started to come
up and wasn't terrible. Marred by two long, noisy hets. At 0101 the
audio disappeared completely and could only hear RHC [6165]. Had to
shut off the SYNC function and go to a narrower filter to get correct
audio back. Could still hear the audio from Cuba underneath things but
could copy Area 51 (John Carver, Mid-North Indiana, 0207 UT, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

Canned IDs every half hour or so, so swift that it was hard to copy
call letters. At first I thought one of them was WIUS, but that`s in
IL, and WIUX-LP correlates with Bloomington IN, as well as music
audio seemingly matching but far out of synch with WBCQ via MD SDR ---
in fact, WIUX itself about 32 seconds behind WBCQ as received here at
0014 July 28. One of the other Indiana calls sounded like WWHH, but
that`s not right for any legal station. Did anyone copy them all for
sure?

At 0024 UT July 28, I`m finally trying to hear it on my own receiver,
VP S8 on 5130.32; programming on 7490+ and 6160 all sound different at
0028. At 0047, 6160 is S9+10 vs local high line noise level.

Remember that Larry Will expected his Area 51 to be on three WBCQ
frequencies Sunday evening/UT Monday: 6160, 5130 and 3265. Please
confirm whether this applies to WORLD OF RADIO at 0300v, not just
5130+ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9930, July 27 at 2101, WTWW-2 is OFF, after having been ON
during midday as in previous report, testing? Nor is there any signal
audible on 15810-, WTWW-3, which was on earlier that morning.

5085 (nor 9930) is still not on at 2336 nor by 0000 UT July 28, no
`Theatre Organ in the Ozarx` to be heard, but probably would be a
repeat, and probably on webcast (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 1660, July 28 at 0305 UT, Waco ad making fast SAH with the
other 1660 around here, Kansas City; then Waco rejoins a Rangers game,
presumably silly baseball from Texas vs another game on KWOD. The two
are mutually nullable as usual. Checking only because MWCircle had
this item via editor Steve Whitt on July 26:

USA ESPN KRZI 1660 off air

https://awfulannouncing.com/espn/espn-central-texas-radio-station-vandalized-damage-knocks-station-off-air.html
tho it`s not clear in this brief item what the vandalism was and
replies from the P.D. indicate it was back on by the next day (Glenn

** U S A. RADIO FREE AMERICA
The greatest radio shows in America, on your schedule
https://www.radiofreeamerica.com/

Here`s their long station list:
https://www.radiofreeamerica.com/stations
it`s in alfabetical order by city, so you may want to do a search on
call letters instead.

Strangely? enough, not a single OK station, nearest being the one from
KS, HPPR (High Plains Public Radio out of Garden City).

I first heard about this from plugs on one of my favorite webcasting
stations, KSFR in Santa Fe. RFA mainly allows access to music shows on
demand for two weeks, but also linx to them when they are live.

This includes many of the best, or most diverse, public, university
and community radio stations. Some of them used to be on my Monitoring
Reminders Calendar, which I had to suspend as just too much work to
maintain. Recommended to explore RFA if you have time to listen to so
much good stuff (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BOTSWANA. 7270, July 29 at 0450, tonal African language, S9/+10
with deep fades, what? Aoki/NDXC shows 04-05 M-F, VOA in Shona for
Zimbabwe. EiBi shows Zimbabwean languages; WRTH shows it`s the Studio
7 service which could also be in English or Ndebele. This is the only
significant broadcast signal now within the traditional 41m band.
Altho legal within Region 1, American hams might prefer VOA avoid it.
India and China also listed on 7270 parts of this hour (Glenn Hauser,

** CUBA. 11880, July 29 at 1419, CRI Plus relay in English back on
proper frequency after stray to 11800 yesterday; now it`s just barely
modulated, e.g. compared to RHC itself on 11760. Mod level jumps up at
1431 for canned boilerplate about Roundtable; I would not have blamed
the studio for mod problems. No plus/minus 10 kHz spurs from 11880
audible now. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1640, July 29 at 1320 UT and still at 1649, dead air
except for some hum from local KZLS Enid. Is no one paying attention
at Chisholm Trail Broadcasting? No storms around here to blame (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1992 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
July 28 at 2130 on WRMI 7780, JBA as usual daytimes on this band.

Also confirmed UT Monday July 29 at 0130 on WRMI 7780, S9+10 and local
line noise is off; also on WRMI 9395 VG S9+20.

Also confirmed UT Monday July 29 at 0230 on WRMI 7780, JBA vs storm
noise from TX panhandle, Wichita areas.

Also confirmed UT Monday July 29 at 0300 sharp on Area 51 webcast; at
0326 check also on WBCQ 5130.35v, and audible on WBCQ 6159.9v, but
can`t tell whether also on 3264.9 JBA carrier. John Carver could tell
in mid-north Indiana: ``Glenn. 3265 is not carrying Area 51
programming tonight. However WOR is on both 5130 and 6160. John``. and
Richard Langley, NB, says 3265 was carrying Pirate Joe`s WHVW
programming when he checked at 0155. For me it was a JBA 3264.9
carrier at 0132. When I checked 6160- earlier at 0046, I could tell it
was JL as well as on Area 51, 5130+. Area 61??

(My local high line noise problem of S9+ between 3.0 and 9.5 MHz has
gone away as of UT Monday July 29 --- unlikely due to any OG&E repair
over the weekend, so apprehensive it may cut on again at any time. If
not, but still pending, will difficultize OG&E finding the source.)

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. (7490), July 28 at 2301 listening to WBCQ webcast for `Le
Show` of Harry Shearer, instead hear frequent drops in modulation, BCQ
IDs inserted, dead air, resume Le Show, etc., etc. Still drops off at
2321, webcast also buffering. I assume the same problems appeared on
the SW transmission.

7490+ itself at 0132 check, I notice that TOMBS is on again tho sked
shows nothing between 01 and 03 UT Mondays after `Encore`, part of
which I enjoyed hearing on mono webcast (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 6159.916, July 29 at 0457, this WBCQ is still on with algo,
S8-S9 but suffering from 6165 RHC music splash; while 5130+ is off by
now after Area 51 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Re WRMI 5850 missing during WORLD OF RADIO, July 28 at 0130,
Bob Biermann explains on the WOR iog in a different response to Walt
Salmaniw noting that 5850 has also been missing at least four times
this year when he has tried to record SW Radiogram at 0800 Sundays:

``Just a couple of notes about the Radiogram. First, as someone
remarked, they would expect "better service" if they were paying for
the program. WRMI airs the RadioGram at NO CHARGE. In addition, the
transmission line for the transmitter on 5850 was damaged by a storm
over the weekend and was only fixed on Sunday morning when there was
daylight. The RadioGram also airs at the same time on 7730.

Operating any Shortwave station is very difficult these days. The
"supply" of technical people that can work on this equipment is
shrinking at an alarming pace. In just a handful of years, it will be
critical for most SW stations around the world. Many senior
engineering staff is at or over retirement age or closing in fast.
Younger people show no interest, and why should they? Today they can
make as much working in IT than in broadcasting. Now, this is simply
my personal opinion and does not represent any station. Personally, I
see a tremendous amount of undue criticism on how many of the SW
stations are run. Some people seem to be experts who have never
operated such a facility. It's not for the faint of heart. The term
"armchair quarterback" comes to mind. Unless you are active in the
business you can't comprehend the challenges you face on a daily
basis. Tube replacement costs are skyrocketing, and certain parts
(like qualified engineers) are often in short supply.

As far as computer glitches, the automation software is highly
reliable, and the computer systems are on massive battery backup. The
program needs to be uploaded to us. If the program is there, it will
air. One of the issues at WRMI is the fact of no decent or reliable
Internet Service providers that can reach or serve us. It is worse
than third world. We are miles from civilization, and I mean miles.
There is no cable or Fiber within 8 miles, just some poorly maintained
copper wire pairs from CenturyLink. We have an over the air backup,
but it's a multi mile hop, subject to frequent problems we can't
control. Many programmers want to stream, but bandwidth is scarce.
Satellite "may" be an option in the future, but there are severe data
limitations making it a poor option at present, and in Florida, rain
fade issues.``

I was surprised at WRMI`s poor internet service, as its streaming of
9955 programming is pretty reliable, and I seldom have any problems
uploading 10+ MB WOR files via ftp to four different Systems taking a
minute or two each (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5830, July 29 at 0455, WTWW-1 is off, nor audible on day
frequency 9475. 5085, WTWW-2 however is on with rock music,
accompanied as always by the weak spurs about 5072.1 and 5097.9.
Unfortunately did not have a chance to check for similar spurs when
9930 was rarely activated (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS updated July 31:
http://www.worldofradio.com/dxpgms.html

Note: latest DX LISTENING DIGEST notice had wrong number as subject,
typo 19-20 instead of 19-30, rest of info including linx, correct

** BRAZIL. 11855.749v, July 29 at 2335, S8-S9 from R. Aparecida always
way off-frequency. 2337 conveniently mentions ``programa Com a Mãe
Aparecida``.

9630.426v, July 30 at 0611, JBA carrier no doubt from another
Apparition, while 11855+ is not audible now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. July 30 circa 1330, no CNR1 WOOB jammers audible; must be
very poor FE propagation.

July 31 at 1338-1342 WOO bandscanning, 9.2 to 17.0 MHz finds only:
11100, JBA Chinese
11440, JBA Chinese
11460, JBA Chinese weaker carrier
14640, Chinese at S9-S6, best by far
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15140, July 30 at 1335, RHC is open carrier/dead air while
15230 is OK nominal. Same situation at 1432 recheck. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15370, July 30 at 2003, S9-S3, RHC Portuguese is Just Barely
Modulated, with hum, while 15140 is S6-S5, JBM seems French.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** INDIA. 7380, July 31 at 0055, 1 kHz tone at S9/+10 but only poor vs
HNL. Aoki/NDXC shows it must be AIR prior to 01-02 Sindhi hour via
Bengaluru. HFCC shows odd power of 400 kW at 300 degrees staring at
0045 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 9690, July 30 at 2215, no signal from REE North American
frequency, at least not missing English since it`s Tuesday. Still well
audible S9+10/20 on ME frequency 12030 backwards, in Spanish
introducing blues music from Chicago! Earlier I heard it going into
Arabic at 2130, ``Huna Madrid``.

9690 had been missing for several days, but reported by Richard
Langley as heard again: July 29 at 2000; and later that same hour by
JRX in Brasil; by RL until 0205* July 30; but missing again July 30 at
his 2048 check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1992 monitoring: confirmed UT Tue July 30 at
0100 on WRMI 7780, fair. Next:

2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955 to SSE

Glenn Hauser logs July 31-August 1-2, 2019

Glenn Hauser
 

** CANADA. 1610, Aug 2 at 0133, YL mixing English with S Asian
language, no doubt CHHA, Toronto, Voces Latinas, in two languages
which are anything but Latin. Four-year-old program grid still comes
up on website

http://chha1610am.ca/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/PostCard-CHHA-1610AM-2016.jpg
claiming Portuguese occupies the M-F 9-10 pm ET hour, but I`ll bet
it`s Punjabi shifted from the 10-11 pm EDT hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer search, August 1 at 1337:
11100, JBA carrier
11150, JBA in Chinese
11440, Chinese S1-S5
11460, Chinese S6-S9

Now from 1342, all audibly in Chinese talk:
12190, S9-S7
12500, S8-S5
12550, S9-S7
12800, S5-S3
12880, S5-S7
14640, S6-S3

14900, JBA carrier --- None WOOB higher up to 16.0 MHz (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, Aug 1 at 0434, RHC English is S9+20 but JBM, suptorted.
Wiggle that patchcord! Only // at this early hour, 6165 is JBM but not
distorted. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** KIRITIMATI. 846, August 1 at 0532, JBA carrier vs storm noise
level, presumed R. Kiribati, 10 kW, rather than anything from Europe
this late where there are only *3* stations on 846 ranging from 0.3 to
1 to 3 kW, in Ireland, Denmark, and Italy.

Just when is sunset at London=Ronton, the main town on Xmas Island? I
normally consult gaisma.com, but it`s wrong! Based on wrong longitude
for this place:

``London, Kiribati - Basic information
Latitude: +1.99 (1°59'24"N)
Longitude: +157.78 (157°46'48"E)
claiming Aug 1 SS at 19:41 local - 12h = 0741 UT

It`s at 157+ WEST, NOT EAST!!! Off by some 46 degrees, which makes all
the other info about it wrong.

Kiribati is a very ``large`` country, widely separated island groups.
Kiritimati is the most easterly, in fact in the western hemisphere,
where it should be east of the Dateline, but to keep the country in
the same day, DL has been pushed eastward. Total population only about
100 K. Yet Kiribati encompasses three timezones, UT +12, 13 and 14,
which only a few other countries in the world can match or exceed (not
including the largest, India and China).

Wikipedia and Geohack present the correct coordinates:
1° 59′ 0″ N, 157° 28′ 30″ W

Now I go to
https://www.timeanddate.com/time/zone/kiribati/kiritimati
where the timezone is shown as UT +14
and the current sunset time at:
https://www.timeanddate.com/sun/kiribati/kiritimati
is 18:41 local - 14h = 0441 UT

Now that makes a lot more sense for 846 kHz being positioned for
nighttime propagation, even an hour earlier than I was hearing it:
not, until two hours later (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 1650, Aug 2 at 0131 UT, 479-area code ad, and
non-ID as ``Life 98-7``, i.e. the puny translator in Fort Smith AR, of
KFSW which is really in Sallisaw OK.

In QRM also a mention of ``The River Valley``, which seems extremely
generic applicable to anywhere, but is a known monicker for eastern
Iowa, i.e. KCNZ Cedar Falls (BTW, what a coincidence that WCNZ is on
the next frequency 1660, in Marco Island FL, presumably unrelated with
widely divergent formats) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 9690, August 2 at 0040, REE North American frequency still
AWOL, while 11940 for S America is still well audible. If one
transmitter is out of order, there are still two more which could be
used weekday evenings for us, after they are finished with the Eastern
Hemisphere at 2200 ---- but that would make too much sense (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1992 monitoring: confirmed Wed July
31 at 2100 on WBCQ 7490.1v, JBA.

NOT confirmed on WRMI 9955, until abrupt *cut-on Wed July 31 at 2100.5
with WOR joined already in progress, poor with Cuban pulse jamming
already. Such are the risks of being the very first program on a given
transmission. Far from synch with WBCQ which is too weak to figure out
the displacement.

Also confirmed UT Thu August 1 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, fair S8-S9+10 but
not overcoming storm noise level (local hi line noise is off at the
moment; but back 24 hours later)

** U S A. 9320-9330, August 2 at 0042, wideband weak whine centered
about 9330, making me wonder if it`s something leaking out of WBCQ-6
Superstation, which has been off the air for further antenna work. On
AWWW last week, AW said it would not resume until late August, but a
twit from him August 1 via Artie Bigley said it would be ``soon``.

Meanwhile via Ivo Ivanov, different frequencies for the World`s Last
Chance Arabic service have been registered with HFCC, effective Aug 5?
at 75 degrees: 12120 at 2000-0857, and 15705 at 0900-1157; the rest of
the day in English on 9330. Apparently someone is not aware that 12120
is occupied by continuous RTTY at least in the daytime. That should be
a fun collision should it ever eventuate.

6160v, Aug 2 at 0050, still nothing from new WBCQ frequency via
``classic`` transmitter ex-9330v. Maybe will be running only on
weekends? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1993, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. Quick MW bandscan at SSS Aug 2 at 0140 UT finds live
anti-Democratic ranting from acting president Drumpf at a rally in
Cincinnati on at least: 840 WHAS Louisville, 890 WLS Chicago, 600
presumed WMT Iowa, and on 760 a station with ``Amen`` interjexions, so
KCCV, a Kansas City Bott rather than WJR Detroit? KCCV is supposed to
cut from 6000 to 200 watts at night, after 0115 UT in August, and
normally we hear only WJR. Loads of major AM stations demean
themselves by spewing far-right hateshows all day, but the above are
worst of the worst. Note, NOT heard on WLW Cincinnati (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5909.5-USB, Aug 2 at 0048, 2-way JBA in English,
American military style, vs HNL; one callsign maybe ``Countdown`` and
a brief digiburst. Lots of autologs in the UDXF iog, including
``5909.5 is one of the freqs of the US COTHEN network`` meaning
Cellular Over-The-Horizon Enforcement Network, first reported in
2010y. What is that all about? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 12025, Aug 2 at 0029, S6-S8 of very distorted modulation
on very rough unstable carrier, not improved by FM tuning. Seems to be
mainly music, like a spur or badly mistuned transmitter, but NOT
matching biggest 25m signals of RHC, REE, or RNA. Maybe Cairo
attempting to resume Latin American service? But imaginarily scheduled
on 9 MHz band now.

Another possibility: Reach Beyond Australia is the only thing sked on
12025 at 0030-0100 in Burmese, partly Rohingya; or jamming? (So would
the Rohingya be less persecuted in Myanmar if they were Christians?)
Recheck on another receiver at 0116, not heard, so could also be
something local (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15400, August 1 at 1348, open carrier at S8, some slow
fading to S4, but off by 1349*. Maybe a tune-up check by Ascension or
Issoudun which radiate later hours on this frequency (Glenn Hauser,

** CHINA. Local line noise level up to S9+20 has been unrelenting,
worst between 3 and 9 MHz, so what little DX there might be on the
summer tropical bands is blotted; ergo I amuse myself by surveying
once again, CNR1 jammers above 9 MHz; never the same assortment from
one day to the next, or even one hour to the next, thanks, presumably
to the unpredictability of Sound of Hope frequency selexions among its
known scores of choices, keeping the Jamming Department at CNR on
their toes. August 2 at 1245 I start hearing CNR1 talk in Chinese,
u.o.s., at a wide variety of levels:

9230, S7-S8
10160, S6-S3
10920, S4-S6
11100, S5-S7
11120, S3-S5
11430, JBA music? else?
11460, S2-S3
11540, S4
11580, S4-S5 vs CCI target
11640, S4-S6 vs CCI target
11785, S5-S6
11825, S6-S8 vs CCI target
12190, S3; now at 1256 with music from CNR1
12880, S2-S3
13070, S3-S5
13150, JBA carrier
13550, S3-S4
13890, timesignal to 1300*
Then no others found up to 16 MHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** NORTHERN MARIANA ISLANDS. 13690.049, August 2 at 1304, sorethumbly
off-frequency carrier while surveying CNR1 jammers before the hour,
now back to measure it in Chinese talk; from VOA this hour only via
SAIPAN, typical inaccuracy (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 2097.3, August 2 at 0620 UT, CW beacon A every ten seconds,
audible despite storm noise level worse than line noise at this
frequency; from anywhere *but* Quartzsite AZ. Again audible same
August 3 at 0353 check. Have not been able to hear the W weather
beacon around 4102+ kHz, however (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 18120-USB, Aug 2 at 1842, at least one hamsig on this band,
tnx to sporadic E, ragchew QSO but can`t hear his contact. Talking
about activity in AM on 7293, mainly by old-timers dying off and using
antique equipment, including him with a 1953 xtal-controlled unit;
finally ID at cambio sounds like W7YM, without fonetix. If so, it`s
Henry G. Laughlin in Lewistown MT.

18140-USB, then I hear another, Aug 2 at 1844, saying temp is a hot
33C = 89F despite his 5,200-foot elevation in north central part of
state implying it`s AZ where Phœnixians escape their heat. Contact
unheard but called Steve, HP9SAM as in Panamá; own call sounds like
KW6J/7; if so, he is from Corona del Mar, CA, Brian C. Stapleton.

Then I check DXmap for Es MUF patches, and find a 17 MHz one above
Flagstaff, but none midway between us (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490.1v, August 3 at 0000, music unseems William Tell
Overture as I try to hear Angela And Allan Weiner WorldWide on WBCQ,
but buried in local hi line noise level. By 0004 I`m on the webcast,
now with W.T.O. but sounds slightly different and runs late until
0005, when it`s The TimTron hosting instead of A&AW. Says now
quadricasting on 3265, 5130, 6160 and 7490 (but if I can`t get 7490,
forget the rest!). He doesn`t have AW`s proper theme music so he found
another W.T.O. performance on YT.

People are wondering about Superstation 9330? It`s not 100% complete
yet, even tho it was on the air for a while. Transmitter is
water-cooled, but additional air conditioning is needed to be
upgraded. Antenna system is not 100% complete either; and not sure how
properly it funxion: so shut down until these questions be answered.

Sounds like he opens a beer -- no, he says it`s cold H2O as doctor
forbids him any alcohol. On the mend from Lyme disease, tapering off
meds.

Glad to be on new 49mb frequency, and reminisces how, long ago, he and
other hams in Massachusetts wanted to play music so did it there
instead of 40m. 0013 music break with a Leon Russell song. 0021 two
belches; imitates how SSB sounds off-tuned plus and minus, as he
prefers AM mode. Is going to tweak the 6160v transmitter for better
power. ``Nifty`` 6160 is better than 5130 until band ``goes long``
when 5130 still holds up over shorter distances.

0032 another W.T.O. version, jazzed up! Ha. 0038 another song break,
``Ring of Fire`` by Social Distortion. [0042 do I feel a quick
earthquake tremor in Enid??] Another song until 0047 outroed as ``See
My Way``. 0049 talking about Tesla coils, belch. 0050 a cough and 7490
webcast stops! Must be delicate connexion there; at first suspected
problem at my end. 0053 I think to try the Area 51 webcast and it is
still running with TTT playing yet another version of W.T.O, from a
video he says is worth seeing. 0056 talking about feeding and adopting
a stray chat [sic]; belch, and SFX, woman talking briefly presumably
Mrs. Tron. Over without an outro or goodbye at 0100. Said he kept
computer off so no e-mail; and no phone calls either.

John Carver also monitored the hour on an axual radio:

``Tonight's show started a bit late this evening on 7490 with TimTron
as the host. He says they are broadcasting on 3265, 5130, 6160 and
7490. He repeats what Allan previously said about the cooling problems
with the new transmitter and the continuing antenna work. He also
states that his Lyme disease seems to be on the run and he is feeling
better and they are cutting his medication back some. Then into some
music.

Some talk about 49 meters and why he prefers AM for ham work. He also
said that in general 6160 was doing better than 5130 at getting out to
people. Evidently he hasn't listened to it from my QTH. Then more
music. Some more talk about 6160. He must really like it. Some talk
about Tesla coils and how he modified one to play music. Then he
played a recording of two Tesla coils playing the William Tell
Overture.

Program was off the air at 0100. Some dead air for a bit on 7490 then
into Brother Stair. A minute or two after that music started and we
had both music and Brother Stair at the same time. John Mid-North
Indiana``.

6160v, Aug 3 at 0131, I manage to detect a JBA carrier from this WBCQ
on the air after nothing for several weekdays, vs local HNL (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9475, August 2 at 1835, no signal from WTWW-1, nor on night
frequency 5830, but could be on below noise level. Let alone 5085
WTWW-2. 31m propagation is OK with audibles: 9395 TOMBS via WRMI; 9265
JBA WINB carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1210, August 3 at 0355 UT, heavy SAH typical of KGYN vs WJNL
as previously measured, this time about 168/minute, or 2.8 Hz;
national commercial, but then ``94.5 WJNL`` ID and back to Jim
Bohannon show live. So 50 kW daytimer in Kingsley MI, Traverse City
market is still cheating as first noted here a sesquimonth ago. 94.5
would be their FM affiliate in Mackinaw City (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Correxion: this should have started with 9320-9340, not
9320-9330; fixed:

9320-9340, August 2 at 0042, wideband weak whine centered about 9330,
making me wonder if it`s something leaking out of WBCQ-6 Superstation,
which has been off the air for further antenna work. On
AWWW last week, AW said it would not resume until late August, but a
twit from him August 1 via Artie Bigley said it would be ``soon``...

** CUBA. 12000, Aug 4 at 1323, RHC is S7 on second harmonic of 6000,
S9+10, but higher one is less noisy during `Sonido Cubano` music.
Altho I`m always interested in harmonix, as long as they don`t QRM
anything, there are still something wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** CUBA. 15140, Aug 4 at 1337, and again at 1437 check, RHC is
extremely suptorted here but OK tho weaker on 15230. Wiggle that

VG this week via Germany, S9+20, with a plug from ``A proud

on the KBC website; finally searched it out for exact spelling. Lots
of stuff there but ham-oriented. Heard the same announcement once or
twice more during following hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** OKLAHOMA. 88.1, Aug 4 at 1339 UT, caught the tail of a KGOU
Manager`s Minute via KWOU Woodward about some KROU upgrade. To website
for text, and while we are at it, a couple previous ones:

https://www.kgou.org/programs/managers-minute

``New Oklahoma City Transmitter Improves Sound
By Dick Pryor • Jul 29, 2019 KGOU --- This is the Manager’s Minute.

We’re pleased to announce installation is complete on the new KROU
transmitter, located on the Spencer/Oklahoma City tower that we lease
from our friends at KFOR Television.

We did this thanks to grant funding from the Anne & Henry Zarrow
Foundation and gifts to Karen’s Legacy Fund, in honor of former KGOU
general manager Karen Holp.

People who listen to KGOU on 105.7 will notice improved audio quality
and a more reliable signal.

The old transmitter, which served us since 1992, is now a backup.

KGOU's "Worldwide Transmitter"
By Dick Pryor • Jul 14, 2019 --- This is the Manager’s Minute.

KGOU broadcasts from five full power transmitters and four
translators, but we also serve listeners through our “worldwide
transmitter”: http://www.kgou.org

On our website, you can find news stories and resources, community
events, streaming audio, weather, the program schedule and information

A New Look and a New Sound • May 6, 2019 Manager's Minute
Listen 0:59 === KGOU has a new look; Morning Edition has a new sound

This is the Manager’s Minute. Consistency is one of the most important
attributes of a successful organization. As broadcasters, we know our
listeners expect us to be consistently good and reliable, but also
willing to innovate and change.

This week NPR’s Morning Edition has a new sound. It’s a fresh take on
the traditional Morning Edition theme - warm, engaging, energetic and
modern. The new theme music was inspired by the work of BJ Leiderman
and is designed to be as engaging and ear-catching as possible to
reflect Morning Edition's dynamic mix of engaging, informative and
often surprising stories about today's world.

Also, we’ve freshened KGOU’s brand image. Our previous logo served us
well for 15 years, but now KGOU has a new look that you'll be seeing
online, on social media, in our newsletters and in our business and
promotional materials.

Designed by KGOU listener J.D. Reeves, our new logo is clean, bold and
smart, with a distinctive shape and the hint of a retro feel.

We think it communicates strength, stability and creativity. And, of
course, it reminds everyone KGOU is still Your NPR Source.

Take a look online and email manager@... to let us know what our
new KGOU logo says to you. Until next time, with the Manager’s Minute,
I’m Dick Pryor.``

Well, I miss the old Morning Edition sound. As for KROU, it`s still
licensed for only 1.6 kW ERP, and impossible in Enid next to local
105.5 translator, not to mention stronger Alva on 105.7; however, we
do get KROU on caradio not too far east or south from Enid, which
remains a larger OKcity with no local public radio signal, unlike many
smaller towns with translators or satellites of KGOU or KUCO. After
expressing some interest in serving 50K Enid, when I greeted him as
new GM, he later said it was not going to happen. So we are stuck with
KOSU only at non-local strength, iffy to receive inside buildings
(Glenn Hauser, Enid, DXLD)

** U K [and non]. 12005, Aug 4 at 1757, VP signal in SW Asian
language, 1800 time pips a few sex late, and more. Aoki shows first
it`s Radio Farda at 1300-1800 via Woofferton; but then BBC in French
via ASCENSION - I did not note any site or language switch, it was so
poor (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1993 monitoring: Not confirmed Sat
August 3 before 1500 on HLR GERMANY, 9485-CUSB via UTwente SDR: as
usual, nothing except huge splash from 9490 Romania. But Alan Gale,
England reports at 1454:

``Hi Glenn, No luck hearing World of Radio on 9485 kHz here again
today, but I decided to check out a few webSDRs and see if I could
find it. Most just showed the loud signal on 9490 with the exception
of this one in Finland, I could hear you on there at 1450 UT, not
great, but definitely recognisable:
http://sdr.vy.fi/

The SDRs to the south, even the ones in Germany, seem to be dominated
by the Romanian station, but thankfully this one at least picks up
something. Alan``

And at 1504: ``Hi Glenn, Thought I'd check out a few more of the
Scandinavian webSDRs; this one is run by OH5AE and has you readable, a
short mp3 is attached. Still lots of splatter, but much better. At
least we know where the signal is going to now:

WOR 1993 confirmed here Sat Aug 3 at 2100 on WRMI 9955, which was on a
few minutes earlier with IS/ID loop, but WOR joined only slightly
late, just in time to hear me say in intro ``1993``; fair.

Also confirmed UT Sun Aug 4 at 0130 on WRMI 5850, VG S9+10/20.

Also confirmed UT Sun Aug 4 at 0340 on WA0RCR, Wentzville MO, 1860-AM,

0317; good S9+10 including noise level. Next:

``Unique Radio off air till further notice due to technical issues ---
Hi, Unique Radio 5045 and 3210 kHz, Gunnedah NSW, will be off air due
to several technical issues. Faults in the antenna and also a fault in

** U S A. 7490.1v, UT Sun Aug 4 at 0023, WBCQ unreadable vs noise
level; also detectable on 6160.1v, but not on 5130.4v vs even higher
NL, so suspect Area 51 is missing unless it`s now Area 61 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395, UT Sun Aug 4 at 0008, S9+20 YL in French on WRMI,
quelle? O, it`s RFPI as now sked this hour, allegedly also on 5950,
both emitting System G. It`s rather puzzling how some European
broadcasters would rather relay via WRMI to N America in non-English,
e.g. also Italians (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. 1160, August 3 at 0612 UT, KSL Salt Lake City is
unusually weak; normally the dominant night signal, as to be expected
for a 50/50 kW U1 = non-direxional clear channel station at only ~800
miles. Now it`s bothered by SAH and some station with Mexican music.
If Unitedstatesian, besides two weak Floridians, per year-old NRC AM
Log (new one soon to be published), that could only be KCTO Cleveland
MO, 230 watts at night direxional. WRTH shows only a single possible
Mexican, 10 kW XEQIN, San Quintín BCN. IRCA Mexican Log says night
power unknown, and four other 1160s have evidently defected to FM.

Getting back to KSL, suspect it is ailing, running low power. Another
check Aug 4 at 0520 UT, music unlikely KSL, but a SAH at 168/minute =
2.8 Hz probably caused by KSL against the otherstation. KSL is
somewhat northerly; attenuated aurorally? Possibly, but similar
latitude altho closer 850 KOA Denver seems normal (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1190, August 3 at 0611 UT, Catholic talk is dominating with
some fades, as usual at night. KDMR Kansas City with EWTN is supposed
to be 500 watts direxional at night, but I suspect may be on 5000 watt
day power, and/or: KDMR night pattern has a notch at 205 degrees, but
we are somewhat beyond that, close to due SW = 225; FCC pattern map
shows major broad lobe centered about 260 degrees

** CUBA. 9580, August 5 at 0135, CRI relay is S9+20/30 but
undermodulated. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba. 9570 Albania
relay is still OFF (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9640, UT Monday August 5 at 0136, RHC `En Contacto` is
starting, undermodulated but sufficient, also on 11760. Arnie opens
with info that the average sunspot number in July was only 0.9.
Recheck at 0145, Pepe Bueno in Spain is concluding his monthly DX
report on behalf of AER, giving the schedule of Radio CANDIP, Congo DR
on 5066! Don`t you believe it. This station has been inactive for at
least two years. He is probably relying on ``A-19`` schedule info in
the June issue of El Dial-E:

``CONGO DEM.REP. Radio CANDIP Bunia: •
0300-0700 5066vBUN 001 kW / non-dir COD French •
1300-1900 5066vBUN 001 kW / non-dir COD French 5066v=5066,4``

Followed there immediately by another imaginary station long-gone:
``DJIBOUTI Radio Djibouti: • 0300-2200 4780 DBT 050 kW / non-dir EaAf
French/Arabic/Afar``

``B-18 schedules of African Stations`` also from AER were quoted in
Rus-DX of 20 January 2019, not only these but obviously(???) deleted
stations: Chad 6165, Malabo 6250, Hargeisa 7120, Uganda 4976 and
4750!

Last real log of CANDIP we had was from ****2017****, DXLD 17-14:

``CONGO DR. Also R. Candip better than before on 5066.4 till just
after 2000, and also stronger than usual (Thorsten Hallmann, Germany,
March 30, dxldyg via DX LISTENING DIGEST)``

I try not to critique fellow DX program presenters despite hearing
erroneous info, but just can`t let this one pass. Some of them I
deliberately do not listen to, so can avoid such conflicts. But:
something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. In last report as I was lamenting KROU/KGOU`s lack of
reception in Enid, you may wonder how then I was quoting it on KWOU:
the cited 88.1 KWOU relay of KGOU via Woodward is extremely marginal,
sometimes audible with a little morning tropo, often barely or blocked
by KMSI Moore; and/or rapid choppy peaks in Doppler fading reflected
via Vance airplane scatter, which are always buzzing over Enid
especially in morning flight training (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DXLD)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1993 monitoring: not confirmed but
presumed still there, Sunday August 4 at 2130 on WRMI 7780, JBA
carrier vs HNL totaling S9+10.

Confirmed UT Monday August 5 at 0130 on WRMI 9955, VG S9+20 following
0129 ID for ``Son-Power Radio from studios of WRMI on 5850, 7455
[abandoned years ago], 9395``. While // 7780 is S9+10 in high noise
level.

Also confirmed UT Monday August 5 at 0258 just in time, the 0230 on
WRMI 7780, very poor.

Also confirmed UT Monday August 5 at 0259 on Area 51 webcast, already
in progress during first item about Andorra [non] so started about 3
minutes early. WBCQ 5130.3v JBA at 0327 check when HRI has already
started; no trace vs HNL now nor earlier this evening of 6160v, unlike
last week.

Also confirmed UT Monday August 5 at 0330 on WRMI 9955, VG S9+10/20,
following some scary music fill at 0328 and soothing music at 0329.

** U S A. 830, August 5 at 0149 UT on E-W longwire, no WCCO, but a
station playing novelty tune, but modulation keeps cutting out, for
variable intervals such as on for 22 seconds, off for 5, on for 24,
off for 8, etc., etc. 0156 UT, ``Happy Trails to You``, barbershop
performance, maybe for a sign-off? No, then ``Fish Heads``, but this
is not Dr. Demento; Of course fades out around hourtop; 0202 UT
another novelty song with cutouts.

On the DX-398 it`s hard to DF, best audible with a slow SAH circa 1 Hz
in WCCO null which is ESE/WNW, but seems to peak a bit CCW from there,
i.e. close to E-W. I don`t see how this could be anything but WUMY
Memphis TN (address in Southaven MS suburb), which last year`s NRC AM
Log shows as: a 3 kW daytimer, but CP for U1 8 kW day, 2 WATTS night,

** U S A. BURT WOLF --- TRAVELS & TRADITIONS is an excellent program,
available here only once a week on OETA, Sundays at 2100-2128 UT. It`s
not just a travelogue but deals with a different subject each week. In
current Season 18, two of particular relevance here:

Short Guide To Cell Phone Safety

Description: Burt takes a quick look at the history of communication
from the cavemen to the alphorn, to the telephone and finally the
cellphone. He traces how the cellphone has changed his work and family
life as he travels around the world. He also tracks down a series of
stories in the United States and Europe that suggests that the
cellphone may not be as safe as most of us thought. He meets with
experts in England, Italy, France and the United States to find out
how we can deal with the problems that are emerging. And finally, Burt
follows an Apple developer's conference where they are working on apps
to limit your use of their own products.

``Radio Curious: Long Form Interviews About Life and Ideas -- Welcome
to the 28th year of Radio Curious, now proudly part of the Library of
Congress, and broadcast weekly on approximately 85 radio stations.

Here you will find over 700 half hour interviews on a curiously wide
array of topics concerning life and ideas. These programs are a gift
to you from Radio Curious host and producer Barry Vogel. He started
Radio Curious in 1991, to expand the work he began in 1974 as an
Attorney, Counselor and Mediator in Ukiah, California, the Mendocino
County seat, located about 110 miles north of San Francisco,
California.

THIS WEEK’S INTERVIEW: My guest in this program is Wesley Swearingen.
Agents at the Federal Bureau of Investigation have a history of
illegal break-ins to homes and offices and conducting wiretaps without
a search warrant. In the years when J. Edgar Hoover was the Director
of the F.B.I., these warrantless break-ins came to be known as
“black-bag jobs”. This archive edition of Radio Curious is a December
1995 interview with Wesley Swearingen a former F.B.I. agent, who in
1995 wrote “FBI Secrets: An Agent’s Expose.”

WOMAN ARRESTED IN CONNECTION TO DEADLY ATTEMPTED COPPER THEFT AT RADIO
TOWER --- Angie West [portrait = mugshot]

SAND SPRINGS, Okla. – A woman was arrested in connection to a
suspected copper theft at a radio station’s transmitter site in
northeast Oklahoma that left one person dead and another in critical
condition.

Just before 10 a.m. Sunday, authorities with the Tulsa County
Sheriff’s Office were called to the KRMG AM transmitter site in Sand
Springs. According to the Tulsa World, an engineer checked on an
interrupted signal and found one man dead with wire pliers in his hand
and another man severely burned, convulsing on the ground.

KRMG reports the injured man was taken to the hospital in critical
condition. Officials have not yet identified the man who died.

The Tulsa World reports 37-year-old Angie West was arrested in
connection to the incident. She reportedly told deputies she had taken
the men to the area to take copper around midnight. She says she fell
asleep in the car and when she woke up, she left. West was arrested
and booked into the Tulsa County jail on a complaint of first-degree
murder.

CMG Tulsa Market Vice President Cathy Gunther released a statement
following the incident.

“Early this morning two individuals broke into the KRMG AM transmitter
site. It appears they attempted to access a building through a conduit
and were electrocuted. One of the individuals is deceased and one was
transported to the hospital. From the tools and materials found at the
site, it appears that they were attempting to steal copper. The safety
of our community is of utmost importance – please do not enter any
transmitter site, for any reason, as the area is extremely dangerous”

** U S A [and non]. Here`s a great example of how regular bandscanning
can pay off: Despite my local high line noise level (which OG&E blames
on Suddenlink sharing the same poles, waiting for Suddenlink to
remedy), Aug 5 at 1906 I`m running thru the 7 MHz band with BFO for
any signal traces, even at a daypart when nothing would be expected
even without the noise --- and there *is* a JBA carrier on 7505, which
has got to be WRNO, far outside its nominal schedule, 01-04 UT
sometimes, and even outside its registered availability between 22 and
16! Fades up a bit with music, gospel, but cuts off abruptly at 1913*,
a test? Back on at *1917:55 with open carrier; At 1925:45 the gospel
music suddenly surges at S9+10, but that is because my HNL has
unexpectedly cut off temporarily. At 1927, 7505 is gone again. Recheck
at 2141, S9+10 HNL is back on and no WRNO.

While the HNL is off I quickly scan the 49mb, at 1925 and find JBA
carriers just where expected at midday from the NAFTA daytime trio:
6185 XEPPM, 6070- CFRX, and 5950 WRMI! (but no 6160v WBCQ)

Furthermore there is a propagation disturbance in progress, making
most of the SW bands almost dead, even above the noise level boundary
worse below 9 MHz: only decent signals circa 1924 being 12160 and
13845 WWCRs; with 9475 WTWW very poor. WWV reported at 1800:

``Solar flux 67 and estimated planetary A-index 4.
The estimated planetary K-index at 1800 UTC on 05 August was 5.
Space weather for the past 24 hours has been minor.
Geomagnetic storms reaching the G1 level occurred.``

Quick check next day Aug 6 at 1837 finds the HNL buzzing of S9 to
S9+10 on most frequencies below 8.8 MHz, with a few gaps (Glenn

NEW TUCSON RADIO VENTURE TARGETS OLDER 'LOST AUDIENCE'
By Cathalena E. Burch Arizona Daily Star Aug 5, 2019 Updated 1 hr
ago

Tucson radio will welcome a new station today that features some
familiar voices.

This morning, 101.7-FM and 830-AM will go live as KDRI The Drive, a
Tucson-focused music and entertainment station targeting listeners
between the ages of 45 to 64.

Owners Fletcher McCusker, Bobby Rich and Jim Arnold say those are the
listeners that have long been neglected not only in Tucson but
nationwide by corporate-owned radio that focuses on the 25-to-40
segment.

“We kind of view them as a lost audience,” said longtime Tucson
business titan and community activist McCusker, the only one among the
trio who doesn’t have an extensive radio or broadcast background.
McCusker’s only foray into radio was a short stint at KWFM — he was
the underground rock station’s first hire — when he was 19 in the late
1960s.

The trio closed last week on the $650,000 purchase of the radio
frequencies that had been home to Christian broadcaster Family Life.
The Drive will play a mix of music from the 1960s through the ’80s and
beyond that they say will appeal to an audience that identifies as
baby boomers, Rich said.

“It’s not classic rock. It’s not golden oldies. But it’s going to be
unique, programmed by Bobby Rich,” McCusker said. “His library right
now is 3,000 songs, so you could literally go weeks without hearing
the same songs.”

When pressed for a clearer definition of the format, Rich would only
say that he planned to “present on The Drive something that
(listeners) will be comfortable with and familiar with and will give
them something that they want, which is information and
entertainment.”

On Thursday, Tucson Radio began playing nonstop novelty songs,
including “Camp Granada” and “Purple People Eater” under the name “The
Worm.” On Monday morning, it switches gears as The Drive with Rich and
Hill Bailey, most recently of KHYT 107.5-FM, in the morning driver’s
seat. . .

religious format, but now replaced.

FCC AM Query already has 830 as KDRI, 50/1 kW, Direxional night only,
ex-KFLT really since 7/31. It had been KFLT more than 33 years.

FCC pattern maps are Not Found! But NRC Pattern Book VIII of 2013
shows it tight toward the SSE, no good here.

I try for KDRI again Aug 6 at 0210 UT before LSS, but hear only a
bigsig from a WCCO SBG on 830 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 880, Aug 6 at 0613 UT, hymns are being heard underneath
JimBo from KRVN Nebraska. First thought would be KHAC, Tse Bonito NM,
the make-the-Navajos-Christian station next to Window Rock AZ, but the
music is on DSB, not USB only as KHAC transmits. Is KLRG Sheridan AR
active or not? Was REL, could be on 220 W night power. It was silent
as of 5/2018 per NRC AM Log published last August. See another
discussion of this situation in DXLD 19-06. At 0630 I hear a jingle
reminding me of REE Spain? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

http://www.worldofradio.com

** AUSTRALIA. 9610, August 7 at 1302, South Asian song W&M duet at
S3-S5, but I bet it`s a gospel huxter trying to ingratiate itself with
victims: Yes, HFCC shows RBA Kununurra, in Tamil this semihour daily,
but don`t you believe it`s that simple. EiBi shows 5 different
languages, depending. First half on Wednesdays is in MALalayam (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA [and non]. 6070-, Aug 7 at 1954 while my noise level has
abated, I again try for the JBA NAFTA midday carriers on 49m, and
there they are: CFRX, as well as 5950 WRMI and 6185 XEPPM (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, Aug 7 from 1346: 10160 Chinese JBA;
10960 JBA carrier; 11120 Chinese JBA; no more WOOBs up to 15 MHz on a
poor propagation morning (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5025, Aug 7 at 1952 UT, line noise level has abated, and I
detect the JBA carrier from Radio Rebelde, but strangely there are
also audible pips at the rate of 40 per minute superimposed. An
artifact around here, or transmitted that way? Something`s frequently
wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, Aug 7 at 0611, RHC English is S9+20 of JB modulation,
better than 6000 which is off; while 6165 is S9 and barely audible vs
high noise level. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15230, Aug 7 at 1354, RHC is S9+10 but suptorted, while //
15140 is OK. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 11769.9, Aug 7 at 2008, S6-S7 of undermod talk from Voice
of Nigeria, yet one of the better signals now on 25m (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. Via Benn Kobb and Mike Cooper, we had advance
notice of this event:

``U.S. Nationwide Emergency Test Today --- In the United States, the
next Nationwide Test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS) is scheduled
for today, Aug 7 2019, at 2:20 p.m. ET.

All radio and TV stations must participate. The test will not be
transmitted via Wireless Emergency Alerts (mobile phones). Moreover,
the test will not be distributed via the Internet so stations will
have to get the originating signals directly by radio from assigned
sources.

These tests tend to expose audio impairments and transmission
glitches, which is why the government keeps scheduling them. Some
stations 'forward' (rebroadcast) the tests immediately, some delay it
and some don't do anything at all, though required by law. Stations
must report their readiness and test results via three FCC forms.

The equipment required to create, obtain and forward EAS alerts is
complex and requires periodic, expensive upgrades. Few manufacturers
produce these devices. Among non-profit community stations, there is a
desire to open-source these products, which would require approval of
FCC and FEMA and, apparently, issuance of cryptographic keys to device
makers.

This is only a test and no action is required of the radio and TV
audience. However, the FCC has stated:

"Members of the public and interested stakeholder organizations that
are in a position to observe test results in their communities can
provide useful feedback on the nationwide test, including any problems
observed or any complications in the delivery of the EAS message
during the nationwide test by reporting their observations to the
Public Safety Support Center at
https://www.fcc.gov/general/public-safety-support-center."``

I set an alarum a few minutes prior to 1820 UT, but I had just started
lunch. I do grab the PL-880 for some quick chex, and indeed the EAS
tones start at 1820 on KOSU 91.7, then switching to AM, also on KGWA
960, VVKigriega 930, KTOK 1000; and KOKP 1020 --- only the last one
has noisy background, but announcement is still readable. And it`s all
over by 1822. How can we do any significant evaluation in such a short
time, especially while lunching? O, yeah, record the entire
AM/FM/TV/cable spectrum and sort it out later. Not me; did anyone,
unofficially? (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 92.1 WBFM, Aug 6 at 2232 UT while futilooking for a
sporadic E opening (later learn that Rob Ross in ON was getting OK), I
notice that KAMG-LP Enid is finally off after having run dead air for
about 3 months after one day of pretend-programming; what a waste,
just to try to block my DX. Well, I hope it`s gone for good (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PANAMA [non]. 9955, Wed August 7 at 1306, DX program in Spanish via
WRMI, and sure sounds like Manolo de la Rosa, who retired from RHC two
or three years ago, soon outro as part 3 of a talk about the Titanic,
but no name given. Would he be mortified to be broadcast now by the
gusana station? The show is `Antena DX`, host Víctor Gutiérrez then
listing its sked on WRMI and WBCQ frequencies without saying which
stations, and I think omitting the very broadcast I am listening to,
if they were cited in time order. On next at 1311 to the AER DX
report, featuring African stations in Congo DR and Guinea Ecuatorial,
once again including R. CANDIP as if it still exist on 5066, and RNGE
Malabo as if it still exist on 6250. He always laboriously spells out
P and E-mail addresses of each station, most of which are in English.
Also DWD on 5905, 6180. Once again he is not named in the outro, so I
won`t either (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1993 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday August 7
at 2100 on WRMI 9955, which was on NLT 2055 with IS & ID loop, but
joining WOR a few sex late, ``---with World of Radio 1993---``.
Earlier thought WBCQ would also be audible, but now the line noise is
blasting again, reducing it to a JBA carrier, but WOR confirmed L&C on
the 7490.18v webcast.

scattershot on this and night frequency 6090, but her website does
present a schedule, much less than the 24/7 in the good ole DGS era:
https://www.pastormelissascott.com/shortwave-schedule.html
and this particular log does fit into it; I have added 24-hour UT to
her confusing am & pm, for which days of week are also confusing:

hour the OSOB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENNG DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 88.3 WBFM, Aug 9 at 1730 UT, `Thru the Bible`` is
starting, today`s reading from the whole thing being Jeremiah 13-16;
starts off about men wearing girdles, then skirts and heels! Hee, hee;
non-robotic voice keeps a straight face?? Don`t listen to whole thing
but retune at 1746 just as wrapping up this segment with Family Radio
ID. So our local satellator K202BY is finally back on the air. I first
noticed it yesterday, but then and now could have been the
non-translator gospel huxter from Wichita with some tropo, and in fact
this one has some fades as I drive around. But now I`ve got the FR ID
out of California. (BTW, 92.1 KAMG-LP is still silent.)

[and non] Fortunately my BST-1 caradio RF feeder on 88.3 still
overcomes K202BY when I turn it on at 1818 UT --- as the memory scan
soon lands on 13670 for another gospel huxter in English (TWBD), this
time all the way from Madagascar World Voice. Aside from the
programming, I still think it`s neat to hear this, mobile in faraway
Enid. Almost exactly 15.8 megameters, or 9.818 kilomiles statute,
8.532 nautical distant. It has to traverse the whole of the African
landmass before exiting from Morocco into the Atlantic. Later in the
hour has faded down considerably. We may soon know whether in B-19
HFCC, they reascend to the 17 MHz band. The B19 HFCC/ASBU Coordination
Conference will be held from 26 to 30 August 2019 in Argentina (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. Electronic billboard on the NE corner of Garriott &
Garland in front of the new JiffyTrip about to open in Enid (which
replaced a worm-infested pecan grove; sad!), flashes ``Rush will soon
be on Enid FM Radio``, and the same for ``Sean``, August 9. I can`t
read it all as I am in motion, but this surely refer to the 100.9 CP
translator K265FL [Fully Loony] for KGWA which is already airing their
rubbish on AM 960. No, 100.9 is not on quite yet. I cannot hardly
wait. This will of course also difficultize if not block reception of
100.7 from Ponca City, and 101.1 from Stillwater & Woodward. KGWA`s
original FM sibling, 103.1 KOFM, has been spurring or overloading down
to this area too (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. I have been discussing KROU`s new 105.7 transmitter from
Spencer/OKC with KGOU+ CE Patrick Roberts, Aug 9:

I`m glad you got a new transmitter for KROU; no doubt it was needed,
not that it will do us any good in Enid with that translator on 105.5,
not to mention Alva on 105.7.

But KROU ERP remains only 1.6 kW, right? As per FCC. Is that the legal
limit for this facility, or how high could you go if cost did not
matter?

I just had another look at the panel photo of the new transmitter:
https://www.kgou.org/post/new-oklahoma-city-transmitter-improves-sound
TPO 30 watts??? That would be the exciter? What is the full TPO? Must
be under 1 kW for an ERP of only 1.6 kW --- so hard to imagine (for me
not in the business) how the new transmitter of a few hundred watts
cost as much as it did, even at a bargain?

``Hi Glenn. The unit with 30w on the display is the exciter, on top.
The transmitter is 4600w. Our antenna is effectively a 1 bay (level),
four-sided panel at 640 ft. 1600 watts effective radiated power. The
new transmitter system is capable of 5000 watts. Thanks. Patrick
Roberts``

Patrick, Thanks for explaining. I did not realize that the ERP could
be less than the transmitter power -- negative gain apparently with
that kind of antenna. Glenn

``No problem. Karen [Holp, former GM] and I bought the panel to give
the most consistent coverage we could, squeezing all we could out of
the “new site” when we moved to [KFOR tower, virtual channel] 4 $$$$$.
It really did clean it up. We used to have a 3-bay to this baby panel
at the [KAUT virtual channel] 43 tower. It was producing a messy
signal, side-mounted on that tower. Yeah... 4.6 in and 1.6 out. At our
power level erp-wise, strangely, a “1 bay” lit up is the best option.
There’s NO nulls under it in the first several miles like the gain
antennas produce. No need for null fill because there are no nulls
from multiple bays. No tower shadowing because this beast custom-wraps
around the massive 4 tower. At 640 ft, there’s not much more terrain
shadowing vs. 300 on the 43 tower which had a ton of it. KFOR was
going to charge the same anyway. I took the height :) Negative gain
systems are an odd thing in a way, but they are a bit of a legal
ability to push the envelop as much as we could. It did extend the
reach as a byproduct of raising height too. You know how it goes in
pub radio. We get one chance to do it right. Thanks! Patrick Roberts``
(Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 36, Aug 9 at 1505 UT, from OKC, KUOK-CD briefly
decodes enough to enable the PSIP ID, then breaks up. Presumably the
same Univisión programming as on a subchannel of full-power RF 29 KTUZ
Shawnee, which displays as 36. Hepburn tropo map shows level-1 minor
tropo enhancement between here and OKC. (Enid is almost always on the
margins or beyond tropo areas --- but wait for next Tuesday!).
W9WI.com lists 7.33 kW, CP for 15. Anything else unusual?

RF 21, KUOT OKC is *much* stronger and in solid with subchannels
1-2-3-4-5, including 3ABN, but KUOT is the PSIP ID on all of them.
W9WI.com show it`s 15 kW, really KUOT-CD, without any subchannel info.
NOT to be confused, as I almost did with another RF 21 listed for OKC,
KTOU, 4 kW with 6 subchannels. There are also Bad signal bars on 20
and 22. In fact rabbitears.info shows KTOU-LD is now on 22 virtually
and really, not 21. 20 could be KQCW-DT Muskogee, which seems to be
the most-often seen from Tulsa market. Ultimately repacked, the only
UHF channels unoccupied in OKC Market #50 will be 17, 20, 28, 34

** U S A. 15555-USB, Aug 9 at 1357, gospel huxter is readable in
English at S3-S4. WJHR, Milton FL is so rarely audible that it needs
to be logged for the record. Is it sporadic on air, or sporadically
propagating with its paltry incredible 250 watts, run at 1 kW PEP, per
WRTH rather than the legal minimum of 50 kW for FCC-licensed SWBC
stations? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. (7490), Aug 10 at 0054, I tune in WBCQ webcast toward the
end of `AAAWWW` when he usually gets down to business with info about
the Superstation, etc. He`s already talking about it with a caller, so
I did not get it all, just: the power supply modules in the modulator
keep popping off; it`s a design issue which has been there since
installation. When it runs, it runs beautifully. Need spare modules;
in fact, NO spare parts have been supplied tho he has been asking for
them for months! This manufacturer [Continental] is not like RCA or
Gates which used to be eager to help. Nobody cares any more. Also says
they have ``lost the prime manufacturer of antenna`` --- what??
Ampegon?
I am not sure this be relevant, but searching on Ampegon bankruptcy:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transradio
Ampegon took over Transradio a couple years ago. Transradio was
successor to Telefunken.

Allan says he is confident things will work out in the end. But could
the superstation become a white elephant? Who would be left holding
the bag, World`s Last Chance, or WBCQ?

Call from John, the VORW, says he is hearing WBCQ on both 6160 and
9330 now. Just in time for this report, here`s John Carver`s summary:

``Tonight's show started on time on 7490. Allan and Angela in the
studio. Allan is feeling used and abused this evening. A rambling
dialog trying to illustrate his disgust with things. First phone call
at 0015 from Freddie. Mr. Mike calls at 0026 with information of two
upcoming hamfests.

Allan says they're still having problems getting the antenna adjusted.
Says the company has gone bankrupt and they can't get manuals,
blueprints, tech information or spare parts. Said it's difficult to
program the antenna for all the frequency changes without a manual. He
says that there are also problems with the power modules on the new
transmitter and the company is dragging its feet getting back to them
with information or new parts. Allan blames the problems on everything
on the antenna and transmitter being controlled by computers and not
having access to programming info. The German company that bought out
part of the antenna company will not honor the warranty on the antenna
so the station has to pay for any assistance and at the moment they're
not getting any assistance.

Allan says that 7490 is running on very low power, as something in the
transmitter melted about 3 this afternoon and he can't tear into it
till tomorrow. Phone call at 0045. Caller says he is an engineer and
is working on a new shortwave station and has been affected by the
recent bankruptcy and was trying to pump Allan for information about
it. He stated that the new station was still in the future and he
didn't feel comfortable releasing any information about it.

Reading of emails at 0057. Allan also mentioned that they had set
another transmitter to broadcast on 9330 and were using it from time
to time but no details on when or what. Closing prayer at 0102. Show
was off the air at 0108 and 7490 went into Brother Stair in progress.

** U S A. 1160, Aug 9 at 0241 UT, further chex of KSL SLC, which has
been unusually weak lately: now it`s sufficient, but a SAH of
156/minute = 2.6 Hz, on the R75; rather different on the DX-398,
easily nulling KSL increasing QRM from music, Spanish. At 0317 the QRM
is worse, Spanish music overcoming at times. Nothing from UT to
compare it with, but 850 KOA Denver is also poor, when it could/should
be good. I hear from people at KSL that things seem OK there, running
full 50 kW from the Nautel, but they are looking into it (Glenn

** U S A. 9395, UT Sun Aug 11 at 0130, I remember to check WRMI for
the Mason Vye show which started a week before at 0100-0200, and
supposed to be fortnightly; but what would WRMI program alternate
weeks interveningly? Suspected would just play back first Vye show,
and indeed they do. But first as I tune in, the Radio Tirana IS, as
should be heard here like five other days of week; but instead of RT
programming, 0131 cut to unID rock music. Poor reception on the
ATS-909 by the computer and TVs, but check again at 0142, guy is
giving a Canadian postal code ending in 1A0, and a .ca address. 0159,
ID for WQNA Springfield, and then the full Ontario address ending with
N0N 1A0 fonetikaly; before 0200 switching to Radio Prague IS and
English.

Mason Vye had notified me earlier:

``New program on WRMI --- I host a music-oriented program on student
and community radio stations WQNA Springfield, IL and WTND-LP Macomb,
IL and plan to simulcast an hour on WRMI’s 9395 kHz signal beginning
Saturday, August 3rd at 2100 ET (0100 UT Sunday) and again in a
fortnight on August 17th. My program originates from Alvinston,
Ontario, Canada and features a mixture of popular music with emphasis
on Canadian artists. North American satellite TVRO listeners may
remember me from the defunct W0KIE network. Regards, Mason Vye, Aug 2,
WORLD OF RADIO 1994, DX LISTENING DIGEST)``

I missed the first one, but saw him already on the WRMI sked grid with
his name as the program title. Too bad this bumps off Radio Tirana,
but they never asked to be on WRMI anyway, and are already pre-empted
on UT Thursdays for `This Is A Music Show`.

Then August 9, he writes me again: ``WQNA FM is ending after 40 years
in Springfield, Illinois. The Capital Area Career Center has put the
station up for sale due to rising operating costs and declining
student enrollment in the Radio-TV program. Until a buyer is found,
WQNA will continue to operate with its volunteer staff. Regards, Mason

UNIDENTIFIED. 11702-11704, Aug 11 at 1343, intermittent SSB talk

circa 3901, where nothing is audible vs high line noise level; and
probably not propagating anyway on the fundamental unlike the harmonic
