** CRIMEA. Re RCV on 5916-CW, derivation of ``-opol'`` place names,
Jimmy James answers: ``"-opol" ending means "city" --- it is from the
Greek "polis". That's because those cities on the border of the Black
Sea in Crimea area were founded by ancient Greeks. (same as
"Constantinople" = the city of Constantin ([emperor)). Thx.``

And from Arthur Pozner: ``Just about all Crimean and many other Black
Sea towns used to be ancient Greek colonies long ago. Modern names
were given during the Russian expansion after a series of wars with
the Ottoman Empire: Sebasto-polis. Simfero-polis etc. Even some cities
in Ukraine have a similar history. Melitopol, Ternopol, Mariupol,
Nikopol and others.`` --- I should have thought of that (Glenn Hauser,

First broadcasts confirmed UT Friday February 26 at 0130 on WRMIs, hot
off the press uploaded to System F server with minutes to spare: 5850
VG direct; 7780 unusually inaudible at UTwente SDR - K index 3, SF 80;
but making it very well as far as Maine Kiwi, S9+10 (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** U S A. 1509.84, Feb 26 at 0307 UT, no signal, no het against
1510.00 stations from KCTE Independence MO, 10 kW daytimer either off
the air or not off-frequency; mainly hear a classic rocker mixing with
a talker, one of them at 0359 recheck being Nashville`s WLAC with
diminished power. To be sure, I check the same and only Kansas City
Kiwi where I confirmed KCTE overtime and underfrequency two nights
ago, and yes, no sign of it now there either.

Did Union Broadcasting get religion, fix it forever following the
negative publicity I gave them about their flaws being so obvious not
only to Oklahoma, but Scandinavia? Chat fance. QRX for resumption of
decade+long, if sporadic escapes from required parameters. Also I
mention on this week`s WOR 2075. At least, KGBC Galveston is still
LAHing below 1540. And I bet KCTE still be askew in the otherwise
legal daytime. Licensed SR/SS span in February: 1315-2400 UT; March:
1230-2430 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
