** NORTH AMERICA. Let`s try again on linx to the pirate QSLs: I gave
the wrong URL to my QSL page, should be:

From there you may click on the last two, #94 and #95. Direct link may
also appear broken; it`s asking for trouble to make an URL with blank
spaces in it: – TCOTM eQSL – Hauser.jpg
so I have changed that to:

Here are the complete items reworked:

** U S A. 1680+, July 20 at 0612 UT, dead air open carrier looping
NE/SW, vs C&W from KRJO Monroe LA to the SE. I figure it`s probably
WPRR Ada MI, which recently went ``off`` the air. I didn`t normally
get WPRR well enough to listen to, KRJO dominant. These make fast SAH
against each other, the NE one on the upper side. MWoffsets shows:

``1680 1680.0106 KRJO (Monroe, LA) [1679.9930-] 24h 2020-02-13
1680 1680.0167 WPRR (Ada, MI) [1680.0137-1680.02] 2019-11-08
unstable, swinging from 1680.018 to 1680.022``

But I would say this time they were at least 20 Hz = .020 apart.

I asked Michiganders about this:

``Hi Harold & Kenneth, Last night at 0612+ UT I had an open carrier on
1680 looping NE/SW, vs Monroe to the SE, and the NE one was slightly
higher in frequency, making fast SAH. I figure it was probably WPRR
transmitter. Could you check out whether it`s on the air with OC?

Kenneth Vito Zichi replies quickly:

``I would guess your assumption about the open carrier is correct.
Jack Amelar in Lowell (near Grand Rapids and in a far better location
to tell than either Harold or I) sent an email on Friday:

"Tonight, 1680 is on with dead carrier. I can barely hear WTTM(p)
under. Tuned into dead carrier at 0015 July 18. At oo26 "Hood" music
pops in, heard an ID 88.? The Ride, back to Hood Music. at 0037 dead
carrier again and still dead at 0140.

And FWIW, somewhat related article "Goodrich Quality Theaters will
reopen after being bought out of bankruptcy"
