(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO [non]. 1090, July 24 at 0601 UT, KAAY Little Rock no longer
dead air but filling the news hole with a string of PSAs for suicide,
MS, veterans, etc., etc. So our fun is over for now, but worth
periodic rechecking, also at other hourtops. Even nulled not getting
much of anything from XEAU tonight. IRCA Mexican Log editor Tim Hall
replies to my previous report:

``Reports coming out of Monterrey in recent months (on some Mexican
radio groups I belong to on Facebook) have said that XEAU has been
jumping back and forth between "FM Tu" //XHFMTU-103.7 and "Milenio
Radio"/"Milenio Noticias." There is speculation that they are just
about ready to turn off the AM. In my annual Border Inn sessions (last
October, a couple months after the deadline for the Mex Log) they were
indeed using Milenio Radio slogan. 73 Tim``

Could it be gone for good? I thought AMs were more likely to survive
in major cities where FM bands are full (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.9, July 24 at 0550, VON is already on S9+10/20,
prélude of drumming and singing, nice (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330, July 24 at 1339 & 1509, no signal from WLCR via
WBCQ-6; is the schedule deliberately less than 24/7 now, or random
breakdowns/maintenance periods? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 17775-, July 24 at 1410, KVOH is on and propagating at S9+10
but dead air except for some hum; or is there a trace of JBM? (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 670, July 24 at 0619 UT check, NO IBOC noise from WSCR
Chicago infesting 657 & 683 kHz, and may this ever be so (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1680+, July 24 at 0558 UT, fast SAH as before between KRJO
Monroe LA to the SE and presumed WPRR Ada MI to the NE, no longer open
carrier but playing different musix, new format ``The Ride`` as
reported by Jack Amelar quoted in last report. Surely a call change
will be forthcoming as no longer Public Reality Radio (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search, July 23 at
1122-1130: I haven`t done this since March 13 once DST was in effect,
as I dearly want to sleep past sunrise, staying awake usually until
0630 or so UT. But I happen to awaken today at 1120 so I risk making a
check. There might well have been many more instances even in deep
spring/summer had I searched. Sometimes I use the DX-398 with internal
ferrite, which allows DFing whether signals be from Asia to the NW or
Pacific WSW, but this time it`s the R75 for greater gain but E-W
longwire, so no DFing. Usually both preamps are off to minimize
overloading, but this time I need at least #1 to get enough signals to
detect, by 9-kHz step tuning USB at 1 kHz below the channels to hear
tell-tale 1 kHz hets. LSR today is 1132 UT, and if any on the low end,
have already outfaded. The rest are just this side of
imagination-level, and are typical from Pacific rather than Asia,
altho some could be either:

738, 774, 828, 837, 855, 882, 936(2 beating), 1017, 1098, 1152, 1161,
1314, 1566? 936 pair are intriguing: no higher powers than two 10 kW
eastern Aussies, and a 1 kW NZer. East Asia has 200 kW from China, 50
from Thailand.

I don`t get back to sleep by 1200, but keep trying and maybe get a few
winx past 1300. It shall be another 5 weeks before our SR laten to
1200 when some NHK timepips might audiblize like in March, but that
will still be 7 am CDT while I want to keep sleeping (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)
