WORLD OF RADIO HITLIST UPDATE

Hi Glenn, My latest Hitlist update.
http://www.w4uvh.net/hitlist.htm

1) Germany - Channel 292: Added direct link for programming on
frequency of 3955 kHz
2) Madagascar - Madagascar World Voice: Added link for African
Pathways as part of MWV entry
3) South Sudan - Eye R: Updated link to Live stream
4) Spain - REE: Updated link to frequency page for A-20 schedule
5) UK - BBC WS: removed links to "Global Beats"; added links to "This
is Africa" and "Music Life"

Unless there's a major change anywhere, the next update will be late
July. Best wishes and 73, Alan Roe

** CUBA. 13820, July 1 at 1402, noise jammer grinding away vs nothing,
since that`s a B-season-only Radio Martí frequency, instead on 13605
now, also heavily jammed. Something`s always incompetent and excessive
at the DentroCuban Jamming Command (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KOREA NORTH. 13760.201, July 1 at 1403, VOK way off-frequency, JBA
talk in unID language. Much weaker 13650 is on 13649.964. The other
ones closer to nominal but unmeasured: 11735, 11710-strongest, 9435
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 1270, June 30 daytime I can`t get enough signal from KRXO
Claremore/Tulsa; UT July 1 at 0158 now some skywave helps as I hear
Spanish, ``tu música`` and indeed music right across 0200 hourtop;
0202 ID mentions ``107.9 FM y 1270 AM``; 0510 UT recheck I again hear
``107.9``. Plenty of QRM but this station is generally atop on my E-W
longwire. More music across 0600, until 0603 full ID, the first few
words pronounced sorta English, ``KRXO, Claremore-Tulsa, 1270 AM y
107.9 FM ---- nueva frecuencia``.

I was checking it out after seeing this in Bill Hale`s FM News column
in July WTFDA VHF-UHF Digest:

``OK Oklahoma City 107.9 KRXO-FM Spanish CHR: ‘Ritmo 107.9’``

That can`t be right, as the real full-power KRXO-FM is still on 107.7
in OKC, with stupid sports talk, in English; certainly no room for
another, one channel up! Same owner Tyler Media does have a 107.9
translator in Tulsa of KRXO (AM) 1270; and a CP to move it to nearby
Broken Arrow, per FCC FM Query. However, WTFDA FM Database shows
K300CY, the 107.9 in Broken Arrow is Spanish CHR, Ritmo 107.9,
relaying KRXO 1270.

1270 must be a recent flip, not sure when; believe I still had 1270 in
English sports talk early in June. Radio-locator.com still has it
sports, ``The Franchise``. Site is between Owasso and Claremore, NE of
Tulsa, but plenty coverage of entire metro. 5 kW day pattern does have
a notch toward Enid; 1 kW night pattern less of a notch. Why move the
FM to Broken Arrow, SE of Tulsa? Census data indicates most Hispanic
neighborhoods are in central Tulsa. Maybe it`s going up on a
high-tower antenna farm.

Radio.locator.com coverage map for ``K300CY-FM`` [sic] shows from east
side of Tulsa near ``New Tulsa``, local contour not reaching all of
Tulsa but the distant one does (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2040 monitoring: confirmed the Wednesday July
1 at 2100+ on WBCQ 7490v, good at a Rochester NY SDR checked at 2121,
while poor at Alexandria VA, and JBA here so I could not be positive
it were I speaking. Next:

0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

Next WOR 2041 should be ready by early UT Friday July 3 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9395, July 1 at 1417, this WRMI-6 is off, no signal, while
9455 WRMI-8 with TOMBS on same parameters is S9+10. Recheck at 1836,
9395 is back on (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7315, WHRI, not multi-squealy at 0100 June 30, OK with VOV
relay, unlike 24 hours earlier (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9980, July 1 at 1830, WWCR-4 is still AWOL; crashed?
Outdated June 1 program schedules still display (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11600-11300, July 1 at 1407-1416, looking for CNR1
jammers, hear a big wideband buzz slowly drifting downward, ionosonde?
Seemed steady but really slowing down, as I time approximate intervals
between crossings:
11450-11400: 55 seconds
11400-11350: 80 seconds
11350-11300: 205 seconds
And it`s just about stalled around 11300, 55 seconds later
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
