Thompson is at/near the end of the road in north central MB, beyond
The Pas and Flin Flon, 2152 km = 1337 statute miles, almost due north
from Enid.

Also two other Canadians, only Manitobans tonight; if any Canadian,
can make it best vs storm noise levels, it`s WG:

It`s the Swahili hour of CRI via Bamako II, MALI; followed by another

nothing but African music (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K [non]. 9615, May 2 at 1721, S5-S7 in Korean, then some English

** U S A. 5970, May 2 at 0558, WEWN Spanish, RCM, is missing (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 12160, Sun May 2 at 1709, no signal from WWCR-2, altho the
other three are audible, the uppers with a bit of sporadic E: 15825,
13845 and 9980. 12160 is supposed to start at 1500 after 7490, which
is not on now either. 12050 WEWN is poorly audible at similar
megameter distance.

It so happens that per the April 1 program sked, Sun 17-18 on 12160 is
supposed to carry The Overcomer. I wonder if that have expired and so
turned off the transmitter rather than fill with something else.

Reminds me, I have been intending to quote the following, as all kinds
of contradictory info has been coming out about whether or how far in
advance TOM is paid up at various stations:

``[WOR] Glitch at WRMI? Apr 25 at 5:16 AM --- Both 5850 and 5950 had
dead air at 0507 tune in, but a few seconds later, there was an
announcement from the Overcomer Ministry that the programs were paid
up until October, and what happens after that is solely dependent on
funding. Dead air again at 0509 and still so at 0516 UTC. Dead air
continued until 0541:58 when Overcomer resumed. 73, Walt Salmaniw,
Victoria BC`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
