** U S A. My first sporadic E FM DX opening of the season/year, May 2,
all times UT!! interrupts my listening to `Feminine Fusion` at
2105-2205 on 90.1 KUCO, on the DX-390. Normally the only weaker QRM is
KHCC Radio Kansas, Hutchinson, but:

2140, 90.1, ``South Carolina Public Radio``, could be program credit
on some other P.R. station; but has Es fading. With KUCO nulled as
much as possible I am also getting KHCC vs this one, KHCC with
`Thistle & Shamrock` which comes from NC, not SC. Also an NPR news
break which would not be during T&S. It so happens there are two SCPRs
on 90.1, Greenville in the NW corner and Conway in the E corner, as
researched later in the WTFDA FM Database, inserting those listings
with each possible log:

WHMC-FM 90.1 CONWAY SC NEWS/TALK SOUTH CAROLINA PUBLIC RADIO 63.0
213.0 33-56-58 79-06-31 FFFF WHMC - Public [1076 mi] [OR:]
WEPR 90.1 GREENVILLE SC NEWS/TALK/CLASSICAL SOUTH CAROLINA PUBLIC
RADIO 84.0 361.0 34-56-29 82-24-38 A6CF WEPR 90.1 SC Public Radio News
Music News [875 mi]

Most of our non-comm FM channels are blocked or semi-blocked, so I
hope the MUF is going above 92 and start hunting on the DX-398 I also
have at hand, with whip antenna only constantly being manipulated.
There are lots of OK & KS fringe stations on ``open`` channels which
have to be recognized, minimized or avoided.

As FM Es continues during the next hour, 22-23 UT, I also have to miss
`Uncle Bill`s Melting Pot` on WBCQ with Mongolian throat-singing which
I was really looking forward to; and there is no way to hear it later
--- except the first half repeat Monday at 2300-2330.

2146: 92.1, C&W music, ID as ``--- 92``, Es fading; 2159 almost time
for ID when a YL gospel huxter overrides, but I do get a partial ID of
W,P,H at 2200, and Fox ``news``. 2202 the g.h. QRMer says it`s still
April as she starts preaching about Fools, especially males you may be
married to. The C&W one is certainly:

WPEH-FM 92.1 LOUISVILLE GA COUNTRY THE PEACH 6.0 91.0 33-00-48
82-23-33 // WPEH-1420 [908 mi]
as it`s the only 92.1 country in SC or GA. What about a nearby g.h.?
Maybe this, the only religious teaching in English on 92.1 in GA:

WHHR 92.1 VIENNA GA RELIGIOUS TEACHING FREEDOM RADIO FM 5.1 106.0
32-09-16 83-47-55 [856 mi]

2203: 93.1, YL in London sends her love; rocker? Have to watch out for
Pratt KS semi. Not the ESPN one below.

2205: 92.7, strong rock, soon fades. Only two full power in GA:

WKKZ 92.7 DUBLIN GA HOT AC 92.7 WKKZ 50.0 127.0 32-31-21 82-54-00
WSSI 92.7 DARIEN GA CLASSIC HITS 92.7 SSI 10.0 123.0 31-11-40 81-29-30
[892, 1003 mi]

2209: 90.3, finally one with RDS, which is pretty finicky even with
strong signals many of which do not employ it. The thing is, I get a
readout lock only when tuned to 90.2! between two Okies: UNIVERSITY /
SAVANNAH / WHCJ, and a jazz DJ:

WHCJ 90.3 SAVANNAH GA VARIETY THE VOICE OF SAVANNAH STATE UNIVERSITY
6.0 68.0 32-01-28 81-03-23 6761 WHCJ Savannah State University WHCJ
Savannah State University No Program Type or Undefined [1003 mi]

2212: 93.1, plug ESPN podcasts, ESPN Radio, ESPN plus, ESPN daily. I
think it may be an ESPN affiliate. 2228: sports talk again with hum:

WWKM 93.1 ROCHELLE GA SPORTS MIDDLE GEORGIA'S ESPN 4.7 81.0 31-56-54
83-26-02 // WWKM 93.1, WXKO-1150 // W226BZ 103.1 [879 mi]

WWKM also has a co-channel translator BTW:

W226BZ WXKO 1150 93.1 MACON GA SPORTS MIDDLE GEORGIA`S ESPN 0.0 0.12
0.0 206.0 32-45-13 83-33-46 // WWKM 93.1, WXKO-1150 // W226BZ 103.1
[all the others in this report except 101.5 have same H & V kW,
meters, so duplications removed]

2217: 93.1, vs WWKM: ``E-93 FM.com`` promo, and for plasma; 2218 ``AT
40`` mentions, as in American Top-40 program:

WEAS-FM 93.1 SPRINGFIELD GA URBAN CONTEMPORARY E-93 96.64 299.0
32-02-45 81-20-27 5F4A WEAS Song / Artist Rhythm and Blues [983
mi]

2219: 93.3, ``The Joy FM``, so gospel, fade to C&W, Okie?

WVFJ-FM 93.3 GREENVILLE GA CONTEMPORARY CHRISTIAN THE JOY FM NETWORK
38.0 491.0 33-05-10 84-46-10 8CA7 [782 mi]

2231: 93.7, music occasionally overrides KSPI Stillwater OK which is
in a live silly baseball game. With GA still the PTA, most likely
this, the only full power 93.7 rocker:
WPEZ 93.7 JEFFERSONVILLE GA ADULT CONTEMPORARY Z 93.7 100.0 207.0
32-45-12 83-33-46 [865 mi]

2234: 92.1, ad for wiregrass.edu, a tech school; 279-896-7679 maybe
for next ad, ``Talk 92.1``, so it`s this, as Adel is just N of I-75
from Wiregrass main campus Valdosta:

WDDQ 92.1 ADEL GA TALK TALK 92.1 2.6 154.1 31-08-15 83-23-41 //
WSFB-1490 [905 mi]
WDDQ interrupted by music in Spanish, probably already WJXR as below.

2237: 95.1, RDS with song titles, ``FRIEND / KELLY BL/ ACKBEAR``; 2239
YL DJ ID ``95.1 WAPE, Jaxonvil`s #1 music station``:

WAPE-FM 95.1 JACKSONVILLE FL HD CONTEMPORARY HIT RADIO THE BIG APE

2240: 96.5 music in Spanish probably WOEX as below

2241: 101.5, a local note: constant RDS only as KOCD. Spanglish ID as
``Salvación Radio Network``, 405-AC phone

KOCD KWDW-LP 101.5 OKEENE OK Spanish RELIGIOUS RADIO SALVACIÓN 14.0

2242: 104.5, financial talk over Woodward, Okie, likely this as skip
has shifted into north FL:

WOKV-FM 104.5 ATLANTIC BEACH FL HD NEWS/TALK NEWS 104.5 WOKV 98.8
309.0 30-16-34 81-33-53 7AB9 104.5 WOKV, JACKSONVILLE'S NEWS TALK
104.5 104.5 WOKV Jacksonville's News and Talk News [1037 mi]

2244: 105.9, two stations mixing, talk and music: probably:

2247: 92.1, romantic music in Spanish, IDs for 3 stations, mentions
MacClenny 92.1, an AM 1160 and an FM translator; `` Latina, tu
musica``; another ID for WJXR, W248-- 97.5 in Callahan and 1160 in
Callahan:

WJXR 92.1 MACCLENNY FL Spanish TROPICAL LATINA 92.1 25.0 100.0

2258: 96.5, Spanish romantic music, partial RDS: ``OLVIDES / MUSICA
Y``, 2300 ``Exitos 96.5``, ``palabra clave: amor``:

I keep tuning until 2318 but the opening seems over. Finally checking
6M DXMAP at 2335, MUFs are just below 88 at 83, 84 MHz. But still at
0145 May 3, plenty of Es <88 MHz over E and W USA.

Note: I do not count stations, states, or anything, so whether or not
a log be 100% definite does not matter; I have merely done my best to
research available info, to report as fully as possible what happened
