** CUBA. 13634 & 13766 approx., Nov 30 at 1526, RHC 13700 is putting
out these not very strong spurblobs on FM/AM/F#, none audible beyond.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** NORTHERN MARIANA ISLANDS. 9905.030, Nov 30 at 1609, S4-S5 Chinese
talk so I bet it`s SAIPAN, well-known for frequency laxness. Yes,
exactly, this hour only on weekends, Radio Free Asia (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. I hardly need antennaweb to show me which TV stations I
can pick up, but I decided to find out what they would say:

Ha ha, that is the only ``local`` signal (altho it claims to be on
channel 41 in faraway Ardmore); but Enid easily watches TV channels
from OKC with outside/rooftop antennas, or even carefully positioned
rabbit ears, distance roughly 65 miles. What do they know? If aim of
this site be to sell antennas, they are failing miserably. Seems to be
part of titantv listings (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 91.7, Nov 30, time not noted, one of the constantly
repeating promos for KOSU financial support mentions that, ahem, all
things considered, it costs $285 per hour for KOSU to operate. One
seldom hears such a figure from public -- or any -- radio stations, so
I wonder how it compare to others; and exactly how they computed it.
Presumably includes opcosts for relays KOSN, KOSR, translators (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U A E. 11655.116, Nov 30 at 1603, VP talk way off-frequency. Of
course, scheduled here at 1600-1630 only is IBRA Radio/Radio Ibrahim,
in Afar via dha where something is always wrong with their frequencies
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2010 monitoring: almost confirmed Saturday
November 30 at 2050 the 2030v on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO. I do
have a JBA signal with talk rather like my ``monotone``, but blocked
by heavy local line noise which still infests this part of the
spectrum. Next:

** U S A. 1010, Nov 30 at 0700 UT, ID for KBBW Waco and several FMs,
``Legendary 10-10 AM everywhere in central Texas``. KBBW night pattern
has two tight lobes at 160 and 290 degrees, hardly anything thisaway.
Day pattern not much better for us, very minor lobe at 350, broad
major lobe at 170. FCC info does not mention any translators or FM
affiliates. But website is headed:

``KBBW 1010 AM 105.7 FM 101.3 FM 100.3 FM - Life Changing .. kbbw.com
105.7 FM in Waco, 101.3 FM in Killeen-Temple,
100.3 FM in Georgetown-Round Rock-Cedar Park
and everywhere on the legendary 1010 AM.
Keep Boldly Believing the Word``
Yes, it`s 100% gospel huxtering. Website http://kbbw.com/ is nothing
but a program sked. See also unID 1010 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** VATICAN [non]. 5930, Nov 30 at 1520, Asian language at S6-S9. Aoki
shows it`s VR via USAGM Tinang, PHILIPPINES, in Malayalam; thus
violating Separation of Church and State (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1010, Nov 30 at 0659 UT just before full ID for KBBW
Waco TX, q.v., I hear another ID sounding like KGJO -- but no such
listing nor anything fuzzily similar to be found in NRC AM Log, or FCC
AM Query. Nor is there any such call on FM in case that were a
reference. Ideas? (Glenn Hauser, OK,, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1521, Nov 30 circa 1840 UT = local mean noon, ~1 kHz het
upon 1520 KOKC, on caradio, but it`s fleeting. IIRC last winter there
were signs of this in broad daylight, and it seemed not inconceivable
that with low winter suns, the two megawatts from Sa`udi Arabia could
be skywaving such a trace this far, this early. But then there`s that
other off-frequency American, much closer (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6030, Nov 30 at 1521, JBA carrier -- could it be CFVP
reactivated? Other 6030s active at this time per Aoki:
6030 1430-1530 IND AIR VOICE OF KASHMIR Kas Delhi (King 1-7
6030 0900-1805 CHN CNR 1 (DRM) 3FF Chi Beijing 572 1-7
6030 0345-1700 CAF Radio ICDI Fre Boali 1-7
6030 1100-1530 ETH Radio Oromiya Afa Addis Ababa 17
6030 1530-2000 ETH Radio Oromiya Afa Addis Ababa 1-7
Of those, I suppose Delhi most likely (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
