** CANADA. 15034-USB, Oct 14 at 1438, Trenton Military, CHR, **still**
``no report received`` from Zagreb, Split. Are those airports of
particular significance for Canadian Forces? Tough luck (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA [non]. 1580, Oct 14 at 1438 UT, KOKB Blackwell still off
the air like yesterday afternoon, uncovering two weak signals making a
fast SAH -- most likely next-closest KHGG AR with KGAF Gainesville TX,
or maybe KFCS Colorado Springs, 10 kW ND daytimer two hours after SR
here, and well after its 1315 UT sunrise (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 88.2V, Oct 14 circa 0530 UT, big hum and intermittent
signal jumping around. At first I fear my tiny FM feeder transmitter
is acting up, normally tuned to 88.1 output; no, not that. Now I think
it must be K202BY, the 88.3 Family Radio translator for Enid, which
has had all kinds of problems, off the air recently. The hum sometimes
can be heard as low as 87.7 up to 88.4 at least. This disrupts
reception of 88.1 KWOU. Tnx a lot, Harold! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** SAUDI ARABIA. 17895.021, Oct 14 at 1432, Qur`an at S9, typical
inexact frequency, but MUF is looking up. How about the other two 16m
Sa`udis, 17615v and 17705? NO signals from either, but all three are
supposed to be on. 17895.021 is in fact the SSOB, beyond JBA carriers
on 17770 Turkey and 17605 Austria --- and no signal from 17775 KVOH
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2003 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
October 13 at 2130 on WRMI 7780, VP S8-S5.

Also confirmed UT Monday October 14 at 0130 on WRMI 7780, JBA and
undermodulated? while // 9395 has NO signal; MUF drop!

Also confirmed UT Monday October 14 at 0243 the 0230 on WRMI 7780, VP
but a bit better than an hour before.

Also confirmed UT Monday from 0302.5 on Area 51 webcast and S8-S9 at
0305 on WBCQ 5129.98. Also a carrier about 6161, doubt WBCQ.

Also confirmed UT Monday 0330 on WRMI webcast, while 9955 remains
inaudible, as well as 9455, 9395 in MUF drop -- more of which is
likely this B-season; needs more lower night frequencies. Next:

1816 UT Monday IRRS 7290 Romania to WNW
0100 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780 to NE
0800 UT Tuesday Unique Radio 5045-USB NSW
0830 UT Tuesday Unique Radio 3210-USB NSW [another episode]
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

UNIDENTIFIED. 1130, Oct 14 at 0555 UT, ``tropical`` music from SW/NE,
as KWKH Shreveport is unusually weak and easily nulled. Spanish on
this frequency unusual; 0557 UT timecheck for 12:57, so in UT-5 CDT
zone same as here, but no ID copied as KWKH resurges by 0600 UT.

NRC AM Log has a few US SS on 1130: KSDO San Diego but wrong timezone
and SS:REL; WYXE Gallatin TN right zone but wrong direxion and SS:REL
daytimer; KTMR Converse (Houston) TX, SS:REL, wrong direxion, and 25
kW daytimer; WLBA Gainesville GA, not REL but 10 kW daytimer wrong
direxion; closest Mexidirexion would be XEHN Nogales, Sonora but UT
-7. IRCA Mexican Log has two other iffies in Guanajuato, Michoacán,
leaving the most likely, altho really more SSW than SW from here, but
in correct timezone:

``1130 XECHAP Mex Chapingo 10000 5000 Radio Chapingo EDU/CAR CP (2017)
for XEUACH-1610 to move here replacing XETOL which moved to FM.
Station web site 8/19 said transmissions will start on 1130 kHz
(daytime only [sic] 1300-0100) on 10/4/2019`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1503.2 & 1476.8 kHz, Oct 14 at 0615 UT, slightly
wandering spurblobs, 13.2v kHz above and below out of some 1490
station, now here. I can tell it`s talk modulation but far too
distorted to read. Now not so sure about previous DF of WSW/ENE (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
