** CUBA. 5040.051, Oct 13 at 0028, RHC IS and Portuguese!
undermodulated, with squeal, and splatter from super signal of 5050
WWRB which is fortunately on only two nights a week. Unusual for this
or any RHC channel to be off-frequency; and supposed to be going from
Creole to French at 0030. WRTH of a year ago showed Portuguese on
15730 at 0030-0100, but currently not later than 2330-2400 per EiBi
and Aoki. Something`s always wrong at RHC. [Date correct: overlooked
for previous report, reminded by this:]

5040.051, Oct 15 at 0123, RHC off-frequency again, remeasured exactly
the same; correct language after 0100 Spanish, S9-S7, undermodulated
with squeal. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** CUBA. 4765, Oct 15 at 0128, Radio Progreso is S9+10 but JBM vs
CODAR swishes. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 94.1, Oct 14 at 1957 UT on caradio in western Enid,
gospel rock, something new? Not usually a semi-local here adjacent to
KLGB-LP 94.3. 2000 UT, multi-station ID for The House FM, starting
with KJTH 89.7 Ponca City but a local signal into Enid. Full stations
include call, location and frequency; translators only location and
frequency --- and 94.1 is *never* mentioned for any of them.

WTFDA Database soon finds the nearest 94.1, not far WNW of Enid:
KTHM 94.1 WAYNOKA OK 9.8 9.8 122.0 122.0 36-34-55 98-52-12 VARIETY

This makes no connexion whatsoever to The House network or KJTH, but
note the `TH` they try to include in all their callsigns.

Phones in 530 area code? I don`t think so: that`s the NE corner of
CALIFORNIA, while Oklahoma around Enid is 580!

As above and here note the license expires in only 2.55 years; why?

I really don`t think 94.1 has been on air since last November, rather
quite recently, so much so that HQ has not got around to adding it to
their ID spiel! I soon confirm on two radios that 94.1 is // 89.7 and
synchronized. ``Variety`` format seems like a cop-out, hardly does it
justice; like KJTH 89.7 it`s ``Christian CHR/Rock``

(and they were even playing imposing that today in Enid`s last
remaining Chinese buffet (also pizza, tamales, sushi), Chen Garden in
the almost-vacant Oakwood Mall --- but even so far inside the struxure
alee from it, KOSU penetrated quite well into our G8 and headset,
overriding the PA).

Of course they have a website:
https://www.thehousefm.com/

``Listen to The House FM on 89.7 OKC to Wichita • 88.5 OKC Metro •
100.1 Wichita • 89.1 Seminole• 105.9 Stillwater • 100.1 Edmond • 105.7
Bartlesville • 89.3 Altus • 89.9 Elk City / Clinton • 94.5 Pawhuska •
94.3 Shawnee • 93.9 Ada • 101.7 Lawton • 106.1 Sulphur • 94.1 Alva •
89.7 HD1 Northern Oklahoma``

There is 94.1, attributed to Alva, a slightly larger town not too far
from Waynoka. RL coverage map shows the cross right in Waynoka; Alva
barely within the ``local`` contour while Enid is slightly beyond the
``fringe`` contour (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9830, Oct 14 at 2233, Voice of Turkey the best heard in a
long time, VG S9-S7 but some fades to S4, at ``Did You Know That``
either opening or closing of program as they play the same musical
intros and outros for everyshow. Some hum, no RTTY QRM now. Perhaps
Turkey decided they`d better get their propaganda machine in order to
support Ottoman imperialism (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Last two twits by AW as of 23 UT Oct 14, tipped by Artie
Bigley:

``Allan Weiner‏ @AllanWBCQ Oct 13
Superstation hits the air tomorrow at 3:30pm eastern on 9330khz.
Beaming worldwide with genuine 500kw of radio power. WLC programming 7
hours daily. Have a listen. ``

Allan Weiner‏ @AllanWBCQ 11h11 hours ago
Worlds Superstation hits the air at 3:30 pm eastern time, 19:30 UTC.
Worlds Last Chance Ministry programming. Have a listen and report in.
wbcq@.... Beaming 60 degrees for 4 hours then 274 degrees. Should
be fun at 500 kw. 22db antenna gain. Quite an ERP. Free speech radio

WTFK? O, he mentioned it yesterday, but not today. Nothing on 9330
when bandscanning circa 2230 UT Oct 14, nor 12120 which had since been
registered.

Nor on 11730, as headstart on B-19, yet another new frequency never in
use, per Ivo via Richard Lemke:

``USA Winter B-19 frequencies of WBCQ-6 Super Power Station:
1300-1857 on 15330 BCQ 500 kW / 060 deg to N/ME Arabic
1900-0057 on 11730 BCQ 500 kW / 060 deg to N/ME Arabic
0100-0457 on 9330 BCQ 500 kW / 060 deg to N/ME Arabic
0500-0657 on 9330 BCQ 500 kW / 300 deg to CAN English
0700-0857 on 9330*BCQ 500 kW / 057 deg to WeEu English
0900-1257 on 9330 BCQ 500 kW / 255 deg to MEX English
*0700-0750 on 9330 Spanish Sun/Mon/Wed/Fri Cuban Spy HM01``

But 9330.00 is certainly on at next check 0120 Oct 15, S9+30 gospel
huxter in English, quoting Daniel. At 0158 WLC vamp music but now
declined to only S9-S7 with deep fades; unless antenna swivel away
from us, even 500 kW cannot overcome dropping MUF. 0200 quick AW legal
ID, and re-opening Worlds Last Chance Radio, apocalyptic advisory and
into same two flat-earth guys pretending to speak reasonably that we
first heard in the initial tests many months ago. So what are the real
hours and azimuths of these transmissions? Maybe AW took my advice to
go ahead with 9330 even if they can`t yet comeup on higher
frequencies; oops (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505, Oct 15 at 0132, WRNO is S9+20/30 but just barely
modulated lady gospel huxter. It`s really incredible how many SW
stations think JBM is sufficient! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. Typo correxion: WWBA of course, not WBAA; fixed:

820, Oct 10 at 0052 UT, WBAP still has QRM with slow SAH, somewhat
audible when nulled, WWBA singing ID just before 0100, as Largo FL
station is *still* obviously on 50 kW day power instead of 1 kW night.
If they have a legit problem switching to night power and
pattern, they should just turn it off! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF
RADIO 2003, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9220-USB, Oct 14 at 0118, weak 2-way in Spanish, keyword
``cambio`` literally ``change``, meaning ``over`` (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)
