** KOREA SOUTH. 5990, Oct 1 at 1311, VP talk unknown language, but
something new. Soon IDed by Ron Howard heard a few hours earlier as
Echo of Hope - VOH, ex-5995 among a bunch of other frequency shifts by
such clandestines, also 3980 ex-3985, 6348 ex-6350. Voice of the
People 3905 ex-3910, 3475 ex-3480, 6595 ex-6600. Their other
frequencies unchanged. ``Thanks very much to the timely alerts from
both Hiroshi and Hiroyuki Komatsubara, as to these changes.`` Ron`s
full report in the WOR iog (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1580, Sept 30 at 1852 UT, KOKB Blackwell is back on air
after silence a few days, during which ``Triple Play Sports`` was
changed to ``Double Play`` --- just kidding (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 27454.8-LSB & 27454.9-LSB, Sept 30 at 2130-2137+, strong
local QSO between two good ole boys about weather etc., not on exactly
same frequency, no IDs. Absolutely no skip or local signals on any
official CB channels, not even major CB calling/traffic frequencies,
so I kept tuning into freeband for anything at all. Maybe this is a
regular Enid hangout (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 11670, Sept 30 at 2123, no signal from REE`s African
frequency, nor has there been for at least several days whenever
checked; other ones are better but not totally reliable: 12030, 11940,
9690. Apparently one transmitter stays down, altho HFCC
http://www.hfcc.org/data/schedbybrc.php?seas=A19&broadc=REE
shows these imaginary/alternate frequencies on the 161-degree beam:
11530, 15350, 15360, 21620 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2001 monitoring: confirmed via
UTwente SDR, Monday Sept 30 at 1816.5 on 7290 from IRRS; big open
carrier came on at *1812.6; music at 1814.4 instead of talk fragment,
Aïda march at 1815.0. VG signal but some fading/distortion, better on
ECSS tuning. HFCC registers this as 0 degrees/ND from ``Milano`` so
it`s no help about true spex. Observer, Bulgaria says it`s 100 kW, 300
degrees from Saftica, the third site in ROMANIA. Like Tsiganeshti,
it`s slightly north of Bucharest. Guess what, 300 degrees from there
aims right at London and Miami, and not far off UTwente. Next:

2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

** U S A. 650, October 1 at 0611 UT, surprised to hear news instead of
music, not WSM? No, soon finishing ``CBS News Update``, back to WSM
singing ID; odd time to drop it in. Seems to me WSM was originally NBC
for many years (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 820, October 1 at 0609 UT, country music under WBAP but soon
fading up and overtaking it by 0613 on E-W longwire. Like last night,
WWBA Largo FL is on 50 kW day power instead of 1 kW night. Meanwhile,
I see that WWBA has been heard as far away as BC, where FL is quite
rare (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 870, October 1 at 1228 UT, Spanish ads with Dallas
addresses, including a church, so definitely KFJZ Fort Worth in new
REL:SS format; squeezed between WWL and XETAR, about to fade out
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 880-DSB, October 1 at 1232 UT, Western Indian Network
tri-station ID for KTBA 760, KHAC 880 and KWIM 104.9; 1233 `Ask Pastor
Mike` about suicide; all in English. KHAC officially Tse Bonito NM.
Easily separable from KRVN close to right angles; and KHAC obviously
still a major cheater, U1 10000/430 long before October sunrise 1315
UT (November: 1345) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1010, October 1 at 1235 UT, RCC chanting, in morning mass as
on Radio Católica Mundial, from the direxion of and no doubt out of
KTNZ Amarillo TX (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1090, October 1 at 0619 UT, two strong stations at about
equal level thus making a very heavy SAH of 256/minute = 4.27 Hz. One
is RCC talk in English, sounds like M. Angelica, obviously EWTN`s KEXS
Excelsior Springs (Kansas City market) MO, supposedly a 10 KW
daytimer; the other, as soon it IDs, KAAY Little Rock. Catholix vs
Protestants! BTW, I remarked that the NRC AM Log does not deal with
STAs, which is true in the case of 1520 KOKC, but for KAAY it shows
STA U1 5000/5000 instead of U2 50000/50000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
