** CHINA. 11120, May 27 at 1430, CNR1 jammer, poor S2-4

12500, May 27 at 1433, CNR1 jammer, poor S3-S5,and // 11120.
All of these fit the timespan in Aoki/NDXC for such jammers against
Sound of Hope, Miaoli, Taiwan. Never the same set on from one day to
the next. Then bandscan 8.9-15.0 MHz found no more WOOB jammers by
1438 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. May 27 starting at 1900 UT, less than one semihour after
local mean noon, bandscans on caradio from central Enid at a fairly
quiet parking lot, at least so at the long end of MW/low end of MF.
No storm noise now, but increasing line noise higher in the AM band.
I skip over many frequencies, only some notable items:
530, `K530AM`, Vance AFB is still off and maybe gone forever, rather
than inane loops of Ad Council PSAs, interspersed with occasional
imaginary IDs and never heard with any traffic or emergency info. As
in DXLD 18-30, it had been ``off the air again for a few days`` as of
July 18, 2018 --- and never heard since despite regular chex. If it
does resume, I shall be sure to report it.
560, fast SAH, maybe 20 Hz, presumably KWTO MO and KLZ CO at the
limits of their groundwaves 300+ and 400+ miles. But MWOffsets has
KLZ at .0000 and KTWO only 0.3 Hz away at .9997 --- nothing anywhere
near 20 Hz away
630, JBA talk, presumably KHOW Denver with far better Ogallala
Aquifer conductivity than KYFI St Louis beyond the Ozarx
650, JBA talk, presumably KGAB Orchard Valley WY (Cheyenne) as
previously under optimum GW conditions, like the Denverites
670, ``Call to Freedom`` program with Denver address: KLTT Commerce
City CO (Denver), a regular at the margins with 50 kW; no WSCR today
1070-, KFTI Wichita KS, country, is OFF! Very unusual; Memorial
holiday break? Hope they are fixing their off-frequency-minus
transmitter; yeah, sure. KNX beware. But this allows weak 1080 KRLD
Dallas to be heard without splash. KFTI still off at 1948 check
1090, weak religious talk, no doubt 10 kW KEXS Excelsior Springs MO
(Kansas City); highest frequency daytime GW from that area, 300+
miles, continues to amaze me
1130, KLEY Wellington KS, still OFF as has been for some weeks now
1190, medium SAH, presumably our two closest but also too far: KVSV
Beloit KS, and KFXR Dallas TX
1230, WBBZ Ponca City OK, is OFF! Very unusual for this semi-local
which has not been noted with any techdiffs. Another holidayer? Still
off at 1949 recheck. Nothing else audible, like the only other Okie,
which I *need*, KADA, where else but, Ada?
1460, KZUE El Reno OK, still on unlike offknocked by previous
tornado. Spanish talk, and PSA in Spanish for ``The Marines``! So not
plugged into Mexico City yet.
Re the name of the hmotel in El Reno hit by tornado, I finally got a
glimpse on KFOR of their sign still standing, American Budget Inn, I
think. Then reporter verbalized it: American Value Budget Inn, or
Budget Value per the grafix. Confusing.
1580, KLTR Blackwell OK, now it`s 1909 UT, dead air, while sibling
1020 KOKP Perry OK is nominal. I think there has been flooding in
88.3 and 92.1 Enid are still open carrier/dead air; nearby 89.3 &
90.3 are nominal.
93.5, rock?, fading in and out, Es? 1927 ``My Country 93-5``, so the
only hit on the WTFDA Database is KKDT Burdett KS, 95 kW H&V, 304.8
meters. Why should a town of 247 have such a big radio station? Maybe
because it`s midway between Jetmore and Larned. Wherever there
happens to be a kilofoot tower available? Burdett is 248 km = 154
stmi NW from Enid. Tropo from KS is slightly enhanced
101.5, Spanish but not gospel huxter KOCD nearby Okeene, still off.
Not to be faked out by ``La Mexicana``, fading 1918 ads and ID for
101.5 and 92.9, i.e. 100 kW KSMM Liberal KS way out by Guymon in the
OK Panhandle, relaying 92.9 KMML Cimarrón KS (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK,
