** CHINA [and non]. 15800, May 30 at 1335, CNR1 talk jammer is JBA
along with a second carrier beating, // 11785. Aoki/NDXC shows this
is a jammed Sound of Hope frequency. Then I hunt for others WOOB.

14920, May 30 at 1339, CNR1 is JBA, another SOH* as listed

13150, May 30 at 1340, JBA carrier, but not a listed SOH* frequency
between 13130 and 13160. Aha, that would be local mix KCRC 1390 + RHC

12100, May 30 at 1343, CNR1 JBA: but no jammee or jammer listed

11150, May 30 at 1345, JBA carrier, SOH frequency listed by EiBi but
not Aoki (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15369.24, May 29 at 2030, again today RHC way off-frequency,
this time with Arabic audible, VP S4-S6. Something`s always wrong at

** OKLAHOMA. 1230, May 30 circa 2225 UT, WBBZ Ponca City is still off
the air; due to flooding? (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WORLD OF RADIO 1984,

** OKLAHOMA. 1580, May 29 at 1925 UT, shortly after my previous
report, KOKB Blackwell has finally resumed modulating // 1020 KOKP
Perry, with Stillwater ad, whence both of them originate. Flooding
may be abating now if that was the cause of modulation loss, tho
carrier always stayed on (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WORLD OF RADIO 1984, DX

** OKLAHOMA. 88.1 WBFM, May 29 at 1923 UT, manipulating the PL-880
telescopic, I get NPR via KWOU Woodward as preferred, but in a
different position, carrier with dead air, which must be the station
it always confronts depending on which has a slight tropo advantage,
KMSI Moore OK. No significant tornadoes in Moore AFAIK this time. In
WTFDA Database, I see that KMSI is 50 kW Vertical polarization only,
while KWOU is 23.5 kW H&V and somewhat further. There are three Oasis
Network gospel-huxters in OK on 88.1, KMSI, KDIM 100/100 kW Coweta
and a translator in Miamuh (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 92.1, May 29 at 1923 UT check, KAMG-LP Enid is still on
with dead air and may remain so for months until something fails.
It`s beyond me why anystation will do this, paying the electricity
bill while it could be accomplishing something by resuming modulation
at virtually no additional cost; as it did for one day when it first
came back last week (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 15825, May 30 at 1751, WWCR-1 with Brother
Scare, as the creep creeps onto more and more frequencies. EiBi shows
him already M-F at 1700-1800. Now it`s // 13845, but at 1806, 15825
has split to some other g.h., while 13845 prolongs TOMBS (Glenn

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1983 monitoring: confirmed
Wednesday May 29 at 2100 on WRMI 9955, after 2.5 minutes of IS & ID
loop rating S7 with deep fades to S2; but WOR upcut more than usual,
missing my entire first phrase, ``This is Glenn Hauser, with WORLD OF
RADIO 19-83``; I keep an ear on it, and this week transmitter stays
on until at least 2129. On WBCQ 7490.2v, WOR is back to 2100 plus a
few seconds behind WRMI, but much weaker. at 2130 can barely make out
the late Goddess Irena I back to her old slot.

WOR 1983 also confirmed UT Thursday May 30 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, fair
S9 vs storm noise.

** U S A. 9455, May 29 at 2037, long mostly-dormant WRMI frequency is
back on, sounds like Oldies stream, S8-S9 (while 9395 music is
different, from SMTV); 2045 ``On Broadway``, segués, no
announcements; 2055-2057 several off/on transmitter breaks, seems
stronger after the last one, S9+20; 2059 WRMI ID by BB, 2100* off and
stays off.

It`s not Oldies, but a new programming source, as explained by
Richard Langley, to the WOR io group:

``Listening to 15770 kHz today (27 May) after 1200 UT, one might
think that it's the "Oldies" feature presented by Bob Biermann often
heard on 9395 kHz and other WRMI frequencies. But, no. It's APS
Radio, a new feature. It was announced yesterday on the WRMI Facebook

"APS Radio begins on WRMI tomorrow, May 27, from 1200-1300 UTC
Monday-Friday on 15770 kHz to Europe, and from 1900-2100 UTC Monday-
Friday on 9455 kHz to North America.

APS Radio is internet radio which features five music channels and a
news & commentary channel. APS Radio is not only internet radio; it
is radio streaming, online radio internet broadcasting, music online
and online music.

It is internet radio & radio streaming with no commercials. APS Radio
is an internet radio consisting of aggregated channels. APS Radio is
online radio, internet broadcasting, internet radio, music online and
online music. APS Radio is music online, a radio streaming service, a
radio stream & streaming radio.

[OK already, we get it, redundant redundant redundant --- gh]

Internet radio has the capacity to span the world; internet radio and
radio streaming and online radio and internet broadcasting that can
be heard anywhere. APS Radio is an internet radio & radio streaming
that can be heard anywhere.

This is internet radio & radio streaming, commercial free. Internet
radio is free and worldwide. Internet radio and radio streaming can
be accessed from anyplace, commercial free.

APS Radio is an internet radio service that consists of music
channels and a news & commentary channel. Please enjoy the rich
sounds of Internet radio commercial free.

Heard this morning using the U. Twente SDR receiver. 15770.001 kHz
came up at about 1157 UT with "top-of hour" sign-on announcement.
Fairly good signal into Europe, averaging about S9. Almost non-stop
vintage pop music with occasional IDs. First ID heard at 1232 UT.
-- Richard Langley``

But who owns it, finances it, where is it and what does APS stand
for? Only this is found on website under Trademarks:

``The name APS Radio was created and registered as a trademark by the
owner of APS Radio. APS Radio is an acronym standing for Atlantic
Pacific Systems. APS Radio and Radio Orenovscotia are registered

Where is it? ``45N`` appears all over the website; is that a
latitude? That happens to be the parallel across Nova Scotia, north
of Halifax!

Classical Track has a current playlist in EDT, another clew, not ADT.
But which of their multi streams will be on these 15 hours a week of
SW? Another obscure ``station`` on the web is taking the SW plunge.
Are there ever any APS Radio IDs?

Confirming on the WRMI skedgrid, I see another new one: ``Radio for
Peace International``, Fridays only at 2000-2100 on 15770 extended an
hour. That would be the new European program, no connexion with the
original and much-lamented RFPI Costa Rica (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD

** U S A. 1069.977, May 29 at 1925, shortly after my last report, I
find that KFTI Wichita KS has come back on air after several days;
why off, storm damage or flooding? ``Classic Country 10-70`` [sic].
Meanwhile did nothing to correct its off-frequency, re-measured as
above at 1535 UT May 30. MWOffsets had it:

1070 1069.9793 USA KFTI (Wichita, KS) [-1070.0045 range] 2018-01-02
which means an annoying 21.2 Hz SAH or LAH against KNX:
1070 1070.0005 USA KNX (Los Angeles/El Nido, CA) 2017-10-31 i IBOC
when both are audible, tho KFTI nightpower cuts from 10 kW to 1

UNIDENTIFIED. 12124.50-USB, May 30 at 1410, 2-way JBA in colloquial
Spanish; not exactly intruders (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
