** CHINA. 11440, June 25 at 1414, JBA Chinese, a regular spot for CNR1
jammer against Sound of Hope.

11460, June 25 at 1414, JBA carrier, surely another CNR1 jammer. Even
as a JBA carrier the primary assumption has to be a jammer, not SOH.

11100, June 25 at 1414, JBA Chinese, CNR1 jammer.

10960, June 25 at 1415, Chinese at S3-S5, much stronger than the 11+
MHz ones. Then I scan WOOB further up:

12190, June 25 at 1419, Chinese at S6-S8, CNR1 jammer.

12880, June 25 at 1419, Chinese at S5-S7, CNR1 jammer.

13070, June 25 at 1420, Chinese at S6-S8, CNR1 jammer.

15110, June 25 at 1420, Chinese at S9/S9+10, CNR1 jammer // the rest,
this inband one vs VOA; maybe a bit of victim audio too unlike the
others with not a hint here of SOH (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** MALI. 5995, June 25 at 0630, S9-S7 of dead air, as ORTM is back to
its old trix. Nor any 6000 RHC to bother it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** NORTHERN MARIANA ISLANDS. 13690.050, June 25 at 1352, JBA
off-frequency carrier stix out in a BFO 1-kHz step bandscan. Aoki/NDXC
shows it`s VOA Chinese via SAIPAN, this hour only. And it`s gone at
1413 recheck (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 90.1, June 25 circa 1330 UT, can`t get
classical KUCO on one of my portables, nor the other classical KHCC in
Kansas; rather some gospel huxter.

Tropo must be up from somewhere else. Can it be Tulsa like I soon find
on TV? There is a 50 watt KJZT-LP there per WTFDA FM Database, jazz
and enough I guess to block KUCO inside Tulsa. No 90.1s in eastern
Kansas. The nearest adjacent gospelhuxters are: KBNV Fayetteville AR,
7.1H/16.0 V, 142m AFR; and less likely further KSCV Springfield MO,
11/11 kW, 150m, Bott network.

Tropo is up from the Tulsa area on numerous DTV channels, without
aiming exactly that way rather than further clockwise, June 25 from
1429 UT tune-in:

RF 13, KETA OKC is not decoding, must be because of DX CCI? But no
other 13 Okies; maybe KFJX Pittsburg KS; or two in AR, Arkadelphia and
Mountain View.

RF 11, KOED Tulsa, is in just fine if we wanted to watch OETA now!

BAD signal bars on: 9, 10, 14, 21, 28, 30, 31, 34, 35, 45, 46

RF 8, `Live` no longer with Kathie Lee & Regis, probably KJRH ``2``

RF 20, KQCW-HD, 19-1

RF 22, KOKI-TV, 23-1

RF 26, KTENNBC, 10-1 Ada again

RF 34, KMYT-TV, 41-1; at 1447 UT: 41-3 Grit with `Laramie`; 41-2
GetTV; 41-1 KMYT-TV

By 1441, RF 45 is decoding as 6-1 KOTV; 6-2 CW = same as KQCW on RF
20: with KQCW-19 Muskogee bug in LR; and KOTV 6.2 Tulsa bug in UL.

6.3, is NewsOn6NOW, i.e. THEN, looping replays of continuous local
news, reduced SD screen so that continuous commercials run on right
side --- same thing that sibling KWTV-25 ``9`` does in OKC on 9.2.
Photoed some of this, later in DTV pixel art breakup.

KOTV will eventually repack to RF 26, when? which may explain why KTEN
Ada will be bumped off from there; per rabbitears.info, KOTV will also
continue with relays on RF 30 and 19.

RF 45 KOTV seems to hold up longest and I stick with it, as old frame
freezes and pops up again and again, until as late as 1725 UT!

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1987 monitoring: confirmed UT
Tuesday June 25 at 0123 the 0100 on WRMI 7780, fair S7/S9+10 vs summer
noise level. Next:

2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v [and/or 2130]
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780
0930 UT Friday Unique Radio 5045-USB NSW

Also check 9330 WBCQ for unscheduled airings during testing phase.

[it appears we will now be running on a Friday-to-Thursday cycle, so
freshest new airings are on weekends]

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:

** U S A. 9330.00, June 25 at 2255, WBCQ-6 is on again, with an old
AWWW I remember hearing before; at 2300 changes to TimTron. Inbooming
of course (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9455, June 25 at 2011, WRMI with classic rock segués, some
so short it seems like medleys, no announcements until 2017, ``for
something different, go to apsradio.com`` --- so this M-F APS Radio
transmission is not canceled, contrary to what Ivo reported June 18.
S8 and much louder than 9475 WTWW which is only S7-S9. Meanwhile the
other WRMI on 9395 is still SMTV at S9 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

** U S A. 9475, June 25 at 2011, WTWW-1 is on but remarkably weak,
only S7-S9 and quite undermodulated. It used to be the SSOB by far
blasting in all day. It must be grossly underpowered now, as
propagation is certainly not to blame: Neighbor 9980 WWCR is on now
during its very limited schedule, blasting S9+20/30, and so is even 10
kW WWV on 10000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, June 25 at 1335, KVOH is already on way earlier than
nominal *1400 and to boot, propagating! Praise music in Spanish, of
course, S9-S6. SSOB by far with the only other SOBs being the JBA
Sa`udi carriers on 17895, 17705, 17615+ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** U S A. 1210, June 25 at 0604 UT, is 50 kW daytimer WJNL in MI again
on air in the nightmiddle? Yes! At first mixture with sportstalk,
maybe partial format of KGYN OK per DF, ads for DirecTV and NewsMax TV
[ugh! Has also been added to local cable lineup]. SAH of about
192/minute very close to same as last night just above 3 Hz.

Or is it WPHT? I see in NRC AM Log that both WPHT and KGYN call
themselves ``The Big Talker`` --- how original! But unsame lineups,
and no slogan heard which would not solve the question anyway.

0607 UT joins `Beyond Reality Radio`, in northerly null of KGYN(?)
which then fades down; 0634 UT recheck after newsbreak, promos for
1110 & 101 FM or more specifically 101.1 and 106.3. This all matches
with the group as explained in my yesterday`s report, e.g. 1110 is
sibling station WJML. But are they B.R.R. program affiliates? Yes per
if you let it scroll until it get to Michigan. Jimbo as heard last
night at this time was of course a playback Sunday night filler; no
new shows on weekends. Can`t find any program skeds for WJNL et al.
Are the call letters supposed to imply ``JourNaLism``? Website is
instead devoted to ``Deals``.

I`ve yet to see anyone else logging WJNL on the MW lists, where I
posted this ASAP even before including it in my multiband loggings;
was my tip not helpful? Or not noticed without a big headline of its
own? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 12010.2-USB, June 25 at 1418, 2-way in colloquial
Spanish, VP (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
