** OKLAHOMA. 89.1-WBFM, May 30 at 2014 UT, 205-watt H&V Enid
translator K206CA surprising with gospel song in Spanish, 2017 back to
English. Noticed as I am bandscanning futilely for sporadic E DX. This
is the Oasis Network, primary KNYD 90.5 Tulsa market, 80/80 kW Broken
Arrow. But it can`t be an off-air pickup due to our semi-local on
90.5, KBVV Goltry. Oasis is also on 88.1, 0/50 kW KMSI Moore, more
audible here vs KWOU Woodward. There is not a word of Spanish on the
Oasis website, unless they be the names of founder David Ingles,
depending on how he pronounce them, but his music is in English (Glenn
Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 88.3-WBFM, May 30 at 2015 UT, 250-watt Enid translator
K202BY, is spreading out between 87.7 and 88.9 on the DX-398 as I
attempt to check ``open`` frequencies for sporadic E DX. WTFDA FM
database still has this as a Family Radio satellator of KEBR 88.1 in
California! Despite my first report Feb 1 of transfer on the air to
KJIL 99.1 Copeland KS, as in ``Jesus Is Love``. Normally it only ruins
adjacents 88.1 and 88.5 (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SAO TOME E PRINCIPE. 9830, May 31 at 0634, African language under
NSS RTTY: it`s DW in Hausa relay at 0630-0700 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, May 30 at 2203, no signal from VOT English to us,
just NSS RTTY. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler. Local noise
blob has fortuitously drifted upward so that only its edge barely
bother 9830 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 475.09-CW kHz, May 31 at 0636 UT, Dave Frantz has resumed
his very slow Morse code beacon at WWRB Manchester TN, ``WA4SZE COM
WA4SZE/BEACON``. I tune past here almost every night, and last time
heard was December 10, 2019 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 18150-USB, May 30 at 2200, KJ4BJ, ham in Tennessee in
contact with 9Z4AH in Trinidad, unheard. QRZ.com shows antennas and
Sporadic E opening; can`t compare to 15825 WWCR Nashville, which has
just gone off, but 13845 is very poor. Dayton is 110 miles ESE of
Nashville, roughly between Chattanooga and Knoxville; and site of the
infamous ``monkey trial``.

18160-USB, May 30 at 2207, KJ4BJ has QSYed to here, contacting JBA
HP9SAM in Panamá; only activity on the band (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 28433-USB, May 31 at 1824, good steady ham signal discussing
tubes etc. with unheard contact, no calls, overs or beeps, but finally
closing at 1833 as ``W6SCC, 10-3``. So sporadic E from California? No:
``W6SCC USA Guy B Coleman, Tucson, AZ 85745 USA``. Mentioned hearing
close Colorado on 10m, mode Es? Certainly. Now there is a 70+ MHz MUF
over New Mexico or so. Seemed the OSOB until:

28380-USB, May 31 at 1834, even stronger unID ham, S9+20 discussing
10-10 net`s declining membership (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2036 monitoring: still no confirmation from
Ivo or anyone of Saturday 1300 on 15770 WRMI; but at least this has
finally been entered on the WRMI skedgrid.

Confirmed UT Sunday May 31 at 0300 on WRMI 5800, VG S9+10/20.

Next nominal airing at 0315 UT Sun on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, much
delayed due to open-ended durations of various preceding hamshows:
good signal at Indiana SDR, first check at 0302, TWIAR, and then
Houston AMSAT; 0402 ARRL news; but WOR in progress at 0427 about 16
minutes into so must have started circa 0411. Next:

0130 UT Monday WRMI 7780 to NE
0230 UT Monday WRMI 7780 to NE
0300vUT Monday WBCQ 5130v Area 51 or 6160v to WSW
0330 UT Monday WRMI 9955 [jammed] to SSE
0900 UT Monday Unique Radio NSW 3210-USB
1800vUT Monday IRRS 7290 whence? to WNW 594-Italy
0100 UT Tuesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW [off air last week]
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, UT Sun May 31 at 0017, WTWW-2 with `Theatre Organ
[NOT] In The Ozarx`, in progress, S9+30/40! but suppressed/distorted =
suptorted modulation. Probably would be in good clear $ tereo on
webcast, but not convenient to access. Last week this show never
appeared during 2-hour window (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VIETNAM [non]. 7315, May 31 at 0008, VOV English relay is S9+10 but
just barely modulated; WHRI transmitter ailing? Or no one turning up
the volume (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 2097.3, May 31 at 0619 UT, single-letter beacon A is JBA
in noise level, every dekasecond. Altho a reliable source has assured
us it is not heard as a local signal in Quartzsite AZ, I see in
classaxe.com it is still placed in Quartzite [sic] with a period of
10.14 seconds, last logged by anyone there 2020-08-05. QZ is about 17
miles from the CA border on I-10 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 4875-USB, May 31 at 0021, two tactical calls also
exchanging uteblaap traffic, fonetikaly: 40W and ZPM; seems like there
has been a MARS net here? No QRM from the 4875 ZY, too early? (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)
