** CANADA. 93.5-WBFM, June 19 at 0148 & 0153 UT, a few words of French
Canadian overcome briefly the Kansan; checking sporadic E in the car
after seeing a spike above 100 MHz on the DX Map, to my NNW. Has to be
Canadian, and only two SRC possibilities, not the QC ones:

CBKF-FM-3 relays CBKF-FM 97.7 on 93.5 from ZENON PARK SK, 1.34 kW
ERP H&V, 122.0 m HAAT, 53-01-02 103-43-36 French VARIETY ICI

CKSB-7-FM relays CKSB-1050 on 93.5 from KENORA ON 20.0 kW ERP, 100.0 m

Per the WTFDA FM Database; how can one format be Variety and the other
News/Talk since they are the same network? Position of the MUF blob
suggests SK more likely, and certainly weak enough, Kenora also a good
skip distance not too far off the bearing; nor can I DF it on the
caradio vertical antenna. Distances: 1909 km = 1186 stmi from ZP SK,
which is about halfway between Prince Albert and the *town* of Hudson
Bay SK in the east-central; 1542 km = 958 stmi from Kenora in SW ON by
Lake of the Woods. ZP is really a tiny town of a couple hundred; its
History page does not explain where the name come from nor how it
differ from Xenon:

No other Es DX could be detected past 0200 UT on the lower half of the
band, scanning thru all the open or semi-open channels we are left
with. There were one or two random meteor bursts (Glenn Hauser, Enid

** CUBA. 12200, June 18 at 0551, RHC English is S6-S7 and JBM on 2 x
6100, which is S9+20/30 and undermodulated; 6145 is louder altho
weaker, S9+10/20; 6000 has not gone off yet, suptorted S9+20. All the
6`s confront storm noise level from Nebraska to W Central Ontario.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 9689.920, June 18 at 0601, surprised to find VON here with
presumed Hausa and drumming, instead of absent 7255-, but cuts off air
at 0602*, so I check 7255 again, nope; by *0603, 9689.920 is back on.
All three VON frequencies are always considerably off-frequency-minus.
7255 is often AWOL, but haven`t noticed 9690- in quite a while; should
always be checked. One of the SSOB along with WBCQ and WRMI (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2039)

** OKLAHOMA. 515-MCW kHz, June 18 at 1423 UT, PN, Ponca City NDB is

** U S A. QSL FROM Konstantin Barsenkov, St. Petersburg, Russia, TO
WORLD OF RADIO he heard on WRMI 7780:
Now #91 via http://www.worldofradio.com/QSL.html

With this message:
``Dear Mr. Glenn Hauser, My name is Konstantin Barsenkov, I am 45
years old, I was born and live in St. Petersburg, Russia. More than 25
years ago, one of my favourite hobbies was DX-ing (shortwave
monitoring). In the 90s there was no Internet, letters were long, and
international correspondence was quite expensive for a student.
About four years ago I decided to try it again. And now I'm passionate
about this hobby again. I still use my old Soviet military analog tube
receiver R-250M2 (it's probably older than me and it weighs 90 kg!)
with a long wire outdoor antenna.

Today I was pleasantly surprised to hear my name in your program World
of Radio. Earlier my message was published in the Anatoly Klepov's
bulletin Russ-DX Plus#858 and it was about Chinese jumming of Sound of

Actually, I don't know if you send any QSL, but I'll be very
appreciated for your confirmation of the current reception report
(perhaps letter or any picture by email) and thanks in advance!``

Very nice, but please note WOR as a program does not offer QSLs,
leaving that to stations; only WRMI has a WOR-design QSL for reports
sent to them of receptions on WRMI only. I forwarded his report (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 17775-, June 18 at 1425, KVOH is on and propagating but
again just barely modulated (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
