** CAYMAN ISLANDS. Re ZF2RX: ``Hi, I saw your comment about my QRZ
page, and the fact that it was empty. I will fill it in soon. I only
got the call for the ARRL DX SSB contest, and haven’t had time to do a
page. I am operating from the station of ZF9CW, located on Cayman
Brac. If you have any other questions, please let me know. I am more
than happy to answer anything you’d like to know. Bray KC1KUG/ZF2RX,

** NEW ZEALAND. 11725, Thu May 12 at 0624, no signal from RNZP where
it normally inbooms, checked after first finding a big S7/9+10 open
carrier on 13840, which is an earlier NZ channel. Maybe disrupted for
maintenance day. By 0705 recheck, 11725 is on and 13840 is off. I was
about to doze and checking my scribbles later, I wrote 13740 at 0624
but took it as NZ. If it were really 13740, might have been another
Cuban anomaly (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 21, May 12 at 1453 UT, tropo check of DTV finds lots
of BAD signals into STB, but here is decoding 40-3 MeTV-RR in the
PSIP. Not sure of last two letters in font, could be AA or some combo
of squared-off letters. Lacking W9WI.com listings any more, I have to
go to rabbitears.info network roster for MeTV, and scroll down
hovering over each market until finally hit a match at #94 Fort Smith
AR KHBS. Yes, that fits nicely with the tropo area, and is not too far
away. Guess what: it`s in Oklahoma, as the FCC coverage map shows the
circle centred considerably SW of FS near Poteau, OK, altho the exact
location is not pinpointed; however its longitude is 94:40+ west,
while the city of FS, right on the border, is only 94:24. I would not
be surprised if there be several more Ft Smith `AR`, AM, FM, TV
stations really in OK. We already know that 1650 AM is in OK. Anyone
DXing anystation licensed to a stateline city better research true
location. Only other decodee is RF 20 from Tulsa, as commonly.

RF 9 does not develop but not often anything even BAD to be seen. FCC
TV Query show not a single 9 of any type or power in OK -
ex-KWTV-land, and none in KS either, altho several in TX including
full powers. But in today`s PTA along with KHBS surely it is KAFT,

First airings confirmed UT Friday May 13 at 0130 on WRMIs: 7730 S9/+20
into Maryland SDR; 5850 S9+20/30 into Missouri but both storm noisy.
At 0153 direct: 5850 S9+20/30 not noisy; 7730 S9+10 noisy and seems
undermodulated. Before 0159, 5850 at least overrides my last few
words, even tho, ``with a standard disclaimer; I say again, standard
disclaimer`` was not enough for the first one to stand: maybe I need
to say it thrice (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9455, May 12 at 0631, this WRMI is S9+20/30 and distorted,
also throwing spurspikes widely to the lower side, audible to 9355 vs
9330 WBCQ, and *still* audible as low as 9185, matching the spikes to
mod on 9455 with a second radio. Something`s odd at Okeechobee (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15770, May 12 at 1930, WRMI with NO VOA news; after a pause,
fill music starts, and no `Flashpoint Ukraine` either at 1935. Alan
Roe reported the same problem yesterday, so I ask Jeff White. He says
there was a problem on VOA’s side with audio streams and they are
trying to fix it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2138)
