ENID, Okla. (KFOR) – Dozens of outraged Enid residents gathered both
inside and outside of Monday night’s city commission meeting to
demonstrate against the swearing in of a member accused of having ties
to a white nationalist group.

“It’s abhorrent. It’s inexcusable. Of course, as a priest, I pray for
him,” said Reverend James Neal of Holy Cross Enid.

Judd Blevins was elected to the Ward 1 seat on Enid’s City Commission
on Feb. 14 of this year. He was officially sworn into the position on
Monday night.

The protest of more than 50 community members at the City
Administration Building was sparked by Blevins’ alleged involvement
with a now disbanded white nationalist hate group called “Identity
Evropa.” ...

** TURKEY. 11785.009, May 2 at 2203, VOT is not off the air today,
S9+55/60 into UTwente, stronger than ever but somewhat
overmodulated/distorted especially the music. After news and ROTP, I
start paying more attention: 2217 sad song. 2220 `Weekly Commentary`
by Ibrahim ---, journalist etc. specialising in Turkstuff, read by the
heavy-accentedess, ``again danger for Turkish armed forces`` about an
aircraft carrier whose name I can`t possibly copy. If these announcers
were interested in really *communicating* with a foreign/language
audience, they would spell out names likely unfamiliar. Same model as
a ship of Spain? About number of helicopters, tanx, catapult launching
of drones and light jets, hospital. 2229 music. 2231 multi-lingual ID
filler reel. 2233 music. 2239 `Turkey`s Geomarked Products` about a
bread whose name I can`t understand, from Trabzon. I wonder if they
are trying go say ``geo-marketed`` as in exported. 2241 music. 2245
``always by your side`` promo liner. 2246 music. 2249 `with you every
hour` promo liner. 2252 quick check of reception direct: S9/+10 on
generous meter but *very* inferior to 11780 Brasil splashing mostly
evitable by USB tuning of 11785. 2153 sign/off with the usual defects
no doubt same recording. 2254.6 IS plays for one minute until 2255.6*.
Something`s always awry at Ankara, erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser,

** U K [non]. 15310, Tue May 2 at 1523-1529.5* first edition of new
BBC Arabic at 1500-1530 Tue-Sat, special for Sudan to last two
sesquimonths per BBC publicity without site, but via Alan Pennington,
BDXC, it`s UAE, 250 kW at 250 degrees. Likewise the other one at
0700-0730 daily on 21510. At 1500 I had nothing on 15310 direct, but
then hearing it via remote in RSA. Whatever became of the KiwiSDR
world map of available receivers?

** U S A. 9330, May 2 at 0653, WBCQ-6 is back on air with WLCR in
English, but interrupted at 0654 for WBCQ ID and off for antenna
rotation. You`d think by now they would know how to coördinate breaks
with programming. Recheck at 0705 it`s back now in Spanish; maybe
resumed in time by 0700 but I was on Vanuatu (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9805-9810, Tue May 2 at 0709, DRM noise and different
digitalness at 9800-9805, i.e. WINB hybrid style which indeed is
scheduled now in HFCC: 0700-0900 M-F, 0800-1000 Sundays, 50 kW at 62
degrees targeting Europe; i.e. reverse of 242 degrees when on 9265 AM,
but these DRMs are plenty strong. Blox any residual Cuban jamming
against nothing on 9805: they deserve each other (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** VANUATU. 7290, May 2 at 0657, JBA talk and music from RV, cut off
at 0658:44*. By the time I can retune to 11835, 0659.5, it`s already
resumed with song at S7/S9, as always, best reception on third
harmonic, while 7890 is JBA carrier and not audible on 15780 = X4
where it`s possible and heard recently by Ron Howard; should always
check for that when 11835 audible (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9979.35 USB, approx., May 2 at 0711, 2-way in Spanish
