Glenn Hauser logs May 30-31, 2023   
Thursday, June 01 2023

Logs
** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, Wed May 31 circa 2010, no signal from
LRA36 into Argentine SDR. Manuel Méndez, Spain says it was on today,
only at *1936-1954*. Earlier mail from them said would be on Sat & Wed
at 15-18 local but that equals 18-21 UT; suspect time conversion
confusion (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** COLOMBIA. 10125 CW, May 31 at 0621, HK3QQ is back after missing May
27, and since? With usual slowly spaced keyboard strokes in order with
errors and omissions as previously explained, notably X instead of P;
and X again between Z and C. Also spells out QTH, BOGOTA COLOMBIA
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. After a bunch of Florida FM DX, I resume in the car -- see
USA for details, and immediately hear Spanish:

92.1, May 30 at 2324 UT, strong signal with folk? music so not OK;
2331, Spanish ad in pesos, so not Unitedstatesian; 2332 Soriana ad, a
Mexican market nationwide chain, and others in frenetic string; 2345
possibly a different station since now there are ``Radio Disney`` IDs
between every commercial; must have heard at least 6 of them; includes
Walmart and Home Depot, in Spanish. Faded by 2353 when I hear an OKC
ad, i.e. K221FQ, 99 watts of KRMP 1140.
XHFO-FM 92.1 CD. DE MÉXICO CDMX MEX Spanish CONTEMPORARY HIT RADIO
RADIO DISNEY 100.0 134.0 19-25-57 99-07-59 230C - 'KHFO Radio Disney
XFM - ELEVA TUS XPECTATIVAS
1890 km/1174 stmi

92.9, May 30 at 2326, ``La KeBuena``, ad for Los Tigres del Norte at
Arena Ciudad de México el 9 de junio; fadeout by 2330 and no DX on
higher frequencies now. There is another Que Buena on 92.9 in San
Antonio TX, but it`s too close and CDMX on 92.1;
XEQ-FM 92.9 CD. DE MÉXICO CDMX MEX Spanish REGIONAL MEXICAN KE BUENA
79.07 79.07 214.0 214.0 19-23-40 99-10-26 1929 92.9 FM LA KEBUENA 92.9
FM LA KEBUENA Country
(Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 102.7, during FL FM DX opening, May 30 at 2117 UT, not
much signal from KJYO OKC; not obscured by DX, just very weak compared
to the other full-powers from OKC like 100.5, 101.9, 104.1. I do pull
a ``KJ103`` ID JBA at 2355 as I quit. Something must be very wrong.
WTFDA listed as:
KJYO 102.7 OKLAHOMA CITY OK CONTEMPORARY HIT RADIO KJ-103 94.1 kW
372.0 m HAAT 35-35-52 97-29-22 1A42 KJ103 Artist/Title Top 40 (Glenn
Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** U S A. My first sporadic-E FM DX opening this year, May 30 I see an
MUF spike of 107 MHz between here and FL on DXMAP, so out to the car
in the now hot garage, mid-80s at last outside, to DX on the stock
Nissan Sentra 2004 caradio with fender vertical antenna only; all logs
in real time with my own ears, no RDS capability, no internet for
stream comparisons; but research later from my scribbled notes, mainly
the WTFDA FM Database, also in general searching if needed. All times
strictly UT! Numbers just before geo coordinates are kW ERP and
antenna height above average terrain in meters. Identical horiz and
vert figures, u.o.s. Lasst figures are distances in km/stmi
city-to-city so approx., not site-to-city, from disitancefromto.net. I
do not count stations, states or anything, what`s `new` or not, and am
not in a competition. Clarifications, correxions welcome.

100.3 at 2115, Spanish in & out; 2122, Spanish music over CCI; 2125 ad
boletos for a rock concert, 407- phone number; 2129 f/out, 2130 f/in;

95.3 at 2205, rock CCI to OKC KOKC translator which really gets out
from a hightower; in FL, lots of xltrs but only rock non xltrs are:

97.3 at 2208, talk show phone 877-381-3811, CCI from rock. Phone leads
to Mark Levin; can`t find an affiliate list on his site, but this FL
station runs him at 6-9 pm: however, KCLI Cordell OK is also talk, no
sked found.

81-05-37 74DE FLORIDA'S NPR NEWS STATION 90.7 News News ---
Conventional propagation is lowest frequencies open first but does not
work that way from FL to me -- I keep checking the few `open` non-comm
frequencies here, like 88.1, 89.5, 89.9, 90.7, 91.3 and have plenty
logs highband before this finally shows up. 1774/1102

94.1 at 2222, Tampa traffic on Wild 94-1:
WLLD 94.1 LAKELAND FL RHYTHMIC CHR WILD 94.1 100.0 455.0 27-40-23

Lakeland is between Tampa and Orlando; note 94.1 above with Orlando
traffic, a local translator there or would WLLD also deal with
Orlando? 1759/1093

94.9 at 2224, Disney World ad, Publix in Atlanta, Williams Family
Reunion ad; but Atlanta is way out of the PTA; I can`t get a HQ for
Williams Family on FB. Which?

MUF seems falling and I need some R&R while catching BBC TV news, so
suspend until 2324 when I find Mexico City is incoming, q.v. (Glenn
Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** U S A. A much more intense Es FM DX opening over eastern America,
in progress when I tune in May 31 at 1521 UT until 1625. Mostly Ohio
stations, some New York, Ontario and a French Canadian probably also
Ontario rather than far Québec. Compiling and researching details for
full report may take a day or two (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13500, May 31 at 0602, finally copy definite Morse code ID
thrice amid CODAR: WRPW865 - note that the first four letters are the
same as for the 4-MHz one tracked in Feb to the MS/AL/FL Gulf coast.
And again at 0622 in its icosaminute cycle. Total CODAR audibility
range approx. 13445/13570. So exact center would be 13507.5.

For more info I first try www.radioreference.com but goes nowhere
beyond Sonoma Country on that call. On to FCC ULS which gets it; from
propagation clues I figured it would be on California coast.

The question is, whether at any given time are we hearing only one of
the six, and how to tell which; or are more, or all of them running at
same time in some kind of coördination? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7260, May 31 at 0624 no signal from RV, normally on here
until 0759 switch to 3945 and harmonix. Now not on those or 5040. Ron
