** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 101.5, Sept 8 circa 1820 UT on caradio around
Enid, seems to be slight quieting but no Spanish; no stereo pilot
either, so if KOCD Okeene, either turned off $ or just too weak to
fire. Later circa 1830 at a certain sweet spot, getting JBA Spanish
talk show about finances, more likely KSMM Liberal KS than religious

No, it isn`t: KSMM format is regional Mexmx and even sort of a program
sked on website: ``12 PM – 4 PM Monday - Friday Erica Majalca ”La
Manzanita" Join “La Manzanita/The Little Apple” as she presents la
música del pueblo: banda, corridos, rancheras, cumbias, pop,
romanticas and unforgettable classics every afternoon``

So back to KOCD? Website has no specific program sked,
but ``something for everyone`` and this revelation!:

``The History of Our Station / La Historia de Nuestra Estacion
Radio Salvacion esta en el aire desde el año 2001, transmitiendo por
el 1220 AM, y 890 AM.

KWDW-LP 93.9 comenzó a transmitir en las ondas de LPFM en Agosto del
2014. Dejo de transmitir en Enero 2023.

KOCD 101.5FM comenzó a transmitir como Salvacion Radio Network en
Noviembre 2018. Termino de transmitir en Enero 2023``

Sic, sporadically accented. Sez both 101.5 and its primary on 93.9
went off the air in January 2023. So what were we hearing since then
but not recently? KOCD 101.5 transmitter might have been on air anyway
for test or oversight, or even being sold off.

Hmmm, there is another Okie in Spanish I had not previously
considered, just north of Tulsa, a lot closer than Liberal KS, but a
lot weaker. WTFDA FM Database shows the one for whose ID I must be

200.0 m HAAT 36-20-02 95-47-08 17BC 101.5 El Patron; 183 km/114 stmi

As for 1220 y 890 AM, must have bought some brokered time, not owned:
KTLV 1220 Midwest City is now UC:GOS, no mention of Spanish in new
2023-24 NRC AM Log; KTLR 890 OKC is REL/TLK, no mention of Spanish but
owned by Tyler Media which also runs KTUZ TV with three or four SS
networx, and KTUZ 106.7 fulltime Spanish (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Fri Sept 8 at 2200, token English from SNR. Justin
Coe is again heard during part of the program. VG into Maryland SDR,
also 15520, 17715; and 11670 for Africa better than usual but still
squealy. Too may distraxions including Turkey to note much detail.
Kenneth Vito Zichi habitually reports on these in great detail,
presumably by recording and research, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY [and non]. 11785.009, Sept 8 at 2200, VOT English not off
the air, S9+45/50 into UTwente. I try to compare it to simulEnglish
from Romania on 11800, only to find that unusually weak and bothered
by splatter, which I then observe at least plus/minus 15/20 kHz both
sides of VOT, and sure sounds like the source, not distorted on 11785
itself but plenty loud. 2213, ``with you every hour`` promo, song.
2217 `Weekly Analysis`, writer unattributed, about foreign minister
visit to Iraq, as predecessor to planned Erdogan visit; lots of issues
to be resolved, notably PKK activities in northern Iraq. 2231 `Feeling
Supreme/The Healing Supring` on benefits of linden tea. As here, std
disclaimer about any associated advertising:
2242 `Did You Know That` about unique cheese produced in some Turkish
city, dating back to 5000 BC [sic], so a repeat by the badax; music.
2253 canned s/off as usual. 2254.5 IS, 2256.5 German ID, but 2257*
chopoff. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2207 monitoring: confirmed Friday

** U S A. 9330, Sept 8 at 0628, no signal from WLCR/WBCQ-6, presumably
off; tho propagation has been degraded, WRMI still good on 9395, 9455,
9955, but has a Southern advantage. Allan Weiner says today marx
WBCQ`s 25th anniversary on the air, *1998y. Congrats (Glenn Hauser,

** U S A. 5130+, Sept 9 at 0030, no signal from R. Trump
International. Allan said on `AAAWWW` a few minutes ago that it was
hit by lightning the day before. Tsk2. So WBCQ simulcasting now only
on 7490- and 6160- (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
