** MEXICO. I haven`t caught any 10 m beacon activity for quite a
while, but now at least two main XEs by sporadic E, Sept 19 at 2222 &
28171 CW, XE1FAS/B, not listed at WI5V but only 24929.5 from Puebla
28276 CW, XE1JAL/B, 5 watts from Xalapa [not Jalapa? XAL?]

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. ``Hi Glenn, About your NDBs mentioned. 350 RG
is decommissioned; this happened several times but it kept coming
back, it appears to finally have taken effect, last reported 1/23. 255
SW still on, reported 8/29/23; 332 IC still on, reported 8/27/23.

** OKLAHOMA. 101.5, Sept 18 at several chex on caradio around Enid,
circa 19, 20 and 21 UT, dead air in $ tereo, again at original level
like months ago leading me to conclude it has to be KOCD Okeene
transmitter, altho R. Salvación claimed to have gone off the air last
January. It`s not local level, but plenty to dominate any signs of
further 101.5s. Once back at home QTH I try the DX-398 with RDS
capability, but not enough signal to display that icon if unlikely in
use, nor even stereo icon.

May have to take the time and trouble to drive the ~80 mile roundtrip
to Okeene, SW of Enid, to be sure. One FCC map indicates site is right
in center of town, slightly NW of junxion of state hwys 8 & 51; but
another shows it on east side, just north of hwy 51 and just east of
N2660 Rd. The 60 dbu contour of 14 kW does not reach Enid.

Digging further at FCC, I see nothing about it being off the air, nor
having been a relay of the 93.9 LPFM in OKC. In fact, guess what, the
main studio of record is in Liberal KS! Where there is another station
on 101.5 I have been getting:

London. VG here direct with the other three quite inferior, 17715,
