** BOTSWANA. 15585, Nov 26 at 1927, music with poor signal into NC
SDR. Tnx to tip from Chris Campbell, OH that VOA was off-frequency
instead of 15580, at 1800, 1838. EiBi shows nothing anywhen on 15585,
while VOA is sked on 15580 at 0500-0730, 1400-1630, 1730-2100 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 2749 USB, Nov 26 at 0730 UT, algo JBA in English, presumed
CCG with marine weather; but nothing sked in EiBi or dxinfocentre
before 0740, VCO Sydney NS. Maybe additional for urgent/emergency
info? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1550, Nov 26 at 1619 UT, `The Bluegrass Express` between
tunes. 1700 ToH ID as ``The Bluegrass Express, on 1550, KKLE,
Winfield, Kansas``. Weak but steady groundwave with SAH probably from
Sapulpa if it`s on. I was checking this out for Mauno Ritola of WRTH,
who asked earlier: ``Hi Glenn, do you hear this station? Is it still
on operation as "Bluegrass Express"? Thanks, Mauno``

I replied at first: ``Believe I did last time I tuned by. Will have to
check in daytime. 73, Glenn`` -- meanwhile Mauno replied:

``Thanks. Later I noticed in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KKLE :
"In September 2023, KKLE began airing an all-bluegrass music format,
branded as "The Bluegrass Express"", quoting:

Also reported on the air in October:
So I suppose they still continue, but if you happen to check, please
confirm. 73, Mauno`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 3090 kHz, Nov 26 at 0731 UT, S9 pop music in AM --- whoopee,
must be a third harmonic from 1030. It`s been ages since I have DXed
any such MW harmonic. No other fundamental would be an even fit. This
on the E/W longwire which is icy. Soon find // music tuning the DX-398
to 1030, and rough DF for NW/SE. On 1030 only, CCI from a C2C station,
no doubt KTWO WY, nothing unusual there. Then refined to country
format, 0743 all too brief YL announcement, maybe not an ID, also 0749
between tunes. Also audible weaker on 2060 = 2 x 1030 and 4120 = 4 x
1030; even a JBA carrier on 5150 = 5 x 1030. 6180 unchecked but might
soon confront Brasil. Paucity of 1030 stations around here makes KBUF
Holcomb = Garden City KS very likely, except in current NRC AM Log it
is also a talker. One tune identified at 0746, `The Greatest Man I
Never Knew`, by Reba, i.e. her father. But by 0755, 3090 is fading
down to S5, and gone by 0800 ToH ID time! Are they tweaking the

KBUF doesn`t quite make it here on groundwave daytime circa 1730 UT to
check whether a format change, JBA carrier vs S9+20 line noise. But:
Radio-locator shows address, where else? Valley City ND yet leads to
website with streaming:
and guess what, at 1757 it`s C&W music despite ostensible branding as
``The Ag Leader``. 1800 ID and ABC News, 1805 back to country. 1812
ABC News again but JBM on stream, 1813 blasts on with ID and back to
C&W. ``We love being your Ag Leader, KBUF``. 1820, `Sixteen Tons``.
Maybe they are mainly C&W on weekends or part time among talk. Website
does not link to any program schedule; who cares about that?

Going by NRC AM Log, the only C&Ws on 1030 are: WEBS in Georgia, 3
watts at night; and WYCZ in Tennessee, 250. At 1810 I check for
harmonix in daytime but none heard (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carriers, Nov 26 at 0507: 621,
711, 891 kHz, checking likely spots below 1200, not 9/kHz complete
scan; likely Canary, W Sahara, Algeria. No Spains on 684, 774, 855
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
