** ALBANIA [non]. Glenn, Thanks for putting Christian in touch re Tirana. We have worked out the technical details. Do you think 2300 UTC on 5850 would be good? (Jeff White, WRMI, April 26, WORLD OF RADIO 1875, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Jeff, If you can confirm a time and start date (daily except Sundays?), I can mention it on upcoming WOR. So that would replace the AWR Cuba broadcast?

5850 should be good as far as here, but that early in the summer, 7570 would reach further across the continent {and overcome storm noise better}. I assume we are talking about Tirana`s English broadcast only (Glenn to Jeff, via DXLD)

Well, we could start with 5850 at 2300 and then see what becomes available. Yes, it would replace AWR Cuba at that hour. I don't know which day we will start yet, but I will coordinate this with Christian. Maybe May 1. Yes, English only, Monday-Saturday (Jeff White, April 26, WORLD OF RADIO 1875, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Since R. Tirana can no longer broadcast on SW direct from Albania, glad that a relay via WRMI is being arranged, something I have been advocating since last year (Glenn Hauser, WORLD OF RADIO 1875, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

WRMI TO BEGIN RELAY OF RADIO TIRANA

Recently Radio Tirana in Albania ended its broadcasts on shortwave. Radio Tirana's programs were legendary during the years of the Cold War, when it was one of the strongest signals on the shortwave bands. Its programming is entirely different now in a free Albania, but the signal was quite poor in recent years, at least in the Americas.

Now, WRMI will be relaying Radio Tirana's daily English program Monday-Saturday at 2300 UTC on 5850 kHz to North America, beginning today, April 27, 2017 (WRMI fb via gh, DXLD)

Great, so you can bet I am tuned in to 5850 at 2259 UT April 27: after Biermann ID, dead air! 2305 can hear some barely audible music fill, then fades up, a World Music song in Spanish at 2308. By 2313 mostly DA, strength S9+5 to S9+15 vs local line noise level. As I had told Jeff, 7 MHz would be better: the BS frequencies, 7570 at S9+35, 7730 with S9+30. Still music at 2317 when I give up on 5850.

Later heard from Jeff. He`s getting the audio files uploaded by Christian Milling who has already aired them at 1900 UT on Shortwaveservice 6005 Kall, Germany. There is something wrong, or incompatible, with this mp2 audio file. I download it too and altho some modulation is showing on the Winamp meter, nothing at all can be heard. No doubt they`ll get this corrected for subsequent broadcasts.

Bruce Churchill in California reported: ``R Tirana via WRMI as monitored via Perseus SDR on 4/27 in MA at 2320 was only carrier, no audio - audio appeared suddenly at 2324 with nice signal. Heard from SDR in Edmonton AB at 2330 with S2 signal``. By :24 minutes into the broadcast, R. Tirana is normally playing music, so not clear whether he was hearing that or some WM from Okeechobee (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 570, April 28 at 0455, dominant signal here with choral NA early, stops at 0456 but no ID, so sign-off? Nothing further heard. Loops south, so I would expect XEBJB Monterrey NL. IRCA Mexican Log as of 2015 showed XEBJB as 24 hours, but some others going off at 0500 or 0600 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6880-AM, April 27 at 2307, very poor pirate music at S9 in noise level. Next check April 28 at 0444, still/again on with music at S9+5 vs S8 QRN level. Presumably Unknown Name Radio Network which has been reported over a very long timespan in

https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,34519.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7615-AM, April 28 at 0437, Station YHWH is on at S9, but not heard after 0500. Getting to be quite regular. More reports:

** U S A. 7490.1-AM, Thu April 27 at 2317, WBCQ with Uncle Bill playing a polka, S8 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 690, April 28 at 0454 UT, outro from a network (?) called Radio One, then local weather from KGGF Coffeyville KS, axually from a YL weatherperson at NewsOnSix = KOTV-45 (for a while longer), Tulsa. I continue to lament that KGGF no longer carries Jim Bohannon at 02-05 UT, which used to be our best source, so at 0457 UT I check whether he`s still on: KWTO 560 Springfield MO, KFEQ 680 St Joseph MO --- yes, he is. KWTO is where he worked early in his career. I don`t find a network named Radio One in the list on page 271 of the NRC AM Log, nor as a station group on page 276, nor as a show on page 272.

`When Radio Was` is on the schedule at 11 pm-midnight CT M-F

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1020, April 28 at 0500 UT, singing ID for RadiovisiÃn Cristiana (1330 NYC), so KCKN Roswell NM is currently active, and plenty to QRM KOKP Perry OK with a heavy SAH, let alone KDKA Pittsburgh PA which it is supposed to protect (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. IBOC noise check around 0456 UT April 28: 670 WSCR, 780 WBBM, 830 WCCO, 1080 KRLD (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9260-9270, April 28 at 1350, instead of WINB, multi-carrier tones again hetting each other over this range, peaks about every 0.4 kHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KUWAIT. 15540, April 26 at 1821, presumed R. Kuwait in English, VP S6 signal vs line noise level of S4-S5. I`m keeping after the electric company to fix it, and in fact they are back here working on it circa 1530 April 27 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 800, April 27 at 1200 UT, XEROK with choral NA, near-local KQCV OKC nulled as much as possible. This time I can copy enough of the full ID which follows at 1202 to tell that Radio CaÃÃn with street address is *not* mentioning an FM frequency with a seven in it, but instead after 800, they say ``Grupo 7`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 6185, April 26 at 1832, JBA carrier but the SSOB vs even weaker 6070 CFRX carrier exactly at local mean noon here. Detectable despite line noise level, and have previously found it later in afternoon. Presumed XEPPM, Radio EducaciÃn, MÃxico DF at some 1180 miles, which supposedly does not sign on until 2300. It`s definitely not on circa sunrise when never heard tho better propagable, so when do they turn it on and is it just carrier or with programming // MW 1060? Someone in the RGV might be able to tell which (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 7615-AM, April 27 at 0456, Station YHWH is on but VP, gone at next check 0514 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. RF channel A-48 NTSC, April 27 at 1500 UT, I`m monitoring snow again in case I can get KOCY-LP OKC, the Estrella TV station. Maps show tropo is slightly enhanced over central OK. Yes! At *1506 video flashes on the air, but gone again in a few seconds. This keeps happening, at *1507, *1508, *1510, *1513, each lasting well less than a minute. But nothing more in 20+ minutes after that. While on, it`s steady, and the cuts on and off are sharp/abrupt. There is no lightning around, and the steady signal, no Doppler fading, means it`s not Vance airplane scatter either.

Therefore I conclude that like also monitored some weeks ago, this transmitter is axually off the air most of the time, but cuts on briefly and unpredictably. After the first flash, I bring up KTUZ-DT RF 29, which has the same silly program (`El Show de Lagrimita y Costel`, featuring La Silla ElÃctrica), on its virtual 48 and confirm it matches altho not synchronized. RF 48 remains the last such station on analog air around here (sporadically). It`s totally superfluous for the OKC audience of course, with the high-power DTV version of same available without breaks (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1874 monitoring: confirmed Tuesday April 25 at 2130 on WRMI 15770, and NOW, 9455 is finally on the air and during this hour at least, // 15770, both fair-good. Also confirmed Wednesday April 26 at 1315.5 on WRMI 9955, very poor. Also confirmed Wed Apr 25 at 2100 on WBCQ 7490 webcast. Also confirmed Wed Apr 25 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330.0v-CUSB, good.

** U S A. 9455, April 25 at 2132, WRMI-5 is finally activated as predicted for more than a week, replacing 6855 whence WRMI was ordered to vacate. // 15770 during this hour, and check the transmission skedgrid at http://tinyurl.com/WRMIfqs for the rest of the 24 hours, seemingly initially at least, on the same // pattern as 6855 was. At 0552 UT April 26, 9455 is S9+20 and about the same strength as // 9395 with the Oldies service, and slightly stronger than 9955 with BS at S9+10. Strength of all 9 MHz WRMI channels varies widely in the nightmiddle depending on MUF.

At 1315 April 26, again with Oldies, both good on 9455 // 9395. The azimuths are 285 and 355 respectively, so we are about halfway between them circa 315. April 26 at 1718 check, 9455 at midday is a JBA carrier, weaker than 9395 with Oldies, and 9955 with BS. I`m still fighting a 24h line noise level. April 27 at 1055, 9455 is JBA carrier when during this hour only it`s scheduled // 5850 on System F with variety of programming, 5850 with `Voice of the Report of the Week` at 1000 on Thursdays (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490.068, April 26 at 0557, WBCQ at S9+10 with music, not BS until joined in progress and without any ID, from 0600. Yet 23 hours later, April 27 at 0516, 7490.1 is already in BS for this hour, his current monomania being pentecost. BS on 7490 supposedly runs only until 0700* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15555-USB, April 26 at 1822, WJHR with usual gospel huxter, at S5 about the same as the line noise level. Many other times during the day it`s inaudible, hard to be sure if on air or not, but it`s no 50 kW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7575.8-USB, April 27 at 0515, 2-way in tonal? Language, or maybe 1-way with pauses; far too close to the BS out of 7570 WRMI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA. 9525-, April 24 at 1423 check, VOI absent again today, no carrier detectable (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN [non]. 11985, April 24 at 2029, S9-S6 open carrier, 2030 NHK World R. Japon opening in French via MADAGASCAR. At least something is making it thru with rather dismal propagation conditions, marred further here by my line noise problem (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 91.1 FM, April 24 at 1717 UT check, KKRD Enid, 200-watt station, is still off the air as first noted three days ago following a storm. Still off April 25. Its antenna is on the Broadway Tower in downtown Enid. Once a respected office building, new owners got it for a song and were trying to convert it into a hotel, but now it`s decrepit, with both elevators padlocked! Maybe no one wants to climb the stairs (14? floors) to restart the transmitter? Part of the external facing cracked off last year, and just recently there was a fire in a transformer just outside the building.

This opens 91.1 for 100 kW stations in Wichita KS, KCFN, with AFR, and in Lawton OK, KJRF, another gospel huxter, but not heard yet, both in 100+ mile range. And much to be preferred, 100 kW High Plains Public Radio, KANZ Garden City KS, but just too far on internal antennas.

90.9, KOKF Edmond OK is still on with Air One contemporary Christian music, rather than the talk show I logged before, 1717 UT April 24.

89.1, K206CA, Enid, Oasis Network translator of 90.5 KNYD (or really 88.1 KMSI??) has been restored after running dead air at last check.

92.1, KAMG-LP, Enid remains off the air as of April 25. Last heard carrier on March 10, no modulation for a long time before then. WTFDA DB now shows its horizontal and vertical powers both as 0.0 kW, certainly appropriate.

104.7, KQSN, Ponca City, April 24 at 1903 UT, ID as ``KQSN, Ponca City, Sunny 104.7`` and *one* minute of Fox News until 1904 resuming music.

105.5, K288FX, North Enid, K-love translator of KYLV 88.9, is still off the air April 25, as first noticed April 21 after storms (it`s really in East Enid).

105.7, KRDR Alva, 50 kW now easily heard with 105.5 local off, is no longer ESPN, but hard rock/rap, April 24 at 1900 UT, ``We are The Pulse. . .`` and K-calls not copied. April 25 at 1546 UT: ``The Pulse, 105.7 FM``

WTFDA DB identifies it with sibling? station: ``COYOTE COUNTRY 98.3 KQZQ``. Radio-locator shows: ``KRDR-FM 105.7 MHz Alva, Oklahoma "ESPN Radio 105.7" Format: Sports Website: none``

But google search leads to this:
http://espn1057.com/krdr/
which has nothing but current sports news on it

Also to this FB, but nothing new since June 2016:
https://www.facebook.com/KRDR1057/

We would much prefer to hear on 105.7, KROU Spencer, public radio relay of KGOU Norman, but it`s only 1.6 kW, and can`t overcome KRDR until about Kingfisher on US 81 (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1874 monitoring: confirmed Monday April 24 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330.35v-CUSB, good. Also confirmed UT Tuesday April 25 at 0030 on WRMI, 7730, VG S9+20. Also barely confirmed Tuesday April 25 at 1114 the 1100 broadcast on WRMI 9955; at least it sounds like me, mixed with equally weak pulse jamming. Still no 9455. Next:
Tue 2130 WRMI 15770 to NE, 9455? to WNW
Tue 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Wed 1030 WRMI 5850 to NW, 9455? to WNW
Wed 1315.5 WRMI 9955 to SSE
Wed 2100 WBCQ 7490v to WSW
Wed 2330 WBCQ 9330v-CUSB to WSW
Note: 9455 is still not activated as of April 25, and when it is, unclear whether will still be // 9955, 15770 and 5850 at above WOR times like former 6855 was (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9455, April 24 at 1424 check, still no signal from WRMI-5, supposed to reactivate here ex-6855, altho we are well past ``next week`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15151.50-USB, April 25, 2017 at 1338, 2-way in Spanish INTRUDERS. Previously logged on 15151.0-USB: at 1455 UT Dec 5, 2014; at 0045 UT Sept 26, 2014; at 1426 UT Oct 30, 2013; at 1458 UT Oct 19, 2009; and at 1519 UT October 23, 2006 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
