** CUBA [and non]. 9965, Oct 19 at 1418, heavy pulse jamming against
weaker talk, certainly not in Spanish --- listed in NDXC/Aoki is
Lester Sumrall Teaching via T8WH PALAU. Something`s always wrong at
the DentroCuban Jamming Command! --- tsk2, nothing to jam on 9955
after WRMI closes at 1400 (except Sat), so might as well jam this!
Without it, T8WH from far Palau used to have a generally better signal
here than WRMI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA [non]. 11580, Friday Oct 19 at 1351, Qur`an with reverb,
S9+10, i.e. Radio Nigeria, Kaduna, FRCN still relayed via WRMI;
violating Separation of Mosque and State, as the federal government
thus endorses Islam. Take that, Christians! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1230, Oct 17 at 2017 UT on cardaio, I check out semi-
local (in the daytime) WBBZ Ponca City, as there have been reports of
name/format changes. ``Ponca City`s variety station, Sunny one-oh-
four-point-seven [104.7]`` is the only ID here on AM 1230.

So I check 104.7 and hear CCI between two stations, one of them
country, NEITHER matching 1230 as I A/B. (Likeliest other is KVCY Fort
Scott KS, 16/16 kW, 201 miles in SE Kansas).

At home on the PL-880, I do get local PC ads on 104.7 at 2036 UT, and
then at 2038 UT: ``The new one-oh-four-seven The Bull`` and country
music.

So we have the incredible situation of the real 104.7 (KQSN, not a
translator) and another, fake 104.7 identifying as such on 1230!

This was reported in NRC DX News Oct 1 in Wayne Heinen`a AM Log
update: ``1230, WBBZ, Ponca City â Format to TLK/AC (ex-NWS/TLK/SPT);
slogan to âSunny 1230,â networks to C/Ok/Oa/P``

Here`s the website:
http://www.poncapost.com/wbbz-schedule

The homepage link labeled ``Sunny 1230`` goes to this!:
https://www.poncapost.com/sunny-104-7

``Sunny 104.7 is the regionâs only Adult Contemporary radio station
targeting 25-54 year old adults with a mix of Todayâs Hits and
Yesterdayâs Favorites!

Station Distinctives

Locally Unique: A blend of artists like Pink, John Mayer, Rod Stewart,
Katy Perry, Aerosmith, Adele, Elton John, and Carrie Underwood.

Local Information: Sunny features local news updates from 7am â 6pm
weekday, plus 24/7 Dan Holiday Weather from the Oklahoma Storm Watch
Weather Center, and live coverage of Ponca City High School Sports.

Local, award winning talent: Lyman James, most recently with Clear
Channel/iHeart Media and a veteran of larger markets like Wichita
(KFDI and KKRD), Kansas City (KQRC), Charlotte NC (WLYT) and
Sacramento (KGBY), now makes his home here in the heartland and hits
the airwaves live every weekday morning in Ponca City. Lyman has
earned many industry awards both on-air and production work.

Locally developed programming. Other local FMâs turn to LA and Denver
for satellite fed music and air personalities for up to 21 hours per
day. All Sunny 104.7 music programming originates here locally,
designed specifically for the tastes of adults across North Central
Oklaoma [sic].

Multiple local platforms: In addition to our broadcasts at 104.7,
Sterling Broadcasting also operates Ponca Cityâs legendary 1230 WBBZ,
and owns PoncaPost.com, a local community news and information portal
with over 24,000 followers, plus several other digital assets to
provide maximum impact for our advertisers.``

Yet also prominently displayed is a Listen Live link for 104.7 The
Bull! but does not seem to have its own page or schedule.
https://www.poncapost.com/wp-content/plugins/srr-listenlive/images/listen.png
which leads to:
https://streamdb9web.securenetsystems.net/v5/KQSN

I suppose ``The Bull`` be a recent rebranding of 25/25 kW KQSN. But
the old branding lives on via sibling station 1230 WBBZ, which
otherwise has lost its own original identity, a legacy dating back to
*1928.

Wikipedia says: ``On September 12, 2018, WBBZ changed their format
from classic hits to adult contemporary, branded as "Sunny 1230"
(format moved from sibling station KQSN 104.7 FM Ponca City, which
switched to country).

To add to the confusion, WBBZ (AM) is unrelated to WBBZ-TV in
Williamsville NY, DTV RF channel 7, originally analog 67 (Glenn
Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U A E. 15215.126, Oct 19 at 1347, fluttery JBA carrier stix out
sorethumbly in BFO 1-kHz step tuning bandscan. Aoki/NDXC shows it`s DW
via Al-Dhabbiya, 1330-1430 in Dari & Pashto. Typical shoddiness from
this site (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1952 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday Oct 17
at 2100 on 7490 WBCQ and 9955 WRMI, both poor and close to synchrony.
Next:
0629 UT Saturday HLR 6190-CUSB Germany to WSW

http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395, Oct 18 at 1641, random check of WRMI on caradio finds
dead air, while 9330 WBCQ continues BSing. Same situation Oct 19 at
1422, silence of TOMBS on 9395, non-BS preacher measured on 9330.169
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505, Oct 18 at 0457, WRNO with distorted modulation, soul
music, S9+10; 0458 outro ID as ``The Haven, Fridays at 8-9 [AM or
PM??], Saturdays 10-11 AM`` when WRNO is never on the air! Anyhow
this sure isn`t Chinese.

`The Haven` is shown multiple hours on this undated and outdated
schedule which I searched out altho it has no link from the WRNO
homepage:
http://www.wrnoworldwide.com/schedule-wrno-app/

7505, Oct 19 at 0644, WRNO still distorted modulation, but now in
Chinese, S9+10 fading to S6. Ron Howard says he still hears Chinese at
times from WRNO (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search, Oct 18 at 1227-1242
UT: 774(2)-NW>WSW; 576, 585, 594-NW, 612, 657-WSW, 693-NW, 702(2)-WSW,

** KUWAIT. 11629.762, Oct 16 at 1450, Arabic, Qur`an from R. Kuwait,
typical off-frequenciness (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA [non]. 11580, Oct 16 at 1449, strumming & singing at S9+10,
1458 music stops, bits of Qur`an bookending lively YL talk, cut to
WRMI canned ID too late, not enough time to finish it before cutoff
the air at precisely 1500:00*.

So Radio Nigeria, Kaduna is still running on this transmission,
despite World Music fill at this time on Oct 14, evidently defaulting
due to LOS from Kaduna. Is it a satellite feed, or what? Existing, or
set up especially to reach Okeechobee? Search shows it available here,
untried, among the usual other aggregators:
http://tunein.com/radio/FRCN-Kaduna-Hausa-Service-s214977

11580, Oct 17 at 1430, Hausa at S7-S9, so still going now.

Aside from the transmission grid, nothing found about the Kaduna relay
on the WRMI programming page nor WRMI FB.
No luck finding own website, but searching leads to:
https://www.facebook.com/RadioNigeriaKaduna/
but stalled since 2014y. That in turn leads to
http://www.radionigeriakaduna.net/
--- but this domain is now For Sale.
In the pattern of Ibadan in WRTH I find this also leads nowhere:
http://radionigeriakaduna.org.ng

Per WRTH 2018 page 306: 11580 must be Channel 1 in Hausa only, since
they have a separate Channel 2 in Hausa and several other minority
languages including English on MW 1107 only, and not on SW unlike 1
which had been on 6090. Wikipedia stub claims English on 4770, which I
hardly remember. Also there are two FM channels, one all-English, the
other all-Hausa.

Well, at least the Hausans have this, while VOA has been disgraced, as
Dan Robinson refers us to:
https://www.dailytrust.com.ng/how-governors-5000-gift-swept-away-15-voa-hausa-staff.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 11950, Oct 16 at 1444, YL with chorus music like S Asian
rap has me going at S8-S4 until 1447 announcement in Romanian and RRI
ID. Tipoff is the frequent word pronounced ``shi`` which means
``and``, and a sprinkling of familiar Romance-language words similar
to Italian or Spanish. Also similar signal on 11910 in German, as both
are scheduled (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SWAZILAND [and non]. 9585, Oct 16 at 1458, African language, weak
with fast SAH just starting from an understation, past 1500+. HFCC
explains it: at 1455-1525 is TWR Manzini, 100 kW, 64 degrees in
Malgache/French, and from 1500, CRI in Japanese, 500 kW, 73 degrees
from Xi`an (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 13565, Oct 16 at 1422, K6FRC CW beacon from Patterson,
California is JBA. The most often audible one, and over time only a
few others ever heard on this band altho quite a lot are supposedly
active (sporadically?) in the LWCA roster:
http://lwca.org/sitepage/part15/index.htm
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1952 monitoring: confirmed Tuesday
October 16 at 2055 check the 2030 on WRMI 7780 --- JBA but sounds like
me. Also confirmed Wednesday October 17 at 1038 check the 1030 on WRMI
5950, poor. Next:

2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955 to SSE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0629 UT Saturday HLR 6190-CUSB Germany to WSW

0330 UT Monday WRMI 9955 to SSE

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505v, Oct 17 at 0512, WRNO poor in English, not Chinese.
Ron Howard has also noticed Chinese missing at various times, but the
nominal schedule for that language has never been clear, if there were
one. In case of no Chinese at all any more, that would be noteworthy.
We need to recheck in the hour before 1300*.

Website now shows nothing about Chinese, and no program schedule at
all, just publicity for three main English ministries, headed by owner
Mawire:
http://www.wrnoworldwide.com/

Aoki/NDXC shows daily Chinese segments `Grace for Today` at 03-05, 08
-10, 11-13, and something else in Chinese at 10-11. Altho there is no
link from the homepage, this still exists without any specific
scheduling info:
http://www.wrnoworldwide.com/grace-for-today/
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6195, Oct 17 at 0601, strong carrier, off 0602 before I
have a chance to read the S-meter. Nothing scheduled, but probably
WHRI with a transmitter test before the 09-10 NHK relay in Portuguese
& Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 2598-USB, Oct 15 at 0449, synthyl with marine weather in
English, S4-S5 vs storm crashes up to S9+10.

2749-USB, Oct 15 at 0450, same type of broadcast, weaker S3. Checking
the Canadian Coast Guard website schedule,
http://www.ccg-gcc.gc.ca/Marine-Communications/RAMN-2018/Part2#21
we find that these both originate with VCF, altho at many other times
there are separate stations, partly from NS or NL; so these may well
have been in //, not checked:

These are the last broadcasts of the night until resuming at 0847 on
both. But where are these places, exactly, in QuÃbec? Elsewhere in
sked, concerning VHF, coÃrdinates are shown:

La VerniÃre
47Â21'28"N
061Â55'30"W

is in the Magdalen Islands.

Natashquan
50Â09'06"N
061Â47'42"W

is on the north shore of St Lawrence in remote SE Quebec, on hwy 138;
far from Les Escoumins HQ for VCF, also on hwy 138 much further west
between Rimouski and Saguenay.

Above website shows many other DX possibilities on these two MF
channels, on a rotating time schedule; and several other 2 MHz banders
including 2582 and 2514 where I`ve yet to hear anything. Also higher
marine bands from some northern stations (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX

** CUBA. 13630 & 13770 approx., Oct 15 at 1348, FM spurs out of RHC
13700-AM, barely detectable with tell-tale F# tone but no readable
modulation; even less so around 13773, 13763, 13637, 13623, 13555, so
the main peaks are plus and minus 70 kHz, but now also elsewhere in
between. Need to tighten them up! Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1952, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA [non]. 11580, Oct 14 at 2126, R. Nigeria, Kaduna, via WRMI,
in Hausa at S9, still going for this transmission. I wonder if there
is any English? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1952, DX LISTENING

WOR 1951 confirmed Sunday October 14 at 2130 on WRMI 7780 at S4-S6 AND
on WRMI 9955 at S9+10 but with pulse jamming; tnx a lot, Arnie! The
two frequencies are about one word apart, so separate playouts rather
than exactly // from same feed; just before at 2127 they were
different, 9955 with World Music and 7780 with `Wavescan`.

Also confirmed UT Monday Oct 15 after 0300 on Area 51 webcast, and via
WBCQ 5129.84, good S9 ending at 0330:29 so started circa 0301:40. The
0330 UT Mon Oct 15 on WRMI 9955 is a JBA carrier vs pulse jamming, but
audible on webcast.

S9+20/30. Also new immediate repeat confirmed UT Tue Oct 16 at 0100 on
9955, very poor S7 in pulse jamming; by 0114 has faded to JBA carrier
leaving nothing but jamming. Tnx a lot, Arnie! I sure hope 9955 has
held up into its South American target area. Next:

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Oct 15 from 0500:
531, 549, 558, 612, 621, 639, 684, 693, 711, 729, 747, 774, 837, 855,

1215, 1305 --- and none higher and/or when I dozed off? (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 2960, Oct 15 at 0452, S2 bit of broadcast talking,
presumably a 2 x 1480 harmonic, and where WERM, Mobile AL, has been
heard before.

But I also have JBA carriers on many nearby frequencies: 2940, 2980,
3020, 3040, 3050, 3070, 3180, 3200. 2940 had HJNT, Cali, Colombia,
last April. All but 3070 could also be second harmonix. Some or all of
them could also be R75 receiver-produced; but I am only hearing such
in this area, not lower on 2 MHz band. If & when we get extremely
quiet no-storm winter conditions, maybe something else can be
identified (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
