** ANGUILLA. 11775, Aug 11 at 1839, PMS is on with poor signal. This
corresponds to the websked for Sunday as 16-22 UT; and she was not on
at earlier 1423 check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** BRAZIL. 9665.421V, Aug 10 at 0630, Voz Missionária in evangelical
Brazuguese is audibly wavering as I try to measure it, and it`s the
OSOB, consequently also the SSOB! It had varied this much 38 minutes
later when Wolfgang Büschel got it:

``9665.571 kHz on upper side flank now Brazilian station sermon heard

Also confirmed UT Sunday Aug 11 at 0130 on WRMI 5850, very good

Also confirmed UT Sunday Aug 11 at 0329 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville
MO, amid quoting Bob Biermann, interrupted for ham ID as required
every dekaminute, about 20 minutes into so started early circa 0309;

** U S A. 9395, UT Sun Aug 11 at 0130, I remember to check WRMI for
the Mason Vye show which started a week before at 0100-0200, and
supposed to be fortnightly; but what would WRMI program alternate
weeks interveningly? Suspected would just play back first Vye show,
and indeed they do. But first as I tune in, the Radio Tirana IS, as
should be heard here like five other days of week; but instead of RT
programming, 0131 cut to unID rock music. Poor reception on the
ATS-909 by the computer and TVs, but check again at 0142, guy is
giving a Canadian postal code ending in 1A0, and a .ca address. 0159,
ID for WQNA Springfield, and then the full Ontario address ending with
N0N 1A0 fonetikaly; before 0200 switching to Radio Prague IS and
English.

Mason Vye had notified me earlier:

``New program on WRMI --- I host a music-oriented program on student
and community radio stations WQNA Springfield, IL and WTND-LP Macomb,
IL and plan to simulcast an hour on WRMI’s 9395 kHz signal beginning
Saturday, August 3rd at 2100 ET (0100 UT Sunday) and again in a
fortnight on August 17th. My program originates from Alvinston,
Ontario, Canada and features a mixture of popular music with emphasis
on Canadian artists. North American satellite TVRO listeners may
remember me from the defunct W0KIE network. Regards, Mason Vye, Aug 2,
WORLD OF RADIO 1994, DX LISTENING DIGEST)``

I missed the first one, but saw him already on the WRMI sked grid with
his name as the program title. Too bad this bumps off Radio Tirana,
but they never asked to be on WRMI anyway, and are already pre-empted
on UT Thursdays for `This Is A Music Show`.

Then August 9, he writes me again: ``WQNA FM is ending after 40 years
in Springfield, Illinois. The Capital Area Career Center has put the
station up for sale due to rising operating costs and declining
student enrollment in the Radio-TV program. Until a buyer is found,
WQNA will continue to operate with its volunteer staff. Regards, Mason
Vye`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11702-11704, Aug 11 at 1343, intermittent SSB talk
sounds like English intonation, but cannot make it resolve by tuning
up and down in USB or LSB. Suspect third harmonic from an 80m ham
circa 3901, where nothing is audible vs high line noise level; and
probably not propagating anyway on the fundamental unlike the harmonic
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ANGUILLA [and non]. 11775, Thu Aug 8 at 1351, so-called Caribbean
Beacon is on with so-called Pastor Melissa Scott, on so-called
University Network. ``Scheduling`` has appeared to be random,
scattershot on this and night frequency 6090, but her website does
present a schedule, much less than the 24/7 in the good ole DGS era:
https://www.pastormelissascott.com/shortwave-schedule.html
and this particular log does fit into it; I have added 24-hour UT to
her confusing am & pm, for which days of week are also confusing:

``Radio Broadcast Schedule --- Join Pastor Melissa Scott via the
Shortwave Broadcast from the Caribbean Beacon.

Caribbean Beacon, Anguilla, BWI --- Coordinated Universal Time
Sunday 4pm to 10pm Daytime 11.775MHz 16-22

Pastor Scott's Program Broadcast on Intermountain Public Radio
MOUNTAIN TIME. . . [a bunch of FM stations in Wyoming, Idaho]``

BTW, this is not on the Hitlist, altho several other major American
gospel huxters can be reached. While searching for her, I came across
this unsolicited testimonial for the Hitlist from Gilles Letourneau:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F0tQFZ0rFC4
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 10920, Aug 9 at 1348, JBA Chinese, and 10960 JBA carrier;
only other CNR1 jammers in survey up to 15 MHz are: 12870, JBA
Chinese; 13550, S5-S7 Chinese with heavy flutter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** KUWAIT. 17550, Aug 9 at 2202, JBA carrier from R. Kuwait N American
service in Arabic, in over-optimistic propagation expectation. Several
previous chex recently has been inaudible, but when it is, by this
hour the OSOB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENNG DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 88.3 WBFM, Aug 9 at 1730 UT, `Thru the Bible`` is
starting, today`s reading from the whole thing being Jeremiah 13-16;
starts off about men wearing girdles, then skirts and heels! Hee, hee;
non-robotic voice keeps a straight face?? Don`t listen to whole thing
but retune at 1746 just as wrapping up this segment with Family Radio
ID. So our local satellator K202BY is finally back on the air. I first
noticed it yesterday, but then and now could have been the
non-translator gospel huxter from Wichita with some tropo, and in fact
this one has some fades as I drive around. But now I`ve got the FR ID
out of California. (BTW, 92.1 KAMG-LP is still silent.)

[and non] Fortunately my BST-1 caradio RF feeder on 88.3 still
overcomes K202BY when I turn it on at 1818 UT --- as the memory scan
soon lands on 13670 for another gospel huxter in English (TWBD), this
time all the way from Madagascar World Voice. Aside from the
programming, I still think it`s neat to hear this, mobile in faraway
Enid. Almost exactly 15.8 megameters, or 9.818 kilomiles statute,
8.532 nautical distant. It has to traverse the whole of the African
landmass before exiting from Morocco into the Atlantic. Later in the
hour has faded down considerably. We may soon know whether in B-19
HFCC, they reascend to the 17 MHz band. The B19 HFCC/ASBU Coordination
Conference will be held from 26 to 30 August 2019 in Argentina (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. Electronic billboard on the NE corner of Garriott &
Garland in front of the new JiffyTrip about to open in Enid (which
replaced a worm-infested pecan grove; sad!), flashes ``Rush will soon
be on Enid FM Radio``, and the same for ``Sean``, August 9. I can`t
read it all as I am in motion, but this surely refer to the 100.9 CP
translator K265FL [Fully Loony] for KGWA which is already airing their
rubbish on AM 960. No, 100.9 is not on quite yet. I cannot hardly
wait. This will of course also difficultize if not block reception of
100.7 from Ponca City, and 101.1 from Stillwater & Woodward. KGWA`s
original FM sibling, 103.1 KOFM, has been spurring or overloading down
to this area too (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. I have been discussing KROU`s new 105.7 transmitter from
Spencer/OKC with KGOU+ CE Patrick Roberts, Aug 9:

I`m glad you got a new transmitter for KROU; no doubt it was needed,
not that it will do us any good in Enid with that translator on 105.5,
not to mention Alva on 105.7.

But KROU ERP remains only 1.6 kW, right? As per FCC. Is that the legal
limit for this facility, or how high could you go if cost did not
matter?

I just had another look at the panel photo of the new transmitter:
https://www.kgou.org/post/new-oklahoma-city-transmitter-improves-sound
TPO 30 watts??? That would be the exciter? What is the full TPO? Must
be under 1 kW for an ERP of only 1.6 kW --- so hard to imagine (for me
not in the business) how the new transmitter of a few hundred watts
cost as much as it did, even at a bargain?

``Hi Glenn. The unit with 30w on the display is the exciter, on top.
The transmitter is 4600w. Our antenna is effectively a 1 bay (level),
four-sided panel at 640 ft. 1600 watts effective radiated power. The
new transmitter system is capable of 5000 watts. Thanks. Patrick
Roberts``

Patrick, Thanks for explaining. I did not realize that the ERP could
be less than the transmitter power -- negative gain apparently with
that kind of antenna. Glenn

``No problem. Karen [Holp, former GM] and I bought the panel to give
the most consistent coverage we could, squeezing all we could out of
the “new site” when we moved to [KFOR tower, virtual channel] 4 $ $ $ $ $ .
It really did clean it up. We used to have a 3-bay to this baby panel
at the [KAUT virtual channel] 43 tower. It was producing a messy
signal, side-mounted on that tower. Yeah... 4.6 in and 1.6 out. At our
power level erp-wise, strangely, a “1 bay” lit up is the best option.
There’s NO nulls under it in the first several miles like the gain
antennas produce. No need for null fill because there are no nulls
from multiple bays. No tower shadowing because this beast custom-wraps
around the massive 4 tower. At 640 ft, there’s not much more terrain
shadowing vs. 300 on the 43 tower which had a ton of it. KFOR was
going to charge the same anyway. I took the height :) Negative gain
systems are an odd thing in a way, but they are a bit of a legal
ability to push the envelop as much as we could. It did extend the
reach as a byproduct of raising height too. You know how it goes in
pub radio. We get one chance to do it right. Thanks! Patrick Roberts``

** OKLAHOMA. RF 36, Aug 9 at 1505 UT, from OKC, KUOK-CD briefly
decodes enough to enable the PSIP ID, then breaks up. Presumably the
same Univisión programming as on a subchannel of full-power RF 29 KTUZ
Shawnee, which displays as 36. Hepburn tropo map shows level-1 minor
tropo enhancement between here and OKC. (Enid is almost always on the
margins or beyond tropo areas --- but wait for next Tuesday!).
W9WI.com lists 7.33 kW, CP for 15. Anything else unusual?

RF 21, KUOT OKC is *much* stronger and in solid with subchannels
1-2-3-4-5, including 3ABN, but KUOT is the PSIP ID on all of them.
W9WI.com show it`s 15 kW, really KUOT-CD, without any subchannel info.
NOT to be confused, as I almost did with another RF 21 listed for OKC,
KTOU, 4 kW with 6 subchannels. There are also Bad signal bars on 20
and 22. In fact rabbitears.info shows KTOU-LD is now on 22 virtually
and really, not 21. 20 could be KQCW-DT Muskogee, which seems to be
the most-often seen from Tulsa market. Ultimately repacked, the only
UHF channels unoccupied in OKC Market #50 will be 17, 20, 28, 34

WORLD OF RADIO 1994 monitoring: ready for download early UT Friday
August 9; and confirmed first SWBC Fri Aug 9 at 2200 on WRMI 9955,
fair S9-S4 with perfect timing starting on the dot with no upcut or
overlap; local high line noise level still blasting below 9 MHz,
disaudiblizing whatever be on e.g. 7780, but not affecting 9955.
Sounds like me under the HNL on 7780 UT Sat Aug 10 at 0130 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15555-USB, Aug 9 at 1357, gospel huxter is readable in
English at S3-S4. WJHR, Milton FL is so rarely audible that it needs
to be logged for the record. Is it sporadic on air, or sporadically
propagating with its paltry incredible 250 watts, run at 1 kW PEP, per
WRTH rather than the legal minimum of 50 kW for FCC-licensed SWBC
stations? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. (7490), Aug 10 at 0054, I tune in WBCQ webcast toward the
end of `AAAWWW` when he usually gets down to business with info about
the Superstation, etc. He`s already talking about it with a caller, so
I did not get it all, just: the power supply modules in the modulator
keep popping off; it`s a design issue which has been there since
installation. When it runs, it runs beautifully. Need spare modules;
in fact, NO spare parts have been supplied tho he has been asking for
them for months! This manufacturer [Continental] is not like RCA or
Gates which used to be eager to help. Nobody cares any more. Also says
they have ``lost the prime manufacturer of antenna`` --- what??
Ampegon?
I am not sure this be relevant, but searching on Ampegon bankruptcy:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transradio
Ampegon took over Transradio a couple years ago. Transradio was
successor to Telefunken.

Allan says he is confident things will work out in the end. But could
the superstation become a white elephant? Who would be left holding
the bag, World`s Last Chance, or WBCQ?

Call from John, the VORW, says he is hearing WBCQ on both 6160 and
9330 now. Just in time for this report, here`s John Carver`s summary:

``Tonight's show started on time on 7490. Allan and Angela in the
studio. Allan is feeling used and abused this evening. A rambling
dialog trying to illustrate his disgust with things. First phone call
at 0015 from Freddie. Mr. Mike calls at 0026 with information of two
upcoming hamfests.

Allan says they're still having problems getting the antenna adjusted.
Says the company has gone bankrupt and they can't get manuals,
blueprints, tech information or spare parts. Said it's difficult to
program the antenna for all the frequency changes without a manual. He
says that there are also problems with the power modules on the new
transmitter and the company is dragging its feet getting back to them
with information or new parts. Allan blames the problems on everything
on the antenna and transmitter being controlled by computers and not
having access to programming info. The German company that bought out
part of the antenna company will not honor the warranty on the antenna
so the station has to pay for any assistance and at the moment they're
not getting any assistance.

Allan says that 7490 is running on very low power, as something in the
transmitter melted about 3 this afternoon and he can't tear into it
till tomorrow. Phone call at 0045. Caller says he is an engineer and
is working on a new shortwave station and has been affected by the
recent bankruptcy and was trying to pump Allan for information about
it. He stated that the new station was still in the future and he
didn't feel comfortable releasing any information about it.

Reading of emails at 0057. Allan also mentioned that they had set
another transmitter to broadcast on 9330 and were using it from time
to time but no details on when or what. Closing prayer at 0102. Show
was off the air at 0108 and 7490 went into Brother Stair in progress.

** U S A. 1160, Aug 9 at 0241 UT, further chex of KSL SLC, which has
been unusually weak lately: now it`s sufficient, but a SAH of
156/minute = 2.6 Hz, on the R75; rather different on the DX-398,
easily nulling KSL increasing QRM from music, Spanish. At 0317 the QRM
is worse, Spanish music overcoming at times. Nothing from UT to
compare it with, but 850 KOA Denver is also poor, when it could/should
be good. I hear from people at KSL that things seem OK there, running
full 50 kW from the Nautel, but they are looking into it (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1480, Aug 9 at 1306 UT, ``Good Morning Sunshine`` song is
finishing, English named in outro, then W&M light-hearted Vietnamese
chat, from KNGO Dallas, ex-KBXD, but I`ve yet to hear the new ID since
it changed a few months ago. Initially atop KQAM Wichita, but skywave
is dying down less than a sesquihour after sunrise, and soon losing to
KQAM English talker by groundwave (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

ACCESS TO A-19 SW SCHEDULES via:
http://www.worldofradio.com

** AUSTRALIA. 9610, August 7 at 1302, South Asian song W&M duet at
S3-S5, but I bet it`s a gospel huxter trying to ingratiate itself with
victims: Yes, HFCC shows RBA Kununurra, in Tamil this semihour daily,
but don`t you believe it`s that simple. EiBi shows 5 different
languages, depending. First half on Wednesdays is in MALalayam (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA [and non]. 6070-, Aug 7 at 1954 while my noise level has
abated, I again try for the JBA NAFTA midday carriers on 49m, and
there they are: CFRX, as well as 5950 WRMI and 6185 XEPPM (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, Aug 7 from 1346: 10160 Chinese JBA;
10960 JBA carrier; 11120 Chinese JBA; no more WOOBs up to 15 MHz on a
poor propagation morning (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5025, Aug 7 at 1952 UT, line noise level has abated, and I
detect the JBA carrier from Radio Rebelde, but strangely there are
also audible pips at the rate of 40 per minute superimposed. An
artifact around here, or transmitted that way? Something`s frequently
wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, Aug 7 at 0611, RHC English is S9+20 of JB modulation,
better than 6000 which is off; while 6165 is S9 and barely audible vs
high noise level. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15230, Aug 7 at 1354, RHC is S9+10 but suptorted, while //
15140 is OK. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 11769.9, Aug 7 at 2008, S6-S7 of undermod talk from Voice
of Nigeria, yet one of the better signals now on 25m (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. Via Benn Kobb and Mike Cooper, we had advance
notice of this event:

``U.S. Nationwide Emergency Test Today --- In the United States, the
next Nationwide Test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS) is scheduled
for today, Aug 7 2019, at 2:20 p.m. ET.

All radio and TV stations must participate. The test will not be
transmitted via Wireless Emergency Alerts (mobile phones). Moreover,
the test will not be distributed via the Internet so stations will
have to get the originating signals directly by radio from assigned
sources.

These tests tend to expose audio impairments and transmission
glitches, which is why the government keeps scheduling them. Some
stations 'forward' (rebroadcast) the tests immediately, some delay it
and some don't do anything at all, though required by law. Stations
must report their readiness and test results via three FCC forms.

The equipment required to create, obtain and forward EAS alerts is
complex and requires periodic, expensive upgrades. Few manufacturers
produce these devices. Among non-profit community stations, there is a
desire to open-source these products, which would require approval of
FCC and FEMA and, apparently, issuance of cryptographic keys to device
makers.

This is only a test and no action is required of the radio and TV
audience. However, the FCC has stated:

"Members of the public and interested stakeholder organizations that
are in a position to observe test results in their communities can
provide useful feedback on the nationwide test, including any problems
observed or any complications in the delivery of the EAS message
during the nationwide test by reporting their observations to the
Public Safety Support Center at
https://www.fcc.gov/general/public-safety-support-center."``

I set an alarum a few minutes prior to 1820 UT, but I had just started
lunch. I do grab the PL-880 for some quick chex, and indeed the EAS
tones start at 1820 on KOSU 91.7, then switching to AM, also on KGWA
960, VVKigriega 930, KTOK 1000; and KOKP 1020 --- only the last one
has noisy background, but announcement is still readable. And it`s all
over by 1822. How can we do any significant evaluation in such a short
time, especially while lunching? O, yeah, record the entire
AM/FM/TV/cable spectrum and sort it out later. Not me; did anyone,
unofficially? (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 92.1 WBFM, Aug 6 at 2232 UT while futilooking for a
sporadic E opening (later learn that Rob Ross in ON was getting OK), I
notice that KAMG-LP Enid is finally off after having run dead air for
about 3 months after one day of pretend-programming; what a waste,
just to try to block my DX. Well, I hope it`s gone for good (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PANAMA [non]. 9955, Wed August 7 at 1306, DX program in Spanish via
WRMI, and sure sounds like Manolo de la Rosa, who retired from RHC two
or three years ago, soon outro as part 3 of a talk about the Titanic,
but no name given. Would he be mortified to be broadcast now by the
gusana station? The show is `Antena DX`, host Víctor Gutiérrez then
listing its sked on WRMI and WBCQ frequencies without saying which
stations, and I think omitting the very broadcast I am listening to,
if they were cited in time order. On next at 1311 to the AER DX
report, featuring African stations in Congo DR and Guinea Ecuatorial,
once again including R. CANDIP as if it still exist on 5066, and RNGE
Malabo as if it still exist on 6250. He always laboriously spells out
P and E-mail addresses of each station, most of which are in English.
Also DWD on 5905, 6180. Once again he is not named in the outro, so I
won`t either (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1993 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday August 7
at 2100 on WRMI 9955, which was on NLT 2055 with IS & ID loop, but
joining WOR a few sex late, ``---with World of Radio 1993---``.
Earlier thought WBCQ would also be audible, but now the line noise is
blasting again, reducing it to a JBA carrier, but WOR confirmed L&C on
the 7490.18v webcast.

Also confirmed UT Thursday August 8 at 0119 check the 0100 on WRMI
7780, fair S9+10 without HNL.

Next WOR 1994 should be finished by the end of UT August 8, ready for
webcasting, and from August 9 broadcasting (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490.177, Aug 7 at 1955, JBA carrier while my line noise is
off, so WBCQ must be on this early already on a Wednesday, prior to
`Financial Survival` at 2000.

Unlike August 5, no sign of an early test from WRNO 7505 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5830, Aug 7 at 0607, WTWW-1 is S9+10 of dead air; if it were
modulating, it would still be under-.

9475, Aug 7 at 2005, no signal from WTWW-1 day frequency either, nor a
trace on 5830 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 17775, Aug 6 at 2111, KVOH is still on with S9 music, but
with BFO, carrier seems to be cutting off & on very rapidly; on AM it
sounds like a crackle. Also sounds different depending on whether R75
AGC is off, slow or fast, latter being default (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)
