Tuesday, May 30 2023

** CANADA. 15034, May 29 at 1816, Trenton Military with ``no report
received`` of aviation weather from Trenton! itself, Ottawa, Toronto,
Bagotville; and for good measure tells us all that again. But then
does have terminal forecasts for the same.

1820 ID, with ``time: 14-20, zulu``!!! but which is really EDT. At
least they are not 4 or 64 minutes slow as was the case for a year or
more. Then back to NRRs for the next set of failures: Calgary, Cold
Lake, Winnipeg, Edmonton.

Tnx Richard Langley who first reported their latest time confusion:
``A fairly good signal on 15034 kHz USB today (26 May) down here in
The Keys at about 21:30 UTC. As usual, many "no report received" for
both Canadian and overseas sites for current weather. But there were
complete forecasts given for several sites. Announced time, supposedly
in UTC (Zulu), would actually have been correct for EDT; i.e., 17:30
Zulu was announced at 17:30 EDT. -- Richard Langley``

I certainly hope Canadian Forces achieve a bit more accuracy in
matters of life & death (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 13920, May 30 at 1515, carrier with flutter, presumably CNR1
jammer against SOH, supposedly in a break 15-22, but nothing now on
14920 or 15920 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11670, May 30 at 0629, RHC English, S9/+10 with some squeal,
wrong frequency and only one still on. Maybe so often it will become
``right``? Lacking any A23 schedule of what RHC intends to do;
something`s always wrong (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY. 15220, May 30 at 0628 music, about the SSOB, but off at
0630. It`s AWR French via Nauen at 0600-0630 for WAf; for NAf to
resume at 07-08 in Arabic, 0830-09 in TAH which means
``Tachelhit/Sous: Morocco, southern (4m), Algeria [shi]`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GUAM. Ben Dawson, WA, of Hatfield-Dawson reports May 30 about KSDA:
``Glenn, I am told that there was some damage to two of the AWR
curtains, but they anticipate having them repaired and back in service
this week. And the related 630 medium wave KICH (at the same site,
using one of my temporary antenna kluges) is on the air with no
problems except when they are working on the adjacent curtain as the
temporary antenna uses one of the curtain towers for support. ben``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 910 kHz, further checking for new format of KVIS, Miamuh
as in previous report: UT Tue May 30 I spend more than an hour of
continuous listening and hear no announcements whatsoever -- no DJ, no
ads, no slogans, not even legal IDs circa two hourtops. First on the
NRD 545 with Wellbook antenna E/W. Details:

0047 classic rock, S0/S1; 0049 pause and another tune. I don`t
recognize most of them but I would say this is AOR, i.e. playing track
after track with several seconds` pause between them. Almost all
instrumental. The ~1 Hz groundwave SAH is still there, increases at
0056 as one or both sigs fade up a bit. Music past 0101, no ID! 0103
SAH gets heavier such that the fading noise itself is increased QRM to
the modulation. 0106 YL vocal. 0112 SAH noise peaks, segué, now
S1.5/S2. 0120 f/out too weak even for ECSS to lock on; 0123 f/in,
still tunes, 0126. Approx. LSS at KVIS is 0130 UT now at Monatswechsel
between 0115 May and 0145 June. Sig now ranges S1.5/2 again.

Then I switch to caradio in garage with ND antenna in case it`s any
better. Skywave from Iowa etc. now in tophalf of band. WSUI, onetime
WORLD OF RADIO affiliate, might make it on 910. At 0149 some Irish?
music peaks, maybe not KVIS, then back to a vocal ballad. 0154 song
with lyrix mainly ``Give It Up, Africa`` - not sure of last word. More
segués, no ID past 0201 when local noise level obscures whatever as
some neighbor turned something on. The nearest streetlight emits an RF
noise burst as it switches on automatically, but it`s only brief and
should have been earlier. Enough! (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. EDITORIAL: Lawmakers listened to constituents, voted to
override OETA veto --- Enid News & Eagle Editorial Board May 29,

Oklahoma State Capitol (OSC)
A native Redbud tree in bloom for spring is shown on the state Capitol
grounds in Oklahoma City. The Associated Press


It was a wild end to the regular legislative session with Oklahoma
lawmakers overriding 13 of Gov. Kevin Stitt’s vetoes, including one
dealing with OETA — the state’s public television station.

It wasn’t entirely unexpected by the governor’s office to have most of
these vetoes overridden — he had vetoed several bills as leverage for
his public education and tax credit plan — which he got.

However, the most significant disappointment to him might be the
overwhelming override of his veto against OETA. The governor had
vetoed a typical funding authorization bill, and later said he
believes OETA is indoctrinating children to the LGBTQ and transgender

“Some of the stuff that they’re showing, it just overly sexualizes our
kids,” Stitt said in April. “There’s parents defending child
transition on PBS that’s being played.”

Thankfully, most constituents in Oklahoma and lawmakers saw through
this ridiculous ideological and hyperbolic accusation.

OETA is one of the nation’s most watched public broadcasting stations,
and despite Stitt’s concerns about some programs that support LGBTQ,
most parents realize there is more good informational and educational
programming on the station than what Stitt is concerned about.

Public television still has an important role in Oklahoma. While
several states are cutting or eliminating funds to public television,
OETA remains extremely popular among Oklahomans, and it serves all 77

We’re thankful lawmakers listened to their constituents and voted to
override the governor’s veto on funding OETA. Support local
journalism. (via gh, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785.009, May 30 at 2244, VOT English to us is not off the
air today, not checked earlier as I was occupied with FMDX; Turkish
song at S9+50 into UTwente. 2246 `Always by your side` promo (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2192 monitoring: ``Dear Glenn: Confirming
World of Radio #2192, update May 30, 2023, WRMI: 9395, slight TV QRN
heard, 0030, 0044, 0058 (45433), 0059, May 30 UTC 2023 [Tue] (Lemke,

** U S A. 5130 -22 Hz = 5129.978, UT Tue May 30 at 0235, S9+5/15 into
NH SDR, I tune in WBCQ R. Angela; on the sked every week in May this
hour is `Marion`s Attic`, but it`s `Greek Music Refuge` instead, nice
mx with occasional words from Zach, closing at 0259 by UB not giving
the title. And 0300 `FTIOM`, an hour when there is a fifth Monday at
the curator`s choice. I check my calendar again: yes, this is Monday,
not Friday. Furthermore, a surprise replay of WOR 2192 at 0400 UT
Tuesday, perhaps makeup for incomplete airing on UT Saturday. HArdly:
already off at 0422 check: probably chopped circa 0412, the usual
finish on Monday nights. Must have been a playback of the UT Saturday
program file, which had problems originally. Seems WBCQ is unable to
adapt to short-term variations. Anyway, check
for what`s planned for the rest of May --- and that`s it! Just in from
Bill is some very sad news:

``Press Release: Radio Angela To Cease Broadcasts May 31

WBCQ's Radio Angela, which began broadcasting a little over a year
ago, was a bold experiment in quality programming. It carried world
music (including the last Greek music on shortwave after Greece itself
stopped broadcasting on the sw bands), great literature read aloud,
new music releases by independent artists, some of the best vintage
music on any radio band, science and comedy. It avoided the political
and religious programming about which so many shortwave listeners love
to complain but which are also the bread and butter that keep most
private shortwave stations alive. The production standards were
frequently nearly public radio quality even when not sourced from
public radio. We also brought several new voices from around the world
onto the shortwave bands who had never been there before.

It was known from day one that its long term success would depend upon
attracting an adequate amount of both listener contributions and
program buyers outside of regular core hours.

Critically and artistically, Radio Angela was a great success, and
many thanks to all who gave us public and/or private support of any
kind. Financially, however, this has not proven to be viable. The
airtime buyers didn't come, and neither did enough donors.
Consequently, Radio Angela's last transmission as Radio Angela will be
May 31 (June 1 0200-0412 UTC).

Some individual programs are likely to continue in some form on the
WBCQ grid; my own individual flagship programs (From the Isle of Music
and Uncle Bill's Melting Pot) will be going on hiatus for a least a
month, possibly longer, on both 5130 and 7490, and my other shows will
be discontinued altogether. This is a purely financial matter, and if
we could find a nice wealthy philanthropist who loves shortwave,
perhaps this wouldn't need to happen.

This is hardly the first quality venture on radio or tv to end this
way - Radio Angela had more weekly broadcasts than the original Outer
Limits television series to name but one example, and the roads of
radio generally are littered with the corpses of worthy broadcasting
concepts and stillborn projects. My thanks to Angela and Allan Weiner
for going out on a limb and backing the project, to all the content
providers for their hard work and excellence, to the technical staff,
some of whom are no longer with us, and to those of you who cared that
we were on the air.

Those who lament the religious and political programming that keep
private shortwave stations alive are welcome to consider us a case
study in what is likely to happen without those dollars. I obviously
lack the right answer, but I have learned a great deal about the right
questions. 73,

How unfortunate. Of course that means no more WOR on 5130 at 0400 UT
Saturdays. Maybe some other convenient time can be found on that
frequency? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. `The Takeaway`, May 30 at 1806-19 UT via KOSU 91.7 and
various times on many other public radio stations: Melissa
Harris-Perry with restrospectives celebrating program and personal
accomplishments as canceled show is in its final week. I gather i.a.
she has been an LGBTQ+ activist. Finale should be Friday June 2 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. My first big sporadic-E FM DX opening of the year, May 30
from 2115 UT until I suspend at 2225 with some fadedowns after a lot
of Florida stations logged up to 105.9, many of them heard before.
DXMAP had showed 107 MHz MUF spike between here and FL to get me
going. And at 2230 it shows quite a nexus over Mississippi. Will take
a while to compile details, for my next report (Glenn Hauser, OK,

UNIDENTIFIED. 13550, May 30 at 0319-0323 and 0337-0344, amid CODAR
swirshes into Missouri SDR, NO Morse code IDs to be heard, contrary to
my expectation that they would fire every 20 minutes. At 0322 however
a quick data? burst which may have been an ID in some other form. At
0342 one long tone. Nothing after 0400, when CODAR itself has almost
faded out. Guess will require attentive monitoring over a whole hour,
or more.

13500, May 30 at 1518 I`m parked here closer to the center peak of
CODAR, 13445-13550 with 2X/sec pulses, only S6; and an ID does fire at
1522, thrice but again I can`t copy it beyond WR---- something. All
set for next one at 1542: no show. After that no CODAR anyway. Need to
get it recorded sometime (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Tuesday, May 30 2023

** CHINA. 9900.000, May 29 at 2313, UTwente gets a noisy open carrier
at S9, frequency precise, suspect Cairo, Portuguese service sked till
2330. But at 2316 a trace of talk emerges, in Chinese! So CNR1 jammer
vs RTI also sked at 22-24. And this goes off at 2400* sharp (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 15920, May 28 at 2210, CNR1 jammer at S0/S3 slightly
stronger than another one on 14920 among few sigs circum19mb. Both in
Aoki as jammed Sound of Hope frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 13840v, May 29 at 0543, talk in French mentioning Osaka;
trying to measure, I can hear it varying slightly in real time, at one
point on 13840.109. Typical behaviour of defective Issoudun
transmitter, and confirmed as such with NHK relay in French at
0530-0550 only (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GUAM. 15440, UT Sunday May 28 at 2207, AWR Wavescan with Ray about
Maldives, at S3/S5 one of better among few sigs on band. About same as
15770 WRMI, better than 15720 RNZP. This is KSDA as scheduled in
English on Sundays. Jose Jacob had not checked this daypart for which
frequencies might have survived Mawar. Earlier it had been reported
off; DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS amended as has the latest edition of Jose`s
KSDA Mawar monitoring (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTHERN MARIANA ISLANDS. Post-Mawar info from Ben Dawson, WA, May
``Glenn, It is reliably reported that one of the Tinian antennas
suffered a few broken reflector wires but that there are no other
reported issues. There are still antennas at Tinian that have to be
completely rebuilt as a result of typhoon Yutu in 2018. Saipan's have
all been restored. bfd`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 910 kHz, May 29 at 1910 UT, JBA signal into
only one of my rx and ant on daytime groundwave, no doubt KVIS,
Miamuh. I`m checking out for this on the IRCA iog: ``KVIS-910 Format?
May 27 #34276 Saw a report today that says KVIX is now C&W
from GOS/REL… anyone on the list able to confirm or deny it? Website
still has the “King’s Vision” logo but the steam doesn’t work.
73 Wayne Heinen N0POH, Editor, NRC AM Radio Log, Aurora, CO``

For the next dekaminute until 1920, I only hear music with segués -
maybe classic rock, but with praisy tinge? Not sure, all instrumental.
Anyway, unseems C&W. Also a SAH of almost 1 Hz or 56/minute. Other
station likely KATH[olic, EWTN], Frisco in north TX, U4 1000/500,
rather than KINA, Salina KS, U4 500/29 with Fox Sports Radio.
MWOffsets has only a KVIS reading as of 2018-01-23 of plus .0009 kHz,
i.e. almost 1 Hz high; so the QRMer would be either close on .0000 or
plus .002 kHz. I`ve certainly heard KVIS easily before, but a check
last night did not acquire it vs the QRM. My best chances will be
skywave before SS or after SR which UT in May are: 0115/1115; June,
0145/1100. Distance: 273 km/170 stmi. Direxional pattern for KVIS U3
1000/1000, i.e. same day and night is ENE/WSW so we are close to the
major lobe 68/248 degrees per FCC, but it`s tight so edging toward a
hope to have some results shortly, in time for next report (Glenn
Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785.009, May 29 at 2227, VOT not off the air in English,
S9+45/50 into UTwente, with a ``new program``, i.e. ``the conquering
of the city of Constantinople, capital of the Byzantine Empire, by the
troops of the Ottoman Sultan Mehmed the Conqueror on 29 May 1453.
Wikipedia`` but it lasted only one minute until 2228. Later at
2246-2251, `Feeling Supreme/The Healing Spring`` about insulin
resistance. Off the air before 2300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13565 CW, May 29 at 0540, K6FRC IDs only over and over JBA,
HIFER beacon at Patterson CA, claiming only 1.8 milliwatts, so any log
of it significant; vs CODAR QRM, see also UNIDENTIFIED (Glenn Hauser,

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2192 monitoring: ``From: Richard
Lemke, St. Albert, Alberta, Canada, the desk of Richard’s listening

(Lemke, Richard -AB)``

Also confirmed Sunday May 28 at 2000 on IRRS SW via AM Italia, 1323
kHz, S9+10 into nearby Noale SDR, lite QRM. This week *not* cutting
off last 5 minutes but complete to 2029, immediately followed by
opening of `Counterspin` for a bit before it`s chopped off for ID and
then 2030 `AWR Wavescan #743`

WOR 2192 also confirmed UT Monday May 29 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, S8/9+10
into Louisiana SDR but first 14 seconds blasted away by external noise
burst starting at exactly same time. If only the 0030:00 7780 airings
could start later at 0030:30 like the ones at 2230:30!

Also confirmed UT Monday May 29 at 0300 on WBCQ Area 51, S7/S9 on 6160
-67 Hz = 6159.933 into Maryland SDR, on time since this fortnight, JL
gotta go by 0259.

** U S A. 7490-, Sunday May 28 at 2200, NO signal direct, not even a
JBA carrier from WBCQ for `UBMP`. Is it even on the air? It is by 2248
when I check via Maryland SDR. Propagation has been pitiful tho SF and
K-index numbers seem moderate, but there have been and shall be
blackouts. Anyway, needs to be on higher band summer daypaths - but
not too high. Even the SuperStition on 9330 is VP altho probably not
aiming thisaway (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13550, May 29 at 0542, I happen to be here during a
routine bandscan where there is CODAR swirshing at the rate of 2X per
second, when suddenly I hear Morse code --- not pure CW tonality but
diffuse, starts with WR----, so another CODAR ID. Wish I could copy,
but too fast by surprise and only twice?

I suspect same pattern like before as explored in great detail last
February, per: https://www.w4uvh.net/ghlogs_2023_0209_0216.txt
with linx for searching, a full call was traced to the MS/AL/FL Gulf
``CODAR CW ID copied on 4752+ kHz exactly every icosaminute, twice at
:03, :23, :43 past the hours, WRPW597``

So I`m back on 13550 by 0602, and barely perceive a trace of another
ID burst but uncopiable. No doubt we can eventually get it by
monitoring at :02, :22 and :42 past the hours. It may be audible over
a broader range than 13550 only; CODAR expanse at 0542 was approx.
13435-13565. Another check at 1522, weak CODAR and no ID heard altho
maybe tuned in a few seconds too late. Also a JBA carrier on 13550,
one of countless ChiCom jammer frequencies against Sound of Hope.
Probably there are more CODAR IDs out there on other ranges going
unnoticed (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Sunday, May 28 2023



** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, Sat May 27 circa 2100, no signal direct
from LRA36, no surprise, but neither into Argentine nor Brazilian
remotes at 2146 chex. Later I see that Manuel Méndez, Spain did hear
it but only at *2022-2038* and perhaps never resumed this time (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11760 >>// 15140, Sunday May 28 at 1504, RHC with
late-starting weekly Esperanto, and extra 15230 has been turned off
already; perpetual totally wrong schedule announced as 0800 on 6100
tho all frequenncies off before real summer time of 0700 UT; 1600
instead of correct 1500, as if on 11760 only; and 2?30 on 15730, an
RHC frequency abandoned years ago as the third airing of Esperanto
could show up on any half-hour around there on any frequency.
Esperantists are clueless about their own real schedule. The guy also
continues to mispronounce ``politiko`` stressing the first i as if
were still Spanish, instead of second i as absolutely required
penultimately Esperantoly. Something`s always wronge at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GUAM. 15670, Sunday May 28 at 1542, AWR Wavescan as sked on KSDA,
Jeff interviewing someone from RBA in Sydney: and 15680 in Kannada is
also on with S Asian music. So unless a substitute site, AWR already
have two transmitters running instead of one following Typhoon Mawar.
Still no 15615, the third one scheduled, in Gujarati. See
https://qsl.net/vu2jos/KSDA_Mawar.pdf (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** IRAN. 9855 > 9835, Sun May 28 at 1950, VIRI English with mailbag,
but very thinly undermodulated on both into UTwente (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** KOREA NORTH. 11710, May 28 at 1511, VOK in English to us is good
S9/+10 with `news` about children`s nutrition, as if they cared; 1513
ending with caster giving his/a name, ID as ``VOK, Voice of Korear``
and into a sweet/saccharine song, ``Our Father`` -- guess who? Not the
One in heaven (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SINGAPORE. 12025, May 28 at 1510, BBCWS in English, S7/S9, best for
us now tho aimed for Asia, site as listed. Rumors have been flying
that BBC are about to close down this relay, starting with WRTH on
disgraced FB. WOR iog discussion that it`s already operating way below
capacity, sometimes on wrong frequency.

Stephen Luce, Houston, Texas, reports: ``I found the Facebook thread
with the Singapore relay closure discussion. It appears someone at the
Oman relay station is saying that Kranji will be closed in July. No
further details at this writing. The 13 degree East Asia beam from
Kranji has always done well in the central part of North America, so
any replacement site will likely not be favorable for us, not that we
are a target, anyway`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785.009, May 27 at 2200, VOT English is not off the air
into UTwente but S9+30/45. Usual hefty modulation and thick accents,
but no time to listen today, rather OETA ONR = Oklahoma News Report
starting with OETA`s own salvation from the veto of evil governor
Stitt, overridden by sane Republicans (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2192 monitoring. Confirmed Saturday
May 27 as the only WRMI airing starting at half past half past the
hours: 2230:30 and on all three frequencies: 7730, S8/S9 into Maryland
SDR; 15770, S9/+10 into UTwente; and 5850, almost synchronized via
different remotes.

Also confirmed UT Saturday May 27 at 2346 in progress on
NEXUS/IBA/IPAR webcast where scheduled at 0130 CEDT Sundays, but as
usual it`s about 3 minutes late getting to the mid-break since they
really insert Feature Story News first contrary to sked at 2330-2333;
which means my last two minutes are lost, since even prolonged beyond
2359 to 2400 when there are two fadedowns before gone and replaced by:
fill music!

Also confirmed UT Sunday May 28 at 0054 the 0030 on WRMI 7780, S9/+10
and noisy into Louisiana SDR.

Also confirmed UT Sunday May 28 starting at 0320 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM,
MO, S9+15/20 into nearby SDR, with nearby storm crashes.

** GUAM. Re KTWR missing all frequencies since Mawar, John the VORW
reports to WOR iog: ``I found this on the TWR Facebook Page - in
regards to the status of KTWR, it reads as follows:

"Typhoon Mawar has left the Pacific island of Guam, and as we’ve
shared previously, TWR staff and their families stayed safe.

However, damage to the facilities of KTWR, our shortwave station on
the island, was worse than originally believed, and members of our TWR
family on Guam are in the midst of a difficult situation. Challenging
days lie ahead, and your prayer support is greatly needed.

Grant Hodgins, station director at KTWR, and two key members of the
team were able to reach the station on Thursday morning. Although it
was still too windy for a close inspection, it was apparent that all
five of our antennas sustained damage, Hodgens reported.

KTWR uses shortwave signals to reach a large swath of Asia with the
gospel message, and because of the nature of shortwave, the programs
are aired at night. But for the third night in a row, KTWR was unable
to broadcast on Thursday night.

The team planned to regather at 9 a.m. Friday – 7 p.m. Thursday in the
Eastern U.S. – to determine next steps. A key issue will be Antenna 1,
which is a total loss, Hodgins said.

The families of TWR personnel are all accounted for and are doing
okay. Still, most have no power or water. Staff on Thursday were
focused primarily on caring for their families.

To be sure, the impact could have been much worse. As the typhoon
approached Guam, the southern section that includes KTWR was in line
for a direct hit. We asked for prayer, you responded, and we watched
in wonder as our Father pushed the storm northward at the last minute.
We sustained a glancing blow instead of a direct hit.

But a glancing blow from a Category 4 storm is a serious matter.
Please continue to be in prayer for our TWR family on Guam and the
173,000 residents of the island, all of whom have been affected.
Please also pray that we’ll soon be able to resume programming to the
listeners across Asia for whom TWR is a spiritual lifeline."

doing some final tests now before going on air. need to make sure

He was originally going to use 4 MHz, which I said would be pointless
due to the poor range (he was barely heard when he was using 4015

doesn’t have a transmitter for that frequency right now. He changed
his station name to Kawaii FM (FMのかわいい) and the new format will be

** OKLAHOMA. Re: [WOR] Lawmakers Override Gov. Stitt's Veto, Extend
OETA Contract
--- another version:


``Veto overrides save OETA, tribal regalia rights
Janelle Stecklein | CNHI Oklahoma 3 hrs ago

OKLAHOMA CITY — Oklahoma lawmakers overrode 13 of the governor’s
vetoes on Thursday, including those dealing with tribal regalia and
the state’s lone public television station.

Lawmakers noted they had a smorgasbord of bills to choose from, as
Gov. Kevin Stitt had been unusually heavy-handed with his vetoes,
already rejecting 46 pieces of legislation as of Thursday morning.

Legislators were able to garner enough support in both chambers to
override 13 of those vetoes, turning the legislation into law. After
their vetoes, among other things, Oklahomans will have:

• Continued access to OETA, the state’s public broadcaster, which was
at risk of closure after Stitt questioned the long-term strategic
value of the station.

• A state name, image and likeness (NIL) law for collegiate athletes
and universities.

• New protections in law for Native students who want to wear tribal
regalia at public school graduation ceremonies.

• University of Kansas license plates.

• A new makeup of the state’s turnpike authority oversight board.

Many other pieces of legislation made it partway through the veto
process. Lawmakers theoretically could consider addition overrides on
the final day of session Friday as they pass legislation finalizing
the state’s budget.

State Sen. Casey Murdock, R-Felt, said two of his bills were victims
of the political process. He was pushing to overturn Stitt’s vetoes
related to invasive species and protective orders for children.

“It’s not a fun task to override a governor’s veto,” Murdock said. “I
don’t take any pleasure in having to make this vote. I do it solemnly,
but it needed to happen.”

He said having to correct the mistakes made by another Republican is
not fun.

“Usually in the end, we make the right decisions here,” he said.

Choctaw Nation Chief Gary Batton celebrated the Legislature’s veto
override of Senate Bill 429, which enshrines into law Native students’
right to wear tribal regalia at graduation ceremonies.

“This measure should not have been controversial,” he said in a
statement. “It has no costs for schools and expands students’ rights
to honor their heritage. We look forward to seeing members of our
tribe and others honor their heritage at important moments in their

State Rep. Trish Ranson, D-Stillwater, said 46 Stitt vetoes this year
seems like a lot, but some were related to budget fights and were
“another example of the dysfunctional supermajority that (we have)
going on.”

House legislators Thursday let stand most of the 20 vetoes Stitt made
on fellow Republicans’ bills after he became frustrated by their lack
of action on his tax and education priorities.

State Rep. Kevin McDugle, R-Broken Arrow, said the governor understood
a lot of his vetoes related to the budget fight would be overridden,
but they left House members confused over whether Stitt thought the
legislation was sound policy.

“The difficult thing when that’s done in this process is, you really
don’t know what he really wanted to override and what he didn’t,”
McDugle said. “So it makes it a little bit difficult to try and
decipher that when there’s so many of them.”

Support local journalism.``

{related: note that appointed by Stitt, Supt. Ryan Walters, who has
been making a lot of enemies, even among Republicans, by his extremist
views and axions, ex-officio sits on the OETA board. Since Stitt`s
veto, we noticed that OETA stepped up its self-promotion without
directly confronting Stitt -- gh}

``Education video prompts outrage, tears among educators
Janelle Stecklein | CNHI Oklahoma 6 hrs ago


OKLAHOMA CITY — Teachers fled a state meeting in tears and stood in a
hallway shaking and crying after the state superintendent Thursday,
May 25, 2023, unveiled a “propaganda” video that educators viewed as a
threat to their safety and livelihoods.

Superintendent Ryan Walters’ team later sent the media a link to the
full video and posted it to the state Department of Education website,
but then swiftly barred everyone from viewing it by setting it to
private. Walters’ team promised to send a “fresh version,” but over
two hours later, the video remained unavailable.

State education officials also aired an abridged version of the
several minutes-long video at the monthly state Board of Education
meeting, but inexplicably muted the audio for those trying to watch
the at-capacity meeting remotely.

The video features Fox News interviews of Walters discussing teachers
and teacher unions interspersed with a randomly selected mix of
National Education Association speaker clips. It included interviews
with people, whom educators didn’t think were from Oklahoma, and talk
of “The Young Adult Experience,” as well as blurred graphic and
pornographic images.

It ends with the message: “We can save education. Our kids are
counting on it.”

“There were tears,” said Allyson Helm, an Oklahoma City Public Schools
teacher who attended the meeting. “People were shaking and devastated
by these remarks. And it is nothing less than propaganda. It reminds
me of a wartime propaganda video.”

Helm, a registered Republican voter, said State Department of
Education officials tried to draw an insulting correlation between
pedophiles and pornography and educators, she said.

“I taught anatomy and physiology and high school biology for 10 years,
and I didn’t talk about sex as much as these people at the State
Department (of Education) do,” she said.

She also said Walters appeared to be attempting to indoctrinate the
public to his views.

Walters did not respond to a request for comment about whether it was
appropriate to use state resources to make the video or if it was
intended to make educators and parents feel unsafe.

Ashley Daly, a parent of a Tulsa Public Schools first-grader, said the
video was “very upsetting.”

“It made me worry that there are some people who are already feeling
upset, (and) it’ll radicalize them and maybe make them do something
really dangerous in our schools,” she said. “Our schools aren’t full
of the awful people that Ryan Walters makes them sound like they

She said it’s “terrifying as a parent” that Walters is using rhetoric
that could cause someone to shoot children or teachers, when he’s
supposed to be caring for and protecting them.

Daly, who attended the public meeting, said 90% of Oklahomans send
their children to public schools, and if parents really thought
teachers were “terrorists or pedophiles,” they wouldn’t send their
children there.

Jami Jackson-Cole, a Duncan Public Schools teacher, said she started
crying part way through the video because her first thought was “this
is fixin’ to get someone killed.” She said the video was beyond
outrageous and indicated that Walters is “coming after teachers.”

“There’s no doubt in my mind that if you’re not falling right along in
line with everything he says, he’s coming to get ya,” said
Jackson-Cole. “And we can’t have that. We are in a teacher shortage
right now.”

She was so upset she left the meeting room, then encountered more
teachers outside, also crying. They told her, “It is putting a target
on us.”

“There’s enough crazy people in this world,” Jackson-Cole said. “We
don’t need that. So it was beyond vile and reproach. Just horrible.”

State Rep. Mark McBride, R-Moore, said he watched a little bit of the
video after people contacted him outraged, but hadn’t been able to
finish it. Walters already had set it to private.

“You just can’t go around calling people terrorists and things like
that,” he said. “I think that (with) this conduct we’re losing that
professionalism in all of this. The hatred, the fear mongering that
goes along with all this is just not the way we should be doing

Support local journalism.``

Greg Hardison, CA, comments: ``Judging by this list of issues, I would
surmise this Gov. Stitt either has the brains of a tennis ball, or in
my untrained opinion, has some serious personal problems to work out,
preferably somewhere other than the state's constituency. How and why
do these lousy excuses for human beings continue to be elected to
power?`` (via gh, Enid, WOR)
