Hi Glenn, my latest Hitlist update:

1) Brazil - R Transmundial: Added links for this station
2) France - RFI: Update link to RFI English home page
3) Indonesia - RRI: Updated all links (Thanks to Mickey Delmage in
WOR-iog). Next update mid/late July 2018.
Best wishes and 73 (Alan Roe, UK, June 17, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 11640, Sunday June 17 at 1313, solo violin classical music, presumably Bach, on CNR1`s Sunday evening western cultural hour. Here to jam Taiwan, unheard. Easily recognizable, so I search for many //s, all! of them as jammers: 15110 under VOA Thailand, usual heavy mix, 15040 alone vs India, 13690 vs VOA Saipan, 11785 under VOA Philippines, 11540 vs RFA Tibetan via Kuwait, 9680 vs Taiwan, 9660 mixture with Taiwan. Clear 11640 and 15040 are best (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. Slight correxion to the last time mentioned: 08 not 09 UT:

11760, June 16 at 1402, RHC is well modulated here, with plug for 13th Festival Internacional de Coros, 26-30 junio en La Habana; no, not a tribute to Arnie`s family, but choral performances with some nice classical music bits. 1403 opening `Cartas a la RedacciÃn` which is not a mailbag: its announced times are Sat 10 am and 11 pm, Sunday 4 am always Cuban time = Sat 14, UT Sun 03 & 08, the latter when no SW transmitters should be on air (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** FRANCE. 11730, June 17 at 0556 check, NHK 0530 French relay is still modulating OK. Will report again only if we catch it re-buzzing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 90.5, June 17 at 1916 UT, KGVV Goltry with Jesus praise music but modulation cuts out for a split second about 23 times per minute. // 98.5, K253BC, Enid is not doing this. Both supposed to originate with ``My Praise FM``, 88.7 KLVV Ponca City, also audible here, but *not* //. With newish 14 kW from nearby Goltry, KGVV has Enid within its local coverage contour, making the translator in Enid unnecessary, but they are not about to give it up and possiblize slightly more diverse programming on the FM band (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1934 monitoring: Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria reports:

``GERMANY No signal of World of Radio via HLR on 6190/9485 CUSB, June 16-17 [all: GOH 001 kW / 230 deg to CeEu]:

WOR 1934 confirmed Sunday June 17 after 1900 on WRMI 9395, poor. Next:
Sun 2330 WBCQ 9330v to WSW [maybe]
Mon 0130.5 WRMI 5850 to NW, 7780 to NE

Tue 2130 WRMI 7780 to NE, 5950 to WNW [or #1935?]

Full schedule for WOR on all outlets, not just SW; podcast linx:

** U S A. 5085, UT Sunday June 17 at 0500, WTWW-2 still on with music, ID; 0506.5 switch to network feed with dropouts, another minute of music prÃlude, 0507.5 opening `Southern Talk at the Midnight`, long intro to tonight`s subject: ghosts. Unlike last week, and earlier tonight, nothing now audible on 15809.9, WTWW-3 nor at 0555, so either off or has ceased to propagate with no sporadic E.

Host tends to mumble; sure thought he said ``at the``, but finally found the website as ``in the``, neither making very good sense:

which forwards to:

Dave Fluee (as really spelt) does not know the difference between CDT and CST. It starts at midnight ``CST`` or 10 pm ``PST``. Only on the sponsorship/sales page does it mention being two hours long. No physical or postal address can be found on website. Apparently has been going since at least February, but only recently added WTWW.

Motto is: ``From Science to Pseudoscience. And Conspiracies to Paranormal. SOUTHERN TALK IN THE MIDNIGHT --- Talk about: Ghosts, Hauntings, Conspiracies, Science, Area 51 and many many more topics too long to list. Conspiracy theory-themed Talk Program``

``From the great south east``, on WTWW 5085 (only) and apparently has only one other affiliate, in California, KCAA, on 1050, 102.3 and 106.5. Like, where? 1050, Loma Linda, 35 watts at night! But it webcasts. 102.3 is K272FQ in Riverside with 50 watts. 106.5 is K293CT, in Moreno Valley with 70 watts. LL is north of Riverside, MV is a suburb east.

Is there anything about this at http://wtww.us ? --- of course not! But still displays long-outdated info as if really broadcasting on 9930 in the afternoons with Dave Ramsey M-F, Bob Heil Saturdays.

I have seen no other log reports of STITM, and I am certainly not promoting this wacky show, a waste of time, not my teacup.

15809.911, Sunday June 17 at 1748 check, WTWW-3 is back on but quite weak, much less than neighbor 15825 WWCR. Am pretty sure talk program is // 9475 SFAW as to be expected at this hour, somebody talking / preaching off-mike which does not help. 9475 is also unusually weak, only S9. But at 1758*, 15810- is off and gone (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Follow-up to previous report about `Rockphesy` program:

Alan Gale, England, had reported it May 21 at 0100-0130 Monday on 7780 just before WOR: ``I was curious to see what the 'Rockphesy' programme was about, mostly rock music, but with some Christian messages and quite a few adverts, not the usual 'Bible Basher' type programme, and quite listenable for a change.``

`Rockphesy` is still on the WRMI System C 9955 schedule for Sunday 9:30 pm EDT â that`s on this page: http://www.tinyurl.com/WRMIfqs
My previous search was on the original separate 9955 schedule at http://www.tinyurl.com/WRMI9955 which apparently has not been updated

And it`s also still on the WRMI System D schedule for UT Monday 0130 on 7780 and 5850; adding up to a trimulcast. Have not heard it myself, but I suppose name almost rhyme with ``prophesy``, another clue, or is it ``prophecy``? But then should be spelt with a C (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Re previous report about WINB in DRM on 15665-15670-15675:
``What *is* the spoken programming in DRM?``

Don't be surprised how it sounds: The bitrate is lower than on a standard cellphone call (Kai Ludwig, WOR iog via DXLD)

This clip is `Living the Bible`, with that Japo-Mississippian gospel huxtress, way down in a barrel (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report despatched at 1947 UT June 17

Sunday, June 17 2018

** CUBA. 15140, June 16 at 1944, RHC English is S8-S9 but dead air, or just barely modulated.

11860, June 16 at 1949, RHC European service is also JBM. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. 13839.955 approx., June 17 at 0054, RNZI is about the OSOB, and slightly off-frequency, maybe signature of the backup transmitter? Others have seemed a bit off, but not bothered to measure as I expect to from now on. BTW, Dan Sheedy had RNZI on 9700 instead of 5980 at 1401 June 16, as I did on June 13, but not every day (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6930-USB, June 17 at 0124, pirate with Alan Sherman`s ``Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah``, then ``Monster Mash``, both before wild audiences. S9 vs noise level about S7. Many logs here say it was Underground Radio, especially on the SSTV images:
For a Saturday night, not much activity: earlier pirate bandscans this session circa 0040 and 0111 I heard none (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 15520, June 16 at 1945, REE is dead air or JBM; while 17855 is S9+10 with interview, not game (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15730, June 16 at 1946, S9/S9+10 of dead air from VOA GB. In this case it`s just warming up for the 2000 French to Africa; but is burning 250 kW for an extra 14+ minutes really necessary? If so might as well modulate it with something at least disposable, or bonus. 2023 with soul music; godforbid VOA should ever play a note of classical (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1934 monitoring: confirmed Saturday June 16 at 2327 the 2300 on WRMI 7780, very poor. Also confirmed UT Sunday June 17 at 0223 the 0200 on WRMI 7780, also very poor. Aimed NE, I sure hope these are doing much better along the east coast, even Europe. Also confirmed UT Sunday June 17 at 0401, fair on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO, about 14 minutes into show, so started late circa 0347. Next:
Sun 1030 HLR 9485-CUSB to WSW
Sun 1900 WRMI 9395 to NNW
Sun 2330 WBCQ 9330v to WSW [maybe]
Mon 0130.5 WRMI 5850 to NW, 7780 to NE

Full schedule for WOR on all outlets, not just SW; podcast linx:

** U S A. 15809.9, June 17 at 0058, bandscanning up the 15 MHz band I have almost concluded it`s NoSOB --- no stations on band until I hit this bigsig of S9+25! Like last Saturday night, WTWW-3 is active again and // WTWW-2 on 5085, S9+35 with rock music. But 15809.9 sounds awful, lo-fi, distorted, compared to 5085, and modulation level is chopping down and up. 0059 ``WTWW`` singing ID, unlegal as call letters only. Then another tune; 5085 is also slightly distorted. 0104 finally full legal ID, and into `Theater Organ in the Ozarx`, as Bob Heil again claims to be ``live``, and a ``new format, a little different than before`` --- I guess that means less talk, more music as his next announcement does not come until 0117. This week he`s performing on an Alun/Alan/Allan/Allen/Allyn Organ with three keyboards, and employing a number of sounds not found on theater organs. Now 15809.9 modulation has improved, but level still cutting down and up. Presumably both will still be on 0500+ for `Southern Talk at Midnight` until at least 0700.

As for this lone signal on 19m, no doubt it`s by sporadic E, and may very well be the only broadcaster in the entire Western Hemisphere active on the band at this hour; while those active in daytime Asia are simply not propagating by ordinary F-layer. And we *know* there are none in the south Pacific, with NZ now down on 13840- (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5050, UT Sunday June 17 at 0102, while tuned for 5085 WTWW, just in time I remember also to check for WWRB, hearing only a bigsig carrier with some squeals before it cuts off, anyhow confirming WWRB was on tonight. How about UT Monday and Tuesday like it used to be on 90m? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11905, June 17 at 0051, VP S-0.5 with flutter, South Asian? music. But gone at 0100, and nothing at 0114-0116 when one expects to hear SLBC from *0115v. HFCC, EiBi and Aoki show nothing before 0100 (and HFCC doesn`t show SLBC at all). But all have CNR6 southward from Beijing in Amoy starting at 0100 --- I have *never* heard any sign of that when checking for SLBC circa 0115. Very strange. Possibly: what I heard was SLBC pre-checking but failing to come back on at normal time; or a major schedule change (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 11900, June 16 at 1406, CNR1 echo-jamming. Victim is: VOA Philippines in Chinese, this hour only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) see also EAST TURKISTAN; CUBA

** CUBA. 13700, June 16 at 1330, RHC undermodulated, much softer than // 13740, and 13700 also noticeably weaker signal. At least no spurs today. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

13700, June 16 at 1400 is still JBM; and 13740 is dead air from only one transmitter. Not until 1404:09 does modulation cut on from China Plus in English. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba.

11760, June 16 at 1402, RHC is well modulated here, with plug for 13th Festival Internacional de Coros, 26-30 junio en La Habana; no, not a tribute to Arnie`s family, but choral performances with some nice classical music bits. 1403 opening `Cartas a la RedacciÃn` which is not a mailbag: its announced times are Sat 10 am and 11 pm, Sunday 4 am always Cuban time = Sat 14, UT Sun 03 & 09, the latter when no SW transmitters should be on air (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 15590, fair June 16 at 1334, something in American English; therefore, it must be China Plus: yes, // 9570 via Cuba, and 15590 is CRI, Urumqi at 12-15 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** FRANCE. 11730, June 16 at 0549, for the second night, NHK relay is buzzless, modulation OK. Need to keep checking whether it resume (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 17855, Saturday June 16 at 1413, REE is poor to North America, only S7-S4, playing music, even worse on // 15520. There`s got to be a silly ballgame from Moskva right now airing worldwide, but REE must not have rights to it; and surely no local football games available to compete with it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TAJIKISTAN. 15745, June 16 at 1333, talk in unID language, poor with flutter, and carrier is also wobbling. NDXC/Aoki shows RFA Tibetan via Dushanbe at 11-14. Presumably any jamming would achieve a stabler signal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UGANDA [non]. 9370, Saturday June 16 at 1409, still no signal from R. Munansi via WWRB, also missing last weekend. Nor on 15240. At 1508 I try UTwente SDR: 9370 has VP signal in somelang, but not this; rather, VOA Burmese via Thailand at 1430-1530. 15240 only splash from 15245, while 15240 here bears a JBA carrier not off-frequency-minus like WWRB. If it were WWRB, this too would be inbooming like sporadic-E neighbor 15825 WWCR.

Nothing scheduled on 15240 this hour, but would you believe that HFCC A-18 still has an entry from Radio Ukraine International in Ukr and Eng at 14-15, via Simferopol`? O, it`s ``reserv``, so in case of a comeback? DHYB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1934 monitoring: not confirmed the Saturday June 16 1431 on HLR 6190-CUSB: UTwente has nothin` but noise at 1446 and 1459 chex. And Alan Gale, UK, reports on the same:

``Hi Glenn, Not a thing heard on 6190 kHz today, other than the usual annoying heterodyne, but I wasn't able to see if World of Radio faded in again during the final 10 minutes as we had a nasty thunderstorm at 1440 UT, so the radio was off and all the aerials grounded here for the final 20 minutes. 6 MHz has seemed very flat during the afternoons recently, so I wasn't that hopeful of hearing anything anyway. Alan``

Full schedule for WOR on all outlets, not just SW; podcast linx:

** U S A. 5950 // 9395, June 16 at 0556, WRMI Oldies on both. A few minutes earlier had VOA News relay. Skedgrid shows these two match Oldies only at 0500-0800 & 2300-2330 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 13845, June 16 at 1329, S9+20 of dead air except for some hum, from WWCR-3. I leave a radio on here while I am breaking my non-Ramadan fast, and beyond --- still dead at 1359, 1413, 1536+. Supposed to be nothing but so-called University Network Saturdays 12-24 UT unlike programming otherdays with not quite so much of that.

2+ hours of wasted 100 kW and probably much more to follow. Not that anyone in his right mind would really want to hear DGS or PMS, but yet another example of failing SW station management: turn it on and forget it, let the computers mis-handle it, don`t bother to monitor own signal or set up a silence-sensor alarum. Will PMS get a refund? She`s not listening, either. Of course the lack of programming could be her fault from the LA satfeed. No Anguilla on 11775 to compare.

BTW, the bigsig here and on S9+20/30, 15825 modulating OK are due to summertime sporadic E/short skip on HF if not VHF. At 1630, PMS is back on 13845, maybe earlier as signal has faded way down (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9265V, June 16 at 1408, WINB is already on this Saturday from *1330, vs scheduled *2000 M-F, with very wobbling carrier. Sign-on time keeps shifting according to quantity of program bookings, and WINB does amazingly well with such a crummy signal. Most of their clients probably never try to hear themselves, proceeding on Faith.

Also, I have been wondering if anyone has heard the alleged DRM tests from WINB, M-F 11-17 on 15665-15670-15675? Nothing obvious about it on WINB homepage. There is some discussion of that in the drmna yg, and drmnainfo.blogspot, but not about the programming (and nothing scheduled on 9265 that early weekdays), rather about part of the DRM signal apparently being encrypted data. What *is* the spoken programming in DRM? Surely more gospel-huxtering.

Kim Elliott adds on the WOR iog June 16: ``Using SDRs in southern Europe, I've been hearing it on 15670 after 1100 UT (Mon-Fri) sign-on. The audio will decode for a few seconds at a time. Later in the day WINB is audible through SDRs in the USA, with audio occasionally lasting for longer stretches. I am using Dream software with KiwiSDRs. This can be done, but it requires multiple steps that I can explain later. Reception through standalone DRM receivers might be better, though I'm not sure why. Kim``

BTW, while I have the WINB program sked up, I look thru every line for any title seemingly secular: the *only* one is: Jazzify-Rockphesy Sat-10:30PM ET = UT Sunday 0230. The hotlinx to this and other programs are 404, but audio on demand to some. In the case of Jazzify-Rockphesy, the 58:12 file is nothing but dead air/noise only! Another automation failure. Seems like I`ve seen that title on some other station, WRMI? But unfound now.

Web search on that unique name gets only 4 G-hits, including:
which abottom shows 10:30 pm EDT Sat on WINB 9265 --- AND: Sunday night at 9:30 pm EDT on WRMI 9955. Jazzify is on WINB at 0230 [UT Sunday], and Rockphesy follows at 0300, while WRMI has only Rockphesy --- but WRMI program skedgrid now shows Wavescan at 0130 UT Monday on 9955.

The sparse website, no hint as to physical location, has a Gallery page with nothing to see except linx to sample programs,
but also a dead giveaway it is NOT secular, with ``Song or Prayer Requests`` --- so, never mind. WINB does occasionally book special airings of music programs, pseudo-pirates from Europe (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Saturday, June 16 2018

** BRAZIL. 11780, June 15 at 1939, S2-S3 yelling in Brazuguese, so RNA is on earlier than usual *2100v. Maybe a silly ballgame from Russia? No problem, no signal from 11775 adjacent Anguilla (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 9180, June 15 at 1227, CNR1 song, and 2 seconds ahead of // 11500. Aoki/NDXC shows both as *jammed Sound of Hope, Taiwan frequencies: 11499.933 and 9180.018 exactly. I can tell there is a second carrier on 9180 making a slight beat (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** FRANCE. 11730, June 15 at 0540, NHK French via Issoudun is clear, no buzz! At S5-S9, just with some ACI from much stronger 11725 RNZI. Perhaps TDF saw my scathing comments in previous June 13 log? Or just a fluke? Time will tell (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 17, June 15 at 1430 UT, K17JN-D, 3ABN satellator, Enid, is off the air again.

RF 23, June 15 at 1430 UT, KSBI ``52`` OKC, is still low-powered not breaking into decoding via my antennas, ``bad`` signal bar (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 88.3, K202BY, Family Radio satellator in Enid is still left-channel only in semi-stereo, June 15 at 2305 UT check.

94.3, KLGB-LP, Enid, however, has resumed full stereo for its gospel rock music (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TAIWAN. 11985, June 15 at 1224, pop song in Chinese?, VG S9+20, and not // 11500 et al. CNR1 jamming, so 11985 is really RTI during this hour. Listening closely during a low passage or pause, I can also hear CNR1 underneath (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U A E [and non]. 15640, June 15 at 1929, poor music, but cuts off at 1929.5*. Aoki/NDXC shows 1900-1930 M-F is VOA Tigrinya via UAE. The primary language for Ethiopia, Amharic at 1800-1900 is daily on 15640 but via Woofferton, UK. Also tacked on before that on weekdays at 1730-1800 is Oromo, also Woofferton. Not much activity on band, but RRI Spanish continues weakly on 15670 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7570, June 15 at 0129, surprised to find this WRMIBS frequency off, but tuning back across at 0130, it`s back on. No telling how long it had been off. Meanwhile TOMBS on 7730 continued unabated (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. 5950, June 15 at 0549, WRMI is S9+10 of dead air. It seems this is happening more and more; computer automation uncoÃperative?

Also, how is Voice of Tigray Revolution, Ethiopia, doing on 5950 vs WRMI from 0255? The only other nighttime competitor per Aoki/NDXC is Iran in Tajik at 0050-0220. But it also attempts to show every single program on WRMI 5950, including the long-deleted World of Radio Wednesdays at 1415! That was the winter timing when it was on 9955 and consequently duplicated on 9455 before that was replaced by 5950 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. (7490), UT Sat June 16 from 0000, I monitor the first semihour of `Allan Weiner Worldwide`, on webcast. Notes from his monolog: quadri-casting again tonight, 7490, 9330, 5130 and experimentally on 3265. 3265 is on aux transmitter as main one is down while the plenum is being redesigned. Very old fibreglass in the plenum becomes explosive, as they learned when previous transmitters burned up. Replacement transmitter is in place but not ready for use yet. 3265 is #5 transmitter.

The super-station 500 kW transmitter: looks like it will be a year from now before it is on air; due to various delays by vendors, etc., and cost overruns. (Despite detailed 24/7 language schedule on 9330 already publicized effective S-18 in September.) It`s designated #6 transmitter, for World`s Last Chance ministry; much like The Overcomer. #6 will be ``pretty much exclusive`` for them but also some time for other WBCQ programs. 250 WLC programs are already in the can, good stuff, hi-quality bible teaching in multiple languages.

Allan emphasizes that he wants the 500 kW to be available to the US government in case of national emergency. As Dr Becker says, ``no guerrilla engineering`` on this one; everything is being done professionally, by the book. There are other 500 kW SW in USA, but at reduced power, and to fixed antennas. This will be the only rotatable antenna in USA, capable of aiming anywhere in the world. W.L.C. is paying for it, but will be owned and licensed to Allan.

WBCQ is one of the most X-rated broadcast stations in the world, e.g. Johnny Lightning, but AW likes it that way in service of Free Speech.

Asks someone off mike what the 9 pm (0100 UT) special on 5130 is? Haiko(??) Music from Germany. Must be sure to switch programming on that frequency when the time comes.

FM translator of the AM 780 will be on 98.3 with 200 watts, on 400 foot tower.

At 0030 he starts praising Trump and Jesus, so on to other things here; recheck webcast at 0118, he`s still going, advocating legal pot, but finished before 0130 when Blalock is Blasting.

Now to John H Carver, Jr., for his version:

``Show started on time this evening. Listening on 7490. Again they're broadcasting on 7490, 5130, 9330 and 3265. 5130 will be leaving AWWW at 9:00 for a new European music program. 3265 is on its backup transmitter this evening as there are still some problems with the plenum on the original transmitter. They've been doing general work this week on the other transmitters. Replacing tubes, tightening bolts etc. The WRUL transmitter from WRMI is in place in the transmitter [space] but still needs a total rebuild and Allan and Tim will be working on that as time permits.

Allan mentioned that there may be room on the super station for other WBCQ programs but not completely sure about that. He stated again that the government could have access to the super station in case of natural disaster or national security.

Allan, Angela and Robert in the studio this evening. Robert is there for the changeover of 5130 at nine. Some talk of wanting to get President Trump up to the station for the dedication of the super station but Allan admitted that it was very unlikely. Also some comments about new programmers calling to inquire about rates and such including a man that wants to do a business oriented program.

Then Allan stated he would have control over what was broadcast over the new super station and that the flat earthers would be paying a fee to broadcast over WBCQ. Strange statement out of left field. [I don`t think AW himself refers to his benefactors as flat-earthers â gh]

Talk again about AM and FM radio continuing the discussion from last week and this theme would pop up throughout the rest of the show. Also talk about a four hour visit by two old radio engineers this week and how Allan gave them the tour of the facilities, both old and new.

Allan also stated that if the electric bill didn't stop increasing he might be forced to shut some transmitters off. Confusing based upon his earlier statement about the flat earthers paying a fee to broadcast. This writer was under the impression that the new client would be paying the power bill for the super station. Rapidly changing gears, the talk turned to all the gardens that Angela had been installing around the station, mostly flower gardens.

Reading of emails at 0057. Also some highlights from the Free Radio Weekly. Dave from Indiana on the phone at 0102 talking about the drug problem and vets not being able to get the pain killers they needed because of this which prompted Allan to restate his position of legalizing all drugs. Another phone call at 0110 from a man in the drug business continuing the discussion of this problem.

After the closing prayer show was off the air at 0123. Almost like the old days of AWWW. John Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505V, June 15 at 0130, WRNO still not with Rick Wiles, but wrapup of `A Time to Dream` gospel huxter. 0131 long dead air with some hum until 0134 starts another g.h., Pastor Ray, citing Joshua VI: 12-14 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
