** CANADA. 6754-USB, Aug 20 at 0414, Trenton Military more or less
back to normal after several days of distorted modulation and ``no
report received`` from anything, per other monitors. Now only partial
NRRs and OK mod; but clock is still off: own time check at 0417Z as
``0415``. Haven`t heard it much on day frequency 15034-USB. CHR has
gone thru such phases before leading to assumptions that it`s done
for, but eventually recovers when someone fixes it, after vacation?
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6948-USB, Aug 20 at 0000 tune-in to some classic
rock, Henry VIII I Am, 0002.5 Let`s Do the Twist, 0010 Runaway; 0025

into Maryland SDR, then fading down. Back up by 0433 ID missed and
gmail; 0439 ``You are listning to Radio Genix`` and more music,
``Radio Ga-Ga``. This was reported not later than 0235 here:

First broadcasts confirmed UT Fri Aug 20 at 0130 on WRMIs, 5850 VG
direct; and 7780 VG S9+10/20 via UTwente. Argentine en français
ensuite par 7780 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4790-, Aug 19 at 0552, this WBCQ is off, but 6160- is still
on with TOMBS, 9330- also on JBA; 7490- off as supposed to be; nothing
direct on 3265, nor at random chex otherwhens even via nearby

At 0409 UT Aug 20, to Maryland SDR, no signal on 3265-; 4790- and
6160- and 9330- are on (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2100)

** U S A [and non]. 9455, Aug 19 at 0554, WRMI-5 is still off while
9395 & 9955 are audible, but poorly. 1351 recheck, algo JBA on 9455,
much weaker than TOMBS on 9395; that would be Furusato no Kaze from
Japan via TAIWAN for Korea North, as sked until 1358. 9455 WRMI has
been off since at least Aug 11; no info on the problem or prognosis.
It`s dispensable with TOMBS or SMTV except for two hours of the 24
with variety of programming scheduled: 00-01 & 09-10 (Glenn Hauser,

** U S A. 4975, Aug 19 at 2355, tune-in one receiver here to 4976-LSB,
and another to 4980, at 4979-USB; as I suggested previously, if 4975 &
4980 come on at exactly the same time, that would prove 4975 is a spur
from WRMI-4. I had already detected The Overkiller on both. YES! They
both pop carriers on about *2358.5, 4975 JBA carrier, and 4980 with
the WRMI IS & ID loop prior to ToH. This also answers my unID at the
end of WOR 2100, recorded shortly before this (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1130, re my unID Spanish QRM to KWKH in the middle of the
night, maybe one of 3 daytimers listed in Spanish, Powell E Way III,
SC, reports on ABDX August 18:

``[abdx.org] WLBA

1130 WLBA Gainesville GA *blasting* in at 9:15 PM EDT .

A man of few words, does not even say what language. However listed in
last year`s NRC AM Log as SS:MEX, 10 kW ND daytimer, 1 kW critical
hours, group: La Mejor [sic: Peor?]. So this could be the unID SS I
had QRMing KWKH (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2100)

** AFGHANISTAN [non]. 7600, Aug 18 at 1526, new clandestine
Afghanistan International TV puts VG signal into Kuwait SDR, S9+15/25
in SAM mode. Very slight hum. Bit of vamp music, seagull sounds, not
sure if language be Dari = Farsi or Pashto. Should be both as time
goes on. IDs in passing with English? name ``Afghan International``
and spelling out AFINTLTV. 1528 brief English clips from W and Obama
about previous end of Taliban regime. 1530 at ToH in Afgh, theme and
continuous talk, including female voice about Topic A, some crowd
noise clips such as at 1603. Just what you would expect from a TV
soundtrack. Still going with more of same past 1700. At 1725 a woman
starts singing briefly. 1729 more clips of GW Bush about the Taliban
takeover. 1730 maybe language switch? Still VG past 1737+.

This was first reported on 7600, August 16 and misidentified as a BBC
frequency change. Arthur Pozner explained at 1705 UT Aug 17: ``The
7600 kHz transmission is NOT BBC. Supposedly originating from R.
Afghanistan Intl and based in the UK. Transmission site may be the
same as R. Iran Int'l, near Tashkent. The parent company of both
programs is Volant Media UK Ltd.``

Ron Howard then found this info about it but failing to mention SW: we
wonder if it can have more viewers by satellite TV now in Afgh?

Volant Media UK Launches Afghanistan International TV

On Sunday, the day the Taliban captured Afghanistan’s capital Kabul,
Volant Media UK Ltd., the parent company of Iran International TV,
launched Afghanistan International TV (AITV). AITV aspires to serve as
a 24/7 international news network to provide reliable information for
audiences and protect media freedom in the country.

With Afghanistan undergoing a chaotic transition after the US military
withdrawal, AITV aspires to be a voice for the voiceless — to tell the
story of the people of Afghanistan, as Harun Najafizada, AITV’s
director tells Iran International TV. He revealed concerning reports
of the Taliban’s tense relations with the media community and how
independent journalistic activities have been severely disrupted.

Afghanistan International TV crew at their broadcast station. FILE

The situation in Afghanistan is so dire that AITV decided to launch
the network prior to the planned start date — which was slated for the
United Nations’ International Peace Day on September 21. The hope is
that this will fill a media vacuum that has developed with so many
people fleeing the country and will provide a critical source of
reporting and information amid rapidly shifting events on the ground.

AITV, which has started with daily nine hours of live television news
and programs, plans to expand to a full 24/7 schedule as soon as
possible. But AITV also has a radio stream which is already offering
24-hour news and programs.

In terms of programming, Najafizada said AITV plans to rely heavily on
reporting from across Afghanistan and to produce informative programs
— talk shows, documentaries, and debates — to engage with people
inside and outside Afghanistan. AITV will be an independent and
impartial channel which will report facts, in keeping with standard
journalistic norms.

As to how AITV will fare with the Taliban in control of Afghanistan,
Najafizadeh says it is not about AITV, but it is about the Taliban and
how they receive the international media. AITV is prepared for any

This mentions a ``radio stream`` but WTFK? No 7600 cited. Its span as
yet unknown, nor whether there be any other frequency. As of Aug 18
there is still nothing in HFCC A-21 on 7600. Since Tashkent is only
756 km = 469 miles from Kabul, 7600 might work 24 hours (Glenn Hauser,

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Aug 18 at 1446, no signal this
Wednesday from LRA36 into two Brazilian SDRs (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 248-MCW kHz, Aug 18 at 0621, WG, NDbeacon from Winnipeg is
barely copiable due to current local blob over the frequency (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Aug 18 at 0618, JBA carrier again from
presumed R. Kiribati (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4096, Aug 18 at 0603, sweeps upward from the beacon formerly
known as DW for desert whooper. JBA in noise level.

4102.8, Aug 18 at 0604, the ``W`` weather beacon also JBA, also sends
various other letters and numbers (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2099 monitoring: Richard Lemke, Alberta,
reports: ``Dear Glenn: I tuned in late stepped out before and
confirmed, 1056 the computer was down short while, 1057, talking about

** U S A. 6160- & 4790-, Aug 18 at 0610, both WBCQs are OFF, instead
of BSing all night. Perhaps there be a storm around Monticello. 7490-
is also off but that`s normal at this hour. 9330- is NOT off,
continues with WLCR. It`s unclear whether the current 9330
transmissions with a lower-powered backup transmitter are coming thru
the Ampegon high-gain antenna, or one of the regular antennas. The
strength sometimes implies a lot of antenna gain is in play; and
remaining on air while the others are off also implies the separate
transmitter site for it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9455, Aug 18 at 0612, WRMI-5 is still off the air; while
9395 & 9955 are unusually VG at this hour. Nothing found at WRMI
disgraced FB about what`s going on with 9455 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. 335-MCW kHz, Aug 17 at 0624 UT, ND beacon YLD is JBA, 1000
watts from Chapleau ON. Only other ones making it lately but not
specifically logged at this time: 332 QT Thunder Bay, and 382 YPL
Pickle Lake, both ONs (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KASHMIR [non]. 15170, Aug 17 at 1515, another Tuesday-only
broadcast of IRRS with Kashmir Civitas; via UTwente, S9+25, cuts off
air for few seconds just as I tune in and back on. This week it keeps
going in presumed Urdu talk with understrumming, no early cut to
extraneous songs in English. Still talking when modulation cut at
1529, replaced by ROMANIA interval signal twice until carrier off at
1529.5*. It also sounded like a power reduxion and increase in noise
level before RRI IS started, but was not watching strength meter
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Aug 17 at 0625, JBA carrier the only one on
9-kHz intervals. A bit stronger than last time, but I never get any
audio from presumed R. Kiribati; Xmas island so far eastward from the
rest of the far-flung island nation that it`s already long post-sunset
0438 UT, at Kiritimati UT +14,
similar to Hawaii to the north at UT -10 = really the same zone except
for 24 hours apart (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN [and non]. 15520, Aug 17 at 2257, S5-S6 of dead air no doubt
from REE into Maryland SDR, yet another day of RNE failing to
modulate, presumably for several hours, while the other three
frequencies are to be heard, 17855, 11940 and 11670. 15520 continues
dead past 2301 until cutoff at 2306* -- probably the normal weekday
time following a few minutes of earworm IS as on 11670 but unchecked
during this period after noting 2301 that frequency had RHC colliding,
just now on air // 11760, with REE // 11940. By 2306 recheck, only RHC
is left on 11670. Something`s nonsensical at Noblejas: they keep
turning the 15520 transmitter on but do not notice it`s silent (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1540, Aug 17 at 0632 UT, ``America`s Best Music, AM 1540 and
98-7 FM``. NRC AM Log shows that matches KBOA Kennett MO in the SE
corner bootheel, NOStalgia format, U1, 1000 watts day, ONE WATT night,

Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1550 kHz, am trying August 17 to confirm KKLE Winfield KS,
which apparently has been off air for almost a year, time to make a
showing or lose license; in light of sibling Rocking M Media station
1130 KLEY Wellington KS, C&W music already back on for several days
and audible even at night despite legal power of ONE WATT.

In fact, per NRC AM Log, KKLE shares exactly the same Wellington
street address as KLEY! Could both also be at same transmitter site?
No, FCC info shows KKLE in fact at Winfield, east of Wellington and
north of Ark. City. KKLE is 250 watts daytime and ND but if on,
nowhere near the 250-watt day signal 1130 puts in here with direxional
disadvantage if really in play, but with lower-frequency groundwave
advantage. 1550 on or off has never been obvious here like 1130.

1550, Aug 17 at 1502 UT on R75 with E/W longwire, I have sports talk
interview, not news, fading with fast SAH, so at least two stations.
On DX-398, DF of most signal from NNE/SSW, i.e. KKLE. At 1700 on ND
caradio, music which among the closest 1550s implies KRZD Springfield
MO, 5 kW ND if it`s still rock as in last year`s NRC AM Log. KMAD
Madill in S OK next to TX also listed as C&W, 250 watts ND, but I
never hear it and not sure it be on air now.

At 1704 UT on NRD-545 with E-W loop, I can hear an ``ESPN Radio``
mention, which points to KYAL Sapulpa OK, 2.5 kW direxional, and the
`dominant` daytime 1550 if you can call it that. Also in the fringe
area is KDCC Dodge City KS, but listed with Fox Sports Radio, 1 kW
direxional. KKLE format was News/Talk, which I am not now hearing on
1550, but I did have a DF of at least a carrier from that angle.

I also monitored 1550 around sunset, 0100+ UT, but too much further
confusion with skywavers also incoming. August SS/SR times for KKLE to
switch between ND 250 and 52 watt powers: 0115/1145; September:
0030/1215 UT. NRC says KKLE also has pre-sunrise authority for 63
watts, i.e. from 1100 UT until times above. But from KLEY 1130
behavior, it`s kleyr that Rocking M stations don`t strictly follow the
rules of federal communications LAW (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
