** CHINA. 15040, July 21 at 1303, CNR1 echo jamming, poor, against All India Radio`s Chinese scheduled until 1315, but can`t hear any of that, supposedly 500 kW, 60 degrees from Bengaluru (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ISRAEL [non]. Regarding i24 and its corporate master Altice, I happen to see an ad for Altice on CNN (possibly inserted locally by its Suddenlink subsidiary), July 21 at 0537 UT, during which it is pronounced Al-teece.

And quite by chance, the head honcho, Patrick Drahi, is subject of this story from Portugal, which came to me as spam. It`s a teaser for the full story about to be published in the major print magazine VISÃO, which I have not yet seen online:

``O lado oculto de Patrick Drahi
anteVISÃO --- Mafalda Anjos, Diretora 19 de Julho de 2017

Provavelmente jà ouviu falar de Patrick Drahi. à ele o empresÃrio de origem judia que quer somar a TVI à Portugal Telecom e desafiar a concorrÃncia, tornando-se num (ainda mais) poderoso empresÃrio no panorama nacional. à conhecido por ser implacÃvel, tratar as pessoas com desprezo, pagar-lhes o menos possÃvel e, nos negÃcios, cultivar a rapidez na tomada de decisÃo. O que poucos sabem à que este homem de nome estrangeiro tem afinal desde o final do ano passado um novo passaporte portuguÃs no bolso, atribuÃdo ao abrigo da lei que desde 2015 admite a atribuiÃÃo de nacionalidade aos judeus sefarditas com ascendentes nascidos no PaÃs. No tema de capa desta semana, Clara Teixeira e Cesaltina Pinto traÃam o perfil do magnata que sonhou em comprar a Time Warner e quer ser o dono disto tudo em Portugal.``

[Google translation of above, slightly improved:]

July 19, 2017 --- The Hidden Side of Patrick Drahi

``You've probably heard of Patrick Drahi. He is the businessman of Jewish origin who wants to add TVI to Portugal Telecom and challenge the competition, becoming an (even more) powerful businessman on the national scene. He is known to be ruthless, to treat people with contempt, to pay them as little as possible and, in business, to cultivate speed in decision-making. What few know is that this man of foreign name has since last year a new Portuguese passport in his pocket, attributed under the law that since 2015 admits the attribution of nationality to Sephardic Jews with ascendants born in the country. On this week's cover, Clara Teixeira and Cesaltina Pinto trace the profile of the tycoon who dreamed of buying Time Warner and wants to be the owner of it all in Portugal.``

I then searched for more of the story and got this version, as also translated:

``Drahi, the owner of PT and TVI, has a new passport: Portuguese
Economy 19.07.2017 Ãs 17h08 Rui Duarte Silva

Descendant of Sephardic Jews, Patrick Drahi acquired Portuguese nationality before launching himself for the purchase of Media Capital. It's the third passport to get into his pocket.

In the two years between the acquisition of Portugal Telecom and Media Capital, Altice's boss, Patrick Drahi, has not stopped. Under the new law of 2015, he acquired Portuguese nationality after having been able to prove that he descends from three Jewish families expelled from Portugal by the edict of D. Manuel I, in 1496: Os Adrehi (name that will have evolved to Drahi), the Sicsà and the Amouyal.

Of the Adrehi and SicsÃ, there are records of their return to Faro in the 19th century, after Diaspora had taken them first to Livorno (Italy), and then to Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco, where Patrick would be born in 1963.

In the Algarve city, the ancestors of the magnate are remembered as influential members of the Jewish community, and the proof is in sight of whoever crosses the portal of the Lisbon Synagogue.

Learn all about Patrick Drahi's life and Media Capital's buying deal in this week's VISION, Thursday on the newsstands. AVAILABLE ALSO: Ipad - Digital Edition`` (via Glenn Hauser, DXLD)

** OKLAHOMA. 92.1, July 21 at 1429 UT check, local KAMG-LP is *still* transmitting dead air; only a few miles away, but quite weak, and with PL-880 antenna properly positioned, KFXI again penetrates it, with rock, 1434 UT Pauls Valley Ford ad, ``KFXI, Foxi 92``, i.e. 100 kW from Marlow, southern OK.

There is slight tropo enhancement. This and 94.1 Lawton are all I get when I set up on the porch after Es to here halfway up the FM band is implied by the 6m DXmap (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 94.1, July 21 at 1430 UT, with a little tropo boost, rock music manages next to local splatterer 94.3 KLGB-LP. Program plugs it also being on AFN, see bobandtom.com and then national ads from Home Depot, NAPA, but 1431 UT ``Lawton-Fort Sill`s Rock Station, Z-94``, which is KZCD, 35 kW H&V, 178m HAAT. It`s their only OK station per affiliate list:
http://www.bobandtom.com/stations/
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. Checking the NWS Enid website July 20 around 1915 UT, I am astounded to see it display a current temp of 122 F = 50 C! After finding contact form, I tell them:

``It`s hot, but surely not THAT hot, which would be record breaking --- current temp as 122 = 50 C????? How can we rely on this. Today`s high separately predicted at only 103.

I copy from your own site for Enid:

Next check a few minutes later, it has declined to *only* 106. No reply received. Here`s a screenshot of the evidence:

(Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395, Friday July 21 at 1236, WRMI with `The Power Hour`, YL host rather like Joyce, and pushing paranoid products after OM co-host or guest about the 100+year-old sprintress. Fair signal and running 26 seconds behind blasting // 7490 WWCR, also 13845. WRMI Programming page still unshows TPH, but the transmission sked claims 12-15 UT on 9395 (really M-F only), and does not show anything but Oldies on 9455, which really joins in at 13-15 (both still with VOA news on the hour?) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1520, July 21 at 1220 UT, an hour after LSR here, I start some MW bandscanning, where skywave has not quite faded out yet on the topend. KOKC talk from OKC has almost equal signal making slow SAH of 24/minute = 0.4 Hz, and inseparable by DF, so obviously KYND Cypress (Houston market) TX. It`s playing hymns in English, with a brief unID announcement between them..

As of a year ago in the NRC AM Log, KYND was UC:OLD/TLK, 25 kW direxional daytimer, reduced to 18 kW critical hours, different pattern. The indispensable new 38th edition NRC AM Radio Log (about 300 pages on paper only, 3-hole-binder punched) will be out in about a month, and pre-orders are being taken via
http://www.nrcdxas.org/catalog/books/index1.html#ARL
(Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1540.0, July 21 at 1223 UT, since I`ve just heard KYND 1520, time to look for KGBC in Galveston, and there it is with a live timecheck between songs for ``23 past the hour on Galveston`s own KGBC``. How nice that it is once again Galveston`s rather than China`s own (KGBC and KYND both used to relay China Radio International). This has a 72/minute SAH = 1.2 Hz, perhaps with remnant of KXEL if not something closer, and obviously is back almost on-frequency (last year it was way off plus making an audible tell-tale het).

1227 UT a string of about a dozen people getting happy-birthday wishes; and one may apply to be included via http://www.kgbcradio.com --- do you have to prove you`re local? Celebrating un-birthdays would be less risky for identity theft. By now some SS CCI is growing; at first I thought I heard San Antonio mentioned, which would be KEDA, but then definitely ESPN-Deportes Radio, i.e. KZMP. Due to direxionality, it`s not unusual for 2.5 kW KGBC to overcome twice-as-close 32 kW KZMP in The MetroPlex (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1690, July 21 at 1230 UT, ``Money Talk 1690`` and moneytalk1690.com ID from KDMT Arvada CO. Note the word Denver is not included in the URL. Remnant skywave yet from the NW more than an hour after SR here. KDMT should have been bumped up from 1 kW night to day power 10 kW from its FCC-official July sunrise of 1145 UT (August: 1215 UT) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6130-6140, July 21 at 0615, Cuban-style pulse jamming with no reason to be here, stray? Peaking at 6135. Of course quite different North Korean jamming attacking 6135 could be audible much later (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13927-USB, July 21 at 1307, ``have a good flight, 5RN``, off and nothing more for next few minutes. It`s an active USAF MARS long-range frequency, and should bring lots more traffic if one had the patience to sit upon it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15016-AM, July 21 at 1304 and still 1409, JBA carrier. Possibly an R75 birdie, tho not noticed before; unlikely as it is very close to on-frequency and not wavering. 15016 listed only by EiBi as
15016 0000-2400 USA US Air Force Messages E NAm
But of course those would be in USB, details of mode not covered by EiBi. Possibly one of those transmitters is occupying the channel. Many logs of this elsewhere as one of those secret-message alfanumeric channels (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** AFGHANISTAN [non]. 7445, July 21 at 0031, poor signal in noise, maybe stilted Spanish? Far from it: latest HFCC shows BBC in Dari at 0030-0100, 250 kW, 86 degrees from Woofferton UK. (And alternating Pashto and Dari semihours continue on 7445 with site changes: 0100-0300, 35 degrees from Oman; and 0300-0330 switching again to 163 degrees from Uzbekistan) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, July 20 at 0124, RHC English is dead air; while // 6145 is sufficient. There`s always something wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND. Correcting typo in second time: 1046, not 0146, and making it local evening instead of afternoon:

7425, July 19 at 1035, RNZI with interesting interview about social awkwardness, guest with a North American accent; evidently part of an evening magazine show, on to another topic at 1046; sufficiently good reception, as before the switch to NNW antenna at 1059 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 5980, July 20 at 2335, JJJBBBA carrier from R. Chaski, fading up and down vs the noise level. Cuts off at approx. 2339:15* which is 75 seconds later than last check 11 nights ago, July 9 until 2338:00*, so averaging 6.82 seconds later per noctem, right in line with previous calculation of 6.72 seconds over a 34-day span. If it was really until 2339:14* today, as well it could have been within margin of error, that would average out to 6.73! Anyhow, they obviously still have not reset the autotimer closer to nominal 2330.0* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PHILIPPINES. 15355, July 20 at 2256, surprised to find a fairly good signal here with jazz music, interspersed with thrice repeated IDs in English for Radio Veritas Asia, Quezon City, which would start Filipino at 2300 on 15355. After that does start, the signal fades, but it had been #3 only to the Cubans on 15370 and 15230 in the original 19m band, besides a few more weak signals upper, 15610 WEWN, 15730 another RHC.

Aoki shows 15355 as daily 2300-2327, 250 kW, 0 degrees from Palauig, meaning due north or non-direxional? WRTH avoids the issue by never publishing azimuths (not in the Bargraph Frequency Guide either), just very general target areas, in this case Asia. HFCC shows registered targets as CIRAF 42 & 43, i.e. western and central China, which make no sense, neither for language nor for azimuth. Anyhow, this does attain central North America (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1886 monitoring:

** U S A. 5085, UT Thursday July 20 at 0121, WTWW-2 is on, sounds like the Theater-Organ-in-the-Ozarx guy, Bob Heil, but now talking about Heathkit restorations; must be another ham show. Usual bigsig and the weak parasites Ted can`t get rid of close to 5072 and 5098.

9475-, July 20 at 0237, WTWW-1 is still on late, and with usual now suptorted modulation; guess Ted forgot to QSY by 0200 to still vacant 5830 since he`s more attentive to running WTWW-2, 5085 where he is now playing rock music. It sure helps to work for absentee owners who don`t know or care what`s really going on at the station (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11760, July 18 at 1353, this RHC with `Escalas de Cuba` suffers from hum; wiggle that patchcord? Not QRM from China which is also here.

6060, July 19 at 1200, RHC with frequency announcement: 6100 until 1300 and 9535 until 1500, but fails to mention the frequencies already in use, such as the one I am listening to as well as 6000, and the fact that 6100 which I then check is mixed with CCCCI (Chinese Communist Co-channel interference); and furthermore, per Aoki, 6100 & 9535 should have already been on since 1100 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ISRAEL [non]. i24, news channel now available via Suddenlink, Enid, on cable channels 83 & 283 --- the lower one meaning it`s within extended basic tier, and 283 supposedly better in HD, but I think both of them are, like other such pairs. What was on C83 before? I don`t remember, but find an old lineup sheet which said Pivot --- never watched it tho might have been some worthwhile shows, but now it`s nowhere on S/Link, per zap2it listings for here.

Since last report, anyway, I have viewed i24 a bit more and find they do have some commercials, but just a few seen over and over, Galbani -= mozzarella cheese, evidently; Swiss American, NOT cheese but another yellowish thing Pat Boone pushing gold; Sesame Place in Pennsylvania. Lots of repetition in programming too: saw exactly the same news on the hour at 20 and 21 UT; and 04 UT, or almost the same. The news does tend to be Israeli-centric, surprise2.

`Stateside`, however at 01 UT, with David Shuster, originates from ``studio in Times Square, New York``. Of the half-hour, 3 minutes concerned Israel (about the Temple Mount problems). 1-minute break at :11 minutes in merely for self-promotion, no commercials there. Could be optional for cable systems to insert own ads. Two-minute break at :21, introduced as ``commercial break``, but first for Altice, which is the corporate master of Suddenlink and i24; and promo for Africa-Israel Summit, October in Togo; and another minute of i24 promotion.

Kai Ludwig, Germany, replied to my original report:

``Of course they're now relaying the TV channel operated by those who took over this cable company in 2015:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patrick_Drahi

PR puff (or what passes for journalism at media industry publications) about the USA launch in February:
http://www.broadbandtvnews.com/2017/02/13/israels-i24news-launches-in-the-us/

And be prepared that within the next months Suddenlink itself will suddenly become Altice, too:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suddenlink_Communications

>>> Anyhow i24 is the closest we are going to get to Al Jazeera for TV news from the Mideast <<<

You mean, no Al Jazeera available? https://www.suddenlink.com/tvlineup indeed shows, when entering 73701, neither this nor RT, DW, France 24, Arirang (KBS), NHK World, CCTV (China; what I saw from them so far was pretty crude, by the way) or, godforbid, Cubavision and Telesur (Venezuela). So really nothing of this all available??`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, July 18, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

11580, WRMI, July 16, 2017, 0208â0228 in English. SIO 555. Glenn Hauserâs "World of Radio" program. Radio news and commentary (Henley, WA, NASWA Flashsheet via DXLD)

9485, Hamburger LokalRadio, GÃhren, 1030-1115, 16-07, English, Glenn Hauserâs program "World of Radio", at 1100 Spanish, "Radio Tropical". 25322 (Manuel MÃndez, Lugo, Spain, Logs in Reinante, Tecsun PL-880, Sangean ATS-909X, cable antenna, 8 meters, dxldyg via DX LISTENING DIGEST)

WOR 1886: Confirmed Tuesday July 18 at 2130 on WRMI 9455 & 15770; initially stronger on the higher, but quickly faded, both to fair level.

** U S A. 17775, Tuesday July 18 at 1958, KVOH is still on with music, good but wobbly; 2000 ID in English, more music.

I finally recheck their complex program grid which combines 24h webstream with SW at certain hours, now updated as of June 1:
http://www.voiceofhope.com/schedule/kvoh_program_grid.pdf

Which shows 17775 is supposed to run until 2100 on Thu & Fri only, until 1900 Mon/Tue/Wed, but furthermore: ``*Las emisiones Lun-Mie en 17775 kHz pueden continuar mÃs allà de 1900 UTC dependiendo de los requisitos operacionales``.

Further2more, ENGLISH is now inhabiting the Friday extension, starting with `Music in the Afternoon until 1930`, then a sesquihour of preaching. The grid no longer makes any reference to long defunct 9975. (Tho e.g. AWR Wavescan weekly scripts continue to claim a broadcast on it.) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9530, July 17 at 0122, no JBA carrier here, so suspect R. Progreso is also absent from fundamental 4765 where it`s supposed to start at 0030: yes, it`s off. No RHC fundamental on 9535 either, power failure at site? No, Cuba still rampant on 5025, 5040, 6000, 6060, 6145; but MUF is also depressed: poor on 11760, 11840.

6100, July 17 at 0526 check, RHC English is AWOL from this frequency leaving only four of the Cuban Five, 5040, 6000, 6060, 6145.

11760, July 17 at 1301, RHC Spanish QSY announcement for 6100 to 15370 until 1500. (The other two 49m, 6000 & 6060, are supposed to continue another hour until 1400) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** IRAN. 7425.0, July 17 at 0130, algo JBA and nothing on 7424, so presumed VIRI Arabic via Zahedan back on proper frequency, scheduled all the way from 1730 to 0230 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 3185, July 17 at 0135, BS via WWRB; had been on 9370 at 0120 scanby, so the QSY accomplished at odd time between (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENNG DIGEST)

** U S A. 9825, UT Monday July 17 at 0530, it`s not often that anything on WHRI causes me pause, but a version of ``Hallelujah`` nice song catches my ear --- not to a familiar tune, sounds rather Jewish, very minor key. Continues without announcements with other unfamiliar hymns in robust performances at 0533, 0538 past 0552 when I doze, and off when checked at 0600. WHR sked and consequently Aoki show:
9825 WHRI2 Water of Life Ministries 0500-0600 12345.. English 250 47

Searching on that leads to:

** U S A. 1050, UT Monday July 17 at 0141 UT, start of interview in English with author of a book about guns, no sign of XEG yet but CCI from another; 0142 UT cut to ad for MO State Fair in Sedalia, and 0143 UT sig drops off, LSS for KSIS, 1000/86 watts U1 in Sedalia? Yes, official FCC sunset in June & July is 0145 (August: 0115). At first I thought the first station was something else, since the interview was interrupted just after it started. But sked for KSIS
http://ksisradio.com/shows/sunday/
confirms at 8 pm CT Sunday is: `Armed America Radio`, and if that`s not enough, at 11 pm, `The Gun Owner`s Newshour`, both from Townsquare network. A turn-off for visiting Sedalia? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1257 & 1283 kHz, July 17 at 0139 UT, IBOC noise is very evident QRMing 1260 and 1280 stations, therefore emanating from something on 1270. No doubt KFLC Fort Worth TX, 50/5 kW as still listed only IBOC active on 1270:
http://topazdesigns.com/iboc/station-list.html
And on 1270 itself Spanish is atop sports in English from OK (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
