** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-CUSB, Sat Sept 5 at 1540, 1645 and still 1747
chex, no signal to Brasil remotes from LRA36. RNASG succeeded
transmitting Wednesday Sept 2, and had been repeating Saturdays except
last week due to bad weather, altho there had been no specific
publicity about today. Base Esperanza weather is relatively mild
today, per Accuweather, so that`s no excuse:

``Saturday, September 5 Current Weather 12:54 PM [1654 UT] -5°C
RealFeel® -7°, RealFeel Shade™ -9°
Mostly sunny, Max UV Index 2 Low
Wind NW 13 km/h, Wind Gusts 18 km/h
Humidity 63%, Indoor Humidity 26% (Very Dry), Dew Point -11° C
Pressure 1007.5 mbar
Cloud Cover 25%, Visibility 16 km, Cloud Ceiling 12200 m``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey, September 5 at 1456: none found in the
WOOB 14s, 13s, 12s, 11s or 10s; a JBA carrier on 13150 computes
instead as a receiver overload mix of 11760 RHC + 1390 KCRC local
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6000, Sept 5 at 0432, RHC English is suptorted, JBM and
distorted at S9/+20; but 6145 is OK good. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13635 & 13765 approx., Sept 5 at 1451, RHC spurblobs, no
readable modulation but F# tone, out of 13700, and weaker second-order
pair about 13570 & 13830; just in time as they all go off at 1454.8*.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.9v, Sept 5 at 0620, VON is on tonight, imagine that!
S9+10 fading to S6 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 11735 & 12000, Sept 5 at 1800, no signals from
anti-Christ pirate Station YHWH, which had been caught occasionally
with Saturday-daytime broadcasts on 25m -- I got 12000 once, and Mick
Delmage had him on 11735 blocking Zanzibar. I scan the entire 25mb+
from 11500 to 12200 with no results. Maybe was on earlier and too late
already (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2050 monitoring: confirmed Saturday Sept 5 at
1300 on WRMI 15770, S8-S9, much better than usual here off the side of
the NE beam. Next:

Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 USA (Glenn Hauser, WOR)

** U S A. 730, Sept 5 at 0450 UT, silly baseball game, mentions Dodger
Stadium more than once, poor signal vs QRM partly Spanish. 24 hours
ago on 730 I was getting Brother Scare which turned out to be KQPN
Arkansas, diverging from its nominal format of Yahoo Sports Radio ---
but that`s too far from LA to care about the Dodgers.

I consult the Sports Radio listings in IRCA DX Monitor June 27, to
find no 730s even circumCalifornia on the Dodger network. Any radio
roster on the Dodgers website is well-hidden, but what team are they
playing so late tonight? Colorado Rockies, and they *do* have a 730,
KLOE Goodland KS, one of our closest 730s, so that makes sense; it`s
292 miles vs 257 from KKDA TX Korean. However, NRC AM Log shows KLOE
as U1 1000/20 watts, wow! What do you bet it`s on day power. BTW,
address for it is in nearby Colby. See also 850: KOA (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 850, Sept 5 at 0454 UT, KOA Denver, silly baseball game with
*lots* of dead air --- no cheering crowd to fill the void, as the PBP
announcer just says nothing for up to 20 seconds, yawn; however there
is a trace of some kind of pulsing noise. So strong it`s QRMing 840.
This would be Colorado Rockies game vs Dodgers, axually same one I had
just heard on 730, but could not tell if same feed (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** VANUATU. 11835, Sept 5 at 0445, JBA carrier from R. Vanuatu x 3,
qualifying now as the OSOB and therefore the SSOB! (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9077-USB, Sept 5 at 0438, weak 2-way in Spanish, or
rather multi-way, mentioning putas. A couple more of these unlogged a
bit higher in the 9s (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Logs
** NORTH AMERICA. 5060v, Sept 4 at 0035 while monitoring WBCQ, I see a
note on the ODXA iog, from John Hudak, Dundas, ON, ``Pirate station
WDOG is on 5060 kHz USB right now as I write this - 0027 UT Sept. 5,
2020 (8:27 p.m. EDT Fri. Sept. 4). Fairly good signal, playing various
rock and pop songs. Frequent ID's between songs and sound of dog
barking.``

So I switch one of the Rochester SDRs to 5060 and there it is with
rock music? More like noise and I don`t really recognize any musix or
barx. Synch indicates frequency fluxuating 5060.7 to 5061.6; still
there past 0119 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. Re 780 KSPI having a 1969y ``PSA`` from FCC, and what
does it stand for? Bob Biermann, FL, explains on the WOR iog:
``In FCC jargon, PSA means presunrise authority, which is generally
500 watts, though sometimes less, beginning at 6:AM local time. PPSA
is partial presunrise authority. An example of PPSA would be
protecting a station toward east until sunrise at the protected
station's location. PSSA is post sunset authority which may include
multiple lower powers levels.)`` (Glenn Hauser, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Fri Sept 4 at 2200 when REE should be in M/W/F
English, only dead air of S9+10/20. Also open carrier on 11940. 2203
checking at UTwente, 9690 open carrier with heavy ACI from 9685
Chinese music; 11940 & 11670 & 12030 all with dead air except for some
rapid clicking which is more audible on each if offtuned 1 or 2 kHz
from center carriers ---- and not heard elsewhere on bands so I
conclude that is coming out of the Noblejas transmitters rather than
QRM or something local at the SDR. Recheck here a sesquihour later at
2333, 11940 & 9690 are still on unmodulated, the latter registering
S9+20/30 of wastage. A few days ago someone enquired whether REE
English had been canceled but I can`t find it now; nor had I been
checking every alternate weekday. Tnx anyway for lessening competition
against WOR at same time on 9955 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, Friday Sept 4 at 2200, no signal here from VOT
English for us, just NSS RTTY. Neither at UTwente checked at 2203 and
beyond. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler. Tnx anyway for
lessening competition against WOR at same time on 9955 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2050 monitoring: confirmed Friday
Sept 4 at 2200 on WRMI 9955, S9 direct and no jamming; at 2219 checked
at TWR Bonaire where it`s S9+10. Also poorly audible at UTwente where
it`s way off-target.

Also confirmed UT Saturday Sept 5 at 0130 on WRMI 9955, S9+10/20
direct, no jamming; 7780 S9+10 but much more noisy. As usual better
via UTwente SDR where it`s aimed. At Rochester 9955 is better than
7780. Next:

1300 UT Saturday WRMI 15770 to NE
1930vUT Saturday WA0RCR 1860-AM

** U S A. 7490.1 & 6159.9 & 5130: UT Sat Sept 5 at 0000, I start
monitoring `AAAWWW` on WBCQ direct. On 7490 the g.h. who thinx he`s
later on 9625 from WINB is closing late, so WBCQ ID and WTO overlaps
mixing with him. 5130 joins WTO slightly later. 6160 which has been in
`Old Tyme Radio` at 0001 is playing hi-pitched IS, and other music;
0002 still not WTO, nor at 0004. 7490 is quite noisy, so I move to its
webcast, but miss a minute or two of what`s being said.

1) Angela is beautiful; 2) lamenting a friend, Jim, who has died, not
clear of what, accident? Later mentions last name Lerner, a visiting
radio/TV engineer. At 0010 says ``6160 is not on`` --- well, it has
been but not with this show; he thinx ``stupid remote control shut it
off at 8 o`clock``. 5130 & 7490 are also on. It`s been bad week,
besides losing Jim, personnel problems. 0013 says 6160 is back up, and
gets into politix/religitix, denouncing Pelosi et al. repeatedly as
``dickheads``. 0019 pause and says there has just been a power outage;
thinx his yelling axually blew 5130 & 6160 off the air by
overmodulating! Puts on music fill to go out and restart them. I
quickly check Rochester SDR and indeed 5 & 6 are off while 7 is still
on.

0023 says 6160 is back on, but not 5130 which has 15-year-old tubes
needing replacing. May have to move all 5130 programming to 6160,
which was retubed a year ago. PA final tubes can be very expensive, a
TH576 for the 500 kW transmitter is available new from Thalès for
$ 189K, as he just priced it; weighs 135 lb, more than Angela`s 105,
water-cooled. A rebuilt one would cost only $ 100K. Why charge so much?
Not that complicated; because they can, as only source. For a 50 kW
transmitter would cost only $ 10K, an ACX35000; or $ 6-7K rebuilt.
Wishes someone would donate enough $ $ to fix them up.

Brother Stair provides some income, but ``is not paying a quarter of
what he should be``, likewise other clients. 0029 into COVID-19; 0030
interrupted by a call, tells them to call back in an hour. That was
about his other business, antique auto sales; see the HCCA website for
his items, Horseless Carriage Club of America.

On to nutrition discussion, obesity adding risk for COVID-19; both A &
A are thin; he eats some meat such as plain hamburgers, she does not.
Both eat veggies and so should everyone so their shit is green. 0044
caller from Toronto; 0046 finally reveals it`s 4th of September, YOOL
2020 and now on 7490 & 6160. 0048 call from Philadelphia wondering if
tubes are guaranteed, and for how long.

0050 skims some Free Radio Weekly items just published including
Nicaragua 8989 but not mentioning who reported it -- me. Resumes also
mentioning FRSH, but balks at reading frequencies to 3 decimal places
as I reported. 0057.5 mentions WHRI acquisition is still in transition
period. Does not explain how he can pay $ 1.25 million for that yet
can`t afford new tubes for Classic WBCQ Monticello. Benedixion and off
just in time for 0100 Hal Turner. Here`s John Carver`s version:

``Tonight's show started on time on 7490 and 5130. 6160 was carrying
music. Allan and Angela in the studio. Allan opens with how much he
loves looking at Angela. Then into news of a friend of everyone at the
station who had fallen from a radio tower, not at WBCQ. Allan
mentioned that he was in the process of rebuilding transmitter number
one and had been for a month now. Allan announced that 6160 wasn't
running and it was probably a computer problem. Then he announced that
it was now up and running the program. Then stated that if any BLM
group tried to shut down the station they would be met with guns. Back
to his friend, he said it was a shame that he had to die when there
were so many other people in this country that should die instead.
Then a very mini rant about Biden, Pelosi, Cortez and a few others.

At 0018, 5130 went down and I retuned to 7490 in time to hear Allan
announce that both 5130 and 6160 had gone down hard. He put some music
on and went out to see if he could get them going. Allan was back at
0022 saying that 6160 was back up but 5130 was hopeless and probably
needed to be retubed and that they may have to move 5130 programming
to 6160. Said he would work on it late and make a decision then. He
said all the tubes needed to be replaced and he was throwing around
prices of a hundred thousand to a hundred and ninety thousand per
tube. He mentioned that the programmers at the station should be
paying three times more for airtime than they were now on the classic
WBCQ. He asked for someone to send him a couple million dollars so he
could fix all the transmitters.

Then on to obesity and the epidemic of overeating in this country and
how it contributed to Covid deaths. Then into general food talk. Phone
call at 0043 from Canada with a gentleman suggesting that the station
add a program about vegan foods. Allan and Angela thought it was a
great idea. Another phone call at 0048 asking for verification of the
tube prices that Allan mentioned earlier and asked if the tubes
included a warranty.

Reading of emails at 0050 starting with a reading of the Free Radio
Weekly. Third email was the newest version of the Free Radio Weekly
and he read through that one also. Another mention about buying WHRI
and how wonderful it would be and how important to preserve all these
radio stations but no real information about it. Closing prayer at
0058 and off the air at 0100. John, Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer survey WOOB, Sept 4 at 1425: only JBA carriers
on 13160, 11460. K-index at 1500 is 3 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9790, Sept 4 at 0444, CRI Cantonese relay is S9+50! but
overmodulated/distorted compensating for dead air the last time I
checked it. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** MEXICO. 650, Sept 4 at 1200, Radio 65, XETNT Los Mochis, Sinaloa
starting its morning news show with full ID from Grupo Chávez, fair
signal; and weaker, QRMed 610 XEGS Guasave has just joined in // after
separate music before the hour. Welcoming us to viernes, fin de
semana. But first, some really frantic banda music to wake us up. 1207
down to business with ``avances de información`` = headlines, weather
info, lack of lluvias, 1210 fading out. LSR here was 1206. Good to be
hearing these again.

700, another NW Mexican has not quite faded out by 1200, Spanish
either XEGD Parral, Chihua2 or XEETCH, Etchojoa, Sonora; and signs of
870 XETAR, Guachochi, Chihua2. Need earlier selfarising and/or later
sunrising. Tim Hall`s new IRCA Mexican Log notes that official IFT
info does not include XETNT and XEGD, but were reconfirmed still
active on MW as of last year (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 275-MCW kHz, Sept 4 at 0422 UT, ND beacon GUY, which is
25 watts from Guymon. Strangely enough, believe first time I`ve heard
it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 341-MCW kHz, Sept 4 at 0420 UT, ND beacon EI at
Woodring Airport, Enid is dominant on loop aimed E/W, while OIN,
Oberlin KS is JBA but no EI on the shortwire N/S. An earlier obs not
logged found them about equal and timed so alternating nicely (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 780 kHz, Sept 4 at 1135 UT, strong rock music looping
toward Stillwater, i.e. KSPI 250-watt daytimer; 1138 ``It`s Pete`` and
more music. Checking since Tim Hall`s huge Final Report of his Border
Inn NV/UT DXpedition last October included an unID on 780:

``10/26 1116 - "Strong Enough" by Sheryl Crow (successfully identified
by SoundHound app) on ENE wire. Not sure who this would be; a whiny
90s pop tune doesn't fit KAZM's occasional overnight oldies show. It
might fit on KSPI or possibly WPTN, but neither of those stations
should be on at this hour``

I told him, ``780 unID, seems like I have heard KSPI before 7 am CDT,
tho am rarely awake then -- maybe they are coming on at 11 UT = 6 am
CDT. Will try to check. No, I can`t find any FCC record of psra.``

At FCC AM Query I look thru ancient history cards concerning KSPI.

http://licensing.fcc.gov/cgi-bin/prod/cdbs/forms/prod/getimportletter_exh.cgi?import_letter_id=44676

Original CP in August 1946 was for 840, but changed by November to
780. In 1949, a Special Service Authorization to operate from 6 am to
7:30 pm CST --- was denied. In 1950 they tried for dual-frequency
operation, switching to 790 at night with 500 watts direxional, but
that was dismissed. In 1953 applied to move to 1490 unlimited hours,
but later withdrew. On 9-30-69 there was a telegram about a ``PSA`` at
250 watts to protect WBBM. Does that mean pre-sunrise, post-sunset, or
both?? And is that the basis for starting by 6 am now? (Glenn Hauser,

Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 USA

NEW first airing, UT Friday September 4 at 0130 confirmed on WRMI
5850, VG S9+20/30 and 5010, G S9/+10. Weaker signal but 5010
modulation level sounds slightly higher (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 730 kHz, Sept 4 at 0426 UT, the unmistakable roarer Brother
Scare with almost-constant plugging of his phone number, slightly
above the QRM level. Compared to 7730 WRMI, 730 is running 21 seconds
behind; still at 0458 recheck in more contact info. No ID breaks are
built-in to the Overcomer feed, but 0459 seems to cut away, maybe
local ID but uncopyable. 0500 Fox `News` but can`t be certain same
station.

TOM website has redesigned its Radio Log starting with SW stations in
table format, but it`s never 100% accurate:

https://overcomerministry.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/Radio-Log.pdf

Only 5 AM stations remain at the bottom, no more WCKY but still WWVA;
and two of them are shown for the Sabbath service only, Sat 9-11 am
CDT, including one on 730: KQPN 730 West Memphis AR. But this is
certainly not when I am hearing it. I can`t find a website for itself,
but searching indicates it`s Yahoo Sports Radio, and owned by F. W.
Robberts, i.e. same as WMQM and WWCR! There is streaming link:
https://tunein.com/radio/KQPN-730-s35522/
which confirms at this time it`s not sports at all but 0515 UT with:
Brother Scare! KQPN is U4, 1/1 kW with a non-major lobe thisaway
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1147, 1157, 1173, 1183 kHz, Sept 4 at 0437, heavy IBOC noise
peaks as KSL 1160 SLC and KFAQ 1170 Tulsa fight it out. I daresay
nowhere else among the `clear` channels audible here is there any such
crap remaining (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1370, still no sign of KGNO Dodge City KS. I need a better
excuse to drive all the way to DC to investigate.

Following up: consulting Tim Hall`s Final Report of last October`s
Border Inn NV/UT DXpedition, I see among hundreds of logs including
several on 1370, there is none of KGNO, so I wrote him, ``I was
looking to see whether you got KGNO Dodge City KS, which I suspect of
being secretly off the air.`` Tim replies:

``KGNO was a regular catch at this location until at least 3 or 4
years ago (I don't recall exactly), but I haven't had a trace of them
since, despite the fact that the channel is less crowded after some of
the Mexican stations went off. I also suspect KGNO is off... or maybe
just in extreme disrepair? Same with KLEY-1130, a station whose
travails you have documented in recent years. I think the same can be
said for some of the HPRN stations in Texas/Oklahoma/New Mexico.
[High Plains Radio Network] has been consolidating operations for
several years now, running the same programming on groups of 2 or 3
stations that used to have their own formats and staffs. I've been
especially suspicious of KICA-980 [Clovis NM], which I have never
heard, even on optimal sunset/sunrise dates/times, and even when
KCLV-1240 and KSEL-1450 [Portales NM] have been nightly catches. Also
in last October's recordings, I had no trace of KVOP-1090 [Plainview
TX] at all, and they are usually a bit of a pest on several wires.
HPRN has almost no web presence at this point, just a basic skeleton
of a web site for all of their stations on one page. In contrast to
the general state of HPRN stations, little KTAT-1570 [Frederick OK,
eluding gh] was a nightly catch this year. They didn't put as big a
dent in XERF as little KDDD-800 [Dumas TX] puts in XEROK, but there
were several clear IDs audible in my recordings.`` (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search, Sept 4 at 1151-1159
UT on the R75 and E-W longwire, so no DFing: 567, 576, 693, 747, 828,
837, 882(2), 1089, 1098, 1107, 1116(2), 1125, 1134, 1161, 1224, 1242,
1278, 1521, 1611 kHz. At this time too much splash from 780 KSPI music
to get 774, but earlier at 1139 on the PL-880 while checking KSPI,
could detect 774 and looping NW = Japan. Enid sunrise today: 1206 UT
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Logs
KJRB 790 Spokane, WA made the 730 mile trip to Laramie, WY with its 84
watts on Wednesday September 2nd at 931pm mountain with "Rock Me Like a
Hurricane".

Here's the audio and the signal gets pretty good right after the 20 second
mark. Audio:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1yTI-hxz3AVUsQX251q4--lDXyHqzQHm-/view?usp=sharing

(per a conversation with the Stephens Media engineer, they filed a form 302
and this is what the night power will be)


KNZZ 1100 Grand Junction, CO usually plasters my radio at night in Laramie,
Wyoming but a few days ago, their signal was so weak, I had a hard time
telling that Joe Pags and his female co host were on the same station and
that allowed WZFG 1100 Dillworth, MN (Fargo) to sneak through.

Here's WZFG from 585 miles away from Wednesday September 2nd at 10:15pm
mountain time with Alex Jones. Audio:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1AZAROIgILwY5j2WS-Y2mEZlRqrVjYPhd/view?usp=sharing

KJJK-AM 1020 Fergus Falls, MN 370 Watts/2 towers at 585 miles away from me
in Laramie, WY. Heard Thursday September 3rd at 928pm mountain with
"Supalonely" by Benee ft. Gus Dapperton. .

KRPI 1550 Ferndale, WA has been heard here 975 miles away in Laramie, WY
but it's 10kw/2 tower signal is never very good and it never pops in for
very long. But, thankfully their south asian music stick out like a sore
thumb on the radio dial and is pretty obvious.

Here they are from Thursday September 3rd at 1049pm. The music is there,
it's a little rough but it's there.
