Logs
** AUSTRALIA. 11750, June 2 at 1315, hymnodic harmonies with talkovers, vs splash from 11760 Cuba. HFCC claims the entire 1200-1330 broadcast from HCA, 100 kW, 310 degrees from KNX is in Hindi! But Aoki/NDXC breakdown shows a bunch of RBA languages after 1200-1300 daily Hindi, the Sat 1315-1330 slot in Mei, about which EiBi says ``Meithei/Manipuri: India (1.3m)`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 9965, June 2 at 1710, Firedragon at S3-S6, as E Asian propagation is holding up, certainly better than W European. Vs RFA in Chinese via Saipan at 1700-1900, unheard here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11700, June 1 at 2330, RHC music is suptorted = suppressed and distorted modulation. Wiggle that patchcord?

11700, June 2 at 2237, dead air and then off instead of scheduled Portuguese hour. Something`s always wrong at RHC. Back on with Spanish at 2303 check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15730, June 2 at 2218, S9+10 of dead air from RHC, but that`s OK, merely warming up for the 2230 bihour starting with French (except Esperanto Sundays). In fact this would be the OSOB if it were not for the JBA unID q.v. carrier on 15435, but certainly the SSOB --- where is everystation else?? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUATEMALA. 4055, June 3 at 0050, no signal from TGAV. Should be detectable by now if on; another transmitter crash? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [and non]. 9665, June 2 at 1711, S2 music, no doubt KCBS; 9435, June 2 at 1712, hyper-assertive Korean, no doubt VOK; and 9615, June 2 at 1712, more Korean at S5-S8, BBC via PHILIPPINES.

The clock says it`s past noon CDT, but it`s really almost a sesquihour before local mean zenith noon at 1832 UT; along with 9965 Firedrake, FE conditions are upholding. What about 7 MHz: dare I try?

7355, June 2 at 1715, very poor talk in presumed Korean, bits of music, from another BBC Korean frequency at 1530-1830, this one via SINGAPORE; the OSOB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEWFOUNDLAND [and non]. 13270-USB, June 2 at 2220, Gander VOLMET starting with poor signal; but there is also a weak AM carrier on 13270 --- I guessed it, Aoki/NDXC shows 13270 a Sound of Hope, Taiwan frequency starting at 2110, and without a *jammer.

BTW, it may be time for New York Radio, time-sharing the Gander frequencies, to return: from DXLD 18-01:

``It looks as though New York VOLMET will be off the air at least through the end of May, according to an FAA Notice To Airmen:

``A7072/17 - VOLMET 10.051, 6.604, 3.485, 13.270 U/S. 19 DEC 15:14 2017 UNTIL 01 JUN 00:01 2018. CREATED: 19 DEC 15:17 2017``

U/S is an abbreviation for "Unserviceable." The station had been off the air for two months before this NOTAM was issued (Mike Cooper, GA, Jan 1, WORLD OF RADIO 1911, DX LISTENING DIGEST)`` (Glenn Hauser, June 2, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925-USB, June 2 at 2345, pirate music at S7 vs noise peaking at S9; 2350 synthom announcement unreadable; off at 2402 check. These say it was Buddha Radio:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,43103.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6931-CW, June 2 at 0001-0002, slow Morse code message exclaiming ``*UC* TRUMP`` several times, presumed pirate rather than official info. Please QSL. Unknown if this was related to a phone pirate broadcast, e.g. later on 6930 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-AM, June 3 at 0040, pirate music at S5 vs S9+10 static crashes. Also unID for these:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,43106.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6930-USB, June 3 at 0041, hard rock guitar music, averaging S8, also unID pirate for these:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,43107.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6880-AM, June 3 at 0042, John of VORW talking about family and good times, S5 vs S9 crashes; a regular Saturday evening relay by The Relay Station. Many more logs here tho subjected as unID:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,43105.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 530, June 2 at 1718 UT check, K530AM, Vance AFB TIS is back in whack, modulating Ad Council PSA loops (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PHILIPPINES. 9795, June 1 at 2320, YL singing ``Old RuggÃd Cross`` in unknown language, steady beat rather C&W with an instrumental interlude, S9-S7; 2324 announcement sounds like Burmese; another tune/hymn in same style.

One might not expect to be hearing FEBC 100 kW due west from Iba so well, or at all, but that`s what it is, this semihour in the Mon language, per EiBi, which is spoken in Burma (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** UGANDA [non]. 9370, Saturday June 2 at 1437, African music, strong signal as WWRB is reconfirmed here ex-15240 with R. Munansi. At 1447 I`m checking UTwente SDR for World of Radio, so also try 9370: not a bit of Munansi, but rather something in Burmese, i.e. VOA THAILAND at 1430-1530, which is surely also what the Ugandans will be hearing during this hour. At 1713 recheck back here, African music somewhat distorted at S6-S9. Saturday & Sunday daytime-only broadcasts, Tennessee toward east Canada (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1932 monitoring: checking UTwente SDR, Holland for the Sat June 2 at 1431 on HLR 6190-CUSB: nothing at 1438, but trace of me at 1446. Alan Gale in England reports at 1505:

``Hi Glenn, Well the propagation certainly confounded me today, as HLR was audible here from around 1300 UT, and I even managed to catch all of WoR on 6190. The signal strength did start to drop a bit about 8 minutes from the end, but then came back up strongly again till sign off. It must have been due to all those thunderstorms watering the TX site in Germany or something I think. :-) Alan``

Confirmed Saturday June 2 at 2300 on WRMI, 7780, poor. Also confirmed UT Sunday June 3 at 0200 on WRMI 7780, poor-fair. Also confirmed UT Sunday June 3 at 0332 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, about Rick Wiles on WRNO, i.e. 26 minutes into show so must have started quite early circa 0306. Next:
Sun 1030 HLR 9485-CUSB to WSW

Full schedule for WOR on all outlets, not just SW; podcast linx:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490.06, June 1 at 2335, the pre-AWWW gospel huxter on WBCQ has quite a hum on his live(?) feed. Wiggle that patchcord?

`Allan Weiner Worldwide` starts promptly at 0000 June 2 this week, initial interjexions about too many taxes and too few pirates. Angela and Tom are studio sidekix today. Apparently a new one, but did not yet hear a declaration of which YOOL date applied. Unfortunately, John Carver in mid-north Indiana`s computer is down so haven`t had his full AWWW summary this week. Artie Bigley, however, listened to a podcast (of this one?) and reports:

``AW said on his AWW podcast that he will have public service programming on the new 500 kW transmitter. That would be awesome to have WOR on that 20 megawatt ERP transmitter and antenna. Will you request WOR to be aired on that transmitter a few times a week?`` Well, yes, if that`s possible; last I heard, the original plan was that it would be 100% paid for and programmed by the flat-earthers (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. At 0024 UT June 2, as a reminder, I reposted to the WOR iog from WRMI/FB about the 0100-0200 June 2 special on 9395, Hali Palombo`s ambient/music being ``imminent``. I was about to put ``allegedly`` in the headline --

Tuned in at 0058 to hear some odd music which could have been this. 0100 RAE does not start, no introduxion spoken, but sounds like Oldies programming; 0107 WRMI ID for 9395, more music, ``God bless the child`` and more jazzy. 0116 break for VOA News! Looks like another no-show, or did it run in the previous hour, 8 pm EDT, despite explicit publicity as 8 pm CT/01 UT? Music also on 5950 but too noisy to tell if it be // the same or the RAE English relay survived there (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9455, June 2 at 0634, WRMI announcement hitting S9, Oldies, much stronger than usual on this secret transmission; but 9395 is S9+20 with sermon by Biermann, i.e. *his* `Your Weekend Show` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5950, June 2 at 1702, JBA carrier which must be WRMI`s 24/7 broadcast; how are others doing? 9455, VP with music; 21525, VP with choral hymn. Too low, too high; at midday WRMI could be well audible, even inbooming if it were not silent on the 17, 15, 13 and 11 MHz bands. Strange frequency management (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5043 & 5057, June 3 at 0048, the WWRB program is producing some whistles consistently around these plus/minus 7 kHz offsets from 5050 carrier. Additional splash QRMs RHC even when 5040 tuned to LSB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1130, June 2 at 1718 UT quick check, KLEY Wellington KS is still SNAFU going into its fifth month (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13564, June 2 at 1322, JBA trace of CW, no doubt one of the two HIFER beacons around this kHz: GNK in Madison WI, or RF, circa VA/WV. Frequent chex of this ISM band usually yield less than this, i.e. nothing. At least Cuba is not blotting with 13700 spurs today (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15435, June 2 at 2218, JBA carrier, the OSOB except for big warmup from CUBA on 15730. Nothing listed, except in HFCC, JRT, AKA, Jordan in Arabic at 22-01, 500 kW, 300 degrees to W Europe --- yeah right, what an imagination! Less unlikely would be BSKSA running 4+ hours overtime; for Ramadan? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 90.1, June 1 at 1859/1900 UT, on caradio, more QRM than usual to KUCO, KHCC, fragment ``Carolina Public Radio`` heard. There are no 90.1 PR in NC, but in SC: WHMC in Conway and WEPR in Greenville. But by 1915 check, 6m map shows no VHF sporadic E openings anywhere over North America. Maybe random MS; or a program promo/credit from one of the nearby stations (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

CANADIAN COUNTY, Oklahoma - A crop duster aircraft crashed into a radio tower north of El Reno in Canadian County.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol and Canadian County officials crash and subsequent fire Wednesday evening.

The Piedmont Fire Department also assisted the Okarche Fire Department at the scene in the area of Memorial and Manning roads.

Officials have confirmed that the pilot of the aircraft has died.

OHP Trooper Mat Conway said the first 911 call came in at 5:13 p.m. Conway said the small plane hit the guide [sic] wires of the reported 1,200 [sic?? -foot?] Tyler Media radio tower.

According to Conway, the plane then crashed into a creek bed and burst into flames.

Investigators with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) will be on the scene Thursday morning.

PILOT REMEMBERED BY FAMILY AS CRASH INVESTIGATION CONTINUES
Posted: May 31, 2018 10:12 PM GST Updated: May 31, 2018 10:12 PM GST
By Caleigh Bourgeois, News 9

http://www.news9.com/story/38321425/pilot-remembered-by-family-as-crash-investigation-continues

CANADIAN COUNTY, Oklahoma - A family is mourning after a man lost his life in a plane crash north of El Reno Wednesday evening.

FAA and NTSB investigators are trying to figure out how a small crop-dusting plane ended up crashing.

Andrew Deterding, from Pond Creek has been identified as the victim.

Investigators say he was just doing his job Wednesday, crop-dusting for a client north of El Reno.

Deterdingâs plane got caught in some guy wires, taking down the plane and a radio tower.

"In talking to witnesses there on the scene, it was a crop-dusting plane and had struck some of the guy wires there and caused the aircraft to go down," Capt. Paul Timmons with Oklahoma Highway Patrol said.

The owner of the land where the crash occurred said he is a longtime client of Deterdingâs.

The pilotâs family posted a tribute to Facebook for Deterding on his company Facebook page:

"We lost a great man today. Andy was in a crash involving the guide [sic] wires on a radio tower and did not survive. I am at a complete loss of words, but a friend sent us this and it fits perfectly.

All we can be in this life.. is the best version of ourselves. We all try, Day by day. Andy, lived that way, each day. He would wake up, and make the world a better place by being the best human being he could. He did it through his laugh, his jokes, his smile, his heart. He instantly made me feel at ease, as it was easy to see his gold heart shine through his body. In all he did, he walked around with light beaming out of him. Everybody he came across was a better person after experiencing his light.

Dads memoryâs [sic] and stories will live on. Through every heart he touched. From family and friends to the foster kids we care for that he treated as his own grandchildren. We love you dad, and know you are in heaven on the look out for us."

Officials call Deterding an experienced pilot.

"I know this company's been in business for a while. So he was an experienced pilot, so I think it was just an unfortunate accident that occurred yesterday," Timmons said.

The owner of the radio tower, Ty Tyler of Tyler Media, says heâs heartbroken that Deterding lost his life, and is praying for the family.

When the investigation allows Tyler will work to get the radio station, KTUZ, back on air.

Investigators confirm Deterding was wearing a helmet and seatbelt at the time of the crash (via gh, DXLD)

Channel 9 chopper shots showed quite a mess of the tower on the ground. WTFK? 106.7, and indeed the frequency has been emptied. WTFDA FM Database info about it:

``KTUZ-FM 106.7 OKARCHE OK USA 13.0 13.0 292.0 292.0 35-36-49 97-52-19 Spanish 444D La Zeta 106.7 KTUZ-FM La Zeta 106.7 KTUZ-FM Classical REGIONAL MEXICAN LA Z 106.7``

Apparently no other FM BC or TV stations on that tower, which, NW of OKC, is quite removed from the NE OKC antenna farm. Deterding Aerial, north of Enid, is quite a landmark as one approaches Pond Creek from the south.

KTUZ call also applies to RF 29 nominally Shawnee with three Spanish TV networx. And to 1570 AM in Catoosa/Tulsa.

Own website linked from wikipedia, http://unidosok.com/okc/la-zeta/ has nothing about this! For the latest on what La Zeta is doing, one must refer to disgraced FB, June 1:

``La Zeta Oklahoma City [hace] 22 hrs Â
https://www.facebook.com/La-Zeta-Oklahoma-City-141974055838361/

El 30 de Mayo una avioneta se estrellà y derribà la torre de seÃal de nuestra estaciÃn. Lamentablemente, el piloto no sobreviviÃ. Nuestras oraciones estÃn con sus familiares y amigos. ??

Nuestro extraordinario equipo de ingenieros està trabajando arduamente para regresar la seÃal de KTUZ-FM-106.7FM. Por el momento, la programaciÃn de La Z està en el aire en nuestra estaciÃn hermana Ãxitos 96.5FM. Este cambio es temporal, en cuanto la seÃal de KTUZ regrese al 106.7FM, la programaciÃn habitual de Ãxitos volverà a la frecuencia 96.5. Gracias por su constante sintonÃa.``

96.5, is a mere translator, WTFDA listed as:
``K243BJ KRXO-FM-HD3 [origin] 96.5 OKLAHOMA CITY OK USA 0.25 0.25 302.0 0.0 35-24-54 97-30-32 Spanish 3F48 Exitos 96.5 FM! Exitos 96.5 FM Foreign Language OLDIES EXITOS 96.5``

``BTW, 106.7 KTUZ cannot be found on radio-locator --- have they already deleted it, or was it ever there? Not even by CoL Okarche. Just the 1570 KTUZ``

That`s what I wrote until I tried again. If you enter KTUZ-FM in the callsign search, you get an error message saying US stations have only 3 or 4 letters! Apparently you have to enter KTUZ, and then choose FM only. It says it is off the air:

** PHILIPPINES. 9615, May 31 at 1759, VP signal, FE language, full timesignal 30 seconds early, but a another 3-pip TS ending at 1800:07. OSOB outside North America, so a surprise. Aoki/NDXC shows:
``9615 1530-1830 PHL BBC Kor Tinang 1-7``. HFCC confirms it`s on a 21-degree antenna from IBB Tinang, which carries right on over North Korea to North America. Maybe the first TS was just SFX? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. 9475, May 31 at 2152, no signal from WTWW (nor on night frequency 5830). It may have been off all day?

9475.00, June 1 at 1326, VP signal unseems SFAW, rather KSDA GUAM scheduled this hour only in Chinese to the NW. And not off-frequency-minus like WTWW, but which is poorly audible at 1500. Must be that solar wind, K index of 5 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505, UT Fri June 1 at 0213, WRNO with music, 0217 own show M&W promoting Mawire`s book; so not Rick Wiles, TruNews as previously heard during this bihour, and expected to be Tue-Sat. Is he gone again or on more limited schedule, or what? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. RF 22, June 1 at 1410 UT, among several Bad DTV signals, the only DX decoding, on my opposite antenna, as predicted by Hepburn, a Level-7 intense tropo targeting central Kansas, i.e. Great Bend: 2-1 KSNC-DT; 2-2 T`mundo [sic]; 2-3 ION; 2-4 Justice; but soon losing out. This lineup updates/corrects W9WI.com as ``2.1:E:NBC, 2.2:E:ION, 2.3:E:Justice``

RabbitEars has all four, but with Ion and Telemundo reversed:
https://www.rabbitears.info/market.php?request=station_search&callsign=ksnc
but does have correct order for originating station KSNW Wichita:
https://www.rabbitears.info/market.php?request=station_search&callsign=ksnw#station

BTW, I have yet to see any repacking (lower channel changes) for my OK or any nearby DX stations. KSNC may stay on 22, but KSNW will move from 45 to 15, where it will be blocked by KOPX OKC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Oops, re WRMI, don`t know why I cited 9955 programming when referring to pre-emptions for the special on 9395. The 01-02 hour UT Tue-Sat on 9395 is normally of course RAE Argentina to the World, in English, so delete this:

What is being preÃmpted, at 01-02 UT
Saturday on 9955? Sked shows `Walking in Power` and
`Wavescan`. If you miss Hali this week, chances are good she
will replay 168 hours later unless original programming be
explicitly restored (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

And replace with this:

What is being preÃmpted, at 01-02 UT Saturday on 9395? RAE Argentina to the World in English, UT Tue-Sat, but should remain on // 5950 if you can get it. If you miss Hali this week, chances are good she will replay 168 hours later unless original programming be explicitly restored (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11760, May 31 at 1238 tune-in, RHC carrier is cutting off and on extremely rapidly, then cuts off completely; shortly back on with dead air, then adding modulation, or rather under-modulation, during sports report. 1345 recheck carrier is stable but still u/mod. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13767 & 13633, May 31 at 1338, RHC extremely distorted spurblobs with F# tones, out of 13700 transmitter are rampant again today, these closest ones clearest if tuned in FM mode; further at approx. 67 kHz intervals, upward: 13834, 13901, 13968? Downward: 13566 (spreading 13560-13573 at least, ruining the HIFER band), 13499, 13432, 13365, 13298-trace. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN [non]. 9860, May 31 at 0519, American English, VOA? No, NHK via VATICAN this semihour only (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 96.9, May 30 at 2015 UT as I am searching for Es FM DX (none found), I notice that my local KQOB (licensed to Enid, originally KCRC-FM, but for OKC market from tower midway near Crescent), has been rebranded yet again, ``The new Alice 96-9 FM, Oklahoma City`` (but keeping calls denoting ``Bob``, sort of). Not so new, perhaps, as it`s already as such in the WTFDA FM Database (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PHILIPPINES. 9920, May 31 at 1224, SE Asian song, poor signal. HFCC says it`s FEBC, 100 kW due west from Iba site, at 1200-1330; this semihour on Thursdays being in the ``Jar`` abbr`d language per NDXC/Aoki. WRTH reveals full name of language is Jarai. EiBi`s readme.txt enters it thus: ``JR Jarai / Giarai / Jra (Vietnam)`` without any figures on speakership, as most of those have been deleted. At 1230 Vietnamese announcement, just leading into another minolity language, abbr`d hre which stands for Hre, per WRTH.

[and non] I was checking 9920 in case R. Thailand had also moved its earlier broadcasts from 9390, and there was no signal. That`s because of a quarter-hour break after Malay 1200-1215 before English at 1230, and indeed carrier is on by 1229, but VP (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1932 monitoring: confirmed Wednesday May 30 at 2100 on WRMI 9955, fair S8-S9, and 6 words behind on WBCQ 7490, S0-S3. Now starts a long drought for WOR on SW from America until Saturday 2300; next:

** U S A. 9455, May 31 at 1218, WRMI still secretly transmitting here, S0-S3 with Oldies, 1219 ID and ad for cruises, with 800 number repeated but not enough to copy for sure; another ID, back to Oldies. This is *much* weaker than Brother Scare on 9395, and Prague on 9955.

9455 has been running its weak signal for a fortnight now; I first noted UT May 18, frequency back on air after original programming had all been moved to 5950, 24 hours, as of May 14.

As of May 31, *still* no sign of it on the WRMI transmission or program grids. I`ve also been on the lookout for anyone else logging it, and also zero! I assure everyone I am not imagining it. WRMI has also not replied to my May 19 inquiry about it. Maybe something on WRMI FB? NO. However, I do spot this:

``WRMI Radio Miami International May 25 at 12:43pm Â
Special Program June 1 --- Hali Palombo is an artist, musician and shortwave radio enthusiast. She creates soundscapes - aural archaeology that observes her life and the world around her both from a magnifying glass and a space shuttle. Her work is sometimes funny and sometimes scary. She lives and works in Chicago, IL. On Friday, June 1 from 8:00 to 9:00 pm Central Time (i.e. 0100-0200 UT June 2), Hali will present her new instrumental record on WRMI on 9395 kHz.

[replies:] Jerry Lane: This is fantastic! Just took some time to go through some of those samples and listen to a little bit of her work. I'm definitely going to tune in. Every bit of this is right up my alley. Thanks, WRMI, for being so awesome!

WRMI Radio Miami International: And listen for some shortwave radio excerpts in her new record and her program on June 1!``

What is being preÃmpted, at 01-02 UT Saturday on 9955? Sked shows `Walking in Power` and `Wavescan`. If you miss Hali this week, chances are good she will replay 168 hours later unless original programming be explicitly restored (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505, May 30 at 0105, WRNO is still not on, no Rick Wiles yet. It is on with algo at 0517, very poor; and very good still with Chinese at 1211 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 12250-AM, May 31 at 1342, dead air with flutter at S9/S9+10. Suspected ChiCom jammer on QRX, but not listed by NDXC/Aoki as a SOH frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs
** CUBA. 6100, May 29 at 0545, this RHC English frequency during music is S7-S9 but modulation and carrier are breaking up rapidly. // 6000, 6060, 6165 are relatively OK. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13567 approx., May 29 at 1355, first find the RHC horribly distorted spurblobs are back, starting here vs the Part 15 HIFER band. Out of 13700 transmitter, also 13501, 13438?, 13634, 13766, 13832, 13898, 13963, 14039? I.e. approx. 66 kHz intervals. Usual F# tone accompanying and the closer ones are somewhat readable if tuned in FM mode. Some days these are rampant, some days absent. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1932, DX LISTENNG DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7254.932, May 29 at 0548 tune-in, surprised to find Voice of Nigeria bigsig aimed USward on the air already and in English! Hard to follow the speaker with heavy accent, soon into music break, 0551 talking again, discussion about opulence, but cut off the air abruptly at 0553:16* --- so I guess VON was just tuning up for the 0600 Hausa broadcast.

Recheck at 0607 however, is back on and again in English, about the economy. Talkers on this transmitter are generally very bassy, so PBT to boost the treble helps a little. May have been a special event about Nigeria`s corruption, likely back to Hausa hour hence (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1932, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA [non]. 7220, May 29 at 0547, S9 but poor signal, presumed R. Dandal Kura, as sked this hour only, 100 kW, 167 degrees via FRANCE. Another hour I hear even less is 06-07 on 11910, ditto (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1931 monitoring: not confirmed Mon May 28 at 2330 on WBCQ 9330v, just BS, altho yesterday was gh + BS at once. Confirmed UT Tuesday May 29 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, VG S9+20. Just barely audible Tuesday May 29 at 2030 on WRMI 7780, sounds like gh intonation; inaudible on 5950.

This and the next broadcast at 2130 in the summer daytimes should be on much higher bands per basic propagation, such as 11-13-15 MHz.

** U S A. 5085, UT Tue May 29 at 0544, WTWW-2 is off again, like UT Mon, while UT Sun before and after 0600 it was running that wacky new talk show, `Southern Talk at Midnight`, so maybe it is once a week, from 0500? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1932, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15815, May 29 at 1403, WTWW with classic rock music, S9+10 (while neighbor in more ways than one, 15825 WWCR is S9+20, both with sporadic E boost); still past 1420 and 1530. Not rechecked until 2206, when 15815 is *still* on with music, but considerably weakened. Took yesterday, Memorial Day off, unheard. Anyhow I`ve added it to the BST-1 caradio memory bank, the better to keep track of what the new frequency is doing; from this station there is little hope for anything rational, and I would not be surprised if they are testing for a new gospel-huxter client (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1932, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505v, UT Tue May 29 at 0253, quick check of WRNO sounds like Rick Wiles, indicating his revived `TruNews` [sic] runs 01-03 UT Tue-Sat here. WRNOworldwide website still has not put up any program schedule info since May 1 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1932, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. I`m parked a few miles N of Enid near the US 81/64/60 junxion, so do a quick bandscan for possible sporadic E DX; none here so far this year, and it`s about time. Lots of frequencies have CCI, stations fading back and forth, but I`m afraid this was just due to hot turbulent troposphere nearby. Several frequencies check out to be fringe Kansans or Oklahomans, except:

97.3, May 28 at 1953 UT, ``Q97`` ID. WTFDA FM Database leads to:
KQHN Waskom TX, but supposedly really known as ``Q97.3``, with 42 kW at 162.5 m. Waskom is right on the border west of Shreveport LA, 348 miles/559 km, rather unlikely, OR:

``Q-97`` with a hyphen (unspoken of course) would be KNCQ, Redding CA, 28 kW, 1088m, possible but far for Es, 1354 miles/2179 km; OR:

``Q 97`` with a space (unspoken of course), this must be it: KKJQ, 100 kW, 244m, Garden City KS, listed ``Q 97 FM``, 198 miles/318 km.

This is a good example of how one must outwit the search funxions with all possible varieties of what sounds like a simple explicit slogan.

106.3, May 28 at 1948 UT, ad for Wichita Falls, so Texas not Kansas. WTFDA DB shows KBZS, 50 kW/129m, The Buzz, but PS Info as KZBS instead. Who made the typo? FCC FM Query agrees it is really KBZS; BTW, FMQ now includes a station logotype, which leads to a profile page without all the tech details, but address, etc. 175 miles/282 km, city-to-city distance. I`d rather hear much closer KGOU Norman, public radio on 106.3, but it`s only 6 kW, 88.7 m HAAT (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
