Logs
** CUBA. 11876 & 11884, Sept 11 at 1359, weak spurblobs out of 11880
very strong dead air prior to China Plus relay, which continues until
undermodulation finally comes up at 1404, missing most of CRI `news`.
But the spurs were tweaked away at 1401. Something`s always wrong at
RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15143.05, 15146.1, 15133.9, 15130.8 approx., Sept 11 at 2045,
weak spurs out
of RHC 15140 open but unusually strong and crackling carrier at S9+25.
Should also be one at 15136.95 but not noted. 15140 is supposed to
quit at 2030 after French. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, Sept 12 at 0553, RHC English is S9+20 but just barely
modulated. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 1050, Sept 12 at 0602, XEG Monterrey with super-hype voice
actor full Spanish ID claiming 100,000 watts ``en efectivo``, the
strongest station in Mexico or the US. Effective? meaning in a certain
direxion, but less transmitter power? That term is usually applied to
FM where ERP is almost always much greater than transmitter power,
taking into account antenna gain. Still plenty of QRM, and XEG has not
been the dominant 1050 signal at night for a long time, so I question
their claim. And it`s supposedly ND day and night. IRCA Mexican Log
shows nothing but 100/100 kW and it`s also $ tereo with no FM (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SRI LANKA. 15430, Sept 12 at 1328, bit of S Asian song, dead air,
1330 resumes YL announcement and hymn. Aoki shows AWR via Trincomalee
in Bengali until 1330, nothing afterwards. But EiBi has it: 1330-1400
daily in KHS language, i.e. ``Khasi / Kahasi: India-Meghalaya, Assam
(0.8m) [kha]`` --- so how many of the 800K speakers are really
listening to this, and of them, how many are converting to 7D
Adventism?? Believe it or not, this transpolar is the strongest signal
on band, S4-S7, much more than US or Cuban signals on 15825, 15230,
15140, 15115 DRM (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1998 monitoring: Not confirmed Wednesday Sept
11 at 2100 on WRMI 9955; does not cut on until *2059:43 with one
iteration of IS & ID, and then, and then, something in French!
Mentions paix, instead of WOR. Yes it`s a new time for Radio For Peace
International, as clearly IDed at 2109, altho the websked still shows
WOR as of 1512 UT Sept 12; and the RFPI times only as Friday 2000-2100
15770; UT Sun 0000-0100 5950 9395. So goes another of our longtime
spots on WRMI.

Confirmed Wed Sept 11 after 2100 on WBCQ webcast while 7490.2v is a
JBA carrier.

Also confirmed UT Thu Sept 12 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, JBA in HNL.

Next WOR 1999 should be ready by early Friday Sept 13 (if not delayed
by storms), for first broadcasts at 2200 on 9955, UT Sat new time 0130
on 5010 & 5850, and also 7780 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISITENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. Since AW keeps twitting that the WBCQ SuperStation (I call
SS, not to be confused with Spanish; make that S-S?) will be back on
the air shortly testing its latest frequency assignments, 12120, 15705
and 17735, I keep random checking, but nothing heard yet, nor on 9330:
Sept 10 at 2058; Sept 11 at 1658; Sept 12 at 1544. Latest twits of
Sept 11 and 10 provide good looks at Allan, and Angela:
https://twitter.com/AllanWBCQ

Meanwhile, check out this audiovideo from World`s Last Chance, the
bison-beastly anti-American nonsense in store for us:
https://www.worldslastchance.com/view-video/2849/image-of-the-beast-is-here.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5890, Sept 11 at 0546, WWCR back to its old trix, running
S9+40 of dead air, far outside its scheduled hours; while the others:
5935, S9+30 of DGS; 4840, S9+30 of Paul Joseph somebody; 3215,
S9+10/20 presumably TOMBS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 860, Sept 12 at 1224-1226 UT, KKOW Pittsburg KS is still
playing a polka every morning, with English lyrix, outro as ``--- Be
My Sweetheart``. Segment also greets birthdayers, in this case the DJ
himself who will take his day off tomorrow (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Re the three 1540s in Texas, after my report of KGBC
Galveston off-frequency-minus, Stephen Luce, Houston replies:

``Glenn, KGBC is no longer running the Tejano format, having switched
to Spanish language religion a few months ago. During critical hours I
have heard KEDA underneath KGBC, so it might be them.

"Tejano" refers to Texas Hispanics (particularly south Texas) whose
families have lived in the state for many generations. The Tejano
music style enjoyed its peak popularity in the 1990's, but has fizzled
since then, with little new product being released. There have been
attempts to revive it on radio, but the listener demographics skew too
old, which is why the format failed on KGBC (not to mention the poor
1540 AM signal in the broader Houston market.)

Also, has anyone confirmed what co-channel KZMP in Dallas-Fort Worth
is now running following the demise of ESPN Deportes Radio?``

To which Mauno Ritola, Finland, replies: ``Stephen, they have been
heard relaying KXYZ 1320, but apparently not all the time? Seems to
carry ranchera, just checked, attached. KZMP 1540.mp3``

ID on that is ``La Ranchera 103.7`` --- but in the WTFDA FM DB, not a
single Texan of the dozen on 103.7 is Spanish, let alone ranchera, and
the local one for The Metroplex would surely be KVIL, still shown as
alternative rock. Or were they saying 106.7?? Hard to distinguish in
off-air-recording. YES! WTFDA DB already has it:

``KZZA 106.7 MUENSTER TX 75.0 75.0 620.0 620.0 33-26-13 97-29-05
Spanish 548E Title & Artist La Ranchera La Authentica [sic] Musica
Mexicana 106.7 FM Rock [sic] RANCHERA LA RANCHERA 106.7 //KZMP 1540``

One might expect Muenster to be speaking German rather than Spanish; a
town of 1.5 kilopersons, it`s way out west of Gainesville on the way
to Wichita Falls (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs
** NIGERIA. 11769.903, Sept 9 at 2033, VON one of better 25mb signals
at this time, S9-S7 but very undermodulated, can`t tell the language
but presumably not English. Must also check here when 7254.9 be
missing for the 0600 broadcast, as Ivo Ivanov found it on instead,
``Voice of Nigeria on wrong 11770v, instead of 7255v kHz, September 10
from 0600 Hausa, from 0700 Fulfulde and upcoming from 0800 English``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 930, Sept 10 at 0028 UT, WKY OKC in English! With the
demise of ESPN-D[eportes], what to do with this legacy station? Sports
talk in English! In fact, at 0047 plugs sibling station WWLS The
Sports Animal (98.1) which is also on KWPN 640 Moore, but not // at
the moment. At 0201 UT I find that 930 is // 640 but running 7 seconds
behind it. And again at 0620 UT when both are on ESPN Radio (in
English).

What a great variety Radio License Holding CBC, LLC are providing!
BTW, these two stations are not part of any other AM cluster in OKC.
according to FCC Licensee info. Oh, yeah?

At 1459 UT Sept 10, I monitor the ToH breaks on all three stations.
640 and 930 are not // but 930 is // 98.1, if not synched. At 1502
legal ID on 98.1 starts with WWLS, then a bunch of mostly AM
affiliates all over OK, to which WKY has been added at the end; as
part of Cumulus. And the same multi-station ID comes around 27 seconds
later on 930. But FCC AM Query shows Cumulus is *not* the licensee of
any AM station in OK. How about FM? Allegedly, ONLY ONE: 107.3 KOMS
Poteau! What is going on here? Well, RLH CBC LLC must be a subsidiary
of Cumulus, but why? Try to reach the former on Wikipedia and you are
redirected to Cumulus without explanation. Could CBC stand for the
obvious?

On FM, the following in OK are licensed to Radio License Holding CBC
LLC, per FCC FM Query: WWLS-FM 98.1 The Village [NW OKC suburb where I
used to live], KYIS 98.9 OKC, KATT 100.5 OKC, KKWD 104.9 Bethany.
Except for 104.9 which I could not hear anyway, the other three FM
would get knocked off the air simultaneously via storms.

WKY used to run some commercials and PubAffs shows in English; so now
will they insert anything in Spanish? When ESPN-D appeared, WKY
dismissed their ``La Indomable`` Spanish DJ staff. From Nov. 2014:
http://www.w4uvh.net/WKY930AM-ad.jpg

Former ESPN-D affiliates everywhere must be trying to find something
to replace it; will English or Spanish prevail? See my recent report
of 1650 KSVE El Paso TX (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1580, Sept 9 at 1757 UT, I notice that KOKB Blackwell is
back on the air; might have resumed Sept 8 before I noticed. Had been
off since at least Sept 3 (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 88.3, as of Sept 10, I have been meaning to note that the
Family Radio satellator in Enid, K202BY, has been totally off the air
again for about a week. Not just dead air! A little less QRM for my SW
caradio feeder set on 88.3; and with it off, 88.3 open again for KOSR
Stillwater, if not DX (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1998 monitoring: confirmed UT Tuesday Sept 10
at 0100 on WRMI, 7780, fair in noise level. Next:
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955 to SSE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0100 UT Thursday WRMI 7780 to NE

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9475 & 5830, Sept 9 at 2035, WTWW-1 is off now and most of
the time rather than on with SFAW PPPP (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 1490, Sept 10 at 0625 UT, ``The Entertainer`` by Joplin on
piano is just ending as some signal is briefly atop the graveyard
jungle/jumble, then ``The Fabulous 1490, KDMO`` YL ID, seems to loop
NE/SW before fade. That`s Carthage MO, near Joplin, ENE. Could Scott`s
tunes be thematic for Joplinites? Still NOStalgia format. Previously
logged here Sept 7, 2017 at 1240 UT.

BTW, not to be confused with KDMO, the airport ID in Sedalia MO
beyond, which runs beacon DMO on 281 kHz as reported by Harold Frodge,
MI. Nor with Sedalia`s 1490 station, KDRO! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. [Originally neat typo: UNIFRNYIGIRF]. 12573-USB, Sept 10
at 1338, 2-way in colloquial Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING

Under such circumstances, how do you know this is Para instead of the other ZY on 4885, Rdif. Acreana? Para is supposedly 24h per WRTH while Acreana is not? Glenn

How do you know this is #14 with LPH. Not on schedules. Has WRMI confirmed this, as from Okeechobee? 14 is the only xmtr sked on 181 antenna at other times on 5010, 22-02 & 11-12/1230. When on, does 5010 also hop around unstably?

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1998 monitoring: Ivo Ivanov,
Observer in Bulgaria reports:

``GERMANY, World of Radio#1998 via Hamburger Lokalradio, September 8
1031-1100 7265 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg to CeEu English Sun, weak signal
https://swldxbulgaria.blogspot.com/2019/09/world-of-radio1998-via-hamburger_8.html
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AR8koOrLQyA&feature=youtu.be
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Ld2Kgip9Bw&feature=youtu.be

Very low frequency for this time slot 09-12, probably needed change:
0600-0900 7265 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg CeEu various Sat, ex now 6190
0900-1200 9485 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg CeEu various Sat, ex now 6190
1200-1500 6190 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg CeEu various Sat, ex now 9485
0900-1200 9485 GOH 001 kW / 230 deg CeEu various Sun, ex now 7265

That way there will be no QRM from R. Romania Int 1200-1500 on 9490
1200-1300 9490 SAF 100 kW / 300 deg WeEu Romanian R.Romania Inter
1300-1500 9490 GAL 300 kW / 285 deg WeEu Romanian R.Romania
Inter``

I agree with his recommendations and have forwarded them to HLR.

WOR confirmed Sunday September 8 at 2149, the 2130 on WRMI 7780, fair
vs noise level.

Also confirmed UT Monday September 9 at 0130 on WRMI 7780, poor vs
HNL, // S9+10 on 9395.

Also confirmed UT Monday September 9 at 0243, the 0230 on WRMI 7780,
poor.

Also confirmed UT Monday September 9 starting at 0301 on Area 51
webcast; and JBA at 0328 check on WBCQ 5130.35v.

Also confirmed UT Monday September 9 at 0330 on WRMI 9955, VP S5
signal faded way down by now.

Regarding the UT Sun 0130 on 5850 overtaken by VORW, Jeff White has
agreed to add WOR to UT Sat 0130 on 5850 to the NW for the foreseeable
future. Unless there be further changes, this may also be // 5010 to
the south, and already simulscheduled on 7780 to NE. Next:

1816 UT Monday IRRS 7290 Romania ND

** U S A. 15825 & 13845, Sept 9 at 1451, WWCRs hitting S9+30 rather
than JBA carriers, demonstrating that HF sporadic E is still in play;
ham Es map at 1526 shows only one Es spot over Georgia with 82 MHz
MUF; and no contacts on 28 MHz. But at 1625 there is a 32 MHz MUF
about halfway between Nashville and here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1539.95 approx., Sept 8 at 0602 UT, LAH against 1540.0
stations such as KXEL. I`ve been noticing this for some time. On MW
with all the QRM, it`s harder to measure to three decimal places. In
the past this has been KGBC Galveston TX. DF seems to fit, and
apparently it is off-minus still or again, as Terry Krueger, now moved
to Niceville FL in the Panhandle, has just reported to DXLD:

``1539.903, TEXAS, KGBC, 0918 August 28, 2019. Very poor, with
Mexi-tunes on peaks, and confirmed it's KGBC per D. Crawford who had
it a few days earlier and since on 1539.903. And not to be confused
with the still off-channel and variable KBOA Kennett MO on
1539.996-1540.005, this check on the low side with "Too Much, Too
Little, Too Late" by Denice Williams & Johnny Mathis.``

Per 2019/2020 NRC AM Log, which does not deal with offfrequenciness,
latest KGBC format is Tejano, U4 2500/250 watts. Beware, so is KEDA
San Antonio, Tejano, which I guess refer only to music style. However,
música is feminine, so why isn`t it called ``tejana``; machismo [where
the ch is not pronounced k!]? Also, is it possible for a station
outside Texas to be Tejano? Or e.g. if it play the same style of music
from OK, would it be ``Oclajomano``? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 12125-USB, 13519-USB, 13788-USB, Sept 8 at 1315 within a
minute on bandscan, weak 2-ways in Spanish all here, the last being
INTRUDERS into the SWBC band (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
