Logs
** ANTARCTICA. 15475.979, Oct 3 at 1336, JBA carrier on signature
off-frequency of LRA36; hardly any reports of them elsewhere the past
week and wondered if still active almost every day (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WORLD OF RADIO 2002, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 2749-USB, Oct 4 at 0307, after a summer of no reception,
JBA YL talk on Canadian Coast Guard marine weather frequency; having
misplaced link to CCG schedule, I find this worldwide one:
https://www.hfunderground.com/wiki/Maritime_Weather_Transmissions
which shows VCS Halifax NS starting 2749 at 0240; nothing now/yet on
2598-USB, the further and weaker NL channel (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 15565, Oct 4 at 0003, not much on 19m, but a fadey S7 signal
in Chinese here, i.e. CNR1 jammer vs VOA Chinese via Thailand;
certainly not either Radio Thailand to North in English on 15590
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15370 // 15140, Oct 2 at 1942, RHC in English on both
frequencies; supposed to be 15140 only and 15370 other languages. This
follows dead air on both the other day. Something`s always wrong at
RHC. But interesting cultural item about Carmina Burana performed as a
dance after winning some award in Mexico? That I`d like to hearsee.
Soon into mandatory anti-American propaganda, how José Martí became
disillusioned with America after visiting it. But how was he to know
that in the next century, America would name a major radio and TV
service for him?! 2001 both into Arabic instead of French on 15140. By
2049 check, 15370 in Portuguese, 15140 off.

This on the BST-1 caradio; at first I did a double take when I heard
RHC English twice on the memory scan thinking I mishit the button, but
another time around, Morse readout of frequencies confirmed both. BTW,
this radio was out of commission for a while, as the antenna coax
broke; turns out it had been flexing forever out of sight as it went
into the trunk, every time it opened and closed; spliced it back
together and as good as new (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2002, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5040, Oct 3 at 0535, RHC in Spanish instead of English, and
just barely modulated. Same situation Oct 4 at 0321 during a song,
S9+20 but JBM. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, Oct 3 at 0537, surprised to hear the weakened voice of
Arnie Coro on RHC English --- is it his `Breakthru` science show? No,
despite being UT Thursday, it`s `DXers Unlimited` with ham radio
equipment topic. Hard to follow as he speaks too fastly and
indistinctly. Soon at 0540, outro as ``weekend edition of DXUL``! So
they are playing back the Sunday hour instead of Wednesday! And the
midweek should have aired the night before. Something`s always wrong
at RHC. There is a tremendously sad disparity between his ailing voice
now and the canned outro recorded years ago when he was in full voice.
Mandatory anti-American propaganda follows, `Connecting the Dots`
about the many sins of Andrew Jackson against native Americans;
certainly true but only the worst of American history may be
mentioned. What about the fate of the Taíno in Cuba?? 6100 is best of
the lot by far, S9+30 with good modulation; 6165 is JBA! 6000 is
undermodulated at S9-S7 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15140, Oct 3 at 1339, S9 of dead air from RHC while 15230 is
OK, not an unusual situation. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13566 S9, 13633 S9+10, 13768 S9, 13835 S9, Oct 9 at 1400,
approx. centers of panoply of FM spurblobs out of RHC 13700-AM at
approx. intervals of 65-68 kHz, but none detectable further out circa
13500 & 13900, not even the F# tone which accompanies program audio on
the closer ones. Unlike 13700 itself, the stronger spurs are about
equally readable in FM or AM mode. Some days these are present, other
days not at all; how does RHC manage that, where something is always
wrong? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9620-9660, Oct 3 at 1450, RHC 9640 is still surrounded by a
buzzfield, also audible at the center along with some hum. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15370, Oct 3 at 1946, RHC in Arabic, supposed to be in
French; while 15140 succeeds to be in English. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11760, Oct 3 at 2353, RHC is off its #1 frequency so I check
for others: also off, 11850 and its 11840/11860 spurs; and 11670.
Still on this band, 11700 in Spanish and 11950 Mesa Redonda until
2400. 13740 and 7380 also missing; 9535, 9640, 5040, 6000 still on and
the 5990 CRI relay. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15120, Oct 4 at 0001, CRI relay is dead air; 15730 RHC is
very poor but modulated. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUATEMALA [and non]. 4055, Oct 4 at 0309, S9 to S9+10 of open
carrier, dead air from TGAV, Radio Truth/Verdad, just like WBCQ 7490.1
and WRMI 7780. At least the electric companies benefit (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** PHILIPPINES. 12110, Oct 3 at 2351, S5-S7 JBA talk; scheduled as VOA
Burmese via Tinang, 2330-2430 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN [and non]. 9690, Oct 2 at 2102, REE North American frequency
is off. 11670 for Africa also continues AWOL; 12030 to ME is S9-S8 of
dead air once again --- leaving only one in service, 11940 to S
America but VP here. 9690 not a propagation problem since Greek music
OK on 9420 at 2105. Yet a sesquihour earlier at 1930, Wolfgang
Bueschel reported 9690 on, and also 12030 apparently then with
modulation too; during a silly ballgame (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF
RADIO 2002, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [non]. 9740, Oct 2 at 2107, W&M talking, VP and not sure of
language, then recognize English; China? No, scheduled as VOA in
French this semihour weekdays, via Woofferton. Maybe a bit of English
mixed in language lesson? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2001 monitoring: confirmed Wed Oct
2 at 2100 on WBCQ 7490.070v, fair S7-S8. I`m not upcut here but
instead automation chops off last half of ``Q`` in singing ID before
music can resolve, and starts WOR on time; this has happened for quite
a while.

Also confirmed UT Thursday Oct 3 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, poor-fair.

WORLD OF RADIO 2002 contents: Albania, Antarctica, Ustralia, Austria,

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330, as of Oct 3 at 1448 and 1945 chex, still no signals
from WBCQ; in fact I think nothing since the Sept 28 AAAWWW when it
was not the 500 kW. Nor has AW twitted anything about it the past
week. Setup stalled even with techs helping from the manufacturers?
Aren`t the WLC flat-earthers paying for it getting impatient? Gotta
get this going before the world ends! Remember the target date had
been last July. Maybe more news on AAAWWW this week from 0000 UT
Saturday on 7490v et al. (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2002, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. 7490.1, Oct 4 at 0310, S5-S9 of dead air from
WBCQ. 7780 WRMI and 4055 TGAV are also open carrier now; situation
contagious? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. 7780, Oct 4 at 0311, WRMI is S9-S8 of dead air; so
is WBCQ 7490.1 and 4055 TGAV; hey stations, wake up or turn off (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15555-USB, Oct 2 at 2050, WJHR again audible on proper
frequency but JB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5072.010 and 5097.988, Oct 4 at 0322 I am still detecting
the JBA parasitic spur carriers out of WTWW-2 where music modulation
is audible only on VG S9+30 fundamental measured on 5085.002, i.e.
approx. 12.99 kHz above and below; used to be more like 12.90; Ted
adjusted? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1560, Oct 4 at 0249 UT, Vietnamese song at usual good signal
level from KGOW Bellaire (Houston) TX, and // 1480 KNGO The Metroplex
but not synchronized. Checking this because earlier Oct 3, Paul Walker
posted:

``Everyone's favorite ethnic station, Viet Radio 1560 KGOW
Bellaire/Houston is completely off the air due to flooding from
Tropical Depression Imelda that has "Detrimentally affected the
transmission equipment". They are completely off the air instead of
using the separate day or night site full time like last time when the
day site got flooded``. He then clarified that KGOW had applied to FCC
today for an STA to be off the air; and someone in Houston said 1560
was off at 21 UT.

I pointed out that Imelda flooding in Houston was old news from a
sesquiweek ago, and that I was still hearing KGOW last night or this
morning.

Scott Fybush replied, ``I was in Houston in the immediate aftermath of
Imelda, from the 19th until the 22nd. KGOW was on the air every time I
checked. I didn't go out to its transmitter site(s), so I don't know
which site it was using or what the state of those sites might have
been.

(Based on my visits and conversations with the local engineers, there
was no flooding damage to any Houston broadcast sites, though I was
unable to visit KTRH 740 because the road leading to the site was
underwater. There were no signals off the air or noticeably at reduced
power while I was there.)

KGOW's sites are pretty far west, as I recall. The flooding was
predominantly east. I'm not saying KGOW didn't suffer some sort of
damage... but what it's telling the FCC doesn't match up very well
with what I saw and heard last month.``

As for KYND 1520, Stephen Luce, Houston replies Oct 3 on the WOR iog
to my previous report: ``The station has been off the air since
September 25. Operation had been highly irregular prior to that
date``. So was that because of flooding? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

This report despatched at 0619 UT October 4

UNIDENTIFIED. 1560, Oct 4 at 0305 UT, USA Radio News concluding as QRM
to KGOW just checked in Vietnamese. That network only applies to three
1560 daytimers in the NRC AM Log, KTUI Sullivan MO, or WCNW Fairfield
OH or WFSP Kingwood WV (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Wednesday, October 02 2019

Logs
** ARGENTINA [non]. 7780, Oct 1 at 2227 WRMI with music, sounds like
Oldies, or rather scheduled APS Radio; and 9395 with different music,
gospel? Thus RAE`s German hour, which they are still sending to WRMI,
has got lost, supposed to be M-F 22-23 on 9395 per both WRMI and RAE
skeds (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CHINA. 9155, Oct 2 at 1256, VP Chinese, and weaker 9180, both CNR1
jammed SOH frequencies. Altho did not do an exhaustive continuous
bandscan, no more WOOB noticed in the 11s, 13s but a JBA carrier at
1320 on 14980, which also qualifies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15370, Oct 1 at 1931, RHC is S8 of dead air, and so is 15140
at S9+20. 15140 is supposed to be amid first airing of English hour
while 15370 is supposed to be starting French. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 7380, Oct 1 at 2226, RHC is in choking Arabic instead of
scheduled French to Africa! Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6100, Oct 2 at 1248, RHC is on but undermixed with FE, CRI
Beijing in Russian and/or KCBS Pyongyang, in any event Commies vs
Commies vs Commies! RHC also in clear on stronger 6000 which also
produces a good harmonic on 12000, while there is nothing on 12200.
Such a signal on 12000 makes me wonder if RHC deliberately allow 6000
to harmonicize, since in past 12000 has been a legit RHC fundamental,
but not so scheduled now, any more than the 11980 harmonic of the 5990
CRI relay. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9620-9670 approx., Oct 2 at 1301, lopsided buzz field out of
9640 RHC which itself is crackly and hummy. Worst peaks about 9627 and
9653. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13700, Oct 2 at 1303, this RHC has just come on joining 13740
on band which started earlier. 13700 is notably weaker at S9/+10 than
13740 S9+20/30, and also less modulated. And also fails to provide any
FM spur constellation. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15140, Oct 2 at 1308, this RHC is dead air and weaker than
modulated stronger S9+20 15230. 1423 recheck 75 minutes later, 15140
*still* dead air and 15230 VG. Is no one paying attention at Titán,
site Aoki-listed for both in the morning, whether a transmitter be
modulating at all? Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GUAM. 9455, Oct 2 at 1258 music, 1259 AWR Guam sign-off with
details such as 100,000 watts, but never mentions KSDA callsign! Is
that a violation? At end of daily Korean hour and off (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 1000, Oct 2 at 0611 UT Mexican music with slow SAH against
KTOK OKC nulled, 0614 ``La Rancherita`` ID over music. IRCA log says:

``1000 XEFV Chih Ciudad Juarez 1000 ---- La Rancherita Mil AM 24h
RAN/NOR MEGA No FM. License expired but AM is still active 7/19``

The SAH is about the same as I get from KKIM Albuquerque but no sign
of it now, and there was no sign of XEFV when I last heard KKIM. So I
wonder if XEFV be erratic? Altho 24h, IRCA leaves blank its night
power (Glenn Hauser, OK, DXLISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1020, KOKP: See USA, starting with 1020 KDKA

** OKLAHOMA. 1210, Oct 2 at 1238 UT, KGYN with ``The Five States` Big
Talker`` slogan. They`ve had a CP longtime for 50/10/CH39 kW instead
of U2 10/10, but will it ever eventuate? There was once talk of moving
the whole thing to the OKC market, getting rid of 1220 KTLV, but FCC
now shows almost exactly the same east-of-Guymon coordinates both for
the current LIC and CP; the CP only one second of longitude further
east or about 82 feet (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 17, Oct 2 and always, the latest reboot a few weeks
ago of K17JN-D Enid has kept it on the air with no further tech
problems, except it is permanently IDing falsely: ``DTV 41-1
KCYH-LD``! As explained before, that is its parent station in Ardmore,
on the other side of OK, whose software must have been imported here,
overwriting any reference to its true call K17JN-D which always
appeared before on the PSIP. Still 3ABN with a bunch of extra video
channels as 41-3 silent: (unsupported audio codec``), 41-5, 41-6, and
``audio only`` as 41-7, 41-8 and 41-9.

Are such false IDs a fineable offense? Has anyone seen anything like
this anywhere else? If any DXer picked this up she would surely assume
it was transmitted from Ardmore, not Enid, depriving this city of its
only local TV signal, despite some others licensed here such as RF9,
but really in OKC if on the air at all. There were/are others really
in Tulsa or even Kansas (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 28. KFOR-TV OKC has been plugging Nexstar as if it is
now part of that. It is; I found this notice at
https://www.nexstar.tv/nexstar_tribune_closing_webcast_2019/

``Nexstar Media Group and Tribune Media Closing Webcast
September 20, 2019

Nexstar Media Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: NXST) (“Nexstar”) completed its
previously announced acquisition of Tribune Media Company (NYSE: TRCO)
(“Tribune Media”) in an accretive transaction, creating the nation’s
largest local broadcaster. Nexstar is hosting conference call and
webcast at 10:00 a.m. ET on Friday, September 20 to review the
transaction and host a question and answer session.

To access the conference call, interested parties may dial
334/777-6978 (domestic and international callers). The Conference ID
Number is 2037601. Please call five minutes in advance to ensure that
you are connected. Questions and answers will be taken only from
participants on the conference call.

below). For the webcast, please allow 15 minutes to register, download
and install any necessary software. A webcast replay will be available
for 90 days following the live event at www.nexstar.tv.

Nexstar Tribune Closing Investor Presentation``

Isn`t this entirely too much media ownership concentration? I hope
Nexstar politix are not as anti-American as Sinclair`s.

``Nexstar owns, operates, programs or provides sales and other
services to 197 television stations (including partner stations) in
115 markets or approximately 63% of all U.S. television households
including 142 local web sites and 316 local news and weather mobile
apps.``

Here`s their station roster and a map including KFOR in OKC as market
rank 45 (rabbitears.info has had it at only 50).
https://www.nexstar.tv/stations/
How can such smaller cities as Harrisburg PA, Spartanburg SC, outrank
OKC??? Hagerstown MD is #6??? One of the largest cities, San Diego CA
is #29??

``(1) Market rank refers to ranking the size of the Designated Market
Area (“DMA”) in which the station is located in relation to other
DMA’s. Source: Investing in Television Market Report 2008 4th Edition,
as published by BIA Financial Network, Inc.``

It shows all the subchannels with each station --- not quite, not yet
CBS` Dabl on KFOR`s #4. At least KFOR is Nexstar`s only property in OK
so far, along with sibling RF-19 KAUT ``43``. This ensures that RF 25,
KWTV ``9`` may still continue its self-promotion as OKC`s only
locally-owned station (Glenn Hauser, OK, October 1, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** SAO TOME E PRINCIPE. 15660, Oct 1 at 1928, HOA music, VP S2-S3,
gone at 1930. Aoki/NDXC shows it`s VOA Pinheira at 1900-1930 M-F in
Tigrinya. Other VOA usage of 15660: 1800-1900 daily Amharic via
Woofferton; 1730-1800 M-F Oromo via STP; 1400-1500 Sat/Sun Kirundi via
STP. Propagation is so poor that any extra-continental signal like
this on 19m is notable. Except as an unaccented country header, STP
should be spelt São Tomé e Príncipe (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 9870, Oct 1 at 1938, S5-S7 of dead air. Scheduled
18-23 is SA in Arabic (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9830, Oct 1 at 2224, VOT is JBA in absence of RTTY,
undermodulated S6-S9 so English to North America is still a loss
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 8992-USB, Oct 2 at 1255, test count and ``Andrews, out``.
Believe this is same frequency with echoey encrypted broadcasts, also
from Andrews AFB, MD? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15555-USB, Oct 1 at 1929, WJHR gospel huxter is S1, back
here after an inexplicable spell on 15550-USB, but mostly inaudible,
unpropagable, or off? Now there must be a sporadic E boost over this
1190 km/740 mile path from Milton FL, as 15610 WEWN AL is also way
above normal, S9+20, but not 15825 WWCR TN, still JBA. At 1955 I check
the Es DX-map, seeing one 25 MHz MUF blob over Atlanta (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 870, Oct 2 at 1230 UT, finally a non-ID from KFJZ Fort
Worth: ``Radio Libertad 8-70 A-M`` twice, 7:30 TC and into talk about
Biblia, Jeová. Radio-locator.com still hasn`t caught up with this
instead of business news in English.

Searching on slogan quoted leads to this convoluted listing showing
additional slogan ``LA QUE LLEGO PARA QUEDARSE`` which means, whew,
there will never be any more changes!

https://tunein.com/radio/Radio-Libertad-870-AM-s32636/
Location: Dallas-Fort Worth, TX

[but that website goes nowhere]
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1020, Oct 2 at 0557 UT, KOKP Perry OK has a slow SAH of
118/minute = almost 2 Hz, and nulling my semi-local 250-watter as much
as possible, `Red Eye Radio`, which is on KDKA Pittsburgh, doing
better than usual here. Long gone are the nights when KDKA was primary
on 1020 from a kilomile away; slightly closer 1100 WTAM Cleveland does
much better. CBS cannot be accused of being left-wing or even
mainstream as long as it voluntarily airs far-right talkshows like
RER.

CBS owns KDKA? Licensee is Entercom. Well, Wikipedia explains:
``Entercom Communications Corporation is a publicly traded American
broadcasting company and radio network based in Bala Cynwyd,
Pennsylvania. Founded in 1968, it is the second largest radio company
in the United States, owning 235 radio stations across 48 media
markets. In November 2017, Entercom merged with CBS Radio; as a
result, CBS's shareholders held a 72% stake of the company's stock.``

How long has KOKP existed? License-to-cover granted 1/1/1978, but
unlike for some stations, FCC AM Query does not show its initial
airdate. Strangely, NRC AM Log lists address for KOKP and sibling 1580
KOKB Blackwell as in Ponca City, which is next to Blackwell; but I
thought that Triple Play Sports HQ is in Stillwater with their FM
station 105.1; altho they can split as needed for more than one local
silly ballgame at once. FCC also shows a P O Box in PC, with KOKP call
effective 10/26/98. Previous callsign changes:
KVCS 12/15/1995, KASR 03/03/1993, KRAD 09/05/1985
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1520, Oct 2 at 1243 UT, a quarter-hour after LSR here, KOKC
has no SAH and no QRM from Vietnamese, so it seems KYND Cypress TX is
OFF again, especially since Viet from 1560 KGOW Bellaire TX, both
Houston market, is still audible but soon to fade; last time they were
simulaudible and //. 1480, KNGO, The Metroplex, however, is still
audible with Vietnamese sounding same as on 1560 altho not matched.
KYND official October sunrise is 1230 UT, but until 1430 should be on
reduced critical hours power of 18 instead of 25 kW. November: 1245
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search, Oct 2 at 1224-1228
around local sunrise 1227: With K-index of 2, nothing looping NW from
E Asia, Japan/Korea, but from WSW, Australia/New Zealand, u.o.s.:
1548, 882, 702, 612; 1098-west. Steve McGreevy, California, says ``I
REALLY enjoy and am fascinated by your TA/TP MW scans/observations
from mid-continent -- SpM`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13950, Oct 1 at 1933, very distorted 2-way and off, not
even sure if SSB; nothing further in few minutes but to be checked
again (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 14775.6-USB, Oct 2 at 1321, another 2-way in Spanish,
less colloquial than 14982 but still some putas referenced (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 14982-USB, Oct 2 at 1311-1320 tune-out, 2-way in
colloquial Spanish. I think I am rather fluent in comprehending proper
broadcast Spanish, but colloquial conversations, especially among
uneducated speakers, are quite another matter. Usually I have little
patience with them as there are never going to be any sort of IDs, but
this time I struggle to copy some verbiage, including: ``caracol``
snail; ``toneladas`` tons, ``25 a 26 del norte`` referring to
latitude; ``tiburón`` shark; ``puta`` whore sprinkled here and there
as a pause or interjexion rather than the full ``puta madre``.

So anyhow this smax of maritime, fishermen or poachers, smugglers? One
is quite stronger than the other, and such a high frequency suggests a
considerable skip distance apart, like 1000+ miles, OR they are so
close that they reach each other by direct radio waves across the
ocean waves; yet would be less overhearable on VHF (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15758.8-USB, Oct 2 at 1305, VP 2-way in Spanish in an
almost vacant expanded broadcast band (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)
