** U S A. 9330.000, Aug 16 at 2030, S9+10/20 bigsig with C&W music ---
the WBCQ Superstation is back! I was rather expecting this since Allan
Weiner twitted earlier today that his show tonight would be on 9330
plus the other four frequencies. Must be warming up for that. Two or
three tunes without a break, but with considerable selective fading
distortion, and some separate modulation/peak distortion. 2037
mentions ``Classic Country`` and adstring for businesses in Woodstock
(New Brunswick nearby, not NY!), about powerline construxion along
I-95, Fredericton, Houlton, Aroostook Milling Co; 2042 weather in F
and C, ``Kixx FM``, back to music. Kixx FM = WBCQ-FM 94.7, Monticello
ME, 6/6 kW with classic country.

7490.207v, Aug 16 at 2045 I check another BCQ and to my horror
discover my local high line noise is back, but fortunately cutting off
and on, not yet near-continuous, but probably will be again unless we
get some more rain since August 12. While noise is off I can tell 7490
is on and measure it, JBA with talk not //, presumably `Financial
Survival`. Nothing audible on 6160v or 5130v this early before dark.

9330, another country music block ends ends at 2050, more adstring
mentioning Houlton, Highway 2 exit 191, Woodstock. Makes us thankful
that except when test-simulcasting the local FM, WBCQ SW frequencies
are not full of commercials useless to us. Recheck at 2102, now it`s
joined 7490.2 for `Behaviour Night` music, audiblizing this program
for once, altho unfortunately I do not have time to keep listening to
it. 2332 recheck, again with ``Kixx FM`` country music.

9330, at 2359 Aug 16, program switching briefly with what sounds like
``radioserpentine.com`` but must have been the scheduled on 7490
``Radio FKB Sermon Time``! Then 0000 UT Sat Aug 17, cut to ``William
Tell Overture``. Yes, now I can tell it`s // JBA on 7490v, 6160v and
5130v. He soon confirms 9330 is on with the full 500 kW. This week I
won`t have to strain to hear it on 7490. ``Tom is kinda like the CE of
the Super-station``. Kinda?

Anyhow, they`ve got the SS back on air after a month, despite all the
problems with it he was complaining about last week, and more this
week: It runs on Winders 10. Needed to sit down when the first
electric bills arrived, in 5 or 6 figures (meaning: $ 100K, more or
less, a month?). Is replying to usual caller. Confirms 9330 is now on
the same 245 degree azimuth as all the others. During the earlier test
this afternoon, AW was checking various SDRs and found it was getting
in well to Iceland, Europe, South Africa, Vancouver BC, etc.

The rotatable antenna manufacturer, Ampegon, went bankrupt and was
bought by Cesstron (sounds like?). No, it`s Cestron. found it:

http://www.cestron.de/
Communication Engineering Services and Electronics
[now what would that be in German and acronymed?]

News Release, Berlin, 14 August 2019
CESTRON announces acquisition of strategic assets from Ampegon and AM
Broadcast. . .
http://www.cestron.de/News?PHPSESSID=d7f905e03b6f42ec0682119c7364e63b

AW says Cestron has $ 300K worth of spare parts for WBCQ which he hopes
to be able to get. Another problem is that WBCQ has NO documentation
about the antenna. Cestron is rehiring most of the old Ampegon
engineers, and hopes they will come to WBCQ by end of August and get
to work [earlier info was that WBCQ would have to pay for their
airfare and lodging.]

The antenna will cover all bands 5.9 to 28 [sic] MHz, but each
frequency must be pre-programmed into it with proper antenna tuning
unit settings, etc. Need documentation on exactly how to do that
correctly.

It`s all servo-controlled. More AC on the transmitter has been
installed. AW would still prefer plate modulation. Tom replaced power
supply modules. Something about ground-strapping required for
lightning protexion. All this brand-new equipment should have been
under warranty, but that went away with the bankruptcy, which he hears
was not a ``nice`` transition.

Question, what is the reflected power of the 500 kW? No more than 2
kW, and it has to be that low. Is it safe to be near the antenna? Yes,
no problem since you are under the beam which is going out at an
upward tilt of 10-15-20 degrees.

He starts to talk about Woodstock (NY, not NB), at 0021, but of course
interrupted by another caller, gets into political discussion which he
often says he is trying to avoid.

0024, I recheck the other frequencies while the HLNL abates, and find
that they are not synchronized, why not? approx.:
7490+ is 28 seconds ahead of 9330
6160v is 29 seconds ahead of 9330 --- well, maybe in margin of error
5130v is 2 seconds ahead of 9330
3265v is still a JBA carrier, can`t tell

0054, answering another question about music licensing and royalties
like on domestic stations? NO, does not apply to US SW stations which
technically are broadcasting to a foreign audience, like Mexico where
WBCQs are aimed. 0100 canned auto legal ID by self interrupts, but the
live AW is not finished, as just now he starts going thru e-mail.
Larry Will advises of the hum on phone line worst on 9330, and AW says
that is due to processing and superior low-frequency response.

0107 finally to benedixion, and concludes saying that World`s Last
Chance will be on air shortly, 100% programming 9330, while plenty of
time is for sale, cheap on the other ``classic`` frequencies. 0111
canned s/off announcement and 9330 turned off* immediately.

But 6160v and 7490v stay on with music, seemingly //, while 5130v
stays on with something else, talk. By 0130 recheck, 6160v & 7490v are
now BSing, and 5130v something-elseing.

If that was too much for you, here`s John Carver`s summary:

``Tonight's show started on time. This evening I'm listening on 6160
as 7490 had a very poor signal. Moved to 5130 when some hets started
on 6160 and eventually moved to 9330. Allan states that they're on all
five frequencies this evening including full power on the new
transmitter. First phone call at 0007 from Freddie. Next call at 0016
was a prank call. Another phone call at 0022 interrupted a discussion
about Woodstock. Phone call was about Trump.

Back to Woodstock talk after the call. Phone call at 0053 with a
question about whether or not SW stations had to pay royalties on the
music they played. Reading of emails at 0101. Closing prayer at 0107
and program was off the air at 0110. No new information on the
superstation this evening. Just a rehash of old information. John
Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. At first: UNIDENTIFIED. 1180, Aug 16 at 0602 UT, Spanish
looping roughly E/W, i.e. between WHAM baseball talk to the ENE and
Rebelde echojammers to the SE. Seems like norteña music at first, but
between tunes several times, about 0608, 0611, 0614, super-hype
voice-actor intones ``99.9``; sometimes there may have been a slogan
just before that, but I just cannot copy it. Only when aimed E/W on
the DX-398 do I get a LAH, and with BFO comparing to 1170 and 1190,
it`s clear that this station is the one slightly off-frequency plus+.
Rearoused at 0637 UT, this time it sounds more like ``99.3``, so can`t
rule that out. And zzz.

This angle pretty well rules out Mexico, but trouble is, no likely US
stations are SS on 1180 per last year`s NRC AM Log. Maybe this year`s,
when it comes, will have the answer. It`s yet another that considers
AM only an expendable appendage of FM, tail wagging dog. IRCA Mexican
Log does not have any 1180 matches to either FM frequency.

Reverse search, looking up in the WTFDA FM Database all the 99.9s in
the USA in Spanish, shows none of them correlated with an ``origin``
on an 1180 station. But along the DF axis, in case there has been a
format flip, we do find a station in Arkansas, KTUV 1440 Little Rock
with 99.9 translators in both Rogers and Little Rock. Yet shown with
non-matching formats and slogans: K260DT Little Rock, regional
Mexican; and K260CS Rogers, Spanish hits, Las Americas Radio 1440. But
the only AR station on 1180 is unrelated, non-SS and over by Memphis
TN, WGUE, CLassic Rock format.

Before checking same for 99.3, I try radio-locator.com, on WGUE, and
by golly, there it is:

``WGUE-AM 1180 kHz

WGUE-AM also broadcasts its primary channel from these 2 transmitters
W257CY 99.3 FM Memphis, TN (99 watts)
K268DA 101.5 FM Memphis, TN (250 watts)``

The nighttime coverage map for 1180 shows it almost circular, the 26
watts barely reaching adjacent counties from a + site barely on the AR
side of the River near West Memphis (despite the W-call):
https://radio-locator.com/cgi-bin/pat?call=WGUE&service=AM&h=N
Hey, how does that fare against the 500+kW from Cuba (adding up powers
in WRTH, plus more unknown). Well, at least they make it to Enid!

Then to WTFDA search for all the SS on 99.3 --- no, not there nor
anything else likely. But since we have the call W257CY, going
directly to that, voilà:

``W257CY WGUE-1180 99.3 MEMPHIS TN USA 0.099 0.099 290.0 0.0 35-09-16
89-49-20 REGIONAL MEXICAN LA JEFA 99.3``

It did not show up in the Spanish search since there is no entry in
the field for language. I`m sure this must be it; everything fits
except hearing it if really on legal night power. Note the FM power
is, what else, also ``99` watts.

So as much as we decry AM stations abandoning their identity to a
paltry FM translator, even to the extent of `branding`` only on the FM
frequency --- in this case it leads to an ID, while SHVA shouts of
``11-80`` would not have, since we already know it`s obviously on
1180.

If all this sound vaguely familiar, it`s related to WUMY 830 sale
etc., as explained in DXLD 18-44

Logs
But mainly Aug 15 with bits before and after

Last time I had lots of logs, but they were not ``lots`` as typoed in
the subject line

** ANGUILLA. 6090, Aug 16 at 0159, CB is on with gospel music break;
fits into the PMS schedule ``Friday Midnight to 4 am Nighttime 6.090
MHz`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, Aug 16 at 0200, RHC English is S9+10/20 but JBM /
suptorted; // 6165 is undermod but sufficient if you really want to
listen to it. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 7254.9, Aug 15 at 0620, no signal from VON in Hausa; it
was there 24 hours earlier, routinely non-logged (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. Re my previous report about an electronic billboard
advertising that Rush and Sean were coming to FM in Enid, i.e. CP for
a new KGWA 960 translator on 100.9:

At a stoplight a few days later I watch the billboard longer: loads
of local bizzes flashing but not KGWA by the golight; however, the
billboard itself is owned by its parent, Williams Broadcasting,
following the Clear Channel model! Hmmm, could they add a Part 15
transmitter to the sign? Ooooh (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 12030, Thu Aug 15 at 2155, REE is AWOL from ME frequency
before closing time; Spanish still on 11940 for S America and //
stronger 9690 for N America (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9830, Aug 15 at 2200, VOT is on today starting correct
language English with timesignal about 3 seconds slow, but VP signal
vs RTTY which hasn`t stopped quite yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1994 monitoring: confirmed
Wednesday August 14 at 2100 on WRMI 9955, S9-S6 after IS & ID loop. By
my watch & WWV, started about half a second late, but still upcut
picking me up at ``---with World of Radio 19-94---``. Cannot hear
simulcast on WBCQ 7490 at first, but soon confirmed L&C on webcast;
and finally at 2126, enough signal S3-S5 on 7490+ direct to tell it`s
about 1 second behind 9955, or 4-5 words. Of course, no WBCQ sigs to
be detected circa 9330, 6160 or 5130; some weeks ago this emission was
duplicated on 5130+ but probably anomalous.

Also confirmed UT Thursday August 15 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, poor in
storm noise but still no line noise.

WORLD OF RADIO 1995 contents: Albania [non], Antarctica, Australia,
Bangladesh, Bhutan, Brasil, Bulgaria, Cuba, France, Germany, Hungary,
Iran non, Kashmir non, Korea South, Kuwait, Niger, Nigeria, Sikkim,
Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, USA, Vatican, Zambia; and the propagation
outlook

** U S A. 7490.180, Aug 16 at 0154 tune-in to S9+10/20 of dead air,
then Brother Scare cuts on WBCQ. Apparently he starts at 0100 on the
five nights a week when nothing else is scheduled, still nothing at:
http://wbcq.com/schedule/index.php?fn=sked&freq=7490
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15550-USB, Aug 14 at 1425, JBA gospel music, 1427 gospel
huxter, piano hymn, alternating talk and hymns past 1435, as WJHR has
jumped again from 15555-USB. IIRC 15550 was its original frequency
when first on the air; has occasionally resumed it for no discernible
reason --- in fact, counterproductive as 15555 has been clear of other
broadcasters during WJHR`s 14-22 span, while 15550 is not. Notably
Radio Dabanga via Vatican at 1529-1557. At 1808 still a trace of it on
15550-USB.

As recently as August 9 I had WJHR on 15555-USB when it was on the air
early at 1357. Also checked August 15 at 1408, JBA on 15550-USB. At
1529 I do hear Dabanga/Vatican JBA carrier but not WJHR here nor on
15555. Aoki/NDXC already shows WJHR on 15550 only, while EiBi and HFCC
show 15555 only (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1995, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 5830, Aug 15 at 0627, WTWW-1 is off, and not heard on 9475
either; lower propagation is OK from neighbor 5935 WWCR. Circa 1630
check, 9475 is off, and not heard on 5830 either (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Area tropo August 14 at 1430-1500+ UT in the 200 km range
finds best signal on RF 45 which turns out to be KSNW `3` Wichita,
altho Hepburn map implies Tulsa would be more likely, if KOTV still be
on 45 (my screen first defaults to remembered 6-1, then corrects to
3-1). Other Bad signals correlate with Wichita market: 31, 26, 10,
8.

Also an intriguing one on RF 32: in OK and KS a bunch of translators
or LDs, including an imaginary in Enid; only one full power 135 kW,
KRSU Claremore, ex-35. Meanwhile I snap some photos of KSNW:
Now we know why the Today Third Hour is delayed until the fourth hour,
i.e. after 1500 UT: they insert syndicated Live with Kelly and Ryan.
Is it really, or just has to air everywhere at 9 am local?

Also some breakups for pixyllated DTV art:

You may also see edges of a window and another screen in background;
tilt. You should have seen the art that got away! (Glenn Hauser, Enid
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** VATICAN. 17530, Aug 15 at 1334, JBA carrier and then JBA talk is
the OSOB and SSOB, but what? HFCC shows only VOA Somali via SMG;
nothing audible at 1407 during the break until Botswana start English
at 1500, but during which VOA Grimesland might do a weekday carrier
test (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
