Logs
** CANADA. 341 kHz, Oct 7 at 0628 UT, dash and YYU NDB ID, 500 watts
from Kapuskasing, Ontario, may be the final time I log it since
http://dxinfocentre.com/ndb.htm
reminds us in red YYU is one of those TO BE DECOMMISSIONED 2019-10-10.
I wonder how much the Kapuskasingers will miss it? No sign of Enid`s
only beacon EI on 341, not that its weak 25 watts were an obstacle.
See also USA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CANADA. 15034-USB, Oct 7 at 1439 and 1601 chex, no signal from CHR.
Propagation is fine, with WINB-DRM on 15115-15125 and CHU on 14670.
Either it broke down completely, or someone at Trenton Military
finally noticed it was totally out of order with ``no report
received`` from everywhere, and distorted modulation. EiBi shows sked
as 1010-2400 on 15034 and 2310-1100 on 6754, which implies two
transmitters but I was hearing exactly the same distortion on 6754;
maybe the nominal overlap allowed for variability in QSY times.
Presumably supposed to be continuous unlike civilian Gander Radio.
Will CHR be repaired and resume receiving reports? For years it has
been remarkably unreliable (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5025, Oct 7 at 0614, no signal from Radio Rebelde which is
normally 24h. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK,
DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13632 & 13767 approx., Oct 7 at 1354, only traces of RHC
spurblobs at first order from 13700; fortunately nothing on second
order to QRM 13565 K6FRC, see USA. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11880, Oct 7 at 1434, CRI Plus English relay is S9+10 but
suptorted modulation. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** GERMANY. 15715, Monday Oct 7 at 1357, music and Chinese talk, like
CRI might do at this hourpart, VP S3-S6, but no, soon recognizable
with gospel harmony, AWR English ID and theme, Voice of Hope, also IDs
in French, German (? fade), Italian, English website, next program in
Mandarin, and into that. First expected to be from KSDA or somewhere
in Asia, yet zero signal from e.g. 15575 South Korea to North America.
No, this is 250 kW, 75 degrees from Nauen at 1300-1330 only, in Cmn on
weekdays, Uighur on weekends! Hmm, would the ChiCom be less likely to
persecute and brainwash Adventist Uyghurs (how many?) than Moslem
ones?? It might pay to pretend to be Christian (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH. 9105, Oct 7 at 1435, JBA carrier here instead of 9100
as I start my 9 MHz bandscan --- I bet it`s Echo of Hope in another
5-kHz shift. Yes, Ron Howard has just reported on this and all the
others to the WOR iogroup:

``On Oct 7, with some changes in the clandestine frequencies.
Voice of the People, at 1044+:
3910 (ex 3905).
3480 (ex 3475).
New 3935 (ex 3930).
4450, no change.
New 6525 (ex 6520).
6600 (ex 6595).

Echo of Hope - VOH, at 1050+:
3985 (ex 3980).
New 4890 (ex 4885).
5995 (ex 5990).
New 6255 (ex 6250). My audio of the news, at http://bit.ly/30PvImZ
6350 (ex 6348)
New 9105 (ex 9100).
(Ron Howard, Asilomar State Beach, CA, Etón E1, antenna: 100' long
wire, WOR iog via DXLD)`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 90.1, Oct 6 at 1846-1852 UT at least, dead air from KUCO
Edmond/OKC, vs occasional breakthrus of modulating KHCC Radio Kansas,
Hutchinson (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 341 kHz, Oct 7 at 1323 UT almost an hour after 1232 sunrise,
OIN is the only beacon audible on 341, no sign at this hour of YYU in
Kapuskasing; see CANADA. OIN is 25 watts from Oberlin KS.

No sign either of Enid`s only beacon EI on 341 from Woodring Airport
(which has a brand-new manager, terminal building and runways being
refurbished as Vance AFB also uses it), not that its weak 25 watts
were an obstacle. There are plenty more 341s as yet unheard from
Alaska, Greenland, Canada, Mexico and all over Lower 48.

I tend to check 341 first on ``LW`` beaconscans. Other regulars nearby
are 350 RG from Will RoGers WA in OKC; 255 SW Stillwater; and 515 PN
Ponca City which is strongest of all, tho listed only minimum power of
25 watts (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 395 kHz, Oct 7 at 1324, ND beacon CA, which is 25 watts from
Newton-Harvs KS. What is Harvs? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 13565, Oct 7 at 1353, K6FRC beacon from CA audible again
today after a long spell; sudden new spurt of activity, or suddenly
favorable propagation? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2002 monitoring: confirmed, Sunday
October 6 at 2130 on WRMI 7780, S7-S9.

Also confirmed UT Monday October 7 at 0130 on WRMI 7780, S7-S9, after
usual Rudy Espinal ID, but then Bob Zanotti tried to ID again, but I
cut him off; sorry, Bob! Much stronger S9+10/20 on // WRMI 9395.

Also confirmed UT Mon Oct 7 at 0230 on WRMI 7780, JBA here, better R4
on UTwente SDR in Holland (and by now 9395 not with WOR has faded out
completely to here; SID?)

Also confirmed UT Mon Oct 7 from 0301:03 on Area 51 via WBCQ 5129.977,
noisy S8-S9; also JBA via UTwente SDR.

Also confirmed UT Mon Oct 7 at 0330 on WRMI webcast, but it`s horribly
distorted! While 9955 is inaudible. Next:

1816 UT Monday IRRS 7290 Romania to WNW

Logs
** CANADA. 15034-USB, Oct 6 at 1350, CHR Trenton Military is still
distorted and ``no report received`` from anywhere, for at least the
third day in a row (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 13565, Oct 6 at 1348, HIFER beacon K6FRC with continuous CW
IDs, 100% copy. First time heard since April 22, despite virtually
daily tunes-across the 13550-13570 band; nor any other such beacons.
Are they all inactive or just not propagating? And has K6FRC been
running all the time, as is the point of being a beacon? K6FRC lux out
as today there are no RHC-FM spurs as one typically blotches around
here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2002 monitoring October 5: Noel R Green
reports: ``0629vUT Saturday HLR 6190-CUSB Germany to WSW --- a better
signal today, peaking to S7 at times with deep fades. I could copy
some of the audio but the rest was lost in local noise. The signal
appeared to deteriorate towards the end of the broadcast when only
voice could be heard but not understood.

1430 UT Saturday, HLR 9485-CUSB Germany to WSW --- there is definitely
an audible signal today peaking to about S6 and easy to tell it's
Glenn`s voice. But only an occasional word can be understood in the
noise level. There's no QRM from either side.
Noel R.Green [NW England].``

Good; another Romanian transmitter outage; long may it continue gone
from 9490! Glad our two English monitors were tuned, since I missed
checking Sat 1430 on 9485 via UTwente or other remotes. Alan Gale:

``Hi Glenn, World of Radio is coming in well on 9485 kHz at the moment
(1440 UT), probably because there is no sign of the Romanian station
on 9490, and no splatter. Post Equinox propagation is probably a
factor as well, as I couldn't find any sign of HLR on the SDRs in
Finland and Sweden, but it's certainly making it to the
north west of England today. A short mp3 file is attached. Alan``

I also missed checking WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO, until 0345 UT Sunday
October 6 when they were in ham news, so I trust WOR had just finished
from nominal 0315 start.

Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria, reports: ``GERMANY, World of Radio#2002 via

** U S A. 820, Sunday Oct 6 at 0606 UT, WBAP starting `Red Eye Radio`,
but horrible mixture of another `Red Eye Radio` far out of synch,
maybe half a minute apart. At first thought flagship WBAP had its
wires crossed with double audio feed, but it keeps going and I soon
find it is really another signal by DF. As recently reported, WWBA
Largo FL on 820 has been running 50 kW at night and QRMing WBAP all
over the continent, but format had been C&W music. Has it flipped
formats, or is hybrid with both depending on time?

This is hardly a new situation. See my log from *2013* ---

``820, Oct 7 at 0607 UT, Redeye Radio from WBAP has a slight reverb
echo on it, especially when nulled, no doubt from other 820 affiliate,
WWBA in Largo FL, 50/1 kW. I wonder if they make an effort to
synchronize, compensating for a satellite delay to FL from originating
TX, minimizing echo which could be a lot worse between them than here
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)``

Guess what, WWBA is still/again listed as an RER affiliate:
http://www.redeyeradioshow.com/red-eye-radio-affiliates/
And there is one other 820, WGGM Chester VA -- now WNTW, U4 10/1 kW
which we may safely disregard.

RER affiliate list does link to WWBA website:
https://www.newstalkflorida.com/

But no program schedule and a direct link I had in an old log is 404.
Current site does have Listen linx to WIXC 1060 and WWBA 820. Checked
at 1516 Oct 6, WWBA is talking a Dave Ramsey commercial, not C&W.

Also, altho recently reported in DX News as if something new, Terry
Krueger mentioned over two years ago in Sept 2017, that WWBA and WHBO
were diplexed close to his then location in Clearwater.

See DXLD 15-02, for my previous log of WWBA vs WBAP, Jan 9, 2015:
http://www.w4uvh.net/dxld1502.txt
And 15-01 as of Jan 6, 2015, under unID:
http://www.w4uvh.net/dxld1501.txt
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1280, Oct 6 at 1342 UT, KSOK Arkansas City KS finishing one
of my favorite tunes, ``Jump``, ID only as ``103-3 The Mixx`` (but
pronounced as if only one X) and a rap version of Jump, not favorite.
No mention of AM frequency! Wow, my radio is somehow picking up an FM
station on AM! Seriously, KSOK is now sounding like full-power 1 kW
and also at full daytime groundwave check 1640 UT. It may have been
fixed for a few days, but this updates my last report that they were
QRP (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. RF 31, KDCU-DT, Derby/Wichita KS, 0437-0500+ UT Oct 6,
surprisingly starts coming in due to level-3 tropo over Wichita into
central MO, altho Enid is just outside the edge of level 1 on the
Hepburn predixion map. Also on the edge is KDCU reception, providing
lots of nice DTV breakup art I have photographed and will eventually
add to my gallery, during Univisión programming. Other signals:

RF 45, KSNW ``3`` is still here, not repacked; also Bad signals on 8,
28 and 35. 8 and 35 fit for Wichita market, but 28?

W9WI.com shows KWKD-LP, 15 kW DTV CP for Daystar in Wichita, virtually
38, but which has been LICensed already on 28 as 8.8 kW analog (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs
DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS
updated as of October 6

http://www.worldofradio.com/dxpgms.html

** CANADA. 15034-USB, Oct 5 at 1343, like yesterday, CHR Trenton
Military continues asserting robotically, ``no report received`` as it
calls the roll of all the airports. When this happen, you can be sure
the problem is at the CHR end, not at every airport. And still
overmodulated/distorted.

6754-USB, Oct 6 at 0016, exactly same situation on night frequency
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 1620, Oct 6 at 0046, music I figure is Radio Rebelde,
immediately confirmed by // 5025 but latter is distorted, so better on
1620 despite some CCI and fading. Something`s always wrong at
RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 9610-9670, Oct 5 at 1420, is the range of buzz field out of
9640 RHC, worse closer in. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11760 // 15140, Oct 5 at 1801, RHC opening choking Arabic on
both frequencies. 11760 is supposed to retire to a siesta at 18-21.
Something`s always wrong at RHC.

Maybe 11760 kept right going since at 2039 recheck it`s on in
Portuguese; and 15370 in Arabic, which is now supposed to be in
Portuguese following Arabic at 2000. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EAST TURKISTAN [and non]. 6180, Oct 6 at 0026, VP talk in English
and music bits like CRI 6020 via ALBANIA. RNA BRAZIL has stayed on
11780 tonight with a VG signal, but on 6180, CRI aimed south for South
Asian mornings would hardly conflict. Remember the Uyghurs being
brainwashed since this is from Kashgar scheduled 2300-0200 in English,
100 kW at 173 degrees (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 5935 // 6040, Sat Oct 5 at 1332, VP talk in
presumed Korean as scheduled from Shiokaze. Ron Howard is concerned
about 5935 clashing with Tibet, but out here we only get a bit of JSR
from Japan. This pair may last the rest of October before another
shuffle in total disregard of other stations (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-USB, Oct 5 at 0014, unID pirate with classic
rock tunes, S7-S8. 0028 finally an announcement yelling ``Countdown``
a few times, and apparently off by 0029. Also unID for everyone else:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,58844.0.html
but one thinx the final voice was Wolfman Jack (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1520, Oct 6 at 0040 UT, dead air from KOKC (not KYND),
allowing cheater KOLM MN (see USA) to be heard more easily until KOKC
suddenly comes to life at 0100 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. Re: ``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``! Are such false IDs a fineable offense?``

Doug Smith, of W9WI.com replies Oct 4 on the WTFDA Forum:

``Certainly a false ID is a potentially fineable offense BUT...

- The FCC doesn't really care what call letters you transmit during
the hour, as long as you transmit the right ones at least once (for a
LPTV station that isn't rebroadcasting something else, the city is
also required - so "KCYH-LD" is not a legal ID even for KCYH-LD).
- For TV stations, the legal ID may be either aural or visual. If the
Enid station is announcing "K17JN-D Enid" aurally at least once an
hour, they're legal even if the only call letters that ever show up on
the screen are KCYH-LD. [doubt there are any audio IDs --- gh]
- There's nothing in the rules about the call letters in the PSIP
metadata. As you may have noticed, most Ion stations just say "Ion",
but they also superimpose their call letters over the video. That is
of course perfectly legal.
- LPTV stations may be identified in Morse Code in a way that's not
audible or visible on an ordinary TV. I am not 100% certain that
method works for digital stations -- but it might.*
- You have to do something pretty egregious to get fined these days.
If you have a license, and your EAS gear and tower lights work, and
you don't lie to the Commission about being on the air, you're
probably not going to get fined.

So it's very possible K17JN is totally legal. And even if it isn't,
they probably don't have anything to worry about.

* I'm certain it would work to identify the station. I am not certain
it wouldn't cause TV sets to "lose lock" for the duration of the ID.
Although the ID would take less than five seconds and maybe operators
would be willing to accept the loss of lock?

And about Nexstar acquiring KFOR:

Doug replies:

``The regulation is generally no more than two stations in a market,
of which one must not be among the four most highly-viewed stations
(generally, you can own a major-network affiliate and an
independent).

That's been slightly relaxed, in that it's now possible in certain
circumstances to own two of the four most highly-viewed stations. The
ABC and NBC stations in Sioux Falls, South Dakota are now
co-owned.

Note that the airing of more than one major network on subchannels of
the same station is unquestionably permissible.

There are no limits for multiple ownership across the country. If you
can afford to buy a TV station in every market, the FCC will let you
do it.

I don't mean to argue that regulation is, or is not, a good idea, but
that's what the regulation is.``

Re: ``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??``

Doug explains:

``RabbitEars uses its own method to designate market areas. Nielsen's
DMA system is copyrighted and other entities (not RabbitEars) have
been asked to cease and desist in using them.

Since the RabbitEars algorithm is different, it yields different
results -- and more areas.

Note that on the Nexstar page, both Hagerstown and Washington show up
as DMA #6. Hagerstown is part of the Washington DMA.

Harrisburg --- may be the central city of the market, but the market
also includes Lebanon, Lancaster, York, and a bunch of smaller cities.
Similarly, Spartanburg also includes Greenville, Anderson, and
Asheville NC.

San Diego "suffers" from being "hemmed in" by the ocean, the desert,
Mexico (DMAs only include viewers in the U.S.), and Camp Pendleton
(imagine what your drill instructor would do if you tried to watch TV
while on duty). San Diego itself may be the 8th largest city in the
U.S., but there aren't as many significant suburbs & satellite cities
as in places like Minneapolis, Denver, and Cleveland.

** U S A. 1860-AM, Oct 6 anout 0315 UT, WA0RCR MO, should start
airing WORLD OF RADIO 2002; check it out in N America (gh)

** U S A. 5800+, Oct 5 at 0018, JBA music, presumed the mystery WRMI
transmitter, not // 5950 or 9395 which are in French with weekly RFPI.
5010 is also still on, closer to on-frequency, so 5800 & 5010 are not
the same transmitter as someone suggested, altho both are registered
at same 181 azimuth (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490+, UT Sun Oct 6 at 0031, WBCQ is playing back last
week`s `AAAWWW` when they were axually there, as he, a ``man of
science`` was poo-pooing ``climate change madness``. So what happened
to the `Mitch & Kathy Show` scheduled this hour? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 820, Oct 6 at 0055 UT, inspired by 1520 KOLM cheating, I
check WBAP and find it still has considerable unusual CCI from some
music, then talk, 0101 WWBA ID mixing with WBAP, so WWBA Largo FL
continues to run 50 kW day power at night, as first IDed here Sept 30.
WHBO 1040 has moved on to diplex with the WWBA site, which may have
something to do with this anomaly (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 1520, Oct 6 at 0040 UT, KOKC OKC is in dead air during
prime(?) time which continues until modulation suddenly blasts on at
0100. Altho we should be in the semi-local coverage area of a 10/10 ND
station even as STA, KOKC almost always has QRM here at night, and now
I hear more easily some baseball talk, even better when aiming NNE
and/or nulling KOKC. Barely squeaking in an ID before KOKC resumes, at
0059 UT ``Powered by CBS Sports Radio, 1520 The Ticket, KOLM,
Rochester``. This is no 800 watts aimed from MN slightly east of
north, as licensed at night rather than 10000 watts day,
non-direxional.

During Critical Hours, 2 hours before sunset, and 2 hours after
sunrise, KOLM may legally run 10 kW, but on a direxional beam with a
broad lobe toward the NW. FWIW, clearly nothing at all, in Oct
official SS/SR times are 2330-1230 UT (Nov: 2245-1300 UT).

KOLM has been cheating for years, and I will not accept excuses that
they have an automation or remote-control problem. Every station is
responsible for adhering to its licensed parameters, even if someone
has to run the transmitter manually; negligence, if that`s what this
is, effectively amounts to cheating which just happens to greatly
improve its local-area night coverage (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
