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

U S A. 5800+, Oct 5 at 0018, JBA music, presumed the mystery WRMI

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?

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:

Quote Originally Posted by Glen[n] Hauser:

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

** 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.

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
DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9800.68-USB, Oct 6 at 0038, VP 2-way in Spanish,
whistling; vs JBA AM carrier on 9800.0 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13857-USB, Oct 5 at 1342, 2-way in Spanish (Glenn
