Logs
** CUBA. 6100, Feb 1 at 0658, no signal from RHC English, while 6000,
6060 and 6165 are still on --- but by 0659 all of them have cut
modulation, open carriers only. Unknown if 6100 merely closed a minute
earlier or not at all since 0500. Fifth of The Cuban Five, 5040 at
0701 goes from dead air to opening Spanish! As I recheck the three 6
MHz channels, still dead air. Presumably 5040 will also cut off
shortly. Meanwhile, 5025 Rebelde is distorted. Something`s always
wrong at RHC and RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 9710, Feb 1 at 0251, pop/romantic music, language
uncertain, S9-S5 and fluttery, no announcements until abruptly off at
0300* amid music. Only scheduled per HFCC is CRI Spanish via Kashgar,
0100-0300, 500 kW at 294 degrees. But defaulted into fill music?
Signal stands out since hardly anything else is propagating on band
from overseas (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** HAWAII [and non]. 5000, Feb 1 at 0703, WWVH poorly audible under
WWV with hear-us-by-telephone announcement; at 0704 WWV runs its 1-kHz
tone. Not heard by me, but WOR iog contributors report:

``As monitored here in NB on 15 MHz today (31 January), WWV ended the
National Weather Service Atlantic and Pacific marine high-seas and
storm warnings after 1900 UTC. Before that time, announcements about
the ending of the warnings were transmitted during minutes 4 and 7
after the hour with the Atlantic information in minutes 8 and 9 and
the Pacific information in minute 10. So, the last storm warnings were
during the 1800 UTC hour. After 1900, the announcements in minutes 4
and 7 were discontinued and the storm warnings in minutes 8, 9, and 10
were replaced with an announcement about the ending of the warnings.
Presumably, there was a similar transition on WWVH -- Richard
Langley``

And from Bob Biermann of Your Weekend Show: ``Like it or not, as time
moves forward, (Western) government agencies will pull further away
from any type of HF communications service, with the exception of HF
for military backup. Personally, in the grand scheme of things, it may
prove to be a bit short sighted. I understand the benefits of today's
IP and satellite based systems, but I also see the robustness of an HF
backup`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA [non]. 7255-, Feb 1 at 0653, VON is off again and not heard
on 9690- either --- but that could be on and not propagating.
Reception on 31m is strange right now, with 9395 WRMI a JBA carrier,
while 9330.165 WBCQ TOMBS is S9-S8 and managing to modulate without
breakup. Usually at this time of night, it`s the reverse with WRMI`s
southern advantage (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1157 & 1183 peaks, Feb 1 at 0347 UT, IBOC noise from 1170
KFAQ Tulsa is certainly on now, tho not heard earlier in the daytime.
Forget about clearhearing KSL 1160 unless USB-tuned and KFAQ be nulled
as much as possible.

I seldom listen deliberately to KFAQ but per NRC AM Log it has no FM!
How can a mere 50/50 kW MW station get by without at least a 250-watt
translator now? like rival talker KRMG is now a bigger FM station with
an AM 740 legacy appendage (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1650, Feb 1 at 0311 UT, making a concerted effort to hear
KFSW Sallisaw: now there is some gospel music and ID mentioning ``98-
7``, which fits for ``Life 98.7``, K254AM, which I suspect is really
across the frontier in Fort Smith AR. 1650 sig is poor, not comparable
to other X-banders, and heavy SAH of 152/minute = 2.53 Hz, probably
with KCNZ IA, but plenty of CCI also from CO & TX. This is on the E-W
longwire which favors KFSW, and no problem at night from local
adjacent 1640. Since I don`t hear KFSW at all in daytime or twilight,
strongly suspect they are running only 1 kW day and night rather than
10 kW day --- and this AM station still exists only to feed the much
more important mere FM translator in the city of license (Glenn
Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5950 // much stronger 9395, Feb 1 at 0303, Radio Prague in
English via WRMI. Current skedgrid shows these two matching at 01-04,
including 0200 Argentina, 0230 Tirana, 0300 Prague, 0330 Slovakia, all
in English, but not all daily (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 880-USB + carrier, Feb 1 at 0333 UT I am trying to hear KHAC
Tse Bonito NM; having realized I have not been running across it
lately as it was easy during a long span of 10 kW ND day power at
night rather than 430 watts ND.

On the R75 with E-W longwire, 880 is still dominated by DSB KRVN from
the north, altho it has an ad mentioning MST --- but about a third of
Nebraska is on MST, one boundary on I-80 being about halfway between
North Platte and Ogallala, certainly in KRVN`s coverage area from
Lexington further east.

I try again at 0635 UT Feb 1, this time on the DX-398 which is what it
takes to null KRVN as much possible and hear another station on USB
but no LSB, which must be KHAC, praise music in English, not Navajo.
It`s VP with a 7 Hz SAH. KLRG AR I think has been reactivated and
could also be in mix with religion, but it`s DSB.

At 0650 amid praise music, ID sounds like ``right here on KJCC and
KWIN 104.9``. But I know they must really be saying KHAC and KWIM!
Because there is a KWIM 104.9 in adjacent Window Rock AZ --- not KWIN,
but meaning Western Indian Ministries, i.e. attempting to deprive
Dineh of original religion and turn them into Protestants, a kind of
cultural genocide; as per WTFDA FM Database:

KWIM 104.9 WINDOW ROCK AZ USA 30.0 kW ERP H&V, 91.0 m HAAT H&V, at 35
-39-19 N, 109-01-59 W, CONTEMPORARY CHRISTIAN, MUSIC WITH A MESSAGE.

But the DB makes no connexion with KHAC 880, despite a blank field for
// source of programming! Likewise, the NRC AM Log entry for 880 KHAC
makes no mention of any FM (nor the very significant fact that 880
suppresses LSB).

Is the FM really in AZ or NM? Strange as it may seem, the AZ/NM
straight N-S borderline is not exactly at the 109-00-00 W meridian,
but a mile or two west of there per Rand McNally atlas. Was this the
result of a surveying error back in the day when the territory was
being divided in twain? Likewise Utah/Colorado above the Four Corners.

To hear KHAC while legally on 10 kW ND daypower, note that February
official SR/SS times are 1400/0100 UT; best chances for getting out
just after 1400 or before 0100 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

CUBA. 13671.718 & 13728.283, Jan 31 at 1457, JBA spurs from RHC
13700 detectable today at 28.282 or 28.283 kHz offsets, perfectly
matched within margin of error. How about further out? One more found
at 13756.567, while 2 x 28.2825 would be +56.565, close enough!

So this transmitter has the same kind of defect as 15140, but a
different offset vs 28.6 kHz. Next one up should be about 13785, but
too much splash from fundamental 13780 not off yet. It is off at 1534,
when I find a JBA carrier on 13784.859, which is 28.292 above the
previous one. Of course I did not bother to check whether fundamental
was on exactly 13700.000. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

Wondering whether the 15140 and 13700 transmitters have been swapped,
then at 1534 I see if any spurs remain from 15140? It`s rather weaker
today by propagation, but one about 14882.56.

The last time I found one in this area, Jan 25 at 1324: ``14882.472,
that is minus 257.528 kHz, but that means separations would be 25.7528
kHz, less than about 28.6 otherwise indicated; so maybe 14882+ is
really unrelated to these``. However, I was dividing by 10; if I had
divided by 9, I would have found it did match: 28.614 kHz! Something`s
always wrong at RHC.
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

CUBA. 15230, Jan 31 at 1542, RHC Spanish is S9+10 but suptorted;
wiggle that patchcord! // 15140 is distorted but not suppressed.
Something`s always wrong at RHC.
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING IGEST)

TURKEY. 12035.0+, Jan 31 at 1423, VOT sign-off English by YL
announcer for a change; only a few Hz off frequency today, not 700,
poor S5-S7. I keep listening to ascertain when it cut off. IS plays
for a while, by 1426 interspersed with IDs in Turkic if not Turkish
language.

Keeps going past 1430 with timesignal about a sesquisecond late, and
opening presumed Kazakh, which is the only VOT SW language scheduled
to start at 1430, and supposed to be on 9785. Wish I could remember
that, to swiftly check whether 9785, 9785, 9785, be absent and cut on
late, the next time this surely happen; for 12035+ is not chopped off
by the sloppyrator until 1430:39*.

Meanwhile TRT Turkish is also almost-on-frequency today, a few Hz
above 11815.0 rather than +700, neither measured; tomorrow is another
day.
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

SAUDI ARABIA. 11820.042, Jan 31 at 2119, SRI/SBA is propagating
again, after a long winter break, so spring must be nigh! Lovely
Qur`an chanting with just the right amount of reverb, even if
artificially applied rather than from the mosque`s echoey halls;
perfect lullaby for my afternoon nap, S9+10 with fades to S9; always
slightly plus frequency, and // always weaker 11914.988, slightly
minus, S9-S6. But at 2138 stops cantoring and starts merely talking,
presumably sermon until 2150 tune/out. Recheck at 2201, back to
Qur`aning, but both greatly faded to S8-S6 and JBA carrier
respectively.

Logs
** CUBA. 13671.718 & 13728.283, Jan 31 at 1457, JBA spurs from RHC
13700 detectable today at 28.282 or 28.283 kHz offsets, perfectly
matched within margin of error. How about further out? One more found
at 13756.567, while 2 x 28.2825 would be +56.565, close enough!

So this transmitter has the same kind of defect as 15140, but a
different offset vs 28.6 kHz. Next one up should be about 13785, but
too much splash from fundamental 13780 not off yet. It is off at 1534,
when I find a JBA carrier on 13784.859, which is 28.292 above the
previous one. Of course I did not bother to check whether fundamental
was on exactly 13700.000. Something`s always wrong at RHC.

Wondering whether the 15140 and 13700 transmitters have been swapped,
then at 1534 I see if any spurs remain from 15140? It`s rather weaker
today by propagation, but one about 14882.56.

The last time I found one in this area, Jan 25 at 1324: ``14882.472,
that is minus 257.528 kHz, but that means separations would be 25.7528
kHz, less than about 28.6 otherwise indicated; so maybe 14882+ is
really unrelated to these``. However, I was dividing by 10; if I had
divided by 9, I would have found it did match: 28.614 kHz! Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15230, Jan 31 at 1542, RHC Spanish is S9+10 but suptorted;
wiggle that patchcord! // 15140 is distorted but not suppressed.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** GREECE. 9420, Jan 31 at 2150, great Greek music from VOG is good at
S9/+10 as I tune over from SBC on 11820+ after it stops Qur`aning. No
ToH timesignal, but ID before 2201 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1170, Jan 31 at 2010 UT on caradio, KFAQ Tulsa IBOC noise
seems off; can`t hear any on 1160 or 1180, but nothing else to be
heard either. At night it really messes up KSL (which I suppose is
also still IBOC too, serving them right). Certainly no conclusions yet
about KFAQ IBOC (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1450, Jan 31 at 1959 UT on caradio, one station in CCI
also vs spur het from 1390 KCRC, partial ID as 100.9 FM, into network
news. NRC AM Log shows of the three Okies on 1450, the one with 100.9,
K265FE, is KGFF Shawnee (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 12035.0+, Jan 31 at 1423, VOT sign-off English by YL
announcer for a change; only a few Hz off frequency today, not 700,
poor S5-S7. I keep listening to ascertain when it cut off. IS plays
for a while, by 1426 interspersed with IDs in Turkic if not Turkish
language.

Keeps going past 1430 with timesignal about a sesquisecond late, and
opening presumed Kazakh, which is the only VOT SW language scheduled
to start at 1430, and supposed to be on 9785. Wish I could remember
that, to swiftly check whether 9785, 9785, 9785, be absent and cut on
late, the next time this surely happen; for 12035+ is not chopped off
by the sloppyrator until 1430:39*.

Meanwhile TRT Turkish is also almost-on-frequency today, a few Hz
above 11815.0 rather than +700, neither measured; tomorrow is another
day (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. I`m overdue for a complete bandscan of the local FM
scene, so undertake it on caradio from a parking lot on the west edge
of Enid, Jan 31 from 2013 UT, noting some significant items:

88.3, K202BY, Enid, FÃmily Radio translator is still on with dead air
after many months, altho I have not kept mentioning it. They later got
an STA to be off the air, not realizing the difference! Nothing in
WTFDA FM Database about it being off, or programming silence, or STA.

92.1, KAMG-LP Enid remains off the air for many months. It`s still in
the WTFDA FM Database with no notation that it`s silent. I am hearing
something else weakly, one of the three others Okies on frequency.

93.1, K226BR Enid remains off the air for *years*; it was last
translating 93.9 KIMY until it broke. Still in WTFDADB as if it exist.

95.1, strong dead air at 2012, still at 2028 UT, trace of Wichita or
Shawnee underneath. Apparently somecar`s unfed feeder elsewhere in the
Walmart parking lot, as it quickly fades when I drive away. Far too
far from the Pheasant Run Xmas sound & lite show, a mile or two, to be
that 95.1 Part 15 transmitter not turned off.

100.9, no sign yet of K265FL, translator of talker KGWA 960 Enid, tho
in WTFDA DB as if on the air. Anyhow, that supplants the CP for a
community LPFM.

101.5, new local-quality signal! Strong enough to ACI KS on 101.7.
2017 UT Jan 31 tune-in to tropical music; dumps off the air for a few
seconds and back on several times. Song is `Alza tus Ojos`, lyrix
about ``mi querida Venezuela``, mentioning most other Latin American
countries, apparently promoting political support for the opposition.
Alzar means raise or lift up. Automated timecheck at 2020 for ``Las 14
horas, 20 minutos``, so in UT-6 zone.

Promo for program `Tiempo de Alabanza` elsewhen. I am wondering if
this be a local pirate? Especially when I hear it ID as ``Radio
SalvaciÃn, 93.9 FM``; then promo FB something like radiosalvacionokc;

But at 2032 UT it`s ``SalvaciÃn Radio NÃtwork, ciento uno punto cinco,
transmitiendo vÃa tus sentidos``, a rather strange claim. I hear the
same canned ID a few more times before 2100 UT. 2042 UT song again
``Alza tus Ojos``, but this time it`s a praise hymn with non-
Venezuelan lyrix.

Finally at 2100 UT at home I hear a too-fast legal ID for something
with a W on 93.9 and KOCD 101.5 Okeene OK; into Torah lesson --- I
guess they are Messianic, certainly not Jewish Orthodox.

WTFDA DB info draws no connexion between these (93.9 not heard here):

KOCD 101.5 Okeene OK runs 14 kW horizontal only from 88 meters HAAT,
at 36-07-11 N, 98-15-45 W Spanish ``LIBERTAD EN CRISTO MINISTRIES``

KWDW-LP 93.9 OKLAHOMA CITY, 100 watts H only, 28 meters, 35-21-40 N,
97-34-55 W ``SPANISH RELIGIOUS``

Okeene is about 30 miles SW of Enid, best known for its annual
Rattlesnake Roundup. Search for it on FB finds

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Radio-Salvacion-Okc/402409696478831
Home church is an Assembly of God at SW 42 & Agnew, but most of the FB
stuff is from 2012-2015. So the original LP pipsqueak gets a relay by
a moderate-power non-LP. Yet the LP reaches a far larger market.

104.9, Jan 31 at 2022, lofi RCatholic advice talkshow, phone 833-388-
EWTN. So the new station in Ringwood OK, a few miles west of Enid,
with one grocery store and a cemetery, is now on air. WTFDA DB shows:

KEUC 104.9 RINGWOOD, 100 watts H&V, 21 meters H&V [sic] at 36-23-12 N,
98-14-47 W, ``RELIGIOUS TEACHING EWTN OKLAHOMA CATHOLIC BROADCASTING``
Further into central Enid I am already losing the signal (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SAUDI ARABIA. 11820.042, Jan 31 at 2119, SRI/SBA is propagating
again, after a long winter break, so spring must be nigh! Lovely
Qur`an chanting with just the right amount of reverb, even if
artificially applied rather than from the mosque`s echoey halls;
perfect lullaby for my afternoon nap, S9+10 with fades to S9; always
slightly plus frequency, and // always weaker 11914.988, slightly
minus, S9-S6. But at 2138 stops cantoring and starts merely talking,
presumably sermon until 2150 tune/out. Recheck at 2201, back to
Qur`aning, but both greatly faded to S8-S6 and JBA carrier
respectively (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330.1, Jan 31 at 2115, WBCQ is DA except for fragments of
BS cutting in and out, tsk2 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5950 // much stronger 9395, Jan 31 at 2116, these WRMIs are
Oldies this hour; not // 7780 other music, and German? announcement,
RAE relay (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5830, Jan 31 at 1546, WTWW-1 night frequency still running
with PPPP, not 9475; 5085, Jan 31 at 1546, WTWW-2 is S9+30 over 1-
megameter total daypath with rock. 5085 rock still/again heard at
2133, S9+20, and by now 9475 is on.

I remarked about how white-identity PPPP might not approve of amoral
multi-ethnic rock music on his #2 legacy transmitter, but is it
really? Someone much more familiar with the genre and listening to
5085 a lot more than I ever will, would have to evaluate whether
anything from non-white artists is allowed on air by Ted? (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1470, Jan 31 at 1359 UT, Spanish fades in slightly above the
CCI, can`t catch ID if any, but YL DJ is giving 800 number(s); 1402
song ``El DÃa del Marmota``, which means groundhog as well as marmot
altho my Langenscheidt dixionary does not know that; getting a jump on
him. L dix also says the word is feminine, but what about male
marmots? I think the song sang del rather than de la. Again presumed
KWSL Sioux City IA, for which NNE DF fits, and there are no SS Texans
in the opposite SSW direxion. BTW, when I was monitoring the webstream
the other day, the legal IDer pronounced KWSL in English, then
attempted to pronounce the X in Sioux not realizing that it is plenty
silent (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1520, Jan 31 at 2012 UT again I have that JBA ~1 kHz het
vs KOKC on caradio in western Enid; 1521 Saudi or something. Much
closer hi-end skywave certainly in play (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)
