** FRANCE. 13735V, Oct 7 at 1526, marine weather by French YL,
somewhat distorted S8-S9, Maryland SDR in SAM mode shows carrier
varying up and down +48 to 72 Hz: typical of defective Issoudun
transmitter. This is for the Mini-TransAt yacht race, the first leg of
which from France to Canary Island, is just about over. After a long
rest, the second leg from Canary to Guadeloupe, really TA, launches
Oct 29 and should start ending November 9, per map here:

** U S A.. 9950 & 9960, Oct 7 at 0610, plus & minus parasitic spurs
out of 9955 WRMI are JBA carriers again, tho fundamental is only S9/S6
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Stephen Luce, Houston TX, replies to my 1310 KZIP log:

``Glenn, about KZIP: Yes the transmitter tower is right next to I-40
just east of Hope Road, and easy to see when driving by. Built in
1978, the tower is also used by what is now KPRF 98.7 which originally
signed on that year. Both the AM and FM were co-owned in the late 70's
when 1310 was a Country Music station, and 98.7 was Album Rock KYTX (I
lived in Amarillo at the time and recall hearing the original
transmitter tests for 98.7 during the early morning hours while
driving to work.) KZIP was sold around 1981 flipping to a Spanish
language format, while 98.7 has had several owners, call signs, and
formats over the years.

Only things even vaguely resembling a valley in the Amarillo area
would be either Palo Duro Canyon or Lake Meredith, unlikely origins of
the ownership name. The Texas Panhandle is not completely flat, if you
take the time to explore it. Stephen Luce, Houston, Texas`` Yes, Palo
Duro is quite scenic, a minature Grand (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS update Oct 5:

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

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Oct 6 at 1451 tune-in via Brasilian
remotes: NO signal at Campo, so not on? No, something must be wrong
with that remote, since I do hear it at S3-S4 via Brasília #2. Usual
stuff, songs, 1453 ``Nacional La Radio Pública`` non-ID, more at 1507,
1515, music; 1521 Antártida song; 1523 Pardinho SDR opens up and gets
it better at S5-S6; 1524 music, 1540 multilingual ``sign-on``
including English telling us that it`s in Spanish; talk about
Antarctic treaty on environmental protexion signed 4 October 1991 in
Madrid, but which went into effect in 1998. 1547 bit of hielo song,
NLRP, talk, 1620 NLRP; chopped off in progress at 1641.5* (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 1460, Oct 6 at 2112 UT, ``La Tremenda, lo primero en
noticias``, ID partly in English for KZUE 1460 & 97.7; ``minuto 60``
news in Spanish mainly about Tejas, 2116 music. That`s 500-watt
daytimer from El Reno. Heard no mention of ``Radio Fórmula`` also as
in NRC AM log but still may be plugging into that Mexican network at
times (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2106 monitoring: ``From: Richard Lemke, St.

UNIDENTIFIED. 13815, Oct 6 at 2323, no signal, unlike 24 hours ago,
good in Arabic. Must have been a frequency mistake or a test, but
whence? Latest Aoki dated Oct 6 still has it not; and EiBi has not
been updated for a month! since Sept 5 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA. Oct 5 at 0621+ UT, finally few storms in CONUS so noise
level low enough to reuncover some ND beacons not heard for months:

335-MCW kHz, Oct 5 at 0623 UT, dash and YLD, 1000 watts from Chapleau,
Ontario.

284-MCW kHz, Oct 5 at 0627 UT, dash and QD, 500 watts from The Pas
MB.

269-MCW kHz, Oct 5 at 0628 UT, dash and UDE, 50 watts from Delta MB.

250-MCW kHz, Oct 5 at 0635 UT, dash and FO, 1600 watts from Flin FlOn
MB.

223-MCW kHz, Oct 5 at 0639 UT, dash and YYW. This is missing from
dxinfocentre.com, not on any frequency, probably ``decommissioned``. I
have heard it before, many times last winter, finally on Feb 5: it`s
1000 watts from Armstrong in remote NW Ontario. But classaxe.com RNA
Signals List shows it still logged as recently at 2021-10-02, but
never in OK, and power of only 100 watts.

212-MCW kHz, Oct 5 at 0640, dash and YGX, 50 watts from Gillam MB.
Last logged Dec 14 with some info about Gillam. More this session at
USA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11850, Oct 5 at 0135, RHC Spanish modulation is
suppressed/distorted = suptorted to the level of JBM = just barely
modulated, S9+20/30 going to waste. SAWA = Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11760, Oct 5 at 2315, RHC Spanish is S9+10/20 with humbuzz
like often infesting 6060 later, probably same transmitter.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13650, Oct 5 at 2320, CRI music only instead of Portuguese
relay is S9+10 but overmodulated & distorted. Something`s always wrong
at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Oct 5 at 0621+ UT, finally few storms in CONUS so noise
level low enough to reuncover some ND beacons not heard for months:

356-MCW kHz, Oct 5 at 0621 UT, ODX, 25 watts from Ord, Nebraska

341-MCW kHz, Oct 5 at 0623 UT, OIN, 25 watts from Oberlin KS: yes,
Enid local EI is still silent.

257-MCW kHz, Oct 5 at 0630 UT, JYR, 25 watts from York, NE

257-MCW kHz, Oct 5 at 0632 UT, FWC, 25 watts from Fairfield/Wayne
County, Illinois. I was tuned to 255-USB, where SW Stillwater OK is
still silent.

251-MCW kHz, Oct 5 at 0634 UT, AM, 100 watts from Amarillo TX. More
from same session: CANADA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330, Oct 5 at 1456 & 2313 chex, still no signal from
WLCR/WBCQ. Has Allan explained anything about this by disgraced twit?
Of course not; almost all of them are pro-motional, lastly for AAAWWW
on Oct 1. How about the WLC website? Of course not! The latest
``news`` there is dated 2019 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1310 kHz, Oct 6 at 0052 UT, Spanish YL praying openly and
fervently, as if God couldn`t read her mind, loops W/E; by ToH faded
into jumble, something else IDing in English. There are several SS
mostly E and W coast, but the nearby obvious SS:REL hit is KZIP
Amarillo TX, 1000/88 watts non-direxional, Radio Vida, per new NRC AM
Log [which I highly recommend; see
https://nationalradioclub.org/catalog/books/books.html
for ordering info]. Official FCC sunset for KZIP in October was 0015
UT, so I had it with 88 watts? November: 2345 UT. As so often,
radio-locator.com info is outdated as ``Radio Caliente``. FCC shows
licensee is Christian Ministries of the Valley, Inc. What valley? Not
AMA. Coverage map at r-l shows site is slightly due west of Amarillo;
probably visible along I-40 near Cadillac Ranch (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Oct 5 at 0150-0157
UT: 531, 558(2), 576, 585(2), 612, 621, 639, 657, 684(2), *693, 738,
765, 774(2), 837(2), 882(2), 909, 963, 981, 999, 1053, *1089, 1098(2),

kHz. *strongest probably UK; (2) at least two carriers beating at
widely varying rates; (3) more than two (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13815, Oct 5 at 2321, surprised to find a VG S9 signal
direct to here with ME music, Arabic W&M chat, brief Qur`an, chanting
for several minutes could be secular; 2333 ``Idha`at ---`` which would
be an ID but could not copy it. Starting to fade down. Recheck Oct 6
at 0022, no signal to remotes in Europe, E N America, N S America.
Only 13815 entry in EiBi, Aoki and HFCC is 1800-1900, Algeria via
France in Arabic and French. Of course that is normally completely off
the air before 2300. What is it?? Sounds like a major station (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13740, Oct 4 at 1434, RHC Spanish overmodulated & distorted,
splashing about 12 kHz above and below. // 13700 is better and still
spurless. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. Some mild tropo over OK & KS October 4 morning
1516-1530+ UT, besides several more BAD signals on RF 11, 10, 8:

RF 14, KOCY DTV, virtual PSIP as 48-3. Why not 48-1? My first
confirmation of this, while KOCY OKC with Estrella TV continues as
part of the RF 29 KTUZ cluster along with two other supposedly
competing Spanish networx, each with totally different virtual
channels. W9WI.com lists only two different CPs for this -LP on 14, 15
kW and 7.5 kW.

RF 20, no IDs on the PSIP, but Broken Arrow ad = Tulsa suburb.
Otherwise displays as KQCW-HD 19-1.

RF 36 shows as DTV 17-5 but no call! Got to be KDOR-TV Bartlesville,
the TBN station, but in W9WI.com lists with only 4 virtual 17s and
their fifth sub supposedly being 18.5 with Positiv. Did not find what
program source is really on this. One megawatt.

RF 34, 41-1 KMYT-TV. 812.5 kW from Tulsa with of course MyTV on main.

RF 28, 44-1 ION. KTPX-TV, 1 megawatt, CoL Okmulgee = Tulsa market. Six
channels, four of which are shoppers, 44-3 = IONPlus; two of the
others are not 44+ virtually.

RF 22, 22-1 KTOU-LD, 15 kW from OKC. Has an APP for only 9.8 kW,
unknown location. Invisible here without tropo.

RF 12, 12-3 but then leads to 33-3 Antenna. Confusing situation. The
RF 12 in OK is KGEB ``53`` but not listed with Antenna network. Must
really be KSCW-DT, Wichita KS, which is only 15 kW, but in W9WI.com by
channel its virtual channels are ``36.`` not 33! A mistake, or
out-of-date info? The other subs match up: 33-4 Start TV, 33-2
Decades, 33-1 KSCW-DT in local news, and weather with 12 logo in UL
corner of screen. W9WI.com by state does show virtual 33 not 36. But
there is *another* KSCW-DT on RF 12 with 66.4 kW AND virtual 12.
Callsign of both KSCW-DT, but RF 33 is licensed as an LD, while RF 12
is LIC as DT. Is one of them really in Hutch, the other in Wich? NO,
same geo coords for both in W9WI.oom.

Again the only RF channel I am really getting is 12. 33 would be
blocked by KOCB ``34`` OKC, and I already had something else as above
on RF 36!

CBS for Wichita market was originally KTVH ch A12 Hutchinson, but its
successor KWCH Hutchinson is now W9WI.com-listed both RF and virtual
as channel 19 (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** U S A. 7489.90 approx., Oct 4 at 0610, surprised to find WBCQ on
air at this late hour, not even for TOMBS as on 6160- & 4790-, but
S9/+10 of rock music, 0611 Radio Newyork International singing ID,
0616 Allen Sane ID, taking a ``live`` call. Maybe some kind of test.
Wolfgang Bueschel, Germany, logged this shortly later, via a remote?
not specified: ``7489.904 poor string, empty, likely EXCITER string
outlet only, at 0629 UT. 73 wb df5sx wwdxc topnews``. It was certainly
full-power when I heard it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330, Oct 4 at 0139 check, no signal from WLCR/WBCQ; after
an absence, I had heard strong open carrier only 7 hours earlier, and
after that several others reported same intermittently; meanwhile the
WLCR relays via other sites were also absent. Still no 9330 signal at
2348 October 4 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7490-, Oct 4 at 2300, WBCQ with first half of `UBMP` I
missed 25 hours earlier, this time good music from Brunei. Who
remembers like I do, without looking it up, the last/only SW frequency
from there? Maryland remote SAS shows minus 95 Hz = 7489.905 at
S9+10/20. I am listening via that since own webcast is still distorted
into the red. Chopped off at 2330 for ID and ad for St. Jude`s, before
`Camp Constitution Radio` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UZBEKISTAN. 11539.90, Oct 4 at 1456, JBA talk. EiBi shows Voice of
Wilderness, for Korea North on ``11540``. Typical offfrequenciness by
Tashkent site. Per WRTH, VOW is produced in S Korea by Cornerstone
Ministries based in California (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
