Hauser
** EGYPT. 9899.605, Jan 24 at 2108, R. Cairo, S9+30 of nothing but
some hum into UTwente; by 2115 some occasional clix but no English
program modulation.

9899.605, Jan 25 at 2219, 25 hours later this time with extreme
unreadable distortion, not even obviously English, sounds like rubbing
a balloon. At least the off-frequency has been quite stable from night
to night. Off by 2245, so the SDR produces random tones among the
noise. What more can be said about this saduation?

Zach Liangas and Harold Frodge reported Cairo also distorted before
2100 for the French broadcast on 9884.6. What about Portuguese
scheduled to overlap from 2215 to 2330 on 9545? Also Abis but would
have to be a second transmitter. AFAIK this has not been reported in a
long time, nor the following imaginaries, 2330-0045 Arabic on 9730,
0045-0200 Spanish on 9900, all three for S America (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** GERMANY [non]. 15685, Jan 25 at 1547, S8/S9+10 sounds like German,
so it can`t be DWelle --- but listed as MALgache from AWR Talata,
MADABASCAR relay! Oops, MAL there stands for Malayalam, which is a
language in India, not Malaysia; as on page 499, WRTH 2022 under where
else, Thailand. Up the dial, 15770 definitely in German, so can`t be
DW either: WRMI must be a segment in the multilingual SMTV, which EiBi
and Aoki both imagine be all-English, which seems to be the default
for programmers such as SMTV, too lazy to be explicit (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** KURDISTAN [non]. 11530, Jan 25 at 1550, ME music S6-S9, two
carriers slightly apart, obvious double-het with offset USB tuning to
11529, i.e. Turkish jammer and Dengê Welat, but which is atop? Aoki
ignores the jammer but shows D.W. site switch from PRIDNESTROVYE to
FRANCE at 1500; EiBi says the change is at 1700! And also shows
Turkish jammer for entire span 0600-1900 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925-USB, Jan 24 at 2257, pirate music S8-S9,
``trance``? At first I thought it was AM, but the temporary
``carrier`` must have been some drone in the music. I bet it`s not
RCW, Chile, allegedly active around this daypart on this bandpart.
However, switching to LSB, I can hear some weak talk mixing with
remnants of the music beat. Off at 2306? No, just a pause, more music.
I`m in and out checking other stuff and never catch a voice
announcement, but 2312 SSTV beepery, a quick CW message my brain
doesn`t switch gear into in time, but it starts with WE---; more SSTV
to 2314.6*; *2315 songs, 2327 chopped and then another. Not recheck
until 2347 on other receiver and now it seems really off. These
confirm it`s WEZL and with an intriguing high-quality image:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,92102.0.html
Presumably unrelated to the licensed WEZL, 100 kW on 103.5 FM in
Charleston SC since 1971y. So much for pirates avoiding real callsigns
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PERU. 4810, Jan 25 at 0721, not even a JBA carrier, which was about
all I could get from R. Logos, nor for the past triple weeks in
bandscans, last logged here during this hour on Jan 1 & 4. Of course
it could still be on at other dayparts, not overnight. Last logs I
find of it were Jan 11 by LOB in Brasil, Jan 13-14 by Wilkner, FL,
both circa 0000 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Jan 24 at 2300, REE token English opens with Justin
Coe preview including Amy Egan with Spanish idioms and expressions:
that should be interesting; starts at 2308 after the news. Tho
S9+15/25 on the meter, reception is not at all clear and I can`t
follow it, anyway lasting only until 2311 before back to Justin to
interview someone who has just returned from UKOGBANI (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Jan 24 at 2300, no signal direct from VOT English to
North America, so I may listen to Spain and WEZL. But never give up?
Recheck at 2346, now it`s on S9/+10, but music just barely modulated.
So that`s the defective transmitter they have chosen to run today.
Something`s always erroneous at Emirler. At 2256 I can recognize the
JBM IS, and ID interruptions in German; 2300 timesignal 2 seconds
later than WWV, and opening German, spurious unscheduled broadcast, no
telling for how long. Something`s doubly erroneous at Emirler.

6125, Jan 25 at 0430, final repeat of VOT English to us is also JBM,
useless despite S9/+10. Triply erroneous.

5960, Jan 25 at 2300-2309+, NO signal into UTwente, after BBC Oman
closed at 2259.5. Who knows whether VOT will eventually wake up and/or
modulate decently. At *2311 East Turkistan, land of genocide against
Uighurs and other Moslems, cuts on Mandarin in progress and in the
clear (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Re 198 kHz, DI_W: a reply Jan 24 at 2147 UT: ``Hi Glenn!
Several posts today on ndblist@groups.io indicate that DIW-198 was
again keying properly. Steve Howe, Saint Albans, VT`` (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2122 monitoring, next:
2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955 to SSE [jammed?]
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2200 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW

** AUSTRALIA. (5035-USB), Jen replies to my reply about C.A.R.N.:

``[WOR] C.A.R.N. Correct stream & Pod --- I am sorry if for some
reason the wrong stream was working: I was testing at 1830 UT to ten
minutes before Live Cast begins: then at 1900 UT, GB gave me the OK to
go live: The following are first the live stream of Unique Radio:
http://uk4-vn.mixstream.net:8104/index.html?sid=1
The pod is here:
https://www.podomatic.com/podcasts/uniqueradioaus

From now on, I will include the above info whenever I send out in WOR
& N.A.S.W.A. or any other platform. So you can Listen to the cast ---
live or in the pod. Again, if this has caused grief, then I apologize:
to all who have tried to tune in. From Unique Radio & C.A.R.N staff,
73" & YL 33"`` (via Glenn Hauser, WOR)

** CUBA. Correxion: typo 4883 instead of 4783, fixed:
4747 & 4783 approx., Jan 20 at 0212, loud wideband scratchy
spurblobs out of 4765 R. Progreso, into Colombia SDR worse than heard
here before, but all cut off air at 0213* Something`s always wrong at
RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11760, Jan 24 at 1553, RHC #1 legacy frequency is S9+10/20 of
dead air. Something`s always wrong at RHC. More or less nominal at
widely varying strength and modulation levels on 15230, 15140, 13700,
9710, 9535 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. Re: 6925 AM PIRATE (NORTH AMERICA) Jan 22 at 2308,
rock at S8-S9, 2309 English talk with background noise, ``-- Dog?
Radio``, ``if you don`t like it, tune your radio to a different
frequency``. Hmmm, hadn`t thought of that. Bet it`s not RCW Chile, a
prime time for it nor on 7610. These say it`s Goatherder Radio, a
Zekey station:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,91989.0.html
(Hauser, OK, via NASWA Flashsheet)

But about an hour later, this correlates better with my ``Dog`` log:

``6925 USB PIRATE (No. Am.) Small Dog Radio, 0017, 1.23.22. "Back to
origin" - periodic OTHR blasts throughout song, SSTV - late start
(fuzzy dog with sun glasses), "Fuzz soup"- both by Mud Spencer, "KONG
(Killing our natural gender) using “10 little Monkeys jumping on the
bed" - Samssun, woman ID, Off (Mark Taylor – WI, ibid.)

** SPAIN. On Fri, Jan 21, 2022 at 06:50 PM, Glenn Hauser wrote:

``Göbbels gave fascists in Spain a 20 kW Telefunken transmitter in
1936 first installed in Salamanca, then moved somewhere else, and
finally to Madrid with Franco`s victory in 1939; but WTFK??``

``1095 kHz or about 274 metres -- eventually. According to "The First
Radio War: Broadcasting in the Spanish Civil War, 1936-1939" by Alan
Davies (an interesting article but behind a paywall except for some
universities):

"When the mobile transmitter was first commissioned, it had problems
finding a clear frequency as all the internationally agreed channels
were already allocated. After using the wavelengths of various low
powered Republican transmitters, Radio Nacional officially 'settled'
on the channel of the principal 10 kW station in Madrid, Unión Radio,
EAJ-7." -- (Richard Langley``, WOR iog)

** TURKEY. 17720+, Jan 24 at 1547, JBA carrier obviously off
frequency, not measured but less than 100 Hz. As in Aoki, has to be V
of Turkey this hour only in Arabic. Something`s always erroneous at
Emirler. Hardly anything else on 16 mb, except 17630, 17660, 17830 JBA
signals or carriers (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Re 198 kHz, Reply to my latest report of DI W:
``It's assumed 198 DIW is on the standby transmitter, with its "DI W"
distinctive sound of its ident. It's done this now and then over the
past several years, in fact it was completely off the air for almost a
year before it finally got fixed and back on. If Vernon the RNA Editor
noted every such occurrence, he'd soon get tired of doing that, so in
this particular case has done nothing to the RNA entry. :) 73,
Steve AA7U (veteran NDB DXer since the 1980s) Ratzlaff``

OK, no big deal but without documenting every single span, a general
note about this like yours would be helpful (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 420 MCW kHz, Jan 24 at 0710 UT, FQ, 25 watt ND beacon at
Fairmont MN, one of my ``regulars`` audible again, far enough from the
local noise peak just below 400 kHz. Also could make out 407 kHz, HRU
in Kansas, but not anything around 395 which I know exist. Noise
gradually tapers off downward to 350 kHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2122 monitoring: confirmed Sunday January 23
at 2100 on AM Italia, 1323 kHz only, via Noale SDR, good over CCI
causing a slight fast SAH. Did not have a chance to recheck whether it
played to 2129 conclusion, unlike truncation last week.

Confirmed Sunday January 23 at 2330 on WRMI 5950, VG S9+35 into
Knoxville SDR.

Also confirmed UT Mon Jan 24 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, S9+20 into Missouri
SDR.

NOT confirmed UT Mon Jan 24 at 0130 on WRMI 9395, replaced without
notice by some ham radio show at 01-02 also on 5950. WRMI program sked
grid continues to claim 9395 shows during this hour are also on 9455,
NOT the case.

Confirmed UT Mon Jan 24 at 0230 on WRN North America webcast.

Confirmed UT Mon Jan 24 at 0402 tune-in already underway on Area 51
via WBCQ 6159.950, S6-S9 direct. Next:

2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9955 to SSE [jammed?]
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW

** U S A. 15770, Jan 23 at 2010, this WRMI is quite undermodulated, on
the Maine SDR compared to just as big sigs from 15825 WWCR, 15610 WEWN
--- the latter with its persistent squeal. 15770 not making it at all
to UTwente, Euro target at 44 degrees! January 24 at 1550, 15770 is
still just barely modulated, presumably SMTV, S9+10 direct (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1130 kHz, Jan 24 at 1545 UT check, KLEY Wellington KS is
*still* dead air, S9+20 semi-local groundwave, also 24 hours vs KWKH
at night. I find it remarkable that no DX editors seem to be
interested in this incredible situation. If KLEY are not interested in
// 100.3 translator, might as well run continuous IDs as a DX test on
1130, ha. It could still be DXed from afar and logged as carrier only
if DFed to Wellington. 250 W day power (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 2097.3 CW, Jan 24 at 0707 UT, single-letter beacon A
every dekasecond, from anywhere but Quartzsite AZ. Also run across a
number of times lately without logging for the record; programming is
a bit boring and inadequate. It will be news if during good condx it
not be heard again. Quite weak but sufficient (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** AUSTRALIA. (5035), re C.A.R.N. not being heard on the Unique Radio
stream after 1900 UT Sat Jan 22: Jen replies that I didn`t listen long
enough beyond a music break, and provides a minute-by-minute rundown
of the 2-hour show, mostly talk. In fact I did listen almost an hour;
I replied,

``Jen, Great, but this is NOT what was on the stream I was getting
from uniqueradio according to your instruxions to go there to access
it. What about the `Sounds of Your Life` which was Tim`s own show I
was hearing starting at 1957????? This was some other UR stream than
the one you were on. You obviously do not understand that you need to
publicize a direct link to your stream rather than having listeners
hunt for it at UR website. Is your show available ondemand later? I
guess this is it I haven`t tried to play yet:
https://www.podomatic.com/podcasts/uniqueradioaus
73,`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9700, 6100, 6060, 6000, 5040, UT Sun Jan 23 at 0703, all
``Cuban Five`` RHC frequencies are off already; boding ill for
Esperanto at 0800. Wolfgang Buschel agrees they all went off by
0700/0701. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11760, Sun Jan 23 at 1607, RHC Esperanto S9/+10 with
humbuzz/distortion, // much weaker 15140. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. Re 94.3 KLGB-LP Enid kaput, frequency open for
translators of decent public radio stations: it`s not as if this is
the only spot a new local signal could be insqueezed; I am sure there
are others, but it`s proven as workable in Enid, so stations cannot
excuse as nowhere to go. Another ex-translator channel long open is
93.1, which used to relay KIMY 93.9 Watonga gospel huxter. Finding one
in the NCE band <92 MHz would be harder as it`s well cluttered with
gospel huxters local and nearby with only one decent public radio
signal, 91.7 KOSU from almost 100 km away.

100.9 in Enid once had plans -- APP or even CP? for a genuine LP
community radio station backed by among others the emergency
management honcho, but it came to naught, and KGWA nabbed the
frequency for a tailwagger of its far-right extremist dog 960
talkshows.

Of course KUCO or KGOU can be heard streaming, and in fact I do so,
but I am unapologetically advocating for real local public radio
signals on our dials, in one of OK`s larger cities, while smaller ones
like Woodward are way ahead of us, two vs zero, both to boot bigger
than mere translators. Per 2020 census, Enid is ninth largest in OK,
but it would be fourth if several suburbs of OKC and Tulsa were merged
with their metros. Woodward is #38! (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SLOVENIA. 18118 USB, Jan 23 at 1515, CQ 17 from S57DX, quickly
working K4OOH and W3DLD. Nice to hear something beyond N America on
band. Previously logged Nov 16, 2020, on exactly same frequency, same
hour. More info in logs before that on Nov 1 and 2 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** SPAIN [and non]. 11685, Jan 23 at 1608, REE still here toward
Africa, VP compared to ME 12030 which is also better than `our`
frequency, 9690. But there is also a JBA carrier on 11670, which may
be why REE went back to 11685. What could that be? CNR1 jamming and/or
VOA Tibetan via PHILIPPINES, but this hour only (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A. 198 MCW kHz, Jan 22 at 0813 UT, again tonight, DI_W, Dixon
NC beacon is miskeying with a space inserted. A reply to my first
report: ``Hi Glenn! DIW-198 has been reported miskeying for the past
couple of weeks on ndblist@groups.io. Unless there’s some indication
that a beacon’s miskeying will likely be a more or less permanent
issue, from a NOTAM or some sort of maintenance report, such miskeying
is not usually reported in the “notes” section of the RNA Signals
List. Steve Howe, Saint Albans, VT`` --- well, seems to me anything
amiss like that ought to be noted at least if it happen more than
once! Date correct, skipped last time. Not audible checked circa 0700
UT Jan 23 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 341 MCW kHz, Jan 23 at 0653 UT, for the record, EI Enid is
still off, so tuned to 341 USB, I do hear OIN, 25 watts from Oberlin
KS. Also mixing with JA, which is really on 344, 400 watts from
Jaxonvil FL (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 3370.5 USB, UT Sun Jan 23 at 0255, MARS net encountered on a
downscan before I hit any 90mb broadcasters. NCS is 6TJ, in contact
with HW, something about USB only and ham gear won`t do DSB. Then
making a ``lightning round`` calling station after station from the
roster, all with prefices missing, and each replying ``fully
operational``: 63C?, 6JX, 6VG, 6BI, 6BD, 6OI, 6HW. Sez AFT6YD will be
NCS tomorrow morning, evidently for the first time. This net
designator is 6TX1, implying Texas? And are they all with AFT-
prefices? Closing net by 0301, almost in time for Bob & Ray on
`Weekend Radio` from WCLV. See my last report of this net, October 20,
2021 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2122 monitoring: confirmed UT
Sunday January 23 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, right after Bob Zanotti butts
in with his name only in an repetitive automation glitch; S9+10 into
Lubbock West Texas SDR, which at first was tuned to 326 Midland TX
beacon MA -- which I also heard again direct at 0655 Jan 23.

Also confirmed on NEXUS/IBA webcast from about 0033.8 UT Sunday
January 23 following `Feature Story News`; but the player stops
several times, including just before 0100 so I can`t tell if WOR
playback is still being chopped off unnecessarily.

Also confirmed UT Sunday January 23 from 0431 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO,
S9+11 into nearby SDR.

Zzz, could not check 1330 Sunday on WMRI Europe via Germany 9670; did
anyone hear it? Next:

2100 UT Sunday IRRS 1323 and/or 918-Italy & 207?

** U S A. 5850, UT Sun Jan 23 at 0100-0200, `Encore` classical music
on WRMI, VG into MO SDR. Since the repeat 26 hours later did not work
out last week, I`m prioritizing it now this week, despite timeclash
with `Theater Organ Under the Arch` on WTWW-2, which anyway had not
started by 0100 but underway at a quick check 0113. On $ tereo webcast
I do catch the last few minutes 0200 until finished at 0206, back to
gospel huxtering and rock (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15770, Jan 23 at 1601, S9/+10 of dead air from this WRMI;
then JBM presumably SMTV. Still very undermodulated at 1940. If not
boosted, this will be bad for `Memphis Weirdos` at 20-21, Prague at
21-22. Something`s odd at Okeechobee (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 830.12 approx., Jan 22 at 0816 UT, WCCO with JIMBO
playback has a low audible heterodyne. Checked 18 hours later, not
heard. What could it be, MWOffsets? Nothing further up than .0653 a
couple Brazilians (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15367.5 USB, approx., Jan 23 at 1603, 2-way in Spanish
INTRUDERS (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** AUSTRALIA. CARN - Calling All Radio Nutzz, publicized by Jen to
occur at 19-21 UT Sat Jan 22 on Unique Radio 5035-USB and stream: so I
bring up the stream at 1915 and past 1927 hear nothing but rock music,
apparently by a DJ in Los Angeles, altho an Unique Radio ID inserted.
C.A.R.N. was supposed to include: ``prop news, Segments From Around
The HF Radio Spectrum, besides, HF audio files to play for you. GB's
logs From the Past, Musical Interlude, Dx-News, & last but not least,
Our Live HF tuning segment From South FL, Jen & GB From England seeing
what`s hot on the "Waves"`` --- but no sign of that with Jen nor in
following semihour when I leave the rock on in the background.

Since radio and internet are already saturated with rock, why does
anyone think we want more of it??? At 1957, however, Aussie Tim is
introducing his own signature show, `Sounds of Your Life` -- well,
maybe his life. Must be a very old recording as he claims to be also
on WINB 13755-DRM, Wed/Thu/Fri at 1400-1500, which is not even its
current frequency; and on 5045 which is not even his own current
frequency, from Gunnedah NSW, not his current location. The Unique
Radio website is quite a mess if you try to figure out what`s on when,
more and more DJ shows (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9700, Jan 22 at 0805 UT, RHC is *still* on the air, not a
typo, S9+10 but JBM in English. 5040, only other frequency still on at
0807 Jan 22, but is the S9+20/30 dead air in English or Spanish? Take
that, Vanuatu! Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 11880, Jan 22 at 2215, RHC with weather report in English, S9
but undermodulated with hum; 11850 Spanish is S9+25/S8 but suptorted
and pulsing; 11760 S8-S9 distorted. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6933 USB, Jan 22 at 2253, S9/+23 but distorted,
overmodulated playing ``Wheels``; 2254.7 SSTV beepery; 2256.6 no
announcement, surfin` tune; 2258.7 another SSTV already; 2300.6
another surfin` song; 2302.7 ``Wipeout``, still distorted. If you are
really out on the waves, you certainly are not listening to any music
so how is this a subgenre all its own? Tune away briefly, then 2308
recheck it`s off. If there were ever any ID, sign-off announcement, I
missed it, but am confident there will be HFU reports:

Outhouse Radio since 2204, with noisy images (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6925 AM, Jan 22 at 2308, rock at S8-S9, 2309 English
talk with background noise, ``-- Dog? Radio``, ``if you don`t like it,
tune your radio to a different frequency``. Hmmm, hadn`t thought of
that. Bet it`s not RCW Chile, a prime time for it nor on 7610. These
say it`s Goatherder Radio, a Zekey station:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Jan 22 at 2258 direct, S9+15/25 of open carrier: then
I barely hear the VOT IS JBM, 2300 unreadable sign-on. So today`s
transmitter is the one which hardly modulates. Over to the pirate
band, where there is *over* modulation. Something`s always erroneous
at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K. Audioviewed another webcast of Radio Emma Toc by Jim Salmon,
Sat Jan 22 at 1600-1800 UT; continuous talk, calling out to a few
chatters, several brief AV clips mostly about offshore pirate radio.
Said he was recording and entirety would be available for replay:
https://www.mixcloud.com/live/RadioEmmaToc/
and so it is, in brief check afterwards. Next one will be on
anniversary of original RET, Mon Feb 14. Has been on WRMI and Channel
292 before and plans some more SW sometime (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5830, Jan 22 at 0807 UT, not a typo, WTWW-1 is still on with
PPPP, S9+40. Therefore, 5085 WTWW-2 must also be on: yes, S9+40 of
rock music. How much longer? 5085 is on again before 2300 since it`s
Saturday (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9899.605, Jan 21 at 2201 & 2226 chex via UTwente, R. Cairo
is on at S9+25/35 but almost dead air in English, occasional traces of
modulation peaks. Wiggle that patchcord! Would that the fix were that
simple. Something`s always egregious at Egypt (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ITALY [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO is scheduled to be pre-empted once
a month on third Friday by IRRS at 1915, and indeed at 1918 check Jan
21, music is playing on 7290 via Bulgaria, into UTwente, weak with
QRM; and on 1323 from AM Italia. Anyway I check out the QRM situation:
918 is off leaving La Inter, Madrid to dominate. 1323 has CCI, but at
2000 via Noale SDR I hear the IRRS ``sign-off`` with the other Verdi
theme, mixing with end of minority German service from Romania, and a
long tone. We hope it will be better at 2130 for remaining airing of
WOR: see USA [and non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 94.3: On Jan 20 we got this note: ``Glenn, of
interest in the local Enid area: I see that KLGB-LP 94.3 turned in its
license on January 19, so that frequency should be open for your FMDX.
Stephen Luce, Houston, Texas``

I immediately confirmed that KLGB-LP is off the air. While ``open``
for DX, it`s also open for a much needed public radio translator from
KGOU at OU in Norman; or KUCO-FM, classical Edmond-OKC. KGOU has zero
signal into Enid except very marginally with a little tropo help from
its 88.1 relay in Woodward, especially on west side of Enid, but too
close to a local translator on 88.3. KGOU 106.3 is totally blocked by
a local; its NE OKC relay KROU 105.7 could barely make it here if it
were not for another damn gospel huxter translator on 105.5. KUCO 90.1
is marginal direct, picket-fencing and not enough for $ tereo to break
thru on caradio, or to attain full quieting. It also has
better-than-translator relays in the small towns of Woodward and
McAlester, both useless here. I notified both stations of 94.3 now
being available in Enid, and one of them is looking into it.

January 21 circa 1930 UT on caradio I check out what remain on 94.3:
another gospel huxter marginally dominates, which must be per WTFDA
Database:

``KCVW 94.3 KINGMAN KS RELIGIOUS TEACHING BOTT RADIO NETWORK 100.0
100.0 253.0 253.0 37-46-26 97-30-52 1780 Bott Radio Network
Religious Talk``

134 km = 83 statute miles, city-to-city northward. There are three
other further and weaker Kansans. It also has some CCI which must be
an Okie, most likely:

``K232FI KSPI-780 94.3 STILLWATER OK ADULT ALTERNATIVE PETE 94.3 0.25
0.25 0.0 0.0 36-10-47 97-00-38 Focus on 90s/early 2000's
alternative``

-- i.e. the translator wagging the dog of 780 branding, even tho KSPI
has had its own full FM on 93.9/93.7 for many years but separately
identified and programmed. There is also a 12 kW in Elk City, KXOO,
Classic Rock, Kool 94.

Circa 1935 UT Jan 21, I drive right up to the KLGB transmitter site
just north of Poplar intersexion with N Van Buren = US 81; just in
case its exciter still be on: no, right next to the tower I am getting
CCI from the two other stations. Sign still says ``Home of KLGB
94.3``. Last owner was Covenant Life, a church elsewhere in Enid. It
was a pretty worthless station, long dispensed with any local
programming, plugged into some gospel rock satellite service; and
frequently failing with distortion or dead air.

FCC FM Query now gets no hit for KLGB. Even tho deleted, ought to
preserve data for historical purposes! (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SPAIN. 9690, Fri Jan 21 at 2300, tokEnglish from REE, S9+20
excellent to N America, much weaker //s 12030 > 11940 >>
11685-not-11670. No contest today whether to hear this or Turkey, a
JBA carrier on 5960 from East Turkistan instead. Opening news by
Justin Coe about Spain`s stance on the Ukraine/Russia situation
distracts me as JC is pronouncing the Spanish Foreign Minister as if
``Alvárez`` instead of the common MexAmerican surname Álvarez accented
on first A. But uplooked later, he`s correct: ``Ministro de Asuntos
Exteriores, Unión Europea y Cooperación, José Manuel Albares, Desde el
12 de julio de 2021``.

2307 to Amy Egan`s first feature, the 85th anniversary of Spanish
National Radio, Jan. 19, 1937. Göbbels gave fascists in Spain a 20 kW
Telefunken transmitter in 1936 first installed in Salamanca, then
moved somewhere else, and finally to Madrid with Franco`s victory in
1939; but WTFK?? Features a song by a partisan altho Argentine-born.

2318 ID, another song, and another feature about the long-running
series on TVE, `Cuéntame` - or in English, Remember When? but said to
be equivalent to the American series `The Wonder Years`. It`s still
being renewed after 20 years. Stories of a fixional family thru the
years, set first in 1968y, thru the death of Franco in November 1975,
now reaching the 1990s (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960, Fri Jan 21 at 2300 & 2330 chex direct, JBA carrier,
so no contest whether to listen to English from VOT or from SPAIN
which is inbooming on 9690. As suspected, at 2333 check of UTwente, no
VOT at all, just Chinese from East Turkistan, std. remark (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2122 monitoring: pre-empted as
expected from 1915 on IRRS 7290 & 1323 this third Friday January 21;
see ITALY [and non]. Confirmed Fri Jan 21 when next scheduled, 2130 on
AM Italia only: unlike before 2000 as heard via nearby Noale SDR, 1323
is also clear of QRM so Romania is off by now? S9+10. No longer
chopped off air before ending, heard complete to 2159, with a slight
rippling SAH from algo. Not much ACI either. Not on 918 or 207.

Barely confirmed UT Saturday January 22 at 0230 on WRMI 9395: JBA
carrier direct = 9455 and 9955 only slightly better JBA. Remotes?
Nothing to Colombia but beamed NNW; does not reach Winnipeg; JBA S5-S7
to Knoxville; S6 noisy, and lessening to Missouri SDR. Next:

partying. John Carver agrees (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
