Tuesday, July 26 2022

Hauser
** BRAZIL. 9664.101V, July 26 at 0631, RVM now drifting downward,
almost minus one kHz from nominal 9665, S7/S9 with praise music, usual
VG modulation (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15230, July 26 at 1450, RHC Spanish is S9/+10 but just barely
modulated, while // 15140 is merely undermodulated. 26 de julio: time
for my annual salute to The Revolution with my parody motto: ``Patria
o Suerte, ¡Pensaremos!`` I am still awaiting photographic evidence of
this being scrawled on any public surface inside Cuba.

For those who don`t get it, instead of ``Fatherland or Death, We Shall
Overcome``, I refer to the millions of Cubans who have or are
considering fleeing the country: ``Fatherland or Fortune, We`ll Think
About It``, as many have prospered in Florida, or at least attained
Freedom (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EGYPT. 9439.995, July 25 at 2206, R. Cairo, S9+30/40 into UTwente,
with huge humwhine over distorted English. Something`s always
egregious in Egypt.

9440, July 26 at 2119 and still 2145, even worse, S9+35/45 into
UTwente with big humwhine, only occasional modulation spikes on and
off, totally unusable (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALDIVES [non]. 11620, July 26 at quick check 1525, Voice of
Martyrs Korea, secret site maybe Taiwan, S7/S9 into UTwente, still in
English not Dhivehi; has huge second-adjacent QRM splash from 11610 in
American English which means it must be CRI: yes, 500 kW, 269 degrees
from Kashgar, EAST TURKISTAN, land of imperialist ChiCom genocide
against Uighurs and other Moslems (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Monday July 25 at 2200, REE again token English-less,
like it was on Friday; instead continues in Castilian with feature
about Mexican corrida music. Ken Zichi confirms there was English last
week on Mon & Wed July 18 & 20 but not Friday. We hope it`s just a
summer vacation, but how about telling us what`s up? At

https://www.rtve.es/play/audios/emision-en-ingles/
as of July 25, last podcast dated 16/07 and says:

``English Language Broadcast --- Justin Coe y Amy Margaret Egan
Lunes, miércoles y viernes a las 22.00 horas UTC, martes, jueves y
sábado a las 02.00 horas reemisión

The English Language Broadcast of Radio Exterior de España has been on
the air since 1944. Our daily [sic] broadcasts seek to inform
listeners about goings-on in Spain, as well as offer a Spanish
perspective on world events. News, sports and weather, presented live,
are followed on weekdays by a variety of different programs on
subjects ranging from art and culture to history, politics, and the
latest trends. These programs can be heard again at the weekend.``

The 0200 repeat must be from the distant past, let alone weekend
repeats on SW. The podcasts typically run over 30 minutes, so
presumably are original, then edited down for SW. But has it all been
canceled??? Would anyone who has had direct personal contact with
Justin or Amy, ask them what`s going off? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830.001, July 25 at 2213, VOT English is on today,
S9+35/45 into UTwente, with loud hum but tolerable, new frequency
ex-9830.021 so a different transmitter than usual? Concluding `Review
of the Tuerkiyeish Press` at 2215 to multi-lingual ID reel filler,
which was recently redone with different background music. 2217 other
music; 2221 ``Voice of Tuerkiye, always by your side`` -- what does
that really mean? 2222 song, 2225 `Feeling Supreme` theme and 2226 YL
with natural remedies for arthralgia = joint pain, about a dozen,
starting with: massage, ginger, swimming, oil, sycamore leaves,
turmeric, pineapple [std. disclaimer], until 2231 as I turn my
attention to NBC Nightly [sic] News; did perceive carrier drop at
2257* (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE [non]. 7730, July 26 at 0500-0506, UR1 via WRMI, `Ukraine:
Security Issue` for July 25 = day 152 of Putin`s war, starting with
more shelling of Kharkiv, killing civilians (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. VOA`s Polygraph.info --- Just heard this referenced on
Flashpoint: Ukraine, July 26 circa 1940 on WRMI 15770:

Glenn Hauser, PO Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5072.1 & 5097.9, July 26 at 0637, spurs from 5085 WTWW are
JBA carriers vs high storm noise level, so not eliminated tho
sometimes inaudible; you never know whether will be on this late
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330.061, July 26 at 1456, WLCR via WBCQ still too far
off-frequency for the 500 kW SuperStition, S8/S9 in English (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 2149 UT July 26

** CANADA [and non]. Replies to my July 23 USA and non FM DX report:

```On Sun, Jul 24, 2022 at 06:57 PM, Glenn Hauser wrote:
``92.9 at 0022, CCI to above MT from ``Channel 4 Weather Centre``,
likely referring to CFCN-TV Calgary, really RF 29 now.``

I don't think "Channel 4 Weather Centre" has a Calgary connection.
CFCN, like practically all Canadian television stations, no longer
uses its call letters or channel number to identify itself, which is a
real shame IMHO. Since the late '00s, CFCN advertises itself as CTV
Calgary. The news is CTV News Calgary and its weather forecasts are
referred to as Skywatch Weather.

``92.1 at 0023, Calgary ads, for -- Coast, mortgages; country CCI;
0025 traffic report about Deerfoot? Trail, ``CJ-92, text 92-92-92;
phone = Calgary (403) 249-CJ92: CJAY-FM 92.1 CALGARY AB CAN ROCK C-JAY
100.0 kW 298.5 m --- 2075 km = 1289 mi``

Deerfoot Trail is correct — it's the city's primary north-south
freeway. 73, Ricky Leong, Calgary, Alberta, Canada```

The Channel 4 reference must then have been CCI about a US station.
The 92.9s elsewhen were in MT and WA. Spokane has a virtual 4, KXLY.
Searching on `Channel 4 Weather Center`` gets nowhere, and then there
is KXLF in Butte, not the 92.9 city but Great Falls. Informal names
for TV weather shops are too generic; and it`s even harder to match up
online which radio stations have deals with which TV stations for
weather info -- often unrelated businesses. This is certainly the case
in OKC, Tulsa.

``Hi Glenn, On 7/24/2022 6:57 PM, 'Glenn Hauser' via WTFDA wrote:
94.5 at 0013, country; 0016, text 548-82-88, `Today`s country, Chad?
94-5`

This one would be "Today's country, Chat (i.e. CHAT), my local, before
Great Falls took over. I experienced the same opening, mostly OK and
TX stations, though also a few from KS, MO, AR, NM. It's been a busy
weekend, so haven't finished going over everything yet. A mixture here
of live listening on the truck radio, and some recording on the ELAD.
73, Nigel Pimblett, Dunmore, AB``

Tnx, Nigel and Ricky. Of course later on July 23 in a separate opening
at 1801 I had a stand-alone log of CHAT 94.5 Medicine Hat (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** EUROPE. 6185.040, July 24 at 1958, pirate Free Radio Service
Holland with publicized broadcast, rock, mentions YouTube, DJ in
Dutch, S7/S8 into UTwente, 1959 English ID, 2000 ``Dave Scott`s Radio
Waves on FRS Holland``. Nominal span was 19-21 UT. ACI from 6180,
German weather station. Unfortunately at 20-22 UT Sundays I like to
listen to `Wind & Rhythm` band music, and `Feminine Fusion`, classical
music composed and/or performed by women, on KUCO in $ tereo. Two other
FRSH frequencies turned out to be flexible as many others reported,
7700 and 5800 up or down to avoid QRM. More such programming planned
next two Sundays, except no 6185 on July 31 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** FRANCE. 13735, July 25 at 1502, marine weather info in French,
S5/S7 into Maryland with deep fades; as another ``Mini-Trans-At``
yacht race is underway from France to Azores, prompting daily
broadcasts via Issoudun at 1500-1530 for the racers. Per HFCC
registrations effective from July 19. Expect there will be a second
leg later, truly T-A, from Azores to Caribbean.

Same non-professional announcer switches to English at 1511, citing
conditions as of 12 UTC at certain geo coordinates. At 1520 starts
mixing French and English. It seems to me a visual display, e.g. fax
would be much more usable aboardyachts, but maybe they don`t have
fancy receiving equipment. Chopped off abruptly at 1530* while still
speaking. Also scheduled on 5975, unchecked.

Dave Kenny reports to BDXC-UK:
``This transmission is listed in HFCC from 19 July until 16 August:
http://hfcc.org/data/schedbybrc.php?seas=A22&broadc=TDF

HFCC also lists a schedule of "Sailor DRM tests" taking place until 30

** UKRAINE [non]. 7730, July 25 at 0501-0507, UR1 via WRMI, good into
Maryland SDR, `Ukraine: Security Issue` for July 24 = Day 151 of
Putin`s war: 280 Russian troops ``liquidated`` in past 24 hours; and
much more war news (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2148 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
July 24 after 2000 on IRRS SW via AM Italia, 1323 only, S9/+10 with
fast SAH, ACI into nearby Noale SDR.

Also confirmed Sunday July 24 at 2230 on WRMI 5950, S9+8/12 into
Georgia SDR: still running tho not on skedgrid.

Also confirmed UT Monday July 25 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, S7/S9 into
Maryland SDR with storm noise.

Also confirmed UT Monday July 25 at 0300, S9/+10 on Area 51 via WBCQ
6159.939 into PEI SDR, calibration correct with WWV 10000. Next:

** CANADA. Note there are a few Canadian logs in my USA [and non] UT
July 23 sporadic E FM DX report in chronological order

** OKLAHOMA. There are some incidental state logs mixed in with USA
[and non] FM DX report in chronological order for July 23

** U S A [and non]. Another big sporadic E opening, Friday evening, UT
Saturday July 23 from the NW centered on Montana; nexus for most paths
is over S/E Wyoming. A few from Alberta. Also Idaho, as far as into
Washington state. Would love to get some BC, possible from SE corner,
but not this time. Just one bit of ND and of SD. A few lead to
low-power translators. Quotes from WTFDA FM Database.

All u.o.s. on Nissan 2004 stock caradio parked in hot garage, with
daily highs well 100+; vertical fender antenna only, no RDS, no
even-frequency side-tuning, no internet access until later research.
No recordings. All logged in real time by my own ears on own receiver,
no remotes to compare with streams. All times UT in chronological
order; including some Oklahoma spoilers. PTA = probable target area.

I am not counting stations, states or anything and not in competition.
Rather, each DX log is a potential learning experience. Some are
presumed or circumstantial, and any correxions or help with IDing are
very welcome. Distances approx., city-of-license to Enid, not site to
site, from distancefromto.net Showing distances does not necessarily
imply more definite logs, but pertinent info.

92.3 at 0012, M&W plugging Disney movie, music over talk; 0015, ``The
Most Music and the Most Hits, 92-3 and 95-3, Star ## Radio``. No hits
on slogan but on Star and two-freq match, and see more at 0112:
KKMT 92.3 RONAN MT CONTEMPORARY HIT RADIO STAR 92 60.0 kW 707.0 m ---
1819 km = 1130 mi; and the 95.3, not heard, would be:
K237GF relays:KKMT 92.3 95.3 KALISPELL MT CONTEMPORARY HIT RADIO STAR
92 --- the much smaller Ronan is between Kalispell & Missoula

94.5 at 0013, country; 0016, text 548-82-88, ``Today`s country, Chad?
94-5`` -- must have been Max. Further: at 0028, ``Accu-weather
85/55/85 on the Central Montana Radio Network``, Great Falls IDs.
0038, adstring including MT Dept of Transportation; The Man Shop in
Great Falls; 0046 The Man Shop, which is barber in GF:
KMON-FM 94.5 GREAT FALLS MT COUNTRY 94.5 MAX COUNTRY 98.0 kW 151.0 m

96.7 at 0017, country, fade; also at 0030; 0035 plug Women`s Expo, AC
(406) 761-7600. Weather by YL, 50-55 lows, Sat 80-85, Sun 75-85 highs;
Great Falls ad, which is bigger city S of Shelby; 0058 country/rock.
Again much later at 0228, 761-7650, JCPenny, ``Wide Open Country T?-96
FM``:
KZIN-FM 96.7 SHELBY MT COUNTRY K-96 WIDE OPEN COUNTRY 100.0 kW 168.0 m
--- 1763 km = 1096 mi

97.1 at 0018, interview with kidvoice, briefly vs local 96.9 ACI;
unlikely the CHR in Billings outside PTA, KKBR, but two relig MTs:
KALS 97.1 KALISPELL MT RELIGIOUS TEACHING YOUR NETWORK OF PRAISE 26.5

OR even?:
KSMR-LP 97.1 GREAT FALLS MT RELIGIOUS TEACHING 0.029 kW 54.1 m ---
1657 km = 1029 mi

97.3 at 0019, ``Hail Mary, full of grace``, fade. Nevermore in 2+

KNEH-LP 97.3 HELENA MT RELIGIOUS TEACHING 0.1 kW -71.0 m horiz only
BELOW average terrain HELENA CMTY EDUCATIONAL ASSN --- 1630 km = 1013

A stronger possibility might be this, just west of Spokane WA, except
it`s on the KRTM network, evangelical but not overtly Catholic:
KKRS relays:KRTM 88.1 97.3 DAVENPORT WA RELIGIOUS TEACHING 5.1 kW
220.0 m --- 2081 mi = 1293 mi

95.5 at 0020, country; none in Montana, but nearby Alberta:
CHLB-FM 95.5 LETHBRIDGE AB CAN COUNTRY COUNTRY 95.5 100.0 kW 173.0 m

There is another AB country further north, unlikely:
CKGY-FM 95.5 RED DEER AB CAN COUNTRY REAL COUNTRY 95.5 100.0 kW 256.5
m --- 2163 km = 1344 mi

93.5 at 0021 FRENCH Canadian chat briefly, likely CBC. Unless it`s a
spoiler leftover via a separate opening from Kenora ON, as I concluded
earlier this summer,
CKSB-7-FM relays:CKSB-1050 93.5 KENORA ON CAN French NEWS/TALK ICI
RADIO-CANADA PREMIERE 20.0 kW 100.0 m --- 1542 km = 958 mi to NNE

ICI RADIO-CANADA PREMIERE 1.798 kW 122.6 m --- 1909 km = 1186 mi
ZP is a bilingual village in the NE part of inhabited SK, i.e. east
central overall. Can`t find it exactly on my atlas. There are lots of
low-powers in MB; only 93.5 in AB is full power in English commercial

92.9 at 0022, Grace Veterans Homeless Center is having a bash 7/22.
Grace Home Veterans Center is in Great Falls. 0022, ad for The Man

92.9 at 0022, CCI to above MT from ``Channel 4 Weather Centre``,

Ricky Leong, Calgary, tells me: ``Hi Glenn, CJAY-FM actually uses its

very short list of go-to music stations on local FM — part of a
smaller company and populated only with local hosts, which is nice.

91.9 at 0024, CCI preacher and music. One probably my fringer:

finally install the box fan in the back seat of car for a little

different definite ID --- 1769 km = 1099 mi

97.5 at 0034, CCI including an online pharmacy phone 452-0205 only
clue. Surprised that several widely dispersed pharmacies hit this
phone in broad search such as Milledgeville GA, Sheboygan WI. Might
also be from a nearby fringer

96.3 at 0037, pet vet ad. Besides two xltrs in MT, two full-powers,
PTA more likely west than KRZN Billings to the SE:

Hauser
** ALGERIA [and non]. 15340 was first reported by Jorge Freitas,
Brasil, to the WOR iog as unID in Arabic, July 22 at 2345. It remained
on air long into the night and then numerously monitored. Ultimately
concluding that TDA is *finally* on air, testing at least from own
site(s) inside Algeria, besides the long-standing relays via France.

Otherwise occupied, I did not get on it until 2030 July 23, and posted
at 2043: ``So do we have both sites suddenly testing? Altho not
adhering to registered times, 17600 is supposedly Béchar and 15340
Ourgla. 15340 is S5-S6 into UTwente, going from Arabic talk to song at
2030. If you can hear both, see if they are exactly synchronized; and
compare to ISSoudun?``

``Glenn, they're in sync. Reception from Feira de Santana-BA, Brazil
https://youtube.com/shorts/DnjQvclsfqg?feature=share
73 Jorge Freitas, Feira de Santana, Bahia 12°14´S 38°58´W -
Brasil, Tecsun PL-660, XHDATA, Antena Delta Loop e LW 20 metros``

``Jorge, Tnx for discovering and following this. Listening via
UTwente: at 2055, 15100 much stronger than 15340; woman mainly in
Arabic, but mixing in some French - an Algerian thing, I guess. After
2100 the two ISSouduns are still on, 5930 much better than 9585, with
different Arabic programming than 15100. Glenn``

15100 an unregistered frequency, also discovered by Jorge Freitas.
Here`s HFCC to look for other possible frequencies.
http://hfcc.org/data/schedbybrc.php?seas=A22&broadc=TDA
The Ourgla frequencies registered, mostly for a few hours each: 7430,
15340, 15700, 17550, 9835, 13600; Bechar: 9750, 7205, 9750, 15680,
17600, 21500, 15250. TDA had been registering extensive skeds for many
years, but delay after delay in getting new sites on air. Will the
ISSoudun relays soon be dropped? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, July 23 at 1518-1558, no signal from
LRA36 into Argentine remote, missing another Saturday. Might have come

earlier at 1509 via same remote (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

vicinities (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13630 approx., July 23 at 1452, RHC spurblob with F# tone,
mod better audible in AM than FM; out of 13700 transmitter which is
S9/+10. Not much of a match on 13770, and just traces at second-orders
circa 13834? and 13560 vs constant local RFID? beepery. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE [non]. 7730, July 24 at 0500-0507, UR1 via WRMI, VG via
Maryland remote, `Ukraine: Security Issue` for July 23 = Day 150 of
Putin`s war; including, Russians shelled Odesa despite ``agreement``

have been fired into Ukraine since war started (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

acknowledged switching away from it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA [and non]. July 23 at 0021-0026 UT I had two Calgary FM
stations in a huge almost 3-hour sporadic E opening mainly from
Montana and NW states: 92.9, CFEX-FM a.k.a. X92.9; 92.1, CJAY-FM
a.k.a. CJ-92; and something in French on 93.5, the closest being
CBKF-FM-3 in Zenon Park, Sask. These will be reported in full once the
whole report has been researched and compiled (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. Correxion: these were on July 18, not 17, entirely fixed:

96.7 FM, July 18 at 1646 UT, lexure in Spanish
during big mixed sporadic E and tropo openings; 1658 song with refrain
``Guajira``. 1659, ``Rebelde, La Habana, Emisora de la Revolución,
1700 ``Noticiero Nacional de Radio``. 1711 still in with Cuban
mentions, national weather summary, 1713 ``NN de R`` program ID again,
``en AM, FM y Onda Corta``.

Cuban FM DX is rare here, mostly too far for single-hop sporadic E,
but Habana is possible at 2095 km = 1302 miles, and westward. WTFDA FM
Database has three Rebeldes on 96.7, Bayamo and Moa too far, but this
must be:

CMBA-FM 96.7 CD. HABANA CH NEWS/TALK/VARIETY RADIO REBELDE 1.0 kWH 0.0
kWV 100.0 m HAAT 23-07-16 82-18-54 REBELDE Tx site Loma de la
Cruz/Regla
There are three other non-Rebelde 96.7s, one further west, R Mantua,
but presumably would not be RR relayers at midday. Only 1 kW
horizontal only, not very impressive for a flagship!?

Meanwhile I am hunting for other Cubans! Only one possibility:
99.1, July 18 at 1703, some CCI in Spanish. Besides two low-power
translators, this is the only full-power, and same site as 96.7:
CMBF-FM 99.1 CD. HABANA CH CLASSICAL/OPERA/ARTS RADIO MUSICAL NACIONAL
8.0 kWH only 100.0 m 23-07-16 82-18-54 RADIO TAINO Tx site Loma de la
Cruz/Regla --- R. Taíno is in the ``PS Info`` column, not sure what
that mean in practice (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2148)

** EGYPT. 9439.995, July 22 at 2152, NO signal of R. Cairo English
into UTwente (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** HAWAII. 8764-USB, July 22 at 0623, robotic marine weather citing
geo coordinates in the Pacific, S9 peaks but rough modulation. USCG
broadcasts are typically poorly modulated, something which any ham
would not put up with from his own station. EiBi shows NMO, USCG
Honolulu at 0600-0635. Its other times: 0005-0040, 1200-1235,
1800-1835; while frequency is timeshared with many more broadcasts
from USCG NMN Chesapeake VA and NMC Point Reyes CA. XSR Haikou Radio
could also be there 24h in Mandarin, and XSU Yantai Radio at 07-21,
unheard now (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Friday July 22 at 2200, REE timesignal, and --- NO
token English without explanation, instead something in Castilian
about Canciones Ténebres; usual good signal anyway into Maryland SDR.
English supposed to be M/W/F 2200-2230; maybe they ran out of rerun
material? Google translate insists that Tenebres is Catalan; but
further research implies originally French denoting darkness (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830+, July 22 at 2200, VOT succeeds transmitting the
English almost-hour, S9+25/35 into UTwente, BUT with constant
squealing, characteristic I guess of one particular transmitter or
feedline, as happens occasionally. Something`s always erroneous at
Emirler. Opening news emphasizes the Ukra/Rusky agreement about grain
shipments reached in Türkiye. Also, new frequency, 9830.017
ex-9830.021 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE [non]. 7730, July 23 at 0500-0507, UR1 via WRMI, `Ukraine:
Security Issue` including Russia has lost 39,000 troops; 5000 reports
of children forcibly deported; Russia still stealing grain from
farmers; ports blockaded, but agreement to allow some exports reached
in Turkey. Good as usual via Maryland SDR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2148 monitoring: confirmed first
broadcasts, UT Friday July 22 at 0130 on WRMIs: 5850, S9+20/30; 7730,
S9/+10 direct, both noisy.

Also confirmed UT Friday July 22 at 0330 on WRMI 7780, S8/S9 direct.

Also confirmed Friday July 22 at 1430 on WRMI 9955, S9/S6 direct,
trace of jamming. Next:

Also confirmed Friday July 22 at 1815.8 on IRRS SW via Bulgaria, 7290,
S7/S8 into UTwente and also on AM Italia, 1323 & 918 kHz about the
same into Noale SDR, but not 207 kHz; to completion almost 1845; then
fill music, 1849 UN News interview about a musician who had an
accident in Sardinia. 1857* 7290 chopped off already while 1323 & 918
continue with music. Also tuned in earlier: 1323 & 918 at 1758
``welcome to Country Jamboree`` for the week of July 17, just in time
to be chopped off at 1800 for IRRS `SW` ID and FSN; while as always,
7290 did not chop on until 1800.8, JIP FSN including Spotlite segment
at 1803, 1805 IRRS ID with Milano PO Box otherwise denied, music. 1813
bird calls and open TUC Radio, about effects of climate change on
marine life, just in time to be chopped off at 1815 for another long
IRRS SW ID and then WOR.

Also confirmed Fri July 22 at 2030.3 on AM Italia 918 & 1323,
following IRRS SW ID claiming that it`s on reduced carrier USB, which
it is not; besides not even being on SW air ever at this hour. Tuned
in at 2028 to a show of music from Ulster, before it`s chopped short.
1323 has ACI seemingly Romania on both sides 1314 & 1332, and now fast

** U S A. (7489.9v), UT Sat July 23 at 0000, WBCQ webcast of `AAAWWW`,
soon obvious as new since refers to last week`s show about the
Webbscope. Once again, Angela is remote on a lo-fi phoneline. But I am
called to the car for FM DXing for almost 3 hours. Once again, I
request if anyone else listen to this show and hear any significant
info about WBCQ, such as new programming, technical matters such as
the crashing SuperStition, buying up other SW stations, please report
it to the WOR iog or to me (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5129.971, UR Sat July 12 at 0252-0300, managed to catch a
few minutes of Greek Music Refuge, new show on WBCQ R. Angela,
presented by Bill Tilford, but our longtime DX contributor Zacharias
Liangas says he compiled the playlist. In the absence of ERT on SW any
more. S9+10 but noisy storm crashes into Maine SDR (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A [and non]. After a few days of tantalizing not-quite sporadic
E FM DX paths to OK, UT Sat July 23 at 0000 I see MUFs exceeding 100
MHz to the NW of here on DXMAPs, so head for the hot car in the
garage. I`m there for almost 3 hours of continuous DXing, centered on
Montana, but also from Alberta, Idaho, Washington, South Dakota at
least. Occupying 5 pages in my log notebook, it will take some time to
research and compile completely (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 7849.3 LSB, July 22 at 0619, weak 2-way seems Spanish,
vs QRM from CHU as I am investigating its vestigial LSB. Never notice
it in normal USB or AM tuning (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
