** CUBA. 6060, July 18 at 0616, RHC English check: this one strong
humbuzz over JBA modulation; 6100 sufficient; all others off, 6165,
6000 and 5040. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** OKLAHOMA. 90.1, UT Sun July 18 during pre-bedtime relaxation?
KUCO-FM Edmond which is supposed to be relaying overnight classical
music from WCPE in NC, instead at 0537-0549 is firing its canned ID,
the same one over and over, every few minutes, long dead air, bit of
some classical music, and again. Finally Kimberly announces that they
are in backup programming while maintenance is underway. She
introduces the same fill music again but it`s always being
interrupted. I time starts of several IDs at these separations: 4:19,
2:20, 2:19, 2:25 minutes. They are joint with two satellites likely
affected same way: 91.9 KBCW McAlester, and 95.9 KCSC Woodward.
Probably kept doing this all night like last time; when I spread the
word as a defacto meteor scatter DX test, but then there were nothing
but IDs back-to-back every 34 seconds (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WBCQ check via Maine SDR, July 18 at 1927: TOMBS S7-S9 on
7490 -92 Hz = 7489.908; S7-S9 also on 6160 -113 Hz = 6158.887; S8-S9
on 4790 -27 Hz = 4789.973; zero on 3265 which was also off yesterday;
JBA carrier on 9330, S2 including noise level. Homepage still has
nothing about 4790! Schedule page concerns only 7490, 6160 and 9330.
All times are mislabeled EST instead of EDT, but are correctly 4 hours
behind UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, July 18 at 0614, WTWW-2 on late as happens
unpredictably, Ted interviewing an author about UFOs. Is this
considered part of his ham radio block, not rock music, or just
off-the-wall? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (91.7), July 18 before and after 0500 UT, KALW San Francisco
webcast during `Tangents` eclectic music and ethnic show which is one
of my favorites, host Dore Stein informs that from next week Tangents
will be cut in half, two hours instead of four, 05-07 UT Sun instead
of 03-07. Newish GM is revamping programming with 6 new DJs on
weeknights, 03-07 UT which somehow requires cutting down older shows
on weekends. He plays clips of her justifications and contradicts
them. Feels it is unfair and counterproductive to reduce his hours by
50%. A lot of the KALW schedule contains non-local shows duplicated on
KQED et al. Dore also explains about this in his own newsletter, which
I posted on the WOR iog. Also sent it to the internetradio hcdx group
but it bounced as ``too big`` pending approval. Too bad, since there
is so little traffic on that list anyway. More at
