Thursday, July 08 2021


Please note and spread the word - for those not on a list where my almost-daily all-band but mainly SW log reports appear -- or for those who are but find this a more convenient archive, weekly merged roundups of all these reports in their original form are posted early every UT Thursday via:

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Wed July 7 at 1510 tune-in, LRA36 is
underway, VP S1-S2 into Brasília #2 SDR, but much better S5-S8 into
Pardinho SP, where from 1512 I camp upon someone already exactly tuned
to it in McMinnville, Oregon. Tango in progress; same canned ID at
every break between tunes, 1515, 1519, 1522, the ``Nacional Antártida
Argentina -- la Radio Pública`` one. 1526 YL closing announcement
credits Ministerio de Defensa, so this Base is hardly civilian; also
acknowledges all the other LRAs around Argentina allegedly relaying.
Do they pick it up off this SW frequency or cheat via satellite or
web? Then OM s/off, and 1527-1531* Antártida song. No more mod, but
back to Bsla #2 SDR off-tuned to 15475.0-USB, I can tell the reduced
carrier stays on, JBA fading in and out making tone just less than
1000 Hz, and *still* on when SDR times out after 60 minutes at 1632,
and I`ve had more than enough. Maybe they leave it on to keep the room
warmer? Or electrical fluid is cheap? Hardly, nor maybe the Diesel to
generate it. Often after ``s/off`` they continue with more programming
but not today (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 WOOB jammer survey July 7 at 1346: 13130 Chinese S2-S5;
13020 JBA; 12880 Chinese S2-S5; 12795 Chinese S3-S6; 12500 JBA
carrier; 13530 JBA. I continue to be amazed that certain reporters
keep claiming they are hearing Sound of Hope, blissfully ignorant of
the much more likely jammers; and editors don`t correct/challenge
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. During Es opening hour July 7 at 17-18 UT, on caradio,
see USA, I have to contend with nearby spoilers fading in and out, but
FWIW some log info on them:

99.5, July 7 at 1726, ``Big Country 99.5`` = KXBL Henryetta.

99.3, July 7 at 1727 ``radio special`` food ad; probably 3 kW KLOR-FM
Ponca City.

97.5, July 7 at 1732, sex counseling ad, ziprecruiter.com/radio; 1734
about recount so AZ maybe? but sports news mentions OU [why isn`t it
UO = University of Oklahoma?]; 1735 possibly different station, rather
clear ID as KFOD, but nonesuch even fuzzily rhyming, nor as AM call
translated to FM; must have been merely KMOD Tulsa, tho not sports

104.5, July 7 at 1740, song with audio cutting out. Must be KZZW
Mooreland = Woodward ``market`` if you can call such small towns that.
No one at station paying attention? Woodward-Mooreland has a lot of FM
stations for its size, due to isolation: 16 of them, 10 of which are
full-power. 2010 population of Woodward was 12K; entire county was
only 20K. It`s 136 km = 85 miles from the nearest metropolis, Enid
with more than 4X the population; but 12 FM stations, only 4 of which
are full power and one of those, 96.9 really funxions as an OKC
station (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 7730, July 7 at 0538 UT, WRMI with trace of
JBM on S9+20/30 signal while TOMBS is blasting in on 7570, etc. (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2093 monitoring: did anyone hear the Wed 1030
on WRMI 5850? Confirmed Wed July 7 at 2100:21 on WBCQ 7490 minus 83 Hz
per Maryland SDR = 7489.917, S7-S9. But NOT confirmed at same time on
WRMI 7780 which is NOT on the air! Still off circa 2340; Okeechobee
did not seem to be too close to the Elsa storm track.

Next, and last:
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:

on a US bank, to: Glenn Hauser, Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 USA

One may also contribute via PayPal, not necessarily in US funds,

New WOR 2094 should be ready for download by early UT July 9 and first
SW airings Friday at 0130 on WRMI 5850 & if on air then, 7780 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5010, July 7 at 1116, JBA here and not 5015, presume WRMI
back on non-wrong frequency, as reported by Ivo 23 hours before. Still
no reply from Jeff about this; usually when he does not reply to a
direct inquiry it means there is something negative he would rather
not discuss (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) See also SOUTH CAROLINA [non]

** U S A. 15825, July 7 at 1351, WWCR-1 is Just Barely Modulated, or
to be charitable, very undermodulated. I have no way of quantifying
such judgments. Have to turn volume way up (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Sporadic E patch MUF 94 MHz over New Mexico, so looks
promising for westward DX; on caradio in garage I start at 1707 UT
July 7:

87.75, July 7 at 1707, first thing tuned is Spanish! Slightly better
on 87.7 than 87.9; likely a FrankenFM, which will have to drop dead on
July 13 when everything has to be DTV, with a few exceptions such as
remote Alaska. Two women conversing, first about TicToc; 1712 about
Puerto de Veracruz, so could it be a lingering full-power analog
Mexican TV channel 6? Probably not: is religious plugging a `conexión
de verano con Jesús`` el 11 de julio; 1715 fading in and out. Mentions
guadaluperadio.com and program is `Mujeres de Fe`. Then I`m scanning
upband; by 1728, 87.7 is fading, gone by 1737 and not much more in the
next semihour. Uplooked later in the WTFDA FM Database, only hitfit

RADIO 3.0 kW horiz. only, 0.0 meters HAAT! 34-12-46 118-03-42
1876 km = 1166 st mi city to city per distancefromto.net

94.1, July 7 at 1710, something in English trying to get past 94.3.

93.1, July 7 at 1717 CCI to KS in English, 1718 MontsterMedia.com of
Yuma = https://www.monstermediayuma.com/ so it is no doubt:

only 25.0m HAAT 32-39-06 114-39-04 2E0F`` 1584 km = 984 statute miles.
Also ads for casino, summer splash at San Luis AZ; CCI:

93.1, July 7 at 1720, ``93-1 The Mountain, Valley traffic`` on Las
Vegas Blvd. I bet it`s the one in NV:

``KYMT 93.1 LAS VEGAS NV HD ROCK 93.1 THE MOUNTAIN 23.5 kW H&V 1183.0
m HAAT 35-57-55 115-30-00 18CF 93-1 The Mountain World Class Rock
Adult Hits`` 1545 km = 960 stmi. Site is SW of LV closer to the CA
border where there are a couple of mountains higher than that.

97.3, July 7 at 1722 strong briefly, national ads getroman.com, GEICO,
get a 97.3 app, 1725 sports talk about CBS, probably this:

``KWFN 97.3 SAN DIEGO CA HD SPORTS 97.3 THE FAN 50.0 kW H&V 134.0 m
HAAT 32-43-13 117-04-14 4AA7 97.3 The Fan The FAN, San Diego's Only FM
Sports Station Sports`` It also has a bunch of co-channel boosters
under 100 watts elsewhere in southern California. SD = 1810 km 1024

99.5, July 7 at 1753, ``Real Country`` slogan. No exact hits on that
in WTFDA but Google search on slogan and MHz leads to KXPL Las Cruces
NM whose main brand is Zia Country; but that`s a bit too close, 934 km
= 580 stmi; and to KHAZ Hays KS, more likely fringe scatter signal,
304 km = 189 stmi. Some others seem Okie spoilers, q.v. (Glenn Hauser,
Enid OK, WOR)

** CHINA. 13640, July 6 at 2210 talk in Japanese, S1-S6, but not NHK:
soon ID as ``Kochirawa Pekin Hoso`` = CRI via Jinhua 831 site more or
less USward far beyond (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, July 6 at 0620, RHC English with big humbuzz atop
English; 6100 undermodulated; 6165, 6000, 5040 all off. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140 & 11760, July 6 at 1421, no signals from these RHCs;
9710 music poor, and 9535 JBA carrier, at least on. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KASHMIR [non]. 15170, July 6 at 1500, ``Kashmir Civitas`` ID in
passing shortly after opening in presumed Urdu via Romania; another
weekly Tuesday clandestine, S9+15 into UTwente. BTW, Civitas is
pronounced Sivitas, not Kivitas as in klassical Latin; but what has
any Latin to do with this? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 15770, July 7 at 0138, indeed this WRMI on
extended hours, poor but // 7570 with TOMBS (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 3215, July 7 at 0251, WWCR-1 at S9+10/20 of
dead air from dead Stair; 0317 in storm noise level I think I detect a
trace of JBM.

3265.1+ meanwhile, TOMBS via WBCQ circa 0300 is a JBA off-frequency
carrier, fortunately totally unusable (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2093 monitoring: just missed confirming new
WRMI time, July 6 Tuesday 1330 on 15770, remembering it at 1400. Did
anyone hear it? Next:
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW

** U S A. 9955, Tue July 6 at 2218, WRMI with Radio Emma Toc, World
Service, that strange quasi-DX programme monthly from Britain; bits
about R. Caroline, and Good Morning Vietnam. Show is going on hiatus
for a while after this one, he says (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5010, July 7 at 0139, WRMI-14 poor here in noise, not 5015,
altho Ivo Ivanov found it on ``wrong`` 5015 in the July 6 morning at
1210 & 1230 via Boca Ratón SDR. Must check that July 7 in the 11-14 UT
span. Have asked Jeff about it but no reply yet (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR) See also SOUTH CAROLINA [non]

** U S A. 4980, July 7 at 0140, WRMI-4 with squeal on USB not LSB of
my R75, but is it transmitted or receiver artifact? Recheck at 0357 on
Key West SDR, no squeal (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7505, July 7 at 0142, WRNO is back on after missing last
night; whew (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5830, July 7 at 0144, WTWW-1 carrier is cutting on and off
the air about once per second but not exactly, making the PPPP
modulation unusable, tsk2. Still so past 0200+; hey Ted, haven`t you
noticed something`s slightly wrong? Don`t you even listen raptly to
your benefactor? Recheck at 0219, now carrier stays on.

5085 meanwhile, WTWW-2, July 7 at 0145, carrier still jittery but
nowhere near as bad as 5830; yet obviously defective (Glenn Hauser,

So far you are the only report I have received. I am actually away
from the local area (in Maine myself) and was unable to copy it. I
think conditions haven't been ideal for DX unfortunately. If the
station is still around in the fall, hopefully there will be an
October event with a finale on Halloween. Duke, kc2dux`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 106.5, July 6 at 1753 UT, Radio Lobo ID in Spanish,
following ``Jambalaya`` song in English! On caradio near artesian well
NNW of Enid circa Great Salt Plains. It`s KYQQ, 100 kW in Arkánsas
City KS, not an obvious SS area, but suspect rimshotting into Wichita.
Inside Enid obscured by local on 106.3. AM bandscanning out of the
question with heavy storm noise, must be from KS not bright and clear
OK. At least can tell no local 530 or 1610 TIS (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CANADA [non]. 7488.871, July 2 at 0200, ``Canada D`Eh`` special by
Uncle Bill and Fred Waterer on WBCQ, a fun show of comedy and tunes; I
listen first on the `7490` webcast but it craps out at 0217 so I
hasten to Area 51 webcast, but it`s some other music! The special was
supposed to be on both 7490 & 6160. Then I bring up the Maryland SDR
to find that 6160 is not even on the air, but it`s getting 7490. A few
minutes later I can go back to the 7490 webcast (Glenn Hauser, OK,

The 7490 webcast crapped out again about 0253, but I still had the
NA5B remote running. 73, Glenn PS: I also plugged it a few minutes
before on the first WOR broadcast at 0130``

** INTERNATIONAL WATERS [and non]. No activity on ``Hurricane Watch
Net`` frequencies of 14325-USB and 7268-LSB, July 6 at 0126 and
earlier. BTW, there is a hurricane across Cuba toward Florida (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6974.9-AM, July 6 at 0110, JBA pirate music,
presumed usual Nowhere Radio on this exact frequency. As here:

6950-USB, July 6 at 0111, pirate music S6 vs storm crashes peaking S9.
Many reports here as Radio Genix as early as 2028 UT July 5:
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. Nearby NDB check July 6 at 0130 UT: confirmed
ON: 515 PN Ponca City, 350 RG OKC, 341 EI Enid, 332 IC Wichita KS. I
am getting these much better S/N on N/S shortwire than on E/W
Wellbrook which is supposed to be lower-noise. Still off: 255 SW
Stillwater (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Monday July 5 at 2200, REE intro by Justin Coe does
not mention a mailbag segment coming up, but there was one reported 3
weeks ago; irregular? VG into Maryland SDR. BTW, Alison Hughes was
said to have taken early retirement (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 395-MCW kHz, July 6 at 0128 UT, maybe my line noise is
abating a bit altho I have not heard from OG&E; two 25-watt Kansas
NDBs colliding, but with slightly different periods almost alternating
for one iteration: CA in Newton/Harvs to the north, and ULS Ulysses to
the NW. Classaxe.com shows respective periods are 6.27 and 7.41

Harvs is a strange name, and not even in my large scale Rand McNally
atlas, but distancefromto.net locates it not near Newton at all, but
NW of Lyons and ENE of Great Bend. From there it is 174 miles to
Ulysses in the SW corner (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** U S A. 28206.3-CW, July 6 at 0054 UT, VVV DE KM4NBB/B. Some more CW
followed I did not copy, and I thought it was KM4NB/B, missing a B,
and about 28206.1, but listed as such by WJ5O at qsl.net:

September 2020`` - and his page at QRZ.com says:

There was also some Spanish phone USB QRM this low in the 10m band.

More strikeouts seeking sporadic E FM DX 88+ MHz, but MUF at least up

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2093 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
July 4 from 2000:44 UT on IRRS via Italia AM, 918 kHz, Villa Estense,
good but French?Kriyol? occasional QRM, perhaps overload in Noale

Also confirmed Sun July 4 at 2200 on Area 51 via WBCQ 6160 minus 100
Hz = 6159.900 kHz, per Maryland remote in SAM mode, S7-S9. (The other
WBCQ with `UBMP` on 7490 minus 102 Hz = 7488.898 kHz.)

Also confirmed Sun July 4 at 2230 on WRMI 9955, S9 over Cuban pulse
jamming into Maryland SDR; S1-S2 into Brasília #2 SDR, even tho it`s
aimed thataway.

Also confirmed UT Monday July 5 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, VG direct.

Also confirmed UT Mon July 5 at 0130 on WRN webcast to N America.

** U S A. 9395, July 5 at 0205 tune-in to WRMI for Texas R SW 4th of

illegible notes; 0213 Ray Charles: America the Beautiful; 0222 QSL
offer in OM voice and intro next tune, Springsteen: Born in the USA
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330, July 6 at 0124 still no signal from 500 kW WLCR via
WBCQ, and I guess there will not be for a while. Update on this via
Mike Terry: ``[WOR] WBCQ "Big Tube" a write-off --- Allan Weiner
@AllanWBCQ · 4h Trials and tribulations. Searching for a TH576 tube,
or equivalent, to get the mighty 9330 back on the air. Classic WBCQ

The big tube went to air while on the air. All burnt up and not
rebuildable. Sad $ 200k loss. (Twitter 5 July 2021)``

Well, isn`t the thing insured or under warranty? Anyhow, out of pocket
of the wacko Egyptian billionaire (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1360, UT Mon July 5 at 0022, I`m tuned to the KiwiSDR in
Philadelphia for the publicized 4th of July special DX test from WNJC,
Washington Twp - of several in NJ, the one near Camden and hence
Philly. I`m hearing a tone at S5-S6; 0023 singing jingle ID ``WNJC
13-60``; Star-Spangled Banner in Jimi Hendrix style, but not quite?
Mixing in a few notes of Taps; then VVV VVV VVV DE WNJC in Morse code
- not CW but tones on AM carrier. WNJC calls repeated over and over, I
lost count after eleven, maybe for a minute; 0028.5 sweep tones

I had no chance of getting it direct, but wanted to hear and confirm
what was going out. Despite proximity, hardly a local-quality signal,
altho it was dominant on frequency. Night and day coverage maps at
radio-locator.com imply the low-power night pattern axually has a
better lobe into Phila. than the higher-power day pattern. Strangely
enough, 24 hours later, I have seen zero reports of this on the NRC or
IRCA lists; maybe I should tell them that at least I for one heard it,
albeit remotely (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5085, July 6 at 0117, WTWW-2 with Ted saying he`s about to
play a 4th of July special of patriotic American music, recorded last
night, which failed to air ``because a cow stepped on a cable``. Very
distorted modulation tho and I shan`t listen. The carrier is also
jittering slightly, checked with BFO (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 7505, July 6 at 0122, WRNO is AWOL again. Usually was quite
strong lately when active (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5179-USB, July 6 at 0119, 2-way in colloquial Spanish,
one quite strong S7-S9 with ``engine noise``, mentioning quantities of
something measured in ``kilos``; which is nonsensical; kilowatts,
kilojoules, kilogallons, kilograms, kilomiles?? (Glenn Hauser, OK,

UNIDENTIFIED. 24000-27000 kHz, July 6 at 0104-0107, complete bandscan
for anything interesting as sporadic E is bouncing in CB 27+ MHz and
some 28+ MHz beacons. Still no broadcast auxiliaries, but some 2-way:
26315.1-AM, July 6 at 0104, contact maybe offset on 26314.7-AM.
26565.3-AM, July 6 at 0105, very strong signal just as it goes off
26583.4-AM, July 6 at 0106, Spanish (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 515-MCW kHz, July 4 at 0638 UT, NDB PN, Ponca City
reconfirmed still on, JBA vs HNL (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. The virus of dead Brother Scare is spreading
even worse than during his lifetime. Artie Bigley, OH, reports July 2:
``Glenn, Brother Stair on KXEL 1540 AM now! As of Monday, or so, I'm
now hearing Brother Stair at 2:00 AM CDT on KXEL radio. He is on from
2-3 AM CDT. I've listened to the nighttime talk show that normally
airs at that time but it's now preempted by Brother Stair. Called the
station today and they told me that his organization recently brought
that one-hour time slot and he has been on the station before. I guess
that was over ten years ago. So, his organization must have more money
to burn on airtime on various stations is my point. As you mention on
WOR yesterday he is buying more time on WBCQ these days.

I`ve also noted these expansions; where comes from all that money?! BS
ranting is unlistenable by anyone with half a brain, and blasting that
crap over more and more SW frequencies is not going to change that.
How ashamed SW stations must secretly be, allowing themselves to
depend more and more upon him.

4980, July 4 at 0620, WRMI indeed still on with squealy TOMBS. 5800 at
0628 also, S9+10/20 undermodulated. 9955 at 0637 also JBA carrier
presumably same as on new skedgrid overnights. And 9955 definitely
TOMBS at 1605 Sunday July 4, so mid-day has been added. But that`s not

6159.901, July 4 at 0621, S9+10, WBCQ with TOMBS, this transmitter
also expanded, overnight? Also have a JBA carrier on 3265.147, must be
same as previously measured offset+plus. No 7490 or 9330 tho. WBCQ
program sked still shows no expansion of 6160 nor any 3265 at all!

9265V, July 4 at 0635, JBA S9 = hi local line noise level, must be
WINB, normally never on at this hour, bet it`s TOMBS too! Program sked
not updated since June 6. However, EiBi shows 9265 in DRM at 0700-1100
M-F only, but this is Sunday.

BUT TOM website HAS been updated for July with all this new stuff:


Including WINB 9265 at 0400-0700 daily; WBCQ 3265 24/7! 6160 24/7
except for the existing Area 51/61 blox. 7490 from 1600 daily but not
overnight. Also lots of time via Bulgaria, WWCR, and of course WRMI,
on 13 frequencies, probably partially via every single transmitter.
Also expansion on AM/FM stations including KXEL at 06-08 UT daily

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2093 monitoring: confirmed Saturday
July 3 at 1800:36 on IRRS via Romania 7290, VG via UTwente, and also
on Italia AM, 918 kHz, via nearby Noale SDR steady S9+17, running 3
seconds ahead of 7290 as via two different SDRs. Earlier, 7290 from
1755 tune-in with hum and warble on plus side only; 1759:46 JIP Aida
theme cut on in progress as usual, quick IRRS ID, rather long pause
before WOR start. Timings compared to RWM 9996-CW also via UTwente.

BTW, EI Enid is on 341 kHz, not 342 as I misspoke on WOR 2093.

WOR also confirmed from 1942 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, MO via nearby SDR.

Also confirmed at NEW time of 2000 Saturday July 3 on WRMI 15770, good
direct at this hour, even tho off the side.

Also confirmed ending at 0341.5 UT Sunday July 4 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM
direct, sufficient but storm noisy; so started early circa 0312. Next:

2000 UT Sunday IRRS 918-Italy

** U S A. 5085, UT Sun July 4 at 0028, WTWW-2 with `TOUTA` almost on
time, including really frantic version of William Tell Overture; take
that, AAAWWW! But by then I`m on the stereo webcast, non-distorted.
Ends right at 0100 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9330, still AWOL WLCR via WBCQ. Dave Zantow got the reason:
``Alan Weiner via Twitter (July 4, approx. 1330 UT) --- "9330 the
worlds Superstation off the air. The power amplifier tube cracked in
half!!! Never saw that one before. Manufacturing defect we think as
the big PA tubes last up to decades. Searching for a spare now. TH576
made by Thales in France. Very disappointed. Cost new $ 100k." Dave

** U S A. 1360, July 4 at 0345-0355 UT, trying to hear WNJC,
Washington Twp, the one near Camden NJ, via closest KiwiSDRs, in
preparation for July 4th DX test at 00-10 UT, but not getting anything
identifiable via Philadelphia, Central NJ to the north, nor Fair Hill,
Maryland to the south; as I have little hope of getting it direct
despite nightly `DX tests` from 0400 in June and early July. The July
4 special might have been on tonight = UT July 4 but probably really
UT July 5, they did not make explicitly clear (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** U S A. 92.9, July 4 at 1721 UT, ``Eagle 92.9`` IDs at least thrice,
also mentions iHeart, vs considerable CCI. I`m checking for Es on the
caradio parked in the garage following 90+ MHz MUFs on DXMAPs. This is
the only unusual signal found on 87-98 MHz. WTFDA database shows only
two possibilities:

247.0 m HAAT 40-31-06 96-46-07 42D3 THE EAGLE Title & Artist Classic

WEGX 92.9 DILLON SC COUNTRY EAGLE 92.9 100.0 kW ERP H&V 492.9 m HAAT
34-22-04 79-19-21 5FEB TODAY'S COUNTRY WEGX EAGLE 92.9 - Country

Unfortunately did not hear it long enough to tell whether country or
classic rock. Slogan did not start with ``The`` so that leans to SC,
which is also a likely distance for sporadic E, 1049 miles. Beatrice
however might have ``skipped`` in via tropo scatter, 275 miles, too
close for Es.

Such fringe stations mostly in KS & OK are the bane of my FM DXing, as
they can fade in and out completely much like Es. Checking
Radio-locator next, both have iHeart oonnexions, but neither directly
owned, both with streaming via iHeart. It looks like KTGL is less
iHearty, and I am leading toward WEGX as the more likely.

Another fruitless session at 1920-1935. Mostly the highest MUF patches
are a little too close or a little too far to have any DX effect to
here (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
