** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2248 monitoring. Not confirmed
Saturday June 22 at 2300 on WTWW 9475: except for my first 8 words or
so until switched to Scriptures for America Worldwide! I`ve asked Bob
& George if they intend to resume WOR on 9475 now or at any other
time? Bob indicates that this was an error.

** U S A. Re FM DX log of WRVQ 94.5, Greg Hardison replies: ``I
checked the WRVQ entry on Radio-Locator, and sho' 'nuff, it jives out
there as 200 kW! I expected a bit of Corporate-Radio BS, perhaps
counting 100 kW twice, as in H + V modulation. So then checked it on
the FCC FM Query page: same deal, logging in at 200 kW. Apparently it
must pay to have connections, hi hi! And it's no real surprise to hear
a spot mentioning "the Beach". Much of my family's from that part of
the planet, and there is a good amount of commercial-and-leisure
trans-traffic up & down I-64 between Richmond and the Hampton Roads
area; much more so than one sees between Rchmd and D.C., which is only
about forty miles further away. As for the "ad" on the Liberty Univ.
Outlet, remember, the RW extremists are above any mere laws, so if
they are not divinely struck down while airing commercials below 92
MHz, then it must be all good! :^)> :^)>``

A few FM stations, notably in Michigan, were ``grandfathered`` in with
excessive powers. I just went thru all 634 MI stations in WTFDA FMDB,
and found only these super-powers:
93.7 320/320 kW ERP WBCT Grand Rapids
104.3 190/190 kW ERP WOMC Detroit
105.7 265/265 kW ERP WSBW Grand Rapids
And of the 515 VA stations, only one other >100/100 kW ERP:
99.1 190.9/190.9 kW ERP WSLQ Roanoke

I wonder if they acquired over-powered transmitter(s?) and/or greater
antenna gain? But especially how they justified greater coverage than
competitors (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU [and non]. 7260, June 23 at 0625, RV is active JBA. The 40m
band now is crammed with hams for Field Day & Night?! Right now they
are far enough from 7260 not to be a problem: LSB on 7259, 7263.
Normally 40m LSB hams avoid the higher reaches anyway, more and more
below 7250 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. MUF spike to 107 MHz NW of here per DXMAP before 0200 UT
June 23, after a day mostly below 88 since big morning Es opening I
mostly missed; so out to the car for bandscan: nothing much, but 89.5,
an ``open for DX`` frequency except for ACI, has something JBA on it:
I rarely even trace KWGS Tulsa. Seems like ID at 0159, ``This is
CF---`` something and shortly gospelhuxterism mentioning prophecy,
body of Christ, etc. Any clues at WTFDA FM DB? After 0230 it`s
inaccessible, `Bad Gateway`, server overload. So I pull out the final
FM Atlas from 2010y: only 3 stations in western Canada, AB and BC,
none of them with CF-calls. O, WRTH 2024 shows that has not changed
much, nor in SK, MB. Meanwhile DXMAP shows paths between OK and WA,
nexus over WY, grrr.

Next day by 1538 UT June 23, FMDB is back in biz: of the 28 Canadians
on 89.5, the only CF- prefix is in Goose Bay. Is there a marginal
religious 89.5 around here? Yes, 23.5 kW KJCC Carnegie OK which I have
rarely logged; and three further translators in OKC, Elk City, and
Felt at far end of Panhandle. In KS, xltrs in Topeka, Parsons (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY. ``Hi Glenn, thanks for your regular audio reports. Just to
let you know: We are going into summer mode for about 2 months of
time. Our new schedule is as follows:
https://shortwaveradio.de/en/summer-mode-2024

6160 kHz: 15:00 to 22:00 UTC - Monday until Friday
6160 kHz: 14:00 to 22:00 UTC - on Saturday
6160 kHz: 07:00 to 22:00 UTC - Sundays
3975 kHz: 17:00 to 00:00 UTC - daily

So the Monday slot at 08:00 UT has been canceled. Thanks for
cooperation and good DX, Andy (Engineer - Shortwave Radio, Winsen at
the River Aller, Germany)`` (via Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2248 monitoring: one must keep
checking the WRMI skedgrids in case a WOR time be deleted, or added: I
do find a new one for Saturdays 0930 UT on 9455. This is at 285
degrees = WNW for western N America, not too far off our azimuth from
Okee about 315. Since I strive to remain sound asleep at that hour,
ASAP almost 6 hours ahead, I asked the WOR group for someone to
confirm that, if they are already awake at 0930: not a single reply.

285 carries on across the Pacific, aimed right at Honolulu, by
coincidence? and then Majuro, Port Moresby, Kununurra, so I wonder if
there be sufficient reception in Australia or SE Asia. Local times:
Honolulu 2330, Majuro 2130, Port Moresby 1930, Kununurra 1730.

Confirmed UT Saturday June 22 at 0400 on WTWW 5085, VG direct; S9/+10
into NH SDR; S9+20/40 into Missouri SDR. Had been signing off at 0400*
other nights but still extended for WOR. Previous program wasn`t
finished but faded down by 0359 for ID and WOR. As usual, a bit of
music followed at 0429 until chopoff circa 0430* with no formal ID or
s/off.

Confirmed Saturday June 22 at 1440 the 1430 on SW Gold Radio, Germany,
6160.001, S7/S9 into UTwente in broad summersun.

Missed checking Sat June 22 at 1600 on WRN NAm webcast, but very
reliable.

Confirmed Saturday June 22 at 1735 the 1740 on SW Gold Radio, Germany,
6160.001 at S9+10  and 3975.002 at S8/9+10 into UTwente.

Also confirmed from 1941 Saturday June 22 on WA0RCR, 1860 AM, MO,

America webcast and WRMI webcast only. Next:

generous check on a US bank for Summer Solstice from Gerald T.

** U S A. Saturday June 22, I`m not up and checking DXMAP until 1530
UT when I see a huge mess of sporadic E FM DX lines across
central/eastern USA with MUF above 100 MHz. So I hasten to check on
the DX-398 inside:

94.5 at 1534, ad mentioning the beach, ``Q-94`` non ID; RDS shows
SABRINA_, later FEATHER_, i.e. music refs, not ID. So it is:
WRVQ 94.5 RICHMOND VA 200.0 kW 109.0 m 37-24-15 77-18-55 HD Title &
Artist on Q94 CONTEMPORARY HIT RADIO Q-94

If it were merely Q94 the only hit on 94.5 would be Harlingen TX by
searching the Slogan field. So is there a hyphen in the VA one or not?
Stations should be required to utter ``dash`` or ``hyphen`` if that`s
the case. And look at that power, twice the normal 100 kW limit. How
did they pull that off? Richmond is inland, not on a beach.

94.9 at 1535, ad for Lowe? Fibre Internet, City of Roanoke VA PSA:
WSLC-FM 94.9 ROANOKE VA 95.5 kW 598.0 m 37-11-50 80-09-11 949 STAR -
Now Playing Title/Artist COUNTRY STAR COUNTRY 94.9

95.3 at 1537, ads for Colonial Williamsburg, Kia; Virginia Repertory
Theater, Amelia County Fair; ``New Country K-95``:
WKHK 95.3 COLONIAL HEIGHTS VA 47.0 kW 156.0 m 37-26-22 77-26-01 K95!
Title & Artist on New Country K95! COUNTRY K-95

If it were merely K95, the only hit on 95.3 would be Willmar MN by
searching the Slogan field. So is there a hyphen in the VA one or not?
Stations should be required to utter ``dash`` or ``hyphen`` if that`s
the case. Amelia County is west of C.Hts., SW of Richmond.

Then I move to the caradio, but the opening is almost finished:

88.3 at 1550, Liberty University mentioned, and several times, ``The
Journey``, commercial mentioning central Virginia; isn`t this the NCE
sub-band?:
WRVL 88.3 LYNCHBURG VA 28.0 kW 346.0 m 37-11-50 79-21-06 RELIGIOUS
TEACHING THE JOURNEY Liberty University

104.5 at 1605, WTER mentioned, and another station, probably referring
to gospelhuxter net members rather than this frequency, which may only
be normal fringer KZZW Mooreland OK. But WTER is not a valid FM or AM
call anywhere.

Nothing more to 1630 when I have just missed confirming WOR on WRN. At
1635 DXMAP shows the Es nexus has been over SE Missouri (Glenn Hauser,
Enid OK, WOR)
