Glenn Hauser logs May +5, 2021  View Printable Version 
Wednesday, May 05 2021

Logs
** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Wed May 5 at 1513, LRA36 is only S2-S3
into Brasília #2 KiwiSDR, signature ``Antártida`` song at tune-in,
LRA36 ID, then mostly music past 1527; still on at 1555 but off before
1700 when I check again after Eritrea [non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** BOTSWANA. 17530, May 5 at 1533, pop song in English, S9+10/20 into
UTwente. It`s VOA relay this hour only; 1535 DJ urges COVID measures
such as masking, back to more song, Bieber, on `Border Crossings`,
which hardly presents anything exotic as the name might imply. Aoki
shows this transmission is *jammed lest any oppressed ESL Chinese pick
it up, but no jamming audible now. So strong I think I was hearing
trace of its music bleeding/crossmodding onto 17545, see ERITREA
[non] (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [non]. 15700, May 5 at 1502 & 1543 chex, CRI Plus English
relay via CUBA is AWOL for at least second day: canceled, or another
outage? Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, May 5 at 0629, RHC English has the humbuzz on here
again ex-6100, which is off along with 6000; while 6165 remains on in
the clear. You never know what combo of 5 possible channels will be
running after 0600. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** ERITREA [non]. 17544.90910v, another Wednesday, May 5 at 1527 so
I`m listening for Bayto Yaikl, the Wed & Sat only clandestine brokered
by RMI via Issoudun, FRANCE. Once again there is a JBA signal via
UTwente, S6 = noise level on adjacent channel, but enough for its
Synch to look onto it precisely as above. No audio from it, but traces
of music from somewhere which at 1533 I decide is bleed/crossmod from
the VOA bigsig on 17530, with Border Crossings via BOTSWANA, q.v.

17545v itself is far too weak to identify directly, but was the always
off-frequency B.Y. in the B-season. WRMI skedgrid at the very bottom
still shows 17545, not updated for A-season. I`m alert for when it go
off, which happens at 1558:49* including any internet delay; can ISS
still be running that transmission with nothing in it??

Latest HFCC of May 4 still shows:
17545 1530 1600 48 ISS 250 120 0 227 1234567 280321 301021 D 17400 Mul
F RMI TDF 13156 BYUSA

But also:
11760 1630 1700 48 ISS 250 125 0 216 36 280321 301021 D 8500 Mul F RMI
TDF 14044 NEW

Ivo Ivanov has been reporting that 11760 an hour later on Wed & Sat is
replacement for 17545, even tho 11760 entry does not include ``BYUSA``
and the 17545 was never 7 days a week.

11760.000 or 11759.999, says UTwente Synch: Rather than LRA36, after
1630 May 5 I keep listening to 11760, S5-S7 into UTwente, which
certainly seems like Bayto Yaikl, but I *never* can hear those words
mentioned. Opening has horrible self-imposed echo but only briefly.
Presumably in Tigrinya, but occasional English terms I can copy: kHz,
Amerika, World Press Freedom Day, Amnesty International, PBS
Frontline, investigative reporting. Continues all-talk with Frontline
etc. mentioned again at 1646. 1647 finally a bit of Horn-of-Africa
music; 1655 mentions Hitler, Hirohito; 1656 HOA music; 1656.5 closing
announcement in *Arabic* including meter-band, kHz, and off at 1659*
At PBS website I cannot find a Frontline episode about Eritrea (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.9+, May 5 at 0622, VON with big OC, then JBM chant
and drumusic. Tuned by at 0619, it was NOT on (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 35, May 5 at 1514 UT, a little tropo enhancement
produces one BAD signal normally invisible, on this channel only;
could be full power in Wichita KS, low power in Woodward or Concho OK.
Hepburn tropo map points toward the latter, the native station near
OKC I`ve seen before, K35MV-D, 15 kW. I continue to wonder about its
penetration into the OKC market; must it be carried on any cable
channel? Soon fades out (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 7730, May 5 at 0618, another TOMBS
transmission via WRMI bites the dust. Had been the last of three 7 MHz
frequencies to retain the dead gasbag overnight; but still shows on
the WRMI skedgrid as Overcomer 01-08, so absence could be temporary.
Still rampant on 5850 & 5950 --- and 5890 WWCR --- with JBA signals on
9395 & 9455, the lower still sked with him too. WRMI skeds are never
uptodate, still dated April 2, and still showing 7570 & 7780 overnight
TOMBS which were really dropped weeks ago (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2084 monitoring; can anyone confirm the Wed
May 5 at 1030 on WRMI 5850? Next:
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
2200 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955 [jammed?] to SSE
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

Our non-commercial broadcasts and website depend on voluntary support:
thanks this week to Ron Howard, Monterey, California, in memory of
Noel Green, for a check to Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702,
and Ron says, ``Appreciate all the wonderful things you do for our
hobby!``

One may also contribute via PayPal, not necessarily in US funds, to
woradio at yahoo.com (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. NPR Turns 50 --- 8 minutes from CBS Sunday Morning May 2
https://www.cbsnews.com/video/npr-turns-50/

Rest of 63+ minute commercial-free program also highly recommended:
https://www.cbsnews.com/video/sunday-morning-full-episode-5-2-2021/
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU [and non]. 11835, Wed May 5 at 0629, R. Vanuatu in music
with a low-audible-heterodyne, LAH, i.e. the A-21 season CCI expected
from CNR2, Xianyang 59 site, China, so one or both of them must be
slightly off-frequency. I have not yet tried to measure RV`s 3rd
harmonic when it`s solo. On contrary, Aoki/NDXC shows CNR2 is in a
siesta break after 0600 on Day 4 only = Wednesday = today; shouldn`t
that be Day 3 = Tuesday? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 13530, May 5 at 1457 open carrier over CODAR, S9 with
some fades to S6, off by 1501 recheck. Strong and steady enough to be
intracontinental, but way outside a broadcast band, maybe ute? Or
extracontinental CNR1 *jammer since 13530 is a Sound of Hope frequency
until 1550 per Aoki (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Glenn Hauser logs May 3-4-5, 2021  View Printable Version 
Wednesday, May 05 2021

Logs
** CHINA. 15775, May 5 at 0138, not much happening on 19m now but a
JBA carrier here. Aoki shows nothing but Sound of Hope at 2130-1600,
so it`s likely CNR1 *jamming (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) see also EAST
TURKISTAN

** CUBA. 15700, May 4 at 1504, CRI English relay is absent, nor on
ex-11880 either; propagation OK with RHC on 15140. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15140, May 4 at 19-20, missed checking whether RHC English
were back here from 15370 yesterday, and whether still only one hour
in the afternoon; did anybody notice? I did check May 4 at 2315 and
until 2357.8* with that English hour on 11880, while after 2200 was
still in French (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA? 5085, May 5 at 0018, Cuban-style weak pulse jamming centred
here before WTWW is on, now via Bonaire SDR, as heard before here when
WTWW was on. Possibly some kind of ute instead (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** CUBA. 4747 & 4783 approx., May 5 at 0035, scratchy spurblobs
obviously out of R. Progreso which has just come on 4765, into Bonaire
SDR just like I hear them direct, plus/minus 17-18 kHz. I can`t think
of anyone else who has ever reported these. No one else cares about
documenting all the crap Cuba defecates onto our SW bands? Something`s
always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11850, May 5 at 0135, RHC is S9+10/20 but suptorted, flanked
by the JBA carrier spurs on 11840 & 11860. Something`s always wrong at
RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) see also EAST TURKISTAN [and non]

** EAST TURKISTAN [and non]. 9710, RHCuba has stuck to this new
frequency, which when it first appeared April 27, I pointed out
immediately would conflict with CRI to Latin America at 00-03 UT.

Now at 0034 May 5, into Bonaire SDR, continuous Chinese music is atop
RHC in Spanish, during their Portuguese hour which for years now has
been filled with music only on all its transmissions including 00-01.
Meanwhile RHC`s exes, 9650 and 9640 are both empty! Way to go,
frequency manager Arnie!

At 0054 CRI does announce the Portuguese schedule in Brazuguese
accent, including this hour, also on 6100. For 2300 I didn`t hear him
mention 13650 which is the Cuban relay. After that, dead air or off
until 0100 CRI IS, theme, Chinese and Spanish IDs.

From the land of ChiCom imperialist genocide against Uyghurs and other
Moslems, Kashgar site is 500 kW at 269 degrees for Portuguese,
shifting to 294 for Spanish, i.e. centrally aimed first at Rio de
Janeiro, then from Belém across mid-Brasil where the first SS country
hit directly is Bolivia, but should be good for neighbors Perú,
Paraguay, northern Argentina as well; CubaRM permitting, Commies vs
Commies!

BTW, I would seldom quote National Review, but David Cole sends this
disturbing report from the May 17 [sic] issue which I have retitled:
Uyghur families pay a ChiCom imperialist price for RFA journalism

https://www.nationalreview.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/xml_20210517_Nordlinger.html

WRTH 2021 page 504 shows RFA has only two Uyghur hours per day, 01-02
& 16-17 UT, mostly via Kuwait on a different frequency each day of
week, also some via Saipan, Tinian, Dushanbe.

But for A-21 Bulgarian DX Blog shows:
0100-0200 on 9780 KWT 250 kW / 046 deg to CeAs Uyghur
0100-0200 on 9800 BIB 100 kW / 063 deg to CeAs Uyghur
0100-0200 on 11640 KWT 250 kW / 054 deg to CeAs Uyghur
0100-0200 on 11790 KWT 250 kW / 046 deg to CeAs Uyghur

1600-1700 on 9355 DB 200 kW / 060 deg to CeAs Uyghur
1600-1700 on 9480 KWT 250 kW / 046 deg to CeAs Uyghur
1600-1700 on 11675 TIN 250 kW / 305 deg to CeAs Uyghur
1600-1700 on 15700 BIB 100 kW / 075 deg to CeAs Uyghur
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY [and non]. I did manage to hear all the UBMP episode of
throat-singing, tnx to the unpublicized semi-repeat Mon May 3 at
2300-2330 on WBCQ 7490v webcast; and Tuesday May 4 at 2000-2100 on
Channel 292, 6070 with a VG signal into UTwente; which followed his
other show, FTIOM until 2000 and off the air at 2100*. BTW, UB says
next week`s FTIOM will be all-music, no interviews; on WBCQ UT Tue May
11 at 0000-0100 on WBCQ 7490v (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. 7162-LSB, May 4 at 0605, new frequency for ZL4RMF,
ex-7168 last night, Dunedin, in contact with OA4DPQ, unheard here
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PERU. 4775.037, May 5 at 0030, music from R. Tarma is S6-S7 into
Bonaire SDR, on signature offset frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PERU. 4752.477v, May 5 at 0033, music, talk from R. Huanta 2000,
also S6-S7 into Bonaire SDR but sounds weaker than Tarma. Both OAs
luck out escaping the Progreso, CUBA, q.v. spurs out of 4765 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** RUSSIA. 4996-CW, May 4 at 0022, binary pulses at S4-S5, via Bonaire
SDR. Got to be the 10 kW timesignal station in Taldom near Moskva,
despite the distance, doing as well as WWV into Bonaire SDR. Yes,
there are pips on the minute at 0023, 0024, 0025, 0026. Also checked
9996, no signal there. WRTH does not show any `program sked`; it would
be very helpful to know at least when they ID. IIRC it`s at :39 and
:09. Recheck at 0107 in constant tone/dash, 0108 dead air, and yes,
0109 RWM ID over and over in CW. 0217 rerecheck, second pips
occasionally doubled (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 9955, May 4 at 1506, TOMBS is on WRMI again
today // stronger 9395 and weaker 9455. Skedgrids now claim it`s daily
at 1430-1600; M-F from 1400; among many other deadly hours (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2084 monitoring; Next:
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
2200 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955 [jammed?] to SSE

** VENEZUELA. 6205.028, May 5 at 0015, ROCV with tropical music, S5-S7
into Bonaire KiwiSDR. For one day last week it shifted to 6216,
reported by Manuel Mendez (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, May 5 at 0215: 855
is the only detected stepping thru every 9-kHz, vs considerable local
and storm noise levels. Likely Spain RNE1 with 10 synchros totaling
445 kW, headed by one 300; altho Romania has a single 400 too (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 5040.8, May 5 at 0020, RHC has a het on the plus side as
heard by Bonaire SDR; no known such broadcasters. India should be
about to open but not so off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

Tuesday, May 04 2021

Logs
** COLOMBIA. 4940, May 3 at 0603, song at S9, stronger than usual
direct, often JBA, the still fuzzy outlet which runs all night and
presumably all day with good signals into Bonaire remote, from Maicao
for Venezuela, known as La Montaña, or Montana, or Fuerza de Paz as
the ministry website programming source succeeding the 5910 & 6010
stations (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6165, May 3 at 0559, RHC English is off; 6060 and 6000 and
5040 are also off now, so the final English hour or fraxion gets only
one frequency and a bad one: 6100 is S9+30 with humbuzz like used to
be on 6060, likely same transmitter moved. Something`s always wrong at
RHC.

Note: Richard Langley heard RHC say on UT May 2 that their English
broadcasts are now two hours long instead of just one repeating over
and over in our evenings, perhaps due to their 60th anniversary, but a
permanent change? Years ago they were more than one hour long. But
what about the single-hour blox at 1900 & 2300? Expanded plus or
minus? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 15370, May 3 at 1948, RHC 1900 English is here, S9+10/20 but
undermodulated, while scheduled 15140 is absent. Maybe make-do while
the other transmitter be down? You never know what RHC will do next.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KOREA NORTH. 11710, May 3 after 0600, stilted French from VOK now
propagating fairly; one wonders if their announcers had book-larnin`
only. Aoki/NDXC does not show this broadcast, but WRTH B-20 sked
showed French at 06-07 on 11735, 13760 and 15180 for Latin America,
even tho it`s the middle of the night in Guiana French and the
Windward & Leeward Islands! BTW, Martinique is Windward, Guadeloupe is
Leeward.

EiBi shows instead CRI in Mandarin to SE Asia this hour on 11710, but
no sign of that here. The Bulgarian DX Blog sked for A-21 also shows
those three for VOK and not 11710. Same for Arnulf Piontek, Berlin,
who seems to have inside sources at VOK. So we have NEWS about a rare
change for VOK! Also a weak signal on 11680, which would be domestic
program (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MALI. 15125, May 3 at 1705, CRI scheduled in Swahili via Bamako,
but doesn`t sound much like Swahili, maybe corrupted by Chinese
accent. // 13645 listed is OFF. And so is 15125 at 1712*-*1722; all
talk instead of music I was seeking (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND [and non]. 7168-LSB, May 3 at 0627, ZL4RMF, Dunedin,
audible but weaker than contact KN6GPR who says he visited Dunedin
last year but can`t remember how to pronounce it. Hint: it does not
refer to noisy sand.

ZL4RMF: Ron Falconer. See his antennas on a hilltop:
https://www.qrz.com/lookup/zl4rmf

KN6GPR: Lynden L Williams, Tehachapi, CA 93561-5431 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** NIGERIA. 7254.9+, May 3 at 0558, VON IS at S9+10/20, sporadically
active here again when it blasts into N America, presumably about to
start Hausa hour (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2084 monitoring: Re the Sat May 1
WOR scheduled on WRMI 15770 at 1300: ``as often, missed due to
sleeping the May 1 Sat 1300 on WRMI 15770, so hope to see some
confirmation of it later.``

``Hi Glenn, I was listening to this, it came on at 1300 but went off
after about a minute or so and it was then WRMI fill in music and
jingles till 1330 when SW Radiogram took over. Looked like some sort
of computer hitch which switched to the backup. Alan Gale``, UK, ptsw
iog

Since the UT Fri 0130 was replaced by something else, this means that
there were no airings of WOR on WRMI until Sunday 2300, three days
after produxion!

More encouragement to listen online, as a podcast ASAP, altho I try to
hold shortwave primary. Furthermore there are now no scheduled SWBCs
after Sunday night = early UT Monday --- until Wednesday:

Bibling, then old BS hystairical, // stronger 9395. Sometimes 9955
stays on after 1430 for this, sometimes not (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. My first sporadic E FM DX opening of the season/year, May 2,
all times UT!! interrupts my listening to `Feminine Fusion` at
2105-2205 on 90.1 KUCO, on the DX-390. Normally the only weaker QRM is
KHCC Radio Kansas, Hutchinson, but:

2140, 90.1, ``South Carolina Public Radio``, could be program credit
on some other P.R. station; but has Es fading. With KUCO nulled as
much as possible I am also getting KHCC vs this one, KHCC with
`Thistle & Shamrock` which comes from NC, not SC. Also an NPR news
break which would not be during T&S. It so happens there are two SCPRs
on 90.1, Greenville in the NW corner and Conway in the E corner, as
researched later in the WTFDA FM Database, inserting those listings
with each possible log:

WHMC-FM 90.1 CONWAY SC NEWS/TALK SOUTH CAROLINA PUBLIC RADIO 63.0

hope the MUF is going above 92 and start hunting on the DX-398 I also
have at hand, with whip antenna only constantly being manipulated.
There are lots of OK & KS fringe stations on ``open`` channels which
have to be recognized, minimized or avoided.

As FM Es continues during the next hour, 22-23 UT, I also have to miss
`Uncle Bill`s Melting Pot` on WBCQ with Mongolian throat-singing which
I was really looking forward to; and there is no way to hear it later
--- except the first half repeat Monday at 2300-2330.

2146: 92.1, C&W music, ID as ``--- 92``, Es fading; 2159 almost time
for ID when a YL gospel huxter overrides, but I do get a partial ID of
W,P,H at 2200, and Fox ``news``. 2202 the g.h. QRMer says it`s still
April as she starts preaching about Fools, especially males you may be
married to. The C&W one is certainly:

WPEH-FM 92.1 LOUISVILLE GA COUNTRY THE PEACH 6.0 91.0 33-00-48
82-23-33 // WPEH-1420 [908 mi]
as it`s the only 92.1 country in SC or GA. What about a nearby g.h.?
Maybe this, the only religious teaching in English on 92.1 in GA:

WHHR 92.1 VIENNA GA RELIGIOUS TEACHING FREEDOM RADIO FM 5.1 106.0
32-09-16 83-47-55 [856 mi]

2203: 93.1, YL in London sends her love; rocker? Have to watch out for
Pratt KS semi. Not the ESPN one below.

2205: 92.7, strong rock, soon fades. Only two full power in GA:

WKKZ 92.7 DUBLIN GA HOT AC 92.7 WKKZ 50.0 127.0 32-31-21 82-54-00
WSSI 92.7 DARIEN GA CLASSIC HITS 92.7 SSI 10.0 123.0 31-11-40 81-29-30
[892, 1003 mi]

2209: 90.3, finally one with RDS, which is pretty finicky even with
strong signals many of which do not employ it. The thing is, I get a
readout lock only when tuned to 90.2! between two Okies: UNIVERSITY /
SAVANNAH / WHCJ, and a jazz DJ:

WHCJ 90.3 SAVANNAH GA VARIETY THE VOICE OF SAVANNAH STATE UNIVERSITY
6.0 68.0 32-01-28 81-03-23 6761 WHCJ Savannah State University WHCJ
Savannah State University No Program Type or Undefined [1003 mi]

2212: 93.1, plug ESPN podcasts, ESPN Radio, ESPN plus, ESPN daily. I
think it may be an ESPN affiliate. 2228: sports talk again with hum:

WWKM 93.1 ROCHELLE GA SPORTS MIDDLE GEORGIA'S ESPN 4.7 81.0 31-56-54
83-26-02 // WWKM 93.1, WXKO-1150 // W226BZ 103.1 [879 mi]

WWKM also has a co-channel translator BTW:

W226BZ WXKO 1150 93.1 MACON GA SPORTS MIDDLE GEORGIA`S ESPN 0.0 0.12
0.0 206.0 32-45-13 83-33-46 // WWKM 93.1, WXKO-1150 // W226BZ 103.1
[all the others in this report except 101.5 have same H & V kW,
meters, so duplications removed]

2217: 93.1, vs WWKM: ``E-93 FM.com`` promo, and for plasma; 2218 ``AT
40`` mentions, as in American Top-40 program:

WEAS-FM 93.1 SPRINGFIELD GA URBAN CONTEMPORARY E-93 96.64 299.0
32-02-45 81-20-27 5F4A WEAS Song / Artist Rhythm and Blues [983
mi]

2219: 93.3, ``The Joy FM``, so gospel, fade to C&W, Okie?

WVFJ-FM 93.3 GREENVILLE GA CONTEMPORARY CHRISTIAN THE JOY FM NETWORK
38.0 491.0 33-05-10 84-46-10 8CA7 [782 mi]

2231: 93.7, music occasionally overrides KSPI Stillwater OK which is
in a live silly baseball game. With GA still the PTA, most likely
this, the only full power 93.7 rocker:
WPEZ 93.7 JEFFERSONVILLE GA ADULT CONTEMPORARY Z 93.7 100.0 207.0
32-45-12 83-33-46 [865 mi]

2234: 92.1, ad for wiregrass.edu, a tech school; 279-896-7679 maybe
for next ad, ``Talk 92.1``, so it`s this, as Adel is just N of I-75
from Wiregrass main campus Valdosta:

WDDQ 92.1 ADEL GA TALK TALK 92.1 2.6 154.1 31-08-15 83-23-41 //
WSFB-1490 [905 mi]
WDDQ interrupted by music in Spanish, probably already WJXR as below.

2237: 95.1, RDS with song titles, ``FRIEND / KELLY BL/ ACKBEAR``; 2239
YL DJ ID ``95.1 WAPE, Jaxonvil`s #1 music station``:

WAPE-FM 95.1 JACKSONVILLE FL HD CONTEMPORARY HIT RADIO THE BIG APE
100.0 300.0 30-19-22 81-38-34 5632 WAPE title & Artist Now Playing
Title & Artist Top 40 [1024 mi]

2240: 96.5 music in Spanish probably WOEX as below

2241: 101.5, a local note: constant RDS only as KOCD. Spanglish ID as
``Salvación Radio Network``, 405-AC phone

KOCD KWDW-LP 101.5 OKEENE OK Spanish RELIGIOUS RADIO SALVACIÓN 14.0
0.0 88.0 0.0 36-07-11 98-15-45 352F kocd LIBERTAD EN CRISTO MINISTRIES
[this one has horizontal power only][47 mi]

2242: 104.5, financial talk over Woodward, Okie, likely this as skip
has shifted into north FL:

WOKV-FM 104.5 ATLANTIC BEACH FL HD NEWS/TALK NEWS 104.5 WOKV 98.8
309.0 30-16-34 81-33-53 7AB9 104.5 WOKV, JACKSONVILLE'S NEWS TALK
104.5 104.5 WOKV Jacksonville's News and Talk News [1037 mi]

2244: 105.9, two stations mixing, talk and music: probably:

WOCL 105.9 DELAND FL HD CLASSIC HITS 105.9 SUNNY FM 96.0 484.0
28-55-10 81-19-08 79DF Title & Artist Sunny 105.9 Rock [1088

83-13-54 8CB8 WVGA newstalk1059.fm [926 mi]

2247: 92.1, romantic music in Spanish, IDs for 3 stations, mentions
MacClenny 92.1, an AM 1160 and an FM translator; `` Latina, tu
musica``; another ID for WJXR, W248-- 97.5 in Callahan and 1160 in
Callahan:

WJXR 92.1 MACCLENNY FL Spanish TROPICAL LATINA 92.1 25.0 100.0
30-17-54 82-00-55 [1001 mi]

2258: 96.5, Spanish romantic music, partial RDS: ``OLVIDES / MUSICA
Y``, 2300 ``Exitos 96.5``, ``palabra clave: amor``:

WOEX 96.5 ORLANDO FL HD Spanish CONTEMPORARY HIT RADIO EXITOS 96.5
99.0 454.0 28-34-07 81-03-16 7A1F Song/Artist on Más Música Y Más
Variedad - 1-800-411-PAIN Song/Artist on Más Música Y Más Variedad -
1-800-411-PAIN No Program Type or Undefined Ex WDBO-FM [1102]

I keep tuning until 2318 but the opening seems over. Finally checking
6M DXMAP at 2335, MUFs are just below 88 at 83, 84 MHz. But still at
0145 May 3, plenty of Es <88 MHz over E and W USA.

Note: I do not count stations, states, or anything, so whether or not
a log be 100% definite does not matter; I have merely done my best to
research available info, to report as fully as possible what happened

** CANADA. 244-MCW kHz, May 2 at 0552 UT, dash and TH, 1000-watt ND
beacon at Thompson MB. Logged before but not often, last Dec & Jan but
not since; time is running out per dxinfocentre.com:

``244 TH CAN MB THOMPSON 1000 55 47 40 -97 51 15 TO BE DECOMMISSIONED
2021-08-12``

Thompson is at/near the end of the road in north central MB, beyond
The Pas and Flin Flon, 2152 km = 1337 statute miles, almost due north
from Enid.

Also two other Canadians, only Manitobans tonight; if any Canadian,
can make it best vs storm noise levels, it`s WG:

248-MCW kHz, May 2 at 0551, dash and WG, 1000-watt NDB at Winnipeg.

284-MCW kHz, May 2 at 0549, dash and QD, 500-watt NDB at The Pas,
Manitoba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [non?]. 9360, May 2 at 1711, S2-S5 in Chinese; probably CNR1
jammer; or RFA Chinese via Kuwait at 17-21 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [non]. 13645, May 2 at 1707, hilife music, S8 fading to S5.
It`s the Swahili hour of CRI via Bamako II, MALI; followed by another
hour in Hausa. Wonder if Swahili service be another one filled by
nothing but African music (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K [non]. 9615, May 2 at 1721, S5-S7 in Korean, then some English
so it`s a lesson including words muscle and coffee, bits of music. BBC
Korean is scheduled 1530-1830 via Tinang, PHILIPPINES, also aimed
onward USward (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2084 monitoring: confirmed UT Sun
May 2 from 0320 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO, S9+10. Next:

2000 UT Sunday IRRS 918-Italy

** U S A. 5970, May 2 at 0558, WEWN Spanish, RCM, is missing (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 12160, Sun May 2 at 1709, no signal from WWCR-2, altho the
other three are audible, the uppers with a bit of sporadic E: 15825,
13845 and 9980. 12160 is supposed to start at 1500 after 7490, which
is not on now either. 12050 WEWN is poorly audible at similar
megameter distance.

It so happens that per the April 1 program sked, Sun 17-18 on 12160 is
supposed to carry The Overcomer. I wonder if that have expired and so
turned off the transmitter rather than fill with something else.

Reminds me, I have been intending to quote the following, as all kinds
of contradictory info has been coming out about whether or how far in
advance TOM is paid up at various stations:

``[WOR] Glitch at WRMI? Apr 25 at 5:16 AM --- Both 5850 and 5950 had
dead air at 0507 tune in, but a few seconds later, there was an
announcement from the Overcomer Ministry that the programs were paid
up until October, and what happens after that is solely dependent on
funding. Dead air again at 0509 and still so at 0516 UTC. Dead air
continued until 0541:58 when Overcomer resumed. 73, Walt Salmaniw,
Victoria BC`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
