Bill Hale, N5SZC - billhale@xxxxxxxxxx

I received this message from Tom Bryant in Nashville.  Give it a try.  If they
are running day power (10 kw) and pattern (U1), most should be able to hear
them, unless we're another 1550.

"A call to KQFN 1550 West Fargo, ND revealed that they have been remaining on
power and pattern due to 'trouble at the transmitter'.  The non-technical
person I spoke to said it might be a couple of weeks before they were able to
revert to normal nighttime operation.  In the meanwhile, an excellent chance
for many to log a some-what rare state."

Good hunting,


J.D. Stephens - JSteph6711@xxxxxxx

Saw info on Fidonet saying that starting 11-12-95, and lasting "for a few
days" that CBL-740 and CJBC-860 will be operating at 15 kw rather than full
power of 50 kw. The reason is that work is being done on the common antenna
system the message said they shared.

Another message from a different person said that he heard on CBL that they
would be off "late nights" from 11-18 to 11-24 due to transmitter work being
done. Although the message didn;t say, I am wondering if this is actually due
to the same reason in the previous paragraph, and if this would affect CJBC as
Definitely 2 frequencies to keep a watch on during the next 10 days or so for
some DX possibilities!

WLW, WWL, WHAS, WWWE, CBU, CBR, CBK, CBW have been in regularly.  Too bad
there are so many NSP pests in this part of the country!

1610  ????   ????? 11/03 0537 NJ Turnpike Authority TIS station. Location
             unknown, giving 800#'s for further info 800- 33-NJTPK; at a
             different time, another station was giving info for Atlantic City
             expwy, but if AC,NJ easy catch because of over water path.
1610  ????   ????? 11/03 0505 Recorded weather forecast for Albany area with
             current conditions at airport.  Obviously TIS station, but pretty
             good at 146 miles (if Albany)  If this is Mt. Vernon/New Rochelle
             transmitter, then 98 miles still ain't bad.  (MS-CT)
1630  ????   ????? Looping NNW/SSE Religious music and recitations... no ID's
             heard but what appears to be the same station has also been heard
             in FL to ID as "This is WJTS, FM 108 AM 1630...John 3:16 Jesus is
             Lord.." A 'holy pirate??? (TB-TN)  (Tom: I have also hrd this one
             here in Ocala, but never could get the ID-ed see below)
1630  ????   Several people have forwarded to me a message from David Crawford
             from the Internet.  Here's what he says about the above. "Several
             of us in FL have been trying to make some sense out of the
             location.  This has been difficult because of a Navaid on the
             same freq. messing up our DF bearings.  I get a 40/220 degree
             azimuth bearing here (I don't know where here is?-ed) and have
             physically traveled the heading on the southwest leg and can
             confirm it's not located in the Carribean since it stays in past
             1500z here in the daytime. So, your reported NNW bearings may
             actually be SSE.  The ID's are rather sparse, but always the same
             (see above).  The FCC has no record of this one, so it appears to
             be a pirate of sorts:  WJDM 1660 is the only station authorized
             to do any testing at this time.  (courtesy of Tom Bryant) (If
             there are more DXers in FL, where are they HIDING???-ed)

1140  ????   WRMQ listed incorrectly last week as 1150.  Checked again today
             and they are still running Spanish..?????  (LF-FL)
1160  ????   ??  11/08 2217-2315 in during KSL fades with numerous "Oldie"
             tunes.  No liners, just music w/ 2sec pause between songs. 
             Didn't hear any local breaks or liners at all???? (of course it
             faded at ID time!)  (LF-FL)
1440  ????   ??  11/05 0300-0330 Kept hearing station with sports nx, sports
             talk, sports scores. Who ???  (LH-AL)

                            DX TESTS
 690  HCJB   Tried, nothing Heard  (KVJ-GA)
      HCJB   Tried, thought I hrd a tone, but not enough to be sure it
             was a tone. (LF-FL) 
1000  WJDL   AL, Huntsville 10/23 0200-0230 not heard, WMVP still on despite
             mention that they would be off.  Nulling WMVP only produced CFRB
             slop. (MB-ON) 
1320  WAMR   FL, Venice 10/23 0300-0400 As mentioned last week Lynn Hollerman
             thought the test may have been hrd in New Zealand. Received a
             nice letter from Andrew Gardner in Wellington.  His accurate
             logging of the tones will garner him a QSL for his first American
             DX test!!  Now if I can just coax that signal to Pat Martin's
             Beverage Barn in Oregon!!!  (LF-FL)
1440  KVON   CA, Napa, 11/05 Tried, nothing heard  (KVJ-GA)
      KVON   CA, Napa, 11/05 possible CW at 0302, 0307, beeping tones at 0302,
             0312, 0314, 0315, 0316, 0320, 0325, 0329. No voice ID hrd. 
1560  WSEZ   IN, Paoli 11/6 Code ID's only noted approx every 5 minutes
             beginning at 0124, so possibly a late start.  Last ID noted 0155,
             Strong WPAD/WQXY QRM.  (KVJ-GA)
      WSEZ   IN, Paoli 11/6 0116 Weak CW (3 groups heard) ending at 0132. 
             WPAD almost impossible to null. IN # 31 Total now 923  (TB-TN)
