1630  Mexican playing light classical music Friday afternoon. Went to OC 
       at 5:55 PM PDT then off at 6:04 PM  PDT.  They seem to still be 
       testing sounds like they go up and down with the modulation, also 
       the signal strength goes up and down.  They do have a clean signal 
       and no sideband slop yet, like others on the x-band.  I like the 
       kind of music they play and no ads


Arnold - ARNOLDEVNS@xxxxxxx (via Pat Martin)

Word today is that KRZI 1580 in Waco will be on the air on 1660 within 
the next 2 weeks.  The transmitter building is built and the tower is 
half-way up.  The ground system is already installed.  I'm not sure what 
the calls will be on 1660 or what they'll do with 1580.  They say they'll 
be on the air in time for the Baylor University Football season - which 
is 2 weeks away.

I previously reported an UNID on 1700kHz heard briefly at 9:10am CDT on 
8/7 consisting of "On the Road Again" by guitarist Chet Atkins.

It has been identified thusly by Paul Ormandy of NZ:
KBGG runs a program called "On the Road" .... it's a motoring show and 
uses the song you heard (thought it was Willie Nelson, but then I'm no 
C&W fan!)... often heard here in NZ.
It was in and out very fast so perhaps I heard an instrumental bridge 
between Willie's words.  However, the guitar did sound like Chet Atkins's 

In any case, thanks Paul and all others who responded.

Wouldn't help, Paul. Cable TV RFI is pervasive. The source of it is the 
15.7 kHz horizontal oscillator in the set itself. This oscillator is 
powerful and strong in harmonics. The signal is picked up by the cable 
drop, and radiated back through the system. Picture dozens of TVs on at 
the same time, each one radiating this signal, on slightly different 
freqs, all bating against one another, and you see why cable TV is such a 

If you live in town or even in a suburban neighberhood, the cable TV main 
and drops to your neighbor's houses will radiate enough to screw up your 

Try living in apartsments! I have markers up past 21 Mhz! The only escape 
for me is the remote site. Fortunately up in here Northern CA, I have 
plenty of space and opportunity for that.
