11/5.  Tonight while listening to 1620, I heard the ID at 0059.50 EST 
(11/6), as Omaha's 1620" and that was followed by a cery quick "KEZW". 
Apparently these are the new calls, not KOIL. They were KAZP a week ago. 
Anyone else hear this?

**Craig - DXer@xxxxxxx

   That is interesting, last I knew KEZW was 1430 in Denver.  The way 
calls change around here that could have changed since I dont listen to 
them at all. But I am pretty sure that KEZW is still 1430 in Denver

**Paul Swearingen - Topeka KS - PlsBCBDXER@xxxxxxx

A week ago Ernie Wesolowski (who lives in Omaha) reported that they were 
ID'ing as "KGBW" (he wrote it down, so I'm sure of these letters.  
That's pretty close, phonetically, to what Pat has reported.  Perhaps I 
should turn on the radio here in Topeka and see what my ears report to 

Just now - at 1:00 pm CST, 11-6, the ID given at the top of the hour was 
"1620 ESPN, KGBW".  No city of license, so not a legal ID.

Pat Martin - Seaside OR - mwdxer@xxxxxxxxx

In a phone call to ESPN-1620-NE, I was told they are still KAZP, but 
they will be changing soon. I have no idea why they will not admit what 
call letters they are using. I have both KOIL & KGBW on tape now. I

Vince Stevens - vince@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Well, I've finally got the bandscan to a point where I think it will be 
of some use to those interested in the MW scene in Africa. (a list like 
this can never really be finished, because of the fact that things 
change on a daily basis in the broadcasting world)

Apologies for the many UNIDENTIFIED stations but unfortunately it would 
have taken months for me to get a positive ID on all these.(especially 
those in foreign languages like Arabic, for example)

       for over an hour on the car radio with "Spanglish" announcements, 
       commercials for local businesses and national products like Dawn 
       dishwashing liquid. Male DJ taking requests from female callers 
       who mostly requested contemporary Spanish-language love songs. 
       Was broadcasting from, or promoting, a bar called OK Corral. 
       Announcer did not pronounce the "n" in "Brownsville" during the 
       many ads and announcements.  Slogans included "1600 AM Estereo" 
       (so must be still //1600), and "Lo Maximo en Radio".  This 
       station finally seems to be getting out better.  New, TX #75.

Robert Foxworth - rfoxwor1@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Well I did some car radio X-band DX Tue evening the 9th, only one catch 
of real interest (tent. Colorado) but here goes...a real good evening 
compared to some...local sunset around 1745...

1640  WKSH  Certainly this one, Christian mx, soft spoken girl 
       discussing Christian themes, about 1810, quite good and clear for 
       about 5 minutes, first time ever heard anything from them here, 
       not heard later in evening.
1690  KDDZ  (I think this is the call) presumed strongly this one, at 
       1840, a fair WMDM with discussion pgm faded down and this faded 
       up for about 60 seconds with definite Disney items, only fair 
       level but clear, then gone again, first ever   gotten here, 
       KCJJ-1630 was excellent at same time. Seems early to hear this, 
       but a nice surprise.
1700  KQXX  About even with WAFN at 1830, tejano mx, SS Ancts by girl, 
       Dallas much weaker then. Interesting this peaked up so much 
1700  Had  "1310 the Ticket" from Dallas well atop WAFN from 1750 to 
       1800, sports talk, did not hear them ID, faded under at 1800

All heard on Sony radio in my truck while driving over to my archaeology 
group meeting in St Petersburg, FL, checked somewhat last night (Wed) 
but not the same good signals

Incidentally WTIR-1680 still doing "signal strength tests", running 40 
minute tape loop, could it maybe be their pgmg is not ready yet?  How 
long does it take to do these "tests"? I am sure they are not running 10 
kW nights any longer.




John Fisher - 76635.615@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

 810  UNID, 0127-0138 MDT, Oct 28. While listening to KGO, I heard a 
       station playing periodic tones on about a 3 minute cycle. There 
       was a long tone, pause, medium tone, pause, then a series of 7 or 
       8 tones in descending pitch, followed by another medium tone. 
       There would then be about 2 1/2 minutes of silence before the 
       cycle repeated again. A DX test or a station doing overnight 
       maintenance? (John Fisher - Calgary, Alberta)


John Wisyanski - jessegp@xxxxxxxxxxxx

Does anyone have a postal or email address for XEUT, the Tijuana X-
bander on 1630 kHz? I'm picking them up with a good signal here in 
Northern California, both before and after sunset, with soft jazz music, 
also Latin-flavored jazz. IDs by a female with a with time checks at the 
bottom of the hour; almost sounded automated. Early sign-off some nights 
after presumed Mexican national anthem, approx. 8pm PST. Any info you 
could give would be helpful.

Paul Ormandy - NZ - paulorm@xxxxxxxx

In a QSL from 2AP's Chief Technical Officer, Mr. C Warren, for 747kHz I 
am able to pass on the following information about the MW service.

540kHz is now the only full-time channel carrying the bi-lingual 
(English and Samoan) service from 6 a.m. till 11 p.m. daily (1700 - 1000 
UTC). The former second program channel of 747kHz is now only used for 
carrying school broadcasts 8:30 a.m. till 9:30 a.m. (1930 - 2030 UTC) 
and then switched off. This channel is also used for broadcasts of the 
English version (translated) from Samoa's Parliament when it's in 

747kHz uses a DX 10 Harris transmitter fed into a 120 metre mast with 
omnidrectional pattern.

11/9.  Yesterday I had the opportunity to meet the CE of KFAN (50kW day, 
6 towers - 25kW nights 9 towers) at the transmitter site.  I took a few 
pics of the site, and got some info as well.  By this weekend I should 
have a page up with the pics and info.

The 9 tower site is really something!  This array puts out about 
375,000watts ERP during the day.  During the "tour", he even fired up 
the old backup tube Harris MW-50, and ran it into  a dummy load.  That 
building sure heated up quick with that rig on!

I also have many other tower pics including KLUVs' 12 tower array, WBTs' 
3 Blau Know array, amongst others.  The web site can be found at
