WGSR-1570 test reports (all **):

  Robert Foxworth (Tampa FL): Hrd WGSR atop channel 1570 but with 
moderate chatter in backgrd, at 0005, playing 70's music, gave number to 
call 904-277-0630 (hope I remembered it correctly)  73 Bob F in Tampa FL
  Walter Breville (FL): A quick report to say that Ron's WGSR-1570 is 
making it to the very middle of Florida, my den here at Nalcrest 10 
miles east of Lake Wales, 60 miles due east of Tampa. Signal fading 
in/out, quite good at times, especially when he gave a time check of 
12:04 followed by a greeting to NRC and IRCA members, another good fade-
in at 12:11-12 with weather report, again at 12:28 when he talks about 
having 1 1/2 years to go in the Navy. Am using a barefoot Grundig 
Satellit 700 radio, which isn't as sensitive as a Superradio. Air 
distance, Nalcrest to Fernandia Beach is 193 miles. Several other 
stations interfering, including WCLE Cleveland, TN. Enjoying the 70s 
records being spun.
  Powell E. Way III (Columbia SC): I am hearing WGSR but V E R Y poorly 
considering that I would normally hear it super duper here in South 
Carolina! A country station that's strong is causing a problem and the 
Mottled Mouse on 1560 causing chatter, too.
  John Callarman (Krum TX): Finished some last-minute house work at 0105 
EST 11/23 prior to hosting family Thanksgiving gathering, came to radio 
room and found a null on XERF, and by doodly doggone it, there was New 
Star 1570 WGSR dominant for the tag end of the unknown music that was 
playing, then there for the next whole record, but when "Higher and 
Higher" as the temperature gets "lower and lower" began, the XERF null 
closed and ranchera (or nortena) music topped the channel. It's 940 
miles from my bedroom to WGSR transmitter, according to readout based on 
three-figure Lat/Long reading ... and 940 has some significance for me. 
I worked at KIXZ-940 1959-60 and WMIX-940 1970-81 ... and my telephone 
area code here in Krum TX is 940.
  Best reception of the WGSR test this morning was that four-minute 
period posted earlier. At 0127, I heard Ron start to introduce Donna 
Summers (if my ears heard right, then said "No, it's not Donna Summers 
... it's called disk jockey error ... live radio here at WGSR." ;-) 
Unless Ron ran a lengthy sports scoreboard beginning 0143, there was a 
third station there. When scoreboard ended, announcer gave name that 
sounded like "I'm Wayne Story" and that station seemed to continue with 
sports talk while WGSR did a Shawn Cassidy song. I thought I'd try to 
get a good XERF ID for the taped log at 0200 break, got call and city, 
but XERF was in a fade and WGSR music QRM'd the even un-nulled XERF. Who 
does sports talk on 1570?
  Bill Fairbanks (Coral Springs FL): Ron's show is coming in pretty 
darned well here in Ft. Lauderdale area at 1:30 am considering the 
abundant QRM.  Great music....good job, Ron !! Drake SW2 and Kiwa Loop
  Paul Staupe: RE: WGSR test on 11/22/00:  Thanks Phil for the last 
minute note on the test.   I hastily set up my Ripple-ized R-390A last 
night ( with Sherwood SE-3) for the first time since I got it back from 
Chuck about nine months ago.  .Antenna was a 40 foot vertical.  Amazing 
to hear strong beat note on 1570 at about 12:30 EST.  Couldn't get an 
ID, but I knew it was there.  R-390A is an amazing BCB receiver!

***I accidentally posted a wrong version of this item which was based on 
incorrect information. My apologies. The correct version is as 
  The Maiac radio center in Moldova went silent on 999 & 1548 kHz after 
severe weather and landslides hit the region during the last days. It is 
currently unclear wether the facilities at the site were damaged or the 
transmitters are off because the electricity supply was interrupted.

  11/30 from about 8 to 11 EST, someone was running SRN news, anti-
recount phone-in shows, and religious commentaries on 1610 kHz. Just 
dead air where the hourly IDs would have been.  KALT in Atlanta, Texas 
is the only X-bander authorized to use this frequency, and the trades 
said they were shooting for an October airdate.
  Not strong despite the open channel; WTAW-1620 (has this thing EVER 
dropped power at sundown??) was ten times the mystery station's 
strength, but at peaks it was easily readable.  


  The following stations are rumoured to be possibly going to a sports 


This from recent stories in the Globe & Mail

Eric Bueneman - n0uiheric@xxxxxxx

  While tuning around the AM band yesterday (11/30), I noted that WJCE-
680 Memphis, TN has switched formats. The station has dropped ABC's R&B 
Oldies feed (as "The Juice") for the Westwood One Adult Standards feed, 
employed by local WRTH-1430 and X-bander KQWB-1660. Their new slogan is 
"The All New Easy 680", still using the WJCE calls. This was a smart 
move; WJCE's daytime coverage includes southeast Missouri, some areas of 
which cannot receive KAPE-1550 Cape Girardeau.

*Dennis Gibson - dcgibson@xxxxxxxxxxxxx

  There are now three, count 'em, three all sports stations in Los 
Angeles. The latest is KSPN-1110, which was KRLA for decades and up 
until midnight last night. Another set of legendary call letters down 
the toilet. KSPN will be a mixture of local and ESPN network 
programming. Not surprisingly, they will be owned (I'm not sure if the 
sale has been finalized) by ABC/Disney, which also owns ESPN. The other 
two all sports stations (KMPC-1540 and KXTA-1150) ratings haven't 
exactly been setting the world on fire, so this should be interesting. I 
think the ESPN radio network is quite well done, more than I can say for 
One-on-One Sports, which has just been sold.

*Richard Toebe - richtoebe@xxxxxxx

  While tuning the dial early this evening (12/1) , I heard 1020 Roswell 
NM use the call letters KINF, several times; they used the slogan 
"Information Radio" as well.  The latest SDXM, 8b, lists Roswell as 
changing calls from KCKN to KXEM.  But I clearly heard KINF.

**Mark Durenberger - mark@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Roswell is ID-ing as "KINF, Roswell New Mexico".

****Bernd Trutenau - btrutenau@xxxxxxxx

  According to a private TV station in Moldova, the icestorm last week 
resulted in the collapse of a "200 meter" mast at the Maiac transmitting 
center. Freezing rain caused a cover of ice with a thickness of up to 
32mm in the region. There is currently no information availble about 
further damages to buildings or antennas as a result of the crash. This 
would be the second mast which crashed at the center, acc. to Russian 
sources a 350 meter mast (which was earlier used for longwave 234 kHz) 
fell down in another incident during the last years.

  From The Times of Valparaiso, Indiana, Tuesday, December 5, 2000
  WAKE-AM (1500) has announced it will now broadcast earlier in the 
morning and later in the evening thanks to a recent digital AM 
transmitter upgrade.  Known in the industry as a "daytimer" due to its 
sunrise to sunset broadcast schedule, WAKE will now be able to stretch 
its programming hours to start earlier in the day and conclude as late 
as 10:30 PM in the evening.
  Since 1964, WAKE has featured a program of songs from many eras along 
with local news, weather and other information. The station is owned and 
operated by Radio One Communications.

  I noticed a statement today on the Web site of Radio Cook Islands 
saying their 5kW transmitter (630kHz)is running at half power due to 
power costs. Apologies if this is old news, but I don't recall seeing 
that statement before.

*kevin redding - lwdxer@xxxxxxxx

Heard on a GE Superadio [the original one] barefoot:

1290  KWFS  TX, Wichita Falls 11/30 0800 ABC News, then id and ads for a 
       barbecue that has been around for 51 years. Under withering KXAM 
1330  KLBO  TX, Monahans 11/30 0812 with school lunches and its pigs in 
       a blanket today. Sponsored by Jack and Jill.

Here's the morning logs heard on a DX-440 anad RS 18-1533 loop:

1180  KOIL  NE, Omaha 11/23 0837 with Radio Disney and into an ad bank 
       with ads for Fantasia 2000 and other Disney stuff. 
 990  KRKS  CO, Denver 11/23 0851 preaching and talking about God 
       casting out Satan and listening no more, then overecome by a 
 940  KFRE  CA, Fresno 11/23 0855 "Nueve Quarenta, Nueve Quarenta, Nueve 
       Quarenta, Fresno." Has Radio Unica.
 610  KNML  NM, Albuquerque 11/23 giving sports scores. 
 560  KBLU  AZ, Yuma 11/23 with ID and "CNN newstime 731". Under 
       extremely heavy splash from KFYI. This is extremely rare for 
       Mesa, Arizona. Not so rare for Phoenix. Go figure. 

All of these were heard on a TM-152 with Radio Shack 18-1533 loop and 
played through a GE 3-5685B boombox into a pair of Sony MDR-180 
headphones: [ you should have seen all the patch cords ]

 570  KNRS  UT, Salt Lake City 2022 11/23 with Ken Garth Volvo ad. Now 
       this one is in stereo with the pilot lit. Thats unusual and to 
       top it off they have ads running for the Utah Symphony and Dvorak 
       in the background in stereo. I doubt its a permanent thing but 
       they were on tonight and doing a bang up job. 
 670  KLTT  CO, Denver 2027 11/23 and religious programming in stereo, 
       pilot lit but program sounded like mono run through stereo. 
 680  KNBR  CA, San Francisco 2029 11/23 with ESPN hockey talk and pilot 
       on but ESPN feed must be mono. There has been some controversy 
       about this one too but I get it the same on my Chrysler Imperial 
       6 band GEQ RX-690S as well. 
 790  KABC  CA, Los Angeles 2033 11/23 ads for State Farm Insurance and 
       into ABC news droning on and on about the election that will 
       never end.  They were in Stereo.
 820  WBAP  TX. Ft. Worth 2133 11/23 with local news in stereo and 
       having fits and fights with XEUDO. 
1110  KFAB  NE, Omaha 2043 11/23 Hey! I thought these guys were supposed 
       to be mono? They had a bazillion ad bank with ads for lots of 
       stuff then into The Garden Cafe, Dodge cars, St. Joseph's Towers 
       for old folks, and finally after about 12 ads in a row, the ever 
       stupid Phil Hendrie Show. They were in stereo. 
1170  KVOO  OK, Tulsa 2048 11/23 "Classic Country, AM 1170, KVOO" and 
       www.kvoo.com in stereo. 
1210  KGYN  OK, Guymon 2050 11/23 with this ID, "You're listening to AM 
       stereo 1210, Guymon, KGYN". Its nice to hear someone advertize AM 
       stereo when so many are turning off the exciter. In stereo. 
1400  KSUN  AZ, Phoenix 2053 11/23 "Radio Fiesta la podera rodeador!" 
       They had a string of SS ads for Mexican dances and they sounded 
       fluttery and crappy as ever. In stereo but they sound terrible. 
1520  KOMA  OK, Oklahoma City 2056 11/23 There has been considerable 
       talk about this station. I heard it as stereo by some and not 
       stereo by some. Tonight I heard the Cowboys post game whine fest. 
       The pilot was on here but they were in the left ear only. Then 
       when the pilot dropped it was mono in both ears. Go figure. 
1650  KBJD  CO, Denver 2100 11/23 with a ToH ID [ top of hour ] and 
       slogan "The Beat" in stereo with pilot on. 
1660  KXOL  UT, Brigham City 2101 in stereo playing The Supremes, "Baby 
       Love". There has been considerable controversy about this one on 
       several radio lists but they are in stereo and do have the pilot 
       on and they just play a lot of pre stereo [ prior to 1958 ] 
       records and they are in mono but transmitted in stereo so they 
       sound like, guess what, mono.
1700  KTBK  TX, Dallas 2100 talking about Texas high school football 
       then a combination ID with KTBK and KTCK both being IDed. 

Daytime stereo scan using a TM-152 and RS18-1533 loop:

 640  KFI   CA, Los Angeles 11/24 0923 pilot on and in stereo with a 
       special edition of "Food Talk". I have them in stereo on the TM-
       152 with pilot lit. I have them in stereo on the Sony SRF-42. I 
       do NOT have them in stereo on the Chrysler RX-690S. I believe the 
       difference is that the Chrysler is on a a wire and the other two 
       are on a loop or internal ferrite rod loop and the signal peaked 
       by turning the loops. 
 710  KDIS  CA, Los Angeles 11/24 0935 playing "The Christmas Song" 
       which is the first Christmas song they played this season. And 
       its Radio Disney in stereo.
 780  KAZM  AZ, Sedona 11/24 0938 with an ad for "The home of the 
       miracle deal, Verde Valley Ford." In stereo. 
1690  KDDZ  CO, Arvada 11/24 0949 with a kid making funny noises to win 
       a contest on Radio Disney.

Heard on a Radio Shack DX375 and RS 18-1533 loop:

 730  KBSU  ID, Boise 1131 It's winter! KBSU is in with real acoustic 
       jazz during the daylight hours. Ella Fitzgerald was singing 
       "Sittin' and a-rockin'."

As an aside, and as a testament to modern technology, I have played with 
the DX-375 and a GE Superadio [ original version ] and the DX-375 
matches up with it on MW. I almost never listen to HF so I can't speak 
to that, but I can say that the MW on this little radio is pretty good.

The following is from my trip to Lapeer County (MI).  All loggings were 
made in Imlay City, Michigan, corner of M-53 & M-21, using a Sony 2010, 
no external antenna.  Comments are in [].

 540  CBEF  ON Windsor - 11/23 - 1646.  Music with announcements for 
       station shows, & ID in FF.  [Normally I would not submit this as 
       DX, as it's a semi-local, however this station had the strongest 
       signal of all on the dial]
 560  WLLZ  MI Monroe - 11/23 - 1650.  Distorted church program. 
       Preacher's voice was clipped at times.
 570  WKBN  OH Youngstown - 11/23 - 1655.  Psychic program with 
       occasional mentions of phone numbers along with "WKBN", and promo 
       for next week's show.  [This one surprised me.]
 580  CKWW  ON Windsor - 11/23 - 1658.  Christmas music with ID into 
       Tony Bennett song.
 600  WSNL  MI Flint - 11/23 - 1700.  MX into top of hour ID: 
       "Michigan's Salt & Light.  WSNL, Flint, Midland, Bay City, 
       Saginaw."  into MX.
 630  CFCO  ON Chattam - 11/23 - 1701.  MX into ID: "This is Chattam-
       Kent's 6-30 Solid Gold, CFCO."  Into news.
 660  WMIC  MI Sandusky - 11/23 - 1703.  [Off air when I tuned in.  
       Forgot to take Sunset/Sunrise maps with me on this trip, so I 
       assume that they did a sign-off at 1700.]
 690  WNZK  MI Westland - 11/23 - 1704.  ID "WNZK" into what sounded 
       like Arabic music.
 710  WOR  NY New York - 11/25 - 1742.  Cat food commercial with 
       locations in Brooklyn & Queens.  Jingle "Radio 7-10, WOR", health 
       food spot [I would have spaced this a little further than the cat 
       food commercial], and then into pet store commercial.  [9 of 10 
       leds lit on the 2010 with no fading. If CHYR-710 were around, 
       they would have been in serious trouble].

[Note:  All the NY state clears  on 660, 710, 770, 810, 880, + 1010 have
better signals here than in Lima]

 850  WRMR  OH Cleveland - 11/25 - 1748.  Promo "... and thanks for 
       listening to the music of your life on WRMR".  Into Christmas 
 880  KRVN  NE Lexington - 11/25 - 1753.  Song "PT-109" back sell with 
       ID of KRVN, into "ITT" commercial, and weather where it was 38 
       degrees.  [28 in Imlay City <grin>]  WCBS very dominate, but I 
       was able to hold the radio for enough null to bag this one.
1010  Unid!!  11/25 - 1755.  Unidentified C&W station up and down.  
       Could have given ID at TOH but I could not catch it.  Went into 
       MX till fade out at 1806.

Notes:  Did not get to set up at the farm in Almont MI as it rained the 
whole weekend.  DXing was confined to the pool room of the Days Inn 
while watching Jon & Connie get tired of swimming.  The funny moment of 
the day (11/25) came when I was showing my brother my 2010, and while 
listening to 1340 we heard him doing a commercial on WLEW-1340.  He is 
the CE and does mornings at the station.  1230 WMPC had a real good 
signal in Lapeer and Macomb county.  Very clear and good strength.  
Contrary, WLSP was under modulated, distorted, and I needed to drive 
some 12 miles closer to get a better signal from the station.  That's 
(2) stations that I worked for in the past that at one time sounded 
good, but now are pitiful.  That's about all.  Tomorrow it's the drive 
back home.  CUL from Lapeer County MI

hoping someone here might be able to help with.

 760  MEXICO XENY?? Nogales, SON?  DEC 2 1323 - SS; ID "La ____ana", 
       siete sesenta" and a clear mention of Nogales.  The old IRCA 
       Mexican list has the Nogales XENY station silent (I've ordered 
       the latest edition).  No call letters heard, and this wasn't a 
       "legal ID".  Anyone have any info? [Hawk-CA]
 780  KAZMt AZ Sedona - 12/3 2330 Sunday night football (Bears vs 
       Packers). Didn't sound like it was on the Bears network (i.e. 
       WBBM) so may have been just generic coverage.  ID at 2358 sounded 
       like KAZM; ID a bit later also sounded like KAZM, but I didn't 
       have the tape player going.  Can any AZ member confirm that they 
       carry Sunday night football? (MH-CA)
 800  UNID ?? - 12/4 0026 SS station under XEROK and KHIS.  ID sounded 
       like "Radio Cinta".  "Cinta" probably isn't correct, as that

       wait to get the IRCA Mexican log (soon-pb). (MH-CA)

Near Ironwood, MI (home is Waukesha, WI)
Rig: Hammarlund HQ-129-X
Antenna: 1500' Un-terminated beverage E/W

  I set up the 1500' beverage about 2 years ago at my ski chalet in 
northern Michigan, and really have not had the chance to use it. The 
beverage is strung through trees in a virgin forest, so it is not 
straight. I kept it un-terminated so that I will have bi-directionality. 
I am hoping to string a N/S 1300' beverage this winter and then phase 
the 2 for steering the directionality. It is easier to string these in 
the winter, due to the fact that the land is rather swampy, and in the 
winter the ice freezes, though I have about waist deep snow to trudge 
through. Let me tell you it is a good workout! I am hoping that with the 
N/S beverage, I will be able to get into Asia. These reports were taken 
between ski runs. We had 2 feet of snow on the ground already.

While in my car going to the grocrey store I flipped down to 530 kHz snd 
was surprised to hear a spanich Christina radio station. At 9 PM local 
the identified in english as being located on Turks & Cacaos Island. 
Very good signals here in Bryan, Texas.. de Jody N5HQM

  Hi, I logged XEUT with an amazing signal 0020-0103 UTC 6 December. SIO 
444. Peaked S9+20. Almost like local FM. Non-stop jazz, "Big Ben" chimes 
on the hour, ID as Radio Universidad Autonoma de Baja California" & 
"Resume de Noticias" - BBC news items. Hope WRTH2000 address is ok, 
sending report there. Any URL or E-mail address known ? Regards from

  For the past couple of weeks, I have been chasing Mexican stations on 
AM and have been surprised at the stations I've been able to identify 
and tape as the weave in and out of the QRM filled frequencies. My 
equipment is not optimum, though the receiver is Optimus, an STA-795 
from Radio Shack, to be exact, and the antenna is nothing more than the 
store-bought RS loop.
  There are a couple of rules that apply to Mexican reception. First, 
the strongest signal will be heard while it is playing music. The next 
strongest signal that's heard will be while it is running a string of 
commercials, usually at a very fast vocal pace. The weakest signal will 
be when it is giving an ID. And if you are able to get a signal while 
the station is ID'ing, the announcement will be made by a deep-voiced 
man with echo-effect audio, the hardest voice combination to hear in 
  Fortunately, there have been some exceptions, and since November 27, 
these are stations I have taped for the log and reported to Jim 
Renfrew's fine section -- 580 XEMU La Rancherita del Aire, Piedras 
Negras, Coah.; 640 XEHHI, Radio Uno, El Numero Uno, Hidalgo del Parral, 
Chih.; 660 XEVSS, Hermosillo, Son.; 670 XETOR Radio Ranchita, Torreon, 
Coah.; 690 XEN Ondas del Lago, Mexico, D.F.; 700 tentative XEGD Hidalgo 
del Parral, Chih. (commercials for Parral retailers heard); 710 XEDP Cd. 
Cuauhtemoc, Chih.; 750 XETI, Radio Fiesta, Tuxpan, Veracruz; 760 XEABC, 
Radio ABC, Los Reyes La Paz, Mex. (gives that location in its ID, with 
offices in Mexico City).
  Also, 770 XEFTA, Los Mochis, Sin.; 770 XEIH Fresnillo, Zac.; 780 XEMF, 
Que Bueno, Monclova, Coah.; 790 XEBI, Radio BI, Aguascalientes, Ags.; 
790 XERC, El Fonografo, Mexico, D.F.; 800 XEROK, Radio Canon, Juarez, 
Chih. (while trying to ID two others on the frequency); 830 XEIK, La 
Nortenita, Piedras Negras, Coah.; 840 XEFG La Pachanga, Celaya, Gto.; 
880 XETC, Torreon, Coah.; 930 XEQS, Fresnillo, Zac.; 990 XET, La T 
Grande, Monterrey, N.L. (which cuts power dramatically plus or minus 
1800 EST).
  Also, 1000 XEOY, Radio Mil, Mexico, D.F., and another unidentified; 
1010 two unientifieds, one calling itself Diez Diez AM; 1030 XEMPM, 
Radio Fama, Los Mochis, Sin., starting a beisbol game; 1090 XEAU La 
Guacharaca, Monterrey, N.L., plus at least one unidentified station; 
1110 XEWR Cd. Juarez, Chih.; 1130 XETOL, Radio Lobo, Toluca, Mex.; 1140 
XEMR, Monterrey, N.L.; 1170 XEUVA, La Racherita, Aguascalientes, Ags.; 
1190 XECT, Morena, Monterrey, N.L.; and 1560 XEJPV, La Nueva Radio Viva, 
Cd. Juarez, Chih., all between 1800 and midnight, EST.
  A number of easier Mexicans such as XEWA-540, XEDTL-660, XEX-730, XEW-
900, XEQ-940, XEG-1050, and XERF-1570 seem to be there whenever I decide 
to tape them.
  Some of these, and others, I heard in Southern Illinois, particularly 
during auroral nights. One disadvantage here in Krum, Texas, north of 
Dallas/Fort Worth. Little or no auroral influence and clears are hard to 
null. At least most of the DFW stations point away from me at night.
  So here's my challenge. Go after these and man other unidentified 
Mexicans I'm hearing ... and the ones I'm not, as well.
  My set-up is far short of an R8B and a K9AY ... and even far short of 
a Sony 2010 and a couple of longwires into a DL-1 ... but I'm enjoying 
the chase for the first time in many years.

  ZBVI-780 was also dominating the channel here last evening (Wed 12/6) 
2330-2350Z with rap  music, soca music,  many local ads, and male DJ in 
Caribbean accented English.  I also noticed a strong het on the high 
side and, sure enough, Mauritania-783 was in at fair level with man in 
Arabic parallel to 4845 kHz.  To be honest, 4845 had a much stronger and 
clearer signal but, of course, I enjoyed the MW signal more, hi.

**Benjamin Dangerfield - ben-dangerfield@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  I too had good signals last night from ZBVI-780 and Mauretania-783 
[this was Wed. DEC 6] and as I pointed out a few days ago, both places 
are on the same latitude.  Other stations were also noted on this path.  
Also noted later around midnight here were France-1206 and 1557 and 
Monte Carlo-1467 plus many others with good signals.  Of course that's a 
different path.

  Well, here in El Salvador, "La voz de la Liberación" is a 24 h 
religious program (from the "Dios es amor" church) carried by Cadena 
cuscatlán (1550 kHz) & Radio Internacional (1020 kHz), sorry not 1300 
kHz.  The 1300 kHz is now a irregular religious station that i haven't  
Ided [ to busy to play with radios :-) ], but at this time (local 1100 
AM  (UTC -6) ) is off.  Maybe some day i'll update my list of salvadoran 
stations at http:\\www.goeocities.com/hmolina.geo
  PS: very often the accent of prayers on "L. V. de la liberación" sound 
like brasilian portuguese.

  According to LBV's  home page http://sistema.lbv.org/ 'Emissoras 
ligadas ao Sistema' the station on 1300 khz transmitting their programme 
A Voz da Liberacao in RGS from Porot Alegre.  I have heard LBV every now 
and then also in Spanish with programme La Voz deLiberación through 
brasilian stations. You may also want to check: http://www.lbv.org/ . So 
you heard RGS transmiitng also on 11895 sw. QSLs have been obtained also 
via LBV 

***Moises Corilloclla - corilloclla@xxxxxxxxx

  Someone asked about the issue behind Voz de la Liberación.
  Well, this is a network set up by the Pentecostal Church. When these 
people rents airtime at any station during certain hours, the radio 
station joins this network through the rented airtime.
  Maybe what you heard was a peruvian station. The main station from the 
network is Radio Victoria 820 KHz, Lima, bought by the church in 1994, 
if not a bit earlier...
  Even older stations like Radio Miraflores 1250 KHz, Lima, has been 
rented by these ppl especially at nights and midnight hours. Seems cash 
is flowing so the religious business makes great number here in Peru.

***Henrik Klemetz - dhv599n@xxxxxxxxx

The parent organization is rather the one found at 
http://www.ipda.org.br where there is audio, too, from the  Sao Paulo HQ 
and from Rio de Janeiro. I have heard the Sao Paulo audio, on very rare 
occasions, in parallel to Ecos de Colombia, 1160 and R Victoria, 
9722/6018. See 9721.6 entry at http://www.algonet.se/~ahk/Dline97.htm 
However, in general, the La V de la Liberación programmes are 
independent, which means that the programme heard on R Victoria is not 
same as the one heard on JSV, 6060, and any other of the stations 
carrying La V de la Liberación. Many of the preachers/healers are 
Brazilians, sent out from the Brazilian HQ. There are Dios es Amor 
churches in the USA, Australia and many other countries according to the 
web site mentioned above.

  From 2000 EST to 2100 EST I have a station on 1560 kc playing southern
gospel. And very good southern gospel, I might add.
  There has been NO Id so I think it may be a station doing some type of
test; transmitter or antennas, etc. 
  They have a S9+ 30db signal wipping out WPAD and WQEW.
  Might be WAGL Lancanster, SC which I heard sign off at 1715 EST. They 
are listed as 50kw, day timer.

  I have a very strong, black gospel station on 1580. They are abiut S-9
+10db. The only ID ever given is "Heaven 1580." 
  This my be WPGD-1580 IN morningside, MD. BUT, they are to have dropped 
their power to 270 watts at sundown. Sounds as if thhey are still on 
  Any body else hear this station?

**Jeff Multer - Fort Mill SC - JAMULTER@xxxxxxx

  According to a person at the station this morning, it was WAGL you 
heard. They had to work on the transmitter, and were using a gospel C-D.
  The gentleman I spoke with commented that he was surprised that you 
could hear the station.  As Powell noted in his post, the station's 
signal is directed toward Cuba.
  I got the impression that the station would not QSL for an unscheduled 
transmitter maintenance, but I congratulate you on the reception.  The 
person I spoke with (I didn't get a name) said that the station would be 
interested in a scheduled test for any radio club, as they have done 
them in past occasions.

  Radio Católica Mundial 1390 ?
  I believe that you have heard a station carrying audio from WEWN. 
Their Spanish language service is called R Católica Mundial. I have no 
information on hand, but I would think that the Maracaibo Lumen2000 is 
more likely to rebroadcast WEWN than the IRFA network (Fé y Alegría).

  Wondering if somebody out there can help me ID this station I heard 
last night 11/22 at 11:15pm. It was a Spanish speaker with constant 
talking or preaching. Every now an then a "alleluia" I guess. At 11:35PM 
The preaching stopped an then went into gospel type music. English! At 
about 12 male English speaker. Very bass and trying to sound like GOD! 
More music. I stopped there to go after WGSR! Any help on the above 
station would be greatful.This was heard on a Sangean ATS 505 and Radio 
Shack loop antenna.

with chit chat and music. The music is very up tempo and has I believe 
accordions at times and also sounds like "Polka" type music other times! 
I have heard it the past couple of nights going home from work, and last 
night it had a rather steady signal till it was time to ID.(OF COURSE). 
But I thought I heard a English ID at 5:05PM with a male voice and 
Spanish accent! Then this morning I heard this station again with music 
and talk in downtown Harrisburg, PA. where I work. I thought I heard 
Winston/ Salem mentioned. Could this be WSGH? At night I can ID WHO. 
Well that's it. Hope somebody can give me something on this.

  Interesting press release that I got today from the ITU.
  22 November 2000
  ITU clears the way to digital AM radio
  Geneva - A new wave of broadcasting is about to reach the marketplace 
with the recent adoption, by the International Telecommunication Union, 
of worldwide standard on digital sound broadcasting. The technology 
breakthrough promises to open up a new era of quality sound broadcasting 
for long, medium and shortwave transmissions. With the FM bands nearly 
congested and the poor quality of AM, digital AM radio offers many 
substantial advantages to broadcasters seeking to recapture market 
shares. For consumers, the decision means additional sources of 
programmes at FM like quality with low-cost, simple to use receivers.
  Because the same frequency bands based on the same channels will be 
used and the handsets will continue to be available in the same range of 
choices (fixed, portable and mobile radio), the change over to the new 
system will be completely transparent. What will be noticeable however 
will be the improved quality with crystal clear reception, the more 
diverse programme content as a result of the increase of broadcasters 
that will be able to be accommodated in the existing AM bands as well as 
richer content that the new digital features will offer. "It is a breath 
of fresh air " said Peter Senger, Chairman of Digital Radio Mondiale 
(DRM). "This landmark decision will bring affordable digital quality 
sound and services to the world radio markets that will surpass 
listeners' expectations and will revive the broadcasting market in areas 
whose development was stagnating" adding "This is the biggest 
advancement in broadcasting since the invention of the transistor". 
Robert Struble, President and Chief Executive Officer of iBiquity 
Digital Corp. hailed the decision as a significant milestone on the road 
towards a global standard for AM digital broadcasting. "Digital 
broadcasting offers the potential for new and improved services to AM 
radio listeners who will greatly benefit from the existence of a 
worldwide standard for the transmission and reception of digital 
signals", he said. For manufacturers, it brings a second lease of life 
to older AM technologies with increased market potential for 
transmitters and receivers. It also makes it possible to optimize the 
return on investment for dual technology components for low data rate 
systems applied to narrow-band transmission channels. Considering that 
there are potentially some 2.5 billion radio receivers that will 
ultimately be candidates for replacement, of which some 700 million for 
shortwavreception, combined with an estimated 1000 transmitters 
worldwide, the benefit for equipment and semiconductor manufacturers is 
  For broadcasters, the new technology means that they will be able to 
bring FM quality to AM bands at substantially lower costs. Because the 
new technology is accommodating existing frequency plans, they will be 
able to modify and continue to use their existing transmitters provided 
they are fairly modern. Digital AM will also be much more spectrum-
efficient, making it possible to reduce the power of transmitters by as 
much as 25% while maintaining the same coverage area. Broadcasters will 
also be able to transmit programmes in two languages, a plus in 
bilingual countries or in border zones between countries that use 
different languages.
  Better audio quality and value-added services for listeners (data, 
text or still images) will also translate into increased audience 
interest and increased advertising revenue as a result and new business 
opportunities. This integration of audio and wireless data transmission 
will enable a variety of consumer applications, such as station and 
programme content, local traffic and weather information, news and much 
more. Because the digital signal is more reliable and robust, it can be 
nearly interference-free. Receivers will tune to the best possible 
reception quality of a given station, based on the strength of the 
signal and the AFS (Automatic Frequency Switching) system, within any of 
the long, medium and shortwave bands.
  Digital AM radio is expected to reach mass market by 2003. In the 
transition period, transmitters and receivers will handle both analogue 
and digital signals, thus enabling broadcasters who have large 
operations in the AM band to opt for simulcast to continue serving their 
customers while building a new market. Manufacturers are expected to 
provide the market with multistandard receivers to enable the 
simultaneous reception of analogue AM and FM as well as digital AM 
stations. In vacant AM channels, broadcasters will be able to launch 
full digital AM as the receivers will recognize both analogue and 
digital signals.
  The approval of a worldwide standard should give the possibility to 
achieve economies of scale in the production and deployment of 
transmitters and receivers with potentially lower costs to consumers 
while giving broadcasters the flexibility to migrate to digital AM radio 
according to market demand.

  Below from one of the email [actually a weather list] that I belong 
  The USA Disaster Situation Report
  Active Sun Sending Storms Towards Earth
  A major solar flare occurred beginning on Thanksgiving evening, 
November 23 at 10:02 p.m. MST (24/0502 UT), with a second happening ten 
hours later on November 24 at 8:13 a.m. MST (24/1513 UT), according to 
NOAA's Space Environment Center in Boulder, Colo. Forecasters say that 
solar activity is likely to continue at moderate to high levels for the 
next several days. As a result of this activity, a geomagnetic storm is 
expected to reach Earth on the evening of Saturday, November 25 or 
Sunday, November 26.  "A drastic increase in the solar wind, or a shock 
wave, impacts the Earth's magnetic field, and typically, signifies the 
onset of the geomagnetic storm," forecaster Bill Murtagh said.  
Forecasters expect perhaps as many as four shock waves arriving in a 24-
hour period this weekend.  Geomagnetic storms travel at a rate of 1-3 
million miles per hour.
  Strong geomagnetic storms can cause satellites to experience surface 
charging and orientation problems and power systems can also be 
affected. Such storms can also interfere with high frequency radio 
communications. The initial solar flares already caused radio blackouts 
on the sunlit side of the Earth for about an hour.
  Using NOAA's Space Weather Scales, the geomagnetic storm is predicted 
to be a strong  storm (G 3), with the possibility that the storm may 
reach higher levels as the event progresses.  "The rapid-fire sequence 
of events is unlike anything we've seen thus far, during this solar 
cycle," said Murtagh.  According to forecaster Larry Combs, the danger 
lies in the duration of the storms.  "We've had several flares and 
Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) in the past 36 hours, and if that 
continues, the constant bombardment of the Earth by the enhanced solar 
wind, could affect power systems and satellites."  
  The flares that produced these storms were categorized by forecasters
as X-2 events, X being the highest category of flares possible.  The 
flares occurred in the north central area of the sun, which is expected 
to continue to be visible for the next seven days.  There is, therefore, 
a distinct possibility of more activity occurring.  "The region that 
produced these flares continues to grow and increase in complexity," 
Murtagh said. "In fact, it's almost doubled in size since yesterday."
  The solar wind and particles produced as a result of these flares can 
produce Auroral Borealis, or northern lights as far down as Illinois and 
Oregon (typically 50 degrees geomagnetic latitude.)

** BRAZIL [and non]. FIRST ILHA COMPRIDA DX-CAMP  From next 8th to 10th 
December, the DX Clube do Brasil and the Comité Brasileiro de 
Radioescutas promote the 1. Ilha Comprida DX-Camp, supported by Pousada 
del Sol (Hotel), and Prefeitura Municipal de Ilha Comprida. The hotel 
(Pousada del Sol) is 50 meters from the beach (Atlantic Ocean), and will 
be closed for the DX-Camp on that week-end. Ilha Comprida is a little 
city 240 km from São Paulo, and it is a long island (74 km x 3 km). 74 
km with just one beach!!!!! Good for beverages!!!!!!
  It is our first DX-Camp experience in Ilha Comprida. During 2000, for 
4 or 5 times, we verified that this is an excellent place for DX... good 
signals, no electric noise. We wiil try to catch (DX) new world 
radiostations in mediumwave, longwave (not so explored in Brazil), FM 
and TV. Many Dx-ers will be in Ilha Comprida with their loop antennas, 
active antennas, it is programmed to test new beverage antennas. Also 
antennas for FM- and TV-DX. We expect to hear again many FM stations 
from the Caribbean. A good thing: In Ilha Comprida there are no local MW 
and FM stations (the nearest transmits with 250 W from Registro, maybe 
75 km distant).
  We hope to have a good time, with good radiofriends from many distant 
Brazilian cities. After the DX-Camp we will relate the results. Contact:

  John Tudenham had asked me about my local KTOZ-1060--the all 
"volunteer" commercial station... they're asking for listener donations 
to put up a tower for night operation... so I called 'em and got the 
scoop.  A couple of years ago KTOZ's tower got knocked over by an errant 
tractor or something.  So they've been operating on a TEMPORARY tower 
all this time. They're trying to raise money to put up a new site to the 
east of Springfield... which will be a TWO-TOWER directional array.  
When they applied for that upgrade, they also applied for 24-hour 
operation, with 5kW days and reduced power nights (they're currently 500 
watts daytime only). Supposedly it's received FCC approval--that's what 
the guy at the station says, anyway--so now they're attempting to raise 
the funds to actually do the job.
  Now, it gets complicated here... we have a "Branson Information Radio" 
format during the daytime on KLFJ-1550... the owners are in Branson but 
since the transmitter city-of-license is Springfield, they've worked out 
an agreement with the KTOZ folks here: their local offices are shared 
with KTOZ, and the programming is run out of KTOZ's studios.  Since KLFJ 
goes down below 100 watts at night, it was useless to the Branson 
hucksters as a TIS for them.  So as part of their deal with KTOZ, they 
allow KTOZ programming to take over sunset to sunrise (i.e. when KTOZ-
1060 is off the air).  Not sure what will happen if and when KTOZ gets 
up and running on 1060 fulltime.
  (And this doesn't take into account KIDS-1340, which runs a SEPARATE 
but similar "Branson Information Radio" TIS format during certain 
daytime hours, along with the Jim Rome Show 11am-2pm, and Sports Fan 
Radio Network starting at 6pm... it's owned by Meyer Communications, 
which runs KWTO-560!)

 ** INTERNATIONAL WATERS. United Kingdom/Netherlands: Wireless Group in 
talks over LW offshore station | Text of press release by the UK- based 
Wireless Group PLC on 23rd November
  The Wireless Group plc ('TWG'), the UK's fourth largest radio group, 
announced today that it has entered into exclusive negotiations to 
acquire a 33-per-cent stake in Delta Radio, a recently-formed commercial 
radio group whose principal asset is a new national analogue radio 
station. In return for its 33-per-cent stake, TWG will undertake the 
management of the station, including programming, sales and logistics - 
there is no cash consideration payable.
  The service, to be broadcast as 171 The Lounge, [on 171 kHz longwave] 
will be launched in 2002 under licence from the Dutch government, on a 
recently-released longwave frequency to a potential UK audience of over 
40m. The transmission facility will:
- be built off the Dutch coast near Zeeland
- include two masts each half again as tall as the Eiffel Tower
- cover a site with a footprint larger than 75 football pitches
  Whilst 171 The Lounge will not be regulated under UK law, TWG will 
ensure that the station respects UK copyright and broadcast content 
codes and complies with Advertising Standards Authority guidelines. The 
station will be music intensive, featuring the best easy listening and 
melodic songs of the past 40 years with key artists including Frank 
Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Dean Martin, Simply Red, The Carpenters, 
Gabrielle and Neil Diamond. This format is an extension of TWG's digital 
format, also called The Lounge, targeting an audience similar to that of 
BBC Radio 2 - "the UK's most popular radio station".
  To capitalize on the advertising potential of this highly attractive 
target audience, Impact, TWG's award winning advertising sales house, 
will represent The Lounge. This will provide advertisers with access to 
this previously unavailable national audience and will complement the 
younger and predominantly male audience targeted by TWG's other national 
station, talkSPORT.
  Under the terms of the agreement, TWG will undertake the management of 
the station's programming and advertising sales. TWG will not be 
involved in funding the new station, which will be financed via separate 
agreements with the other shareholders. The Lounge is expected to break 
even within three years of launch. This transaction is consistent with 
The Wireless Group's stated strategy of capturing greater market share 
by investing in additional radio assets.
  Commenting on today's announcement Kelvin MacKenzie, Chairman and 
Chief Executive of The Wireless Group, said: "Creating a new offshore 
radio station is an exciting and innovative way to increase our national 
presence. Since its relaunch in January, our national station talkSPORT 
has proved adept at targeting young men, giving advertisers access to a 
specific demographic group. We are now targeting another valuable 
demographic. The Lounge will give our national sales team a 
complementary sell, offering advertisers access to an older audience as 
well as to women. Commercial national radio is a concept that listeners, 
advertisers and investors understand. Since national commercial radio 
was introduced to the UK in the early 1990s its share of total UK 
advertising has grown from 2 to 6 per cent - almost entirely down to 
increased national revenues. We expect to see that figure grow."
  Dr Wayne Burt, chairman of Delta Radio Holdings NV, said: "Delta, 
together with TWG, is now able to embark upon its next stage of 
development which is to bring to fruition Delta Radio as a national 
broadcast station. TWG brings first-class radio management, programming 
and sales expertise, which will assist in maximizing the radio broadcast 
potential of Delta Radio's powerful and unique transmission platform."

 ** INTERNATIONAL WATERS. Regarding "Delta Radio, a recently-formed 
commercial radio group": It is interesting to note that "recently" can 
refer to a period of a couple of years. I remember that I already back 
in 1995 called Deutschlandradio after reading that the Dutch government 
demands a withdrawal of the Zehlendorf transmitter from the 177 
frequency. As well-known Zehlendorf and the Saarlouis-Felsberg 
transmitter of Europe 1 are operating with an offset of 3 kHz each, 
Zehlendorf on 177 and Felsberg on 183. Both transmitters are scheduled 
for 180 but such a co-channel operation would result in a horrible mess 
in large parts of Germany, and this problem was solved by the offset 
arrangement. Five years ago I was told, "we will stay on 177 until we 
got a letter with a seal, showing an eagle". Meanwhile the Dutch 
authorities no longer favour the 171 kHz project and hence are no longer 
interested in forcing Zehlendorf off 177. Instead Delta-Radio failed in 
establishing a transmitter site ashore, resulting in the expensive 
project of a platform in the North Sea (Kai Ludwig, Germany, Nov 25, DX 
  ** INTERNATIONAL WATERS [non]. Glenn, I'd like to take issue with your 
description of the site of this station as "International Waters". As 
far as I am aware the proposed site is within Dutch territorial waters.
  The Times newspaper on Friday carried a story stating that the 
proposed station would be able to reach 40 million people in the UK. It 
goes on to say that "long wave radio services with poor signals after 
dark, have not had an easy time in the UK." An example of the ignorance 
of the mass media generally about radio. BBC Radio 4 / Radio 2 / Light 
Programme has covered the whole of the UK very successfully, day & night 
for all of my life, and no doubt long before, on 1500m / 1512m long 
wave. The Times goes on to say "Atlantic 252, broadcasting to the UK on 
long wave from the Irish Republic, has not posed a major threat to 
existing broadcasters."
  Again, I think this is a rather ignorant analysis. Atlantic 252 faces 
two insurmountable problems that the Delta station would not. Firstly, 
Atlantic is simply in the wrong place. The largest concentration of 
population (and therefore target audience) is in London and the South-
East. Atlantic broadcasts from the North-West. Secondly, as soon as 
night draws on Atlantic is swamped by Algeria in much of the country, 
there is nothing on 171 that poses a similar threat. Whatever problems 
it might have, I don't think being heard would be a problem. Having said 
all that, I don't think the project will ever see the light of day. Keep 
up the Good Work! (Nicholas Mead, UK, Nov 26, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

facilities already since about three years; there was a further 
expansion especially of the mediumwave operations in the last year. The 
report does not mention the topic of foreign clients at all. One should 
keep in mind that the 999 mediumwave frequency from Grigoriopol` is 
actually the main channel of Radio Moldova Chisinau).
  However, when Pridnestrovye got under control of the separatist 
authorities at Tiraspol` they cancelled the Radio Moldova transmissions 
and replaced them by their own Radio Pridnestrovye programming, which 
was widely considered a clandestine operation.
  Meanwhile Radio Pridnestrovye uses the lower powered 1467 channel 
instead, while 999 now carries various foreign stations like Deutsche 
Welle or Trans World Radio. In other words, the operation of the 
Grigoriopol` transmitters by the Tiraspol` administration is no longer 
considered as illegal frequency piracy; instead we have almost a de-
facto acknowledgement of Pridnestrovye as an independent state. As well-
known, the airtime business at Grigoriopol` now includes alongside with 
the 999 and 1548 mediumwave channels also the shortwave capacity, which 
is sold by Merlin. Regards, (Kai Ludwig, Germany, Nov 25, DX LISTENING 
  ** RUSSIA [non]. Hi Glenn, evidently the currently silent 7180 channel 
of VoR still originates from Grigoriopol`, contrary to my previous 
assumption. Most likely the site is completely off air at present; not 
only both 7125 and 7180 are silent but also all mediumwave channels, at 
least 999 and 1548, which are unmistakable here in Germany and also in 
use by Deutsche Welle and Trans World Radio. Any major problem must 
prevent Grigoriopol` from operating any transmitter; otherwise they 
would certainly keep DW and TWR on air. Regards, (Kai Ludwig, Dec 3, DX 
  ** RUSSIA [non]. Moldova: Maiac radio center update | According to a 
private TV station in Moldova, the icestorm last week resulted in the 
collapse of a "200 meter" mast at the Maiac transmitting center. 
Freezing rain caused a cover of ice with a thickness of up to 32mm in 
the region. There is currently no information available about further 
damages to buildings or antennas as a result of the crash. This would be 
the second mast which crashed at the center, acc. to Russian sources a 
350 meter mast (which was earlier used for longwave 234 kHz) fell down 
in another incident during the last years. (Bernd Trutenau, Vilnius, 
Lithuania, MWINFO Dec 3 via DXLD)
  ** RUSSIA. No access to mass media Far East region power blackout | 
Text of report by Radio Russia on 23rd November
  People in the town of Belogorsk in Amur Region have not been able to 
watch TV and listen to Radio Russia since 1st November. The town has a 
population of 80,000 people. Skovorodinskiy, Rovenenskiy, 
Konstantinovskiy and other districts in Amur Region are faced with a 
similar situation. Restrictions have also been imposed on energy supply 
to the Blagoveshchensk radio and television rebroadcasting centre. 
People in the region's capital and neighbouring areas were unable to 
watch Russia TV channel and Russian Public Television for five hours 
during day time in the past four days.
  Radio Russia is no longer available on longwave anywhere in Amur 
Region because energy companies have cut off supplies to the 
Konstantinogradovskiy radio centre, the largest in Far East. The 
Amurenergo joint-stock company has imposed restrictions on the supply of 
electricity to the Blagoveshchensk mediumwave radio transmitter and as a 
result of that the local radio station Amurskaya Volna cannot broadcast 
its programmes in full. Day in, day out, the territory of Amur Region is 
gradually becoming a zone of information silence. The reason for such 
categorical measures taken by the Amurenergo is the federal electricity 
debt to the tune of 20m roubles. Not even a part of this debt has been 
repaid. Source: Radio Russia, Moscow, in Russian 0800 gmt 23 Nov 00 (via

  ** U S A. Regarding the report that WSM, 650, Nashville TN, has turned 
off its C-QUAM stereo: I was in Nashville last summer and think it`s a 
darn shame. On my AM stereo receiver, WSM almost rivaled FM quality. The 
stereo separation was second to none, better than some Chicago stations, 
although on that receiver the frequency response was not of FM quality. 
On the other hand, back in Houston, KTRH, 740 must have compressed their 
bandwidth to 4 kHz, sounds terrible, although it does allow WSB, 750, 
Atlanta to be heard (George Thurman, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Dec. 1's This American Life http://www.thislife.org/ (an archived 
program from Feb. '96) had 2 great (15 minute) segments about being in 
(being a DJ on) radio.  I enjoyed hearing them again! 
  They appear in the second half of the show.
  Chet Copeland/ NY,NY
  "Act Two. Baltimore, circa 1956. Ira with tapes of his own father, who 
was a radio deejay in the mid-1950's. Ira's father gave up spinning 
records when he decided he couldn't make a decent living at it, and for 
over a decade he was against his son going into radio, not wanting his 
son to waste time the way he did. (14 minutes) Song: "Personal 
Possession" Nat King Cole
  Act Three. Chicago, in the 1960's. Nora Moreno with tapes of her 
father, a pioneer in Spanish-language broadcasting in America. Her 
mother fell in love with her father because of his poetic character on 
the radio, but in real life, the very things that attracted her to him 
over the radio, drove them apart. (13 minutes)"
