** CUBA. 15140, June 20 at 1906, RHC is on, had been missing from here
for several days, S7/S8 and hard to understand. At first sounds like
Spanish intonation instead of English but maybe just heavy accent as
next speaker recognizably English. Modulation is also breaking up.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9395 // 9455, June 20 at 0632, WRMIs parallel this hour
during Supreme Master TV environmental cult, introducing ``worldwide
weather`` --- and then nothing but music! Obviously video grafix only.
Not such a bright idea to put TV soundtrack on radio without adapting!
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2248)

** U S A. 15770, Thu June 20 at 2149, WRMI presumably `On the Media`
as now sked, quick check during WOR produxion pause to run the studio
AC, discussing Les Moonves, ex-CEO of CBS, who has been in trouble
again. Would OTM end at 2154 as its podcasts are typically 54 minutes
long, allowing for news on the hour? No, still going at 2155 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5130+, June 20 at 0628, A*ATT of WBCQ is still off again,
tsk4, not even a JBA carrier direct (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO
2248)

** U S A. 1130 kHz, June 20 at 1859 UT, ``Your home for Wichita`s
classic hits, 104.1 and 1130 AM, KLEY``, and music. So the silly
sportstalk I heard about golf was aberrant, whew. It now has a street
address in Wichita, but site at Wellington barely exceeds Wichita at
`local` level, and you should see the tiny nighttime coverage if were
really one watt; at radio-locator.com which also slogans it ``Music
You Love`` as also on own website, ``From the 70`s 80`s & 90`s``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7260, June 20 at 0626, RV remains on air with music S8/S9
direct. I can always tell whether it`s off, but never good enough for
comprehensible listening (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2248)

** CUBA. 5025, June 19 at 0637, S9+35/45 of dead air from R. Rebelde.
Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba. The other side:

``The Other Face of Hunger in Cuba --- 'Hunger has two faces, but it
shows one and hides the other. Cubans today are racked by both at the
same time, subjugated by a government that deliberately starves its
own people.'
Roberto Álvarez Quiñones, Miami 18 Jun 2024 - 16:50 CEST

Yes, Castroism causes hunger with premeditation and perfidy, because
this scourge is not due to a war, or a natural catastrophe, but rather
to fact that a well-fed Raúl Castro and his rotund accomplices refuse
to liberate agriculture and restore the elemental freedoms to which
all the peoples of the world are entitled, for fear of losing the
power and dolce vita that they and their families enjoy...``
https://diariodecuba.com/cuba/1718722206_55492.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. Re 92.7, OKC traffic report not // 92.5 KOMA: KOMA does
have a translator on 92.9 to analogize its HD2 called The Edge, per
WTFDA: ``K225BN relays:KOMA-HD2 92.9 OKLAHOMA CITY OK USA 0.2 0.2
267.7 267.7 35-32-51 97-29-30 188C ROCK 92.9 THE EDGE 139270`` --
could the 92.9 have been off-frequency? Not necessarily right on 92.7.
Or is there any way an HD2 of 92.5 might be audible somehow on an old
non-HD analog caradio tuned to the side? And whatever became of
subcarriers? (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 95.7 & 107.1, June 19 at 0139, 0346, 0430, 0519, 0627 UT
chex, Enid stations still dead air but showing static RDS of __KXLS__
and __KNID__; finally resumed modulating by 1452 check. I suspect long
delays in fixing such easy? problems are caused by no CE of their own,
rather having to call upon contract engineer from some other city;
evenmoreso the 93.9 KIMY case, with no local origination, merely a
satellite which cannot even be monitored OTA at HQ (Glenn Hauser,
Enid, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Wed June 19 at 2201, token English from SNR, now
again with cohostesses Amy Egan and Marilyn Quintana, S9+20/30 direct
and the other three detectable. It`s the tenth anniversary of
coronation of King Felipe after his disgraced father abdicated;
something about calls for dissolving the Balearic government; air
pollution is the second largest cause of death worldwide. 2209 feature
interview about babies stolen during the Franco regime (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785.009, June 19 at 2200, VOT English not off the air,
s/on pretending to be 1230 on 17620, S8/S9 direct but insufficient vs
S5/S7 noise level. 2232 tune-in via UTwente when measured, S9+40/50 VG
during song; 2234 multi-lingual ID filler reel; 2236 song; 2240
`The Middle East and Turkey`, written by some non-Turkish-named expert
on how ME is the world`s center of energy produxion; really?! 2246
song. 2249 ``always-by-your-side`` promo, song which is chopped off
the air at 2252.8* before any s/off announcement or IS. Something`s
always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2247 monitoring: confirmed
Wednesday June 19 at 1954 the 1930 on SW Gold Radio, Germany, into
UTwente: S9+15 on 6160.001, S9+10/15 on 3975.004.

Also confirmed Wednesday June 19 on WBCQ 7490 -76 Hz = 7489.924, S7/S9
into Maryland SDR, but NO signal when checked first direct, far too
low frequency in summer daytime over further path. Next:

0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S;
1630 UT Thursday SW Radio, Germany 6160.

As noncommercial services, financial support appreciated. By MO or

** U S A. 5130+, June 19 at 0638, A*ATT from WBCQ is OFF again, tsk2.
Also absent into PEI SDR, June 19 at 1608, tsk3. Also no signal at
1623 into NH SDR, tsk4 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15150, June 19 at 0645, WMLK is back on and even modulating,
but JBA S7/S8 direct. Huge variations in strength depending on
nighttime MUF fluxuations (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1130 kHz, June 19 at 2041 UT, KLEY Wellington KS instead of
rock music, silly ballgame sportstalk, about golf, and it`s not net
but local, mentioning KLEY in passing. Format change or aberration?
Has managed to remain on air whenever checked since last outage (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 0050 UT June 20

Hauser
** KOREA NORTH. 15180, June 18 at 0651, classical piano music with
orchestra, S9, brief announcement in unknown language, 0655 to open
carrier. Aoki shows VOK in French until 0657 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SLOVAKIA [non]. 15770, June 18 at 0654, Spanish about Eslovaquia on
WRMI, S7/S9, RSI sked daily at 0630; the 0030 on 5010 would be more
convenient (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785.009, June 18 at *2200 + a few sex, JBA carrier direct
from VOT comes on. But tuning UTwente at 2223, NO signal. Recheck 2256
when measured, now it`s on with IS, IDs in German, S9+35/45, 2300
timesignal 2 sex late, and opening extraneous German. Something`s
always erroneous at Emirler. 2305.5* chopoff, no finesse (June 17 amid
FM DX opening, I missed checking this, nor Spain) (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2247 monitoring: confirmed UT
Tuesday June 18 at 0330 on WRMI 7780, S9/+15 into Louisiana SDR.

Also confirmed Tuesday June 18 at 1300 on WRMI 9955, S9 direct, no
jamming audible. Next:

2330 UT Tuesday WRMI 9395 to NNW;
2330 UT Tuesday SW Radio, Germany 3975;
1930 UT Wednesday SW Radio, Germany 3975 & 6160;
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW;

** U S A. 5850, June 18 at 0702, WRMI-12 is unusually absent instead
of TOMBS, no loss. But would be a loss if still off instead of System
D at 08-09 & 12-13 UT, System F at 10-11 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15150, June 18 at 0650, NO signal from WMLK; but plenty of
others on band. Must have decided to turn it off instead of dead air
as noted 26 hours ago (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Re no 15610 or 12050: ``Glenn, Apologies for not providing a
timely reply. WEWN has maintenance concerns and we hope to perform the
necessary corrections and be back on as soon as possible. Thanks for
the inquiry. Hope you are doing well. Glen`` Tapley -- a single N in
his name, June 18 (via Glenn Hauser, WOR)

** U S A. With 100 MHz MUF spike NW of here, another try for Es FM DX,
June 18 from 2235 UT on caradio: no Es but some area obs as far as
Nebraska:

93.5 at 2235, ``weather for Red Dirt (nation?), on My Country 93.5:
KKDT Burdett KS 95/95 kW, normal fringer; 2239 tone and NWS warning,
f/out. I thought Red Dirt was more of an Okie thing.

93.9 at 2237, KIMY Watonga OK has *finally* resumed modulating after
5+ days of dead air. Plugs Xmas music all during July on one of The
Gospel Station streams.

95.7 at 2238 and still past 2322, dead air in $ tereo from KXLS Lahoma
OK, and of course also on co-located sibstation 107.1 KNID North Enid.
We have only two commercial radio clusters here and this one keeps
failing.

93.1 at 2242, ``93.1 The River, Nebraska`s country station`` surpasses
usual Kansan in the way. Probably to do with storm front across
central KS and NE. This is: KRVN-FM Lexington, 100/100 kW, related to
the 880 AM station. 514 km/319 stmi

101.3 at 2245, ``Oklahoma`s best country, K-Law 101`` vs heavy CCI
from Wichita. 100/100 kW, KLAW Lawton.

92.7 at 2248, OKC traffic report in sideband of but not // 92.5 KOMA.
Oops, no such translator listed. Is it really bleeding out of the 92.5
signal? Very distorted (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

Hauser
** BRAZIL. 9665v, June 17 at 0418, S9+10 in Brazuguese so RVM is on
again past local midnight. Has been varying less away from nominal
lately (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [and non]. 15785, June 17 at 0434, S3/S5 seems English, i.e.
CRI via Xianyang 59 site, 500 kW at 354 degrees, from east-central
China, almost due north targeting Siberia, why? Also English at 0437
on 17840, i.e. CRI Beijing site also for Russia, why? Anyhow, 16m is
full of signals mostly weaker than this, tnx to the Solsticial
Midnight Sun, too late to chase them all down. Surely all from
Hemisphere East -- or almost, as Woofferton, Noblejas, Bechar and
Bamako are a bit West of Greenwich Meridian.

But also 13m on 21530, 21570, 21800, mostly CNR1 jammers. Also at
0439, algo on 18985 and weaker 18970 - the latter CNR1 jammer/SOH, the
former unlisted. By 1500 UT, in broad sunlight, however, hardly
anything on 16m except a bit of WRMI 17790 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 4765, June 17 at 0411, R. Progreso still on with music, S9+30
but undermodulated. Sked supposedly only until local midnight,
*0030-0400*. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba. Always seemed
strange such a limited sked, rather than reaching for 24h like sibling
5025 R. Rebelde, first among equals, but which is gone again now
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6000, June 17 at 0414, RHC strong but JBM, intonation seems
more like Spanish than English. 15230, June 17 at 0432, this RHC on
late, S9+10 but suptorted, definitely in English; without a second
receiver at hand, can`t confirm whether // 6000. 15230, of course is
never a scheduled English frequency. Something`s always wrong at RHC
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 9700, June 17 at 0419, S9+40 of dead air, obviously RHC
intermittent frequency, when active turned off sometime after 0400
whenever they get around to it. Something`s always wrong at rHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. 1570 kHz, UT Monday June 17 at 0410, Spanish dominating,
presumably XERF, in weekly `La Hora Nacional`, fed govt must-carry
hour weekly Sundays at 10 pm local = 0400 UT Mondays since DST has
been dismissed in Mex. Quick check of 1050 XEG, maybe also LHN, but
not //, or at least not synchronized. And 6185? Marimba music, R.
Educación with something else. Need further chex. Also XERF may be on
CDT bleeding over the border? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. [Continued from USA] Sporadic E FM DX: After 0000 UT June
18, DXMAP shows more likely across central USA, but the car is in use
elsewhere. ASAP, I`m back at the dial, starting immediately with:

88.1 at 0025, Spanish talkshow overriding Okies, political about
recent elexions, obviously Mexican. At 0034, non ID as ``88.1 FM`` --
we knew that already, and only that!, and adstring including Soriana.
No local clues. There are 16 XH on 88.1 in the WTFDA FMDB, two of them
with 88.1 in their slogan, but not all by itself. However, PTA is CDMX
as in the only other simullog in this session, XEQ below. In that
case, likely on 88.1 is XHRED-FM 95/95 kW, slogan listed as ``La
Octava`` -- alluding to the eights in its MHz?

92.9 at 0028, Spanish ads and PSAs, two stations mixing; fading in and
out; 0029 one of them IDs as ``La Ke Buena, 92.9``. Shortly news
including about San Pedro Garza García, Nuevo León, a suburb of
Monterrey; there is one 92.9 elsewhere in NL. 0036 sped up hi-pitched
funny voice taking calls. All gone by 0041. In this case for sure it`s
XEQ-FM, CDMX, 79.07/79.07 kW, the only Mex in the DB with Buena in its
slogan: and yes, they insist on spelling it Ke instead of Qué. 1890
km/1174 stmi (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 93.9, June 17 at 1950 UT, *still* dead air in $ tereo into
caradio, but much weaker than usual; on the way to zero kW too? Now
96+ hours into this futility first noted June 13, from KIMY Watonga.
Streaming still worx via website and a whole buncha platforms, so who
cares about 93.9? Map https://www.thegospelstation.com/ shows a buncha
other FM outlets around OK and TX panhandle, AR and TN. Radio-locator
mentions only one, the long-gone 93.1 in Enid. HQ address in Ada OK,
with 105.1, but which is a mere 75-watt translator of KTGS 88.3, which
is 5.5/5.5 kW in Tishomingo OK. That must really be the net`s
originator, calls matching slogan (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR) See also
USA: FMDX

** OKLAHOMA. RF 18, June 17 circa 1530 UT, BAD signal or breaking up
from ION in OKC, ``62`` KOPX-TV, unusual. Unless underpowered, would
be DX QRM: some area tropo on APRS map, but no sign of DX on any other
`open` channel. So what other 18s are there around here? per FCC TV
Query, in OK, only four translators in Grandfield, Hollis, Seiling,
Strong City. In KS, only one LD, in Liberal. I give up at this point
rather than delving into other adjacent states, NM, TX, AR, MO; let
alone almost-adjacent CO, LA. Virtual 62-5 only is of interest with
Scripps News, ex-Newsy which is deliberately uncabled (Glenn Hauser,
Enid, WOR)

** ROMANIA. 11740, June 17 at 0422, S9+20/30 of heavy beat rock. EiBi
shows RRI Galbeni in Romanian hour for S Europe; plus French at
0500-0530 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 11785.009, Sunday June 16 at 2159, VOT English not off the
air, S9+40/45 into UTwente; not checked direct. News with periodic
theme sounders to remind us it`s news, altho surely it`s olds,
recorded not later than 1245 UT. Then `Weekly Analysis` about the PKK
terrorists until 2224, ``Always-by-your-side`` ptomo, and start
`Letterbox`. As usual, host is totally unprepared, letter after letter
from same listeners in India. Almost everyone is requesting QSLs. Also
one offers a Buddhist prayer. Ralf Urbanski from Germany. One Indian
reports on 7275, which is the N American frequency at 0300. . Andrei
Kuznetsov, who must be Russian, but in Riga ``Letonia``, i.e.
Latvia.

Host finally spells his name, Halil Sarikaya, which means yellow rock.
Get rid of that dot on the i in surname! Lady who sends QSLs doesn`t
speak English, and is way off somewhere else in the vast TRT
buildings: says 6000 work in Ankara and 4000 more elsewhere; have lots
of dining rooms, sports facilities for staff. Then from Ricky Hines,
again! Somewhere in USA and won`t give his postal address [South
Dakota]. Halil wishes he could stop smoking and doesn`t like to be
reminded of health risks, like for World anti-Tobacco Day every May
31. Someone makes Eid wishes. Finally someone from Poland. 2247 time`s
up, I love you all, Goodbye. 2248.5 song which goes into spoken word,
wonder about what? Then 2252 L`Box outro=intro. 2253 Ms Badax {Efsun
Duri Elgeler, per Alan Holder} s/off as if 17620 at 1230. 2254 IS
*almost once* and chopoff, no finesse (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K [non]. 13810, June 17 at 0425, M&M conversation in very
gutteral language not Arabic, S9+30/40 and the SSOB: because it`s
MADAGASCAR with BBC Somali M-F at 0400-0430 per EiBi (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2247 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
June 16 at 2000 on WRN Europe webcast, and WRMI webcast-only.

Also confirmed Sunday June 16 at 2157 the 2130 on SW Gold Radio,

noisy into Georgia; worse S7/S9 into Querétaro; best S7/9+10 into
Maurice, Louisiana.

** U S A. 5085, UT Monday June 17 at 0410, WTWW is already off again
on Sunday night (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5130+v, June 17 at 0413, WBCQ A*ATT is still not off the
air, JBA direct (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 15150, June 17 at 0428, S9+10/20 open carrier: must be WMLK,
so I may hear their sign-on at 0430 since it`s not a Sabbathday: NOT!
still dead air past 0430 and at next check 0443. Per EiBi & Aoki
supposed to start at 0400. Does a human being turn it on and never
notice there be no modulation? Or is it all automated, zzz? Are you
there/wake up, operating engineer Gary A. McAvin per WRTH (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Finally a sporadic E FM DX opening now at the peak? of the
season; standard boilerplate applies about my methods and objectives
of DXing. All times and dates strictly UT, June 17:

90.1 at 2127 UT, I have KUCO classical music in the backgroud on the
DX-392 when it`s overcome by a pledge drive from WGCU; 2130 ATC, 2132
cut to WGCU news about Fort Myers. It`s only 4.4/4.4 kW. Then I head
for the caradio! 1866 km/1160 stmi

93.1 at 2137, 2154, 2204, dead air in $ tereo as I have been hearing
lately, maybe not Es, but like Es, it fades out completely between
full-quieting peaks. If it`s a FL PTA as above, there are only two
full-powers in state, WFEZ Miami, 98/98 kW; and WKRO-FM Port Orange,
24.5./24.5 kW, way up next to Daytona Beach. Is anyone aware of a
deadair 93.1 anywhere?

From listings in WTFDA and Radio-locator, you might conclude 93.1 be
merely K226BR, Enid, 250/250 watt translator of KIMY 93.9. It`s been
off the air for years! In May *2013* I said it had been gone for a few
weeks; but apparently still licensed, and its dead air would correlate
with the deadair on KIMY, but hardly a constant local signal. Only
other Okies on 93.1 are KWLB Red Oak 19.5/19.5 kW, but way off in the
SE near Wilburton; and K226CW, 170/170 watt translator in Stillwater,
of KOKP 1020, Perry, Triple Play Sports. Now that could be it.
Stillwater: 80/50

93.5 at 2140, ``Revolution 9-3-5``, i.e. WBGF Belle Glade FL, 24/24
kW. Alludes to dance format, not politix! 1950/1212

94.5 at 2142, hard rock on a frequency `open` for DX, not much around
here. The three full-powers in FL are WARO Naples 99/99 kW, classic
rock; WFLF-FM Parker 100/100 kW, rock; and WCFB Daytona Beach 97.5/100
kW, urban AC. Naples is the one closest to 93.5 Belle Glade, 2 minutes
ago and to Ft Myers, 1 minute later. Parker is allegedly near Pánama
City, way up in the panhandle per map key altho I don`t see it.
Naples: 1902/1182

95.3 at 2143, rock, ``95-3 The Beach``: that`s WOLZ Fort Myers, 79/79
kW. 1866/1160

103.5 at 2148, ``Power 103.5``, fakeout, is merely KVSP Anadarko OK.
Despite a hot summer afternoon, I`m also faked out by above average,
near-local levels from Ponca and Wichita on 98.7, 99.3, 104.7.

99.3 at 2145, Spanish vs KLOR Ponca City, with a 1-800 number so
likely USA station. This could well be WWCN, Fort Myers Beach, 45/45
kW. In the PTA and the only 99.3 FL SS.
1868/1161

92.7 at 2152, mention US1 and Key West ad: so it`s WEOW 100/100 kW.
2022/1256

After a break, I check again at 2312, but no Es DX. Continued at:
MEXICO (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** VANUATU. 7260, June 17 at 0630, JBA signal signifying that VBTC is
back on air after 5 nights absent; as Ron Howard reports: ```[WOR]
Update - Radio Vanuatu --- Hi Glenn - Have received a quick reply to
my email inquiring what is currently happening with his station being
off the air. Greatly appreciate him taking the time to get back to me
so quickly! Ron (California). His response (2040 UT, June 16):

``Hi Ron, Thanks, we had an issue with a power cut but it is ok now.
We thank you for always listening to us. I will let our radio team
know that they have a regular listener from the States. Thanks,
Cordialement/ Regards,

Searching `Capitaine Blight` indicates that Capt. Bligh, of Bounty
Mutiny fame, is often misspelt, or respelt? in linx to Tahiti, etc.
Nice of the Vanuatuans to name a rue for him, almost? Later Ron
reports:

``7260, R. Vanuatu, 0625-0740 UT, on June 17. Happiness is finding
this station back on the air after a short absence! Fairly heavy
QRN/static`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 0228 UT June 18
