Logs
** KOREA NORTH [and non]. 6040, Oct 18 at 1316, Shiokaze from JAPAN in
Korean talk by woman; over JBA tone pulse jamming, and // 5935 with no
jamming audible. Unlike Ron Howard I seldom can hear any jamming on
these (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA NORTH [non]. 6045, Oct 18 at 1308, songs and Korean talk.
This is listed everywhere (well, Aoki and EiBi, but missing from HFCC)
as National Unity Radio, via Tajikistan at 1200-1458, but this signal
is very much like the east Asian ones peaking now just after sunrise,
including adjacent 6040 from Japan to Korea North; not what I would
expect from faraway and near-transpolar Dushanbe. Would someone please
perform a TDOA on 6045 to pinpoint whence it axually emanate? Aha,
WRTH 2019 info now a year old, says site was tsh = Tamshui, TAIWAN,
which makes a lot more sense propagationally and nearly! (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KOREA SOUTH. 6000, Oct 18 at 1312, RHC with CCI, presumably Echo of
Hope and North Korean jamming, as Ron Howard has reported VOH on 6000
ex-5990 and ex-5995; and Aoki Oct 17 issue also has them both on 6000
only; but, tomorrow?

I take the opportunity Oct 18 at 1317 for a quick survey of the other
VOH/VOP frequencies which have been jumping around. Some are just
carriers, others including noise jamming: 3485, 3915, 3930, 3985,
4450, 6250, 6520, 6605, 9100 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1580, Oct 18 at 1807 UT, KOKB Blackwell is off again.
What is going on with this station? When on it sounds fine with no
technical problems (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 13650, Oct 18 at 2049, RRI in English is on at S6-S8, news
about the EU, Romania has the highest inflation rate. Still no signal
from the other 2030 Tsiganeshti frequency for us, 11850. Also listed
for Europe on Galbeni 6170 and 7315-DRM, not much use here if they be
on. Per HFCC B-19, in 9 days this jumps an hour later to 2130, even
tho we are stuck with DST for another week; and jumps way down to 6170
and 7310 for us, 6030 and 7375 for Europe. But which frequencies will
be missing then? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SPAIN. 11670, Oct 19 at 2048, REE finally active again on fourth
frequency, the one to Africa so better here on all the others: 12030,
11940, 9690. 11670 also noticed yesterday but before that had been
absent for weeks (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2004 monitoring: confirmed first SWBC, Friday
October 18 at 2200 on WRMI, 9955, fair.

Also confirmed UT Saturday October 19 on WRMI 5850, VG S9+20; 7780

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:
http://www.worldofradio.com/radioskd.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330.00, Oct 18 at 2041, WBCQ-6 is on again, S9+20 with WLC
M&M chat about their peculiar religion. At that strength it would seem
to be aimed thisaway rather than thataway as presumably scheduled for
the first few hours (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7490+, UT Sat Oct 19 at 0000, previous program cut to WBCQ
ID and a minute of dead air before 0001 AAAWWW theme WTO starts. Not
much politix this time, mostly AW reveling about what a lucky guy he
is to have such a beautiful wife, and how she runs around in a string
bikini, since it`s so hot in FL unlike ME, provoking envy in some of
the usual callers.

Says the super-station has been testing since last Saturday on 9330
only, starting at 3:30 pm [ET = 1930 UT] until about 10 pm [0200 UT];
until 6 pm [22 UT] to Arabic-speaking countries [but in English!],
then back toward North America. Full bore 500 kW with gain amounting
to 20 megawatts.

Someone wanted AAAWWW to be on the S-S, but he`s noncommittal; maybe
later, but now WLC is entitled to all the airtime. Lots of time
reading P-mail reception reports and apologizing for late replies, and
then some e-mail. Canned AW ID interrupts live AW at 0100 for Hal
Turner to start on time. John Carver`s report from mid-North Indiana:

``Very sorry, Glenn. Can't copy 7490 this evening and have checked the
other frequencies and can't find it anywhere else. John``

O, before 2400 I checked all the frequencies: 9330 vamp music and
restarted WLC; 5130 weak and presumably with anothershow as usual;
6160 no signal; 3265- maybe a JBA carrier; but 7490+ sufficient here,
altho I then switched to webcast since I`m at the computer (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 620, Oct 18 at 1235 UT, signal from SSE in Spanish. Must be
KEXB Dallas, which some months ago became split-personality, Spanish
religion overnight, still businews in English overdays. Now Spanish
has expanded, overtaken? Checked again at 1812 UT, still Spanish as
Radio Luz, all-talk sounding like infomercial with religious
overtones, a (972) area code and then a different one. Break at 1900
UT for legal ID in English as KTNO, Plano, a Salem station. That has
been the one on 1440! So they must have flipped. And into outright
preaching.

FCC AM Query confirms that only yesterday, Oct 17, did the 1440
station change calls from KTNO to KEXB. (Before 3/15/1994 it was
originally KDNT --- I remember, that was in Denton, another town too
close to The Metroplex to be able to hold on to its local radio
station succumbing to giant sucking --- like Wichita Falls which lost
at least two including the original 620, KWFT).

KEXB 1440 is licensed to Inspiration Media of Texas LLC, University
Park. 620, KTNO licensee is named merely Inspiration. Nothing in FCC
about either pertaining to Salem as I heard announced on 620.

Radio-locator.com is confused about which be which:

``KEXB-AM 1440 kHz
University Park, Texas
"Experts In Business"
Station Format: Business News``

Website:
https://620amkexb.com/

But that site now displays:

``620 KEXB Business Talk is no longer available. Thanks for listening
to the station over the past 8 years. Please check out one of the
other Salem Media Group radio stations in Dallas-Fort Worth.
(KLTY) 94.9 KLTY https://klty.com
(KSKY) 660am The Answer https://660amtheanswer.com
(KWRD) The Word 100.7FM https://thewordfm.com
(KTNO) 620AM Radio Luz https://luzdallas.com
(KLTY-HD2) 94.9-HD2/102.5 El Pez https://elpezdfw.com``

That last one is also sloganned ``Inspirando Tu Vida`` -- El Pez
refers to the Christian idea that it`s somehow related to the Greek
word for fish, ichthos -- a back-formation acronym translated as
``Jesus Christ, Son of God``. Thus the fish symbol on rearends of
cars, people, and elsewhere. Note: in Spanish once a fish be caught,
it becomes a pescado, i.e. ``fished``. So I guess Christian converts
are also pescados; hopefully without too much injury to their lips.
Note one is spelt with a z, the other with an s. Roughly 50% of fish
are female, so why isn`t there a feminine equivalent of el pez? La pez
is a chemical term meaning pitch. But I digress?

This is probably not new, but on the caradio I notice that 620 is
stronger/louder than 570 KLIF Dallas. Both 5 kW, so if everything else
were equal, KLIF should be slightly stronger on a lower frequency, or
essentially the same. KLIF also has constant daytime CCI here from
understation WNAX Yankton, the only such SD, while 620 has none. The
620 daytime pattern FCC pdf is still labeled KEXB! It`s broad and
flattened from WSW to NNE. KLIF daytime is almost circular but offset
from center favoring the south side.

At 2058 UT on two radios, I confirm that 1440 is not // 620, but can`t
tell yet what format is now thereupon. The former home of Radio Luz,
at U4 50000/350 watts, 1440 ought still to be useful for something in
the daytime. Hey, there can never be enough Vietnamese in DFW.

1440, Oct 18 at 2343 UT now that SSS skip is in, we have the interim
answer: indecision. YL loop running over and over which I transcribe:

``This is KEXB, University Park, 1440-AM, Experts in Business. Radio
Luz Dallas se ha mudado de la 1440-AM a su nueva casa, la 620-AM ---
misma programación, mejor cobertura, más alcance. Radio Luz Dallas,
iluminando mente y corazón``. And I go to the trouble to record it for
posterity:
https://www.w4uvh.net/KEXB_1440_loop_2019_1018_2349z.mp3

Official Oct SS/SR for KEXB and KTNO are 0000/1230 UT, so at 2349,
1440 still legally on 50 kW day power, before cut to only 350 watts
night (Nov: 2330-1300 UT) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 780, Oct 18 at 1240 UT, with nearby KSPI nulled, a station
giving school lunch menus and activities for today in Madison --- not
WI, but the next town south of Norfolk NE, and soon a WJAG ID rather
than WBBM. Cannot imagine bigcity BBM ever doing that (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1190, Oct 18 at 0543 UT, brief bit of Navajo-like chanting,
looping NW/SE, then maybe more conventional music. No Native stations
known per se, as I assume this is the eclectic student station, KVCU
Boulder CO, U1 6800/110/CH5000 watts (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** U S A. 1190, Oct 18 at 0543 UT, as I am DFing the chanting from the
NW, I encounter a much stronger signal from the NE. Normally would
expect KDMR Kansas City, U2 5000/500, yet often dominant at night. But
that`s EWTN and what I am hearing is far too extreme for RCC
commentary --- racist anti-NAACP rant employing the N-word with no
bleeping but reverb for emphasis; also refers to St. Clair County and
St. Louis. Therefore, this is KQQZ, CoL Fairview Heights IL, address
in Belleville, but just across from MO, U4 10000/650/psra 138, ``1190
The Patriot`` per NRC AM Log.

KQQZ and three other stations in the group are in big trouble, because
the owner Robert Romanik is a convicted felon, ineligible to own
stations. A.k.a. ``The Grim Reaper``, I think this must be himself
still on the air. Haven`t heard anything lately, but see
https://www.w4uvh.net/dxld1929.txt
for a bunch of media reports about this as of June, when the stations
were headed toward an FCC license revocation hearing. How did that
go?

If Bob lose his own outlets, there`s always on SW ``the last
free-speech radio station``, which has already welcomed some felons
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search, Oct 18 at 1244, I`m
on 1566 from the NW to observe a signal drop when HLAZ used to change
beams from thisaway to thataway, but it seems about the same with a
little fading --- o, I must have misremembered, as WRTH shows the
switch from Japanese to Chinese is at 1345, not 1245. For that we`ll
have to wait for later sunrise here, close to 1345 around Epiphany.

Others now: 1098-W, 1026-WSW, 972-NW, 882, 828-NW, 774-NW, 747-NW,
693-NW, 594-NW until 1252 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1161.0, Oct 18 at 0536 UT, carrier very close to a TA
frequency making het against KSL, but looping approx. 005/185 degrees
on the DX-398 --- yet, no such signal to be heard on the R75: so it
must be a local artifact (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1180, Oct 18 at 1256 UT, from NW/SE, string of legal
ads, PSAs, one mentions Houston, but these may be national, as soon
back to wrapup of `America`s First News`, but fadeout during 1300 ID!
So is it KGOL Humble TX (Houston market)? That`s supposed to be La
Suavecita, in Spanish, ex-ESPN-D. Or has it flipped again? Only other
fit on this axis is KOFI Kalispell MT, which is news/talk, but no
complete program schedule on website! Then I check the affiliate list
for `America`s First News` and find no 1180 in TX or MT. I still
suspect it`s KOFI, where Oct sunrise is not until 1400 UT (November:
1445 UT), U2 50/10 kW. Night pattern is basically N/S with a deep
notch toward Rochester, so there is some signal here to the SE (Glenn
Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Logs
** ANTARCTICA. 15476-, Oct 17 at 1406, JBA carrier so LRA36 is again
active this Thursday morning.

Received Oct 17 from Rayén Braun of RAE`s German service, details of
LRA36`s 40th-anniversary special on Sunday October 20, too late to
include in WOR 2004. I translate:

Starts at 1200 with special program in Spanish, and then segments in
other languages produced in Bs As by RAE: 1315 English, 1325
Portuguese, 1335 German, 1350 Chinese, 1400 Italian, 1415 Japanese,
1430 French, 1440-1500* DX news special in Spanish.

Later on Oct 20 there will be 2-hour repeats at 1800-2000 & 2300-0100
into UT Oct 21. In between at 2000-2300, music announced in Spanish.

Reception reports are confirmed with a digital commemorative
certificate and should be sent to lra36@hotmail.com
``Viel Glück! 73 + 55 Rayén`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15140 & 11760, Oct 16 at 1812, both of the only RHC
frequencies supposed to be on at this hour, are missing. Power outage?
Not enough to turn off the HM01 spy transmitter on 11635! Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 13767, 13834, 13633, 13567 approx. and a trace on 13900, Oct
17 at 1411, RHC-FM spurs from 13700-AM are back today with F# tone.
Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11880, Oct 17 at 1415, CRI Plus relay in English is S9+30 but
severely suptorted; wiggle that patchcord. Something`s always wrong at
RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 5040+, Oct 18 at 0118, this RHC continues off-frequency
another night and barely modulated in Spanish. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6000, Oct 18 at 0120, RHC is S9 to S9+10, but JBM; I have to
strain to be sure it`s in English. 6165 is even worse at S9-S6, the
only two English frequencies during prime time. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 1090, Oct 17 at 0603, that mattress infomercial in Spanish
again plugging how wonderful it is for your spine, etc., maybe runs
every night at this time for those who can`t sleep; from the south, so
likely XEAU Monterrey; bothered by 1089 TA het, but 1090 KAAY pretty
much nulled. I really need to tune in a bit earlier for an ID (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2004, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6900-USB, Oct 17 at 2307, big S9+10 pirate signal
way better than a lot of licensed broadcasters, with ``OK, buddy,
start playing it`` at least thrice, hard rock, rap; 2312, ``happily
splendor, *u*k*n* in heaven`` or something like that uttered over and
over past 2316 mixed with music and another voice-over ID of three
letters, hard to make out, BNI? DMR? No, must have been CNR as among
the many reports here of: Clever Name Radio
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,59231.0.html
2337 recheck, ``Like a Rolling Stone`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1580, Oct 17 at 1830 UT, KOKB Blackwell is on the air
again after another absence, sports talk (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX
LISTENING DIGEST)

** PERU. 4775-, Oct 17 at 2319, two JBA carriers slightly on the minus
side, vs CODAR, the usual situation here between R. Tarma and Brasil`s
R. Congonhas. Nor around 0130 Oct 18. I`m afraid the new 2 kW
transmitter Tarma is supposed to start testing today has been of no
help. Viz.:

``AN INTERESTING ITEM I GOT INFORMATION FROM CESAR DIOSES LIVING IN
CIUDAD TRUJILLO IN PERU HERE THE TEXT YOU MAY UTILIZE IN YOUR
PROGRAMS: (1) Playdx Dario Monferini Source:
https://playdxblog.blogspot.com/

Noticia desde nuestro amigo y colaborador Cesar Dioses desde Ciudad
Trujillo de Perù. Radio Tarma Internacional estarà probando su nuevo
transmisor de 2 kW en onda corta por los 4775 kHz banda de 60 metros.
Habrà una QSL especial para todos aquellos que envìen informes de
recepcìon con clips de audio por email :
gerenciageneral@grupomonteverde.com Las transmisiones empezaràn el dia
jueves 17 octubre a las 21:00 hasta las 02:00 UTC.``

I suppose they will continue following days? Per WRTH, OCX4E old
transmitter was only 500 watts; check *1000 except Sundays *1100
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2004, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 9830, Oct 17 at 2219, VOT English arrives only F-P. On Oct
27 makes the usual B-season shift to an hour later from 2300 UT, and
two bands lower to 5960 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2003 monitoring: confirmed
Wednesday October 16 starting at 2100:21 on WBCQ 7490.08; running 21
seconds late but no problem since nothing is cut off, including WOR
finishing complete just after 2129.

Also confirmed UT Thursday Oct 17 at 0100 on WRMI 7780, fair; I`m not
upcut, but spurious second ID by Bob Zanotti just before WOR gets to
say only his name after another full ID before him by Bob Biermann.

** U S A. 9330.00, Oct 16 at 2013, WBCQ-6 is on again with tests
becoming regular, S9 to only S6, so at first on the 60 degree beam
away from here, two WLC guys conversing; 2058 vamp IS; not checked
again until 0030 Oct 17, still in English but VP S5-S6 (compared to
9265 WINB JBA carrier, but the three WRMIs 9395, 9455 and 9955 are all
VG now, tho subject to blackouts later).

9330.00, Oct 17 at 2220, WBCQ-6 is on again at S9+30/40, so obviously
beaming this way with 22db gain of 500 kW; the two WLC guys are pissed
that the rest of us are observing the ``Papal calendar`` which
leads to false worship days and drinking of wine --- Sunday? Saturday?
Friday? He must be one hell of a nit-picker! I assume they are partial
to Saturday Sabbaths, as deviant 7DAs. I`d love to know what the AWR
people think of WLC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15555-USB, Oct 17 at 1402, WJHR gospel huxter referencing
Deuteronomy, just after nominal sign-on; seldom audible, so is there
sporadic E around? Yes, the WWCRs are way boosted to S9+10 on 15825
and 13845; checked DX Map at 1450 to find 31 MHz MUF roughly halfway
to Milton, and there continued to be lots of off-season Es over the
USA, but not exceeding 88 MHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. [Correxion: time and date omitted originally: from 0123
UT Oct 13:] Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, a good idea as Jim
Renfrew, NY has been reporting lots of stuff now and recently: this on
the handheld DX-398 to be sure they DF approx. NE if not SW, but
facing lots of splatter from those pesky North Americans on even
frequencies:

612, 621, 693, 774, 783, 837, 855, 882, 936(2), 999, 1017, 1053, 1062,
1089, 1125, 1179, 1215, 1296(2), 1305, 1413, 1422, 1503, 1512.

(I also have off-frequency-minus hets below 774 and 1548, but as
previously divined, those two are harmonically related to each other
and to 387-, so something local; never mind. DF on these is N/S)
(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Oct 17 at 0310: I
am not digging quite as deep as usual for JJBBA carriers, but still
come up with: 531, 612, 621, 693, 702, 711, 774(2), 819, 837(2),
855(2), 882, 909, 936, 954, 999, 1053, 1062, 1089, 1098, 1107(2),
1152.

On 774 I could make out some talk modulation at 0314, presumably the
megawatt from Egypt altho there are 8 medium-power Spaniards on 774.

We seem to be at the autumnal peak of TA and TP MW DX, but maybe not
for much longer with A and K indices building up to 25 and 5 by Oct
25, per WWV (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2004, DX LISTENING
DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15054.30-USB, Oct 17 at 1408, 2-way in colloquial
Spanish, whistling; I doubt these be licensed OR pilots (Glenn Hauser,
OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
