** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Aug 4 at 1434, LRA36 on again for a
Wednesday if not Saturday broadcast; S4-S6 via Pardinho, Brasil SDR.
Usual mix of songs, frequent canned IDs, brief talx. 1434 music and
ID; [pausa para desayuno mío], 1514 weather; 1516 Antártida song; 1521
another song; 1538 multi-lingual greetings/IDs including English. 1540
as if ``sign-on``, today`s weather briefly, ``nublado, nevado`` =
cloudy and snowy, maximum -3 degrees, couldn`t copy the minimum;
contact info including phone, e-mail; songs; 1551, 1554 IDs; 1602 ID
and brief Olympic news [I doubt any Antarcticans compete; but how
about winter?]; 1614 ID, music; 1617 & 1622 ID; talk about something
in 1971y with G.C. 1639 ID; 1649 weather again; 1651 Anta. song; 1654
program ID as `El Lejano Sur` Wed at 11-13 local, no mention of Sat
repeat, SW and FM frequencies, G.C. of studios, staff credits, fade-up
Anta. song again, but not closing down yet, into another song past
1700; 1703 ID and multi-lang greet including English, German,
Russian/Korean and into vamp music loop. Today it keeps going on and
on: several minutes later, ``blanco, hielo y más hielo``, says it all
about the landscape; 1713 rock song and after that almost continuous
rock music, 1735, 1805, 1855, 1919 still going when I finally quit
checking (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CONGO. 6115, Aug 4 at 0613, JBA carrier presumed R. Congo (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 7215, 7165 and 7130, August 4 at 0308, pulse jamming peaking
on only these frequencies in 40m hamband, vs absolutely no one trying
to QSO on them. Bulletin! Hams have the flexibility to QSY anywhere
inband when necessary, so Cuban Commies need to jam ALL frequencies
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** ERITREA. 7180 & 7140, Aug 4 at 0309, JBA AM carriers, the lower one
weaker, with some SSB QRhaM - obviously the two VOBME INTRUDERS at
best time of day to get them here (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** MEXICO. 93.5-FM, Aug 4 at 1956 UT, scanning caradio for sporadic E
DX as suggested by DXMAP, nothing showing even on lower `open`
frequencies, but here some Spanish occasionally overrides `My 93.5`
Pratt/Hutchinson KS, my fringe `local`. 2002, seems to be newscast or
at least talk format; 2007 another fadeup with timecheck as ``3 con
7`` so we know it`s CDT/EST, not Cuba which I hoped at first, rather
east/central México. 2009 ads or PSAs with .mx websites, one for
vacuna gratuita, and back to interview, YL in studio, OM on phone. Not
// 1460 KZUE OK which is also Mexican-originated talk. 2012 mentions
``acá en este estado de Guanajuato``. Fortunately small enough not
likely to have more than one 93.5, as listed:

XHNY-FM 93.5 IRAPUATO GTO MEX Spanish CONTEMPORARY HIT RADIO EXA FM
30.03 30.03 217.0 217.0 20-42-11 101-23-26 --- 1780 km = 1106 stmi

I do believe I have heard it before. Yes: July 22, 2019; June 23,
2015. `CHR` format implies rock music, even in English, but own
website indicates more diversity; dated more than a sesquiyear ago, an
incomplete program list, hardly a schedule, shows one starting M-F at
17 UT, unknown whether more than 3 hours long:

Nota de EXA FM:
https://exafm.com/irapuato/programas/general/ness-al-aire/

``NESS AL AIRE 15-01-2020 - Escucha a NESS de lunes a viernes con la
mejor música y la información necesaria para continuar tu día a día.

El clima en el estado, lo último en tecnología y por su puesto las
notas que están dando de que hablar a nivel mundial en un solo
espacio, además de invitados con temas de actualidad que pondrán un
toque especial a cada día de la semana.

Lunes de deportes con Kike Cardoso.
Miércoles de cine con Alberto Segovia.
Jueves de sexo con Ana Elisa Rosas.
Viernes de recomendación literaria con el Padre Sergio Montoya.
Escucha de Lunes a Viernes en punto de las 12 del medio día.``

However from his portrait appears Ness is a guy, not a YL host; Exa is
also a national network/group so possibly the Guanajuato reference
came thru some other station. Only one in WTFDA DB with a news/talk
format is:

XHO-FM 93.5 MATAMOROS TAMPS MEX HD Spanish NEWS/TALK NOTIPAGE, LÍDERES
EN NOTICIAS 3.0 3.0 39.0 39.0 25-52-47 97-30-15

As researched later. Back online at 2036, I check the XHNH stream, and
it does sound like the same talk show (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 515-MCW kHz, Aug 4 at 0619 UT, NDB PN at Ponca City is
gone again (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 96.9, Aug 4 at 1859 UT, KQOB is back on already. I never
paid any attention to metered strength, but sounds like licensed 100
kW, and usual adjacent-channel bleed, so suspect they have got their
original Crescent site fixed already and won`t need the STA at KWPN
aux site (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4096, August 4 at 0631 UT, JBA CW, too weak to copy, but
alternating with sweeps upward for about a minute at 0632, 0637. Must
be the ``DW`` beacon somewhere in the SW desert. I had been seeking
this since Art Peterson notified me June 17, but not until now has my
storm/line noise level descended to barely low enough:

``Glenn, The “desert whooper” beacon on 4096 has changed its format.
Instead of alternating the CW with the whoops, it is now superimposed
on the whoops. CW format is now:
8 dits, BEACON LTMP 37 BAT 131, 8 DITS
Also, the temperature appears now to be in °C instead of °F, they
dropped the DW ID in favor of “beacon,” and they have dropped having
an explicit decimal point on the battery voltage. Just thought you
would like to know. Still no idea where it is, but I get solid
reception at night here in grid CM87tw, SF Bay Area. 73, Art
Peterson``

Speaking of expressing temperature degrees, everyone else is wrong,
when referring to a *change* in temp, e.g. global warming. Degrees-F
or degrees-C means an axual temp. But when talking about a temp
*difference or change*, the terminology should be reversed, as in
F-degrees, or C-degrees. I learnt this in Physix 101 at Washington
University in 1963. Now journalists, e.g. Time magazine, and even
scientists just don`t get it. Just one example from Science News:

``Unbearably hot --- On June 29, the Pacific Northwest heat wave hit
its peak, setting new temperature records in Portland, Seattle and
Vancouver, and a new country-wide temperature record for Canada in
Lytton, British Columbia. This map shows how the temperature of the
air about 2 meters above the ground compares with the 2014–2020
average temperature for that same day. In some spots, it was a
whopping 20 degrees Celsius higher.``

I have copied the above to Science News feedback, and they promise to
read it, but no reply yet (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 940, Aug 4 at 0615, S9+30 signal with C2CAM, like a 50 kW
clear briefly, but then fades vs CCI. Presumably 5/1 kW KIXZ Amarillo
TX, only one of two C2C stations on 940 per last year`s NRC AM Log.
The other is also adjacently-stated, KSWM Aurora in SW Missouri, but
allegedly only 25 watts night. However, KIXZ night pattern supposed to
go NW, not ENE! while KSWM is ND.

https://www.coasttocoastam.com/stations/
Can be set to show all stations on one page, rather than state by
state, and indeed the only 940s currently are these two (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** U S A. 97.3, August 4 at 1903, hunting for possible Es DX, I hit
upon a fadey fringer, plug for some 8/28 event; 1905 horse feed ad
with 620 area code; 1906 ``Continuous Country Q-97`` YL ID, thus:
KKJQ 97.3 GARDEN CITY KS COUNTRY Q 97 FM 100.0 100.0 244.0 244.0
37-46-48 100-27-36 2B62 KKJQ THE DAWG - (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

DX/SWL/MEDIA PROGRAMS
Updated as of Aug 3:
http://www.worldofradio.com/dxpgms.html

** ANTARCTICA. Re 15475.98-RCUSB, Manuel Méndez, Lugo, Spain, replies:
``Hi Glenn, I have asked the station staff why LRA 36 has not been on
the air the last two Saturdays and they answered that it was due to
weather conditions and activities at Base Esperanza. Best 73,s``
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, August 3 at 0632, RHC English is nothing but humbuzz;
6100 undermodulated; 6165 & 6060 & 5040 off. Something`s always wrong
at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 7157 & 7215, August 3 at 0635, pulse jamming continues in the
40m hamband against nothing, again peaking around these two
frequencies only (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KASHMIR [non]. 15170, Aug 3 at 1503, Kashmir Civitas again booming
in to UTwente, VG S9+20 for another weekly Tuesday broadcast in
presumed Urdu with constant strumming underneath; one English word
heard: ``teamwork``. Via IRRS presumably Romania (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. Daytime NDB check August 3 at 2215 UT: 515-MCW,
PN, Ponca City is back on; 350-MCW RG OKC and 351-MCW EI Enid also
audible, and even 395-MCW Ulysses KS - but not the other KS; and
332-MCW IC Wichita is unusually not audible. This on one receiver with
a lower noise level and loop antenna. A few minutes later on the other
receiver with higher noise and longwire, 515 PN is unheard, not even
the carrier, but 332 IC is JBA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 93.9, Aug 3 at 1545 UT on caradio, KIMY Watonga has
finally resumed modulating after 4 days of dead air as carrier stayed
on; praise music. The Praisee must have felt abandoned (Glenn Hauser,
Enid, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 96.9, Aug 3 at 1546 UT on caradio, KQOB is
still off the air for a second day, audiblizing the next 96.9, KKOW-FM
Pittsburg KS in the fringe with a 417 AC Joplin ad.

Brock Whaley, Aiken SC, found the reason why KQOB disappeared:

``In other filings with the FCC, CHAMPLIN BROADCASTING, INC. applied
for an STA to operate KQOB/ENID, OK at another tower site on a
temporary basis due to damage to the existing antenna. via
allaccess.com Aug. 3``

So I dig into FCC documentation. Here it is:

https://licensing.fcc.gov/cgi-bin/ws.exe/prod/cdbs/forms/prod/cdbsmenu.hts?context=25&appn=101826979&formid=911&fac_num=10857

``Exhibit 4
Description: JUSTIFICATION FOR THE STA REQUEST

CHAMPLIN BROADCASTING INC. REQUESTS A STA TO RELOCATE STATION KQOB TO
ANOTHER TOWER SITE ON A TEMPORARY BASIS DUE TO DAMAGE TO ITS EXISTING
ANTENNA. THE KQOB ANTENNA SUFFERED A BURN OUT AND WILL NEED
REPLACEMENT. IN THE MEANTIME, CBI HAS RECEIVED PERMISSION TO RELOCATE
TO THE AUXILIARY SITE LOCATION OF STATION KWPN. THE 60 DBU CONTOUR OF
THIS LOCATION WILL NOT EXTEND BEYOND THE CURRENT 60 DBU CONTOUR OF
KQOB.

Attachment 4
Antenna Location Coordinates: (NAD 27)
Latitude: Degrees 35 Minutes 34 Seconds 11 North
Longitude: Degrees 97 Minutes 30 Seconds 2

7.4. Overall Tower Height Above Ground Level: 92 meters
7.5. Height of Radiation Center Above Mean Sea Level:
445 meters(H) 445 meters(V)
7.6. Height of Radiation Center Above Ground Level:

7.7. Height of Radiation Center Above Average Terrain:
96 meters(H) 96 meters(V)
7.8. Effective Radiated Power: 9 kW(H) 9 kW(V)``

KWPN is AM 640, CoL Moore, SE of OKC. Now KQOB can be a real OKC
station, never mind Enid. But coordinates above do not match FCC info
for KWPN, i.e.. its main site, not aux.

``CDBS NAD27 coordinates:
35° 17' 21.00" N
97° 30' 08.00" W
Use NAD27 in CDBS applications.``

The out of use KQOB site west of Crescent:
``Previous NAD27 coordinates:
35° 58' 50.00"
97° 41' 42.00"``

Map pin goes to SE corner of North 3rd and East Oak in center of Enid!
but it`s at edge of contour circle centered approx. W of Crescent
where the tower really is, but not marked as such.

At 0027 UT August 4, KQOB still appears to be off; altho when it
return on such a low-power, 9/9 kW, faraway STA, it may be
unnoticeable without strain here in its CoL (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2097 monitoring; next:
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW [off air last week]
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

Our non-commercial broadcasts and website depend on voluntary
support: thanks this week to Chuck Ermatinger: Eureka MO, for two
contributions via PayPal, not necessarily in US funds, to
woradio at yahoo.com

One may also contribute by MO or check in US funds on a US bank
to: Glenn Hauser, Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 USA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1200, August 3 at 0646 UT, gospel huxter in English
overcoming WOAI San Antonio, not only now but often when monitored on
my E/W longwire which admittedly is unideal for a station slightly
west of south. Makes a fast SAH with `C2CAM` on WOAI. On the DX-398 I
try to DF it, and find it`s slightly east of due north, i.e. the two
are almost exactly opposite, which is bad news for would-be WOAI
listeners: if you null the QRM here you also null WOAI.

It`s got to be KFNW, Fargo ND, which is a g.h. station but all its
night power of 13 kW is supposed to head north! Must be totally out of
whack; and if so, why not ascribe 50 kW day power to it too, when
pattern is also northward but a significant minor lobe southward. No
other possibilities than KFNW by format, language and direxion. It`s
ironic that the original ``Clear Channel`` station, WOAI, find itself
in such a situation; but who cares now? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Re: ```American Experience` is a PBS series, so I looked for
it first there, but unfound; at YouTube there are lots of Farnsworth
audiovideos, but haven`t found the AmEx one there either. Exact direct
link? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)``

``Hi Glenn - Please see
https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/americanexperience/films/bigdream/
(Ron Howard, CA)``

``Glenn,
Here are the "You Tube" links (yes it's broken into two parts here).
part 1 : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMwEhrRmIVE
part 2 : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vtKjZRxAJBU
Dave Zantow N9EWO, Janesville, WI``
[also via Tom Roberts] (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15120, August 3 at 2220, S5-S6 of open carrier, not much
else on band, but stronger than Cuba on 15230, 15370. VOA is finished
with 15120 at 2200, while CRI via Cuba starts at 0000 (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

Logs
** CUBA. 5990, August 2 at 0600 tune-in RHC, just in time to hear
theme music before cutoff 0601*. I suppose on wrong frequency all
evening instead of 6000, not checked earlier. Hansjoerg Biener,
Germany had 5990 at 0305 and Ivo Ivanov, Bulgaria also noted 5990
until 0601*. Then I found 6060 still on with humbuzz and 6165 OK.
Something`s always wrong at RHC.

5990 is only for CRI relay until 0100; but 6000 is normally on before
0100 so not same transmitter. Wolfgang Bueschel suggests the Quivicán
operator may have been drunk on rum and failed to carry out the
necessary switching. August 2 at 2320, both 5990 and 6000 are on
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 93.9, August 2 at 1759 UT, KIMY Watonga is *still* open
carrier, dead air, as first noted July 30, so now into its fourth day.
Have not monitored 24/7 of course, but whenever I have it has been
dead. Amazing.

95.1, Aug 2 at 1800 UT, also still an open carrier here but much
weaker than 93.9, QRMing OK/KS stations fading in and out, thought to
be an abandoned lowpower transmitter circa Enid (Glenn Hauser, Enid,
WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 96.9, August 2 at 1801 UT, KQOB is OFF!
Licensed to Enid but funxioning as an OKC station since it moved site
halfway there to a field west of Crescent to grow a tall tower. For a
while it was ``Bob`` but now it`s ``Alice`` --- could there have been
a change in its target demographic? But would females or males prefer
or not the opposite sex in a radio station?? Opposite? I mean,
``another``. I know a trans person named Alice.

FCC FM Query shows it was KNID until 2000, but IIRC before then it was
the original KCRC-FM on 96.9. KNID calls wound up on 107.1 in
``North`` Enid. Yes, FCC history cards at

https://licensing.fcc.gov/cgi-bin/prod/cdbs/forms/prod/getimportletter_exh.cgi?import_letter_id=73370
show KCRC-FM was first licensed in 1972y after 6 years of CPs.

``Bob`` branding is not exactly original; WTFDA hits 55 such stations
in the USA, predominantly ``adult hits`` format, but also ``variety
hits`` and a smattering of others, country, rock or even talk; as for
``Alice``, only 11, almost all of them ``Hot AC`` format: what a
coincidence.

KQOB still off all afternoon, such as 2240, 2344 UT chex Aug 2. First
time I can ever recall it absent. As soon as I found the hole, I
perched on it as I was bandscanning due to a 100 MHz Es patch to the
NW, but no DX.

Unless: fade-in like Es at 1828, ad for Shriver Auxion Services. Can`t
be certain of Shriver/Shreiber? spelling but respelling Auxion
conventionally I get two hits: Winchester OH and --- Pittsburg KS. Of
course it`s just my second-closest 96.9, KKOW which is normally
totally blocked by KQOB:
KKOW 96.9 PITTSBURG KS COUNTRY 96.9 THE KOW 100.0 100.0 278.0 278.0
37-18-44 94-48-58 2BEA THE KOW - per WTFDA DB; and there is no likely
Ohio station around Winchester (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K. The 2021 Prom Concert season is underway; BBC America TV news
had a feature about how happy patrons are to have Royal Albert Hall
back in business; and the orchestra is socially distanced on an
expanded stage. First searching leads to Prom concerts on BBC TV in
the UK, with playlinx --- but they are geoblocked! outside the UK.
However, the audio is what counts, and the concerts as on BBC Radio
Three are not blocked. They are each available on demand for 30 days
only starting July 30: BBC Sounds - BBC Proms - Available Episodes

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 2097 monitoring: Dr Hansjoerg Biener,
Germany, tells me: ``WOR confirmed: 210801 5950 0055 0108 USA WRMI, E,
World of Radio 25443 HjBi``

``Hj, Tnx, that is certainly news to me. Was it before or after 0100?
I guess at 0030+ since System L has no entry for 8:30 pm Saturday
after Wavescan at 8:00 or before TRSW at 9:00 [EDT], Glenn``

``I do think I recognized your voice although it was in the middle of
our second night half. The items concerned US local broadcasting which
were of no concern to me.`` -- HjB

I had thought ``0108`` was a second log time rather than the date
repeated in reverse numerical form. So there is a `secret` WOR time on
WRMI, 0030 UT Sunday 5950. There may be others: if you run across one,
do let me know!

Also confirmed UT Monday August 2 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, VG S9+20.

Also confirmed UT Mon Aug 2 at 0130 on WRN webcast to North America.

Also confirmed UT Mon Aug 2 at 0230 on WRMIs: 7780 S8-S4 vs high storm
noise level. 5800 almost blocked by local blob here; but VG S9+5/15
into Bonaire SDR, and no squeal.

Not confirmed UT Mon Aug 2 at 0300 on Area 51 via WBCQ, 6159.900,
rather music fill; and off at 0339 check instead of back to BS. Next:

1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW [off air last week]
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

** U S A. 15555-USB, August 1 at 2127, rare appearance for me of WJHR,
emphatic to put it politely, gospel-huxter JBA at S1-S2 from glorified
low-power ham station in Milton FL, pretending to be 50 kW SWBC. It`s
Sunday but activity appears to be on random days.

Comparing to other 19m stations at same time: 15770 WRMI best, 15825
WWCR, 15370 Cuba and not much else; 15610 WEWN absent, surely off if
nearby WJHR be propagating (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Re the History Channel program about Philo T. Farnsworth,
inventor of television, Tom Roberts replies:

``Dear Glenn, Hope everything is going well in Oklahoma. In Idaho, we
have had at least 45 days of over 100 degree temperatures.

Some DX programs have been talking about the pioneers of television
found on the History Channel. The very best one I have seen on Philo
Farnsworth is on American Experience, parts one and two on Youtube. In
my heart of hearts I believe this wonderful visionary never got the
credit he deserved. With RCA's Sarnoff's deceitful history, he never
said that due to Farnsworth's CRT, they had television in Britain and
Germany, as you know, in 1936 from the experiments begun in the US by
Farnsworth.

If you feel this information presented by American Experience is
helpful, please pass it on. It is much more in depth story of
Farnsworth than the History Channel.

Thank you Glenn for all you do for shortwave listeners and Ham
operators. Love and Peace, Tom``

`American Experience` is a PBS series, so I looked for it first there,
but unfound; at YouTube there are lots of Farnsworth audiovideos, but
haven`t found the AmEx one there either. Exact direct link? (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)
