    Domestic MWDX to Enid OK, December 2-8, 2017

    All times and dates strictly UT [5 hours ahead of `ELT` during EST; when changing times one must also change the dates for events in the 00-05 UT period to the previous date by ELT].

    Rx: mostly DX-398 with internal antenna only or PL-880; NRD-545 with ALA-330S inside E-W or inside randomwire N-S; Nissan stock caradio as specified; IC-R75 with E-W longwire. FRG-7 is no longer in use.

    These logs are excerpts from my daily all-band reports, mainly SWBC, also VHF/UHF, sometimes, utility, ham, which may be found in several archives without much delay, such as
    http://www.hard-core-dx.com/index.php?topic=Hauser

    And compiled weekly along with extensive news from many other individuals and publications in DX LISTENING DIGEST:

    All my MW DX reports starting August 2011 are archived in this forum with open access:

    [over 268,000 views! as of December 8, 2017]

    These logs are in four sections, Canada [if any], Oklahoma [if any], rest of USA [if any], unidentified [if any], separated by ======= Within each, they are in frequency order

    ** CANADA. 333 kHz, Dec 7 at 0708 UT, beacon QE and dash, but not listed. Must really be QT, in Thunder Bay, Ontario, dah instead of a dit.

    341 kHz, Dec 7 at 0710 UT, beacon YYU, no dash, mixing at different pitch, so not exactly same frequency as my local on 341, EI Enid. YYU is in Kapuskasing, Ont., also per http://www.dxinfocentre.com/ndb.htm

    That`s neat; I was not expecting anything so exotic on a rare foray into the LW NDB area. Kapuskasing was also the location of a hot analog TVDX target years ago (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** CANADA [and non]. 860, Dec 7 at 0658 UT, French mixing with C&W and at 0700 mixing with KKOW ID, I do detect ``Première`` as CBC French calls itself, but that`s not enough, as there are two of them, CJBC Toronto, 50/50 kW U1, more likely; and slightly further (1883 vs 1766 km), CBKF-2 Saskatoon, 10/10 kW U4; presumably // during informations en sommet de l`heure, but otherwise deux timezones apart for programmation. DFing would nail it but I`m not on the DX-398. CBKF-2 has major lobes N and S, day and night, with nulls toward Toronto and Prince Rupert (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ============

    ** U S A. 660, Dec 8 at 0115 UT, Navajo drumming and chanting, dominating, so again suspect it`s ND rather than protecting NYC. Official FCC December sunset for KTNN Window Rock AZ is 0000 UT. This programming *really* stands out, making any further ID unnecessary.

    A bit earlier I was also hearing cheater KHAC, 880-USB, and echoey KKOB & KKOB, 770. NYC is just out of luck (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 880-CUSB, Dec 2 at 1328 UT, `Creation Moment` nonsense, 1330 UT no ID and into `Parenting Today`s Teens`, neither in Navajo, but obviously KHAC Tse Bonito NM, right across from Window Rock AZ, as E/W DF also fits, and totally overcomes KRVN from the N. (Also just had C&W from E/W on 660-DSB, no doubt weaker neighbor, 50 kW ND KTNN). KHAC obviously on 10 kW ND day power as usual (always?), not 430 watts ND night. Them cheatin` Indians, or rather Anglo missionary impositions by Western Indian Ministries. FCC shows KHAC`s legal SR/SS times for December are 1415 and 2400 UT. And, standard remark about noting the very few SSB US MW stations! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ============

    UNIDENTIFIED. 1440, Dec 8 at 0059 UT, in the mix a variety of tones past 0103 UT; they are not pure, not musical, and are random pitches and durations rather than sweeps or some kind of intentional testing. Can`t get a DF on it as equal on N/S and E/W antennas (which might mean it`s roughly NE/SW, or NW/SE) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    XEQR is not on air since Grupo Radio Centro shut off in May 2017, also are off-air XERC-790 and XEJP-1150.

    Mostly Mexican: One more:

    ** MEXICO. 830, Dec 6 at 0137, something in Spanish with WCCO attenuated by aurora and nulled; all I can catch is a definite mention of 105.7 FM, so is it the usual Unitedstatesian spoiler, WFNO, Norco, Louisiana? NRC AM Log shows its translator wagger is on 97.5.

    Now to check the IRCA Mexican Log: here`s the one with a 105.7: XELN, Linares, Nuevo León, 5000/250 watts, ``La Caliente``. It`s also the only 830/105.7 Mexican combo in WRTH 2017 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    XELN has a continuity obligation — it *must* be on air, so it has to be them.

    I didn't know until reading this that XEQR 1030 and XERC 790 Mexico City stations were silent and gone. This explains the lack of anthems on those channels on my occasional 0000 and 0600 CST (local there) checks. And means when I do hear anthems on these channels I'd better be paying more attention. Glenn, I appreciate your regular posts. Raymie, is there a list of silent Mexican AM stations?
