    Domestic MWDX to Enid OK, September 29-October 6, 2017

    All times and dates strictly UT [4 hours ahead of `ELT` during EDT; when changing times one must also change the dates for events in the 00-04 UT eriod 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

    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

    ** U S A. 660, Oct 6 at 1234 UT, ``The Answer`` local weather, traffic break, and back to talk show, with hiccups/glitches every couple seconds in the modulation, not the carrier: KSKY, 20/0.7 kW U4 from Balch Springs TX, address in Irving, and long known as a Dallas station within The Metroplex. Must be claim to fame of ugly-named Balch Springs which is ESE downtown Dallas next to Mesquite, but B.S. claims 24K inhabitants itself. With a neat call like KSKY, why downplay it for kooky slogan, also in some other markets, related far-right stations? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. UNIDENTIFIED. 1010, Sunday October 1 around 1237 UT, preacher in Spanish with somewhat strange accent, but not exactly gringo. Loops E/W or slightly counterclockwise. #1 suspect is KXXT Tolleson AZ (Phœnix market), Family Values Radio, 15000/250 watts U5. Official FCC October sunrise is not until 1330 UT. Day pattern is circle tangent eastward, good for us. Schedule is overwhelmingly in English, but the daily lineup has lots of gaps including now:
    http://familyvaluesradio1010.com/programguidedaily/
    There is a `Conexión Cristiana` at unknown time, and even a woman holding up a Brazilian flag, so could emit some Brazuguese too (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    This would explain my unID: I had thought of KTNZ, my nearest 1010 to the west, but could not find any update of format change for it from stupid ballgame talk on ESPN en inglés; from Neil Kazaross, IL, Oct 3, in IRCA, et al.:

    ``KTNZ 1010 Amarillo now Spanish Religion --- I've heard their calls followed by Radio Católica Mundial slogans the past couple days at sunrise. This is EWTN Spanish. 73 KAZ Barrington IL`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    Thanks! I was just about to ask who was running that format. They're all over my Border Inn recordings and KTNZ has always been a pest there so I should have guessed. Unfortunately, ever since EWTN revamped their web site a year or two ago they've been failing to update their list of Spanish affiliates.

    I wonder what this means for KICA-980 [Clovis NM] which had been simulcasting KTNZ's ESPN until sometime in the past year. I suspect KICA must be in very bad shape. I've never heard them from the Border Inn despite having many wires aimed at them which picked up KCLV-1240
    and lots of small Texans in the same direction (Tim Sent from my BlackBerry 10 smartphone Hall, CA, ABDX via DXLD)

    ** U S A. 1080, October 2 at 0235 UT, KRLD Dallas TX ending CBS TV `60 Minutes` segment I saw earlier about the Webb space telescope (lacking stunning visuals!); 5 minutes of local radio ads; 0240 UT resume next 60M story about a millionaire teen soccer star, in this crazy world of ours. Anyhow, CBS-owned radio station is playing audio track of the TV show at 0200 UT Mondays, 3 hours after nominal original telecast (but which was delayed a semihour due to a different stupid ballgame). IIRC some CBS radio stations used to run this closer to original airtime 6 pm CT Sundays (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1520, October 1 at 1240 UT, immediately upon tune-in, KYND ID, and no KOKC modulation, dead air there making usual slow SAH. Turns out that KYND is running a 73-second loop over and over trying to promote some business. The points made include, summarizing, not verbatim: if you want to get your program widely heard in the #6 radio market, phone Joel Turner(?) 281-373-1520. Check the coverage map at Radio Locator. 25000 watts. Subject to FCC limitations. Cypress-Houston.

    At 1255 UT some CCI from a third station. At 1301 UT, KOKC has started modulating with news, CBS? Never heard that mentioned. 1305 UT dead air. 1306 UT talk show starts, beginning with morning-wake-up bugle call, but KYND loop can still be heard mixing underneath. Are they running this all the time, or only during certain unsold hours? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1898, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1520, October 2 at 1317, KYND Cypress/Houston TX is still running the ``please buy time here`` loop like yesterday, beneath modulating KOKC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1530, Oct 1 at 1246 UT, promo/PSA concerning wild animals, ID as ``107-3 and 15-30 Mountain Country``, from NW/SE. That`s KQSC, Colorado Springs, prioritizing its silly little translator, K297BQ; on 1530 supposed to be 15000/15 watts U1 with 1000 during critical hours. Official FCC October sunrise is not until 1315 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1540, Sunday October 1 at 1248 UT, infomercial pushing vitamin D supplements, loops NE/SW, must be KXEL Waterloo, Iowa. This semihour used to be occupied by Defunct Elder Jacob O. Meyer of WMLK fame (whose own SW is still not funxional) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** CANADA. 750, Oct 9 at 0558 UT thru hourtop, classic rock in null of WSB, so roughly N/S, 0603 UT Geo ad, 0604 UT ID as `CK 750 Classic Hits``, i.e. CKJH, Melfort, Saskatchewan, 25/25 kW U4 (and in stereo per NRC AM Log). ND day, but the late Paul Swearingen`s NRC Pattern Book shows at night is supposed to be almost circular to north with a notch toward Atlanta (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** CANADA. 1610, Oct 10 at 0634 UT, again at this hour YL in Luso Portuguese, mentions call CHHA in English pronunciation. Clearer with USB tuning, presumably due to relative ACI levels 1620 vis-à-vis 1600 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENNG DIGEST)

    =========

    ** U S A. 730, Oct 9 at 0605 UT, Augusta ad with 855-tollfree number; KLOE 730 ID and extended weather forecast, 0606 UT ``730 KLOE``, into talk show with YL, `America Tonight`, or ``ATN`` for short, previewing various topix including football. Guess what: KLOE, Goodland, NW corner of KS, 1 kW daytime is supposed to run 20 watts at night; now it`s dominant over everything, including 100 kW(?) XEX (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 990, Oct 13 at 1251 UT, ad mentioning phones with ACs 785 and 846, loops ENE/WSW?, then ad for ``your hometown bank, Bank of Aurora``. Those clues should nail it, but there is no 846, and AC 785 is northern Kansas, where 990 is KRSL Russell, but no such bank there, and it`s to the north. DF and proximity lead to very likely KRMO Cassville MO, address in Monett, and also near Aurora in southwest MO; 2500/47 watts U1. Trouble is, I can`t find a bank by that exact name, e.g. consulting

    ** U S A. 1510, Oct 13 at 1259 UT, PSA for Puerto Rico aid, dead air hole instead of ID from 10 seconds just before 1300 UT, and into ESPN Radio with `Mike & Mike`; loops NE/SW, surely KCTE Independence MO, despite failure to legally ID (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    =========

    UNIDENTIFIED. 1030, Oct 11 at 0226 UT, good signal looping N/S or slightly clockwise from there, James Dobson program with 877 number, mentions `Family Talk` which is one of his numerous sub-shows.

    Suspect 50 kW ND daytimer KCTA Corpus Christi TX, long after sunset, and even longer after WBZ sunset. Is it on his roster? Yes, but at another illegal time, presumably Central, no obstacle for gospel huxters above the Laws of Man!

    Family Talk
    http://drjamesdobson.org/Broadcasts/Stations
    Corpus Christi KCTA-AM 1030 M-F 3:30 AM

    Only other religious station on that bearing is 50/4 kW U4 WCTS Maplewood MN, but NOT on his list. Hoped for an hourbottom ID, but all I hear is a KAB/Ad Council PSA for recycling, then another g.h. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    Radiósfera is not a program on a specific station.

    While we associate the RTC with short spots, part of the time requirement must be fulfilled by airing longer programs of 5 and 10 minutes duration (both for radio and TV). (Here's the RTC page with the most recent ones.)

    The current capsules (that's what they are usually called) are

    Difusión Cultural - Secretaría de Cultura
    Segments from La Hora Nacional - Secretaría de Gobernación
    Radiósfera - UNAM
    Decisiones de la Corte - SCJN (Suprema Corte de Justicia de la Nación)
    Mundo del Trabajo - STPS (Secretaría de Trabajo y Previsión Social)
    Revista del Consumidor Radio - Profeco (which also publishes a Revista del Consumidor — think Consumer Reports, but published by a government agency)
    Ya OISSSTE - ISSSTE (Instituto de Seguridad y Servicios Sociales de los Trabajadores del Estado) (this is a horrible, horrible pun, too. "¿Ya Oíste?" - Have You Heard?)

    In the 90s, the RTC even had its own identification that preceded these programs — which also served as a wonderful reminder of what exactly its initials stand for.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iz97E1m0Upk
    Este programa es público, ajeno a cualquier partido político. Queda prohibido el uso para fines distintos a los establecidos en el programa.

    ** U S A. 920, Oct 20 at 1105 UT, end townhall.com news, KVEL weather, atop the CCI at the moment, from Vernal UT. 5/1 kW U2, main night lobe aims NE, with a very minor sidelobe sorta thisaway (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1010, Oct 14 at 1235 UT, Catholic talk in Spanish, into mass in English with voice-overs, just like // 5810 WEWN, but not synch, i.e. KTNZ Amarillo TX as we now know in its born-again format (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. UNIDENTIFIED. 1030, Oct 14 at 0605 UT, open carrier overcomes most of the CCI when aiming N/S. Again strongly suspect it`s 50 kW ND daytimer KCTA Corpus Christi. WWJD? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    Re my report of open carrier on 1030 kHz in the middle of the night, from the south or north, believed to be 50 kW DAYTIMER, KCTA, Corpus Christi TX, I received this confirmation sent October 15:

    ``Good morning Mr. Hauser, I follow your DX Reports on the WTFDA Boards. You mentioned in your most recent post, KCTA in Corpus Christi, Texas operating at night.

    I, too, have received KCTA in Nashville, TN. I enjoy listening to WBZ from Boston, MA at night, but KCTA completely overpowers WBZ’s signal. I went to the KCTA Webpage http://www.kctaradio.com/ and found contact info at the station to e-mail my complaint to. (This is not the first time this station has operated at night. I e-mailed them a couple months ago about the same problem.)

    On my latest complaint to KCTA, the first response said there is no way I can be hearing them as they are a daytime only radio station, but they would look into the problem. I, then, heard from the engineer who said the recent hurricane damaged the communications lines between the transmitter and the studio and that KCTA has been unable to shut the transmitter off at night. (I think I would get into my car, drive to the transmitter and manually shut it down, but that is just me.) He said he was in hopes the phone company would repair the lines and the interference problem would cease at night.

    The first response to my e-mail confirmed what I am hearing at night is indeed KCTA. The e-mail said they continue to stream programming long after the transmitter (should) sign off. But, since it stays on, the programs also air on 1030 kHz to approximately 10:30 pm CDT [0330 UT]. After 10:30pm, there is dead air until the streaming picks back up early in the morning. Since the programs are meant to be streamed only at night, no station IDs are aired.

    They did appear to correct the problem, as a couple days this week KCTA was off at night. But, the last couple nights, KCTA has been back on interfering with WBZ.

    I can only imagine how bad the interference must be for stations authorized to operate at night on 1030 kHz, including one about an hour west of Nashville. It seems strange to me this station has no fear of the F.C.C. and admitted to me about their nighttime operation.

    Around the Nashville area, there have been several cases of local AM Stations, with low power night operating authority, to remain on daytime power for months at a time. You may have received them in Oklahoma. WMCG 810, WAKM 950 and WHIN 1010 to name a few, which have been guilty in the past of operating more than a month on their daytime power.

    The FCC wants to revitalize the AM Band; maybe they should start by enforcing the laws on the books governing low power operation at night. The engineer stated maybe this was God’s way of talking to me in Nashville. Keep up the good work, William ‘Buzz’ Rawls, III, Nashville, TN`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1900, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1040, Oct 20 at 1108 UT, M&W talk in Vietnamese, with WHO nulled, making 28/minute SAH = 0.47 Hz. Still audible at 1122 UT. Figure it`s most likely the Dallas station, which is now KGGR, yet its schedule shows nothing but English, not only now but anywhen:

    http://www.kggram.com/schedule/
    ``Monday – Friday
    Start Finish Program
    Sign On 8:45 AM Great Gospel Music``

    Only other possibility, and with ethnic format, is WPBS Conyers GA, which is 50 kW ND daytimer; 5.5 kW CH, NRC AM Log listed as ``Atlanta Radio Korea``. Ditto radio-locator.com but outdated entry for WPBS 1040 showing website http://atlantaradiokorea.com/ now goes directly to WQXI 790! So maybe the 1040 station has now converted to other languages, as this certainly was not Korean!

    Atlanta sunrise today is 1147 UT, and official October FCC sunrise is 1145 UT (November: 1215 UT). So what is it doing on air already at 1108? CH would also require it to keep down to 5.5 kW for two hours after sunrise. There is no info about a PSRA for this in NRC AM Log or FCC Correspondence.

    Altho not carrying it, tunein.com offers a clue for 1040 as ``Spice Radio``. But that`s old news. Here`s the clincher, from Wikipedia:

    ``In early 2008, it changed formats to "Spice Radio Atlanta" broadcasting with Desi/Hindi music and talk.

    By mid-2009, the station was simulcasting with 1080 WFTD's "Atlanta Radio Korea" programming. The Korean programming of "Atlanta Radio Korea" was then heard exclusively on WPBS and dropped from WFTD which then started carrying Spanish language programming.

    When Atlanta Radio Korea, owners of WPBS, purchased WQXI from Entercom and flipped it to from [sic] its simulcast of WSTR on December 15, Vietsong Media, owners of WFTD, purchased WPBS and has flipped the format to Vietnamese radio, as of January 1, 2017`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1330, Oct 20 at 1115 UT, ad for something in Kermit TX, and KCKM singing ID, then C&W music, dominating even the second-order KCRC Enid spur het, and KNSS Wichita. 12/1 kW U2, and October sunrise is not until 1300 UT (November: 1315 UT). I must conclude it is operating illegally with 12 kW ND day pattern; night pattern has a null toward Wichita and Enid. There is nothing about a PSRA in the NRC AM Log nor to be found in the FCC Correspondence file (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1540, Oct 19 at 1312 UT, surf forecast, KGBC ID and song. This 2.5 kW transmitting from Galveston Island really gets out; easily separable from YL talker, presumably Ingraham on KXEL. Just after I had checked 1520 for KYND, but too far gone under KOKC to tell whether still running the promo loop (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) Yes, it is, says Stephen Luce Oct 20

    ** U S A. 1710 kHz, Oct 20 at 1137 UT, screaming gospel huxter in Spanish (I think; can hardly understand a single word), mixed with other loud voices from apparent pentecostal service. Steady S9 signal but undermodulated. I am hearing this only on the R75 with E/W longwire, so no DFing; on the DX-398 tried first, I was only getting some pulsing whine, apparently from some local device. (At 1143 UT I note that 1680 KRJO with West Monroe ad is still in well.)

    1710 still past 1140 UT, crowd responses, keeps going past 1200 UT with no pause or ID. I have been looking for this tnx to Terry Krueger`s log from Florida:

    ``1710 LOUISIANA (PIRATE) Radio Retén lo que Tienes, Bãton Rouge. 1014 [GMT] October 12, 2017. Screaming Spanish male preacher and audience response, parallel live stream. https://www.radioretenloquetienes.com Thanks D. Crawford for the tip. Decent signal. Also in well around the same time on October 14. How long will this one last? (Terry Krueger, Clearwater FL, WORLD OF RADIO 1900, DX LISTENING DIGEST)``

    Current true BR SR/SS times are 1210 UT/2328 UT. Website blatantly claims to be on 1710 AM and also 107.7 FM: Guess what, WTFDA FM Database shows no legal 107.7 anywhere in Louisiana. Address as: ``Iglesia La Nueva Jerusalen, Radio Reten lo que Tiene, Ministerio, Ciudad de la Verdad Monte de Santidad, 8290 A Siegen Lane, Baton Rouge 70810 L.A. [sic] Tel 225-394-3748, 787-909-6199``

    ``Tiene`` -- sic; are we being familiar or not? Program schedule is rather strange, showing mornings only on: Martes y Jueves 7 a 12 am (but this is Viernes).

    The slogan derives from Revelation III:10, in one translation, ``I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown``. Crown? As in skull? I don`t wear any other one (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    The way that Radio Retén lo que Tienes's schedule is written, that's 7am to midnight, not 7 to noon. (Also, that is one mouthful of a name!)

    One of the Baton Rouge guys has heard the FM before and actually asked for an ID of it. That AM, though, is getting out thanks to its funky frequency!

    Domestic MWDX to Enid OK, October 21-27, 2017

    All times and dates strictly UT [4 hours ahead of `ELT` during EDT; when changing times one must also change the dates for events in the 00-04 UT eriod 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

    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. 1610, Oct 25 at 1213 UT, ending informaciones in Spanish; I keep hoping to hear something besides CHHA Toronto here, but followed by ad with 416 area-code which is as good as an ID. XEUACH is much desired, the only Mexican; in Spanish there are also Peruvians and Argentines per the BDXC X-band list copied into DXLD 17-41 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

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

    ** OKLAHOMA [non]. 1120, as late as 1320 UT Oct 22, KMOX in solid with local temp 70 already, no sign of 10 kW daytimer, KETU Catoosa, which is entitled to start 7 kW Critical Hours at 1230 UT in October (1300 UT in November); at 1323 UT, SAH against KMOX starts, maybe this if not TX.

    KETU pattern is major lobe south, minor lobe north, nulls toward St Louis and Portland

    ** OKLAHOMA. 1230, Oct 22 at 1316 UT, steady open carrier/dead air atop the graveyard jumble, no doubt my semi-local on groundwave, WBBZ Ponca City, failing to modulate (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

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

    ** U S A. 1520, Oct 22 at 1311 UT, KYND Cypress TX is still playing the 73-second loop trying to get someone to lease the station; axually atop weakened KOKC now. Please, someone call Bill Turner at 281-373-1520 and get some more pertinent programming upon it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    Glenn, KYND is still running the promo loop, looking for someone to lease the station. Previous programmer moved to KLVL 1480 (Stephen Luce, Houston, Texas, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. Re my search for 1560 KGOW Bellaire TX now in Vietnamese, Stephen Luce, Houston, replies, ``Glenn, KGOW flipped to Vietnamese on October 1st. The previous sports format moved to translator K231CN on 94.1 FM. KGOW is still operating full time from its night site, so the former strong signal heading NNE from the day site during critical hours is no longer there`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    Hello, IRCA reports: 1560 KGOW Bellaire, TX was sports, now ethnic. Website still shows sports but domain up for sale. Best wishes (Barry :-) Davies, Carlisle UK. Lat. 55.0119N Lon. -2.9668W, Oct 24, MWCircle yg via DXLD)

    ** U S A. 1560, Oct 25 at 1216 UT, promo for something at 4 pm on KLNG, Christian stuff. I am here trying to dig some Vietnamese out of the QRM, as NRC DX News reports that KGOW Bellaire TX has flipped to that from sports in English! But no sign of it.

    KLNG is plenty strong like the 10 kW ND daytimer it is from Council Bluffs IA. Trouble is, official October sunrise per FCC AM Query is not until 1230 UT (November: 1315 UT), after which for two Critical Hours it is supposedly restricted to 2.1 kW. If anything at this hour, it should be running PSRA (pre-sunrise authority) of only 1.32 watts --- yes, that is one-point-three-two watts as in NRC AM Log! Clearly not worth bothering with, so why wait if you are one of God`s stations above the Laws of Man? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    Per a phone conversation I had a couple years ago with GM Chuck Yates, the info for the 10 kW day power and the 2.1 kW CH power lines up with what's listed in the NRC Log, and in addition, KLNG also has a 332 watt PSSA, which they normally run up to 2 hours after LSS, then they sign off (although, as I type this, KLNG is already off, so who knows WHAT criteria they use as to what days they implement the PSSA and what days they don't). I live about 5 miles due west of KLNG's stick, and it's doubtful that 1.32 watts would even make it THIS far after 0600 CLT. My hunch is that if you heard them that well in Enid at 0716 CLT, they were already running at least the 2.1, if not the full 10. I'm copying this to Wayne Heinen so that he can stick the 332 watt PSSA into his database for next year's logboook. 73, (Rick Dau, South Omaha, Nebraska, 0059 UT Oct 26, ABDX via DXLD)

    ** U S A. 1589.942 approx., Oct 22 at 1307 UT, sermon in English; low het = about 60 Hz hum often audible against 1590.00 stations. I previously traced this on June 12 to KMOZ, 1000/85 watts U1 in Rolla MO, a Bott station, when it was on 1589.90 in the middle of the night at 0500 UT. Since then I don`t find a single other report of KMOZ on the IRCA or NRC lists (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1710 kHz, Oct 22 at 1205 UT, JBA talk, 1207 UT music, vs storm noise level from LA/TX, no doubt still Radio Retén lo que Tienes, Bâton Rouge pirate, as heard much better Oct 20. JBA carrier still audible at 1304 UT.

    This thing is obviously more than a 10-watt talking house transmitter as it gets out to at least 910 km/565 miles to Enid; or 856/532 to Terry Krueger in Clearwater FL; thus I am surprised that since publicized on World of Radio 1900, and in DXLD yg, and my own previous log, I have seen NO other reports of it, at least in the ABDX, IRCA and NRC lists (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1901, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    1710.024, LOUISIANA, (PIRATE), Radio Retén lo que Tienes, Bâton Rouge. 0915 [UT] October 21, 2017. Nearly local level with primitive Spanish live (presumably pre-recorded) gospel chanting inside the church with lots of room echo, Spanish preacher briefly from 0939 UT, back to singing. Parallel station website stream. Weak het when tossed into LSB, coming from just below 1710.00, maybe the possibly affiliated NY-area pirata (Terry Krueger, All times/dates GMT, Clearwater FL, IC-R75, NRD-535, short longwires, active loop, WORLD OF RADIO 1901, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    1710.02, Oct 24 at 0614 UT, Spanish preaching, presumed Radio Retén lo que Tienes, Bâton Rouge, Louisiane pirate. So far only other DXer of this known is Terry Krueger in Florida who put it on ``1710.024, at 0915 GMT October 21, 2017 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1901, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    I'm worried that XEUACH will not be on 1610 much longer and think there is a permit discontinuity case somewhere here.

    The Universidad Autónoma Chapingo received a concession for 1130 XECHAP earlier this year. I suspect that not only was there a permit discontinuity, but the university could not remain on 1610 because the AM X-band is the Article 90 reserved band on AM (equivalent to 106-108 MHz FM, reserved only for community and indigenous stations).

    Nothing has been awarded on the X-band yet. However, IFT activity suggests that if frequencies in the non-reserved band are available at the same power level, then stations should be relocated to clear the Article 90 reserved band. Quite a few 106-108 MHz FMs have been renewed with the cited reasoning being that it is impossible to find other allotments for them at equivalent station classes.

    Excluding XEUACH, there are four X-banders in Mexico: 1630 and 1700 Tijuana and 1650 and 1670 in/near Mexico City. (1700 Mérida was allowed to move to 680 in 2014 citing existing equipment from its commercial patron.)

    There is not much room to move XEUT or XEPE. However, depending on if other concessions are renewed (XEDA and XENET come to mind, as well as GRC's current shutdown of a number of its AMs), I could see the IFT relocating XEARZ or XEANAH.

    1130 was not available in Texcoco until recently. It had been home to XETOL in Toluca. If that precedent holds, 1200 from Toluca may soon open up (second-wave migration), along with 1560 Mexico City (XEINFO will be a second-wave migrant).

    ** CUBA. 640, Oct 31 at 0003 UT, with near-local KWPN Moore OK nulled, something in Spanish, mentions ``pescador de hembras``, hmmm, sounds interesting; is it the new WMFN in Peotone IL? That station has just activated after being moved from Zeeland MI, causing excitement among MWDXers. Unfortunately, the Spanish I am hearing loops toward Cuba, Radio Progreso, not Chicago. Initially WMFN was being heard 24 hours in Spanish, as reported by Tom Jasinski, Joliet. How do you pronounce Peotone? Or in Spanish? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** MEXICO. 820, Nov 1 at 1300 UT, the only Mexican NA I find in a quick scan of the lower band is here, barely, with WBAP nulled. Probably XEABCA, Mexicali, still on DST where it`s 6 am (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    UNIDENTIFIED. JBA trans-Pacific MW carrier search, Nov 3 at 1206-1210 UT: from WSW, i.e. Au/NZ not Japan: 774, 702, 576, 1035; and from west 1098, i.e. Marshall Islands (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
