    Mostly Mexican MWDX to Enid OK, April 29-May 4, 2017

    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

    All times and dates strictly UT. 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; ICR-75 E-W longwire

    ** MEXICO. 620, May 1 at 0415, ``La Norteña``, 91.7 ID, i.e. XEBU Chihuahua2, 5000/250 watts, but not unusual here at night, often over US stations. I don`t think they said ``Norteñita`` as listed this time (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** MEXICO. 800, May 1 at 0416, surprised to find XEROK VG at S9+30, blowing away KQCV OKC; usually it`s the other way around. But now XEROK does sound like a borderblaster. Mentions Ciudad Juárez, promo for 800, songs

    [later on May 1, CKLW programming was reported by CTV Windsor, via Artie Bigley, to have moved to sibling station CKWW 580, due to a fire in the CKLW transmitter, so that 800 is off, opening for DX?] (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** MEXICO. 800, May 4 at 0449 UT, XEROK music blasting over KQCV OKC like a cannon. I really think it must have ramped up to full power lately of 50 kW ND, which means it`s probably tearing up KQCV in parts of OKC as well, outside its main lobe, supposedly protecting XEROK. Seems like I have a pipeline from the WSW, with 1020 KCKN also inbooming, but I really think it`s the stations, not propagation (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    Domestic MWDX to Enid OK, May 4-11, 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 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

    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. 2749-USB, May 7 at 0112 UT, marine weather by YL in French at S7. Didn`t really expect to hear it under summer noise conditions, but just after sunset here so darkish path exists. Per
    http://www.ccg-gcc.gc.ca/Marine-Comm...es-Information
    starting at 0040 it`s VCO Sydney NS from Port Caledonia site, but doesn`t say they transmit any French (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ===========

    ** OKLAHOMA. 1420.0, May 10 at 1224 UT, CBS Sports Radio // 1390 KCRC Enid, of which this is the long-standing spur. Usually it makes an audible het with real 1420 stations, but either accidentally or deliberately, KCRC has tightened up the spur so that now it only makes a fast SAH. Ditto the other one on 1360.0. Also makes it harder to detect the second-order much weaker spurs at 2 x 30 kHz above and below, i.e. 1330 & 1450 (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

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

    ** U S A. 540, May 5 at 2056 UT on caradio, KDFT Ferris [Metroplex] TX in Spanish giving a 214 AC number, and somewhat above KWMT IA, on daytime groundwaves via caradio about 15 miles north of Enid (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1480, May 10 at 1220 UT, ``This is KBXD, Dallas`` ID loop with percussion repeating every 9 seconds --- a DXer`s dream! No more longer loop offering station ``for rent``. Does this mean they got a bite but not yet digested? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1877, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1630, May 7 at 0129 UT, S9+15 of dead air, loops for KKGM Fort Worth TX, my closest and usual dominator. By 0132 UT I make out a bit of music, maybe KKGM just barely modulated. Format is gospel. Sounds like English, so not KRND WY; 0143 UT now some talk under, presumably KCJJ IA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1700, May 7 at 0129 UT, Spanish play-by-play of a game involving a pelota, mentions Colombia, so KKLF Richardson TX ``Banda 13`` is a sports station at the moment (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 2097.3-CW, May 8 at 0316, beacon A is JBA apparently every 10 seconds, but some of them are missed in noise level; from Quartzsite AZ. This thing is apparently always on, and ought to go further than here in quiet night-path conditions (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1480, May 16 at 1232 UT, yes, KBXD Dallas has a new ``renter`` --- Spanish monolog preaching, Jesucristo-this & that, and plugging newly on 14-80; mostly below KQAM which I can`t null completely, making a 72/minute SAH = 1.2 Hz. It`s a pain to have to listen to the latter, with a diehard Wichita local host Trumpster, still partisan to the corrupt, treasonous, incompetent, minority mis-elected Trumpence regime. The preacher mentions another AM frequency before 14-80, which I have trouble copying; at 1239 UT brief CCI from a third station with praise music. KBXD fading down as hourtop approaches, but 1258 UT canned English ID as heard before, ``KBXD, 1480, Dallas``, a bit of music, and then Spanish ID mentioning Wylie-Dallas-Fort Worth, studio address, fade; 1301 UT a 972 AC phone number, YL now; 1302 UT Spanish song and repeated requests by a different OM for reception reports, how far are they reaching now that they have 50,000 watts on 1480, Waco? I finally copy the first frequency definitely as 700, and apparently going to do this until next program at 8:15 am CT. So 1480 is duplicating 700 KHSE, CoL Wylie, which counts upon only 1500/920 watts U4. Too late this morning to get it, altho under best conditions is barely audible on groundwave and at night skywave with plenty WLW QRM.

    Related from radio-insight.com: ``Station Sales Week Of 5/13: By Lance Venta on May 13, 2016 No Comments --- Mark Jorgenson’s ACM JCE IV B LLC sells 1480 KBXD Dallas to Chris Muse for $1.5 million plus a $13,000 payment to break the station’s tower lease``

    So it`s not only been rented but sold. What`s this about the tower lease? Are they moving somewhere else again? BTW, right next to it from Venta is an item about Amarillo 99.7 Fun FM called ``KBXD`` as well, but WTFDA FM Database shows its correct call is KBZD (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1878, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1480, May 18 at 1200 UT, my DX-398 AM sexion is still tuned to 1480 from yesterday morning, so I turn on KBXD again; in Spanish with slogan ``Estás en sintonía de [algo] Esperanza``, then English almost-legal canned ID thrice, ``KBXD 1480 Dallas``. Then ad mentioning ``Radio Setecientos A-M`` for KHSE 700 which is now being duplicated on 1480. Then Esperanza slogan or program name again, later preaching. (Both Wikipedia and Radio-Locator have way outdated info on KHSE as ``FunAsia``). KHSE is attributed to Hammond Broadcasting, but not KBXD, yet John Hammond was the one calling for ``renters`` of 1480 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1500, May 18 at 1208 UT, KJIM Sherman TX is dominant over KSTP and/or OK`s KPGM, with `Osgood File` after CBS News. Charles` aging voice is evident, but he`s still ``seeing us`` on the radio, no longer on TV`s Sunday Morning, outro referring to his social media activity. 1211 UT local announcer ID as K-Jim, and also K267CB on 103.1, I wrote and thought he said, but really on 101.3; Then plays NWS robot with some hum, forecasts for several days ahead, mostly showers and T-storms (like Enid, high risk of tornados May 18). ``America`s best music, the memory-maker, AM 1500, K-jim``. Still a small local station with a distinctive format (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1540, May 16 at 1230 UT, promo for a show on ``Estrella TV, Canal 29``, which we long ago pegged to The Metroplex market; and string of ESPN Deportes promos, from KZMP University Park, now on 32 kW day power (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1690, May 16 at 1223 UT, local news on a change of personnel at KMGH (channel ``7`` named originally for McGraw-Hill publishing), non-ID as `Denver`s Money Talk` from KDMT Arvada/Lakewood (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
