    Mostly Mexican MWDX to Enid OK, August 26-September 1, 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. 580, Aug 30 at 1136, XEMU with Spanish M&W discussing petrol price rises expected at HEB, Walmart, affecting Piedras Negras, due to TX refinery floodings (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** MEXICO. 610, Aug 29 at 1132, choral NA, ID mentioning 106.1 FM, Sinaloa song, so it`s usual XEGS Guasave. Another one antheming on the semihour. Not // yet to 650 XETNT which is already programming (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** MEXICO. 700, Aug 29 at 1143, open carrier with hum, about WSW/ENE, mixing with weaker stations in Spanish, English. Presumed XEGD, Hidalgo del Parral, Chihuahua, based on my previous logs from 2015y:

    ``700, June 6 at 1105 UT, timecheck for 6:05 on 88.1 FM, just as it`s hit by low rumbling het from another station cutting on the air, presumably XEGD Chihuahua. No 700s are listed with an FM 88.1, but must be XEDKR in Guadalajara, relaying Radio Red out of México DF which *is* also on 88.1 there``

    ``700, Feb 19 at 1259, big hum looping NE/SW on open carrier, 1300 Spanish news starts without any ID. Possibly two different stations, but I doubt it: hummer would be XEGD, La Poderosa, Hidalgo del Parral, Chihuahua, 5/1 kW per IRCA & Cantú, 5/0.25 kW per WRTH`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** MEXICO. 720, Aug 29 at 1158, Spanish has overcome KDWN, 1201 choral NA, into Chihuahua state song, 1203 music and sign-on but unreadable now. So XEJCC Ciudad Juárez (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** MEXICO. 820, Aug 30 at 1200 UT, romantic Spanish song, 1203 segué to a norteña, never mind any TOH IDs; weak and makes slow SAH with equally weak & nullable WBAP. Suspect it is the usual XEABCA, Mexicali BCN (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search August 27 at 1131: 747 from NW, i.e. Japan. Full 9-kHz bandscan the next 5 minutes unfinds any others except finally 756 very weak but seems WSW instead of NW; there is nothing DU greater than 10 kW on 756 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search August 29 at 1124-1128 UT, presunrise here of 1201: only found from WSW on 702 [not 701, typo in original report], 828; from west on 1098 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search August 30 at 1139-1145:
    Looping WSW: 612, 657, 702 (yesterday typoed as 701), 738, 756, 1035.
    Looping both WSW and NW, or rather no nulls: 774, Australia and Japan
    Looping West: 1098
    Looping NW only: 747, 828

    738 is interesting, with Tahiti pest out of the way: there is a 50 kW in NSW. 1098 always assumed V7AB Marshalls; NW the bigsigs from NHK Japan. 1035 would like to be Solomons, more powerful than the single Aussie, but weaker than the Enzedder. Nothing detected above 1098, but the higher end, especially 1200-1500 has heavier QRM from all the domestix.

    I don`t spend a lot of time doing this with only the DX-398 internal antenna, as I know I need more gain to succeed. Maybe if I ever get some signs of TP audio I will be motivated to get out of bed and fire up the NRD-545 & Wellbrook (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** MEXICO. 540, Sept 3 at 0606, multi-verse choral NA from WSW, suspected XETX, in the UT-6 zone, yes, full ID follows at 0609 for XETX, Nuevo Casas Grandes, Chihuahua. QRM nullable from Los Cuarenta music at much different angle, XEWA SLP (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** MEXICO. 650, Sept 3 at 0605, multi-verse choral NA is playing, off about 0607* after I had tuned away to 540. Timing implies midnight in the UT-6 zone, probably usual dominant XETNT Los Mochis, Sinaloa (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** MEXICO. 709.93, Sept 7 at 0553, big het against KCMO et al., loops WSW, no doubt the off-frequency transmitter of XEDP, Ciudad Cuauhtémoc, Chihuahua. When heard around SRS, it`s the other transmitter site, not off-frequency. IRCA Mexican Log of 2015 said ``185 Hz low``, but now it`s only ~70 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search, 1138 UT Sept 5: only 702 & 774 from WSW, probably Australia (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    Domestic MWDX to Enid OK, September 2-7, 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 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. 650, Sept 7 at 0549 UT, adstring mentioning Saskatoon repeatedly, something called CPMA and promos for 650CKOM. Makes 52/minute = 0.867 Hz SAH with easily nulled weak WSM. I was looking for auroral conditions, hardly; and not KGAB WY either. 10 kW CKOM night pattern is north only, while day pattern has a minor lobe to south (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

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

    ** U S A. 540, Sept 4 at 1910 UT, from a store parking lot on western edge of Enid which I have found to be RF quiet, at least on the lower end, I start a bandscan with KDFT. Gospel huxter is alternating Spanish and English rather than Spanish only. KWMT Iowa can be heard in background. KDFT is direxional NW with its single kilowatt which helps it this way to the NNW; why? Because Ferris is SSE of The Metroplex (Glenn Hauser, caradio in western Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 590, Sept 4 at 1912 UT, nothing but a SAH, likely KLBJ Austin TX vs KXSP Omaha NE, both 5 kW ND at the margins of their reaches; city-to-city km/miles: 565/351 to Omaha, 682/424 to Austin (Glenn Hauser, caradio in western Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 700, Sept 4 at 1913 UT, KHSE Wylie TX with song in English, partial ID caught at retune, for K281CS, 104.1, McKinney and a string of other alleged reachees including Dallas and Fort Worth; ``this station is for rent; please call John Howard, 972-904-5904``; 1915 UT Spanish song altho at first it sounded like South Asian. Is it still duplicated on KBXD 1480? Can`t hear that at midday. NRC AM Log says those three constitute the Radio Setecientos group (Glenn Hauser, caradio in western Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 870, Sept 3 at 0615 UT, talk about LSU, but it`s *not* WWL, rather in its null, from ESPN Radio; 0617 UT local break as ``Regional Radio`` promo Summer Selfie Contest, upload to website, also listen to `Trading Post`, at northwest - something.com; job opening at station, contact doug.schmitz@alphamediausa.com or P O Box, in St Joe? Extended weather forecast before rejoining ESPN.

    It`s 930-watt *daytimer* KAAN Bethany MO, whose exact hours apparently depend on sunset in New Orleans, but hardly applicable in the nightmiddle. NRC AM Log says it has LPSA LSSA. The latter means limited sunset authority, i.e. limited to certain months of the year, but LPSA, another new abbr., is not explained [see below]. Radio-locator.com leads to website
    https://www.northwestmoinfo.com/
    or specifically
    https://www.northwestmoinfo.com/2015...0-am-103-7-fm/
    dated January 2015.

    Earlier at 0557 UT, my ear was caught by an audible het on the lo side of 870, which looped about 175/355 degrees. But gone during my KAAN log above. Possibly from a local device, but bearing also fits for KFJZ daytimer in Fort Worth, never noted off-frequency; or beyond that a couple of Mexicans, in Oaxaca, XEACC or Puebla, XENG (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1894, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    Glenn, LPSA is a typo; should have been LSRA.

    We have added codes for LSRA "Limited Sun Rise Authority" and LSSA "Limited Sunset Authority". These indicate were the station has an Authority but it is limited in the number of months out of the year that it has been authorized. This is done to protect other stations on the channel from interference during these periods. Those wishing to find the exact Authority can review the documents at the FCC’s CDBS site. Using the CDBS station search:
    http://licensing.fcc.gov/prod/cdbs/p...d/sta_sear.htm
    Go to Details on the stations search form then View Correspondence Folder. This link will show the PSRA and PSSA documents for the station if any exist (Wayne Heinen, NRC AM Log editor, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 870, Sept 7 at 0558 UT, KAAN Bethany MO is still running day facility at night, audible with WWL nulled, as ``Regional Radio``, promo some contest with text(?) number 67760; IDs as ESPN AM 870 and FM 103.7 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1090, Sept 3 at 0549 UT, RCC talk dominant, from NE/SW, so 8? kW daytimer KEXS Excelsior Springs MO with EWTN is *still* cheating. When nulled a bit, makes 264/minute = 4.4 Hz SAH with presumed KAAY (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1894, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1090, Sept 7 at 0602 UT, KEXS Excelsior Springs MO daytimer is finally off in the nightmiddle, reverting 1090 dominance to Brother Scare on KAAY, abetted by Alexander Scourby, ``the voice of god``.

    1090, Sept 7 at 1222 UT, gospel huxter in English denouncing women in the ministry or any other role not subservient to husbands, none of this 50-50 equality stuff. He knows it`s not p.c., but God so ordains, so there! This is not from NE so not Catholic KEXS, rather KAAY (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1120, Sept 7 at 1225 UT, nulling KMOX finds no Spanish from 10 kW daytimer KETU Catoosa OK, which ought to be on by now (September official FCC sunrise: 1200 UT; October 1230 UT), and is regular during full daytime, just noted yesterday. Its sign-ons have long been irregular.

    Instead an English station talking about Oral Roberts University --- which is Tulsa, so KETU now in English?? No, goes on to mention something ORU is doing ``here in central Austin``, i.e. 5 kW KTXW Manor TX (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1130, Sept 4 at 1918 UT, trace maybe of music, possibly KLEY Wellington KS. Its 250-watt direxional pattern favors the north side, not much our way to the SSW:
    https://transition.fcc.gov/Bureaus/M...273718-860.pdf
    Maybe now it`s in whack, while for years we had a good groundwave daytime signal in Enid, possibly then really non-direxional. On my eclipse trip thru Wellington, I found it strong enough once I got into Kansas (Glenn Hauser, caradio in western Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1160, Sept 7 at 1228 UT, Spanish M&W discussion looping NE/SW, soon fades out, but KFAQ IBOC 1157 is apparently off for a change with weaky 1170. Presumed 5 kW KCTO Cleveland MO, La Raza; rather than 10 kW KRDY San Antonio TX, Radio Luz religious. However, KCTO day and night patterns aim north from Kansas City market, while KRDY is broader to its NW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1190, Sept 7 at 1229 UT, English references to Fayetteville and Fort Smith, so KREB, 5 kW daytimer, Bentonville-Bella Vista, but address in Fayetteville AR. Don`t think I`ve heard this one before. Separable from KDMR Kansas City MO EWTN with RCC talk in English (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    o** U S A. 1490, Sept 7 at 1242 UT, ads for Carthage and Joplin, so KDMO Carthage MO; at 1240 UT in the Graveyard jungle, an ID in passing sounded like KAWG. Closest fuzzy match in the Log would be KVWC Vernon TX which is just across the OK border in the opposite direxion (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1520, Sept 7 at 1245 UT, soul music mixing with KOKC, inseparable by nulling and making slow SAH, surely all three traits of KYND Cypress TX, 25 kW Houston market daytimer, not underwater. NRC AM Log gives current format as UC:OLD/TLK (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1540, Sept 7 at 1247 UT, Galveston weather and Jerry Jay signing off his show until 6 am tomorrow with Black-Eyed Peas. So KGBC is operable too post-Harvey; not sure how long it may have been offed. 1248 UT overcome by much closer, but unfavorably direxional 32 kW KZMP University Park (Metroplex) with ESPN Deportes (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 620, Sat Sept 9 at 1209 UT, stupid football talk, about 7 seconds ahead of 640 KWPN OK; surely ESPN via KTAR Phœnix AZ, as also loops WSW and usually heard, despite own schedule at
    http://arizonasports.com/arizona-sports-987/
    to which 620 AM is a mere unmentionable appendage, claiming programming from 12 to 7 am MST Saturdays is merely generic `Arizona Sports` rather than ESPN national network (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1030, Sept 13 at 0606 UT, `Red Eye Radio` opening hour, plugging flagship WBAP. Only 1030 RER affil listed in new NRC AM Log is: KFAY, Farmington AR, address in FAYetteville, 6/1 kW U4. Not far, but not often heard here, especially in nightmiddle. Night pattern is circle tangent SW, away from Boston, so we are very much on the edge of it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ===========

    UNIDENTIFIED. 1480-, Sept 9 at 0602 UT, something is off-frequency to low side, low het vs KBXD TX Spanish gospel huxter, this one with music in English; loops roughly WNW/ESE, implying WBBP Memphis TN, 5000/41 U1 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** MEXICO. 770, Sept 15 at 1210, several ``Los Cuarenta`` slogans atop music, i.e. XEREV Los Mochis, Sinaloa, owning the frequency now; would that be 5000 watts day or 100 watts night? Had just tuned past other NW Mexicans on 650, 700, 710, 730. KKOB NM should pop on to ND day pattern at 1245 during September (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search September 9 at 1155-1207: 1548, 828, 882, 1512 from WSW. 1098 from west. At 1204 also surprised by a carrier on 1449 from WSW, or rather less than 1449 so probably a US 1450 off-frequency or a local device. Nothing more than 5 kW on 1449 from Australia/NZ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search Sept 15 at 1201-1208 UT: 1098 from west; 774, 702 and 612 from WSW; no others thru topend. Our sunrise today: 1214 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    UNIDENTIFIED. 1010, Sept 15 at 1214 UT, ballad music in Spanish roughly E/W. Format might fit for XELO Chihuahua or XEWS Culiacán (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** MEXICO. 560, Sept 18 at 1200 mentions Monterrey, Nuevo León, but then spoken and sung ``La Tremenda``, which is XESRD, Santiago Papasquiaro, Durango, 10/1 kW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** MEXICO. 610 // 650, Sept 20 at 1205, local weather discussion in Spanish, i.e. XEGS Guasave and XETNT Los Mochis, Sinaloa. On one receiver switching back and forth, so can`t say yet if they be synchronized (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** MEXICO. 630, Sept 18 at 1202, full ID for XEFB, Monterrey NL, by SHVA (super-hype voice actor) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** MEXICO. 720, Sept 20 at 1205, Chihuahua state anthem, 1206 inspirational recitation ``Un Nuevo Día`` about amor, etc. 1208 ``Está escuchando El Fonógrafo 7-20-AM`` with street address, mil watts, Grupo Radio México canned ID, then to live announcer uttering call letters XEJCC (rarely heard), Ciudad Juárez, 6:08 TC. WRTH 2017 agrees on 1 kW power; IRCA log of 2015 showed it as 25 kW daytimer when it was Extremo 720 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** MEXICO. 790, Sept 18 at 1205, patriotic speech clips, probably from Sept. 16 celebrations; 1207 surprised by untranslated English clips of Tillerson, Haley, May; back to Spanish, loops SW and dominant. 1212 program ID as `En los Tiempos de la Radio``; Senado PSA; and finally ID as ``790 AM Grupo Fórmula La Paz``; 1213 mini-features `México y sus Sabores` about quesadillas; `Rincones de México` about Cuatro Ciénagas, Coahuila and its dunes; then another `Sabores` about gorditas. This is XENT, 10000/750 watts, La Paz BCS. Always neat to hear a station from the far end of Mexico; already this morning heard closer but unlogged nearby Sinaloans across the Cortez Sea on 610, 650 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search, 1154 UT September 18: only 702, with two carriers beating from WSW: presumably 50 kW 2BL ABC Sydney, and 10 kW Magic, Auckland NZ, as other monitors have been getting into deep North America (tho there is another 1 kW NZer). Skipped midband, but nothing detected on hiband either (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

I was looking for auroral conditions, hardly; and not KGAB WY either. 10 kW CKOM night pattern is north only, while day pattern has a minor lobe to south (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST) [this item I overlooked for last week`s report]

    ===========

    ** U S A. 770, Sept 20 at 1203 UT Albuquerque news items weak with a reverb: therefore I conclude I am getting both KKOBs: main 50 kW transmitter in the North Valley, still on night pattern until 1245 UT, null toward WABC and almost toward me; and the 230-watt ND Santa Fe booster which will turn off at 1245 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    Domestic MWDX to Enid OK, September 22-28, 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. 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

    ** CANADA. 1610 kHz, Fri Sept 22 at 0615 UT, YL in Luso Portuguese, talking about the press. No doubt CHHA Toronto, Voces [sic] Latinas, now with a little less QRM since PMS ANGUILLA tower is blown down. Program grid at
    http://chha1610am.ca/wp-content/uplo...610AM-2016.jpg
    is not at all helpful, merely showing ALL NIGHT MUSIC at 1-6 am M-F, and nothing on Sat & Sun; oh look, it`s a biyear old, but what comes up direct from the current homepage (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ==========

    ** OKLAHOMA. 532.5 & 650.8, Sept 26 at 2335 UT, steady unmodulated carriers. On a hunch, I calculate the difference, 118.3 kHz, and check for some others at the same separation: there they are! On 769.1 and 887.4, at least. I don`t have any other radio encended but this NRD-545, so suspect these are internally generated, altho unnoticed before: Yes: starting with 118.3 kHz itself on the LW band; but wait: try switching from the Wellbrook to the notverylongwire, and they go away, so it`s really the ALA-330S producing them; but, why? (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ==========

    ** U S A. 700, Sept 27 at 2045 UT, groundwave to quiet spot in western Enid on caradio, end of `Despacito` song, prompt ID for KHSE 700, Wylie etc., and K281CS 104.1 attributed to 8 cities (but there are a lot more suburbs than that in The Metroplex), and still saying ``This station is for rent. Please contact John Harmon, 972-904-4904``, then rap song in English. I bet they play some S Asian tunes too. Day power is one sesquikW and day pattern has a lobe toward OKC, me too; but a notch due north:
    https://radio-locator.com/cgi-bin/patg?id=KHSE-AM&h=D
    (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 990, Sept 28 at 1226 UT, after failing to pull an ID from a station in English inviting local PSAs, un-nulling the Spanish which is certainly KFCD Farmersville TX, one of the Metroplex stations which hijacked a frequency from poor Wichita Falls: gospel harmonies in Spanish, promo preaching event Sept 30 in Area Code 214, ``tres ángeles`` codeword for that 7D Adventist sect, two IDs in passing, the next at 1231, sound like ``Radio Movimiento`` but not positive about the word. Maybe program rather than station name. Can`t find any correlation online with KFCD, but rather surely unrelated: Radio Movimiento, KPCN-LP 95.9 FM, Portland OR, which is secular about Hispanicism (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1310, Sept 24 at 0049 UT, Hilltopper Sports Network, ad for TNN(?) Mobile; interview with guy from US Bank supporting this game and United Way, before kickoff, mentions Mandalay (?) Bay, then clinched by ``southern Kentucky``, ``Hilltoppers`` team, ``Bowling Green area `` mentions; so it must be WTTL Madisonville, which is west of B.G., rather than the other KY in the far east. WTTL: 1500/40 watts U1 even tho it`s after sunset, breaking format from ``Classic Hits 103.5`` translator. The Hilltoppers are at WKU in Bowling Green (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1540, Sept 24 at 0054 UT, UNI Panthers volleyball, pizza ad, other local ads, ``on the Panthers Sports Network``, dominating frequency is KXEL Waterloo IA as if it`s on 50 kW ND day pattern rather than night with a null to the south. Official September sunset was 0015 UT (October: 2330). Volleyball?! Imagine that; must not have been any football game they could diffuse this Saturday night (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1897, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

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

    UNIDENTIFIED. 1130, Sept 24 at 0046 UT something in Spanish here with romantic music, rough DF ENE/WSW, avoiding KWKH game. Two Mexicans at that angle are XEHN Nogales, IRCA-listed as talk, and XEMOS Los Mochis, Éxtasis Digital. Those fit better than any SS 1130 in NRC AM Log, in CA, GA, TN, TX. However, our sunset was only 0026 UT, so probably too early for the NW Mexicans or KSDO San Diego. How about WYXE Gallatin (Nashville) TN, 2.3 kW daytimer, religious? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    Mini-Daytime DX-pedition to NW OK

    ** OKLAHOMA [and non]. Daytime LW beacon bandscan Sept 28 at 2050 UT includes: 356 PTT, 350 RG, and 341 EI. Per http://www.dxinfocentre.com/ndb.htm
    356 PTT is Pratt KS, 341 EI is Enid OK of course, but no listing for 350 RG! (NOT to be confused with RG on 352 from Rarotonga!)
    MARE Log Summary Aug 2017 reminds us that our RG is still on the air:
    350 RG +1.0 -1.0 Oklahoma City OK, Will Rogers World A/P; 03 Apr (HF), 10 Sep (DT) (Glenn Hauser, Great Salt Plains OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** OKLAHOMA. 1040, Sept 28 driving by the transmitter site of KGWA 960, twice, just west of it on north-south Oakwood Road, I am tuned to one of its spur frequencies, and observe that only at quite close range, it is strongest and clearly audible in noise, just to the north, but a null to the west despite being closest to the 4-tower parallelogram there, thus matching roughly the daytime direxional pattern on 960 itself, NNW/SSE to favor the rest of Enid and incidentally OKC beyond, where it can hardly be missed tuning between WKY and KTOK (if anyone ever does that any more). KGWA spur also on 880 making a SAH with KRVN Lexington NE, plus and minus almost exactly 80 kHz; why? (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** OKLAHOMA. 1360 & 1420, Sept 28 at 1858 UT, the KCRC 1390 Enid spurs are still audible out of town at Helena, making slightly different hets against real 1360 and 1420 stations; but not the second-order ones on 1330 and 1450 I can hear in town (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1090, Sept 28 at 1854 UT, Catholic Radio discussing whether this one or 1190 has a better signal in certain areas, during apparent fundraiser. 1090 is KEXS Excelsior Springs MO, the highest-frequency KC-market station to make it here on midday groundwave, 472 km = 293 miles. Has a CP (no longer merely an APP) for increase from 8 to 10 kW daytime, same pattern with major lobe WSW but broad enough for some of that to the SW (Glenn Hauser, Helena OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1130, Sept 28 at 1857 UT, from this angle too still no audible daytime signal from KLEY Wellington KS. Its 250 watts are either off, or extremely direxional away from OK (Glenn Hauser, Helena OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1150, Sept 28 at 1856 UT, I am bandscanning on caradio near Helena OK, NW of Enid. This frequency mainly bears KSAL Salina KS, but underneath is C&W music making a fast SAH. The latter could either be 1000-watt KNED McAlester OK, 289 km = 179 miles, or 530-watt KOLJ Quanah TX (across the SW corner of OK), virtually equidistant at 284 km = 176 miles; both with C&W formats and all three of them non-direxional daytime (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1370, Sept 28 at 1859 UT, still no signal audible from KGNO Dodge City KS. Can`t believe it`s funxioning at 5 kW ND which should be making it on daytime groundwave across the Ogallala Aquifer, only 205 km = 127 miles. Is it gone, QRP, or really out of whack direxional away? (Glenn Hauser, Helena OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1510, Sept 28 at 1859 UT, promo Rockin` M Theater, car ad for Hays KS, ID for KNNS Larned and KRMR-FM Hays [105.7], 1900 UT Fox ``news`` (Glenn Hauser, Helena OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 92.9, Sept 28 at 1920 UT, only thing of interest on an FM bandscan is weak signal in Spanish mixing with weak signal in English. Per WTFDA FM Database, no OKies on 92.9 are SS, but one Kansan:
    KMML, (// KSMM 101.5), 92.9, CIMARRON KS, 32.0 kW H&V, 186.0 m HAAT, 37-56-30, 100-18-44, Spanish, REGIONAL MEXICAN, LA MEXICANA. Cimarron is between Dodge and Garden Cities, 232 km = 144 miles (Glenn Hauser, Helena OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    UNIDENTIFIED. 659, Sept 28 at 1900 UT, The Answer 660 in The Metroplex has QRM from a carrier 1 kHz below it which cuts on for 5 seconds, off for 1 second, repeats. Loops east/west. Not coming from my car or anything in it, and not noted anywhere else. Not a harmonic from LW as nothing like it circa 330, 220 or 165 kHz. I`m parked at the military monument just south of Helena OK with three antique tanx, not looping toward them either. Possibly connected with security system at the Helena prison, a few miles away?

    ** MEXICO. 770, Sept 24 at 1222, Suprema Corte de Justicia mandatory federal PSA, earthquake relief PSA, ``Grupo Chávez Radio``, loops SW and 1225 rock music, so that makes it XEREV Los Mochis, Sinaloa. Best XE signal holding up this late, our sunrise just now at 1221 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** MEXICO. 870, Sept 23 at 1202, XETAR Guachochi, Chihuahua, La Voz de la Sierra Tarahumara, is playing Mexican NA performed a cappella by amateur children`s choir, different version than heard on countless other stations. 1203 sign-on in Spanish and native languages, all of which have no alternative but to pronounce the call letters repeatedly in Spanish. 1205 plug parent org CDI with Jew`s harp accompaniment. We are now in season to hear this 10 kW daytimer well at sign-on; our sunrise 1220 UT, theirs 1257 UT, per

    I am reliably informed that the R. Martí facility at Vaca Key survived the recent atmospheric events with only minor damage, although not on air as yet, but reportedly will be shortly (Glenn Hauser, OK, Sept 26, WORLD OF RADIO 1897, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    UNIDENTIFIED. 860, Sept 29 at 1221 UT, Mexican music, ID over it as ``La Compera`` or something like that; DF from WSW/ENE which could put it in the US rather than Mexico. KNAI Phoenix? That`s Radio Campesina, and this word has only three syllables. At 1224 UT definite TC for 5:24 am = UT -7 zone, which means it has to be AZ, Sonora or BCN, as there are no such stations in CA or NV, and ``La Contrera`` (?), plug for Mexico City earthquake aid.

    Sonora`s 860 is XEHX Ciudad Obregón, which is widely shown to be ``La Mia``. BCN`s is XEMO Tijuana, ``La Poderosa``. So have any of these changed name? (There is/was a La Campera on 1320 in Ciudad Jiménez, Chihuahua, XEJZ.) Initially atop KKOW KS, making 2.7 Hz SAH, and losing out to its weekdaily polka/birthday spot at 1226 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    I'm not sure what you had here on 860, Glenn, but XEHX is confirmed to be off, per Facebook and I find no changes for XEMO or KNAI. 73 KAZ (Neil Kazaross, ABDX via DXLD)
