    Mostly Mexican MWDX to Enid OK, March 10-16, 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

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

    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. 1300, UT Monday March 13 at 0436, Radio Mexicana ID from XEP, and music, evidently not running `La Hora Nacional` now as would be expected Sundays at 10 pm local, since Juárez has certainly copied El Paso by going on MDT of UT -6, unlike further south in México, no DST until April 2 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    Domestic MWDX to Enid OK, March 10-12, 2017

    Note: this report concerns logs before the imposition of DST, so EST conversions are still called for. A separate report for the EDT period will follow.

    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

    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

    ** NEWFOUNDLAND. 2598-USB, March 12 at 0135 UT, roboYL in English with marine weather, citing some UTCs and some Eastern Standards; vs S9+10 lightning crashes. Scheduled starting at 0137 UT is VOK, Labrador via both Cartwright and Hopedale, but if timing is precise, preceding it from 0107 UT is VOK via St Anthony site. Nothing on 2749 now, but see CANADA. I THINK all these stay on same UT schedules despite imposition of DST, right? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** CANADA. 2749-USB, March 12 at 0152 UT, roboYL with maritime weather in English, S9+10 vs QRN level merely S9; VCS Halifax via Chebogue NS site scheduled starting at 0140 UT. Nothing heard on 2598 now, but see NEWFOUNDLAND earlier (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ==========

    ** OKLAHOMA. 1520, March 12 at 0155 UT, KOKC with a gun show explaining exactly where to shoot people to cause the most damage. Good to know! Outro as `Frontlines of Freedom` on a growing network of outlets (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ==========

    ** U S A. 1020, KMMQ Plattsmouth, NE: regarding my log of this station mentioning ESPN Deportes, Wayne Heinen, NRC AM Log Editor, checked with Andy Ruback of the NRG group in Omaha owning it, who says it is still same format as before, ``Regional Mexican``. Local DXers Carl Mann and Rick Dau agree. So what I heard must have been a fleeting reference for some reason (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1450, March 10 at 0619 UT bandscan on the E-W antenna, briefly atop the mush is an ad with an address in Portales, so it`s KSEL NM, which is only 950 instead of the usual 1000 graveyard watts. KSEL is on the ``second ring`` of 1450 stations from here beyond Woodward and Altus, along with KLMX Clayton NM. Portales distance 344 miles = 553 km, making me grateful for such a log from one of the gateways to NM. BTW, KSEL used to be the call of a Lubbock station, 950 until 1987y, now KJTV (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    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. 1540.11, March 13 at 0434 UT, off-frequency het loops about SSE/NNW, not much signal from KXEL, and with notching on the NRD-545, separable from various signals on 1540.0. Playing classic rock music. I bet it`s KGBC Galveston TX, which for many months in 2015-2016 was off frequency, but no het lately, presumably temporarily fixed until now. At 0434 UT, partial ID as ``##101.5 FM & 1540 AM``, refers to a website ending in 1015.com. Researching later:

    WTFDA FM Database confirms the 1540/101.5 translator for KGBC:
    ``K268DE // KGBC-1540 101.5 GALVESTON TX 0.22 0.22 0.0 0.0 29-18-52 94-48-19 Chinese ETHNIC/ASIAN``

    It used to be Chinese with CRI relay // 1520 KYND but that was done long ago. Wikipedia has some info, starting with newer? but still outdated format:

    ``The current format is a business talk format.[5] [sic] In 2016, after 69 years of broadcasting as "1540 KGBC", Siga changed the station's image to reflect the new 101.5 translator dial position attached to the heritage AM``

    Then I search out this website unknown to Wikipedia:
    http://www.gc1540.com/
    which still exists but refers to www.gc1015fm.com --- GC stands for Gulf Coast.

    ``Visit our Facebook page
    Check out the Live Surf Cam Courtesy of Gtownsurf.com
    K242BG 101.5 fm (Galveston) and KGBC 1540 am (Galveston & Houston), keeping Galveston Island and Galveston County connected with great music and entertainment Owned and operated by SIGA Broadcasting on Galveston Island Texas``

    The AM appendage still claims to broadcast on 1540, rather than 1540.11 kHz! Clearly it`s mainly music now, with local talk, and not particularly business. Check out the Local Programs tab (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1869, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    Glenn, KGBC has been running an Oldies format for a few months now. The 101.5 translator is fairly new, but covers much less area than the daytime AM signal. No het on 1540 when checked recently. Unsure if Oldies is "permanent" as the new FM outlet may have convinced Siga to try something other than a succession of brokered formats. The nighttime KGBC signal doesn't make it to my QTH, some 70 miles away --- buried in the 1540 pileup (Stephen Luce, Houston, Texas, 0021 UT March 14, dxldyg via DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    1540.11, March 15 at 0109 UT, no het from KGBC Galveston TX, as heard a binite ago, so presumably back on 1540.00 (or off), with 1540 dominated by far-right talkhost presumed KXEL, and TexMexmx in background, from KEDA San Antonio. KGBC might have been on 2.5 kW daypower then too instead of 0.25 kW nite (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1869, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
