    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)

    Maybe Jorgenson had to break the lease with Salem to go forward with a deal. I know he's been badly wanting to get rid of the station. With seven towers, no way in the world would they want to move the site and do two complete engineering studies and rebuilds. Regards, (Jerry Kiefer, FL, ex-KBXD, May 21, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
