    Domestic MWDX to Enid OK, December 2-8, 2017

    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. 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. 333 kHz, Dec 7 at 0708 UT, beacon QE and dash, but not listed. Must really be QT, in Thunder Bay, Ontario, dah instead of a dit.

    341 kHz, Dec 7 at 0710 UT, beacon YYU, no dash, mixing at different pitch, so not exactly same frequency as my local on 341, EI Enid. YYU is in Kapuskasing, Ont., also per http://www.dxinfocentre.com/ndb.htm

    That`s neat; I was not expecting anything so exotic on a rare foray into the LW NDB area. Kapuskasing was also the location of a hot analog TVDX target years ago (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** CANADA [and non]. 860, Dec 7 at 0658 UT, French mixing with C&W and at 0700 mixing with KKOW ID, I do detect ``Première`` as CBC French calls itself, but that`s not enough, as there are two of them, CJBC Toronto, 50/50 kW U1, more likely; and slightly further (1883 vs 1766 km), CBKF-2 Saskatoon, 10/10 kW U4; presumably // during informations en sommet de l`heure, but otherwise deux timezones apart for programmation. DFing would nail it but I`m not on the DX-398. CBKF-2 has major lobes N and S, day and night, with nulls toward Toronto and Prince Rupert (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

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

    ** U S A. 660, Dec 8 at 0115 UT, Navajo drumming and chanting, dominating, so again suspect it`s ND rather than protecting NYC. Official FCC December sunset for KTNN Window Rock AZ is 0000 UT. This programming *really* stands out, making any further ID unnecessary.

    A bit earlier I was also hearing cheater KHAC, 880-USB, and echoey KKOB & KKOB, 770. NYC is just out of luck (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 880-CUSB, Dec 2 at 1328 UT, `Creation Moment` nonsense, 1330 UT no ID and into `Parenting Today`s Teens`, neither in Navajo, but obviously KHAC Tse Bonito NM, right across from Window Rock AZ, as E/W DF also fits, and totally overcomes KRVN from the N. (Also just had C&W from E/W on 660-DSB, no doubt weaker neighbor, 50 kW ND KTNN). KHAC obviously on 10 kW ND day power as usual (always?), not 430 watts ND night. Them cheatin` Indians, or rather Anglo missionary impositions by Western Indian Ministries. FCC shows KHAC`s legal SR/SS times for December are 1415 and 2400 UT. And, standard remark about noting the very few SSB US MW stations! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

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

    UNIDENTIFIED. 1440, Dec 8 at 0059 UT, in the mix a variety of tones past 0103 UT; they are not pure, not musical, and are random pitches and durations rather than sweeps or some kind of intentional testing. Can`t get a DF on it as equal on N/S and E/W antennas (which might mean it`s roughly NE/SW, or NW/SE) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    XEQR is not on air since Grupo Radio Centro shut off in May 2017, also are off-air XERC-790 and XEJP-1150.

    Mostly Mexican: One more:

    ** MEXICO. 830, Dec 6 at 0137, something in Spanish with WCCO attenuated by aurora and nulled; all I can catch is a definite mention of 105.7 FM, so is it the usual Unitedstatesian spoiler, WFNO, Norco, Louisiana? NRC AM Log shows its translator wagger is on 97.5.

    Now to check the IRCA Mexican Log: here`s the one with a 105.7: XELN, Linares, Nuevo León, 5000/250 watts, ``La Caliente``. It`s also the only 830/105.7 Mexican combo in WRTH 2017 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    XELN has a continuity obligation — it *must* be on air, so it has to be them.

    I didn't know until reading this that XEQR 1030 and XERC 790 Mexico City stations were silent and gone. This explains the lack of anthems on those channels on my occasional 0000 and 0600 CST (local there) checks. And means when I do hear anthems on these channels I'd better be paying more attention. Glenn, I appreciate your regular posts. Raymie, is there a list of silent Mexican AM stations?

    ** CANADA. 680, Dec 10 at 0700 UT, ``680 CJOB, Your News Station``, then news from Canadian Press starting with carbon monoxide in BC, and an ABC correspondent in Alabama. Dominant on my east-west longwire, even tho from the north. All 50 kW supposed to head NNE from Winnipeg at night, and most of it in daytime. And is CJOB really in $tereo as in NRC AM Log? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

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

    ** U S A. I`m at the kite field in north-central Enid, away from power lines, but too close to 1390 & 960, undertaking a low-noon bandscan on the caradio, as local mean noon here is always 1832 UT. Nothing much on low band, not even 670 KLTT Denver, which normally barely reaches on groundwave. But lots of skywave CCI above 1100, e.g. 1130, presumably KS & LA. Further:

    1250, Dec 9 at 1850 UT, good signal in Spanish, obviously KYYS, Kansas City KS, La Equis, La Súper Estación, which makes it here only on skywave, 25 kW with major lobe to the WSW while we are SW of it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1270, Dec 9 at 1850 UT, Spanish also atop this frequency, i.e. KFLC, Benbrook (The Metroplex) TX which is now ESPN [sic] Deportes, updating the NRC AM Log. 50 kW almost ND, with groundwave just beyond Norman per radio-locator. Totally overcoming Tulsa / Claremore which is our normal daytime groundwave occupant. Benbrook? A 21K suburb, SW side of Fort Worth, now with a claim to fame; but radio-locator site pin is on the east side of FW. 1270 was the original KFJZ (Glenn Hauser, midday bandscan on caradio at kite field in north-central Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    A quick clarification - KFLC is Univisión Deportes, not ESPN Deportes. 1540 KZMP is the ESPN Deportes affiliate for the Dallas area. Most (all?) of the Univisión-operated stations (KTNQ-1020, KLSQ-870, etc.) now air Univisión Deportes, but this does not appear to be a full-time format, as I often hear these stations reverting back to the old "Amor Celestial" Spanish contemporary Christian format, or running a variety of music. Along these lines, I'm pretty confident that the UNID ESPN Deportes 1020 you reported a few months ago was KTNQ running Univisión Deportes. 73 (Tim Hall, CA, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    KTNQ is 50/50 kW U4 Los Ángeles, day and night null toward me and KDKA --- don`t think I`d ever heard it or any previous call (gh, DXLD)

    ** U S A. 1280, Dec 14 at 1347 UT, 1352 UT, and 1427 UT chex, KSOK Arkansas City KS is open carrier, dead air, but music finally resumed at 1511 UT check. Who cares? As long as they`ve got the paltry FM translator going, inaudible here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1540, Dec 9 at 1853 UT, KXEL Waterloo IA is skywaving in, with oldtime radio, drama also plugging the DAV. 1857 UT it`s `Classic Radio Theater` from USA Radio Network, fades for ID around hourtop, but matches KXEL sked for Sat:
    ``Noon-1:00 p.m. KXEL Classic Radio Matinee``
    And KXEL IDs in passing at 1907 UT (Glenn Hauser, midday bandscan on caradio at kite field in north-central Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1540.116v, Dec 10 at 2351 UT, first on caradio on way to an Xmas program, still tuned to 1540 for yesterday`s KXEL midday reception, now a big low-audible-heterodyne (LAH) and classic rock music, at first not sure that`s the station causing the het. Soon ID as ``KGBC (?) 1480``, with three Houston suburbs, ``we`ve got you covered``. The one I recognize and retain is Clear Lake.

    The 1480 station is KLVL Pasadena, NOT KGBC, but I`m positive the letters uttered were nothing like KLVL, altho first sounded like KGBD. It so happens that the two are jointly owned, by Siga, so are they now running // and KLVL also branded as ``KGBC``? 1480 is blocked here by Spanish from KBXD Metroplex. Next break at 2356 UT of same format, got three more suburbs covered, but this time really as ``KGBC 1540``. Natch, fade into QRM for hourtop legal(?) ID. But Michael Jackson playing until 0002 UT December 11.

    Back home on the R75 at 0155 UT, I measure the off-frequency and do match it to the above stunting. 0158 UT, another ``we`ve got you covered`` slogan, hard rock. 0202 UT fade for quick mumbled legal(?) ID, then a chiropractic ad which starts out sounding like a PSA, but with a 713-phone; also frequently heard something with an 877 toll-free number.

    A year or two ago, KGBC Galveston was off-frequency like this for a long time, but more recently had attained 1540.0 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1908, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    1540, Dec 13 at 0021 UT check, ID right away for KEDA San Antonio and TexMex music, no het from KGBC like last night about 1540.11. As I hoped, Steven Luce in Houston TX has replied Dec 12 in the DXLD yg to my log of KGBC 1540+ Galveston also referring to 1480:

    ``Glenn, I can confirm that KLVL and KGBC have been // at recent checks here in Houston, running oldies music and a very occasional commercial. Both are brokered time stations looking for new clients. The previous programmer on KLVL (which had moved from KYND, and before that, KJOZ) only lasted a few weeks on 1480. That group has not resurfaced anywhere.

    I can hear the het on 1540 during critical hours. Nighttime at my QTH KGBC is completely lost in the co-channel pileup. No useable reception of KLVL at night, either, although day signal is good. During critical hours KLVL often clashes with skywave from KBXD [Metroplex].

    Speaking of KYND 1520, the station is still running the promotional loop looking for a new programmer to lease airtime. I have noticed that the station is not signing on until 0800 local (1400 UT) so chances of it getting out during morning critical hours are reduced.

    Houston has a lot of brokered time stations on AM, and we may have reached a saturation point, with not enough potential clients for all of them`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1908, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1560, Dec 9 at 1856 UT, gospel huxter in English atop sports from OKC, 1858 UT fading. I would have guessed KKAA Aberdeen SD, but it is supposedly off the air pending new owner, ex-Family Radio. Surely instead closer 10 kW ND, KLNG Council Bluffs IA. Also getting ``The Zone`` on 1620 from Omaha at 1855 UT (Glenn Hauser, midday bandscan on caradio at kite field in north-central Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1700, Dec 15 at 1422 UT, dead air from stronger station, presumably KKLF Richardson TX, DF seems to fit, while English talk audible from understation, presumably KBGG Des Moines IA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

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

    UNIDENTIFIED. 900.15, Dec 11 at 0635 UT, something here making a het upon the 900s (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    UNIDENTIFIED. 1500+, Dec 15 at 1416 UT, het on the plus side to KSTP, roughly NNW/SSE. Doubt it`s my closest KJIM Sherman, often audible and on-frequency; there are three other Texans, closest to the bearing being KANI Wharton; or from LA, KCLF New Roads (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    UNIDENTIFIED. 1710, Dec 15 at 0724 UT, music is JBA but S9 on the meter, sounds like pop and then English? announcer. In that case probably not Retén lo que Tienes, Baton Rouge pirate which typically aired screaming gospel huxter in Spanish, not heard for some weeks (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** KIRITIMATI. 846, Dec 10 at 0548, can`t pull a JBA carrier from R. Kiribati, but I can get one at 0655. 24 hours earlier I could not hear it at all, but so marginal at best that I did not conclude it was off, as some Pacific-rimians did.

    846, Dec 11 at 0531, JJBA carrier from presumed R. Kiribati; none audible at another check 0630. Need to monitor it for longer periods, as some have reported drastic ups and downs in signal levels (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1908, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** KIRITIMATI. 846, Dec 17 at 0707, JJBA carrier from presumed R. Kiribati (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1909, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** KIRITIMATI. 846, Dec 18 at 0629, JBA but steady carrier from R. Kiribati. Walt Salmaniw in Victoria BC says he is ``seeing`` it as early as 0300ish. Now visiting Hawaii, Gary DeBock tells IRCA Dec 17: ``846-Christmas Island is by far the strongest DU here in Kona, but it seems to have a serious issue with the transmitter cutting out intermittently`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** KIRITIMATI. 846, Dec 20 at 0704, reliable JBA but steady carrier from presumed R. Kiribati (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** KIRITIMATI. 846, Dec 21 at 0528, JBA carrier from R. Kiribati, but not heard at next check 0611 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** TONGA. 1017, Dec 20 at 1134, JBA carrier vs 1020 splash, presumably R. Tonga now reported to be leaving its carrier on all night. But there are also Christchurch and Sydney stations on 1017 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** MARSHALL ISLANDS. 1098, Dec 19 at 1333, JBA carrier on the R75 with E-W longwire, no doubt V7AB, which leaves it on all night, after sign-off circa 1130(?). I was first checking 1017 kHz for Tonga which reportedly just started doing the same, but could not detect it. (846 Kiritimati signs off much earlier and does not leave carrier on, so no sunrise DX from it) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** CUBA. 1620, Dec 21 at 0118, R. Rebelde asserting thrice ``Armando y --- en Concierto!!``, good modulation and not // 5025 Rebelde. I suppose the MW outlet has switched to Rebelde FM feed as it often does (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    UNIDENTIFIED. I have been filing my recent logs of JBA carriers from Pacific MW stations under their countries, since there is very little doubt about their source, and very unlikely I will ever get any audio. But anyone is free to consider them better headed UNID: so far, see KIRITIMATI, MARSHALL ISLANDS, TONGA. I don`t count countries logged, nor chase QSLs, so I am not trying to push the limits to gain something I don`t deserve (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** NEWFOUNDLAND & LABRADOR. 2598-USB, Dec 18 at 0119 UT, VP S8 vs S6 band noise level, YL with marine weather in English. CG sked
    http://www.ccg-gcc.gc.ca/Marine-Comm...AMN-2017/Part2
    shows starting at 0107 UT is VOK Labrador, apparently controlled from Goose Bay but transmitted from St. Anthony, Newfoundland. Nothing heard on 2749-USB at this time from Nova Scotia area (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

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

    ** U S A. 1540.12, Dec 21 at 0120 UT, KGBC Galveston is off-frequency again making big het with 1540.0 stations; sounds like Aretha, and shortly at 0123 UT, ``We`ve got you covered`` on 1540, naming three more suburbs. I wonder how many separate announcements they have like this? Houston has *lots* of suburbs, but how well 1540 & 1480 cover them, especially at night, is debatable, and Siga is obviously having a hard time drumming up business (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1540.12, Dec 22 at 0020 UT, KGBC Galveston TX off-frequency tonight with Houston ad, music, hetting 1540. Amid all the QRM I thought I was also hearing some Brazuguese, but if so, surely not from Brasil (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1710, Dec 18 at 0630 UT, screaming Spanish gospel huxter, so that`s typical Retén lo que Tienes spewage from the Bâton Rouge LA pirate, poor signal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1710 kHz, Dec 22 at 1310 UT, screaming gospel huxter in Spanish, so presumed Retén lo que Tienes, pirate from Bâton Rouge LA, very poor signal. But I am not the only one sometimes hearing some other pirate here, from where?

    On the NRC gg, David Yocis posted an FCC NOUO dated Dec 19 about RlqT`s FM 107.7 being busted Nov 21 ---- but no mention of the AM 1710, as if the FCC were completely unaware of it (check the website!). The full notice will appear in DXLD (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Mark Sills, Dallas, told me Dec 28, ``Starting around December 5, I noticed 1080 KRLD has dropped iboc. I hope they keep the damn thing off. It makes so much noise it makes DXing impossible. You'd be surprised what I was able to pick up with that noise gaughan``.

    1157 & 1183, Jan 5 at 1351 UT check, our worst IBOC noise around here is still from 1170 KFAQ Tulsa (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1110, Jan 5 at 1346 UT, under KFAB am hearing high-pitched singing in South Asian style, surely KVTT, updating/contradicting this: ``1110 KVTT TX Mineral Wells – Reported silent`` (Bill Hale, TX, update to NRC AM Log, AM Switch, NRC DX News Jan 8, published Dec 31)

    It`s a 50 kW daytimer, or 39 kW critical hours, with Asian format; really stood out around SR/SS vs KFAB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    ** U S A. 1200, Jan 5 at 1353 UT, not much signal from WOAI, but Spanish phone interview about Mexican politix, from external POV, mentioning ``su país``, and ``Buenos Días, América``. Could it originate from VOA, which used to call its morning Spanish show that, long gone from SW? Does it still exist by satellite-webcast-affiliates? By 1400 UT, Chicago mentions and ``deportes radio`` so must be WRTO which is with Univisión Deportes, but not 100% sports (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

    UNIDENTIFIED. 1300, Fri Dec 29 at 1412 UT, old-fashioned gospel huxter wrapping it up with a prayer, and program ID as `Word of Prophecy`, address Jaxonvil FL, which means it is this:
    http://www.wordofprophecy.org/
    the website with everything but a station/schedule list! Fades out in time for an ID if any before another program at 1415 UT.

    Definitely loops east/west. Daytime 1300 inhabitant here is KAKC Tulsa, but it`s sports. What else could this be? Format, language do not fit for the TX or AR, or even CO 1300 stations in the NRC AM Log.

    Why not 50 kW WNQM Nashville TN? Unlike its SW WWCR, WNQM does not provide a program schedule, but a list of programs, not including Word of Prophecy:
    http://www.1300wnqm.com/pgm-links_wnqm.html
    but I still think it`s most likely the source of this (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
