    {but I have been getting error messages there lately}

    Yes, I know MW starts at 300 kHz, but may include LW
    beacons below that for sake of completeness.

    ** OKLAHOMA. Except for a split-second glitch, we haven`t yet lost
    power in this part of Enid, unlike 4 to 6 thousand other OG&E
    customers; but circa 2300 UT Oct 27, my main 100-foot longwire antenna
    for the R75 is broken and on the ground under tree debris felled by
    severe ice storm. With a lot of icing on it, had been supported by
    three trees in a row; and before that the last segment was already
    down; once warmed up and cleared, fixing it or replacing it is not a
    very big job, but I am so sad for our poor trees! Meanwhile I can
    still try to use it, or switch to ``indoor longwire`` strung around
    the ceilings of two rooms. A third wave of freezing rain is on the way
    from El Paso (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

    ** U S A [and non]. 332-MCW kHz, Oct 30 at 0621, ND beacon IC, 400
    watts from Wichita - Picnic, Kansas [both with ICs in them!], which I
    had not heard in weeks and feared off the air. Even now it`s JBA under
    dash and QT, 1000 watts from Thunder Bay, Ontario, which had been the
    only 332 to be heard among many (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

    ** CANADA. 335-MCW kHz, Oct 30 at 0620 UT, my shortened and lowered
    unrepaired longwire still manages to inpull dash and YLD, which is
    1000 watt ND beacon from Chapleau, Ontario.

    Also 413-MCW kHz, Oct 30 at 0624, dash and YHD, 250 watts in Dryden,
    Ontario (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

    ** U S A. 426-MCW kHz, Oct 27 at 0625 UT, JBA NDB ID as IZS, which is
    25 watts from Montezuma, Georgia, SW of Warner Robins and Perry, right
    next to Oglethorpe. Nothing else unusual LW logged vs the noise level
    (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

    ** CUBA [and non]. 840, WHAS Louisville KY to be off the air again for
    tower maintenance from 0400 UT Oct 27: tnx to tip from Chris Gay, KU4A
    to the WOR iog, which quickly spread to MW-only DX groups:

    ``I just learned that 840 WHAS will go off the air again tonight for
    tower maintenance starting at midnight EDT (0400Z). The length of the
    outage was not announced.``

    At 0402 I tune in to find WHAS still on during Kentucky news, but
    after asserting ``broadcasting live 24/7``, ha2, cuts off at 0405.7*
    --- but back on in a few seconds, that was quick! During weather from
    WLKY-TV; why not WHAS-TV??, 0406 into weird talkshow, `Ground Zero`
    about ``shadow archetypes, lurkers showing up at 3 am``.

    Recheck at 0425 now WHAS is off, and the only signals I am getting
    loop SE/NW, but with splash from 850 KOA: music, 0428 Spanish? No sign
    from the south of KVJY Pharr in the RGV of TX, U4 5/1 kW, also Spanish
    which is normally the #1 competitor to WHAS. Main signal is surely 10
    kW CMHW in Santa Clara, Cuba, but has a 1.1 Hz SAH, which could be the
    other further 1 kW Cuban, CMKC, R. Revoluci?n, Palma Soriano, Santiago
    province; or some other LA. Not rechecked until 0535, WHAS still off,
    some fading faster SAH carriers on E-W longwire, but on DX-398, music
    with slow SAH dominant from SE. 0600 still that with no ID break, but
    *0601 WHAS cuts back on JIP news; 0615 check it`s off again. One more
    check before I quit, WHAS off and on at 0632*-*0633 (Glenn Hauser, OK,
    WOR)

    ** U S A. 870, Oct 28 at 2353 UT, WWL New Orleans still has plenty of
    time for commercials as the eye of Hurricane Zeta is right over the
    city. Eventually gets back to coverage, callers, and reports from
    parish sheriff(s). 0000 Oct 29 into CBS News leading with a report
    from the same WWL guy; some fades vs something hetting in its null.
    Then locally explains the modified jock schedule overnight, including
    this one coming back at 6 am [CDT] -- that is apparently his normal
    shift as he keeps saying ``good morning`` now and swears at himself
    for sodoing (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

    ** OKLAHOMA. 930, Oct 28 at 2356 UT, silly sports talk from WKY OKC
    keeps hiccuping, modulation dropping out about once a second; with BFO
    I can tell the carrier is also dropping off, timed at the rate of
    about 48/minute until it stop doing that (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

    ** U S A. WOR 2058 is available as of 1727 UT Friday October 30

    propagation outlook

    0315 UT Sunday November 1 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, Wentzville MO, not
    confirmed, just various ham news shows at chex: 0325, 0345, 0355,
    0405, 0428 when it`s TWIAR. 0455 still no WOR when I QRT. Possibly it
    played early and already finished by 0325.

      {but I have been getting error messages there lately}

      Yes, I know MW starts at 300 kHz, but may include LW
      beacons below that for sake of completeness.

      ** CANADA [and non]. 362-MCW kHz, Oct 19 at 0611 UT, dash and SB, 500
      watt NDB at Greater Sudbury, Ont. I was tuned to 363-USB; yes, on the
      plus side, and simulhearing AA which is really on 365-MCW, 100 watts
      from Fargo - Harwood, North Dakota (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

      ** U S A. 407-MCW kHz, Oct 19 at 0606 UT, ND beacon IL which is 25
      watts from wILmington, Ohio, between Cincinnati and Columbus. I was
      tuned to 405-USB. There are also two other ILs in other wILmingtons,
      DE and NC, on other frequencies, and another in kILeen, Texas (Glenn
      Hauser, OK, WOR)

      ** U S A [and non]. I`m trying out the temporary until Oct 25 KiwiSDR
      that Bill Whitacre has set up in Lubec, which is on the coast in the
      SE corner of Maine, a hot spot for trans-Atlantic MW DX. There is *too
      much*, audio almost every 9 kHz; where are the JBA carriers I can
      sweep across in only 5 minutes? Contrary to KiwiSDR boilerplate, this
      one does not work on Firefox, but does work on IE. I find it already
      set up at 9 kHz intervals, which can be toggled to 10; but above 1600
      it switches to 5-kHz steps, strange. I`m not counting countries from
      here or anywhere, so some assumptions without consequences follow, but
      open to revision. LSS at Lubec today: 2135 UT, so the DX should have
      been in a lot earlier. This is off-and-on for less than a sesquihour,
      Oct 19 from 2103, in chrono order, reference WRTH listings, u.o.s.:

      {see my International/Mexican report; only two
      domestic items excerpted here:}

      1450, at 2131, as I am tuning past 1449, can`t miss an ID for ``CFAB
      1450 AM`` which is U1 1/1 kW Windsor, Nova Scotia, in the centre
      between Dartmouth and Wolfville, CANADA.

      1530, at 2157, I`m standing by to hear even a trace of Yankee Doodle,
      from the VOA Pinheira, SAO TOME 2200 sign-off, as often recommended by
      Mark Connelly, but no luck. However, a jumble of weak signals is
      suddenly eclipsed by one station from *2159, ID as WVBF and on FM
      99.7, AC (780) phone fits for Boston-suburban area ring as this is
      from Middleborough Center, Massachusetts; and into reading anti-Trump
      editorial from Bloomberg News. The trouble is, 2200 UT is FCC October
      local sunset for WVBF [November: 2130] when it is supposed to drop
      from 940 watts ND critical hours to FOUR WATTS NIGHT power. Day power
      is 5 kW, both direxional broadly toward the northeast, i.e. Lubec.
      Instead they have powered *up*! Anyhow, seems like an interesting
      station, per NRC AM Log, ``Hometown Talk Radio``, address in Taunton
      MA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

        ** CANADA. 218-MCW kHz, Oct 15 at 0603 UT, NDB dash and RL, which is
        980 watts from Red Lake, Ontario.

        269-MCW kHz, Oct 15 at 0601 UT, NDB dash and UDE, which is 50 watts
        from Delta, Manitoba.

        274-MCW kHz, Oct 15 at 0600 UT, ND beacon dash and YPM, 25 watts from
        Pikangikum, Ontario, which DXinfocentre.com marx as decommissioned --
        but not, it`s back! Where`s that?

        http://www.ifna.ca/article/pikangikum-116.asp

        ``Overview --- Pikangikum First Nation is located on Pikangikum Lake,
        approximately 100 km northwest of Red Lake, Ontario. It is
        approximately 15 minutes by plane from Red Lake to Pikangikum.
        Pikangikum is one of the largest First Nation communities in Northern
        Ontario with the highest on-reserve population in Northern Ontario,
        approximately 2,300. An estimated 75% of the population is under
        twenty-five years of age... (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

        ** CANADA. 248-MCW kHz, Oct 14 at 0614 UT, ND beacon dash and WG,
        which is 1000 watts from WinnipeG, Manitoba, *much* stronger than the
        others now and often:

        250-MCW kHz, Oct 14 at 0613 UT, ND beacon dash and FO, which is 1600
        watts from Flin Flon, Manitoba. ``Flin Flon shares the distinction of
        being named after a character in an adventure novel with Tarzana,
        California.`` --- bing. 2066 km = 1284 statute miles from Enid.

        258-MCW kHz, Oct 14 at 0612 UT, ND beacon dash and ZSJ which is 1000
        watts from Sandy Lake, Ontario, not South Africa. I was tuned to
        257-USB. Wikipedia:

        ``Sandy Lake First Nation (or Negaw-zaaga'igan Nitam-Anishinaabe,
        Oji-Cree: ᓀᑲᣞ ᓵᑲᐦᐃᑲᐣ ᓂᑕᒼ ᐊᓂᔑᓈᐯ) is an independent Oji-Cree First
        Nations band government. The First Nations community, in the west part
        of Northern Ontario, is located in the Kenora District, 227 km (141
        mi) northeast of Red Lake, Ontario.`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

        ** CANADA. 223-MCW kHz, Oct 18 at 0625 UT, dash and YYW, 1000-watt ND
        beacon at Armstrong, Ontario. Tuned to 222-USB.

        290-MCW kHz, Oct 18 at 0629 UT, dash and QR, 100-watt NDB at Regina,
        Saskatchewan. Tuned to 289-USB (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) See USA also

        ** U S A. 293-MCW kHz, Oct 16 at 0643 UT, common FBY, 25 watts from
        Fairbury, Nebraska, with QRM from another NDB at same pitch, hard to
        separate, until their slightly different periods unoverlap them, UI:
        which is 30 watts from QUIncy, Illinois, where they pronounce it
        Quinsy instead of Quinzy as in Mass. Just in time before UI fades out
        (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

        ** U S A. 341-MCW kHz, Oct 18 at 0112 UT, ND beacon DIN, underneath
        local EI Enid. DIN is 25 watts from Sherman-DenIsoN, Texas, just
        across in Baja Oclajoma. Normally I hear OIN in Oberlin, Kansas,
        instead. This is on different receiver and antenna than on my ~06 UT
        beacon searches so maybe that explain it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

        ** U S A. 408-MCW kHz, Oct 18 at 0643 UT, JDM, 25-watt NDB at Colby -
        Wheatfield, Kansas. One wonders how a call with no connexion to the
        listed location came about? So I try searching on JDM Colby, finding
        ``Colby Howard Lands at JD Motorsports For Majority of 2020 ``
        about NASCAR - that`s a stretch! Further down are linx to JDM as
        NAVAID, but no call significance. Even further down, there is a JDM
        Enterprises, LLC, in Colby among 55 other places:
        https://opencorporates.com/companies/us_ks/8804627
        but what does it do? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

        ** U S A. 880, Oct 13 at 0610 UT, amid TA carrier search including one
        on 882, I notice that KRVN Lexington, Nebraska is still carrying Jim
        Bohannon during this hour, despite missing from his website
        station-finder, as has just appeared in NRC DX News (Glenn Hauser, OK,
        WOR)

        UNIDENTIFIED. 1710, Oct 13 at 0618 UT, JBA talk at the end of my TA
        carrier search, probably the Hudson County NJ TIS.

        BTW, I wonder what happened to that religious pirate in B?ton Rouge on
        1690? Not heard since sometime last year. Website emphasizes streaming
        of radio and TV but still claims 1690 toward the bottom of this page:
        https://www.radioretenloquetienes.com/
        And even displays the FCC logo with a reference to Part 15. They used
        to claim an FM frequency too (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

              • International MWDX to Enid OK, January 18-24, 2021

                Note: far too belatedly, I am retiring the ``Mostly Mexican`` headers. I retained it
                merely to keep this all in one thread. It seems most of my Mexican MWDX occurs
                during the autumn months and certainly none lately.

                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
                http://www.hard-core-dx.com/index.php?topic=Hauser

                My MW DX reports starting August
                2011 are archived in this forum with
                open access [maybe]:

                NOTE: On January 19 I successfully uploaded to the above forum all? the MWDX
                reports which had been missed since September. However, I understand that
                the entire forum is in danger of deletion due to lack of software support updates.

                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;

                nothing more than 3 kW from W Europe = Ireland; 20/50 kW from Mideast

                UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search, January 19 at
                1327-1345: Looping NW on the DX-398 so from Japan/E Asia: 594, 693,
                747, 774, 828, 972, 1323, 1422, 1566. From WSW so Australia: 702,
                1548. Uncertain DF: 1503, 1512, both nothing more than 10 kW from
                either. LSR here was 1341 UT.

                1566, from 1342 Jan 19, paying special attention to surely 250 kW
                Jeju, South Korea, but seems to have a slight beat from second
                carrier, China? But no more than 10 kW there. At 1344 a 3+1
                timesignal(?) cuts thru and then the station weakens, i.e. when FEBC
                change antenna patterns and languages from Japanese to Chinese. Is
                that non-hour TS typical of HLAZ?

                One of the clubs has compiled a timesignal reference but I have not
                found it again (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

                Richard Langley replies on the WOR iog: ``It is attached. See FEBC in
                the list. You're welcome. -- Richard Langley``

                And thank you. I see there are some others with 3+1, altho FEBC
                appears to be the only one that fits on 1566; e.g. there are no NHKs
                at all on 1566 per WRTH. I`m really quite sure that`s it, but curious
                if others have noticed the pips at odd times like transmission changes
                (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

                ** KOREA SOUTH. 1566, Jan 24 at 1342, awake just in time to check on
                the longwire, JBA carrier surely from FEBC, and at 1344
                near-imagination-level 3+1 timepips as definitely heard before when
                their antenna is switching from N Korea to China heading. Of course I
                could easily confirm this via remotes, if I were ever up and running
                computer by now. The winter window for direct reception is steadily

                        SAHs, ranging from ``slow`` to ``medium``. *684 with some music audio,
                        strongest of the lot, no doubt RNE Spain.

                        Nothing usually heard on 1476; and there is nothing much in Europe
                        since ORF Austria destroyed its 60-kW transmitter; instead likely 100
                        kW TWR BENIN in Hausa, scheduled to start just now at *0320 M-F per
                        WRTH, finding the schedule, where else? under South Africa on page
                        494. 1476 is their second Benin transmitter; the first one on 1566 is
                        also supposed to start at 0320, in English, unheard now, but reported
                        more often into North America, presumably less unfavorably directed.
                        As for tonight, I`m rather surprised to find afterwards that the K
                        index at 03 was 4, with G1 geomag storming. It`s true the northern
                        Europeans, i.e. UK frequencies were not so strong, but Iberia, NW
                        Africa still arriving (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

                        UNIDENTIFIED. 1476, Feb 3 at 0313, besides the usual lower-band JBA TA
                        carriers, there is already one on 1476, suspected TWR Benin. I was
                        hoping to hear it cut on for presumably the first morning show, Hausa
                        from 0320 but it`s already on. Nothing detectable on the English
                        frequency 1566. BTW, it`s no accident that 1476 was picked: WRTH 2005
                        showed 1476 as the main Cotonou outlet of ORTB except it was already
                        inactive (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

                            I hesitate to do this, as there are birdies all over the place, and
                            despite getting numerous 25-watt ND beacons from N America, superpower
                            LWBCs from Europe elude me. There could also be intracontinental
                            beacon traces above 200. I guess my R75 is not sensitive enough at the
                            low end and/or my mere ~100 foot longwire is too short.

                            Nevertheless I perform a scan and do find some: 162, 189, 198, 207
                            kHz. Those would correspond to: France, Iceland, UK, Iceland. But
                            there are also carriers on 218 and 224. WRTH 2021 page 526 shows these
                            are the only Eurafrican LWBCs left: 153, 162, 171, 189, 198, 207, 225,
                            234, 243, 252 kHz.

                            I'm sometimes able to hear extremely faint audio on 279 via UTwente.
                            Not sure if it's Turkmenistan or just an image. Conflicting info about
                            whether this transmitter is still active. Definitely was able to hear
                            it a few years ago after the Minsk co-channel shut down.

                            Altho Turkmenistan is hardly in `East Asia and the Pacific`, that`s
                            the LW/MW list where 279 appears in the HB, page 534. The only other
                            additional LW there are MONGOLIA on 164, 209, 227. IIRC both these and
                            279 have come under DXcussion as sporadic or defective. BTW, altho
                            larger than California in area, Turkmenistan occupies only 3.5 column
