** ARGENTINA. 11710.65, Aug 5 at 0144, RAE poor with Japanese intonation, lite crackling centered circa 11714 from RNA 11780 spur (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BRAZIL. 11814, August 3 at 0516, the spurcrap out of 11780 RNA/RNB has developed a new sound, in addition to the ``crackle``: now there is also more readable modulation/squealing at peaks; atop 11815 RBC, and same appearing circa 11746, 11712, and barely 11678, i.e. ~34 kHz intervals.
11813, August 4 at 0142, same enhanced spursound allows closer estimation of center frequency, way over 11825 RBC carrier; also circa 11747, and litely circa 11714 vs ARGENTINA, q.v., ~33 kHz intervals (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 17730, August 4 at 2011 check, no signal from RHC in Portuguese, which is currently scheduled 1930-2300, but no English. When on, one of the few big signals on 16m (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** EGYPT. 12070, August 5 at 0140, R. Cairo, Spanish is S9, but totally dead air.
11935, August 5 at 0140, R. Cairo is S9+25 here, suptorted to JBM presumed Spanish
9315, August 5 at 0140, R. Cairo, S9+20 Spanish, but open carrier/dead air (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** GREECE. 9935, August 5 at 0139, VOG with usual big whinebuzz atop the music it`s trying to modulate, successfully on 9420 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1210, August 3 at 0606 UT, KGYN Guymon is inbooming, VG with weather and ID, country music. Must not be on night pattern, supposed to null toward Cleveland; also noticed this the night before.
Make that null toward Philadelphia! (However, KGYN was originally a daytimer on 1220 until it made the Big Time in the clear-channel breakup.) Same VG signal with C&W music almost 24 hours later, August 4 at 0531 check (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1680, went out listening for the Talking House in NE Enid afternoon of August 4, but no signal where I was hearing it a few days ago. Realtor never replied to my webform inquiry about its address, which may have served instead to remind him to turn it off; as previously these things were forgotten, left running after property was no longer on the market (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. RF 29, August 4 at 0050 UT, KTUZ is OFF, so no Telemundo on virtual 30, no Estrella on virtual 48, and no Univisión on virtual 36; but they are all back by 0104. In case anyone was fooled that these are not really out of a single Tyler Media transmitter licensed to Shawnee (hardly Hispanic), this joint outage might have unfooled them.
BTW, 48-1 PSIP ID is KUOK-CD, but on-screen IDs are quite different as KOCY 48.1 Oklahoma City. Estrella specializes in busty girls jumping around and rather graphic virility-enhancement ads, more so than you see on Anglo TV (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SRI LANKA. 11905, August 3 at 0115 [not 0116 typo in original report], SLBC prélude is underway at poor S3-4 level with flutter, and 2+1 mistimesignal ending at 0115:17 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5830 & 9475, August 4 at 1251, no signal on either WTWW-1 frequency; yet propagation from TN is VG for neighbors on 9980, 9370.
BTW, Mark Sills heard Ted Randall attacking me on the air after coming back from another outage which I missed. Hey Ted, I`m merely the messenger. You screw up, on a Worldwide broadcast, can`t expect it to go unnoticed. At least you`re no Voice of Greece or Radio Cairo, which also get noticed. Anomalies are newsworthy, ordinary operations not so much (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1190, August 4 at 0540 UT, rather rude political screed about a candidate nicknamed ``blow-job``, loops ENE/WSW, but it`s local mentioning Cahokia, i.e. IL side of St Louis. VG signal at first, so suspect day facility of KQQZ, COL DeSoto MO, but address in Belleville IL (and CP to be Fairview Heights IL) --- of course it must be, 10 kW day, direxional toward southwest, 22 watts night! In the ``hot talk`` aspect of its Jekyll/Hyde personality (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
