Glenn Hauser logs April 19, 2016

** ALASKA [non]. 9665.0, April 19 at 0107, ``Your New Life Station`` ID as I tune-in, atop the ZY station, 100% readable but still with that low rumble het Voz MissionÃria causes, slightly off-frequency below circa 9664.97. Madagascar World Voice is providing KNLS much better now than Anchor Point does. Then ``From the Top of the World, Postcard from Alaska``, interview with an Anchorage hunting guide/fishing boat captain about his encounter with a bear. This time, Anchorage is not mis-identified as the state capital. As always, lasts only a few minutes; having hooked(?) listeners with a somewhat interesting secular story, 0111 down to business with next item, ``True Stories from the Bible``; therefore, I tune out as there is no evidence any story from the Bible is ``true``. So WCB is just recycling programming originally on their other station KNLS. Too bad they don`t put MWV on a completely clear frequency of which there are plenty on the 31 mb, such as adjacent 9660 or 9670 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ALBANIA. 9855, April 19 at 0130, JBA carrier from presumed R. Tirana, Shijak; while 9570 with CRI English relay via CÃrrik attains S9+5 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CANADA. 2748.97-USB, April 19 at 0142, MCTS Halifax, via Chebogue (Yarmouth) NS site, artificial YL with marine weather in English as scheduled to start at 0140, best resolution by tuning slightly to lo side. Still hard to copy everything vs storm noise level, but hear keywords such as Maritimes, Atlantic Daylight Time, wave height forecast. MCTS = Marine Communications and Traffic Services Centre. All the stuff:

** GREECE. 9934.97 approx., April 19 at 0128, ERA music and whine, while 9420 is good and clear at S9+25 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NORTH AMERICA. 6939.72-AM, April 19 at 0113, one pirate is active, here, at S9, storm noise bursts peaking to S9+15, with a crooner song accompanied by big band; 0115, `This is Radio Casablanca; send your reception reports to Radio Casablanca one at gmail.com``. Then a movie soundtrack clip, presumably nothing but `Casablanca`, and 0116 into ``Night & Day`` song, maybe Lena Horne? 0119 instrumental-only portion. 0122, ``Cheek to Cheek``, maybe Astaire? 0125 I think it`s a medley going into ``Paper Moon``; 0127 same ID as earlier; 0131 movie clip, into another song, a bit weaker now; 0137.5 ID again; 0147 or 0148 it seems to have stopped, altho I did not copy a sign-off. Started listening to this on the NRD-545, then was able to enjoy it well enough on the PL-880 with reel-out clip-on, while I continued bandscanning on the other receiver with the other ear. Far enough from the 6947.4 open carrier not to be a problem.
Many other logs of R. Casablanca here as ``6940``, from 0021 to 0148, with extensive playlists, not all agreeing on titles and performers:

Mostly from eastern USA, except Omaha and Denver.
A QSL from it is already in my Gallery from 3.7 years ago, when it was reported on exactly the same frequency: ``63. RADIO CASABLANCA, North America: 6939.7-AM, pirate, 2238-2345 16 December 2012 [71k]``

** OKLAHOMA. 1260, April 19 at 0153 UT, ``12-60 KWSH, The Station You Grew Up With``, C&W music. My closest 1260, 1/1 kW U2, but rarely heard this well, too far for much ND groundwave, and night pattern has a notch toward us, butterfly with lobes to the WSW and SSE. WSH = Wewoka-Seminole-Holdenville, CoL Wewoka, address in Shawnee. Slogan in NRC AM Log is instead ``Tri-Cities Best Radio`` (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU. 5980, April 19 at 0103 & 0106 chex, no signal detectable from R. Chaski, so just off the air? Would not normally have reset timer even earlier by now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9370, April 19 at 0111, WWRBS is still here, not 3185; and their only other WWRB transmitter which started 5050 at 2255 April 18, is now playing an hymn; next check at 0143, 5050 is off and BS has switched to 3185 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 9975, April 19 at 0127, KVOH is AWOL for a second night; what`s wrong? Did not get to check day frequency 17775, which is probably the other transmitter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1470, April 19 at 0147 UT, ``AM 1470 The Twister``, Plainview ads, program promo for KDHN Radio, briefly atop the frequency. So it is KDHN, Dimmitt TX, 500/149 watts U3. NRC AM Log has name as ``Voice of the Great High Plains`` so ``The Twister`` seems new, altho maybe VOGHP still applies too, or did they consider it too cumbersome. Are they daring a tornado to strike, Plainview, or Dimmitt. Plainview is 40 miles SE of Community of License Dimmitt on State Hwy 194, so I rather doubt it can cover that far at night. Maybe there`s an FM translator now? Radio-Locator has yet another name, ``The Little Country Giant``. Day and night patterns are shown with a bit of a notch close to Enidward. I also logged this recently fuzzily with an indefinite call-letter ID.
For the Twister identity we have to go to
https://www.facebook.com/KDHN1470twister/
showing that as early as August 25, 2015. And which leads us to a ``full-feature website`` R-L doesn`t know about:
http://www.kdhnradio.com/
Indicating it`s really into agriplex news now and silly ballgames; still any C&W? (Glenn Hauser, OK DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 11640, April 19 at 0137, that mystery open carrier is still here but only S4-S5. Earlier I thought it might be CRI/Mali, but I doubt it now. Of course, it could be a ute (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
