Glenn Hauser logs September 4-5, 2015

** GREECE. 9420 & whiny 9935, Sept 5 at 0125, VOGs are on again tonite, but rather poor signals (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 900, Sept 5 at 0149, checking whether 890 Spanish song is // here, which would mean R. Progresos, Cubans, but it`s not [see USA}; instead, ``Manténgase informado en 900-AM Noticias``, loops N/S, then song in English. So it`s XEOK, Monterrey NL, 10/2.5 kW, which has no problem blocking ``250/250`` kW XEW, DF, close to the same direxion from here, with 100X the power at only sesqui the distance; yeah, right (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 910, Sept 5 at 0147 UT, song and YL ID ``You`re listening to KVIS, The King`s Vision, 9-10 AM``, and another hymn. So that`s what the call letters stand for: I had not paid much attention to this gospel huxter, but this was relatively painless right after tune-in; and the slogan is no news to the NRC AM Log this year nor last year, and probably long before then; 1/1 kW U3. I can remember when it was KGLC, no idea derivation for that; now CoL remains Miamuh, but address in Grove OK (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1120, circa 1800 UT Sept 4 on BFO-less caradio, seems KETU/KEOR Catoosa/Sperry/Tulsa carrier is on but dead air. Next check at 0144 UT Sept 5, yes, OC only, making usual ~6 Hz beat with KMOX airing what else, Cards BB. Need I remind them/you that KETU/KEOR is supposed to be a daytimer (and supposed to modulate)? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1270, UT Sat Sept 5 at 0141 UT, dominant signal from E/W with HS silly football game entirely in English, Seminole vs Harrah, so obviously Oklahoma, therefore KTUZ Claremore/Tulsa, which is normally Spanish! It`s halftime with ID as ``The Franchise, Game of the Week, powered by Homeland`` [a grocery market which closed in Enid several years ago, and lately all its Tulsa stores, and most of its OKC ones --- was it because of doubling all those $ 1 coupons??].
The Franchise is the monicker of 107.7 KRXO OKC, another Tyler Media station, and sure `nuff, same programming there but 15 seconds delayed after 1270 in a further market. KTUZ is 5/1 kW U4, so also audible at night, but not this well, so presumably has illegally stayed on day power and pattern for HSFB. This should make Kevin Redding of ABDX happy, where a CME for HSFB is currently underway. I bandscan the entire MW and note a few other unusually strong night signals with local HSFB, but nothing new; see USA 790 and 690 logs anyway. I can almost null KTUZ on the DX-398 to get something on 1270 in C&W from N/S (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** PERU. 5980, Sept 5 at 0104, for at least the third night, no signal from R. Chaski. I shall be interested to see if anyone such as Claudio Galaz heard it an hour or two earlier on these dates, tho most monitors don`t go out of their way to report missing stations (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1789 monitoring: confirmed Friday Sept 4 after 2130.5 on WRMI 7570, and this time stronger on 15770 from 2130. Hope there were no interruptions on 15770 as Wolfgang Büschel had been hearing in the 20 UT hour during BS.
WOR also confirmed at 2330 Fri Sept 4 on WRMI 5850, good (and checking much weaker 5950 here, noted `Frecuencia al Día` was airing on it at 2330 Fri: still no details on web grid about what occupies 2330-2400 every day following new AWR Spanish to Cuba; only heard Wavescan another day).

** U S A. 5110.05, Sept 5 at 0108, WBCQ is on the AM transmitter tonight and // synchronized with much stronger 7489.95-AM while 9330.1v-CUSB is off, as I listen to another live `Allan Weiner Worldwide`; in phone conversation about how noise level on AM is so bad, that his 780 can`t be heard, driving around in nearby Houlton ME.
Next call is from Mark Sills in Dallas, who laments that Art Bell is no longer on 9330 which had such a better signal than 7490. Now Allan is apparently saying that Art Bell has been dropped from 7490 as well, since there has been no sponsorship, which is needed at least to cover the electric bill for 15 hours a week on two transmitters or one. Says he would rather put AB on all frequencies if they could just be sponsored. Yes, 7490 confirmed off at 0409 check Sept 5: that leaves 5085 WTWW --- if they can keep affording it; and 6070 CFRX for `Midnight [sic] in the Desert`, UT Tue-Sat 0400-0700..
Mark then asks for WORLD OF RADIO to be aired on 9330 some evening, which has a much better signal for him in Dallas than 7490 in the afternoon. Currently the only 9330 program is Terry Blalock M-F at 8-9 pm ET; but Allan agrees to put WOR on at 9-9:30 pm, how about Wednesdays? ``GH tells the truth; I would never not air him, because we`re all about free speech. Everybody pays for airtime except for my show and Glenn`s show`` (and later: some shows like Jean Shepherd which are now public domain). I`ve long wanted to be on 9330, but then e-mailed Allan asking for Thursday 9 pm ET [UT Friday 0100] instead since by then there will be a fresh new edition rather than a week-old show. TBA.
Someone then asked him about the WBCQ wind turbines: #2 broke down, which partially powers the #1 transmitter building and no budget to repair it this year, but hopes to next summer. #1 turbine was hit by lightning two years ago. Later mentioned that in the winters, Allan lives in Deland, Florida (so that`s why he refers to ``de Land of Fla``) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 690, Sept 5 at 0155 UT, HSFB, Pittsburg vs. ??, lo-fi audio really breaking up, cell phone? Then recovers but still lo-fi. Obviously KGGF Coffeyville KS, 10/5 kW U4. Not sure if this is cheating for Friday night football, as normally heard anyway (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 790, Sept 5 at 0152 UT, HSFB from E/W, the Mounties (from where?) vs the Siloam Springs Panthers, fourth quarter coming up; so it`s KURM, Rogers AR, 5/0.5 kW U2. Not especially strong, and may not be cheating: night pattern already aims west protecting Memphis (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 890, Sept 5 at 0148 UT, norteña music with WLS nulled --- or rather, I have to null this to barely hear WLS (tho 780, 720 and 670 are unimpeded). Not what you would expect from the 200 kW R. Progreso, Cuba; and indeed not // Spanish on 900 (see MEXICO), while looping N/S, so this 890 is KVOZ, Del Mar Hills TX, 10/1 kW U2. I further confirm this by comparing to 1210, where sibling station // KUBR San Juan TX can barely be made out as // music, presumably gospel, with 1210 KGYN Guymon OK nulled as much as possible, as it`s still aiming for Philadelphia (well, really, 10 kW ND day and night). Furthermore, 890 Spanish mentions ``Laredo`` at 0151 UT, which is really the metro for Del Mar Hills. Both of them are to be addressed in McAllen (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
