Glenn Hauser logs September 5, 2015

** CHINA. 12910, Sept 5 at 1258, CNR1 jammer, poor with flutter
12560, Sept 5 at 1258, CNR1 jammer, very poor
13920, Sept 5 at 1259, CNR1 jammer, poor with flutter. Quick sweep of 14, 15 and 16 MHz OOBs finds no more before 1300, but hardly anything except Cuba is propagating above 15 MHz
14920, Sept 5 at 1351, CNR1 jammer, very poor with flutter
10820, Sept 5 at 1356, CNR1 jammer, poor with flutter; no OOBs in the 11s or 12s this hour
13855, Sept 5 at 1353, Chinese, poor with flutter, but this is really CRI via Kashgar, not a jammer (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KOREA NORTH [non]. 5985, Sept 5 at 1330, very poor signal with music, seemingly that of Shiokaze/Sea Breeze on its current frequency via JAPAN; too weak to determine the language, also some CCI, maybe Myanmar. Still almost a sesquihour after sunrise here, destined to improve gradually into fall and winter somewhere on the 6 MHz band (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 780, Sept 5 at 1259 UT, open carrier until KSPI Stillwater sign-on, doesn`t mention power is only 250 watts; still with some LAH from XE-land. So this daytimer signs on at 7 am local at least on Saturday; official Stillwater Sept sunrise is { } --- to be filled in once the FCC site be back in business Sept 8, as other AM/FM logs until then also may be subject to modification (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1210, Sat Sept 5 at 1218 UT, ``Better Horse Radio`` is the animalist show on KGYN Guymon, right into an ad for Ford, which one would think a conflict of interest, purveying horseless carriages (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 5950, Sept 5 at 1155, AER report on `Frecuencia al Día`, so that`s the Sat 1130 show on this hi-angle-toward-Cuba WRMI/AWR frequency, still missing from their program schedules. Only poor here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 720, Sept 5 at 1200 UT, KDWN Las Vegas [NV] ID, ``a Beasley Group radio station``, into ABC news. Slow SAH from some Spanish music. Whenever I hear KDWN during local nighttime I suspect may be on ND day pattern, since at night it`s a deep cardioid null toward WGN; but that path traverses UT, CO, NE and IA, so further to the south, a little of the 50 kW could be leaking into OK. Today`s Enid sunrise: 1206 UT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 840, Sept 5 at 1202 UT, after definitely hearing 720 KDWN, I look for the other Las Vegas NV 50 kW, to find CBS News in progress, looping E/W, and indeed // KRLD 1080 but several seconds out of synch. 840 cuts away at 1203 UT for paid program `Health Line`. KXNT is a CBS-owned station, but the shame of dumping out of its own network news is obscured on the program sked
which doesn`t even show news on the hour at all! But Sat 5-6 am [PDT = 12-13 UT], a generic ``Vitamin Show``.
Revealing how secondary CBS considers AM, the sked page is headed ``KXNT Programming (Including Rush Limbaugh) is Now on 840 AM --- NewsRadio 100.5 KXNT Program Schedule`` --- ``now``, as if it weren`t before? (It also beats me how CBS can be denigrated as ``lame-stream`` or ``liberal`` when so many of its own radio stations broadcast the ilk of Rush. And makes one wonder how CBS TV News can be trusted.)
Getting 50/25 kW KXNT 840, *North* Las Vegas here a sesquimegameter away is even more remarkable than KDWN 720: NRC Pattern Book shows both day and night there is a major lobe to the SSW, and a lesser lobe to the north, with itty bitty lobes to the east and west. Would you believe ND? I have heard it some times before. In the analog era, it used to be easier to get LVNV TV stations here on ch 2, 3, 5, than radio (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 860, Sept 5 at 1204 UT, CBS News mixing with `El Condor Pasa` from some Mexican if not Peruvian, the former being groundwave KKOW Pittsburg KS. By 1221 UT, KKOW is in dead air. Who wants to go to work at a radio station early on a weekend? Let the automation undo it! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 940, Sept 5 at 1223 UT, ad for a feed store in Monett, and something in Aurora. So it`s KSWM, 1000/25 watts in Aurora MO, which are between Joplin and Springfield in SW MO (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 990, Sept 5 at 1224 UT, ``KRMO weather on AM 990``, 1225 UT into C&W, fair, no CCI. CoL is Cassville, which is S of Monett toward AR, but address in Monett, like KSWM 940. KRMO is 2500/47 watts U1 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1060, Sept 5 at 1227 UT, nostalgic music, ENE/WSW, 1229 UT fade for YL DJ; 1230 UT OM news about Springfield and Missouri; 1231 UT, ``Ozarx News Network``, automated TC for ``7:30 at KBFL``, back to YL DJ with weather. Is 470/19 watts U1 in Springfield MO (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1110, Sept 5 at 1212 UT, Qur`an musical recitations interspersed with verses translated into spoken English --- something you never hear on SW; why not sing the English too? What little I hear smax of KJV archaic verbiage. Must be matins, stopping at 1215 UT just as it`s fading, having produced a slow SAH with KFAB NE. This is, of course, 50 kW daytimer KVTT Mineral Wells = The Metroplex TX, ``Bringing the Community Together`` per NRC AM Log 2015-2016; a.k.a. ``The Moslems Are Coming!`` or rather, ``They`re already here among us!!`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1130, Sept 5 at 1216 UT, open carrier/dead air, obviously KLEY Wellington KS, 250/1 watt, still so at 1232 UT making fast SAH with ``The Tiger`` KWKH Shreveport also audible and mostly mutually nullable (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1160, Sept 5 at 1234 UT, Mexican music, very poor looping N/S, and a fast SAH with algo, KSL? KFAQ 1170 Tulsa IBOC is not so bad, and at least at a right angle. Must be KRDY San Antonio, Spanish religious as a Radio Luz, 10/1 kW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1280, Sept 5 at 1236 UT, ``103-3 The Mix`` non-ID, Elton John song, ``Rocket Man``; 1241 UT KSOK news promo, ``KSOK on the way``, ``Cowley County`s station for classic hits, 103-3 The Mix``; 1242 UT, ``Hey, Jude``.
Apparently something new, as KSOK-FM is listed on 95.9 (and I recently reported it). WTFDA FM Database shows the 103.3 in Arkansas City KS is merely a 250-watt translator, K277CK, repeating KARF, wherever that is, and no further details. (Looking up KARF separately, it`s 91.5 in Independence KS, a 100-kW vertical-only Bott network gospel huxter.) Now KSOK-AM has acquired that translator to become a ``real`` FM station, while the really real KSOK-FM, in nearby Winfield, if it still exist on 95.9, must be separately programmed. Website includes:
``You can now listen to the Home of the Good Guys - Click on the links below to hear our LIVE STREAMS!
KSOK FM 95.9 - Home of the Good Guys
Mixx 103.3 - Cowley's Hometown Classic Hits``
But separately brands 1280 AM as ``Country Classics``
This could be even further confusing, as WTFDA also lists a full-power Kansan on 103.3 with almost the same name! ``KJLS 103.3 HAYS KS 100.0 303.0 39.0115 99.2812 28F4 MIX103FM Top 40 MIX 103 HOT AC``. Hays is in central KS, nowhere near Ark City. But for this log I was listening only to 1280 which is certainly KSOK Ark City. Cowley is not only the name of the county, but of the broadcast company. BTW, this Arkansas is fully pronounced ``Ar-Kansas``, not like that other state over there, ``Ar-kan-saw`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1370, Sept 5 at 1244 UT, weak signal from algo, not from the NW, as 5 kW KGNO Dodge City KS continues to be unheard on numerous occasional chex, day and night and in-between, via caradio or homeradios. Must be silent, but still in the new NRC AM Log as if extant. It should be on the FCC Silent list by now (takes only 2 months to qualify, IIRC), but I bet it isn`t, once we get a chance to check it again (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1430, Sept 5 at 1246 UT, ``The Gateway City`s one and only Golden Oldies radio station``, sung: ``KZQZ``. I.e. 50/5 kW in Saint Louis MO. 2015 NRC AM Log shows slogan as ``Cool Oldies`` which maybe also still applies (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 774, Sept 5 at 1156 UT, a few minutes before sunrise here, JBA carrier, presumably NHK, first trace of it since spring. Nothing on the other 500 kW loband frequencies. But no sign of NK on 2850 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
