** U S A. WEWN still missing from all frequencies for the second day in a row, July 23; at 0635 nothing on 7555, 11520 or 11870; at 1316, nothing on 11530, 11550 or 12050; at 1630 nothing on 11520, 11550 or 15610 as on the schedule http://www.ewtn.com/radio/freq.htm
Last year they were off for two weeks of maintenance, as of July 28; see DXLD 8-086, altho I believe it turned out to be not quite that long. I asked Glen Tapley and he replies July 23, 2009:
“Glenn, We are having downtime until Friday afternoon. We are repairing some slew boxes and transmitters along with our regular maintenance. We project to be back on air this weekend if all goes well. Glen“
So now`s the time to try to DX something else on or near WEWN frequencies, especially the ones flanked by those noisy plus/minus 10 kHz spurs, unless the maintenance takes care of them. For example, V. of Mesopotamia at 12-15 on 11530 (which also collides with WYFR at 04-09) (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST) ###
