** BANGLADESH. 15505, April 27 at 1358, IS from BB, once again, just barely audible but enough to make out the 5+1 timesignal ending early at 1359:37.5 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BRAZIL. 11780, April 27 at 0520, open carrier/dead air from RNB; by 0522 I`m trying // 6180 and by then, both are resuming with music, ID, as if there was simply no audio from the studio until then. Huge transmitters deserve more professional handling (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. CNR1 jamming morning of April 27:
12370, April 27 at 1218, CNR1 jammer, good with hyper drama in Chinese
13480, April 27 at 1222, CNR1 jammer, very poor // 12370
13795, April 27 at 1221, CNR1 jammer, very poor
13830, April 27 at 1220, CNR1 jammer, poor
15115, April 27 at 1223, CNR1 jammer, very poor
15195, April 27 at 1223, CNR1 jammer, fair
15250, April 27 at 1223, CNR1 jammer, fair
16750, April 27 at 1342, CNR1 jammer, poor-fair, // 11785; not // 15115, which means the jamming target is stronger there now. No others this hour from 12 to 18 MHz (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1640, Sunday April 27 at 1228 UT, KZLS again with `Cowboy Corner`, and same topic but not synchronized, on rival 960 KWGA, both Enid. But at 1230 UT, KZLS breaks in for a couple minutes of “news“ from Blaze Radio, then cuts back to C.C. still in progress, how ragged, while KGWA stays with it.
Here`s the affiliate list for “Red Steagall`s Cowboy Corner“:
where OK is second only to TX (by far) in number of affiliates. Red doesn`t know that his OKC affiliate, KNAH 99.7 means he`s also on its sibling station KZLS 1640; meanwhile the Enid ones listed are not only KGWA 960 (also for “northern OKC“, ha2) but its own sibling, KOFM 103.1 in Enid (which is blocked in OKC by the KOKC translator). Both are too lazy to program separately on sleepy Sunday morning ghettos/ghettoes [depending on your spell-checker].
KBXD 1480 Dallas is also on there correctly for 24 hours earlier on Saturday mornings, as heard yesterday.
Red often mentions the Cowboy museum in OKC as one of his sponsors, and is about to make an appearance there. BTW, this C.C. has nothing to do with some business near Sixth & Duck in Stillwater OK, despite what Google may “think“: its web prefaces with “the“; nor one in northern Arizona, -az (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1718 monitoring: The 0401 UT Sunday April 27 airing on WTWW-1, 5830: bigsig dumped off the air for a sesquiminute just as I was saying “This is —“. Why does this keep happening? Off again at 0409 for another sesquiminute. And *again* at 0418-0421; back for a few seconds, and off **again** later in 0421. *0422+ on again to conclusion; Webcast still funxions via:
Next: UT Monday 0300 on Area 51 via WBCQ 5110v-CUSB; Tuesday 1100 & Wednesday 1315 on WRMI, 9955 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 11880, April 27 at 1216 VG signal opening preacher in English, Pastor David Robinson. Can it be a new frequency for WRMI? Not // 9955. WRMI did use 11880 briefly on Sundays in Dec-Jan for PCJ Radio. No, 1229 outro for Victory Baptist Church and World Harvest Radio ID, into gospel music, but another gospel huxter after 1245.
HFCC, as of April 24 shows no WRMI on 11880, but this:
11880 1200 1300 2,3 HRI 250 315 0 146 1234567 300314 261014 D 8500 Spa USA NHK FCC 16113
NHK??? Spanish??? to western Canada??? Obviously not!!! This may be on Sundays only; certainly not noticed before now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1660, April 27 at 1227 UT, outro for a feature from the “K-State Radio Network“, which means it must be KWOD Kansas City. I`ve yet to catch the new legal ID for the former KUDL, which has been in effect since April 7; presumably still biz/Bloomberg format as an alternate program from “KMBZ“ . FCC AM Query callsign history:
KXTR 02/12/2007 [the KXTR eras were classical, ex-FM, both lamented] WDAF 01/19/2007 [?! For less than a month parked here] KXTR 06/06/2001
As for the K-State Radio Network, that`s the remnant of 580 KKSU and before that KSAC, Manhattan, which sold out the frequency to WIBW, but remains a presumably free public service program source picked up by many Kansas commercial stations. Seehttp://www.ksre.ksu.edu/
“History — The K-State Radio Network is a service which originated with public radio station KKSU-AM, which left the air November 27, 2002, after nearly 78 years of broadcasting. Links
Listen to the live stream (M-F, 10a-11a CT) Flash
From Affiliates, http://www.ksre.ksu.edu/News/p.aspx?tabid=61
there`s a grid showing stations carrying three of the programs and “features“ in general, but precious few actual times, and WTFK??
KUDL is still on the list (not KWOD) for `Sound Living`, Sundays at 6:30-7:30 am CDT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
