Chaski, until autocutoff at 0058:48*, which is 13 seconds later than last check Sept 18 until 0058:35* (and date on that log was incorrect: not Sept 17 but Sept 18), i.e. typical average slippage of 6.5 seconds later per (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SRI LANKA. 11905, Sept 20 at 0115, JBA S-0.5 carrier from SLBC, but enough to detect the mis-timesignal ending at 0115:17 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 13695, Monday Sept 19 at 2100, WRMI with `La Rosa de Tokio`, historical media program from Argentina, this week all about the song `Lili Marleen`, how it was a favorite of the Nazis until they lost the battle of Stalingrad, and then became beloved of all sides in the War. Played several versions of it in German, Italian, French, English, Dutch? Nice how such a specialized topic can be stretched to fill almost an hour (until 2153, then music fill). Excellent reception as usual on this bigsig aimed right at us, suitable for max musical bandwidth on the R-75 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9275, Monday September 19 at 1902 check, WMLK is still on, having reactivated on Sept 16; hearing on both the G8 and the BST-1, fair signal with DEJOM pontificating about Topic Y. Still there at 2047 recheck, but off sometime around 2100 on R75 check (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1060, Sept 20 at 0131 UT, praise music in Spanish with slight edge over the CCI; 0134 ID as “KIJN, desde Farwell, Tejas — testimonios, adoración“, website and postal address, “y mil bendiciones“. Call letters pronounced in Spanish. Not exactly a gringo accent, but not true Mexican accent either. So confirmed reactivated after almost two years. Is 10 kW daytimer, slightly skewed directional circular pattern favoring the WNW, but plenty this way too. Guess what? Official FCC sunset for KIJN in September was 0100 UT (October: 0015 UT). Back to their old trix; will carrier and/or modulation stay on all night? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1170, Sept 20 at 0128 UT, KFAQ Tulsa once again has gospel huxter undercurrent, so WWVA OH is back to out-of-whack pattern not protecting us from it, altho had not been audible last few nights. At 0130 UT both of them go to news headline break (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1520, Sept 20 at 0123 UT, “Sports-radio 1520 The Ticket“ ID audible under KOKC OKC just as I tune in; the usual cheatin` KOLM Rochester MN, 10000/800 watts really messing up KOKC, which has degraded itself from 50000/50000 watts U2 as listed in the NRC AM Log 2016, to perpetual(?) STA of 10000/10000 U1 — are they ever going to repair their antennas? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
