** CUBA. 6100, Sept 18 at 0607, RHC English reactivated here after missing several nights, good S9+20, but now 6060 is missing. Still // 6000 undermodulated; 6145 S9+30 but undermod; and 5040 off as it normally is by 0600.

** INDONESIA. 3325, Sept 18 at 1228 immediately upon tune-in, “Radio Republik Indonesia“ ID in passing, at S2-S4, with Bougainville no doubt already off — the last living Indonesian SW station as 9525-, VOI is still absent (but maybe not forever) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 560, Sept 18 at 1200 mentions Monterrey, Nuevo León, but then spoken and sung “La Tremenda“, which is XESRD, Santiago Papasquiaro, Durango, 10/1 kW (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This is XENT, 10000/750 watts, La Paz BCS.

** NEW ZEALAND. 6679-USB, Sept 18 at 1251, VOLMET in monotone DU accent, can`t catch locations until 1253 “Terminal forecast, Auckland“; S5. Per EiBi it is indeed Auckland, starting at :20 and :50 past the hours, time-shared with Tokyo, Hong Kong, Honolulu (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. RF 42, Sept 18 at 1448 UT, barely enough morning tropo to visiblize sporadically KBZC-LD OKC. Keeps changing its lineup of subchannels. Now 42-2 is Tuff TV, with “creating conservative political talk show“, `Live from Studio 6B`, set up like a radio studio. Program website and Tuff TV +program sked websites won`t finish loading. Finally! A conservative talkshow!
42-1 has a sillyballgame which Rabbitears.info now labels as Stadium; 42-3 still Buzzr; 42-4 GetTV; 42-5 QVC; 42-6 QVC-2; and I didn`t get up to 42-7 to reconfirm Shop LC. NTSC KOCY-LP OKC also barely visible snowy on ch 48 (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Many thanks to Ray Robinson of KVOH in Los Angeles for guest-hosting Wavescan this week! Jeff White has been busy with the hurricane reparations at WRMI. There will be a report on WRMI’s hurricane experiences on this week’s Wavescan, which begins airing today, September 17th.
2125 UTC Sunday September 17, 2017 – The frequency of 5950 kHz is now back on the air! This broadcasts Family Radio, Adventist World Radio and several other programs on a beam to Cuba and the Caribbean. We are using Transmitter 3 instead of Transmitter 14, since Transmitter 14’s transmission lines are still not repaired.
Para nuestros oyentes en Cuba y el Caribe, ya está en el aire la frecuencia de 5950 kHz!
WRMI Radio Miami International
1615 UTC Sunday September 17 – It’s been almost a week since Hurricane Irma arrived here at Okeechobee. We now have 10 of our 14 transmitters on the air again with their normal power:
Transmitter 1 at 7780 kHz
Transmitter 2 at 5985 kHz
Transmitter 4 at 9955 kHz
Transmitter 5 at 9455 kHz
Transmitter 6 at 9395 kHz
Transmitter 7 at 21525 kHz
Transmitter 9 at 11580 kHz
Transmitter 10 at 11530 kHz
Transmitter 11 at 7570 kHz
Transmitter 12 at 5850 kHz
We will continue working to put the others on the air during the next few days. We cannot put Transmitter 3 on 15770 kHz again on the same antenna because the hurricane destroyed the 44-degree European antenna that this transmitter was using. But we may use Transmitter 3 with another antenna in the near future.
It seems that our Internet service has finally come back, so we are hoping that Monday we can have our audio livestream working normally again, and that our customers can again send us their programs via Internet.
Thanks to our Facility Manager Pat Travers and his team for their hard work over the last week repairing all of the transmission lines in the antenna field, we have been able to return to the air on so many transmitters so fast.
And thanks to our listeners for their patience waiting for us. The hurricane has been a bad experience, but we have overcome it and we are in the air again to serve you

1615 UTC Domingo Septiembre 17 – Ha sido casi una semana desde que llegó el Huracán Irma aquí a Okeechobee. Ahora tenemos 10 de nuestros 14 transmisores en el aire de nuevo con su potencia normal:
Transmisor 1 en 7780 kHz
Transmisor 2 en 5985 kHz
Transmisor 4 en 9955 kHz
Transmisor 5 en 9455 kHz
Transmisor 6 en 9395 kHz
Transmisor 7 en 21525 kHz
Transmisor 9 en 11580 kHz
Transmisor 10 en 11530 kHz
Transmisor 11 en 7570 kHz
Transmisor 12 en 5850 kHz
Seguiremos trabajando para poner los otros en el aire durante los próximos días. No podemos reponer Transmisor 3 en 15770 kHz en la misma antena porque el huracán destruyó la antena de 44 grados hacia Europa que este transmisor estaba usando. Pero quizás usaremos Transmisor 3 con otra antena en el futuro cercano.
Parece que nuestro servicio de Internet ha regresado por fin, así estamos esperando que mañana lunes podemos tener nuestro stream de audio en vivo funcionando normalmente de nuevo, y que nuestros clientes puedan mandarnos sus programas por Internet de nuevo.
Gracias a nuestro Gerente de Facilidad Pat Travers y su equipo por su trabajo duro durante la semana pasada reparando todas las líneas de transmisión en el campo de antenas, hemos podido regresar al aire en tantos transmisores tan rápido.
Y gracias a nuestros oyentes por su paciencia esperándonos. El huracán ha sido una experiencia mala, pero la hemos superado y ya estamos en el aire de nuevo para servirles.“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search, 1154 UT September 18: only 702, with two carriers beating from WSW: presumably 50 kW 2BL ABC Sydney, and 10 kW Magic, Auckland NZ, as other monitors have been getting into deep North America (tho there is another 1 kW NZer). Skipped midband, but nothing detected on hiband either (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
