** ALASKA. 9685, June 3 at 1037, Chinese talk about the Bible: KNLS scheduled 1000-1200 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** BRAZIL. 4925, June 3 at 1018, M&W talk eventually recognized as Brazilian intonation on a frequency normally unheard in the evenings. EiBi shows Rádio Educação Rural, Tefé, but not until *1103.
Logs this hour are during a surprise power failure I first noted awakening at 1002; no telling how long it had been off. The entire neighborhood was dark before dawn`s earliest light. There were no storms around here to explain it. Notified OG&E ASAP and it came back on at 1056.
Meanwhile caused computer and other problems. The breakfast table DX-392 will no longer turn on, nor my main computer. Using the DX-398 on batteries with indoor reel-out antenna. No QRM from local devices, but still some “line noise“ detectable from somewhere, especially on lower bands (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. 9180, June 3 at 1041, CNR1 jammer // 6125 on a Sound of Hope frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA. 5975, June 3 at 1028, Korean here without jamming. Because it is CNR-8 scheduled 0600-1500 per EiBi. Is that for Korean minorities in China, and/or North and/or South? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST
** CUBA. 11760, June 3 at 2059, RHC opening the tarde transmission with frequency list, in typical Soviet-style disorder: 15370, 13740, 11760, 11850, 9535, 9640, 5040 plus the 4 FMs. All are then audible except 13740, which has been imaginary this season; only in the mornings as in EiBi; but Aoki/NDXC does not show it even then. 11850 dead air until JIP a minute later. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KOREA NORTH. 5995, 6003, 6015, June 3 at 1029 heavy noise jamming: against Echo of Hope, nothing, and KBS respectively per Aoki; EiBi does not show it on 6003 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** KUWAIT. 17550.0, June 3 at 2052, R. Kuwait, Arabic talk S0-S2, bold C&W NAm service, not the OSOB now since 17815 WHRI is on as the SSOB, with a sporadic E boost (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MEXICO. 1230, June 3 at 1059, as I am hoping to ID something domestic just before our sunrise 1115 UT [almost to earliest 1113 in a week], instead I definitely hear in the graveyard jumble the choral strains of the Mexican NA, looping roughly south. IRCA Mexican log lists only 6 on 1230, uncertain status for some (vs 13 on 1240 which don`t have to protect clear channel 1220). The closest and most likely, especially if on 10 kW day power, is XEIZ, Radio Fórmula, Monterrey NL, also in the UT-5 zone where a NA would be expected at 6 am CDT (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** NIGERIA. 7255-, June 3 at 0611, VON is gone again (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SINGAPORE. 9900, June 3 at 1035, discussion of sexual harrassment of women in the UK. BBCWS at 1000-1200 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5800, June 3 at 1025, Oldies and soon WRMI ID on unlisted frequency we have heard them testing(?) before, but what are the details? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 21525, June 3 at 2054, WRMI Radio Africa is in strangely-accented evangelical French, S8 but deep fades to S1, best heard in a long time thanks to sporadic E opening also into the FM band (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. It seems that the sporadic E DX season has been slow to start this year, with only one FM log in May, but as I am napping to Dvorak`s New World Symphony from 90.1 KUCO-FM, on the PL-880 some occasional interruptions at 2105 UT June 3, by NPR ATC — could have been KHCC in KS, but more like sporadic E volatility.
Since I am then getting only FL and GA, 90.1 could be WJUF Inverness FL. But more likely:
WXVS, WAYCROSS GA, 79.0/77.6 kW, 280.0m, 31-13-17, 82-34-24, GEORGIA PUBLIC RADIO. Further chex don`t get any ID on this, but I start tuning around for more DX.
90.7, June 3 at 2105 UT, NPR ATC //90.1. This is one of few `open` frequencies here besides plenty of ACI above and below. Surely WMFE-FM Orlando. 100 kW at 223m.
90.7 soon overtaken by smooth jazz. Jazz is the format of another closer FL, WKGC-FM Panama City, 100 kW.
92.1, June 3 at 2112 UT, local KAMG-LP is still on with dead air, but manipulating the antenna can allow some other stations to capture. First, something in Spanish that is not KAMG! M&W conversation. 2120, another peak with a phone number starting 904-469. AC 904 is the NE corner of FL around Jacksonville. Another peak at 2131 discussing in Spanish préstamos – loans from FHA and USDA. WTFDA FM Database has three SS on 92.1 in FL, but this is the only one that fits:
WJXR, 92.1, MACCLENNY FL, 25.0 kW H&V, 100.0m, 30-17-54, 82-00-55, Spanish, TROPICAL, LATINA 92.1
92.1, June 3 at 2113 UT, Spanish WJXR is replaced by English talk, 2118 ad for Guardian Bank, program promos on Talk 92.1, back to Ben Shapiro Show. Guardian Bank is in Valdosta GA, near Adel, and that slogan matches only this:
WDDQ 92.1 ADEL GA 2.6 kW H&V, 154.1m, 31-08-15, 83-23-41, TALK, TALK 92.1, //WSFB 1490
93.3, June 3 at 2133 UT, ad for car dealers on “Mile of Life“ (?), “93.3 The Beat“. That leads to:
WJBT, 93.3, CALLAHAN FL, 98.0 kW H&V, 302.0m, 30-16-51, 81-34-13, HD, 1C99 BOGUS KEUB, Rhythm and Blues, URBAN CONTEMPORARY, 93.3 THE BEAT
The thing is, I was tuned to 93.1; on 93.3 itself there was nothing but CCI hash. BTW before 2130 I added the DX-398 with RDS capability, but none of the Es DX signals were strong or stable enough to display any.
99.5, Unidentified, June 3 at 2138 UT ad in Spanish by super-hype voice actor, fades for ID, mentions Guerrero. There are no 99.5s in that state. If I am still getting Florida, could be WLLY-FM in Palm Beach Gardens, 6 kW H&V, 100m; or a bit of KBIJ, Guymon OK groundwave, 100 kW, 82.0m (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
UNIDENTIFIED. 9200, June 3 at 0610, mystery open carrier is still around, S4-S6 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
