** NIGERIA. 11769.903, Sept 9 at 2033, VON one of better 25mb signals at this time, S9-S7 but very undermodulated, can`t tell the language but presumably not English. Must also check here when 7254.9 be missing for the 0600 broadcast, as Ivo Ivanov found it on instead, “Voice of Nigeria on wrong 11770v, instead of 7255v kHz, September 10 from 0600 Hausa, from 0700 Fulfulde and upcoming from 0800 English“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 930, Sept 10 at 0028 UT, WKY OKC in English! With the demise of ESPN-D[eportes], what to do with this legacy station? Sports talk in English! In fact, at 0047 plugs sibling station WWLS The Sports Animal (98.1) which is also on KWPN 640 Moore, but not // at the moment. At 0201 UT I find that 930 is // 640 but running 7 seconds behind it. And again at 0620 UT when both are on ESPN Radio (in English).
What a great variety Radio License Holding CBC, LLC are providing! BTW, these two stations are not part of any other AM cluster in OKC. according to FCC Licensee info. Oh, yeah?
At 1459 UT Sept 10, I monitor the ToH breaks on all three stations. 640 and 930 are not // but 930 is // 98.1, if not synched. At 1502 legal ID on 98.1 starts with WWLS, then a bunch of mostly AM affiliates all over OK, to which WKY has been added at the end; as part of Cumulus. And the same multi-station ID comes around 27 seconds later on 930. But FCC AM Query shows Cumulus is *not* the licensee of any AM station in OK. How about FM? Allegedly, ONLY ONE: 107.3 KOMS Poteau! What is going on here? Well, RLH CBC LLC must be a subsidiary of Cumulus, but why? Try to reach the former on Wikipedia and you are redirected to Cumulus without explanation. Could CBC stand for the obvious?
On FM, the following in OK are licensed to Radio License Holding CBC LLC, per FCC FM Query: WWLS-FM 98.1 The Village [NW OKC suburb where I used to live], KYIS 98.9 OKC, KATT 100.5 OKC, KKWD 104.9 Bethany. Except for 104.9 which I could not hear anyway, the other three FM would get knocked off the air simultaneously via storms.
WKY used to run some commercials and PubAffs shows in English; so now will they insert anything in Spanish? When ESPN-D appeared, WKY dismissed their “La Indomable“ Spanish DJ staff. From Nov. 2014: http://www.w4uvh.net/WKY930AM-ad.jpg
Former ESPN-D affiliates everywhere must be trying to find something to replace it; will English or Spanish prevail? See my recent report of 1650 KSVE El Paso TX (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1580, Sept 9 at 1757 UT, I notice that KOKB Blackwell is back on the air; might have resumed Sept 8 before I noticed. Had been off since at least Sept 3 (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 88.3, as of Sept 10, I have been meaning to note that the Family Radio satellator in Enid, K202BY, has been totally off the air again for about a week. Not just dead air! A little less QRM for my SW caradio feeder set on 88.3; and with it off, 88.3 open again for KOSR Stillwater, if not DX (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9475 & 5830, Sept 9 at 2035, WTWW-1 is off now and most of the time rather than on with SFAW PPPP (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 1490, Sept 10 at 0625 UT, “The Entertainer“ by Joplin on piano is just ending as some signal is briefly atop the graveyard jungle/jumble, then “The Fabulous 1490, KDMO“ YL ID, seems to loop NE/SW before fade. That`s Carthage MO, near Joplin, ENE. Could Scott`s tunes be thematic for Joplinites? Still NOStalgia format. Previously logged here Sept 7, 2017 at 1240 UT.
BTW, not to be confused with KDMO, the airport ID in Sedalia MO beyond, which runs beacon DMO on 281 kHz as reported by Harold Frodge, MI. Nor with Sedalia`s 1490 station, KDRO! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
