** CHINA [and non]. 10960, scanning for CNR1 jammers, Sept 23 at 1323, not much except a weak signal here, but wait — it`s in English. Altho a regular SOH/jamchan, sure enough what I hear now is matching audio from local 1390 KCRC, quickly computed as overload/external/receiver mix with the S9+30 signal of CRI via CUBA on 9570, which is 1390 kHz below.
I do find some real CNR1s at 1331: 9180 VP Chinese; 9215 & 9230 JBA carriers, and no WOOBs higher up (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 9630 & 9650, Sept 23 at 1328, buzzspurs again out of 9640 RHC transmitter. But no FMs out of 13700-AM. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 6100, Sept 23 at 0607, RHC in SPANISH news, not English, VG S9+30, when there is not supposed to be Spanish on any frequency. Can`t tell if other frequencies are still English: 6000 just went off; 6165 is JBA carrier in HNL; and so is 5040 which normally should penetrate if still on. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1170, Sept 23 at 1234 UT tune-across KFAQ Tulsa as EAS tones are concluding. No known emergency requiring them; what`s up? Right into ordinary weather info from NewsOn6 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. [WOR] 9330 WBCQ SS back on — At 1751 Sept 22 check with music; had not been on at 1700. Does not seem like full power. Maybe will stay on again this evening with Area 51?? (Glenn Hauser, 1755 UT Sept 22, WOR iog via DXLD) But next check 1838 it`s gone again and nothing further into UT Sept 23 (gh)
** U S A. 1280, Sept 23 at 1230 UT from NW/SE mentions Utah in ad; 1231 plug “97-5 The Dog“ sports radio in Utah; nearest KSOK 1280 KS is no problem, QRP if on at all. Some IBOC noise presumably from KRXO OK dominating 1270. So it`s KZNS SLC, U4 50000/670 watts. Well, official FCC sunrise in Sept is not until 1300 UT (October 1345 UT), and this is far too much signal for 670 watts. Day pattern is almost ND, slight advantage to the east and south; night pattern major lobes N/S, not good for us. WTFDA DB shows the main 97.5 KZNS at CoL Coalville, 89 kW ERP horizontal only; plus five low-power co-channel relays but not translators in SLC and various suburbs, with calls such as KZNS-FM4 in SLC. But this and NRC AM Log say the slogan is “1280 The Zone“ as the calls imply, not “The Dawg“. There are several Dawgs (or Dogs) searched on 97.5 but not here, unless a very recent change. It sure sounded like Dawg to me. Shortly after at 1235 UT I compare this to 50 kW ND KSL on 1160 and find it JBA (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 88.1, Sept 23 at 1340 UT, KWOU Woodward OK is in solid for `StarDate` so I know tropo is up. For 1500, Hepburn maps predict a big level-7 blob centered over SE KS, with level 2 extending out past Enid. Starting UHF/VHF DTV scan at 1402:
OKC stations on RF 23, 13, 7 are not decoding, so blocked by DX QRM. Bad signals on 8, 10, 12, 26, 30, 31, 32, 35, 45.
RF 14 briefly decodes enough to display PSIP IDs as DTV 17-1 FOX and without trying to tune up, DTV 17-3 Comet. This matches rabbitears.info only for KOCW Hoisington (central KS, Hays market), 40 kW relaying KSAS via KAAS. W9WI.com confirms that there are no other possibilities in the 4-state area.
Blockage of KOCO RF7 probably also from Hays, KBSH-DT; altho the map would imply KOAM-TV Pittsburg KS 98 kW in the max-tropo target zone
