** CUBA. 5040, Oct 10 at 0618, RHC English is still on here, and // best 6100, while 6165 has reverted to JBA and 6000 off. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CUBA. 13767 approx., Oct 10 at 1338, RHC struggles to modulate programming in FM beyond the F# tone; out of 13700-AM, which is much weaker than 13740 today. At first only a trace on the matching minusside 13633, but much improved at 1406. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** FRANCE. 13730, Oct 10 at 1529, JBA trace of talk, presumably Issoudun as temporarily scheduled with yachtweather 1500 daily for the Mini-Transat race from France to Gran Canaria which launched Oct 5. No trace of DRM noise on 15300 as sked and no point in trying to hear the 49mb frequencies here (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** IRELAND. 13263.95-USB, Oct 10 at 1332, YL in English with flight weather for Luxembourg, etc. 1335 ID twice as Shannon VOLMET. Without a carrier to pinpoint, she sounds almost human, better slightly below than on nominal 13264 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 1610, Oct 10 at 2008 UT, parked at Oakwood Mall, getting more and more vacant, west side of Enid, noisy carrier here compared to 1620 open on the caradio. On a portable also without BFO, loops roughly NW/SE, which could point to the TIS at Great Salt Plains, near Jet OK; but this is stronger than normally marginally audible in this part of town; yet no NWS weather relay or any modulation. Later at home I do detect a JBA daytime carrier roughly NNW/SSE. This axis could also lead to something on Vance AFB in the opposite direxion where its last TIS was on 530, not 1610. What next? (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. 89.7, Oct 10 at 2004 UT, very unusual dead air from KJTH “The House“, 100 kW gospel rocker Ponca City but like a local here (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** OKLAHOMA. RF 13, Oct 10 at 1802 UT, KETA automatic 4-station OETA legal ID keyed in, again covers up OPEN captioning translation from Arabic talk to English text on PBS documentary via OETA World, 13-2. I complain again to OETA about this, begging them to move the ID to top of screen. They say instead will reduce it from 30 seconds to 10 — a “compromise“ which will now block only one third as many caption fields — progress!! (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 5850, Oct 10 at 0612, WRMI is still on much later than before, with Brother Scare, S9+10 and not synchronized with superfluous WWCR 4840 & 3215. Checking the WRMI skedgrid, http://www.tinyurl.com/WRMIfqs — there`s a lot more green on it as Brother HyStairical has bought a bunch more time. No new frequencies, but old ones have been expanded greatly with more and more BS. May have bumped some other programming as I have not studied it carefully, but not directly affecting any WOR times. Where does BS come up with rich psychophants shoveling money at him?
15770 is one of them, now shown as running all night as well as all day, altho it`s not likely to propagate overnight; Oct 11 at 0231 check I get a JBA carrier (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2003, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 7505v, Oct 11 at 0237, WRNO manages to stay on with gospel huxter in English, but now just barely modulated (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** U S A. 820, Oct 10 at 0052 UT, WBAP still has QRM with slow SAH, somewhat audible when nulled, WBAA singing ID just before 0100, as Largo FL station is *still* obviously on 50 kW day power instead of 1 kW night. If they have a legit problem switching to night power and pattern, they should just turn it off! (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2003, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
