** PALAU [and non]. Re: T8WH PALAU firing back up:
Correspondence with Scott Reppert of Hope Radio:
“Mr Reppert, We are getting reports the last few days of Radio Free Asia testing in Vietnamese at 1330-1430 UT on 9955 kHz. Is this via Palau? Can you definitely confirm whether or not? Are you also planning to lease it to RFA? Thanks, Glenn Hauser“, Oct 8.
“Glenn: It was not us. A link to our frequencies is below. We do not have any plans to lease to anyone right now, but would possibly consider it should something come our way. https://www.hoperadio.net/frequencies
Scott Reppert“, Oct 12. Viz.:
Angel 3 0800-2300 UTC M-Sun 9930
Angel 4 0100-0500 UTC [days not specified] 15675
Angel 5 0800-1200 UTC [days not specified] 9965
*winter frequencies commence on October 25, 2020*“
“Scott, When do you expect to start testing? Since you are still referring to the transmitters as Angels, will LeSea/FBC still be involved in this, such as your leasing rather than buying them outright? Glenn“
“I will have to check with our engineer on site to see when the repairs we are making to the facilities will be done. When he gives us the go-ahead, I’ll let you know. Even though the Angel names were kept (in honor of Dr. Sumrall), we own the stations outright. Scott“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, Oct 12, WOR iog)

** U S A. 6160v, Oct 13 at 0005, Larry Will explains absence this weekend: “Hi Glenn, There was a lightning event at WBCQ on Saturday evening at around 0030 UT Sunday October 11 that damaged some equipment at the classic WBCQ facility, including the 6160 transmitter and some of the support equipment for the AM and FM systems. 6160 is back online this evening as I write this, although it is running on lower power as repairs proceed. We expect full service to resume sometime this week if all goes well. Thanks, Lw“
So then I check it at 0009 via Rochester SDR, VP S4-S6 with AMSynch carrier offset reading minus 80 Hz, i.e. 6159.92. At 0013 direct to here, JBA but measured 6159.920. Yet 7490.06 is S9+10 with cool jazz on FTIOM (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. 7505, Oct 13 at 0025 and still at 0200 chex, NO signal from WRNO, gone again. Maybe crashed after last night`s distorted overmodulation and splatter (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
