** CUBA. 5040, July 8 at 0536, open carrier of S8-S9: could it be Vanuatu? Too weak for Cuba and too strong for Van, but since there is a JBA carrier on 7260 now, RV presumed back on that sked, and Havana must be ailing, where something is always wrong (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CUBA. 13638 & 13762 approx., July 8 at 1443, RHC weak spurblobs with music in FM and F# tone above Cmiddle as usual, out of 13700-AM which is S9/+10. But the second orders JBA circa 13826 and trace 13576 bear a lower tone of C#, never noted before. Hz equivalents are approx. 370 & 270. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** EAST TURKISTAN. 15665, July 8 at 0528, JBA talk, listed as CRI Russian via Urumqi at 04-06 — a “midnight sun“ log from the land of ChiCom genocide against Uighurs and other Moslems (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** OKLAHOMA. Level-3 tropo blob predicted over N Central OK as far as OKC brings in some LPTVs not normally visible. My antenna is now only the roof-mounted ch 7+ VHF/UHF permanently aimed SSE toward OKC. Back element reflector is a bit loose but taped up. This is UT Thursday July 8 from 0315.
RF 28, Ion 44-1 which would be Tulsa
RF 35? KUOK PSIP seen briefly but should be 36? Saved by STB? The real KUOK in Woodward is RF 36 & virtual 36; while the OKC version, KUOK-CD is now also on RF 36 & virtual 36. What we normally see on virtual 36-1 is really from the full-power KTUZ-29 Shawnee transmitter also with 30-1 as competing Telemundo, and 48-1 as Estrella TV.
BAD signals on 26, 22, 21, 20, 15, 11
RF 35, 35-1 with credits from NFB Canada film about native matters; FNX logo but no other explicit ID nor any on the PSIP, and into another First Nations program. This is solid on the STB into my old CRT TV, but on the Sanyo DTV screen, error message “Scrambled Program“. No, it isn`t! Both my TVs are fed by splitting feed from same antenna. It holds up for about 15 minutes as I am tuning around.
This is obviously K35MV-D licensed to Concho OK, which is just west of OKC, and have seen before. Non-ID is “47.1 FNX“. Rabbitears.com say it is “CATV 47“, presumably where it be found on Cox cable thruout? OKC. FNX has *368* affiliates thruout USA, mostly LP or translators but a real PBS station KNME Albuquerque included. More info from website linked at rabbitears:
“Welcome! K35MV-D C&A TV – Cheyenne and Arapaho Television is proud to serve you! ABOUT US:
Cheyenne and Arapaho Television- C&A TV is making history as the first Native American owned and operated broadcast TV station in the State of Oklahoma. It is one of only a handful of Native American TV Stations in the U.S.
The establishment of K47MU-D Cheyenne and Arapaho Television was made possible by a Facilities Grant from NTIA.
C&A TV is a low power Public Broadcast TV station broadcasting from the C&A Tribal Headquarters in Concho, OK since July 2012.
In 2018 the FCC sold C&A TV’s frequency to T-Mobile and required us to change our broadcast frequency and call letters. We are now channel 35.1 and have the call letters K35MV-D.
K35MV-D Cheyenne and Arapaho Television – C&A TV provides 100% Native American television programming to our viewing audience 24/7 as well as serve our tribal members by providing local community and tribal government information, language education, and documenting our cultural events.
C&A TV is a proud affiliate of the FNX Channel First Nations Experience. www.fnx.org
Together with FNX, Cheyenne and Arapaho Television is providing Oklahoma with a rich cultural viewing experience to our Native as well as our Non-Native audience. It is our hope that we not only present positive and inspiring images of Native Americans but also that through cultural exposure and education, we foster a better appreciation and understanding between Oklahoma’s Non-Native and Native communities.
To preserve the history, language and culture of the Cheyenne and Arapaho people and to present programming that informs, educates, uplifts, inspires, and promotes their mental and physical well being.
CATV47 intends to provide the best Native American programming available in North America that will respect, honor and uplift the Native American peoples, traditions and cultures in general and whenever and however possible, the Cheyenne and Arapaho people specifically.
* LANGUAGE: We will strive to preserve and promote use of the Cheyenne and Arapaho languages by producing original language education programming aimed at both children and adults.
* ELDERS: We will honor and respect our tribal elders by capturing and preserving their stories and their wisdom.
* CHILDREN AND YOUTH: We will produce Children’s programming that promotes a positive and healthy self-image by instilling a sense of pride in their culture and heritage. We will also produce yout programming that will promote healthy lifestyle choices ( to remain drug free and avoid alcohol abuse) as well as staying in school and promoting secondary education.
* SOCIAL ISSUES INFORMATION: Provide information on resources and tribal programs for social issues that plague the tribe like suicide, alcohol abuse, depression, domestic and sexual abuse, drop-outs, teen pregnancy and unemployment.
* CULTURAL UNDERSTANDING: It is our hope that through exposure to our television programming we may foster a better understanding and appreciation of Native American culture among the Non-Native cultures.
We hope that C&A TV will not only continue to be a symbol of pride and accomplishment for the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes but also a source of quality Native American information and entertainment.
C&A TV is a public, non commercial, educational TV station and depends on underwriting and generous gifts from viewers like YOU! Please click on the “DONATE” button and give what you can to help us to continue to provide you with this unique programming.
