** ANTARCTICA. Re 15475.98-RCUSB, Manuel Méndez, Lugo, Spain, replies: “Hi Glenn, I have asked the station staff why LRA 36 has not been on the air the last two Saturdays and they answered that it was due to weather conditions and activities at Base Esperanza. Best 73,s“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, August 3 at 0632, RHC English is nothing but humbuzz; 6100 undermodulated; 6165 & 6060 & 5040 off. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 7157 & 7215, August 3 at 0635, pulse jamming continues in the 40m hamband against nothing, again peaking around these two frequencies only (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** KASHMIR [non]. 15170, Aug 3 at 1503, Kashmir Civitas again booming in to UTwente, VG S9+20 for another weekly Tuesday broadcast in presumed Urdu with constant strumming underneath; one English word heard: “teamwork“. Via IRRS presumably Romania (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. Daytime NDB check August 3 at 2215 UT: 515-MCW, PN, Ponca City is back on; 350-MCW RG OKC and 351-MCW EI Enid also audible, and even 395-MCW Ulysses KS – but not the other KS; and 332-MCW IC Wichita is unusually not audible. This on one receiver with a lower noise level and loop antenna. A few minutes later on the other receiver with higher noise and longwire, 515 PN is unheard, not even the carrier, but 332 IC is JBA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 93.9, Aug 3 at 1545 UT on caradio, KIMY Watonga has finally resumed modulating after 4 days of dead air as carrier stayed on; praise music. The Praisee must have felt abandoned (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 96.9, Aug 3 at 1546 UT on caradio, KQOB is still off the air for a second day, audiblizing the next 96.9, KKOW-FM Pittsburg KS in the fringe with a 417 AC Joplin ad.

Brock Whaley, Aiken SC, found the reason why KQOB disappeared:

“In other filings with the FCC, CHAMPLIN BROADCASTING, INC. applied for an STA to operate KQOB/ENID, OK at another tower site on a temporary basis due to damage to the existing antenna. via allaccess.com Aug. 3“

So I dig into FCC documentation. Here it is:

https://licensing.fcc.gov/cgi-bin/ws.exe/prod/cdbs/forms/prod/cdbsmenu.hts?context=25&appn=101826979&formid=911&fac_num=10857

“Exhibit 4
Description: JUSTIFICATION FOR THE STA REQUEST

CHAMPLIN BROADCASTING INC. REQUESTS A STA TO RELOCATE STATION KQOB TO ANOTHER TOWER SITE ON A TEMPORARY BASIS DUE TO DAMAGE TO ITS EXISTING ANTENNA. THE KQOB ANTENNA SUFFERED A BURN OUT AND WILL NEED REPLACEMENT. IN THE MEANTIME, CBI HAS RECEIVED PERMISSION TO RELOCATE TO THE AUXILIARY SITE LOCATION OF STATION KWPN. THE 60 DBU CONTOUR OF THIS LOCATION WILL NOT EXTEND BEYOND THE CURRENT 60 DBU CONTOUR OF KQOB.

Attachment 4
Antenna Location Coordinates: (NAD 27)
Latitude: Degrees 35 Minutes 34 Seconds 11 North
Longitude: Degrees 97 Minutes 30 Seconds 2

7.4. Overall Tower Height Above Ground Level: 92 meters
7.5. Height of Radiation Center Above Mean Sea Level: 445 meters(H) 445 meters(V)
7.6. Height of Radiation Center Above Ground Level: 88.4 meters(H) 88.4 meters(V)
7.7. Height of Radiation Center Above Average Terrain: 96 meters(H) 96 meters(V)
7.8. Effective Radiated Power: 9 kW(H) 9 kW(V)“

KWPN is AM 640, CoL Moore, SE of OKC. Now KQOB can be a real OKC station, never mind Enid. But coordinates above do not match FCC info for KWPN, i.e.. its main site, not aux.

“CDBS NAD27 coordinates:
35° 17′ 21.00″ N
97° 30′ 08.00″ W
Use NAD27 in CDBS applications.“

The out of use KQOB site west of Crescent:
“Previous NAD27 coordinates:
35° 58′ 50.00″
97° 41′ 42.00″“

Map pin goes to SE corner of North 3rd and East Oak in center of Enid! but it`s at edge of contour circle centered approx. W of Crescent where the tower really is, but not marked as such.

At 0027 UT August 4, KQOB still appears to be off; altho when it return on such a low-power, 9/9 kW, faraway STA, it may be unnoticeable without strain here in its CoL (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

Our non-commercial broadcasts and website depend on voluntary support: thanks this week to Chuck Ermatinger: Eureka MO, for two contributions via PayPal, not necessarily in US funds, to woradio at yahoo.com

One may also contribute by MO or check in US funds on a US bank to: Glenn Hauser, Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 USA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1200, August 3 at 0646 UT, gospel huxter in English overcoming WOAI San Antonio, not only now but often when monitored on my E/W longwire which admittedly is unideal for a station slightly west of south. Makes a fast SAH with `C2CAM` on WOAI. On the DX-398 I try to DF it, and find it`s slightly east of due north, i.e. the two are almost exactly opposite, which is bad news for would-be WOAI listeners: if you null the QRM here you also null WOAI.

It`s got to be KFNW, Fargo ND, which is a g.h. station but all its night power of 13 kW is supposed to head north! Must be totally out of whack; and if so, why not ascribe 50 kW day power to it too, when pattern is also northward but a significant minor lobe southward. No other possibilities than KFNW by format, language and direxion. It`s ironic that the original “Clear Channel“ station, WOAI, find itself in such a situation; but who cares now? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Re: “`American Experience` is a PBS series, so I looked for it first there, but unfound; at YouTube there are lots of Farnsworth audiovideos, but haven`t found the AmEx one there either. Exact direct link? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)“

“Hi Glenn – Please see https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/americanexperience/films/bigdream/ (Ron Howard, CA)“

“Glenn,
Here are the “You Tube” links (yes it’s broken into two parts here).

part 2 : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vtKjZRxAJBU
Dave Zantow N9EWO, Janesville, WI“ [also via Tom Roberts] (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 15120, August 3 at 2220, S5-S6 of open carrier, not much else on band, but stronger than Cuba on 15230, 15370. VOA is finished with 15120 at 2200, while CRI via Cuba starts at 0000 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 0051 UT August 4
