** CANADA. 335-MCW kHz, Aug 17 at 0624 UT, ND beacon YLD is JBA, 1000 watts from Chapleau ON. Only other ones making it lately but not specifically logged at this time: 332 QT Thunder Bay, and 382 YPL Pickle Lake, both ONs (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** KASHMIR [non]. 15170, Aug 17 at 1515, another Tuesday-only broadcast of IRRS with Kashmir Civitas; via UTwente, S9+25, cuts off air for few seconds just as I tune in and back on. This week it keeps going in presumed Urdu talk with understrumming, no early cut to extraneous songs in English. Still talking when modulation cut at 1529, replaced by ROMANIA interval signal twice until carrier off at 1529.5*. It also sounded like a power reduxion and increase in noise level before RRI IS started, but was not watching strength meter (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** KIRITIMATI. 846 kHz, Aug 17 at 0625, JBA carrier the only one on 9-kHz intervals. A bit stronger than last time, but I never get any audio from presumed R. Kiribati; Xmas island so far eastward from the rest of the far-flung island nation that it`s already long post-sunset 0438 UT, at Kiritimati UT +14, https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/kiribati/kiritimati similar to Hawaii to the north at UT -10 = really the same zone except for 24 hours apart (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** SPAIN [and non]. 15520, Aug 17 at 2257, S5-S6 of dead air no doubt from REE into Maryland SDR, yet another day of RNE failing to modulate, presumably for several hours, while the other three frequencies are to be heard, 17855, 11940 and 11670. 15520 continues dead past 2301 until cutoff at 2306* — probably the normal weekday time following a few minutes of earworm IS as on 11670 but unchecked during this period after noting 2301 that frequency had RHC colliding, just now on air // 11760, with REE // 11940. By 2306 recheck, only RHC is left on 11670. Something`s nonsensical at Noblejas: they keep turning the 15520 transmitter on but do not notice it`s silent (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1540, Aug 17 at 0632 UT, “America`s Best Music, AM 1540 and 98-7 FM“. NRC AM Log shows that matches KBOA Kennett MO in the SE corner bootheel, NOStalgia format, U1, 1000 watts day, ONE WATT night, yeah, sure. That would be 700 km per watt, or 435 miles per watt. Briefly atop jumble including talker presumed 50 kW KXEL IA and vs ever-present het from 1540.2, WKVQ, Eatonton GA daytimer (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. 1550 kHz, am trying August 17 to confirm KKLE Winfield KS, which apparently has been off air for almost a year, time to make a showing or lose license; in light of sibling Rocking M Media station 1130 KLEY Wellington KS, C&W music already back on for several days and audible even at night despite legal power of ONE WATT.
In fact, per NRC AM Log, KKLE shares exactly the same Wellington street address as KLEY! Could both also be at same transmitter site? No, FCC info shows KKLE in fact at Winfield, east of Wellington and north of Ark. City. KKLE is 250 watts daytime and ND but if on, nowhere near the 250-watt day signal 1130 puts in here with direxional disadvantage if really in play, but with lower-frequency groundwave advantage. 1550 on or off has never been obvious here like 1130.
1550, Aug 17 at 1502 UT on R75 with E/W longwire, I have sports talk interview, not news, fading with fast SAH, so at least two stations. On DX-398, DF of most signal from NNE/SSW, i.e. KKLE. At 1700 on ND caradio, music which among the closest 1550s implies KRZD Springfield MO, 5 kW ND if it`s still rock as in last year`s NRC AM Log. KMAD Madill in S OK next to TX also listed as C&W, 250 watts ND, but I never hear it and not sure it be on air now.
At 1704 UT on NRD-545 with E-W loop, I can hear an “ESPN Radio“ mention, which points to KYAL Sapulpa OK, 2.5 kW direxional, and the `dominant` daytime 1550 if you can call it that. Also in the fringe area is KDCC Dodge City KS, but listed with Fox Sports Radio, 1 kW direxional. KKLE format was News/Talk, which I am not now hearing on 1550, but I did have a DF of at least a carrier from that angle.
I also monitored 1550 around sunset, 0100+ UT, but too much further confusion with skywavers also incoming. August SS/SR times for KKLE to switch between ND 250 and 52 watt powers: 0115/1145; September: 0030/1215 UT. NRC says KKLE also has pre-sunrise authority for 63 watts, i.e. from 1100 UT until times above. But from KLEY 1130 behavior, it`s kleyr that Rocking M stations don`t strictly follow the rules of federal communications LAW (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
