** CUBA [and non]. 6030, Sept 10 at 0707, traces of comedic CFVP Calgary but now Cuban jamming dominates and also strings of beeps, like 16 in a row, then pause, as sometimes also infect jammed frequencies (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** NORTH AMERICA. MRI writes me early UT Sept 9:
“Hello Glenn. I am working on another classical show. I may load it into radio broadcast software I am testing. If the propagation is good and band noise is low maybe this Thursday or Friday or Saturday evening around 2200 UTC. I will try to use the 43M band. You can publicize it. Thank you for posting your QSL on WOR.
By the way if you listen on a Kiwi SDR move the left slider little below into LSB. This will pick up my bass audio. Move the right slider out to 6K for the highs. You can also use IQ mode and open the right slider all the way to 6 Kc. I mostly use IQ mode on kiwi. My audio response is from 10 Hz up to (12.5 Kc SSB sometimes).
This is a air check of MRI done by a listener with a SDR opened up to our full bandwidth. He is just a little off frequency otherwise a great recording.

Busy producing WOR Thu Sept 9 at 2200, couldn`t check but no reports of it yet in HFU. Time later in evening would be better like before until 0340* (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** OKLAHOMA. 1170, Sept 10 at 0656 UT, “The New Blitz“ in stupid sportstalk, and the call letters no longer sound like KFAQ; 0659 has a fast SAH vs algo, and BTW, Tulsa station is still very much IBOC ruining KSL 1160 from 1157 and whatever on 1180 from 1183. Does KSL still return the disfavor on 1173? Too comparably weak to be sure.
Then ID as “The Blitz, KTSB“. So as suspected, not only format flip by same owners as KWTV & KOTV, but also new calls, goodbye to KFAQ. FCC AM Query can no longer find any KFAQ, since KTSB replaced it as of Sept 6; KFAQ replaced original KVOO on May 10, 2002, “Voice of Okahoma“. Original license, as KVOO? started July 19, 1926. Later lent its letters too the original channel A2, KVOO-TV, later the ugly call KJRH. I wonder what KTSB signify? The Sports Blitz? They could have made it KBTZ or KBLZ, neither of which is applicable to any existing AM station (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO monitoring: Richard Lemke, Alberta, reports: “breaking news, new air time 0030 UTC, Dear Glenn: Just ran across your show on 9395 kHz, with good signals at 0030 – 0100 just before Argentina to the world begins, Sep 9 UTC, 2021 Richard 73’s“
Then I check the WRMI program skedgrid and find not only that but some other additions:
UT Friday 0330 on 5985* – first time on this frequency, to South
UT Sunday 0030 on 7730 to WNW [in addition to same UT Monday] UT Monday 0030 not only 7730 but also 9395 NNW, 9455 WNW
UT Thursday 0030 not only 9395 but also 9455
WOR 2102 confirmed UT Thu Sept 9 at 0130 on WRMI 5010, as usual VP direct as it`s aimed south, reads S9 but high noise level.
WORLD OF RADIO 2103 contents: Afghanistan non, Antarctica, (Armenia), Australia, Brasil, Canada, China/East Turkistan, Eritrea/Ethiopia, France, (Germany), Guinea, Japan and non, Korea North and non/Korea South, Macedonia North, Mauritius, North America, Portugal, (Taiwan), UK, USA, (Uzbekistan); Beacon of Hate; Havana Syndrome; propagation outlook (countries mentioned with others not in alfabetical order)
Confirmed first broadcasts UT Friday September 10 at 0130 on WRMIs: 5850 VG direct S9+20/30; 7780 S9+10 but sounds much weaker and had started fading down just before WOR.
*New airing UT Fri 0330 on 5985: NOT confirmed Sept 10; instead, Wavescan is running! I`ve asked Jeff whether WOR will start next week, and to confirm or deconfirm the other new airings as above which I also cited opening WOR 2103.
>From 0328, 5985 ran IS & ID loop, BBB convinced that programming will start at “top of the hour“!! Except when it`s the BoH, S9/+10 VG into Bonaire SDR but needs narrowing or uppering to avoid Cuban jamming from 5980. Note: 5985 frequency is WRMI-14 on 181 degree antenna, same as 5010 at 2100-0300. WRMI-2 is also on 5985 zero hours per day at 222 degrees to Central America.
WOR 2103 is available as of 0013 UT Friday September 10, 2021

** U S A. 830, Sept 10 at 0638 UT, surprised to hear Jim Bohannon going to a commercial break. Has to be dominant station WCCO Minneapolis, unaware on the Jimbo net. In fact, Jim does not know that either per https://www.jimbohannonshow.com/station-finder/ where only three 830s are in CA, MA and PA, and none beyond the live airtime ending at 0500! Lots of MN, but no station listed in M/SP per se (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Sept 10 at 0234-0241: 531, 585, 621, 657, 684, 711, 729, 747, 774(2), 837, 855, 882(2), 909, 936(2), 954, 963, 999, 1044* strongest, 1107(2), 1116, 1125, 1152, 1215, 1224, 1305(2), 1422 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
UNIDENTIFIED. 1130, Sept 10 at 0654 UT, Mexican music occasionally audible vs KWKH `The Tiger` in English. Probably WLBA Gainesville GA, 10 kW daytimer, as in my August 9 report (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
