** CHINA. CNR1 jammers Sept 12 at 1359: JBA carriers on 12880, 12820 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** FRANCE. 21690, Sept 12 at 1524, JBA carrier into Kuwait SDR, presumed RFI Swahili, and still nothing on S-21 registered 25775 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** OKLAHOMA. 515-MCW kHz, Sept 12 at 0635 UT & still 1516 chex, 25-watt NDB PN at Ponca City is OFF! It had returned June 26 after a 10- or 11-month absence. Certainly the best NDB signal here, even better than “local“ 341 EI when it was on; and PN had been noted daily/nightly ever since but not logged. So taking another 11-month break? NO, it`s back on at next check 1829; never mind. BTW, 255 kHz SW Stillwater is still gone.
The new https://rxx.classaxe.com/en/rna/signals shows only a dozen currently or recently active in OK. The ones I still need: 201 BV Bartlesville, 388 OK Okmulgee, 393 BZ Clinton, 400 AI Ardmore. Marked out are *42* more, gone (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)
** PUERTO RICO. 391-MCW kHz, Sept 12 circa 0630, among almost nightly chex, I`m alert for beacon DDP at Dorado, as frequently but not always audible in winter, my only LA NDB, but no sign of it yet. Could it be off? No, still reported at classaxe.com as of 9/11, with speculation that power be 3 kW instead of only 2 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. 402-MCW kHz, Sept 12 at 1356 ND beacon HU, 25 watts from Hutchinson KS. Seldom heard.
414-MCW kHz, Sept 12 at 0647 UT, seems two JBA NDBs mixing; including an S – probably SU, 40 watts from Sioux City IA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5920-5950, Sept 12 at 0621, splatter range out of Dead Gene Scott on WWCR 5935 at extremely strong level S9+40/50 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. 5085, Sept 12 at 0626, S9+10 of dead air from WTWW. They often continue rocking past 0600, but you never know for how long (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. 90.1, Sept 12 at 0600 UT, no sign of KUCO OK, rather KHCC Hutchinson KS. Is KUCO off or with some tropo help has KHCC totally captured the frequency? At 0600-0601 KHCC has double audio, ending `Nightcrossings` with IDs also for its two relay stations, and also BBC top-of-hour ID and promos, 0601-0606 BBC news alone, and stays with BBCWS programming after 0606. I had previously noted Radio Kansas signing off at local midnight, believe it or not, thus no more QRM to KUCO. But that was several months ago. Bigger changes at KHCC:
“Summer Program Schedule Effective July 4th
NOTE: We’re losing Morning Edition and All Things Considered July 5th due to new network fee calculation. Our schedule will feature Marketplace at 5 p.m. and The World both morning and evening!
New Math and the Loss of Drivetime NPR
Thanks for your concern about the loss of Morning Edition (ME) and All Things Considered (ATC). We miss them too!
Our cost for ME & ATC was headed up unsustainably. We’ve transitioned to new programming now rather than risk taking pledges for shows that we know we can’t keep.
You recognize that NPR charges local stations for most shows. Top-notch programming just can’t happen with national underwriter support alone, and so NPR tries to calculate the value these shows bring to each station and its capacity to pay. They recently changed the math. Any change was bound to increase fees for some stations and decrease fees for others. They wouldn’t want us to share the details of their fee calculation, but after a phase-in period, our fee would go up by $70,393 to keep ME & ATC. (See the screen capture to the right). No new programming to entice this additional support from listeners…“
ME & ATC remain available to Wichita-area Kansans on KMUW 89.1, but KHCC will not mention its arch-rival (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search Sept 12 at 0628: 621, 711, 882, 1179, 1296; correlating with Canary Islands – Morocco – – maybe Spain. No 846 so Kiritimati off? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
