** OKLAHOMA. May 10 at 1715 UT on caradio in garage, another FM check compared to yesterday noon:

93.9, KIMY Watonga has now managed to modulate, as one of acknowledging support from the Pollard Theater, Guthrie, which I had assumed was a secular institution.

Website has a coverage map centred in OK but with outliers in TX, AR, OH, TN. Tho singularly named, it`s axually a 17-station network:

88.3 South Central OK
88.3 Broken Bow, OK
88.3 Dibrell, TN
90.1 HD2 Edmond OK
91.5 Henryetta/South Tulsa OK
91.5 Wichita Falls, TX/Lawton, Duncan, OK
91.9 Granite/Altus OK
93.9 Watonga/Kingfisher/Weatherford, OK
99.7 HD4 Amarillo, TX
100.1 Chickasha, OK
101.5 Oklahoma City Metro
102.7 Paris, TX
103.9 Bartlesville, OK
104.7 Amarillo, TX
105.1 Ada, OK
106.9 Hillsboro, OH
107.3 Edmond/Guthrie, OK

Note the 90.1 HD2 Edmond, which means is sapping some of the power out of KUCO, our classical station with a signal much weaker than equivalent commercial OKC stations. But renting the HD2 to gospel huxters helps pay their bills. You would never know there is such a connexion by inspecting the website.

88.3, at 1717 UT May 10, dead air in stereo from the KJIL 99.1 translator in Enid, K202BY, at least for a few minutes; modulating when next checked at 0226 UT May 11.

104.7, at 1718 UT May 10, dead air in mono with some CCI. Normal fringe dominator is KQSN Ponca City, 25/25 kW. 1830 recheck now driving, is on with slogan “The Maul“ — or Moll — or Mall? They all sound alike, but in db as “The Bull“. Why name station for a stupid animal? Could the DA have been a silent unID unfed nearby RF feeder instead? Would expect one of those to be $tereo (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** ROMANIA. From Wolfgang Buschel, more about missing RRI frequencies: “Sender Țigănești TX1, — missing transmitter function since April 1, 2021: … is the 2nd attempt, after a wrong order with a wrong component to repair attempt in 2021. 73 wb“ and forwards this from someone in translation:

“Good afternoon, here is the promised answer to the question about the reactivation of the Țigănești TX1 transmitter: A conversation with RADIOCOM revealed that they were [awaiting] the delivery of a capacitor from China. Delivery date would be June at the earliest. Kind regards, Alexander“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 9830, May 10 at 2252, VOT English is S9+10/20 into Marylandm reciting entire English transmission schedule as always in somewhat jumbled form, and with quite a hum; IS and cut off at 2255* before can switch to bonus German. Something`s always erroneous at Emirler (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** UKRAINE [non]. 7730, May 10 at 0501-0506, UR1 via WRMI with `Ukraine: Security Issue`, the fast-talker in English for May 9, Day 76 of the War, VG into Maryland SDR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2137 monitoring: confirmed UT Tuesday May 10 at 0037 the 0030 on WRMIs direct, 9395 & 9455 both S9/+10 but somewhat lower modulation level on 9395.

Also confirmed Tuesday May 10 at 2230 on WRMI 9955: S6/9+10 direct with no jamming audible; then at 2250 checking remotes to the SSE where it`s allegedly aimed, little or nothing to Boa Vista or St Lucia; nor even Knoxville to the NNW. But it`s S9/+10 to Maryland as lite jamming becomes audible and builds toward 2300 for Radio Libertad, since there is no liberty allowed in CUBA. The Other Side:

“Cuba touts itself as a ‘medical powerhouse,’ but many citizens have to go abroad for treatment — Most of them apply for humanitarian visas to be treated in ‘the belly of the monster’. DDC Madrid 06 Mayo 2022 – 19:33 CEST“

1000 UT Wednesday Unique R, Australia 5035-USB or 3210-USB
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0030 UT Thursday WRMI 9395 to NNW; 9455 to WNW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S; 9395 to NNW

Full schedule including AM, FM, webcasts, satellite, podcasts:

Thanks this week for financial support from Robert W Gruska, Glendale NY, who sent a PMO to Glenn Hauser, P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702, and says: “World of Radio has been one of the few programs available on radio that I look forward to listening to week after week since first listening to the broadcasts on WRNO back in the 1980s using a portable multi-band radio that included shortwave. Thanks for your efforts!“

One may also contribute by check in US$ on a US bank to the PO Box. BTW, rental cost for the PO Box itself keeps escalating.

Or via PayPal, not necessarily in US funds, to woradio at (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Doug Smith replies re contradictory info about KKFI 90.1 KC/MO which I DXed at some 300 miles/500 km:

“The 5.31 kW KKFI facility is a backup transmitter. If you look in the FCC LMS records, the “service” is “FS” instead of “FM”. There’s an old permit (superseded) for a different site but both that permit and the actual site in use are east of I-435, well inside Missouri“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. RF 12, May 10 at 1450 UT, tropo up again much like yesterday morning, lots of BAD VHF & UHF DTV signals, but only this decodes, KSCW 33-1 Wichita but carrying Eyewitness News from KWCH “12“ on 12, which itself is really on RF 19 (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)
