** 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 thegospelstation.com 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 KUCOFM.com 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“ https://diariodecuba.com/cuba/1651858422_39318.html

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 yahoo.com (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)
