** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98 RCUSB, May 11 at 1528, NO signals from LRA36 into 8 KiwiSDRs, 4 in Argentina, 4 in Brasil. Manuel Méndez got a whatsapp notification yesterday that RNASG was going to broadcast this Wednesday at 1500 repeating the Saturday show. They started to, says Kari Kallio, Finland, but dumped off the air already at 1508*. That explains it (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** GERMANY [non]. 11850, May 11 at 0634, YL talk in unknown language, S4/S7 direct. Aoki shows it`s DW in Hausa via FRANCE.
I really have no “feel“ for recognizing Hausa, one of the major languages of Nigeria, no keywords like “imnida“, a giveaway for Korean. I investigate via Google Translate: how would they say “Hier ist die Deutsche Welle“? — “Ga Deutsche Welle“. How about “This is the Voice of America“? — “Wannan ita ce Muryar Amurka“. The ADDX language schedules show Hausa still on SW via all these: AWR, VOA, TRT, BBC, IRIB, RFI, VON, DW, CRI (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** OKLAHOMA. 104.9, May 11 at 1702 UT, “KQSN Ponca City, oklahomabull.com, 104-7 The Bull“ also offering bull rides, and what else? Country music. That URL converts to https://www.myhometownpost.com/1047thebull as part of a group also including WBBZ 1230, 95.9 Bob FM, KSOK 103.3 & 1280, the latters axually in Arkansas City, Kansas.
I`m bandscanning on the caradio as Hepburn tropo map for “Ern No America“ predicts as of 1800, a Level 5 = strong tropoblob almost to Enid covering eastern OK, and large parts of the ArkLaTex — but nothing special now, not even Tulsa enhancement. Similar on the F5LEN tropo map for the “west coast“, but less extensive.
104.9 I also inspect, which bore The Metroplex S Asian station before: now fading out and in is “Wild 104-9“ which per WTFDA db is merely KKWD Bethany OK, 6/6 kW, 100 m HAAT.
Whatever became of newish 104.9, KEUC Ringwood, much closer but only 0.1/0.1 kW, 21 m HAAT with EWTN; is it on the air? I haven`t heard it even on the west side of Enid (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

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.
