** BRAZIL. 9673.22V, July 4 at 0638, RVM gospel music wobbling around here as I try to measure it, good signal and modulation (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CHINA. 13530 & 13130 & weaker 13020, July 4 at 1457, the regular CNR1 jammers with pop music (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** CUBA. 12000, July 4 at 0618, RHC English S6/S8, 2 x 6000 which is much stronger. This harmonic appears only occasionally, at transmitter maladjustments? By 0650, these three are unusually all still on: 6000, 6060, 6100 but not 6165. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2145 monitoring: Also confirmed Sunday July 3 at 2000 on IRRS SW via AM Italia 1323 kHz, S9+20/25 into nearby Noale SDR including heavy splash from much stronger adjacents on 1314 and 1332, plus storm crashes.
Also confirmed Sunday July 3 at 2237 the 2230 still on WRMI 5950, S9+10/22 into Georgia SDR with storm crashes.
Also confirmed UT Monday July 4 at 0033 the 0030 on WRMI 7780 S7/S9 into Athens GA SDR, better here than some others checked, even Durango2 and TWR Brownsville.
Also confirmed UT Monday July 4 from 0259 on Area 51 via WBCQ 6159.942, S7/S9 into Maryland SDR, trying to avoid ACI from 6165 RHC thru LSB tuning narrow, or AM narrow, but can`t get rid of it completely as these two stations refuse to distance from each other.

** U S A. 9940, July 4 at 0645, WTWW with soft rock at S6/S9, still on but not so strong, // 5085 at S9+40 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. 5890, July 4 at 0647, this WWCR is missing TOMBS, while 5935 and 4840 remain (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
** U S A. Sporadic E FM DX opening Saturday July 2 at 1829-1930 UT from Michigan and vicinity, somewhat Lower than last time; on caradio with fender vertical antenna only, standard provisos to which I add: no possibility of side-tuning to even frequencies avoiding QRM; strictly UT:
We start off with a rather confusing situation; perhaps Chris Kadlec can straighten it out.
92.9 at 1829, strong rock/rap. Nothing further here, but based on following logs we look up Michigan: WJZQ 92.9 CADILLAC MI CONTEMPORARY HIT RADIO Z93 100.0 kW 278.0 m Z93 Today’s Best Hits Top 40 — website is: https://www.z93hits.com/ but its studio is in Traverse City, not too far but not too close, to Cadillac — 1369 km = 851 mi
93.5 at 1830, music CCI with Hayes KS fringer. Later at 1855, “The Rock Station K-L-T“; 1900 “Rogers City – Alpena, The Rock Station K-L-T“. WBCM relays:WKLT 97.5 93.5 BOYNE CITY MI ROCK 97.5 WKLT 14.0 kW 283.0 m The trouble is: Boyne City, just S of Petoskey on the NW coast, is 100+ miles from Rogers City & Alpena on the NE coast. So it relays the KLT station as below on 97.5 yet gives own frequency 93.5. But the 97.5 station is in Kalkaska, just east of Traverse City in the NW. It`s also linked to a 98.9 station but not branded as KLT which applies only to 97.5 and 93.5. Is 98.9 serving RC&A? No, it`s in Petoskey. Boyne City: 1458 km = 906 mi
93.9 at 1830, music CCI with KIMY OK. And at 1841
97.5 at 1831, a poet quoted, maybe the source of 93.5 above. 1848, mattress ad in Traverse City. Great Lakes Land with lots in northern MI: WKLT 97.5 KALKASKA MI CLASSIC ROCK KLT THE ROCK STATION 32.0 kW 188.0 m 97.5 FM 98.9 FM KLT The Rock Station //WRGZ 96.7 – 1415 km = 880 mi
93.7 at 1833, Lakers, trends in baseball; unlikely residual KSPI OK; 1835, Z-93, YL DJ on blood giving, Michelle Peréz at noon to one; 929-HITS which chex as number for Z-93, not to be confused with anything on 92.9 MHz: https://www.z93hits.com/contact, Traverse City ads, Cherry Festival, Downtown Arts Fest; Tony`s Best Tacos, Z-93. Must be this just S of Traverse City, but not branded as Z-93: WKAD relays:WMBN-1340 93.7 HARRIETTA MI SPORTS THE TICKET 4.3 kW 119.0 m // W284DF 104.7 — 1354 km = 841 mi
93.3 at 1834, CCI with Jake OKC
95.3 at 1843, plug event in Kresge Auditorium which chex as Interlochen i.a.; arts fest, Interlochen.org – a classical mecca with arts school. None especially close but outreach probably beyond the WIAA coverage area, like this non-comm down the coast: WGVS-FM 95.3 WHITEHALL MI NEWS/JAZZ WGVU 88.5 & 95.3FM 2.0 kW 110.0 m Saturday Night Blues LISTEN ONLINE AT WGVU.ORG No Program Type or Undefined //WGVU 88.5 & W237CZ 95.3 [Grand Rapids, but oldies??] Whitehall also correlates with next single log across Lake MI in WI: Whitehall: 1253 km = 779 mi
95.5 at 1844, algo trying to edge in to local 95.7
97.3 at 1845, “97-3 The Game“: WRNW 97.3 MILWAUKEE WI HD SPORTS 97.3 THE GAME 15.5 kW 278.0 m Top 40 [sic] — 1127 km = 700 mi
96.3 at 1858, Bad Credit Blues ad; Ballard`s Plumbing and Heating in Petoskey; vs ACI from 96.1 OKC: WLXT 96.3 PETOSKEY MI ADULT CONTEMPORARY LITE 96.3 100.0 kW 299.0 m — 1472 km = 915 mi
94.5 at 1901, 3:01 timecheck, inviting R&R requests, and multi-station ID including WYPV Mackinaw City, too quick to copy all, “road-runner“ only station for R&R: WYPV relays:WQON 100.3 94.5 MACKINAW CITY MI CLASSIC ROCK Q 100 50.0 kW 110.0 m // WWMN 106.3 — 1514 km = 941 mi
97.5 at 1911, “Werewolf 97.5“, country. Turns out to be the Alva OK station not far from Enid to the NW, but a new name on me. See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KZLF “KZLF (“Werewolf 97.5 FM”) is a radio station broadcasting an adult hits music format licensed to Alva, Oklahoma, United States. The station is currently owned by Running Wolf Radio LLC, which purchased it from George S. Flinn in 2022.“ “Human all day – WOLF ALL NIGHT“ see https://werewolf975.com/ — ex-KPAK. WTFDA has new call but not new branding and non-silent format: KZLF 97.5 ALVA OK Silent CONTEMPORARY CHRISTIAN 97.5 THE QUAKE 50.0 kW 150.0 m 37-01-27 98-41-22 Silent 3/25/22 equip replacement — 70 km = 44 mi
96.7 at 1917, ad for waterfront property (877) 333-8830 or https://whiteoakcreekranchtx.com — TX??? I`ve been getting Michigan but those clues indeed lead to Texas, phone in Decatur which is NW of Fort Worth. From photos, the “water“ refers to ponds or lakes or creeks, not seashore! Surely not advertising waterfront property to Michiganders. Closest station to there is on N side of The Metroplex: KTCK-FM 96.7 FLOWER MOUND TX SPORTS RADIO 1310 & 96.7, THE TICKET 90.0 kW 621.0 m All Sports all the time – KTCK The Ticket – //KTCK 1310 — so this is fluke extended GW and that tall tower helps, not sporadic E. KTCK 1310 being successor to long-lamented WRR — 381 km = 236 mi
99.7 at 1927, “Hank FM“, another fringe Okie, but later see there is another same name in adjacent Kansas on same 99.7; beware, but only ours spells HANK backwards: Can anyone think of another station branding by spelling callsign backwards? FHGK sure won`t work: KNAH 99.7 MUSTANG OK COUNTRY HANK FM 47.0 kW 155.0 m – 112 km = 70 mi KGHF 99.7 BELLE PLAINE KS COUNTRY 99.7 HANK FM 50.0 kW 147.0 m unhrd
93.1 at 1930, “93 K-ROCK“, one last gasp of the Es from MI, and one Yooper I heard in previous opening: WIMK 93.1 IRON MOUNTAIN MI ROCK 93.1 K ROCK 100.0 kW 180.0 m — 1331 km = 827 mi
More sporadic E FM DX yet to be compiled: July 3 at 0129-0218 UT: AZ, CA; Mexico SONORA already done July 4 at 1634-1907+ UT: NV, UT, WY, ID, MT (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
UNIDENTIFIED. 13745-13755, July 4 at 0616, sure sounds like weak DRM noise but nothing in skeds to account for it. Maybe China or Russia? Romania is on 13750 at other times in AM (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
