Glenn Hauser logs July 3-4-5, 2022

** CUBA. 13651 & 13749 approx., July 5 at 1441, S5/S7 spurblobs extremely distorted with no readable audio, JBM even in FM mode, but telltale F# tone. So plus/minus ~49 kHz out of 13700 AM transmitter. Also weaker at X2 = ~98 kHz offsets, 13798 and obscured by 13605 Martí, on 13602. Also X3 = ~147 kHz, JB detectable circa 13554 and maybe 13846 vs 13845 WWCR. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 99.5, July 4 at 1739 UT as a big sporadic E opening is underway, currently from Utah but not yet compiled, something here instead of usual fringe KXBL Henryetta — Waynoka in western OK mentioned and then, and then — “1430 AM, KALV“. That`s in nearby Alva which I can barely hear on 1430 with direxional pattern and/or QRP. This is NOT in the WTFDA FM database: must be a new? translator, as I do find it at FCC FM Query:

“K258GZ OK ALVA USA FX LIC Licensee: REMEMBER RADIO, LLC Service Designation: FX Translator Station (retransmits signal, different channel than main station) [but NOT specified KALV or any] Channel/Class: 258D Frequency: 99.5 MHz Licensed File No.: 0000106074 Facility ID number: 203242 LMS Application ID: 25076f917036859c017045c234d2086b (Assigned numerical ID: 0000106074) Licensed date: 2020-03-11“

Well, that was over a biyear ago; if it`s really been on, had not noticed it before. Translators are often owned by another party as a station makes a relay deal, but KALV 1430 also belongs to Remember Radio (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR) More OK under USA

** U S A. Sporadic E FM DX opening UT Sunday July 3 from 0129 to 0217; a few Mexicans at first already reported.

88.1 at 0133, Spanish music, tropical, “carnaval“ repeatedly refrained. But segué to English song, “River So Wide“. Despite Es in progress from AZ/Sonora border area, suspect this be KWOU Woodward OK relaying KGOU Norman, during `Global Sojourn` show at 8-10 pm CDT Saturdays, including a playlist which may be what I heard but not obvious hits: 8:28 PM TITLE: Bomba Swing COMPOSER: W.Cepeda ARTIST: William Cepeda & Afrorican Jazz ALBUM: My Roots & Beyond 8:35 PM TITLE: River Jordan COMPOSER: n/a ARTIST: Peter Broggs ALBUM: Progressive Youth 88.1 at 0207 indeed “Global Sojourn“ but with DX CCI in Spanish

100.3 at 0139, rock YL DJ, “on the beat“. If a station slogan, the only two are nowhere near the PTA: WMVN 100.3 SYLVAN BEACH NY HD RHYTHMIC CHR THE BEAT 6.0 kW 100.0 m KATZ-FM 100.3 BRIDGETON MO HD URBAN CONTEMPORARY 100.3 THE BEAT 17.0 kW 120.0 m [near St Louis like 1600 KATZ]

More likely in the AZ/CA border PTA: KJMB-FM 100.3 BLYTHE CA ADULT CONTEMPORARY KJMB FM 100.3 36.0 kWH only 17.0 m horizontal only I do not see Beat mentioned on website but does not rule it out: https://kjmbradio.com/ — 1552 km = 964 mi One thing I resist for lack of time is monitoring streams of stations later for something matchable.

100.7 at 0140, Catholic talk in English about Loreto. Nothing fits in AZ or NV, and the closest in CA is rather far-fetched: K264CK relays:KHOT-1250 100.7 FRESNO CA RELIGIOUS TEACHING IMMACULATE HEART RADIO 0.25 kW — 1953 km = 1213 mi; and it takes some doing to audiblize against adjacent local 100.9 KGWA translator. Faked out by something nearby in KS or OK? No Catholix listed. Possibly religious but not exclusively Catholic tho seems unlikely, such as KWRD Highland Village TX north side of The Metroplex, a Salem outlet so presumably evangelical/Protestant. 375 km = 233 mi. 94.9 log below points to north TX.

102.1 at 0140, soft rock and talk about music, or CCI

94.9 at 0146, Eyemart Express ad, fade. I figure it`s a national ad but search leads right back to several locations in OK, and a few in adjacent states KS, MO, TX. OK has only two unlikely translators; KS has two distant full-powers in Concordia, Shawnee, but nearest is: KIND 94.9 ELK CITY KS HOT AC 6.0 kW 82.9 m — not the Elk City in OK! This is just west of Independence in the SE, not very close to Wichita where Eyemart has its only two KS stores. Nothing near Joplin MO. However, both TX locations hit close geographical correlations: Eyemart Wichita Falls, near Electra: KOLI 94.9 ELECTRA TX COUNTRY 94.9 THE OUTLAW 50.0 kW 150.0 m — 279 km = 174 mi and Eyemart Flower Mound, N side of The Metroplex, near Arlington: KLTY 94.9 ARLINGTON TX HD CONTEMPORARY CHRISTIAN 94.9 KLTY 99.0 kW 508.0 m — 413 km = 256 mi; so apparently extended groundwave on a channel normally vacant here, not even the KOSU Ponca City translator

93.5 at 0158 ads, CCI with KS, tostadas, González Meat Market in Lancaster, State Farm. 0200 ID for Rosamond-Lancaster-Palmdale, so: KQAV 93.5 ROSAMOND CA CLASSIC HIP-HOP OLD SCHOOL 93.5 6.0 kW 27.0 m //KOSS 1380/K272FI 102.3/K296GX 107.1 — 1841 km = 1144 mi

94.3 at 0209, “The Duck, giveaways all summer“; CCI from song mixing Spanish and English; 0212 “hits back to back 24 hours a day, 94-3“; 0217 rock, about a sex pill [so not Bott!], tickets to Six Flags [over something? not TX. Probably Magic Mountain as in L.A.], “right here on The Duck, 94 days of summer“ and end of opening: KDUC 94.3 BARSTOW CA RHYTHMIC CHR THE DUCK 4.6 kW 239.0 m — 1735 km = 1078 mi (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 2124 UT July 5
