Glenn Hauser logs July 3, 4, 8, 2022

** OKLAHOMA. K17JN-D, Enid`s only local TV signal, is OFF, July 8 at 1515 UT. Translator has been 3ABN and various related gospel-huxter subchannels, 2 or 3 of them audio only, not shown at rabbitears.info, including Radio 74 which is also on 89.3 from KIEL, Loyal OK. Lately 17 had been weak and somewhat not decoding, but not sure if them or my antenna at fault. Now we know. I am not eager to have them back, and shamefully, Enid deserves some local relays of secular OKC stations, notably OETA (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

WORLD OF RADIO 2146 monitoring: confirmed first broadcasts UT Friday July 8 at 0130 on WRMIs: 7730 via Maryland SDR and S9+10/20 direct; and 5850, S9+10/20 direct at 0145 but with storm crashes, somewhat undermodulated and suppressed. Clearer on 7730. As usual on System F, my last few words are overridden by Bishop Bob Biermann`s canned ID claiming to be on 9395! Also before 0159 I compared 5850 modulation to 5800 & 5950 which were definitely louder and clearer.

Also confirmed UT Friday July 8 at 0030 on WRMI 7780, JBA but slightly better into Missouri than Maryland SDR, both vs HSNL = high storm noise level. Unfortunately there are no Kiwis in Central America where 7780 is now aimed!

Also confirmed Friday July 8 at 1430 on WRMI 9955, S9/S3 direct with no jamming audible. Next: 1815 on IRRS as above (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Another log I overlooked in the sporadic E FM DX session UT July 3 from the Arizona/Sonora area:

92.1 at 0132, Mexican music, likely:
KCMT 92.1 GREEN VALLEY AZ Spanish REGIONAL MEXICAN LA CALIENTE 92.1 Y 95.7 50.0 kW 150.0 m
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Huge sporadic E FM DX opening on July 4: on caradio parked in hottening garage, vertical fender antenna only, no RDS, no even-frequency side-tuning, no internet access until later research. No recordings. All logged in real time by my own ears on own receiver, no remotes. All times UT in chronological order. PTA = probable target area. Distances are approx., city-of-license to Enid distancefromto.net, not site to site. I am not counting stations, states or anything and not in competition. Some logs are presumed, and any correxions or help with IDing are very welcome. Other standard provisos with my previous reports apply.

93.1 at 1634. CCI with Kansas, adstring, Goettl.com, Home Depot, baseball, basketball, tennis, COVID-19, Boston? mentioned. That strange name GOETTL ought to lead somewhere: yes, about air conditioning which I sure could use in my DX garage. Exists in Las Vegas NV, Phoenix & Tucson AZ, Austin & San Antonio TX, Simi Valley & Southern California = Corona HQ. No Goettls in the TX and AZ cities, but some nearby in CA, NW of Bakersfield:

1640 a lunch break, until 1725 when I see OK/NV FMDX path on DXMAP:

93.1 at 1730, CCI again to 93.1 KS, both music; by now PTA probably moved on from Vegas above to Utah as below; but on 93.1 only two translators, one musical in the SW corner: K226BQ relays:KCLS 101.5 93.1 ST. GEORGE UT ADULT CONTEMPORARY SUNNY 101.5 0.099 kW 0.0 m — 1400 km = 870 mi

99.1 at 1801, “La Perrona“, Spanish, noticias.com with Víctor González, “Minuto 60“, stingers, YL Spanish ad for Secret Dry Spray: KXTA-FM 99.1 GOODING ID Spanish REGIONAL MEXICAN LA PERRONA 99.1 64.0 kW 70.0 m. 1610 km = 1001 mi. Gooding is near Twin Falls. Strange name for a station, literally “big bitch“? Google “translates“ to same word in English, an anomaly already dealt with at Quora:

“Google translate says the word “Perrona” in Spanish means “Perrona” in English. Is that a correct translation or not?“

Luis Carlos Olmeda · Follow Knows Spanish4y replies: “Perrona in Spanish is an adjective that’s mostly used in the northern part of México, to refer that something is cool in a more unpolite way, like “f-ing awesome” (but not exactly, as “f-ing awesome” would be considered rude, and when it comes to be polite, the word “perron/perrona” -perrona would be the femenine case- doesn’t break the rule).

Now, to go more into specifics, the origin of that word has the prefix “perr-” which comes from the word “perro”, whose literal translation would be “dog”. Now, if you ask me why does it have that prefix, I wouldn’t know, and to be honest I don’t think that any Mexican could give you an explanation about it.

Hope this answers your question, as it’s the first one that I get to answer in Quora, and my English is far from being perfect. Saludos desde México!“

Heather Muñoz· 2y replies: “Reminds me of English slang: bitchin’ from the 1960s, meaning awesome, excellent, very cool“

100.7 at 1804, trace of Spanish, tones of an SHVA = Super-hype voice actor. Maybe this in the ID PTA: KPDA 100.7 MOUNTAIN HOME ID Spanish REGIONAL MEXICAN LA PONDEROSA [sic] 64.0 kW 711.0 m — 1693 km = 1052 mi. Note, unless a typo, Ponderosa as in pine tree, not Poderosa as in powerful. Ha, it is a typo, see: https://www.lapoderosaidaho.com/

88.1 and 91.5 at 1805, both have CCI to nearby stations

91.9 at 1807, Spanish song CCI; only SS in Idaho or neighboring states: KBWE 91.9 BURLEY ID Spanish REGIONAL MEXICAN DE VOZ LATINA [sic] 4.9 kWH 4.0 kWV 12.0 m — 1524 km = 947 mi, Burley just E of Twin Falls

92.1 at 1807, CCI talk and music; and the talker is mono: I don`t always pay attention to the $tereo icon but definitely not on here. That doesn`t help much to ID as the DB does not show which but of course it makes sense for talkers to turn off stereo for better coverage. A lot of stations leave $ on even when the programming is really mono. At 1816 M&W sports talk about the Royals — oops, no it`s about the Brits; YL guest is Alex Hogan. Only full-power in ID: KIDG relays:KID-590 92.1 POCATELLO ID NEWS/TALK NEWS RADIO 590 12.0 kW 301.0 m — 1437 km = 893 mi

92.3 at 1808, Gala Showrooom at Cactus Pete`s in Jackpot, Nevada. That little town is right on the ID border south of Twin Falls, obviously established for Idahoan gambling addicts where it`s legal, but no 92.3 right there. Must be magnetizing via this: KIZN 92.3 BOISE ID COUNTRY KISSIN’ 92 48.0 kW 828.0 m as clearly in next minutes: 1809 Idaho Central algo in Caldwell; 1810 Green`sHeating.com in Nampa — 1750 km = 1087 mi

92.7 at 1811, rap; at 1819 ad for lawn & garden equipment. Could be two different stations. Just had Boise on 92.3, but two others in southern ID. Hazelton is near Twin Falls: among:
KTPZ 92.7 HAZELTON ID CONTEMPORARY HIT RADIO MUSIC MONSTER 92.7 4.9 kW 226.0 m — 1553 km = 965 mi

93.5 at 1812, Tire Den ad in Rock Springs WY, weather forecast lows and highs, 57/90/84, “Real Country 93-5 FM, KREO Radio“: KREO 93.5 JAMES TOWN WY COUNTRY REAL COUNTRY RADIO 8.0 kW 323.0 m 41-29-50 109-20-36 — James Town is just west of Rock Springs in SW WY — 1157 km = 719 mi

94.5 at 1814, “Kay-skee“, where no algorithms choose the music!: KSKI-FM 94.5 SUN VALLEY ID ROCK SO[U]THERN IDAHO`S ALTERNATIVE KSKI 94.5 2.5 kW 583.0 m — 1616 km = 1004 mi

94.3 at 1820, jazz song, scat, “All-righty, OK“, love song with a long instrumental cadenza; 1824 quiet segué to West Side Story`s “Puerto Rico —“ which morphs into “I Want To Be In America“. There are some split-second dropouts in the music. 1830, “America, the Beautiful“ soul version; 1832 segué to “Star Spangled Banner“ jazz version. Searching the DB on formats jazz, soul, urban: no hits in the 4-state area, but this fits best despite being LDS, near Idaho Falls, presumably non-commercial and this is Independence Day!:

KBYI 94.3 REXBURG ID USA NEWS/CLASSICAL BYU – IDAHO RADIO 99.0 kW 211.0 m Be Informed. Be Inspired. BYU Idaho Classical — 1440 km = 895 mi. I look at its program schedule which is mostly classical, some NPR talk. A typical Monday during the local noon hour:

“Weekdays on BYU-Idaho Radio, 12 Noon: WEEKDAYS is the best in music and great local interviews. With everything from Broadway, to Disney, to *jazz and swing*, there’s something for everyone! After the music, BYU-Idaho’s newsroom brings you a local and exclusive interview to help keep you in the loop. Refresh your workdays with music and interviews from Weekdays! The program is hosted by BYU-Idaho Radio students and staff“

96.7 at 1828, Spanish, ranchera, frenetic ad, promo, fadeout. Sure is a lot of Spanish in Aidajó! Here`s one in the PTA, and there is no SS of any power in the other four states: K244BJ relays:KIGO-1420 96.7 IDAHO FALLS ID Spanish REGIONAL MEXICAN RADIO FIESTA 0.25 kW 123 mH only — 1439 km = 894 mi

94.1 at 1832, (406) area code = Montana, Starling`s Event Center, classic rock. Searching finds lots of Sterlings, not in PTA. There is a Starling somewhere in AC (405) = Oklahoma. The two MT stations don`t get a correlation for either spelling, but surely one of them: KOPR 94.1 BUTTE MT ADULT HITS KOPR 94.1 FM 58.0 kW 566.0 m — distancefromto “thinx“ Butte MT is in central Colorado! Unless Montana be outspelt: 1623 km = 1008 mi; OR KRKX 94.1 BILLINGS MT COUNTRY 94.1 K-SKY 100.0 kW 180.0 m — 1370 km = 851 mi

Spent a lot of time tracing names and phone numbers without definite results but probably not local anyway. Anyway: KCWB 92.1 BYRON WY COUNTRY THE COWBOY 92.1 100.0 kW 575.0 m — distancefromto “thinx“ Byron WY is on Long Island NY! Spell out Wyoming: 1294 km = 804 mi — near MT border, NE of Cody

91.9 at 1843, anti-fascist folk song, Woody Guthrie; and “Blowin` in the Wind“; 1846 speech about America in 1956y; 1848 fades. 1851 YL discussing the songs but with gospel huxter QRM. There are lots of 91.9 translators in MT but two full powers, this most likely: KGLT 91.9 BOZEMAN MT VARIETY ALTERNATIVE PUBLIC RADIO IN SOUTHWEST MONTANA 12.0 kW 262.0 m MONTANA UNIVERSITY SYSTEM — 1508 km = 937 mi while the other one, also at 1901 with Family Radio ID is: KFRW 91.9 GREAT FALLS MT RELIGIOUS TEACHING FAMILY RADIO 50.0 kW 142.0 m — 1657 km = 1029 mi

93.1 at 1849, ads for Hélena Orthopedic Clinic and Hélena Hardwood Floors, but it`s only a translator while a full power is in Sidney not at all near Hélena: K226BI relays:KKGR-680 93.1 HELENA MT CLASSIC HITS HELENA`S GREATEST HITS 0.25 kWV only 212.7 mV only — distancefromto “thinx“ Helena MT is in southern Illinois! spell out Montana: 1630 km = 1013 mi KGCX 93.1 SIDNEY MT CLASSIC ROCK EAGLE 93 100.0 kW 110.1 m — distancefromto “thinx“ Sidney MT is in Arkansas!

92.7 at 1852, SelectQuote ad, 1-800-940-6161, and blinds.com for windows, fade; presumably not local

Still going at 1907 but after 2.5 hours of intensive DXing in the uncomfortable car seat getting hotter, I break for R&R and a late lunch. Resuming at 1946-1956, no DX. I wonder if the opening moved on to Saskatchewan?

BTW, the mass shooting in Highland Park IL had just happened, but in all my tuning of DX and past local FM stations I never heard a word about it, while it was wall-to-wall on the cable TV news networx. Commercial radio is a totally different world!

As I finally complete this compilation July 8 at 1725 UT there is a 100-MHz MUF peak on DXMAP, over SE OK/NE TX, which mean all the FM DX is skipping right over us; you`re welcome (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6070-6090, July 8 at 0626, DRM noise, I think, with some pulsing also, and now 20 kHz wide instead of 10! What is this? By this late hour I am about to doze and offline. Please try to ID with KiwiSDR DRM tuning if not your own (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 1733 UT July 8
