Glenn Hauser logs July 23, 2022 – Es FM DX from NW

** CANADA. Note there are a few Canadian logs in my USA [and non] UT July 23 sporadic E FM DX report in chronological order

** OKLAHOMA. There are some incidental state logs mixed in with USA [and non] FM DX report in chronological order for July 23

** U S A [and non]. Another big sporadic E opening, Friday evening, UT Saturday July 23 from the NW centered on Montana; nexus for most paths is over S/E Wyoming. A few from Alberta. Also Idaho, as far as into Washington state. Would love to get some BC, possible from SE corner, but not this time. Just one bit of ND and of SD. A few lead to low-power translators. Quotes from WTFDA FM Database.

All u.o.s. on Nissan 2004 stock caradio parked in hot garage, with daily highs well 100+; 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 to compare with streams. All times UT in chronological order; including some Oklahoma spoilers. PTA = probable target area.

I am not counting stations, states or anything and not in competition. Rather, each DX log is a potential learning experience. Some are presumed or circumstantial, and any correxions or help with IDing are very welcome. Distances approx., city-of-license to Enid, not site to site, from distancefromto.net Showing distances does not necessarily imply more definite logs, but pertinent info.

92.3 at 0012, M&W plugging Disney movie, music over talk; 0015, “The Most Music and the Most Hits, 92-3 and 95-3, Star ## Radio“.

94.5 at 0013, country; 0016, text 548-82-88, “Today`s country, Chad? 94-5“ — must have been Max.

KNEH-LP 97.3 HELENA MT RELIGIOUS TEACHING 0.1 kW -71.0 m horiz only BELOW average terrain HELENA CMTY EDUCATIONAL ASSN — 1630 km = 1013 mi A stronger possibility might be this, just west of Spokane WA, except it`s on the KRTM network, evangelical but not overtly Catholic: KKRS relays:KRTM 88.1 97.3 DAVENPORT WA RELIGIOUS TEACHING 5.1 kW 220.0 m — 2081 mi = 1293 mi

93.5 at 0021 FRENCH Canadian chat briefly, likely CBC.

Ricky Leong, Calgary, tells me: “Hi Glenn, CJAY-FM actually uses its full call letters in its “marketing” name — CJAY92. CFEX-FM is on my very short list of go-to music stations on local FM — part of a smaller company and populated only with local hosts, which is nice. 73, Ricky“

[Here`s why no stations from Cd`A itself heard: 3 xltrs and one non, all very low power, 88, 95, 4 and 172 watts! Spokane covers from only 49 km = 30 miles away, with a dozen full-power FM stations. BTW there is an Idaho town called Hauser almost between them]
