Editors Corner:


ABDX membership is 230 members and still growing! We welcome the latest subscribers to the ABDX mail list and look forward to seing your logs. I thank all of you for being members of ABDX. You have made the group what it is today.


When the year 2009 began there were 202 of us. Sadly Chris Taylor, Harry Helms and Paul LaFrieniere became SK over the past year.


We got excellent logs for shortwave. People are still listening. We got some nice FM logs as well. Medium wave logs are always in abundance. At ABDX we love your logs and for each log, you get an extra year of membership. J


Testing, Testing… We have an announcement of a DX test upcoming from WGGH!


Its time for High School basketball and just like football the “FCC STA” for small towns who leave the station on high power and day pattern to get the signal for their HS BKB team to be heard far and wide. For sports DXers, there is NFL playoffs, Hockey, BKB from pro and college are all over the air.


If you have something to sell and want to have it on the ABDX list and have it in the ABDX Journal, please join the ABDX list and you can post it there and I will also make sure it gets in the Journal.

** U S A. *** NEWSFLASH - WAMC's Mt. Greylock transmitter is is back on the air. WAMC FM 90.3: Was off the air for several hours on 11/30/09 due to a scheduled power outage by National Grid. Power has been restored and so has our signal. Thanks for your patience.

Overnight in the wee hours of 12/03/09 (Thursday), a friend of mine on the way home from work, caught WRUN 1150 on the air again with frequent "WRUN, Utica" IDs and what amounted to automated light adult contemporary and instrumentals.

The new owner is DIGITAL RADIO BROADCASTING, INC. There is a CP to change WRUN from 5kw day 3 tower DA, 1kw night 5 tower DA to 4kw day 4 tower DA, 370 watts night 4 tower DA and change the city of license from Utica NY to nearby New Hartford NY.  The COL change is a result of the change in power and pattern as the present city grade signal will no longer fall over the city of Utica.

WRUN-AM 1150 isn't gone, it is just going through some major changes.

12/19

WIZR-930 Johnstown NY still on and has been on day power at night all week.

Playing a mix of Hot AC and Christmas music. Station is IDing as 'B 95 point 5.

WIZR-AM 930 has been dark and is suspected to be on only to preserve the license.

Catch it while you can.

Car Radio


12/24

As I was on my way to a basketball game Friday afternoon around sunset, tuning around the dial, I got a surge from a country music station on 1510 briefly atop dominant WLAC, just in time to hear it identify as "All New Classic Country 1190, (and call sounded like KGTC)." Not sure how I could have heard QQ as GT, but I really wasn't paying that much attention.

 John Tudenham relays a note from Eric Buenaman that the 1190 St. Louis area station has changed CoL to University City, and call to KQQZ, relaying WQQW, Highland IL on 1510, which also plans a move closer to St. Louis. Annct I heard indicates that WQQW relays KQQZ.

Car radio


12/11

I have done very little DXing lately, because I am so busy with work, and even DXing from the car is tough due to really bad tire static. 

This morning I figured I'd give it another try on my way in to work, since it was raining (which kills the tire static) and since we're in those short days that seem to produce nice morning conditions. 

I was correct.  KOMO-1000 (a reliable nighttime regular) was in fairly strong, and on 1350, KTIK was in nicely at first, but later started mixing with KSRO, which is usually dominant.  I don't get to hear KTIK very often so that was a nice treat, especially considering that it was after 8:00 AM here, well after sunrise. 

Juan Gualda – Ft. Pierce, FL

Sangean PR-D5


12/24

The Dog had us up early this morning, and while laying in bed, with the Sangean PR-D5 sitting on 780, suddenly the frequency went quiet, and then “God Save The Queen” was playing like a local, then a sign on announcement, then after a few prayers on to Christmas music. They were in strong for at least 10 minutes, until WBBM came back and took over. Sign on was at 4:30 am, and that was interesting, but anyway, it woke me up, for sure. 

This is a new one for me. It’s not surprising that I eventually heard them, but how strong it was, made me wake up from my semi-sleepy state. I mean, the frequency got almost silent when they flipped the carrier on. 

I then spun the dial, and heard Puerto Rico, Venezuela, and then went to 740, where Toronto was like a local too. They are not a regular, and even more rare, that they are strong here. 

For sure, a weird, but Interesting morning. Goes to show, you never know what you can hear until you try…..


Bruce Winkleman – Tulsa, OK

Drake R-8 and Quantum Phaser


On a frigid morning drive, found my local 1430-KTBZ off at 0810-0830CST 10DEC09. KRGI Grand Island, NE dominating most of the drive with weather, local ads and comments about community events. During fades, heard a couple of mentions of area code 713 so presume this was KCOH Houston, TX. Not sure when KTBZ went off the air or came back on but

they were back on this evening on the drive home around 1745CST.

Not really a surprise but found a strong OC on 1120 on the drive home as well with only traces of KMOX underneath. Almost surely KEOR.

12/3

If anyone is listening on 1680 right now -- 0120 UTC -- WOKB is playing Carib-Reggae music w/F ann w/lively Carib-English accent.

12/5

The Florida Panhandle is some 400 miles from me, and in a different time zone, so I was doubly lucky tonight.

2352Z 1370 WCOA Pensacola FL Local ads with local area code phone nrs then....

2357Z 1370 KFRO Lakeview TX with ID, then back into the mud.

12/7

0140Z 1140 WKCM, Hawesville, KY. Faint C&W music, strong enough at 0140Z to copy ID. New.

12/8

0725Z 1170 "Oldies 1170 and 104.9." I assume the FM refers to KBOB. 60s and 70s Oldies format.


Bogdan Chiochiu – Montreal, OC

Sanyo MCD S830


1310 WORC Worchester, MA "Power Trece-Diez" DEC 12 1940 EST - man announcing in Spanish they have the best salsa, merengue, bachata, raeggetón and Freestyle classics (Latin Freestyle Dance Music - Bogdan) of all the time and to come up and party at a nightclub playing the same type of music as on "Power Trece-Diez". Heard while driving toward a help center for becoming a radio jock and overpowering semi-local CIWW in Ottawa, ON. I think CIWW is using their required nighttime pattern, while WORC Massachussets is sending out their 1 kW daytime power instead of their nighttime power which is a lot LESS than 1 kW and which would sent less signal our way and less signal in the way of CIWW too ! (BC-QC) 

1340 unID "WSPJ Storm Center forecast" DEC 21 1540 EST - Heard several call IDs as "WSPJ", but Google makes something on 1400 as WSPG or WSPJ and nothing on 1340. QRMing semi-local WIRY in Plattsburg, NY as the local "graveyarders" are starting to make this frequency a real mess. Any ideas ? I think the minute I will have an AM Stereo receiver I will give North American short-haul domestic DX more attention, as I'm YET to hear FOR REAL something in Stereo on a broadcast band other than the FM one (ultrashortwaves in Romanian or "unde ultrascurte") ! WSTJ St. Johnsbury, VT ? Where are they located ? Are they further than Newport, Burlington or Montpellier for a real not-that-short-skip DX challenge ? Ore are they another run of the mil catche ? Maybe they are in the Rutland area which would be NICE ! (BC-QC)

 1340 WSTJ St. Johnsbury, VT DEC 21 1553 EST - finally IDed. NEW ! Wow ! It's been a long time since I gave up on North American short-skip DXing, but hearing endlessly the same TAs and Latins is certainly making me want to try a new kind of DX, so here it is. This is perphaps my closest unheard ! (BC-QC)

612 MOROCCO   RTM, Sebaa-Aioun DEC 19 2302 (tentative) - Tentatively them with a fair-strength TA het on the high-side of megapest CHNC-610. Too much CHNC splatter to get ANY audio. Unfortunatly, they don't seem to know when to unplug their mediumwave transmitter in order to allow adjacent channel Morocco to get through ! That being said, the rising solar activity probably won't allow our dearly ionosphere to skip through the ever-normal "mid-winter anomaly" either which harms east-west Trans-Atlantic paths. (Chiochiu-QC)

550 VENEZUELA   YVKE, Mundial, Caracas, DF DEC 20 0632 UTC - Px of trad YV mx w/ W host that announced an UN SOLO PUEBLO song was about to begin which is exactly what happened. Played an even mixture of joropos and gaitas. Very good at times, but with flutter due to slightly weaker domestics coming in behind at the same time (mostly WEVD and the Rhode Island Disney station). SINPO 43523-2. (Chiochiu-QC)

 555 ST KITTS   ZIZ, Basseterre DEC 21 0856 UTC - Dude taking call from his listeners and talking with them. He talked with one of them about global cooling saying the temperatures will drop from 20 to 17, to 15, to 10 and then to 7 ! Very interesting chatter... The break in the chatter was used to insert some gospel and calypso mx selections, included a Xmas-related calypso. Huge signal, mostly in, with a nice and clean good signal strength. SINPO 44534 (Chiochiu-QC) 

570 CUBA   CMDC, Radio Reloj, Pilón DEC 20 0502 UTC - clock ticks behind megapest WSYR and semi-regular WMCA. I didn't had the patience enough to wait for the RR morse code IDs though. SINPO 21522. Happily, I found a way to tune the PK passive AM loop in order to totally avoid the computer growl hammering the low-side of this channel. (Chiochiu-580 PUERTO RICO   WKAQ, Radio Reloj, San Juan DEC 20 0503 UTC - a completly different format than the news/time station logged the previous minute on the previous channel. Heard with health issues px, about food and alcohol. Very strong, atop domestics. SINPO 44544. Semi-regular here. (Chiochiu-QC) 

600 CUBA   CMKV, Radio Rebelde, Urbano Norrís DEC 20 0511 - Cuban salsa dura slightly over WICC in CKAT (North Bay, ON) null, but mostly inaudible with WICC (Bridgeport, CT) overwhelmingly strong...and WICC is officially in C-Quam stereo, so since it is often stronger than co-channel Radio Rebelde, its C-quam signal might reach the Montreal area, who knows ? (Chiochiu-QC) 

610 CUBA   CMAN, Radio Rebelde, Bahía Honda DEC 20 0511 - Cuban salsa music under WIP in null of megapest CHNC New Carlisle, Gaspésie, QC. Rare ! (Chiochiu-QC) 

750 VENEZUELA   YVKS, RCR, Caracas, DF DEC 21 2320 - Ad for a restaurant with chicken meals. Huge / very good, totally killing WSB Atlanta also on 750 AM ! (Chiochiu-QC)  

760 COLOMBIA   HJAJ, RCN Cadena Basíca, Barranquilla DEC 20 0248 UTC - Cumbia music sample, followed by a vallenato one, then the follow-up of an interview in Spanish. Good signal, but in a tricky null of megapest WJR in Detroit, MI and a slight amount of splatter from huge WABC-NYC on 770, but more out than in. SINPO 43522 (Chiochiu-QC) 

780 VENEZUELA   YVNM, Radio Coro, Coro, Falcón DEC 20 0628 UTC - an upbeat mainstream merengue song followed by station promos and a brand new canned ID. Fair with some local splatter from overmodulated CJAD-800. WABC-770 was splattering less than usual, even though it was local-like, maybe the structure of its signal was different. SINPO 34322. DEC 21 2249 UTC - fading up with transmitter-site sunset with canned ID "...señal de Radio Coro" then "El Burrito Sabanero" by Hugo Lopez which is a wild blend of tropical cumbia and traditionnal música llanera I've downloaded several years ago. Hugo Lopez was a Venezuelan harp genius, having learned perfectly to play that instrument the day he received it as a gift ! SINPO 33221, but my earliest reception of them ! One of my dreams and favorite hobbies-whithin-a-hobby is/was to hear early fade-ins of Latins or Caribbean signals in the 4PM to 6PM time slot during the winter when sunset is slightly BEFORE 6PM in order to enjoy some highly intriguing challenge ! http://200.6.157.20:8034/listen.pls isn't working right now, so mediumwave DXing is the only way to get in touch with this Venezuelan station. (Chiochiu-QC) 

910 VENEZUELA   YVRQ, RQ-910, Caracas, DF DEC 20 0644 UTC - another one playing música llanera and something I haven't listened to in a big while. Poor, but nice signal, nevertheless and quite clear... SINPO 25532. The Connecticut tropical CHR Spanish station "La Mega" seems to have learned to drop power at sunset, as required by the Federal Communications Commission. No sign of Cuba either, which is dominant on 910 usually (playing cha-cha-cha when propagating here) when and while WTAG La Mega respects his nighttime power pattern. (Chiochiu-QC)

Phil Rafuse – Stratford, PEI

R-390A LFE M601C active omni whip with ground addition – As Listed


12/7

A quick spin around the lower end of the MW dial here is showing up a lot of LA [Latin American] activity.  PEI's favourite LA, YVKS Caracas Venezuela, is pounding in.  710 WOR is being trashed mightly by Cuba.  And, who shot WJR?  760 is being dominated by WJR's LA rival for the frequency.

12/17

I sprayed the pots on the Quantum Phaser [QP] with Caig Cailube [now called DeOxit fader lube, IIRC].  Now the QP works great!

I just point the Wellbrook 1530 at New York City / Boston, then adjust the QP antenna pots by flicking back and forth between the Wellbrook and the LF Engineering M601C to approximately balance the levels.  Then, put the antenna to A+B, twiddle the phaser control until 1130 WBBR almost dissapears, then wait for 1130 CKWX to pop up.  And, pop up it did, informing me that flurries are falling in Vancouver BC. I tried it on 920 and was greeted with armchair copy not of pesky CKNX Wingham ON but CFRY in MB.  Right now, I'm getting armchair copy of 960 CFAC Calgary AB, listening to the Flames v. the Kings broadcast live from the Saddledome. 1010 CFRB sounds like a local.  WINS?  WINS who?  It is gone.

Earlier I was listening to Feliz Navidad on 1134 Croatia.  All the usual TAs were hammering in, until I flipped to either antenna solo, whereby only some were present and weak.

The combo of a good active whip with the Wellbrook is most impressive.

When I wear out the pots on the QP, I think I'll replace them with really good conductive plastic pots.  The QP is working so well with this antenna combo that there really is no need to upgrade.  

Now, must try for a Sakatchewan station - to work all 9 AM provinces in Canada.

So folks, if you have a QP rattling around, give it a spruce up and try it again.

I got SK!

980 CJME Regina with an ID, then into the news.  First time I've logged them at my QTH [I did get them at Priest Pond 2009 with the DGS EWE.]

Its a sweep of all 9 AM Provinces :)

12/28

11:50 AST / 0350 UTC I'm getting rolling pop music on 531 KHz, quite clear and steady.  Tough keeping 530 Cuba at bay.  To keep Cuba out of the mix, I'm using the Icom R-75 on 2.4 KHz bw USB, the R-390A on 2.2 KC bw but tuned to 532 and the Palstar R30A on 2.5 KHz bw tuned to 532 KHz.

11:55 AST / 0355 UTC I'm also getting pop music [for example Boney M Christmas music] on 207 KHz LSB on the R-75 while the two Collins filter receivers hold down the fort on 531 [actually, 532 as noted above].  Its tough slugging keeping the beacons at bay, but the ANF on the R-75 is a big help.

Just to be clear, the music is different on 207 and 531.  Similar format though - rolling pop music.

CJEU [1670] in Gatineau QC (aka 'Radio Enfant') has finally made an appearance on 1670 today, testing with continuous music (mostly in French, and mostly sung by kids).  No IDs or announcements heard so far.  Monster signal here (transmitter is only 11 miles away, sigh) -

a new one for the log that I'd rather not have!

W. G. Hauser – Enid, OK

DX-398


** OKLAHOMA. 1210, KGYN Guymon signal is still seldom at its `normal` good daytime groundwave level. Bandscan Dec 8 at a hotspot in western Enid on caradio at 1854 UT did find it audible but poorly with country music.

1120, KEOR, Catoosa-Tulsa-Sperry, Dec 8 at 1855 UT with ID only for the station it is relaying, ``KJMU, Hot 1340 The Groove`` and PSA for The 100 Black Men of Tulsa, an interventionist group. Googling that, I quickly see that there are 100 Black Men chapters all over the US and some abroad: http://www.100blackmen.org/ This early, no skywave QRM from KMOX audible.

1040, on my caradio at 1857 UT Dec 8 I am getting a clear weak signal from local KGWA-960, instead of IA or TX, with local ads matching during national talkshow. Not sure if a genuine spur. I was not parked in the immediate vicinity of the transmitter site. Nor on the 10-kHz step tuner only, can I be sure it was exactly on 1040, but sounded so (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. On caradio at 2045 Dec 10 noticed steady EWTN Catholic programming on 1090, a frequency normally vacant of groundwave here daytimes, so skywave was kicking in. Call-in with an authority cluing in listeners about doctrine; can they take the Old Testament seriously as inerrant?

By 2053 I had switched to the DX-398 and it was looping NE/SW as a SAH of about 3 Hz was developing, likely caused by Little Rock a hefty acute angle apart. And the Catholic station was running about one second behind WEWN on 15610. During rest of hour, was sometimes // and sometimes not, as it must have been cutting in and out of network feed. 2100 ID as ``KESX, the station that cares``, and shortly The Lord`s Prayer.

So it`s the 3.4 kW daytimer in Excelsior Springs MO, near Kansas City, with a direxional pattern, surprise, surprise, toward the big city, main lobe about 248 degrees, so also favoring Enid (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Another quick MW bandscan on the caradio at a hotspot in western Enid the afternoon of Dec 14, times UT!

1200, at 2137, skywave in, something in Spanish atop WOAI, various ads for juguetes, etc., causing slow SAH with WOAI; later mentioned ``Chicago informa … 1,200 AM``. So it`s WRTO, 10 kW, ``La Tremenda`` per NRC AM Log 2009-2010. Strangely enough, per NRC pattern book, its daytime design has a null to the SE, but plenty of signal to the SW. WOAI soon faded up overtaking it, but 1200 is hardly a ``clear channel`` any more!

540, at 2144, KWMT Ft Dodge IA, groundwave, with two or three IDs in passing during info about local events. Usually it`s a mix with KDFT, but no sign of Spanish this time; the latter off the air? If it stays off I may finally have a chance of inpulling KNMX by daytime groundwave, which ought to be possible here.

570, at 2147, usual mix of KLIF with groundwave from WNAX SD, way under but audible with SAH of about 3.5 Hz. Someone was wondering whether WNAX was running usual spex; seems so to me (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Afternoon DXing from caradio, nondirexional whip:

1660, no sign of KXTR Kansas City, but a weak 3-way SAH could be detected at 2015 UT Dec 18, presumably traces of the TX, ND and MI stations. KXTR website has referred to being off the air periodically for antenna work. It currently shows this, now outdated, so they are still not finished:

``KXTR WILL NOT BE BROADCASTING ON 1660AM FROM 8AM TO 6PM MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY UNTIL DECEMBER 14 SO THE FINAL PHASE OF WORK ON OUR TOWER CAN BE COMPLETED. KXTR WILL CONTINUE TO STREAM AT WWW.KXTR.COM AND BROADCAST IN HD AT 98.1 FM HD2. THANKS FOR YOUR PATIENCE!``

1250 Spanish and 1090 EWTN from the KC area were in well, so skywave was obviously in play, and KXTR should have been easily audible if on. I hope the `work` does not include diminishing the skywave component.

Talk on 1670 also in, no doubt WTDY Madison WI (I had also heard it Dec 17 around 1800, close to low noon at 1832 UT = 1200 LMT); and no sign of CJEU Gatineau QC.

1210, KGYN Guymon OK still ailing with very weak groundwave signal, but barely audible ``US Country`` slogan at 2020 Dec 18, SAH between two other very weak signals.

1560, at 2015 UT, our nearest groundwave station on that frequency, KOCY, 1 kW Del City (why license to this SE suburb of OKC? It was originally much further off to the SW in Chickasha as KWCO, which stood for Women`s College of Oklahoma; KOCY were heritage calls which should have stayed on 1340); now 1560 is Radio Disney, already getting heavy QRM from a skywave pileup, mainly something with a talk show. And one of them far enough off-frequency to cause a rumbling audible het (such as 30-40 Hz, maybe).

Next check at 2035 it was even worse; besides the rumbling AH, there were also a SAH of 6 Hz, and another faster SAH. So that`s at least three or four stations. At 2100, Houston-orientated sportstalk on top, obviously 50 kW KGOW ``Bellaire`` TX, but no legal ID to be heard. 2101 played PSA for http://texasflu.com and then at 2102 ID only as ``1560 The Game, happily filling the holes in your life``, which I must say is a distinctive slogan altho it leaves me cold; what holes? Is that any way to talk to a proud listener? Probably played then, since a golf ad was to follow, ha2.

Rather tight major daytime lobe is at 14 degrees, and one of the nulls at 330 degrees; we are roughly halfway between them, meaning considerably off the boresight.

http://www.fcc.gov/ftp/Bureaus/MB/Databases/AM_DA_patterns/1222668-101220.pdf

This is the same station that got out widely a few months ago during a hurricane/flood emergency when running day facilities at night, and relaying news from a local TV station, KPRC `2`, as I recall. Low sun now means it gets plenty of daytime skywave propagation.

1370, rechecked again in the afternoons of Dec 17, and 18, still no groundwave signal from KGNO Dodge City KS, which used to be a daytime fringe regular here. It`s still on the books as non-direxional, day power 5 kW, an heritage station, but does it exist any more? It`s now part of a 20-station group all over Kansas, so just another cog. I should phone and inquire, 620-225-8080.

Coverage map at http://www.rockingmradio.com/kgno.htm shows the ``0.5 mV/m`` contour extending into OK no further than Alva in Woods county, but it should be audible here over the Ogalalla aquifer with much less signal than that. Er, make that microvolts per meter; what difference does a little factor of three orders of magnitude make? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. X-band scan in the caradio afternoon of Dec 19; it`s harder and harder to find a quiet spot in Enid covering the entire MW band, with all the Xmasdex, powerline and trafficlites, but at 2052 UT I was getting a clear steady signal on 1680 with ad for a jeweler in Vicksburg MS, huh? On 1680? Then another ad for In Style hairdresser mentioning the 318 area code, which is northern LA. At 2053 ``The music you grew up with, Old School 1680 AM``. Has to be KRJO Monroe LA, which NRC AM Log 2009 says is // 1360 KBYO Tallulah LA, but it was silent as of 6/2009 and not cross-referenced to 1680. Address is same for both in Monroe, but different formats.

Tallulah is a lot closer to Vicksburg eastward on I-20. (I made the mistake of driving across LA on I-20 years ago; did they ever get it smoothed out?). Since the slogan heard on 1680 mentioned 1680, yet the 1360 transmitter would (better) serve Vicksburg, is that on the air or not, and which one is the primary station?

FCC shows KBYO with a different licensee, ``FIRST UNITED METHODIST CHURCH OF TULLULAH, LOUISIANA`` altho the town is spelt Tallulah. It`s not on the 12/1/09 edition of silent AM stations:

http://www.fcc.gov/mb/audio/status/silentAM.html

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1610, the only `open` MW channel in the USA, often has an annoyingly high noise level. This is partly due to the lack of any strong signals to muscle aside splash from 1600 and 1620, as well as whatever local noise sources may be radiating. Forget Anguilla, Mexico, or Canada. At 0733 Dec 21, I decided it was IBOC noise since that was also audible on 1590 despite the pileup of AM signals there. And what was on 1600? Black gospel music, no doubt the dominatrix KATZ St Louis, which runs 5 kW day and night. And yes, NRC AM Log 2009 does show it running IBOC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 1120, KEOR, was licensed to Catoosa, NE of Tulsa, but as I found when I tracked down the transmitter site, it`s really in Sperry, N of Tulsa. Yet I was surprised to hear an ID Dec 22 at 2012 as ``Old School R&B, KEOR, Sperry-Tulsa, and Hot 1340, KJMU Sand Springs``. Anyhow it seems to be on the air every day now (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1660, KXTR Kansas City back on the air with classical music, Dec 23 at 2039 UT check, some QRM from other skywave stations. Need more checking to decide whether KXTR`s skywave signal has been reduced.

1680, KRJO, seems a regular afternoons here with early skywave kick-in, such as Dec 23 around 2200 UT with ``Old School`` slogan IDs, references to ``The Twin Cities``, TOH ID as pertaining to Monroe-West Monroe-Bastrop, Louisiana --- but no mention of Tallulah or Vicksburg. Is this ``Old School`` stuff something new, a syndication format? I know there are some other stations using that slogan; see OKLAHOMA. Old school could mean practically anything that is not current (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. While bandscanning on the caradio for TA carriers, also happened upon KKOB, 770, Albuquerque NM, Dec 30 at 2349 UT, with 39-degree temp, ad for NYE at a casino, some guy from Oklahoma subbing for regular local talkhost; he`s normally heard on KNML-610. Topic of the moment: ABQ`s DUI policy. Some noise from WBBM 780 IBOC. This is one of the best times to hear KKOB, after sunset here but before sunset there when they go extremely direxional westward.

According to the FCC SR/SS table for KKOB coordinates:

http://www.fcc.gov/fcc-bin/srsstime?dlat=35&mlat=12&slat=9.00&dlon=106&mlon=36&slon=41.00&tzone=C

LSS in December is 5:00 pm MST = 0000 UT. In January they gain a quarter-hour until 0015 UT.

Interesting that the *other* KKOB, the nondirexional 230 watt fill-in co-channel relay in Santa Fe, has a different sunset time in December of 4:45 pm:

http://www.fcc.gov/fcc-bin/srsstime?dlat=35&mlat=40&slat=56.00&dlon=105&mlon=58&slon=21.00&tzone=C

FCC classifies it as an ``experimental synchronous operation``. But I suppose they don`t turn it on until the primary transmitter goes direxional a quarter-hour later. Even so, at certain places between the two cities the signals interfere with each other, and I believe someone reported they are not precisely zero-beat as one would expect.

While we are there, we see that the sunrise times are 7:00 am MST in Dec, 7:15 in Jan, i.e. 1400 and 1415 UT for both cities, when we should also have a good chance eastward if we are not too far away.

The KKOB ABQ night pattern is a classic two-tower broad cardioid with a deep null toward New York (and Enid, and less precisely, Santa Fe):

Long wave is jumping tonight.  Morrocco putting good signal into Central Texas on 171.  Others seem to be coming in as well.

Strong French program on 183 Lw.
I shouldn't have skipped that high school French class so much.
Looking for ID, should be Europe 1

I'm hearing stations on 171, 183, 189, 224 Long Wave here in Central Texas.

11:55 AST / 0355 UTC I'm also getting pop music [for example Boney M Christmas music] on 207 KHz LSB on the R-75 while the two Collins filter receivers hold down the fort on 531 [actually, 532 as noted above].  Its tough slugging keeping the beacons at bay, but the ANF on the R-75 is a big help.

9575 MOROCCO   Médi Un, Nador DEC 16 0840 UTC - Fair-good, with heavy distorted audio, with news. I think that while 171 is undermodulated, 9575 is overmodulated, not necessarily causing as much pain to my ears as the buzz tonight, but certainly making the sound very low-FI. SINPO 35542.
