Glenn Hauser logs September 27, 2015

** CHINA. 6200, Sept 27 at 1251, lite song in Chinese? 1254 includes whistling; 1300 Chinese announcement and more music. Aoki says it is: Voice of Jinling, starting at the odd time of 1240, until 1500, since July 7, 100 kW, 161 degrees from Nanjing (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 560, unID, Sept 27 at 1147, barely audible, think I hear a station exclaim ``Súper éxitos . . . México``. Not a formal name unless new, none such in the three major references, IRCA Log, Cantú and WRTH. This early, it could be any of the 8 XEs except Chetumal (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** INDONESIA [and non]. 4750-, Sept 27 at 1241, RRI Makassar in the clear with Indonesian music and conversation; but at *1244.4 hit by LAH from 4750.0 Bangladesh or China, off again, and back on to stay from *1244.7. I wonder if this is an intentional variable sign-on time for them contrary to known schedules? The LAH worsens, so no more attempt to listen to RRI today, and both will soon be outfading (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 600, Sept 27 at 1209, ID for 102.7 FM and next words not originally copied must have been ``La Mejor`` as the only 600/102.7 combo in IRCA Log is XEHW, Mazatlán, Sinaloa. One of these days relying on FM/AM frequency match will trip us up if there are two of the same on one pair of frequencies, but odds are against it (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO [and non]. 760, Sept 27 at *1200 UT, KCCV Overland Park KS pops onto day power of 6 kW, no ID but Bott Network, and gospel-huxter show with guest short hoary wacko OK Sen. Inhofe to refute a pope about climate change. I had hoped to hear the XE already, which the last two mornings was playing nostalgic/American big band music. 1200 UT is the Sept official KCCV sunrise; Oct: *1230.

1215 UT recheck however, now the music station has taken over, but romantic vocal ballad music in Spanish this Sunday, at first making fast SAH with KCCV. Loops WSW. 1218 segué; 1224 announcement about ``760 - en esta hora, La Fantasma, en Geny-AM . . . música del recuerdo``, i.e. nostalgic in a sense, next tune romantic. 

So it`s the 5000/100 watt Nogales, Sonora station XENY and not XEES Chihuahua2. I wonder if it signed on at 1215, or just the right time for sunrise skip to push it in, Enid SR being 1223 UT today (but not until 1315 UT in both Nogales) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NIGERIA. 9690- & 7275-, Sept 27 at 0558, no signals from VON, which ought to be ramping up for the Hausa hour; propagation should be OK as even Romania is audible on 9700 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA. 96.9 KQOB and 98.1 WWLS-FM, Sunday Sept 27 at 1205 UT are both carrying `Sunday Morning Magazine` in English, breaking music and sports formats; first guest discussing Oklahoma tax matters, as also on 930 WKY and 640 KWPN. With one radio handy, can`t check whether synchronized, but probably all separate playouts. However, not on 98.9 or 100.5, while 104.9 not checked but low power and not necessarily audible here. As I noted last week, these are commonly-owned cluster RADIO LICENSE HOLDING CBC, LLC; except KQOB is still licensed to Champlin Broadcasting, Enid; but this program reveals it`s LMA`d to RLHCBCLLC. FCC Query info does not display LMA deals, tho maybe they can be dug out somewhere. LMA = local management agreement? I.e. station leased out to another company (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 870, Sept 27 at 1227 UT, Spanish ad for English learning with an 800 number, ID I can`t copy, ranchera. 1234 UT ID for ``870, una estación de ---`` but can`t copy the rest; more music. Loops east/west. With an ad, it can`t be XETAR Chihuahua, which I did hear a bit of circa 1210 UT but not logged. This late, the only other XE likely still to propagate, after XETAR has faded out, is XEFIL in Mazatlán, Sinaloa, 1000/250 watts, W Radio, La Sinaloense. The only US possibility is 5000/430 watt KLSQ near Las Vegas, NV which is SS with Univisión América. As for the 800 number clue, México also has such toll-free deals. Sinaloa is much more of a hotspot for SRS DX here, than NV (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
