``9665.571 kHz on upper side flank now Brazilian station sermon heard in central Europe post, at 0708 UT on Aug 10, NOT FIX FREQUENCY, variable 15-20 Hertz moved around up and down`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9395, UT Sun Aug 11 at 0130, I remember to check WRMI for the Mason Vye show which started a week before at 0100-0200, and supposed to be fortnightly; but what would WRMI program alternate weeks interveningly? Suspected would just play back first Vye show, and indeed they do. But first as I tune in, the Radio Tirana IS, as should be heard here like five other days of week; but instead of RT programming, 0131 cut to unID rock music. Poor reception on the ATS-909 by the computer and TVs, but check again at 0142, guy is giving a Canadian postal code ending in 1A0, and a .ca address. 0159, ID for WQNA Springfield, and then the full Ontario address ending with N0N 1A0 fonetikaly; before 0200 switching to Radio Prague IS and English.

Mason Vye had notified me earlier:

``New program on WRMI --- I host a music-oriented program on student and community radio stations WQNA Springfield, IL and WTND-LP Macomb, IL and plan to simulcast an hour on WRMI’s 9395 kHz signal beginning Saturday, August 3rd at 2100 ET (0100 UT Sunday) and again in a fortnight on August 17th. My program originates from Alvinston, Ontario, Canada and features a mixture of popular music with emphasis on Canadian artists. North American satellite TVRO listeners may remember me from the defunct W0KIE network. Regards, Mason Vye, Aug 2, WORLD OF RADIO 1994, DX LISTENING DIGEST)``

I missed the first one, but saw him already on the WRMI sked grid with his name as the program title. Too bad this bumps off Radio Tirana, but they never asked to be on WRMI anyway, and are already pre-empted on UT Thursdays for `This Is A Music Show`.

Then August 9, he writes me again: ``WQNA FM is ending after 40 years in Springfield, Illinois. The Capital Area Career Center has put the station up for sale due to rising operating costs and declining student enrollment in the Radio-TV program. Until a buyer is found, WQNA will continue to operate with its volunteer staff. Regards, Mason Vye`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 11702-11704, Aug 11 at 1343, intermittent SSB talk sounds like English intonation, but cannot make it resolve by tuning up and down in USB or LSB. Suspect third harmonic from an 80m ham circa 3901, where nothing is audible vs high line noise level; and probably not propagating anyway on the fundamental unlike the harmonic (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
