Glenn Hauser logs April 23-24, 2020

** CANADA. 248 kHz, April 23 at 0622 UT, ND beacon dash and WG, which is 1000 watts from WinnipeG; not often heard (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA [non?]. 15110, April 23 at 1455-1500* Chinese talk at S9+10, cut off at ToH amid first/one timepip. Presumably CNR1 jammer against VOA Chinese via Philippines, this hour only, same as heard yesterday but now much better, and no signal from a second station; nor any similar signals on the 15 or 13 MHz bands. A pipeline, from where?

11675, April 23 at 1541, one Chinese signal at S6-S7, CNR1 jammer against RFA Saipan, this hour only (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 2031)

** CUBA. 6060 & 6000, April 23 at 0612, RHC English is OFF these two, still on 6100 & weaker 6145; 5040 also off. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NEW ZEALAND. 13840.007, April 24 at 0129, RNZI S9-S7 better than usual on this channel, and very slightly off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 267 kHz, April 23 at 0623 UT, NDB HET, which is 25 watts from HenryEtTa OK, not often heard. I was tuned to 265-USB, but 2 kHz away it was as weak as could be (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 14902-USB, Thursday April 23 at 1855, YL as Triblade 19, so a Civil Air Patrol net, calling Red Fire and several other tactical handles; long silence until 1900 she asks for relays, with Triblade 31, White Tail 51; agree to QSY to secret frequency designated N-E-H, for traffic, calls for more traffic or relays; 1902 Yosemite 80 with Triblade 60. Red Fire is Indiana; Yosemite of course California (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 6159.917V, April 24 at 0134, WBCQ-#? is on and wavering off-frequency with talk show, presumably Hal Turner, whom I have no interest in hearing; and without // matching, sounds like same thing on 5130 and on 7490.110v; and 9455 WRMI (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 570, April 23 at 0630 UT ``We`re the Voice of the Midwest, 570 WNAX`` and 0631 locally originated ``WNAX News`` presumably during break in some talk show.

Not the only slogan in NRC AM Log for 570 in Yankton SD, ``Your 5-state neighbor`` --- tho who knows, it may also be uttered.

Wikipedia agrees that Voice of the Midwest is the slogan of WNAX:

Searching also leads to Voice of the Midwest as title of a 1953y book about WLW Cincinnati. I think only those east of Ohio could think of it as Midwest.

``Midwest`` is certainly an ill-defined term. One source shows all the states within a ND-KS-OH triangle. But SD and others can also be considered in the Great Plains, or North Central region. Certainly not OK, tho we are the only state with a Midwest City = OKC suburb.

NRC DX News of April 14, AM Switch reported:
``Applications to extend existing STA received:
570 WNAX SD Yankton – Applies to extend STA, U1 5000/1250`` 

WNAX nominal parameters: 5000/5000 U2, i.e. ND daytime, direxionanl nighttime, majorly toward NNE with two minor southish lobes.

Where`s KLIF Dallas? Twice as close. Only WNAX heard now on the E-W longwire which should be equally unfavorable for both.

Both day and night patterns of KLIF are nullish toward here, but in the daytime it`s atop WNAX, always audible underneath via high-ground-conductivity path, and of course the only SD day signal arriving (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
