** OKLAHOMA. RF 15, Sept 19 at 1512 UT, there goes another `open` TVDX frequency. TBN for OKC, originally RF 14 in NTSC analog, is finally back on air as DTV, steady strong 700 kW KTBO signal with this PSIP lineup:
14-1, TBN HD
14-2, Hillsng
14-3, Smile
14-4, Enlace
14-5, POSITV
same as already displayed by I`ve told Trip he can remove the X for not on the air. Main TBN channel had been carried on an LPTV I can`t get without tropo help, no longer necessary.

RF 14, meanwhile, is still open here, where KOCY ``48`` is supposed to have a 15 kW LPTV, Estrella TV, despite already being on the high-power KTUZ RF 29 transmitter, so who needs RF 14? Could maybe be on, but invisible here without tropo help. Trip`s coverage map shows it direxional south, not helpful here to the NNW (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** SPAIN [non]. Re previous report about someone hearing TAIWAN in Spanish on REE 17855 frequency: later suggests it was probably 7780 via WRMI at 2200 as scheduled, his SDR display messed up (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U K. 15660, Sept 19 at 1852, S9/+20. African language lo-fi on phone then hi-fi from studio. Aoki shows VOA Amharic via Woofferton daily.

15510, Sept 19 at 1853, equivalent signal to VOA 15660, per Aoki IBRA Radio, R. Sama in Arabic via Woofferton. Both among the strongest on band, rivaled only by 15140 Cuba, much greater than WRMI or WWCR (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2104 monitoring: confirmed UT Sunday September 19 at 0030 on WRMI 7730, VG direct; after canned IDs by Andy Sennitt, then a fragment of Bob Zanotti.

** U S A. 5085, UT Sun Sept 19 at 0028, WTWW-2 has already started `Theatre Organ Under The Arch`, so I switch immediately to $tereo webcast where it runs until Tedad at 0052, so started circa 0021 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, Sept 19 at 0625-0630 UT: 621, 684, 747(2), 837, 882, 1116, 1179, 1413 -- but no sign of 846, Kiritimati off? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 1710, Sept 19 at 0630 UT, JBA talk, presumably a TIS. The one most reported is WQFG689, Hudson County NJ, with beefed-up power for COVID info loops. Ordinarily on 1710 I get nothing but JBA carrier(s) (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
