Glenn Hauser logs+ October 17, 2021

** CANADA. Blitzortung shows hardly any storms in N America north of southern Mexico; so a lot of ND beacons are audible, most of them just barely, Oct 17 at 0630-0702 UT, thoroly bandscanned originally really downward:

212-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0702 UT, dash and YGX, 50 watts from Gillam MB

258-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0652 UT, dash and ZSJ, 1000 watts from Sandy Lake ON -- the only beacon in NAm on 258 per

269-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0650 UT, dash and UDE, 50 watts from Delta MB

284-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0638 UT, dash and QD, 500 watts from The Pas MB

335-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0635 UT, dash and YLD, 1000 watts from Chapleau ON

340-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0634 UT, dash and YY, 500 watts from Mont Joli QC

346-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0634 UT, dash and YXL, 500 watts from Sioux Lookout ON

351-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0633 UT, dash and YKQ, 500 watts from Fort Rupert / Waskaganish QC

362-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0632 UT, dash and SB, 500 watts from Greater Sudbury ON

See U S A for a few more interspersed (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11850, Oct 17 at 2210, RHC Spanish S9+25 but severely suptorted; flanked by parasitic JBA spur carriers 11840 & vs jamming on 11860. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 11670, Oct 17 at 2159, REE best here with 2200 TS and dead air for a while. Just before that, 17855 & 15520 JBA carriers, 11940 still no signal; direct, even tho 11670 is on worst azimuth toward Africa, but lowest by MUF (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. Some ND beacons not often heard but audible during a bandscan downward Oct 17 at 0630-0702 UT, interspersed among more Canadians, q.v.:

257-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0653 UT, FWC, 25 watts from Fairfield / Wayne County IL. I was tuned to 255-USB, still in absence of SW Stillwater OK. And FWC has a very brief pause between repeats

282-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0639 UT, ROS, 25 watts from Rush City MN. The only NDB on this frequency anywhere in N America; and a rare new one for me, I think. Rush City is at exit 159 of I-35, N of MSP.

329-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0636 UT, PMV, 25 watts from Plattsmouth NE

417-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0631 UT, IY, 25 watts from Charles City IA; better copy tuned to 415-USB

420-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 0630 UT, FQ, 25 watts from Fairmont MN

And next daytime: 341-MCW kHz, Oct 17 at 1506 UT, OIN, 25 watts from Oberlin KS - still in absence of local EI Enid - it had a long pause, so must not hasten across frequency to be sure it`s still AWOL from its 3 little dits (Glenn Hauser, Enid OK, WOR)

** U S A. 1580 et al.., reply to questions raised with KFCS log:

``Glenn writes: “But in Colorado Springs itself on 94.7 there is K234AJ, 84-watt Christian in English relay of KTLF 90.5. With a separate but probably previous entry for the same except call as K290AK which would not be 94.7 at all.”

FCC has K290AK at 105.9 in Colorado Springs….

All the Tigre stations are owned by GREELEY BROADCASTING CORPORATION except for K276GG. MOUNTAIN COMMUNITY TRANSLATORS, LLC. which appears to be a leased operation. Colorado Springs and Pueblo are geographically separated by Cheyenne Mountain so the 94.7 xlator can easily coexist with Tigre 94.7

Glenn writes: “Where is Beulah? Remote tiny town SW of Pueblo. Strangely, nothing about KRYE 94.7 here:”

Like many of the other “City of License” locations that the FCC accepts in suburbs and surrounding grazing lands. It’s a way to shoehorn in a radio station…

The Tigre brand is GREELEY BROADCASTING CORPORATION whose Tigre is out of Greeley at KGRE AM & FM and translator K271BN Estes Park are wholly owned. 73 Wayne Heinen N0POH, Editor, NRC AM Radio Log, Aurora, CO`` (via Glenn Hauser, WOR)
