This month’s CME was on all frequencies from 150 to 750 kHz.  There are a lot of nice LW NDB and MW logs this month.

 

We have some new loggers like Mark Connelly and a very large number of LW loggings this  month, especially from Byron Johnson. Its great to see logs from these two and great to see all your logs!

 

Get after it guys, there is something in this for everyone. Even when you log a local as well as DX it helps people to know whats on the air for when they are spinning the dials.

 

Turn your radio on. What are you hearing? The world is out there just for tuning in. You never know what you might hear.

** MEXICO. Another search for sunrise skip MW DX, Oct 17. Around 1225, usual suspects on 610, 650, 730, 870, probably relogs so kept seeking elsewhere.

700, at 1231, Mexican NA from the WSW; 1233 quick jingle ID with call letters but could not copy, ``Buenos días de XE ---``, TC for 27:7 so is in CST/MDT zone, into canned show ``Consejos para un mejor vivir``, maybe about astrology? At least that was mentioned, soon fading out. Per WRTH the only fit is XEGD, 5 kW, La Poderosa, Hidalgo del Parral, Chihuahua. All others are in the wrong part of Mexico except XEETCH, 5 kW daytimer, La Voz de los Tres Ríos, Etchojoa, Sonora, but that`s in the UT-7 zone.

** U S A. 660, Oct 17 at 1235 UT, Dineh drumming and chanting, no doubt from KTNN, Window Rock AZ, with KSKY Dallas nulled. Is this really on night pattern with null toward New York and us? Of course, it`s already sunny eastward from OK, so why not day pattern? No way at this hour it could be degrading WFAN in the Atlantic Northwest (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. Pre- and post-sunrise (1241 UT) MW DX Oct 18:

620, at 1218, PSA for Chihuahua electoral, promo Día de los Muertos specials running daily at 7 pm; jingle, 6:20 TC, OM DJ, more mentions of Chihuahua, so it`s XEBU, La Norteñita, Chihuahua city, 5 kW day.

660, at 1229, Spanish TC for 6:30, US béisbol lineups. Probably XEACB in Ciudad Delicias, Chih.

710, at 1220 TC for 6:20, jingle mentioning Cuauhtémoc, promo for a giveaway, so XEDP, La Ranchera, 7 kW, in that Chihua2 hi-elevation town. Where`s KGNC Amarillo? Its 10 kW day and night patterns do not favor us, but instead the Llano Estacado, tho we still get it over 400 km away by daytime groundwave, as does OKC. Long live sunrise skipover!

730, at 1221, VG signal with singing ID ``Radio Viva Vida``; has frequent IDs and even the songs seem to be as short as possible; 1230 fed PSA for Constitución, Poder Judicial, full ID as XEHB, 730 kHz, 50,000 watts de potencia, street address on tercer piso, [Hidalgo del] Parral, Chihuahua; norteña music; 1234 SID ``Ésta es Radio Viva Vida``, then slower tune by YL singer featuring accordion and tuba. At first copied call as ``XEACV`` which sounds a lot like XEHB.

760, at 1203, XEES, Antena 7-60, apparent sign-on with street address, in Chihuahua, watts, then ``Antena 7-60 presenta: Al Amanecer``, (At Dawn), TC ``las seis, tres``. Am getting a weak lightning crash every 5 minutes or so as a storm tries to build up over Enid, dissipates. WRTH 2010 shows this as ``Antena Musical 7-60``, 1 kW in Chihuahua capital, but heard slogan several times without the Musical.

Cantú agrees on the slogan, and linx to website, http://www.antena760.com/ where we see it is one of the seven-station Grupo Radio Divertida; logo is a car whip with a broken circle around the ball on top, and claims to be 10 kW. Sounds like it to me.

10/18

I will be in Amsterdam, Netherlands for about 2 hours tomorrow during mid day. Will try to do a bandscan with my Grundig G8 and a sensitive hi-fi flash recorder. Tonight I am recording AM Dx with the same arrangement from Erozheim Germany. Then off to Maine and Massachusetts. Paris is scratched. General Strike with Aviation and other laborers, as France intends to raise the retirement age from 60 to 62 and the laborers will have none of it, disrupting a number of flights arriving. 

NOthing over 160kmh on the autobahn as there are snow tires on the car that could use some finer balancing...#

 Let's see what I get... 648khz BBC and a slavic music station. I think the slavic (or Polish) has a signal echo... synchros with 50dbu signal. 

10/19

LW:

153 and 156 German lang. Wideband radio, perhaps for the two identical frequencies one lower pitched audio the next higher pitched audio. 3 on my scale of 0 to 3. 

159-165 in FF, .5 scale of 3

 177, .5 oops language not noted on scribble pad. 

180-186, FF, 2 scale of 3 

204-210 'Deutchland Funk' 1 of 3 scale 

231-237, FF .5 scale of 3, probably telling me my flight from Munich to Paris cancelled, little did I know. (resched flight through Netherlands instead) 

MW#

549 .25 scale no lang noted

576, German

666 .5 scale German

756 German 1 scale
