Hauser
** CHINA. 13130, August 1 at 1351, JBA carrier presumed CNR1 jammer,
the only one around in the 12-13s; and in the 10s-11s, only another
JBA carrier on 10825; but in the latter case not a known SOH/CNR1
frequency; EiBi only has this: 10825 0000-2400 F French Diplo ALE F
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 11850, August 1 at 2137, RHC Spanish is JBM, S7-S4, flanked
by even weaker JBA spur parasites on 11840; and 11860 where it hets R.
Martí and jamming. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. Nearby NDB daytime check August 1 at 2150 UT: 515-MCW, PN
Ponca City still off; 341-MCW, EI Enid JBA; 255-MCW, SW Stillwater
still off (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, Sunday August 1 at 2130, REE opening `Emisión
Sefarad` but sounds like pure Castilian to me at first; then some
``odd`` words mixing in (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2097 monitoring: confirmed Sunday
August 1 at 2000 on ``IRRS Shortwave``, 918 kHz, Granze, Italy, S9+32
but noisy into Noale KiwiSDR.

Not/confirmed Sunday August 1 at 2200 on Area 51 & WBCQ. On webcast it
starts promptly but no signal on 6159.9v into three New England SDRs
checked. However at 2208 recheck, on webcast WOR has been replaced by
Hobart Radio International interval-signal show, which is supposed to
follow at 2230. What in the world is going on? HRI ends at 2234, then
more music fill until TimTron at 2300. The 2200 WOR broadcast was also
missing from SW last week, but ran at 0300 UT Monday instead. This
week, 4790 & 7490 other WBCQs are confirmed on.

Confirmed Sunday August 1 at 2238 the 2230 on WRMI 9955; Bonaire busy,
but nearby Trinidad SDR, always inferior, barely hears it S7 with
noise. Much better into Tennessee, VG S9+20/30. Next:

0030 UT Monday WRMI 7730 to WNW
0230 UT Monday WRMI 7780 to NE, 5800 to SSE
1030 UT Wednesday WRMI 5850 to NW [off air last week]
2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
0130 UT Thursday WRMI 5010 to S

One may also contribute by MO or check in US funds on a US bank
to: Glenn Hauser, Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 USA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 9350, August 1 at 2142, WWCR-2 with anti-vax hysteria from
Alex Jones; skedgrid dated August 1 is already up; an odd time for
`InfoWars`, only on Sundays as whatever live time of this dangerous
nonsense is not enough; WWCR has blood on its antennas (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

This report dispatched at 2340 UT August 1

** ANTARCTICA. 15475.98-RCUSB, Sat July 31 at 1505, no LRA36 signals
into the three Brasilian KiwiSDRs active, Pardinho, Campo and São
Luiz. Nor was it on last Saturday, so only on Wednesdays now? (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammers: 12880, July 31 at 1358 and only 12500, S7-S8
with flutter (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 13740, August 1 at 0105, RHC Spanish happens to be on and
S9+30. That reminds me, someone recently reported RHC on 27480 but did
not realize it was second harmonic of 13740; but I haven`t been able
to find that report again. I`ve yet to hear 27480 myself, but worth
keeping checking when there is some sporadic E at least to 28 MHz;
also other Cubans on 27400 and 27300 when the resp. fundamentals
radiate (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 12000, August 1 at 0114, RHC with YL in thin English
[thinglish?], quite readable but less than the S9+30 signal on 6000
fundamental. Yet only a JBA carrier on 12330 = 2 x 6165. Something`s
always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GERMANY. 9670, August 1 at 0110, rock at S8-S9. Must be one of
those Channel 292 tests, for N America? Schedule grid at
https://www.channel292.de/schedule-9670-khz/
shows nothing special, just ``worldwide`` at 00-02 UT Aug 1 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GREECE. 9420, Sat July 31 at 0542, VOG is on at S5-S8. Eric
Fetters-Walp in Washington had noted it missing at 0240. Ron Howard
says they were back on by 0436. We expect them to be silent early UT
Mondays, but not Saturdays. Alan Holder explains:

``They may have been off earlier due to a technical problem with the
transmitter or maybe even the power supply from the Grid was
interrupted.

Sign on time is supposed to be 1800, but times are very erratic. On
some days they are on just after 1730; the latest I have heard them
sign on is 1915.

After the close of the usual religious service (theia lietourgia)
early on Sunday mornings, there is no broadcast on Sunday evenings and
9420 is never back on until 1800 on Monday.

I have often wondered why this should be - is the transmitter engineer
deeply religious and attending church services on Sundays?
No - the answer is most likely the fact that under Greek labour laws,
anyone working on Sundays is entitled to their normal wage + 25%.
Overnight working on Sundays means they receive 75% on top of their
regular salary.

I imagine that ERT is operating the short wave service on a very tight
budget and that they are not prepared to pay any extra to
their employee at this station for Sunday working. Alan Holder, G4ZBH,
Isle of Wight, U.K.`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6950-USB, August 1 at 0104, rock music vs heavy
storm noise from next county, Grant. I leave it to lots of IDs here as
Radio Free What-ever:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,84523.0.html
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 93.9, July 31 at 1741, still 1900 and later, dead air in
stereo from KIMY Watonga instead of gospel-huztering; like yesterday.
Hello, is anyone there? Please turn off not only the modulation but
the transmitter as I am hunting for sporadic E DX, unsuccessfully
(Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA [non?}. 96.5, July 31 at 1744 UT there`s a chance of
sporadic E MUFing into FM, so bandscanning on caradio, but `open`
channels are choppy with fringe signals fading in and out thru the
100-degree groundwave atmosphere. On 96.5 at least besides the two
Okies, I barely hear bits of Spanish music, and at 1747 YL in Spanish.
However, another momentary peak at 1902 in Spanish seems to mention
Oclajoma. KECO Elk City is certainly not SS but possibly could run
some ads in Spanish, which is the Second Language in OK, by 7.3% of
the population. And I do find some search hits combining Spanish with
Elk City, but not directly with that station in CiudAnte (Glenn
Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. RF 27, KFOR-TV OKC has a human-interest series completing
30 years on the air, ``Is This a Great State or What?``, by Galen
Culver. Here`s the anniversary show which leads to many more, each
only a few minutes long:
https://kfor.com/video/great-state-at-30-how-we-got-here-and-there/6853856/
Year 31 starts August 2 (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. This should discourage me from trying to utter a
YouTube URL again: ``CHET-NUN. 2021 Summer
Subject: Edit needed for WOR 2097 at 14:00m
Dear GH, About 14:00m into wor2097.mp3
is a error in the youtube URL on the Canada catch of the Nicaragua TV
signal. 0gNiN should read 0gNiu
See you, Hawkshare. Sent from EarthLink Mobile mail``

It`s too inconvenient to edit at this point but will correct it on
next program. So the full correct link is:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-0gNiuovOKI
At least I could differentiate oval zero from circular oh in this
font.

WORLD OF RADIO 2097 monitoring: confirmed Sat July 31 at 1618 the 1600
on WRN webcast to N America; and also on satellite.

Also confirmed Sat July 31 at 1800+ on IRRS via AM Italia 918 kHz,
Granze, S9+32 into nearby Noale SDR; and 6 seconds later on IRRS 7290
kHz via Bulgaria, good into UTwente. As usual, 918 chopped off
previous talk program before 1759 for IRRS` Aïda theme; 7290 went from
open carrier except for warble on USB side, to join Aïda in progress
about a minute later; very brief ID, pause and then WOR on both.

Also confirmed Sat July 31 at 1956, about halfway into so started
circa 1942 on WA0RCR, 1860-AM, S9+8 into nearby KB0FX SDR.

Also confirmed Sat July 31 at 2000 on WRMI 15770, S5-S6 into UTwente,
S9+15/20 into Maryland SDR; followed SMTV until 1959.5 cut to WRMI
ID.

Also confirmed UT Sun August 1 at 0325 on WA0RCR, MO, 1860-AM, direct
but buried in high storm noise level, about 8 minutes into so started
circa 0317. Next:

2000 UT Sunday IRRS 918-Italy
2200vUT Sunday WBCQ 6160v Area 51 to WSW [last week: 0300 Mon]
2230 UT Sunday WRMI 9955 [jammed?] to SSE

to: Glenn Hauser, Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 USA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 5950, Sat July 31 at 2300, after an hour of `Encore`, WRMI
starts `Blues Radio International`, more good but quite different
music --- but shortly cuts over to the `UFO Show`, almost like a
manual override of an automation error. Either that or the error
programmed in. July 1 skedgrid shows the latter now as its only time,
while BRI allegedly has three others (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (5085), UT Sun August 1 at 0025, WTWW-2 webcast has just
started $ tereo organ music on TOUTA. There is no such thing as
accurate scheduling, start time varying widely. Bob Heil is playing
other thorganists he admires and explains who taught whom. Abruptly
over at 0053, gotta get right back to *real* music: rock!! (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 7345, July 30 at 2350, no signal from R. Martí, DRM
or AM. Had been running DRM daytime starting at 1700 until 0200, but
UT July 28 had switched to AM. Now gone but pulse jamming remains. No
other RM AM signals on 7 MHz band yet nor 6030 to start at 0000 but
5980 already running, tough luck for R. Chaski, Perú (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** NETHERLANDS [non]. 5800, UT Sat July 31 at 0200, Cool AM Radio,
another pirate relay via Texas Radio SW via WRMI; VG via Tennessee
SDR. Rock music none of which I recognize, nor which I think is ever
announced by name or performer? Frequent heavily produced liners and
IDs, main voice doing a very good American accent, invites reports to
coolamradio@hotmail.com 0214 banjo music; 0232 ID with website
www.coolam.nl; 0244 plug supporting free radio, address again. 0256
closing with tnx to WRMI and TRSW for availablizing this. Closes with
``I`ll give you a kiss``, ``and now for something completely
different``; `Yellow Rose of Texas` theme;

0300 into `Viva Miami` in Spanish, starting with info about then
upcoming special broadcast on 5010, Monday July 26 of Oasis-1210
coverage of that march on Washington; and mailbag; 0315 into Mideast
music fill; 0325 Cayman Holiday; 0339 still World Music fill with that
perennial, `Sandunga` on marimba (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** NORTH AMERICA. 9610-USB, July 31 at 0038, hard rock at S7-S8 into
Missouri SDR, tnx to hot tip from Vance-MI in latest Free Radio Weekly
just arrived that after emitting on 9530 and 9520 as heard since 2320
by Robins & Zichi, Mix Radio International had switched to 9610. It`s
quite in the clear there; hard rock with breaks for canned IDs and/or
address at 0048, 0051, 0136, 0148, 0154, still past 0200 when I am
mainly listening to Cool AM Radio on 5800 via WRMI; and MRI still
going on 9610-USB at 0250, 0317, 0341 chex.

Had been on lower 9 MHz channels as early as 1806 July 30, and
announced frequency changes here:
https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,84476.0.html

BTW, earlier around 2350 July 30 check of 6.9-MHz pirate band found no
activity; quite a bit in HFU an hour later (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2097 monitoring: confirmed UT
Saturday July 31 at 0130 on WRMI 9395, VG S9+10/20 via east Tennessee

to: Glenn Hauser, Box 1684, Enid OK 73702 USA (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 4840, July 29 at 0617, S9+30 of dead air from WWCR. This
happens frequently, sloppyrator asleep, literally? at the switch.
Meanwhile, TOMBS continues on 3215 & 5890, the latter lowly modulated
compared to 5935 PMS (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. (7489.9v), UT Sat July 31 from 0000, WBCQ webcast with
`AAAWWW` starting William Tell Overture. Tomorrow is the 175th
anniversary of founding of Monticello, so A&A are participating in 10
am parade. Lauds how well the little town has treated WBCQ; population
down to less than 1,000 [2,010 census or Rand McNally estimate was
only 400!]. Jason will be broadcasting the parade on WBCQ`s AM & FM
stations on 780, 94.7 & 98.3 but probably not SW on short notice.

A&A visit the scenic Maine coast on a day or two off, and found that
lunch for two now costs $ 93 at their favorite restaurant; good food,
but ?!?! Lamenting inflation, minimum wage increases, etc. That
annoying caller Tim interrupts again this week at 0017, so I zone out,
but he`s pushing gold and silver when I zone back in.

0029 Allan laments that FCC is not taking any axion on his application
to buy WHRI; against AW`s dedication to religious and Free Speech
broadcasting? Not as pointed or detailed as his memo I quote verbatim
on WOR this week. 0043 finally datestamp as 30 July YOOL 2021, and
quadri-casting on 7490, 6160, 4790 and 3265. Since 3265 has not been
heard lately, I quickcheck one of the Rochester NY remotes where it is
indeed JBA; the Kiwi in Maine run by the same ham is unavailable.

0050 Free Radio Weekly has just arrived, so he reads a few items, just
frequencies, station names and some content, no times or credits; he
mentions Mix Radio International but overlooks hot-off-the-press news
that it just moved to 9610-USB, where I am also hearing it, see NORTH
AMERICA. Larry Will just sent a report on WBCQ frequencies now.

0056 update on the SuperStition; blew up about 3 weeks ago. Thalès in
France is fast-tracking a replacement PA tube and will air-freight it
within weeks rather than months. Hard to get tower crews in to work on
the antenna due to Covi-nation. Says recent events have trimmed 2-3
years off his lifespan, but Angela is young and beautiful as ever; she
jokes that his distress has affected her too. 0100 he reiterates that
as a Man Of Science, he understands how vaccines work and urges them.
Angela still thinks vax result from Chinese bio-weapon and should not
be trusted. Prayer and again runs just past 0101+ into Hal Turner
time. Here is John Carver`s version:

``Tonight's show started on time on 4790, 6160 and 7490. Allan and
Angela in the studio. The usual banter between Allan and Angela. Allan
announced that tomorrow is the one hundred and seventy-fifth
anniversary of the founding of Monticello. Said that they would all be
riding in the parade. He also mentioned that Angela was related to
several people in Monticello. Allan then complains about spending
ninety-three bucks for lunch while touring coastal Maine with Angela.
Angela wonders whether the new minimum wage accounts for the huge
increase in prices.

Phone call from Tim at 0017 and things get a bit confusing with all
the stuff that Tim is saying. Then the talk turns to finance, interest
rates, credit cards, debit cards, people today not understanding how
business really works. Then Allan jumps to talking about the FCC and
states that he can't understand why there hasn't been a decision made
yet on the purchase of WHRI. Phone call at 0039 with a reception
report and some comments about a caller a couple weeks ago. Another
phone call at 0049. Reading of the new edition of Free Radio Weekly at
0050. Sorry but I missed the last five minutes of the program and can
only assume that things went well. John, Mid-North Indiana`` (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CHINA. CNR1 jammer check, July 30 at 1343: S8-S6 of Chinese on
13130; but only JBA or JBA carriers on 13530, 13020, 12850, no others
in the 12s-13s nor 16s (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, July 30 at 0614, RHC English, S9+10 at first seemed
dead air, but then JBM with no buzz. 6000 & 6165 & 5040 are off,
leaving only 6100 sufficient. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA [and non]. 7435 & 7335, July 29 at 0619, R. Martí is off
again; apparently the unrest in Cuba it stirred up has subsided. Since
at least July 12 it had extended past previous midnight closing at
0400 UT, presumably all-night until new day start at *1000.

But pulse jammers are still running on 7435 & 7335; and as for 40m
hamjamming, similar noise against nothing on 7215 and 7157 only,
rather than several more amorphous peaks as before (Glenn Hauser, OK,
WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 93.9, July 30 at 1602 past 1620 on random caradio chex,
dead air from KIMY, gospel huxter in Watonga; still so at 1729 UT.
Standard inquiry? (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** PERU [non]. Replies to my report on 5800 WRMI special, July 29 at
0300-0400: ``Regarding Perú le canta a las Américas,

Not sure what to make of the squeal being described, I briefly
monitored over 20 SDRs at various locations during the broadcast and
did not note this although other audio quality was variable depending
upon location. We'll see what comes in from the other reception
reports.

The conversational part of the program was a three-way Skype between
Lima, Peru, Durango, Mexico and Chicago USA. The best audio available
in that situation was going to be good telephone (vs studio) quality,
but the locations were authentic. The music was added later in the
mixdown, which accounts for the difference. Our upcoming special for
México in September will be a similar situation, with two locations in
México.

This producer will agree to disagree on the question of "more music,
less talk". Those fully fluent en español received some cultural
context to the bicentennial as well as about the songs and artists
themselves, and although that is admittedly not always to the taste of
all listeners, it is here - context - where radio can still add value
to music in a world where most listeners can just as easily pull up
songs on the Internet with better audio quality.

The promotional support as always is highly appreciated. --"Uncle
Bill" Tilford, Chicago, Illinois``

``The "squeal" problem with WRMI's 5800 kHz transmitter is real.
although I'd describe it as a "warbling whistle." On my SDR waterfall,
there are two unstable audio traces around 2 and 4 kHz from the
carrier on both sidebands. These have been noted consistently during
the Europirate relays organized by Texas Radio Shortwave the last few
weeks. As Glenn mentioned, this is almost certainly caused by a
problem with the transmitter's modulator. 73,
Andy Robins, Kalamazoo, Michigan USA``

``Does that turn up at just some azimuths maybe? Perhaps we'll find
out soon`` -- Tilford

There is only one azimuth ever scheduled for 5800: 160 degrees, same
as 4980 and 9955 (gh)

``Hola Glenn, Muchas gracias por tu reporte, hasta ahora hemos
recibido 14 reportes, tuvimos muy buena cobertura a nivel mundial.
estamos muy contentos, y te agradezco mucho tu promoción, yo mismo la
escuché en WOR la semana pasada.

Tu informe es muy críitico e interesante, te cuento, tratamos de
imitar el estilo de las emisoras tropicales de los años 70, la voz
femenina que nos acompañó es la de mi ex mujer. Hicimos este programa
para divertirnos y honrar al Perú en su bicentenario, yo soy
historiador especializado en las relaciones diplomáticas entre Perú y
México. Te mando tu verificación junto con un abrazo`` -- Alejandro

** ROMANIA [and non]. 7310, July 30 after 2200, RRI in English to
Europe also reaches Maryland SDR just fine. Also weaker on 5945. Too
much piles up at this hour, also Turkey on 9830, Spain on 17855 M/W/F;
hard to choose which or keep switching around (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A. 13565-CW, July 30 at 1349, HIFER beacon repeating ID K6FRC
over and over quite readable vs CODAR; before retiring I had tuned to
13564-USB to remind me to check this first thing in morning. Claiming
only 1.8 milliwatts from Patterson CA, any relog of K6FRC remains
notable, and certainly not every day, but never very far from 1400
making me wonder if it really run constantly. Seldom heard are any of
the dozens of other such beacons listed on the 13550-13570 ISM band
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2097 monitoring: confirmed first
SWBCs, UT Fri July 30 at 0130 on WRMIs: 5850 VG direct; 7780, S9/+20
into UTwente Holland SDR.

Also confirmed Fri July 30 at 2030 on IRRS via AM Italia, 918 kHz,
this week not cut off after 5 seconds but apparently complete until

** U S A. 4840, July 29 at 0617, S9+30 of dead air from WWCR. This

** CUBA. 6060 & 6100 & 6165, July 29 at 0614, RHC English all about
equally undermodulated and strengths S9+10/20 while 6000 and 5040 are
off. No buzz on 6060. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser,
OK, WOR)

** PERU [non]. 5800, UT Thu July 29 at 0300, WRMI with special `Perú
Le Canta a las Américas`, in honor of the bicentennial of independence
in 1821y. I don`t have time to listen when broadcast, so record and
listen ASAP later. Opens with disturbing clip of about first 14 notes
of national anthem and IDs as if it were an interval signal. I object
to messing with NAs whether the SSB or any other.

But nice other Peruvian music for the hour mixed with Spanish-only
comments. I would have preferred more music and wish I were fluent
enough to follow the lyrix 100%. But then I often have trouble with
lyrix in ``English``! Bill Tilford speaks his inimitable Spanish here
and there, along with Alejandro Vallebueno, co-producer from Durango,
México, but someones also from Perú. Their comments sound like they
came over low bitrate internet, but music fortunately is
higher-fidelity.

Also it happens that this WRMI-10 transmitter on 5800 has a constant
squeal on it, rather like WWCR-1 used to be but that was much worse.
I`m hearing this on two different remotes so don`t think receivers are
to blame. It`s equally on USB and LSB so can`t avoid it that way, only
by narrowing AM bandwidth which of course is no good for the music.
Possibly a double-notch filter would help if we had one, tho the
squeal by definition is not a single pure pitch tone, but wavers. I`ve
noticed same on other 5800 broadcasts. For WWCR I heard that the cause
was modulator `cards` that needed to be replaced.

At 0329 break for WRMI ID, and personal greeting from Jeff White. Then
talk about Peruvian SW stations such as R. Tawantinsuyo, La Voz de la
Selva, R. Tarma. On SW they are all private stations, but on AM & FM,
R. Nacional has an important presence. There is a cultural classical
station on FM in Lima. Credits such DXers such as César Pérez Dioses.
About 0332 a cappella man singing I presume in Quechua. Next song
features a guy with a bad voice for singing. Then Estefanía sings with
a vocal range to rival Yma Sumac. Next song is a dance from the north
by a brass band. About 0349, something about a religious festival. I
never notice any reference to the current uncertain political
situation. Mentions Inca-Kola, which I remember as very pink and sweet
but today is a.k.a. golden with lemony flavor' and supposedly
available at my nearest Walmarts.

At 0354, QSL instruxions, at least 20 minutes of program details and
SINPO which would be 54554, main problem being the self-imposed squeal
which I will classify as I. Follows with cock crowing, chirps, and
other morning sounds mixed with an `Andean` tune, and closing.

All nice, but I wish they had included the national anthem complete
and uninterrupted. It is a very good one. Here`s one version of it I
find, all six verses for 12 minutes, but not showing the lyrix as
available on some others:

** U S A. 840, July 29 at 0530 UT, on a household radio against an E-W
wall, minimising WHAS, after Mexican music, Spanish IDs, fairly
clearly as ``Radio Malena`` 840; maybe also mentioned 1060. Later I
carefully null WHAS on the DX-398. The SS fades in and out, and
sometimes coincides up with WHAS down, SAH of a few Hz, but no break
at ToH 0600. At 0610 I can tell the songs are axually praisemusic by
their lyrix, the one now ``En el Nombre de Jesús`` over and over; 0619
another one about Jesús.

I know from experience that the normal SS vs WHAS is KVJY Pharr TX in
the RGV, 5/1 kW, rather than CMHW Santa Clara or any other LA.
Radio-locator night coverage map shows a null NE toward WHAS, mainly
to the NW but some signal due north. But that is not the known slogan
of KVJY. Supposedly ``Ultra 104.9`` but another name on website:

https://radioaleluya.org/horarios-de-programaciones/
R. Aleluya, as also in NRC Log is certainly not the name I was
hearing. But this schedule does not account for anything between 9 pm
and 6 am CDT!

Broad search on ``Radio Malena`` leads to stations in Serbia and
Argentina, but on FM, no connexion to AM; nor is there any similar
name in WRTH 840 or 1060 listings for Central and South America.
Possibly KVJY is plugged into a Radio Malena, altho the Argentine
appears to be secular. Mexican? IRCA Log of 2020 shows only two left
on 840, both ``Fiesta Mexicana``, in Jalisco and Nayarit.

The only other US SS on 840 in the 2020-2021 NRC AM Log, no later than
a year ago, were KJFA Belén NM [ex-860] with grupo ``Fuego 102.9``,
1800/30 watts; and WCEO Columbia SC, 50 kW direxional daytimer, ``La
Raza``, both extremely unlikely now, by power and/or time and/or
direxion. Possibly the name I heard was spelt differently than
``Malena`` as it seemed, so no further search hits.

FWIW, not much, the KVJY stream at 1700 UT July 29 after music had
multi-station ID for Houston, Iowa?, as Radio Aleluya, into `Diálogo
Pastoral` from Houston with hum (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
