Radio TPOT:
Zomertijd antenne tijd luid het gezegde.
Vaak wordt dit dan verteld om te verhullen dat er probleempjes zijn met de antenne installatie 😃
Nu is dat hier niet anders, de zendantenne is met zijn werkfrequentie gezakt van 918 naar 913 KHz.
Zoiets kan natuurlijk niet zo maar gebeuren, daar moet een reden voor zijn. Helaas heb ik het vandaag niet kunnen vinden dus morgen maar verder.
Vandaar dat er even geen uitzendingen zijn van radio TPOT op de 918 KHz. Als er nieuws is wordt het hier zo spoedig gemeld, stay tuned zeggen ze dan.

Summer time antenna time loud the saying.
Often this is told to cover up the problems with the antenna installation 😃
Now that’s no different here, the broadcast antenna has fallen from 918 to 913 KHz with its working frequency.
Of course, something like this can’t happen, there must be a reason for it.
Unfortunately I didn’t find it today so tomorrow we’ll continue. That’s why there are no broadcasts of radio TPOT on the 918 KHz for a while.
If there is news, it will be reported here as soon as possible, stay tuned they say 👍

Oldies KYNO 1430 Moves to 50,000 Watt 940 in Central California.
In Fresno, California, Oldies KYNO 1430 (5,000 watts) and ESPN sports KFIG 940 (50,000 watts) are swapping formats and call letters. At one time, KYNO was a Drake-Chenault station (a la Boss Radio 93/KHJ). The move to 940 makes KYNO the only Oldies station on a 50,000-watt station in the United States. However, the station beams most of its signal to the west.

From the article: “It will become the most powerful oldies station in America, featuring music from the late ‘50s through the early ‘70s all day.”

“There are only 12 full-time 50,000-watt radio stations in California, and only 48 full-time, 50,000-watt stations in the country. And of all those, there isn’t one full-time, 50,000-watt radio station that plays full-time oldies,” he said
“KYNO’s success granted the Program Director Bill Drake and Chenault the credibility to consult more than 300 other radio stations. They consulted KGB in San Diego, KFRC in San Francisco and KHJ in Los Angeles. Drake and Chenault took each station to No. 1.”

Because of heavy qrm by another HPAM station from the northern part of Holland, Album AM has switched to the back-up frequency 1251 kHz for the time being. I modified the inverted-L antenna, now it is possible to change the spool within 30 minutes or so, a little antenna tuner adjustment and back on-air on either 846 kHz or 1251 kHz.
When interested, read the last blog (Google Translate is your best friend) at www.albumam.nl.

KYNO Fresno To Move To 940.
One Putt Broadcasting is moving Oldies 1430 KYNO Fresno to its 50kW 940 signal on Monday, July 19.
940 is currently home to Sports “940 ESPN” KFIG. While the call letters will move to 1430, it is not yet known if the Sports format will move the opposite direction on July 19.
One Putt is tying the move to 940 to the 75th anniversary of the launch of the original 1300 KYNO in 1946. The station was Top 40 from the late 50s until 1980. Then KYNO owner Gene Chenault hired programmer Bill Drake in 1963 leading to the creation of Drake-Chenault Enterprises consultancy that oversaw stations such as KHJ Los Angeles, KFRC San Francisco, WRKO Boston, and CKLW Windsor.

Good reception of IRRS – Milano Italy on 918 Khz on the different KIWI-SDR receivers here in my region, as well on my portable Sangean, outside the noise levels indoors etc., in my garden.
Friday, July  the 9 th, I heard the two interesting DX programs: Wavescan from AWR and Glenn Hausers – World Of Radio, between 22.00 -23.00 local time, 20.00 – 21.00 UTC. So just good old hobby radiolistening in one hour. 
WOR scheduled via IRRS Friday 20.30 UTC., Saterday 18.01 UTC. // 7290 Kostinbrod (Sofia) Bulgaria.
Program also downloadable via www.worldofradio.com
Wavescan is also podcasting via the different internet platforms, even via my platform on which my Sangean WiFi radio is running.
Jumping on that time of the day, in the after dark hours, just 9 Kc up, 927 Khz.  WMR from Denmark audible quit good as well.
