Rus-DX Sept. 12 items to WOR iog (2021-09-13)


For decades, international broadcasts from Beijing were broadcast via the medium wave installation at Ürümqi [a.o.1521 kHz/Ed] all the way to Europe. That could be over now.
Since original information on such topics cannot be obtained, only a collection of reception observations compiled by the British DX Club remains. Accordingly, the large medium waves in Hutubi, about 60 km northwest of Ürümqi, seem to have not been active for months. (Google translation from German)

After purchasing the station where her radio career began as a child, Premiere Networks’ syndicated evening host Delilah Rene will relaunch 1030 KDUN Reedsport OR on Monday at 10:30am.

While not disclosing programming plans, the station will emphasize informational elements such as news, weather, and local events. Delilah has been heavily documenting the rebuilding efforts of the station noting that the station’s new studio will be in her former fifth grade classroom at what has recently been repurposed as The Oregon Coast School of Art.

FCC Says 12 Radio Stations Are Dark From Hurricane Ida.
There are also four AMs silent, including Lee Airwaves classic hits “The Pearl” WCJU Columbia, MS (1450) and classic country “The Legend” WHSY, Hattiesburg, MS (950); Shadowlands Communications religious “Sonshine 800” WSHO, New Orleans; and iHeartMedia gospel “Amen 940” WYLD, New Orleans.
Some of the stations reported silent by the FCC may now be back on the air since the Disaster Information Reporting System, or DIRS, offers just a snapshot in time.
The silver lining in the daily update is that more radio stations have checked in with the FCC as being on the air. The latest count released by the agency includes 31 FMs and 12 AMs as of 11am ET on Tuesday.

870, Aug 30 0042-0050+ UT, no signal from WWL New Orleans. CNN has also just reported that the entire city is without power – but you`d think this vital station would have backup generators, contingency plans.
1040, another anomaly at same time, strongest signal on 1040 is dead air, looping from the direxion of WHO Des Moines.
About time to check whether 7505 WRNO can be on the air from *0100
