Michigan trio gratefully returns from the dead.

Mitten News has resumed operations on their previously silent trio of 1210 WJNL Kingsley/101.1 W266CS Traverse City and 106.3 WWMN Thompsonville MI.
The signals are currently airing non-stop music from the Grateful Dead. The stations had gone silent in April following the end of their LMA to Blarney Stone Broadcasting. WJNL/W266CS had previously simulcasted Sports “Up North Sports Radio” 101.1 WGRY-FM Roscommon and WWMN simulcasted Rock “Q100” 100.3 WQON Grayling.

Bolshakovo tests.
Tonite the 16 of october I heard the tests from Bolshakovo on 549khz they were fighting for dominance with the Algerian station occasionally dominating. Definately better reception than when they were testing with only 100Kw. Heard a clear radio rossii ident at 18:00 UTC.

Tide adds AM in Tuscaloosa.
Townsquare Media Sports “100.9 The Tide” W265CG Tuscaloosa AL has moved its originating signal from 92.9 WTUG-HD2 Northport to 1230 WTBC Tuscaloosa. 
Classic Country “Catfish 100.1” W261BT has its origination move the opposite direction from WTBC to WTUG-HD2. The swap was likely done to improve national ad sales for the Sports brand as buyers give more credence to translators originating from an analog signal than HD subchannel. The Tide had a 1.2 share in the Spring 2023 Nielsen Audio Ratings, while Catfish had a 0.6 share.

These two latest weeks, Algerian Chaîne 1 has been testing randomly on 153 kHz. Now they are transmitting more often and probably they will took this frequency again. They are now on air!
Additionally this transmission is favouring the Luxembourg effect as the signal is being heard mixed with weaker signal coming from Medi 1 from Nador (MRC).
Chaîne 1 first notices were posted by a few DXers on the Spanish IberiaDX eForum.

Good friends, as I say in the title I heard Algeria this morning playing at 153 khz using a Kenwood R-5000 and a Sony AN-1 antenna. I would like to say that these last few weeks at night I have been able to receive Satelor Antenna from Romania quite well with this antenna but that is at dusk and in the early hours of the night in the morning due to the fact that in Romania it dawns earlier you can no longer hear it, so The surprise was when I reviewed the Onda Larga and I saw sound at 153 Khz and it seemed Arabic, I contrasted it with the Stream de Chaine 1 from Algeria and indeed that was, what was noticeable was that it was not coming out at much power.
Attached is a YouTube video commented by a server:
I found Algeria playing at 153 Khz – October 6, 2023 – YouTube

From here you can make all kinds of conjectures, during the day I tested again and it seemed that there was a carrier but without hearing anything, Algeria may be doing tests to return to 153 khz, on the one hand I I would really be happy to have a new station returning, but on the other hand I would be left without listening to Antena Satelor and its fantastic traditional musical programs that I like to hear so much on Onda Larga. I will report back with what I hear, greetings from La Mancha!

I heard radio Monique on 918Khz  last night at about 9.30 it was a very good signal on the grundig yacht boy radio coming in like a local station and I could also hear it on my old pocket radio two but on the pocket radio the selectivity is on where  as good as it is on the grundig yacht  boy there was a lot of splatter from Radio 5 Live next to radio Monique but on the yacht boy there was no problem at all and it is a very good station good disco music from the 1970s and 1980s well worth a listen.

After several months reported off the air, Radio Nativa (AM 930 kHz), a station that is operated by the signature “Interdifusora S.R.L.”, returned to the air. It has studios in the town of San Justo, La Matanza Partido, and the transmsitting site is in Bosques de Ciudad Evita, in the same area.

The station had been off the air since last June 2023, although its daily programming could be heard through Facebook (watch). Meanwhile, its “sister” station, Radio Republica (670 kHz), remains off the air. The same with Radio La Salada (1300 kHz), which has not been heard on AM for quite some time now.
