GEOMAGNETIC STORM WATCH (G3): Three and perhaps four CMEs are heading for Earth following a series of explosions on the sun this week. Estimated time of arrival: Nov. 30th and Dec. 1st. The biggest of the CMEs, launched on Nov. 28th, could sweep up some of the earlier, lesser ones, forming a Cannibal CME capable of sparking strong G3-class geomagnetic storms with mid-latitude auroras.

Entravision has surrendered the license of Spanish Sports “TUDN 710KBMB Black Canyon City/Phoenix AZ.
The shutdown follows the sale of the 46.4 acre home of its seven tower array to Arizona Metals Corp. in August for $2.5 million. The Canadian company purchased the land adjacent to its Kay Mine Deposit to grow its mines for copper, gold, zinc, and silver.
KBMB was located north of Phoenix with a 22kW day/3.9kW night pattern since 2002. The station has mostly aired national Spanish Sports network programming as part of “ESPN Deportes Radio” from 2006 until its shutdown in September 2019. It would then join Univision’s “TUDN Radio” network in 2020. In between it aired Ranchera/Norteño music under the “Jose” brand name.
