No idea what this might be. Maybe KBOI engineer playing around? I wouldn't think so... [Spectrogram] [Audio Clip] (M37V) update: Turns out someone else recorded these same pips at the same time, but on 770 kHz during a presumed Radio Rebelde program. So, this was probably Radio Rebelde broadcasting the pips. (Tentative) Unid. ?? ?? ?? - 10 Mar 2012 0100 - Reviewing my recordings some more, I note there is another spanish language station underneath the Rebelde programming. I have no idea who this is, and it'll probably be too hard to dig it out. (M37V) (Tentative) KBOI USA ID Boise - 10 Mar 2012 0107 - I am happy to report that the KBOI DX test was easily heard here in Los Alamos despite interference from KLTT Commerce City CO and especially from a 1 kHz tone caused by the high power Radio Rebelde transmitter in Cuba broadcasting on 671 kHz.
Here is the what I heard during the first segment of the DX test:
- Antenna pattern change to non-directional at about 1:07 AM MST, making KBOI audible, where before there wasn't a trace of it to be heard.
- Voice announcement 20 seconds in: "KBOI Boise. We are pausing programming to do some technical maintenance and adjustments. Please stand by. We'll be back shortly."
- 16 upward sweeps spaced about 2.5 seconds apart, starting at 29 seconds.
- Intermittent music starting at about a minute and 8 seconds.
- Morse code "KBOI BOISE IDAHO" 4 times, alternating between a 1 kHz tone and a 700 Hz tone, starting at about 1 minute and 49 seconds. The 1 kHz het from Rebelde made it hard to decode the 1 kHz morse code, but you could tell it was there.
If there was a voice announcement associated with the 2nd segment of the test, I did not hear it:
- Morse code starting at about 1:36 AM MST, same message as before, but repeated only once at each tone.
- 2 upward sweeps
- a collage of pieces of music
- 2 more Morse code IDs
- 5 more sweeps.
- antenna changed back to night pattern making KBOI disappear from my radio.
Also heard after reviewing my 5 hour recording of 670 kHz, a 3rd segment of the DX test! I only heard about 15 seconds worth at about 1:51 AM MST, and it consisted of a Morse code ID on top of some Christmas music ("It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year")
KLTT USA CO Commerce City - 10 Mar 2012 0000 - Heard quite often during WSCR down time was KLTT with religious programming.

[Audio clip #1] is the 10 minute test program. [Audio clip #2] is how it sounded in Lakewood, CO. (M37V) (New - #2, NM #1) 1510 KOAZ USA NM Isleta - 11 Feb 2012 1625 - New station noted on the air today stunting, playing the same few songs over and over with this announcement in between each: "KOAZ and K279BP are One-Oh-Three-Seven, The Oasis. Listen at noon on Tuesday, February 14th, Valentines Day." A bit weak here in Los ALamos, and subject to a bit of splash from hard to null local KRSN 1490. This station took over the KABR 1500 license when KABR went to FM, and changed frequency, callsign, transmitter site and power. Now 5kW-D/4.2kW-C/25 Watts-N, diplexing off one of the towers in the KTBL 1050 array. 68 miles. (M37V) (New - #7, NM #2) 1540 KEDA USA TX San Antonio - 21 Feb 2012 0000 - "This is KEDA San Antonio, Texas. Your Jalapeño Radio Station!" Same ID announcement as when I logged it 7 years ago. Better [audio clip] this time. Night time power has been boosted to 5kW since then, when it was only 1kW. (M37V) (New - #19, TX #5) KZMP USA TX University Park - 17 Feb 2012 1710 - Fading in and getting stronger before pattern change/power change time, with ESPN Deportes programming (in Spanish). I somehow got distracted at the TOH, so I didn't hear the callsign, but this is the only 1540 that carries ESPN Deportes that I can tell. A later announcement gave URL of espndallas.com, then power dropped at 1716. [Audio Clip]. 32kW-D/0.75kW-N (M37V) (New - #10, TX #4) 1600 KRVA USA TX Cockrell Hill - 10 Feb 2012 1900 - Vietnamese language programming. Quick ID in English at TOH, "This is Sixteen Hundred, KRVA Cockrell Hill - Dallas" 25kW-D, 0.93kW-N. Doesn't sound like they're on night power. (M37V) (New - #4, TX #1) KEPN USA CO Lakewood - 10 Feb 2012 1840 - "Fox Sports Radio, The Zone" amid the jumble on 1600. 5kW (M37V) (New - #3, CO #1) 1700 KVNS USA TX Brownsville - 19 Mar 2012 1922 MDT - Playing oldies. Fading in and out and trading places with XEPE. [Audio Clip] 8.8 kW (880 watts night) 860 miles (M37V) (New - #60, TX #14)
