DXing Drought Concludes

Howdy Gang,

It's very cold here in northcentral Oklahoma. It's been snowing for the last 7 hours at times at abt one inch per hour. Anyway, after a few weeks of empty-handedness, I stumbled across a couple of new stations, both in LAm. Logged on Eton E-100 Sider w/ SAT.

1270, XERPL, Leon, Guanajuato, 0700 UTC, 2/9/11, At first (0645) hrd under KFLC, Ft. Worth, TX, w/ musica romantica, but they gradually faded up until they were completely drowning out the TX sta. Very nice full ID with call ltrs and "La Mas Poderosa" slogan @ TOH. I don't think I've ever had even a hint of this sta here before.

560, R. Rebelde, Moa, Holguin, Cuba, 0840 UTC, 2/9/11, playing light-hearted pop styled mx. Clearly //670 and 620. Also noted a Rebelde outlet on 970 which I cannot find listed anywhere. Does anyone have anything on the 970 outlet?? ULR Sta #732, LAm #138.

Man, I've gotta go climb under something warm....like a blanket, brrr!
73 everyone!

I have RX's on 950, 960, 990... nothing on 970 from NE-USA. Normally I would also check my homebrew log, but I know that 970 kHz is the last frewuency w/o a RX. Might be new, or a domestic station (1kW).

Some further research yields the following:
970 CMHD Camaguay 10kW
970 CMAI Consolacion 1kW
970 XEMH Merida (NW Yucatan Pen.) 5kW

Best three found. The Mexican station J.I.C.

Thanks, Paul. I have to be honest with the group, Cuba confuses the hell out of me. When there's listings of more than one Cuban sta on a given freq, how do we know which one to count, if any?? (Especially confusing when the stations are both listed running the same power!) I've had a long day, I better tackle this issue when I'm better rested, ha ha.

Tnx again, Paul!!

Its been a lot tougher since the hurricanes of 2008. I had what I considered to be a reliable listing of network/location prior. It seems the networks are now more dynamic, and the locations differ depending upon state of equipment. So now, I log them all as Havana at 10kW. If i catch a network ID I report it. There are some changes to the old listings on my homebrew DX log for sure.
