KUWAIT. 17550, March 31 at 2358, Arab music, heavy flutter, then R. Kuwait ID; off when rechecked at 2407. This was a regular last summer, upholding surprisingly late across midnite meridian from weehour Kabd.
Checking HFCC A-11 for Kuwait transmissions to CIRAFs 6 and 7, i.e. contiguous C&W USA west of 90 degrees:11950 22-05 150 kW 350 degrees, DRM in ENGLISH [really on?? 7 hours??]13650 18-21 500 kW 350 degrees, Arabic13770 14-20 500 kW 350 degrees, Arabic17550 20-24 500 kW 350 degrees, Arabic I continue to be amazed that Kuwait even tries to serve this area, at least in Arabic; are there a lot of Kuwaitis around, like in California?There are two other transmissions better suited to ENAm, but designated for CIRAF 27, 28 = Europe:9880 21-24 500 kW 310 degrees, Arabic15540 18-21 150 kW 310 degrees, Arabic [but really in English!]Such a gross error, repeated season after season, forces us to question accuracy of the rest (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
