Coast Guard Proposes to Discontinue HF Voice Watchkeeping

 The US Coast Guard has invited comments by January 21, 2021, on a proposal to discontinue HF voice watchkeeping. The proposal appeared on November 20 in the Federal Register. The USCG proposes to cease monitoring 4125, 6215, 8291, and 12,290 kHz, in the contiguous US and Hawaii, due to a lack of activity.

“We believe this change would have a low impact on the maritime public, as commercial satellite radios and Digital Selective Calling (DSC) marine-SSB HF radios have become more prevalent onboard vessels,” the Coast Guard said. “However, we would like your comments on how you would be affected if we terminated monitoring HF voice-only distress frequencies within the contiguous US and Hawaii, particularly if you use HF, but do not currently have a commercial satellite radio or an HF DSC-capable radio aboard your vessel.”

The Coast Guard said it would continue to monitor HF DSC distress alerting for all existing regions and voice distress and hailing from Kodiak, Alaska, and Guam. The Maritime Mobile Service Net (MMSN) on 14.300 MHz remains available to less-equipped mariners who need assistance in emergencies.

Unid 1050 kHz and Religious Program Station List

1050 kHz 11/18 at 1756 EST: End of "Grace to You" 1/2 hour religious prgm, then Pastor George Cook of New Jerusalem House of Prayer in West Chicago, on various Christian beliefs. This was followed by a low modulation YL talking about powering stn down at sunset. During a very brief quiet period heard a CHUM-AM ID (finally got them after all these years) then heard the start of the Radio Bible Study program. My best guess is WROS-AM The Rose out of Jacksonville, but I can't completely eliminate KJBN-AM Little Rock. 

While chasing the ID of this religious station on 1050 kHz logged at 1756-1759 EST on 11/18. I found a list of stations carrying the "Grace to You" 1/2 program. I post the 2020 station list pdf to my Google Drive account, and if interested you can view and save it via this link:
