** RUSSIA [non]. The USA --- Radio "Komsomolskaya Pravda" now and in America! From 25 April, the programs of radio "Komsomolskaya Pravda" are broadcast on medium wave (1110 AM) in the city of Sacramento, California, USA. This became possible thanks to cooperation with local partners of the "Komsomolskaya Pravda" media-holding "Afisha". They publish our newspaper, and also held the Russian-speaking radio station. Here is the BBC radio 2 hours per day given by the best programs of radio "Komsomolskaya Pravda". All in Sacramento population of about 200 thousand Russian-speaking population. (OnAir.ru via RusDX April 29 via DXLD)
K.P. is still around? Komsomol was the Commie youth organization. Wilipedia indicates it stopped circa 1991y: ``The Communist Union of Youth, usually known as Komsomol, a syllabic abbreviation from the Russian Kommunisticheskii Soyuz Molodyozhi, was the youth division of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union.``
NRC AM Log 2011-2012 shows for 1110 in the Sacto area: KLIB, Roseville CA, address in Sacramento, 5000/500 watts, Spanish/ethnic, SILENT as of 4/2006! ``Radio Multicultural``.
Searching the IRCA archive on KLIB: reports of it ``back on the air`` in April 2007, --- but on the NRC Silent Station List as of May 2007. And nothing since March 2008 when Don Kaskey heard it in San Francisco.
FCC shows its license expires Dec 1, 2013, and it is not on the current Silent AM Station List (useful to bookmark) at
Wikipedia says: ``The station was taken off air in April 2006.
Companion AM Station KFSG-AM (1690 kHz) was licensed for operations in 2001  as part of the FCC's expanded AM band program. At the end of the 5 year period, the licensee (Way Broadcasting) would have to either discontinue operations in the expanded band or return the original license (KLIB in this case) and cease operations. The station went silent in 2006 and removed its directional phasing equipment to comply, but also filed a request to retain both licenses. On February 20, 2007, the FCC granted a temporary authority to resume operations using a lower power non-directional antenna pending the final disposition of the expanded band license issue.``
So can anyone confirm KLIB is really again back on the air now, and partly in Russian? And at what time? Doesn`t seem to have own website (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
