** U S A. 1510 kHz, Dec 3 at 0637 UT, traditional choral Xmas carols,
with WLAC nulled about 6 Hz away. I`m checking following reports that
R. Monumental, Ecuador was being widely heard in N America, but
unlikely to be this. 0700 English ID mentions translator but I can`t
copy any calls. Another try at 0800: KPLS Littleton CO plus 97.7 and
92.9. NRC AM Log shows that`s the `K-plus` group, with KPLS-FM on 97.7
and K225CZ on 92.9. Unless a daytime cheater, I figured it would
likely be this, due to paucity of 1510 night stations around here;
yet, seemingly unlikely due to tight NNE/SSW pattern both day and
night, so we are very much in a null; out of whack? KPLS is also
remarkable with a much *higher* power at night, 10/25 kW. Night
Own website shows nothing but 1510, and programming, other stuff such
as Radio 74 International, correlate with 3ABN = 7DA TV network.

WLAC is dominant signal here, 50 kW, but direxional night with 3 big
lobes and 2 deep nulls toward Spokane and Boston:

As for the 6 Hz SAH, that does not compute for WLAC vs KPLS, but does
fit recent measurements for WLAC vs Quito at
However it seems that KPLS varies (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
