AM stations with "Limited Time" day-power designations  View Printable Version 
Thursday, March 14 2019

I had promised a few people in the hobby some time back that I would get around to this, and now I finally am. What follows is a list of AM stations that, to the best of my knowledge, are still desginated as "limited time" (my own two cents, first: "limited time" is perhaps the ultimate misnomer, as NONE of these stations are having their day-power hours limited to anything less than a sunrise-to-sunset schedule. If anything, the designation should be what it really is -- "extended time" for each station). In the case of many of these, the information listed is what they were using back in the 1990s, so if anything has changed in the years since with any station, PLEASE feel free to make a correction and/or update.

710 - WEKC Williamsburg, KY and WTPR Paris, TN - both stations sign on at monthly sunrise time of WOR in
New York City
750 - KMMJ Grand Island, NE - goes to day power at monthly sunrise time of WSB in Atlanta
770 - WEW St. Louis, MO - signs on at monthly sunrise time of WABC in New York City
780 - WJAG Norfolk, NE - signs on at monthly sunrise time of WBBM in Chicago
810 - WSYW Indianapolis, IN - signs on at monthly sunrise time of WGY in Schenectady
840 - KTIC West Point, NE - I'm listing this one simply because they sign on with full day power every
morning at 6:00 local time, even if it's before the monthly sunrise time of WHAS in Louisville
850 - KFUO Clayton, MO - signs off at monthly sunset time of KOA in Denver
870 - WHCU Ithaca, NY - goes to night power at monthly sunset time of WWL in New Orleans
1020 - WPEO Peoria, IL - signs on at monthly sunrise time of KDKA in Pittsburgh
1030 - KCTA Corpus Christi, TX - goes to day power (no sign-on announcement!) at monthly sunrise time of
WBZ in Boston
1060 - WHFB Benton Harbor, MI - goes to 2500 watt critical hours power at monthly sunrise time of KYW in
1110 - KFAB Omaha, NE - is, of course, 50 KW all 24 hrs, but goes to its non-directional day pattern at
monthly sunrise time of WBT in Charlotte
1140 - WVEL Pekin, IL - goes to 3200 watt critical hours power (no sign-on announcement) at monthly
sunrise time of WRVA in Richmond
1160 - WYLL Chicago, IL - goes to its night pattern at monthly sunset time of KSL in Salt Lake City
1530 - WCKY Cincinnati, OH - goes to its directional night pattern at monthly sunset time of KFBK in

TP DX in Seattle March 13  View Printable Version 
Thursday, March 14 2019

This was my first TP DXÂ session in many weeks and it was actually quite
interesting. The usual low-band NHK stations were subpar as was
HLCA-972, but some of the Chinese stations made up for it. The best DX
was above 1300 today, with several Japanese commercial stations making
respectable appearances, and VOA producing its best signal in a while.Â
Even the 1602 NHK stations were trying to cut through the domestic splash.

693ÂÂÂ JOAB 1400 time pips & talk poor in CBU splash

747ÂÂÂ JOIB 1415 English lesson poor //828

Any idea who on 1000khz would play a Bruno Mars song at 625pm
mountain/725pm central, 0225UTC ), which is Hot AC pop? They then played
another hot AC/pop song and 5 minutes later signed off entirely or severely
dropped power?

I dont think its XETAC Tapachula and I found a stream for XECSV 1000 which
does appear to play english language music, but couldn't find a previous
