Timing is everything!

Late yesterday afternoon, I was listening to WWKB (nee WKBW) from Buffalo on 1520 kHz. I could hear a weaker station under WWKB. Turning the external antenna about 90 degrees nulled out WWKB and I caught WCHE in West Chester, PA just as it was signing off. When the Star Spangled Banner ended, I heard an even weaker station: WTHE in Mineola, NY.

Here are all the particulars:
  • 2013-01-05 2159Z on 1520 kHz, WCHE in West Chester, PA, running 1 kW, 182 miles away, S-2
  • 2013-01-05 2201Z on 1520 kHz, WTHE in Mineola, NY running 1 kW, 71 miles away, S-1
My receiving equipment: C.Crane CCRadio-SW and CC twin coil ferrite antenna.
