WLIM AM 1580


Station number 164 in my AM radio log had a solid S-5 signal when I found it at 1580 kHz on Wednesday afternoon (October 2, 2013). The only problem was that the station was playing back-to-back 1960s-era oldies without any announcements or commercials that could give me a clue as to what I was hearing.

I listened for 15 minutes hoping that there would be a station identification at the top of the hour and I was rewarded when a voice broke in at 1903Z informing me that it was WLIM in Patchogue, Long Island, New York (see Bing Maps screen capture above). WLIM was transmitting 10 kW 49 miles to the south-southwest.

Receiving equipment used was the stock radio and antenna in my 2007 Subaru Outback Sport.
