My subscription to Life expired, but I still have a subscription to Mad.

I was monitoring 1420 kHz last evening for nearly an hour listening to three, maybe four stations all down in the mud. Occasionally, one station would overpower the others and then fade back to the pack. But as the top of the hour (2300Z) approached, one station was winning over the frequency: a station playing 1960s oldies.

I suspected that it was WKCW in Warrenton, Virginia, which I had already logged. But there was no station identification, so I hung in there. Finally, at 2300Z, the station identified: WKCW.


But immediately after the WKCW station identification, there was a second or two of silence interrupted by another station identification: WLNA , which was a new one for my log!

WLNA is in Peekskill, New York, transmitting 1 kW 55 miles to my west-southwest. Its signal was about S-1 when it identified, as heard with my C.Crane CCRadio 2E Enhanced radio and Terk Advantage antenna.
