The Party’s Over!

I had a very productive sunrise drive to work on Friday and logged three new stations with the stock radio in my 2007 Subaru Outback Sport:

- WSJP on 1640 kc transmitting 1 kW from Sussex, Wisconsin, 785 miles to my west-northwest

- WKKX on 1600 kc transmitting 33 watts from Wheeling, West Virginia, 418 miles to my west-southwest

- WHGT on 1590 kc transmitting 58 watts from Maugansville, Maryland, 286 miles to my west-southwest

Sunday evening, I logged a brand new station with the C.Crane CC Skywave:

- WFME on 1560 kc transmitting 50 kW from Queens, NYC, 81 miles to my south-southwest. 

Logging WFME means the party is over! WFME takes over 1560 from the dearly departed WQEW. During the transition from QEW to FME, for about ten days neither station was on the air and I logged four new stations that I would unlikely be able to hear if QEW or FME were on the air. It was fun while it lasted!
