CKNX... not new
920 kc has been my hang-out for the past few nights. WHJJ in Providence dominates 920, but when I null it out with the Terk Advantage antenna I hear a Spanish station just after sunset, which gives way to a country & western station that competes unsuccessfully with WHJJ the rest of the night.
I have been unable to identify the Spanish station mainly because my Spanish is weak.
The country & western station has been too weak to identify until last night at 0220 UTC when it dominated 920 for about ten minutes. Turned out to be CKNX, about 450 miles to my north-northwest in Wingham, Ontario.
I thought CKNX was a new one, but I had already logged it back in June 2013.
Now, if I can only identify the Spanish station! I am sure it would be a new one.
By the way, I was using the Elecraft KX3 with the Terk antenna.
