WBOB in Jacksonville
I began hearing WBOB at 0516 UTC and monitored 600 kc until 0605 UTC. During that time, I heard voice and Morse Code station identifications, as well as, music (the Price is Right theme song), a variety of tone sweeps and telephone busy signals. WBOB was competing with local WICC and an unidentified Spanish station (it may be Radio Rebelde in Cuba), but I managed to hear "something" from WBOB most of the 49 minutes I monitored 600 kc.
I e-mailed a reception report, which the station already confirmed and promised a QSL card real soon now.
I used my Elecraft KX3 with the 80-meter inverted Vee dipole most of the time, but the signal was so good that I tried listening with my C.Crane Skywave receiver using its stock internal antenna and heard a voice ID loud and clear.
