WURD on 900
The top of the hour is the most productive time to nab a new one, so I started listening at 2255 UTC last night and heard two or three stations depending on which antenna I used and which way they were swung (for the two that I can swing).
Once I identified CHML, I nulled it out with my two swinging antennas and I could hear a station down in the mud, but in the clear that was either to my northeast (WGHM?) or southwest (?).
There was no station identification at 2300, but I hung in there and was rewarded a minute later with the I.D. of WURD transmitting 1 kW in Philadelphia, 180 miles to the southwest. I was using the Elecraft KX3 radio and Terk Advantage antenna at the time of the I.D.
