"Clear Channel" 1700
Most of the time, all I hear on 1700 is WRCR out of Ramapo, NY. However, WRCR was missing from my top-of-the-hour recording at 0900 UTC today. Instead, I heard Radio Mega WJCC running 1 kW out of Miami Springs, FL, 1666 miles to my south-southwest.
1700 is a great frequency for long haul DX. It's a 21st Century "clear channel" with only six stations licensed for 1700 in the USA. Except for WRCR, they are all over 800 miles away.
Equipment used was an ELAD FDM-S2 SDR receiver and an 80-meter inverted Vee antenna.
