At 0145 UTC WTOB Winston Salem NC 1470 khz with a very nice signal playing oldies at supposedly 49 ? watts at this time possibly leaving the light on.. Numerous ids
Approx 250 miles.
Confusing because FCC lists WTOE near Asheville on 1470 and WTOB on 980 although web sites mention WTOB oldies 1470.

Right now on 1470 many WTOB ids / WTOB 96.3 /980/1470
it is clear channel graveyard playing The Eagles/ already Gone followed by Fleetwood Mac / hold me
One other talk station fade up on occasion.

Panasonic RF 951

Want to listen to radio stations from around the world? It's as simple as zooming in or out, turning the globe with your cursor and clicking on the green dots. You can also save favorites. This is an ongoing project from a Dutch non-profit. :D

I noticed something interesting last night. KCLF 1500 now isn't listed as operating overnight on both the F.C.C. database as well as Wikipedia. Just the other day they were showing their nighttime power as 18 watts and 1kw daytime. Now it only lists daytime operating. It was definitely them, as they I'ded twice.?

WLIK 1270 Newport,TN heard briefly around 11pm CST. They run 500 watts overnight with an oldies format. Currently getting a Cuban station on frequency. This is typical for this area if your antenna is facing northwest/southeast.

No Cubans on 1270 that I know of, not used by the Cuban govt.
http://www.bamlog.com/cubalist.htm

In most cases to identify them besides the many Id loops, the audio will match either 4765 kHz or 5025 kHz shortwave or R.Enciclopedia ( reliable here on 530 AM most nights .)
Most of the other station names maybe with exceptions , run the same audio as above

Davep, KCJJ is 1630, listening to it now here in Indiana, c. 400 miles. Surprised it reaches here from its patterns, amazed it reaches you.

Oops , yes thanks! Generally no problem hearing it. Only two other stations on 1630 helps.
I'm sure it goes way east of here.

Last evening about 11:00 pm I plugged in my
Carnation Pink 1961 General Electric Model T125A AM
I was picking up quite a few stations and could hear WSM 650 AM in Asheville. That is about 308 miles from my location in Horse Shoe. I decided to put the
AN200 Antenna AM Radio Tunable Passive Loop Gain AM Radio right behind the set on the kitchen table. It made a major improvement of the loudness and clarity. So I would say all in all the AN200 was a worthwhile investment I believe I paid about 30 dollars for it

I have the Grundig AN-200, two Selec-A-Tenna's, and a homebrew 23 inch loop, which due to it's size, is the best performer.

Regardless though, with tunable loops I have found that placement makes a difference, when trying to either bring a desired station up out of the mud, or null out a competing station or RF noise.

Oftentimes placing the loop along one side or the other of the radio works best, and moving it away a few inches can also cause an improvement, whether alongside, or behind. Angling the loop can also effect reception or nulling.

I don't think you need the telescopic antenna for a station in the expanded BCB. The internal ferrite loop should be sufficient, and of course rotating the set for best reception.

Don't know what's going on in the atmosphere tonight, but conditions seem really lousy. My usual dx stations are very weak. Anyone else experiencing this Saturday night?

Thanks Jason. After reading the comments on QRZ, that was mostly a problem on 80m. Actually when I was an hour west of here earlier this evening I did hear some buzzing on AM in the car. That could have been them, or power line noise I normally get in that area. But here at home AM sounded like it had 20db of attenuation on my radios. Someone contacted Eglin and was told that QRM will be over by Monday. Good news for us FL folks!
