Ellll! im back online after the move. Anyways, KFI is still broadcasting on its back up antenna cause their main antenna was destroyed in a plane crash. Even 90-100 miles away like I am, KFI fades a bit, seems directional now. Anyways no low desert dx has occured yet cause i have been in sacramento, but hopefully this week I can dx again. El I will be in SF this coming weekend.

I am going to schedule a LAR DX for tonight since I have finished my HW. I will try and see if there is anything else on 640 that I might be able to hear now that KFI has been crappy lately. I will report to you, the results when I get back in about 10-30 minutes. (8pm MST).

NEW STATIONS from LAST NIGHT'S DX

Postby TheStuboy » April 5th, 2005, 9:02 am

KSOO Sioux Falls, SD 1140 AM, a 10/5 DIR station
and
KOMJ Omaha, NE 590 AM, a 5/5 DIR Station.


I was able to record IDs for each, as well as a new ID for WIBW Kansas, WBBM, KNZZ, Texas' Mighty 1090 KVOP, and a sample of that g station on 530 from the caicos islands.

Cool, nice audio. Still no time to dx with unpacking and all. I listened to AH on KFI last night, if I turn my radio n/s it barely comes in. super weak now. Will maybe be able to dx wed night, but for sure thr night.
