Central Idaho DX - November 2010

Postby Kaing of Kaings » November 1st, 2010, 11:23 pm

Ell,
Its a good way to start of November DX with 2 new stations. While driving back from the Keith Allred for Idaho Governor mini rally in town, I took a little longer to get home since it was so close to the top of the hour. First, even though it is only 1K, I got 1210 CFYM, Kindersley, Saskatchewan, Canada, Classic Hits. I clearly heard them ID a couple times.

Next I got 1270 KBZZ, Sparks, NV, Talk. I heard a stupid local political commercial for Sharon Angle against Harry Reid. I hope she looses tomorrow.

Harry: " Whoa, Jesus, Check out the butt on that one."

Lloyd: "He must work out."

Ell,
Today was a good day so thank you DX gods.

First, this morning and coming in fairly clear, I got 1020 KCKN, Roswell, NM, Country. It used to be Stuboy's favorite DX station when it played oldies. I heard an ID an everything.

Image

Next, on the way home, I didn't hear an ID but I heard a commercial for a local car dealer in High Prairie, AB and I heard them say here in High Prairie. I got CKVH, High Prairie, AB, Country. Tower at
55.45306, -116.51694

Next I got something I have been going after for a while. I got 1210 KHAT, Laramie, WY, Sports. It's nice to pick up my Alma Mater. Good ID and everything.

Wow, November is turning out good for DX.

First, on my way back from the field just west of Elk City on Highway 14, I got 1240 KLYQ, Hamilton, MT, N/T. I heard a clear ID south of Elk City and they were playing the Glen Beck show (they were raving and having orgasms about yesterday's election). Now I know what your thinking, Elk City isn't Gville but where I got the station was just within 30 miles as the crow flies from Gville. I was barely within the American DX Society boundaries and the interference from KORT was minimal. I've also heard Glen Beck south of Gville which is even closer.

Next I got 1270 KBAM, Longview, WA, Country. I heard them ID

I always liked getting new Canadian stations when I lived in MT.

Ell, you should try for Cuba on 530 Ira. Justin and I got it on the same night.

Today I got one of the few Canadian stations I got from Flagstaff. I got 990 CBW, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Public Radio. It was coming in fairly good this morning.

I dont hear anything on 530, I used to hear weird interference on or below 530 when I lived in Missoula. I heard Cuba when I was in the Keys, but I was only like 100 miles away. hea!

Schweew it stinks like ass in here. Anyway, got 1590 KLFE, Seattle, WA, Religious today. It's a religious channel but they were talking politics. They should get their Tax exempt status revoked.

In other news, I am going to start on the Colorado DX next.

Ell, got another station on my way to work out. Got 1570 CKMW, Morden, MB, Country
