It sounds like your hearing 1140 out of Canada and not KGEM. I hear that station all the time and they always say 1140 AM and today they were playing countryish music. Listen for the weather and if they talk about temps below 0, you are getting Canada.

I thought that was a possibility, the first night I heard it I heard 2 other Calgary stations so its definitely not out of the question that I can hear that far. Its hard to hear what they are saying when the music isnt playing because KHTK is so much louder.

Ell Got a couple of stations today. First off I got 820 KUTR, Taylorsville, UT, Crappy Christian Contemporary.

Image

Next I got 1110 KFAB, Omaha, NE, N/T

Image

I heard a news station on 1290 which could be Missoula or Pendelton OR but I am not sure which one it is. I also hear a country station which is probably Pocatello. Need to confirm these.

Keep trying 1290, you will eventually hear KGVO. Also try 1370 for KXTL Butte, MT. I heard it in WA so you can definitely hear it.

Two new today

Postby Kaing of Kaings » December 22nd, 2009, 8:07 pm

Ell got two new stations today.

Fist off in the morning I got 1530 KFBK, Sacramento, CA N/T. It was coming in fairly strong.

Image

Next up I got 1290 KOUU, Pocatello, ID, Country. It was coming in fairly clear during the lunch drive.

Image

I thought I heard 1320 KXRO yesterday from Aberdeen WA but I need to confirm that one. There was some jumble going on. Hea.

Yesterday on the 23rd, I picked up 1580 KGAL, Lebanon, OR, N/T. This is kind of surprising since it is only a 1K station but I heard it fairly clear.
