The powerhouse clear channel station from NY at 1560 is gone so that may be a good spot to go as may be little interference at night.February 14, 2021 at 5:49 am #116773timinboveyParticipant

Yeah, gone for now, from that specific location. Dollars to donuts says they’ll be back on the air in the not too distant future. They didn’t sell the license, just the property, and they didn’t forfeit the license either. To quote the news:
“On February 12, 2021, WFME went temporarily silent following the sale of the station’s Maspeth, Queens transmitter site by Family Radio for future redevelopment. Family Radio intends to return WFME to the air upon relocating the transmitter to a new site.”
I wouldn’t get too excited about establishing a new Part 15 on the frequency just yet.

As of last night they were still there and after listening to the preacher for awhile it was finally announced that in “a few days” we will be off so Monday maybe.
When they are off I will see how quiet that spot is at night in Toronto. Should be good as it was a clear channel station. Hope if they come back it is somewhere else lower down on the band or FM, HD or something. Wanted to go there before to still keep close to the 1600+ section to still have good range and be received on all radios but that station booming in before sunset wasn’t good. I am still on 1630 for now.
Wish CKJJ would go also but it’s not that bad.February 17, 2021 at 1:49 pm #116791ThelegacyParticipant
