Good DX Night
Posted on November 4, 2011
Got a super signal from WCCO Minneapolis, Minnesota, 830 kHz 50 kW, near 11 PM CDT, the host is a terrific personality, didn’t catch his name, who had an extraordinary raport with his callers. They spoke to him like it was a private family conversation. He knew all their data, like age, ailments, family members.
Then I checked 970 kHz, destined to be the future carrier current spot for KDX, and it was nice and clear.
Went down to 570 kHz, usually very clear, so I could wish to be there with CC, but there is only one guard band on either side, way too tight. Only tonight something interesting was coming in. A tick-tick-tick, like a clock, only none of the tones heard on WWV. But every few minutes two morse code figures:
dit-dash-dit dit-dash-dit. It was saying “R – R.” Where would that be coming from?
