A possibility is WRTZ out of Roanoke.  It transmits its classical / oldies format at night at 72 watts omni-directionally but its only about 120 miles from your location.

Just a thought.

There may be a connection if it is Cousin Brucie you were hearing.  The Coz is doing his last show on Sirius/XM tonight.  There is rumor that the 85 year old Bruce Morrow may be returning to his 13 year (1961-1974) home at WABC 770 am NYC, which is recently under new ownership, for a Saturday night weekly gig.

...@ 12:43 UTC in what seemed to be CW  in short 1 character bursts spaced about 10 seconds apart on the FRG 7700.   Strange that I got it on AM Narrow but nothing when switched to the CW mode.   Any ideas?

Equipment / Re: The Best Active Loop Antenna 2019 = MLA-30?

For example, if we look at NRD-545, it scores all the top on all the aspects, but it used to cost about 2k? Even used ones go for almost 1k easy.


If you can find a JRC NRD-545d for $1,000 please let me know .
Thanks
