1630Z 15421 S5 Just above the noise. Heard ID & some music. One of the rare times, its strong enough to listen to.
1658Z 25422 S6 Signal better, but still fluctuating.
1702Z 35423 S8 Signal came up more, still some fading to the noise, but overall much better.

I make notes on paper and log in HFU. After a short while on HFU, I print them out and put them in a binder.

Recently, removed the stock AM/FM radio from my car and put in a Sony AM/FM/SW radio. Sure is nice listening to SW. Even got a pirate on it.  ;D

I listened last week and the signal was mediocre (far less than what the Voice of Croatia used to do on the same freq/xmtr). Other reports of the signal to various places around the U.S. was that it was nice & strong.

Thought I started recording when they were coming in well... only to discover around 0300Z that it wasn't. Had stopped & restarted it a few times as it was hit or miss around sunset. Apparently got distracted. Got the last couple of hours.  >:(

They raised more than their goal and the program was done at 0500Z.

A bit above the high level of noise here, but occasionally fades into it.

Decent signal here. About S7, 35433. First started listening when Belinda Carlisle was on.

2nd show was "party" theme (you missed Eddie Murphy's party song... or you didn't. :) )

2nd show peaked at S8 45444, and degraded to S6 35433.

Off air 0307Z

Wed Feb 27, 2013 8:50 pm (PST) . Posted by: "Glenn Hauser" wghauser Well, for 9 hours, anyway...

At 3:00 p.m. Central Time [2100 UT] on March 1st, KCJJ will cease normal programming and will be taken over by "99 Plus". From 1973 until it signed off at 3:00 p.m. on March 1st, 1994, 99 Plus, under the call letters of KFMH, was an underground rock station based out of Muscatine, Iowa and served a large area of eastern Iowa and western Illinois. It was a station that didn't conform to the rules; they played anything and everything, and the most unique part about it is that it was ALL-request, 24/7. As a result, the station built up a fiercely devoted following, and when it signed off for the final time, over 500 people showed up at their studios to protest (to give you some idea of how much it is still missed, the recently-constructed Facebook page dedicated to 99 Plus has over 1100 likes; not bad for a station that's been silent for 19 years!).

In recent months, KFMH's former general manager, "Captain" Steve Bridges (the current GM and morning show co-host of KCJJ), who said for years that he would never bring the format of the Plus back again to any station, has warmed to the idea of resurrecting the Plus as an internet-only station. To operate it, however, he has stressed that it will take $20,000 for 1 year's worth of programming, and that the money would have to come from public contributions. Since Bridges made the announcement in January, he has raised over half of the total required. Friday's temporary switchover will essentially serve as a fund-raiser to try to rake in the rest, and will feature many of the same DJs that were an important part of 99 Plus back in the day. At Midnight local time, the carriage will turn back into a pumpkin (IMHO), but it's hoped that the interest generated by this will help to bring back 99 Plus on a permanent basis online. The audio from these 9 hours
will not only be broadcast on 1630 AM, but will also be streamed on KCJJ's website:


And you can find out more about 99 Plus here:


I hope you'll be able to check out KCJJ's webstream at some point during these 9 hours and get a taste of what I so enjoyed listening to during my years in eastern Iowa in the late 1980s and early 1990s. :)

So would they rename it 1630 plus?? KCJJ`s normal format is both talk and AC, per NRC AM Log. In DXLD 12-48 we had reports about it dropping AM stereo (gh, DXLD)

Cool, thanks for digging that up.

Wonder if they were playing the birds last night (aka early morning GMT) or that was someone else.

The birds themselves are not that interesting, but love the cuckoo in there and its got me intrigued.

Last night was a bit of fun over in NL. Also ran across an YL numbers station in English (E11?) which was a nice little surprise. Haven't heard English numbers station in a looong time. Very bored of V02/HM01. Was perusing priyom.org and became motivated to search for English numbers. By pure luck stumbled across her on 5779 USB. Was absolutely thrilled. Cuckoo & English numbers makes a good oddball night.

Now (29-Feb 2049Z) on that same remote, same freq, another AM signal. Playing some rap like noise. Moderate signal strength.

Listening to the Twente WebSDR in the Netherlands and stumbled across 6985 AM. For about 15 minutes so far, all it has been are sounds of a bunch of birds with a cuckoo off in the distance.

Signal was decent at the top of the hour, but now has faded a bit.

Couldn't even pick up the carrier here at home.

Faded out at 0425Z.

Tuning around on the Twente WebSDR in The Netherlands, found a YL in English with numbers on 5779 kHz USB.

Went to my TS-690S with a G5RV here at home and could just _barely_ hear her.

Found her around 0322Z and was off a few minutes later.
