"Radio station from Chicago IL. Providing local info and also conducting research on Geo/astro physical phenemomna. We also provide advanced forcast information on weather and earthquakes."

"Launched on April 15, 1995
In Peoria Il.
Honestly this was before my time. (before Gava) DJ Storm started W807 in Peoria Il. When he started noticing that certain things in nature were co-insiding with things man had done. With no access to the power grid info, DJ decided to use the next best constant. AM broadcast."

I went to their Facebook page. Pretty interesting, but kinda dumb to list their QTH. Maybe they're legit, or a community / school station.  Hard to tell from the page.
+ Equipment: Yaesu FRG 100B, Kenwood R-1000, Yaesu FRG7,
+ Antenna: 75' dipole, height 21', running north and south.  Chicagoland area.
