WTAM 1100 AM Cleveland - dual broadcasts/dead air
« on: April 17, 2023, 1605 UTC »
While in Greater Cleveland visiting family for a stretch, I decided to turn on WTAM 1100 am for local news while heading into bed.  At 0200 utc on Mon Apr 17, two separate newscasts ran simultaneously for 4-5 minutes.  Then a prolong silence, could not tell if carrier was still present but no other stations filled void.  I was going to attempt Dxing other stations but feared waking others.  Then commercials played for a couple of minutes, then silence again for awhile - I fell asleep before resolution but emailed them this morning.
