WJR 760, 0630z, 8/18/2013

Was tuning the TRF around and had a surprise reception of 760 WJR Detroit, which is fairly rare to hear in Washington state, at least on the west side of the mountains.  I got an ID at 0627z.  Pretty cool to hear -- was even audible barefoot.

The usual Realistic culprits on SW (and a Panasonic).

Congrats!  That's a great catch from Washington!  Working the opposite way, Washington is equally tough to hear from Michigan.

Agreed, nice catch. I keep trying to catch KIRO 710 Seattle. You'd think at 50K it would be an easy catch on a good night. But for some reason I've only caught that station once.
