KYW 1060 AM 0734 UTC 7 March 2024
« on: March 07, 2024, 2014 UTC »
Based on a tip from a MW DXing page on Facebook that an SDR near me was picking up KYW, I tried a few times during the evening to hear it. Finally, after trying on a couple different radios and adjusting my indoor loop just right, I heard news mentioning a shooting at a SEPTA stop and more. The audio exactly matched KYW's as heard via a Delaware SDR. KYW's audio stayed solid for more than 10 minutes before fading back out. But it came back again a couple times after 0800 UTC.

This is a new logging for me, and my first from Pennsylvania. KYW's transmitters sit about 2,350 miles away from me, which makes this my second-best MW catch after Cuba.

Nice catch, especially with the 50kw Calgary station relatively close by.

Calgary's big station on 1060, CKMX, left the air last summer, which has left this frequency much more wide open.

KFOY, a Nevada station that goes to just 500 watts at night, is the station I hear most now on 1060. Also, KBGN in Idaho sometimes stays on after dark, even though it's not supposed to.

Whatever conditions made this possible on Wednesday night continue, as I heard KYW again for a few minutes around 0740 UTC last night as well.
