Nice catch. This is one of my favourite AM stations. It offers a lot of good programming. Myself being 400 plus miles North of Zoomer, it is unfortunately a "night time" station for me. With the current geomagnetic activity, it has been 100% radio black-out in my hemisphere. Conditions are starting to improve today.

Nighttime DX has been pretty much a wipeout here the past week or so with the K Index as high as it had been.
