At work, I was setting up a used VIBE Camper for resale, and this unit, from 2018, it had a Weingard Rotatable TV / FM antenna, and was able to hear WCST on the camper stereo. https://radio-locator.com/info/WCST-FM?loc=38.48830%2C-81.80511&locn=25159%20%28Poca%2C%20WV%29  Yeah, less than 1kW, at 15 miles from the TX site. Around 10AM EST, (14:00UTC, I believe.), that station was getting trounced by several stations just popping in and out quickly. No DX ID's, but I heard Arkansas mentioned on one station. By 10:40AM, it was just back to hearing only WCST again. Well, always neat to hear FM DX at work. Oh BTW, those disc-like, King TV antennas, that the newer campers seem to come with? Those are 100% total garbage!

Recently, a co-worker quizzed me on, "What would happen if you were to apply reverse polarity to the Energizer Bunny?". Having no idea, I asked, "What would happen?". The answer is he'd keep coming and coming and coming...
