If you are interested in hearing/recording an antenna switch live, WTIC 1080 AM (Hartford) has a noticeable switch every morning at sunrise (currently about 0930ut).  If the switch is before 0930 ut, it goes unannounced during their almost daily half hour morning news program but the station disappears for a few seconds mid-broadcast.  After 0930ut, the OM will announce the switch is coming.  I do not know of any other 50,000 watt station in the northeast that does such a pronounced antenna switch.
