Wow that's nasty. Also, doubt if they notice much, I called in one time to let them know they were playing two different shows on the same freq and it took several minutes for them to bother to get up and fix the feed.

Sometime in the early months of 2017, WWCR was transmitting on 7490 (a frequency they have in the morning in North America, around 1200-1500 IIRC) at around 0100z, on top of WBCQ. It was particularly annoying because WBCQ was airing a one-time broadcast of Radio Mi Amigo. I found WWCR's phone number and tried calling, but since it was something like 7:00pm Central, nobody answered (and even worse, you couldn't leave a message), so I ended up sending WBCQ an email letting them know about WWCR's malicious interference. They rebroadcast Radio Mi Amigo another night.

Long story short, at night there's either nobody on duty to mind technical things at WWCR, or else they're there but not paying any attention at all. Probably the former.

i would say its financially driven because many SWBC stations are remotely operated and/or fully/semi automated and cant afford to pay someone to babysit a TX site.
