7 Dec 2018 from 0400z 830 kHz WCCO Minneapolis MN coming in very well and sounding like a local into the West Coast with regional accents.
Most times & frequencies posted are only an approximation.
Due to adulteration of the E.N.I.G.M.A. "designators" by others and not a match in the Conet Project they are never used.
