WCRN AM 830
« on: February 11, 2019, 2146 UTC »
WCRN AM 830 Worcester MA playing an Oldies format...  never logged this one here in Michigan before last night @ 0305Z.
The 830 spot is usually dominated here by 50kw WCCO Minneapolis MN.  However, last night
WCRN was completely covering WCCO (albeit, there were several deep fades during which the
MN station could be faintly heard).  WCRN is also 50kw but what makes the strong reception here so
unusual is that their nighttime pattern mostly warms up the Atlantic Ocean being beamed directly from me.
Anyway, enjoyed listening to the Oldies for about an hour.

If you try in a month, you might just hear the Red Sox, they are an affiliate.  WCRN prevents me from receiving WCCO.
Nice catch.

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.

That's fun. I'm 15 miles from WCCO, so no chance I'll hear anything but them, even with a loop nulling them out.

Hybrid as in HD?

I can hear WCCO quite well here in the southeast corner of Wyoming.. VERY well.. and I've never heard HD Hash on 820, 840 nor have I had the HD light show up on 830

Fairly strong signal into Michigan this morning... did not see any digital sidebands on the SDR.
