I wonder if any private stations will step up to take the remaining broadcasters looking for a sw presence? And by that I mean in the likes of WTWW and WBCQ, not another corporate tax writeoff operation.

Very sad for anyone who ever heard SW coming from South Africa because of those transmitters.
An AM radio Boombox DXer.
+ GE SRIII, PR-D5 & TRF on MW.
The usual Realistic culprits on SW (and a Panasonic).
