Thanks, Pinto.  When I first heard the ID, I thought it was out your way - Cheboygan.  Then I heard Augusta and Maine commercials.  Yes, I recall your post about trying to DX Maine.

Thanks for the heads up on the Maine station.
50 kw WYLL Chicago pretty much rules 1160  here even
covering more local WCXI, however, there are occasional
deep fades so it may be possible to catch WSKW on sunrise skip
after they go to 10 kw daytime full power
