You know there is a real WKAN 1320 in Kankakee IL.
Drake R8, Kenwood R-2000, Panasonic RF-4900, Sony 2010, Realistic DX440, Grundig Satellit 500, 7mhz backyard dipole, Mt Prospect, IL 20miles (32km) NW of downtown Chicago. I have been using online receivers because of strong data hash interference in my neighborhood that I believe is caused by Uverse squeezing up to 100mb/sec through ordinary pairs of wires. I don't have Uverse but neighbors do. williamhassig@yahoo.com

0220 UTC: Sounds like an ad of some kind. Not super readable, but the signal's staying above the noise way out here near Seattle!
0221 UTC: Music. Can't quite hear the song well enough, but it's a female vocalist.
