Well, good for them, albeit that they are on the West Coast.   http://www.radiosurvivor.com/2020/07/14/dx-adventures-at-1700/
Must be very different that what we hear on the East Coast.
I was asked, yet another weird question, of how I would like to be buried, when I finally bite the big one. The answer was actually pretty easy. Face-down, like a certain historical figure in the late 1980's, (I will not mention who, but some of you will get it, and that's enough.) Why??? It would be a burial that will satisfy everyone: (1) My enemies will say that it will show me where to go. (2) On the same point, I can have my enemies kiss my butt. (3) It will temporarily give someone a place to park a bicycle. See??? A WIN / WIN for everyone.

As a West Coaster, I usually hear XEPE on 1700 kHz. I'll let the author of the article know they do indeed English music -- especially '80s tunes -- at night sometimes.

I also have heard KBGG out of Des Moines on that frequency. Overall, however, the X-band isn't very populated in this part of the country.

Well, you must have done so, since Radio Survivor just did a 'Follow-Up',     http://www.radiosurvivor.com/2020/07/20/confirmations-of-1700-am/

WRCR in NY was the dominant station here on 1700 before it went silent.  Now most nights KBGG  "The Champ" sports-talker in IA is heard here in Michigan.
Can sometimes catch WEUP in AL quite clearly in the morning at their sunrise when they go to 10 kw.  Have never been able to confirm the FL station or the TX stations.
Das Radiobunker somewhere in Michigan
