KCKN 1020 AM 0708 UTC 9 Nov. 2020

Heard this one from Roswell, New Mexico, when I noticed another station with contemporary Christian music in Spanish behind Yakima's KDYK, which runs a similar format. By 0715 UTC, KCKN was dominating the frequency for a couple moments and rose again at 0727 UTC, matching the stationís online stream and the music heard via an SDR in New Mexico.

This runs 50 kW; distance from me is 1,359 miles. (Sorry for the delayed logging of this)

Most times & frequencies posted are only an approximation.
Due to an unwarranted adulteration of the E.N.I.G.M.A. "designators" they're never posted nor ever used.

Yep, type "Groom Lake" into Google, and that area of Nevada comes up as Area 51. I did learn a few things by listening to Art Bell back in the day. Not sure how many of them were true, but ...  :)
