2400 KHz ID 3rd Harmonic WDSC AM 800
« on: January 30, 2021, 0359 UTC »
2400 KHz - STRONG signal - the "harmonic" AM BCB station I have been hunting the last few days is very loud tonight - right now. 

*** UPDATE 02:17 UTC / 9:17 PM US EST - WDSC AM 800 Khz fundamental frequency - 2400 KHz third harmonic frequency - Dillon SC - Third harmonic with 100% solid ID and very good audio ***

Sports talk - signal has been solid for (@ 03:59) well over an hour now, solid ID tonight. 3rd order harmonic of 800 KHz broadcast station WDSC. Over the last fifty years I have only ID'd less than twenty of these domestic "harmonic" stations. After I make ID - I always contact the station and usually within days they fix the problem. Better log 'em now!

This is a 30 second video of the WDSC AM 800 signal on their third harmonic of 2400 KHz as received tonight in Florida. Cannot imagine that they have more than a few watts on this frequency but folks across the Southeast US could hear them tonight - and - still can even now at 03:15 AM US EST ...
