Hey 'Baggins.

 "Interesting" how this one and your other catch on 1512 are running a bit off of the normal 10 Kc spacing to "squeak" into operation against  licensed stations on 1510/1520 and 1630/1640.

A great idea if these pirates only have the hard core Dx'er in mind for an audience, especially if they give advanced notice online. Not so good for  uninformed "commoners" that are stuck with 10 Kc stepped digital receivers though.

The "people" I "heard of" and also a "friend of mine" always  ran straight up on X band unoccupieds ,dead  on the  10 KCs. It got   better audience numbers  than a split would have, at least for the "causal"/non Dx'er listeners (which is going to be a MUCH larger demographic).

Only in America as they say. .!

'It's better to give than receive' so why Rx when you can Tx!

Hey Stretch.

Yup. A lot of things done differently here.

Like no LW broadcasting.

I worked with 9 Kc while I lived in Europe, but like 10 Kc spacing a bit better.

10 kHz spacing is the standard in all of the Americas, North, Central, and South, not just the USA & Canada. There used to be a number of stations operating on oddball (often ending in 5 kHz) frequencies, especially in the Caribbean, which made them easier DX targets, but they have since moved to 10 kHz Channels.
