106.7 WPPN drowning out a local!
« on: September 11, 2012, 0954 UTC »
I never thought I'd see the day that somebody drowned out WTDY in Madison.  Scanning the dial this evening made me rethink that notion!  WPPN, "Pasion" out of Des Plaines, IL has WTDY buried, and has since 0045 or so when I first tuned in.  Further checks early this morning has it even clearer than it was before I went to bed.  Wow! 

I've also had 96.9 WWDV out of Zion, IL, a couple of other unidentified weaker signals and religious broadcasters, and two northern Wisconsin stations that I normally can't hear unless I'm significantly further north of my current QTH - one of them is WIFC out of Wausau, which is a longtime favorite of mine!  Talk about good DX! 

I wonder how long this'll last... hopefully a while!

QSL's appreciated 

There's a geeklady turning that dial!
