CY,
Thanks for the heads up on this one.
Had tried for them earlier in the month after a post by East Troy Don but no luck.
Finally heard them last evening just before midnight with a booming signal... Southern Gospel format.
There is a local on the same freq but it was completely covered.
Only my second Arkansas ever in the logbook.
Das Radiobunker somewhere in Michigan

My pleasure, Happy Thanksgiving.  I didn't even see Don's post until I logged.  I was thinking either what a coincidence it was we both caught it or reception peaked for them and we both caught it. I was just turning the dial to see what I could catch in my temporary digs and realized the strong signal coming in was not WBAL by hearing the programming.  Did a little research and matched it to KAAY.  Certainly different dxing on the western fringe of the eastern time zone.  While driving to Cleveland, I was listening to the Ohio State/Michigan State (what a disaster) pre-game & game in daylight on WJR starting from Dubois, Pa westward to Cleveland.  Dubois about 325 air miles from Detroit!
