KMED Medford OR-1440

Got a nice verification from Bill Meyer at KMED, who among other things is hosting “The Bill Meyer Show”. KMED was heard in AIH on the 6th of Februar, when I experienced a really good opening towards the Pacific Northwest. No doubt, there’s a lot of interesting stuff to hear on 1440 when CKJR Wetaskiwin AB, which is the station dominiting the frequency, is more or less silent. Bill is, by the way, also a radio amateur with the callsign K7QWN.

KLIN Lincoln NE-1400

February 5 offered somewhat strange conditions on the mediumwave band in AIH. The graveyard frequencies appeared to be totally dead at first, but after very careful (and loooong) listening to the recordings of each frequency, I noticed that klin-logo-pngstations actually showed up, was audible for a short while, and then disappeared again. One of the stations received using this technique was KLIN in Lincoln, Nebraska on 1400 kHz. Actually, KLIN showed up exactly when they delivered a nice ID and announced the upcoming news from “The Award Winning KLIN Newsroom”. Gotcha! Yesterday evening, I received a nice e-mail verification from Kevin Thomas, Co-Host at the programme LNK Today.

WGBF Evansville IN-1280

Yesterday, I received a very nice reply from Ben
Davis, Chief Engineewgbf-1280_towersr at WGBF. The station was logged in AIH in Februar, but the reception report wasn’t sent until last sunday. Besides that, WGBF has been heard a couple of times also in Komagvær. Ben, who also is a radio amateur with the callsign KC9FLC, tells that WGBF first went on the air Novenber 22nd 1923, which makes it just outside the list with the 100 oldest stations in USA. He also tells that he’s looking forward to receive more reception reports from Scandinavian DXers – so go ahead, folks!

KCCR Pierre SD-1240

Got a very nice reply from Dan Meyer, who is the Programkccr_semitransparent
Director on KCCR. He tells that the station has been on the air since the 4th of February 1959. KCCR was heard in AIH the 4th of February this year, which was a very interesting day with very good conditions towards North America. Nice to have yet another graveyard station confirmed!

The Oldest One Hundred Stations in the United States…

Found this pretty interesting list, while looking for information about a graveyard station on 1230 kHz. Decided to share it with the rest of you guys…

Enjoy!

KELA Centralia-Chehalis WA-1470

Yet another of the nice loggings made on February 6 in AIH. Two hours before KEDO-1400 was logged, KELA was heard on 1470 kHz with a huge signal! And just a few hours after receiving the QSL from KEDO, I received a nice e-mail from Ryan Trotter, confirming my reception of KELA-1470! Guess I need to start counting the number of verified WA-stations, it’s quite a bunch now…

KEDO Longwiev WA-1400

February 6 offered some excellent propagation from the nortwest corner of USA, and a number of new ones was added to the AIH55 log. One of them was KEDO-1400, which was heard With an exellent legal ID at 13:00 UTC. Yesterday I received an e-mail from Bruce Pollack and John Mackey, confirming my reception of the station. Nice!
