1. Anyone have any experience/advise regarding AM DXing with a loop inside a
    house with aluminum siding... good, bad, whatever.  We're looking at a
    house with aluminum siding and I want to know if this is a "show stopper"

2. KNWX-1090 and KRPM-770 (both in Seattle) will be swapping frequencies soon.
    I can't get an exact date at this time (no one seems to know)... but ya
    better log both soon if you can.

Subject: First station on expanded band

The September 6th issue of Radio World magazine reports that the first station
to broadcast in the expanded AM band will be WJDM.  WJDM currently transmits
on 1530khz from Elizabeth NJ with 500w daytime only.  This station was chosen
first because it is the largest city in the US without nighttime service.
Transmissions should start in October on 1660khz.  The article did not mention
the power.  It will be interesting to see what kind of DX reports will result.
