Here are selected part of AMDX-Flashback. I removed those Newfoundland

 some unIDs from November to ask about:
 1380 "WCTL" with mention of FM 93, this overnight on 11/13
 1420 "WTKI Huntsville" legal ID...but they're on 1450, this at 5pm
 1470 Legal ID mentions 3 cities, the last one is "Gardiner" - likely target
       is WLAM Lewiston ME, anyone know if they include Gardiner in the ID?
 1580 "Oldies 1580" likely SE United States around 1800 EST
 Thanks PRM-NJ
 Loggings from Chula Vista, CA (all times ELT):
  610  KAVL  CA, Lancaster  11/20 0300  Noted with slogan "Sports Radio 6-10". 
              Some station on 610.6 causing het.  (TRH-CA)
  680  UNID, 11/16 0653 Was looking for WPTF due to good conditions, got UNID
              talk station u/KNBR for a few minutes.  (TRH-CA)
  680  MEXICO, UNID  11/16 0657 XE anthem.  (TRH-CA)
  680  MEXICO, XELG Leon  11/20 0307  Good through KNBR with ID by man.  Seldom
              heard due to XESON.  (TRH-CA)
  690  MEXICO, XETRA Tijuana  Still taking silent periods, about two nights per
              week, mostly between 0500-0700, but was off at 0303 MM 11/20
              leaving UNID "La Tambora Digital".  (TRH-CA)
  740  MEXICO, XEQN Torreon?  11/19 0716 I'm hearing the "R. Capullo" slogans
              too, no ID yet though.  (TRH-CA)
  960  CFAC  AB, Calgary  11/15 0817 Fair through KOOL w/ads, ID.  Rare here. 
 1000  MEXICO, XEFV Cd. Juarez  11/21 0649 Station was already on, so listed
              0700 s/on is no longer correct.  Don't know yet if this one is
              24h, but signal seems to have improved.  (TRH-CA)
 1010  KKGZ, CO, Brush  11/21 0708-0800, 11/22 0700  Noted with local
              progamming (mostly weather reports) and farm market reports from
              the Brownfield Network.  //KSIR-FM per ID.  New, CO #51. (TRH-CA)
 1010  MEXICO, UNIDs  Still trying for XETX, have noted all kinds of XE anthems
              this week between 0657 and 0705.  One of the stations is unneeded
              XELO, the other(s) may include needed XETX.  Quickly lost due to
              interference and fading.  Also noted an XE anthem at 0757 UTC
              11/16, probably unneeded XEWS.  (TRH-CA).
 1020  KDKA  PA, Pittsburgh  11/21 0652 Good, alone on channel with men reading
              news, lots of IDs.  KTNQ, and maybe also KCKN, running OC at the
              time.  One-time event, or does this mean KCKN is no longer NSP? 
 1230  KYVA?  NM, Gallup  11/15 0628  Tentative with ID by man which sounded
              like "Sports Talk Radio, KYVA".  Don't remember them having this
              format.  Was most unsure of third letter in calls. Any other
              ideas?  (TRH-CA)
 1470  (KLCL)  LA, Lake Charles  11/20 0330  No trace of them on DX test. 
              Really thought this one would make it rather easily.  (TRH-CA)
 1490  KCUZ,  AZ, Clifton  11/22 0600  Caught ID "99.1 KFMM Thatcher and AM
              14-90 KCUZ Clifton." Formerly rare, now semi-regular.  (TRH-CA)
 (TRH-CA)  Tim Hall, Chula Vista, CA  (MSNL77A@xxxxxxxxxxx)  Sony ICF-2010,
              KIWA Loop
