The last DX of the Clinton administration:

DX Test:

1560 WAGL SC Lancaster – 01/20, 0130 – getting killed by virtually
un-nullable WQEW and even some CHIN-1540 slop, heard only bits of march
music and one mention of “50,000 watts of power”.  QSLed in 1978, so not
needed.  (MKB-ON)

Other stuff:

940 CJGX SK Yorkton – 01/20, 0735 – fair in CINW null, local sports report,
giving SJHL (Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League) scores and local curling
scores, ending with “That’s a look at GX sports”.  In SK they take curling
as seriously as high school football in TX!  (MKB-ON)

1140 WKWM MI Kentwood – 01/17 0100 – Top of hour ID: “From Kentwood,
Michigan, another hour of grooving oldies on WKWM”, into That’s the Way I
Like It by KC and the Sunshine Band.  Duking it out with WRVA.  (MKB-ON)

1570 WWCK MI Flint – 01/16, 0750 – ID as “WWCK AM and FM, Flint” surfaced
out of mush, into ad for Wall Street Journal.  QSLed as WLQB in 1980.

1600 KCRG IA Cedar Rapids – 01/16, 1742 – surfaced over WAAM with ad for
Choice Hotels, promo slogan “news, from the world, your country, and your
town, on Iowa’s News Radio 1600 KCRG”.  (MKB-ON)

1600 WCGO IL Chicago Heights – 01/17, 1924 – poked through nulled WAAM with
ID as “The unforgettable WCGO” into instrumental Love Is Blue.  (MKB-ON)
