WNBF Binghamton NY -1290

this is one of the easier  US stations on the QRG here in Sweden and I heard them just after the TOH news as "Newsradio 12-90 WNBF" then back to the C2C program.
 Situated just north of the PA/NY border at the junction of the Susquehanna and the Chenango Rivers.The town is named after a wealthy Philadelphian banker, William Bingham, who bought the surrounding land in 1792. Binghamton has a humid continental climate with cold,snowy winters and warm wet summers. The snowfall is significant, with an annual total of 196 cm.The reason is northwestern storms from the nearby greater lakes/ Finger lakes.
Rick Elliker, C.E. confirmed my reception.

HJDS Ondas de la Montaña, Medellin -1350

was caught with huge signals the 7th of January, fighting with the co-channel station  Oxígeno Ibague.   Identified as "Ondas de la Montaña - La tradicional de Antioquia"  in their programme La Escencia. 
Located in the second largest city in Colombia with a population 2.7 million,at an elevation of 1,500 meters in the northern part of the Andes. Sometimes referred as "The home of Orchids,Parks and tropical birds". With a average annual temp of 22°C it sounds like a heaven for a frozen Scandinavian...
Pablo Escobar,the Colombian drug Lord began his criminal career here, but a nicer guy is Juanes , the famous musician, who can be heard quite often even on Swedish radiostations.
