WIOU Kokomo IN -1350

Was a pleasant surprise in the morning  6th of November. The station appeared a few minutes around the TOH  identifying as "..for your ears broadcasting from a .... studios, this is Newstalk  Sports 13-50 AM WIOU Kokomo" .The most common stations here are CKAD and WOYK but this morning the conditions where focused more towards the midwest.  I swiftly received two emails from Rob Rupe,P.M. and Chris Lowry Sports Director confirming my reception. Rob writes that they use a directional  N-NW antenna  to protect others on 1350 kHz with a power of 1 kW during the dark hours.

KBYR Anchorage AK-700

The 7th of November 2009 was one of the  best DX day ever towards Alaska here in Moklinta. 13 AK stations was heard in a few hours time, I doubt I ever will  experience such a day again here in the south of Sweden.
On 700kHz I caught the announcement " this is the best of the G. Gordon Liddy show on Smart Radio AM 700 KBYR"  after the 1300UTC news !  At the same time 5 of the 6 Anchorage stations was received, only KTZN-550 passed through my net that day...
The station was a little tricky to get verified, but finally I got an answer from Bill Sigmar, G.M.
