The 30th of October last year I had them with a loud and clear signal identifying as "This is Faith Talk 1500 WLQV Detroit - A service of Salem Communication".
The station´s 50 kW daytime and 10 kW nighttime signals beaming north-northeast with a narrow antenna pattern makes them a usual guest here in Scandinavia. Airing Bible teaching and other Christian talk programs.They often use the slogan "Life Changing Talk Radio"

At midnight the 31st of October last year I noticed a interesting signal on 1300AM which turned out to be a new one for me when they idenfied as "...to Americas best...on AM 13 Hundred KOLY Mobridge - a member of the Dakota Radio Group". Both Stn Mgr Dawn Konold and Gen Mgr Mark Swendsen verified my reception swiftly.
Mobridge is a small city with a population of 3500 located on the eastern bank of Missouri River. A telegrapher´s dots and dashes gave Mobridge its name when the town was formed as railroad crews were building the railroad bridge across the Missouri river. He ended his telegraph transmissions with M.O.Bridge.
V/s Jessenia Zelaya de Mejia told me that they been on air 52 years now with its christian programs and for the international audience its possible to tune in at hrvc.org instead of shortwave.

Was a pleasent surprise to receive their signals during the Hurricane Sandy in late October with a ID as "You listen to continuous coverage of Superstorm Sandy on WILK". The station is a full time relay of the programming of the WILK News Radio-980 with a daypower of 5kW and 0,5kW at night. Maybe they were on STA emergency operation with daypower this night?
Located in eastern part of the state covering West Hazleton -Wilkes-Barre-Scranton area.

That sounds like our station. It’s hard to believe but this is the second account of our station reaching across the Atlantic in the last 7 days. Another radio enthusiast sent a clip of the same day’s broadcast received in Stockholm, only about 90 minutes apart from your clip. It appears the conditions were just right that night.
The "another radio enthusiast" from Stockholm was my friend Torolf Johnsson who was active the same night.
This has been on my "most wanted list" since the X band expanded. Have heard them only two times in 2007 and 2010. Never got any response of my reception reports until Program Director Steve Murray verified my f/up a few days before Christmas last year.
