WITY Danville IL -980

During the very good conditions towards north america, 7-13th of January this year, I heard quite a few stations on 980kHz and one of them was "98 WITY" which was a new one for me. The station broadcast farm programs, news and easy-listening music.  Both Bill Collins and Andrew Dudich verified my reception and Andrew wrote among other  :

  Thank you for your e-mail. You indeed were listening to 980AM WITY from Danville, Illinois, U.S.A.  The identification you heard is voiced by Max Armstrong, a farm broadcaster who helps us with special farm promotions and remotes.  It is interesting to let you know that we have had a few other letters recently from other DX-ers in Sweden and Finland. Our Northern directional pattern seems to be shooting over the North Pole often lately.  I just responded to another listener in Täby."

He also tell´s me that the transmitter is located in East Central Illinois at Danville, 4 miles west of the border with the state of Indiana.
