16.58 ** WKMI-AM 1360 Kalamazoo, MI - Very poor; "AM-1360 and the WKMI App" into ads. Lost.
17.04 ** -AM 1490 - Poor with lots of QSB; YL preacher, sounded like a gospel station. ONE ment of "AM-1490" during her hour-long speech, but nothing IDable. Lost by the TOH. Stumped, I am!
18.00 ** WABJ-AM 1490 Adrian, MI - Barely audible with ID, nx, lost. Rare at night!
18.43 ** WRJN-AM 1400 Racine, WI - Very poor with classic hits, playlist match. Lots of QSB. New catch!
21.02 ** KUOM-AM 770 Minneapolis, MN - Very poor in WJR slop and under WABC; some mx, younger-sounding man, got match to Webcast. Thanks to a tip from other DXers! New catch!
That unid on 1490 definitely has me scratching my head. No urban gospel stations anywhere near here, but I have a feeling that it may have been closer than I think!
