Format flips/brandings

On this page, you will find station information: frequency changes, new stations, silent stations and the like. Newest information is at the top. It is kept here, then moved to the format archives page, after the last monthly posting. Preference is given to midAMerica and/or where reporters/contributors are. What is reported is the principal format of said station. ALL ENTRIES are double sourced.
* denotes outside of midAMerica listings, but might be of interest, or reported by a DX-midAMerica reporter.
@ denotes usage on AZ,NV and NM GY listing.
+ denotes usage on NorthEast GY listing.
x denotes usage on Sun Coast/Gulf GY listing.
[vd] verified by stn via e-mail [vd:e], phone [vd:p], steaming/broadcast[vd:s] [vd:b] or [gr] gradual change, not an instant flip.
Now On/Silent list is updated monthly.
20+ sources are checked for what is seen below. "Unreliable sources" (some message boards, misleading websites) are not even bothered with! There are people whom it is beneath their dignity to answer a simple question, and there are very decent people contacted: webmasters, station personnel, owners!
Stations on occasion, are contacted, and do not answer repeated requests or phone calls on operation. Sad!
If there is a format change in your part of midAMerica, feel free to contribute! Format information may be added by e-mailing to the above link. Rumors, gossip or "possible flips" are just that and not posted. Stunting and/or All Christmas flips are not reported. 5th harmonics don't matter. To a few they do.
There is information held on other stations, with possible flips, but is not listed herein as information is not verifiable, thus not listed.
NOTED means station (usually "-LP") NOTED in travels. Probably not new info, per se, just verifying what was noted.
Input is acknowledged, greatly appreciated and a thank you is sent. Please check the filtered/spam/junk folder(s). E-mails are NEVER, EVER forwarded.
A Full Power simulcast is shown as // (IE:1400 WPOW or //101 WIOI.) Information on translators is added at will, though not a priority, and might have happened earlier than posted. Translators added show a plus (+) sign, translators moved or deleted show a minus (-) sign. EXAMPLES: +96.7 K222BL Laramie. -92.3 K222BL Laramie. Call changes are from FCC. If the call change is not used, go to a safe zone!
If there is a mistak, er, mistake, it happens! Never good to toss the first stone, though there are those who might say "I felt this thrill going up my leg" at an error. Apologies. There's more to life! Way more!
More detailed information is available for locals-graveyards, markets, and the Cayman Islands!
DX-midAMerica has been tracking flips and changes since 1981. So there!
Information shown is public information. Stations are monitored through websites, broadcasts, streaming or road trips! Errors are possible. Accuracy/timeliness not guaranteed. Too, it all depends on what the meaning of "is" is!
Concerning slogans, it might say "107.1" on the logo, for non radio types, but "107-1" on station's audio. THAT is what is listed. That's that!
It has been brought to the author's attention several times, that this site/effort has been misquoted. On being misquoted, maybe the person was careless, in a hurry or has an agenda. Mistakes can and do happen, yet when they happen over and over, gotta wonder. It's best to look at this page vs. what is quoted elsewhere. That is a fact!
Others with information: MN/Ellis WI/Noonan not included here. Other sites? info@DX-midAMerica.com You'll be credited, or remain anonymous.

Streaming stations are shown giving website information. Station SLOGAN is in "QUOTES" and other information, of interest added at will after date. Duh!
