Not often I target stations in Puerto Rico, however WCMN is a dominant station on 1280 on Smøla island, so I sent a report to NotiUno. Quick response today.

Heard on October 13 during a short, but intense opening towards New Zealand. Friendly response this morning. Star, previously Southern Star, is part of Rhema Media. Star from Wellington on 657 was also heard, but just barely. The 1494 transmitter is 3 kW and is shared with RNZ Parliament Radio. 15,850 km or just shy of 10,000 miles.

I set up the KiwiSDR with the 310 degrees beverage for WSPR monitoring a few weeks ago. I mainly listen to the 160 meter band. Apparently I'm the northernmost member of the WSPR community. The map below shows the stations received by SWLKQ40LS (which is me) the past six hours. Transmitter power levels mostly 1 or 5 watts.

Another Colorado station from the super, 1000 meter Mount Loran beverage! KJME's current music format is all-Beatles, so definitely a niche market. I couldn't find a recent logo, so below is how they looked like when they ran a non-Beatles format. Thanks OJS & OF for v/s.

KVOR was one of two total surprises within one hour on 740, a frequency where CBX Edmonton AB is an almost total dominant. But once again, the super 1000 meter Mount Loran beverage proved its capacity. Detailed response last night from the CE who's also an active radio amateur.

Caught late October when conditions were auroral and just about nothing at all was heard from North America. My two first MW reports to India since AIR Bhuj 1310 in 1977! Loads of Indian stations were heard these days so who knows, maybe more to come...

Thanks to Ole Forr I was alerted that KSDO, Radio Nueva Vida, was heard early in November. 1130 is usually a potent mix of 50 kW stations from across the continent, but at this time only CKWX was up, and as it faded down a few seconds after the full hour I got a good ID. Quick response tonight. KLTX 1390 Long Beach is more common, and was heard too with a better signal.

WBKK took to the airwaves late 2012, and I heard them a few times that winter, but never with a proper ID. This changed this morning though. Very swift response to my report. WBKK is now part of the catholic Real Presence Radio Network, together with KWTL-1370 and KVXR-1280. Minnesota # 50.
