Recent Verifications

KEDO Longview WA 1400 surfaced a couple of times during KONG17, and two recordings, from Oct 16 and Oct 22, were sent to the station. Prompt email reponse on May 29.
Longview/Kelso is a community of approximately 50,000 people located about 45 miles north of Portland, Oregon.  It sits along the banks of the mighty Columbia River.  The main industry is lumber and fishing.
KSHO Lebanon OR 920 was finally heard on Oct 16, 2007 after years of trying. Friendly email from the General Manager came on May 27. My 750th North American (USA, Canada) AM station.

Newstalk ZB Hawke's Bay, NZ 1278 put up a good signal on Oct 16 with local commercials from Napier. Email response on May 26. My 20th Kiwi verie on MW.

Newstalk ZB Hamilton, NZ 1296 was heard several times last October. Email response on May 22.

WBSM Bedford MA 1420 was heard back in 2006 while visiting Rolf Torvik's excellent QTH at Kalvøya. Email confirmation received on May 21.

CHKT Toronto ON 1430
is one of the dominant stations on 1430, but difficult to obtain a verie from. Friendly email on May 21 remedied that situation. My 40th Ontario verie.

KBRF Fergus Falls MN 1250 hasn't been easy to get through CHSM/WSSP/KKDZ/KWSU, but finally I did hear C&W music on the frequency followed by a weather report which ended with a KBRF ID - all this on Oct 17. A friendly email on May 19 confirmed my reception.

WKCU Corinth MS 1350 is my first in-band Mississippi station. Quite surprisingly they faded up to quite good signal levels on the top of the hour at 0500 on Oct 17, 2007. Brief but detailed email response on May 19 confirmed my reception.
