WLCO is back

Currently simulcasting U.S.103. Sounds louder than it has in years. Now, if they could just fix 1470...

I had to run to Lake Orion yesterday, and I was certain WLCO had flipped to Sports, as ESPN 1530. To my surprise, I was hearing 1530 in Cincinnati, like a LOCAL signal, around 11:00 AM! When I left around 1:00 PM, WCKY was gone, and WLCO was there. This is definitely outside of CH, so I was surprised to hear WCKY overtaking WLCO.

WLCO BOOMS IN near the Straits between Middays and CH. It's too far from WCKY. The E layer is much lower during Daytime Skywave and favors distances less than 250 miles or so. The E layer gets higher as you get closer to SS and SR, and WCKY is favored because it is 50 kW.

Since most Canadian AM stations and a lot of US AMs have disappeared, Daytime Skywave DX is fun, like AM DX in the 1920s and 1930s, when stations like WREO Lansing, with 500 watts full-time, got QSL requests from MONTANA. It was only on for a few years.

In 1927, WREO was 500 watts on 1300 kHz. There were only five stations nationwide on 1300 at the time.

Is THAT where they got the idea for the 486-SX?
