It was late Christmas Eve & early Christmas morning. Everyone was asleep and I was up waiting for Santa AND listening to Atlantic DX.
At 0533Z I confirmed WIOD with a definite ID. At 0632Z I heard 1170 WWVA. Also heard WSM for my first time. IDd WSCR barely above the noise level fighting it out with Cuba. WLW was fairly strong.
The Canadians were doing well, especially CFRB & VOCM. Others making the trip across the Atlantic last night to Northern Ireland were WJR, WABC, WBBM, WCBS, WLS, WMVP, CFRB--strong, KDKA,WBZ, and of course WBBR. Heard something on 1190, suspect WLIB, but not sure.
The highlight for me was finally confirming WIOD. It's a tough one to identify because it just makes it above the noise level, but I finally got a station break. (I love challenges)
Also, nice to confirm WWVA which I suspected before, but finally got an ID tonight.
Cyberdad--I listened for your 730, but can't ID. It certainly wasn't music & the talk was not in English.
Merry Christmas fellow DXers!
