WIRD Lake Placid NY 920

I was very surprised when I had a station with ESPN coming through CKNX on Sept 27. I got a nice ID and sent a report to the chief engineer Christopher Brescia who gave me an explanation to the fact that presumed 87 watts had reached Örnsköldsvik:While we are licensed to operate at 5,000 watts during daytime hours, we are supposed to reduce power to 87 watts at sunset, as you stated. Unfortunately our operators, who are also running other radio stations, sometimes forget to reduce power when they are supposed to. Very likely they did not reduce power when you heard the station. Several times in the recent past the station has been reported to have been received in Finnland.
920 has become an interesting channel when CJCH left for FM earlier this year.

KGOW Houston (Bellaire) TX 1560

When hurricane Ike struck Houston September 12/13 radio station KGOW used its powerful daytime transmitter 24/7 in order to get better coverage, They even reached Scandinavia with rather good signal strength, on top of the more common WQEW New York most of the time. They were also heard on September 19 with TheGame sports but according to GM Richard Topper they are now back to normal daytime/nighttime schedule so it will be pretty hard to tune them in again. He verified my report and asked for my snail mail for some station stuff! Nice to know everything is OK again, Richard.
