On Fri. Jan 29th, China Radio International's 200KW transmitter on 1080khz in Kunming, China made it here to McGrath, Alaska at 1603UTC/703AM AK time. No actual ID was heard, but there were quite a few news stories mentioning china and their 1080 Kunming transmitter does have english scheduled at this hour. Normally, i have a "Semi local" on this frequency.. KOAN Anchorage is 10kw and "only" 230 miles away and usually pretty loud, but not this time.
Heard with a CC Skywave and 5" DeBock FSL loop antenna
