Last night I was having a listen on my Teac PR130 and was able to confirm this again. The Teac PR130 is a good performer but I am still a little shocked by how well it has worked.

Alex... thats WGLB for the call-sign according to FCC. Nonetheless, a fine catch.

Looks to me they came through with no changes from what they were when I sent them--same size and perfectly clear. This is the way it should be!

Re: [irca] Useful KGOW 1560 DX Tip

Forgot to include some audio.. this is what the beginning of the second half hour segment of VOA Vietnamese on KGOW sounded like from Wyoming:

There are few vietnamese stations in the country, but I figure this might be useful.

Listen in the 10pm central hour for an hour of VOA programming.  It's 2 different half hour segments.

It will begin with a time chimes and a male announcer saying "Welcome to the Voice of America in vietnamese" into an english VOA jingle. 

Sometimes theres a VOA jingle in the program itself. I've heard a VOA jingle amist asian languages on 1575 Thailand. 

THe program itself runs about 25-26 minutes and they may or may not have local commercials in between the two, but there are certainly some before the 11pm TOH. "Local" self generated programming may mention other cities as I'm not sure what originates from Houston.

I’ve heard way way way too many to list and I don’t keep a written/typed log.. just audio recordings with station name, frequency, fate/time heard. I don’t really want to sort through all of this.

Hi Paul,
When you get a chance, list what Asian Outlets you have heard there so far this season.
Unfortunately I cancelled my Oregon Coast trip next week, but would like an idea what I might could hear off my mountain/hillside location.
I have a variety (more like an arsenal) of loops, including an Aichelman 4" FSL.
Thanks
