You sure it was _7_20? CHTN in Charlottown is on 720 (10 kW-D, 7.5 kW-N
DA-N). Seems quite unlikely that there's sufficient Spanish-speaking
population on PEI to support a local SS station. Could you possibly have
been tuned to _6_20? WXLX in Newark NJ might have gotten up that far. It's
only 5 kW, but it's strongly directional to the east.

I suppose it could have been a Cuban. But with commercials?
