I'm not sure if this 100 KW station from South Caicos has official call
letters, but it calls itself "RVC" in the top-of-the hour ID and simulcasts
the Spanish religious programming of Radiovision Christiana/WWRV New York.

Probably CJAD Montreal.  Can't receive them--or CKLW--here in Danbury, CT
because of WLAD (250 watts ND night) on same frequency.

CKVL, as other members of this list have already suggested.

Most likely, this is CKBC; I have received them before and they run a CHR
format (hence the "Today's Music.)

WLAC Nashville.

Must have been WPHG.  However, an adult standards station in South Bend, IN
is also scheduled to move to 1620 very soon (don't remember the calls.)
