Re: 1080 kHz DXing

I know, I heard WABH-AM VERY strong last night.

It was a no show for me here in the Boston area.
When I tuned to 1080, I just heard some Spanish in the
background, not recognizable.  But, the night was not
wasted.  In fact, I got a few surprises on the AM
1380  WABH     NY, Bath     "Oldies 1380", very
strong! (320 miles)
1340  WIRY     NY, Plattsburgh "Hometown Radio" (221
1340  WMSA     NY, Massena  "AM 1340/WMSA", adult
standards (280 miles)

If only WBAL were not there, I could have gotten
KRLD.  Oh, well.  Such is life and DX'ing!! 73.
