One of the members of the National Radio Club is compiling what we call 
"Saul's List," keeping tabs on the stations that seem to regularly be heard 
far beyond where they should be reaching, night in and night out. CJVA's on 
there, as are the 720 in PEI and the 780 in Nova Scotia.

And my nighttime enjoyment of WWKB has been hindered lately by KRHW, 
Sikeston MO, which is supposed to be a narrow pencil beam at 1600 watts 
going straight north from Sikeston to Cape Girardeau, but which sounds an 
awful lot like it's using 5 kW and its loose day pattern all night long...
