Just ran out to the Car, rain/wind let up for a bit, and 1300 am is all
static, No signal  :(
In the house only had analog dial, so I couldn't tell if it was on 1300 or

The days of my listening to WJDA went away when the Asher family sold it off
and the format was no longer English

It certainly sounds like it - though the WJDA tower was considerably 
more than 100 feet.

Still in use. Sister station WESX had moved to a new site and removed 
its old tower in Marblehead, but WJDA was still using the tower near Sea 
and Palmer.

Anyone hearing a signal on 1300?
