Aug26 08:23 Looks like it might be KLPW Steelville MO, but what's the semi-classical music mixing in? St. Louis translator of KGNV-89.9? I cannot check for parallel, tiny stations in network and no stream--Frank M. (
Aug26 08:14 (am talking about his FM by frequency listings) (
Aug26 08:13 I note that database is still ROYALLY screwed up, showing often 3 to 5 consecutive and disparate stations with the same programming, etc.--Frank M. (

Aug26 00:52 Rob, so going deep into NY State is uncommon even for you? Anything past Buffalo was certainly EXTREMELY rare from Toledo. And in neither case is the Escarpment in the way!--Frank M. (

Aug25 23:47 I still remember watching Night Moves, Night Ride, and Night Walk real late at night on CIII when I was in high school. The street lights on that helped me log a couple of Global stations back then. de Eric B (
Aug25 23:46 I got DX through that station only once, ever - 102.3 Wilmington OH (and Galion was "kind of DX" but well under 100 miles) Frank M. (
Aug25 23:45 Rob, no idea when CIII-DT 22 came on; I haven't DXed TV since about 1999 or so. Also, I don't have an HDTV to DX with. I'm so old-fashioned, hi! de Eric B, Carleton, MI (
Aug25 23:44 23:30--Even if they were on in the 70s, I would have NEVER noticed them. Hyper-local WPOS was in the *same* direction at 3 miles--Frank M. (

Aug25 23:23 Even Sarnia didn't have FM until the Seventies. I think the first new FM outside of London, in that great In-Between, was Woodstock--Frank M. (
Aug25 23:21 I started FM Dxing in 1976 was a Barren wasteland on FM here then!! Now the only freq I can Ms DX on is 88.5, and it's a mix of 4 or 5 Regulars as well!! de ROB VA3SW (

Aug25 23:16 Oops...Tillsonburg, too. But I think that was all--Frank M. (
Aug25 23:16 Oops... (
Aug25 23:16 At the time, London had the **ONLY ONE FM** station (95.9) that existed between Windsor and Brantford. Hard to imagine, isn't it?--Frank M. (
Aug25 23:16 Yes Frank…London is jammed now…Detroit, Buffalo, Toronto, Cleveland, Erie, Toledo, Youngstown, Windsor, Kitchener, Akron you name it…all full warp into London!! de ROB VA3SW EN92 (

Aug25 23:13 22:59--And I remember when I used to think of London as being the most horrible possible CCI location, with so many frequencies occupied from **100** miles away--Frank M. (
Aug25 23:12 Windsor's not a good place; band is WAY more congested than it was just a decade ago. Easily half a dozen signed on in Windsor in just the past decade. And I won't get into all the xltrs popping up all over the place. de Eric B, Carleton, MI (
