Both KPOJ and KEX are off the air this evening. So far, on 620 I’ve logged KIGS Hanford, CA. On 1190 I’ve logged CFSL Weyburn, SK, and KGBN Anaheim, CA. Verified by SDR. 1200 CJRJ Vancouver, BC sure splatters.
That’s a fairly rare DXing opportunity. They were both up and down during the last storm and I heard pretty much what you heard, but I didn’t notice Anaheim then. It was nice hearing the first adjacents too.
Unfortunately, by the time that I saw this thread, both KPOJ and KEX had returned to the air. I had been looking forward to hearing CJRJ in AM stereo and DXing some of the other stations.
The last time I recall 620 being off the air was when they were attempting to troubleshoot problems with broadcasting IBOC. I recall hearing a frequency-swept carrier under the co-channel stations while this was happening. In my hazy recollection, this was some time in 2005.
CKXM 1200 Victoria BC gave up its AM frequency and flipped to FM in May 2000. It is now CJZN-FM 91.3. An entirely new station, CJRJ 1200 Vancouver BC, went on the air in Dec 2007 (some sources give the date as Nov 2006.)
CKDA was a Top 40 station in Victoria on 1220 before moving to 1200, at about the same time that the Seattle area 1220 moved to 1210. They covered Vancouver fairly well, at least with an old long car antenna. KING and KJR were pretty good too.
