    Post Unid Spanish Station on 1710 Khz

    Initially there was a thread on this topic almost eight years ago. The station was never identified or located.

    I been hearing this unidentified middle-aged male Spanish religious preacher, sometimes it is a middle-aged sounding Spanish female
    giving a sermon, then Christian contemporary music. The signal strength ranges between good and weak.

    So far this station has been heard in Virginia Beach, Virginia, Long Beach Island, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania back in 2010.

    Today, another AM-DXer reported to me that he had heard it for thirty minutes this afternoon during a power outage near Waterbury,
    Connecticut.

    I'm curious if any AM-Dxers west of Harrisburg or Scranton, Pennsylvania has heard it. If so, the possible direction.

    It seems the station comes in better using a vertical antenna.

    It's not the one in Baton Rouge LA? This one has a stream:

    It has been widely reported lately, I believe. My local 1700 WJCC would make this a hard catch for me.

    Nope, it's not that one. Their audio stream does not match what I am hearing tonight.

    This eluding station is somewhere west of the TIS WQFG689 in Jersey City, NJ.

    I doubt that the station is west of Hoboken. There have been 2 or more Spanish music pirates on 1710 out of NYC for several years. I'm pretty certain that's what's being heard. I'm just far enough, and without an outdoor antenna, that I normally hear neither, but if Hoboken is in, there is usually SS QRM.

    But there have also been reports in prior years of a 1710 SS pirate in Tidewater, VA....

    If there are any members that reside near Bridgewater, NJ that can hear this station or if you
    are mobile near Bridgewater and traveling east towards New York city, let me know if the signal
    gets stronger or weaker.

    Send a log report with date, time, signal strength, your location and if possible a short audio
    clip on this thread.
