  • 106.9 Ms UNID

    I'm torn between Tr and Ms on this one because of how it behaves, but figure I'll throw it up here anyway.

    http://www.chriskadlec.com/temp/radio/Ms_1069.MP3

    Frequency is 106.9 from Mackinaw City, Mich., 8/13 2:30pm.

    Regular WOOD-FM persists until suddenly at 1:40 in the clip, Ms pings start up and a few stations appear. CHR comes in then IDs at 2:13 before fading out by 2:35 where WOOD returns as normal. Of course, I can't understand the ID. 106.9 Milwaukee is pretty usual here, so the presence of Ms makes it all more confusing than a simple ID.

    A handful of Ms IDs were heard into the Dakotas and Manitoba that afternoon on the portable with some stations lasting 30-60 seconds in near-solid with IDs and ads. This was a full FM bandscan; the Ms pings were just pinging all over the place in the few days before this as I scanned the dial, which I just worked around as I don't do Ms unless it finds me instead.

    At 2:14 in the clip, I hear a liner of a man's voice "1 0 6 point 9 Hits" which could be Larned KS, Jefferson City MO or Muskogee OK. Were you looking for something else? And I believe that sounds like an extended meteor burn (train).

      Thanks, Jim. It turns out that it is K-Hits, thanks to Saul's good ears (and others after him). That's three positive IDs by Ms during that coastal bandscan on that afternoon. Talk about good luck for just a few hours on the portable while not even looking for Ms. QX was recorded accidentally and gave an ID in the few seconds it appeared, while Power 95 was nearly one minute of solid Williston ads as if it were an Es opening.

      95.1 KTHC MT Sidney / Power 95 / 100kw / Ms heard in car (922 mi.)
      104.1 CFQX MB Selkirk / QX 104 Country / 100kw / Ms over WVGR (636 mi.)
      106.9 KHTT OK Muskogee / K-Hits / 98kw / 5dBµ, mono, Ms (893 mi.)
