    This sounded very much like an Es reception, but I can't discount the possibility of the NJ station off the back of the antenna. Anyone recognize it ?

    Could be WZBZ in Pleasantville NJ. I caught them from the vehicle on 7/23/08 in the Horsham PA area

      Definitely not WZBZ. They wouldn't use that slogan or be going into a Cyndi Lauper song. I think it's probably 99.3 KMA Clarinda, IA, I remember having them around that time and might have had an identical liner.

        That makes sense as I had a series of local ads from them ten minutes after I recorded this clip. They've turned into an Es pest this season.

          Russ,

          Sorry for bad info. But glad you figured it out. I am back into the hobby after about 20 years away and trying to figure out who all my locals and semi-locals are. After I did some more research, I agree that it could not be the NJ station.

            No problem - in my initial post I suggested Pleasantville as a possibility, knowing that Nick or Michael who both hear them more regularly would know for sure. The signal didn't behave like WZBZ would have - more like Es.

              Russ,

              Just to sew it up, my logs revealed getting 92.9 KTGL at 11:11 and 96.3 KZDY at 11:12 on 7/31. It matches the skip zone and you and I are less than 15 miles apart.
