  • 2 7/1/11 Es unids

    These may be the same station. The second clip ( 1919 ) has an ID but I haven't matched it to anything so far. Skip was mostly to FL/AL/MS at the time of the first clip, but a second cloud to MO/IA had popped up around the time of the second clip.

    In the first clip towards the end I hear what sounds like "Your Hometown Station is KGI?" but there is nothing on 92.3 with those calls. It may not be KGI but definitely sounds like it starts with a K.

    The second sounds like it may have a classic country format which isn't much help when its in the south as there are a lot of them.

      I had the calls as KTGI, which also equates to nothing. They both sound like classic country types to me, which is why I think it might be the same station, but maybe not.

        Listen again guys...i'm hearing with the ending of a classic country song, "Your hometown station is KDEX (or similar).....lead in to 'Autozone' ad.
        I know KDEX is 102.3 Dexter MO and I don't find any tx for KDEX on 92.3.

        On the other clip, the announcer says, "...with a Friday night catfish fry.....You are, Licking. Welcome home. 92 point three."
        IF i'm not hearing things incorrectly, this could possibly be KSAR Thayer MO. Licking MO is in the KSAR listening area, and KSAR does feature classic country.

          KDEI, I might go for; KDEX, I'm not hearing it. KDEI however, it isn't as that's an AM which is "Radio Maria".

          On the other, I hear it as "You are where you belong, welcome home..." which doesn't confirm or deny KSAR, but I don't hear "Licking" at all.

            On the first clip, I hear the first set of call letters that sound like KDD-- and then, faintly, right before the guy says "AUTO ZONE" there is what sounds like another set of call letters, --IM or --IN. I hear nothing that would identify where this "hometown" station (or pair of stations?) might be. On the second clip, I hear "...and a Friday night catfish fry. We'll see you there. You are where where you get rich. Welcome Home. 92.3"

              Well, I decided to give the first clip a go and what I got out of it wasn't very helpful: "Your hometown station is KDDIT." Then you mentioned Florida and I thought about the biggest Es powerhouse on that frequency down there and it's K-92 FM without a doubt for me. The five-letter calls didn't exactly make sense (obviously!), but if I listen with K-92 in mind, I can (possibly) hear "K _ 92". While I don't think it's K-92 (due to that extra sound in there), it very well could be "_ _-92" if there are any such stations out there. Sounds like the end of a country song there, so you'd imagine it'd be a country station.

              My research led me to KTTN in Missouri. No confirmation as their stream doesn't load, but many people from the Plains straight down to east Texas often pronounce "T" as "D" in plain speech. You can hear this speech pattern in many songs and interviews of famous people from some of these regions, like Hilary Duff (from Houston) for example. So while we're hearing KDD__, it could very well indeed be KTT__. Anyway, I do believe this was your suspected final result in your original posting from July as well.

                It doesn't sound like K92 FM normally sounds, but I could be wrong. They are an ES pest for me every time I get Florida, I had them in HD for a good 30 seconds last year. The unid here sounds more like a smaller town station, KTTN would definitely fit that. I found a working stream for KTTN on Tunein Radio but I'm not sure if its for their AM or FM.

                  I think what you have to have is KTTN in Trenton, MO. It's really the only thing on 92.3 that plays country and has a KTT or KDD call sign. I looked on the FCC FM Call Sign Search for all of the KTT and KDD stations. Many of the KTT stations are country but KTTN was the only one on 92.3 AND was in Missouri skip area. Others were in TX and AZ which are in the same direction.

                  KTTN's web page and Wiki page also mentions country music in its schedule/format.

                    Thanks - KTTN has been heard before, but the logic makes sense - seems better than the other possibilities. And I'm also almost positive it isn't K-92 for the reasons mentioned.
