WCXN Claremont NC 1170

I found a news story about WWVA Wheeling WV on KOJE on August 11:
"All three towers damaged due a severe thunderstorm. Station is now on the air with STA: Emergency Long Wire Antenna (height 40ft, length 125ft) and power of 12.5 kW day and night".
Because of this WWVA hasn't been the usual super dominant this fall, making 1170 a lot more interesting frequency! Our 670-meter-long antenna at Smøla is probably broken, and has mainly favoured latin Americans this season. But on a recording made on November 10 I found La Que Buena 1170 AM WCXN Claremont NC, after having heard WMOB Mobile AL 1360 the same morning. Quite enjoyable!
