Here's Voice of Nevis this morning on 860 AM. Nevis is about 200-300 miles from here. I believe they run 10 kw.

AM stations from the Eastern Caribbean are getting scarce these days. Nevis used to be on 895 but moved to 860 in recent years. East coasters might be able to snag this one.

And here is RCR (Radio Caracas Radio) 750 AM from Venezuela this morning. They run 100 kw and its a salt water path from here to there, about 500 miles. A friend of mine in NC can copy this one when WSB-Atlanta fades.

That's actually quite a well programmed late 60's playlist -- a couple of them, like 1910 Fruitgum Co's "Indian Giver", pretty rare for oldies radio. Must have been fun to listen to it.
