Hello all. I'm trying to get an id on a station I hear from here in nw FL. They play 50's and 60's oldies, and appear to come from either east/west,or possibly northeast/southwest. Not really sure. I've ruled out WPTF,WCNN,and KKYX.( I can hear them ) I can actually get 4 stations on this frequency. I can't find any listing on Wikipedia. Just checked their signal strength and it does appear to be northeast/southwest. Not much southwest of here except Texas, but I can get TX from here. Anyone in the south hearing this station?

The only distant station playing oldies I could locate was WISR in Butler, PA. at 900 or so miles from you and I think that would be northeast of you. And there's also WTIS, an oldies station in Tampa as well.

I almost forgot to give you the link to what I use

The PA station only runs 50 watts at night, so it's not them. The Tampa station shows a different frequency  (1110),so I don't know.

Sorry for the mistake. But hopefully the link will be of help to you.

No idea except maybe one of the stations changed format recently and the change wasn't updated in radio locator yet. I took out the oldies as a search parameter and here is the revised list. It shows WGES from St. Pete at 12.5 miles with 165 watts at night as your local... I assume you can get past that with little problem.

The problem with getting an id from this station is that I'm not hearing a dj,just the music. Some of these AM stations have an FM sister station they similcast with, and don't id much. Unless you're lucky enough to catch them at the top of the hour. I'll keep trying. The WGES station appears to be a Spanish speaking Christian format. I don't believe I'm hearing them.

Haven't checked their power or if they're daytimers, but possibly:

WINR - Binghamton, NY
https://www.optiradio.com/radio/Real-Oldies-680-AM-WINR

or

WISR - Butler, PA
https://www.optiradio.com/radio/WISR

or

WKAZ - Charleston, WV

Looks like the Charleston station's format has changed from oldies to business
