Chicago AMs off the air

An item of interest to those of you who like to “DX” on the AM broadcast band: On Saturday, March 10 from 3-6 AM EST, three of the big 50 KW AM stations in Chicago will all be off the air for maintenance. For those of us who hear these stations well, it will provide an opportunity to hear other stations on these frequencies. Stations involved are WSCR 670, WGN 720 and WBBM 780. Some of the other stations that use those frequencies are planning special test transmissions in the hope of being heard. It is a rare opportunity, and I will be making digital recordings on those frequencies during the time period.
