W call on 1430

The Wa call is unclear, but the interesting thing about this one is the dual frequency ID. I don't think I've heard this on 1430 before. The answer is surely there, and the question is: Who uses both has 1430 and 1110 AM?

OK. My guess !

I think that it is WNSW - Newark,NJ.

At 3 seconds there MAY be "relevantradio.com" - that's not clear, though.

I can't make out the first callsign, but rather bizarrely he is saying "Newark, New York state". WNSW is listed as Newark, but broadcasts to NY state.

The clincher is WVNJ Oakland and the frequencies given are 1430 and 1160

You are right Simon. Thank you for cracking the case! So WNSW. Not exactly rare, nor common, so I am pleased with this - especially since I just realised that it's not in my log here. So a personal first! I would never have spotted the WVNJ Oakland bit and my interpretation of 1110 was clearly wrong, so no wonder I couldn't come up with anything. Thank you again! :)
