NPR - 1470

Post by simbeav » 11 Oct 2019 11:27

I've got an announcement at 06:19 this morning, "This is National Public Radio".

I can't find an NPR station on 1470 - Anybody got any ideas ?

I wonder if this is WWNN. If you use the AUTOSCAN facility in Jaguar, you will see a carrier switching on and off several times between 06:06 and 06:23. That offset looks dangerously close to WWNN's, so maybe them? WWNN are not listed as an affiliate, although I believe they rebroadcast programmes from various sources.

At this time, WWNN's schedule would have a rebroadcast of the Steve Kane Show. I don't see this in the NPR schedule. A mystery.

I don't have the NPR ID in my recording. Offset of what I do have is 1470.0011.

WWNN is good shout. I think they have programmes from different organisations.

The offset matches yours and I had the carrier coming on and off almost as if there was a test or an issue with daytime power coming on and off.

There was a talk programme, I think about politics and this in the middle of it.

I hear that National Public Radio ID. Even Topaz don't list an NPR station on 1470. Very likely WWNN.
