I live about 20 miles south of KXPA, 1540 (Bellevue, WA) and listen to it periodically when I have patience to fix the traps. I can follow a broadcast to aid in determining if you are listening to KXPA. Apparently, you want to know if a sporting match is on KXPA at a certain hour. I can help out if you give me times and programs to cover--but not tonight--am taking the "war dept." to the hockey game. Fill me in.

Thanks Mike. I'm south east of the station so I'm probably in a weaker signal area.
I've used that data base to ID the reason I could not receive a target station.
Reception was poor last night. No wrestling or call letters. I'm locked on to it using my spotter radio this morning waiting to see if the reception improves this morning, a good indication that it might be the local. I'll be looking for call letters at noon east coast and here trying to fit a few more pieces into the puzzle.
KZMP's on line listening came up at 6:00. It was a good canidate, sports talk, but the station I'm picking up is not KZMP.
Sometime before 8:00 am when I checked it again the signal strength dropped considerably and I have another one in the background. Maybe KZMP daytime. Low signal levels and interference between the two make it impossible to copy anything. Trying to isolate the signals using a loop did not work well enough to ID the direction or clear up either signal enough to be worthwhile listening. It will be a couple days before I have a chance to listen in again.
