iHeartMedia has expanded Fox Sports Radio to a second signal in Bakersfield CA.
“Comedy 800” KBFP Bakersfield is now simulcasting “Fox Sports 970” KHTY Bakersfield. Both signals are running the national Fox Sports Radio lineup around the clock outside of “CK On Sports” from 3-4pm hosted by Christopher ‘CK’ Hall and based at co-owned 1340 KCBL Fresno.
KBFP was the last of iHeart’s terrestrial stations running the format from its 2012 initiative placing it on many signals across the country.

MAGNIFICENT CME: Earlier today, an unusually slow solar flare hurled a magnificent CME into space. The explosion and its afterglow lasted nearly 8 hours. The CME could sideswipe Earth’s magnetosphere later this week, producing minor geomagnetic storms. Full story @ Spaceweather.com.

Used to be heard quite regularly back in the 80s in NZ.

SBS Radio MW frequencies.
This list might be helpful…lest you think you are receiving something more exotic! This applies to those outside Australia as well, for example a DXer on the west coast of North America who hears an Indian language programme- who might mistake SBS for a genuine signal from the subcontinent.
Canberra: 1440 kHz
Melbourne: 1224 kHz
Sydney: 1107 kHz
Newcastle: 1413 kHz
Wollongong: 1035 kHz, 1485 kHz
All the other SBS services are on the FM band, even those in the other capitals.

I understood [….], that the 2CH transmitter on 1170 kHz was supposed to close down on 10 June in the evening?
There still is sports programming hear via Sydney Kiwi today.
What is then heard in Sydney today: http://sdrvk2ari.hopto.org:8073/?f=1170.00amz9

Yes 1170 kHz is still very much active in Sydney; it is now ‘SEN 1170‘ airing an all-sports format as discussed above. There are no plans to switch off this service as far as I’m aware. 2CH left 1170 kHz over a year ago now.

The receiver was SDRplay RSPdx with SDRuno software, using a 550 foot beverage antenna aimed at Europe.
