I was asked if I had possibly misheard the ID on 1350 WOAM as it has been inactive since 2013.
But I checked and couldn’t get it to anything else so I logged on to a Kiwi SDR in Peoria IL and listened to 1350 and there was a music station going which was ID as FM and AM 1350 WOAM.
So it’s apparently back on. There isn’t much info about this online so it can’t have been running that long. The license was renewed on 15/7-2022 and is valid for 5-6 years.

Update on The Northern Star AM stations.

AM 1611 The Sea and AM 5895 Radio Northern Star/The Sea came back on the air on Thursday, October 27th at 1702 and 2000 CET respectively after a long absence since December 15th, 2021.
A new technical team is now in place.

LLE-4 1611(400 watts of 2 kW possible) is running our Classic Country station “The Sea» through an inverted “V”.
LLE-3 5895 has a mix of Radio Northern Star(Classic and Pop favorites from both sides of the Atlantic) and The Sea(30 watts in AM mode, through another inverted «V».
The schedule is tentative for the moment and the transmissions must be considered as engineering tests:

1611 @1700-0015 CET
5895 @0530-0010 CET

The licenses runs out on New Year’s Eve, but new licenses has been applied for.
We verify correct reception reports for 1611 and 5895. And reports are very welcome, preferably with mp3 recordings and a clear ID to this email address only: 1000@northernstar.cc

The situation for LLE-2 1314 kHz is still uncertain.
Further updates as they come.

Re. 1089 and 1143 kHz:
It seems that they do not test on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, now already for two weekends in a row. Last weekend 1143kHz was silent (1089 not testing yet), this weekend 1143 and 1089kHz seem to be silent. But it is irregular, so I could miss something… I do not sit at my radio all the time  🙂  But I check it usually around noon in Central Europe when it is usually on during working days with a test tone or Radio Rossii. Off in the late afternoon.

Radio Russia is available RIGHT NOW (11 UTC) on 1143 kHz.
Don’t know if this is a regular broadcast or testing.
Nice clear signal on this Gotland based SDR ( but weak or almost not audible on the ones from Poland.
In St.Wierczowo near Koszalin ( the signal is already deep in noise, but however, still understandable.
Certainly directional antenna towards N/W and S/E, otherwise it would be available on several Poland based SDRs in better quality.
