    Kpam860 and kkov have been off the air most of tonight. At least in my house.

    Seems like someone is turning 860 on and off though. Occasionally the noise of dozens of competing signals gets blown away by a minute or two of clean, dead air.

    I have heard an unmodulated carrier pop on 860 kHz every few minutes and disappear within 10 seconds. I am hearing Bollywood music on 1550 instead of KKOV. My guess is that the antenna phasors and/or diplexers are being tuned up.

    If they're both off the air, I'm betting it's maintenance. They gotta do it sometime. Enjoy the open channels!
