We have another AM BC station that has been running amuck on 
160. I got a positive ID on it tonight. It is WRJS in 
Swainsboro GA. According to the FCC database (might not be 
current) they are supposed to run 23 watts at night on 1590 
kHz. They are, with 23W, 30-40 over nine on 1590 and 
producing about S7 garbage on 160 well after dark.

You might misinterpret the signal as power line noise unless 
you switch to a wide filter on AM and listen carefully.

They have wideband very distorted noise and audio byproducts 
from above the BC band all across 160. Anyone else in the SE 
hearing that junk please email me. I'm in particular looking 
for someone in the Swainsboro or Emanuel county Georgia 

Be nice to get it fixed before the 160 contest.
