CBC Radio 900 AM, St. Michael 900

"One of three radio stations of The Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation, 94.7fm broadcasts from The Pine, St Michael, programming to listeners in Barbados and also received by listeners in St Vincent, Grenada, St Lucia and Dominica on 900Am which mirrors its’ programming".
This info can be found on the CBC web.

When I heard CBC Radio 900 AM on February 21, 2012, the station had been on my most wanted list for about 30 years. I heard a male announcer saying “94.7 FM. This station let the greatest hits from yesteryear come alive”.
Today I received this email from Pearson Bowen, Programme Manager: "Acknowledging receipt and confirming that what you heard is in fact CBC 900am/94.7fm from Barbados, West Indies."

ZYH803 Radio Bandeirantes, Brasilia DF 1410

On March 10, 2007, I heard a Brazilian station on 1410, with this ID:

"Rádio Voz do Cerrado AM, 1410 - a nova rádio de Brasília.
Em breve, você vai conhecer a rádio que tem música, informações, esporte.
Uma rádio completa, feita so' para você.
Aqui, AM 1410. Aguarde!"

The station was A Voz do Cerrado from Santo Antônio do Descoberto, Goiás, but I got no reply whatsoever after numerous air mail letters.

On July 9, 2011, I heard a station on 1410 with the ID “ZYH803 en 1410 .... Bandeirantes Brasilia ...”. This reception was immediately confirmed by Dickson Ferreira, and to my question he also confirmed that this is the same station as the station I heard in 2007.

WCRW Leesburg VA 1190

WCRW surfaced with a tiny signal just in time for their signing off ceremony, under a much stronger WLIB on November 18, 2011. Both Miles Mead and Brian C. Edwards kindly confirmed my reception.
