<<< I remember when living in Alaska, 657 Pyongyang was quite listenable when 
KFAR 660 didn’t splatter it to death from 275 ish miles away

Thanks for posting the link, Paul, and that's a great recording (of the signal, 
not necessarily the content :-)

There is a similar splatter issue here with 650-CISL, a 10 kW daytimer from 
Vancouver at 160 miles (which I'm sure is well-loved by the Victoria DXers). 
Despite this nuisance 657's signal occasionally comes through at a huge level, 
like these 3+1 pips at 1330 UTC on 9-25-16
