Default MW: Local class D station still broadcasting at midnight

As a creature of habit, I tune over to 1030 WBZ to fall asleep, like I always do. But the semi-local class D Spanish station is still broadcasting at full power, several hours after sunset! A disappointing ending to a very disappointing day.

There's a way to cancel them out, but the DIY instructions were on another computer. It's *not* using a tuned loop, it's a DIY deal, using tin foil, a wire to the receiving antx on your radio, and moving the radio directional to the station. I'm too busy right now to find the link again- forgot the proper search terms. IF I remember this tomorrow, I will search again for the how-to- it's a very old post, wish me luck. Has to do with blocking out another MW station- my searches right now come up bupkis- no time tonight to do so any more and it's late

I know your pain. Apparently the Mexican stations don't respect the FCC... it bugs me when I am dxing and my late night listening on MW.

You might try this: https://www.fcc.gov/research-reports...ast-complaints

I think the FCC actually takes action against broadcast licensees.

WBZ puts a good signal in here (have even received it on my xtal set) in the evening after the local 5kw daytimer signs off.
Occasionally tune in to catch Dan Rea's Night Side program.
