    Is 1130AM KWKH Listenable in Dallas?

    I'll be driving through Dallas (Abilene to Shreveport) Saturday night and was wondering if KWKH can be caught in Dallas and if so, how listenable is it?

    I've picked up KWKH as far south as Laredo, but with Dallas being within three hours of Shreveport, I was thinking maybe the groundwave would cancel out the skywave.

    That happens to me with WOAI in Victoria, as well as XEG in Laredo.

    Thanks in advance.

    KWKH and KEEL from Shreveport came in on my car radio almost like locals when I lived in Dallas 20 years ago.

    Dallas and Ft. Worth are way outside of the area where groundwave and skywave should cancel each other out for KWKH. Longview, on the other hand, should be a different story. Tyler could be, too.

    DFW is ALMOST too far north for KWKH's night pattern but most nights its definitely there, some nights stronger than others. I used to listen quite regularly when it was still Classic Country as its a heck of a lot stronger than WSM is here. The absolute strongest night signal is WWL, with WOAI and KRZI right behind it. 1680 out of Shreveport is another regular here with a pretty booming signal most of the time.

    Can you pull in XEG's 1050AM on a nightly basis better than KWKH?

    I remember listening to 1050AM all the way from Fort Worth to Terrell without much static. Did not think to try KWKH.

    1050 is pretty solid where I'm at near the Red River, XERF 1570 still booms in as well.
    1050 is probably more reliable than KWKH but I haven't listened to either long enough to know for sure, I've never thought to compare the two so I'll have to check it out.
    1680 is KRJO Monroe, I got the cities mixed up. Plays a Jack-FM type format.

    On a side note, I can get a faint KWKH during the day at my location.

    From what I read on Facebook, Townsquare has worked on improving KWKH's signal. A few years ago it's daytime signal was fine, not quite as good as KEEL 710. But KWKH's was weak at night here in Kilgore. Driving east on I-20 it didn't get strong until you got around Marshall. It's much stronger now.

    Liberty,

    When you say you hear 1680 out of Monroe, are you speaking about nighttime or daytime listening?

    It is not as good as it used to be. I used to listen to it at night all the time. Granted, once it dropped the music I had less reason to listen, but I've found the signal in the past few years to be far harder to get at night.

    I can actually hear it in the daytime at my home in Plano, but it is way down in the mud and mostly hard to understand what they're saying.

    Typically only at night, Winters can bring it faintly in during the afternoon hours however.
