    KCRN-AM 1120 Limon, CO

    It would appear the station has built out their construction permit. They had been 250 Watts Non Directional from a tower just NW of Limon but hadnt reliably been on the air from in the later part of the last decade up until a few years ago. A commercial operator sold them to The Catholic Radio Network of Kansas City a few years ago and thestaton has limped along on 10 and 100 watt longwireSTA's for a few years.

    I heard catholic radio programming from EWTN on 1120khz for the first time ever this morning in Laramie, Wyoming and KCRN is the only station on 1120 listed as an EWTN affiliate. About 705 am mountain time, I got an ID for "KLIM Limon" which was their call letters until December 2018

    Checking the FCC database, and thanks to engineer Mark Humphrey, it looks like they've filed a form 302-AM which is a license to cover for their 50kw/2 tower facility several miles west of Limon. They may have been granted program test authority but it isnt showing up yet. They also filed a license to cover on their translator, K283AS 102.3 Black Forest, CO and it's new location.

    The Catholic Radio Network staff has told me KCRN 1120 is running currently running 12,500 watts and hope to go to full power of 50kw on Monday.

    Still ID-ing this morning as KLIM (KCRN in the FCC database?) with a fairly solid signal near downtown Colorado Springs. Not quite as strong as our locals, but close.

    It doesn’t need to be a 50,000 watt station like koa the coverage area is too small without interfering with other stations.

    it's no interfering with anyone or it wouldnt have been granted the upgrade from 1kw to 50kw

    It might interfere if it were on at night, but it isn't. Still a true daytime only station.
