Hearing stations as far west as Iowa is not that common on my usual DX-pedition site at Lista. At the November 2007 DX-pedition, however, we managed to hear quite a few stations from as far inland as Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin.
One of the stations heard was KXNO in Des Moines, Iowa, a station neither me or my DX-buddy Torgeir Nyen had heard before. KXNO was heard with a fair signal around our sunrise one of the mornings announcing the slogan “KXNO – Des Moines’ Sports Station”. Assistant Programme Director Geoff Conn sent me an e-mail confirming my reception of the station today.
