A couple of stations from Minnesota made a surprise appearance at Lista in October 2008. Apart from KFAN on 1130 kHz, stations from this state does not appear too often in our headphones at Lista.
When reviewing my recordings I was surprised to hear an ad and an identification from KTOE in Mankato, Minnesota on 1420 kHz. The signal could only be heard for a couple of minutes, but it was enough for me to put the station in the log. Moreover, my recording was good enough for Scott Schmeling, Chief Engineer at the station, to recognize (although barely! 🙂 ) their announcements.
KTOE broadcasts with a power of 5 kilowatts with a news talk format.
