Hearing daytimers from Texas is by no means a common occurence. At Lista in January 2014, however, we were lucky to catch the signal of Christian station KCTA signing off at 00.00 UTC. Their signal was quite good at close down, even beating the signal of superdominant station on 1030 kHz WBZ in Boston for a minute or two.
KCTA is a daytime only station broadcasting with a power of 50 kilowatts. For this they call themselves “the most powerful station in South Texas”. The station is located in the coastal city of Corpus Christi and broadcasts traditional and conservative Christian programming.
My attempts in contacting KCTA by e-mail resulted in absolutely nothing. A letter and CD sent by postal mail (yes, this is still possible…) was substantially more successful. Gracie Dinsdale sent me a nice and friendly letter also by postal mail. Besides confirming my reception of the station, Gracie also enclosed a colourful KCTA calendar, some stickers and a pen. Such a reply is certainly not a common occurence in 2016!
