Anyone think I can get this station on my DX-394 with a long wire
arial?

I would think you are more likely to hear WOR-710 in New York City. If I'm not
mistaken, KCMO's signal pattern is directional, to keep it from interfering
with WOR. I don't think KCMO is putting out much of a signal towards the
northeast.
Of course, I could be wrong.

Don't know if you can hear them or not, but here is their web site if you
don't have it. I listen to KCMO all day as I live in Kansas City. I sis
forward your question to their chief engineer.

Depends on how long the aerial is and how close you are to interfering
stations..

Their nighttime directional antenna pattern is not particularly favorable to
the UK.  The effective radiated power in your direction is only about 500
watts.  Stations of this power level *have* been heard there, but it's not
easy.

No, because you have 50,000 watt clear-channel WOR (710) in New York City
right in your way...
