Just came back from Mexico where I picked up WFLA everyday on 25.876.
Location was between Cabo San Lucas and La Paz.

It was nice to be able to listen to Rush and Tony Snow.  So anybody have an
idea why 970 on the AM band shows up at 25.876.

  Seems I have heard of these links before- but thought they were all
abandoned. Anyway, I E-Mailed WFLA and I'll post their response. I am in West
Palm Beach, FL and do not currently hear them (0200 UTC).

Hi All,

WFLA 970 Tampa FL RPU Link on 25.870, booms in down here, almost
on a daily basis. From memory I think the power output is around
70 watts and it's an audio feed for their news helicopter.

The KFXX 910 Sportsradio Portland OR, RPU Link on 25.950 is also
booming in here.

The Canadian International DX Club has a freq list of IDed
25/26MHz RPUs.

Catch 26 Broadcast Auxilliary Transmissions:

I also occassionally hear the RCN Brisas del San Juan Columbia
Program Feed on 32.003.

Cheers for now, Ian Julian ZL1TBM Hamilton New Zealand

DXer Alan Roberts in Quebec has focussed a lot of effort over the years
trying to hear these stations.

Man, we get tired of saying this again and again - BUT---- WFLA has a
remote pick-up link on 25.870 NBFM that they use to transmit on-air cues
to their traffic planes. The 25.5 MHz band has a lot of these type of
signals.

Some of these signals have been making it over this side of the Atlantic
on occasions. Ive heard them  a couple of  times, using a tatty 20 yr
old Realistic dx 300, and the ratty old 10m bit of bell wire I call an
antenna. :-)
