This afternoon i was scanning the band on my EURO 3900 and heard a radio
station on B band channel 37 "sorry dont know the freq," i dont have any preamp
hooked up or anything and i was hearing this station clearley.It was comeing in
on AM and FM and i just thought something was rong with my radio.So i decided
to sit back and listen for a while,then i heard the DJ come on and ID the
station and said it was in florida"west palm beach i beleave"Then to my suprise
a caller called in and said she was in ARK, and the DJ asked how in the world
she was picking the station up from so far.She said she was picking the station
up on her CB and decided to call and request a song! I was flipping out! I knew
the skip was rolling out of florida but didnt have a clue how this radio
station was comeing in on such a low freq, Could somebody fill me in on this!!!

The only explanation I can think of is that someone was rebroadcasting the
station with a CB and you were hearing skip.

It is very unusual that you could hear it clearly in both the FM and AM modes.

I hear a radio station's remote link out of Fort Piers, FL on 26.47 when
the DX is right...dunno if this is the same one or not. I'm in Michigan

What your probably hearing is the 2 florida radio stations that for some reason
re-transmit their station on 26.470 and 25.870 FM...I hear them here in MI
too...

These operations are very much legitimate and legal.  The stations are using
their RPU (remote pickup) frequencies.

These are radio frequncies in the Remote Pickup Broadcast Service. These
stations are broadcasting from remote sites back to the studio or are using
these channels to send signals to the transmitter. They belong on these channels.

between 26 and 26.500 there is a remote broadcast link...this might be
what you are hearing..via skip conditions
