Carrier current radio was the topic of a neat story in the Oct. 2007 
issue of Popular Communications magazine called "The Carrier Current 
Ghost".  A  BC band dx-er in Rhode Island who recently returned to the 
hobby noticed this consistent unmodulated carrier on 580 khz.   He was 
able to narrow down the signal to his immediate neighborhood, which 
included the former Barrington College, home of WBCW, a student-run 
carrier current radio station on - - 580 khz!   Turns out that one of 
the two transmitters was tucked up behind a basement partion and still 
going strong even though the station had been off the air for years.
