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.
