Here is the WHRI transmission schedule.

You'll have to match to time of day.  It is not AM station related as the highest frequency in their schedule is around 7 MHz removed. It could be a mix of two of their transmitters as 2 have an ERP of about 25 megawatts.

> Here's something interesting. I queried the FCC data base for WHRI as an AM station, no such license. I then checked all the AM stations in S.C. and there is only one AM in Rock Hill, S.C. and it is WAVO on 1150 kHz. 5 kW. day , .059 kW. night - yes 59 Watts. It is owned by WHVN, Inc. which sounds like a contraction of Heaven............
