KGEM Boise ID 1140 - verification

This real gem called itself "K-Gem" when I captured it during LEM234 on November 9, 2006 at 13:28 UTC. It also identified "11-40 K-G-E-M, K-Gem" and it was audible during several nice nostalgia songs. It was, however, badly interfered by CHRB High River, AB on 1140,013 kHz but luckily KGEM faded in over CHRB very strongly for a couple of times. And because of a local Morning Show, KGEM identified frequently during this listening period.
Very friendly QSL came in a couple of hours from Radio Engineering Manager who used to enjoy finding distant stations on the AM band years ago as well.
