KMTA 1050 kHz - my second verified AM from Miles City, Montana

When I noticed oldies songs like Bob Seger's Old Time Rock'n Roll on 1050 kHz on ENOX western antenna on March 18th in the morning I got interested and began to track the signal. Right after the song a DJ gave a clear ID for KMTA. The signal faded in and out with CKSB and KBLE being the strongest one on 1050 for a while.

KMTA is my MT #31 and the second one from Miles City. It was back in 1996 in January when I managed to capture and verify KATL on 770 kHz.
KMTA station manager verified my report in 24 hours and told that they were broadcasting on 330 watts at the time. He also promised to send me a cooler "to cool our beverages"!
