KKMO is a Tacoma, WA. station on 1360 khz with 5kw unlimited omni-directional authority.

Yep, that's an embarrassing error...

it should have said 1360.

And I was of course checking for the test on the wrong frequency...

I was thinking of the 1300 station in Seattle, formerly known as KOL & I can't for the life of me remember its current call.
